Celebrate survival, and acts of kindess-EVERYDAY!

GREETINGS FROM 13,000 feet somewhere over Tennessee as I head down to the ATL for the weekend. I am a lil sore, but feeling great while typing this, as I just had an AMAZING workout at Sweatbox (935 King Ave, in Grandview next to King Ave 5) prior to arriving at the airport. Stop in and chat with Dinos or Billy for personal training rates-it is well worth it, I am ready to SHATTER my personal best! When done…stop in and say hi to Nick, Joel and the rest of the crew at King Ave 5 for dinner or lunch.

 

This is gonna’ be a fun weekend as I head to Atlanta to not only spend some time in the worst airport in the world, but also hang out on Peachtree Street-an area that my hero Jimmy Buffett, sings about on “Feeding Frenzy Live.” So it should be a busy and fun weekend, but let’s hope it is not for the Atlanta PD, as I am meeting up with my Middle School and High School buddy Jeff.

 

Jeff and I had many runs on the East Side of Nerk on our skateboards, and well…we were kinda known for “allowing” trouble to find us (I was always the good one though!). Will be good to see him and work this weekend-while staying out of jail?

 

I am working this weekend AND it has been a busy week as well. In addition to my training for Mar 5th, we booked a LOT of events for 2012, and I have been working with M3Ssports booking entertainment for The Cap City Half Marathon.

 

I am looking for 35-50 Bands, DJ’s, and Entertainers to fill over 13.1 miles for the Capital City Half Marathon on Saturday May 5th from (approx 8am-Noon). This is not only a GREAT TIME, but also a chance to get yourself in front of over 12,500 folks and name in 15,000 race packets…and make a couple bucks at an hour of the day you would not be making a dime, all while supporting some folks “running down a dream.”

 

For more information for yourself or band/DJ, or if you know of a person who may be interested please contact matt@m3ssports.com

 

This week we some celebrated Valentine’s Day; A day that is made up by Hallmark for some, celebrated by many, and hated by a few. For me? I really don’t mind either way…if you care or love someone you do so EVERYDAY in thoughts and actions, even if they are “with” you or not.

 

HOWEVER I will say being removed as a friend on facebook also removes the awkwardness of “do I send flowers or not.”

 

True love goes beyond facebook “status” or even life itself-This reminded me of a story that was shared this week;

“So today I was in Hallmark buying my mom a Happy Birthday card when I noticed this old man standing in front of the Valentines card section contemplating which one to get. I decide to go over and I ask him “Are you getting a Valentine’s Day for your wife?” in which he replies ‘No my wife died 3 years ago from breast cancer but I still buy her roses and a card and bring them to her grave to prove to her that she was the only one that will ever have my heart’ -Ravi Patel

 

That guy knows love, and while his beloved is gone…he is a TRUE SURVIVOR!

 

Last Saturday I had the chance to visit the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial. In addition to those who lost their lives that day, the memorial paid tribute to those no longer here, however, there was also a tribute to those who survived. I have visited many memorials and have never seen a “Survivor Wall.” How cool is this? It is easy to pay tribute to those no longer in our lives, but how often do we pay tribute to those who faced, and overcame adversary?  You know those who looked hard times, pain, failure, or even death in the eye…and are here TODAY to carry on (living with those horrible memories). Those who live with what they have experienced and still fight the fight should celebrated for LIVING as much as the memories of those who are no longer here.

Another Survivor, and one of the dudes I really admire!!!

Former Red, current Ranger, and recovering addict, Josh Hamilton, has gone through many struggles, and encountered many “demons.” In the clip below he discusses his personal demons, struggles, and his faith in this interview with Pastor Robison
http://web.gbtv.com/media/video.jsp?content_id=20096257&topic_id=24584158&tcid=vpp_copy_20096257&v=3

 

This reminds me, not only that we DO mess up, however we cannot hang onto failure-but move on. Also the Josh Hamilton piece reminds me-pitchers and catchers report on MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20!!! Baseball season is HERE!!!

 

All has me contemplating…and reminded me of this song,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_i0yZTeTZ4Q

 

Gotta wonder how many times we did/do not live up to expectations others have on us, or even those we put on ourselves…also how about this? How many times in a given day do we BY FAR exceed any expectation, just through everyday LIVING?

 

On Friday we also celebrated “Random Act of Kindness Day.” Just like Valentine’s Day, or any day we should celebrate those who have overcome…why do we need one day of “random kindness?” Why can’t we strive to do something for someone else EVERYDAY?

 

This weekend, celebrate those you have loved, and those you love. Cherish those who you care about, and the memories of those no longer here. Take a moment to celebrate those who have and ARE overcoming some major issues-even yourself. And take a moment to do something for someone else, not just on Friday, but Saturday AND Sunday (hell how about everyday?)

THOUGHT(s) FOR THE WEEK:
No matter who you are or where you are, you can change your life with gratitude, but you must feel it with your whole heart and radiate it from every cell. Gratitude is not a mental exercise, and in fact, if you simply use your mind for gratitude it will have little or no power. True gratitude comes from your heart! You must think gratitude through your heart, speak gratitude through your heart, and feel it intensely in your heart. (From the Secret Scrolls by Rhonda Byrne)

 
SONG(s) FOR THE WEEK:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:
What do you need in order to keep moving forward? Start by checking your attitude. Don’t go around complaining or focused on the negative side of things. Put on an attitude of praise and thanksgiving. Thank God for making your crooked places straight! Keep your eyes on Him and follow Him forward into the path of victory! – Joel Osteen

MUST WATCH:

Young Girl Escapes Near Abduction Inside Store

Britney Baxter escaped near abduction by a man inside a Walmart store by doing what she learned in Stranger Danger class. It was a nightmare in the toy aisle as a stranger tries to kidnap a seven-year-old girl in a Walmart. But this brave kid fought back, kicking and screaming until the creep let her go and fled.
It happened to Britney Baxter in an Atlanta area Walmart. She had been taught what to do in Stranger Danger class in school.

“He just grabbed me and picked me up,” said Britney.

Her courageous fight against a grown man is making her a national hero.

Security expert Steve Kardian told INSIDE EDITION’s Megan Alexander that Britney did evertything exactly right.

Alexander asked, “How did this little girl perform? Did she do the right thing?”

“She did a great thing. It’s obvious she had some training. She did the exact right thing. Squiggle. He put her to the floor and once her feet hit the floor she started running,” said Kardian.
He showed INSIDE EDITION what every child in America should know.

Demonstrating with a child inside a store, Kardian said, “As she’s yelling, when I pick her up, she starts to squiggle and it makes me lose control of my arm, even though she’s not that heavy. As she drops to the ground, if she can, she runs. If she can’t, she drops down and puts her knees up to her chest and kicks.”

Police say the man caught on tape trying to kidnap Britany is Thomas Woods, who served seven years for manslaughter and was released from prison just four months ago. He claims it’s not him on the surveillance video.

A reporter asked Woods, “What happened in the store?”

“Nothing. I didn’t bother nobody. I was never there,” said Woods.

Britney was lucky. Other store surveillance cameras have captured haunting videos of abductions that ended tragically.

Surveillance video captured a man trying to abduct 7-year-old Britney Baxter from a Walmart store.

PASSING:
Whitney Houston: How Dolly Parton Song Landed on The Bodyguard Soundtrack
Co-Star and Producer Kevin Costner Insisted on Inclusion of “I Will Always Love You”-
Whitney Houston.

 

Dolly Parton was listening to her car radio the first time she heard Whitney Houston’s version of “I Will Always Love You,” a song actor and film producer Kevin Costner insisted she record for the 1992 film, The Bodyguard.

“They started out with it a cappella,” Parton said in 2011 when the bittersweet ballad grabbed the peak position on the CMT 40 Greatest Love Songs special. “And I thought, ‘That sounds familiar. … And it didn’t hit me. It was just one of those things where [you think], ‘What is that?’ And, then all the sudden, when she started singing, ‘I will always love you,’ I just about wrecked the car.”

Parton’s country hit became a signature song for Houston, who died Saturday (Feb. 11) in Los Angeles at age 48.

Houston’s dramatic rendition of “I Will Always Love You” sold more than 4 million singles and won two Grammys. The Bodyguard soundtrack sold 17 million copies.

Parton wrote the song while attempting to make a break from her role on Porter Wagoner’s syndicated television show. Even though she was determined to move on, Parton especially wanted to convey a message of gratitude in the song.

There is one “hell” of a game of baseball in heaven right now, thanx for the memories “Kid” you made me hop on the Mets bandwagon!

Gary Carter, Hall of Fame catcher, dies of brain cancer at 57

Even as the world watched the Grade 4 brain cancer wither his body, Gary Carter was still, and is always, Kid. It is a testament to Carter’s passion for the game, and for life, that the nickname that at times was applied derisively by crusty veterans ended up on his Hall of Fame plaque.
With his boyish enthusiasm, wide smile and constant hustle, Carter forged a 19-year career that included a memorable five-season stretch with the New York Mets. He died Thursday in Florida at 57, less than a year after being diagnosed with the disease.

What Lincoln Was Doing 150 Years Ago
Watching over two sick sons and dealing with the Civil War, it was not the happiest of birthdays.

 

Feb. 13 was the official observation of President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. However, he actually was born on Feb. 12, 1809, 203 years ago.

How did he spend his 53rd birthday? According to thelincolnlog.org, 150 years ago, Lincoln transmitted to Congress the treaty with King of Hanover for abolition of “Stade Dues” (tolls levied on vessels ascending the Elbe and passing the mouth of the Schwinge River). Abraham Lincoln to the Senate and House of Representatives

But he spent much of his time that day with his gravely ill son, Willie.
A few days earlier, the White House’s usual Saturday reception was cancelled because of Willie’s condition. By Monday, Feb. 10, Willie was reported much better but son, Tad, was thought to have contracted the same illness. The president did not attend to much of his public business schedule that day.

The country was one year into the Civil War.
A happy birthday it was not.

MUSIC:
Triumph, Tragedy Dominate Grammy Awards

The splintered music world truly coalesces only one night of 365 for the Grammy Awards, and this year was united in the triumph of recovered British soul singer Adele’s trophy haul and the tragedy of Whitney Houston’s death.

Adele swept the major honors of song, record and album of the year Sunday for her lost-love epic “21” and its driving single “Rolling in the Deep.” She picked up her final two awards after making her first public performance in months after being sidelined for throat surgery. Her total of six Grammys matched Beyonce for most ever by a female act.

After seeming almost sheepish in picking up some of the trophies (“This is ridiculous,” she said after winning record of the year), Adele’s tears flowed upon winning best album.

BOOKS:

‘We Can Do’ Moshe Kai Cavalin

A Fantastic Book for Pre-Teens, Teens, and Parents Who Want to Inspire Their Kids”-Dan Steinberg, CEO, TechProtege LLC
My favorite parts of the book are:
1) Moshe Kai describes how probably the single biggest key element in his tremendous successes is that when he chooses an endeavor– whether scuba diving, martial arts, or of course his math & physics classes– he puts his “whole heart” into it. Then he follows through with adequate time, planning, and effort.

2) MK describes the mind-boggling bureaucratic obstacles he faced, which was a remarkable “real-world” education in itself.

3) MK describes not a “lost childhood”, but rather a very happy childhood spent scuba diving with colorful fish and friendly dolphins, training martial arts in the park, and shared with a wonderful family. There were some heartbreaks and other mis-haps, as befalls pretty much everyone, but overall MK easily dispels his critics’ theories that his spectacular achievements must have caused some sort of “unhappy childhood”. Instead, MK describes great times that anyone would enjoy.

Finally, his purpose throughout the book– and even its title– is that lots more kids “can do” what Moshe Kai has done. On page 44, MK writes (sic) “I do not like to share my inner thoughts because they are the essence of my being…. I only expose my inner feelings with hope that I may lead some kids to see my success and believe that they can do the same or better. If one kid can accomplish it or go far beyond because my book, I will be overjoyed.”

I know for a fact that other kids can achieve what MK has done: that’s why I developed the “FromZeroToCalculus” ® System (website: FromZeroToCalculus.com), where rapid advancement is attainable.

Again, I highly recommend Moshe Kai’s book, “We Can Do”, about how he entered college at age 8 and graduated at age 11 with an Associate’s Degree Summa Cum Laude and a 4.0 GPA. Enjoy it, be inspired by it, and give copies to your friends and relatives!

MILITARY:
Complete Civil War submarine unveiled for first time

Confederate Civil War vessel H.L. Hunley, the world’s first successful combat submarine, was unveiled in full and unobstructed for the first time on Thursday, capping a decade of careful preservation.

“No one alive has ever seen the Hunley complete. We’re going to see it today,” engineer John King said as a crane at a Charleston conservation laboratory slowly lifted a massive steel truss covering the top of the submarine.

About 20 engineers and scientists applauded as they caught the first glimpse of the intact 42-foot-long (13-meter-long) narrow iron cylinder, which was raised from the ocean floor near Charleston more than a decade ago. The public will see the same view, but in a water tank to keep it from rusting.

POLITICS:
Thanks to Conservative ‘Issues,’ Obama Now Holds All The Cards

In a world where Tiger Woods can lose by eleven shots to his playing partner on a Sunday at Pebble Beach and where Joe Paterno can be fired via cell phone for the actions of a former assistant coach, almost anything previously “unthinkable” can indeed happen.  However, with that said, it is becoming increasingly difficult to see how President Barack Obama is not re-elected, potentially by a healthy margin.

This reality is not because of anything Obama has done to secure re-election, but rather because the Republican Party and the conservative movement have created a set of circumstances where the paths to defeating the president are now more difficult to find than an unemployed evangelical Christian in the South with a Mitt Romney bumper sticker on a foreign-made vehicle.

The clearest track to an Obama defeat since the primaries began has always been for Republicans to rally around Mitt Romney and then use his potential appeal to independent voters and unique connections to the key states of New Hampshire, Michigan, and Nevada to effectively block the president’s path to 270 Electoral College votes.

It is now abundantly clear that this scenario is not going to transpire.

Maine football coach resigns after accidentally posting naked photo of himself on Facebook

A longtime high school football coach in Maine has resigned after one of the more embarrassing and bizarre social media snafus in recent memory (if not of all time) when he accidentally posted a nude photo of himself on Facebook. The lewd photo was viewable by the general public and was recognized by a parent of a player on his football team, leading to the coach’s self-imposed departure.

WHAT THE HE**?:
Man Impersonating Animal Control Officer Attempts To Steal Dogs Two Hilltop residents said that they saw a man impersonating an animal control officer attempt to steal their dogs from their yard, 10TV News reported on Thursday.

According to Franklin County Animal Control, the man was wearing a dark uniform, carried a badge with a dog and cat in a white circle and drove a white vehicle.

Officials said that the man was not a deputy warden.

A representative from Animal Control said that the Capital Area Humane Society said that they had a similar incident in the Hilltop on Jan. 19, when one of their humane officers spoke to a pet owner who said a man wearing a green uniform visited her home twice to “check on the animals.”

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?:
Cheerleading coach removed after calling team ‘highfalutin heifers’

Of all the things a high school cheerleading coach should do, calling her charges “highfalutin heifers” isn’t one of them. In fact, the world can now rest assured that precisely such a claim can get a cheerleading coach taken away from the team she is supposed to lead.

Cheerleading Coach Calls Girls, “heifers” in Epic Rant – Watch more amazing videos here
As first reported by Houston TV network KPRC (and brought to Prep Rally’s attention by the folks at Larry Brown Sports), the Cypress Woods (Texas) High cheerleading coach is no longer in charge of the program after a recording emerged on which she called her team “highfalutin heifers.”

“Who do you think you all are?” the coach said in the recording. “Highfalutin heifers. You can just come and go as you please. Fire me!”

SPORTS:

According To New Tapes, Richard Nixon Tried To Screw NFL Fans Forever
It’s hard, in 2012, to imagine anyone being upset about Redskins games not airing on local television. Presumably it would be a treat for the long-suffering fans in DC.

But in 1972, back when all teams’ home games—even playoffs—were blacked out on their local stations, regardless of whether the games had sold out, Nixon faced pressure from angry Redskins fans, and he, too, wanted to watch the Skins.

BUCKEYES:

Ohio State football coach Mickey Marotti’s breakfast club from hell
The Ohio State football team is buying into what new strength coach Mickey Marotti is feeding them — literally and figuratively. And with a new “no loafing” rule in effect the players are quickly buying into Marotti’s plan.

While working in an ultra-competitive weight room environment, OSU players have responded to their new program instituted by Marotti, the assistant athletic director of football sports performance. Players and coaches have already seen positive results, Marotti told reporters Wednesday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

OSU is in week five of its five-days-a-week program, which Marotti described as a hybrid program that attempts to maximize the genetic potential of each player.

“We do Olympic lifting. We do power lifting. We do strength training. We do speed training,” Marotti said. “We want (players) faster. We want them quicker. We want them leaner. We want

them meaner. We want them stronger, more explosive.”

Marotti said each player’s flexibility, body fat and strength were assessed, and players are getting a better understanding of what it takes to succeed in the program.

“Everything is done in a very disciplined, accountable fashion,” Marotti said. “So if someone doesn’t do something right, the whole group suffers or — I hate to say ‘suffers’ — the whole group has a consequence of doing it again.”

“Disciplined” might be an understatement.

They’re calling it “LinSanity” in New York, and it hit fever pitch tonight after Lin’s game winning 3-pointer with less than a second to play in the Knicks win. He finished with 27 points and a career-high 11 assists.

But despite the “LinSanity” he seems to have his head on straight.
The Knicks overnight phenom Jeremy Lin quotes from a section of John Piper’s book Don’t Waste Your Life in an online testimony recorded last June:

God created us to live with a single passion to joyfully display his supreme excellence in all the spheres of life.

Lin then adds the following commentary about his coming to treasure Jesus more than basketball success:

When Paul wrote in Philippians to press on for an upward prize, he was living for that, and it made his life meaningful (Philippians 3:15). And I realized I had to learn to do the same. I had to learn to stop chasing the perishable prizes of this earth, I had to stop chasing personal glory, I had to learn how to give my best effort to God and trust him with the results. I have to learn to have enough faith to trust in his grace and to trust in his sovereign and perfect plan. I had to submit my will, my desires, my dreams — give it all up to God and say, “Look, I am going to give my best effort, go on the court and play every day for you, and I’m going to let you take care of the rest.” This is something I struggle with every day. . . . Playing for great stats is nice, but that satisfaction — that happiness — is only from game to game. It’s temporary.
Indeed, only in God’s presence is there “fullness of joy,” and only at his right hand are there “pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:11).

HEALTH:
8 Humans Whose Eating Habits Would Make a Goat
Puke

#8. Henry Ford Ate Weeds from His Yard
The Diet: Weeds.
Although one of the wealthiest men of his time,
Henry Ford could not have been less interested in food. Having made his living
designing cars, he came to see the human digestive system as a kind of
combustion engine that just needed fuel, and as far as he was concerned, that
fuel was all around him.

#7. Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister
Consumes Jack and Meat
The Diet:Jack Daniels, meat, cheese, drugs.
Lemmy drinks at least one bottle of whiskey
a day, and he’s done it for over 35 years. The food he consumes is equally
unhealthy: He loathes vegetables and eats mainly meats and cheese,
with the occasional cake or biscuit thrown in, administered on a “however
much he likes, whenever he likes it” basis. He’s been smoking since he was
11. He does copious amounts of drugs daily, and has done so for decades.

#6. Charles Darwin Ate Every Animal He Discovered
Darwin really loved animals.
The Diet: The entire evolutionary ladder.

“Would a monkey eat his own
ancestor? Damn right he would.”

Charles Darwin ate a sample of any and every
animal he discovered. During his studies at Cambridge University he joined the
Gourmet Club, whose mission statement was to go forth and eat as many rare and
unusual animals as possible. It was basically a 19th century Epic Meal
Time.

#5. Benito Mussolini Ate Milk and Crackers for a Year
The Diet: Milk
and crackers.

Cookies made him too hyperactive, and no one
wants a bouncy mass murderer.
Behind his state-enforced front of never being
ill or tired and being free of all addictions and vices, Mussolini was secretly
nurturing what is perhaps the most pathetic addiction in the history of
mankind. Insiders say that he suffered from chronic stomach pain, and the only
thing that brought him relief was drinking gallons of milk. He preferred this
over every other form of nourishment to such an extent that for a whole year,
he actually subsisted almost entirely on milk and crackers.

#4. A French Soldier Ate Live Animals
The Diet: Everything that wasn’t chained to the floor.

And we’re not talking “He ate raw eggs and
moldy bread!” here, we’re talking “The dude ate live animals.”

#3. An Italian Soldier Ate Rocks
Francis Battalia was an Italian soldier who is
basically unknown to history but for one socially awkward habit.

The Diet: Rocks.
But only the hardest ones, which come from the
East, apparently.

According to eyewitness reports that we admit come from an age when they took dragons seriously, Francis Battalia was a renowned stone eater. We don’t mean that as some kind of humorous analogy for his wife’s cooking; we mean he was basically that monster from The Never Ending Story. Local registers from around the time he was alive recorded this
behavior with surprisingly few old-timey ways of saying “What the
freaking hell?”
And before you call bullsh*t on this one, keep
in mind that eating stones isn’t unheard of, and the urge to do so is
often related to a lack of certain minerals in the body. It’s just that when
most people do it, it’s not as bada$$ as Mr. Battalia.

#2. Roman
Emperor Heliogabalus Ate Bird Brains and Gold
The emperors of Rome aren’t exactly remembered
for their restraint. Your typical social occasion in a Roman palace involved
lavish feasts and orgies, often at the same time. But it all paled in
comparison to the feasts of Emperor Heliogabalus, who made the average Roman
banquet look like something from a prison cafeteria.

The Diet: Stuff even the Roman Empire couldn’t
afford. And these are the guys who could afford heavily
pixelated parties.

Heliogabalus rose to the Roman throne at 14
years old and proceeded to run the palace like, well, a 14-year-old. It’s said
that his dinner guests would often find whoopee cushions on their
chairs as they sat down to eat. As for the meals themselves, Heliogabalus dined
with such ridiculous excess that it was enough to make even other
Romans go “Whoa, dude, a salad every once in a while wouldn’t kill
you.”

#1. William Buckland Ate a Human Heart
Victorian-era scientist William Buckland was the
first person to publish a scientific study of the dinosaur. It’s about the
closest thing to a 10-year-old boy’s dream career of studying living dinosaurs
and also riding them and making them battle. Buckland also happened to be
crazier than a shithouse rat, which he would also have eaten.

The Diet:One of every animal, also a king’s heart.
Buckland was a man on a mission, and that
mission was to eat one of every species in existence. His role in the Society
for the Acclimatization of Animals meant he was allowed to import species from
around the world for study, a fact which he abused immensely in order to get
every species imaginable down his gullet. The reports of what he ate cover just
about everything, from puppies to panthers.
