    A North Florida Writer "Short Take": Imagine(3)........

    in Lifestyle

    TONIGHT'S SHORT TAKE WILL BE ABOUT A SPECIAL PEEVE OF MINE: THE PERILS OF DINING OUT.  AND NO, IN THIS SHORT OPINION PIECE I'M NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT THE RESTAURANT OR THE WAIT STAFF.  LET'S JUST ASSUME THAT THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT, THE SERVICE IS GREAT AND THE AMBIANCE OF THE LAYOUT AND ACCOUTREMENTS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT ARE SUPERB.  WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT IS THE BEHAVIOR, PRESENTATION AND ATTITUDE OF SOME OF THE DINERS WHO RUIN A NICE EVENING FOR EVERYONE.  I KNOW THAT ALL OF US HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS.


    SO JUST IMAGINE....A GREAT RESTAURANT FILLED WITH NICE, WELL MANNERED AND PRESENTABLE PEOPLE WHO RECOGNIZE MY RIGHT AND YOURS NOT TO BE THROWN INTO "GRAND CENTRAL STATION AT RUSH HOUR".  IF YOU'RE IN A RUSH THERE ARE PLENTY OF DECENT FAMILY ORIENTED FACILITIES THAT MEET YOUR NEEDS AS WELL AS UNTOLD FAST FOOD ESTABLISHMENTS.  THERE ARE ALSO MANY PLACES THAT ESPECIALLY CATER TO KIDS, SO CONSIDER THAT AS WELL.


    AS RODNEY DANGERFIELD SAID: "I DON'T GET NO RESPECT". YOU NEVER WANT TO LEAVE A GOOD RESTAURANT FEELING THAT WAY.


    THE SHOW WILL ACTUALLY START AT 9:02 EASTERN.  I HOPE YOU'LL JOIN ME. DINING OUT, JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE THINGS WE DO IN LIFE AND LIVING IT.

    NORTH FLORIDA WRITER SHORT TAKE: IMAGINE......(4)

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE A WORLD OF UNLIMITED RESOURCES AND MONEY WHERE WE COULD ALL DO AS MUCH AS WE WANT AND USE AS MUCH AS WE WANT WITHOUT EVERY HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF WHAT WE WANT.  I THINK WE'D PROBABLY HAVE TO BE IN HEAVEN TO HAVE SUCH AN OPPORTUNITY BUT, THEN AGAIN, WE OFTEN LIVE TODAY AS IF THINGS ARE UNLIMITED.


    FOOD, SUPPLIES, GOVERNMENT SERVICES, CARS, HOMES, LAND AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT MONEY CAN BUY TODAY IS A SUPPLY AND DEMAND SITUATION.  WHEN SUPPLY OUTPACES DEMAND, IT IS EASIER FOR ALL OF US TO GET WHAT WE WANT. WHEN DEMAND IS GREATER, THE OPPOSITE APPLIES, YET WE OFTEN LIVE AS IF THERE ARE NO LIMITS UNTIL WE HIT THE BRICK WALL: WE CAN'T AFFORD IT OR WE CAN'T GET IT.  AND THE WORST OF IT IS THAT BY THAT POINT WE ARE OUT OF THE ONE ITEM, MONEY, THAT IS NEEDED. THIS APPLIES TO INDIVIDUALS, BUSINESS AND GOVERNMENT.


    TONIGHT WE'LL TALK A LITTLE ABOUT FACING REALITY: IN OUR HOMES, SCHOOLS, WORK, GOVERNMENT, CHURCH AND EVEN LEISURE.  LET'S TRY TO TAKE CARE OF OUR REAL NEEDS BEFORE WE GO AFTER THE WANTS.  IT WILL SAVE US A LOT OF GRIEF AND A LOT OF AGGRAVATION.  SEE YOU TONIGHT AT 9 (ET)

    North Florida Writer Live "Short Take": Imagine...........(5)

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE THAT YOU BUY YOUR BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, YOU NEED TO MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS ON YOUR PROPERTY AND REFINEMENTS AND YOU TAKE CARE OF IT AND THINGS ARE NOW PERFECT.  BUT WAIT, DID YOU GET APPROVAL FOR YOUR ACTIONS? DOES IT MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS AND DID YOU PAY ANY PENALTIES AND FINES ASSESSED FOR NOT FOLLOWING LOCAL, STATE OR FEDERAL REGULATIONS?


    SERIOUSLY, FOLKS, IF YOU THINK THAT A HOME IS A MAN'S (OR WOMAN'S) CASTLE, YOU MIGHT FIND YOURSELF IN FOR A HUGE SHOCK.  AND TODAY MORE AND MORE DIFFERENT AGENCIES AND OFFICES AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT ARE GETTING IN ON THE GRAVY TRAIN OF TAKING YOUR MONEY FOR HAVING THE PRIVILEGE TO OWN LAND IN THEIR JURISDICTION AND IT IS LIKELY TO ONLY GET WORSE IN THE DAYS AHEAD.


    AND IF AND WHEN YOU PAY OFF YOUR MORTGAGE, JUST TRY NOT PAYING PROPERTY TAXES OR OTHER LOCAL ASSESSMENTS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS?  YOU COULD VERY WELL FIND YOURSELF OUT ON THE STREET AND YOU REMAIN AT THE MERCY OF HUNGRY GOVERNMENT AGENCIES THAT ALWAYS WANT TO TAX MORE SO THEY CAN SPEND MORE.


    JUST BE AWARE AND MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND THE RULES BEFORE YOU GET YOURSELF IN A "PICKLE".

    North Florida Writer Live "Short Take 2": Imagine...........

    in Lifestyle

    TONIGHT'S SHORT TAKE WILL BE DEVOTED TO FATHERS AND SONS.  IN TODAY'S CRAZY WORLD, IT'S EASY FOR DAD TO GET WRAPPED UP IN WORK AND THEIR OWN EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES WITH THE RESULT BEING A YOUNG BOY FEELING LEFT OUT.  HAVING LOST MY DAD AT AN EARLY AGE, I KNOW VERY WELL WHAT NOT HAVING A FATHER CAN FEEL LIKE ALTHOUGH I WAS VERY BLESSED TO HAVE A VERY SPECIAL MOTHER.  SO LET'S IMAGINE FOR A FEW MOMENTS..........IMAGINE HOW MUCH BETTER LIFE CAN BE FOR BOTH FATHERS AND SONS WHEN THEY SHARE LIFE TOGETHER.  AND IMAGINE WHAT THOSE WHO DON'T ARE FEELING.


    AMERICA HAS FAR TOO MANY FAMILIES WITHOUT A FATHER, NOT THROUGH DEATH OR DISASTER, BUT THROUGH SELFISHNESS AND LACK OF RESPONSIBILITY.  IMAGINE IF WE CAN CHANGE THAT: IMAGINE WHAT A BETTER PLACE IT CAN BE.


    SEE YOU TONIGHT AT NINE.

    The Spirit Comes to Charleston

    in Lifestyle

    THE DEADLY SHOOTING DEATHS OF NINE BLACK AMERICANS IN A CHARLESTON, SC CHURCH LAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT LEFT MANY THINKING THAT ANOTHER FULL BLOWN RACIAL RIOT MIGHT VERY WELL ENGULF THIS BEAUTIFUL SOUTHERN TOWN.  AFTER ALL, THE ALLEGED GUNMAN, DYLANN ROOF, WAS DEFINITELY A RACIST FILLED WITH HATE AND HE SHOWED LITTLE EMOTION AS HE GUNNED DOWN CHURCH MEMBERS ATTENDING A BIBLE CLASS WITH THEIR PASTOR, REVEREND CLEMENTA PINCKNEY, WHO WAS ALSO KILLED.


    BUT CHARLESTON SURPRISED THE WORLD AS THE CHRISTIAN SPIRIT OF THE FAMILIES OF THE VICTIMS, OTHER CHURCH GOERS AND THE OVERALL COMMUNITY RESPONDED WITH LOVE RATHER THAN HATE.  AND YESTERDAY, A HUGE CROWD VISITED THE EMANUEL AME CHURCH TO SHOW SOLIDARITY WITH ITS MEMBERS IN THE WAKE OF THE TRAGEDY.


    WHY WERE THINGS SO DIFFERENT IN CHARLESTON THAN THE EVENTS PREVIOUSLY IN FERGUSON AND BALTIMORE?  AND WHAT CAN THIS TEACH US AS WE GO FORWARD IN A NATION THAT HAS SO MUCH HOSTILITY AND HATRED INSTILLED IN SO MANY?


    JOIN NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE TONIGHT AS WE DISCUSS CHARLESTON AND HOW THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES THINGS DIFFERENT.  WE'LL SEE YOU AT 9 EASTERN.

    in Lifestyle

    SEVERAL WEEKS AGO WE HAD MEG NORRIS, A GEORGIA OPT-OUT OF COMMON CORE LEADER AS OUR GUEST TO DISCUSS THE PITFALLS OF COMMON CORE AND THE NEGATIVE IMPACT IT WOULD HAVE ON THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN, MOST PARTICULARLY THE YOUNGSTERS IN GRADES K-3.  TONIGHT (THURSDAY, JUNE 11) NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WELCOMES CINDY HAMILTON, A LEADER IN THE ORLANDO OPT-OUT ORGANIZATION TO PRESENT THE FLORIDA PERSPECTIVE ON THIS PROGRAM.


    CINDY WILL FILL US IN ON WHAT IS HAPPENING PRESENTLY AND PLANNED IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO KEEP EDUCATING FLORIDIANS FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE ON WHY THIS PROGRAM MUST BE STOPPED.  SHE HAS DEDICATED HERSELF TO THE CAUSE OF FURTHERING AN EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR OUR CHILDREN WHICH WILL PREPARE THEM TO BE ALL THEY CAN BE, NOT TO BE PIGEON-HOLED BY A CRONY-CAPITALIST AND GOVERNMENT LINKED POWERHOUSE WHICH THINKS IT KNOWS BETTER THAN PARENTS AND TEACHERS WHAT OUR CHILDREN NEED.

    SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN ON MONDAY NIGHT

    in Lifestyle

    SORRY FOR SO MUCH TROUBLE TRYING TO GET THE SHOW TO RUN TWICE ON SUNDAY BUT HERE IT IS ALIVE AND WELL AT 9PM ET MONDAY NIGHT. I GUESS A DEVOTIONAL IS IN ORDER AT ANY TIME DAY OR NIGHT.


    WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE LAWS OF GOD AND THE LAWS OF MAN AND WHEN EACH IS APPROPRIATE AND WHEN THE LAWS OF GOD TRUMP THOSE OF MAN.  YOU SEE, GOD MADE US IN HIS IMAGE AND HE WANTS US TO LIVE IN A GODLY WAY.  AND SINCE WE ARE ALL SINNERS, THAT BECOMES SOMETIMES DIFFICULT.  BUT WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT AND SEE WHAT HE EXPECTS.


    WHILE MANY OF DIFFERENT CREEDS AND VARIATIONS MAKE UP AMERICA, THERE IS NO DOUBTING THAT SHE WAS FOUNDED UNDER GOD, SO IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO REALIZE THE IMPORTANCE THAT HE PLAYS IN OUR SUCCESS AS A NATION AND WHY WE SOMETIMES FAIL.


    SEE YOU TONIGHT AT 9 ET.

    Miss Priss Authors Judy Phillips and Brenda Nichols join Kori on the Back Porch

    in Books

    MISS PRISS: ON AND OFF THE COURT Book one in the new tween chapter series, by Mom’s Choice Award winning writer-illustrator Team, ‘Brenjudy’, introduces Priscilla Penelope Paxton (Miss Priss), a ten year old whose interests and curiosity land her in, sometimes, sticky situations. A unique coming-of-age story bound to bring giggles and enjoyment to all its readers as Miss Priss encounters and overcomes a slew of challenges, even the one that will continue to grow—self-awareness. The book will be released with full color illustrations. 


    Priscilla Penelope Paxton is a witty ten year old whose interests and curiosity land her in, sometimes, sticky situations. Dance classes, Girl Scouts, school assignments, friends and hanging out at her family's drug store, and the local Piggly Wiggly would leave any other person with no time for anything else. Yet, the thrill of basketball and joining the Little Dribblers finds its way into Miss Priss' heart. Though this interest will prove to be a dream that requires overcoming the greatest of challenges; Mom’s opposition. A task that will require ingenuity, perseverance and a little help from some loved ones.
