State of the Union . . . according to the Pres. Trump

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tuesday, February 4, 2020, Two days after “Groundhog Day” and Semi-Super Bowl LIV –

After three minutes of the POTUS’ speech, we stopped counting after hearing five lies.

This Green Party member has heard too much. Thank God, the Speaker of the House is not standing and applauding. THREE CHEERS FOR HER FOR TEARING UP HIS SPEECH!!!

I wonder how long this boasting and unlawfulness and unethical behavior will continue. My wish was to have a new president by Saint Valentines’ Day. I am not just disappointed, but no longer proud of our group of 100 elected senators.

Most notably, my old colleagues from Indiana (Senators Todd Y. and Mike B.), Florida’s Senator Marco Rubio, Coloradoan Cory Gardner, and Alaskan Senator O’WhatsHerName are sure to be damned unless they repent and vote to remove this man who was not elected by popular vote of American citizens but by the outdated Electoral College.

Sunday’s Holy, Holy, Holy Edition . . . Pray for Impeachment Trial and DJT Removal Before Thanksgiving . . . May the US Be Well Again !!!

Week of November 10, 2019

This is the biggest week in Trump’s Impeachment Hearings and Trial. As he wanted, the proceedings will be on television. One “senior official” in the White House relates that the Oval Office expects higher TV ratings than all of the Apprentice shows.

With peace, like a river, attendeth my way;

. . . as I pour out my heart:

All is well, all is well with my soul.

The thought of Trump spending the holidays and the entire year of 2020 near his South Florida golf course and so-called site of a G7 or G8 Summit; this gives my mind peace.

Sometimes Thoughts and Prayers are Not Enough

Evangelical Issue

 

[Menlo Park Church, Northern California] – With the assistance of the ‘men of integrity’ of our Saturday Morning Men’s Bible Study Fellowship, we came up with some practical techniques to get latent Christians active and spread The Word. Many families have issues with relatives and close friends that do not regularly read, sing, or worship during these contemporary times.

Our Presidential corruption has been a catalyst for normalizing lying (violation of the 7th Commandment), failing to honor our earthly parents (sin of the 4th Commandment), swearing and cursing (contrary to the 2nd Commandment), or failing to follow any of the other seven Commandments.

It breaks the heart of a Christian when people they care about do not follow the teachings and customs of our Holy Church. Other than sending thoughts and prayers, the men in attendance at last weekend’s meeting offered some ideas of what has been successful for them.

Angels Visiting Abraham (Father of All Faiths)

 

 

 

Here are a few suggestions, which are NOT pushy or appear to be bullying:

 

  1. Wait for an ‘open door.’ Approach non-practicing people when it is a good time.

 

  1. Ask other Christians to help even though they offer up prayers in your absence.

 

  1. Take one from the book of Reverend Ron Richie. Be bold and ask strangers, “Do you know Jesus Christ?”

 

  1. Like Christ, speak in parables. Tell short stories that your audience can relate, which have a lesson to live by.

 

  1. Be ‘a light.’ Become an example of a great person that they might want to emulate. Demonstrate your outward journey of evangelism.

 

  1. Serve others in their time of need, particularly when the giver has nothing to gain.

 

  1. Utilize your own faith, talent, treasure, and time.

 

  1. Demonstrate true peace, joy, and the abundant life, grace, and mercy of God.

 

  1. Recruit others into a ministry serving the poor, homeless, hungry, jailed, atheists, seniors, children, (dis)abled, or other needy people.

Celebration of the Senses Day

 

rainbow waterfall

Forget about the Monday blahs, the 24th marks a day to take it all in. With all your senses, enjoy life. See, hear, feel, smell, and touch the wonders of our world, which we should be good stewards of.

·         See a rainbow, splendid architecture or artwork.

·         Hear a rolling stream, great music, or a waterfall.

·         Smell great cooking, flowers, or nature after a brief rainfall.

·         Feel the touch of a kind  human hand.

·         Taste spices, your favorite foods, or take in some aromatherapy.

·         Treat your proprioceptor (sensory receptor which receives stimuli from within the body, especially one that responds to position and movement) senses to the excitement of a rollercoaster and laughter.

Avoid noise, sharp objects, taking a nasty fall, terrified screaming (like that in the 1990’s movie “Arachnophobia”), visions of deceased beached grey whales (over 90 along the Pacific Coast this year), rotten eggs and other spoiled foods.

Happy Sustainable Gastronomy Day

The Dailey Sun~Chronicles – “No Rumors, No Fakes – Just the Facts, Jack!”

 

Volume VIII, Issue 42                                  6 – 18 – 2019                           ***** Edition

 

Sustainable Gastronomy

sust gasro

A commitment of gastronomy towards the principles of sustainability include:

  • poverty reduction;
  • efficient use of resources;
  • environmental protection and climate change; and
  • the protection of cultural values, heritage and diversity.

 

The United Nations has designated June 18th as Sustainable Gastronomy Day. International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity.

 

This is one of the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals that are call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote prosperity while protecting the planet.

root veggies

 

There are 17 goals (see: https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/).

 

They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

 

The Five Principles of Sustainable Food and Agriculture

FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) has developed a common vision and an integrated approach to sustainability across agriculture, forestry and fisheries. This unified perspective – valid across all agricultural sectors and taking into account social, economic and environmental considerations – ensures the effectiveness of action on the ground and is underpinned by knowledge based on the best available science, and adaptation at community and country levels to ensure local relevance and applicability.

A common vision for sustainable food and agriculture must equally address social, economic and environmental dimensions to ensure sustainability.

The principles that can collectively guide the process of transition to greater sustainability are:

  1. Improving efficiency in the use of resources is crucial to sustainable agriculture.
  2. Sustainability requires direct action to conserve, protect and enhance natural resources.
  3. Agriculture that fails to protect and improve rural livelihoods and social well-being is unsustainable.
  4. Enhanced resilience of people, communities and ecosystems is key to sustainable agriculture.
  5. Sustainable food and agriculture may require responsible and effective governance mechanisms.

 

“Sustainable Gastronomy Day” emphasizes the need to focus the world’s attention on the role that sustainable gastronomy can play. It also reaffirms that all cultures and civilizations are contributors and crucial enablers of sustainable development.

The UN General Assembly adopted on 21 December 2016 its resolution A/RES/71/246 and designated 18 June as an international observance, Sustainable Gastronomy Day.

The decision acknowledges gastronomy as a cultural expression related to the natural and cultural diversity of the world.

Sustainable gastronomy can play a role due to its interlinkages with the three dimensions of sustainable development, in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by promoting:

  • agricultural development;
  • food security;
  • nutrition;
  • sustainable food production; and
  • conservation of biodiversity.

 

Origin Labelling of Food

Food products linked to their place of origin are economically and socially beneficial to rural areas and promote sustainable development, boasting an annual trade value of over $50 billion worldwide. Such products have specific characteristics, qualities or reputations stemming from their geographical origin.

The study Strengthening sustainable food systems through geographical indications by the FAO and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) analyses the economic impact of Geographical Indication registration in nine case studies:

  • Coffee (Colombia)
  • Darjeeling tea (India)
  • Futog cabbage (Serbia)
  • Kona coffee (United States)
  • Manchego cheese (Spain)
  • Penja pepper (Cameroon)
  • Taliouine saffron (Morocco)
  • Tête de Moine cheese (Switzerland)
  • Vale dos Vinhedos wine (Brazil)

The registration of products linked to their place of origin has implications running far deeper than economic gains alone. Local producers and processors at the center of the registration process help make food systems more inclusive and more efficient. Together, producers develop the product specifications, and promote and protect the origin label. The creation of such labels also stimulates public-private sector dialogue as public authorities are often closely associated with the registration and certification process.
