A Few of My Favorite Things

A fun post this morning folks! 

I haven't done one of these "lists" posts for a while. This is my own list.  

I've had this blog since 2005.  Where does the time go?  I've covered a lot of subjects. I try to keep things positive on this blog. But I have to admit that negative impulses keep creeping in my head demanding to be posted.  Especially now when the very fundamentals of our democracy are being threatened by the Orange Menace in the White House. But I'm not going to go THERE in this post.  Instead I'm going to post about some of my favorite things.  Yes, just like the "Sound of Music" song says.  

Here is my list in no particular order:

  1. Reading a good book
  2. Early morning walk through my development
  3. Blogging
  4. Taking videos and photos and organizing them
  5. Creating movies from my photos and videos
  6. Gardening, landscaping, flower and herb plantings
  7. Hummus
  8. Judge Judy
  9. Quarterly trips with Pat, my Canadian Travel Buddy
  10. MSNBC
  11. Afternoon naps
  12. Key lime pie
  13. Apple computer products
  14. Schadenfreude (waiting for Trump to be frog marched out of the White House in handcuffs)
  15. Cats
  16. Pomeranian dogs
  17. Family genealogy 
  18. Philadelphia
  19. Canada
  20. West Hollywood California
  21. Palm Springs California
  22. Corn chips, jalapeno and lime flavored
  23. Pico de gallo
  24. Restaurant dining with good friends and without whiny kids
  25. Class reunions
  26. Watching Netflix DVD movies in my bedroom
  27. Bill Kelly
  28. Pension payments
  29. Good and respectful customer service
  30. Seeing corrupt politicians jailed
  31. Rainy days
  32. Sunny days
  33. Cloudy days
  34. Part-time hotel front-desk job
  35. Longtime blogger friends
  36. "Morning Joe"
  37. Rachel Maddow
  38. "Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell"
  39. Chris Hayes
  40. Chris Matthews
  41. Nicolle Wallace
  42. Chuck Todd
  43. Lemon sponge pie
  44. Twice backed stuffed potatoes
  45. Almond milk
  46. Daily journal entries
  47. Money in the bank for emergencies
  48. Good health
  49. Comfortable and mortgage free home
  50. Music 

Just a partial list folks. I have many favorite things. I have a list of things I don't like too. I'm debating whether or not to post that list. I try to keep my blog positive but sometimes I give in to that devil on the left side of my shoulder.
