Did you know?
That today is the All the News That’s Fit to Print Anniversary? On February 10, 1897, the New York Times slogan first appeared: All the News That’s Fit to Print. It was the winner of a contest organized by its new owner, Adolph Ochs. Trivia buffs: some of the entries included “Clean, crisp, bright, snappy; read it daily and be happy;” “Aseptic journalism up to date;” “Full of meat, clean and neat;” and “You do not want what the New York Times does not print.”
I’m listening to the radio. I’m listening to a talk show, from earlier in the week, I think its last friday. A mother is on talking about her 12 year old daughter and her friend, who were almost abducted on their way home from school a few days ago.
It is so scary! 5 foreign guys in their 20’s, and one guy in his 40’s approached them, the guys were in a car, and they beckoned the girls to get in. The girls knew not to, but they panicked, and luckily another man in a van came along and blocked the car and allowed the girls time to run off into a nearby store.
God knows what would have happened if he hadnt come along! The girls may have been seriously hurt, or even killed!
Whats the world coming to? Kids cant even walk a short distance home from school nowadays! Everywhere is so unsafe, nothing and no one is safe these days.
I really shouldnt be listening to such things before bed. Now I definitely wont sleep thinking about this.
Why not enter this contest? You might win!

We all have life storms, and when we get the rough times and we recover from them, we should celebrate that we got through it. No matter how bad it may seem, there’s always something beautiful that you can find.
my evening has been good. its so hot here. the sun didnt go down until gone past 8 tonight. i took nitro out to the nearby park for a run. he loved that. he made friends with a husky. i was a little nervous of them playing together because the husky was so darn big. but they were ok. the woman who owned the husky was lovely. she assured me her dog was tame, and he was, he came bounding over to me and i patted him. it was nice to just sit on the bench in the park. it was very peaceful. when we came back inside i watched a little bit of tv. i got chatting to one of the other residents who lives here long term. she is a wheelchair user. i’m not sure what disability she has but she told me she hadnt been a wheelchair user all of her life. she was really nice and i enjoyed chatting to her. some of the residents baked a cake tonight so we all got to have some. it tasted yummy. tomorrow morning my pa is coming. i have to go to my gp because the abscesses that were on my stomach have flared up again. i bet he gives me antibiotics and i am also going to ask him if there is any sort of cream i can rub into the area where they are. after i get done seeing the gp we are going for coffee. at least i think that is the plan. hopefully tomorrow will be another sunny day.
