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)
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
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.

Salutations with a side order of crumpets and cornbread to our steadfast listenership! Join Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the "Uncanny" Daryll B., for a new episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse airing this Saturday at 6pm EST. For our latest installment, we welcome writer, editor and co-owner of Verge Entertainment, Joseph Illidge. Mr. Illidge stops by Afronerd Studios to discuss his forthcoming project, The Ren as well as his stellar editorial career at DC Comics and Milestone Media. Additionally, the crew will dissect the following stories: comedic actor, Simon Pegg (Star Trek, Shaun of the Dead) has some choice words regarding geek culture and the infantilization of adult society (what, his geek movie themed checks bounced?); what does the leak of the Supergirl pilot episode 6 months before the official airing mean for the series? ; what are the implications for the season finales of Agents of Shield and The Flash; DC's Convergence vs Marvel's Secret Wars-flipside of the same crossover event?; our impressions of the recent Mad Max reboot. And lastly, actor, Michael B. Jordan states his case for "fear of a Black Human Torch."
And for more serious socio-political fare, there's Afronerd Radio for the second half. Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they discuss the following topics: The Root site gets purchased by Univision; Sean P. Diddy Combs weighs in on the #BlackLivesMatter movement; another police shooting of unarmed Black men-this time occurring in WA ; Bionic contact lens are on the horizon; our thoughts about the upcoming afronerd-centric Dope film.

About this episode: A friend of mine shared a blog post on my facebook a few weeks ago that really pulled me in. It was titled, "This is a Dead Mom Essay," written by Maddie Taterka, a freelance writer and contributing editor to Autostraddle, an intelligent, hilarious & provocative voice and a progressively feminist online community for a new generation of kickass lesbian, bisexual & otherwise inclined ladies (and their friends).
In this article, I learned that Maddie lost her mom to cancer when she was 16 and immediately connected with her story, as I've lost both my parents to cancer and losing my dad when I was 22 really flipped my world upside down. Also, being a queer woman adds a entirely different spin to loss (in my opinion). I was really interested to get to know Maddie and her story a little bit more, so when she said yes to being open to an interview, I was ecstatic!
About this show: I lost both parents to cancer at 22 and 27. Let’s talk about stuff that’s hard, ways you can move forward in your life and how to get back to a happier place. My intention is to connect those of us who have lost our mothers, our fathers or both parents, at any age, through the arts, life experiments, looking inward and turning pain into something positive.
