Prince Harry and Megan Markle’s wedding this morning a sight to behold. A royal wedding in all its splendor, yet simple.
I shed a few tears.
It was a wedding the likes of none would ever have thought could occur in stately conservative England. Megan a person of color. The ceremony combined her ancestry with that of England’s. The ceremony equally combining the traditions of the black and white races.
This coming together did not have its beginning today. It started with Prince Harry’s mother Diana. Were it not for her, the mountain would have not moved.
The ceremony signified the coming of a new age. A cultural togetherness. The door to a new era completely opened.
Comcast! Will the company ever learn? How Comcast has become the giant it is, I do not understand. The company cannot take care of the simple problems of its customers.
Yesterday, I could not change channels on my two TV sets with either remote. Spent a half hour on the phone. Comcast’s representative extremely helpful. But, could not solve the problem.
Advised me to go to nearest Comcast and ask for the XR-15. Comcast’s most recent remote. I told her service at the local Comcast completely inept. I had no choice, however.
Brought the old remotes as directed. Asked to trade for 2 XR-15’s. Was told they had no XR-15’s. Only 2 of the model I had brought in.
When can I get XR-15? I don’t know. I pressed, explaining I was told to get the XR-15. Asked her to bring my record up on the computer. No time. I was the only customer with 2 Comcast employees in attendance.
Seeing I was adamant (politely so), she now told me she had made a mistake. The 2 remotes she gave me were XR-15’s.
Who was bullshitting who here? I took the remotes and walked out. Too old to wage war. I assume the 2 new remotes should work bevcuse they are the same model I had returned.
My next problem is doing whatever has to be done to get the remotes synchronized with the sets. This is a task my generation was not prepared for.
The Chart Room and Hogfish last night. Especially enjoyed Hogfish. Sat at the corner of the bar and people watched.
A Conch train and a pedestrian came into contact early last evening near the intersection of Truman and White. The train was empty. The pedestrian thought to be homeless. He was helicoptered to Miami.
No further news available.
Bocce playoffs begin today. Assuming the courts are dry.
I miss playing.
My team Don’s Place did not make the playoffs. Sad. Maybe they need me back.
Larry Smith’s team Not Don’s Place did make the playoffs. I telephoned Larry to congratulate him.
Another school shooting yesterday. This time outside Houston, Texas. The Santa Fe High School. Ten dead, ten wounded.
Trump was on TV almost immediately. His usual utterings. Terrible, been going on for years, no decades. Like it is not his fault in any fashion. Claimed he is committed to putting an end to the shootings.
Trump speaks with a forked tongue. He rattled in a similar fashion following the Parkland shooting 3 months ago which resulted in 17 deaths. Recall, he even brought students, teachers and parents to the White House. Said he was not afraid of the NRA. He was going to do something about the shootings.
Two weeks ago, Trump spoke before the NRA Convention. He was clear in his support: You have a friend in the White House.
Relationships are disintegrating. Swifter than in previous times. Even world leaders speak openly in disparaging terms with those they disagree. Respect lacking.
Trump bears significant responsibility. He bad mouths everyone. A tough talker. The bully standing on the corner.
License to orally degrade has spread swiftly. Benjamin Netanyahu’s son an example. His name. Yair. Yesterday, Yair redid the wording on a Turkish flag and ran it on Instagram: Fuck Turkey.
Enjoy your day!
OK, so what is your suggestion for ‘putting an end to the shootings’ ? It isn’t going to be another law or more gun free zone signs, but, you must have some thoughts on it.
The Royal Weddings …. the fairytale lives on in children and some adults alike.
Comcast, a monopoly of sorts that is way too big and powerful for their own good. Customer service is not high on their list.
Trump should immediately reverse his decision to repeal the efforts President Obama put in place regarding gun ownership and mental health. Of course he will not because his primary objective is to remove all traces of 44, even when it makes good sense not to.
The reply was meant for Lou.
