    From Hopeless to Hopeful for Lamar Odom

    in Sports

    Last week, Lamar Odom appeared to be on his death bed.  This week looks a whole lot more hopeful for the former NBA star as he appears to be on the road to recovery.  The Core Show panelists will react to it all at 7pm. 

    At about 720pm, we will react to NFL week 6 with the uppers and downers segment featuring discussions about Colin Kaepernick, the Seattle Seahawks, Tom Brady, the Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert and a stunning revelation about him plus more.

    At about 8pm, we will get into baseball storylines and the 2015 MLB postseason featuring discussions about the job status of Don Mattingly with the Los Angeles Dodgers after their 1st round flameout agains the New York Mets and what the Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays need to do to crawl out of the current 0-2 holes they both find themselves in against the Mets and Kansas City Royals, respectively. 

    At about 820pm, we will get into college football week 7.  Is it the same old UCLA Bruins we are used to seeing after they got blown out by Stanford, who is now a primetime contender for the Pac 12?  Also, since the media "buried" Alabama after their loss to Ole Miss, they went into Athens, Georgia and dominated the Georgia Bulldogs before they went into College Station, TX last weekend and dominated Texas A&M, which begs the question. Who can stop Alabama in the SEC?  We'll explain why it's not Leonard Fournette and LSU.  

    Enjoy the show and thank you for listening.  

  • It's Time for the 2015 MLB Playoffs

    in Sports

    The 2015 MLB Playoffs are here and we are going to issue some predictions in terms of who we think is going to the 2015 World Series and which wildcard team in each league has the best chance to rise up and make a World Series run.  Can the Los Angeles Dodgers overcome their inconsistent bullpen and road issues to return to the World Series for the 1st time since 1988?  Can Clayton Kershaw get a playoff win?  Are the Chicago Cubs ready to overcome the curse of the billy goat and Steve Bartman?  Are the St. Louis Cardinals unbeatable?  Can the Kansas City Royals return to the World Series for the 2nd staight year? We'll have those answers

    We'll also get into college football week 5  and NFL week 4 with the new Uppers and Downers segment.  Is UCLA football poised to come crashing back down to earth after an unforeseen loss against Arizona State?  Is Mark Richt and his days at Georgia numbered after losing big at home to Alabama?  When did the downfall of the University of Texas football begin?  A disturbing trend around the St. Louis Rams has been noticed.  Find out what that is.  Also, we'll the discuss the Cincinnati Bengals offensive dominance, the Kansas City Chiefs offensive ineptitude, the New York Giants secret weapon and the sudden departure of Joe Philbin as head coach of the woebegone Miami Dolphins & much more.

    This show will have plenty of football but some baseball to balance things out a bit.  So, sit back, relax and enjjoy the expertise, passion and banter.

    My Life then and now!

    in Self Help

    Today I am going to talk a little about myself and how I came around to be the woman that I am today.  My life started in 1948.  At the age of three my birth father passed away and my mother married my now dad who back then adopted my older sister and myself.  There are many parts of my younger days that I don't remember - maybe I've blocked them out.....in the meanwhile two other brothers and a baby sister came around. Life seemed fairly "normal" until I was about 15....we had moved from Southern California to Dayton Ohio because my dad had a new job..O!  This is the other thing...I could never figure out why my mother would be ironing my dad's underwear at 3 o'clock in the morning and then watering our front lawn at 11 p.m.  I found out later on that she was hooked on diet pills....that was her thing and at 15 she kindly told me that it looked like I was gaining some weight (I wasn't) and "here, honey - take this pill.  It will help you"...trusting my mom I took the pill and loved it SO much that I asked her for another one the next day....little did I know this was the beginning of my addiction to everything!  I went on a pill rampage at 18 - water pills - then diet pills - I was really a pill head.....had to stay thin or I would never find a man - (my mom told me).....this was the late  60's early 70's.....hippie nation!  everything was in!  I was into uppers, downers, sidewinders anyway but straight, ok?  Then it was the pot and then the psychedelics - for three years straight - every day - I was over the edge one might say....but so was everyone else - through 4 failed marriages and hundreds of men I crashed one day.  I was probably 50 yrs old.....my then husband had been popped on a UA while we were truck driving - we longhauled for some years - and so he couldn't drive -

    The Dangers Of Solar Power Technology To Soular Beings

    in Lifestyle

    We Are Being Told The Solar Energy Technology Is One Of The Most Viable Sources Of Energy But This Is Not True. The Two Most Viable Sources Of Energy On The Planet Are Water And Wind, Solar Energy Technology Should Not Be Used As A Every Day Energy Source. Solar Energy Should Be Used To Grow Crops, Plant Life, Trees And To Grow The Elements Of This Planet, And To Energize People By Way Of Receiving The Sunlight. We Need Sun Light As Our Source Of Energy It Produces Natural Vitamin D3 In The Body. We Also Need The Sunlight To Aide In Our Thought Processing, Without Sun Light We Develop Conditions Like Depression And Sun Downers Disease Which Are The Early Stages Of Dementia. The Ozone Layer Has Been Depleting Around This Planet, It Is Burning Away, And It Is Causing Deadly Hazardous Conditions On The Planet For Plant Life And People Who Are Not Able To Absorb The Sun. People Who Are Not Carbon Rich Will Suffer From Melanoma, Cancer And Other Sun Exposure Diseases, Because They Can Not Absorb The Natural Sunlight. To Combat The Radiation Of The Sun Coming To The Planet Solar Panels Were Created To Deflect The Radiation Of The Sun. This Helps The Human Race Who Can Not Receive The Sun, But For The Black People (Carbon Coded Dark Skinned People) The Sun Is Being Channeled Away From Us Making The People Of Sun Dangerously Deficient In Vitamin D3. The Lives Of The Human Race Are Being Saved While At The Same Time The Carbon Coded People Are Being Harmed Because We Absorb Sunlight. Solar Energy Was Not Meant To Be Utilized To Artificially Light To Energize This Planet.
