Sunday, March 19th open thread: ‘Crosseyed and Painless’
Here is the open thread for Sunday, March 19th. Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.
Last week we discussed 5 stories, did you miss any of them? If so there is an easy way to make sure it does not happen again. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.
In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.
The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!
Last week was a relatively slow week at America’s Watchtower with the blizzard wiping out a day of posting and next week could be just as slow for another (better) reason which I will get to after the musical selection.
Here is Talking Heads performing one of my all-time favorite songs–“Crosseyed and Painless.” This line seems appropriate in today’s world of fake news:
“Facts are never what they seem to be
No information left of any kind”
Speaking of being cross-eyed and painless, that leads me to the reason why posting could be light next week. On Thursday Lauri and I will be headed to Key West for a long weekend vacation. We intend to do nothing whatsoever but sit by the pool and enjoy a few cocktails–for all intents and purposes we will be cross-eyed and painless. Other than going away for a night for our anniversary every year this will be our first vacation without our beloved boys. We will be flying home on Monday the 27th.
Of course I will be bringing my laptop and I am an early riser while Lauri is, well, not so much. So I might do some posting in the mornings before our days get started if anything strikes my fancy but we will have to wait and see. I will be providing an open thread on Wednesday so people can post about what is going on while we are gone.
