Death of Chuck Berry
Today, many recording stars use all kinds of special effects to make them interesting. This guy didn’t need anything to be interesting, he was interesting.

Growth Keeps You Extraordinary
The Odds & Ends of Being Extraordinary
Don’t Give Up
by Kelly Murphy with Hallie Fryd
The publisher says, “This book compiles photos and life stories of 50 of the sexiest men and women from history and asks the essential question: Would you really want to date them?”
I would probably describe this book as 50 somewhat interesting people and as ask the essential question, would you really want to buy this book. I did and found the book somewhat interesting.
MOVIES OF THE WEEK
I’ve been assigned to Table 19 so many times, so I was eagerly looking forward to seeing this movie, especially since it stars two of my favorite actresses, Anna Kendrick and Lisa Kudrow. After seeing this film recently at the movie theater, I’m afraid I have to assign this film to table 19.
Eloise McGarry is invited to a wedding, and finds herself seated at Table 19, a table intended for guests who were only reluctantly invited … (Source: Wikipedia)
This film is in theaters now. I would call it a suspense film, not usually the type of film I would watch but it is well done and I think you will have more respect for the TSA after watching this film.
This is an extremely entertaining film and delivers a wonderful message at the end. It came out in 2000, but I think it stands the test of time.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Sorry folks, I seem to be stuck in the 50s and 60s.

ART OF THE WEEK
Since St. Patrick’s Day was last week, you probably heard mention of the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle. Well, this is what the castle looks like.
Ok, we all know Albert Einstein was a genius. But perhaps here are a couple of things you didn’t know about him. I hope they will encourage you in your own life.
Einstein Had Speech Difficulty as a Child – As a child, Einstein seldom spoke. When he did, he spoke very slowly – indeed, he tried out entire sentences in his head (or muttered them under his breath) until he got them right before he spoke aloud. According to accounts, Einstein did this until he was nine years old. Einstein’s parents were fearful that he was retarded – of course, their fear was completely unfounded!
Einstein Failed his University Entrance Exam – In 1895, at the age of 17, Albert Einstein applied for early admission into the Swiss Federal Polytechnical School. He passed the math and science sections of the entrance exam, but failed the rest (history, languages, geography, etc.)! Einstein had to go to a trade school before he retook the exam and was finally admitted to ETH a year later. (Source: Neatorama)
