Today is Usain Bolt's birthday, turning 32 years of age.  A talent for the ages, with an electrifying personality, he's certainly worth looking at in the context of success on a big stage.

Today is National Radio Day.  I hope that you have a favorite local radio station and that you listen to it regularly.  If you don't, I encourage you to check your FM dial for something that moves you and grooves you.
