“I try to get to a Pilates Plus class, which is an intense, fast-paced workout that’s done on a special reformer machine, at least three times a week. I also go to the gym a couple of times. I do 15 minutes on the treadmill, walking at a 3.5-mile-per-hour speed and a 15-grade incline.”
*If you can’t get to a Pilates Plus class, do 15 minutes on the treadmill, walking 3.5 mph at a 15-grade incline. Also think of getting the brookeburkebody app.
Ruby Bridges 1954
When Ruby Bridges walked into her first-grade class in 1960, the tiny 6-year-old became a powerful symbol of the Civil Rights Movement. She was the first black student to attend the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, despite the mob of protesters who raged outside the school.
*If you have a daunting challenge today, gather the courage of Ruby Bridges to overcome it.
Peter Sellers 1925 – write a will
A letter signed by Peter Sellers hours before his death, lends weight to the theory that the wrong person inherited his wealth.
*You were introduced to legalzoom.com a few days ago. Use it again today to make your will.
Pink 1979 – yes, Pink and the Pink Panther share a birthday
*Listen to Pink all day.
SIDE NOTE – My favorite female artist shares a birthday with my wife.
Wiz Khalifa 1987 – rice and salmon
The Pittsburgh star, tweeted a request for his hometown fans: “weed and Primanti’s.”
“I really like rice and salmon. The funny thing is, anything with rice, I’m really down with it. When it’s rice involved, I’m going to come and scoop me up a plate.”
BONUS: Charlie Trotter 1959: These 4-ounce, vacuum-sealed packages of salmon are a food you can purchase and lay claim: “I got to eat Charlie Trotter’s cooking.”
*Get some Charlie Trotter salmon and make rice to eat like Wiz Khalifa. Have some late-night weed and Primanti’s Brothers sandwiches. Go Steelers!
“Although about the same proportion of blacks and whites use marijuana, a black person is almost four times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than a white person.” – Bernie Sanders
SNUB – David Arquette 1971
