There are two kinds of people. Those that have read “Ulysses” and those that haven’t

*Actually, there are 3 types of people. I tried reading it. I stopped on page 323. I do not get it. Every year on this day, I’m going to continue to read as much as I can until one day, I finish this beast.

CROSSOVER: FOOD – With a Gorgonzola cheese and mustard sandwich and a glass of Burgundy in hand, open a copy of Ulysses to the final chapter and read.

Christie Brinkley describes her love for the Total Gym, and how it’s kept her looking fabulous well into her 60’s. Due to it’s low-impact capabilities, the Total Gym is great way to exercise at any age or fitness level!

“I don’t have a religion, but I’m into spirituality,” “I definitely like the idea there’s something else, and who knows what that is? I think I’d feel saddened to think this is it.”

*Do you have a religion or are you into spirituality?

What is your idea of there being something else?

MONEY

Ayn Rand 1905

“Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to be the tool by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of men. Blood, whips and guns—or dollars. Take your choice—there is no other—and your time is running out.”

Ayn Rand wrote volumes urging people to be selfish.

  • Work hard to achieve a life of purpose and productiveness.
  • Pursue your own happiness as your highest moral aim.

*This may change your whole outlook on life, including the MONEY or SOUL portions of 365DOLF.

“I’ll admit that for me, the Super Bowl is less about football than it is about the party. If I’m having friends over to watch the game, I love to serve something that’s really decadent and over the top – like my Caramelized Bacon. What could be better than strips of bacon that are crispy, salty, spicy, and a little bit sweet? The only problem is your guests will love these so much, you’ll have to make a lot!! Have a great Super Bowl party and may the best team win!”

*The above was a Facebook post from our birthday girl. Make a lot of caramelized bacon for the Super Bowl, which is always around this time of year.

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.
