08/02/20 – Chef Ronaldo’s Cooking Seminar

CURRENT EVENTS

Chef Ronaldo’s Cooking Seminar

Saturday, I was fortunate to attend a cooking seminar put on by the world famous Chef Ronaldo. He taught us how to make holy water in your own home kitchen.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Since my movie of the week is Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which makes fun of Bruce Lee, I thought it only fair that I present another side to Bruce Lee. I found this book well worth reading and have reviewed my highlights and notes I made in this book a number of times.

MOVIE, PLAY OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK

I’ve seen this film three times now and I still enjoy it. However, to all you Bruce Lee fans, I apologize for making this film again my movie of the week.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019)

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

Cornershop – Brimful Of Asha (Norman Cook Remix)

Brimful of Asha” is a single by British alternative rock band Cornershop from their album When I Was Born for the 7th Time. The recording originally reached number 60 on the UK Singles Chart in 1997. After a remixed version by Norman Cook became a radio success, the song was re-released and reached number one on the UK chart and number 16 on the US Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.

This song is based on the history of film culture in India. Since their beginnings, Indian films have relied heavily on song-and-dance numbers. The singing is almost always performed by background singers while the actors and actresses lip sync. Asha Bhosle is a playback singer who has sung over 12,000 songs. (Source: Wikipedia)

ART OF THE WEEK

Most people take photos when they travel. Here are some of the most popular travel photos of 2020.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

Herman Cain

I first became aware of Herman Cain during the Republican Presidential Debates of 2012 (I also watch the Democratic debates). I didn’t know what to think of him, when I first saw him. But as time went on, I thought that I would like to vote for this guy. Unfortunately, I never got the chance.

Herman Cain (December 13, 1945 – July 30, 2020) was an American business executive and syndicated columnist.

Cain grew up in Georgia and graduated from Morehouse College with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. He then graduated with a master’s degree in computer science at Purdue University, while also working full-time for the U.S. Department of the Navy. In 1977, he joined the Pillsbury Company where he later became vice president. During the 1980s, Cain’s success as a business executive at Burger King prompted Pillsbury to appoint him as chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, in which capacity he served from 1986 to 1996.

Cain was deputy chairman, from 1992 to 1994, and then chairman until 1996, of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. From 1996 to 1999, Cain served as president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association.

In May 2011, Cain announced his 2012 presidential candidacy. By the fall, his proposed 9–9–9 tax plan and debating performances had made him a serious contender for the Republican nomination.

    • What you say may be true, but then we only have 7% saying America is not out of common sense. I’m not sure what either of these answers mean, not to mention how extremely unscientific the poll is, but I would feel better for the country if the votes were the opposite. However, when I see the media, the results came as no surprise. Regardless, thank you for sharing your perspective, I thought it was a valuable observation.

  2. Bill, something in your blog touches me every time. This time, I just found out my friend is raising Monarchs so I sent her a copy of the butterflies. I so look forward to smiling and laughing along with your blog. Thanks.
