Updates and Thoughts For The Start of Month Five 2017.
North Korea now is warning China to back off. China is posturing and uses the North Korea dilemma to leverage trade and tariffs with the United States. With that said, China has the world’s largest military, estimated at 2.3 million. China borders North Korea so maybe we will all live long enough to see China turn North Korea into Southeast China?
Word has it that more than one worldwide sports agency is already preparing offers to sign Serena’s baby to a contract.
I received feedback regarding last week’s comments about parents and their children using their tablets and phones at restaurants. Some feedback was positive so I will also add that the same holds true for parents who let their children leave the table to ‘play’ and run around the restaurant as if they were in a playground. And again, you know exactly what I am referring to…..absolutely unacceptable.
Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue last week regarding his newborn son was an unreal watch. Heartfelt and touching to say the least.
Racism unfortunately affects us all and with social media is well- publicized when it happens at worldwide sporting events. Now we get more of it last week at Boston’s Fenway Park with a few fans yelling racial slurs at a Baltimore Orioles’ outfielder. Sick racial behavior should be dealt with by prohibiting those spectators from attending any future games…..forever. Time to send a message of no tolerance.
I mentioned ‘cord-cutters’ many blogs ago. Last week, Dish reported a loss of 143,000 subscribers during the 1st quarter of 2017…..compared to a decline of 23,000 in Q1 of 2016. Cord-cutting, who would have thought?
A duty to Queen and Country: Prince Philip, the 95-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II, will step back from his royal duties. Yes, he is 95 and now has decided to dial it back a bit. We know who the sheriff is in that palace.
Adios and have a Funday Sunday!!
