Today is my birthday. I am 81 years old. Amazing!
In the opening of my blog talk radio show last night, I briefly commented on the FBI’s report re Hillary Clinton. The report had come out earlier in the day.
A point I made was lets not have more Congressional hearings. As with Benghazi. Following the show, I turned on TV. There was Paul Ryan expressing his disgust with the decision and indicating there would be Congressional investigations. Probably by the Oversight and Judiciary Committees.
Lets stop with partisan inspired hearings that cost a ton of taxpayer dollars and go on ad infinitum. Again, ike Benghazi. With the final result being zip. Lets get into jobs, the economy and security.
We must stop being a gotcha society.
I want to make mention of FBI Director James Coomey’s long report detailing reasons, etc. Not the way things are done! Normally, a report is made that there was not sufficient evidence to charge. That’s it.
The normal statement would have resulted in less furor than has been heard since yesterday morning. Though there would have been outcries. Such is the nature of our society.
Another item discussed I discussed was of more interest. To me. Should be to you also.
It was announced that the British government had given permission to scientists to create the first genetically modified baby.
The good book indicates that man is to give to God that which is God’s and to man that which is. Life is within God’s province. Not man’s.
My morning was spent with the heart doctor. Assured me everything looked good with the catheterization results. I have problems, but they have not magnified in recent years.
No answer as to why I had the chest and throat pains.
Funny part is I have not had any pains in two weeks. Not since I went to the doctor complaining of them.
Turtle news. Some one up on the Florida mainland was arrested for stealing turtle eggs. From the mother loggerhead turtle as she was laying them into the sand and from the sand hole itself. One hundred seven of them.
I was unaware people eat turtle eggs.
The eggs are round. Shelled. Eaten raw or slightly heated.
There are people who believe turtle eggs impart sexual stamina. I could use the 107.
My 81st birthday will be simple. I want to have lunch and read the newspapers at the Cuban Coffee Queen. Tonight, I want to enjoy Robert and Ally. I am having dinner with Lisa and the family.
Enjoy your day!
Happy 81st birthday, Louis! My mother would have been 81 years old this year as well, God rest her soul. Unfortunately, cancer took her at 74.
Enjoy your day and be thankful for your health, however, imperfect it may be, and your family and the paradise you are fortunate enough to be able to afford to enjoy every day.
Love your blog. Read it every day,
Happy birthday Louis… Enjoy your day..
