At Paula Dean's Place

She had me at, "Hello, I'm Esther. Welcome to Lady & Sons and here are your hoe cakes and cheese biscuits."

New Elements On tigerbrooks.com

In the left column, you will notice a couple of new elements to tigerbrooks.com. First, I have added a widget for TwitVids. These are random videos of me talking about things that need to be talked about or just interesting things captured on my BlackBerry Storm.

Further down, I have added the Community Focus broadcasts that I record for 88.3 WCQR. Each week we highlight local ministries and organizations making a difference in our community and the Kingdom of God (those are one in the same.) These will soon be available through podcast from the station website- http://www.wcqr.org

Right now you can here my interviews with Tom Elam and David Wilson at Bristol's Raceway Ministries, Claudia Byrd with Speedway Children's Charities, and Rhonda Chafin with Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee.

Just got my new Toms Shoes. Read on.

Are they the best looking, most comfortable shoes I have ever owned? Hardly. Ellie commented that she liked my new slippers. I thought long and hard about spending money on these shoes, and I decided to go for it. Why? Because I want to support a company that has the goal of impacting the world in a positive way. For every pair of Toms shoes that is purchased, a pair is given to a child somewhere in the world who does not have shoes. To date, Toms Shoes has given over 200,000 pairs of shoes to children around the world. They have a goal of giving out 300,000 pairs in 2009 alone. I have been too many places and have seen too many children who did not have their very basic needs met. I have left many pairs of shoes myself, however, the places I have visited have not had too many people, especially children, who could wear my 13's.
So while I know I will endure much heckling from my East Tennessee brethren and can imagine picking up a new moniker- like "Hop Sing" (of Bonanza fame)- I will wear these bad boys and know that somewhere a child is wearing some just like them and her feet are protected from the elements.
