There are predators and parasites in our midst. Why do we harbor them? Generosity is inborn. It cannot be erased. Also, those who seek to abuse you generally do not kill, as long as they are served.
When I was nine years old, I was sent to a non-denominational Christian boarding school which transported the children to a different church each Sunday. One evening we were even sent to some sort of “revival” in a tent where the children were exhorted to “take Jesus as their Savior.”
So, I was randomly checking my bookmarks in the chrome browser and ran across a link to the Trump campaign expenditure report for July 2016 in which more than $1.6 million for Giles Parscale showed up. Further up the list there is a payout to ACE Specialties, a woman-owned Louisiana firm that has the exclusive contract for distributing Trump gear, especially the red hats.
So, the story began about two decades ago when, after a majority of my upper teeth had absented themselves, I determined to have the rest extracted and a prosthetic device installed. The dentist wasted no time, pulled the teeth, made an imprint and within about a week I was fitted with a device that serves me still.
I have figured out that I can turn the cell phone off all the way and then it does not use any power.
So, now back to work. Still no power in the house, but the trucks are up the street.
Power returned about eleven AM.
