In this very upbeat mid-summer impromptu show, I will begin by discussing the Royal British Family's William, Kate and their newest member, George.
But then will swiftly move on to discuss exactly WHAT glamorous woman of the East-- tributes by way of symphonies and books written specifically about her Ancient Identity--was JK Rowling in her very exotic Past Life. Her unusual experience back then provided the basis for her for her remarkable writing talent today, the most famous of her stories being the long involved series for children, HARRY POTTER.
Join host Donna Wright on the couch talking to authors JK Ensley, PJ Sharon and Leanne Tyler about their new releases. Mallory Kane will bring us the latest in Romance News sponsored by Dark Hollows Press. All of this and more this week on Hummingbird Place -- Your Home for Romance.

Join Roxie and Carrie for a special interview with talented paranormal professional and artist Jessica Stone.
Jessica says..."The paranormal fascinates me. It always has and I think it always will. From ghosts, to aliens, to cryptozoology it all has me hooked. For me I think it's the mystery that's been presented by these things, all of the unending questions that follow, with no clear answers. But the answers are what we've all been looking for right? Personally, part of me that I often tell to shut up, doesn't want the answers to ever be found. Once it's all out in the open the world will lose some of the magic it has left. I know there's something to all the stories, to the feel that shivers down your spine, the absolute certainty that something is there but you don't see anyone, and to the glimpses of movement you catch out of the corner of your eye. It's in these moments that believers are made because it's not always about seeing; sometimes the greatest evidence is what you feel."

J K Rolling is the author of the Harry Potter series of books. Interesting that she's a BILLIONAIRE still gets nervous in front of people. In her talk she says:
There are benefits of failure. Imagination is very important in life. Her parents hoped she would get a "real job." J. K. Rolling pushed to live her dream. The moment you are old enough to take the wheel the responsibility is up to you. Poverty enails fear, struggle and depression. It means a thousand petty humiliations and hardships. Climbing out of poverty is difficult.
What she feared most was failure. Talent and intellegence is not always enough. In her twenties she was almost homeless and broke. She thought she was a huge failure. She had no idea how long she was going to be broke.
Failure is stripping away of what's not important. She began to direct all her energy to what she was meant to do...write books. She had a big idea. "Rock bottom was the solid foundation on which I built my life."
J. K. Rolling invested every waking hour developing her skills. She says," The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are, ever after, secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships, until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift, for all that it is painfully won, and it has been worth more than any qualification I ever earned."
Truly, a lady who didn't give up. Here is the text of her speech:
Anyone who has achieved anything great, anyone who has CHANGED THE WORLD has at some point made a choice to learn from failure and move forward. If you look at the most inspirational innovators, athletes, celebrities, geniuses, and icons throughout history, they all shared the belief that the failure was merely a stepping stone to the success they seriously sought.
Failure is feedback. It points out what is not working so you can go on to discover what will work. "Turn that lemon into lemonade and enjoy the journey," says Coach Joyce Barrie.
On June 15, we talked about very famous successful people who failed at first. This list included Oprah, Michael Jordan, Norman Vincent Peale, Abraham Lincoln, Beethoven, Thomas Edison. Walt Disney, Winston Churchill, Steven Spielberg, Albert Einstein and others. http://tobtr.com/s/7698719
Today, we will include many other very famous failures who did not give up until they failed their way to great success. We will include such extraordinary notables as J. K. Rowling, Stephen King, Fred Astaire, Socrates, Sidney Portier, Lucille Ball, Elvis and the Beatles.
Be sure to listen to both shows on Famous Failures to be inspired and motivated to keep on going, no matter what!
This week we will be discussing the success of novelist J.K. Rowling, as the author of the world renowned Harry Potter series. The show will focus on her rise as an author, the struggles of being published, and the awards and recongnition she has had in her career.

The idea is to be fresh but why. Its the courte. Lets get into it
Stranded Whale In Atlantic City, New Jersey Gets Graffitied
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A dead Minke whale that washed ashore in New Jersey suffered some further indignity: someone tagged it with graffiti.
The whale, which was roughly 12 to 15 feet long, was discovered Thursday morning below Atlantic City's Central Pier.
Police tell The Press of Atlantic City the purple markings are not gang-related and appear to be Greek letters.
The letters appeared to be Tau Epsilon Phi, a fraternity that has chapters at several area schools, followed by what looked like "94."
Spokesman Jesse Cohen says while it has not been confirmed that Tau Epsilon Phi members were involved, the fraternity considers it a "reprehensible act" contrary to its teachings and is cooperating with authorities.
A state pathologist will try to determine the cause of death.
