We went to the theaters to see this movie last night. Talk about a tear jerker!!! I read the book, knew what was coming & still needed a box of Kleenex.

Father’s Day 2016

He taught me the importance of reading, learning and so many countless history facts (whether I wanted to hear them or not!).

I’m 33 and he still corrects my grammar and disapproves of popped collars or wrinkled apparel. He still dresses up for church and is very formal at the dinner table.

If you went to Mt Hope High School  you may have been subject to Portuguese noogies & you may have had to learn the jitterbug and dance in the hallway in front of your peers.

He’s a life long teacher & student because he believes that we should never stop learning.

Cheers to you Dad.❤️

Industries of the Future

If you are going to read only one book about the future of jobs and lifestyles then read this one. It is taking me a while to read but it is so worth the time.
At the time of its publication the author noted that 47% of American jobs are at high risk for robot take over. I wouldn’t take that fact lightly and neither should you.

The chapter on advances in medicine & science are amazing. In the future doctors and scientists will be able to screen you for cancer with a simple blood test much like the one for your yearly physical. Most likely catching cancer at Stage 1 where it is much more easily treatable unlike Stages 3 or 4 when it may be too late.
Don’t miss it!

Anomalisa

What an odd little movie. I waited months at my local library for this. It’s an animated film about a business man and his relationships with his family and some women with whom he’s had extramarital affairs. It is funny how raw and real the emotions of the characters are even though they are animated and not real actors (so to speak).

A few years ago my Dad bought me this book for Christmas.
It’s HUGE and weighs close to 10 pounds so it’s hard to read in one sitting.
I’ve read it a few times. It is a great book with great illustrations!
I discovered a few artists that I have never heard of and also was able to revisit some that I studied in college. Funny how we forget. This was very inspirational!
