Reflection and Hope

Hello my friends and thanks for checking in! This Saturday, December 29th,  our special year end guest is Betty A. Reynolds, a Life and Transition Coach. Betty has been with us on more than one occasion, and she always provides a positive message and some great suggestions on finding your ‘way out’ of confusion with a variety of life’s issues.

We’ll be reflecting back on 2012- interesting? troubling?inspiring?frustrating?heartbreaking?- maybe all of those wrapped up together.

What I am sure of is this. The one constant is time. The world will be moving into a new year, with or without us, and with the prayers of a world population- for peace, love, prosperity, and  a 2013 with enough food for all, eradication of communicable diseases, and an end to senseless conflict and the slaughter of innocents.

So Tune In, Call In, and Get Involved in your life. If not now….when? This is not a dress rehearsal, after all.                                       Radio 4 The Ages….Live   Talk    Radio

God Bless.

Entertainers….We miss them, one and all

Earlier this week I noted with a vocal “Oh no!”, the passing of Jack Klugman…Oscar Madison to many. It wasn’t that I had known Jack, or even had thought of him recently. Or that the Odd Couple tv series that I remember fondly was one of those DVD collections that I’ve listed in my letter to Santa.

I guess it’s just that I have a warm spot in my heart and in my nostalgia bank for entertainers, especially the everyman comics among them. You know the type. I’m sure that if you reflect back to your youth, you’ll likely recapture a humorous moment that was created by a favorite grandparent, aunt or uncle, ‘crazy’ cousin, or one of a myriad of everyday folks who visited your home during the holidays. Those stories that defied explanation, brought a laugh to the party, and left you wondering if it actually happened, or if it was just a fanciful creation from the mind of an entertainer; one who would never attain fame outside his immediate family and circle of friends. Their reward, then as now, was the laughter of loved ones

Entertainers. Priceless they were, and are today. Those folks who raise our spirits, ease our suffering, and generally make this life- which can be a dark place at times even in the brightest of grade school classrooms- more enjoyable.

God Bless.

Show #63: Live from Atria Merrywood, it’s Radio 4 the Ages!

Show #63: Live from Atria Merrywood, it’s Radio 4 the Ages!

Recorded live on December 13th, David and Heather were at Atria Merrywood’s Festival of Trees.  There was food, refreshments, door prizes, live music, and even a silent tree auction in which the proceeds went to Home Instead Senior Care’s Santa-to-a-Senior program which provides gifts to older adults in need in the Charlotte area.  We spoke with Ty Cain (Marketing Director, Atria Merrywood) and Ann Marie Obrikat (Community Sales Director, Atria Merrywood) about the history of the Atria Merrywood community and the benefits residents can enjoy.  We also interviewed Roberta Farnum of Home Instead Senior Care, Cindy Greer of Transition with Care, two lovely residents of Atria Merrywood and several more. Listen in, close your eyes, and relive the merriment of this great event!
