Day 2737: Best ideas

One of my best ideas recently has been to spend time watching the Ken Burns PBS series The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.

One of Ken Burns’s best ideas was to use “Sligo Creek” by Al Petteway and Amy White as the theme music for that series about the history of U.S. National Parks.

One of my best ideas has been to visit U.S. National Parks including Acadia, Arches, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains, Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Zion.

When I couldn’t sleep recently and couldn’t figure out why, I shared this best idea by Dr. Seuss with my husband, Michael:

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams.”

Do you see any best ideas in these recent photos?


A best idea is to drink herbal tea before bed. Also, veggie burgers are another best idea.

Another best idea is for my son Aaron (seen in this photo discussing best ideas with his mother) …

… to get tested for COVID-19 before he joins us at home on Wednesday. That photo also illustrates some best ideas of social distancing.

Please share any best ideas in the comments section below.

My best idea about ending my blog posts is to express gratitude to everyone, including YOU.

    I hope that Aaron tests negative for COVID and feels healthy. From the photo it looks like he may be working on repairing some stairs. I wonder if some of his ideas are about stair repair.

    I am making a wedding cake today. This is a multi-day process for me as it turns out wedding cakes are really really big! I think there will be 16 eggs in this one and at least 12 lemons. There’s going to be a wedding in our backyard on Wednesday and I could use lots of good ideas!

    Did you hear about that Argentinian (Juan Manuel Ballestro who traveled 85 days across the ocean alone in a 29-ft sailboat with canned tuna in order to join his father in quarantine for the pandemic? Flights had been canceled. That’s love. And that’s an idea!

    • Dear Maureen,

      The stair repair is one of many best ideas by my ex-sister-in-law, Deborah. Aaron has lots of best ideas, but I doubt whether some of them are about stair repair. Although who knows?

      I’m so glad to hear your best ideas about wedding cakes and about Juan Manuel Ballestro!

      All the best,

  9. Experience has taught me that most of my ideas aren’t that great, let alone the best. Fortunately I know people like you who do have the best ideas.

  10. My best ideas are…………….
    Idon’t have any…………………

  11. I’m glad Oscar can help you out with some of the best ideas yet.
