“My Diet is Better Than Yours”– One Weight Loss Show You Must Watch

January always brings us a myriad of weight loss and “get fit” shows on TV, and I’ll admit, I usually skip them. But not this time.

One of my best friends from my days in Oklahoma City, Latasha Givens, is a cast member on “My Diet is Better Than Yours”! I’ve been pretty excited about this ever since I found out about it…

Go beyond the usual cocktail small talk with this list. Claude Sitton, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist lauded for his coverage of the civil rights era, died this week. Sitton worked for The New York Times (as well as several other publications), and between 1958 and 1964 he wrote some 900 articles about the ongoing struggle for civil rights in the South. Sitton set the national standard for journalistic coverage of this critical time in our history, and many of his articles prompted…

More Details about RT

Remember last week when I said I was thrilled, shocked, and honored to be invited to RT Booklovers Convention this year?
