"By the 1860s, there were lots of things around here for settlers to fight- illness, insects, hardship, Comanche Indians, and starting in 1861, the Yankees." (Images of America: Southlake by Connie Cooley and the Southlake Historical Society) Image
Early Southlake settler Spencer Graham is lauded by the United Confederate Veterans (UCV) for "citizenship, military service, character, and Christian qualities." (Images of America: Southlake by Connie Cooley and the Southlake Historical Society) Image

#FBF 🧵: Found my old "Letter to the Editor" submission which was published (heavily edited) in the now defunct Southlake Times. Dated September 8, 2009. #flashbackfriday @Carrollisd #Southlake
@Carrollisd I wrote this piece after learning @Carrollisd would not allow teachers to show @BarackObama's address to students during class. Parents had to remove them from school if they wanted their children to watch it.
@Carrollisd @BarackObama "This decision is less about time constraints and more about the collective closed-mindedness of a community. It is about the fear of exposing children to different ideals than they have heard at home-- that they might actually form opinions according to their own free will."

How about a #FlashbackFriday, also a #FluorideFriday #FluorideFact. Dr Dean did his level best to slow the bandwagon down, to no avail. A very specific, small population mentioned.
That paper is the cornerstone of the theory that adding #fluorine to our diet using our water prevents tooth decay.
The stone is probably fluorite...
Speaking of stone, and #fluoridation, and putting things on pedestals, DYK?

Sorry state of affairs. -|- "Like so many of England’s children today, most if not all will need extracting because of extensive decay. The prospect for the second teeth is not good."
Mustn't be so hard on themselves, 'disgrace' is bit much. After all, this is representative of the facts, such as they are. -|- "This is in spite of the fact that dental decay, or caries, is virtually entirely preventable. It makes the situation a disgrace to our modern society."
Even though the solution is known, the fact it is not being strongly advocated is bothersome. Neglectful even. -|- "The state of dentition there shocked me, especially the state of children’s dentition. It was not the deprivation that caused this; ..."

This was my old truck. 🥲

In 2017, I donated it to @freestore15104 it’s saved 1000’s + 1000’s of pounds of food, merchandise, furniture for those they serve.

At 189,435 miles she gave all that she had to give. 😇💀

If you’re able, their new truck🙏🏻👇…
The new truck is a Ford 2012 with an 8ft bed that would have a long, long life and help feed, clothe and resource local families for a long, long time.

100% of any funds generously donated go to its purchase.

Thank you. 😄
This truck is used multiple times a week for food rescues from Trader Joe’s, Costco, WholeFoods etc.

All of the 1st quality food and personal care items are given at no cost -ever- to families in need.

Flashback Friday.

Coronavirus 2020
...a love story for people who like to boil bunnies but can’t because fur is murder.

March 2020. My first mask. Awww.
Next time say temporary. Always say temporary unless the new reality includes the return of Prince, George Michael, Leonard Cohen and Bowie. They held the fabric of the universe together.
Aww. See it? Our first carrot and stick.

Two weeks to flatten the curve? Nope. Stop the spread. We just didn’t think they’d be...well...power hungry dicks.

It’s funny because we’re so dumb but we put in charge that many Smeegles even dumber than us.

When my label told me i would be singing with @beyonce as the first act of the show Divas, I said “I don't dance." They know I don't dance, right?” My label assured me, there would be no dancing.
I showed up for the first rehearsal and the producer greeted me saying “lets dance!” Folk singers don't dance. As a child I had a recurring nightmare that was basically this exact scenario. Now here I was with the legendary and amazing Beyoncé, and I had no guitar to protect me.
That and my dyslexia and there was no way I’d remember the choreography. How did it work out? It was all due to Beyoncé. She kept simplifying choreography until I could get it. She stayed after our slotted rehearsal time to work with me.

#FlashbackFriday: Wednesday was a remarkable day for the Little Sisters of the Poor. Even after 7 years and 2 trips to #SCOTUS, the Little Sisters (and I) know we live in a world where #SCOTUS will protect their religious exemption & their mission of caring for the elderly poor. Image
Because we couldn’t physically gather at #SCOTUS this year, @BECKETlaw and @WomenReligious hosted a virtual rally that featured members of Congress, faith leaders, and non-profit organizations. Check out these highlights ⬇️ (2/6)
Catholic nuns (not Little Sisters) led thousands in a rosary in front of a rainy #SCOTUS. It was inspiring to witness these selfless women pray for our nation, joined virtually by even more nuns! Little Sisters of the Poor from CA➡️MD prayed from #sociallydistant chapels. (3/6) Image

That time I said “No”, when I really wanted to say “Yes.”

#FlashbackFriday #Thread
It was my first semester, 1st Year at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun state. I had just met this guy who had a car, that automatically signified some sort of privileged lifestyle, we shall call him Ama.

Ama was a good lad but I had an abroad boyfriend.
Ama wasn’t particularly good looking according to my standards but he was tall, stylish, funny and laughed with his eyes. The first day I met Ama, he did not hesitate to tell me, “I’ll take over from your London boyfriend, out of sight must be out of mind.”

He meant every word.

Tucker Calling Out Both Bloomberg For Apologizing For Stop & Frisk & Conservatives For Calling Him 'Racist' For It

"Unlike Sharpton & Black Lives Matter or the new Bail Law in NY or the Criminal Justice Reform Bill we're all supposed to like, Stop & Frisk actually saved lives."
#FlashbackFriday President @realDonaldTrump ran as the "Law & Order Candidate."
@realDonaldTrump #FlashbackFriday Pat Buchanan:

"The mob headed in to ransack & loot the apartments of the terrified old men & women inside...But the mob retreated, because it had met the one thing that could stop it: Force, rooted in justice & backed by moral courage."

#FlashbackFriday Bernie in 2013, what happened?

"Corporate America is kind of using immigration reform as a means to continue their effort to lower wages in the USA & we must not allow that to happen."

@realDonaldTrump won on a similar America First Immigration policy.
@realDonaldTrump .@BernieSanders in 2013 Calling Out Abuse of H-2B Guest Worker Program

"I think it is a slap in the face not only to our young people, but to many working people who do not have much say 'no we're going to have to bring people in from abroad to do those jobs.'"
@realDonaldTrump @BernieSanders The Left calls us all racist for saying same thing.

"Instead of raising wages what employers are doing is saying 'we've got huge amounts of cheap labor all over the world & instead of raising wages for American workers we're going to bring in cheap labor from around the world.'"
