A Local Hero

Hey everyone!  Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving!  I spent mine in Disney World with my husband and son. It was magical as always, if a little quiet without our two traveling older kids.  But we did adult-style with fine dining, massages and spa time.  Of course, we did connect with our inner children with fireworks, junk food, pin collecting and funny hats. 

This past week I had the honor of speaking to someone who is a familiar voice in Nashville.  In fact, the interview was so good I devoted the entire show to it.  Hoss Burns, retired DJ and now AIDS Spokesman, told his story in honor of World AIDS Day on December 1st.  He is being honored by Vanderbilt’s Institute for Global Health in a multi-media presentation at the Blair School of Music.  I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with Hoss and look forward to so many more.  He’s a cool cat who’s fighting the good fight.  Listen to him tell his own story now!    

Earlier this month, I talked to the curator of art at Cheekwood about a fab new exhibit they have about the history of the American West.  Jochan Weirich told me about the show brought to us by the Bill Cody Historical Center in South Dakota.  The exhibit is chock full of art and artifacts you do not want to miss.  Check out what Jochan has to say!  

And finally, November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.  There are so many myths and misconceptions about this disease.  The mysteries of the human brain are frustrating and confusing to most of us.  I spoke to Mark Underwood, a neuroscience researcher and President of Quincy Biosciences to get the facts.  He also shares some breakthrough research and treatment options.  Listen up!  

Well, everyone, that’s about it for this week.  It’s a busy time for all of us, so make sure and take some “me” time for yourself each day.  Relax and enjoy!  Ciao, darlings.
