I unfriended and blocked another person on Facebook today. I don’t like to do it, but there comes a time when I have to say, “enough!”
The Covid-19 conspiracy theories are nuts. People are ignoring the evidence of hudnreds of scientists and instead are accepting the words of one person on video – one person with an axe to grind – one person with no credentials.
I am so done with that.
That doesn’t mean I buy into everything I hear from politicians and the media. I have a healthy dose of skepticism. I examine what I read and hear. For instance, the film Planet of the Humans. I am all for what Michael Moore said today – that he wants to wake people up, shake people up and do essentially, what Greta Thunberg did – figuratively whack people upside the head and make them see what dire straits this planet is in.
But where Greta used facts and evidence, Jeff Gibbs used out of date information from less than credible sources. Telling the truth matters. Lies are also told by omission.
So there you have it – some thoughts of the day. Other and happier thoughts: the garden: transplanting, weeding, watering, watching it thrive and helping it grow.
Also – a nice walk with Abby and Alisa today on the Awesome Trail.
Sun and warmth and love. And maybe, later today a glass of wine – while cooking and baking and being a “settler woman.” Gad! What has become of me? Please call an intervention if you see me in a muslin gown with a bonnet on my head.
