Hey there! Today, for the most part, was a good day! I experienced an unplanned adventure. Actually, I cannot believe that I did what the “stereotypical ” man does when he believes that he knows how to get to a destination only to discover that he isn’t quite sure where he is going–especially in this day and age of GPS and Google Maps/Directions.
I left home in plenty of time, yet somehow still managed to arrive 20-25 minutes late!
All the back and forth that I did on the roads, I felt that I could have made a cross country road trip!
And, again, like the “stereotypical” man, it didn’t occur to me to just Google the directions or call the contact for help! Well, anyway, I finally got there and yhen the total opposite happened! At some point during the presentation, the speaker/trainer moved me to tears. There I was–just like a woman or baby–crying. Maybe I’ll share more at a later date.
Right now let’s get to what happened during Saturday’s radio show…
Café Talk: What age do you plan to retire OR did you retire?
1st Hour– This Day In History and Top News
“This Day In History” highlights included…
*Waterbury, Connecticut and Troy, New York breaking their state records with sweltering temperatures of 105 and 108 degrees respectively in 1926;
*In 1933, Wiley Post completed his first solo flight around the world. It took him 7 days, 18 hours, and 45 minutes;
*Rev. Sun Myung Moon performed the biggest mass wedding of 2,200 couples in New York City in 1982;
*In 1994, a U.S. federal judge ordered The Citadel, a state financed military college in Charleston, S.C. to open its doors to women.
*Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to a son, George Alexander Louis, who is now third in line to the British throne.
During Top News, I reported and commented on the travel ban on Americans traveling to North Korea; Illinois State Governor Bruce Rauner’s vow to call a special session if Democrats don’t meet his education funding bill deadline; and Amazon’s biggest money maker, it’s cloud computing business.
Rashad sat in with me and helped tackle Café Talk. According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more Americans now work past the traditional retirement age. Again, the big question… at what age do you plan to retire? We both chimed in indicating that as long as we’re able to do the work that we love, we may not ever officially “retire”. Facebookers also chimed in stating the ages of 55, 65, and even agreeing with me and Rashad.
Rashad reported on what was trending on Social Media…
*Actor, John Hurd died.
*Brandon Graze won the British open.
*According to the U. S. Center for Disease Control, it’s not safe to consume papayas right now due to salmonella findings.

2nd Hour – Entertainment News and Passion for Fashion
Bachelorette update: Rachel sent Dean home after hometown visits. I shared that I thought she made a mistake. She should have sent Bryan home. Anyway, next week’s episode will show the final three, Bryan, Eric, and Peter meeting and spending time with her family and friends. Rashad reported on the R. Kelly allegations. We all know that the horrific crimes of human trafficking and sex slaves are real in the United States. Prayerfully, there is absolutely no truth to this. He briefly talked about the passing of Chester Benington, lead singer of Linkin Park. And I reported on the Big3 League convening at the United Center in Chicago.
The topic of Passion for Fashion– “Different Ways to Wear a Crop Top”.
*Sport your crop top with a pair of light weight jeans or pedal pushers (aka capris) for everyday wear.
*Go for the longline sports bra which looks like a crop top, paired with leggings or workout bottoms while working out or exploring the great outdoors.
