  • Girl of the Finger Lakes - Pt.1 Life on the Farm -Depression Era Documentary


    Part Two is here:
    The joyful life story of a depression era girl from Western New York. A unique part of Americana that reminds us all of the great bounty in this land of ours.
    A wonderful collection of photos and film that give us a good sense of what life on a Depression-era farm could be like -- no electricity, no indoor plumbing, a wood stove for heating the house, and going off to a one-room schoolhouse every day -- but it isn't a grim picture because the warmth and happiness of the family is very apparent.
    What ties the film together so well are the segments of interviews with Kitty Puls, the girl of the title. She is a bright, witty woman whose anecdotes are entertaining and often very touching. There is never a sense of the talking head type of interview that can make some documentaries dry and not engaging. The skilled editing and brisk pace as well as excellent choice of music makes this visit with the girl of the Finger Lakes a trip the viewer is glad to take.

    This is how we cooked and ate during the Depression. I was always fortunate enough to have great tasting food. This is a low cost alternative to most meat meals. It is not common today to have fried bologna, but it was one of the favorites in the 1930s and early 1940s in the US. Thanks for watching.

    Samin’s Wild Idea: To share the power of food with the world and inspire everyone to get in the kitchen and cook with confidence using salt, fat, acid and heat.

    If you have been anywhere on the internet lately, you’ve probably seen something about Netflix’s new series, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. The show follows today’s guest, Samin Nosrat, around the world as she teaches the importance of cooking with each of these four elements. On the show, she travels from Italy to Japan to Mexico and back to Berkeley, California working with internationally known foodies to discover how things like miso, soy sauce, corn tortillas and parmesan cheese are made. The whole series is beautifully documented, and she makes cooking and eating accessible and fun for everyone.

    Samin’s cookbook of the same name came out just a year ago, and it quickly became a New York Times bestseller and won a James Beard Award (which is like an Oscar of the food world). She has been cooking since 2000, when she started working in the kitchen at the world-renowned Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California and has been called the next Julia Child by NPR’s All Things Considered.

    I actually know Samin from high school where we were on the same cross-country running team. I remember her being very nurturing, making cookies to share and always bringing people together. As the daughter of immigrant parents, food has always been an important part of her life and identity. She didn’t always feel like she fit in, which taught her some important life lessons about failure and self-acceptance. It was a joy to talk to her about her success and her journey. We get into her upbringing, her mother’s cooking and the impact our cross-country coach had on her life. She also talks about how author Michael Pollan became her mentor and the work that went into creating her Netflix series. Plus Samin shares a few tips on how to make your Thanksgiving or holiday meal the best one yet. Listen to this one through to the end.

    Listen to this episode if:
    You love to cook or want to learn how.
    You love to eat and are passionate about food.
    You are an immigrant or come from an immigrant family.
    You need some inspiration to be persistent and go after your goals.
    You want to hear from one joyful storyteller.


    3:30 - What Samin loved about our high school cross-country running team.
    5:50 - How being on the cross-country team impacted her upbringing.
    13:00 - Being part of an immigrant family and the role food played in her life.
    18:30 - Samin’s first time at a world-class restaurant, Chez Panisse.
    22:45 - How she got a job bussing tables at Chez Panisse.
    25:10 - How hard work pays off.
    26:30 - Why she is more willing to fail and make mistakes.
    29:00 - How she thought about her insecurities while making the show.
    35:40 - How she met Michael Pollan and the influence he had on her career.
    41:30 - The creation of the Netflix series Salt Fat Acid Heat.

Even with a balanced diet, it can be difficult to cover all of your nutritional bases and this is where Athletic Greens can help. Their daily drink is essentially nutritional insurance for your body and it's delivered straight to your door every month. It's developed from a complex blend of 75 minerals, vitamins, and whole-food ingredients. It's a greens powder that's engineered to fill the nutritional gaps in your diet. Their daily drink improves your everyday performance by addressing the four pillars of health, energy, recovery, gut health, and immune support.

And here's how I used it and still use it. When I started losing weight, I was eating a lot more protein, and it became hard to get enough greens and vegetables in because it was hard to actually eat enough volume of food. I was full. So I was able to use Athletic Greens to meet my veggie and nutritional needs, even if I was full and just didn't feel like eating extra. It's basically like a multivitamin, but it's actually head and shoulders above

  • Jack Albins Orch.: Happy Days Are Here Again, 1930


    Hotel Pennsylvania Music was the Jack Albin Orchestra which had a long term engagement at New York City's Hotel Pennsylvania during the early 1930s. Their voicalist was very often Bill Coty. Later in the decade, the hotel's phone number would be immortalized in song by another resident band, the Glenn Miller Orchestra with its hit Pennsylvania 6-5000. Happily, the Hotel Pennsylvania still stands and operates as a hotel - though its once grand lobby suffers from a rather tacky modernization.

    In 1929, as part of their score for an early talkie called „Chasing Rainbows, Jack Yellen and Milton Ager wrote Happy Days Are Here Again to be sung by a group of American doughboys upon receiving news of the armistice. Before the film was released - on the night of 29th October 1929 (the day also known as Black Tuesday, on which the stock market crashed, plunging America into the Great Depression) - the writers took the music to George Olsen, then leading his dance orchestra at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York. As the vocalist sang, the dispirited diners, according to Yellen, stopped what they were doing and joined in sardonically, hysterically, like doomed prisoners on their way to the firing squad. The song was quickly picked up as a genuine rallying cry of the Depression years and, in 1932, became the official theme of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's victorious campaign for the Presidency.

  • Dust Storms


    Dust Storms is a true story about my Grandfather. It is part of the album I am currently working on about real-life stories about Oklahomans throughout history. When my grandfather was 12 his Mom and Dad left him and his sister. He ended up living with his Aunt Della in the attic. It was a couple years after the great depression and in the years of the dust storms. I wrote this song to give some humanity to the story. Find more at

    Dust Storms Lyrics

    I got up from my bed with my sister still asleep
    Maybe Mom was cooking breakfast, we hadn't much to eat
    Calling out to her, she did not answer
    Every sign of Dad was gone, even the morning paper

    Did the dust storms carry them away?
    From our home here in the Oklahoma plains.
    Was it something I did or I did not say.
    Did they not love me enough to stay?

    So we walked to Aunt Della's on the other side of town.
    An attic became my room and Mom and Dad could not be found
    The grownups would talk while they thought we were asleep
    So I stayed really quiet so they could not hear a peep.
    They said something about a market crash.
    I don't know what that means I just wish they'd come back.

    Did the dust storms carry them away?
    From our home here in the Oklahoma plains
    Was it something I did or I did not say.
    Did they not love us enough to stay?

    A blanket of stars wraps around me tonight
    I wish it were my Mom, holding me tight.

    Did the dust storms carry them away?
    From our home here in the Oklahoma plains.
    Was it something I did or I did not say?
    I know I'd love me enough to stay.
