There are two kinds of people. Those that have read “Ulysses” and those that haven’t

*Actually there are 3 types of people. I tried reading it. I stopped on page 323. I just don’t get it. Every year on this day, I’m going to continue to read as much as I can until one day I finish this monster.


Shakira 1977

Gerard Pique 1987

After a dream Christmas with her footballer partner Gerard Piqué and their two kids, Milan and Sasha, the star has returned to the gym with a program that combines cardio and dance, in addition to strength exercises.

*Use those hips to combine cardio and dance, and work in some strength exercises. Make sure to watch Shakira perform at halftime of tonight’s Super Bowl.


George Halas 1895

“San Francisco has always been my favorite booing city. I don’t mean the people boo louder or longer, but there is a very special intimacy. When they boo you, you know they mean you. Music, that’s what it is to me. One time in Kezar Stadium they gave me a standing boo.”

*Take pride in being booed today. Take it as a compliment. Papa Bear Halas would be cheering for Kansas City to beat San Francisco in tonight’s Super Bowl.


Ayn Rand 1905

“Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to be the tool by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of men. Blood, whips and guns—or dollars. Take your choice—there is no other—and your time is running out.”

Ayn Rand wrote volumes urging people to be selfish.

  • Work hard to achieve a life of purpose and productiveness.
  • Pursue your own happiness as your highest moral aim.

*This may change your whole outlook on life and you will no longer need to read the Money or Soul portions of 365DOLF.

“I’ll admit that for me, the Super Bowl is less about football than it is about the party. If I’m having friends over to watch the game, I love to serve something that’s really decadent and over the top – like my Caramelized Bacon. What could be better than strips of bacon that are crispy, salty, spicy, and a little bit sweet? The only problem is your guests will love these so much, you’ll have to make a lot!! Have a great Super Bowl party and may the best team win!”


*The above was a Facebook post from our Super Bowl birthday girl. Make a lot of caramelized bacon for the big game.

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.
