    Yesterday would have been the late actor, Paul Walker's 42nd birthday. His brothers are continuing to carry on with his legacy. He was one of my favorite actors. Not only was the guy a gorgeous man on the outside, but he truly was on the inside as well. He was someone who gained a lot of money and fame, and truly gave back to help others who were less fortunate. He started his own charity organization, and traveled regularly to areas hit hard by natural disasters. The clip below shows his brothers accepting an award for the charity organization , ROWW(Reach Out Worldwide). RIP, Mr. Walker.

    If you have a career that pays good enough to keep your bills paid and makes you happy, then you're in the lucky few percent (not quite the 1% but pretty close).

    For a growing number of people, it's getting exceedingly more difficult to find work that actually pays the bills...much less affords the disposable income to be "happy" (i.e. hobbies, social engagements, family support, etc).

    Personally, I've decided to stop hating on the people who use paid links to make money. At least they're not pissing on your shoes, harassing you at intersections, asking for change at the supermarkets, or breaking into your home. But that's just my point of view. icon_wink.gif

    Nope. I wish. He stayed at one of my neighbors homes for 6 months. Why he lived there, in a middle class neighborhood, I never asked. I just know that they were very good friends that enjoyed really nice cars. That neighbor has also moved away. To be honest, if he had ever had gone to one of our community events I would not know who he was. I have never seen any of his movies.
