Learning Calligraphy (0:04:20) Do you love going out of your way to make your handwriting look prim and proper? Or maybe you simply appreciate the beauty of a good-looking letter every once and a while. Wherever you fall between these two scenarios, chances are you’ve probably considered learning modern calligraphy at some point. Calligraphy has the power to take nearly any word in the English language and make it a beautiful centerpiece worthy of attention. Joining us today is Becca Courtice, a calligraphy teacher and founder of the YouTube channel “The Happily Ever Crafter”. We’ll be discussing the beauty of modern calligraphy and how you can get started learning, too. Nigerian America (0:19:47) The black immigrant population has risen 137 percent from 2000 to 2013 with about 2 million black immigrants entering the country every year on average. 327 thousand of those immigrants are from Nigeria, making up the majority of the black immigrant population. These African immigrants don’t necessarily experience the same kind of racism as American born people of color. Here to discuss his experience with race in America is Macmillan Agbonavbare. He was born in Nigeria and moved to the US about 4 years ago with plans to eventually gain citizenship. Family Staycations (0:35:52) Some of my favorite childhood memories are from family trips we took as a kid. And while I didn’t always remember the place, I do remember the time spent with my family. And now that I’m a parent, I wonder “why not just focus on that part?” and take stay-cations instead? It includes all the fun family time with half the stress and expense. That’s we asked friend of the show Carrie Ann Rhodes to talk with us about stay-cations and how to get the most out of yours! Boosting Your Immune System (0:56:28) Nothing is better at protecting us then our own bodies. Our immune systems are incredible at fighting any infection or virus that tries to attack us. But, if we don’t take care of our bodies, our immune system becomes weak and we become more prone to illness and disease. So, what can we do to boost our immune systems? This is especially important as we continue to deal with a worldwide pandemic and prepare to send our kids back to school. So, we invited pediatrician and friend of the show Dr. Weston Spencer on the show to share his tips! Back to School Haircuts (1:12:43) During the summer our kids run wild and grow their locks out. But almost every family emphasizes the importance of getting a back to school haircut each year. It’s time to clean up our kids’ looks so they look sharp for those back to school pictures that’ll be memorialized in yearbooks forever. But as COVID continues to exist, you might be considering cutting your own kid’s hair. So we invited hairstylist and mom, Jerilyn Anderson on the show to give us some advice on cutting hair at home. Getting Rusty with Age (1:28:39) Now when we talk about health and anti-aging products or methods, the conversation tends to center on the outside of our bodies, rather than what is happening within. We sometimes forget that the outside is a manifestation of what is going on inside. Well today, we are speaking with a health and nutrition expert, Dr. Jonny Bowden, about ways to improve our health and prevent “rusting within” by lessening something called free radical damage.
