Saturday Fun & Saturday Songs…

Do Saturdays still hold any excitement for you? The idea 💡 of something to do with no other agenda except to have fun 😊 I always liked this old song, even though his sister was the better singer 👩‍🎤

 

Have a great Saturday!

Friday Radio Report…

Happy New Year! It’s my first show of the 2019 season & as always, it was FUN with the 180’ Crew!!!

LOTS of texts about gardening today –

  •  Plants to prevent insects? Marigolds, mums, lavender, rosemary, lemon grass just to name a few.
  • Is black or red mulch painted? No, it’s dyed. It’s generally safe but can be made from recycled wood instead of bark. Check it out
  • can I trim crepe myrtles now? Yes!

Lori Nunnery was in the house today to fill us in on what’s happening in Jackson this weekend. LOTS of music! And much, much more! Check out this link for full details – https://jacksontn.com/tourism/

Happy New Year! 💥🎉 Welcome 2019!

Happy New Year! 💥🎉

Another New Year = A clean slate. A blank canvas. An open road of possibilities! I for one am excited! I hope we all make the best of 2019 and beyond.

2019 = An open road of possibilities! Let’s make the most of it. Happy New Year!

Last year I decided to set a goal, to do a daily Blog & not to miss a day… Today that goal was fulfilled 😊 It’s been a lot of work! But also a LOT of FUN! I’ve learned quite a bit about myself by committing to this daily task. This year I plan to keep on Blogging… Not every day in 2019, but weekly and more. Thank you for subscribing to my blog and reading what I posted. I watched my #’s go up & up & up all year! Hopefully it will keep growing and the inspiration will keep coming!

Commitment to a daily blog was the toughest and the most rewarding thing I did last year. Today marks the 1 year anniversary- 365 consecutive days of Blogging…

Now, I’ve got to get busy cooking! Our family always gets together on New Years Day and eats the traditional meal (Pork, greens, black eyed peas & Cornbread) – I’m in charge of the Peas & turnip greens this year 😊

I LOVE our New Years tradition of eating dinner with the family. We always have fried Hog Jowl, Black Eyed Peas, Turnip Greens & Cornbread! Plus much more … Happy New Year 🎊 

 

“Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man.”

~ Benjamin Franklin

 

Happy New Year Everyone! 💥🎉❤️

“Should auld acquaintance be
Forgot
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be

and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.”

“Fear Not: For, Behild, I Bring You Good Tidings Of Great Joy” – The Christmas Story

The day is finally here! Merry Christmas! The food, family & fun go hand in hand this time of year. But, it’s easy to loose sight of what Christmas is really all about.

This old Peanuts story tells “What Christmas is All About” in a really cool way that has touched many people over the years. If you follow Charlie Brown you know about Linus and his security blanket. He clings to it! But notice that Linus actually puts down his blanket while he recites the Christ story from the Bible (Luke 2:1-20). When he says “Fear Not” he drops his blanket 😊 Faith gave him strength over his fears…

 

Merry Christmas! Peace on earth & good will towards men!

Mark Carter 🎅🏻

Merry Christmas 🎅🏻❤️🎄
