I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge believer in signs.  Some might call it intuition, others might call it instincts, but, I believe that at times, God sends me signals of things I need to watch out for, or even things I might need to pause and ponder. After the huge response to …

If You Turn Away From This, What Does It Say About You? #RRBC #RWISA @nonniejules @BravoTV

A MUST SEE! Friends, we are living through some very difficult times.  To me, it almost feels as if we’re all in this boiling pot and at any given moment, we’re all going to just boil right over.  Systemic racism is a real thing and it’s clear by the marches and peaceful protests that are …

Kelly Vs. Hughley…Rudeness Rules Our World #RRBC

“Rudeness is the weak person’s imitation of strength.” *** I have come to the realization that I am a very strong advocate for Social Justice, which would probably pit me against, or make me a strong opponent of Social Injustice.  Agreed?  OK.
