Season Greetings

Merry Christmas

Happy Hanukah

Happy Kwanzaa

Happy Holidays

Along with wishing everyone joy and peace,  I also want to take this time to thank blog followers and participants.  2016 has been a busy year.  I reported on over 30 cases.   In April, Yahtzeebutterfly dedicated herself to writing a monthly post on Black American history.   I participate as much as possible in “Wordless Wednesday” which requires a photo or gif that has no words.  We even got a bit into politics this year.

thank-youAnd, we reached over 1,000 subscribed followers. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Word Press should soon release annual reviews, and I anxiously await this year’s review and will post it.  Other than that, I’ll be around off and on, but probably will not write any posts until after the New Year.

Remember those who are spending this holiday for the first time without a loved one.  Send them love and positive energy.

 

Peace on earth; good will to all mankind.

      Thanks for posting this video, Xena. I love the lyrics:

      “…See the day
      (To lay before the king. Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum. Rum-pa-pum-pum. Rum-pa-pum-pum.)
      When men of goodwill
      Live in peace, live in peace again.
      (So, to honor him. Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum. When we come.)
      Peace on Earth. Can it be?”

      Both: “Every child must be made aware.
      Every child must be made to care.
      Care enough for his fellowman.
      To give all the love that he can.”

      Bowie: “I pray my wish will come true
      Bing: Little baby, pa-rum-pa-pum-pum.
      For my child and your child, too.”

  15. I’ve had enough of danger
    And people on the streets
    I’m looking out for angels
    Just trying to find some peace
    Now I think it’s time
    That you let me know
    So if you love me
    Say you love me
    But if you don’t just let me go

    ‘Cause teacher
    There are things that I don’t want to learn
    And the last one I had
    Made me cry
    So I don’t want to learn to
    Hold you, touch you
    Think that you’re mine
    Because it ain’t no joy
    For an uptown boy
    Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

    When you were just a stranger
    And I was at your feet
    I didn’t feel the danger
    Now I feel the heat
    That look in your eyes
    Telling me no
    So you think that you love me
    Know that you need me
    I wrote the song, I know it’s wrong
    Just let me go

    And teacher
    There are things
    That I don’t want to learn
    Oh the last one I had
    Made me cry
    So I don’t want to learn to
    Hold you, touch you
    Think that you’re mine
    Because it ain’t no joy
    For an uptown boy
    Whose teacher has told him goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

    So when you say that you need me
    That you’ll never leave me
    I know you’re wrong, you’re not that strong
    Let me go

    And teacher
    There are things
    That I still have to learn
    But the one thing I have is my pride
    Oh so I don’t want to learn
    Hold you, touch you
    Think that you’re mine
    Because there ain’t no joy
    For an uptown boy
    Who just isn’t willing to try

    I’m so cold
    Inside
    Maybe just one more try
