(Lady Bird was around for the first Earth Day, back in 1970!  I remember she was very fond of flowers, especially wild flowers.  Earth Day is tomorrow, but I’d like to think that most of us have come to consider every day Earth Day.  Our resources and our atmosphere, and everything are finite and precious.  We all need to be better stewards of this big blue marble we live on.  Our grandchildren are depending on us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(It’s the latest, it’s the greatest, it’s the li-brar-eee!    They have REAL – hard copy – books there, friends.  They are the REAL records of the world.  All the e-books, and everything you see online, are soft copy.  They can be revised and manipulated, at will, for whatever reason suits the entities that control them.  I can edit this post, and any of the posts I’ve ever put up, at a moments notice, and you’d be none the wiser.  This is one of the biggest dangers of the internet, folks.  It is super fast and super convenient, but there is so much misinformation, disinformation and controlled information, that you are wise to not take too many things you read as “gospel”.  Frequent your public libraries, and don’t be afraid to read/own real books.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The First Lady is, and always has been, an unpaid public servant elected by one person, her husband.”   —   Claudia Lady Bird Johnson

(A very accomplished and capable First Lady.  If nothing else, she will always be remembered for the Highway Beautification Act.  I’m a sucker for flowers, and I always think of her surrounded by wild flowers.  She made it to the ripe old age of 94, just like my Gramma!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(AKA:  Claudia Alta Taylor Johnson.  A fine First Lady and a true Southern Belle.  She embodied the phrase:  Behind every great man there’s a great woman.  Without her Lyndon woulda been just another good ol’ boy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
