More 'This and That' ....

I've been neglecting this blog for a while, because I've been too carried away with Facebook. I got on it before that disastrous election in the USA, and it got habit-forming. I've met some great people on there, but I've also met my share of the "under-educated"... the ones who elected Boy Wonder Donald. And Boy, do we Wonder about him!

On FB this morning, the subject of Germany came up, and I did three versions of a desktop background of the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria....




This is the castle that inspired Disney to create theirs, and this is proof that you don't get a second chance to make a first impression.

Moving along here, I'm beginning to wonder if anyone can get Donald Trump under control. He seems to be pitifully lacking in the usual knowledge of our world and its countries, and their locations, and how to deal with them. As I mentioned on Facebook the other day, it's a mystery how anyone with his advantages could so successfully avoid a basic education. But as someone on there explained, he simply hires the brains he needs, so that he doesn't have to use any of his own. And that's good for him, because in a battle of wits, he would be at a definite disadvantage. Money might buy someone's brains, but it certainly doesn't by manners, morals, integrity, or self-control. We've seen the proof already.
