Screen Shot 2014-08-31 at 2.58.14 PMSam “Sonny” Bryant Jr. is a rarity.  He is a champion bodybuilder, and at the ripe old age of 71, he is still going strong.

“I just keep competing,” Bryant said at the I’m The Biggest Winner Family Health & Fitness Expo in Austell, Georgia. “I love it. It’s a lifestyle.”

With a body that puts most men half his age to shame, Bryant’s rippling physique is testimony to years-long hard work and dedicated commitment.

He works out twice a day alongside a full time, overnight job.  “I’ve got a room full of trophies,” said Bryant, who was invited to the Expo as part of a roster of quality experts and motivational speakers. “I can’t even count them all.”

Some breads from my kitchen

I have been baking quite a lot of breads in my kitchen since last couple of months. 1-3 loaves a month. Well that’s not too much but then it is delightful. When your upper arms start hurting after all the kneading, it doesn’t give you pain, it gives you an immense sense of pleasure. That sink full of bowls and counter to scrub..all is taken in easily without a single crib since I know that my home is going to smell divine soon.

I have been experimenting quite a bit with no particular recipe in hand. Just add, mix, flavor and bake. I am no way close to being a perfectionist but I want to be one day. Those baguettes, ciabattas, puglese, boules attract me everytime I visit a bakery. I look at them like an admirer would look at a gorgeous painting and tell myself…one day…one day…I will roll…

Ferguson Police Department Officer, and State Representative are Two Behind Donation Site for Darren Wilson


Originally posted on Blackbutterfly7:

LA Times reports that two GoFundMe pages were setup to receive money for Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. Darren Wilson was identified by the Ferguson Chief of Police as the officer who killed 18-year old Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO on August 9, 2014.

The two separate pages were titled “Support Officer Darren Wilson” that raised $235,750, and “Support Officer Wilson” that raised $197,620.

Because of racially offensive remarks in the comment section of one of the pages, Gofundme removed them.

On Saturday, August 30, 2014, both donation pages stopped taking donations around the same time. The pages’ organizers did not explain why. Kelsea Little, a spokesperson for GoFundMe, stated that the pages were not shutdown by GoFundMe. A Facebook Page titled “Support Officer Wilson” posted that lawyers were working on a solution as to why the GoFundMe page was shut down. Thus, there is controversy about how and why…

Sunday Suppers: So Long Summer

Labor Day weekend might be the symbolic end of summer, but we expect to be sweating for the next few weeks. Still we can pretend that the pool and grill will soon be covered, that leaves are ready to fall and the kids are about to break in new jeans. (Of course our house lacks kids and a pool — both seem like a lot of work!) Instead we’ll just scrounge for more tomatoes in the garden and wait for the next giant AC bill. Here’s a great end-of-summer meal for the rest of you. Write and let us know what fall feels like.

Happy Labor Day

We can’t think of a more American holiday than Labor Day. (OK, except the Fourth and St. Patty’s Day!) So we picked our favorite all-American ingredient — bourbon to celebrate. (We know the fries don’t include bourbon, but if you really want just pour a shot for dipping.)

Happy Labor Day to you all state siders and happy Monday to the rest of you.
