I Like Determination

Today's principle of Kwanzaa is Kujichagulia, self-determination.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race” ~Calvin Coolidge

Christmas: What's the deal with people that decorate their lawns for holidays? Holiday-themed lawn decorations are tacky almost without exception. And I'm thinking it also lowers the property value of the neighborhood. It's a lose-lose situation for everyone.
