DEPRESSION, BE GONE!!

This made me teary eyed:


And, this made me cry:


Why, oh why, can't we have nice things like the neighbors? I always knew I would miss President Obama. But, this is ridiculous! The picture of The President with that adorable baby will be my computer wallpaper for the forseeable future; the Obama alert, this will be my lock screen page.


Trying to pretend he never went away.

As the old song says, if we ever needed you, we need you now (well, maybe it wasn't an old song - whatever!).

G20 SUMMIT

What a disgusting and dispicable display by those supposedly representing the United States of America.

Putin: 1
trump: 0

Russia Wins!



God, help us all!

OH, HOW I WISH FOR THE GOOD OLD DAYS!

A mere 4 1/2 months ago. As someone said on another site: "Give me MY PRESIDENT BACK"!





I would vote for a third Obama term - in a heartbeat!

JUSTIN TRUDEAU!

Shame on you! Cheating on Barack Obama, so soon? LOL



Canada's Justin Trudeau & France's Emmanuel Macron, at the G7 Summit in Italy.

Nostalgia:




Both sets of "couples" are way too cute. Hey, need something to cheer me up!

'' ARROW ''

So, Wednesday night was the Season 5 finale.

Too be honest, I have not watched very much of Seasons 4 & 5. Where & when did Oliver get a child? Who is the mother? When did Oliver & Felicity broke up? Questions, Questions, Questions! Truthfully? I'm really not all that interested in the answers.

I only started to watch Arrow because I read where John Barrowman was to play a villain - I only watched for John. And lately, his appearances were few & far between ( I watched CW: Legends of Tomorrow, just to see John ). I loved his Arrow character, the evil villain, Malcolm Merlyn & John's portrayal was perfect.

I hope we get to see Mr. Barrowman in another role soon, hopefully, Torchwood 5 with a return of Captain Jack Harkness, as the main focus. Plus, a return of Ianto ( as Jack's one & only love interest ) - also, bring back Tosh & Owen. As for the boring, uninteresting, lusting after Jack, cheating, boyfriend-abusing, Gwen - that's a character that did not belong in Torchwood - she added nothing to the series.

That's my opinion & I'm sticking to it! Guess I'm showing my utter dislike of the character.
Oh, BTW, I am officially done with Arrow.

SO, donald trump, " WITCH HUNT ", YOU SAY!

You mean like that witch hunt you perpetrated against the last legitimate and very popular person in the Oval Office, President Barack H. Obama? That one? So, I guess "denial" isn't just a river in Egypt!

You are surely the scum of the Earth. The pond scum is departing on his first (I hope his last) foreign trip. Only thing I can say, is rest of the World, look out!

JAMES COMEY FIRED!

About time & I am not surprised.

I always hoped that President Obama would have fired him lying, duplictious traitor, before he left the White House. Oh well, better late then never.

Now, if only it was as easy to get rid of that lying, duplictious traitor currently occupying the White House. Oh, and we don't believe that lie coming from the Oval Office; that he was fired due to the Clinton e-mail fiasco. donald, you fired him to try and stop the investigation into you & your campaign's Russian connections. Prove me wrong!







NOTE: Alright, Comey, I will take back some of my harsh statements about you.

AT LAST!

That raucous noise (alright, music) coming from the city public square, has finally stopped; I think the city ordinance states they were supposed to quit at 10pm - they played & sang until 10:15 pm.

Now I am aware that to most people, 15 extra minutes does not sound like that big of a deal. But, it is when you have been driven insane since early this morning! I'm tempted to contact the Mayor's office, first thing Monday morning & lodge a complaint.

I'm blaming the stress I've been under all day for eating 3 pieces of the cake I baked earlier - only thing I've had to eat all day. Yeah, blame it on Cinco de Mayo, sounds about right to me!

CINCO de MAYO

Bless everyone in my city celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Just wish it was not in my neighborhood!

The celebration is half a block up the street from my apartment building, in the city's public square - has been ongoing since 10:00am, even through the earlier rain. It is really getting on my last nerve; the incessent thrump, thrump, thrump from the music, is fast driving me crazy. Hard to hear my TV - have the volumn turned up 8 notches from my usual 14.

Only thing left to do is put in some earphones & listen to music, although, even that will not fully block out the sound. Oh well, Happy Cinco de Mayo. No, really! I mean it!




P.S.: Could the above images be considered stereotypes?? If so, truly sorry.

BAKING

Made my favorite, easy "go to" cake, after returning from my 3 times a week Physical Therapy session.

Needed something sweet to take my mind off my aching joints (& the rain deluge w/ wind - thank goodness it finally stopped).

H.R. 1628 American Health Care Act of 2017

Unlike most members of the 115th Congress, all Republican, I know what's in this AHCA.

This is one of the most morally degenerate, morally depraved & morally bankrupt actions, ever! And, sorry to say, I'm not surprised.

And, Congressional "Repugnants" & donald trump are taking a victory lap. The bill has not even passed the Senate, yet.

'' WE ARE SO DOOMED!"

To quote "Trouthunter" (a person commenting on donald trump's egregious assault on American History):

" I'm so tired of a dumb president. Can we just make Justin Trudeau President of all of North America and call it good?"

I totally & wholeheartedly agree, Trouthunter! Somewhere, someone, please, please make it happen. I'm so desperate!!












A person can hope, can't they?

YAY!

I can finally use my Computer, after problems that started last year (viruses, spyware & malware), when I downloaded Windows 10.

Thanks to the wonderful gentleman at Support Hello, who fixed everything, getting rid of a lot of unwanted folders,junk, you name it! I actually started out purchasing "Super PC Cleaner, for $39.90 - kept getting box w/ message, on my start page, about the 607 items that needed to be cleaned up. After talking with the Technician, the Software would not download due to all the viruses, spyware & malware on my PC. Ended up purchasing a one-time, one-year plan for $199.99; original 1 yr amount was $249.00 - but the Lifetime amount he offered me originally at $199.99, plus $7.99 a month for Tech Support, was no longer available, Therefore, I ended up with a bargain price.

Happy Me!

COOKING, AGAIN

Started out this morning full of determination - was going to cook a full dinner, with an orange-glazed bundt cake for dessert.

Well, I remembered I had a physician's office visit & lab work for later that afternoon. So, that put the kibosh on cooking all day.

But, I did finish three dishes; Roasted Brussels Sprouts w/ Bacon, Sweet Potato Soufflé & Dressing/Stuffing. Left undone, Roast Chicken, Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes & the Cake. Maybe, tomorrow.

Below, photos of the three completed dishes (I totally did not like the Stuffing!).

" STAYIN' ALIVE: A GRAMMY SALUTE "

To the Bee Gees - Barry Gibb in attendance (R.I.P., Robin & Maurice).

Just finished listening to John Legend, at the piano w/ Stevie Wonder on harmonica, sing "How Do You Mend A Broken Heart". Outstanding performance - made me seriously tear up.

Now, the great Celine Dion (who also paid tribute to Andy Gibb) is singing " Immortality ". And, she hugged Barry at the end. She is really making we cry.

And, there is still an hour to go! Already, I'm having so many ah ha moments. After so many years, you tend to forget & find yourself exclaiming, Oh yeah, they wrote that too! Amazing how the words to the all songs come back to you.

Now, back to the show.

"Hitler Didn't Even Sink To Using Chemical Weapons!"

Seriously, Sean Spicer? SERIOUSLY!

To quote you, "Hitler brought them into Holocaust Centers." You are beyond ignorant. Don't you mean Concentration Camps or Death Camps or Gas Chambers? I notice you're already on your fourth "clarification".

How does this man keep his job, as Press Secretary? Oh right, I forgot, he works for Donald Trump. Never mind.
