SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 3 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, author of the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 3: "Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him." You've worked Steps 1 and 2 with a safe and trusted person. You've surrendered and have demonstrated your willingness to try a new approach to your life experiences. When you admit your powerlessness over your traumatic history, you learn a comforting and critical truth: that you experienced certain painful life events that you absolutely could not have controlled. You weren't always in control of the coping patterns that have emerged. For some survivors, this can be a frightening and humbling experience. (More will be revealed through the 4th and 5th Steps). ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 4. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As we launch the first episode of Steve & Dan, Dan shares his latest experience in the American healthcare system, learning that a visit to the doctor now is but a small earthly preview of what people might expect as they begin their eternity in Hell. Steve, as expected, offers no intellectually valuable additions to the conversation, as he leads the audience into raucus laughter at Dan's pain. We offer this to our audience in the comforting knowledge that, as we all know, "laughter is the best medicine".
Join us for our launch and each week as we laugh at ourselves, others and life in general and as we wrestle with life's most disturbing question, "why would the least talented partner get first billing?" Read Dan's crazy blog daily at TheDefiantJester.com and, if you are so moved, enjoy one of his books available there! Visit Steve also, at...wait...forget it! Just forget it!

My buddy Bob Mc Glew suggested a story line that was visit a ghost town and to do a short story about what you find there. So has we were traveling to Austin Texas on December 24 we stopped in Kent Texas just to see what was there and do a share some reflections . There is not much there but I did learn some valuable lessons. (1) the batteries in my digital camera fell out and promptly disappeared, (2) we were not sure what we would find but do the research first This show is dedicated to Robert Mc Glew my S3 productions foreign reporter for giving me the idea
COMMENTS: Kent. A ranch town born to supply the needs of the long x Cattle Company. The most famous of the west Texas ranches. Owned by the Reynolds brothers, prominent west Texas ranchers. Their holding consisted of several thousand acres extending from north of us highway 10 to several miles south into the Davis mountains. REMAINS: Lots of ruins but a lot still standing. http://www.ghosttowns.com/states/tx/kent.html
The town, once called Antelope, was founded in the early 1890s.
A post office was granted in 1893 and by 1914 the population was a thriving 25 persons. The population doubled in the mid-1920s and remained at that level for 40 years. The post office was reported closed in 1960 but has since reopened.
Kent had a population of sixty-five in the late 1960s - falling to 60 by the mid-1970s where it remains today.
Today little is left to interest a tourist - but the juncture of the two roads provides a sense of place. The lone telephone at least looks comforting but its condition is unknown. The overpass of I-10 offers some relief from the scorching sun but it will be sometime before Kent becomes a destination.

lIVE CHAT: Black Friday Sales, Turkey Thanks Giving Now Christmas
As with Native traditions in America, celebrations - complete with merrymaking and feasting - in England and throughout Europe after a successful crop are as ancient as the harvest-time itself. In 1621, when their labors were rewarded with a bountiful harvest after a year of sickness and scarcity, the Pilgrims gave thanks to God and celebrated His bounty in the Harvest Home tradition with feasting and sport (recreation). To these people of strong Christian faith, this was not merely a revel; it was also a joyous outpouring of gratitude.
If there is one day each year when food and family take center stage, it is Thanksgiving. It is a holiday about “going home” with all the emotional content those two words imply. The Sunday following Thanksgiving is always the busiest travel day of the year in the United States. Each day of the long Thanksgiving weekend, more than 10 million people take to the skies. Another 40 million Americans drive 100 miles or more to have Thanksgiving dinner. And the nation’s railways teem with travelers going home for the holiday.
Despite modern-age turmoil—and perhaps, even more so, because of it—gathering together in grateful appreciation for a Thanksgiving celebration with friends and family is a deeply meaningful and comforting annual ritual to most Americans. The need to connect with loved ones and to express our gratitude is at the heart of all this feasting, prayerful thanks, recreation, and nostalgia for a simpler time. And somewhere in the bustling activity of every November's Thanksgiving is the abiding National memory of a moment in Plymouth, nearly 400 years ago, when two distinct cultures, on the brink of profound and irrevocable change, shared an autumn feast.
I think we have gone beyond the question of whether Michael Brown was innocent or guilty. It's too late to control what Darren Wilson did but it is still disturbing that the whole truth will never come out. The grand jury hearing and testimony was behind closed doors. The cops will proect their own even at the 100% probability that they knew the town of Ferguson would act out in retritubion. Racial warfare is the highest price to pay agst. a system that will not correct the main dysfuntion of authority that keeps pervading the lives of young Black men. With the fans of the flame, another misinterpration of justice is a fine example of how far America is from comforting its citizens and bringing matters to light.
We try to live healthy and provide a healthy environment for our kids. But, the conveniences of modern living offer so many temptations, and well, it's hard to know if those things that claim to be good for us, really are good for us.

The word "worry" implies being drawn in different directions, distracted, upset in spirit. In His sermon on the mount, Jesus warned against this very thing. He was showing us the secret of a quite mind free from anxiety and unecessary worry about food and clothing. We are not to be threatned by tomorrow's evils. The quite mind exists in an atmosphere of complete confidence in our Father in Heaven. It is comforting to recall that He has" good thoughts toward you for a good end." Someone said, "where our mind goes the rest of us follow." Join us for live prayer Mon-Fri. at 6:00 AM. Dial 714 459-3963 or log on at blogtalkradio/maximum-radio.com.
Garnet Schulhauser practiced corporate law with two large law firms in Calgary, Canada for 34 years before retiring to Vancouver Island in 2008, where he now lives with his wife, Cathy, and little dog, Abby. He grew up on a small farm in Saskatchewan and attended law school in Saskatoon before moving to Calgary to begin his legal career. Although he did not begin writing until after retiring from his legal practice, he now pursues his new career with a passion. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing, kayaking, and long hikes in the forest with Abby. He takes great delight in family gatherings with his two sons, Blake and Colin, and their partners, Lauren and Bergis, and granddaughter Kymera.
Garnet’s life changed dramatically one day in 2007 when he was confronted on the street by a homeless man named Albert. Over the next few years he had a series of conversations with Albert (who was actually a wise spirit guide in disguise) who disclosed startling new truths about life, death, the afterlife, and God. Albert answered all of life’s “big questions” about who we are, our purpose for being on Earth, and what happens to us after we die. Albert’s revelations were inspiring, uplifting, and comforting, and flew in the face of almost everything that Christian holy men had been preaching for centuries. He wrote Dancing on a Stamp at Albert’s request so that these revelations would be available to everyone.
