Learning About Something New – Arabic Greetings

I attended mass this morning at the Our Lady of Lourdes Cathedral here in Los Angeles, and had a wonderful revelation as I was listening to the gospel. The monsignor told a story about how he traveled to the Holy Land a few months ago and was  asked to say a few words to the crowd at the end of their mass. He started out by saying to the crowd “alssalam ealaykum” which means “Peace Be with You.”  


As Americans I pray for those abroad who are Christians in areas of the world where there is so much fighting and hate going on. To be a strong advocate for Christ during these times can be difficult, but when we eliminate that fear and trust in God, nothing can hold you down. Learning a lil bit of Arabic and opening our minds to the truth about Islam will usher in Peace and Hope for the future.

Learning About Something New – What is Movember?

Today is day 4 of my 365 Days of Learning Something New journey. On my spare time I drive for a couple of Ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft. As a rideshare driver you are coming in contact with a lot of interesting people or characters is what I like to call them.

On this one particular ride I picked up a guy and had to take him to an area in LA that I love called Marina Del Ray. This is an area close to the water and in the direction of my home.  So that is what is cool when you pick someone up and they are headed in your direction. As we were talking about How I got started driving for Rideshare Companies. I told him that I’m currently writing a script because my rideshare rides fuel my creativity. I mentioned that this ride will be a part of one of my episodes. In mentioning that It made me think about casting someone who resembles my rider who had a short mustache, kinda like Charles Chaplin. The rider mentioned that he was growing out his mustache for Mo-vember. I was like what is Mo-vember? For the month of November men will grow out their mustaches in support for those dealing with prostate cancer. I said to him that is awesome idea especially since my Uncle just passed away and the males in my family are high risk of getting it. I learned something new and it’s for a good cause.

So if you are a male sign up with the Movember Foundation and grow your mustache out. For the month of November help spread awareness about prostate cancer!
