Honor Thy Temple
Folks, crash diets never work in the long-term, where small lifestyle changes will eventually pay off. You are more likely to keep the pounds off if you just lose a couple of pounds each week.
The Foundation for Being Extraordinary
Sometimes, when things are going bad we have to reexamine the decisions we have made and stop repeating those bad decisions.
Getting Along with Others
I don’t know about you folks, but my mouth has got me into so much trouble over the years. I could learn something from a cat.
Growth Keeps You Extraordinary
I suspect each day we are missing opportunities to use our creative abilities. Perhaps, if we just slowed down a bit, we would see opportunity in even the most unlikely acts and situations.
The Odds & Ends of Being Extraordinary
Bram Stoker’s Dracula
A Graphic Novel
Illustrated By Matt Pagett
I know I have mentioned this extremely easy and fun to read graphic novel before, but since it is Halloween today, I thought why not mention it again.
And if you never read a graphic novel, give it a chance.
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
They don’t make scary movies very often that are as good as the old ones. Take a look at the preview from the 1931 version of Dracula and let me know what you think.

Hedy Lamarr (born 9 November 1914 – 19 January 2000) was an Austrian and American film actress and inventor.
After an early and brief film career in Germany, which included a controversial film Ecstasy (1933), she fled from her husband, a wealthy Austrian ammunition manufacturer and secretly moved to Paris. There, she met MGM head Louis B. Mayer, who offered her a movie contract in Hollywood, where she became a film star from the late 1930s to the 1950s.
At the beginning of World War II, Lamarr and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, which used spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology to defeat the threat of jamming by the Axis powers. Though the US Navy did not adopt the technology until the 1960s, the principles of their work are now incorporated into modern Wi-Fi, CDMA and Bluetooth technology, and this work led to their being inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.
