“I think the secret is really observation. Well, if you observe what’s going on and try to figure out how people are thinking, I think you can always write something that people will understand.”

*Write down what you observe about people today


Diane Lane 1965

Lane’s diet is based on portion control. This diet allows Diane to eat whatever she likes if it is kept in small amounts.

*Today’s message is about portion control. Practice this with all your meals today and especially with the blonde brownies for dessert.


Linda Blair 1959

I feel that it’s my job to use my voice, my money and my charity to give people guidance as to how they can make a difference- whether it’s to rescue or adopt an animal, to volunteer in the community or to just keep our local food banks stocked. Animals and people out there are suffering, and we need to do something about it. You can find all the info on the official The Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation website and through The Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation Facebook page, too. I feel that it’s important that we all find a way to give back somehow.”

*Linda Blair could have shunned religion but instead has become a champion for helping communities find better ways to serve people and animals.



DJ Jazzy Jeff 1965

“My name used to be Mix Master Jeff, so to promote your name, you would go to the store to get your name out on your shirt, and it was pretty much 50 cents a letter. Mix Master Jeff is really, really long,” he laughed. “I shortened it to Jazzy Jeff because that was a little bit easier on my pocket.”

*Hopefully you are trying to become an entrepreneur and sometimes that entails cutting some corners to save money. DJ Jazzy Jeff has proven that to get started at least, sometimes cutting corners can work out for the best.

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.
