Okay! I’m finally getting around to writing this radio show recap and blog post. Today is Thursday and certainly by now the post would have been published. The culprit? Well, let’s just say that I have been “living out” what I say is important to me– spending quality time with and enjoying family and friends; exercise; reading; and tweaking plans for my future. We made some good memories. Okay. Sometimes we say one thing but do another! We say are families are important to us but we put work, business, and even play before them most times. However, I’ve noticed that some people have figured out a way to incorporate family in all aspects of their lives. Let’s face it! You must work or do business to sustain yourself and loved ones. Also, to keep a semblance of sanity, we must have some recreation, hobby, and social activity. Figuring out a way to include family and close friends to the mix makes a lot of sense. Here’s a few ideas…
*Set meetings or appointments throughout the day, week, and month with family and friends. Include them when possible on business trips.
*Don’t be a work-a-holic! Your work will be there when you get back to it.
*Learn to delegate.
*Learn to love video calling.
Missed the last show? Things got a little spiritually deep! Here’s what happened…
Cafe Talk: Who and/or how do you worship?
1st hour – Top News
I reported and chimed in on the continued negative press about the 2016 Summer Olympics. The big story, of course being about Ryan Lochte, the 12 time U. S. Olympic medalist in swimming–his apology for his fabricated story of being robbed while in Rio de Janeiro. Personally, I think that he was so intoxicated and possibly high that he and his fellow Olympian friends really thought that they were being robbed by fake security guards/police!! Anyway, as we have all heard, this misstep has caused him to lose several endorsement deals starting with Speedo and Ralph Lauren. Can he bounce back? Well, as of today(8/25/16), it’s been reported that he has a new endorsement deal with Pine Brothers cough drops ( cough, cough); and he will be a contestant on the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars! Stay tuned.
In political talk, I revealed that Jill Stein, the 2016 Green Party Presidential candidate currently has 5% of supporters compared to Hillar Clinton’s 45%; Donald Trump’s 35%; and Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson’s 9%–that’s according to recent CNN poll.

Moving on to the Café Talk segment and special in-studio guest, Pastor David G. Latimore who tackled the deep question..what exactly is worship from a spiritual perspective and what shoukd it look like in our lives as Christians? Go here for audio of the segment. He confirmed that worship is a lifestyle and requires more than just attending church on Sundays. However, attending church is an expression of worship itself! Pastor Latimore also shared exciting details about a worship experience that he and My. Zion Baptist Church is bringing back to the suburban Chicagoland area. Check this out…
We’re looking forward to seeing you all there!!!
2nd Hour – Entertainment News
During TV Talk, I took a look at an article from TV Guide that focused on actors that have been fired from television series/shows. Some were fired for strange reasons like attacking show producers! Some have gone on to other shows while others have not.
My inspiration for the Passion for Fashion segment came from Refinery 29. Check it out at www.marilynscafesociety.com.
