The eye color - he has brown eyes in this and JB original had blue. My dad is about the same age and has a somewhat similar hairline with hair that has turned white and the contrast really pops. Plus, the dude barely blinks which is just kind of creepy.
Also, if you put your hand over the picture and look at the nose down (cheeks, mouth, chin, neck), it looks like someone in their 20-30s.
Yep - R. Lee Emery. Was an actor & a Marine who played basically himself. Was in Full Metal Jacket. Had a show on History Channel called Mail Call. Died about 5 years ago. (Didn't realize until just now that he is buried at Arlington.)
My heater is still kicking on in the morning.
I was in LA a couple of weeks ago for a graduation. A friend of mine moved down for a job last year; before I left I asked her what the weather was like as she lives only a couple of miles from the campus. Her answer was "like SF weather" and she was right. Drove down 101 and I think the highest temperature was 81 and that was in one of the inland valleys, but otherwise, mostly 60s-70s. Lot of fog on the coast. Going home, drove up 5, and the hottest was 87, but for the most part, very pleasant.
I would tear the thing down.
Maybe 15-20 years ago, there was a horrible murder down the hill from where my parents live. Older couple who had this young guy working for them and it turned out they discovered he was embezzling money from them. When they confronted him about it, he took a hammer and beat them to death in their home. He is in jail now, but the couple had no children so a nephew had to handle the estate. The house could not be sold with that history. So that is what he finally did; tore it down, rebuilt it and then sold it and I think it was nearly four years before that happened.
I was laid off nearly one year ago. This is very true. I get interviews. I know I interview well. I am complimented on my resume and experience. I am not asking for the moon but I am not selling myself short either precisely because of the above. There is a tremendous amount of going through the motions. It is extremely hard
There is one job I applied for maybe 10 months ago and I got the generic rejection email. Except I am now on their job notification email. They STILL haven't filled it.
I met a guy who is a sole proprietor who runs his own coaching business. Most coaches work with white collar executives but he works small business and the trades, which is a little unusual. He wants me to do his biz development for him. It is a tremendous leap for me, outside my comfort zone. But that six months of emergency savings? Yeah that's gone, which really worries me. But at this point, corporate America has been giving me the finger. So I am giving them the finger back. I am only mildly terrified. 😄
A recent interview on many different topics, but that comment really stood out to me. It occurred to me it is also a powerful question to ask those who are still in the grips of fear.
Disclaimer: Mike Rowe is my fantasy boyfriend. (I know, get in line.) But seriously. I have a tremendous amount of respect for what he does.
It has been fascinating to watch her journey. She and I would not agree in everything, but that's okay. If anything, she's setting an example for how we can meet in the middle.
I do like her writing. She can be very on point - I share her "I'm not brave, you're just a pussy" essay a lot. But she has penned some personal pieces that are very moving. She wrote basically a love letter to her husband, whom I suspect has been instrumental in her getting to where she is now. But she also wrote about her dog when he passed; I was a puddle.
Okay, I have to "blame Q" for all my number watching now.
The other day I was getting gas and when the pump clicked off, it was $66 and my heart did a little "aah!' 🙄Reminder to self: sometimes a number is just a number ..
The other day I was watching videos where people share their near death experiences (NDE). I find the stories kind of fascinating. Anyway, one lady who had been struck by lightning was sharing how at one point she was shown some things to come. Most were kind of generic, but one thing she did bring up was the monetary system. That it would collapse snd we would return to more of a barter system. We shall see...
About half the men by the age of 85 have some form of prostate cancer (Life Insurance underwriting stats.) From an underwriting standpoint, unless you develop it when you are young, it is one of the "easier" cancers to underwrite because it is kind of viewed as something older men tend to die with - you just get old. Yes, some forms are more aggressive, and men do die from it, but in general, at those ages, there is a lot more going on.
