BOOK OF THE WEEK

I first read this book in 1986 and have reviewed it a number of times over the years as well as just this past week.

It works, if you apply yourself to its teachings. However, where it speaks of wealth or money, I would suggest replacing those words with whatever you really want.

Money in my view, should be an enabler and not the end goal.

Think and Grow Rich

By Napoleon Hill

Think and Grow Rich has been called the “Granddaddy of All Motivational Literature.” It was the first book to boldly ask, “What makes a winner?” 

Think and Grow Rich, published in 1937, draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles. 

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

I thought it was an interesting film, worth watching. I do wish it had been in chronological order, since some of the flashbacks made the film a bit confusing.

 Being The Ricardos (2021)

“A revealing glimpse of the couple’s complex romantic and professional relationship, the film takes audiences into the writers’ room, onto the soundstage and behind closed doors with Ball and Arnaz during one critical production week of their groundbreaking sitcom I Love Lucy.” (Source: Wikipedia)

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

The reason I selected this song is because I was briefly watching a New Year’s Eve show from Nashville, Tennessee. There was a comedian on the show talking about how scared people are and he went on to say something like, “In Nashville, the only thing these folks are afraid of, is running out of beer.”

Ballad of Davy Crockett

By Fess Parker

ART OF THE WEEK

Every year brings the loss of friends and family members; however, every year also brings forth new friends and new family members. Stay positive.

Melancholy

It is called Melancolie. And it is heartbreakingly beautiful.

The artwork created by Albert György (living in Switzerland, but born in Romania) can be found in Geneva in a small park on the promenade (Quai du Mont Blanc) along the shore of Lake Geneva.

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK

I did some research and apparently this story is true.

But, even if it weren’t true, it should be.

  JOKE OF THE WEEK

PHYSICAL TRAITS

Clothing Choices

CHARACTER TRAITS

Some people think it is fine for people to loose their livelihood because for various reasons they don’t think a Covid shot or shots are in their best interests. 

Others think it is fine to prevent people from traveling or going into restaurants, gyms, entertainment venues, etc., unless fully vaccinated.

One can always find a reason to discriminate against any group. Perhaps, your group (aged, overweight, disabled, too many kids, etc.) may be the next group to be discriminated against and who will stand up for you?

SOCIAL TRAITS

This could help one get along better with people in 2022.

LEARNING TRAITS

It is important to stay current with technology.

MISCELLANEOUS

This Cannot Be Said Enough Times

    • Thank you for commenting Priscilla. Yes, there seems to be so little emphasis on treatment. It is hard to prevent a virus, the common cold is testmony to that. As for dividing people, the media has already done a fine job of that. It seems each version of the coronavirus is milder than the prior version, although it seems to spread more easily.

      • There is a website for the FDA Coronavirus Treatment Acceleration Program. It shows there are over 670 Covid Drugs in the planning stage; over 470 trials being reviewed by the FDA; 11 treatments authorized for emergency use; and 1 fully approved treatment.
        In Canada (and probably other countries) anti-inflammatory steroids and less use of ventilators are two treatment options that are working well. Some medical experts have said that the most significant strides have been made by figuring out what not to do.
        Mass media doesn’t cover this sort of stuff…

    • I certainly understand and appreciate your position, which is usually true. However, the fellow that played Fred was Fred from beginning to end. I’m not sure William Frawley could have been any more convincing. (smile)
