YourPR was apparently “hacked” this week (as if that’s possible) by two individuals calling themselves MRB and Manny. Although it seems Manny really did most of the “hacking.” Anyway, they overpowered the original broadcast (umm, yeah) and created their own: MRBPR Alpha. An argumentative, ranting, memorializing piece with terrible accents, and other invidious sounds. Overall, a generally unpleasant experience. Worse yet, they’ve threatened to do it again. Enjoy!


What combines religion, state and federal law, terminology, family, children, conservative, liberal and everything in-between opinions into one little ball of twine?

Same-sex marriage – that’s the topic on VanessaPRII…


Now that the economy is in the toilet and people are losing jobs faster than something funny that also happens rapidly, we’re told that it is now a new era of service, volunteering and all that. So, what are you doing?

In this episode of YourPR, Gena and Nick talk about the concept of service and talk to a few people who have found their calling in San Francisco’s web of needs.

This is Mom (aka Kathy Buskirk) on MarriagePR (I’m Sara’s mom and Ned’s mom #2).

Today, I’ll be asking the question, “Why do you think your marriage has lasted?”

I’ll be talking to family and friends who have been married no less than 48 years. I think this is quite an accomplishment, with ½ of all marriages proclaiming, till DIVORCE do we part!

These marriages appear to be standing or have stood, the test of time………..are there any common threads running through these marriages?

“The grass isn’t greener on the other side of the fence. The grass is greener, WHERE it is watered.”

Have a blessed day!


Welcome to BartonCreethPR…

In 1948, my father was sent away from Oakland, California to a boarding school in Vancouver, British Columbia, where he discovered the bat-and-ball game of cricket. Now 71, he reflects on what a lifetime of playing and following cricket has been like for him in a country that understands neither the rules nor the world significance of the sport.

Thanks for listening…

Practical and Subtle Life Skills

We all need hope in these times of seemingly endless suffering, pain, greed, and so much needless health problems.

Welcome to Practical Ways to Higher Health, a path walked by many, but misunderstood by most.

My story was like many. I bottomed out as a young man after a car crash left me with a broken neck. It was my fault, driving like a stunt man, and thinking I could do almost anything. I was arrogant and wreckless.

But as I recovered, I learned about true healing, and what our bodies are capable of. Over the past 20 years, I have seen so many “miracles,” they all seem normal and natural for each of us…

If we open ourselves to our true power, give our bodies the building blocks of proper diet of whole foods, and have a willingness to explore health and what it really is.

In this episode, I will be speaking about my discoveries over the last 20 years, my exploration of consciousness and awareness and how it relates to our health, and offering up the Universal truths of health. I will cover diet, breathing, fun ways to exercise, proper rest and what that is, and offer stories from my clinical practice, from my personal life, and from people who have inspired me.

“The truth is self-evident”

“What we do not digest, digests us”

I am in India, I could say a thousand things but I’m going to stick to two:
India is literally making me crazy and don’t believe anything anyone not from India says about India.
Foreigners are usually here to make money, take advantage or have some sort of manufactured enlightenment.
Don’t listen to me either.
Indians defy generalization, I am equally happy and pissed off most of the time.
This podcast is just a tiny sliver of what life is like here.

Hello, you gorgeous YOURPR.ORG people!

He said.  She said.  Dems said.  Repubs said.  The Presidential Election has been going on a LONG time, and I wanted to see what people thought about the process and what they were (or weren’t) getting out of it.

I have always been fascinated by “man on the street” interviews.  So, I tried to conduct this segment like that.  Granted, these are people I know, but I tried to keep it casual.  Thanks to all of the folks who shared their opinions!

Maybe next time, I’ll branch out and talk to strangers, though I will be directly disobeying what my mother always taught me!  It’s my first attempt at ANYTHING like this, so please keep that in mind.

If you’d like to send comments to Ned about how I could make the next go ’round better, please do so.  Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you, Ned.  I am SO pleased that you asked me to participate on YOURPR!  I had so much fun and I can’t wait for the next creative installment.

Get out there and register to vote!  We are so lucky to live in this beautiful, crazy, wonderful country!  Take care of each other.  Peace.

·        Max Eberle’s portraits are acrylic on canvas and done in the style of pointillism.  After painting the canvas black, he uses white dots (usually in fluorescent paint) to interpret all areas of light from the initial cropped image. Using larger dots (in Martin Luther King piece) gives the work a more impressionist feel, while the smaller dots (in the Einstein piece) give the work a more photorealistic look until viewed very close. Eberle sees art as a way to inspire or remind humanity of the greatness that is our birthright. Below are some Highly Recommended selections of his work:

Black Dog

In this week’s episode of NedPR listen to the story “Black Dog,” based on a real incident, and an interview with the author, Professor Lois Lyles.

“Black dog is the symbol of everything that is unknown and which people therefore fear and hate. A black dog is alluded to in the play by William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus. One of the main characters is referred to as a black dog, because of his ethnicity, his Moorish decent. The black dog is a real dog, but it is also a symbol of everything that is kept outside of our consciousness, because we’ve been taught to fear and hate otherness.” – Professor Lois Lyles, the author

Lyles would like to thank David Field whose personal details helped in creating the background of “Black Dog.”

Music for “Black Dog” written and performed by Jimbob Peltaire.

And Jack Kerouac answering the question: “Why write?”
