Agnes Fenton recently turned 110. Happy birthday! God bless!
The secret to her longevity was born in the early 1940s. Agnes had a brain tumor. She asked the doctor what she should do to avoid another. He told her to each day drink 3 Miller High Life beers and 1 shot of Johnny Walker Black Label scotch. She followed the doctor’s instructions religiously.
I spent a portion of yesterday fine tuning last night’s blog talk radio show. Two topics hit a nerve.
One involved my comments re the federal judge to whom the Tom Brady case has been assigned. I believe he is out of line in the manner he is handling the matter.
The other concerned blanket media censorship of the California class action suit against Monsanto. The people’s right to know has become a joke. We only get to watch, hear, and read what the six corporations controlling 90 percent of the media want us to.
Spent a bit of time working on a love book. A joke! Me writing a love story. My publisher however said give it a try. I feel like a fish out of water.
Three books in the works now. The other two Growing Up Italian and Greece, The First Time. I hope to finish one at some point.
Roostica for dinner before the show. Bobby has added a new desert to the menu. Salted caramel gelato. Outstanding!
I mentioned a big rain monday around dinner time. It was big! 3.4 inches.
Key West hotel business up the past five years. Forbes says the best in the U.S. In spite of the high profit levels, the hotels and tourist industry in general continue to pay small hourly wages. Most receiving $10-12 per hour.
Today’s Key West Citizen editorial says there is a food problem, also. This most of us knew. The extent, not. The editorial says there are 25,000 Key West residents. Four hundred families cannot afford sufficient food. That number equates to 16 percent of the population. A disgrace! Another example of the hotels, etc. getting fat and forgetting to take their help with them.
The same argument can be made for affordable housing. Higher wages might eliminate or lessen the need for taxpayer dollars being spent for affordable housing.
The regular lobster season begins tomorrow. Lobsterfest weekend ahead. Going to be delicious.
Some crazy people out there. Especially, politicians. They want to limit the number of births by the poor.
An Arkansas legislator has submitted a bill that would permit the State to pay unwed low income mothers on Medicaid if they get an IUD implant. Mothers fitting the description would receive $2,500.
Enjoy your day!
