    An Alcoholic Family in Crisis with Alberta Sequira

    in Family

    Alcoholism is a family disease, a deadly one that cannot be fought by the substance abuser alone. That said, it is always an uphill battle. Those close to the alcoholic suffer tremendously. Logic does not work when dealing with addicts, nor does pleading or crying. We cannot force them to get help. We can only love and support them, give them every reason to want sobriety for themselves, and then pray that they will choose survival.


    Today's special guest, Alberta Sequeira has lived this nightmare and fought this battle twice; first with her husband, and then with her daughter. Tragically, both of these battles were lost. Her husband and daughter both succumbed to their diseases. In the hopes that other families suffering similar addictions will recognize the problem, come out of hiding, and seek help without fear or embarrassment, Alberta has shared her story. She has written two hearfelt memoirs; Someone Stop This Merry-Go-Round: An Alcoholic Family in Crisis, and Please, God, Not Two: This Killer Called Alcoholism.


    Alberta Sequeira is a writer, four-time award winning author, motivational speaker, and director/producer/co-host of a Massachusetts Cable TV show. She also teaches workshops for writers. Today she will tell her story, sharing hope and inspiration to all.

    Thirty-Four: It's Almost Over (Thank God)

    in Hockey

    The end of the long, dull, maddening grind that Kings fans everywhere refer to as "the regular season" is thankfully almost here. With four games left to play in just six days, the Kings have a chance to finish as high as 2nd in the Pacific division (giving them home ice in the first round of the playoffs) or as low as, uh, not in the playoffs at all. That's weird, right? We'll discuss it with our guest Mike (@mikeFAIL) of Matchsticks & Gasoline, SBN's blog for the Calgary Flames. The Kings & Flames will play Thursday with Los Angeles looking to leapfrog them in the standings, so hopefully tonight's episode will not devolve into mindless shouting. Also, we'll probably pause to spit on the grave o-uh, I mean eulogize the 2014-15 San Jose Sharks. Fun times!

    Almost Famous Friday's

    in Entertainment

     Robert Kopecky, author of How to Survive Life (and Death), A Guide to Happiness in This World and Beyond, recently released by Conari Press/Weiser Books (and gratefully well-received!) It's a serious, but fun book from someone with unusual qualifications.The book is based on my three very compelling, and distinctively different Near Death Experiences, and what I learned about life from each of them. My emphasis isn't on scenarios of the afterlife, but on the nature and meaning of each of the three experiences; not about what heaven looks like, but about how to make this life look a bit more heavenly


     David Denkenberger,is a research associate at the Global Catastrophic Risk Institute. My book is called "Feeding Everyone No Matter What" and presents alternate food supplies if agriculture is disrupted by events like abrupt climate change or nuclear winter. Solutions range from the conventional (e.g. growing mushrooms on dead trees) to the exotic (e.g. eating bacteria grown in natural gas).
