On False Beliefs, False Anything :

From Cosmos

Episode - "Unafraid of the Dark" (2014)

1. Question authority.
   -- No idea is true just because someone says so.

2. Think for yourself.
   -- Question yourself.

3. Don't believe anything, just because you want to.
   -- Believing something doesn't make it so.

4. Test ideas by the evidence gained
   -- from observation and experiment.
   -- If a favorite idea fails a well-designed test,
       it's wrong! Get over it.
   -- Follow the evidence, wherever it leads.
   -- If you have no evidence, reserve judgment.

5. Most important rule - you could be wrong.

Favorite Websites

NEWS ALTERNATIVES

Bing News - limey stuff - British all the way!
SOLVED - I must click on U.S. They NEVER told me that, and I never noticed. Then, I must click "West". Every time apparently, or they revert back to "All Limey".
No more Limey stuff for me (except for The Guardian - they lack the haughtiness of other UK sites).

During the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, Mom used to play these songs on the piano at 3345 Mentone Ave., Palms CA 90034.

Boogie-Woogie - Liberace

Bumble Boogie - (from Rimsky-Korsakov)

Jack Fina - Liberace

Maple Leaf Rag - Jo Ann Castle

Prelude in C# Minor - Rachmaninoff - take your pick

My Advice to All
Keep A Positive Outlook!
Attitude makes a big difference.
Do not allow others to bring you down.

We can't change the world,
but we CAN change ourselves.
You can be positive from now on.
