There are millions of people in the world,
In every corner of the earth,
Each person has his own values,
Each person has his own worth.
Amazingly, we are different,
There are no two alike;
Except twins, of course,
They look alike, and sound alike,
But, may not think alike
Each person has his own mind;
To plan his own destiny.
Each one sets his own goals in life,
Including you and me.
Some people become scientists,
Doctors, nurses, too.
Artists, lawyers, teachers,
Please cut out this article and post at your workplaces, faith-based organizations, banks and post offices — but more importantly, give it to people you know who would help WIC recipients and seniors. Many may not receive this paper to know about this program.

Oppressive heat defines these days
Plants parched by lack of rain
Suffer dehydration unto death
While we humans succumb
to a malaise of sloth
What we face in our world:
Rampant corporate greed at high levels
Unemployed workers as Labor Day nears
Farmers whose crops are a loss
Floods in other lands
Wars and rumors of wars
All of this produces for us
Not the cooler air of September
Not clear rational minds
But rather ...
The Anguish of August

Over the years, I have written about how my three (now adult) children have vacillated between thinking their parents are bumbling idiots to believing that we are seers full of enlightenment and wisdom. As I move from being the parent to the consultant/coach for our youngest child, my ideas or suggestions are often met with “Yes, mother! I know that, mother!”
Clearly, we are currently in bumbling idiot mode.
My son moved out of his college apartment last May along with three of his roommates. The one remaining guy stayed until August.
The Roads of Life
There are many hills and valleys throughout life,
Just like the roads we travel;
There are many situations
That one must sometimes unravel.
We roll along and things are smooth
When suddenly there’s a bump!
We have to slow down and work things out,
Until we are over the hump.
Many times we’ve driven around and found,
A very curvy road ahead that we must get around;
As life itself can throw us curves
From which we must re-bound.
Sometimes we drive across a bridge
To get to the other side;

National and local news reports over the last several weeks have focused on efforts by environmentalists to ban plastic straws, which endanger marine life once they make their way to the oceans and apparently live on forever in landfills.
McDonald’s began the movement, announcing June 4 biodegradable paper straws would be used throughout the United Kingdom by 2019.
The company also said it would begin testing plastic straw alternatives in the United States later this year.
McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook spoke with CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” in early June.
