I’m not a fan of deer hunting and enjoy seeing them in my backyard.
But in the interest of fairness, there are some valid reasons for deer hunting, such as helping the environment because a higher deer population can impact the reproduction, growth, and survival of different plants that have both economic and ecological value. Hunting also helps to maintain deer population levels compatible with available habitat.
BOOK OF THE WEEK
This book is about a lot more than just running.
Running & Being
By Dr. George Sheehan
Here are a few examples of what you will find in this book:
The clock makes every hour just an hour. The artist, especially the poet, has always known this to be wrong.
Study the lives of those who sought . . . the meaning of the cosmos. . . . The common denominator of these people is asceticism, which comes from the Greek ascesis, meaning rigorous training, self-discipline and self-restraint.
Picasso. When asked, “What is art?” he replied, “What is not?”
I hope from the above, you get the point that this book is about far more than just running.
MOVIES OF THE WEEK
I normally don’t care for musicals, but you may want to give this one a chance. I almost stopped watching after the first few minutes, but glad I stayed with it.

EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
Although she was in a number of terrible films, as well as some excellent films, I like her because her criterion for deciding to be in a film was whether or not some of her friends were also involved in that particular film.
She said that the reason she quit films was because she wanted to quit them, before films quit her.
Plus, she is an animal rights activist.
Brigitte Anne-Marie Bardot (born 28 September 1934), is a former French actress, singer and model.
Although she withdrew from the entertainment industry in 1973, she remains a major popular culture icon.
Born and raised in Paris, she started her acting career in 1952. She achieved international recognition in 1957 for her role in And God Created Woman (1956), and also caught the attention of French intellectuals. She was the subject of Simone de Beauvoir’s 1959 essay The Lolita Syndrome, which described her as a “locomotive of women’s history” and built upon existentialist themes to declare her the first and most liberated woman of post-war France.
She acted in 47 films, performed in several musicals, and recorded more than 60 songs.
Los Angeles Times Magazine ranked her second on the “50 Most Beautiful Women In Film”. (Source: Wikipedia)
JOKE OF THE WEEK
The years take their toll on everyone, but that is still no excuse to let yourself go.
World Famous Chef Ronaldo is more than just the best chef in the world.
He is also a philosopher.
Years ago, I was a gas station attendant. Now, most everyone has to pump their own gas.
I recall a comedian saying, he came into a store as a customer and was hoping to leave as one, but instead now he is a team member.
