Was It Providential That President Joe Biden, A Devout Catholic, Will Have A Black Cardinal In D.C.

There are plenty more.


Cardinal Wilton Gregory is going to be a very busy prelate. Very Catholic Joe Biden will ‘lean’ on him heavily & he will become part of his ‘cabinet’. All good. Nothing bad. I do NOT know Wilton Gregory. But, I will find out. He seems OK. Did a nice job today.

I went & checked exactly as to when he was named as a cardinal. It was BEFORE the November 3, 2020 election. SMILE. But, NOT by much. Just a week. So, unless the pope had a message from his Boss this was coincidental — but providential.

I Admire & Like Men Who Can Cry In Public — Especially U.S. Presidents (Like Joe Biden).

To I, it is definitely NOT a sign of weakness. It is a good, positive sign of: strength, self-confidence, empathy with others & healthy emotions.

I cry. I cry openly. I cry watching movies. I cry every time I see Obama being elected. I cried when Joe got his ‘Medal of Freedom‘ from Obama.

Have you ever seen bloody Trump cry? QED! Proves my point.

I have a feeling that I will be crying a LOT tomorrow — ALL tears of joy & relief.

This is so good. So good. So healthy. So refreshing.

ENJOY.

Biden Inauguration ‘Field Of Flags’ Illumination — Video.

by Anura Guruge


YouTube Videos.
Click to watch.

Some, alas & inexplicably, have NO SOUND. So, don’t panic.


Impressive. Cute. Touching.

The illumination, with 46 pillars of light to denote that Joe Biden will be the 46th President is symbolic & a nice touch.

You should definitely watch at least one of the videos.

Pity that two of the videos (the first two) do not have sound.

Amazon Is Now Trying NO-Packaging Shipping — One Extreme To Another.

A ‘Roku Ultra‘ I received yesterday. Yes, it was Sunday & you can see that the Amazon label, at the Top Right, says ‘Sunday Delivery’.

But, the most striking thing is that it came WITHOUT ANY PACKAGING. Not even in a padded envelope or plastic wrap.

Just the Roku box with the Amazon label stuck on it.

I think this is NOT acceptable. Amazon has gone from OVER PACKAGING to the other extreme.

I have some objections. Sometimes I want to see the BOX, e.g., say a LEGO set. I also would like SOME protection & privacy.

BUT, a good start. I know that Amazon will sort it out in a few months. They always do.
