May: In other international developments, hopes for a summit meeting between Kim Jong Un and President Trump soar when North Korea releases three American prisoners, only to be dashed when North Korea refuses to accept, in exchange, Stormy Daniels.

If you watch much live TV you probably have seen the My Pillow ads and know that the claims the founder of the company makes are ludicrous. You may not know that he is a huge Trump supporter who, like the president, has had his own legal problems.

I have nothing original to write about today (at least not yet) although I did change the logo on the website to be more informative so those searching my name on the Internet will know what the site is about and who I am. I am still hoping old friends from New York and Michigan will look me up and get in touch with me.
This is wonderful:
