From our home to yours, Tim and I hope you have a wonderful week. Please stay safe and weather-aware today!
When Tim and I attended church last weekend, Capitol Hill Methodist Church provided a history lesson as a method of respect to our Jewish friends. Sukkahs (tents) also carry a metaphorical meaning that dwellings on earth are not permanent. It was a good service. #Wadsworth
While in DC earlier this week, Tim and I attended a seminar at Georgetown University entitled, “Bread, Politics, and Development,” which focused on the role of government subsidized bread in society. In Jordan and Egypt, approximately 70% of residents receive bread subsidies. That is a lot of folks. (I asked if there was social mobility within these countries, or are the residents just “stuck” dependent on subsidized bread to survive - hoping students in the room would understand the connection￼). Could you imagine having to wait in a line wrapped around a building for basic nourishment? While Egypt is technically considered a former socialist state, it is still haunted by its ghosts. Socialism does not work. Capitalism works. Thank you to the current and visiting professors at Georgetown for coordinating this insightful experience. #Wadsworth

Yesterday Tim and I attended a seminar in DC at The Heritage Foundation entitled, “The Diminished State of Today’s Military” in which Congressman Mike Gallagher spoke about problems armed servicemen and servicewomen face today and strategies to build our nation’s defense moving forward. Thank you, Scott Zipperle, a University of Alabama graduate, for touring us today. #Our67 #USA #Wadsworth
Tim and I love October weather. Taken at the Edridge Bicentennial celebration this month (1822-2022). Eldridge is the oldest community in Walker County. #Our67 #Wadsworth

On Friday 7 October 2022 the Taiwanese delegation hosted a reception in Atlanta to celebrate National Day. Thank you to Billy Chung from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Atlanta for the invitation. Taiwan's government will celebrate their country's 111th National Day on 10 October. It was good to have conversations with delegates, representatives, and friends from the southeastern United States. Taiwan is an important trade partner in the semiconductor supply chain. Supporting Taiwan is important for United States as well as global security. #Our67 #Wadsworth

On Saturday afternoon Tim and I attended The Frog Festival in Sumiton. Weather was beautiful for this free, family-friendly event with hundreds of vendors and community-minded organizations. #Our67 #Wadsworth
On Saturday 1 October 2022, the Town of Eldridge, the oldest community in Walker County, celebrated its Bicentennial. Thank you to all who coordinated Eldridge Heritage Days. Tim and I enjoyed participating in this special occasion with you. #Our67 #Wadsworth
