Remembering Elvis Presley

August 16, 1977…

It’s been 37 years since Elvis Presley died. I remember were I was when I heard the news. I was playing with the console stereo/TV and then I heard the announcement. I was only 10 years old, but I was sad to hear that one if my favorite singers had past away.

Being an Elvis fan since I can remember,  I always take a moment in August 16th to pay my respects.

Hopefully, I’ll make it to Graceland to be a part of another Elvis Week (last one was the 25th anniversary if his death.)

Until then, I still have his music to listen to and movies to watch.

Here are a few a of my favorite pictures of Elvis.

Where is… Michael Schoeffling

My youth movie star crush… Michael Schoeffling! Where, oh where can he be?

Michael Schoeffling retired from acting in 1991 for practical reasons. There just weren’t many roles available for him to take. After retiring he started manufacturing furniture and opened up a woodworking shop.

I don’t care what anyone says about Michael Schoeffling and how he felt Vegas.

I Smell Cake #2

“I Smell Cake” is a saying from the TV show “Scrubs.”

“I smell cake! If Uncle Bernie died, someone’s gonna have to go on a beer run!”— Dan Dorian

I just noticed that my last few posts have been R.I.P. and today isn’t any different.

I read that Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014), an American film and stage actress and model, known for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks died.

I didn’t see very many movies of hers. I did like her in her role in The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), After reading some of her movies, here is a list of the ones that I want to see.

And I will always remember her whenever I hear. “Bacall and Bogart” in the 1981 song “Key Largo” by Bertie Higgins

 

R.I.P. Robin Williams

I was so sad to hear today Robin Williams past away.

He was always one of my favorite comedian and actors.

If you did not watch Robin Williams’s epic performance on James Lipton’s Inside The Actor’s Studio, you really should. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard watching a show than the one that he was on.

Here is one part of the show:

When I’m surfing videos on YouTube, I find myself watching this and Robin made everything better.

Here are some of my favorite movies that he was in.

R.I.P. Robin Williams… you will long live in what you l left behind for us.

R.I.P. James Garner

When I saw the news that James Garner had passed away I had flashbacks to my family room when I was growing up.

I remember every Saturday night getting together with my mom, dad and brother and watching The Rockford Files.”

I couldn’t tell you what episodes I watched, but I remember watching them every week with my family.

I always liked James Garner. I loved him in “Murphy’s Romance” and “The Notebook.”

When I Googled pictures of James Garner,  here were some of my favorites.

The Limit Is Me

I got thie in an e-mail I got from work.

I usually just take a glance at things like this,but this morning, I deceided to read it. And I’m glad I did. I made me sit and think and re-read it.

So now I am passing it along here.

Make it a great day!

Personal Growth, Personal Independence: The Limit Is Me

One day all the employees reached the office and they saw a big advice on the door on which it was written:
Yesterday the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym“.

 

In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they started getting curious to know who was that man who hindered the growth of his colleagues and the company itself.

The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room.

The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought: “Who is this guy who was hindering my progress? Well, at least he died!“.

One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it they suddenly became speechless. They stood nearby the coffin, shocked and in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.

There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside it could see himself.

There was also a sign next to the mirror that said:

There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth: it is YOU.

You are the only person who can revolutionize your life. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, your realization and your success. You are the only person who can help yourself.

Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your partner changes, when your company changes.

Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs, when you realize that you are the only one responsible for your life.

Examine yourself, watch yourself.

Don’t be afraid of difficulties, impossiblilities and losses: be a winner, build yourself and your reality.

The world is like a mirror: it gives back to anyone the reflection of the thoughts in which one has strongly believed.

The world and your reality are like mirrors laying in a coffin, which show to any individual the death of his divine capability to imagine and create his happiness and his success.
