Paul is off to the dentist today. Imagine a time not too long ago when men went to their barber for dental work! A tool of the trade was one of these "tooth keys" I picked up a few years ago. Im sure you can imagine how it was used. Almost like opening a bottle of wine!
Interesting factoid: The red and white pole outside barber shops references a time when barbers were expected to perform bloodletting and other medical and dental procedures to heal the sick; red represented blood and white represented bandages. #oddities

I suoi insegnanti lo ricordano come uno studente molto dotato, che si dedicava ai testi più disparati e amava interpretare le opere di William Shakespeare .
Un cultore dell'arte, appassionato di Teatro, ovviamente di musica e allievo modello di #DanzaClassica tanto da arrivare ad interpretare il "Re dei topi" nel balletto "Lo Schiaccianoci". Considerato il rapper più grande e influente mai esistito, nonostante la scomparsa a soli venticinque nel settembre 1996 a Las Vegas, Shakur ha pubblicato una grande quantità di album, tra i quali figurano lavori come All Eyez on Me, Me Against the World e il suo Greatest Hits nel 1998, tutti catalogati fra gli album musicali più venduti di sempre negli Stati Uniti d'America.
Parliamo di #Tupac , un artista controverso, attivista, apprezzato per la simpatia contagiosa, il senso dell'umorismo e la facilità che dimostrava nel comporre poesie...
"Alcune persone dicono che fossi un thug o un gangsta. Altre persone probabilmente mi ricordano come un poeta o un leader nato. Ma io dico di misurare un uomo dalla totalità delle sue azioni, compiute attraverso tutta la sua vita, dall'inizio alla fine."
Uno dei tanti musicisti dell'"olimpo" musicale.
Siate voi stessi, abbiate la forza di dimostrare quanto valete e fate in modo di essere ricordati per ciò che siete e non per ciò che vorreste sembrare.

John Valerius was born in Upper Palatinate in Germany in 1667 without arms. Not even stumps. His shoulders were perfectly smooth and rounded, with one exception: the right shoulder had a thumb poking out. Adding to his peculiarity, his chest featured a feminine breast.
But Valerius didn’t let a little thing like no arms and a boob hold him back. He learned to compensate for his lack of limbs with his feet and toes, developing remarkable dexterity—much like his limbless contemporary Matthew Buchinger who was born several years after him.
After his parents passed away while he was still young, Valerius headed out into the world to earn a living. His talented feet led him to various countries, where he cashed in on his unique appearance and skills. He eventually landed in London, where he performed from 1698 to 1705. In 1820, Volume 6 of Kirby’s Wonderful and Eccentric Museum offered a thorough description of Valerius’s performance: “Beating a drum, —Shaving himself, and combing his wig,—Elevating his leg to his head, and with his great and adjoining toe, he was enabled to take his hat off, and make an obeisance, standing in an erect posture. He writes with his right foot, keeping the paper steady on the ground with his left. He plays at cards, holding the cards between his toes, and throws dice with great dexterity...” ___ Read the rest of “A Rambling Description from 1820 of Armless Wonder John Valerius” at WeirdHistorian.com.
