03/21/21 – Why Did The Dinosaurs Become Extinct

CURRENT EVENTS

Why Did The Dinosaurs Become Extinct

There are many theories of why the dinosaurs became extinct, such as climate changes that impacted their supply of food. Other theories were that other animals found dinosaur eggs to be a tasty treat. Still another theory suggests their bodies became too large for their small brains. I could go on and on, with all kinds of theories, but this is the one that most appeals to me:

BOOK OF THE WEEK

I’m not sure, but I tend to classify Buddhism as a philosophy, because it does not involve worshipping a supernatural entity. But, it really does not matter what you call it; it is what it is.

I found this a very easy to read and informative book about a philosophy/religon that goes back 2,500 years ago.

Essential Buddhism

By Jacky Sach

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

If you enjoyed Outlander, and even if you didn’t; I think you will enjoy watching these two exploring Scotland.

Men In Kilts

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

I enjoyed the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood so much and when I came across this classical 1964 song that was covered in 1965 by The McCoys, I just had to use it. If you have never seen the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, I strongly recommend it.

By the way, the girl in the film clip below is Margaret Qualley, Andie MacDowell’s daughter.

Hang On Sloopy

By The McCoys

CHARACTER TRAITS

I feel bad for anyone who gives up on their dreams.

if you refuse to give up, they often come true.

SOCIAL TRAITS

I read in Austin Kleon’z book, Steal Like An Artistsomething I thought was interesting  and wanted to pass it on to you folks. It goes like this:

There’s an economic theory out there

that if you take the incomes of your five closet friends and average them,

the resulting number will be pretty close to your own income.

LEARNING TRAITS

I lot of us are guilty of saying or thinking negative things about ourselves.
