Happy New Year from the Coastal Network–Reflections and Thoughts!

Dear friends,

From my perspective, 2020 was a terrible year. I have never felt so lonely, so concerned, so disappointed, so angry, and so sad. I am certain many of you share my feelings. I am not going to go into details. We all, regardless of our station in life, have experienced a disconcerting situation this past year.

Today is a new beginning. When I was a kid I had a big sign on my bedroom wall that said “Cheer Up, things could be worse, so I cheered up, and sure enough things got worse!” Folks, I anticipate 2021 and 2022 to be really tough. Things are going to change. America is going to be different. Regardless, this patriot intends to keep fighting for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Indeed, “hope springs eternal.” We must keep trying.

For me, the battle is to remain healthy, fight for freedom of speech, lower taxes, stop censorship and propaganda, keep the 2nd amendment, and to promote capitalism. For me, mediocrity is a fate worse than death and the destruction of the American Dream is unacceptable.

As long as I can, I will speak my mind and attempt to give you my viewpoint on things that are happening. Sometimes, I make a little difference and that gives me reason to hope and to continue.

Tonight, I will be staying home and watching TV with my beloved feline-“Miss Josephine”. I plan on cooking a pork roast with Sauerkraut, and some mashed potatoes. I will also cook a few traditional black-eyed peas for good luck. I have a bottle of Crystal Champagne in the fridge and an apple pie. I intend to splurge like the outrageous Epicurean I really am, while I salute America, and pray to God for salvation.

I wish each of you many blessings.

Indeed, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!  God bless you and God bless America!

Sincerely yours,
