How Smart is Trump Really?

Of course you will get a really wide range of opinions on that topic, just go the Trump news feed and pick out a couple of stories. The man definitely has his acolytes, people who will take the loads of crap he spouts and swallow it all day like it was chocolate covered berries. Then you have people who do not believe one word that leaves his mouth, probably because nearly every word that he ever said was demonstrably false.

One website had better prices for an Aspen rental than the others, so we rented a place from here for the month and booked our plane tickets to get there. We could have driven to Aspen, but it would have taken us a long time.

We packed all of our warm clothing for the trip. My husband bought some used ski gear from a garage sale many years ago because he thought it would come in handy one day. He does that a lot with all kinds of items and considers them good investments for the future. Continue reading
