SORT BY Relevancy
MEEP MEEP!! ACME Cleaners, Inc...
Co-host Melissa Meeps joins me, and hopefully a lot of Peep's too, as we talk about cleaning out the house, literally and mentally. Usually reserved for March or April and 'Sprinig Cleaning' season, uh, I'm a little slow, so Fall it is. . So, before the LONG winter ahead for all of us clipped-winged Snow BIrds, I best clean 'my house' to my approval, so I an live more comfortable in quiet. And possibly, then come next year, I can LITERALLY make a LEAP in 2015 without solace. Admittedly, I struggle with folks that have NO SOCIAL skills in place. . Struggle hard. Sure, it frustrates me greatly that most Survivors re-learned 'friendships' from their past involvements, learned to share solid words on their own, without guidance (don't get me started there). The Big EYE, as in 'I' often overtakes recovery and puts us at our own level. Eventually, its time to come back home. Lot's of 'I's' in this world, a lot. I just spent the week lilstennig to many of our radio network's offerings. The "I's"' have it maxed out. Thanks listeners, for making TMDS about US....BTW: glitches in the 'routine' this week set me back, but Meeps! and Sam will lead the Way! If not, well, just another glitch WE have to overcome - with a smile!
Next week, Jeff Gabbard of the Indiana State Fire Marshall will be in studiio (for real), offering tips on FIRE PREVENTION AND SAFETY WEEK. 2013 Canadian 'Courage' Awardee and 2014 'Beyond Truama Super Hero' Michael Coss will call in from the great (soon to be) white north! We've each won the same, rarely issued awards in the past few years. Anticipate insperation from a pair of voices never before heard together (except by us).
Joining Melissa and myself, is of course Sam Way, and latter on Deborah Berry. God, don't let me burn this night up! It get's better. Jeff Gabbard stops by LIVE! from the Downtown Milton Studio. Jeff is the Fire Chief of the Cambridge City Fire Department by 24/7, and Indiana Deputy Fire Marshall by 7 days a week. Oh, EMS, Nurse, Master Firefighter, even a drag car racer. Let's talk about Fire Safety and prevention. Jeff and both his 'staffs' did just that this past week, going into the schools and addressing citizens about 'blazing hell' - which turns into trauma for someone. We learned not to play with matches, and graduated to smoke alarms and personal fire extengushers. But, MR and MRS TBI (or Miss), do you know when to use, HOW to use, or properly checked the fighting apperatice?
Need help? Take notes. This is a fantastic opportunity to discus fire, EMT and first-respoce questions. Have any? Ever been on the other side, where you was the FIRST needing response, but was, uh, knocked out or something?
More first responce of the lawful side is expected. Milton Police Chief Josh Russell may stop by, time permitting (busy schedule that EVER changes, he has) and discuss house and home safety, neighborhood watch programs and just what to do if that weird looking goblin' hangs around your house too long during Halloween. Josh is also an emergency responder, thank you God - he's done it at my house a FEW times. My version of C.O.P.S. - Concerned, Offering Police Service. Talk to an officer, share and trade TBI concerns of living alone, confussion and efforts by both us, and them. Register.
Yep, Sting said I could, so I'm playing The Police during breaks tonight....
Rev. Michelle Rado, uses a quote from Ken Carey's book The Third Millennium, "Accept the understanding that emerges in response to the moments of your life. Do not strive for more comprehension than that which appears effortlessly.", as the basis for this weeks episode, where she takes a deep dive into a real life circumstance when our heart "knows better" and is trying to lead us in the direction of true happiness, but our head is telling us that we should be doing something else. She offers 3 Steps that we can all use to help us to find the courage to follow our hearts knowing.
Nope, not a Comedy Club where folks make fun of TBI, in fact let US TBI Survivors enjoy a night on the "town" (well, Connersville anyway)! Draining, a bit, sure. But smiled, laughed, observed, enjoyed, visited and certanly, was ready to go home. But after the show, which was over by 'funtastic' 10 p.m. Yes, in time for meds and beds.
Can you go out on the town? Make sure friends and trusted folks are around, if need be. But only if need be. Enjoy the moment, and most importantly - allow your 'date' or 'sidetripper' to enjoy the night too? Well, it takes practice to be social. So well discuss a few SOCIAL SKILLS tonight, which doesn't mean buying the next drink, or flirting beyond control.
I personally spent the evening with TMDS Medical Director Kevin Butterfild and crew on Saturday in his "comedian" role, which is every day, all day long. A survivor of a TBI at a young age, Kevin enjoys the moments of the day, well, usually that is. HA!!! He, funny man (and he is!) Jimmy Roberson open the nights parade of humor, ADULT HUMOR, Closed by Headliner Comic Matt Holt. Guess who recorded the show, for you to here. So, send the kids to bed in about an hour, and we'll listen in for an hour or so. Funny, with the normal comedy club routines of relationships, sex, gender, race if not creed. AND of course make fun of themselves too! Its a COMEDY SHOW. No pure predjudices or direct offensive remarks intended directly towards any one.
So, as we laugh and try to "enjoy" our brain injuries on TMDS every Sunday, enjoy with a toungue in cheek. Or what ever that is in your mouth....
We’re going at a higher rate of speed tonight from the downtown Milton studio, for this weekend TBI Awareness race car driver Ernie Francis Jr. took a whole world of survivors to the top. Co-hosts 'Meeps' will Peep in, and Sam has his Way. TMDS Medical Director Kevin Butterfield is watching his coffee perk, he'll be here. My buddy Matthew Olsen will contact us from Michigan in the second hour, let's advise him of what we know. AND, the third hour by Skype if not Stealth is our lovely, er, professional TBI Correspondent from South Africa, Gina Gee.
Not only winning the annual Virginia International Speedway Trans American TA3 race today, but becoming the youngest driver EVER to win a Trans American championship was Ernie Francis Jr. in the TA3 Division Series. Yep, our MAN is 16. Not sure he owns a razor yet. With his season’s fifth overall win in TransAm this afternoon, his #98, or #9 (even #86 if it worked for you), Junior runs also for YOU, TBI Survivors. In fact, several of us passed away or still kickin’ had our names wrtitten right on top of the camaro this weekend, for the entire racing world to see. He has NOT been influenced by a survivor in his life, nor really knew any, until this summer. His primary infuence comes from God, and his dad. Junior simply wishes to promote what he KNOWS can happen anytime they buckle up on the track, or you do on the highway. Ask my friend John Mills. Young but a senior in high school is well grounded, having met and stayed with his crew and dad at Mid-Ohio. His father Ernie owns and operates (works so hard too) Breathless Performance Racing. He’s driving the beautiful hauler down the road to Miami now. Let’s see if we can reach the Champs…

In 2014 The Fearless Are Redeemed!
