Blog Correction, Correction

Hello Everyone!

Correction for Weekly Prompts Word White blog.

Chinese New Year is actually February 25, 2020.
Correction date should be “January 25, 2020”.

I read this part from “Chinese Fortune Calendar“:
The first day of the White Rat year is not the Chinese New Year Day in Chinese Astrology. The first day of the Tiger month is the first day of the Chinese Astrology year. This day is called the Start of Spring, which is the date when the sun enters the 315th degree on the tropical zodiac. This day is around February 4, each year. 2020 Chinese White Rat starts on February 4, 2020, in China’s time zone. That means Chinese Lunar New Year is not the first day of the White Rat Year. If a baby is born before February 4, 2020, then the baby’s zodiac sign is the Pig, not Rat.

I have learned my lesson to read information more carefully.

Jabberwocky

Hello Everyone!

Happy Monday! Let’s start the week with Jabberwocky!

What the heck is “jabberwocky”? Well let’s see!
It could be someone saying a loopy story when they are feeling sad, or it can be someone in politics saying whatever during an election year, or a creature from Alice in Wonderland.
I’m sticking with Alice in Wonderland.

Originator of story is Lewis Carroll.

Have a great day in Wonderland! Hope

America’s Heroes

Hi Everyone!

I didn’t forget anyone on my post from 3/30/2020. I felt it probably would be very, very long to keep everyone’s interest.

Here I go:
Restaurants still cooking our favorites for us,
Bus Drivers picking up passengers that have to work,
People helping food banks, sort food, package food for delivery,
Funeral personnel taking care of our love ones,
TV hints on how to handle items that come through our doors at home, including us,
People showing their generosity to others, like the man who used his savings to purchase gas for nurses – Bravo!
Entertainment industries stars giving us courage to go on, “We’ll beat IT” – Bravo.

Everyone we all have to think positive,
to beat “IT”!
Can we do “IT”?
Yes we can!!!!

Have a great day! Hope

Cocoon

Hi Everyone!

I think I’ll wrap myself up as a mummy! Hopefully this will keep me safe from COVID-19.
Of course I will be the best wrapped mummy!

Oh my gosh! I came out of my cocoon too soon!
What can I do now?
Hello Miss! Can you spin me a cocoon?

Have a great day! Hope
Hey you! You’re only 5.5 feet away from me!
Remember be patience with one another we are all going thru tough times.

Are You Bored?

Some ideas for ages “teens to ????”

Hi Everyone!

In this time of not being able to do your daily regiment, are you bored? Is your family bored?

Well do any of you (from teens to ????) still have your Lego, Mega Building Blocks, Jumbo Blocks, K’Nex, Magformers, Gili Stem and any other types of building.

Many of you have video apps where you can even have contests between relatives and friends. You can add your “build” to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, HubPages, etc. Always research which sites you want to use.

Have a great day! Hope

America vs. COVID-19

Hello Everyone!

To the people of the United States of America
Thank You!!!!

America we are CHAMPIONS!

I have seen, heard or someone told me about people turning their companies around from making their own products, so they can produce what is essential to many fields who test, take care, responsive to the need of others.
First responders have the most need of protection.
St. Michael, Archangel for first responders.

Isn’t it funny how “we the people” can get things rolling.
Companies with sewing machines masking masks, gowns, etc.
3D printers making products for healthcare workers PPE
.
Hmm! I wonder what else they can make to help out in this crisis?
Car companies making ventilators,
Companies that were closed are now reopened to make PPE products
PPE = Personal Protective Equipment

See The Hill.com

“We the people” use our imagination, look at what is in front of us, a light bulb goes on and there we are, necessary items for our people in the front lines.
“We the people” also assist people around us. Calling, waving, singing, mailing, deliveries, and much, much more.
Did you know there are some people that don’t even know what’s going? Homeless people are now being informed when they come for a meal.

Some of us may have good ideas, but don’t know how to get them going.
If someone has an idea, how about listening to what they say.
Be honest! Is it good, not so good, bad.
Be honest! Hey! You know what, I can give you suggestions and see what happens and work together, by phone or video messaging?

Remember 6 foot rule!

Food Pantries helping those in need, packaging products, delivering them.
Food companies that keep live product moving. It’s cleaned, packaged, delivered to stores.

“We the people” for some reason have the inquenity, imagination, fortitude, courage to say “I can do that”.
Once we see or hear “I can do that”, and before you know it, supplies, products, etc, get moving to those in need.

We the people” have pulled together to make the necessities needed to keep our country safe. Keep product moving. BRAVO!

Wait a minute what about robots? I know they are designed to do multiple tasks.
Do you think they could help out?
Could they manage to handle items that are too contagious for humans to handle?

My brain is on a roll! Thank you for reading!

Have a great day! Hope
