      Sparks fly…
    When they meet, Stephanie thinks Doyle rude, crude, and bossy and while he loves her long legs, he thinks she seems snobbish and cold. However, he feels she has interesting possibilities and she thinks he is a sexy hunk.

      Danger unites…
    Surviving the arsonist set rangeland fire together ignites the passions each has been ignoring. The rugged high desert and mountains of Colorado set the scene for adventure, danger and fiery passions. Can they stay ahead of the arsonist and develop a solid relationship in the bright light of day?

    Growing trust in the face of adversity, just how strong is this new relationship. Can each of them get beyond past betrayals and pain? Will the final chapter be a wedding, or a fond farewell?

      Riverview is home to Stephanie and now to Doyle. The small Colorado town and its citizens reflect small ranch towns across the United States. The values and closeness of the residents who support each other when times are tough.

    Cliffunya & Kisha share their opinions about today's topic at the Kitchen Table Talk.

    The sisters will discuss the different ways problems are handled. Why do some people grow and thrive while others given in to OH ME OH MY.

    Is the glass half full or half empty?

    When you see the glass as half full are you just being an optimist?

    Dr. Peter Gray, why kids learn better through play

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. 

    *Best of replay - for just another week or so until we relaunch under a cool new name.

    TONIGHT! Developmental psychologist Dr. Peter Gray will explain why our current educational system is actually counterproductive to educating kids. Our way of schooling kids ignores our evolved psychology and how children actually learn, and removes children’s natural joy of learning from them in the process. 

    It turns out that schooling based on the principles of a democracy -- applied to children -- is highly effective schooling for keeping kids engaged, helping them develop self-control, and helping them develop to their fullest and become highly productive adults living meaningful lives.

    Peter’s fascinating book: Free to Learn: Why Unleashing the Instinct to Play Will Make Our Children Happier, More Self-Reliant, and Better Students for Life. 

    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday from 7-8 pm Pacific and 10-11 pm Eastern, here at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

    Buy my book, "Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck" at Amazon, and look for my award-winning, nationally syndicated, science-based advice column in a paper near you, or ask the editor to carry it!

    Dr. Sam Sommers, understand the science of context & live, love, & work smarter

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. 

    Context is everything, Tufts psychology professor Dr. Sam Sommers explains. What we believe, how we behave, and even how we see ourselves shifts more than we understand, depending on the situation we find ourselves in at a particular moment.

    For example, contrary to popular belief, context (like whether we're standing in a crowd), and not moral character, will often determine whether people will reach out and help someone in need.

    On tonight's show, Dr. Sommers will lay out how understsanding the surprisingly powerful impact of context can help us combat our biases in seeing and decision-making -- in turn helping us be more effective at work, with our families, in our friendships and relationships, and out in the world.

    Sam's book: Situations Matter: Understanding How Context Transforms Your World

    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

    The Ruckus Room - March of the Wooden Soldiers with Nicholas Rivera

    in Elections

    Last week we invited all five candidates running in the first ward to come on and share with the residents and voters of the first! Mike Jackson was the only one to show up, Manny had a school board meeting (understandable), Veronica does not want to share the floor with any other candidate ( f$ck them , her words ). Bernard will not participate in anything that I am involved in. -Kevin ( I will not associate with two-faced people ) Alveria did not respond one way or the other. This show is an opportunity for the First Ward constituents to hear what the candidates see, plan and hope to bring to reality in the ward, by not participating they are only reinforcing any individual doubts people may have in them. I will say this, personal attitudes are not productive in politics. Get over yourselves and get with the program, the First Ward residents are waiting.

    *As yet released*


      It’s 1920. The city of Shanghai has been invaded by the drug trade. The drug trafficking and usage of opium have taken the city by storm. While the looks of the city seem calm, deep within there is a secret and nobody realizes that the small hidden drug world is about to get bigger..much bigger. The underground world that was once hush- hush is now slowly making it’s way to the surface to corrupt the public. However only a few are aware of it, for the rest it shall cause an uproar making some frantic and some in awe. Soon the drug is seen all around the city and it seems that getting one’s hands on it has become a problem so much so that it causes an all out epidemic. One that no one will see coming or seemingly be able to stop..

      One of the few people aware of all this is Ryu Tsang, a local dock worker who grew up admiring the city for all it’s glamour. When strange things start happening Ryu takes notice. While at first he brushes off the first few encounters he can’t help but shake the fact that something bigger is unfolding. Shin Shaojin believes the city will be better off embracing such change. He has a vision of Shanghai’s future. One that involves his business to bloom and offer endless possibilities to all that are accepting. Will the city overcome the dark cloud that is the drug trade or will it be taken in and become the change that Shin Shaojin believes it can be?

      Captain Jacob Billet
      Journal Entry - Sunday April 5, 2026

      It’s raining, it’s pouring, the undead are roaring…

       Amassed at the UCRA east end enclosure, the dead strain the fence line while soldiers keep watchful eyes, the survivors on the opposite side of the rising river about to lose their minds.

       It’s a crazy time: nonstop precipitation; everyone's up in arms; paranoid city council members with an asshat City Treasurer. Water, water everywhere. Zees dropping into the churning drink. Troops afraid of being stitched up and thrown back into the fray as Zombie Troopers. Tank commanders getting itchy to head out on their own after drug-laden shamblers. Reganshire insurgents trying to extract our west side civvies for some unknown reason, possibly pushing the city into taking heavy-handed action against them.

       Then there’s some black-haired dead dude staring at me through the fence, grinning like he’s off his meds.

      And I thought Lettner was a headache.

      All this sh*t might give me a heart attack.
