Monday Musings - March 21, 2022


1. This is the third Monday of March 2022 and the first full day of Springtime! There are 40 Mondays remaining in the year. Use them wisely, the best part of the year is beginning.

2. Last evening, Chris and I went to a different place to enjoy Happy Hour. We sat on a nice park bench and watched the birds come and go over Sawfish Bay Park in Jupiter. It was very enjoyable and far away from the Sunday afternoon crowds at the other beaches--not that there are too many people, but the ocean side was too cool and everyone was enjoying the first day of Spring at the intracoastal waterway beaches. While there we watched a small green turtle feasting upon the remains of a kingfish and Chris got some really nice images. 

3. Read the following from the Washington Post item about John Bolton referenced below: Former national security adviser John Bolton told The Washington Post Friday that he thinks former president Donald Trump would have pulled the United States out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization had he been reelected in 2020. My thoughts: had the U.S. pulled out of NATO would Putin have been able to invade Ukraine sooner while the countryside was suitable for armored warfare?  Would the Ukrainians have been able to get an unlimited supply of Javelin missiles to thwart the Russian armored advances? Did Trump promise Putin Ukraine? Inquiring minds want to know.

4. Fun fact--the President does not set oil prices--the world market does. Check out Oil Pricing for more info. 

5. I realized yesterday that my return to Maryland is only a few weeks away. I am looking forward to summer in Maryland and personal family interactions through the summer.  

6. Today in History. March 21, 1965. In the name of African American voting rights, 3,200 civil rights demonstrators in Alabama, led by Martin Luther King Jr., begin a historic march from Selma to Montgomery, the state’s capital. Federalized Alabama National Guardsmen and FBI agents were on hand to provide safe passage for the march, which twice had been turned back by Alabama state police at Selma’s Edmund Pettus Bridge.
