My Thought When Researching Celebrities...

Every now and then I get into these discussions with family and friends about celebrities.  Some of them claim to know this and that about a star.  I usually notice something funky in their stories and correct them on it, especially if I already did some research of my own.  Usually they redirect the conversation to some other artist when they know they have been proven wrong.  When people don't take a little bit of time to find out a few things about a celebrity, before making comments, they look silly.  They may watch a television show and then falsely assume they know all there is to know.  Case in point, Etta James.  This entertainer recently passed and all one hears about is her funeral.  But the real news, is behind the scenes.  Now how might you research subject matter about what was really going on with an artist leading up to her death?  You might start out by using one or two of your theories, notice I said theory, not fact ie.) follow the money trail, follow a controver…

Thinking about Relocating?

There have been many times in my life that I have moved from one neighborhood, city and state for this reason and that one: a new job, change of scenery, more space, better location, you name it!

Everytime I moved, there was always some new experience I encountered living amongst strangers.  Sometimes the neighbors were friendly and other times they were not.  Sometimes children behaved themselves and then other times I wished I never saw them.  With every move, I would notice the neighbors had a story.  There was always something going on with them that was awkward.  I recall a neighbor who enjoyed drinking not only on the weekends, but through the week too.  Another neighbor enjoyed sharing his pleasure of a certain illegal drug by letting the smoke outside his window so everyone could smell it.  Then there was a neighbor who liked using his Karoke machine every Friday night while a couple found that yelling and screaming about their relationship difficulties every weekend would hel…

It's Time

Revelation is here!  More and more people are seeing that all that glitters in the entertainment industry, television news, talk show circuit, print journalism, front page search engine news, and even people in their own families ain't gold!  We have a lot of "wannabes" walking amongst us.  People that pretend like they are free emotionally, spiritually, and physically, but are really captives in prisons designed by other captives!

You see evidence of this by the many news stories and videos that are watered down!  You may have noticed this when you have attended large churches or watched them on TV.  It's not just you, truth is being watered down by any tax free organization that signed a government document!  Those at the top never want those at the bottom to know what is really going on!  This type of thinking has been going on forever and people at the bottom who speak truth aren't liked and eventually are silenced because of it!

Everything in our media, chur…

Rise Above It

Whatever your "it" is, rise above it!  Now I know that at times we all want to talk a long time about what bothers us to that significant person in our lives, we may call, "My man...my woman...my spouse...my best friend...my boo."  But let's just be honest, how many times have they heard our same broken down song.  "She makes me sick...I wish he would disappear...I can't stand working for...I would rather die then have to put up with..."  To all your story-telling, your partner might make a comment, deeply sigh, offer a little advice, or walk away with, "Not this again!" He or she may have drawn a line in the sand and if it could talk it sounds something like this, "You will not be upsetting me today with your mess! Cut your crazy people off.  Tell your boss to go to...I just don't want to keep listening to this mess!"

"Rise above it!" I say.  You know what?  It's obvious that you are wearing your advisers out…

The Truth is a Hard Pill to Swallow

I have a background in journalism and communications specifically print media.I was taught by a few professors that became rogue reporters over the course of their careers.I say this because I see the tricks the mainstream media uses daily to convince you to believe their versions of the truth.This is why my professors ended up choosing their own paths: rather than continuing on one that was designed for them.They taught their students how to think for themselves...

Updated my Blog: Laboring to Love an Abusive Mate

Since my book was printed, Laboring to Love an Abusive Mate on Amazon.com, some years back, I continued with updating my blog about abusive experiences, signs, and tips.  I thought it was best I do this so that readers of my book would have a place to go online that welcomes their issues, provides solutions and simply understands.  There aren't too many people that will allow themselves to comprehend much less offer assistance to someone who isn't leaving an abusive mate (at least not yet.) 

Many of the contributing writers and myself, have all been there and done that.  Some people may still be going through some challenges and just haven't revealed everything.  I am not where I use to be (in my past experience with abuse,) but because of it, I still have those times where it is difficult for me in my present relationship.

Honesty is the best policy in any relationship.  Be honest about the things that a partner says or does that trigger an emotional outburst.  Tell the …

Just a Word about Online Selling/Marketing on Social Networking Sites

Some business people have bragged about how much money they have received and how many prospects they recruited as a result of marketing and/or selling via social networking sites like MySpace, Facebook, and Black Planet. Yet, what they don’t tell you is the specific details of the plan they used to get them. They avoid telling you this, because they hope to sell what they know in a future e-book, consider their information too valuable to give up and don’t want to have to compete with a fellow seller in the future using the same tactics.  Marketing and/or selling online depends upon two things:  the type of product, service or event you are selling and how you go about marketing in order to get people to act.  However, these days, it isn't easy and all that glitters isn't gold.  Many products, services and events just don't measure up to the hype!  Online marketers lose out on a lot of money and/or time before they find the right system that truly works for them.  Marketi…

New Year's Resolution? None Here

Happy New Year everyone! 

Now just because it's another new year, I'm not requiring myself to create any particular New Year's resolution.  However, I am requiring myself to apply what I have learned last year and do some things that will make my life a little bit more interesting and settled for this year.  Some of which includes: taking care of the basics like relationship and parenting goals, money management and my own personal walk with the Lord (without being confined to church walls and men's twisted teachings of biblical truths.  Can I get an Amen?)  I started changing my outlook in these areas of my life back in 2009.  Then by 2011, I received some life-changing plans.  Everything I did answered the following question, "How do I apply biblical truths to my life each day?"  This year it's time to give birth to what I have been learning.  Notice, I have been in a state of emergency with every change (9-11.)  It is indeed time to come up higher, fol…
