The night was cool, crisp and dry, with no wind, a perfect night.  And there to the Southwest was our moon. What a beautiful sight.

    World is in Transition 2021-2022 Could Be "Recovery" Years for Business

    The American dollar and our economy attracts attention all over the world. Rich and Poor. For example, an elderly lady followed me in the grocery store, all "masked up", but a little closer than 6 feet behind and said: "Someone is going to steal that $1000 bill from your hip pocket!" I had forgotten stuffing it in, half of it was exposed...

    We know that China always is a threat to any nation that borders it....they have tended to take over places next to them. Reminds me of the farmer in west Texas, he had 24 sections (square miles) of farms, and it was said: "He doesn't want all the land, just the land that is next to him!" That sounds like China...
