Holy Crap! It's Easter! And I'm off. Not that I have any great plans for today. For eats, I'm going to be making the non-traditional ham, and cheese green bean casserole because... well, you know we all need a little ham on Easter.
Our Garden Center was busy yesterday, but otherwise the store was not so busy. Our sales are not that bad, they're just returning to what they were pre-Covid. For corporate and the stockholders, I'm sure that's not a good thing. They've already begun jacking up prices. All they care about is keeping the stockholders happy. The cost of a single share of stock is the only thing they prioritize. Trouble brews when that stock price drops and so they will screw over, and eventually sacrifice, the very consumers they depend upon.
|The Non-Traditional Dinner|
And for those of you who don't know, my religious beliefs are rather Non-Traditional, though to say I have no religion would be false. Everybody has a religion; some are traditional, and some are not. The monotheistic religions are geared towards consolidating power with either one or several individuals in charge, in case you didn't know. They are authoritarian by nature. They also offer the golden carrot of 'eternal life.' An unbelievable number of people have absolutely no clue as to how long eternity is; they think of it as a long, long time. They don't understand that a long, long time is short compared to eternity. I have a huge problem with people believing they are so special they deserve eternal life. All you need do is look how we treat each other to realize none of us is that special. My Non-Traditional desire is that I live a long time in relatively good health, with a relatively solid mind, and then pass into eternal sleep. Peace and quiet? Believe me, that's a very good way to end things.
