The Nobel Peace Prize winner and civil rights movement leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and killed on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tenn. He changed my life forever and I was only 2. My mom used to remind me as I got older of a man who was tired of there being a split in this world. She told of a man who was black and was smarter than anyone would ever be. I was so happy she told me these stories, because I might never have really known about him until I got older.
For the most part, I think people try to do their best. Working hard really is in most of us. My whole life, I've tried to take on more than I should, so that I can improve myself. I have been fired from one job. A couple of weeks after it happened my so-called boss said that he needed someone to be an example. I thought that was a pretty lame excuse considering I wasn't even the one who made the mistake. Guilt by association shouldn't be a thing, but it is. After seeing how that boss handled things and the way he handled his other employees, it blows my mind that he even got the job in the first place. Should some bosses be bosses, or did they get the job by default?
Well, I'm glad this story didn't come from the Yakima Valley. I have complete faith in most everyone around here that they wouldn't take legal advice from a website. They would go to a better source than that, right?
It has been revealed. The crayon color that Crayola is taking out is Dandelion. I thought it was going to be the Apricot. Taking out Dandelion makes complete sense, though. It is very close to yellow. Apricot and Dandelion are the two colors that I really didn't use as a kid.
Every now and again, I complain about not having anything to do in the Yakima Valley. But I guess I should have paid closer attention -- there is a ton of stuff to do. I just needed to look harder. Thanks to the great artist Christine Mendoza from Paint Nite Yakima, there is now something really fun to do. I also had no idea I could paint!
Reading is so important. It helps you improve your vocabulary and expand your mind. TV has really taken away from our imagination, that's for sure. It is also exciting when our libraries in the Yakima Valley come up with something new for us to discover -- especially new authors for us to read. Yakima Libraries is beginning a new series called "Authors Out Loud." How exciting!
It always cracks me up that in the midst of all the turmoil and problems our great nation faces, there is always something completely stupid that a politician does. I mean, how random is it that Republican Sens. Mike Enzi of Wyoming and Arizona's John McCain have introduced a bill that would do away with the penny?
I drink regular coffee. I use my percolator and some creamer and I am good. My daughter goes a few steps further, though. She drinks the darkest black coffee you can find and when it comes to espresso, she takes five shots.
When I was a kid, I was over the top with joy when they invented microwave ovens! What an awesome invention. The microwave saves a lot of electricity when you use it, because you do not have to turn the oven on to heat up your food.
When I say "Mom & Pop" I mean hardworking local people who have started their own small businesses. Thus, the phrase "Mom & Pop." Starting your own business takes a lot of guts, willpower and some good hard work to keep it going. We have some excellent small businesses in the Yakima Valley. March 29 is National Small Business Day, so I salute them today.
