In my book, I advocate Journaling, because I believe it is helpful to reflect upon your past to avoid repeating mistakes.  However, you can overdo anything, including reflection.

I just finished reading this book and I thought it has a lot of ideas if you are planning on selling, buying or even keeping your home.  I would describe it as an easy read.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

 Central Intelligence

I saw this movie last weekend and it is laugh out loud funny.  If you want some good entertainment, check this movie out.

There is also a bit of a message about a popular high school athlete (Kevin Hart) who befriends a bullied overweight teen (Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock).

In addition, during the film, the Rock discloses how he built his outstanding physique.  He said, it was simple; he just did one thing.  If you want to know what that one thing the Rock did, you are going to have to watch this wonderful movie.

ART OF THE WEEK

Pantheon in Rome

Here is a photo I took of my wife, Carol, standing in front of the Pantheon, on one of our trips to Rome.

Carol in front of Panthon

The Pantheon, is on the site of an earlier building commissioned by Marcus Agrippa during the reign of Augustus (27 BC – 14 AD). The present building was completed by the emperor Hadrian and probably dedicated about 126 AD. 

Almost two thousand years after it was built, the Pantheon’s dome is still the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome. 

It is one of the best-preserved of all Ancient Roman buildings, in large part because it has been in continuous use throughout its history. The square in front of the Pantheon is called Piazza della Rotonda. The Pantheon, in 2013 it was visited by over 6 million people. (Source: Wikipedia)

EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE

Worf

 Worf

Although Worf was raised by humans, when his parents were killed during a surprise attack by Romulans, he considered himself a Klingon at heart and studied the ways of his people. As an adult, his mannerisms and personality, as well as his innate sense of honor, became more Klingon than human.

In 2357, Worf entered Starfleet Academy. He graduated in 2361 and was commissioned with the rank of Ensign, becoming the first Klingon officer in Starfleet.  Through many brave acts and his deep sense of honor and loyalty, he rose through the ranks in Starfleet, eventually becoming Lieutenant Commander.  Later the Federation made him ambassador to the Klingon home world, Qo’noS.

    • Thank you very much Samantha and I believe you are really going to enjoy that movie. You will have to let me know what you think of it after you have had a chance to see it. Also, you are going to have to watch/listen carefully for the one thing the Rock did to get in great shape. After he tells his friend, he says, “Hey, just one thing isn’t so hard, is it?” 🙂
