“With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that’s what everyone around you says is the right thing to do,”

Polyamory is where those involved agree it is fine for everyone to be open to or have more than one romantic partner.

*How is your relationship going? What alternative would you like to try?

Dress up like Willow and whip your hair back and forth.

Vanilla Ice has partnered with Zumba Fitness to create a new workout routine, set to a remix of “Ice, Ice Baby” that was created specifically for Zumba purposes.

*Try it! It’s less than four minutes long, but you’ll break a sweat. Vanilla Ice would make a fresh Halloween costume.

“The basic reason for my success was rooted in the values and discipline and respect for others that I was taught at Neil McNeil.” (a Catholic school in Toronto)

Alabama’s board of trustees on Monday approved a contract extension for football coach Nick Saban that will keep him in Tuscaloosa through the 2028 season.

Saban, who turns 70 in October, will make $8.7 million this year, with his salary set to increase by $400,000 annually. He will be paid an average of $10.6 million over the lifetime of the contract, with the final year coming in at $11.5 million.

Alabama chancellor Robert Witt called Saban the best financial investment in the school’s history.

*Remember the goal of “being valuable”.  Being valuable is more important than being successful, and Nick Saban is both. Nick Saban would be a winning Halloween costume.

*Eat like Columbus. Dress up like him too.

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.
