Long Weekend to enjoy an “Old Blue Chair” but remember the “Dream” we honor this weekend

GREETINGS FROM 17,000 feet as I just left the Memphis Airport in Route to LA for the weekend, on this Friday the 13th-insert spooky music that conjures images of hockey mask camp counselors. Speaking of that, join my buddy Chris O rocking the Budweiser Terrace at tonight’s Blue Jacket’s game at Nationwide Arena. 

 

I briefly “touched down in the land of the Delta Blues.” There was not much time in this layover and it was brought to my attention that due to only having 45 minutes, I better not be ‘Walking in Memphis’ going from one gate to the other.

Memphis, home to Beal Street, and Da Delta Blues! As I was running through the airport, to make my connection, you could almost hear ‘Ole Jerry Lee Lewis, singin’ Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On! There were no sightings of Michael Oher (Ravens OT, and story line behind The Blind Side). I also had to do a double take, I thought I saw Elvis at “Eddy’s Ice Cream,” but no it was just a fat woman in sequins. She was no King! Even though I am rushing, on this weekend, it is kinda strange and surreal knowing that I am in a city that on April 4th, 1968 hosted the tragic assassination of one the greatest leaders this country has ever seen, another King.

 

As many school age kids and government workers get the day off, many forget that on Monday we honor the life, and birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Born on January 15, 1929. Dr. King was one the leaders of civil change that many individuals of all colors are reaping the benefit from (and many are still fighting for).

This Monday January 16 is more than a 3 day weekend, more than celebrating a color of skin (which by the way I believe in EQUALITY NOT SPECIAL RIGHTS), and more than just another day in dreary O-H-I-O.

Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, his dream ultimately was for a better community where EVERYONE can strive for and reach for their own individual dreams. With that said, CELEBRATE this weekend. Do something for the betterment of OUR community. Find a way to do something for someone else this weekend or find a charity/organization that you can give your time or money to better someone’s life…and their own dream!

Dr. King Quotes that we can all use to better ourselves and our community, regardless of the color of any of our skin.
A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

A lie cannot live.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

A man can’t ride your back unless it’s bent.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

A man who won’t die for something is not fit to live.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

A right delayed is a right denied.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

A riot is the language of the unheard.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

All progress is precarious, and the solution of one problem brings us face to face with another problem.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

The day after MLK Day is Tuesday, 1-17-12 known as the Most Depressing Day of the year. This is from Cliff Arnall, from The University of Cardiff Wales. I will NOT go into why he says that…why? CAUSE IT DOES NOT MATTER! There are a LOT or reasons this day can and will suck (you can fill in your own reasons). WE ALL NEED TO FIND OUR OWN HAPPINESS IN EVERYDAY EVENTS NO MATTER WHAT NEGATIVE ISSUES WE HAVE OR ARE FACING!

Write this down and put somewhere where you will see first thing in the morning…

Dear sadness, save it, not having (insert issues here) today. SINCERELY (You’re Name-someone who is going to have a GREAT DAY!)

 

So yes I am having a GREAT DAY, even though not all is going great, and I may be a lil under the weather, and there are some travel related issues. BUT I AM CHOOSING TO MAKE IT A GREAT DAY, I am choosing to be happy! I am choosing to escape the daily grind and find my own paradise where my traveling pirate feet are searching for adventure while relaxing on a beach in my “Old Blue Chair.”

 

There’s a blue rocking chair
Sittin in the sand
Weathered by the storms and well oiled hands
It sways back and forth with the help of the winds,
Seems to always be there, like an old trusted friend

I’ve read a lot of books,
Wrote a few songs
Looked at my life where it’s goin, where it’s gone
I’ve seen the world through a bus windshield, but nothing compares
To the way that I see it,
to the way that I see it,
to the way that I see it when I sit in that old blue chair

From that chair I’ve caught a few fish and some rays
And I’ve watched boats sail in and out of cinnamon bay
I let go of a lover that took a piece of my heart
I prayed many times for forgiveness and a brand new start

I’ve read a lot of books,
Wrote a few songs
Looked at my life where it’s goin, where it’s gone
I’ve seen the world through a bus windshield, but nothing compares
To the way that I see it, to the way that I see it,
to the way that I see it when I sit in
that old blue chair

That chair was my bed one New Year’s Night
When I passed out from too much Cruzan and Diet
And woke up to a hundred mosquito bites,
I swear got ’em all sittin right there
In that old blue chair

There’s a blue rockin chair
Sittin’ in the sand
Weathered by the storms and well oiled hands

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3-_omoYPsI&ob=av2e
This song always takes me to a place in my mind where I need to escape. While there is an Ole blue chair that I like to sit on a bar in Naples Florida, currently I am running past many of my own “Old Blue Chair’s” as I run through the airport, before I finally get to sit on my “Old Blue Chair” that is more grey than blue, and must be in the “upright position” before we can taxi to the next port.

 

My blue chair is like anyone’s…it can be anything we want! This is a place where we can take shelter (from anything), relax, remember the past, look out on the ocean of the future, or in my case see the world pass by as I sit here. My chair might be like others or completely different, someone else’s may be green. For another it is the slopes of the Alps being in direct contrast to mine on a beach. Whatever the case, if your day is going great enjoy it, if your day is going bad…curl up in your own “Old Blue Chair” and find your own vacation, no matter how short and even if…just in our minds.

 
Well, my Old Blue Chair needs the tray table up, and locked into the upright position, next stop La La Land. Remember the reason we have this long weekend to enjoy our own Blue Chairs.

 

 

OCCUPY:
Last week while in New York I visited “Occupy Wall Street.” We did have a hard time finding the park where they were, until I saw a white male in his late 20’s. He had a longer beard and with matching hair, wore a “northface” jacket along with his camo pants. Sticking out from his jacket were a pair of “Beats by Dr. Dre” headphones. As soon as I saw this young man, I knew we were finally headed in the right direction. While there I was amazed that in direct conflict with the National Media, there was only 12 people there. 11 were holding signs and chatting with each other (BTW the signs made no sense what so ever), and the other person was a homeless guy with a cat in his jacket begging for change while rolling a joint. With that said…I have seen firsthand that “Occupy” is nothing more than a news piece and I will not need to mention it again. In the words of the REAL 99% “Occupy a Job” (and take a shower?).

NEW YEAR’s RESOLUTIONS:

How are your New Year diet plans going? According to ‘Men’s Health’ these are 8 Foods You Should Eat Every Day.

With EAT THIS, NOT THAT!,you’re armed with the info you need to make smart choices. But how can you crank it up a notch? How can you make good nutrition as certain as death, taxes, and The Fast and the Furious spinoffs? Here’s the simple answer: Just eat these eight foods–along with a little protein such as salmon, turkey, or lean beef–every day. And relax.
* Spinach

“Today” show airs 60 years of success
In 60 years, television has gone from black-and-white to color, rabbit ears to satellites, analog to digital and now the iPad. Through all that, one TV show has remained much the same, which seems fitting given its name, “Today.”

This week, NBC’s “Today” show is celebrating 60 years on U.S. airwaves since its inception on January 14, 1952, when Dave Garroway introduced viewers to the morning news, talk and entertainment program.

It spawned copycat programs, made stars of co-hosts such as Jane Pauley, Katie Couric and Matt Lauer, and put weather men like Al Roker on the map. TV has never been the same, experts say.

“The ‘Today’ show created a template that everyone is still using a half-century later,” said Bob Thompson, Television and Pop Culture Professor at Syracuse University.

ENTERTAINMENT:
If Marky Mark Can Do It, Taylor Swift Has It In The Bag: The Best Singers-Turned-Actors

News that our favorite cardigan sweater enthusiast Taylor Swift has been offered the role of Eponine in “King’s Speech” Oscar winner Tom Hooper’s big screen musical adaptation of the classic Broadway show/Victor Hugo novel “Les Miserables,” co-starring acting A-listers Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, has everyone in the MTV Newsroom in a tizzy.

If she chooses to take the role, will she be any good? We reached out to fans, who seem to want to give the Speak Now singer the benefit of the doubt, and personally think the country-pop superstar will do just fine in the role (can’t you just hear her singing “On My Own” already?), but every time a singer puts on the acting cap the critics come out with their pitchforks to proclaim that the odds are against her and most singers make for pretty crappy actors.

MUSIC:
What Is the Great Mistake Lurking in ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’?
Check a map, Steve Perry!

Ever since 1998, when The Wedding Singer first resurrected Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’”, the 1981 arena-rock anthem has achieved pop-culture permanence, whether soundtracking The Sopranos final scene, becoming synonymous with Glee, scoring a thousand flash mobs, or being piped into every professional sports arena in the land. With nearly 4.5 million digital units sold, it’s the most downloaded twentieth-century track in the history of counting such things. Jonathan Cain’s unmistakable opening piano riff reflexively inspires people all across this nation to pump their fists … although there is one spot where the arms always collectively falter, even if for just a moment: Southeastern Michigan. For nearly 31 years, this flash of distracting cognitive dissonance has struck each time Steve Perry’s bright tenor lands on the iconic but geographically flawed second line: “just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit.” Because, as anyone with a tie to the Motor City knows, South Detroit doesn’t exist, either as a term of art or a geographical locale.

BOOKS:

First lady denies book’s portrayal of her as forceful
First lady Michelle Obama is challenging assertions that she has imposed her will on White House aides and says people have inaccurately tried to portray her as “some kind of angry black woman.”

Obama told CBS News that she hasn’t read New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor’s new book that characterizes her as a behind-the-scenes force whose strong views often draw her into conflict with President Barack Obama’s top advisers.

“I never read these books,” she told CBS’s Gayle King in an interview broadcast Wednesday. “So I’ve just gotten in the habit of not reading other people’s impressions of people.”
In the book, Michelle Obama is said to have occasionally bristled at some of the demands and constraints of life in the White House.

Iran Sentences Former U.S. Marine To Death, Accused Him Of Spying
An American man has been sentenced to death in Iran after a court there convicted him of working for the CIA and going to the Persian nation to spy.
The family of Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, a 28-year-old former U.S. Marine, says he was in Iran to visit his grandmothers.

According to Iran’s state-run Press TV, “the verdict was issued by Tehran’s Revolution Court on Monday after the defendant was found guilty of collaboration with the US government and its intelligence agency, the CIA, against the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

The Associated Press reports that Hekmati was born in Arizona, graduated from high school in Michigan and was an Arabic translator while in the Marines. The wire service adds that “his family is of Iranian origin. His father, a professor at a community college in Flint, Mich., has said his son is not a CIA spy and was visiting his grandmothers in Iran when he was arrested.”

“On Dec. 18,” the AP adds, “Iran’s state TV broadcast video of Hekmati delivering a purported confession in which he said he was part of a plot to infiltrate Iran’s Intelligence Ministry. … It is not clear exactly when he was arrested. Iranian news reports have said he was detained in late August or early September.”

YOU DA MAN:

Bungee jumper survives fall after cord snaps A 22-year-old tourist in Africa who was looking to start 2012 with a memorable experience ended up having a close call.

Bungee jumper Erin Langworthy was 365 feet in the air when the unthinkable happened. Her bungee cord snapped sending her plummeting head-first into the crocodile-infested waters of the Zambezi River, on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

With her legs still tied and a broken collarbone, she was pulled downstream towards the raging rapids. Somehow, the Australian young woman managed to keep her head above water and swim to some rocks near the riverbank to wait to be rescued.

“They put me on my back, and all the water I inhaled meant I couldn’t breathe. They rolled me to my side, and I coughed out water and blood,” Langworthy said.
Langworthy told Nine Network television news Sunday that she blacked out briefly when she hit the river on Dec. 31.

“I felt like I’d been slapped all over,” the 22-year-old from Perth said. “You get sucked under and then you pop up so it’s very disorienting — I didn’t know which was up or down.”
She said the trailing cord repeatedly snagged, so she “had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface.”

The 22-year-old spent a week in the hospital but amazingly suffered no major injuries.
The jump from the Victoria Falls Bridge is operated by Safari Par Excellence, whose website describes the bungee experience as “111 meters (365 feet) of pure Adrenalin!”

WHAT THE HE**?:
Tax gap: IRS comes up $385 billion short
Close to 15% of federal taxes — or $385 billion — went unpaid in 2006, according to new estimates by the IRS.

That’s the net tax gap number — meaning what didn’t get paid even after the $65 billion the IRS managed to collect through audits.

And it’s the closest proxy policymakers have to the country’s annual revenue shortfall, said Mark Luscomb, the principal federal tax analyst at CCH, a tax information publisher.
What’s driving the shortfall? A whopping 84% of the total tax gap is due to underreporting of income by corporations, small businesses and individuals.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?:
A former Smoothie King employee accused of stealing two smoothies from the store was summoned to court only to have her case thrown out, 10TV’s Danielle Elias reported on Tuesday.

Kaitlyn Barrow said that she received a letter that summoned her to court based on $8.78 worth of smoothies she was accused of stealing.

Barrows said that she did not steal the smoothies and called the entire ordeal a “mess,” Elias reported.

Barrows’ attorney, Darrin Leist, said that he thought he case was “absurd.”

Buffett to Republicans: if you pay, so will I
Warren Buffett is willing to put his money where his mouth is, if only congressional Republicans would join him.

The American billionaire investor, in the new issue of Time magazine, says he would donate $1 to paying down the national debt for every dollar donated by a Republican in Congress. The only exception is Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell – for whom Buffett said he would go $3-to-$1.

The idea stems from a New York Times opinion piece Buffett wrote last August in which he said the rich ought to pay more taxes. It sparked an instant controversy, with some Washington conservatives calling on the 81-year-old “Oracle of Omaha” to voluntarily pay extra.

Daily News Diet & Fitness Hotline pros: Find some-buddy to be your support system
Nutrition & lifestyle experts offer more tricks to keep trim

Now that the Daily News Diet & Fitness Hotline has begun dishing out tricks to cinching your waist, make sure these healthy lifestyle changes stick by setting up a support system.
It doesn’t take a village, just a friend.

“When you don’t feel like you’re alone, you have much more incentive,” says Sanda Dubrov, certified health and diet coach.
“You’re not going to be happy doing a 10-mile run by yourself, but if someone is waiting for you and running with you, it becomes an easier experience,” she explains. “It’s the same thing with eating — find someone at work or in a Meetup group online to eat healthy with you.”

 

There’s just two days left to tap into our get-slim social network at (212) 210-2044 or DietHotline@nydailynews.com from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

Once you’ve got your team of weight-loss buddies together, map out a plan to keep you on the straight and narrow.

 

“Make meals, snacks and fitness a part of your schedule,” suggests Carolyn Brown, a registered dietitian at Foodtrainers.

 

You wouldn’t miss a business meeting you’ve put down in your planner, so why miss taking care of yourself?

 

“People who schedule exercise and regular meals stick to it more than people who don’t,” says Brown.

People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing. – Dale Carnegie

Two of America’s finest female entertainers; Dolly Parton, and Queen Latifah team up in the funny and heartfelt, ‘Joyful Noise,’ rated “PG-13.”

One of my favorite Disney movies (maybe cause I can relate?) ‘Beauty and the Beast’ returns to the Big Screen, this time “Be Our Guest” in “3D”

DVD:
Warning Chick Flick!!! ‘What’s Your Number?’ rated “R.” Starring Anna Faris , Chris Evans , and Joel McHale

My pick of the week, ‘A Mile in His Shoes.’ This made for TV movie stars Dean Cain as a minor league baseball manager who discovers an autistic, sheltered young man, who makes his way to minor league baseball. The acting is horrible, but the story line is very good.

One of the best movies of 2011, ‘Moneyball’ starring Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill , Philip Seymour Hoffman , Robin Wright Penn , and Stephen Bishop. This story based on the real life management of the Oakland A’s Baseball team is rated “PG-13.”
