***Congratulations to Trish and Everett - Wed on May 31, 2009 ***

Tonight we spent some quality time with Huck Bothner, a 3 year cancer survival and he spoke about his personal story as well as the Relay For Life program that raises money for the American Cancer Society. Huck walks in the Laurel, Maryland chapter of the Relay For Life program (in fact, he is co-chair). So he is inviting all interested parties to join in at your local Relay for Life or join them in Laurel Maryland on June 13, 2009.

Later, we had the pleasure of interviewing Rhonda Carpenter and Heather Roulo on their collaborative project known as where they help network authors from and help them market themselves through the power of networking. You can visit them for more information and find out more on what all the racket is about over there.

Happy Memorial Day!!
Happy Anniversary to Joel & Sharen!!

Another fine show is in the can. During hour 1 we interviewed children's author William Sawyers and we talked about his work which includes poetry, riddles and stories for children of all levels and we talked to him about his inspirations for his differing levels of elevating through the various works. William also donates some of his proceeds to help local schools in his community.

Later, we had an enlightening conversation with Naturopath, Michael Schwartz regarding aiding the body's defenses against getting sick. Michael talked about how valuable minerals are and also told us that the traditional over-the-counter products just do not cut it. You can view industry papers, product reports and the products that his company puts out and it is recommended that you listen to the show archive to get some great first steps to defending yourself.

Tonight we were joined by Frank Cotolo and we spoke about alternative broadcasting and who among popular talk show hosts have earned the right to their own opinions. Basically, no one but listen to the replay to find out what we thought of it as a whole.

Also on the program, where did the Swine Flu..ooops..the H1N1 Swine Flu go? It headed off to page 5 and deeper in the media but do NOT stray from taking care of yourself. Personal sanitation and hygiene are still very important in everyday life. We also spoke about Star Trek and LadyB shared the opening weekend grosses and Joel said the movie was fantabulous.

She also talked about her latest project at Podioracket and we will have her back again soon to discuss that project and how it might help authors.

We also covered a few news notes:
1. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of beloved actor/comedian Dom DeLuise who passed away at the age of 75
2. We have some important Swine Flu info that you can use:

Swine Influenza & You - updated April 29, 2009, 10:55 PM ET

The symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to those of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with swine flu.

Swine influenza viruses are not spread by food and you cannot get it from eating pork or pork products. Flu viruses are spread mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people who have the virus. Sometimes people become infected by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching their mouth or nose. Infected people may infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 7 or more days after becoming sick. Children, especially younger children, might potentially be contagious for longer periods.

There is no vaccine available yet to protect against swine flu but you can take these everyday steps to help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like influenza:

  1. First and most important: Wash Your Hands Often for 15 to 20 seconds using soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Simply rinsing your hands under running water without using soap does not kill germs - it spreads them. Alcohol-based hand cleaners, wipes, or gel sanitizers are also effective and may be used when soap and water are not available. If using gel, rub your hands until the gel is dry.
  2. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze. Put the tissue in the trash immediately after you use it.
  3. Try not touch contaminable surfaces. Some viruses and bacteria live 2 hours or longer on surfaces like doorknobs, coffee pots, telephones, keyboards, and desk tops. Alcohol-based wipes may be used to sanitize these items.
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread when someone contacts respiratory droplets from another person on such a surface and then touches their own eyes mouth or nose before washing their hands.
  5. Maintain good general health: get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
  6. Avoid close contact with sick people.
