TURNING A NEW LEAF ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. STARTING THURSDAY NIGHT OUR SHOWS WILL BE A MAXIMUM OF 30 MINUTES LONG WITH MORE AMERICANA AND REMINISCENT STORIES ABOUT GROWING UP AND LIVING IN AMERICA IN DAYS PAST. I NEED A CHANGE OF PACE AND YOU PROBABLY DO, TOO.  HERE'S OUR SHOW FOR THURSDAY GOING LIVE AT 6 PM. WE'RE GONNA' CALL IT LET'S REMINISCE AND TRY IT OUT FOR A WHILE, BUT I'LL STILL HAVE MY SUNDAY MORNING COING DOWN DEVOTIONALS AND THE OCCASIONAL POLITICAL TIRADE, ONLY SHORTER IN LENGTH.

REMEMBER THE DAYS YEARS AGO WHEN WE GAVE KIDS TIME TO JUST BE KIDS. THEY DIDN'T NEED I-PHONES AND FANCY GADGETS, JUST A FOOTBALL, BASEBALL, BASKETBALL OR HOCKEY STICK.  THEY COULD MAKE THEIR OWN FIELD WITH BASES AND GOAL LINES, ORGANIZE A TEAM IN NO TIME FLAT AND SPEND ENDLESS HOURS PLAYING THEIR HEART OUT.  EVEN AT SCHOOL, THEY WERE GIVEN TIME TO GET RID OF THE STRESSES AND STRAIN BY "RECESS" (UNLIKE COMMON CORE) AND MOMS DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT THEY WERE UP TO BECAUSE EVERY MOM IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD KNEW WHO THEY ALL WERE. IT WAS A DIFFERENT TIME AND, YES, THEY HAD PROBLEMS THEN, TOO, BUT WE DIDN'T HAVE NEARLY AS MANY ALLERGIES AND ALL THE SYNDROMES (ADD,ETC.) GOING AROUND THAT ARE SO PREVALENT TODAY. OBESITY WASN'T NEARLY AS PREVALENT BECAUSE YOU ATE WHAT WAS ON YOUR PLATE OR YOU WENT HUNGRY AND THE PHYSICAL EXERCISE BURNT THE CALORIES.

WE'LL TALK ABOUT THIS WITH A FEW REAL "WAR STORIES" ABOUT THE WAY THINGS WERE. WE CAN APPROACH THE FUTURE BETTER IF WE LEARN FROM THE PAST.  HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
