Beatrice Melba Hill (born October 29, 1945), best known by her stage name, Melba Moore is an American singer, actress, entertainer. She is the daughter of saxophonist Teddy Hill and R&B singer Bonnie Davis.
Melba Moore was born in 1945 in New York City, New York, to Gertrude Melba Smith (known professionally as Bonnie Davis) and Teddy Hill, and raised in Harlem, New York, until she was 9 and her divorced mother remarried jazz pianist Clement Leroy Moorman. She attended Newark Arts High School in Newark, New Jersey.Her mother, Bonnie Davis, had a No. 1 R&B hit with "Don't Stop Now", prior to Melba's birth. Although her biological father was Big Band leader and saxophonist Teddy Hill, it was her stepfather Moorman (who played on "Don't Stop Now") who became a prime influence and encouragement in Moore's musical pursuits, insisting that she learn to play the piano. When she graduated from college she worked as a music teacher, but she soon decided to pursue the spotlight. She chose her stage name by shortening her stepfather's surname from Moorman and using her middle name, "Melba".
Moore began her performing career in 1967 as Dionne in the original cast of the musical Hair along with Ronnie Dyson and Diane Keaton. Moore replaced Keaton in the role of Sheila. In 1970, she won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for her portrayal of Lutiebelle in Purlie. She would not return to Broadway until 1978 when she appeared (as Marsinah) with Eartha Kitt in Timbuktu! but left the show after a few weeks and was replaced by Vanessa Shaw. Following the success of Purlie, Moore landed two big-screen film roles, released two successful albums, 1970's I Got Love and Look What You're Doing to the Man, and co-starred with actor Clifton Davis in the then-couple's own successful variety television series in 1972.
Our stepmother saga continues as we study chapters 4++. Yes, it's time to talk about the kids and our homes. What's the story with our houses anyway? We probably did not think about our housing when we remarried, but it becomes an issue. Where are the boundaries? Do we have any space to call our own? Got to read the book and join class to find out!

Charles S. Price was born in England in 1887. His mother died when he was two and his father later remarried a woman that Charles loved and respected. He attended college at Wesley College, in Oxford England. He immigrated to Canada in search of work with a law firm, but could not find work and ended up on a railroad crew. In frustration he went to Spokane, Washington hoping to find work there. He went to a church service at a Free Methodist Mission and was converted. He decided to stay with the mission as a worker and was eventually ordained a Methodist minister. Dr. Price came under the influence of "modernistic" or liberal theology. The teachings included the lack of belief in the bible as the Word of God, and a repudiation of the miraculous. He left the Methodist church and became Congregationalist pastor. Later he would describe this period of his life as one who was 'spiritually blind, leading his people into a ditch'. He pastored this way for twelve years.
Dr. Price had the privilege of ministering under the unction and anointing of the Holy Spirit in a ministry unparalleled in these days of "signs following," where the lame walked, the blind received sight, and cripples were made whole. His God-given ministry of faith -- the faith of Jesus Christ -- continued until three days before his departure to be with his Lord on March 8, 1947.
Dr. Price was known for his simple, gospel preaching that exalted Christ. He was also known for his word pictures, in which, under God, he was able to paint the tenderness and love of his Master with such clarity that those who sat under his ministry were brought into personal contact with their Lord. Although Dr. Price has gone on to be with the Lord, his message continues to be taught through the pages of his magazine, "Golden Grain."

I heard this talk years ago and want to share it with you today.
Born in beautiful Brooklyn, New York, in 1927, a bouncing baby boy named Bobby Farrell was introduced to the world. His grandfather, Patrick Farrell, owned a successful auto parts company and life was good in "the old neighborhood." When the stock market crashed in 1929, it took its toll on the business and the family. Bob Farrell's father took his own life when Bob was only four years old. His mother couldn't cope and placed him and his sister in an orphanage. It was a safe place run by loving people. "I remember crying when I arrived and crying when I left," Bob would later recall, "I'm sure I gave those poor people a harder time than they gave me." His mother remarried five years later and got her children back.
In 1973, Bob Farrell sold his fifty-five store chain of ice cream parlors to the Marriot Corporation. He remained as its spokesperson and they added nearly a hundred more stores. It was during this time that he developed a speech for new employees called, "Give 'em the Pickle!", based on a letter he received from a disappointed customer. This speech began the third chapter of his career as a highly sought-after motivational speaker and author.

When my ex announced she was going to get remarried, I decided to post something about it on Facebook. No, this isn’t a story of a poorly considered FB post gone sour.
You can read the entire post in the following pages, but in essence what I said was:
I am so happy for her. She’s an amazing woman. I wish them both the very best for the future.
The comments, both online and offline, came pouring in. Some thought it was a joke. Some thought I was being sarcastic.
I was interested in the response but I was also saddened. It is clear that so many people see their divorces as disasters and their exes as the devil. It doesn’t have to be that way.
My own divorce allowed both my ex and me to face the future unburdened by anger, resentment, bitterness, and even huge attorney fees. My approach allowed us to move into the future with the possibility of being the best versions of ourselves. This experience prompted me to write the book about the “selfish” divorce. The selfish divorce isn’t what you think. It could easily be called the “selfless” divorce, because in the end, being selfless is adaptive and will lead to the best outcomes possible for you, your ex, and your children.
That said, here’s what to expect from The Selfish Divorce Radio:
At times i’ll tell you my life story, especially as it relates to relationships and marriage. Some of these lessons have to do with relationships and some don’t. But they’re all things I’ve learned and if possible, I’d like to help prevent you from taking any of the “classes” I did.
We will also cover the tatical steps I took and continue to take each to to create a better life.
Dr. Tim Weldon looks at the decline of religious cults in America--and whether that is a sign that faith in general is in decline; Tim also talks about the resignation of Bishop Kieran Conry in the U.K--and why his personal failings aren't reason to rewrite Catholic doctrine; Sean looks at the Synod on the Family in Rome, and the question of whether to admit divorced and remarried Catholics to Communion.
Today on Ask the Pastor, Pastor Gregory Dickow addresses your everyday challenges.
Will you please explain the difference between a disciple and a believer as discussed in John chapter 17
Will you please pray for my healing?
My wife passed away at the beginning of the year. I believe I have found my new wife, but my teenage children aren’t ready for me to have a new relationship. Is it too soon to get remarried?
From Banker to work for dad's import-export business on Long Island in the lawn & garden and hardware industry for about a year or so and then became the National Sales Manager for a British company just getting started in the North American market that was in the DIY hardware industry. Did that for about 4 years and then attempted to help a German horticultural company get established in the US market with a peat bog they started in New Brunswick, Canada. Did that for a couple of years and then decided to become a manufacturer's rep in the same industries. Built a rep organization, one of the first to sell and service The Home Depots and other big box stores covering Maine down to Virginia. By the time i left in 1999, we had 100 service reps on the road covering all the Home Depots from Maine to Virginia with just over 40 different product lines in each store. Burnt out, got a divorce and decided to change careers. Joined Weichert Realtors for a few years originally to be a sales agent, but quickly became the go to for designing the presentations for the agents to get customers, both for sale and to purchase. Left that to buy Creative Desktop in Brookfield, CT; a graphic design company and worked that up to about 4 years ago, changing the name to Creative Group LLC and converting it into a music promotion business. As a self taught graphic designer and picking up a keyboard in 1999 to start to write and compose my own music, found my true passion was music. Never looked back. Actually wrote my vows into a song when i remarried in 2006 which was our first dance. Decided to pay it forward and fill a void in the music industry that was missing in supporting the independent music artists and started TBAIMS in January of 2013 holding the first seven monthly showcases at the Gibson Guitar Studios on the West Side of Midtown Manhattan. Have since moved it to Toshi's Living Room.
