AN INSPIRING STORY

Anthony enrolled in West Virginia University in 1939. Three years later the war interfered with his plan to graduate.

After the war he briefly returned to school but dropped out again when his wife became ill. He worked as a machinist most of his life before resolving to finish his degree. He said, "It was always important for me to graduate."

He will receive his diploma next week.... at the ripe old age of 94.

He's not sure about a masters degree as  he feels he needs a break—a very well deserved one at that.

Bravo Tony Bravo! You teach us all a valuable life lesson—NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP!

Bye for Now,

Bill

A KIND STORY

Owners of a coffee shop in Denver opened one 2 years ago with the goal of hiring homeless young adults, giving them one year contracts to help them get back on their feet.

A 23 year old woman landed a job there and after having been homeless from age 15  and a new life with a full-time job at Starbucks.

She said, "This is exactly what us 'street kids' needed...It's all about love."

So is my favorite program here in South Fl. Check it out at yatc.org.

I

continue to be amazed at the progress with my back since starting acupuncture.

If you r dealing with pain I encourage you to try it as it is the only thing that has worked for me.

If u r in South Fl try Dr. Qi in Coral Springs—a true healer and gentlemen.

Bye for now,

WE

jumped on a five day cruise and had a lovely time. I am writing a new book addressing stress and how to de-stress, which has taken me on a journey of learning about playing—a topic about which I am no expert.

I was pretty expert as a kid, but lost my "play dates" after my father died. Life became serious then and still is for most of me.

My wires have been crossed forever and for me work is play and most play is work. The cruise allowed me to uncross my wires—temporarily.

If it had lasted i would not be writing this blog at 10:40 PM on a Friday nite.

Hope you can have a playful weekend.

Bye for Now,
