Shootings in Connecticut

Just recently I have heard about the shootings in Connecticut. We feel a sense of mourning, enormous loss, for the good people who are in anguish over this tragedy at the school.

Micheal Moore said on the news that there have been 31 shootings since Columbine. What is going on, and why has this statistic increased over time?  I sincerely do not recall this amount of shootings in the 70s, or 80s.

In the United States you have the 2nd Amendment, the right to bear arms. While personally, I was always in favor of this Amendment to bear single shot hunting rifles. I am not in agreement where automatic weapons, handguns, should be protected under this Amendment. But, it is something for the US Congress and its government to decide.

Apart from that, schools need a security system in place. Do they need metal detectors? Do they need an armed, security guard? They need a security plan of action, an alarm system in each room, and practices on how to deal with such an event.

I think it could be also, a change of spirituality over that span of 30 or so years, that has brought more of these tragedies about. We need to focus on helping those people that are alone, be inclusive, so no one will try a crime like this again. We can only minimize these things, as the world is not perfect... We do hope someday it will never happen again!

Till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
