BOOK OF THE WEEK
Never underestimate the power of the mind. The Placebo Effect is a good example of the power of the mind.
I typically review this book before each powerlifting contest. However, this book can be applied to things outside of sports
By Gary Mack & David Casstevens
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
This week’s movie is definitely not a movie for everyone.
Pulp Fiction (1994)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Pulp Fiction Dance Scene
This French film was the inspiration for the Pulp Fiction dance scene.
In both movies, the dance scenes weren’t what was expected for these crime themed films.
Bande á Part (1964) Dance Scene
ART OF THE WEEK
This is just a park bench. It may not seem like any great piece of art. However, look closely at where this bench was made. Someone learning carpentry skills can possibly provide more value to society than many folks who are making lots of money. I will not name their positions, but unless you hold one of those positions yourself, you can probably guess which positions they are. And if you do hold one of those positions, I hope you at least know it.
If you are in a position to give these folks in this type of correctional facility program, I hope you will give them a break. It could be one of the best things you will ever do.
EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE OF THE WEEK
In Memory of Naomi Judd
(January 11, 1946 – April 30, 2022)
THE JUDDS – GIRLS NIGHT OUT
JOKE OF THE WEEK
If you liked Pulp Fiction, I think you will really like
When it comes to getting in shape, this is the only quick fix that actually works.
Please don’t fall for these quick fix scam artists. Getting into shape calls for small consistent changes that you can maintain or live with and little by little you will get where you want to be. You didn’t get where you are overnight or in 30 days, so don’t expect the change to take place overnight or in 30 days.
I suspect most of us are a bit guilty of being lazing,
even if not to this extreme.
Isn’t this the truth, when you are out dining?
You may want to ask yourself this question.
Please don’t forget the Ukraine.
If you have ever been curious about this book, the Kindle version of this book is free, and the paperback version is $10
However, I must warn you that this book will not change your life,
only you can do that.
