Book Review- Boom!: Voices of the Sixties and Beyond : Personal Reflections of the '60S and Today

Brokaw likens the book to a virtual class reunion, the class of 1968, He says he acts as a class president who gets the conversation started and lets the class members take off from there.

Connections with New York City- Sort of.

I just returned from a vacation in New York City, the first time I had ever visited "the Big Apple." While we were there we attended 3 Broadway plays.

The first; Avenue Q, billed as Sesame Street for adults, or Sesame Street meets South Park, was hilarious, but definitely adult.

The '60s

A friend just sent me a link to a cool video about the sixties, that I thought I would share with all of you.  

So, I started thinking, could be dangerous I know.   

Sleep disorders

A few weeks ago I found that I suffer from a sleep disorder. In finding information on Sleep Apnea I found that

"…Sleep disorders are thought to affect 40 million people in the United States alone. The total cost to the public that result from these disorders are almost impossible to estimate,

as they include not only medical care costs but also accident costs, since accidents often are associated with sleep deprivation. (from Sleep and Breathing by edited by Claude Lenfant, Published by Marcel Dekker Inc, New York 1994)

New Years Resolutions

Many of us make new years resolutions.  The idea is to change some things ourselves, or about their lives. Things like:
  • Loose weight
  • Get in shape
  • Eat healthier
  • Exercise more
  • Learn how to use the computer

Many people break those resolutions by February.
Somewhere I heard that in order for something to become a habit you have to repeat it 21 times.  
So theoretically if we do some thing everyday for 3 weeks, it will be come a habit and become much easier to continue.
