ABE AND ME

‘You Can Choose Your Friends, but Not Your Family’

In this case, I was lucky to do both.

This is a best friend, growing up together in the same neighborhood and sharing very similar interests. 

In good times, in bad times, near or far, to this day, we are still in touch!

Thursday Doors: D-Day Invasion 75th Anniversary – Sir Winston Churchill


It is the 75th anniversary of the WWII D-Day Invasion. On this day the allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy, France. American, British, and Canadian troops were among those who fought in the greatest seaborne assault in history.

Sir Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister at that time, planned part of the D-Day invasion while aboard the RMS Queen Mary. The luxury liner was converted and refitted into a troop ship during WWII.

The door in this post is that of the “Churchill Suite”; this is the actual suite Churchill stayed in when he was on the ship.

The always awesome Norm from Norm 2.0 has a great weekly feature called, “Thursday Doors”.  He invites fellow bloggers to share unique and interesting doors that we happen upon.  Today’s door takes on double duty with a very special meaning (a door for Thursday Doors and historical signifance on June 6th, 1944.).

Rihanna declared world’s richest female musician

A report from the Agence France Presse. Our thanks to Peter Jordens for bringing this item to our attention.

Singer, makeup entrepreneur, lingerie designer and now the first black woman to head a top luxury fashion house — Rihanna has racked up a $600 million fortune to become the world’s richest female musician, Forbes said Tuesday.

The 31-year-old — born Robyn Rihanna Fenty in Barbados — has amassed wealth exceeding that of Madonna ($570 million), Celine Dion ($450 million) and Beyonce ($400 million), whose husband Jay-Z was just named the world’s first billionaire rap star.

Rihanna’s ranking puts into fresh perspective one of her signature lyrics — “work, work, work, work, work,” which opened her 2016 dancehall smash “Work.”

Since bursting onto the scene in 2003, she has spun her triumphs in music into entrepreneurial gold, launching her makeup brand Fenty Beauty — co-owned by French luxury giant LVMH…

It’s been a long day


‘To, once again, find meaning in the simplest moments. Eva Hagberg Fisher, How to Be Loved: A Memoir of Lifesaving Friendship. (HMH Books. February 4, 2019) … and more!!

Live & Learn

“I surrender,” I said, first under my breath. Then again, a little louder, “I surrender.” I saw a bird, and another one. Objectively, I was in a beautiful place. Objectively, my body had been strong enough to take me out here. It was the subjectivity, the comparison with where I thought I should be, that hurt. “I surrender.” I didn’t need an answer. I just needed to breathe. To, once again, find meaning in the simplest moments.

It’s Time For Action …


No more waiting!! … 2018 gave you a mandate: OVERSIGHT!! … ‘Representative Richard Neal from Massachusetts is Chairman of the House Ways and Means committee, and as such is the person who would need to ask the state of New York for copies of the returns. And … he is refusing. Between this, and Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to open an impeachment investigation, I am beginning to wonder if the democrats are in cahoots with the republicans!!’ .. DEMs are looking weak!! .. and they are losing me!!

Filosofa's Word

Don Trump’s taxes have been in dispute for years.  He is the first president since Reagan … more than thirty years ago … to refuse to make public his most recent tax returns.  His excuses have been many, none of them valid.  First, he said we weren’t smart enough to understand them, for their complexity was far beyond our ability to comprehend.  He fails to remember that among “we” are tax lawyers, accountants, and other professionals who would far better understand his returns than he himself does.  Then he said that nobody cared … another blatant lie.  His next excuse was that he was being audited, but that argument was struck down when the IRS said that while it was true he was under audit, there was no reason that should stop him from releasing his tax returns.

Then, in light of the fact that he refused to divest himself…
