The Obesity Epidemic
Even a statute isn’t immune to this epidemic.
BOOK OF THE WEEK
The Emperor’s Handbook
By Marcus Aurelius
Translated by C. Scot Hicks and David V. Hicks
If you wish to become more than you are, I suggest you read this book or other versions of his meditations. Not so much because it provides new wisdom, but because it reminds us of what we should strive to be like.
Marcus Aurelius ruled the Roman Empire at its height, yet he remained untainted by the incalculable wealth and absolute power that had corrupted many of his predecessors. Marcus knew the secret of how to live the good life amid trying and often catastrophic circumstances, of how to find happiness and peace when surrounded by misery and turmoil, and of how to choose the harder right over the easier wrong without apparent regard for self-interest.

MOVIE, PLAY OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK
CNN’s The Windsors: Inside the Royal Dynasty
So far I have seen three episodes of this six-part series and I think it is very good. I learned some new things about the British Royal Family, such as how they came to be known as the Windsors.
If you like Jane Austin stories, I think you might like this one, which I just saw.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Watch the beginning of this video to see what Rock ‘n Roll was up against
in the early days.
ART OF THE WEEK
The Creation of Adam
Ceiling of the Sistine Chapel
It has been years since I looked up at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, but this is what I remember seeing.
But people tell me that I am mistaken, that this is what I must have seen.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Here is his mug shot, when he was doing hard time.
He was a pretty tough customer, but we adopted him anyways.
Last week made ten-years that he has been with us, so we through him a party and invited some of his friends to the party.
I guess they all had a good time, because a friend of mine said that they all looked stuffed.
