WEAR ONE GLOVE DAY
John Locke 1632
“Experience: in that, all our knowledge is founded; and from that it ultimately derives itself.”
An abundance of psychology research has shown that experiences bring people more happiness than do possessions.
*What experiences are you going to add to your knowledge and happiness today?
Lea Michele 1986
Besides hiking, Lea has a love affair with yoga — hot yoga, to be exact. “#GoodForTheBody #GoodForTheSoul.”
*Go hiking and take a Hot Yoga class today. Listen to Lea Michele’s music for motivation. Don’t be a bully!
John McCain 1936
In a family memoir, a campaign ad as well as a televised interview with megachurch pastor Rick Warren, he recalled a guard in his prisoner of war camp in Vietnam who shared his faith one Christmas.
“He stood there for a minute, and with his sandal on the dirt in the courtyard, he drew a cross and he stood there,”
“And a minute later, he rubbed it out, and walked away. For a minute there, there were just two Christians worshiping together.”
Asked what being a Christian means, McCain replied: “It means I’m saved and forgiven.”
*If John McCain can share a moment of worship with one of his Vietnam War POW guards, you can share your faith with anyone. Senator McCain passed away in the middle of me writing this (2018). May he Rest In Peace.
Iris Apfel 1921
“If you’re happy, have found love, are surrounded by good people, doing what you like and giving back to others, that’s success. Selling your soul for a buck is not worth the real price you pay — not to me, anyways.”
*I’m sure that the MONEY part of 365DOLF has grown confusing to some. One day it may suggest that it’s all about making money and on another day there may be a suggestion on how to give it away. The bottom line is what Iris has suggested, if you’re happy, have found love, surrounded by good people, doing what you like, and giving back – that’s success.
Michael Jackson 1958
*Listen to the King of Pop all day. Don’t stop till you get enough.
Ingrid Bergman 1915 – Swedish Crayfish and Hot Fudge Sundae Party
As a young actress in Stockholm she loved to eat crayfish, with a bib. When she first came to America from Sweden in 1939, she fell in love with American ice cream.
‘A hot fudge sundae was an unbelievable delight,’ ‘In New York City, where I liked the ice cream the best, I could eat four ice creams in a day.’
August crayfish parties are one of the highlights of the Swedish calendar and appeal to people of all ages.
*With August coming to an end soon, throw a Swedish crayfish party (have bibs available) and show an Ingrid Bergman movie or two or three (she won 3 Oscars). Have hot fudge sundaes for dessert – enough so each guest can have four of them.
