Adopt a Soldier

Hello everyone! With the holidays approaching fast, I would like you help spread the "Holiday Spirit!"

My sisters is serving in the United States Navy. She was recently stationed at the Naval Air Base on Whidbey Island in Washington state. The base is in a very isolated area north of Seattle. Melissa and her shipmates (airmen) won't have the opportunity to return home for the holidays this year. There is also a high probability that here will have to serve time in Iraq in the future.

To thank my sister and the rest of the men and women serving on her base an in her squadron, could you please write a note of thanks, send a holiday card or maybe a little gift. Anything would be appreciated.

I sent my first care package this week. Melissa has told me that she and others are fans of the following:

Apple Chips
Banana Chips
Any type of dried fruit
Chewing Gum
Crossword puzzles
Word Find books
Pistachios and other nuts
Towels and washcloths (navy issued ones are rough and not soft)

P.S. - Melissa is a HUGE animal lover, especially dogs and horses. If you have any questions about either write her a question. She managed a Animal Resort before joining the military. If you have photos or books, she'd love those too.

Please write when you can. Letters, cards and post cards make a big difference when you're far away from home.

For more information on the base click this link. Whidbey Island Naval Air Station

Here is the mailing address for my sister and her fellow service men and women

Melissa Kitchen
Barracks 8
3665 North Princeton Street
Oak Harbor, WA 98278

Thank you in advance,

Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day. A time to remember all of the men and women who served or are serving in our armed forces to protect our freedoms. I've had my father, uncles, aunts and cousins serve in the military. Now my sister is serving in the Navy.

If you see anyone serving in the military today or in the future, be sure to say thank you, not just today but everyday.

Thank you!

New Programs!

Exciting News! I have a new website, programs and shows!

My new website should be up and running in less than two weeks. Testing out the bugs before the launch. I'll post the address soon

I have written three new programs with my friend Rodger Campbell as a part of our BAD BAD APPLES programs.

I've also added new shows for my solo performances.

Here are the descriptions of the new programs:

Performed with Rodger Campbell as the "BAD BAD APPLES"

“I’m more than a Check BOX!” – Celebrating the truth of Uniqueness.”
(Diversity Program)

Every day we use labels created to help us understand one another; to explain ourselves; to identify our backgrounds, and to organize data. Do labels really define who we are? Do they determine what we can become? Does a predetermined “BOX” on an application define us? No! We are defined by the Legacies we create. This humorous and eye opening two-man show will challenge participants to rise above the labels and stereotypes; identify what creates negative self-attitudes; and discover the steps to needed to celebrate a life full of infinite possibilities. Join the BAD BAD Apples and discover how your beliefs, actions and determination can produce people who make history versus becoming history.

“Champions of the Game!” The People who Broke through and Rose above the Color Line!”

(Black History Month Program)

For centuries being Black in America has been negative and positive. More positives exist today than ever before. These positives exist because champions of the game accepted the challenge of making their dreams into reality. As African-Americans, the BAD BAD Apples use their own special “flava” to dissect and discuss the journey taken by the champions of the game. Come discover how champions make history and don’t become history!

“The TRUTH will set you free!” Breaking through and Rising above the Color Line!”

(Black History Month Program)

For centuries, Africans were enslaved in the Americas. TRUE! Being Black in America has been difficult. TRUE! History determines our legacy. TRUE! We (Blacks/ African Americans) will always be trapped by the color line. TRUE??? The challenge of African Americans today is to rediscover the truth of our people. Using their own special “flava,” the BAD BAD Apples will take audiences on a journey that will show there are more opportunities to “Rise Above” today than ever before. They have developed a playbook that will help people of color develop a winning strategy for this game called life. In order to “Break Through” the color line, we must know who we are, we must know the game, and we must know the Truth. Come discover the power in creating history not just becoming it.

New Solo Programs
