Another day in Red Bluff, California, with very hot temperatures over 110F with humidity of over 40%. Heavy clouds and thunderstorms are coming.
We start our day at 4 am doing indoor chores, walking and Tai Chi practice, watering, and gardening before temperatures climb over 90F.
Fortunately, we live in a country and state in peacetime. Food is plentiful for people working in America. Governmental and private support networks help the impoverished. Electricity and water systems are working. Most people are relatively sensible and don't feel the urge to enslave or kill others over religious and political differences. Hopefully, we can remain at peace.
Many thanks to all the decent and hardworking men and women, blue collar and white collar workers, homemakers, and service providers that have greatly contributed to our prosperity. Thanks to all the men and women working in educational services, human services, fire and police protective services, and medical services that have improved and enhanced our lives.
I thank all the men and women that have served in the Armed Forces that help keep us safe and secure. May our governmental leaders make wise decisions to keep us at peace and encourage us to contribute to the continued prosperity we enjoy. I was a volunteer in the United States Air Force from 1969-1973; hopefully, others will also help in their communities in America in some constructive ways. May peace and productivity return to the many war torn countries around the world.
Have a safe and responsible Fourth of July!
