Been away for a while folks and I’m only stopping by but I just wanted to say hello and hope all is well. Work has been hectic, but fun, because of the new Farm Bill and the conferences and meetings I’ve been attending of late. Had a chance to get down to Pine Bluff yesterday as a result of the Rural Life Conference and I must say I loved it! I learned so much in the sessions and even saw my old professors and colleagues from the agriculture department there at UAPB. It was great seeing them. Anyway, I’m just about done with fixing up my apartment and I am slowly but surely switching my focus to planning this trip to D.C. for our Centennial celebration this summer. $2000 should be enough for the week. Well I have to get ready for a baby shower today. One of my good friends is expecting a baby and soon will be married *tears* lol. We aging too much. Take care and as soon as I get the internet up in my place I will be back to my regular posts. Peace. Life’s A Beach
I drink to paradise
and the lie of love.
Back in Searcy for the night to get a good meal, but turns out my mom didn’t cook. Again. Smh, I mean you don’t have to cook all the time but damn can I get a stir fry or a light cooked sandwich at least. It’s all good I’ll find something around here. Can’t believe my body is sore like it is, I was cleaning for about 6 hours straight last night in my apartment. I can’t stay in an unclean home so yea I may be kindav a neat freak. Lol, it’s not that bad I promise. But tomorrow I’ll sleep there and hopefully get some more work done like putting up my paintings, pictures, curtains, etc. One thing at a time. Anyway had to head to Memphis today for work and I’m glad I sat through the traffic, construction, and computer bugs today because I got to meet a good friend of mine in downtown M-town and had a good lunch. Never been to Huey’s but I swear that is the best sandwich I have ever had. I’m proud of my friend because after we graduated together she has obtained a job at a private security firm that does detail for high profile clients. She is a payroll specialist and may even get paid more than me. More power to her. Haha. It makes me happy to see people I’ve known over the years doing good. Well I’m done typing. This was a random moment I know sorry. I’m going to get on skype for a bit and hit the bed. Life’s A Beach
I swear people love my name or something, cuz I’m hearing this same rumor again from the Yard about me. Whoever you are if I did you any type of wrong or whatever I apologize. But that still doesn’t give you the right to try to drag my name through the mud. That is some petty shit really, and if you really dislike me that much then come talk to me about it like a true man or woman. If you are not going to do that then shut the fuck up and sit down, just saying. I must be doing something right tho for my name to still be in people’s mouth’s even after I leave. Sorry haters but I’m eatin. #LaughingToTheBank
On vacations: We hit the sunny beaches where we occupy ourselves keeping the sun off our skin, the saltwater off our bodies, and the sand out of our belongings.
We would like to wish our revolutionary ancestor Huey P. Newton a Happy Birthday, who was born on February 17., 1942. He was a powerful warrior in the struggle against racism, capitalism, and imperialism during the 1960s and 1970s.
Without his leadership in creating and developing the Black Panther Party for Self Defense, many of us would not have the opportunities we have today, such as the Women Infant and Children (WIC) program, free school breakfast, Black Studies, and many more contributions for oppressed people to rise up and finally control our society for the advancement of our people and the world.
Watch this video of a huge rally of more than 5,000 people on his birthday, February 17, 1968, organized by Bobby Seale and the Black Panther Party for Self Defense to support the movement to Free Huey from prison.

ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE!
