Dreams do not come true just because you dream them.  It’s hard work that makes things happen.”   —   Shonda Rimes (Sic)

(As a lazy ass dreamer, I cannot disagree!  It’s not that I haven’t worked hard in my life . . . because I have.  It’s just that I never worked hard towards achieving a dream.  I’m a settler, I guess.

If your newspaper is like mine, they left the H out of Shonda Rhimes last name.  Kind of strange, as well known as she is.  She seems to rule ABC.  Remarkably – maybe – I’m not a fan.  I haven’t seen all of her shows, but the ones I have watched always seem to lean to the tawdry side of things.  God knows I’m no prude.  Far from it.  I like a little raunch as much as the next guy.  Maybe even more so.  But, I like it in its place.  I remember when “Grey’s Anatomy” first came on, I was all excited.  I had kind of been jonesing for a good medical drama ever since “ER” went off the air.  I like hospital shows with a little soap opera thrown in, but “Grey’s Anatomy” is just a soap opera . . . with a little hospital thrown in.  “Private Practice” was just a spin-off, so I couldn’t be bothered with it.  That actress never did anything for me too.  But, I was also excited about “How to Get Away with Murder”, because I like legal dramas . . . and Viola Davis.  But, in the very first episode they showed this gay love scene, that I thought was completely superfluous.  And, I’m someone who has always been a proponent of Gay rights!  “Scandal” never appealed to me.  Hey, the name says it all!  I watched the first episode of “For The People”, but it came off as kind of light weight.  Just a lot of extremely young, and pretty lawyers, mostly sleeping with each other.  I haven’t given “Station 19” a shot yet.  Maybe, I will.  But, I’m not going to get my hopes up.  I completely understand that there is an audience – Gen Xers, I suppose – for her kind of shows, but so far they have not been for me.  Maybe, I’m just getting old.  If so, so be it.  The networks never really cared for my – current – demographic in the first place.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I celebrate you as you remember the power of grace and pride, and I challenge you to choose freedom over fear.”   —   Janelle Monae

(I think this girl has it all!  She’s beautiful, intelligent, and very talented.  She’s fierce!  And, she’s so friggin’ cute and petite!  And, I actually knew of her before my daughter did!  Just like I did with Mayer Hawthorne, although she tries to fight me on this.  Our government, and the corporate media, love to play up the illusion of “security”.  There really is no such thing, folks.  Especially as an absolute.  They play the fear card constantly, and try to convince us that we have to be willing to surrender our privacy, and freedom, in order to be “safe” and “secure”.  It is B.S., friends!  So, take Janelle’s advice, and choose freedom over fear.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Trust your gut, keep throwing darts at the dartboard.  Don’t listen to the critics and you will figure it out.”   —   Will Ferrell

(Our first quote from Will Ferrell!  And, it’s great advice.  I wish I had heard advice like this when I was young.  I just saw Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon do an HBO spoof of TV coverage of Saturday’s Royal wedding, between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.  Of course it was over the top, but it was also too true to life.  I’m not sure which coverage turned me off first, the “real”, or the spoof.  Anyway, I’m glad the wedding is now history.  I’m more than done with fascinators for a while!  Although, I hear some of them can pick up DirecTV!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Beverly Hills is very exclusive.  For instance, their fire department won’t make house calls.”   —   Mort Sahl

(As a kid, Mort Sahl was one of my favorite comedians!  I haven’t seen him in a while, but he is still kicking at 91 years.  Very funny guy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

In biblical times, a man could have as many wives as he could afford.  Just like today.”   —   Abigail Van Buren

(I can’t afford the one I have now!  And/or, she can barely afford me.  But, somehow, we make it work.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is no eel so small but it hopes to become a whale.”   —   German Proverb

(My people!  Well, at least half.  I’m English and Dutch on my Mom’s side.  Even so . . . I don’t get it.  With the negative and the “but”.  Are they saying an eel longs to be a whale, meaning bigger, badder, and – supposedly – better?  Top of the food chain kinda thing?  Most people want to be richer and more respected, I guess, but not all.  “Be just what you is, not what you is not. Folks what do this has the happiest lot.”   Can anyone dig back for that one?  It’s from my childhood, the early ’60s!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, you ought to set up a life you don’t need to escape from.”   —   Seth Godin

(It’s all so easy . . . after your first few million $$!  LOL!  Clearly, the guy is doing something right.  Oh, well.  At least I still have my hair!  Welcome to the Cryptoquote Club, Seth!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
