This week is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. I loved the series "From the Earth to the Moon." It really captures the difficulty and drama of the space program. I loved "Apollo 13" and "Hidden Figures" as well. "First Man" was probably one of the worst movies I ever saw.
I think my mantra for this week will be "If we can put a man on the moon, then I can loose 30 pounds." When you think of all the work that went into the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, it is very humbling. The kind of knowledge, problem solving and ingenuity that people are capable of is amazing. Especially since they didn't have computers.
