*The following books I read two times in no particular order: Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, Cashflow Quadrant by Kiyosaki, Prophecy by Kiyosaki, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, Moneyball by Michael Lewis, Seinlanguage by Jerry Seinfeld, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger, Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, The Red Badge Of Courage by Stephen Crane, Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, The Old Man In The Sea by Ernest Hemingway, All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten by Robert Fulghum, How To Win Friends And Influence People by Dale Carnegie, The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson, and The Invention Of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick.

*Flashdance Movie. My fifth grade class sang the theme song for the school music recital. The movie was popular because of the music. The movie included adult themes fifth graders didn't understand including the sex, brief nudity, and adult relationships. On the other hand, we understood the bad language swearing.

There is a line "take your passion." I interpreted the line as "take your pants off" before I read the correct lyrics to sing at the school music recital.

*Splash Movie. My fifth grade class watched Splash starring Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah, and the late John Candy. The entire class laughed when we saw Hannah character's nude butt when she walked out of the water. Today's political correctness female nude butt scenes are inappropriate for children.

*Super Bowl LIII. Congratulations to the New England Patriots defeating the Los Angeles Rams for their sixth Super Bowl Championship. 66 year old Patriots head coach Bill Belichick outcoached 33 year old Sean McVay. Belichick coached nine Super Bowls. .667 championship record anyone takes the odds for many chance opportunities.

In particular, Belichick called for a defensive blitz resulting in a Rams interception turnover. The Rams punted the ball in their first 8 offensive possessions. The Rams defense played too many minutes in the first half resulting in fatigue in the fourth quarter.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the only NFL player with six Super Bowl titles. The Patriots and the Pittsburg Steelers are the only NFL teams with six Super Bowl titles.

*More Bay Area Sports Media Changes. Former NBC Sports Bay Area Ahmed Fareed is working for NBCSN East Coast. Ryan Covey was fired from KNBR 680. Covey works for 95.7 The Game.

*The world is getting dumb. IQ is dropping. There are more dumbing down. There is intelligence loss.

*I realize why people inflict self-pain. The pain makes people forget anything bad, depressing, evil, and anxious. Similarly, people runaway, escape, to get out for the same reasons above.

*Apocalypse. What goods are more valuable than money? Nude pictures. Nude deck of cards. Great barter to exchange for food, surplus goods, transportation, and shelter.

*The Firm Movie. I read the book by John Grisham. I watched the movie. The movie is a template how not to adapt a movie based off a novel. The movie wasted star power actors and actresses.

*Seeing More Homeless. There are going to be more homeless people in the Bay Area. I saw a homeless person at a supermarket who walked away from me. I carried four 1 gallon bottle water. I should have given the homeless person a gallon.

*USPS Manipulating Delivery Statistics. My dad's package was marked delivered according to the USPS website. The packaged never arrived. My dad contacted the local post office the next day. The supervisor said USPS had to mark the packaged delivered. There was no time to deliver the package yesterday. The packaged was delivered the next day. Why did the post office marked my dad's packaged delivered? My answer is quotas or minimal percentage of packages must be delivered on time. Politics?

*KCEA 89.1 FM. The big band radio station in the Nor Cal Peninsula area is back on the air. The radio station is located in the Sequoia Union High School district at Menlo-Atherton High School. The website is

*Senior Home. Visitors shouldn't ask the seniors to recollect past memory. Too much pressure to remember. The better communication is tell the seniors the past memory proactively.

Never refer to the senior present in a pronoun. Don't say he or she. Do say my grandfather or my grandmother.
