ART OF THE WEEK
Art From Peru’s Man-Made Floating Islands In Lake Titicaca
I bought this hanging decoration in 2017 from one of the Indians on the floating islands.
They, like everyone I saw in Peru; absolutely refused to accept handouts. They want you to buy something from them, not give them something for nothing.
This is a character trait that many in the USA need to adopt. And for all you folks with Big Hearts, please consider giving people a hand and not a handout.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Dame Olivia Newton-John (26 September 1948 – 8 August 2022) was a British-Australian singer, actress and activist. She was a four-time Grammy Award winner whose music career included five number one hits and another ten Top Ten hits and 14 of her albums (including two Platinum and four 2× Platinum) have been certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
With global sales of more than 100 million records, Newton-John is one of the best-selling music artists from the second half of the 20th century to the present. (Source: Wikipedia)
JOKE OF THE WEEK
But I love them anyway.
Even a little exercise, pays huge dividends.
If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.
Every day is another chance to be a better person.
As long as someone isn’t hurting others,
perhaps we should allow them to live as they wish.
What are you putting off?
