I love Vivaldi...The Four Seasons...Winter, the 2nd-3rd acts of our lives...hmmm, I see winter as the springtime of my life, climbing higher on the path of life which has no end only new beginnings, new opportunities, new portals and vistas to enter to explore and that's what a group of retired Professional Actors have embraced, their fire-in-the-belly desire to stay involved during their so-called "retirement."

South Africa's hospitals are in crisis, and will be at risk of collapse if doctors flee their shocking working conditions, a report said on Sunday.
South Africa’s state hospitals are in crisis, and will be at risk of collapse if hundreds of unpaid and demoralized doctors flee their shocking working conditions and pay, the Sunday Times reported.
While doctors and health experts blame the shambles on health mismanagement, Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi said: “I would not use the word crisis; I would say very serious challenges.”
The state of the country’s public health system was revealed this week by doctors who are at loggerheads with the government over their paltry pay. Doctors were preparing to take to the streets on Friday and to also down tools in next month’s Confederation Cup soccer showpiece.
Doctors were working up to 36-hour shifts without pay, operating theatres and trauma units were summarily shut down because of a lack of basic supplies and patients were routinely turned away because of a lack of ventilators, beds and medicine.
The situation would deteriorate further if 10% to 15% of junior and mid-level doctors carry out their threat to quit unless their pay improves.
South Africa has just more than 18 000 doctors in the public sector, which means one doctor to every 3 800 citizens without medical aid.
The World Health Organization recommended an average ratio of eight doctors to every 10 000 people—about three times more doctors than South Africa currently has.
ALPHONSE WAS THE LEAD SINGER OF THE MIRACLES. AND LOOK AND SOUNDS JUST LIKE SMOKEY ROBINSON.This marvelous gift he has been given is now a gift to all.

Tonight we welcome Chuck Bailey, Alabama president of Fair Tax, to discuss Unfair, The Movie, due in theatres October 14th. “Unfair”, a ninety minute documentary motion picture intended for all audiences. It will be the first major theatrical documentary to shed light on the certain damage the Income Tax and the IRS have wrought on our liberties, our businesses, our families, and our religious, charitable and civic organizations, while empowering a political agenda contrary to America’s heritage.
This show is about sovereignty. Sovereignty in the home, in our local communities, and in our States as well as our Nation. CommonCore, CSCOPE, ObamaCare, the EPA, BLM, and a plethora of other schemes and government agencies are trying hard to take away our rights and freedoms.
Join Jennifer Montrose (AL), Dan Wilson (FL), and Scott Osborn (TX) as we discuss the latest happenings and open up a free speech dialogue around the nation. We welcome you to call in and join the discussion!
Tonight's guest is Ralph Ring of: BlueStarEnterprise.com
“Ralph Ring is a brilliant innovative technician who as a young man in the late 1950s and early 1960s worked closely with Otis T. Carr. With the aid of his small team, Carr, who was himself a protegé of the great inventor Nikola Tesla, built a number of flying disks which worked… prior to their experimentation being forcibly terminated by government agents.” —from Project Camelot
ST. LOUIS COUNTY - A local theater franchise has canceled plans to show a new documentary about race in St. Louis County. According to Riverfront Times, Wehrenberg Theaters has decided not show the film "Spanish Lake" at local theaters when it's released this year. The film chronicles the decline of the North St. Louis County town, "Spanish Lake," situated just 8 miles from Ferguson, MO. Ferguson is the city currently experiencing daily protest since August 9, 2014 when Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18 year old Michael Brown. Many believe the decline of both Ferguson and "Spanish Lake" are due to redlining by the county government.
The film's Facebook page posted the following statement:
SPANISH LAKE was planned to come back to St. Louis theaters on September 5th. However, Wehrenberg Theatres has decided to cancel the screenings due to the recent developments in Ferguson. We respect their decision and are sensitive to the tensions in the area, but we are disappointed because we believe the message of the film is more important than ever before.
