In the next few weeks I will be asking for assistance. Not for me, but for others-to help others. I have friends who are organizing a dart tournament for Operation Homefront, others who are attempting to better themselves by accomplishing some physical goals (in the Nike Woman’s Race)-while raising monies for kids/villages in Africa, and OUR ARMY/NAVY game group is starting to organize for this years event on December 11th. Wherever your interests, heart, and wallet guide you, please consider assisting some of the groups that need YOUR assistance, even if it is someone NOT associated with my groups-JUST DO SOMETHIING FOR SOMEONE!!!

Greetings from the home office in Dublin, Ohio. This is the first of 2 weeks I will be here in Central Ohio. I really have no clue what to do. I EVEN HAVE FRIDAY OFF!!! I don’t have much to say. This time of year is always a blah time of the summer for me. Even with the warm days and enjoyable nights, it is just blah. However the storms that this type of weather brings…provide one of my favorite smells in the world-that smell after a hard rain. Ya know I travel a lot, rock many a crowd…but it is still the small things in life; the “I saw God today moments: that I enjoy more than anything else.

This week, with the exception of Soccer, WNBA, and Lacrosse…most sports had the majority of the week off (even NASCAR is on an off week). Locally we have no big concerts coming, and not very many major events scheduled (with the exception of above). So there is not much to chat about, and even less going on with me. I guess I will just say have, and give hope. Not in the Obama campaign kinda way (BTW how’s that working for you?), but in the truest sense of the word.

NOT EVERYTHING WE WANT COMES WHEN WE WANT. But we all need to have HOPE that what we NEED will come about, at sometime. This “time” may not be on our own watch, but, on a timeline of a Greater Power’s calendar. This HOPE; with the assistance of hard work, patience, help from others, divine influence, or just plain dumb luck can come true. BUT NO MATTER HOW YOU GET IT…you need hope. Better yet, how about we all encourage each other and give HOPE to someone else?

I truly believe that there needs to be a hierarchy of success. This may sound cruel but we all MUST WORK to our own potential, but, sometimes, there are others who’s potential is greater than our own, and MANY who don’t live up to their own potential.

There are areas of life, jobs, and levels of success that we all can/cannot achieve. We all cannot be “rocket scientists,” but, this does not mean that we cannot try. Sometimes the success is in the hard work and determination from attempting to achieve a goal. SOMETIMES success can be found in giving someone else HOPE to achieve their dreams. We all cannot always accomplish our dreams, but WE ALL CAN try, and more importantly MUST encourage others to do the same. While we all may not make all of our dreams come true…we all can (and sometimes do) ruin someone else’s’ dream.

WE ALL need to achieve our own level of success, and while working hard for more…enjoy wherever we are. While fighting for our own success, we must assist, and encourage others to do the same. WITH THAT SAID…do not do the work for them, but encourage and give HOPE.

If someone does not work to their potential…then I don’t want to hear them b**ch moan or complain. We all have abilities and even when someone has more than others…determination can offset those abilities. All the HOPE in the world cannot make up for the inability to TRY!!!

If you don’t do your best, one of my favorite lines from any movie comes to mind; “Well Danny, the world needs ditch diggers too.”-Caddy Shack

Be a dream maker, be HOPE, work hard, find your own success, be a ditch digger-whatever, TRY to be your best!

THOUGHT(S) FOR WEEK:
(stolen from a friends facebook page) Today, we understand that motivation — and therefore engagement — comes from loving what you do. You love what you do when you are in the right job, feel valued and are given opportunities to grow. Get your people to love what they do, and they are yours — fully engaged.
~Terri Kabachnick

Re-phrased by my buddy, Jimmy Buffett;

“Take pride in what it is you do for a living…that is the best way to a job that sucks less…”

And one to ponder…
“…..if we know the S**T is about ready to “hit the fan!” why don’t we just turn the fan off first? Then at least it is containable”. doc

I was reminded of a valuable lesson by a VERY unlikely source last weekend. I work with a WIDE range of people. Some are great, and encouraging…some are pessimistic and hard to work with. A person who fills the latter description reminded me of a great lesson. When attempting to find a positive spin on some difficulties of a weekend gig, I made statement “…no matter what every weekend is a learning experience.” I was redirected with “EVERYDAY is a learning experience.” This was a great reminder, AND EVEN MORE SO when from an unlikely source.

SONG FOR THE WEEK:
What anyone see’s, what some want, what some need, and what some cannot see…all that, all this, and more. I’m a little more country than that!

DROID:
I need a new app for my cardio routine (as limited as it may be); I want to track my progress. I have tried “run tracker,” and currently using “cardio trainer;” neither seem to map my GPS progress. Any thoughts/suggestions?

HELP:
STILL NEED HELP! Does anyone know how to find “missing” I-tunes I have purchased? They are not in folders, and I-tunes says I have purchased, yet cannot locate? Any ideers?

PASSING:
George Steinbrenner
Steinbrenner kept ties to Columbus
The Columbus Dispatch
People called to share stories yesterday after the news spread that George Steinbrenner had died of a massive heart attack.

Encounters with Steinbrenner in Columbus stretched back more than half a century and long before he became a near-mythic character as the owner of the New York Yankees.

“I met him when he was stationed at Lockbourne Air Force Base,” Vince Chickerella said. “He became a volunteer coach at Linden-McKinley High School. Who does that? He worked with the football team in 1953.”

Chickerella, a longtime college and high-school basketball coach in central Ohio, was an assistant football coach with the Panthers when Steinbrenner volunteered his services.

“George scouted Central for us before we played them in the City League championship,” Chickerella said. “He helped put us in the ‘umbrella’ defense. We won the game 7-6. I never dreamed then he would do what he did. But George was a confident individual even back then.”

Steinbrenner stayed in the area for a few years. He earned a master’s degree in physical education at Ohio State and served as a graduate assistant for Woody Hayes in ’54.

He met and married his wife, Joan Zieg, in Columbus and also coached basketball at Thomas Aquinas High School for two years before ultimately moving into the business world. He never cut his ties with the city.

In 1979, Steinbrenner began a 28-year association between the Yankees and the triple-A Clippers. He brought an aggressive, winning style with him. In the first three seasons of the association, the Clippers won the International League pennant and Governors’ Cup championship.

He also began a tradition of coming to Columbus to celebrate his July 4 birthday with family at Cooper Stadium.

“He’d show up at the ballpark, and word would get around to the players pretty quickly that he was here,” said Wayne Harer, a former Columbus player. “Everybody would take notice and probably have an extra spring in his step. He ran a pretty tight ship.”

Steinbrenner’s ship was run more tightly than the country’s. He brooked no mustaches, beards, sideburns or long hair in his minor-league teams. The uniform also had to be worn in a certain way.

“You had to have 3 inches of your stirrups showing,” said Stump Merrill, who managed both the Clippers and the Yankees for Steinbrenner. “The way guys wear their pants now looks like pajamas.

“He wanted players to understand the importance of discipline and of adhering to team policy. Discipline is one of the keys to success.”

Marshall Brant, the most valuable player in the IL in 1980, remembered how Columbus manager Frank Verdi delivered the news of an impending Steinbrenner visit.

“He’d let us know that the big man was coming to town,” Brant said. “He’d say, ‘You know I don’t check sideburns or length of hair. You all know the rules. If it gets down to me, the (expletive) is going to flow downhill.'”

Randy Mobley, now the president of the International League, was an intern in the Clippers’ front office in 1980.

“When he came in for the Fourth of July, I would be assigned to make sure Mr. Steinbrenner got to wherever he wanted to be,” Mobley said. “I had to make sure that nobody bothered him.”

Yet, sometimes the script changed. John Mercurio, a student at Aquinas when Steinbrenner coached basketball there, attended a Clippers game with a friend of the now-famous owner. Those two connected.

“He brought Whitey Ford down with him to where we were, and they sat and talked with us for half the ballgame,” Mercurio recalled.

In 2000, Steinbrenner donated $1.5million to build the band center inside Ohio Stadium.

“Columbus was important to him because of his family, Ohio State and the whole nine yards,” Merrill said. “He paid close attention to what was going on.”

Chickerella remembered that Steinbrenner developed a friendship with a Linden-McKinley student named John LaCorte in 1953.

“He died about five years ago,” Chickerella said. “Not only were there flowers there from George. There were flowers from the New York Yankees.”

JUST FOR FUN:
Earworm may also refer to the Helicoverpa zea (corn earworm) or the musician DJ Earworm. Not to be confused with the creature depicted in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Earworm, a loan translation of the German Ohrwurm,[1] is a portion of a song or other music that repeats compulsively within one’s mind, put colloquially as “music being stuck in one’s head.” Use of the English translation was popularized by James Kellaris, a marketing researcher at the University of Cincinnati, and Daniel Levitin. Kellaris’ studies demonstrated that different people have varying susceptibilities to earworms, but that almost everybody has been afflicted with one at some time or another.[2] The psychoanalyst Theodor Reik used the term haunting melody to describe the psychodynamic features of the phenomenon.[3] The term Musical Imagery Reptition (MIR) was suggested by neuroscientist and pianist Sean Bennett in 2003 in a scientifically researched profile of the phenomenon.[4] Another scientific term for the phenomenon, involuntary musical imagery, or INMI, was suggested by the neurologist Oliver Sacks in 2007.[5]

Wanted Words, a feature on CBC Radio One’s This Morning hosted by Jane Farrow, also once asked listeners to invent a word for this phenomenon. Submitted entries included “aneurhythm” and “humbug.”[6] The Official Earworm Synonym List includes alternative terms such as “music meme”, “humsickness” , “repetunitis”, “obsessive musical thought” and “tune wedgy.”[7]

People with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are more likely to report being troubled by ear worms – in some cases, medications for OCD can minimize the effects.[8]

Earworms should not be confused with endomusia or musical hallucinations[9], a serious affliction, through which a sufferer actually hears music that is not playing externally.

Earworms are a feature of the Shaun Keaveny Breakfast Show on BBC 6 Music, when listeners are asked to phone in with tunes that are stuck in their heads when they wake up

ENTERTAINMENT:
Paul the Oracle Octopus goes eight for eight, is amazing

Eight picks, eight correct, eight tentacles. Paul the Oracle Octopus is clearly the biggest winner of the World Cup after recording a perfect prognostication record whether he knows it or not (he probably doesn’t).
The big question was whether Paul’s predictive superpowers would translate to the final – the first match he was asked to predict that did not involve his native Germany. But such piddly concerns did not bother Paul. Mostly because he’s an octopus. Just as he predicted, the European champions Spain became world champions for the first time with an Andres Iniesta goal in extra time. And as the Spanish celebrated, Paul floated in his tank, sure of his genius and probably craving a fresh clam.

Since Paul is an international celebrity of the highest order now, everyone wants a piece of him – both literally and figuratively. Italy is trying to claim that he was caught in Italian waters, Spanish businessmen are trying to buy him for €30,000 ($38,000), and Dutch priests tried to dismiss him.
But in Spain, Paul is an icon. The Spanish prime minister has already spoken of his desire to protect “Pulpo Paul” and the mock up of a new version of Spain’s flag could be dangerously close to becoming real.

So what becomes of Paul now? Well, he’ll probably continue to live out the remainder of his days at the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany, no longer forced to pick his food out of flag-covered boxes while surrounded by an obscene number of media types. He will swim at his leisure and continue to be oblivious to the existence of sports. He will retire a winner and a global sensation – what every other octopus (and even a few pundits) wishes they could be.
All hail Paul.

Jon Bon Jovi injures leg at New Jersey concert
New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi didn’t even need “Something For The Pain” to finish a concert in his home state, despite tearing a calf muscletoward the end of the show.

Bon Jovi injured himself toward the end of the band’s 2 1/2-hour concert at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford on Friday night, then limped back and forth across the stage for an encore, “Livin’ On A Prayer.”

The singer, who grew up in Sayreville, N.J., injured his leg during a cover of the Dave Clark Five hit “Glad All Over.” About halfway through the song, he leaned heavily on his microphone stand to support his injured leg.

“My calf muscle just blew out! Whoa!,” he said from the stage. “I got another leg. I don’t need this one.”

A video posted on YouTube shows the 48-year-old singer limping back and forth across the stage, flexing his foot as he assures the crowd he’s OK.

“Don’t you worry, folks,” he said. “I ain’t got nowhere to go. I’m old. What can I tell you? But I’m still good-lookin’!”

After taking a final bow at the front of the stage with fellow band members, Bon Jovi hobbled off with the help of keyboard player David Bryan, who wrapped his arm around Bon Jovi’s back.

A spokeswoman says the band will be able to play the rest of its summer stadium tour and does not anticipate canceling any dates.

The band was to play the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, on Monday night.
Friday night’s concert was Bon Jovi’s fourth at the New Meadowlands Stadium. The band played the first concert there in May.

POLITICS:

Majority of Americans lack faith in Obama: poll

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Nearly 60 percent of American voters say they lack faith in President Barack Obama, according to a public opinion poll published on Tuesday.

The results of the Washington Post/ABC News poll are a reversal of what voters said at the start of Obama’s presidency 18 months ago when about 60 percent expressed confidence in his decision making.

Confidence in Obama is at a new low but the poll found that his numbers are still higher than lawmakers of either major party four months ahead of the November congressional elections.

Asked how much confidence they have in Obama to make the right decisions for the country’s future, 58 percent of respondents said “just some” or “none.”

Sixty-eight percent expressed the same sentiments about Democrats in Congress and 72 percent said the same of Republicans.

The Post said problems in the housing industry, sluggish job growth and other economic issues may have taken a toll on Obama’s approval rating.
Just 43 percent of all Americans, including a third of Democrats, now say they approve of the job Obama is doing on the economy, while 54 percent disapprove.

The survey also found wide anti-incumbent sentiment with 62 percent of voters saying they were not inclined to support their current representative.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for grabs in the November 2 election as well as 36 of the 100 Senate seats.
Democrats now control both houses of Congress, but a slight majority of those polled said they would prefer to have Republicans in control to serve as a check on Obama’s policies.

The poll of 1,288 people was conducted July 7-11 and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

AND recently we found out the White House is more concerned about “it’s” reputation and how the “ego” is handled by an “Entertainment” magazine, now we find out why “OUR” President was allowed to publicly invite Former Cleveland Superstar, LeBron James to his hometown of Chicago.

Today, the Advertising Age provides a bit more of the back story as to how “The Decision” got off the ground. One oddly fitting detail: Hollywood super-agent Ari Emanuel — brother of White House chief of staff Rahm, basis for Entourage’s Ari Gold — was involved in the project since the onset of the NBA Finals, prior to James formally entering the free-agent market.

The PR and marketing campaign for LeBron has been considered a HUGE failure compared to The “Dan vs. Dan” Olympic Campaign; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKJkfE1M9wA where both did not make it to the Olympics, and other blunders. I guess only fitting since the current White House is also be compared to another failed term…that of Jimmy Carter!

Vince & Larry. They don’t need last names, WE ALL know them as the GM Crash Test Dummies. These two became National Icons. I know who they are, and think I have picture with them somewhere from when I was a kid, but I STILL REFUSE to wear my seatbelt until I get pulled over. I feel this is another form of over government.

Crash dummies Vince and Larry become museum pieces

WASHINGTON – The crash-test dummies who promoted auto safety for 25 years in public service TV ads are headed to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is donating auto safety objects to the museum Wednesday, along with General Motors and Volvo.
The collection includes several costumes and “severed limbs” from Vince and Larry, the famous crash-test dummies. Their popularity inspired toy lines, cartoons and even a video game.

The donation also includes a real GM crash-test dummy, a three-point safety belt from a 1961 Volvo and an energy-absorbing steering column from a 1967 Chevrolet.

WHAT THE HE**?
I am PROUD TO BE PART OF THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT. AND it has NOTHING to do with the color of the person in the White House

NAACP To Offer Resolution Condemning Racist Elements Of Tea Party Movement

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is prepared to offer a resolution that condemns racism the group believes to be coming from the Tea Party movement, the Kansas City Star reports.

The measure — which is expected to receive a vote this week by NAACP delegates at the organization’s annual convention in Kansas City, Mo. — requests “all people of good will to repudiate the racism of the Tea Parties, and to stand in opposition to its drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.”

Anita Russell, who heads the Kansas City NAACP local chapter, indicated to the Star that she’s “pretty certain” the resolution will be approved.

Tea Party conservatives have struggled to combat charges of racism. A Washington Post-ABC News poll released back in May suggested that 28 percent of Americans see racial prejudice as an underlying element of the movement.

Brendan Steinhauser, who serves as director of campaigns for the conservative coordinating group FreedomWorks, told the K.C. Star: “I just don’t see racism in the tea party movement.” He added, “Racism is something we’re absolutely opposed to.”

SPORTS:
Erin Andrews Joins GameDay: What Else Does the Future Hold for Season 10’s ‘DWTS’ Cast?

After increasing her public visibility and realm of admirers with an impressive third place on the last season of “Dancing With the Stars,” Erin Andrews returns to the world of sports broadcasting by joining the expanded “College GameDay” football show.

ESPN’s “College GameDay” enters its 24th season this year, continuing to broadcast on-site analysis and sidelines coverage at campuses hosting major football games. Andrews will host a new segment for the program, as well as serve as a sidelines reporter.

The expansion of her on-air responsibilities was the main factor influencing Andrews to renew her contract with ESPN/ABC. “The biggest reason I wanted to stay was because they’d expand my role,” Andrews admitted. “It’s time for me to try new things. … The hosting stuff is what I’m really looking forward to.”

Andrews will also be popping up regularly on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” where she will cover some “fun and light-hearted” stories but also some more serious ones, especially in light of her harrowing experience as a victim of stalking in 2009. “With what I’ve been through, I want to talk to women who are victims,” Andrews said. “We feel it’s important to start off with serious issues so people take me seriously.”

Career opportunities are looking bright for Season 10 “DWTS” winner Nicole Scherzinger as well. The Pussycat Dolls lead singer is filling in for pregnant Dannii Minogue (yup, Kylie’s sister) on an upcoming auditions episode of Britain’s “X Factor.” But judging on “X Factor” might not be a one-time gig for the pop singer. A source tells Radar if Scherzinger’s judging skills are as adept as her dance moves, she could have an “inside track” to a permanent judging gig when creator/judgeSimon Cowell brings “X Factor” to the U.S. in 2011. In other words, Nicole Scherzinger could be the next Paula Abdul if “Factor” replaces “American Idol” as TV’s most popular singing competition show.

As for last season’s least adept, but most talked-about dancer, Kate Gosselin is planning a big return to reality TV as well. Her new show “Twist of Kate” premieres on TLC this fall and finds the reality matriarch visiting with women who have written to her to tell her how inspiring they find her story.

“I just want to be out there learning from others, helping to provide insight whenever I can,” Gosselin said, making sure to add, “I don’t consider myself an expert or anything.” Mama Gosselin can currently be seen on “Kate Plus 8,” a series of TLC specials airing sporadically throughout the summer.

Fourth-place “DWTS” finisher Chad Ochocinco returned to reality TV last night with a judging gig of his own, in a manner of speaking. The Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver is the subject of VH1’s latest celebrity elimination-dating show, modestly titled “Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch.” In the premiere, the football star sifted through 85 contenders to find the 17 women who will accompany him to his mansion for the upcoming episodes.

Although Chad Ochocinco’s Hollywood escapades have worn the patience of Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer-who has complained that it’s hard to get ready for the season with the team’s number one receiver missing several practices-Ochocinco is still sticking to the sport that made him famous in the first place.

That may not be the case with gold medal winning ice skater Even Lysacek, however. The “DWTS” second-place finisher hasn’t announced whether he will compete in the upcoming skating season, and the Olympic champ opted out of this fall’s Grand Prix-a move some say indicates he may take this season off, or even leave competitive skating altogether.

Lysacek’s longtime on-ice rival is definitely taking a break from the skating world. The inimitable Johnny Weir-whose skating routines are as much about artistic expression as sport-announced that he will not be professionally competing this season. Weir, who finished sixth at the Olympics, explained that his intention is to “reinvent myself as an athlete and artist. I say this with the hope of returning as a competitor for the 2011–12 season.”

From the Book of James:
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 Confess your trespasses[e] to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. 18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.

That must follow where it goes
Trying to learn from what’s behind you
And never knowing what’s in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores
And I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I’ll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
‘Til what we put off ’til tomorrow
It has now become today
So don’t you sit upon the shoreline
And say you’re satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance that tide
And I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I’ll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
There’s bound to be rough waters
And I know I’ll tke soome falls
With the good Lord as my captain
I can make it through them all
And I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I’ll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
Lord, I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry”-Garth Brooks

CLOSING:
Hold on to what is good, even if it’s a handful of earth. Hold on to what you believe, even if it’s a tree that stands by itself. Hold on to what you must do, even if it’s a long way from here. Hold on to your faith, even if it’s easier to let go. Hold on to God’s hand
