Viva Las Vegas, Looking for a Gold Rush. But wondering “how far away?”

GREETINGS FROM the Home Office in Dublin Ohio in route to Las Vegas.

Here’s to hoping for a winner winner and chicken dinner!!!

I am off the road this weekend and had gigs misbook, and cancel. I guess it is just life telling me I need a break…and need to go to this “Hot Yoga” thing I have been promising a friend I would do for months now.

 

Actually greetings from Starbucks at Kroger’s in Dublinwith a “Grande’ Hot Chocilate (key pad sticking) all over my computer…AND ME!


I was up late working on booking bands and DJ’s for The Columbus Marathon on October 16th.  


So yes, it has been a busy week. I booked 27+ acts for this event IN ONE DAY!!! If you are a DJ or IN A BAND-or know someone who is, I am booking for a The Nationwide Columbus Marathon (a LARGE event on THE MORNING of Sunday October 16th!) That will put you in front of over 22,000 people!!! Please e-mail sosaudio@yahoo.com for more info. Little WORK, DECENT PAY! Wonder if my Buddy Van at LDNL Productions would be proud of me?

 

Anyway…so I was up late and working from my alternate office (my bed), and was too lazy to plug in my laptop, and worked till the battery ran out and I could justify going to sleep. Sounded like a good ideer at the time. BTW don’t people in the music scene/industry ever sleep COME ON!!! I was up way too long! Anway…

 

I woke up to a “pop” sound, and wondered why my room got so warm. Then wondered why it was so quiet (I sleep with a fan on for breeze and some white noise)…then I jumped up out of bed! DID I NOT PAY ELECTRIC?!?!?

 

I am not cheap, but am on the road a lot and forget small things like cable, gas, and electric from time to time. The gas doesn’t bother me (well maybe in Mid February), Cable I don’t watch much of, and have cell service back up for internet, and electric well I like it dark…but if out for too long, the fridge does develops an “odor.”

 

So I ran…RAN downstairs to see if there was an “envelope” on door. Thank God there was not, but called anyway to report an outage. I had a lot of work to do, so jumped in the shower for a QUICK shower-it did get a lil cool at the end. But I won’t have to worry about being “overly excited” today (T.M.I.?)

 

SO went to Panara to do work (remember I am not at Panara right now). I always feel bad about being in these places and feel like I need to spend money, so I bought one of their $4.00 Orange Juices and a $3.00 sandwich (which made White Castles seem like a two fisted burger-but at least my hands looked bigger. Needed all the size due to the cold shower…and remember I have Hot Chocolate on me, NOT O.J.)

 

I got my order, and came back to my table to do work….dug through my bag and YEP! FORGOT MY F*&KING POWER CHORD TO MY LAPTOP!

 

Ate my overpriced breakfast and came home to get my power chord. Grabbed and did not want to go back to Panara (there was a cute girl there that was wondering what the hell I was doing with sandwich in my BIG HAND on one side, and digging through my book bag in a panic on the other.

 

So here I am at Starbucks in Kroger’s (at least I can do some shopping when I am done, found out I am out of tooth paste-or just could not find it in the dark with electric out?). I again didn’t want to sit here for “free” so I bought a large hot chocolate. AND since I still was hungry after the tiny Panara sandwich bought a Caramel Square (BTW those things are AWESOME!!!).

 

I sat down with hot chocolate in hand and saw a post I was tagged in on facebook. It surprised me so much I laughed…coughed…and wore half of my drink, and the other half on my laptop. It is a lil chilly outside, the AC is on here at Kroger’s and well again I had a COLD shower so, the hot chocolate besides being all over me…at lease warmed me up. However my laptop is just covered and didn’t need to be warmed up (think it is now over heating due to all the Chocolate gunk on the keypad?)

 

This week the weather has been amazing and awesome to sit outside and work. BUT with the change into this awesome weather comes my sinus headaches. It has been less than a fun week for that. BUT these are only sinus headaches that at one time would turn to migraines. Since I have started taking the products of Visalus I have not had any problems! Plus just as 4 of  my friends found out this week…great way to make a couple extra bucks (with little work)

So yea it has been kinda a down…even rough week for not only me, but this country. THIS WEEK ‎31 Lost, 31 doors receive that dreaded knock, 31 families w/ shattered hearts, 31 pairs of boots lined up w/ rifles, tags, helmets, 31 comrades grieved for, 31 funeral services, 31 newly made grave markers, 31 empty place settings, 31 souls who gave all, whose lives leave a void-31 gone forever.

Plus I lost one of those rock & rollers I looked up to. O-H-I-O native Jani Lane of 80’s Rock Band Warrant passed away on Thursday Night. Jani was a hell of a showman and decent voice as well as one of the most prolific song writers of his day (I know…the 80’s hair scene was not real deep), but there was a song that while listening to it on Thursday, brought back a lot of High School Dance Memories and some painful as well as fun heartfelt moments. The song can be interpreted on many levels….still hits me to this day for some of the same, and many different reasons!

 

Heaven

Got a picture of your house

And you’re standing by the door

It’s black and white and faded

And it’s looking pretty worn

 

See the factory that I worked

Silhouetted in the back

The memories are gray,

But man they’re really coming back

 

I don’t need to be the king of the world

As long as I’m the hero of this little girl

 

Heaven isn’t too far away,

Closer to it every day.

No matter what your friends might say…

 

How I love the way you move

And the sparkle in your eyes

There’s a color deep inside them

Like a blue suburban sky

 

When I come home late at night

And you’re in bed asleep

I wrap my arms around you

So I can feel you breathe

 

I don’t need to be a superman

As long as you will always be my biggest fan

 

Heaven isn’t too far away,

Closer to it every day. (oh-oh)

No matter what your friends might say…

We’ll find a way

 

(Whoa, yeah, babe)

 

Now the lights are going out

Along the boulevard

The memories come rushing back

And it makes it pretty hard

 

I’ve got nowhere left to go

And no one really cares

I don’t know what to do

But I’m never giving up on you

 

Heaven isn’t too far away

Closer to it every day. (oh-oh)

No matter what your friends say

I know we’re gonna find a way

 

Heaven

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

Heaven

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh Oh

Heaven

It’s not too far away

Oh-oh

Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

Yeah

 

BTW the …”Yea!” and the end makes the whole song, just sayin’

 

And the stock market downturn has many worried. Maybe even going through hell while listening to “Heaven?” (OK that MAY have been a transitional PUSH?). Just for the record…those who make fun of me for the “magic shoebox” of cash I have stashed with a small arsenal…how “silly am I now?”

 

Saw this quote “The key to surviving a stock market crash is liquidity. So I’m off to the bar.”


But I gotta tell you, I found a great upside to all this mess, Gold!!! On a whim I took in a bunch of old gold I don’t wear. “Mr. T” starter sets, earrings (I don’t wear my earrings anymore-damn maturity), “MAYBE” some gifts from and to former significant others, as well as broken stuff that was from High School. The rumor this week was that gold was more valuable than platinum…I am here to tell ya’s THAT IS TRUE! I got more out of broken pieces than I did when I bought them. For example back in (let’s just say the early 90’s) high school I bought a cheap necklace for a believe $115.00. It was many years ago, and now broken and UGLY (I am sure it was not ugly at the time! Ok maybe). I got $190.00 for this broken piece of CRAP! Take in your old gold you are not using. However 1.) DON’T RIP OUT THE TEETH FILLINGS! 2.) Probably should keep any gold bars you have.

 

Have a rewarding weekend and find a way to make it “Golden” for yourself and others!!!   And the most “valuable news” I got all week…my neighbor called and the power is back on. Warm shower! Look out world!!!

‘Friday Night Lights’ exec producer Jason Katims talks plans for a(nother) big-screen movie

 

When the Riggins brothers clinked beer bottles and pledged, “Texas forever,” in the series finale of Friday Night Lights last month, apparently they weren’t messing around. At a Television Critics Association event yesterday, FNL executive producer Peter Berg revealed that he was developing a big-screen version of NBC’s revered family drama about high school football, which means that the book that became a movie that became a TV show could very well become a movie once again!

 

In hopes of scoring more information about the project, EW respectfully blitzed FNL executive producer/showrunner Jason Katims. “It is something that we had talked about for a couple of years, almost in a half-kidding way,” shares Katims. “And then a few months ago, [executive producer] Brian Grazer and Pete called me saying they really wanted to do this. We had some meetings and we came up with a direction that we really loved. The trick was to figure out a way to both honor the series and not move away from that, but still find something that would be a satisfying movie in and of itself. It’s still very early — I’m just beginning to plot out the story for the script — but it’s something that we’re all excited about.”

GREAT STORY:

DEF CON trains 8-year-olds in hacking

Kids as young as eight years old learned about lock picking and computer hacking, but were told to use their newfound knowledge for good.

 

Joseph Horman already had seen the lock-picking videos on YouTube. But it was a different thing entirely for the 13-year-old puzzle-lover to get lessons in lock picking and computer hacking at an event sanctioned by adults.

 

The world’s largest gathering of computer hackers — DEF CON, which is happening this weekend at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas — held its first-ever hacking classes for kids this year, at an event appropriately called DEF CON Kids.

 

Sessions in hacking were designed for kiddos ages 8 to 16.

Domino’s stops avoiding Noid, brings him back

 

The Noid is coming back.

For those who can’t remember, or were trying to forget, the Noid is the red-suited, rabbit-eared villain who bounced around Domino’s Pizza commercials in the late 1980s. Starting Monday, Domino’s will feature him in an arcade-style video game on its Facebook page for one week. The company will give away a coupon for a free pizza every minute to the player with the highest score.

MUSIC:

Jack White And Bob Dylan Record An Album Of Unreleased Hank Williams Songs

 

Hank Williams is considered by many as the most influential country music artist ever. Between the short period of 1947 till his death in 1953 at the young age of 29, the singer songwriter released thirty top ten singles throughout his lifetime and five posthumously. His most famous songs were “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” “Hey Good Lookin’,” and “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.”

 

For years Williams has had a profound influence on many bands and his catalog of smash hits is still being covered by numerous groups. Musicians like his son Hank Williams Jr. as well as, Willie Nelson, Tony Bennett, The Residents, Patsy Cline, Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Louis Armstrong, Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Leonard Cohen, Cake, Kenny Rankin, Beck Hansen, Johnny Cash and Tom Petty are still offering tribute to this fallen star

FOR THE COWGIRLS?

Adele Says She’s Just A Country Girl

Adele, the British pop sensation, says she’s just a country girl… and she’s talking about our country.

 

Adele wants to take her music career in a fresh direction. And the British singer isn’t looking to Motown or Philly as might be expected. Nope — she is looking to the heartland of America for her new inspiration.

 

Adele is enjoying huge success with her current album 21, has said that she wants a country and bluegrass influence on the music of her next album. Who can blame her? Apparently, she fell in love with the genre during her recent American tour. “I was exposed to a lot of country, rockabilly and bluegrass because I was touring for such a long time,” she said. What’s so appealing about country music? The singer, known for her heart-achingly soulful ballads said she was inspired by the “melodies and to-the-point lyrics,” adding that she wants to “spend some time in Austin, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee, and learn about it.”.

BOOKS:

Talk about a GREAT READ! ‘The Happiness Project book’

The Happiness Project is one of the most thoughtful works on happiness to have emerged from the recent explosion of interest in the subject. Rubin weaves together philosophy, scientific research, history, analysis, and real-life experiences as she explains what worked for her—and what didn’t. Her conclusions are sometimes counter-intuitive – for example, she finds that money can buy happiness, when spent correctly – but they resonate with readers of all backgrounds.

 

Filled with practical advice, sharp insight, charm, and humor, The Happiness Project manages to be illuminating yet entertaining, profound yet compulsively readable. But The Happiness Project isn’t just an engaging and provocative book. Gretchen’s passion for her subject jumps off the page, and reading a few chapters of this book will inspire you to start your own happiness project.

 

Gretchen has a wide, enthusiastic following, and her idea for a “happiness project” no longer describes just a book or a blog; it’s a movement. Happiness Project groups have sprung up from Los Angeles to Enid, Oklahoma to Boston, where people meet to discuss their own happiness projects. More than a dozen blogs have been launched by people who are following Gretchen’s example. On her companion website, the Happiness Project Toolbox, enthusiastic readers track and share their own happiness projects.

 

 

“A cross between the Dalai Lama’s The Art of Happiness and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, and seamlessly buttressed by insights from sources as diverse as psychological scientists, novelists, poets, and philosophers, Gretchen Rubin has written a book that readers will revisit again and again as they seek to fulfill their own dreams for happiness.”

— Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ph.D., The How of Happiness: A Scientific Approach to Getting the Life You Want

 

 

“This book made me happy in the first five pages. And the more I read it, the happier I got. It’s filled with great insights that have changed every part of my life, from love to money, from work to play, from writing to Diet Coke.”

— A.J. Jacobs, The Year of Living Biblically and The Guinea Pig Diaries

 

“Happiness is contagious. And so is The Happiness Project. Once you’ve read Gretchen Rubin’s tale of a year searching for satisfaction, you’ll want to start your own happiness project and get your friends and family to join you. This is the rare book that will make you both smile and think—often on the same page.”

— Daniel H. Pink, A Whole New Mind

 

“The Happiness Project is a wonderful book. Gretchen shows how you can be happier, starting right now, with small, actionable steps accessible to everyone.  Among her many attainable strategies, her discovery of the connection between inner happiness and outer order is spot on!”

— Julie Morgenstern, Organizing from the Inside Out and SHED Your Stuff, Change Your Life

Military killed Taliban who downed US helicopter

 

International forces killed the Taliban insurgents responsible for shooting down a U.S. helicopter and killing 38 U.S. and Afghan forces over the weekend, but they are still seeking the top insurgent leader they were going after in Saturday’s mission, the top American commander in Afghanistan said Wednesday.

 

Marine Corps Gen. John Allen told a Pentagon news conference that an F-16 airstrike Monday took out fewer than 10 insurgents involved in the attack on the Chinook helicopter.

 

In a separate statement Wednesday, the military said the Monday strike killed Taliban leader Mullah Mohibullah and the insurgent who fired the rocket-propelled grenade at the helicopter. The military said intelligence gained on the ground provided a high degree of confidence that the insurgent who fired the grenade was the person killed. It did not provide further details.

Boy’s ode to fallen dad inspires tearful responses

 

The story of a 10-year-old who posted an iReport honoring his dad who died in the recent Chinook helicopter crash in Afghanistan has sparked a huge outpouring from CNN.com readers.

 

It was Braydon Nichols’ desire, his mother, Jessica Nichols, told CNN that his dad not just be another faceless casualty in the nearly decade-long war. The boy wanted the world to see his father’s face, just as news reports showed the faces of other soldiers who lost their lives in the crash. So on his iReport, Braydon posted a picture of Army Chief Warrant Officer Bryan Nichols, a pilot, in his jump uniform sitting next to other soldiers.

BUISNESS OF THE WEEK:

Michelin-Starred Restaurant Staff Scare Looters, Share Booze

The staff at The Ledbury, a 2 Michelin Star restaurant in London’s Notting Hill, deserve some recognition for two separate acts of heroism during London’s riots. A food blogger named Louise Yang wrote about an encounter at the restaurant where looters stormed in and began robbing patrons “around the fourth dish of the tasting course.” Yang had a ring taken. Then the staff stepped in:

The kitchen staff at the Ledbury went beyond their call of duty by rushing up from the kitchen with rolling pins, fry baskets, and other dangerous kitchen tools and scared off the looters. Then they provided well-needed glasses of alcohol including champagne and whisky. When word came that the looters were coming back a second time, they ushered us into the bathrooms and told us to lock the doors. A few minutes later, they led us into the wine cellar and told us to lock ourselves in there.

Well done.

Yang took the robbery in stride, adding: “Guy who took my ring, I hope you put it to good use and don’t just dump it in the street. Also, I hope you get a case of flaming diarrhea for the rest of your life.”

 


IDEER OF THE WEEK:

Petro unveils ‘Enterprise University’ plan

 

Ohio could pour as much as $160 million a year into a scholarship fund for about 8,000 of its best students if all 14 public universities signed onto the new “Enterprise University” program.

 

Those schools, with the University of Cincinnati and Miami University among a handful that might qualify for the highest tier, would “invest” as much as 20 percent of their taxpayer funding into the scholarship fund to attract students to their own campuses.

 

Board of Regents Chancellor Jim Petro formally unveiled the program at a statewide conference today. It is sure to face some changes as the universities lobby before the General Assembly for flexibility in setting tuition and try to protect as much of their taxpayer subsidy as possible.

 

“We’re excited about the idea,” UC President Greg Williams said. “Everyone is concerned about increasing tuition at a disproportionate level. But we need to have a discussion about ways we can have modest, planned tuition increases. We also need to figure out what is the stable base of funding from the state.”

WHAT THE HELL?:

Fair banter might silence one Smokey

Smokey Bear said something that burned the wrong ears.

That’s the story I’m getting from my friend Paul Hammock, who for the past 10 years was among the volunteers providing the voice of the giant Smokey at the Ohio State Fair.

On Friday, he was told not to come back because of something he said as Smokey to U.S. Sen. Rob Portman.

“I’m stunned,” said Hammock, a 65-year-old retired teacher who lives in the Clintonville neighborhood.

The volunteers who voice Smokey sit hidden in a booth off to the side of the 14-foot-tall figure at the fair, which ended Sunday. Other volunteers pass them notes with the names of people who pass near the bear, so Smokey can address visitors personally.

Usually, the visitors are children. On Friday, though, Hammock was informed that Portman was walking through.

Hammock said he welcomed Portman and made one of his standard jokes about how Smokey stays young-looking by dying his gray hair.

He said he then added something like: “That’s a little trick you might want to try.”

ARE YOU KINDDING ME:
Bert and Ernie wed? An idea divorced from reality

An online petition calling for the nuptials of Muppet flat-mates Bert and Ernie has sparked comment, controversy and lots of tweets.

But don’t bet on wedding bells to ring.

Chicago resident Lair Scott, who posted the petition, is seeking matrimony for the “Sesame Street” chums as a way to make gay and lesbian kids who watch the show feel better about themselves, and to promote tolerance for people who are different.

The marriage could legitimately happen, he reasons, since Sesame Street is located in New York, where gay marriage became legal in June. Others agreed. By Thursday afternoon, Scott’s petition had collected 5,800 signatures.

RELIGION:

Isaiah 43:18-19 But the LORD says, “Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago. Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already—you can see it now! I will make a road through the wilderness and give you streams of water there.

 

Isaiah 48:6 “All I foretold has now taken place; you have to admit my predictions were right. Now I will tell you of new things to come, events that I did not reveal before.

 

2nd Corinthians 5:17 Anyone who is joined to Christ is a new being; the old is gone, the new has come.

HEALTH:

Why Work Out? These are my daily tips to some of the dudes I train that in addition to just plain self esteem, and health ask “WHY?”

 

Large Biceps

In a poll of Cosmopolitan readers, 1 out of 5 women confessed that nice biceps on a man makes them “absolutely melt.”

 

6-Pack Abs

You could have biceps the size of bowling balls, but if you’ve got the beginnings of a gut, any discriminating woman will think twice before considering you boyfriend material. Their fear: A little excess midriff meat now means one fat, sloppy bastard in 10 years.

 

Powerful Forearms

Women see strong forearms and think you can do everything: Fend off a mugger, build a house, and maintain a dexterous touch long enough to leave them extremely satisfied. So roll up those sleeves, and let ’em have a look.

 

A Nice Butt

Women check out your butt because it’s a clue to your worthiness as a physical specimen. If you’re in great shape, it carries high. Otherwise, your rear end droops like a sack of old potatoes. Old, hairy potatoes.

 

A Broad Back

A wide back is essential for a V-shaped torso, and women’s attraction to it is ancestral. “When it was important that our mates protect us from woolly mammoths on the plains, we looked for a gene pool that could provide us with protection,” says Pega Ren, Ed.D., a sexologist in British Columbia.

 

Sculpted Shoulders

“The shoulder muscles are really the muscles of love and war,” says Nancy Etcoff, Ph.D., author of Survival of the Prettiest. They also make the whole look when combined with a broad back. Strong shoulders literally sweep women off their feet.

 

 

Rock-Hard Calves

“Women want an overall sense of strength and fitness,” says Etcoff. “If a man looks as if he can lift something but can’t run, it looks disproportionate.

 

 

A Big Chest

“Women treasure your chest as much as you do theirs,” says Emily Dubberley, a sex expert based in the UK. “Touching, kissing, and licking a man’s chest is undoubtedly a turn-on for most women.”

 

 

Strong Hamstrings

Many women prefer being on top because it lets them lean forward to rub against your pubic bone. Having well-conditioned hamstrings and glutes makes it easier to meet her halfway for more pleasure.

 
SUCCESS:

“Each success only buys an admission ticket to a more difficult problem” ~Henry A. Kissinger

 

“The Difference Between Beliefs and Knowings” by Wayne Dyer

March 1st, 2010

Emerson reminded us, “The ancestor to every action is a thought.”

 

Every night when you go off to sleep, you enter into what we call the dream state, also known as the dream consciousness. When you enter into dream consciousness, you leave behind this physical world and all of its limitations, and you enter into this world of pure consciousness, and you enter with no doubt. And as you enter into this world without any doubt, you open up a whole world of possibilities.

 

Now just imagine yourself in your dream, and in that dream you want to examine something in a room. Let’s say you find yourself in a kitchen and you’re sitting at a kitchen table in your dream. And as you’re sitting there talking to whomever in your dream, you notice that on a shelf—let’s say about 10 feet away on the other side of the kitchen—there’s a bouquet of flowers. And you want to examine those flowers and just look at them more closely to see what the petals look like and what the colors look like, and you want to have a real close sort of examination of them. You want to bring them up close.

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!!

Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio ..

 

“To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me.  It is the most requested column I’ve ever written.

 

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

 

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

 

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

 

3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

 

4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch.

 

5. Pay off your credit cards every

month.

 

6. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

 

7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

 

8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

 

9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

 

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

 

11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

 

12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.

 

13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

 

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

 

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don’t worry; God never blinks.

 

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

 

17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful,

beautiful or joyful.

 

18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.

 

19. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else.

 

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.

 

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

 

22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

 

23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

 

24 The most important sex organ is the brain.

 

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

 

26.

Frame every so-called disaster with these words ‘In five years, will this matter?’

 

27. Always choose life.

 

28. Forgive everyone everything.

 

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

 

30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

 

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

 

32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

 

33. Believe in miracles.

 

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.

 

35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

 

36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.

 

37. Your children get only one childhood.

 

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

 

39. Get outside every day. Miracles

are waiting everywhere.

 

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.

 

41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

 

42. The best is yet to come…

 

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up

 

44. Yield.

 

45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.
