Tuesday Treasure Trove

Things of Note:

Not much to say today. On a personal level, I had a pretty good weekend. Helped celebrate a good friend’s birthday over drinks and James Bond; went on a nice dinner date with the hubs; had plenty of time to curl up and read and watch some Netflix and soak up puppy cuddles. It was good.

The same cannot be said for other people around the world; particularly in Paris, but certainly not limited to there. I haven’t overtly said anything about recent events on social media, because what is there to say? I don’t have any earth-shattering ideas about how to prevent things like this in the future. It’s all been said, it’s all been hashed over. There is, so far, no good answer. I’m not so filled with hate I have to spew it online, nor do I really have any hope that situations like these are going away anytime soon. The locale changes, but can you at this point remember the last time we had a week go by without a bombing or public shooting somewhere in the world? Even if you restrict it to the US; I read a stat yesterday: we’ve had 319 days in 2015 so far, and 325 mass shootings. More than 1 per day. It’s a sad commentary on the state of humanity that this is our new normal.

*sigh* I don’t understand it, and I don’t have an answer.

Tell me something good that has happened to you recently.
