It is so easy to go negative. There is so much bad and outrageous news. But perhaps we can find some balance. I have to say, Hubbell, Craven and Rosenberg buoy me up.

On the other hand my letter of next week might be viewed as less cheery...

Maybe I'll balance it with a letter about the family's new puppies!

Yes, tell us about your new puppies! There is nothing like puppy joy. And I agree about Hubbell, Craven and Rosenberg, I subscribe to all of them. They deliver the news but always provide hope, as well as promoting action with links to get involved.

Good column, Bill, thank you! Especially after the Biden/truck posting!

FIngers crossed! Have you heard of the Rational Boomer? He's on TikTok, YouTube, and most other platforms. He also makes me feel better about the future, and even the nail-biter election ahead.
