YOUR TONE OF VOICE TELLS ALL ~ IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SAY, IT’S THE WAY THAT YOU SAY IT

Gain greater awareness of the “tone of voice” of other people. Listen to the way people speak when they are joyous, when they are cheerful, when they are upbeat. Listen to the way people speak when they are calm and relaxed. And listen to the ways people speak when they are impatient or angry.

Thumb

Let every positive tone of voice serve as a reminder for you to speak with a pleasant tone of voice to others. Let every negative tone of voice serve as a reminder for you not to speak that way to others.

Some people can even say the innocuous greeting “good morning” and their tone of voice tells you they hate you.

BEAUTIFUL RENDITION ON THE PAN FLUTE

This is a wonderful rendition of Amazing Grace and the outdoor scenery in the music video is simply spectacular. If you like the song Amazing Grace I think you’ll enjoy this music.

THE MOVIE “BIG”

Zoltar


By Harvey Tobkes

Most youngsters want to be older. Everyone wonders what they will be when they grow up. One boy gets to find this out in a way he had not anticipated. A fortune telling video arcade turns a young child into a man. I am sure most of you have seen the movie Big starring Tom Hanks who plays the adult version of the child. He gets a job at a toy company and quickly moves up the ranks from being behind a computer terminal to being in the board room.

Last year I was in Las Vegas and by serendipity, while window shopping in the Caesar’s Palace Mall, I came across FUN & GAMES MAGICAL EMPIRE. I was shocked to find the original wish machine (from the movie) with the Wizard Zoltar seated inside looking left to right, right to left, programmed to attract clients. My first thought was…What a break; this is my ‘Big’ chance! So, I boldly looked into Zoltar’s glass eyes and made a wish. I’ll give you one guess. Right! I wanted to be young again (simply a reversal of what Tom Hanks wished). I deposited my quarter and waited while Zoltar was contemplating his answer,

There was no POOF, no transformation, Zoltar did not speak a word, but out popped a red card with a message.

WEDDING OF ITALIAN JEWS

Only in Italy could you have a Jewish wedding where a cantor sings a classic Italian love song in Hebrew. Play it all the way through it is truly beautiful.

If you close your eyes the lead singer sounds like a junior version of Andrea Bocelli singing “Con Te Partiro.”

The wedding of this Italian-Jewish couple makes me think of a combination platter of pizza and bagels & lox. Hahaha!

THIS WON’T HAPPEN AGAIN FOR 1000 YEARS

This is a phenomenal year.

It happens only once every 1,000 years.

Add: Your age + your year of birth and it will = 2018.

It is strange and inexplicable. Try it and see.

WHICH WOLF WINS?

——————-Photobucket————–
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between 2 “wolves” inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Two wolves
