BOOK OF THE WEEK

I’ve listened to these old radio shows so many times that I know these stories so well, but I still found this book very entertaining and readable.  If you like to read mysteries, I think you will like this book.

MOVIE OR PLAY OF THE WEEK

A nice way to start the Christmas Season is my seeing the play, “A Christmas Carol“.  But if for one reason or another you can’t, then perhaps you will want to watch one of the various “A Christmas Carol” films.  My favorite is the one starring George C. Scott. Or perhaps, you might like a more current version, such as Bill Murray’s “Scrooged”.

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

Sexual Healing

By Marvin Gaye

ART OF THE WEEK

Stonehenge

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, 2 miles (3 km) west of Amesbury. It consists of a ring of standing stones, with each standing stone around 13 feet (4.0 m) high, 7 feet (2.1 m) wide and weighing around 25 tons. The stones are set within earthworks in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.

Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC. The surrounding circular earth bank and ditch, which constitute the earliest phase of the monument, have been dated to about 3100 BC. Radiocarbon dating suggests that the first bluestones were raised between 2400 and 2200 BC, although they may have been at the site as early as 3000 BC.

Stonehenge could have been a burial ground from its earliest beginnings. Deposits containing human bone date from as early as 3000 BC, when the ditch and bank were first dug, and continued for at least another five hundred years.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

Worf

I know, I made Worf my Extraordinary Person of the Week in the past, but perhaps the following video will demonstrate why I think Worf is so extraordinary.

THIS WEEK’S JOKE

PHYSICAL TRAITS

Why Strength Training?

It’s not just to get big muscles and look buff. Your bones will get stronger, too. And it can help your balance and coordination, which means you’re less likely to fall and hurt yourself. More muscle also means you burn more calories when you’re doing nothing at all, which can help keep off extra pounds. You’ll appreciate these benefits as you get older and start to lose muscle mass.

CHARACTER TRAITS

Now that Christmas will soon be upon us, it is probably a good idea to establish a few rules.

SOCIAL TRAITS 

Looking for a gift for someone who has everything, perhaps this will help.

LEARNING TRAITS

MISCELLANEOUS 

BOOK 

Warning:  This book will not change your life, only you can do that.

  1. You mentioned procrastination. In a book About original thinking – they discuss that procrastinators generally have better results than none procrastinators. Interesting.
