12/05/21 – What Variant Is This?

CURRENT EVENTS

BOOK OF THE WEEK

I have another powerlifting contest coming up Saturday, December 11. In October, I failed my third bench press and my third deadlift. This time, I will make both lifts.

As a little insurance that I make those third lifts, I thought it would be wise to study Ernie’s book again.

The Ten Commandments of Powerlifting

By Ernie Frantz

Ernie autographed his book for me

If you want to know how good this book is for powerlifting, it is one of the few powerlifting books that has been translated into Russian.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

I thought this was a very nice film.

Love Hard

Love Hard is a 2021 American romantic comedy film, about a young woman who travels to her online crush’s hometown for Christmas, but discovers she’s been catfished (Catfishing is a deceptive activity where a person creates a fictional persona or fake identity on a social networking service).

Love Hard was filmed in Vancouver from October to November 2020. The film was released by Netflix on November 5, 2021. 

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

Especially when it is 95 year-old Tony Bennett

singing with Lady Gaga

I’ve Got You Under My Skin

by Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga

ART OF THE WEEK

My Kind of Christmas Decorations

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK (Again)

As I watch America over recent years, I find it difficult to retain my faith in the future of America. However, my faith is restored when real Americans like Enes Kanter stands up for America.

I think being an American is a state of mind and not an accident of the location of one’s birth. There are many people born within the boundaries of USA that don’t appear to believe in the American Dream and there are many people all over the world who do believe in the American Dream.

  JOKE OF THE WEEK

I’ve used this before, but it still strikes me as very funny.

Perhaps, because there is some truth in it.

PHYSICAL TRAITS

I’ll Be In Another Powerlifting Contest This Saturday

It is a local Push/Pull Contest

A push/pull contest is the combination of your best bench press and best deadlift.

I’ll be in the 75 to 79 years old category, so I will be surprised if I have any competition. Usually, it has to be a national or world competition, since there aren’t that many over 75 powerlifters. My goal for this Saturday is to do better than I did last October.

CHARACTER TRAITS

SOCIAL TRAITS

The odds of you fixing a broken person is a long shot.

 

LEARNING TRAITS

MISCELLANEOUS

Proof There Is A God

There has always been people who claim there is no proof that there is a good. Finally, these people are presented with undeniable evidence of God.

Book

If you have ever been curious about this book, the Kindle version of this book has now been reduced to $1.00 and the paperback version has been reduced to $7.20 with Prime Membership

However, I must warn you that this book will not change your life, 

only you can do that.

My Final Cover

This book can be ordered from Amazon or Barnes & Nobles.

  1. I can’t believe Tony Bennett can still sing that well! Dang, amazing! Kanter is awesome. I admire his bravery for being so vocal when he’s getting so much crap. Hahahaha, the cat/God image. Cats everywhere be all chill and like, “What?”
    Good luck Saturday!
