Conventions fail u

The national conventions to choose candidates for president are near the end as I write.    have stayed silent for two reasons --the conventions have failed to produce solutions to three problems -- safety of the nation, jobs for workers and health care we can afford.  My health problems is the third reason.

The Democrats have ignored ISIS even though terrorist attacks continue.  Neither they nor the Republicans know how to improve the economy and ordinary citizens face health costs they cannot meet.

I may be unable or unwilling to propose measures to address the problems  but I will stay  informed..

I have a snall hope

Will it matter? The Republicans launched their convention Monday night with some eloquent speeches, leading up to the nomination of Trump for president later.  The convention goes on for a week and will be followed by the Democrat convention next week.

Will any of it matter?  The economy  must  be repaired and the president must show some leadership in halting the murders of policemen.  ISIS controls the world, killing with bombs, explosives and trucks.

Can the Republicans select a leader who will make a difference?    I am just a little bit  hopeful.

Terrorists strike again

Eighty-four were killed and 202 were wounded by a terrorist truck driver in Nice, France, Thursday morning.   Terrorists have struck France three times in a period of several weeks.  Terrorist groups have waged war against several nations.  Hundreds have been killed by ISIS and other terrorists.

When will we return  their attacks?

My blog will live

No, I have not dropped my blog entirely.  Actually, it is not the case that I have lost the urge to write; just the opposite, I have too many subjects challenging me for comments.  Murdering five policemen and two bailiffs was more than I can handle.  Maybe, I will recover my mental and emotional balance  in a few days.

Thanks, Jon, for the vegetables

Jon brought us some tomatoes, egg plant,   peppers, shelled peas and cucumbers, I should really enjoy those vegetables.   Thanks, Jon

Goodbye trees

Hey, you couldn't recognize our backyard now.  Five or six trees have been cut down; their stumps and  limbs removed and hauled off.  That left a bare area needing grass or flowers.

Three pines, two victims of bugs, were cut as was the tall tree that leaned over the house and gave us worry when a strong wind struck us. A better method of controlling pine weevils must be found or the South will lose much  of its income.

Thanks, Jen. Enjoy the holiday

Happy birthday, Jen!  Enjoy your double holiday.  Thanks for taking care of me.  Without your help I could not go on.

Let us lead the world in restoring peace

 Millions of us will observe Independence Day    this weekend in one way or another, with plenty of food sure to be included. Some tragic events, including the attack on the Turkey airfield, started the holidays in a way we are coming to expect.  Our leadership is called on to do more to give  us peace.   Let us celebrate
as a great nation, leading the world in keeping peace and prosperity.
