    Thank goodness there is still a woman who can inspire and be a real role model for young girls. I have given her diary to all the young women in my life.

    1. I will never go Christmas shopping ever again with my wife.
    2. I saw Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker over the weekend and I’m still not sure if I liked it or not.
    3. My 14 year old son thinks he’s smarting than me.
    4. My wife wants to go on a date night to see “knives Out,” for me going to the movies is an emotional thing. I have to have an emotional attachment to the movie in some way before I go see it. It does not work for me to go to a movie and I don’t have an emotional attachment to it. So going to see “Knives Out” will be a trying experience for me.
    5. I’m thinking to a New Year’s resolution that I can easily break.

      Don, I saw Knives Out and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a classic closed location mystery like Agatha Christie wrote. One fun part was listening to Daniel Craig’s “Southern” accent. There are so many different ones, that people who don’t live in the South have trouble with them. But he does a very good Columbo like role.

        I’ve thinking about going to see Knives Out just because of the cast. Good to hear that you liked it. The trailer had me howling over Daniel’s accent. 😀

      Re #3 This is a phase. As long ago as it was, I distinctly recall thinking how annoyingly pathetic my parents were when I was in my early to mid teens. If you can avoid killing him or kicking him out of your life in the next 8-10 years, he’ll learn how little knows and must rely on your wisdom again once he’s out in the world. It’s amazing how that works.

    Ukrainians are still dying. Putin is still killing them. Trump and his fellow criminals remain enablers of not just the death of Ukrainians, but the disposal of any notion that the USA is a trusted ally.

      OK, I had a wonderful day, but we’re continuing to virtually party with all the lovely people in that vid at Kennedy Center Honors minus iQ45. The whole show is worth a looksee. That made it even more beautiful. Fun evening. Yup it’s now my birthday & I feel joyous! That’s my excuse for all the fun or maybe informative (or not) posts. But am gladly sticking to my birthday excuse! 😂 (Nerdy, I promise my posts won’t be outlandish! 😇)

        Thank you all for the lovely wishes. Instead of bar hopping, we went restaurant hopping. No brunch on Tuesday. So we had the idea of doing small bites at various places, this way we’d get the brunch variety experience! So our culinary experience treated us to not only American South, but African, Carribbean, Peruvian, & Argentinian cuisine. Then we rolly polly-ied home. 😂 Now have to do penance sit ups or something before Christmas Dinner! 👀 💃

        Much love & Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays. 💖💖🍷

      This just turned up in my notes, so it may be a good time to post it here for us all:

      “The Hermit

      The Hermit stands isolated on a snowy mountain peak, holding up a lantern to guide those below. This is The Lighted Lamp of Truth, containing within it the six-pointed Star, the Seal of Solomon. The Hermit carries a patriarch’s staff to use on the narrow Path of Initiation. His cloak is the mantle of discretion, he partly covers the Lantern with it as if to protect Truth from profane eyes.
      He is ready to go to the help of every one who cries for Light. He remains on the heights throughout the long nights of spiritual darkness. Only those who Dare, Do, and Keep Silent can see the Light of The Hermits Lamp. “Be humble, if thou wouldst attain Wisdom; be humbler still when Wisdom thou hast mastered.”
      (from The Voice of Silence)

      The number 9 is the number of pure Intellect; also the number of Initiation, because it is the Trinity of Trinities. In it, all numbers are gathered up, to emerge once more in a new cycle of ten. The six-pointed star, the Seal of Solomon, is also figured as a 9, by counting the outer and inner points in a special way.

      Every Soul is upon some step of The Path; we ourselves may have passed them on the Way. When we refuse to recognize the Divine Center in others we are bearing false witness, for we are not seeing our fellowmen as they are.

      Gautama Buddha has said, “The light of truth’s high noon is not for tender leaves,” and from the Scriptures come the words of those who have faith, “Thy Word shall be a Light unto my Path.”

      Blessed Be {{{ ♥️ TOD ♥️}}}

        Oh, yes, and for the record, The Hermit may also be female, in which case her staff will be that of a matriarch.. and the sooner this planet returns to matriarchy, the sooner life forms will begins to thrive again, in balance.

      Being an artist, I am noticing from this photo Sasha has PBO’s nose and Michelle’s head shape and body shape. Overall I think Sasha resembles Michelle closest. Malia’s head shape and body shape resembles Barack’s more closely. Her nose resembles Michelle the most. I have always thought she looks most like her Dad. Both girls have grown up to be beautiful inside and out.
