Written by Danusha V. Goska, it’s worth the read.
In the Exploring Life segment on Friday we checked out how to treat chigger bites. These little bastards can be painful. If you’ve ever gotten bit by them you know what I mean. We frequently run into them on our beach at our lake house. Anyhow, this looks like a good way to treat them.
Statesman George W. Ball provided our words for breakfast on Friday’s show.
“Nostalgia is a seductive liar.”
I’m sure you’ve thought of this before as you get older and you flip through the radio dial. I think it was about 10 years ago for me when I started finding stuff on the radio like Motley Cru now being played on classic rock stations. Now when I grew up it was stuff like Boston, Kansas, The Eagles, The Who, Aerosmith, and Van Halen. That has expanded over the years. Now bands like Green Day are starting to make their way into the class rock radio landscape. Check out this interesting article I discussed on the show this morning.
A little humor for you this morning.
“Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.” – Erma Bombeck.
Mike Rowe has been one of my favorite celebrities to watch this past year. His new MikeRoweWorks organization is something that is much needed. Today in the Exploring Life segment we took a look at his new SWEAT Pledge. It stands for Skill & Work Ethic Aren’t Taboo. It has 12 points on how Americans can regain that can-do spirit. I applaud this effort.

Your words for breakfast.
“Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake somebody up.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
In our Lessons in Leadership segment this morning we continued the series on American Founders and their View of Human Nature. We’re now looking at the four types of human nature. Today we explored the Romantic View of Human Nature. This view suggests, basically, we’re the result of our environment – that humans are basically good and it’s the world around us that turns us bad, whether’s it’s an injustice we’re born into, suffering at the hands of others, or the effects of an institution on us. Since we’re speaking in general terms of what the Romantic View is, the general opposition to it (which I largely agree with) is that the Romantic View does not account for individual responsibility. Our Founder’s vision took into account a high degree of individual responsibility.
On the Exploring Life segment this morning I talked about this little map. I found it interesting comparing the different areas of the country. As summer is in full swing now, check out where you are and when you might expect the warmest day of the year to take place in your neck of the woods.
Today’s Words for Breakfast:
“It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them.” – Mark Twain
