I don't want any gardens of milk/honey, Hoors, Palaces made out of gemstones or anything.

Me either, does that make me a bad person? I just want to be with my family in Jannah.

My mom is sewing cloth masks for my stepsister who works in medical admissions and hasn't been provided with protective gear. I request prayers for the safety of my stepsister and her three daughters.

Gardens of milk and honey and palaces made of gemstones sound pretty boring to me.

Hoors, however...

:(

My local news ran a report that since C0VlD-l9 lockdowns last Spring, there has been a 14% increase in alcohol abuse and problems requiring treatment.

41% of this increase are women.

Another report has a gay celebration in a park. All prancing around in giddy mode.

Ahamduallah, l am getting old and about gone.

First . . . music to read my thought by:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCBJ-MaUTC4

 

In today's local news  the station showed the accelerating efforts at the food bank charities because so many people have had benefits and all run out. The national media is running stories about Biden falsely claiming endorsement by the Boilermaker's Union(22Oct20?) 

Baden's "The Plan" meeting with C0VlD-l9 advisors as Pfiser releases promising details on a safe,90%effective vaccine on schedule for Spring 2021.

"The Plan". That effervescent, efficacious, effusion of medical salvation that has no real meaning as the public health authorities and medical professions plod along as they were designed to do. 

Uncle Joe Baden and Kommie Kamal la-Scare-us want "forced" union revivals; even though most union members voted for Trump. https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/521343-joe-bidens-extremist-labor-agenda  Union control is a basic commie necessity.

And now comrades, you are now privy to some of the privy product of Uncle Joe and the Baden Bunch.

ldiots of the World . . . Unite.

Today is the one year anniversary of the first documented C0VlD-l9 case.

How things have changed in a year.

Last year, l'd to the grocery, like today, and people would stand in line and were ignoring everyone else.

Today, l went to the grocery, only now, people stand two meters apart and are scared of everyone else.

Why watch TV?

I like Star Trek, including the new ones, but besides that, I never see anything worth watching. It's all garbage and propaganda.

ln Memorium

Today, Daniel Cordier (10Aug20--20Nov20) died at age 100.

One of the decorated (by deGaulle) resistance/maquis leaders fighting the twisted-cross Nazis, he was secretary to Moulin in Lyon.

Pointedly, he died on the 75th Anniversary of when the Nuremberg Trials began on 20Nov1945.

https://www.france24.com/en/france/20201120-daniel-cordier-one-of-france-s-last-wwii-resistance-heroes-dies-age-100/

 He was an art dealer for the remainder of his life.

lt's Thanksgiving in America.

Aware of the desperate needs in Afghanistan, again, l made an online donation. Posted action as an encouragement to others.

Just a moment after clicking "donate" the news has this announcement:

"Argentina has declared 3 days of mourning for Maradona"

Maradona was an exceptional soccer player, responsible for the 1986 World Cup win -according to the sports news- and had an addiction to cocaine, alcohol dependency and sex workers plus ties to organized crime and other problems.

ln a civil comment, this here World is nuts.

Source: DeutscheWelle "The Day", 26Nov2020

Brian Goff interviewed Maradona's manager who is in England.

The manager said the Maradona thought/believed he had "divinity" in himself.

Yarrabi

Thought: Does not look good for him on the Last Day, does it?

People been cursing "2020" and I thought it was pretty silly. And then Arecibo Telescope collapsed. :cry: Definitely the saddest loss this year. 

 

Edit: ok that sounds callous. I meant the saddest high profile loss. Real people dying of preventable sickness is obviously much sadder.

Yes, l read that months ago. The PRC has one of these newly built.

No, it started to collapse months ago. A second cable fell a couple weeks ago, and the entire tower fell into the dish yesterday morning. 

China has a bigger dish under construction, which is better in many ways but doesn't have all the capabilities of the Arecibo Telescope. But China tends to keep its discoveries to itself, not to be shared with the world. Ideally, only international telescopes should be built. What happens in space affects us all.

We had pictures of this radio telescope in our school books.

From the picture, l can tell the trees weren't cut back. lt must have had a very poor maintenance budget.

The Wiki article has some cool info.

l was listening to dw.com's "to the Point" which this week discussed Ethiopia's PM Ahiy Ahmed Ali and the Tigray conflict.

In 2019, PM Ali won the Nobel Peace Prize for his part in the conflict resolution with Eritrea.

Now his army is driving people out of Ethiopia, the only country where your identity card registers your 'race.'

Similarly, Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded a Nobel in 1991 for non-violent politics. Later, she was complicit and complicit-by-silence in the Rhohingya  ethnic cleansing.

Thought: maybe the Nobel Committee should exercise a little more forethought when awarding this prize and award the Peace Prize for things more distant in the past.  American President James E. Carter was awarded his twenty-one years after he was President and a couple of decades of work in the Carter Center.

I don't really like the movie The message from 1976. It's alright and portrays events well but I don't like how Hazrat Abu Talib(عليه السلام) was depicted by an actor rather than giving Him(عليه السلام) the same treatment which we give the Masoom(Peace be upon them) in movies by not showing the face. It's really disrespectful to the father(عليه السلام) of the One(عليه السلام) who is the Master of the Shi'a in both worlds.

But I really like that scene in the movie when the actor who plays Hazrat Hamza(عليه السلام) says "There's only one God(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), Muhammad(SAW)'s God((سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى))".
