The idea of soul mates lures people into believing that marriage will be easy (our personalities fit together!) and perpetually passionate (we’re meant to be!).  It’s a popular mindset—69 percent of Americans believe in soul mates, according to a March YouGov poll.  But it doesn’t make for good marriages.

*Believing that you’ve met your soulmate is great, but you are still going to have to work on your relationship every day.

MONEY

JP Morgan 1837

Trust matters

Morgan realized the value of an honest reputation. He was testifying before a Congressional committee in 1912 when he was asked if commercial credit was based on money or property.

“The first thing is character,” he responded. “Before money or anything else. Money cannot buy it.… A man I do not trust could not get money from me on all the bonds in Christendom. I think that is the fundamental basis of business.”

After a seven-year absence from the silver screen, Lisbeth Salander will return in all of her punk glory next year in The Girl in the Spider’s Web. However, the franchise is making a big jump — moving away from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo actress Rooney Mara’s portrayal in the 2011 film and replacing her with The Crown‘s Claire Foy. As it turns out, the break wasn’t entirely mutual, as Mara reportedly wanted to come back and take another shot at Ms. Salander.

Sean Bean’s Complete Sunday Roast or Chicken in Red Pesto Sauce

4 skinless chicken breasts
1 can tomatoes
1 tub creme fraiche
1 jar red pesto
fresh basil
fresh black olives

Brown chicken in a pot.
Meanwhile mix creme fraiche, tomatoes and 3 dessert-spoons of red pesto sauce in a bowl. Add to saucepan with the chicken and simmer on low heat for 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook some rice – I recommend heartily boil in the bag Uncle Ben’s!
Just before serving add basil leaves and chopped black olives.
Then, stuff your faces!

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
