    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)

    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 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".

    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.

    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.

    What Happens When the Marines Can't Get There?

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE A WORLD WHERE EVERYONE IS AT PEACE WITH LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP ALL AROUND. OKAY, YOU CAN WAKE UP NOW, FOR UNFORTUNATELY WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE GOOD AND EVIL ARE BOTH PRESENT AND GOOD PEOPLE MUST ALWAYS BE READY TO DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM BOTH INDIVIDUALS AND OTHER NATIONS.


    SEVERAL DAYS AGO AN ARTICLE SURFACED TALKING ABOUT THE MARINES AND THEIR LACK OF TRANSPORTATION.  IT SEEMS THAT THE NAVY HAS BEEN DRAWN DOWN SO DRASTICALLY THAT THE MARINES ARE LOOKING FOR FOREIGN SHIPS TO USE WHEN THEY HAVE TO DEPLOY.  SO AMERICA'S 911 FORCE IS NOW IN A POSITION OF A FIRE COMPANY LACKING A FIRE TRUCK TO FIGHT A FIRE.  WHAT KIND OF DEFENSE ESTABLISHMENT IS THIS?


    SADLY, IT'S NOT LIMITED TO THE NAVY AND MARINES.  THE AIR FORCE IS HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING ENOUGH PILOTS AND THE ARMY HAS BEEN CUT TO MANPOWER LEVELS NOT SEEN SINCE THE 1930S. HMMM! ISN'T THAT INTERESTING.  JUST BEFORE HITLER MADE HIS MOVE AMERICA WAS AT A SERIOUS POINT OF WEAKNESS VERY SIMILAR TO TODAY.  AND YET, WE HAVE THREATS ALL OVER THE WORLD THAT HAVE OUR MILITARY SPREAD SO THIN THAT SUCCESS IS BECOMING DIFFICULT AT BEST.


    WE'LL TALK ABOUT THIS TONIGHT.  AND IT IS VERY IMPORTANT AS A PART OF OUR LIFE BECAUSE WHEN AMERICA PUTS HER GUARD DOWN, THE IMPACT IT HAS ON OUR LIFE AND LIFESTYLE BECOMES CRITICAL IF NOT DOWNRIGHT DEADLY.

    Choosing the Right Dealer Is Important
    The right dealership can enhance your purchase by offering better brands, accessories and service. Look for business longevity, a great reputation in the community and plenty of testimonials.


    All Hot Tub Brands Are Not Created Equal
    Look for household names that you recognize and ask the dealer to explain the differences between brands to you. Taking the time to research manufacturer websites and asking the dealer to help is invaluable advice.


    Ask to Take a Test Soak
