BOOKS OF THE WEEK

This book contains some humor and some good advice about what not to say in various.  

What Not To Say

By Knock Knock

Stay away from awkward exchanges and consult this clever compendium for things you should never, ever say. Learn what not to say at a job interview (“How strict is your sexual-harassment policy?”), what not to say to a cat lady (“Dogs are so much friendlier!”), and what not to say to anyone else you don’t want to offend (“Don’t take this personally, but . . .”).   Source: Knock Knock

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

I don’t believe this is an actual movie, but I enjoyed the trailer so much I thought I would share it with all of you.

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

I just had to make this the music video of the week.  

If I Could Turn Back Time

By Cher

ART OF THE WEEK

Wooden Bicycle

Although these bicycles are made almost entirely of wood, they can be ridden.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON/BAND OF THE WEEK

Given the “Time” theme of this week’s post, I decided to use

Morris Day and The Time

The Time, also known as Morris Day and the Time, is an American musical group that was formed in Minneapolis in 1981. Their work has been a part of the formation of the Minneapolis sound, featuring a mix of soul music and dance music with funk, rock n roll, and more. Led by singer-songwriter Morris Day, the band members are known for having been close Prince associates, and are arguably the most successful artists who have worked with him, achieving particular popularity with R&B fans with tracks such as “Jerk Out” and “Jungle Love”. (Source: Wikipedia)

I’ve seen them perform a couple of times now and it is always an experience.  Perhaps, the video below will give you an idea of what they are like.

THIS WEEK’S JOKE

PHYSICAL TRAITS

WPC 2018 World Powerlifting Championships

The contest will be going on all this week and powerlifters from over 23 countries will be participating.  I will be raw bench pressing and deadlifting Monday, Nov. 5.

On Nov. 5, there will be one female lifter in her 70s and nine male lifters in their 70s, one of which is 80 years old.

Thus, you pay little attention to the negative moments in your life

and put your energy in the positive things instead”

  1. Thanks Bill, I liked the day light savings time video. Hilarious! I liked the wooden bikes. I like the quote give attention to the positive things. I’ve always liked that song If I Could Turn Back Time. but I wished Cher wasn’t in such a hurry to perform that. She forgot to put on her pants! How did the power lifting go? Where was it?

    • Thanks for commenting Darlene. I got the biggest kick out of the day light savings time video–it would have been a great movie. As for Cher, I guess there are just so many things to think of before going on stage, I can see how it would be easy to forget to put on your pants. Happens to me frequently 🙂 As for the powerlifting, I got lucky and a couple of guys didn’t show up so I took the WPC world raw bench press and raw deadlift for my age and weight–but no records set. Thanks for asking. The contest was in Orlando this year and will be in Finland next year. Afterwards, we spent 4 nights in South Beach
