January Jones - A Feel Good World!
Dale Brunner is currently partnered with his daughters and best friend in a movement called A Feel Good World. This movement gives people the knowledge and the means to make the most of their life. It offers a way for each individual to have their future in their own hands. On today’s interview Dale will be sharing his experiences with raising two special needs children.
Dale Brunner has been a self-employed businessman for over 40 years. Because he struggled early in his career and had not found the success he dreamed of, he was determined to do whatever it took to reach personal and financial success. During his career he has taken on every challenge and opportunity with an equal amount of passion and determination to succeed.
This week Laurie Beth is interviewed about her new book, "The Contessa Chronicles". While this is Laurie's latest book to be released, it is one that she has carried in her heart for many years. It springs from pondering the many scriptures that don’t resonate with modern times and understanding. From questions that are raised and then left unanswered. As a nun once asked in Berkeley, “Is God really just an old man, a young man, and a bird?” Why are women so easily erased and condemned in scripture? Why are the Wisdom passages so overlooked? Why is the Holy Spirit, presented as a feminine noun in Hebrew, so quickly reassigned a new gender in subsequent translations, leading to a male dominated culture in religion that belies common sense, as well as demographics?
Meanwhile, where’s the fun? The joy? The vibrancy that exists in life and yet seems almost non existent in the stories we are told about God?
Ultimately, Laurie Beth has come to believe two major things. One is that the Bible is a Love Story, largely of unrequited love. Two. That Jesus was a family man in the very largest sense. He spoke constantly about the love he had for his father. He called us his brothers and sisters. With his dying breath he asked that his mother be loved and cared for after he was gone. He invited us to come home with him, and feast at the banquet table. He said he would send the Holy Spirit to finish the work he started.
And even in Revelations, “The Spirit and the Bride say ‘Come.’” The very real possibility of a wedding exists, even though Armageddon has gotten a lot more air time.
And so we present to you, The Contessa Chronicles. A new imagining of how it might have been, and maybe even, really is, if we are open to tasting some new wine, and are willing to saddle up our own horses for the ride.
In the wake of all the current news and issues in the media, what is the fascination we have with blaming the victims for the violence and problems that are often visited upon them?
Victim Blaming and Shaming?? What the hell is our problem?? Why do we protect predators?
Plus, are there "In your race" conversations?? Things that you on say to "your people" and not in mixed company??

January Jones sadly Remembering 911
On September 11, 2010, for the nine-year anniversary at Ground Zero, Melissa spoke the names of those who passed on 9-11. She said her aunt’s name and a special message. That was live coverage presented nationally and internationally.
One of the biggest losses Melissa has had to deal with was losing her aunt, Arlene T. Babakitis on September 11, 2001. That day was a day no one will ever forget
Fox News interviewed both, Melissa and her mother, Evelyn Pettignano, for their Fox News Documentary in regards to the 10 year anniversary of September 11, 2001 for Bill O'Reilly’s, What's Happening Now.
Melissa and her mother shot a documentary film in New York City, entitled, Forever Changed 911 in Remembrance, in regards to 9-11 for ACLJ- American Center for Law and Justice.

There are a so many great topics and because I have done a tone of shows, some of the topics, I will remix or update. With that being said, What is the "T" on Love?
Do we use that word, too much, too little, too freely, too quickly?
Love between partners? Friends? Parent? Child?
When does Love turn "Obsessive and Possessive?" Is that Love at all??
It is possible to never love at all and still have a happy life.
Come and Pour the T with me, today at 5pm
