… excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism.
Oprah Winfrey (b. 1954), African American television personality and actress. As quoted in I Dream a World, by Brian Lanker (1989).
Born in Mississippi, she became the first African American woman to host a nationally syndicated weekday television talk show and the first to found her own television and film production company. She was also among the few to be nominated for an Academy Award (for Best Supporting Actress in The Color Purple ).
Since I’ve already posted a blog entry today. I need do provide you with an additional entry.
It was a great ride in this morning. Like I’ve said on the other (less quality) social networks. A big ole pile of Awesome is happening in the 681V1.
Thanks to friends like you.
I got to make a poster at work today. Working real hard round these parts.
Today is my long day. Work, meeting, but it is what I do.
Tomorrow is the last day of work for the week. Who’s excited for that?
Well that’s it for now.
Good Morning & Happy Tuesday,
10 toes, 10 fingers, smile and a laugh.
Today is Tuesday 10/08/V3.4 & Vernon J is ready to go.
I’ve got everything I need to get my day started.
The word of the day is tittup which is an exaggerated prancing, bouncing movement or manner of moving. I like this tittup!!!
One of today’s reading from the bible is Psalm 103:1-5
1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Just read on that for a little while.
