Nothing fancy, just a quick acknowledgement of a gift, gesture or service I had received.

As technology advances I now include email or text options to say thank you. I sent a thank you to a young man that maintains a website I use frequently and he told me he was pleasantly surprised and that I made his
  3. Interesting article. One of the complaints listed from the 70's attempt was: "Many parents and teachers oppose the idea of darker winter mornings, which could put children’s safety at risk.

  6. One size never fits all and all things in moderation; nothing can be solved in 280 characters. I recently read the book/listened to the audio version False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet, July 14, 2020 by Bjorn Lomborg. There are lots of ideas out their to protect our environment with a combination of power sources, not just one, without eliminating jobs and still living comfortably and successfully. This book shares several examples of good intentions in the realm of green energy going asunder when special interests ver

  14. In times of "Crisis" those in government have a tendency toward over zealousness to "protect" the citizens. Politicians are schooled in the art of reelection to "never let a crisis go to waste".
