There are funny men, and then there are legends; Don Rickles is firmly in the latter category, having kept America laughing for over 50 years. Now he is bringing laughter to bergenPAC on October 13th with his one-of-a-kind humor. Rickles took his first step toward national fame in 1957 when Frank Sinatra wandered into the small Hollywood nightclub where Rickles was performing. The still-unknown Rickles eyed Sinatra and said, “I just saw your movie, The Pride and the Passion, and I want to tell you, the cannon’s acting was great. And, make yourself at home, Frank. Hit somebody.” Sinatra doubled up laughing and became one of Rickles’ biggest boosters among Hollywood celebrities. Rickles soon became the “in” comic among Hollywood stars, who flocked to his nightclub engagements to become the targets of his insults.

As more and more players in the real estate market continue to realize and capitalize on these opportunities, the market continues to improve steadily across each of the three main sectors of the market, including industrial, office, and retail

A little knowledge can be a painful thing. One August night, April McCafferty stopped at McDonald's for a favorite snack, French fries dipped in Ranch dressing.
Unless you live in a cave — and McCafferty lives above ground in Southern California — you know that fries aren't health food. This night, though, she learned a horrifying fact. That ranch packet? It oozed with 30 percent more fat than the fries.

Tip of the Week: One group of muscles you want to avoid working at the gym is those of the jaw.
I consider myself to be a fairly gregarious fellow. I especially enjoy chatting with people who share my love of exercise — just not in the gym. Or, if I do, it's after I've finished my workout.
To my mind, you need to treat your workout as you would a job. You have work to do and a limited amount of time in which to do it. The more focused and efficient you are at your work, the faster you will progress, both in your career and in your training.
