I’m having one of those weeks where I feel like I’m a day ahead. Not that I have a lot of accomplished, just that I think today is Thursday and not Wednesday.
I think yesterday was the first time I really threw the football with my son. Yes, we’ve tossed the ball around, but this time he was actually catching them and I could catch the majority of balls thrown towards me. I know for sure yesterday was the first time I saw him throw a spiral, which was fun to teach him, btw.
“I may be wrong, I may stand before you in six months and say, ‘Hey, I was wrong.’ I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that, but I’ll find some kind of an excuse.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sure has a lot of work ahead of him after this summit, as if he didn’t have enough work already. For instance, South Korea was caught off guard when President Trump told Kim Jong-un ‘war games’ with South Korea would cease. Somewhere in Texas, Rex Tillerson is enjoying retirement.
Mercedes Schlapp is the White House Director of Strategic Communications. She tweeted this two years ago.
This shouldn’t happen when conservatives control the White House, Senate, and the House of Representatives, at least on what they campaign on.
The U.S. government had a $147 billion budget deficit in May, an increase of 66 percent from the same month last year as the ledger took a hit from declining revenue and higher spending, according to Treasury Department data released on Tuesday.
I’m months behind on this news but Rudy Giuliani is getting a divorced. I remember when he was the presumptive front-runner of the Republican party and discussing having his wife sit in on cabinet meetings, which caused a stir.
The kids will be playing basketball this summer and yesterday I received an introductory email from one of their coaches. In his email, he proclaims his love for basketball and provides his basketball resume, of sorts. His two sons are named Michael and Jordan. I’m guessing he’s a fan.
I know someone who vacuums her mattress. She has a mattress pad or cover or whatever they are called, but still prefers to vacuum it once a month to remove dead skin cells, allergens, and the like.
I bet a lot of people neglect to clean or dust the top of their refrigerators. I bet a lot of people neglect to clean or dust the floor beneath their refrigerators. I bet a lot of people neglect to clean their refrigerators.
Until yesterday I didn’t know there was a version of Monopoly for cheaters. Isn’t that just real life? It’s only cheating if you get caught.
Dan Paul on The TICKET spoke of his upcoming spinal fusion surgery. His surgeon is going through the stomach, but my surgeon went through my back and stretched or pulled my back muscles to the side. My surgeon explained going through the front would allow for faster back recovery since the back muscles wouldn’t be touched, but didn’t like the risk of going through the digestive organs. Paul also spoke about how he could totally relate and can see the spiral of painkiller addiction and suicide becoming reality. He spoke the truth. I could totally relate.
I’m one of those who enjoys reading about the news business. When it comes to the evening news, I prefer the ‘CBS Evening News” and have committed to them since Charlie Gibson left ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’. I really liked how Scott Pelley would deliver the news, a very no thrills approach, and thought I would have turned to another channel once he was removed from the chair. I don’t think the broadcast is as good as it was, so I’m a bit surprised their ratings have increased by double digits since his departure.
And while Glor has eked out some ground – viewership during his tenure on “CBS Evening News” is up 1% compared to the year prior to his launch, and up 10% from Pelley’s final month in mid-2017 – the CBS program remains well behind its direct competitors, ABC’s “World News Tonight” and NBC’s “NBC Nightly News.”
