-Liberia named its capital city after Monroe. Monrovia is the only non-US capital to be named after a US President.


*Another good presidential DYK to start up conversation today.

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view. … Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”


*Climb inside someone’s skin today and consider things from their point of view.

Seven lists in all were made by Oskar Schindler and his associates during the war, while four are known to still exist. Two are at the Yad Vashem in Israel, one is at the US Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., and one privately owned list was unsuccessfully auctioned off via eBay in 2013.

The movie refers to the first two lists created in 1944, otherwise known as “The Lists of Life.” The five subsequent lists were updates to the first two versions, which included the names of more than 1000 Jews who Schindler saved by recruiting them to work in his factory.


*Watch Schindler’s List tonight – with a box of tissues.


Penelope Cruz 1974 – shrimp stew

The movie we’re currently using for culinary inspiration over at Food ‘n Flix is Woman on Top starring Penelope Cruz.  It’s fun…it’s a chick-flick…it  has sexy men and (dare I say) even sexier food! With her cooking, Isabella can mesmerize palates…and men…wherever she goes.  Fleeing from her cheating husband and their restaurant in her native Brazil, she lands in San Francisco to start over from scratch.  Isabella strives to find balance between her need to control (hence, woman on top) and the passion in her heart.


*Enjoy this sexy shrimp stew while watching the movie that it comes from – Woman on Top

SNUB – Saddam Hussein

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.
