June 3,2014 Theme: Cheese

Kathy was our Toastmaster today.  She chose "cheese" as the theme. She shared many interesting facts about cheese. Kraft created Velveeta on June 2, 1918.  Americans eat thirtyone  pounds of cheese per person per year. Pizza Hut uses 300 million pounds of cheese each year to make pizza.

Robert was our first speaker today.  He completed project 9 in the CC manual.  The title of his speech was " Finite and Infinite Games." He based his talk on a book by the same name written by James P. Carse. Robert discussed the difference between finite and infinite games. Life is the only example of an infinite game. Play it well and it can be a game changer.

Jean was our second speaker.  She completed project 2 in the CC manual.  The title of her talk was "Shake It Off."  Jean used audience participation to show us how we can move on and not dwell on our mistakes. Women especially have challenges with confidence. What we think creates positive and negative connections.  Positive thoughts combined with physical movement takes the 'monster" out of our mistakes.

We had two guests join us today.  Gabriella and Sue learned about our club from Meetup.  Guests are always welcome.  We hope you will join us next week.


  1. I enjoyed both speeches and have added two new books to my collection; "Finite and Infinite Games" that Robert spoke about and the "Confidence Code" that Jean referenced in her speech.

  2. Good minutes, Kate. You have the knack of getting to the heart of the meeting. It is super fun to be the speaker.
