Sloughing off

Soaking the sunshine.

ANOTHER SHOUT OUT FOR SHUT-INS

Night Train to Lisbon, a movie made from a novel by Pascal Mercer, is a treat in these days of maybe spring.

Imagine Jeremy Irons on the deck of a houseboat in Lisbon  reading…. and beautifully shot beautiful women in the past and present of Spain.

And a 4-20 to you

You think that solitaire’s not a thinking game.

that’s because you haven’t yet thought near enough.

 

You think it is easy.

It really is tough.

 

If you still have to wonder,

you’ve not played enough.

A SHOUTOUT FOR SHUT-INS

 

For anyone browsing Netflix for a quick and quirky flick fix… imagine John Turturro and Woody Allen.  In Brooklyn.  In a Turturro-written and directed film called “Fading Gigolo”

A bizarre and interesting film whereby a financially failing  former bookstore owner  Allen ends up pimping Turturro, a tango savvy  florist.  It’s written as a comedy  – with a terrific soundtrack and lovely choreography.    Watch it for Turturro’s orange shoes, if nothing else.

 

Another Tidbit – if you’ve got access to John Oliver’s This Week Last Night (or whichever it is) His piece involving salmon WILL make you laugh.

REYNOLDS RAP

POT PROMISES

by Polly Reynolds

So far Rhode Island’s handling of, uses of, overseeing of, and implementing incorporation of cannabis into society has been strikingly stellar.  There is absolutely no reason to stop now: There are huge reasons to leap and lead the mari-juaggernaut  rolling in from the west.

Rhode Island is poised to become the first state in the East to legalize “ recreational” (versus “medicinal”) marijuana – and thereby also legalize Hemp.

Colorado, ending its first year of legalized cannabis, has already created 18,000 marijuana-related jobs and garnered millions to the state treasury.  Meanwhile European entrepreneurs keep selling us hemp seed and product(s).

Hemp: a multi-use, multi-faceted, miracle substance will spawn major innovations and industries from here.  Agriculturally, medicinally, environmentally and materially,  the sky is the limit for what can grow on here.

Come on, Rhode Island leaders (?).  Instead of plodding along familiar lanes by habit making turns where old landmarks used to be, fit the sails and steer the ship .

Nothing more typically  R.I. than missed opportunity
