New Year, New Outlook, New Resolutions, New Miles traveled

GREETINGS FROM the concourse of The “World Famous” Madison Square Garden. It is not nearly as big as I thought it would be, but you can almost feel the history of this place. From Ali Frazier, The Stanley Cup, Marilyn singing to Kennedy, George Harrison held his Concert For Bangladesh, ANY Sinatra performance, and everything else that has played these historic walls. This is the first (out of town) event of 2012 for me as The 2012 PBR Tour Kicks Off at The Garden.

 

On the flight in, I am continuing to have difficulties with my sinuses and this plane flight really aggravate the pain in my noggin. BUT on this flight I was lucky enough to have one of those “I saw God today moments” that I not only enjoy, but when acknowledged, make the rest of the B.S. of the day bearable.

 

Just after takeoff and beyond the normal turbulence associated with taking off and landing, as the pilot maneuvered us through the cloud cover, I noticed something very cool. As I looked to my left out the window there was a rainbow. Now anytime anyone (including me) see’s a rainbow (in the air, NOT on a bumper or window sticker!) it is easy to say “cool look at that.” So I not only enjoyed the “oh cool” moment of the day, but there was something else…

 

When we see a rainbow from the ground, we see it “going up.” The view from the plane allowed me to see from another angle, the one we don’t get to see as the rainbows pierces the clouds as we look up to the heavens. I was able to see this rainbow as it pierced the clouds towards the earth to someone’s pot of gold, or good luck. Many times in life we get stuck in what we see, and don’t realize there are many other ways to look at something, someone, or a situation. It was truly a cool visual experience.

 

And as we continued into “The Big Apple,” to take on “Gotham City” for the weekend it was (and always is) an emotional and pride felt view when I see one of  New York’s finest broads…”Lady Liberty” herself standing proud in the harbor. She truly is beautiful sight. Then as my eyes focused east…I saw New Jersey (and all good feelings were gone).

 

As I am thinking here in the 5 Burroughs…I guess

Once in your life you’ll find her
Someone who turns your heart around
And next thing you know
You’re closin’ down the town

Wake up and she’s still with you
Even though you left her way across town
You’re wonderin’ to yourself
Hey what’ve I found

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy but it’s true…

Fun to be out on the road again, especially during a time of year that I used to really dread. I used to hate this time of year, it was always a time just after the holidays with cold weather and nothing to do…now I see the beginning of the year as an awesome experience of change and “Newness”

 

This is a time of year for looking forward to a GREAT new year, and a NEW START! A time for resolutions and what we can do to better ourselves and for others. It is also an expensive time of year for me, because I feel I need EVERY movie on my top 100 list of 2011. My bank account is taxed, and UPS man is BUSY!!!

 

While we all need to look ahead, it is important learn from mistakes, and to hold onto good memories in our hearts, like a scrapbook we carry at all times.

 

While I have the scars from past mistakes tattooed all over me, I also dust off some great memories of my own daily. This was made easier by a gift I received for Christmas.  I was given one “them fancy electronic picture frames.” This thing is awesome, well it is after I got over my 3 hour learning curve to get all the pictures onto it! But it is kinda fun to see some of my favorite memories come to life in a slide show…it is also kinda nice to see one of my favorite faces back in my living room, as beautiful as ever.

 

So hold onto and give a hug to those you care about, and when they are gone (for whatever reason…hold them in your heart). Here’s to a New Year packing an electronic frame full of new pictures, and a heart full of scrapbook memories!

 

Plan, Prepare, Position, Promote & Propagate
The New Year can always bring New Beginnings & New Challenges

In all the hype of the New Year coming, you always hear about the “resolutions” you & others are going to make, & how you will do things different; etc.

Well, sounds good in theory but if you don’t Present yourself with the right Plan, Preparation, Positioning & Propagating, it’s USELESS! So this NY, take the next few days, make a Plan, Position yourself, Prepare to execute it by getting yourself in the right Position, Promote it in your mind every day, then make haste to Propagate it or “transmit it” into reality.

Be it your Personal Health, Professional /Career Goals, Personal Goals, or even the smallest of things you want to accomplish in 2012, use this little simple plan of attack, & look back in 2013 & say, “…yes I accomplished my yearly resolutions!”

 

The Chinese Calendar says it is the Year of The Dragon, I say it is the Year of the “The Matt.” This could be defined in many ways, yes I am a person who get’s “walked on,” and some say I “just lay there and don’t do much,” and lately some say I have developed a laid back “relaxed” way of working. But no matter what, this year I want to welcome everyone and as usual clean up after some, and the dirt that many bring.

 

2012 New Year Resolutions written as acknowledgement of faults and to put into writing areas I wish to better myself and a chance at bettering others. The ONLY way something can happen is for it to be acted on, but before that…it must be thought and for me, written.

OCCUPY:
Now I have another reason not to like Worthington
‘Occupy’ organizer has central Ohio roots

The concrete of New York City’s Zuccotti Park contrasts with the trees and grass of Worthington’s village green.

But Marisa Holmes has spent months in both — as an organizer of the Occupy Wall Street movement that started in the lower Manhattan park and years before in the Worthington center, when she was a teenager protesting war.

DID YOU KNOW?:
Rock-Paper-Scissors has been used in REAL court cases!
In 2006, the two sides of a lengthy court case were unable to settle a trivial matter on the case: where a deposition would be held. Despite long discussions, they could not reach an agreement.
Tired of this, the Judge in the case decided he’d had enough. He ordered them to agree on a neutral site. If they couldn’t agree to that, then they would play one game of rock-paper-scissors. The winner would pick the setting!

His apparent reasoning of this was to shame the lawyers for getting hung up on such a silly point.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
‎”What is a messenger w/out a listener? What is a teacher w/out a student? What is a prophecy w/out a believer in it? What is a sower of seeds w/out good soil? What is light w/out dark? What is love w/out hate?

 
FUNNY:

For Christmas, I got a humidifier and a dehumidifier. I thought I’d put them in the basement to let them fight it out, and see which I will use.

NEW YEAR’s RESOLUTIONS:

Easy New Year’s resolutions for a healthy new year

Many people will be making New Year’s Resolutions this year. However, not everyone will be keeping them!

Statistics show 45-percent of Americans usually set New Year’s Resolutions. Only 8-percent of them always achieve success. Here are five easy resolutions that have a low risk of failure and high chance of improving your overall health.

Get Physical-This doesn’t mean you have to “work out.” It simply means try incorporate more activity into your day. Shoot for at least 30 minutes a day. A simple brisk walk or fun salsa dancing will do.

 

Strength Train-Adding weight resistance to your day will help you gain more energy, stronger bones, a faster metabolism, and lower your cholesterol. Not all strength training require weights, you can do things like squats, push-ups or lunges.

Portion Control-American’s food portions are out of control. In order to downsize yourself, you need to downsize your portions. Use smaller plates and bowls and read the portion sizes on food labels.
Nix the Salt-American salt consumption is almost twice the recommended limit of sodium. Sodium leads to water retention and high blood pressure. Read the labels of processed foods and choose lower sodium items.
Take Care of Your Teeth-Bacteria in the mouth can lead to serious problems if neglected, including heart disease. It’s important to brush daily and also floss daily. Flossing will help remove bacteria that brushing can’t.
Have Good Expectations-Each year people set themselves up for failure with New Year’s Resolutions. Whether it’s aiming for too high of a goal, or beating yourself up when failing. Close to 3 out of 4 people who set a resolution never succeed.

 

Think positive about your goals and accomplishments and re-evaluate your expectations as needed.

Shutting down pill mills will save lives, prevent addiction
Even though it hardly is the end of the prescription-drug-abuse scourge that torments southern Ohio and many other places in America, seeing the doors locked on the last “pill mill” in Scioto County must bring special satisfaction to those whose lives and communities have been damaged.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine took justifiable pride last week as Scioto County law enforcement and officials of the Ohio Board of Pharmacy raided the Greater Medical Advance clinic in Wheelersburg and arrested its doctor, Victor Andrei Georgescu, on felony counts of funding drug trafficking, permitting drug abuse and conspiracy charges.

BUISNESS/PRODUCT/IDEER OF WEEK:
Got A Baby? Then Move To The “Baby Ghetto” In The Back Of The Airplane!

We’ve all been there. You settle into our seats for a cross-country flight, think for a second that the seat might be vacant for the flight, and then…BAM! A mother and her baby sit down. Within minutes, the baby is screaming, the mother is flustered, and the Beats By Dre headphones you’ve got on your head just can’t get loud enough to drown out all the commotion.

It’s a problem for all airlines: How do you allow babies on board without disrupting other passengers? Well, a few airlines seemed to have figured out a solution. Rather than just seat the babies with the rest of the passengers, they’ve created what are being dubbed “baby ghettos”—select areas of the plane, usually all the way in the back, where mothers or fathers and their young babies are forced to sit with other mothers or fathers and their young babies. This way, if a baby cries and gets out of hand during the flight, they’re not disrupting anyone but other babies and parents who are understanding of how babies can get. Problem solved! Right?

YOU DA MAN: (story has been ongoing for quite a few months, however, I love the fight in this chick. To some of the BrideZillas I have worked with…you could learn a lot from her!)

Paralyzed Carolina bride still hopes to walk again

A North Carolina woman who got married last summer after a poolside accident left her paralyzed isn’t walking yet, but she hasn’t given up on learning to move on her own again.

Rachelle Friedman Chapman is stronger after training for almost three weeks in October at Project Walk, a spinal cord injury recovery center in Carlsbad, Calif. And the 26-year-old from Knightdale, near Raleigh, hopes to return for more training that could help her walk for the first time since the accident just weeks before her original wedding date.

“You see people standing up out of their wheelchair, people who are relearning how to walk,” Chapman said in a recent phone interview.

It was on May 23, 2010, that Chapman was pushed into a pool by a friend at her bachelorette party in Virginia Beach, Va. She fell into the shallow end and awkwardly hit the cement bottom. The injury to her vertebra left her with no feeling from the chest down and feeling on the inside of her arms but not the outside. Her wedding had been scheduled for a few weeks after the party, but she and her fiancé postponed it by more than a year.
She has never revealed the name of the friend, who was a bridesmaid when the wedding was finally held in July 2011. The cruel timing of her injury and her enduring positivity landed her story in newspapers, websites and television reports around the world.

UMMM:

Pepsi Says Mountain Dew Can Dissolve Mouse Carcasses
Pepsi Co., facing a lawsuit from a man who claims to have found a mouse in his Mountain Dew can, has an especially creative, if disgusting, defense: their soda would have dissolved a dead mouse before the man could have found it. An Illinois man sued Pepsi in 2009 after he claims he “spat out the soda to reveal a dead mouse,” the Madison County Record reports. He claims he sent the mouse to Pepsi, which then “destroyed” the remains after he allowed them to test it, according to his complaint. Most shudder-worthy, however, is that Pepsi’s lawyers also found experts to testify, based on the state of the remains sent to them, that “the mouse would have dissolved in the soda had it been in the can from the time of its bottling until the day the plaintiff drank it,” according to the Record. (It would have become a “jelly-like substance,” according to Pepsi, adds Legal Newsline.) This seems like a winning-the-battle-while-surrendering-the-war kind of strategy that hinges on the argument that Pepsi’s product is essentially a can of bright green/yellow battery acid. The lawyers still appear to be lawyering behind the scenes but we cannot wait for this to come to trial (though we think a trial is about as likely as the chances of us “Doing the Dew” ever again).

WHAT THE HE**?:
‘Doctor’ accused of injecting woman’s butt with cement

A Miami Gardens woman who wanted to enhance her “flat” buttocks was severely injured by a self-proclaimed doctor who injected her with a mix of toxins and sealed it up with glue. This was no ordinary flat repair. Oneal Ron Morris took a look and went to work. Not on a tire. But on the backside of a Miami Gardens woman who was seeking the derriere of her dreams. Instead, she got a tush full of toxins. Morris, a self-proclaimed doctor, injected a concoction of “fix-a-flat’’ — cement, mineral oil and Super Glue — into the woman’s buttocks, police said.

FINANCE/BUISNESS:
50 Ways to Improve Your Finances in 2012
A guide to mastering your money in the new year

A new year offers a fresh start. Whether you’re ready to ramp up your earning power, start saving more money, or manage what you have more effectively, this 50-step guide is designed to help you improve every aspect of your financial life, from overall security to specific saving and spending strategies.

1. Focus on the “why” of your goals instead of the “how.

 

2. Rethink your relationship with money. For those struggling to make better money decisions, life coach Christine Hassler suggests thinking about money as if it’s a person. “How’s your relationship with George?” she asks, referring to President George Washington’s face on the $1 bill. In her book 20 Something, 20 Everything, she encourages readers to first examine their history with money. “If they don’t excavate what they believe and their sense of worth, they are unable to progress,” she explains.

 

3. Protect your privacy.

4. Plan a comeback. A lot of people have struggled over the past few years, but that downswing doesn’t have to be permanent.
5. Visualize your future self.

 

6. Get organized. Financial accounts often come with monstrous amounts of paperwork.
7. Create a paperwork system. Keeping all of your paperwork in one place can be step one to a better financial life.

 

8. Live below your means. Danny Kofke, a teacher and father of two, manages to live well on his $40,000-a-year salary.

BOOKING HOLIDAY EVENTS FOR 2012! “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”- WARREN BUFFETT

HEALTH:
Harvard Declares Dairy NOT Part of Healthy Diet
The Harvard School of Public Health sent a strong message to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and nutrition experts everywhere with the recent release of its “Healthy Eating Plate” food guide.  The university was responding to the USDA’s new MyPlate guide for healthy eating, which replaced the outdated and misguided food pyramid.

INSPIRATION:
“When life’s strong winds come blowing, bend with them and let go. By bending, you will become stronger in new places. By letting go, you will be making room for the new and the better.”

SUCCESS:
“Success thrives on the idea of giving. Share your success. Share your great qualities. Allow people to see you for who you really are. Give of yourself and it will come back tenfold.”—Daniel Chidiac

 
QUOTES:

“Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.“―Unknown

CLOSING:
‎”The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking.” – Robert H. Schuller

IN THEATERS:
THE MOST TERRIFYING MOVIE of 2012 (yes I know it is only 6 days into the year), ‘The Devil Inside’ rated “R” follows the story of a possessed woman and her daughter search for the truth in an attempt to try and understand what she is going through.

 
DVD:
‘Contagion’ staring and all star cast of Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law,  and Kate Winslet has a story line that is about as lethargic as the characters that get sick. Wait till it comes out on cable, or rent ‘Outbreak’ (was more original, better written and had decent action and plot).

So “campy” it is good…’Shark Night 3D,’ rated “PG-13.”

Katie Holmes (I miss her as “Joey” from ‘Dawson’s Creek’) stars in the terrifying, ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ rated “R.”
