Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

After giving it much thought, I have decided to limit my viewing of TV News shows. And I aim to severely limit my blog commentary regarding all these stupid racial events. They are presented by the networks in inflammatory film clips which are repeated over and over until they eventually become nearly meaningless.

I watch and I grow angry.

There is one thing I can do to avoid being invaded by all this media manufactured anger.

Stop participating.

Stop watching. Fox News. Stop listening to Bill O'Reilly. No more Tavis Smiley --  Etc.

If I cannot find anything but controversial and rage-inducing subjects to write about in my blog, then I am not looking hard enough.

There is way too much anger this world now. I do not want to add to it.


Did You Know . . .?

Coffee beans are not beans. They are actually the seeds of berries, which are often called “coffee cherries.”



On this day in 1872 the Dei Gratia, a small British brig under Captain David Morehouse, spotted the Mary Celeste, an American vessel, sailing erratically but at full sail near the Azores Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The ship was seaworthy, its stores and supplies were untouched, but not a soul was onboard. The last entry in the captain's log shows that the Mary Celeste had been nine days and 500 miles away from where the ship was found by the Dei Gratia.

Apparently, the Mary Celeste had been drifting toward Genoa on her intended course for 11 days with no one at the wheel to guide her. Captain Briggs, his family, and the crew of the vessel were never found, and the reason for the abandonment of the Mary Celeste has never been determined.
