Been meaning to do this for a very long time.
It was the Nevada Shakespeare Company project that got me to thinking I should start my own blog and develop a new skill. Consequently I have been spending the past few days fooling around with this just to see if I can get my creative juices flowing and do some new things on the net. So far so good.
As with any new project there are frustrations, learning curves and challenges. But we shall persevere. The plus is that it is great fun fooling around with this medium and figuring it all out.
So.. What did I do today besides fool around with WordPress? Paid bills, straightened up a few things, answered emails, made a lovely salad with the left over chicken from our dinner out the other evening and drank good wine. Caught up on Downtone Abby and watched the Lego Movie and yes I liked it. All pretty mundane and plebeian. That was my day.
This is what was going on in my world today. All of which I have no control over.
Israelis and the Palestinian East Bank Gaza. Will the world end because of this craziness? I believe the Palestinians need their own country. I also believe that have to stop trying to destroy Israel. Oh and I do think that Israel needs to stop building those settlements. Come on guys, both of you need to stop poking each other in the eye with a stick.
The Ukraine. My grandmother on my mother’s side was born there. She considered herself Russian but they considered her a Jew. The war goes on. Another Malaysian plane was downed. This one by possible Russian Seperatives. No one knows the truth for sure but we can suspect. Mostly Dutch Nationals on board. A brilliant AID scientist. A young woman who was doing cancer research. Mothers, fathers, children, gone all gone in the craziness. One can hardly breath because of the sorrow over this senseless occurrence.
Around my hood the the Clear Creek wildfire near the southern edge of Carson City is 100% contained. So was the Evans fire. Reno police are investigating a shooting that left one person dead Friday night. I-80 westbound near Lockwood is open again after an earlier accident closed the road for about an hour. Ricci Kilgore is lucky to be alive after getting lost this week in the Nevada desert.
That’s about it for my life today.
