POLITICS—- On local level I have been involved in several issues over my many years. Luckily I still have friends on both sides and some pretty good sources still. I am hearing many Dems are furious with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schmur for not winning back the Senate. Of course he is only one person, but the leader always gets blamed. The most fuming issues are the monies spent on non winners and some terrible polling. When you spend $90 million and a candidate loses, there is
going to be angst. The monies spent on Senate races is totally obscene and me included, every American should be embarrassed by it. (Note, I do realize the Dems could win back the Senate if they sweep the two runoff races in Georgia, in January, but chances of winning both are slim and none.)
COVID—- I spoke today with a highly thought of behavioral health expert and his feelings are that even when we get back to “normalcy” the negative impact of this pandemic could last for years for many people. Just being isolated takes it toll on many, let alone the economic impact. Let’s hope this is not the case and we all can be as positive as possible which helps.
FOOD—- In case you have not tried the Beyond Burger, do so. For my money it is the best vegetarian product ever made and there have been some good ones. Let me know what you think.
HELP OUT—- 3 things you can do this holiday season and for that matter, any season, 1) Give a homeless pet a loving home 2) Buy a toy for a child that might not get one 3) Check on you elderly neighbors, give them a card or some food, they will love it and you will too.
