Yesterday was a sea day which I needed badly to recover from a lot of hectic activities and way over eating and drinking. We are in port tomorrow but I may just stay on the ship as I need to get my body back in shape partially due to the fact that I could not take all my medications and still travel in a group.


Barbara was raised mostly in Davenport, Iowa——actually a suburb of Davenport called Bettendorf. Davenport is not underwater and it looks like things will get worse before the get better.


I saw a poll that only 35% of Americans approve of how Biden is handling the economy. That really pisses me off for several reasons.

First, I think he has done a phenomenal job. Could he have done better? Yes, if the entire government worked on a bi-partisan basis to make thing even better. However that is not the case. The Republicans are not interested in making things better. They are interested in making Biden look bad and making political hay of the problems.

Second these polls are stupid. No one ask what voters think the solutions should be.

If the economy is not doing as well as it should, the American public should blame itself for voting into office incompetents like Mc Carthage, Jordan and Greene. Does the public really think one person can do it all? Every possible roadblock has been thrown at the Biden Administration, but they still accomplished a lot.

Just think how much better we could do if everyone worked together. These polls are totally unfair.


Let’s be honest folks. Nicki Haley is saying Biden is too old and will never complete a second term. She is not really talking about Biden. Her veiled message, is better watch out or you will end up with a Black woman President. She cannot say that directly, but read between the lines.

And, remember, Trump is only about four years younger and does not have even a small fraction of the knowledge necessary to be President. I am not happy about it but I can accept certain flaws in Trump for the same reason that when I get on a plane, I do not care if the pilots are faithful spouses. I care whether they can fly the damn plane. Still, Trump is so flawed that he is an embarrassment.


Strict abortion bans failed in Nebraska and South Carolina. Surprised about South Carolina but three Republican women legislators grew balls. Sometimes miracle do happen.


Happy Anniversary to our daughter Beth and Walter.


Had dinner cabin last night. It was perfectly fine.


The more I think about it, the more I think Donald Trump is certifiably insane.


Spoke at length last night with Grandson Jaden who is finishing his second year at Vassar. He is a super young man and smart as a whip.


See you tomorrow. At least that is my plan.


Go Ukraine
