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