If your first thought was that we lived on our savings, think again. Here are some bullet points of what route we chose to go when we were faced with no income for a full year:
We did not have a savings to live from
We did not go on a government assistance program
We did not move in with family to avoid mortgage or rent
We did not split up our family to handle the situation.
Some of the things we did do were:
Live off the garden.
Waste NO food.
Barter food items.
Sell off most of our belongings.
Downsize to one car.
Cut out most entertainment.
You'll have to listen to the show to hear how we did this...
Have fun and enJOY the journey!

After a heartbreaking NFC Championship loss, the Green Bay Packers were one of the favorites to play in Super Bowl 50. They resigned Randall Cobb, returned all offensive starters, including reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers. On draft day, they added another weapon, Ty Montgomery from Stanford. Before camp, Montgomery was nothing more than a rookie on the depth chart. The wide receiver unit was solid, with Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and DeVante Adams rounding out the top three. There were talks of Mike McCarthy possibly keeping six wide receivers, on the roster.
Jared Abbrederis was the first victim of injury, in the wide receiver unit, suffering a concussion. Then Jordy Nelson tore his ACL, and now Randall Cobb injured his shoulder. Nelson is out for the year, and Cobb's return is unknown. He suffered a minor AC joint sprain. Bigger injuries loom as Bryan Bulaga sprained his ankle, and has had a history of injuries. Micah Hyde left the game with a neck injury.

Guatemala needs profound change- Months of protests have coalesced into unified outrage against Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina after the nation’s top prosecutors disclosed evidence that he was embroiled in a graft scandal. A national strike on Aug. 27 has shuttered schools and businesses and brought tens of thousands to the street, with many on SOCIAL MEDIAproclaiming, “I have no president.” This is a fragile moment for a nation that has never reckoned with the bloody legacy of its internal conflict, from 1960 to 1996, which saw the deaths of more than 200,000 Guatemalans, mostly indigenous Mayans. Guatemala has yet to dismantle the inequality, poverty and racism that gave rise to that conflict. The U.S.-backed elites who used state-sponsored terrorism to crush the 36-year insurgency still wield power

Johnny Strozier Keeping it Real, a reentry radio broadcast, Aug. 31, 2015, 9pmEST until 11pmEST. Call-in number 347.857.3293. Johnny Strozier was paroled in 2013 after having been incarcerated for 46 years in the Georgia prison system. This show documents Strozier's reentry as he helps others who are also exiting prisons and jails. Strozier counsels youths to help ensure that they never become inmates, and he has gathered numerous concerned people from churches and human rights advocacy groups to help give information and practical assistance to released inmates in the Metro-Atlanta area. Strozier says, "If a man with think right, he will act right; and if he acts right, things will go right in his life." This philosophy is sound in most cases.
Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has, and it never will.

We're less than a week away from the start of the 2015 College Football season. Every team in play is hoping to have a shot at a division, conference or national championship. The players have their own goals as well, and for some of them, that involves picking up some fancy trophies in December. College football has more than a dozen national awards that are doled out based on individual performance throughout the season, most notably the Heisman Trophy. Last year saw two players (Oregon's Marcus Mariota and Arizona's Scooby Wright) claim eight total trophies. We’re going to go ahead and take a stab at picking those winners now, and maybe we'll get a few right. Join @Lock_tha_Great , @JaiHov and the producer of the show @Howeezy26 as they discuss the hottest sports news of the past week and analyze college football's biggest postseason awards, predictions for conference winners and pick the Final Four for this year’s College Football Playoff.
On today's show, we're talking the wideout position. This is by far the deepest position in fantasy football. How do you draft? Can you wait on a receiver if you don't get one of the top 10 picks? What are some sleepers? Who are high risk players based on their QB situation? Who steps in for Jordy Nelson? Do you draft anyone from the Panthers? How long do you wait to draft a receiver? What do we expect from Odell Beckham Jr. this year? Plus draft strategies!
