Staying warm on a cold plane thanx to a lesson learned, and some Buffet on the headphones

GREETINGS FROM 27,000 feet in the cold, frigid, air. By this I don’t mean it looks cold out the window…this freaking plane is FREEZING!

 

In addition to being cold, I am also a lil perturbed, cause the “Wi Fi” sticker on the cabin must be a “typo” cause there was no internet on the flight and I am being forced to type from The Airport of The Twin Cities of Minneapolis. I wonder if I will be reimbursed for no internet-which I pre-paid for. OF COURSE NOT, cause I am the customer, who would want to take care of a customer!?!?!

 

I know that myself, and the entire crew(s) I work with take care of clients! Speaking of that, it is National Thank a DJ day, so please call into radio, send an email or text, maybe tonight in the club…thank a dj.

 

Anyway there are a couple people WHO DO take care of their clients. If you are looking to up any New Year’s resolutions of fitness, or increase whatever you are doing, or even tweak your program…even if just wanna get off a fat a** see my buddies Todd Cunningham, and Dinos Angeles. Both are at the Aussie Fitness (Formerly Lifestyle Family Fitness, and prior to that, California Fitness). While Todd is at The Reynoldsburg location, and Dinos is on Fishinger, both of them and their staffs can help you meet any goal. Dinos has been training me off and on for a few years, and is currently training me for The Arnold Pump & Run (on March). My fitness levels have never been so high, and in all honesty I am seeing a very good change in my physique. More important, I feel good, inside…and out! You should see either one of them.

 

In the entertainment world. I have a buddy looking for an MC to work with him at a nightly bar/dance club. If anyone is looking to make a couple extra bucks having fun in the nightclub industry please let me know sosaudio@yahoo.com

I will put you in touch with him.

 

For ANYONE in a Bands AND DJ’s. I am looking for a large number of bands, and DJ’s to play an early morning event on Saturday May 5 from (approx 8am-Noon). There is pay involved, and minimal to no work with exposure to over 15,000 people!!!

 

So here I am again on another road trip. I love being in the air, and on the road. I get to (in some way) live the lifestyle of all those Rock & Rollers I wanted to be like (now with the exception of some of their lifestyles). I get to not only see some amazing sights but also meet and experience a great number of people. Some are great, some suck, some are real a**holes. BUT ALL TEACH something.

 

As I was in line for TSA this morning, the line was moving great and I thought “this will be a breeze, I will be able to sit down early, relax, get some work done.” But after 10 minutes in line, I found…I WAS WRONG!”

 

There was a group of people 3 adults, 2 males, 1 female. I thought maybe a family with an older son. I was right, but older only in physical stature. The young man was just chatting along, and talking to everyone in a very LOUD and friendly nature. He was saying hello and letting anyone (and any TSA agent) who would listen where he was going. He was a very outgoing and nice guy, and this really PI**ED ME OFF!!! I mean come on…he just wants to say hello to everyone, and take away from my time of relaxing!?!? His “parents” were not even trying to hustle him along. What is wrong with them?

 

Then the young man turned around to say hello to me (in my sunglasses, sleeveless shirt, and skull cap looking as “thug” as I am able to-usually to keep people from talking to me). I was ready to hit him with some snide remark and tell him to “hurry up”…until I saw his physical appearance. The young man had Downs Syndrome.

 

This young man was “functional,” but did have some characteristics of having an extra chromosome.  I was very taken back, and even somwhat ashamed that I wanted him to “hurry up.” Now yea I wanted to get though the line, but this kid started talking to me. Telling me where he was going (I still don’t know-was so taken back by him I kinda didn’t listen). I do know he is going through Minneapolis cause he is on my flight now, he is in the back of the plane. How do I know?…HE IS PLAYING ANGRY BIRDS, yelling at screen, and DID NOT TURN OFF THE GAME VOLUME-but I can deal with it from the lesson learned. Besides I have Jimmy Buffet on in my headphones and I, for the moment, am in paradise on a warm beach with my feet in the sand-even if my feet are FREEZING on this flight! This “young man” won me over, it could be because he was so loud it was either get pi**ed off or just let him win, it could be his comment “you have big arms,” but mainly he was nice (even if in a having a pet rabbit and hugging too tight way).

 

This kid was so nice, and engaging that he won over EVERYONE around him. TSA was chatting it up with him, other passengers were talking to him…I even found myself, helping with his bags. This “delay” was a great way to start my weekend, and trip, and a great lesson learned.

 

I wondered what it would have been like if he had not had that “extra chromosome.” I wondered if he was not “special” if I would have opened up to his friendliness. I wondered how much happier we all could be if we were all that nice, and just plain happy as him. In my desire to better myself in all areas, I thought for a minute “why can’t I have that extra chromosome.”

 

So my new buddy and I walked to our gate (maybe we were on the same intellectual level?) and he started running and yelling. Now this kinda freaked me out, but I just kinda walked slower, and hugged the wall.

 

He ran to the gate to meet up with some other folks he seemed to know. But before he got there he was greeted first. Halfway between this screaming, yelling, and running  young man and the gate, he was greeted by a winy, blond with pretty brown eyes and was barking loudly.

 

He was meeting with some other “special folks” and one had a assistance dog. The dog was very happy to see him (MAYBE as happy as he was to see her?), and they were loud, and not really appropriate for an airport…and it was AWESOME!

 

He introduced me to his “friend Daisy” who looked an awful lot like The World Famous PepperDog. She was very friendly, and I have not seen Pepper since the 4th of this month. I also had a new “friend” in Daisy and maybe found myself acting a lil bit inappropriate for an airport like my “special” new friend, and ya know what…it was ok!

Have a great weekend, find a way to see the “specialness” in everyone, not those who you can just “tell.” We all have something special even without that extra chromosome.

 

FYI…I get Pepper Back on Tuesday!!!

 

Prior to this trip I have been very involved with the SOPA, and PIPA bills. Even if you are not on “the internet” much, or if not in the entertainment arena, and even if you don’t do research…please educate yourself on these bills that are not only a form of censorship, but also a form of OVER GOVERNMENT! Don’t let ‘Em “Tread on You!”

 

 

Google

“Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.

The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.”

Stop Online Piracy Act
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“To promote prosperity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and innovation by combating the theft of U.S. property, and for other purposes.” —H.R. 3261

The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is a law (bill) of the United States proposed in 2011 to fight online trafficking in copyrighted intellectual property and counterfeit goods. Proposals include barring advertising networks and payment facilities from conducting business with allegedly infringing websites, barring search engines from linking to the sites, and requiring Internet service providers (ISP) to block access to the sites. The bill would criminalize the streaming of such content, with a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
User-content websites such as YouTube would be greatly affected, and concern has been expressed that they may be shut down if the bill becomes law. Opponents state the legislation would enable law enforcement to remove an entire domain due to something posted on a single blog, arguing that an entire online community could be punished for the actions of a tiny minority. In a 1998 law, copyright owners are required to request the site to remove the infringing material within a certain amount of time. SOPA would bypass this “safe harbor” provision by placing the responsibility for detecting and policing infringement onto the site itself.
Lobbyists for companies that rely heavily on revenue from intellectual property copyright state it protects the market and corresponding industry, jobs, and revenue. The US president and legislators suggest it may kill innovation. Representatives of the American Library Association state the changes could encourage criminal prosecution of libraries. Other opponents state that requiring search engines to delete a domain name begins a worldwide arms race of unprecedented censorship of the Web and violates the First Amendment.
A number of protest actions were organized, including petition drives and boycotts of companies that support the legislation. On January 18, English Wikipedia and several other internet companies coordinated a service blackout to protest SOPA and PIPA.

When is a good time to stop saying “Happy New Year”?

This professor believes that texting while in a lecture hall is rude. Therefore, instead of letting it spread and become a class-wide problem, this wise educator has developed a fail-proof plan to nip it in the bud.

MUSIC:
Never-Before-Seen Van Halen! ‘You Really Got Me’ Acoustic
We’re barely into January, and already 2012 is a momentous year for fans of classic rockers/Hall of Famers Van Halen. Not only did the band announce a reunion tour, the guys also confirmed they’re in the studio working on their first new album with iconic original frontman David Lee Roth in nearly 30 years.
Now, here’s a cherry on the sundae for all the VH fans out there: A never-before-seen video of all four members of the band performing an acoustic version of their hit “You Really Got Me.”

This tune, of course, is the band’s well-loved cover of the Kinks classic, which VH adopted for their 1978 self-titled debut. It’s been more than three decades since the original came out–but this is the first time VH has filmed an acoustic version of it.

BOOKS: Great for starting off 2012

‘Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success’

Napoleon Hill wrote this book in 1938, just after publication of his all-time bestseller, Think and Grow Rich. This powerful tale has never been published, considered too controversial by his family and friends.

Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Napoleon Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching personal goals: fear, procrastination, anger, and jealousy, as tools of the Devil. These hidden methods of control can lead us to ruin, and Hill reveals the seven principles of good that will allow us to triumph over them and succeed.

MILITARY:
From Rep Allen West

“ I’d like to dig them up, and piss on them again.” Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sends THE WEEKLY STANDARD an email commenting on the Marines’ video, and has given us permission to publish it. “I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu . Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah. “All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq ?

 

“The Marines were wrong. Give them a maximum punishment under field grade level Article 15 (non-judicial punishment), place a General Officer level letter of reprimand in their personnel file, and have them in full dress uniform stand before their Battalion, each personally apologize to God, Country, and Corps videotaped and conclude by singing the full US Marine Corps Hymn without a teleprompter. “As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.”

-AND THAT! Is the ONLY reason I am supporting the Gingrich/West ticket. #causeTedsaidso

 

Please support this Marine by going to his facebook page

Josh Sams is a Marine Scout Sniper that was wounded by an IED and rendered a double amputee (above the knee) in Afghanistan while conducting operations. Josh is very well liked by many people. This Marine is a Marine to emulate. Josh is a hero amongst us all, and needs our support. Let’s give prayers and support for him. America needs to give back to this Marine, for he is the reason why we have freedoms in America. Thank you and Semper Fi.

POLITICS:
Rick Perry drops his presidential bid
Rick Perry on Thursday dropped his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, throwing his support behind former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

“I have come to the conclusion that there is no viable path forward for me in the 2012 campaign,” Perry said at a press conference in North Charleston, South Carolina. “I know when it’s time to make a strategic retreat.”

Those who are left (well on the Right but still in it)
In order? Romney (only one who can win?), Gingrich (too much baggage?-Career Politician…BUT HAS ALLEN WEST!) with Rick Santorum gaining speed. Paul has cooled off-He has great ideers, however he communicates them like a mad man (and he resembles that cult leader, Applewhite, from a few years ago)

 
BUISNESS/PRODUCT/IDEER OF WEEK:
…but not sure I want that “Kreepy King” showing up at my door

Burger King tries home delivery

The door-to-door Whopper may soon be on the menu.
Burger King, the No. 2 burger chain, has quietly begun testing home delivery of its burgers, fries and other sandwiches since fall at four of its restaurants in the greater Washington, D.C., area, with an eye on expanding beyond that.

Should home delivery catch on for the burger giants — as it has for the pizza kingpins — it could be an industry changer. But it runs counter to long-held consumer perception that fast-food burgers and fries travel poorly — and don’t warm up well in the microwave. It also would require millions of hungry folks to change their at-home eating habits. “There are some real food-quality issues here,” says Ron Paul, president of research firm Technomic. “But there’s no question that consumer expectation for having things delivered has risen.”

YOU DA MAN:

Coast Guard Captain Gregorio De Falco

Italy enthralled by ship’s tale of two captains

The Coast Guard officer who ordered the captain of the capsized Italian cruise ship to go back aboard unwittingly became an instant hero on Wednesday, credited with saving the national honor on one of its darkest nights.

Italy has become enthralled with the tale of two captains.
One is Coast Guard Captain Gregorio De Falco, who furiously ordered the skipper of the Costa Concordia to return to his ship and oversee the rescue operations.
The other is Captain Francesco Schettino – whom newspapers have branded a coward for fleeing in the face of adversity and who is now under house arrest, accused of multiple manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship.
“Listen Schettino, perhaps you have saved yourself from the sea but I will make you look very bad. I will make you pay for this. Go on board (Expletive!)” De Falco yelled at Schettino during a 4-minute radio exchange made public on Tuesday.
The Italian word De Falco used, “cazzo” in Italian, is slang for the male sexual organ but it is commonly used to emphasize something, equivalent to “Go on board, damn it.”

The imperative phrase in Italian — “Vada a bordo, cazzo!” — was already on T-shirts by Wednesday morning.

Diabetics call Paula Deen a hypocrite for hiding disease while promoting sugar-heavy foods

Angry diabetics are calling celebrity chef Paula Deen a hypocrite, both for hiding her disease while promoting fatty, sugar-heavy foods and for partnering with a drug company that provides relief for diabetics.

Deen, host of the Food Network’s “Paula’s Best Dishes,” confirmed on Tuesday’s “Today Show” that she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, the most common form of the disease, three years ago, even as she continued to promote such dishes as “Chocolate Cheese Fudge” and “Sausage Pancake Egg Sandwiches” on her program. She also announced her latest venture—a partnership with diabetes drug maker Novo Nordisk.

Follow up from my friend Lesley

The media is on my last nerve with their constant Paula Dean bashing! People act like she has eaten nothing but doughnut hamburgers and drank nothing mayonnaise and butter smoothies her entire life and that because she has a TV show she is somehow ethically and professionally bound to disclose her private medical information. She has a TV show, folks. You watch it so they keep airing it! That does not mean that she eats the foods she cooks on her show three meals a day. Don’t pretend Paula is to blame for fat Americans. Is there nothing to be said for personal choice and what we choose to put into our mouths? She does not have to tell you that she has diabetes just because she is in the business of food just like Marlboro and Budweiser don’t have to disclose when their execs are diagnosed with lung cancer or cirrhosis of the liver. You knew eating hit fat foods could cause medical problems before Paula Dean came along and you’ll know after she is long gone. Take responsibility for your own actions and stop pointing fingers!
For me? I think Paula Deen is in the wrong, and she has brought this on herself. And in turn created a smoke and mirrors image for American’s to eat whatever they want, develop a disease such as Diabetes, and go on meds. Eating fairly healthy, in moderation, and some type of exercise could go much further in prevention than a pill can for management.

 
WHAT THE HE**?:
Obama administration rejects Keystone pipeline permit
Olstein Capital Management CEO Bob Olstein on the impact of Obama’s decision to reject the Keystone Pipeline on energy investments, plus the outlook for Intel.
The decision does not necessarily kill the project. The State Department said the denial “does not preclude any subsequent permit application” — and within hours pipeline company TransCanada announced that it would reapply for a permit.

But the decision at least delays the project, one that unions and GOP lawmakers alike said would be a boon for job creation as well as energy security.
“Until this pipeline is constructed, the U.S. will continue to import millions of barrels of conflict oil from the Middle East and Venezuela and other foreign countries,” TransCanada said in a statement Wednesday, saying it is “disappointed” by the administration’s call. “Thousands of jobs continue to hang in the balance if this project does not go forward.”

Amateur cinematography aside, this is an oddly compelling watch. Textbook storytelling, actually. The tension slowly builds—A hero’s quest, will he actually do it? I don’t think he’s going to do it—rising action—he’s getting ready, he may actually do it— climax—oh my god he did it!—and then, denouement.

BUCKEYES:

Meyer fills out Ohio State staff with coaches that have Buckeye State connections
Coach Urban Meyer was the right choice for Ohio State as its football program looks to bounce back from a down year plagued by scandals.

Meyer has ties to the program and has won a pair of national titles, he has also assembled a staff that will have no problem selling the virtues of playing for the Buckeyes.

As National Signing Day approaches, Meyer and his assistants are selling recruits on Ohio State with the help of first-hand experience.

Meyer has rounded out his staff in Columbus with five assistants from other programs. Of those, four have ties to the Buckeye state and an understanding of what it means to play football at Ohio State.

FINANCE/BUISNESS:
Exclusive: Buffett Set to Match Congressman’s Donation to Debt
Billionaire Warren Buffett says he will match donations made by a Republican Congressman to cut the nation’s $15.2 trillion debt.
Last week, Buffett challenged the GOP to a $1 for $1 donation match to cut the debt — and offered to match $3 for every $1 Senate GOP minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) gave.

In a letter FOX Business has obtained, Buffett writes “he is delighted to match” Republican Virginia Rep. Scott Rigell’s 2011 and 2012 donation, which is about $49,000 total, and that he “plans to send along my match to the Treasury around April 20th, after I’ve had a chance to hear from everyone” in Congress.

INSPIRATION:
“You may not do everything right, but God sees your heart.”- Joyce Meyer
SUCCESS:
“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”-David Brinkley

 

“You are rewarded in public for what you have intensely practiced and refined in private.”-Tony Robbins

 

QUOTES:

“There is no real excellence in all this world which can be separated from right living.”- David Starr Jordan

“I know you can write me a letter of recommendation and make it sound good…I read your weekly e-mails”-VL

CLOSING:
Any words you speak have a frequency, and the moment you speak them they are released into the Universe. The law of attraction responds to all frequencies, and so it is also responding to the words that you speak… The law is impersonal, and simply matches your frequency. Do you see how important it is for you to speak strongly about what you want, and not to use strong words about what you don’t want? -The Secret Daily Teachings

IN THEATERS:
My pick of the week, ‘Red Tails’ is the story of an amazing group of courage, and determination from the experimental African America Pilots of the Tuskegee training program. THIS IS A MUST SEE, rated “PG-13.” I have had the honor of meeting a few of the young men (then-hero’s now!) and this is an amazing story!

 

A very moving story, that still opens up many scars, ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’ follows the story of a father and son around the events of 9-11, starring Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock. “Loud and Close” is rated “PG-13.”

 

The action packed ‘Haywire’ stars Michael Douglas, Ewan McGregor,and Channing Tatum and is rated “R.”

The beautiful, Kate Beckinsale is back in the sci fi vampire franchise, ‘Underworld Awakening,’ rated “R.”

DVD:
MY PICK OF THE WEEK, ‘Courageous’ is a must see for any dad, any guy, and any family. It will truly make you look at things, family, jobs, and life a lot differently.

 

A great movie following a political campaign, ‘The Ides of March’ rated “R” stars Ryan Gosling , George Clooney , Philip Seymour Hoffman , Paul Giamatti , and Marisa Tomei.
Even though it is kinda “artsy,” a movie I really liked, ‘Killing Bono’ rated “R.”  Plot Summary and Details

The action flick for the ‘tweens’ (or let’s hope…cause it is horrible) ‘Abduction’ rated “PG-13.”
