How to control Ants

Natural Ant Control - Part 2 - The Ants are Coming, The Ants are Coming! Never Mind they are here! There are many things the summer drought and heat bring to your yard and ants are one of them! Typically, ants are severe enough to control outside. Take away their source water and the ants will do whatever it takes to get the water they need. So it is only natural that they come to your property. They react to the environment. They respond to plants when they are stressed. That is what they do. Stressed plants are their primary food and water source. You cannot kill all the ants. More will come to replace them. This week, I will cover ways to control them in your yard!

What is Ascension Awareness and why should you know?

Lifting into the bliss of Ascension Awareness is a moment of freedom that is yours to claim at any time.  What if EVERYTHING you have experienced was merely a divine “setup” to assist you to remember?  A gift from the universe that is orchestrated to do everything possible so that YOU can THRIVE and ASCEND into your divine nature WHILE STILL CARRYING YOUR BODY!

Imagine the life that is yours to claim through this process that takes you from the vast playground of Spiritual Activism and LIFTS YOU up and through the perceptions that seek to keep you “down”!

Guest Category: 
Guest Occupation: 
Guitarist-Songwriter-Singer
Guest Biography: 

J   O   C   K      B   A   R   T   L   E   Y

GUITARIST-SONGWRITER-SINGER

FOR THE LEGENDARY

F   I   R   E   F   A   L   L

JOCK BARTLEY is known for his melodic, tasteful and fiery lead guitar style, influencing many rock and country rock guitarists.

Born in Hutchinson, Kansas, Jock moved to the mountains above Manitou Spgs., Colo. in 1959. Jock began taking guitar lessons from the jazz guitar legend, JOHNNY SMITH, in Colo. Spgs., calling that five-year relationship “about the best thing that ever happened to me.” He was playing Bach and Duke Ellington by the age of 12 but hearing recordings of Eric Clapton and B.B. King changed his musical focus. After graduating high school, where he’d been an Honor Roll student and top scorer on the basketball team, Jock attended the University of Colorado in Boulder as an art major. “When I had to finally decide what I was going to do with my life – art, music, writing, drama – it was a very easy decision. Playing guitar was the single best thing I did, and most enjoyable.”

Leaving college to pursue music, he joined the Boulder-based band ZEPHYR, replacing Tommy Bolin as lead guitarist (who joined the James Gang and later, Deep Purple before his untimely death in 1977). Months after the “Sunset Ride” album came out, Zephyr broke up. In 1972, Jock was asked to join the touring band of GRAM PARSONS & THE FALLEN ANGELS, featuring EMMY LOU HARRIS. Gram had joined the BYRDS on the ground breaking “Sweetheart of the Radio” album, formed THE FLYING BURRITO BROS. with CHRIS HILLMAN and was a pioneer of the new musical genre, “country rock.” The Fallen Angels tour made many memorable stops from Texas to Boston, including a show in Houston where Neil Young and Linda Ronstadt sat in onstage (Emmy Lou and Linda met that night and sang together for the first time). At Max’s Kansas City in New York City, Jock met Boulder resident, Rick Roberts, who’d replaced Gram in the Burrito Bros. and had two solo albums out.

In 1974, Rick and Jock began jamming in Boulder with MARK ANDES, bassist from the progressive L.A. bands, SPIRIT and JO JO GUNNE. When LARRY BURNETT arrived from Washington D.C., FIREFALL was formed. A few months in, drummer MICHAEL CLARKE (formerly of the Byrds and Flying Burrito Bros.) joined the band. Rick, Mark and Jock were on tour with Chris Hillman on the east coast when Chris became ill – Larry and Michael were flown in and FIREFALL finished the engagement at the Bitter End in NYC, where Atlantic Records came to hear, soon signing them to a long-term recording contract. DAVID MUSE joined the band in rehearsals with producer, JIM MASON. Firefall recorded their first album at Criteria Studios in the winter of 1975, during which his guitar hero, ERIC CLAPTON, was in the control room while Jock played the one-take lead guitar track on ‘Mexico.’ “It was a good thing I didn’t know he was watching, I wouldn’t have been able to hold my pick or play one note.”

Jock has played on stage with artists including Stephen Stills, Neil Young, The Doobie Bros., Dan Folgelberg, Journey, Heart, Poco, John Mayall and many many others. He is a spokesperson for Suicide Prevention, having worked with the American Association of Suicidology and the Kristin Brooks Hope Center to put on benefit concerts to raise awareness, help fund the first national crisis line, (800) SUICIDE) and save lives. He’s also involved with ’causes’ including child abuse, domestic violence, burn victims’ camps, environmental issues and others. Jock is a record producer, travels frequently to Nashville to write songs and give seminars on creativity and songwriting for the Nashville Songwriters Ass. and the Songwriter’s Guild. He endorses Paul Reed Smith Guitars and Takamine Guitars. He has produced an acclaimed instructional songwriting video called ‘The Complete Guide To Songwriting – How To Write A Song.”

Jock has been a painter and fine artist since childhood but only since 2001, has he gotten serious about his ‘new’ art career. His colorful paintings and pastels, in a wide variety of subjects, have begun receiving wide critical and public acclaim. His work has been exhibited in art galleries in Denver and Vail, Colorado and Reno, Nevada with more to come. Perching a few shows featuring ‘Rock & Roll artists,’ his paintings have hung next to John Lennon lithos and paintings by Ron Wood (Rolling Stones), Grace Slick and others. In 2006, four of his Beatles paintings appeared in a nationally released coffee table book, ‘Beatles Art – Fantastic New Artwork of The Fab Four.’ Jock’s paintings and prints were included in the Denver Children’s Hospital benefit “Rockers For Kids” featuring art by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Mellencamp, Jerry Garcia, David Bowie, Ron Wood, Grace Slick, Janis Joplin, R. Crumb and others.

Jock Bartley and Firefall will be on the road again beginning June 9th​ in Norfolk,Virginia at Harborfest.

Guest, Eddie Muller

Guest Name: 
Eddie Muller
Guest Occupation: 
Writer/Producer/Host of Noir Alley
Guest Biography: 

EDDIE MULLER is a second generation San Franciscan, product of a lousy public school education, a couple of crazy years in art school, and too much time in newspaper offices and sporting arenas. No college, but he's compensated by always hanging around smarter people, an effortless feat typically accomplished in bars.

Despite repeated warnings, he followed in his father's footsteps, earning a living as a print journalist for sixteen years. No scoops, no big prizes, but he left behind a thoroughly abused expense account that got him into (and out of) various intriguing parts of the world.

His career as an ink-stained fourth estate wretch sidetracked Muller's early goal of becoming a filmmaker. A stint in George Kuchar's notorious "narrative filmmaking" class at the San Francisco Art Institute in the late 1970s resulted in the creation of a 14-minute, 16mm hommage to Raymond Chandler called Bay City Blues, one of five national finalists for the 1979 Student Academy Award. He also appeared as an actor in several Kuchar movies of the period.

Since 1998 Muller has devoted himself full-time to projects that pique his interest, ranging from the creation of a Historical Boxing Museum, to a fully illustrated history of Adults Only movies, to acting as co-writer and -producer of one of the first completely digital theatrical documentaries, Mau Mau Sex Sex. He created his own graphics firm, St. Francis Studio, which enables him to design, as well as write, his non-fiction books. He has achieved much acclaim for his three books on film noir, earning the nickname "The Czar of Noir."

His father, the original Eddie Muller (he's not a junior— long story, don't ask), was a renown sportswriter for the San Francisco Examiner who earned the nickname "Mr. Boxing" during his 52-year run. The senior Muller served as inspiration for the character of Billy Nichols, the protagonist of the younger Muller's two critically acclaimed novels, The Distance (2002) and Shadow Boxer (2003).

Eddie lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, Kathleen Maria Milne.

Guest Biography: 

R  U  P  E  R  T    H  O  L  M  E  S

FROM A CLASSIC HIT

"ESCAPE (THE PIÑA COLADA SONG)"

TO A 21ST CENTURY RENAISSANCE MAN

Called “an American treasure” by the Los Angeles Times, “brilliant” by the London Times, “a comic genius” by Kirkus Reviews and “a true Renaissance man” by Newsweek, CBS Sunday Morning, Playbill magazine and scores of other publications and websites…mystery novelist-playwright-composer-arranger-screenwriter-conductor-singer-songwriter Rupert Holmes is the first person in theatrical history to solely win Tony® awards as an author, a composer and a lyricist. His second Random House novel, Swing, reached #24 among all books at Amazon, and was the first novel to come with an original CD musical score. His short stories have been anthologized in such prestigious collections as Best American Mystery Stories and On a Raven’s Wing.

In December of 2014, ASCAP presented Rupert Holmes with its prestigious “George M. Cohan Award” acknowledging the diversity and depth of his career as a composer, lyricist, playwright, and novelist.

For TV, Holmes created, wrote and scored all four seasons of the critically hailed AMC series “Remember WENN,” commemorated on its tenth anniversary by a cover piece in the Arts & Leisure section of The New York Times.

He has arranged, conducted and written platinum recordings for Barbra Streisand, including her classic Lazy Afternoon album and his songs for the Golden Globe-winning, quadruple Platinum Billboard #1 LP score of A Star is Born. As a pop tunesmith, his work has been recorded by the leading vocalists of our time, from opera star Renée Fleming to pop star Britney Spears, from balladeer Barry Manilow to rapper Wyclef.  Yet despite all the above, Holmes is still best known to the public as the singer-songwriter of several Billboard Top Ten hits, including his #1  multi‑platinum smash “Escape” aka “The Pina Colada Song”…heard in such recent films as Guardians of the Galaxy, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Grownups, Bewitched, Wanted with Angelina Jolie, The Sweetest Thing, Shrek, the TV shows “Las Vegas,” “True Blood,” and most recently performed by Jimmy Fallon and Blake Shelton with The Legendary Roots.

In the mid-seventies, while recording three new albums (the eponymous Rupert Holmes, Singles, and Pursuit of Happiness) Holmes also produced recordings by several major British rock bands, “in part to catch all the plays and musicals running in London’s West End each season,” he admits. The results of this were two major U.K. pop hits of 1976: “A Glass of Champagne” (with Holmes playing its trademark piano riff) and “Girls, Girls, Girls” (a “Benny Hill” standard) both performed by the band Sailor and co‑produced with Emmy award-winning Jeffrey Lesser.

Holmes went on to arrange and produce the talented Brit rocker John Miles, resulting in the albums Stranger in the City and Zaragon and the single “Slow Down” a #2 dance hit on the US Billbard Disco charts featuring a memorable orchestration by Holmes. Other acts in Holmes’ producing repertoire at this time were the glam-rock band Sparks, the classic art rock band Strawbs and British pop singer-songwriter Lynsey de Paul.

In 1979 and 1980, with the release of his fifth album Partners in Crime (RIAA certified platinum), Holmes at last topped the Billboard charts as a singer, songwriter, arranger and producer with his now-iconic hit “Escape (The Pina Colada Song),” which went to number one in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan.  Holmes followed “Escape” with the Billboard #6 single “Him” and also penned the ballad “You Got It All Over Him” for The Jets, a record which simultaneously topped Billboard’s Top 40, R&B and Adult-Contemporary charts in the number 1, 2 and 3 slots.

In 2015, he performed for at the Library of Congress in concert with Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen, Natalie Merchant, rapper Ne-Yo and John Legend.

With the new millennium, Holmes added novel writing to his repertoire. His critically-acclaimed mystery, Where the Truth Lies, was a Booklist Top Ten Debut Novel; his second, Swing, was a San Francisco Chronicle Top Ten Best Seller, called “imaginative, smart, sophisticated and impressively elaborate” by Janet Maslin of the New York Times. His short stories have been anthologized in such prestigious collections as Best American Mystery Stories, On a Raven’s Wing, A Merry Band of Murderers and Christmas at the Mysterious Bookshop. He was also commissioned by The New York Times to write the Arts and Leisure tribute celebrating the one hundredth birthday of Irving Berlin. Holmes is currently finishing the first entry in a new fictional mystery series for Simon and Schuster.

Holmes is currently completing the first book in a new series for Simon and Schuster: The McMasters Guide to Homicide: Murder Your Employer Linda Hodges
