MELLOW WITH AGE DAY
John Tyler 1790
John Tyler was the first vice president elevated to the presidency on the death of the chief executive and the first president to marry in the White House. Nearly 175 years later, two of his grandchildren are still around.
Harrison Ruffin Tyler, 89, is one of two living grandsons of President John Tyler, who was born in 1790, one year after George Washington was sworn in as president.
Just three generations — President Tyler, his son Lyon Tyler, and grandson Harrison — span almost the entire history of the United States.

Cy Young 1876
“The most important are mobility and stability in your shoulders and hips, ‘pillar’ stability, and overall upper and lower-body strength,”

Walt “Clyde” Frazier 1945
So has Clyde changed with age?
Yeah, I was kind of an extremist. I liked to go out. Now, I’m an even-keeled guy. I rarely go to discos. The things I like to do now don’t cost me money. A little walk in the park, a kiss after dark. I’ve mellowed with age.
*Do something that doesn’t cost you money. Have soul like “Clyde” and take a little walk in the park with a kiss after dark.
Sam Walton 1918
Walton – one of the richest men in America – admitted that he barely knew his youngest son and that he even neglected his grandchildren. His wife stayed with him out of commitment. He admitted he spent way too much time investing into his business rather than spending time with those who mattered most – his own family!
*Don’t wait until you are on your deathbed to realize what Sam Walton realized! Make your life count today and leave a legacy that is worth more than any trust fund you’ll leave your children!
Brendan Gleeson 1955 – watch Braveheart
One of the most common questions I’m asked is how factual Mel Gibson’s portrayal of William Wallace was in the 1995 film Braveheart. The short answer is that is hasn’t an iota of fact in it.
Dubliner Gleeson played hulking warrior Hamish, Wallace’s lifelong friend.
Last seen in Tom Cruise’s blockbuster Edge Of Tomorrow, the honorary Scot is one of the most respected and in-demand actors in the business.
*Whether it’s factual or not, enjoy watching Braveheart today. Remember that ENTERTAINMENT is an escape from reality – not a history lesson. Says the history teacher.
Elle Macpherson 1964 – banana, pear, and vanilla smoothie bowl
I’m a big believer in good gut health. I know if I nourish my body with clean nutrients for inner wellness, it will show on the outside. I try to live by this every day, then throw in plenty of love and laughter into the mix.
*Work on your gut health by starting your day with Elle Macpherson’s pear, banana, and vanilla smoothie bowl. Have plenty of love and laughter for the rest of today.
