May 27, 2016 Ridley's Believe It Or Not Sunscreen Protection Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not For May 27, 2016 Fortunately less than 238 days to go in President Obama’s   pathetic lame duck term; political theater in high gear as the Libertarian Party holds its convention this weekend with its likely nominee Gary Johnson polling at 11 percent and raising great speculation whether he will siphon more votes from Trump or Clinton (assuming she wins the nomination which given the IG’s report and the continuing FBI investigation is looking less and less likely; HRC is still in denial that she has done anything wrong but look for her unfavorability numbers to increase; on a non political theater note this weekend in Orange County is the annual Highland Games and Scottish Festival at the Orange County Fairgrounds. As always, I hope your Friday is off to a great start and that  you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, a music link to Elvis, factoids of interest, a  relevant quote from Olivia Wilde, while looking forward to enjoying a grape popsicle, blessed with a positive attitude and plenty of sunscreen and  secure in  the knowledge that, if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like birthdays, weddings, or  anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem  at a great price  tailored to the event and the recipient.
