Monday Musings - July 26, 2021


1. It is the fourth Monday of July. My favorite month of the year is almost over.

2. How about them Orioles? They are 6-3 since the All Star break. Is there hope? They swept the Nationals!

3. Traffic! Traffic! It is back to normal which means too many cars to fit on the roads. 

4. Message to the Masses: Get Vaccinated.

5. There is nothing better than spending time with family on the weekends.

6. Are you watching the Olympics? I am. It is something different than the usual junk on TV. 

7. Who are Americans? My answer--all of us!

8. Today in History. On July 26, 1775, the U.S. postal system is established by the Second Continental Congress, with Benjamin Franklin as its first postmaster general. Franklin (1706-1790) put in place the foundation for many aspects of today’s mail system.

Ronald Reagan Quote for the Week

It does my spirit good to be among thousands of Americans from our heartland, people with faith in God, the United States, and themselves. And despite the doom-criers that are abroad in the land, I believe that most of America shares your faith. But there hasn't been enough recognition of the part that you play in the lives of all of us. Not too long ago a new, young Congressman from the heart of our biggest city was placed on the agricultural committee of the House -- not exactly a case of a round peg in a round hole. And his first contribution to the committee was a pronouncement that government should confiscate all food and divide it equally among all the people, because food was a natural resource belonging to everyone.
