party planner, WILLIAM P. MILLER. The video illustrates the power of love between a man and a woman who go through with an elaborate marriage although the wife is literally dying from cancer. So, to all those in the world who don't believe true love can exist, I say you only believe that because you've been loving or have loved the WRONG person!!! Wise men and women know that a true love story never ends!!!

A DAY IN THE LIFE, an original series on Hulu. The episode was a sneak peek into a day in the life of high school dropout turned billionaire entrepreneur, SIR RICHARD BRANSON. All I can say is what a fascinating and busy life the man has made for himself. He is living proof that when the mind has no limits, the accomplishments follow suit! I'm 48 yrs old now. A part of me wonders if it's too late to accomplish any of the professional goals I've dreamt of. I can clearly see that self-doubt is the REASON I've never accomplished any of those goals. As long as I have breath and am in my right mind, I CAN accomplish many things! Deep down in my soul I do truly believe that. --- Watching Mr. Branson go about his busy day with a smile and anxious anticipation makes me want to work harder to do the same. I know I possess the talent to do EVERYTHING I've ever thought about doing. I simply have to DO it. It truly is as simple as that. And as difficult as that. The choice is mine.

The Too-Good-To-Be-True Kids
Tonight I had a glorious time, chillin' with a fella from high school, his terrific wife and their too-good-to-be-true teenage son! We went to Saddle Ranch for dinner and truly had a blast! Back in high school, my relationship with David was in passing. He was a studly football player and I was...well...I wasn't. It wasn't until we graduated from college and he called me out of the blue while I lived in NYC that our friendship blossomed. I allowed him to stay with me in my condo rental for a couple weeks. We've kept in touch ever since. He now has a lovely wife, Lisa, and two, beautiful and incredibly athletic children! Spending time with them truly lets me know that pairing up with a partner and raising children isn't such a bad idea. That may not be my lot in life, but I'm mighty happy whenever I can spend time with those for whom it is!

MICHAEL'S, and bought a gift or two to give to folks this holiday season. I love that place. The merchandise and sales are awesome!! Anyway, I also went to VON's grocery store to buy a bottle of booze to take to a dinner gathering I'm attending tonight. I parked my car at a Bank Of America because I had to make a deposit first. I exchanged pleasantries with the security guard who was standing outside the bank, then I went into Von's. While picking up a bottle of vodka for tonight, I decided to pick up two, along with a festive, gift bag. When I walked back to my car, I stopped and visited with the security guard and proceeded to give him the other bottle of vodka, already stuffed into the gift bag, mind you! He was shocked, of course. I shook his hand, gave him a hug and told him that the only thing I wanted in return was for him to extend some kindness to someone he had never met, too. Even if he doesn't drink, I hope & pray he'll always remember my gesture. And, heck, it's not like I gave him just any ol' bottle of vodka. The sucka got STOLI!!!! Haa! Merry Christmas Eve to one and all!!!

I know I've posted about this a lil while ago, but the original video has since been deleted. Well, luckily for me, someone has reposted the performance again. And, boy, oh boy, I love it as much today as I did the day I first posted it! SINNNNG, Kelly Clarkson! Sing!!!!!!!!!! MTV's Unplugged is simply sensational! Simply!
TV One's Unsung documentary series. The featured acts were SHALAMAR and HEATWAVE. I didn't know a lot of the behind-the-scenes stuff that went down with both groups. All I knew was that I sure liked a lot of their songs. What I learned, though, is that if you're an aspiring singer, it appears best to perform as a SOLO act!!! Groups just provide waaaay too much drama!!!

No, I don't have a Christmas tree up in the living room. And I don't have Christmas lights up around the apartment, either. But, dangit, I'm listenin' to a music mix of SWV and Michael Jackson and feelin' mighty filled with Christmas cheer!!!! Now, all I need is some egg nog (laced with Bailey's) and some warm, chocolate chip cookies. Wait a minute! I've got some peanut butter cookies in the fridge, so they'll have to do! Dang, this mix is HOTTTTT!!!!
stroke. I hope & pray she's fine now. Or as fine as can be. --- The employee I first alerted thanked me for being so observant. Honestly, being on the Alzheimer's floor on that day was kind of tough. Watching too many of the residents deteriorate right before my eyes each time I'm there is just a bit much to take sometimes. Young girl scouts came to sing Christmas carols to the residents before I left. I enjoyed seeing the juxtaposition of the generations there. The young girls. Their parents. And the residents. If we all live long enough, we, too, might grow to be just like the residents. The only difference, though, is that most of the people in this country will NEVER be able to afford to live their aged years in a place like this. Until my day comes, I'm simply gonna keep loving and living as best I know how. And what will be, will be. Amen.
