Episode 60. Hart County: Where Grandparents’ Dreams Come True



Hart County, Ky, is a fascinating destination for grandparents and their grandchildren to spend time. Located in south central Kentucky, you’ll find gently rolling hillsides, underground rivers, caves, ziplines and covered wagons in which to rest your head. It’s a grandparent’s dream come true … a place to make memories with your grandchildren.

Joining me today to share the fun families can expect once they hop off the interstate is Sandra Wilson, the executive director at Hart County Tourist Commission.

Episode 58. Positive Messages are Critical to Raising Healthy Children



 

Ivy Butler loves to snap photographs. He’s done so since his children were little, and he is continuing that tradition with his grandchildren. You can view those images on his Instagram site @thegrandfatherdiary. He and his wife were foster parents to numerous children and adopted the last five, which makes him and his wife the parents of seven children and the grandparents of 13.

The Butler Family is of mixed race and experiences challenges many grandparents face: lack of contact with children and grandchildren, long-distance grandparenting, and grandchildren living with grandparents.

Ivy cherishes his family and enjoys the times with them life affords. Part of his handling life’s challenges so graciously comes through being a certified life coach. He says neuroscience has proven one can rewire his or her brain and change one’s life with new input. Listen to his joy of being a grandfather, the impact Earl Nightingale had on his life, and Ivy’s mission to help others learn the value of positive self-talk and the necessity of positive talk with children.

I am thrilled to welcome Dr. Philip Ovadia, a heart surgeon who has lost more than 100 pounds and has kept those pounds off for many years. He has written a fascinating book: STAY OFF MY OPERATING TABLE: A HEART SURGEON’S METABOLIC HEALTH GUIDE TO LOSE WEIGHT, PREVENT DISEASE, AND FEEL YOUR BEST EVERY DAY.

As with many Americans, I need to lose weight. I look at pictures from 10 years ago and wonder how did these pounds creep up on me? I find it harder and harder to lose weight. I used to be able to walk a little faster, exercise a bit longer or lay off the ice cream for a few weeks and the pounds would come off. That’s not working for me now.

After reading an advance copy of his book and interviewing Dr. Ovadia, I know metabolic health is more important than the number on the scale. Dr. Ovadia gives us five measures to determine our metabolic health, and I am pleased only one of my numbers is off, but there’s a thin Carolyn inside me and I want her back.

If any of you are interested in joining me on a weight loss challenge, please send me an e-mail and let’s do this together!

Episode 41. Zen Pig teaches mindfulness



Episode 41 Zen Pig with children’s author Mark Brown

Please join me in welcoming to the podcast Mark Brown, the author of a series of books that feature Zen Pig as the main character.

Zen Pig teaches young readers the importance of gratitude, justice, empathy, compassion, and other soft skills that are important for people of all ages to embrace. Mark initially wrote the first book for his son, Noble. He wanted to ensure his son learned gratitude at an early age – not later in life as he had – and Noble’s behavior and curiosity have inspired the remaining titles.

Admittedly, mindfulness skills often prove challenging for adults to learn, but Mark says Zen Pig demonstrates mindfulness in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner.

Mark Brown’s vision is for families to enjoy the books and for teachers and school systems to incorporate mindfulness activities into classroom settings on an ongoing basis. To make doing so easy for teachers, Mark and his team have created free lessons plans teachers can download.

Episode 40. Celebrating Grandparents with author Ann Richardson



Ann Richardson is a grandmother of two boys, the mother of a son and a daughter, and the author of Celebrating Grandmothers: Grandmothers talk about their lives.

This heartwarming book looks at the excitement and challenges 27 women from various cultures experience in their role as grandmothers. How did becoming grandmothers change the texture of their lives? How do they now view themselves? How did they feel when they held their grandchildren for the first time? The poignant stories will make you smile and tug at your heartstrings.

Although about grandmothers, the book is not exclusively for them. It would make a great gift for a new member of the Grandmothers’ Club and for anyone interested in the importance of nurturing relationships.

Touching: The Human Significance of the Skin
Ashley Montagu, The Late Ashley Montagu
Harper & Row, 1978 – Body language – 384 pages

https://www.google.com/books/edition/Touching/XU7Z_aqCYggC?hl=en&gbpv=1&dq=inauthor:%22Ashley+Montagu%22&printsec=frontcover

A groundbreaking achievement when it was first published in 1971, this moving and absorbing examination of the importance of tactile interaction-touching-on all facets of human development is now brought thoroughly up to date in light of research since 1978. Dr. Montagu here devotes special attention to the relation of the skin and touching to mental and physical health; the discovery of the immunological functions of the skin; the importance of touching, especially for older people; a demonstration of the harmfulness of newfangled methods of dealing with the newborn; gender differences; new experimental studies on the deprivation effect; the relation between touching and imaging; and the uses of touching in psychotherapeutic situations.


Episode 38. This Bronx Girl Knew She Could



Episode 38. This Bronx Girl Knew She Could

Life was not easy for the little girl growing up in the Bronx. Alcoholic parents, domestic violence, a learning difference, wrong decisions, infidelity, and depression left Kimberly Yvette Griffin longing for a lifestyle for her and her three children that seemed beyond her reach.

Writing in her journal helped her cope with feeling isolated. It helped when her parents died and again after her son Joey committed suicide.

A harsh reality forged a resolve and transformed this mother of three and grandmother of two into an award-winning publisher, editor, entrepreneur, motivational speaker, podcast host, public health advocate, author of seven children’s books, and founder of a non-profit organization.

My conversation with Kimberly Griffin will begin with a look at the non-profit organization, Support Joey’s Heart, and a discussion about depression. Welcome, Kimberly. Please tell us about Joey and the non-profit that honors his memory.

Episode 37. Grandson Strives to Secure a Best Historical Album Grammy award in 2022 to Honor Grandpa



Episode 37. Grandson strives to honor his Grandfather and the 746th Far East Army Air Force Band and secure a Best Historical Album Grammy award in 2022

Hark back to the era of the big band, jazz and swing music and the names Glenn Miller, Vaughan Monroe, Dizzie Gillespie, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and Louis Armstrong come to mind.

Lost among those sounds are the World War II bands that went to war. Many of those 500 military bands accompanied combat units and performed concerts close to the front lines.

The 746th Far East Army Air Force Band performed in the Philippines. After Japan surrendered and the soldiers were preparing to head home, they had the opportunity to record in their tent, in the jungles outside Manila, an afternoon performance of original arrangements of popular jazz tunes, thus creating the only known album by a frontline band unit.

Our guest today is historian Jason Burt, grandson of Corporal Richard Burt, the band’s lead trumpeter. The younger Burt has worked with Grammy-winning sound engineers to remaster and digitize the band’s 1945 performance. His goal is to honor all who served in World War II as he strives to secure a Best Historical Album Grammy in 2022.

It is my honor to welcome Jason Burt to the Adventures with Grammy podcast
