The school year has started but the pigs have given up on school and aren't doing their homework. All but one, that is. Smarty Pig is working hard. Although she gets teased, her report card shows her hard work, while the others fail. They reach out to her, and she becomes their tutor. By creating games in their home that practice skills, Smarty Pig shows them that they can learn, and it's really fun after all. She helps them understand that learning is not just for school, it's for life.

Beverley Golden is a writer, raconteur, wordsmitherer, song creator, soul hippie, peacenik and self-professed guinea pig, who loves testing unconventional ways to shift paradigms in the playing fields of health care, storytelling and of course, world peace. With the heart of a compassionist, she views the world as a full glass optimist and courageously uncovers the humour in life’s crazy situations, offering hope, while promoting inner wisdom through the written word. “Trust your intuition even when no one else sees your point of view” is her signature mantra. A curious observer of human nature, she loves challenging complacency, stimulating ideas and inspiring conversations. Most recently, her writings can be found on the Huffington Post and Intent Blog, among others. Her first book, Confessions of a Middle-Aged Hippie, bursts with anecdotes from her years in the entertainment industry, coupled with her stories of survival from a life lived with health issues. The stories in this unconventional memoir really were written in eight days, another example of her passion for turning the “impossible” into possible. Beverley is a media savvy speaker and loves to talk about lifestyle and topical current issues relating to health and well-being, peace, creativity and the arts. She lives in Toronto, Canada.
The state of Atlanta has always had a cloud over it, like Pig Pen. But in the last few years both the Hawks and Falcons have had success that put them in the spotlight for the first time in many decades. The Falcons, until the past two seasons, had 6 years of success, playing highly competive football, making the playoffs, winning the division, fans paying attention. The Atlanta Hawks have been to the playoffs for the past 8 years in a row, they won the division last year, got the top seed in the Eastern Conference, had the coach of the year, 4 players make the all star team. This year we have new uniforms, new fans, strong attachment to players in the community. But the last few weeks have seen things that many people view as issues. Makes them worried about their favorite teams. Lets talk about the past week and see how bad it really is and can it be fixed. Tune in, Call in, Listen in.

According to some sources, the term may have first been used in 1962 by civil rights activist and poet Amiri Baraka. 1962 was the same year that Sylvia Woods opened her now-famous Harlem restaurant Sylvia’s; today, Sylvia is known by many as “the Queen of Soul Food.” Soul food restaurants and cookbooks continued to be popular through the ’70s.
Soul food is basic, down-home cooking with its roots in the rural South. The principle staples of soul food cooking are beans, greens, cornmeal (used in cornbread, hush puppies, johnnycakes, and as a coating for fried fish), and pork. Pork has an almost limitless number of uses in soul food. Many parts of the pig are used, like pigs’ feet, ham hocks, pig ears, hog jowl, and chitlins. Pork fat is used for frying and as an ingredient in slowly-cooked greens. Sweet, cold drinks are always a favorite.
“Soul” or “Southern?”
To a lot of people, all that just sounds like a description of Southern food. The distinctions between soul and Southern are hard to make. In his 1969 Soul Food Cookbook, Bob Jeffries summed it up thusly: “While all soul food is southern food, not all southern food is ‘soul.’ Soul food cooking is an example of how really good southern Negro cooks cooked with what they had available to them.”
Soul food has its roots in slavery, when African Americans had to make do with whatever food was available to them. For the next hundred years after the abolition of slavery, most African Americans lived in poverty, so recipes continued to make use of cheaper ingredients. Of course, this isn’t entirely a black/white issue.
On this episode we talk to the awesome Steve Green the man behind the incredibly popular monday night worldwide phenomenom on twitter #foodiechats. Steve made a hashtag a household term in the food world as well as a thriving business. check out Foodiechats.com and as always #foodiechats
Hello and welcome to #Foodiechats, I am Steve Green, Founder and CEO. I’ll start by sharing that I’m born and raised in Downtown Chicago! One of the best foodie towns in the world! So if you’re ever in Chicago, send me a Tweet, so we can Eat, Instagram and Meet
The three core values of #Foodiechats for me are the following:
My Love of Food and being a Social Foodie
Building Communities, Live and Online
The Power of the Hashtag
My love of food began as a young child. My family always had different theme dinner nights, such as Taco Night, which was my favorite. A tradition that I still love to this day! Growing up, I was introduced to very eclectic food such as Sushi, Oysters, Caviar, Pig Ears, Seafood and much more. We equally had dinner at home, as well as, dined out at the hottest restaurants. As a teenager, I worked at the Taste of Chicago, and at my Grandfathers Hot Dog Restaurant.

And if you guessed that after that phone call I sent an email to President Barack Obama with the subject heading "Totes Figured Out How to Defeat Isis. Play Them This Conversation on a Loop," you are, indeed, correct. Anyway, my parents are older and cute and RHOA is older and ... something. NeNe-less (she's returning as a guest at the end of the season)? Definitely. Revitalized? Kind of, thanks to Sheree bringing the appropriate amount of drama before people had time to digest their first pig-in-a-blanket at Cynthia's party. That's right, guys! We maybe have lost a NeNe, but we gained a Sheree, who is injecting some much-needed life into this aging series and into last night's premiere, which was pretty solid, but Sheree didn't really shine until she strutted into Cynthia's sunglasses-line launch party. Much like this show, this career venture of Cynthia's makes no sense and I'm here for it. So let's discuss!
I lied. One more thing before we talk about last night. Let's check out each of the ladies' taglines:
