"Stop, Rest, Think... Electric Shock "
Hi! Welcome back to the show. I'm T. Anthony Bland also known as Whitebeard and yes, I am flying solo again which is actually a good thing. This weeks thoughts came out of necessity. I had been driving everyday without a break. Anyone who drives for a living or takes long road trips or adventure travels, understands how draining the road can be. Fatigue becomes very familiar and the lack of routine becomes a thing of the past. Without proper sleep and the absence of my daily exercise, I started to crash. So I planned a weekend getaway to simply rest... yeah, it didn't go as planned.
I planned the weekend because I recognized the signs. Our current culture pushes us all to work more, longer hours, everyday, multitask, fill empty space and time with something. It calls us to drown the silence with noise and activities. Then we wonder why we're constantly "on edge". This cycle causes health, married and even financial issues. There was study conducted and the results were... people would rather have electric over sitting quietly with their own thoughts. There is a reason why God rested from his work, called for and ordained a "day of rest" for our frail human minds and bodies. And that, dear listener, is the focus of today's thought. Get comfortable and let's talk.

" I Quit My Job and Other Crazy News"
Welcome back! Well a lot has happened since I last spoke to you in December of 2022. Because we never really ended the show or the season officially, we'll just called this Season 3 instead of starting Season 4...for now. Soooo this week, Monday, I quit my job. At 60 years old in a new state it might not have been the smartest thing but It needed to happen. I also took a month off from social media as always and came back to a geriatric poop show in the world of politics. Are you ready for the return? Get your coffee, tea, wine, beer or lemonade and let's talk. It's been a while, I've forgotten how to do this...
"Diabetic Drug Shortage and Moving To A New State"
Welcome back everyone. We have been having a hard time filling a prescription for my (WB) diabetes. It's been back ordered for months in some cases. Which makes life extremely difficult. Because of the difficulty finding it, we looked online to see what's going on. We were shocked at the findings! The FDA approved Trulicity and Ozempic to be used as a "weight management" drug, which puts lives at risk. Not only do we discuss that, but we have finally moved out of NYC. Are you ready...? Let's talk.

"Roe vs Wade" After 49 Years The Decision Returns To The States...Americans React Horribly
**Caution: "N" will be said during this episode. Welcome back to the Crazy Train. No doubt we've all that heard that the 49 year ruling of Roe vs Wade has been overturned and returned back to States. Which if you didn't know, was where it all was in the beginning. However if you listen to most people today, you'd think the sky was falling. Abortion has been around for a few centuries in the United States, it had tight restrictions from the start and along the way became the monster it is in modern times. The biggest problem with this outcome, for the uninformed and general public, is what has happened to us. Americans returning and hating each other. **After recording this show, I found a video of Ireland Baldwin, Alex baldwin's daughter, talking about her abortion and how "I chose me and I would choose me again". This is the problem with "abortion on demand", this is the typical everyday abortion... Let's go, get your tickets and take a ride with me on the Crazy Train. #roevwade #roevswade #abortion

"From Dave Chappelle To Chris Rock, Will Smith's Slap Proves What Comedians Have Been Saying for Years"
I was sitting down in pain recovery from a 4 mile hike earlier in the day. Jumped IG for a minute to see Chris Rock getting slap by Will. I immediately searched the internet for more information. Some said it was a hoax... But Rock's reaction proved otherwise. This was in absolute display of insanity on Smith's part. His actions claiming it was for his wife's honor "keep my wife's name out your f**king month" he repeated. A woman we all know hasn't honored their marriage or Smith... Get your tickets and take your seat because the crazy train is leaving the station.

"What Do You Do When You're Done...? The SEX Talk"
It's Tuesday!!! Hello and welcome back. You will notice we put the "Explicit" label on this episode because our subject today is sex. The label isn't because we're being vulgar in any way it's just for the subject. We were watching an episode of "Switched At Birth" when Toby and Nikki listen to Nikki's mom and had sex before marriage. TK paused the show and asked "What do you do afterwards...?". As awkward as it was we talked about it. Even though that was about a month ago, I thought it was a good subject to let you listen in on maybe even start talking yourself. You ready for this?

**This episode was recorded in June but never aired. Amazon's original, "Little Axe" an anthology by Steve McQueen. Each stand alone episode tells the story, some true some fictional, of Caribbean migrants to England. It doesn't say the years but it goes from late 50's, 60's to 80's. There's this one episode, "Lovers Rock" that took me (Whitebeard) way back to the Jamaican house parties I went to in my teens. Man! I could smell the sweat through the screen. Mmm... and aunt Carmen cooking in the kitchen! Anyway, this isn't just a review but something much more. A larger discussion if you will about the African diaspora. hang with me till the. Come on let's get started.

A typical day in NYC, the Bronx, is filled with noise. Airplanes, helicopters, buses, trucks, cars, gunshots, screaming, fights, extremely loud music in different languages blasting from cars and apartments. And of course who can forget the young boys on dirt bikes, holding up traffic riding on the wrong side of the street. It's Tuesday! So let's talk about the escape to the Outdoors. Oh, by the way, we hate summer hiking but this place is well worth the trek. Want to hear about it? Jump in the backseat and take a ride with us.
