Look to the * for today’s advice.

Always do what you have shown the child to do! Lead by example, carry jugs, bowls trays with two hands. Be quiet and graceful when placing objects on the table. Sit on the child’s dominant side. Move slowly.

*With your own children, or if you are around children today, lead by example with all of your actions.

In addition to taking it up a level during the off-season, Lott integrated more running workouts, plyometrics, and horizontal jumping like box jumps into Fitzgerald’s in-season training routine. Fitzgerald admits he despises these conditioning techniques, but he can’t dispute their value.

The 69-year-old actor looks set to become a father again, according to an Instagram post from his wife. Alejandra Silva, 35, posted a photo Sunday that appeared to show the Dalai Lama and her husband touching her baby bump.

When you are asked about Buddhism, are there certain themes you return to that you feel are helpful, such as compassion?

Richard Gere: Absolutely. I will probably discuss wisdom and compassion in some form, that there are two poles we are here to explore—expanding our minds and expanding our hearts. At some point hopefully being able to encompass the entire universe inside mind, and the same thing with heart, with compassion, hopefully both at the same time. Inseparable.

*Expand your mind and your heart. Look into Buddhism today.

A big part of being a good owner is making good executive personnel decisions.  In hiring manager Tony LaRussa, it’s hard to see how DeWitt Jr. could have done any better.

CREW MEMBERS HAD TO LEAVE THE SET BECAUSE TUCKER WAS MAKING THEM LAUGH TOO MUCH.

Because their laughter ruined takes, camera operators and other personnel were forced to take a break or avoid watching somehow.

NO, CHRIS TUCKER WASN’T HIGH DURING SHOOTING.

“You can’t make a movie high,” Tucker told The AV Club. “Naw, I didn’t stay in character, but it was a good movie to do. We had a lot of fun.” In 2012, he told The Guardian that fans still regularly offer him pot. “They want to say they smoked with Smokey,” Tucker laughs. “I’m so glad I don’t smoke—I’d be high all the time.”

YES, “BYE FELICIA” IS FROM THIS MOVIE.

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.
