About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Why Solitaire Should be Required in All Public Schools.....K through 12 in the U.S.A.

This type of ..."Solitaire" Has 4 Rows at the Top of the Game For the Aces..(see right below)

The across the top room for 4 Aces. As Aces come up, they are placed in one of 4 Rows..

..........row 1 ............. .......row 2 . .............row 3 . ........row 4
_____________ _______________. . ______________ . ______________

And then,...7 More Rows are below for all cards..........Below is an example:


_______ _______ ________ _______ _______ _______ ___________

cards ..... ..cards ..... cards ....cards .......cards ....cards ...cards


The game goes on until the player WINS........OR ........LOSES......Then the player plays it
again and again and again..........................................

A Good Grammar School Teacher could teach this game in a few days...AND...after a few days
everyone learns to play this game..If you play the game once, and get the hang of it, you will
play it again, and again, and again, and again..............Once learned, the game is easy to play,
and the computer shuffles the cards and sets up the game............................

...........................And the game is often played again and again and again...............................

NOW..................WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LEARNING THIS GAME.???????????????

.....................THE PURPOSE IS TO TEACH AND IMPORTANT LIFE ABILITY.......................
.....................IN ORDER TO LIVE A HEALTHY & PRODUCTIVE LIFE.................................

.......... ............ WE ALL..........NEED ..........PATIENCE!.............................

......................THAT IS THE ABILITY TO LIVE WITH A PROBLEM AND NOT SOLVE IT IMMEDIATELY!!!!

....................... LEARNING HOW TO PLAY THIS KIND OF SOLITAIRE............................

......................................... TEACHES........PATIENCE !!!!!......

__________________________________________________________________________________
. Once a person learns this game, most of us do not forget it......
...................And, you can play on the computer, or play with real cards. It doesn't matter..
..................Here is the most important point about playing this game:.......
A player only wins about 1 in 7 of all games...If you play this form of solitaire...you learn to
be patient with yourself, and, THEN YOU ALSO LEARN TO BE PATIENT WITH OTHERS..

______________________________________________________________________________
.PEOPLE THESE DAYS ARE ALWAYS RUSHING TO EVERYWHERE...HERE AND THERE...
OFTEN TAKING SOME TIME, BRINGS MUCH BETTER RESULTS.....DRIVING A CAR
WAY OVER THE SPEED LIMIT IS AN EXAMPLE...AND RUSHING THROUGH THE STORE
IN A HURRY IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE.......IN BOTH CASES MISTAKES MIGHT BE
MADE THAT COULD EASILY BE AVOIDED IF WE SLOWED DOWN AND TOOK
TIME TO ACCOMPLISH A TASK.


IF, this is not clear, (and perhaps this is not explained clearly) other lessons be found on the internet, or you could learn this game
from a friend who knows how to play
..Yes, I believe this is worth learning....

Yes, "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly......and of course, The VERY VERY, UGLY

One simple fact about Joe Biden...He is someone we can all be proud of..

...Joe has had lots of experience in government and life. All kinds of experiences, some very good and some very bad. Joe is very kind, very intelligent, articulate, not overbearing, not new, works well with others, and knows what to do where & when. To have Joe Biden represent the United States of America as our leader makes us proud to be part of this country. This is the exact opposite that the last leader did for our country. He embarrassed us.

..To see Joe represent all of us, makes me feel proud and happy..We now have a leader who is respected by the entire world. We don't have to explain his background, how he got elected, where he comes from and this and that. He is recognized all over the world as an outstanding leader. (that is before he became President of the U.S.A.)

...We have had this before about 68 years ago in 1952. An American leader named Dwight David Eisenhower was already recognized when he became President of the U.S.A. as a great leader, and we were all proud of him and his previous history when he became President. While Joe's history is totally different, he is already recognized as an outstanding leader of the U.S.A., and I am very proud that he is our President today.

Why do many people assume that we all know internet abbriviations?

NO, We DONT KNOW THEM ALL!!! Some people here know them all, and some know none of them..

Assume nothing about abbreviations. We have been through this one before, and many times before. Please assume
nothing about abbreviations. ,,,Thank You....not "TY"....Stuart G

The name "Trump" will be lost in the ..."U.S. Sea of Evil"...like "Nixon".

...Trump will be one of the biggest fish...as big as Nixon..The sea is total poison.. This is an American sea of evil...There are other seas in Europe and Asia..The American sea is full of evil..Custer and those
soldiers that killed innocent Native Americans and their children. Slave owners and other killers : John Wayne Gacy, Dylann Roof, Charles Whitman
..... Not many U.S. Presidents, but Trump is joining the club..in ways worse than Nixon, although that is not important, and depends on the person thinking about the "American Sea of Evil"......

This sea is totally, poison, and totally evil..............but it exists and has a new member: "Donald Trump". (as part of the sea, no buildings are named "Nixon" and no joy or respect in hearing Nixon's name...same for Trump)

Joe Biden is doing what is best for the U.S.A. Think About This: Joe Biden Is One Of Us.

...Joe's total history is being one of us. Joe has been through some horrible experiences and survived and he is
still a caring person. Joe is one of us. And this is not new. Joe takes the train, he cares about kids and
has great experience, knows what to do, and he is one of us. Joe has been around a long time, worked with all kinds
of people, has been there and done that.
... Joe Biden has some of the best human qualities that anyone could imagine. If Joe needs help, he will get help
from some of the best people in this entire world. Joe cares deeply about the U.S.A. and Joe is one of us.

I promised Brando I would not touch his Oscar': the secret life of Sacheen Littlefeather, Guardian:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jun/03/i-promised-brando-i-would-not-touch-his-oscar-secret-life-sacheen-littlefeather#Echobo

In 1973, she made history at the Academy Awards, appearing in place of Marlon Brando, declining his statuette and making a speech about Native American rights. She has been speaking out ever since....

Sacheen Littlefeather begins by announcing that this will be one of her last interviews: “I’m very, very ill. I have metastasised breast cancer – terminal – to my right lung. And I’ve been on chemotherapy for quite some time, and daily antibiotics. As a result, my memory is not as good as it used to be … I’m very tired all the time because cancer is a full-time job: the CT scans, MRIs, laboratory blood work, medical visits, chemotherapy, infectious disease control doctors, etc, etc. If you’re lazy, you need not apply for cancer.”

For the next couple of hours, speaking over Zoom from her home in northern California, as she trips down memory lane her solemn demeanour gives way to chattiness and laughter. At 74, she has lived a full, eventful life, though she will be for ever remembered for an event that took up little more than one minute of it, on the night of 27 March 1973. This was when she took the stage at the 45th Academy Awards to speak on behalf of Marlon Brando, who had been awarded best actor for his performance in The Godfather. It is still a striking scene to watch. Amid the gaudy 70s evening wear, 26-year-old Littlefeather’s tasselled buckskin dress, moccasins, long, straight black hair and handsome face set in an expression of almost sorrowful composure, make a jarring contrast.

When the presenter, Roger Moore, attempts to hand Littlefeather Brando’s Oscar she holds out her hand as if to push it away. She explains that Brando cannot accept the award because of “the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry”. The crowd interrupts her, half-applauding, half-booing. “Excuse me,” she says calmly, then continues: “And on television and movie reruns, and also with recent happenings at Wounded Knee.” At the time, Wounded Knee, in South Dakota, was the site of a month-long standoff between Native American activists and US authorities, sparked by the murder of a Lakota man. Littlefeather ends her speech begging that “in the future, our hearts and our understandings will meet with love and generosity”.

Why do we continuously get......."SCAM CALLS" trying to sell us this, or that, or something else?

Over and over again I get them....one variation or another...........................................................
............................Here is the total answer as to why we get them?...................................

_________________________________________________________________________________

These phone calls seem so stupid..Why do we keep getting them. They are always trying to sell us
something...anything..."A Vacation" .."Extended Warranty", "Home Improvements" .."Membership
to Something"..."Please Give a Donation" ...."You Will Be Rewarded if You Buy this" ETC, ETC, ETC,

...................Scam Calls Work on Some People..That is Why................................

If they didn't work, we wouldn't get these calls, like a very bad TV commercial that doesn't sell anything.
If it doesn't work, the company will not go to the trouble to make another and another...So we all
think these calls are so stupid and awful...Why do we keep getting them???

..."Because they work on some people"..........you don't think so?...Well the scammers
who make these calls know from experience that they work on..."some people"......................... so they go to the trouble to make more, and more, and more of them..&..."MORE OF THEM"
________________________________________________________________________________
You still don't think so?....Do some research on this topic...scam calls....and you will find that
these calls have been going on for a very long time....(maybe decades)...If they didn't work they
wouldn't try to sell us...Ok one more bit of proof....Can you buy or have you heard of.....
