(1) Why Our Children Don’t Think There Are Moral Facts

(2) Lisa Z. in PA: This is why you should never drink a McDonalds Shamrock Shake

(3) How Warren Buffett Does It

(4) Natalie K. in PA: I was so moved and touched by this movie [THE GOOD LIE with Reese Witherspoon].  Don’t know if you ever saw it — it’s the story of the Lost Boys of Sudan.  It was so heartwarming, poignant and beautifully written and acted.  I highly recommend it.
(5) Kevin J. in PA:  PLEASE DONATE YOUR OLDER or NEWER IPODS and other unused handheld electronic music devices, like Apple iTouch, etc. [to the Dementia Society of America]. They are needed for personalized music programs for those with Dementia. You may have read about our nonprofit friend and “constituent” Music & Memory? We’re trying to help spread the word, and collect devices on their behalf and for various local programs. Please go to our website, go to the CONTACT US page and send us a note about what you have to donate and we’ll give the details for shipping them.
(6) 9 Memory Tricks for Daily Life
(7) Mike M. in NC:  The Trip To Bountiful *** 1/2
Wonderful Lifetime made for TV movie of Horton Footte’s 2013 Broadway revival staring 2 of the the original Broadway cast.
Cicely Tyson recreates her 2013 Tony Awards winning performance as Carrie Watts an old lady who wants to go back to her hometown of Bountiful before she dies. Excellent supporting performance by Blair Underwood and Vanessa Williams as her son Ludie and nasty daughter in law Jessie Mae.
Caught in the middle between his sweet mama and bitch of a wife Ludie tries to keep peace in the household that they all live in. Carrie determined to get back to Bountiful sneaks out and starts her adventure to her old hometown was is basically non existent anymore.
Lifetime or Lifetime Movie Network on demand this is well worth the watch. I purchased it from Amazon for $5.99 on DVD, but it can also be streamed on Amazon prime.
I never saw the original 1985 film with award winning performance by Geraldine Page so I can’t compare this to that version. I do know this will be in my top 10 favorite all time films.

Section 4, Reviews

C. Read I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW (Hay House) by Wayne Dyer.It is a memoir, of sorts, that drew me in from the very beginning. Dyer, author of more than 40 books and one of my favorite motivational speakers, has taken dozens of events from his life. He presents each one in a few pages, then shows what it has taught him.I’ve heard bits and pieces of many of these stories, but this way of presenting them kept me engrossed as I wanted to learn more about what has made him tick.

As always, I’ve leaned as a result of encountering his wisdom. For example, this tidbit particularly resonated with me:
I use the phrase I am as a declaration of fact, regardless of what anyone around me says, or even what my own eyes and ears tell me is true. I am is the name that God used to identify himself to Moses and to all future generations. I encourage you to use these two words to see first in your imagination what it is that you intend to see, manifest  into your physical reality. I declare every day that I am well, I am perfect health, I am content, I am love, I am God. I do not need to look at numbers on a medical report or hear anyone else’s opinion about my health.

You’ll feel as if you are haivng a one-on-one conversation with Dyer as you go through this book. It left me looking forward to my next encounter with him.

D. Heard THE FOOD BABE WAY: BREAK FREE FROM THE HIDDEN TOXINS IN YOUR FOOD AND LOSE WIGHT, LOOK YEARS YUNGER AND GET HEALTHY IN 21 DAYS! (Hachette Audio), written and read by Vani Hari.The author, a food activist and popular blogger, ate lots of junk food as a child. Consequnetly, she had skin and other problems, and they remained with her until she discovered that pure, natural food was the key to good health.In this book, she details how she successfully challanged such companies as Kraft, Chipotle, Starbucks and Sudeway to elminate controversial ingredients from their porducts. In addition, she has persuaded other companies to list ingredients on their packaging and/or restaurants.

What was surprising to me was the resistance she has met from one company, Trader Joe’s, who doesn’t use any third party certifier to verify its prdoducts.

I very much liked THE FOOD BABE WAY and encourage you to read. it. My only criticism of the book has to do with the fact that I would have liked to have seen more scientific evidence for her claims.
