Lowe's Success, Movie Reviews

If you didn’t know how old you are, how old would you think you are? Good question and while I know must everyone knows their birth dates I think this question can be used to analyze why aging becomes such a big deal. It seems that aging or growing old is the big topic of many conversations. Just this past week I was invited to speak at the Lowe’s Wellness Center in my old home town of Littlefield, Texas, about my 11 points of ageless living. Lowe’s happens to be owned by my long time friend Roger Lowe, Sr. and he has done an outstanding job of building this company and employing some really good people. Even though the company has grown into a multi-million dollar company he has kept his corporate office in Littlefield and continues to grow with increased sales and expansion. Not only that he does it with a great philosophy of honesty in his dealings and state of the art business principles. It is so good to see this type of business and to think Roger and I have been friends since the fifth grade and even played football together through Jr. High, High School and College. We were both raised by business parents and received great training from them with entrepreneurial spirit taught to us from the very beginning. They always taught us to be ourselves and never waive from that. I can say regardless of the financial success Roger has earned he has never waivered in being his true self. What a guy and what an organization he and his employees have built. Now, the answer to my question! If I didn’t know my birth day I would guess my age at 28. Now you got it, thanks for asking!!

Movie Reviews: “Arthur”, ***, A remake of the original 1981 version starring Dudley Moore. This story is built around billionaire Arthur Bach, a young man born into wealth and never amounting to anything. He is raised by a nanny and still being taken care of by her as a young adult. While his father died when he was a child his mother was a heartless business person. She finally got tired of his useless nature and forced him into agreeing to marry a woman who would show him the ropes of how to operate a business and straighten him out. Fate has different ideas and he really falls in love. No more now, you must go see the end for yourself. Entertaining and well done. Rated PG-13 for alcohol use throughout, sexual content, language and some drug references.

“Hanna”, ***, A very good action movie with another new twist. Academy

Award nominee Saoirse Ronan has the title role, playing a dangerous child raised by her ex-CIA father in the wilds of Finland to operate as a skilled assassin. To liven things up a bit she is sent into the world eluding experienced agents across Europe, on a specific mission(you have to go see it to find out what the mission is). Eric Bana is the ex CIA agent father and Cate Blanchett co-stars as a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own. Very intriguing, go see. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some sexual material and language.

EA, SH.......:)
