Oh my goodness, don’t get me started,

Our politicians are greatly divided!

Republicans, Democrats, it doesn’t matter,

Whatever is suggested gets torn and tattered.

It seems they lost all their direction.

They forgot the American people

Who voted for them, with affection.

They were chosen to serve this nation,

LIVING THE VINTAGE YEARS: What on earth are we doing?

Thursday, April 19, 2018 by BONNIE LEE STRUNK in Opinion

Every April millions of people around the world celebrate Earth Day.

Focusing attention on our earth each April is a wonderful start, and participating in Earth Day activities often whets the appetite for doing more year-round to preserve our natural home.
