    The Business and Recycling of Christmas trees in Africa

    in Environment

     
    Christmas (Christian Mass) is an increasingly popular annual religious tradition of the nativity, which is the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ and his legacy of joy of enlightenment, peace on earth, freedom, civility, and unity of all mankind. This custom is celebrated with exchange of gifts, sharing of stories and musical cantata, as well as displays and decorations such asChristmas trees.
    Christmas has become the largest annual economic stimulus for many nations around the world. Sales increase dramatically in almost all retail areas and shops introduce new products as people purchase gifts, decorations, and supplies. There are approximately 400 million Christians in Africa who celebrate the Christmas tradition. Although plastic trees and inflatable Santa Claus were popular in Africa, new wealth effect, new level of sophistication, explosion of Christian growth and the influx of foreigners are creating a boom in Christmas tree sales.
    Few years ago, Burundi's government banned cutting down of trees to be used for Christmas festivities. The country claimed it had lost enough of its forest cover and could not afford any more trees to be cut down. Join us as we explore the pros and cons in the business and recycling of Christmas trees in Africa.

    Wolves, Pit Bulls & Tahyos

    in Pets

    So this is the first episode of what I hope will turn into an ongong "discussion". I created this interactive show for all of you to be able to join in and share the love I have for dogs of all sorts and how much they have affected my life.  This forum is for anyone who may want dog training advice, human training advice (hahaha) and questions, comments and concerns for just about anything to do with this insanity that I now live in.  These will be LIVE, 1 hour shows, every Saturday night. You can call in and talk to me personally and we will even have guests from time to time.  But be forewarned....this is the raw and uncensored version of Tia Torres.....so if you can't deal with an occasional "F" bomb or find it religiously offensive if I use "Xmas" as opposed to "Christmas"....probably not the place for you to hang out. 


    Just remember....life's too short....so bite hard!

    in Military

    Renee has served her country in the U.S. Army and is a Persian Gulf War Veteran. Her wartime experience led her to a place of darkness and depression. She often says that she was, "Walking around dead and depressed for years and didn't know it." 

    God has allowed Renee to undergo various trials and tribulations to demonstrate to her that He is a God that heals, delivers, redeems and sets free. By being placed on the “Potter’s Wheel,” God continues to mold Renee into a vessel that brings Him glory and honor through her life and ministry.

    Renee is Certified Spirit-led Christian HIScoach™, Inspirational Speaker-Teacher, Writer, Makeup Artist, and licensed Cosmetologist. Yielding to the process and bringing together her passion and experience in Makeup Artistry, as well as her love for encouraging and teaching women to live a life of peace, has enabled Renee to birth Combat Boots to Makeup Brushes™. 

    As Founder and CEO of Combat Boots to Makeup Brushes™, Renee has a burning desire to help women veterans, who have experienced trauma, live a life of peace and balance. She believes that by being a personal cheerleader and equipping them with a Christ-centered plan on overcoming emotional scares, these women can exchange their ashes for beauty.

    Not only is she the CEO of Combat Boots to Makeup Brushes™, Renee is married to Brannon Doughty. They have a wonderful blended family of 7 beautiful children, (4 boys and 3 girls). They range from the ages of 2-19 years.


    “To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified”(Isaiah 61:3 NKJV)

    Dolores Manzanares

    in History

    Today my guest is Dolores Manzanares, who  will share her experiences working with bands in California 


    Dolores Manzanare's Bio


     


    1951 - 1960: Began singing in church choir, school chorus in grade school, middle school and high school.


    1960 - 1965 Joined a band and we played mostly Rock and Oldies But Goodies (5 years)


    1965 - 1975 Took a break and raised a family.


    1975 - 1990 Returned to college, took singing classes, and formed a band of my own, "The 2002 Band." I studied to become an educator and worked on week-ends with my band. I was the lead singer and we played throughout Southern California for various groups and organizations, fund-raisers, weddings, anniversaries, birthday parties, hospital Christmas parties, New Year's Parties, and played for the Arthur Murray Dance Studios.


    We played all genres of music from Oldies to Swing, ballads, latin music, polkas, tangos, waltzes, fox trot, rock and disco.


    I was able to juggle raising my two boys, attending college, graduated in 1981 with my Bachelor's and a Teaching Credential in Bilingual Education, then, my Master's Degree, also in Bilingual Education in 1988. I continued to perform with my band until 1990, at which time, I felt I needed to just focus on my teaching career. I totaled 20 years as a vocalist and musical percussionist. I thoroughly enjoyed entertaining groups and organizations throughout Southern California.


    I must say that Teaching and a Musical Career were two very rewarding careers for me. I was able to sing on television, radio, and record at a recording studio, at age 21. Those were exciting times for me.
