A weird day away!

Yesterday I didn’t listen to the radio, or watch the television news.There was a tragedy where two brothers from a nearby town were killed an experimental plane.

Apparently, the plane had fuel and people too heavy for it to bear. When the plane went down an eyewitness  called nine-one-one. But it was too late. The 2 men, brothers, in their early to mid- fifties were killed in the plane crash. The coroner’s office detected marijuana in the body of the pilot.

I only found out about it today, and my boss chided me by saying we reported on it on the radio yesterday!

Nevertheless, that did not lessen the shock to me because weirdly, I had been thinking about one of the gentlemen, just a few days ago.

It was actually 15 years earlier I met him once and he told me he worked for a company called Medtronic. I’d been thinking about that company because it dealt in research and products that interested me . It shocked me when  I recognized his name in the paper.

To think of someone 15 years later and then to read their name in the newspaper a couple days later is weird I think.

But isn’t it true, sometimes we think of someone we know or like, or worse someone we don’t like, or we even say their name, and the next thing you know we see them.

Creepy isn’t it? It’s important to keep a positive attitude. Sunshine and flowers! Laughter and positive thoughts! Please!

Stay happy and be good

First of all, let me write I have been pretty amazed at the news stories I’ve read tonight.
The resolution of a smartphone or an HDTV can send you photos, videos, and stories that are all too real, and too close for comfort.

The world is a crazy quilt. There is good and there is bad. Yesterday the news was rotten. However today, the news is so bad that it makes you want to hang your head and cry.

Child rape at a daycare in Ohio, bombings in Baghdad, those are just a couple of stories to grab the headlines.

Wickedness, and evil do not sleep. And the news services?  They don’t sleep either. They keep churning out pictures and words, sharing the world’s sorrows to keep you informed.

I suppose we need to know the truth of what is going on, but one has to be aware of the consequences of knowing. It can be heart-wrenching to know the news.

Tomorrow I’m taking a news detox! 

The news won’t make me crazy! 

I won’t allow it! 

No being a News Junkie tomorrow! 

I go back to work Wednesday, there part of my job as a radio broadcaster involves reading and hearing the news. So it’s back to the world of news on Wednesday.

People are frightened about different things. I think they’re smart to be frightened, but they also should practice being good. Don’t let the news hustlers get you down, and don’t be trapped by evil and wickedness. 

Stay happy and be good!

Haywire weekend


How come my heart rate is up today?
It’s because it’s been a very violent weekend in America.
As a radio broadcaster, and weekend newscaster, I have had to read and hear about the most heinous crimes against fellow humans hour after hour.
So much human life lost to criminally insane people.
Senseless killing.
It hurts to work in bringing news to the world when my fellow humankind are working against peace and love.
I hope someday there will be a way to find harmony among all nationalities.
This foolishness has to stop!
