Hoping For The Best

30 Apr 2021 – But Be Prepared For the Worst

Tue-Thu: 1st 2021SuperMoon seen from the concrete-jungle of a public-housing estate. Tkx for all the shares of this beautiful moon around the world from everyone. Plx do remember to be humble as we are all under the same sky, looking at the same moon. Time for healing, resting, reflecting with high hopes for the best.

Hoping for the best, but be prepared for the worst has been ingrained in me by my father ever since I can remember, and with this in me, have managed to survive OK so far, tkx dad.

Saddened with the news from India, but what I really am not able to understand is why in these pandemic circumstances are ppl permitted to gather in 100s&1,000s for whatever elections, events, functions, etc???


Bloomberg puts SIN, NZ and Australia as the safest places to be in the world. SIN has been ranked as the best place to be during the pandemic. With 61,000 cases, 30 deaths & 20% of the population vaccinated, it has topped Covid-19 resilience ranking.



Not gloating or boasting, not advisable to judge any country with that of another, but sadly the whole world is effected and suffers when a pandemic becomes a pawn to those manipulating for material, political&power gains. The below link, tkx to Jules – a long, but educational&interesting read:


Fri: TGIF on the last day of this Apr2021 – a good weekend to all. PP mentioned she don’t think like an elderly person, but body obviously looks it and that our parents acted old in their 50s – how true when the body&mind are not quite in sync! Our parents lived in a different era and I am not sure how or what an elderly person thinks?? All I can do is to be myself as best as I know how to be myself – Cogito, ergo sum

Have submitted 5 of my favourite AT pix for ATC Natural Beauty: 14 States, Unlimited Inspiration (dateline 30Apr). MaxPatch/NC taken on a revisit as the 1st time there in 2005, arrived near mid-night in pitch darkness. CraigCreek/VA

From Garry24Apr: Easy to see who gets right of way on the roads up here! Here size matters! I did pass one (not overtake) that was towing FOUR tanker trailers!

Wow! am glad that I am not the driver or on this road here!! If I have to drive on a road trip, the vehicle will not be larger than the white SUV here and NO trailer.
