…Was your  weekend a chilly one like mine?  Yikes, it’s cold out.

…Since it’s the start to a new week, let’s learn some random things:

-People watched  1 billion movie trailers on YouTube for the first three quarters of 2013.
The first movie trailer was for “The Pleasure Seekers” in 1913

-Top Five Restaurant Chains in Billions of $’s:
#1 McDonald’s  $35.6
#2 Subway  $12.1
#3 Starbucks  $10.6
#4 Wendy’s  $8.6
#5 Burger King  $8.5

-In 1964, four in ten adults in the US smoked; today fewer than two in ten do.

-Last week a former Miss Venezuela and her husband were murdered by robbers and their five year old daughter was shot in the leg when the robbers placed spiked in the mountain road, slashing their car tires.
Last year in Venezuela, 24, 800 murders occurred in a population of 29 million.
By contrast, the US has 14,600 murders in a population of 316 million.
Arrests are made in only eight of every 100 homicides committed in Venezuela.  More than 60% of victims are shot five or more times.

-45 million photographs are uploaded to Instagram every day.

-There are almost 48,000 Afghan and Iraq vets that are homeless

-“The Wolf Of Wall Street” broke the record for most F-bombs in a movie with 506.”

….This is some advice I need to reminded of quite often:

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live a life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”- Henry David Thoreau
