01/03/20 – Make It So

CURRENT EVENTS

Orders from Captain Picard

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Perhaps you may want to start off the year with this book, since it is comprised of 52 steps (One a week) to take you from ordinary to extraordinary. If nothing else, it contains a fair amount of jokes and few good movie recommendations.

Of course, as I have warned each week; this book will not change your life. Only you can do that.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

I have watched this movie a number of times and I think it is excellent.

The Darjeeling Limited (2007)

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

Where Do You Go To My Lovely

By Peter Sarstedt

The song is about a fictional girl named Marie-Claire who grows up on the poverty-stricken backstreets of Naples, becomes a member of the jet set, and goes on to live in Paris. The lyrics describe her from the perspective of a childhood friend; it is left unclear whether they have remained close. The rhetorical question of the title suggests that her glamorous lifestyle might not have brought Marie-Claire happiness or contentment. (Source: Wikipedia)

ART OF THE WEEK

Sushi Socks

This may look like sushi, but it is really a package of socks.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK

Clim Seals

I first met Clim (in the white tux) when I was an accounting student at Wayne State University, where he was giving a talk on the Internal Auditing profession. Little did I know at the time that much of my corporate career (1978 to 1999), would be spent as an internal auditor.

Clim and I were the good friends and Clim had some memorable accomplishments such as being President of the Detroit Chapter of Institute of Internal Auditors. I’m sorry he is not longer with us.

  JOKE OF THE WEEK

PHYSICAL TRAITS

Notice that I did not put this under “JOKE OF THE WEEK”, because the cost of health care isn’t funny.

CHARACTER TRAITS

 

SOCIAL TRAITS

LEARNING TRAITS

So many of last year’s political arguments were hateful. Perhaps, we can all learn something from Joseph Joubert and not repeat 2020.

    • Thank you very much for letting me know. As for the plain coffee, that is just about spot on. As far that sushi, I thought it didn’t taste right, then I discovered it was socks.
