    "Looking at Benjamin Franklin & Abraham Maslow" #562

    in Spirituality

    The adding of virtuous habits and the elimination of, well, not so good habits, has been, is now and will continue to be a hot topic for many people.  The adoption of virutes moves us toward eliminating "The Integrity Ga" that exists for most of us.  


    Moving through the literature on this topic yields some very interesting strategies given by some very credible authors.  I have no intention of even attempting to discreit the two authors I will discuss namely, Benamin Franklin and Abraham Maslow for I met (the writings of) these two men at two different times of need.  Each man took me to a higher place for which I was very grateful.  Their writings and strategies, however, left me with questions and a lack of fultillment; I knew there was something better; something more.  


    My invitation to you is to join me in this message; it's my journey and the journey of many others.  Perhaps this will save you some time in your path to a more contented, fulfilled life.  The journey isn't supposed to be hard; in fact, it's a joyous one.  Let's look at Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Maslow to get some direction.

    REELTalk: Allen West on Obama's Iran & Political Analysis, Kathleen Willey

    in Politics Conservative

    Joining Audrey for this week's REELTalk - The Iran deal…it still stinks. The more we find out, the more foul it becomes…revealing how incredibly inept this administration is in keeping America safe. And, Obama’s relentless task of dissing our Military continues…but this one takes the cake…because it involves his protection of a foreign child rapist who likes to beat women, against Green Beret who tried to protect the victims. We'll cover that and more with ALLEN WEST! Plus, America is fed up with our politicians…and some families have the King George Syndrome…and they keep running for the throne…one of those clans is  the Clintons. The Clintons have been a bane upon this nation since they left Arkansas. And now another one wants to haunt the White House again. We'll cover that with a lady who knows the Clinton Machine personally, KATHLEEN WILLEY!!! In the words of Benjamin Franklin, "If we do not hang together, we shall surely hang separately." Come hang with us...

    NFC South ~ NFL Preview; will division winner eclipse the .500 mark this year?

    in Sports

    The NFC South was created, in 2002.  The only team, from the division, who has not went to the Super Bowl are the Atlanta Falcons. No team had won back to back division titles, until last year.  The Carolina Panthers defended their NFC South title.  However, there was much debate about them hosting a wild card game, because of their 7-8-1 record.  Will this years division champion eclipse the .500 mark?


    Can the Carolina Panthers make it three division titles, in a row?  The Panthers did not make any major moves in free agency.  They picked up a few role players, and the only real loss was DeAngelo Williams.  However, he has had a history of nagging injuries, and signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.  The biggest news before the season is the lose of Kelvin Benjamin. He tore his ACL during practice.  This could be a big blow offensively.  Defensively, they have a kid named Luke Kuechly, who is one of the best tacklers, in the NFL.  They have a good front seven, and added depth by drafting linebacker Shaq Thompson.  The secondary could be a question mark, but with a good pass rush, you can take pressure of average cornerbacks.


    After failing to make the Super Bowl, and then having a disappointing 2014, Mike Smith was fired as the Atlanta Falcons coach.    The Atlanta defense can only go one direction, and that is up.  After finishing dead last in yards allowed per game, they signed a handful of defensive players, and then added more with their first two picks.  Vic Beasley and Jalen Collins could be inserted into the starting lineup sooner than later. Offensively, Matt Ryan has Julio Jones and Roddy White to toss the ball to.  DeVonta Freeman will get his chance at running back.


    Jameis Winston was the first overall pick, by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Lovie Smith will need to turn this team around to keep his job, after a disappointing 2-14 season.
