SORT BY Relevancy
Joining Melissa and myself, is of course Sam Way, and latter on Deborah Berry. God, don't let me burn this night up! It get's better. Jeff Gabbard stops by LIVE! from the Downtown Milton Studio. Jeff is the Fire Chief of the Cambridge City Fire Department by 24/7, and Indiana Deputy Fire Marshall by 7 days a week. Oh, EMS, Nurse, Master Firefighter, even a drag car racer. Let's talk about Fire Safety and prevention. Jeff and both his 'staffs' did just that this past week, going into the schools and addressing citizens about 'blazing hell' - which turns into trauma for someone. We learned not to play with matches, and graduated to smoke alarms and personal fire extengushers. But, MR and MRS TBI (or Miss), do you know when to use, HOW to use, or properly checked the fighting apperatice?
Need help? Take notes. This is a fantastic opportunity to discus fire, EMT and first-respoce questions. Have any? Ever been on the other side, where you was the FIRST needing response, but was, uh, knocked out or something?
More first responce of the lawful side is expected. Milton Police Chief Josh Russell may stop by, time permitting (busy schedule that EVER changes, he has) and discuss house and home safety, neighborhood watch programs and just what to do if that weird looking goblin' hangs around your house too long during Halloween. Josh is also an emergency responder, thank you God - he's done it at my house a FEW times. My version of C.O.P.S. - Concerned, Offering Police Service. Talk to an officer, share and trade TBI concerns of living alone, confussion and efforts by both us, and them. Register.
Yep, Sting said I could, so I'm playing The Police during breaks tonight....
MEEP MEEP!! ACME Cleaners, Inc...
Co-host Melissa Meeps joins me, and hopefully a lot of Peep's too, as we talk about cleaning out the house, literally and mentally. Usually reserved for March or April and 'Sprinig Cleaning' season, uh, I'm a little slow, so Fall it is. . So, before the LONG winter ahead for all of us clipped-winged Snow BIrds, I best clean 'my house' to my approval, so I an live more comfortable in quiet. And possibly, then come next year, I can LITERALLY make a LEAP in 2015 without solace. Admittedly, I struggle with folks that have NO SOCIAL skills in place. . Struggle hard. Sure, it frustrates me greatly that most Survivors re-learned 'friendships' from their past involvements, learned to share solid words on their own, without guidance (don't get me started there). The Big EYE, as in 'I' often overtakes recovery and puts us at our own level. Eventually, its time to come back home. Lot's of 'I's' in this world, a lot. I just spent the week lilstennig to many of our radio network's offerings. The "I's"' have it maxed out. Thanks listeners, for making TMDS about US....BTW: glitches in the 'routine' this week set me back, but Meeps! and Sam will lead the Way! If not, well, just another glitch WE have to overcome - with a smile!
Next week, Jeff Gabbard of the Indiana State Fire Marshall will be in studiio (for real), offering tips on FIRE PREVENTION AND SAFETY WEEK. 2013 Canadian 'Courage' Awardee and 2014 'Beyond Truama Super Hero' Michael Coss will call in from the great (soon to be) white north! We've each won the same, rarely issued awards in the past few years. Anticipate insperation from a pair of voices never before heard together (except by us).
Nope, not a Comedy Club where folks make fun of TBI, in fact let US TBI Survivors enjoy a night on the "town" (well, Connersville anyway)! Draining, a bit, sure. But smiled, laughed, observed, enjoyed, visited and certanly, was ready to go home. But after the show, which was over by 'funtastic' 10 p.m. Yes, in time for meds and beds.
Can you go out on the town? Make sure friends and trusted folks are around, if need be. But only if need be. Enjoy the moment, and most importantly - allow your 'date' or 'sidetripper' to enjoy the night too? Well, it takes practice to be social. So well discuss a few SOCIAL SKILLS tonight, which doesn't mean buying the next drink, or flirting beyond control.
I personally spent the evening with TMDS Medical Director Kevin Butterfild and crew on Saturday in his "comedian" role, which is every day, all day long. A survivor of a TBI at a young age, Kevin enjoys the moments of the day, well, usually that is. HA!!! He, funny man (and he is!) Jimmy Roberson open the nights parade of humor, ADULT HUMOR, Closed by Headliner Comic Matt Holt. Guess who recorded the show, for you to here. So, send the kids to bed in about an hour, and we'll listen in for an hour or so. Funny, with the normal comedy club routines of relationships, sex, gender, race if not creed. AND of course make fun of themselves too! Its a COMEDY SHOW. No pure predjudices or direct offensive remarks intended directly towards any one.
So, as we laugh and try to "enjoy" our brain injuries on TMDS every Sunday, enjoy with a toungue in cheek. Or what ever that is in your mouth....
We’re going at a higher rate of speed tonight from the downtown Milton studio, for this weekend TBI Awareness race car driver Ernie Francis Jr. took a whole world of survivors to the top. Co-hosts 'Meeps' will Peep in, and Sam has his Way. TMDS Medical Director Kevin Butterfield is watching his coffee perk, he'll be here. My buddy Matthew Olsen will contact us from Michigan in the second hour, let's advise him of what we know. AND, the third hour by Skype if not Stealth is our lovely, er, professional TBI Correspondent from South Africa, Gina Gee.
Not only winning the annual Virginia International Speedway Trans American TA3 race today, but becoming the youngest driver EVER to win a Trans American championship was Ernie Francis Jr. in the TA3 Division Series. Yep, our MAN is 16. Not sure he owns a razor yet. With his season’s fifth overall win in TransAm this afternoon, his #98, or #9 (even #86 if it worked for you), Junior runs also for YOU, TBI Survivors. In fact, several of us passed away or still kickin’ had our names wrtitten right on top of the camaro this weekend, for the entire racing world to see. He has NOT been influenced by a survivor in his life, nor really knew any, until this summer. His primary infuence comes from God, and his dad. Junior simply wishes to promote what he KNOWS can happen anytime they buckle up on the track, or you do on the highway. Ask my friend John Mills. Young but a senior in high school is well grounded, having met and stayed with his crew and dad at Mid-Ohio. His father Ernie owns and operates (works so hard too) Breathless Performance Racing. He’s driving the beautiful hauler down the road to Miami now. Let’s see if we can reach the Champs…
James ‘Flaming Eagle’ Mooney is an American Native Black Seminole, and a bloodline descendant of Seminole Medicine Man and War Chief Osceola and his escaped African American slave wife. James is also the namesake and bloodline descendant of one James Mooney, Irish-Scottish son of Irish Catholic immigrants, and American born U.S. Citizen. James Mooney was employed as an Ethnologist at the Smithsonian Institute, Washington D.C. Here is an account of three men doing everything in their power to assist the indigenous peoples and their ancient ceremonies of North America to survive the onslaught of atrocities perpetrated by misguided United States government agencies for more than 200 years.
War Chief Osceola was an influential Seminole leader who fought the United States to a standstill in the Florida Everglades, during the second Seminole War, also known as the Florida War of 1835. James’s ancestral family fought the U.S. military in an attempt to stop the expulsion of our First Nations people from their ancestral homeland and bringing about the deliberate annihilation of our indigenous culture.
In 1918, James’s forefather James Mooney fought a war of words before Congress, successfully halting the passage of a Peyote law that was designed to make illegal the entire American Native way of life. Pointedly, the dominant Christian religious mainstream sought to end our earth-based ceremonies and healing and empowerment rites, supplanting these traditions with those imported from across the seas. Of late, this codified denial of our constitutionally guaranteed religious freedom was promoted and enforced by a federal agency known as the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). James’s great grandfather’s successful defense of our sacrament before Congress was a first step in a long journey to restore and maintain our ancient heritage.

Jane Jackson is the Information and Resource Director for the Brain Injury Association of Georgia and a Certified Brain Injury Specialist. She has worked with BIA of Georgia for the past 7 years and covers the state handling requests from survivors, families and the medical professionals who serve them-among many other "hats" she wears for BIA of Georgia. Working one-on-one with individuals, she provides personalized help, resources and education about brain injury and symptoms. Jane is also the wife of Waring Jackson who sustained a brain injury from a motorcycle accident 14 years ago. He was sent home after 2 weeks in the trauma center and told "if you have a headache take 2 aspirin". He looked ok, he talked ok but inside he knew something was wrong. He was one of the thousands of walking, talking "silent epidemics" you hear about in the news. He masked his changes with humor for 3-4 years before admitting he needed help. Together Jane and Waring discovered his personality change, short term memory, fatigue, depression - among other symptoms - were from his accident. Thus began their long road to rehabilitation and adapting to his "new normal".

Led Zepplin, and Roy Orbison as well found Communication Breakdown so important to share - they played songs about it! And, you listened!! Now, what was the song about? I thought you was listening! Did you not understand the song? Did you not understand what I just said? Hey - Do you ever listen to me!
Listen tonight, lets share a very frustrating situation between TBI and 'normal' society (yes, family counts too). In fact, we all have communication breakdowns, be it social, relationship, work or 'just hanging around' with the fella's. And though many of us Survivors are open ended, the closed mind of others occasionally break us down so, it's time to walk away or worse yet - argue. Let me share some ideas from a recent "Help Me Help You" education conference I atttended. Let you share some ideas of a recent communication breakdown, and let's work on it. I got a world full of interested brain injury survivors and caregivers to offer a hand. Let's talk. (424) 243-9540.
Melissa Meeps will stop by, and introduce a new segment on TMDS called "Meep's Peeps" and co-host Sam Way will drift in to explain his new segent "Sam's Way". Dr. Kevin Butterfield will drive in and out as well. We're talking about 'whatever' and of course, racing (gonna like this info). However, his agent didn't care for the name of his segment - "Butt's Nuts".
Officially unofficial (but real close) TMDS begins its 3rd season this week. See? Unrealilstic Belief is still dominating my life!!!
Such as a TBI, where has the time flown by? Wasn't it just last week we started this show? Over 100 episodes, 109 at last count. Thank you all, for allowing me into your life. I mean, I look to do well, and do mean well - always. Get confused still? God, I HOPE that's the TBI problem - for if it isn't, now I'm really confused!!!
As in the past opening acts of a new season on BIRN, we'll start by visiting the Annual TBI Suvivors Education Conference presented by the Indiana Brain Injury Association. Lora Miller has provided a wonderful effort towards education for and of brain injury's with Education in the forefront. Social moments, perhaps not the gathering of old, but available and will be worked on. Trust me, she's on my speed dial!!! But, hosted on the campus of Methodist Hospital in downtown Indianapolils is an elaborate and one of 18-model Neuroscience Research Buildings nation-wide, the focus was indeed on BI's and information. National speakers was of the best of their trades. Listen in tonight, we'll play an offering or three. OUR TBI Race team that wasn't in Utah for the World Championships also attended, with John MIlls stealing the show (he looks like Richard Gere) and hearts of insperation, and TMDS Medical Director Kevin Butterfield greeting, and surely I did something our presentations kicked off in a big way.
I indeed talked to Olivia Keith, daughter of TBI Survivor Darcy Keith and now Miss PreTeen Indiana. More too. We'll touch on what we have time for, and welcome back Sam Way. But what I'd rather take the time for is you, your thoughts, your aspirations of a greater TBI world in which we live...

Lost in TBI sauce of enjoyment, 'vacation', Racin', Golf, Education Conference and me Downtown Milton yard work was simply - a break away from 'society' as I know it to be. I planned, I struggled, and did more than the above during the past 5 weeks. Well, make that 5 1/2 weeks. We will begin with The Best of Matt episode about 'Traumatic Passions' (check out the voices, the callers. Remember these folks?). We'll slip in the back door the studio around 11:30 p.m. to go back LIVE! on the air. Let me tell y'all "What I did on my summer vacation" for the closing hour. Yep, a reverse of what is common for people often will show up to work only to gear down. I'm gonna slam this machine into fourth gear, probably have a chug, and end TMDS second season with, with, with, uh, with...damnit, with FOCUS on going BACK TO BASICS. We often may not forget "where we came from", but struggle with past knowledge of the stratigies created. I'm here to HELP YOU HELP ME... Oh boy, I better get a nap beacuse as Dad used to tell me as a young'in - "Ya best git ta work, boy".
