Blah, Blah, Blah?!

My son and his new wife recently returned from a trip to Italy bringing with them five bottles of wine because "you just can't get wine like this in the states". AND, I must admit, after sharing a bottle with them, I agree. Not only was I struck with the smooth, slightly bubbly texture, and violet underhues, but also by the name "Blah, Blah." I wondered about the naming of it and settled on believing it was because of the amount of lively conversation that must have transpired while trying to come up with just the right name.

Walking on the treadmill, watching CNN and FOX news channels this morning (because I am seeking balance) I heard blah, blah, blah. Now, don't get me wrong, I want to hear opposing opinions because it prods me to think for myself and to know how I feel about things. In doing so I challenge my own opinion because others may have convincing reasons for believing things which I haven't considered.

Are there a perfect solutions for the social and economic troubles those news channels report on? I think not. Our founding fathers could NEVER have envisioned the America we have now. I don't believe they had a crystal ball nor do I believe anyone ever has had. But what we do have is history and hope. We have what has already transpired as a guide for making future decisions AND we have hope that things will turn out good in the end.

AND if you're lucky you have good friends, good wine and good blah, blah, blah!!
