Last Monday in my email, I talked about having more questions than answers about the way forward for the US and global economies. Since that email went out, the week certainly brought up more questions, one being whether our economy needs and/or will get another round of stimulus spending. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has indicated that, if it happens, the senate will produce a bill in July. By the end of this week we will be in July so we will see how that works out. The attached article, Second Stimulus check” goes over all the different possibilities.

Which means that the 4th of July will be upon us soon. Not sure how many gatherings or picnics or parades will come about but I thought you might be interested in the different possibilities for a dessert. They all look really good, but Jean makes a parfait that resembles the “USA parfaits dessert”. And, she can make it with no sugar and it tastes great.

Since the Declaration of Independence was signed 244 years ago, our country has constantly moved forward toward a freer and fairer society. It is Jean’s and my hope and prayer that all sides can come together and make solid improvements in policing and other areas of society. I have been slowly reading a book titled Land of Hope that has been tracing the history of the United States starting with the concepts and ideas brought over from Europe. It takes time but, eventually, the United States gets it right. Now let’s all go out and, after celebrating 244 years of independence this Saturday look forward to celebrating #245 in a year As always, should you have any questions or wish to talk, please don’t hesitate to email, or call me.
