Let’s Make This Happen!

Georgia Senate runoff candidates Raphael Warnock (D) vs. Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) and Sen. David Perdue (R) vs. Jon Ossoff (D). (Thank you Bloomberg News and Washington Post for this copy).

“The state of play on the two Georgia runoffs that will decide which party controls the U.S. Senate is: It’s close.

Both sides know that whoever wins will have done so because they motivated more of their voters to turn out. Georgia may have just voted for a Democrat for president for the first time in decades, but Republicans running for Senate got more votes than the Democrats. (Let’s turn this around).”

I love the way some folks think Giuliani was an actor in “Borat.” We got to see the real him. Trump picks Giuliani to keep him in the White House. I wouldn’t let him water my plants.

You Can Learn A Lot From A Mouse

See TV personality Steve Greenberg and Editorial Consultant Lois Whitman-Hess of zoom podcast, “Lying on the Beach,” interview David Chesky, an American pianist, composer, producer , arranger, and co-founder of the independent, audiophile label Chesky Records. He is also co-founder and CEO of HDtracks, an online music store that sells high-resolution digital music.

David Chesky has won Independent Music Awards and received Grammy Award nominations. He has written jazz tunes, orchestral and chamber music, opera, ballet, and a rap symphony.

We are talking to David today because he composed an opera for children that teaches about the absurdity of war and acceptance of cultural diversity while exposing them to classical music. It’s called “The Mice War.” David also turned the opera into an animated movie and a soon to be produced children’s book.


“The Mice War” is about industrious Blue Mice that live in the North and the passive Red Mice that live on an Island way in the south.

The Blue Mice need to make more money so they decide they need to have a war.


The reason for the war?


The Blue Mice eat blue cheese and the Red Mice eat yellow cheese.

What would happen if the Red Mice came and made the Blue Mice eat yellow Cheese?


Let’s find out.


Welcome David.

The Skinny On Skin

Many of us are experiencing skin ailments during Covid-19 that have nothing to do with the virus. Yet, they are very disturbing. Dr. Steve Mandy, an internationally known dermatologist, says that many skin irritations come from stress and/or staying at home. You can hear more about his recommendations in the video below. I also included a Web MD picture essay on skin conditions. Bottom line, it’s safe to see a skin doctor during the pandemic. Don’t let skin conditions get worse during these crazy times. Take care of them early on.

AN EMAIL FROM MY FRIEND DOUG GARR JUST AS ETA ARRIVES

I hope you and Eliot have flotation gear. I know, not funny. You’re on a high floor. Please stay safe in the storm season.


Someone — a woman — posted on FB a meme wondering what 45 was doing right now. There were hundreds of comments, snide and funny, but mine I think summed up what a lot of people were thinking:


“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
