SORT BY Relevancy
As this Thursday is Thanksgiving Day, we will share a few of our favorite segments from past shows. This show is pre-recorded, so we will not be available to take callers.
From Jeff and Howard at The Lone Writer, and everyone at Vigilante Publishing Group LLC,
Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving Day
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.
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)
Jenn Thor is a wife and mother of two teenagers. While her family keeps her busy and vastly entertained, she has the remarkable opportunity to spend her days working toward becoming a published romance author. Jenn is a member of Romance Writers of America and Romance Authors of the Heartland based in Omaha, Nebraska. She spends her Monday nights with her critique group.
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".
TONIGHT NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL BEGIN A SERIES OF SHORT DISCOURSES (NO MORE THAT 15 MINUTES) FOR USE ON DAYS WHEN A REGULAR SHOW IS NOT PROGRAMMED. SHORT AND SWEET: THE THEME WILL BE IMAGINE.......THE REMAINDER TO BE FILLED IN NIGHTLY
IMAGINE IF WE TOOK CHARGE OF OUR OWN LIVES AND TOOK OWNERSHIP OF OUR COUNTRY. IMAGINE THE POWER IT WOULD GIVE US AND HOW IT COULD MAKE THE POLITICIANS TAKE NOTICE. JUST IMAGINE, THEN APPLY THE WILLPOWER. AND IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER, GOD WILL HELP. JUST IMAGINE. SEE YOU TONIGHT AT NINE (ET).
YOUR CLUE TO THE EXACT TOPIC IS IN THE PICTURE
Moonstar48 asks: How do you go about encouraging a young writer to write? I try and support my daughter as a writer but sometimes I feel like I should do more. Then I feel like I am pushing her to write when she might not want to. What is the line that I shouldn’t cross while giving the most support. 1 thing I know not to do is I have asked to see or read any of her writing without her permission. I wait and let her ask me to read something.

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.
