    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    “Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were.  But without it, we go nowhere.”  -Carl Sagan

    WILLY WONKA-PURE IMAGINATION  *******Remember Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?  It was one of my favorite movies growing up and I introduced it to my boys and they love it too!  What child doesn’t love a movie about candy and imagination???  You really can’t go far in life without using your imagination.  Although  Martin Luther King Jr. and Walt Disney are two entirely different men, look where their imaginations took them and the world? Where will yours take you?

    MAROON 5-PURE IMAGINATION  *******This is Maroon 5’s version of Pure Imagination.  The guitar riff towards the end is NASTY!*******

    HOW TO RELIEVE LOWER BACK PAIN (TECHNIQUE)  *******I don’t know about you guys, but I have an old back injury from the military that makes me feel like a 90-year-old when I get out of bed, sit or stand too long.  This technique does work and I can’t believe I haven’t done it in so long.  If you have back problems too, try this and you’ll soon feel the difference!*******

    Motivational Quote/Word/Song/Videos of the Day- 28 Aug 2008 


    MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

    “If we are basically positive in attitude, expecting and envisioning pleasure, satisfaction and happiness, we will attract and create people, situations and events which conform to our positive expectations.”  -Shakti Gawain, Author of Creative Visualization

    USING VISUALIZATION TO CREATE SUCCESS  *******This is a great visualization technique to get the ball rolling for you.*******

    WORD OF THE DAY

    REFRACTORY

    • \rih-FRAK-tuh-ree\ adjective

    *1 : resisting control or authority : stubborn, unmanageable
    2 a : resistant to treatment or cure
    b : unresponsive to stimulus
    c : immune, insusceptible
    3 : difficult to fuse, corrode, or draw out; especially : capable of enduring high temperature

    Example Sentence:

    Refractory students may be disciplined, suspended, or expelled, depending on the seriousness of their offense.

    Did you know?

    “Refractory” is from the Latin word “refractarius.” During the 17th century, it was sometimes spelled as “refractary,” but that spelling, though more in keeping with its Latin parent, had fallen out of use by the century’s end. “Refractarius,” like “refractory,” is the result of a slight variation in spelling. It stems from the Latin verb “refragari,” meaning “to oppose.”

    *Indicates the sense illustrated in the example sentence.

    MAN FIGHTS COP, THEN RUNS, GETS TASED  *******Well he should be thirsty after all of that!  It’s just not a good idea to resist arrest.*******

    And for those of you that have more time…

    DRUNK RESISTING ARREST-FUNNY VIDEO  *******This dude is a true lunatic!  At least his Chi is flowing!  LOL*******

    SONG OF THE DAY

    SARA BAREILLES-LOVE SONG  *******Although it may seem like it, Sara didn’t write this song for a man.  This is the song that spilled out of her when she was fuming after Sony asked her to write a love song for her album.  You push her, you get a hit…keep pushing Sony!*******
