Random Thoughts on the Eve of the W-End.....

It has been quite a week around our World and quite challenging as President Trump took steps to make sure the Affordable Care Act was fatally undermined, decertified the Iran Deal and raised the rhetoric over NAFTA as it pushed the notion of Tax Reform that has been debunked repeatedly--in addition to going after Puerto Rico.    He has had a very busy week no doubt.    

Not withstanding the challenging week at hand, I continue to take heart by the generosity of spirit throughout our Community.   I am  gearing  up to hit the road visiting with the Boy Scouts at the Annual El Camino Real Camporall.   This year, it will be held at Camp Pendelton.  I also had the pleasure to be supportive of Our Fathers' Table Annual Fundraiser as I also worked away on initiatives throughout the week.  As it was interesting and challenging, the need to remain optimistic and be humorous about (as s beautifully noted with this I captured courtesy of the team at the Foundation for Economic Education),  here are some "Food 4 thought" to reflect on the eve of the weekend: 

How long before trash disappears (years): Plastic bag: 20 Styrofoam cup: 50 Plastic bottle: 450 Glass: 1 million

When you see now defunct companies like Juicero receiving $120M selling $400 machines that squeeze juice from a bag, you got huge bubble.
Joseph Jones added,

  1. Easy work: 1 complaining 2 pretending 3 blaming 4 judging 5 resenting Hard work: 1 inspiring 2 learning 3 teaching 4 trusting 5 empowering
Be humble. You may be wrong. Be generous. You may be remembered. Be interested. You may stay teachable. Be yourself. You will be happier.
Onward to the weekend with all its' possibilities as I wish all a great one and a great week ahead....
