People left flowers, candles and other tributes in Nice, France, on Saturday in memory of those killed in Thursday’s terror attack in the coastal city.
I thought last week called for an inspirational quote, which would serve all of us well, not just for today, but for every day.
Honor Thy Temple
Portion control is important in maintaining an appropriate weight, please don’t let what happened to David, happen to you.
The Foundation for Being Extraordinary
Getting Along with Others
Growth Keeps You Extraordinary
In Chapter 41 of my book, I talk about the importance of analyzing your day in a journal and looking back a year later at what you wrote. Very few do this, but if you wish to be extraordinary, you will adopt the practice.
“Those who cannot remember the past
are condemned to repeat it.”
The Odds & Ends of Being Extraordinary
Code of the Samurai
Translated by Thomas Cleary
This easy to read book provides some excellent rules to live by, which are still relevant today. I’ve read and reviewed it many times of the years and it never fails to inspire me.
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
I’ve watched two seasons of this Starz TV series and most of it has been good to very good, now that they have left their sadism behind. For a while, I could not stand to watch some of it and had to fast forwarded through the sadistic crap, but the show got back on track was excellent.
Outlander is a British-American television drama series based on the historical time travel Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon.
The show premiered on August 9, 2014. It stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married World War II nurse in 1945 who finds herself transported back to Scotland in 1743, where she encounters the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite risings.
The second season, consisting of 13 episodes and based on Dragonfly in Amber, premiered on April 9, 2016.
On June 1, 2016, Starz renewed the series for a third and fourth season, which will adapt the third and fourth Outlander novels, Voyager and Drums of Autumn.
