Sad news…Award-winning author, poet, and civil rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou has died at the age of 86. This is by no means a touching tribute, but my personal connection to Maya dates back to college when I took a Women Studies class…saying you were reading Maya Angelou was a sure fire way to impess a lady, so I thank Maya for that!
Last week, Maya posted what is now her final tweet…she wrote:
Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.
That’s a powerful last tweet…that got me thinking maybe I need to be more aware of what I write, as you never know it could be your last tweet…for example…here is the last tweet I posted (at the time I wrote this blog):
Here is Toppy’s last tweet (posted on Easter…yes, Topshelf is very active on the Twitter):
Michael Bennett from the Hawks is having a fun event this Saturday afternoon to raise money and awareness for his charity, Ocean! (fighting obesity through community, education, activity and nutrition). Here he is talking about his charity event this Saturday!
In addition to Michael being there, there will be other Seahawks players to meet! Guys like, Percy Harvin, Bruce Irvin, Kam Chancellor, Jermaine Kearse, Malcolm Smith, Doug Baldwin Jr., and more! The event will be this Saturday from 1 PM until 4 PM at the Columbia Tower Club. Hell..I’ll be there!
Recently, I saw that Michael Bennett got to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at a Mariners game…check out his Instagram post about it:
Thankfully he doesn’t have an arm like 50 Cent! 50 Cent threw out the first pitch at a Mets game yesterday...and the ball went about 20 feet left of home plate. In fact, it was so bad that it almost hit a cameraman! This made me laugh out loud when I first watched it! Make sure you aren’t drinking coffee while watching this!
Huge thanks to Bert Kreischer for joining us this morning. Bert is the host of Trip Flip on the Travel Channel, and is one funny dude! He has a great new book out called “Life Of The Party”…I got it yesterday and I am almost done reading it already! It feels like Bert is telling you these crazy stories in a room with you as you read it. As a non-reader, it’s a must read…hell, it’s “Lulu Approved”!
