  • "JESUS Sittin' in the BARBER CHAIR!"

    in Current Events

    You know how men love to go the Barber Shop and talk trash...sports, politics, women and religion.
    Most times men are real vocval on most subjects..that is until the local preacher comes in and then the tone changes dramatically.  Not as much cussin', ribbin' and shenanigans, etc. 
    When the preacher sits in the chair and starts talkin' about the bible, everybody generally gets quiet! I had a though; what if Jesus was sittin' in the chair next to him. What would the preacher say then? How would his stance change on various topics related to church?
    We gonna have some fun with this one and give you some ammunition the next time one of the hirelings gets in the chair talking about NOTHING!!

  • Vegan - ish? Perhaps a nutrient dense diet should be the real talk

    in Current Events

    What is a vegan diet?  Why should I try a different diet?  Am I getting all the nutrients I need from my food?  Do you have to 'follow' a diet that others are labeling you with?  Perhaps you just eat healthy foods that support your life and body and do the best you can, is that ok?  What is a plant based diet?
    Mielle Chenier-Cowan Rose is the author of Veganish:  The Omnivore's Guide to Plant Based Cooking which allows us to choose that path of nutrition that might suit us as an individual.  This book shares tips on how to get started with food items that you may not be familiar with.  Many recipes are included to balance a diet with nutrients we may be lacking.  Mielle shares her journey with health challenges that caused her to jump a little off the path of vegetarian and a mother to get dense nutrients in to heal the body.

About News

News, weather, traffic, sports. If it's happening, it's being talked about on BlogTalkRadio. Nothing has the power to move us, motivate us or shake us to our core like what's happening in the world, in the nation and in our neighborhoods. We rely on news for big-picture wants and immediate needs: We plan commutes by traffic reports, our outfits by the weather and our vacations by how the stock market performs. Whether current events happen close to home or across the globe, bookmark this category for in-depth discussions about breaking news and current trends by analysts, authors and educators alike. And if you're fascinated by weather, engage with fellow enthusiasts in conversation about climate change, superstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and more. And it's fun to note that sports – often paired with news, but here a category entirely its own – have rescued many people's social lives, built solely around team schedules.
