BOOK OF THE WEEK (LIBRO DE LA SEMANA)
I know most of you aren’t into powerlifting, but there are also a lot of good health and life tips in Ernie’s book.
Ernie Frantz’s Ten Commandments
by Ernie Frantz
And here is a photo of Ernie signing a copy of his book for me.
MOVIES OF THE WEEK (PELÍCULAS DE LA SEMANA)
Jesus Christ Superstar
I recently saw this play again and enjoyed it even more. I realize that most of you don’t live in the Royal Oak, MI, USA area where I live, but I am guessing that you probably don’t live that far from live theater. If you haven’t already done so, you should check out the plays happening in your area.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK (MÚSICA DE LA SEMANA)
It is easy for me to be stuck in the 50s; here is a song my younger friend Samantha posted on her blog last week.

Wonder why I’m stuck in the 50s, well just take a quick look
Long Tall Sally
By Little Richard
I was fortunate to see Little Richard twice, once when we were both very young and again when we were both very old.

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
(PERSONA EXTRAORDINARIA DE LA SEMANA)
Isabella I (22 April 1451 – 26 November 1504) was Queen of Castile. She was married to Ferdinand II of Aragon. Their marriage became the basis for the political unification of Spain under their grandson, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.
After a struggle to claim her right to the throne, she reorganized the governmental system, brought the crime rate to the lowest it had been in years, and unburdened the kingdom of the enormous debt her brother had left behind. Her reforms and those she made with her husband had an influence that extended well beyond the borders of their united kingdoms.
Isabella and Ferdinand are known for completing the Reconquista, ordering conversion or exile of their Muslim and Jewish subjects in the Spanish Inquisition, and for supporting and financing Christopher Columbus’ 1492 voyage that led to the opening of the New World and to the establishment of Spain as the first global power which dominated Europe and much of the world for more than a century.
Isabella was granted the title Servant of God by the Catholic Church in 1974. (Source: Wikipedia)
