PLEASE CONSIDER COMMENTING
My thanks to Carol and Samantha for commenting on last week’s post. For the rest of you looking at this blog, please consider leaving a comment. It would be interesting to me and everyone to know what you think about the various items in this week’s post.
Honor Thy Temple
Having trouble controlling your diet or following your exercise program, well today is the start of a new week.
The Foundation for Being Extraordinary
In chapter 17 of my book I talk about the importance of being honest. Below is an example of honesty.
Getting Along with Others
Try very hard to never pass up the opportunity to get together with family and friends. They will not always be there, when you finally get around to making time for them. Here is a “Cousins Dinner” last Friday that I was fortunate to get to attend as a spouse of a cousin. I am no relatives of my own, that I know of so I don’t take such events for granted.
Growth Keeps You Extraordinary
As you can see, I have developed my woodworking skills and I am making use of those skills.
No doubt you too have skills you can develop and use.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
I’ve watched two seasons of this 9 season murder mystery series and it seems to get better with each passing episode, bringing in all sorts of famous people for that era, such as Arthur Conan Doyle, Buffalo Bill, Harry Houdini and H.G. Wells, just to name a few.
In Victorian-era Toronto, Inspector William Murdoch uses unconventional scientific methods to crack complex murder cases.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Sorry folks for this week’s selection, but I just could not resist.
