Watch a Fascinating Interview with Omar Sharif - YouTube

Russian commisarie
wanderingsalsero's insight:

When I read the headline here I assumed it was true b/c I know Imar Sharif (OS) was a great actor (is he dead now?).  This interview was more interesting than I expected.

 

First of all, it was made in 2004 yet he sounds remarkably prescient about international Western vs. Muslim politics.  He says a lot of stuff that makes it sound like he had a crystal ball.

 

Secondly, I LOVE listening to people speak, like OS, who know what they think and how to articulate it.  William Buckley Jr. was that way too. I could listen to people like that for hours.

 

Check this interview out.  It's enjoyable.

James And The Giant Peach [1996] - YouTube

Share your videos with friends, family, and the world
wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is one of my ALL-TIME-FAVORITE-MOVIES. I actually had it in my memory that the name was "James and the Magic Peach" but apparently the peach was just 'giant' on only somewhat magic. The magic was in those little green bugs....and then in James' heart.

 

Anyway, it's one of those movies that just goes by in such a hurry. Everybody should watch it at least twice a year.

 

Time Burton, who was the Producer or something, also did some other similarly cool movies which I would guess are also on YouTube.

Carmen Miranda - Cuanto Le Gusta - YouTube

É carnaval no Leonor! #sambadasantiga
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I really like here outfit here....and notice that thing in her hair that's nice too.

 

The only thing I thought was strange was the stupid drama, with the dramatic glances from the women at the table, amongst each other about halfway through the routine. Maybe it actually made sense if you saw the movie.

 

This is Carmen Miranda...apparently without or maybe even before she was know for having all the fruit in her hair.

Here's What Happened When One City Gave Homeless People Shelter Instead of Throwing Them in Jail

Here's What Happened When One City Gave Homeless People Shelter Instead of Throwing Them in Jail | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
While many cities continue to criminalize the homeless population, one city tried giving them homes.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I say"God Bless Salt Lake City" for doing this. It's easy to scorn homeless people. I've been guilty of it myself. But since then I've realized how tenuous any situation in life is and that everybody deserves basic respect.

 

Sure, some people get help and either can't handle it or take advantage of it without being looking at it as the blessing from God that it is. But my heart goes out to many of these people who have a heart humbled by the homeless experience.

 

I think we all should help homeless people when we can because life has a strange way of turning 'on a dime' and we never know when we'll need a blessing ourselves, or karma or whatever you want to call it. God sees every little act of kindness we give too.

LifeVantage LifeStories featuring Blue & Raelene Elam - Master Pro 10
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Here's another nice testimonial video from LifeVantage.  What's interesting about this one is that these people are obviously successful but the haven't put all their rewards into being ostentatious but rather acquiring the things necessary to be a successful family.

 

He talks about 'hanging drywall' on his days off and I can certainly relate to that. I remember back in my mobile windshield repair business, although I liked the work most of the time, I never felt good about taking time off (it was either 'feast or famine' those last few years). I was always worried that I 'wasn't there' when a client called, they'd never call me again (and I had a good amount of repeat business).

 

I've always said that it would be nice to have a business that not only allows you to always be friendly and nice (i.e. as opposed to being an asshole like modern business seems to require you to be frequently). One of the best things about MLM is that you are supposed to always be nice (even when it's an issue of 'tough love').

The 78-year-old was holding a sign claiming she needed cash for food. According to Daniel Ayala, he had given her money on a few occasions even when he didn't have enough money to pay for his own lunch.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is just another piece in the puzzle I've seen coming together in Thailand lately. Even going back to the late 60's, and before, when I was in Vietnam, Thailand was a magical place of peace and beauty and happiness.

 

I think you can still find some of those elements there but not to the degree they used to be. Thailand is getting to be a much more dangerous place (compared to what it used to be).

 

Regarding this piece of news, my guess is that the Russians paid somebody to have this guy snuffed.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

I learned a lot about Tim Burton here. I especially like his views on the difference between kids and adults (which he says is a very blurred area....or should be anyway).

 

I've always admired people who could devote their lives to being creative. Maybe that's why I enjoyed being a musician in my early years and why I enjoy dancing so much now (which there's none of around here)...i.e. because every dance is different and creative (especially when you've got a really capable partner that you connect with).

Very Young Girls | Girls Educational & Mentoring Service (GEMS)

Very Young Girls | Girls Educational & Mentoring Service (GEMS) | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is a very important subject that gets very little attention and is very easy to ignore, by most people, even when it surfaces briefly on their radar. I first heard about www.agapaewebsite.org a few weeks ago.

 

This video is one of several on their website. I'm not sure if this particular video pertains to their mission (they operate a rescue operation in Cambodia but their headquarters is apparently in California) or just the general subject of sex trafficking of young girls.

 

I sent them some money last month and I'm sending some more now. Probably $25. I think it's a very worthy cause.

 

From what I've heard lately, Cambodia is a nice place right now.

I think the blush is off the Thailand rose. SE Asia still has a lot to offer but I think the 'trendy' place is moving to Cambodia and possibly. A friend of mine, well experienced in that part of the world, tells me Jakarta is one of the hottest spots in SE Asia now.

 

Although, to be honest, were it not so expense (compared to SE Asia), I think S.Korea, and specifically, Seoul, would be the funnest place for a dancer to live.

LifeVantage LifeStories featuring Tyler & Tasha Daniels - Master Pro 10 - YouTube

LifeVantage LifeStories featuring Tyler & Tasha Daniels - Master Pro 10
wanderingsalsero's insight:

I'm writing a short article about this company and I always go through the company's website to get a feel for who they are and what their culture is. This is a company I've written about once before, briefly, but I remember liking their testimonials.

 

This couple, Tyler and Tasha Daniels, are very successful in the company and on this video they way something that I agree with:

 

They said that (1) Network marketing 'levels the playing field' and virtually anybody an 'do it' if they just persevere. And Tasha commented that 'there's perfecting in the process', i.e. it's a personal growth experience that works resolutely.

 

One thing I've learned from my exposure in this job I do now is that it really doesn't make much difference what MLM company you're with (within reasonable parameters of course) because people buy 'you' first'. I think that's why most uber-successful MLM people are good people (not all of'em...but MOST of'em).

 

I've never been able to understand why every dance instructor or dance studio owner in the world isn't in one of these nutrition companies. To me, it just makes so much sense.
