06/21/20 – Guidelines For Posting

CURRENT EVENTS

I have had to put myself on a strict Facebook diet as I cannot look at the horrible words and shaming I see posted so frequently on FB. When you share something on Facebook or write something, perhaps you should consider these rules.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

The Tao of Willie

By Willie Nelson with Turk Pipkin

Now the master of harmonization has created a guide to finding harmony in everyday life. The Tao of Willie captures his views on money, love, war, religion, cowboys, and other essential Willie topics.

Loosely based on the principles of the Chinese philosophy of the Tao Te Cheng, which Willie has admired and followed for much of his adult life, this inspiring and entertaining collection of “Willie wisdom”. (Source: The Book Itself) 

MOVIE, PLAY OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK

I’ve seen this film a number of times and just watched it again. It never fails to be enjoyable and it has a little lesson in it.

Bedazzled (2000)

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

“I Want To Dance” Scene from Pulp Fiction

Uma Thurman and John Travolta 

ART OF THE WEEK

Statute Removal

Since some people are into removing statutes, I thought I would add my suggestion for a statute that I would like removed.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

It not my place nor desire to be involved in the great pancake syrup controversy. But, I did benefit from the controversy because I learned of this incredible  woman who demonstrated that anyone can achieve the American dream of upward mobility regardless of the circumstances of their birth.

Nancy Green

Nancy Green (March 4, 1834 – August 30, 1923) was a storyteller, cook, activist, and hired to promote a corporate trademark as “Aunt Jemima”.

Green was born into slavery on March 4, 1834, near in Montgomery County, Kentucky. She was hired in 1890 by the R.T. Davis Milling Company to represent “Aunt Jemima”

In 1893 Green was introduced as Aunt Jemima at the World’s Columbian Exposition held in Chicago, where it was her job to operate a pancake-cooking display. Her amicable personality and talent as a cook helped establish a successful showing of the product, for which she received a medal and certificate from the Expo officials.

After the Expo, Green was offered a lifetime contract to adopt the Aunt Jemima moniker and promote the pancake mix. This marked the beginning of a major promotional push by the company that included thousands of personal appearances and Aunt Jemima merchandising.

Nancy Green maintained her job with Davis Milling (which was renamed Aunt Jemima Mills Company in 1914) until her death in 1923; she was still working as Aunt Jemima at the time.

Green was one of the organizers of the Olivet Baptist Church. Her career allowed Green the financial freedom to become an activist and engage in antipoverty programs. She was one of the first African-American missionary workers. She used her stature as a spokesperson to become a leading advocate against poverty and in favor of equal rights for individuals in Chicago.

  WEEK’S JOKE

PHYSICAL TRAITS

Since I live in Michigan, I have not been permitted to go to the gym or get a hair cut for the last three months until Monday, June 15. I did both that day and under the protocols I experienced, I know of no reason these two types of businesses had to be kept closed. I feel it was an arbitrary decision by our controlling governor and I understand in the case of gyms, a federal court feels the same way.

The above is a perfectly understandable mistake.

It is very difficult to tell the two apart.

CHARACTER TRAITS

Is it really necessary to shame everyone who sees the world different from you?

SOCIAL TRAITS

LEARNING TRAITS

    • The less I look at Facebook, the better I feel. Actually, it is the same with the news, the less I am exposed to the news, the better I feel. I’m a person who had three newspaper subscriptions and I have no idea how many magazine subscriptions. On another note, thank you Priscilla for taking the time to comment.

    • I wanted to watch the original, but was hard to get to it so I just passed on it. It would be interesting to compare the two. Thank you Joanne for taking the time to comment.
