For those of you who celebrate Labor Day, I hope you had a great long weekend.
My brother and nephew are still here hanging out. My nephew works remotely and is working tomorrow from here. My brother is still on vacation and we’ll either game, BS in our living room, or head down stairs to watch some shows.
I hope you enjoyed the video. I was curious, so I looked this up. Have a great Tuesday, folks.
I hope you enjoy this video. It’s an important topic to me, because both my wife and mother have it. It is tough for them to read, to write, and even communicate, because of the wiring of their brains. Enjoy!
It’s Tuesday, folks and I hope you have a great one.
Kentucky got hit with what has been called “once in a thousand year flood”. We are getting ready to experience our first triple-digit heat wave. Are these just anomalies or is this a trend? Check out this Ted Talk on Extreme Weather and you be the judge.
I hope you enjoyed this short video. These videos from TedEd are all terrific. I hope you enjoyed it and learned something.
I read a lot of blogs. One of the blogs I follow mentioned a new 988 number for anyone who is experiencing suicidal thoughts. This prompted today’s Ted Ed video on depression.
I’ve never experienced this kind of thing, but my wife had some major issues with this. Until we finally figured out that she was suffering from fibromyalgia, things got better. You see, when we know what we have, we can make adjustments to compensate for it. It’s the unknown that causes us problems.
Anyway, I hope you learn something. I always do when I watch these.
Today’s Ted Talk was inspired by the news that came on July 11, 2022 in National Geographic heralding the first full-color images produced by NASA’s new Webb telescope. Here’s the link if you’re interested in reading more: https://apple.news/AdS1GvIqUT_WfrCh_skcI0w.
I hope all of you are having a great Tuesday! Enjoy the video, it is a good one.
It’s that time of year when we go to the beach, hang out by fire pits, get outside. For some of us, the summer months guarantee a sunburn. I’m very fair in complexion. I don’t tan. I burn, it flakes off, and I’m white again. Sunscreen is mandatory for me.
I hope you enjoy this video. There’s some good information in it. And for those who need a reason to do anything, this video explains the importance of sunscreen during these hot, summer months.
I try to stay far away from politics, but this is something that is hard to ignore. I believe in personal freedom. The freedom to choose to do what one feels is best for them. I’ll leave it at that. This recent landmark judgement will have a huge impact on many women in the United States. I hope a reasonable solution can be arrived upon. We should never return to the days before Roe v. Wade. Those days were the “dark ages” for women, in my opinion.
I found this on TedEd and thought it would be worthwhile to share. Many do not know the importance of what has become known as Juneteenth, so here’s a video explaining it. When you look at all the history books that have been written, you begin to realize how racial bias can impact generations. When I was in school, Juneteenth was never mentioned. Why? Because most of the textbooks were written by a race that enslaved another. To quote a character on The West Wing, who was being prepped for a position in the the attorney general’s office by the Josh Lyman character. He said, “You can’t kidnap another race and put them to work for no pay…” (paraphrased).
I hope you enjoy this and learn something. I purposely try to find short videos like this, because I know many of you have jobs and busy lives. It is an important topic, however. Something, everyone should know.
