Red Nose Day is put on by Comic Relief, although I am not feeling very funny at this very moment. I am watching the Red Nose Day program, and am sad and angry seeing children in the United States going to bed hungry. Children in the United States should not have to "push" in their stomachs because they are hungry. I am seeing children here in the United States going to bed on the weekends with no food..........this is unacceptable.
Through the Red Nose Day program children are receiving food at school to take home in back packs for the weekend.......thank you Red Nose Day.
If the cast of 17 characters in the Republican party who ran for the presidency, and who had no chance of receiving the nomination had donated the millions of dollars that they raised, children would not be going to bed hungry.
Jeb Bush, alone raised and wasted $150,000,000. Chris Christy, Rand Paul, Ben Carson, John Kasich, and the list goes on..........shame on you. Talk about fiscal responsibility....I am thinking perhaps over a half a billion dollars was wasted Shouldn't this be the conversation the candidates are having. Are Hillary's emails really an issue? Let's try to keep our eyes on the ball, let's take care of the children, let's take care of the people.

Well, here I am March 26, 2016, and I see that I haven't written since February, 2015. It seems like only yesterday that I was here, but obviously not.
So much has happened in the last year, but where to begin.
The Primary season has enough information to fill several posts,  many with enormous amounts of humor. However, I think I will save Mr. Trump and the other Republicans for another day.
There have been wonderful moments in the last year, and there have been tragic and unfortunate moments as well. A blog is supposed to be current, consequently I will not rehash the past year at this moment.
I was speaking with my dear friend, Denise, recently, and have decided that I am going to be the voice of opinion. I am going to share my opinions with all who will listen, and with many who don't really care.  As my husband said last night, I acknowledge others have opinions, but I don't really want those opinions voiced in my presence. Ok, so maybe there is some truth there.
This blog however is mine, and my opinions. The inspiration for my new direction is a result of my observation of posts on Instagram. I have also observed people on television giving opinions, or should I say handing out information. Is most information opinions? I think this is often times true.
Yes, of course, there is information that is fact and only fact, such as 2 times 2 equals 4, and George Washington was the first president of the United States, but so much information is the opinion of the person giving it out.
I work at Macy's in the Home department, and give information to customers all day. I always tell bridal couples who are registering that if you ask 3 different sales associates for information on cookware you will get 3 different opinions. Dragnet's top cop, Jack Webb, would say give me the facts, just the facts, but seldom do we give just the facts. In my world I give opinions, not necessarily advice. And yes, my husband is correct I rarely want the opinions of others. I have lived a full life with many interesting experiences which give a sound base for my opinions.
I don't give opinions unless I am confident and sure my opinions are the best, in my opinion. I am not adverse to changing my opinions if I learn that I am incorrect.
Now that I have clearly stated the facts, and only the facts regarding my opinions, let the posts begin.

Friday night I attended a wonderful opening at Art Access. Audrey Hackman's work is worth making a stop at the gallery.
After the opening we had dinner at the Nazareth

Restaurant on Hamilton Rd. which was a victim of terrorism in February. It is necessary to support our neighbors when tragedy has occurred. We cannot allow evil to take away our freedom.
The food at the Nazareth Restaurant & Deli is delicious and the service was very nice.
