Black Owned “Foot Print Farms” in Mississippi Masters the Art of Getting Produce and Meals to Children During the COVID-19 Crisis

[above] Dr. Cindy Ayers, founder of Foot Print Farms, Jackson, Mississippi I would have made a post about Footprint Farms even if there were no COVID-19 crisis, but all the more inspirational now….. Around 70% of school children in Mississippi rely upon free or subsidized lunches. With the arrival of the Covid-19 pandemic, one local […]

Coronavirus, What I’ve Learned So Far (…advice for Family and Friends, because this {expletive} got Real Serious, Real Quick!!!)

…as I’ve stated a gazillion times in this Blog, I’m not licensed or certified in anything, but I think a pretty decent “self taught” wellness researcher. But I’m getting a slew of questions from Family and Friends, so I wanted to put together a post just to have a link to send out. (My family […]

“Music is the Best Medicine” (…..a.k.a., “The Soundtrack of My Life”) Track #10: “I’ll Be Waiting” -Santana

When doing a Santana cover, I guess I could have played it safe one of two ways…. The first way, by doing a classic such as “Black Magic Woman”… …or, by going “commercial”, and catering to the Millennials with Santana’s comeback smash hit “Smooth” from the “Supernatural” album.

Worried you could get Coronavirus? Don’t Panic!!! The vast majority of cases are [supposedly] going to be mild, and people are going to recover just like they do from a cold or flu-like illness.

My [Doug, the blog writer’s] Note: I haven’t researched much yet on what is going on with this Coronavirus thing, and I’m no longer the biggest fan of cutting-and-pasting stuff off the web and reposting it without thorough research, but I felt this post I ran across today on nbcnews.com was a sensible article to […]

“Music is the Best Medicine” (…..a.k.a., “The Soundtrack of My Life”) Track #9: “Beyond” -Leon Bridges

The song “Beyond”, by the self professed “True Texan” Leon Bridges, is an oddity amongst the 250+ songs on my list of songs I want to do covers for… (most of which I’ll never get to, as I enjoy the slow, therapeutic groove of crafting 4-5 songs a year). Why is “Beyond” and oddity unlike […]

Home Cookin’ !!! Sunny Colorful Salads, in a Sunny Colorful Eclectic House, “On the Sunny Side of the Street”, in Maui, Hawaii…

The great thing about when you are addicted to what I call “HGTV Porn” 🙂 , is the house doesn’t have to be exactly your style to like it… I mean, sometimes, I just appreciate someone’s own unique expression of their own style in their home architecture and interior decor. (and I love when people […]

“Music is the Best Medicine” (……. a.k.a., “The Soundtrack of My Life”) Track #7: “Mister Magic” -Grover Washington Jr.

This could be the stupidest analogy ever, as pertains to Jazz Music, but I can always change it later if it starts to sound absurd to me over time…. ….but, the best analogy of the impact of “Mister Magic”, is likened to the what was called the “Christmas Truce” that took place very early in […]

In a test of fish bought in 24 states and the District of Columbia, Oceana found consumers weren't getting what they paid for.  If you order a filet of snapper at a restaurant, you probably expect to be served snapper.
