FPQ #70 is: If you could choose anyone, past or present, and walk that proverbial mile in his or her shoes, who would you choose, and why would you choose that person? I have been thinking about this question for a couple of days, since I read Melanie’s response that she would choose Trump and […]Read More FPQ #70: The 39% of Americans
I want to participate in different challenges than I usually do. This is one of them. What I want and what I can have are very different right now. I want to be traveling somewhere, but instead am stuck at home. I want to be able to see and hug my friends, but only Zoom […]Read More SoCS: All I Want…
The worth of a human life is worth pondering these days. We hear so many statistics – how many have died from COVID-19 in the world, in the United States, in our state, in our communities. These are all just numbers and we rarely think of them individually as separate lives, with families, jobs, interests, […]Read More Six-Word Saturday: The Worth of a Human Life
Fandango has a provocative question he puts out every week, and while he doesn’t mean it to be politically controversial, this week it really is – of course, everything in the U.S. is political nowadays! Here’s the question(s). Do you think it’s premature for states to be lifting the stay-at-home, shelter-in-place, and social distancing restrictions? […]Read More FPQ #68: To Open or Not to Open? That Is the Question
The Ragtap Daily Prompt today is normal. Are we in a “new normal” era? Some people say yes, others say no. We have been experiencing this stay-at-home edict for over a month now, and our governor just extended it to May 30! And since 95% of the world is under some kind of stay-at-home order, […]Read More RDP: New Normal?
Fandango asks this question every Sunday, to reflect on the previous week. I could have voted for the same people for several weeks in a row now. So today I will: OUR FIRST RESPONDERS – HEALTH CARE WORKERS who have sacrificed so much in time and energy, and possibly, their own health, to treat and […]Read More Who Won the Week?
Fandango has a Sunday challenge called Who Won the Week? My vote goes to Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York. He has been a tireless advocate for the people of his state suffering or dying from the coronavirus. He has asked for test kits, personal protective equipment, masks, ventilators, and medical personnel, and keeps us […]Read More Who Won the Week?
Fandango’s Provocative Question #63 is a very relevant one: When we finally get through this COVID-19 pandemic at some point in the future, do you think the world is going to change from what is was like before anyone ever heard of coronavirus? Or will things quickly return to “business as usual”? I am not […]Read More FPQ: What Will Be Our Post-COVID-19 World?
It’s time for a new set of questions from Melanie’s Share Your World. Questions: On A Scale Of 1-10, How Strict Were Your Parents? This is relative. My parents were not strict in the sense that they never used corporal punishment (except one of the few times that my dad got angry, he chased me […]Read More SYW: On Parental Discipline, Time Wasting, Braces, Pizza Boxes, and the Coronavirus Pandemic
Fandango’s Provocative Question #61 is to ask what is our reaction to Don Lemon’s assessment regarding Trump’s handling of the coronavirus. On the video from CNN, Lemon tells us that Trump is gaslighting us and has been downplaying or downright lying about the seriousness and extent of the coronavirus pandemic. Don Lemon is spot on.
