Happy New Year
BOOK OF THE WEEK
Another year is coming to an end and we are all going to be a year older, so maybe you may want to take a look at this book.
This book is very readable and talks about passive and active aging. You do not want to be a passive ager, but probably will be if you don’t exercise, have a lot of interests, be involved in lifelong learning and connect with people different than yourself.
The Gift of Years
By Joan Chittister
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
If you like A Christmas Carol, but long for something a bit different. You may want to check out this film. I watch it every year. Yes, it gets a little sappy at the end, but it is still a good message with its own share of humor.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
This song is for those of you who may have been a bit naughty during 2020 and got yourself crossed off Santa’s list of good boys and girls.
ART OF THE WEEK
I was driving around and saw this house and just had to stop to take a photo. No way does this photo do justice to the effort that went into creating this treasure, but I still want to share it with everyone.
As for me, next year, I am going to have to step up my decorating.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Above is a photo of my first supervisor and friend at the corporation that I starting working for in January 1981 and retired from in December 2009. He was a good supervisor and he was a good friend. And if anyone loved a party, it was Ed.
Ed retired in 2004 and died eight years later in 2012.
Laughter Is the Best Medicine
I think it is going to take a lot more sage.
