Jaycen has recently started playing double bass and is loving it!  The only downside is the loaner bass he has been using to learn on is no longer available and the rental fee is out of our price range.  In order to continue playing, he needs everyones help to buy/rent a bass.  We understand that...

I think it's harder for poor kids today, because the world is more visible. When I was young, back in the previous century, we didn't know we were poor, 'cause everyone else we knew was poor too.

Back then, we had only three or four channels of television that went off the air at midnight, and poor people were normal fare for the few shows we did have. Green Acres. Petticoat Junction. Hee Haw. These days, you see wealth and luxury celebrated all over the entertainment and news media.

Apparently he had Lewy Body Disease

The journal Neurology published a unique and touching paper today: it’s by artist Susan Schneider Williams, the widow of actor Robin Williams, who died by suicide in August 2014. It’s titled The terrorist inside my husband’s brain, the ‘terrorist’ being Lewy Body disease (LBD), the neurodegenerative disorder that, as Schneider Williams recounts, destroyed his life. …

"Stupid fucking poor people. If only we’d been engineer majors in college. If only we’d gone to college. If only our parents hadn’t been poor. If only they spoke English. If only we worked harder. If only we were more like conservatives who believe everything they have today is a direct result from the sweat of their own brow.
When looking at a spider’s web can you point to the 8th spun web, or the 108th? There are those who claim this astounding ability — those who take full credit for crafting, spin by spin, a better life than ours, a life without aid. If you had help paying for college, if someone bought you your first car, if you had health insurance growing up, if your mom never cried over $17, you were lucky. The Hail Mary toss of birth landed you in a family that could put you on a soccer team and buy cleats as your foot grew. And someone was home to help you with your math and give you a gummy vitamin each morning. That’s called aid, by the way. And not all kids get it, but all kids should.
Don’t confuse aid with charity. Charity is old coats. Donating a coat doesn’t make you a good person but I bet it makes you feel like one. You didn’t even want that coat anymore, what you wanted was the closet space. Sure, you could have sold it at a garage sale and made, like, twenty bucks. It was an expensive coat, damn it. But you, with your heart of gold,gave it away. There’s a twinkle in God’s eye just for you.
What makes you a good person to others (and not just to yourself) is the same thing that makes me, or anyone who can afford the occasional $12 cocktail, a good person: Your vote. Not your coat.
Vote for a Living Wage for others. Vote for health insurance for others. Don’t get in the way of food stamps for others. Understand how important $17 might be to others. That poor stretch of Atlanta is quiet because people are working and paying for day care. They’re clocking the same hours you’re clocking, but they make a shit wage"
Please, Mrs. Conservative, don’t yell at our daddy for using food stamps. Also, can we have a cookie?

An expert on the brain-gut axis says your trillions of gut microbes are in constant cross-talk with your brain, and there’s mounting evidence that they may affect how you feel — not just physically but emotionally.
