I was hoping I could publish at least 3 posts in September, but I just didn’t have the time. All my blogging time was spent reading a backlog of unread subscriptions. At this moment , I’m scared to check out my email folder. “ So, why are you scared, Ren? It doesn’t make sense. Just delete.” Problem is, I don’t delete unread subscriptions. I read all of them, every single word. Heck, I even click the links if they say click HERE, and watch all the videos. This time , I think I will. I can actually delete everything in one click, but then, I get to delete even the ones I want to preserve for eternity. Maybe I can keep them somewhere, I know there’s a place for them . As of 2 days ago, my unread emails number is …. 0_0″…….. 25,000. Have mercy.
And by the way, these humungous emails make my reading soooooooooo slow. It takes about a minute to get one email deleted. Sometimes it doesn;t even delete and I have to click again, and wait another minute.
I am already overwhelmed. So please let me to start over again from zero. Oh, and these are getting in the way of blogging. I need to read them, too. ( ~_~)”
Oh, yeah, those too. Ha ha ha. You know what they say… all work and no play makes Jill whatever. Reading comics and mangas entertain me. Yep, Spiderman, and Walking Dead, the original. You do know this TV show is based on the comics, right? Oh, and lookit ! The new Spiderman is a Black teenager ! Cool ! ! * You do know Parker, the original Spiderman died, right ? *
Are you aware there’s something big going on here in the US ? The Federal government had been shut down, and to date, it’s still closed. Normally, I’d be ranting , huffing and puffing and what have you, here on WP, but I’ve decided to keep my lips zipped. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. . The issue is affordable care act ( ACA ) or what we call Obamacare. I just wish for everyone to have access to affordable health insurance. People shouldn’t die because they are poor.
It’s funny that the republicans also opposed mandated Social Security contributions and Medicare and Medicaid when they were first taken up and later implemented by Democrats half a century ago. They said it was a socialist/communistic policy that had no place in a democratic and free society . And now, 98 % of retired seniors have only their Social Security pension and Medicare to depend on. Republicans seem to abhor anything that will provide assistance to the poor, even a health insurance that’s not even free, just made affordable for everyone, including the poor. Heck , they hate anything that regulates potentially abusive business practices and laissez faire economy. One more thing, we were mandated to have all vehicles insured, why not our health ? There’s something seriously wrong with the mindset, I tell you. Hey, it’s for the common good, folks. Get over it. Even if you’re still young and healthy now you’d thank Obamacare when you get prostrate or breast cancer later in life. Enroll now and be secure.
Alright, I said enough. Zip. Peace. Miss Pollyana isn’t looking for a fight here.
So, anyway, as promised…. my Paris tour.
Shown here is the famous Notre Dame Cathedral and additional photos of the Eiffel Tower taken on our second day in Paris. We were there on our first day. And guess what, we came back on the third day.
Notre Dame Cathedral by Seine River.
.The girl in the pic is my cousin. The senior man is part of tour group, from Australia.
aaaargh ! Good thing , Paris fashion police didn’t arrest me. What the heck is that outfit . Sheer black blouse and a white undershirt. It’s an abomination. Who wears that? He hehe…. Take note, this photo was taken the day before the last day of our Euro tour… we;d run out of clothes to wear ! We were allowed one luggage each with specific dimension, not big enough for a one – month tour. Oh, we brought enough unmentionables, so perish the thought. We wore a fresh one everyday. ( though I wore the same blue jeans for one week. Ha ha ha )
The Photos taken inside Notre Dame are bad because we were not allowed to use flash. The originals are totally dark, like the photo below.
.Do you see that mini-balcony in the photo ? That’s the pulpit. That’s where the priests used to deliver their ” sermons”. Modern churches don’t have this anymore.
Well, this is it for now. My next post will be the last of my Euro tour, I hope. Oh, I did say I was going to have a countdown to my next trip to Asia in summer of 2014, just like what I did before my Euro tour . Well, it’s 9 months to go ! ! !
.Good day to all. Be good, be nice, and PEACE ! ! !
