Prime Ministers

of

Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic 

The prime ministers of Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic met Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky on Tuesday evening as a curfew began in Kyiv.

Ukraine has praised the courage of three European leaders who made a long, hazardous journey by rail from Poland to Kyiv in a show of support as the city came under further Russian attack.They are the first Western leaders to visit Ukraine since Russia invaded.

“Your visit is a powerful expression of support for Ukraine,” Mr Zelensky is quoted as telling the group.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Civility and decent behaviour seems to be missing in so many today.

George Washing listed out 110 rules in this little 30 page book. It would be nice if this book was at least briefly discussed in homes and schools.

I do think if one wishes to advance themselves in life, they would do well to study this little book.

George Washington’s

Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour

Copied out by hand as a young man aspiring to the status of Gentleman, George Washington’s 110 rules were based on a set of rules composed by French Jesuits in 1595.

The first English edition of these rules was available in Francis Hawkins’ Youths Behavior, or Decency in Conversation Amongst Men, which appeared in 1640, and it is from this work that Washington seems to have copied.

The rules as Washington wrote them out are a simplified version of the text. They had a strong influence on Washington, who aimed to always live by them.

The rules focus on self-respect and respect for others through details of etiquette. The rules offer pointers on such issues as how to dress, walk, eat in public, and address one’s superiors.

  1. Lots to inspire here! From the brave Prime Ministers to your ‘contest’, to Arnie. A great array of courage.
    Mind you; the bench-press looked much too easy for you!!! Well done!
    I’ve just recently started to ‘lift weights’. What a fascinating hobby.

  2. Bill, this post is filled with wisdom, truth, and a giggle (much needed in this world today!)! It’s a perfect combo. Thank you for sharing the video as well. I’d like to read the 110 rules from Washington’s book–very curious. My curiosity is greater than my time so it’s on my “TBR” list that keeps growing as my schedule keeps growing. Great bench press, too! I hope you and yours stay safe, healthy, and blessed!

    • Thank you Karla for your kind comments. As for Washington’s book, it is only 30 pages and mostly white space. Amazon sales a hard copy for $6.69 Also, thank you for the bench press comment. It was a bit of an unexpected surprise, I made some changes to my regular bench workout, that seems to have paid off. Always good to hear from you Karla.
