CURRENT EVENTS

Pulling Into September

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Sophocles said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” 

This book is one the easier and entertaining ways that I know of to examine your life.

The 15-Minute Philosopher

By Anne Rooney

The 15-Minute Philosopher introduces the reader to the main ideas of philosophy, showing how the subject has a clear practical purpose vital to our day-to-day lives and thinking. A fun introduction to the subject of philosophy…

MOVIE, PLAY OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK

OSCARS

For many years now The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences best picture award (Oscars) seems to be more interested in political correctness than entertaining and thought provoking films.

This year the Academy has gone a step further by announcing their  new standards of representation and inclusion that will gradually be put in place for the 94th (2022) and 95th (2023) Oscars but in full effect beginning with the 96th Academy Awards in 2024.

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

I’m In A Hurry

By Alabama

My car will do 0 to 60 in 5.2

ART OF THE WEEK

Recycle Container

Even recycle containers can be art. I saw these in Machu Picchu City, Peru; back in 2017, and had to take a picture of them.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

Thanks to school lunches in the 1950s, I could not stand the thought of eating vegetables.

All that changed, once I was introduced to Birdseye vegetables. 

We can thank Clarence Birdseye for

  WEEK’S JOKE

Good thing Jesus wasn’t here in 2020

PHYSICAL TRAITS

CHARACTER TRAITS

SOCIAL TRAITS

This is an over 7 minute long video. I think entertaining, but so many have lost their sense of humor, if they ever hand one. But more important than entertaining, I think this video has a lot to say about the great American Melting Pot.

Chappelle’s Show – The Racial Draft

Uncensored

LEARNING TRAITS

This is something that should be asked of everyone making political comments.

MISCELLANEOUS

Do you really want career politicians deciding your fate, whether Democrat or Republican?
