“I now know that when it comes to marijuana, it doesn’t have a high potential for abuse, and there are very legitimate medical applications. In fact, sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works.”

*Look into medical marijuana today, to help stimulate your mind.

“I’ve decided to throw myself into a charity I’ve helped develop in conjunction with partners in the U.K. and the U.S. It is called SameYou, and it aims to provide treatment for people recovering from brain injuries and stroke.”

*Throw yourself into a charity today. SameYou looks like a good one.

The value of Carson’s trust has grown to nearly $200 million. That was enough to make it the largest (entertainment) celebrity foundation in the world.

*Set up your own private foundation today. When you do retire, this can be your “second act” as a philanthropist.

You better listen, better do as you’re told
You haven’t even touched your tuna casserole
You better chow down, or it’s gonna get cold
So eat it.

Eat It

When Al approached Michael Jackson about parodying “Beat It”, he wasn’t sure what to expect. Happily Jackson okay’d the song and found it amusing.

*Listen to Weird Al Yankovic’s classics while making tuna casserole – and then you better chow down or it’s gonna get cold.

SNUB – Doug Flutie 1962

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.
