SAD NEWS: Christy Arboscello 

Christy y Family

It is always sad to report a death and especially when the person is so young herself and leaving behind two very young children and her husband, Angelo.  

Some of you who attended my summer happy hour parties may remember Christy and her young son Dorian.

SELF-HELP BOOKS IN ADDITION TO MY OWN

I just finished reviewing my recommended book for this week, “Victory Secrets of Attila the Hun” by Wess Roberts, Ph.D. and it is every bit the meaningful and easy to read book that it was in 2007, when I first read the book.

Although it was written in 1993, the advice it gives out stands up to the test of time in this very easy to read book.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

This week’s movie is an extraordinary film that was recommended to me by Judith, an extraordinary woman herself.  The film is called, “Validation” and it is 16 minutes long.  

I am just asking that you watch just 20 seconds of the film and let me know if you are able to stop watching it.  I honestly believe this film is a good investment of 16 minutes of your life.  

To view the film, just click on the link below.

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK 

Steve Jobs quote

LAST WEEK POLL

The vast majority of you like the new format better than when I stuck to a single trait so I will continue trying to keep the blog current and covering a number of traits that I hope will be helpful to you as well as to me.

THIS WEEK’S POLL 

THIS WEEK’S JOKE

Folks, I have been cautioned to be careful of making political jokes because they can unintentionally start arguments.  Therefore, I thought I would switch to a safer topic. 

Four truths

 

CONCLUSION

Although I mention many times that my book is available on Amazon, I should let you know that my book is also available on the Barnes & Nobles website.  Just click on:

For those of you that have supported me by purchasing a copy of my book,  please do me another favor and let others know what you thought of it at Amazon.  Currently, I have over 100 copies of my book floating around out there somewhere and I have five reviews–any chance of making it six reviews?
