This is the premiere installment of This-N-That Sunday and I have no idea where it is going as I write these words. I’m just going to fly by the seat of my pants so to speak. Forgive me in advance if it seems like a mishmash, but that is as it was intended to be wasn’t it? Let’s get down to business.
It is nice to see that the rest of the world is going ahead with their plans to confront global warming. Even though the political leaders now in charge of our country have deemed it “Fake News”. Many US businesses are addressing the issue and trying to figure out how to make a profit from it. One alarming thing about global warming is that the experts tell us that we will probably not know when we reach the tipping point until after it happens. That’s kinda scary, especially for our kids and grandkids.
The VA Hospital Problem
It seems that the VA hospital system has been in trouble most of my lifetime. They just can’t seem to figure out how to be good at it. Corruption and poor service is a way of life. I don’t know, maybe it is naivety, but I kinda think the solution is not that difficult to find, that is, if you put the political part of it aside. Fold the VA into Medicare. You don’t hear too many seniors complain about Medicare. It takes care of us and doesn’t flood us with the paperwork as private insurance used to do to me in my pre-retirement years. I know the folks who are against this solution say that vets have unique problems that are not addressed by a system for the general population, but I think that is a lame excuse! Just send them to a “specialist” in those areas. It’s like my family doctor doesn’t know how to fix all heart problems but she does know who to send me to.
Damian Hirst – Artist
I saw a segment on CBS Sunday Morning recently about a United Kingdom artist named Damian Hirst. I never thought of an artist being a multi-millionaire as he is. Most of the high price painting are sold after they are dead. 🙂 As documented at my site CrackingCreativity, I am pretty obsessed with the topic of creativity this year and this guy has it in spades. He is like me, kind of “out there” but I do love his choice of colors for his works. I haven’t done a lot of studying on the topic of art yet but I guess you would call his work avant-garde. Whatever it is, I Like it!
Would You Like To Be A More Creative Person?
I want to remind you to check out my latest project. It is a one-year journey to become more creative. I am willing to bet that we all need more creativity in our lives. Just click on the widget that is always on the right side column of every page of this blog.
See you next Sunday for another mish-mash. Eventually, because of this new topic, I just might be able to clear all the orphaned Post-It notes off my very cluttered desk. 🙂
Two new categories here at RJsCorner and another blog at CrackingCreativity! We certainly do embrace change, don’t we? I’ll have more to say about that in some posts next week.
