Monday Musings - July 10, 2017

Breakfast on the Balcony
Looking at the Ocean
Oasis of the Seas
July 4, 2017
1. I wonder if I will ever tire of looking at the ocean and watching the sun rise and set? I don't think so.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

2. It is fun to watch the animals along a beach. We found a very interesting crab in San Juan.

3. It was hard to say goodbye to the Oasis of the Seas which served as our home for a week of travel and sights.

4. I noticed that the more I want to be someplace, the longer it takes to get there. I guess this is a corollary to the adage that a watched pot never boils.

5. This joke is an oldie, but it seems to be very true these days. How can you tell when a politician is lying? Their lips are moving. 

6. I came to a realization the other day that the difference between real and fake news is perspective.

7. The internet is blurring the lines between fact and fiction. I ran across an interesting 2016 New York Times piece about, How the Internet is Loosening Our Grip on the Truth


Coal no longer fuels America. But the legacy — and the myth — remain. - The Washington Post

The Islamic State Is Not Dead Yet - The New York Times

Republicans Take a Hatchet to Health Care - The New York Times

Quote for the Week

"Today the world looks to America for leadership. They look to what they call our miracle economy for an answer to how they may give their people a better life. And they look to our courage and might to protect them from the forces of tyranny, brutality, and injustice."

Ronald Reagan
Remarks to Marine Corps Basic Training Graduates in Parris Island, South Carolina, June 4, 1986
