Women often don't know the symptoms of a heart attack or stroke for themselves, even as they could list them symptoms for men! It's because we don't realize how many women are affected by heart attack and strokes in relati...

WHY AM IN ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO BUY A HOME RIGHT NOW? When we moved her nine years ago we were able to get a really good deal on our house because the market was good, but not sizzling. We've seen what has happened since, largely driven by our booming population and insanely low interest rates. Now our growth has slowed dramatically an interest rates have risen and many, many people are working under the illusion that mortgage ...

AN UPDATE ON THE RIGHT TO REPAIR FARM EQUIPMENT I talked about this last week because the Colorado Legislature is considering passing a Right to Repair bill for farm equipment after farmers say they can't get service for their very expensive equipment because the "authorized dealers" simply can't keep up with the needed repairs. I've got the VP if the Illinois Farm Bureau Brian Duncan on at 1 with an update of a...

IT'S NOT THE GUNS, OR RACE, IT'S THE VIOLENCE What happened to Tyre Nichols is horrific. If you haven't watched the video I think you should, although it is very, very hard to watch. You can see it here. The beating is shown best at the 51 minute mark and it's horrible. Four cops beating a man with handcuffs on like it's a sport. I hate to say it like this but thankfully these cops were black, or we'd have a...
