    “Crazy Rich Asians” Is a Must-Read!

    Crazy Rich Asians, the first in a trilogy (which includes China Rich Girlfriend and Rich People Problems), is a modern-day novel that takes a look at a group that is rarely covered in America—wealthy Asians. It leads our culture list, which I have compiled because each of these entries will give you a deep look […] More

    “The Hate U Give” Leads The Way!

    I received this email from a listener of my SiriusXM’s Urban View show: “I was very happy to see the trailer for the movie, The Hate U Give, when I went to the movies over the weekend. I bought the book for my 11-year-old niece last year after hearing about it on your show. She got […] More

    Day 30

    When I started this journey 30 days ago, I was confident that I could lose the 20 pounds. I had a great plan and I set myself up to win (making sure I had plenty of fruit and almonds and good food at my disposal). The exercise alone, with the 10,000-step minimum, I just knew […] More

    Day 29

    I rode my bike to the post office and as I was leaving, I was waved down by this elderly man. I made a U-turn and came back. “Can you help me across the street,” he asked. He had walked over from the senior citizen’s building and couldn’t make it back. I got off my […] More

    Day 28

    Working out everyday, I have been sweating more (that, and it has been 90-degrees a lot). I’m doing a more laundry over these last 28 days and I have also discovered a new hair product. It’s not new, just new to me. Miss Jessie’s Honey Curls. I don’t have wash-and-wear hair. It looks great when […] More

    Days 26 and 27

    I have a friend who has a dog, a miniature pinscher. The normal lifespan for this breed is 15 years. This dog will be 21 in the fall and doesn’t seem like she’s going anywhere. She has cataracts, which she has had for more than five years and can’t see well. But everyday she walks […] More

    Day 25

    I got up early and rode my bike five miles. Being on the streets, you get to see all of the people walking, jogging, running. There were a few out biking like me and some at the tennis courts at the park near my home. It was nice seeing people moving their bodies and I […] More

    Day 19

    When I was 23, I lost 45 pounds. It was the second time I had lost major weight in my life. When I was 16, I went from 240 pounds down to 180. That didn’t last very long. My mother kept asking me if I was sick. I guess she didn’t notice that I was […] More

    Days 12 and 13

    Fat cells are a lot like a woman’s eggs. You have the exact amount of eggs you have for the rest of your life (or until you stop ovulating). If you have a baby at 40, that’s a 40-year-old egg you just fertilized. And the fat cells you have in your body, you’ve had since […] More

    This Is America!

    I don’t remember what spurred me to pick up The Half Has Never Been Told, but once I did I could not put it down. I went through about 100 tabs, marking passages. It seemed as if every page had a note or a nugget that I didn’t want to forget, that I needed to […] More
