If you think anyone is sane you just don’t know enough about them.

Last night’s America’s Got Talent: The Champions started with 10-year-old magician Issy Simpson, who was the runner-up in Britain’s Got Talent 2017. While she didn’t make it through to the finals, her act combining her love of magic and reading was fantastic and it’s obvious that if she continues down this path, Issy, also known as “the female Harry Potter,” has got a hugely successful future ahead of her!
We must be listened to: above and beyond our personal experience, we have collectively witnessed a fundamental unexpected event, fundamental precisely because unexpected, not foreseen by anyone. It happened, therefore it can happen again: this is the core of what we have to say. It can happen, and it can happen everywhere.

A Lovely Example of the Lack of Respect For Others That Just Keeps Growing in This Country. Thank You Gronda For Another Well Researched Article.
Like any faith-based entity, there are those who operate on the extreme fringes like with the Black Hebrew Israelites. Some could be heard acting out in racist and anti-Semitic ways, who were present at the vicinity of a March for Life rally held in Washington DC, on the 18th of January 2019. There were involved in an incident that has become embroiled in controversy.
As per the August 2008, Southern Poverty Law Center publication,” Around the country, thousands of men and women have joined black supremacist groups on the extremist fringe of the Hebrew Israelite movement, a black nationalist theology that dates back to the 19th century. Its doctrine asserts that African Americans are God’s true chosen people because they, not the people known to the world today as Jews, are the real descendants of the Hebrews of the Bible. Although most Hebrew Israelites are neither explicitly racist nor anti-Semitic and…

After leading the Kansas City Chiefs 14-0 at halftime, the game turned into a nail biter that went into overtime before the Pats finally prevailed in overtime 37-31.
I swear I spent the entire second half doing this:
I’m just getting too old for this stuff!
Anyway, I know that most of the country except for New England was rooting for the Chiefs, but as I’m a die-hard Patriots fan I hope you’ll forgive me for celebrating.
Super Bowl LIII will have the Patriots facing off against the Los Angeles Rams on February 3rd—which just happens to be my birthday! I’m sure you can guess what I’ll be wishing for!
Last Saturday, UCLA’s Katelyn Ohashi competed in the Collegiate Challenge in Anaheim, CA. After completing a spectacular gymnastics floor performance the 21-year-old rightfully earned a perfect 10 and the video has gone viral. If you haven’t seen it, give yourself a treat and check it out.
I’d like to thank the author for providing an ebook in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis: When an extra ticket becomes available to attend the dress rehearsal of Braxton’s King Lear production, Kellan tags along with Nana D and her buddies, sisters-in-law Eustacia and Gwendolyn Paddington, to show support for the rest of the Paddington family. When one of them appears to have a heart attack in the middle of the second act, Nana D raises her suspicions and asks Kellan to investigate who killed her friend. Amidst family members suddenly in debt and a secret rendezvous between an unlikely pair, Kellan learns the Paddingtons may not be as clean-cut as everyone thinks. But did one of them commit murder for an inheritance?
Kellan’s back in his second adventure since returning home to Pennsylvania. With his personal life in upheaval and his new boss, Myriam, making life difficult, will he be able to find a killer, or will he get caught up in his own version of stage fright?
Oh my goodness! I said in my review of the first book in this series, Broken Heart Attack, that Jay hit it out of the park. Well Academic Curveball is even better! My one critique of the previous book was that I thought it slowed down a bit in the middle. Well, that certainly didn’t happen here. I started reading this after supper and finished it an hour and a half later. It’s fun, amusing, full of strong and quirky personalities, and the mystery is twisty and unpredictable and will keep you guessing. It’s amazing how much Jay packs into a cozy that’s under 300 pages.
Broken Heart Attack is the fourth book I’ve read by Jay and I’ve loved all of them. It’s not often you have the privilege of seeing someone start out at the beginning of their career and watch them develop into a superstar. Jay is a brilliant author, one of the best I’ve come across in my many years of reading and I just cannot recommend his books highly enough!
Yesterday was just one of those awful days when NOTHING seemed to go right. I know we all have them so I thought I’d dedicate this week’s Whimsical Wednesday post to this topic. One of my favorite children’s books is “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” Written in 1972 by Judith Viorst, and illustrated by Ray Cruz, it’s as timely now as it was back then.
And if Alexander doesn’t put a smile on your face, I hope Paul Simon’s 1986 hit, “You Can Call Me Al” will. If not, we could consider moving to Australia!
