His efforts have been covered by top news organizations, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and The Wall Street Journal.

Created and founded by Mary Blackmon, Farm Star Living is the first of its kind – a new lifestyle brand celebrating both the lives of real farmers and the farming lifestyle in general so that people everywhere can better understand, appreciate and support farmers and the world of farming.
Mary is a 3rd generation farmer from Arkansas, who left her hometown to pursue college and a career in advertising sales and marketing in Los Angeles, Atlanta and New York City. She worked for publishing houses and internet companies (Wired, Walt Disney Internet Group). In NYC in 2002, she founded Spa-Addicts.com, the first national discount site for the spa & wellness industry. She grew it into a multi-million dollar business and a leader in the industry, and attracted hundreds of thousands of women as well as sponsors.
In 2008, however, she learned most of her family farm bordering Ark / LA would be sold. Not wanting to lose the family heritage and farmland her family before her had so cherished, Mary, along with the support of her brother Douglas, was adamant to preserve and keep the remaining farmland. She then began making changes in her life so that she could move from Los Angeles back South in order to keep, operate and run the farm. She bought back her grandparents house and renovated it, and discovered that “saving the family farm” had changed her life forever – and for the better. Today she admits that she is happier than ever & inspired, loving the farming business and now launching Farm Star Living, which she felt compelled to create for the good of farming and the people she has met along her new path. She hopes that Farm Star Living will provide farmers the respect, acknowledgment and support they so deserve and attract new farmers as well as support the current ones.
Debbie Dahmer will co-host this show.
Tonight is the pilot show for animal advocacy. The inhumane treatment of companion animals, farm animals and wild animals has got to stop. As human beings we are capable of and accountable for, far more than what we are doing. There is nothing human or humane about mistreating an animal and even less in knowing that it happens with such frequency and doing nothing about it.
Animal shelters are over capacity with abandoned and abused animals, many simply dumped in the street and abandoned, others rescued from horrendous neglect and abuse at the hands of their owners. What kind of person does this to a vulnerable animal?
There are numerous groups and organizations devoted to protecting and saving these tortured creatures. We will be discussing these groups, including online petitions and other activities aimed at rescue, protection and adoption services.
Please join us as we open the dialogue on the miserable state of affairs regarding all of our injured and abondoned animals. We are their caretakers and protectors. We need to do more!
This show will be co-hosted by Dahmer
Every year, millions of abused and abandoned animals are gassed to death, or chemically killed. As usual, instead of going after the CAUSE of these claimed overpopulated animals, we instead kill off large numbers of them. We react instead of being pro-active.
While it is true that pet owners need to have their pets spayed and nuetered, this process is so cost prohibitive in many cases that owners simply cannot afford to have it done.
The average cost of spaying and nuetering across the country is 85.00 to 150 dollars. The cost of euthanizing these same animals is as much or more. Wouldn't it make better economic sense to offer low cost spay and nueter, and avoid the costly euthanizing?
Every year organizations claiming to exist to protect animals from abuse, neglect and possbile euthansia, collect millions upon millions of dollars in donations. Instead of funding kill shelters, would we not be better served to fund free or reduced cost spay and nueter clinics? This would reduce unwanted populations of animals that eventually are held in shelters waiting to die. I know the animals would appreciate it.
Join us as we discuss our unsavory acceptance gas chambers and other methods of killing off unwanted animals.
