I had open borders.  Everyone was welcome.  We were robbed blind and injured badly.  Still, I am open, I said.  I build bridges not walls.  Again, robbed and injured.  Now I understand that walls are not bad.  Walls are walls.  Bridges are not good.  Bridges are bridges. Vetting is not bad.  Vetting is vetting.

These days, I appreciate looking into the background and motives of those wishing to enter. And we welcome many.  We are strong enough to help and prosper together.

Healed.  Stronger and wiser.

Your home is your country.  You are free to leave the door open while you are at work and while you sleep.  You are free to clothe, feed, insure and care for all who enter.  That sounds lovely to me.

A cell wall is a structural layer surrounding some types of cells, situated outside the cell membrane. It can be tough, flexible, and sometimes rigid. It provides the cell with both structural support and protection, and also acts as a filtering mechanism.

If you are having a difficult time with the election results (I understand), please watch this.


5 Things Newport

My husband and I are currently excited about our new book, The 5-Things Travel Guide.  In case we don’t get around to writing it (a very real possibility) here is the concept:  for each location, we give you the top 5 things to do, according to us.  Here’s our list for Newport, Rhode Island.

  1. Cliff Walk – this is a beautiful and long walk.  Wear a bathing suit and pack a towel on a hot day so you can jump into the Atlantic Ocean.  Otherwise, just walk and enjoy the view on any day.  Gorgeous!
  2. The Old Stone Mill, Touro Park at night.  It looks so much prettier at night!
  3. The International Tennis Hall of Fame – even if you don’t like or appreciate tennis, this place is worth a stop.
  4. Sail an America’s Cup sailboat!  Such a great way to be in Newport.  The crews and captain are very friendly and it’s a blast!
  5. Any Mansion.  It’s Newport.  See a mansion.
