Back from the dead

This just in: After a couple of weeks off, I’m back.

A couple of things took place.  First, I finally dropped Godaddy as the host for this site.  Secondly, I think I want to stop being so 100% political.  I can’t help myself in this regard but I think a compromise may work.  I will only allow a single paragraph at the end that will pertain to politics.  Otherwise…I have other soapboxes to stand on.

On the Entertainment Page…

My wife and I have been binging on Game of Thrones.  The sheer scope of this production is overwhelming.

Movies:  Three Billboards is an excellent movie.  It’s a bit darker than I expected but that just means my expectations were off.  I recommend this.  Also, we loved Murder on the Orient Express; even though I knew the outcome.  This is a visually stunning movie.

Books:  Misbehaving by Richard Thaler is outstanding.  He won the Nobel Prize this year in Economics.  His specialty is behavioral economics – why people behave differently that classic economics says they will.

On the Self Improvement Page…

I was with a group of people the other day and the concept of “EGO” came up.  What is this?  Is it good or bad?  Can it be controlled?  There is a lot here to think about.  Does our ego cause us to be overly self interested?  Does our ego make us better people?  I would welcome the formation of a group that meets weekly or monthly just to dive into this issue.  I have this feeling that this is a bottomless pit.  We would be unlikely to say, “And there is the answer!”  There is always more to learn about ourselves.  Life is like math; just because you can add and subtract does not mean you know math…you have only scratched the surface.

The cute video of the day…

Quote of the Day…

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” – Wayne Dyer.

On the Politics page…

Moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem is the single worst foreign policy in the history of the United States. It is already causing trouble in the Middle East, pitting the Arab world against the United States and Israel.  The United Nations and every other nation, except Israel, is denouncing the move.  And this is the worse part…it’s all for nothing.  It accomplished nothing while making things worse.

Time for me to save the world.

Up, up and away…
