Since Saturday was Valentine’s Day, which is a celebration of romance, I thought Marriage/Life Partners would be an appropriate topic.
If you would like to know more about Valentine’s Day, check it out on Wikipedia at:
I’ve also started donating to anyone putting on a charitable fund raiser two copies of my book to auction off or raffle as a door prize. The Royal Oak Youth Assistance group and Bastone’s Brewery each accepted two copies of my book to use for their charity events. So if you know anyone that is holding a charitable fund raiser and could use a couple of copies of my book please tell them about me. I can be reached at

RESULTS OF LAST WEEK’S POLL
Well, it seems that the the vast majority of you are avid readers, so it comes as little surprise that you would take a few minutes out of your time to look at a blog about becoming extraordinary. Thank you.
THIS WEEK’S JOKE
Harry was very excited about his upcoming marriage.
As Harry was leaving the office, his boss came over to him and said, “congratulations Harry, I just wanted to tell you I’ve been married for twenty years, and I am sure that you will always remember this day as the happiest day of your life.”
Harry, “a little bit confused, said; “But sir, I’m not getting married until tomorrow!” “
“Yeah, I know”, said the boss.
WEEK 50: MARRIAGE/LIFE PARTNERS–CHOOSE A SIGNIFICANT OTHER WHO YOU CAN SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE AND WHO CAN SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE YOU
The choice of a life partner is one of the most important factors on whether you will or will not become extraordinary.
And since this post is associated with Valentine’s Day, I certain don’t wish to discourage young love, but please keep in mind that people change a lot from their teens to their mid-30s, so the best advice I can offer for youth is to at least try to grow together; otherwise, I fear you will grow apart.
By the mid-30s, you pretty much know what you are getting. If the person has financial problems, spotty work history or substance abuse problems; odds are that will continue. Of course, there are always exceptions; but nothing is so ordinary as believing you have found the exception.
Be extraordinary by finding someone you respect and encourage and who in turn will respect and encourage you..

SELF-HELP BOOKS IN ADDITION TO MY OWN
Since the focus of this week’s blog is romance, I hope some of you find the book If Love is a Game, These are the Rules helpful.
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Again, since the focus of this week’s blog posting is romance, I thought I would suggest The Princess Bride.
I recall seeing this classic film on the big screen at the fabulous Redford Theater.

Also, you will notice that the print is black instead of gray and the headings are in blue.
