Don’t Wait Too Long
BOOK OF THE WEEK
If you have an interest in the American Wild West, I strongly recommend this book. It is easy reading and loaded with pictures of interesting characters.
By Al Cimino
In the remote parts of the West where law and order was unheard of, a man’s best friend and main hope for salvation was his gun. It was an integral part of his life, and most men who lived and died by the gun were a breed apart. In their own time, they were generally called gunfighters — part man, part myth. (Source: Amazon)
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Ireland: County by County
I’ve been to Ireland and really enjoyed it. However, I wish I had seen this series before I made the trip.
It is hard to watch this engaging show without wanting to visit Ireland or make a return visit.
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
Soak Up The Sun
By Sheryl Crow
“Soak Up the Sun” is a song by American singer Sheryl Crow. She and her longtime co-worker Jeff Trott wrote the song following a conversation they had during a plane flight, when they discussed the changing weather as they flew to New York City from Portland, Oregon.
Crow was recovering from surgery at the time, inspiring her and Trott to write a happy song that would cheer her up.
In the song, Crow has no money to afford any luxuries or necessities, but she decides that wallowing in her sadness is not a productive activity, so she reflects on what she currently has and “puts on a happy face” that she plans to spread to others.
ART OF THE WEEK
An Artist with a Sense of Humor
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (26 April 121 – 17 March 180) was Roman emperor from 161 to 180 and a Stoic philosopher. He was the last of the rulers known as the Five Good Emperors (a term coined some 13 centuries later by Niccolò Machiavelli), and the last emperor of the Pax Romana, an age of relative peace and stability for the Roman Empire lasting from 27 BC to 180 AD.
Meditations, the writings of “the philosopher” – as contemporary biographers called Marcus – are a significant source of the modern understanding of ancient Stoic philosophy. They have been praised by fellow writers, philosophers, monarchs, and politicians centuries after his death. (Source: Wikipedia)
