Welcome to the CablesAndKits CEO daily email. Read more about this email by scrolling to the very bottom.
We had a great time with our friends at Great Wolf Lodge! It’s two hours from our house … if you have kids or grandkids I’d say it’s worth a couple hour drive to go!
On the way home I was able to pickup my motorhome from service being done on it. My wife dropped me off on the way home so I didn’t have to drive the TOAD (RV slang for tow vehicle) up there and pull it back. As I left the parking lot I was like MAN this thing is peppier! Then I realized I wasn’t towing the car – haha. Now to get ready for our FIRST family camping trip this Friday!
I’m mentally preparing tonight for the video shoot tomorrow. I’ve been an extra in a movie once before with a friend so I’ve seen first hand how many things go into filming something, but holy cow – there is a LOT going on to prep for this shoot tomorrow by the producer, director, and crew. They brought a wrecked car onsite today and got it on its side. That’s part of the story that’s being shot there tomorrow. I helped pull a few last minute things together for them which was fun. My grading contractor had a lot of fun beating up the car with his skid steer getting it on its side too 😉
Did I mention that I was asked to be in the video? I’ll be a guy that stops at a wreck but DOESN’T help and drives off. I’ll be honest – I’ve struggled with that!! I decided to take my glasses off and shave so it doesn’t look as much like me lol.
Thinking about all this has me daydreaming about a fun project I thought of years ago. I’m quick witted and find the humor in everything. I thought it would be a blast to have a YouTube show where me and other funny people sit and write out jokes for tv, movies, etc. The thought of the laughs that would come from finding the humor in any subject is exciting. All shows (Seinfeld, Saturday Night Live, etc) have writers that sit there and come up with the situations and material. I thought I’d call the show “how the sausage is made” lol.
I don’t know if it’s true, but I heard …
Researches have found that flossing your teeth can help your memory. Flossing prevents gum disease, which prevents stiff blood vessels, which cause memory issues.
