Making Nice

I'm still around. But it's hard to post when I'm abiding by the principle that if I can't say anything nice, I won't say anything at all. Which isn't a bad idea for political candidates to follow as well.


  • I'm grateful that political candidates are willing to donate their time and energy.
  • I believe (mostly) that they have good intentions. Really, I do.
  • I'm grateful that I live in a country where it's my duty to have an opinion. Better make that Opinion with a capital O, because, dude, I'm opinionated.
  • I firmly believe that we (Americans, Canadians, world citizens) have more in common than not.
  • I believe that people are basically good and kind.
  • I know all of us will be happy when the ballots are cast and the winners are announced and we can all go back to a more balanced existence.
  • Isn't it nice when the last debate is behind us?
  • I've never enjoyed roller coaster rides and the stock market isn't helping--although if Disneyland offered free lifetime rides on Big Thunder Mountain RR, I'd be first in line.
  • I love autumn. Even when the first frost comes early and wipes out zukes and tomatoes that are finally producing.

    Okay, enough positivity for now.


  1. come on, positivity is a good thing! don't give up on it just yet ;)

  2. This made me feel better so it has to be something good!

  3. THis is much nicer than what I have been sitting around doing..which is basically drinking heavily and whining "Let It End, Please Let It End, When Do We Vote............
