Happy Thanksgiving

My thoughts and best wishes go out to everyone.
We are limiting our exposure here which is sad as I'm missing having some of those I love the most gathered together but we all know it's for the best.
T G for the internet. It's helped take the edge off as we can still communicate and exchange greetings.
Stay safe, stay well.

It’s a Zoom holiday this year with the kids and g-kids and they’re not far from us. Despite all that’s negative around us don’t be fooled, so much good abounds. We’re thankful for everything.
God bless and Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

We have traveled enough to know how blessed we are to live in the USA.

A THOUGHT AT THANKSGIVING or any day.

An interesting perspective. It reminds us how fortunate we are.

THE CURRENT POPULATION OF EARTH IS AROUND 7.8 BILLION PEOPLE.

FOR MOST PEOPLE, IT IS A LARGE FIGURE. THAT IS ALL.

HOWEVER, SOMEONE HAS CONDENSED THE 7.8 BILLION IN THE WORLD INTO 100 PERSONS, AND THEN INTO VARIOUS PERCENTAGE STATISTICS.



THE RESULTING ANALYSIS IS RELATIVELY MUCH EASIER TO COMPREHEND.



OUT OF 100 :

11 ARE IN EUROPE

5 ARE IN NORTH AMERICA

9 ARE IN SOUTH AMERICA

15 ARE IN AFRICA

60 ARE IN ASIA



49 LIVE IN THE COUNTRYSIDE

51 LIVE IN CITIES



12 SPEAK CHINESE

5 SPEAK SPANISH

5 SPEAK ENGLISH

3 SPEAK ARABIC

3 SPEAK HINDI

3 SPEAK BENGALI

3 SPEAK PORTUGUESE

2 SPEAK RUSSIAN

2 SPEAK JAPANESE

62 SPEAK THEIR OWN LANGUAGE.



77 HAVE THEIR OWN HOUSES

23 HAVE NO PLACE TO LIVE



21 ARE OVER-NOURISHED

63 CAN EAT FULL MEALS.

15 ARE UNDER-NOURISHED

1 ATE THE LAST MEAL, BUT DID NOT MAKE IT TO THE NEXT MEAL.



THE DAILY COST OF LIVING FOR 48 IS LESS THAN US$2.



87 HAVE CLEAN DRINKING WATER

13 EITHER LACK CLEAN DRINKING WATER OR HAVE ACCESS TO A WATER SOURCE THAT IS POLLUTED.



75 HAVE MOBILE PHONES

25 DO NOT.



30 HAVE INTERNET ACCESS

70 DO NOT HAVE CONDITIONS TO GO ONLINE.



7 RECEIVED UNIVERSITY EDUCATION

93 DID NOT ATTEND COLLEGE.

83 CAN READ

17 ARE ILLITERATE.



33 ARE CHRISTIANS

22 ARE MUSLIMS

14 ARE HINDUS

7 ARE BUDDHISTS

12 ARE OTHER RELIGIONS

12 HAVE NO RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.



26 LIVE LESS THAN 14 YEARS

66 DIED BETWEEN 15 - 64 YEARS OF AGE

8 ARE OVER 65 YEARS OLD.



IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN HOME, EAT FULL MEALS & DRINK CLEAN WATER, HAVE A MOBILE PHONE, CAN SURF THE INTERNET, AND HAVE GONE TO COLLEGE, YOU ARE IN THE MINUSCULE PRIVILEGED LOT. (IN THE LESS THAN 7% CATEGORY).



AMONG 100 PERSONS IN THE WORLD, ONLY 8 LIVE OR EXCEED THE AGE OF 65.

YOU WHO ARE OVER 65 YEARS OLD, BE CONTENT & GRATEFUL. CHERISH LIFE, GRASP THE MOMENT.

YOU DID NOT LEAVE THIS WORLD BEFORE THE AGE OF 64 YEARS LIKE THE 92 PERSONS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE YOU. CHERISH EVERY REMAINING MOMENT.

We (not me) spend more on a fancy coffee than what half of the world lives on each day. If you increase it to $10/day it’s probably 65%. I spend $10 to go 25 miles in my DP.
Another eye opener is this 5 year old video:
