BOOK OF THE WEEK

This is a long book, but if you are as interested in the life of Alexander the Great as I am, then this book is a good choice.

Alexander the Great (2019)

By Anthony Everitt

“Reads as easily as a novel . . . Nearly unparalleled insight into the period and the man make this a story for everyone.” (Source: Kirkus Reviews)

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

I finished Season Three of this seven season series and look forward to watching a few episodes every evening.. 

Parks and Recreation

If you are wondering why I like this show so much, here is one reason:

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

August 16, 1977

ART OF THE WEEK

Art From Peru’s Man-Made Floating Islands In Lake Titicaca

I bought this hanging decoration in 2017 from one of the Indians on the floating islands.

They, like everyone I saw in Peru; absolutely refused to accept handouts. They want you to buy something from them, not give them something for nothing.

This is a character trait that many in the USA need to adopt. And for all you folks with Big Hearts, please consider giving people a hand and not a handout. 

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON  OF THE WEEK

Olivia Newton-John

In 1978

Dame Olivia Newton-John (26 September 1948 – 8 August 2022) was a British-Australian singer, actress and activist. She was a four-time Grammy Award winner whose music career included five number one hits and another ten Top Ten hits and 14 of her albums (including two Platinum and four 2× Platinum) have been certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

With global sales of more than 100 million records, Newton-John is one of the best-selling music artists from the second half of the 20th century to the present. (Source: Wikipedia)

JOKE OF THE WEEK

Typical Cat

But I love them anyway.

PHYSICAL TRAITS

Even a little exercise, pays huge dividends.

If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.

CHARACTER TRAITS

Every day is another chance to be a better person.

SOCIAL TRAITS

As long as someone isn’t hurting others,

perhaps we should allow them to live as they wish.

LEARNING TRAITS

MISCELLANEOUS

What are you putting off?

Book

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.

My Final Cover
