BOOK OF THE WEEK
I thought it was an interesting and fun read; but I could not help wishing it was more about The Most Interesting Man in the World and less about Jonathan Goldsmith.
A memoir told through a series of adventures and the lessons he’s learned and wants to pass on, Stay Interesting is a truly daring and bold tale, and a manifesto about taking chances, not giving up, making courageous choices, and living a truly adventurous, and always interesting life.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
I thought this movie was very appropriate for this week, plus it is clever and entertaining.
New Year’s Eve (2011)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
I’ve checked out a number of songs for starting out the new year and for me, I can’t find one better than this to start our 2019. It has stood the test of time.
ART OF THE WEEK
I think nature is one of the best artists.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
This isn’t the first time that I have made Father Time the extraordinary person of the week, but I thought why not do it again.
Father Time is usually depicted as an elderly bearded man […], dressed in a robe and carrying a scythe and an hourglass or other timekeeping device (which represents time’s constant one-way movement).
Around New Year’s Eve, the media uses Father Time as the personification of the previous year (or “the Old Year”) who typically “hands over” the duties of time to the equally allegorical Baby New Year (or “the New Year”) or who otherwise characterizes the preceding year.
THIS WEEK’S JOKE
The beginning of the year is a good time for reflection.
Just in case you didn’t already know this.
When it is all said and done, the only thing that matters is what you have done, not what your ancestors have done.
