“I’m coming to this world not to work. I want to come to this world to enjoy my life. I don’t want to die in my office. I want to die on the beaches.”

*Make this your (MMM) morning mirror mantra.


Roger Maris 1934 – chop wood

On this date in Yankees history: Roger Maris earns 1961 AL MVP | Bronx  Pinstripes |

The bulge you saw in Maris’ arms came from chopping wood back home in Fargo, N.D.

*It might be difficult to find a wood pile to chop, but it is fun, and it does ease stress. If not, ask your trainer for a move to simulate chopping wood or go to the batting cages and swing away.


Marie Laveau 1801

The Magic of Marie Laveau: Embracing the Spiritual Legacy of the Voodoo  Queen of New Orleans: Alvarado, Denise, Long, Carolyn Morrow:  9781578636730: Books

Many condemned her as a witch while others praised her as a saint. Vodou began when African slaves brought their native traditions with them as they were forcefully transported to the new world. Vodou is a monotheistic religion. Followers of Vodou — known as Vodouisants — believe in a single, supreme godhead that can be equated with the Catholic God. This deity is known as Bondye, “the good god”

*Pray to Bondye – “the good god” today.

Palmer had not capitalized on his namesake drink. Knowing this, three men decided it would make sense to draw up a business plan — on a napkin of course — and present it to Palmer’s agents.

*Go to the bar with two buddies. Order Arnold Palmers. Draw up a business plan on a napkin. Make millions.

A signature menu item was the Big Unit hot dog, named for Diamondbacks Hall of Famer Randy Johnson. It’s nearly 2 feet of meat packed in an entire baguette loaf and smothered in chili, cheese, bacon, jalapeño, grilled onions, relish and sauerkraut.

*Enjoy a Big Unit hot dog in honor of one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball. Wash it down with an Arnold Palmer in honor of one of the most dominant golfers ever.
