"The human race will prosper mightily in the years ahead—because ideas are having sex with each other as never before."  Matt Ridley, author of  The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves.  From an article based on the book (which I've just ordered, I was so impressed with the article, it will be a future featured book with 3 tips) in the Wall Street Journal (click here for article.) 
Today's Featured Book:  Art Linkletter's How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life.
You may have noticed in the new that Art Linkletter passed away last week (click here for obit.)

Linkletter was 97 when he passed on a few days ago, after living a full active life to the very end. For the last 3 years he's been on a national book tour for this book he wrote when he was 94, telling us how he did it. It's a great book, I highly recommend it.
Here are three tips from the book to use now:
1.  Don't stop living and learning.
2.  The only thing you should re-tire is your car. Retirement kills!
3.  It's part of our collective wisdom-- along with eating your vegetables and getting a good night's sleep-- that keeping a positive attitude is good for our health.

The only cost is your brain for the brainstorming. Speakers are announced each week on Wednesday or Thursday on, you can RSVP now to make sure you get a seat.
