This past week, Luke cranked out 25 pounds of bratwurst sausage. In today's show, Luke will walk you through the process of making bratwurst at home, step by step. Rather than buy bulk sausage seasonings, Luke much prefers using a "Kit" that contains the seasonings and casings.

Luke recently spent the day with Chuck Roy (left), editor of The Community Chronicle, and discussed the Patriot Sporting Challenge, which is a fun event held at Lake Fork each October that brought in $100,000 dollars last year for the Folds Of Honor, benefiting the families of fallen veterans. In today's show, Chuck goes into detail explaining the Sporting Challenge and the upcoming Yantis Catfish Classic to be held this May 5-6.

Fear of speaking. It’s actually true that it’s a bigger fear for people than flying, bugs, and even death.

For this episode of my podcast, Convo, I spoke with Eileen Sinett, a speech coach and owner of Speaking That Connects, in New Jersey.

"Promise Kept" by Chuck Roy

Some artists from Texas take the obvious blacktop roads and make country music with the typical Lone Star buzzwords, like bluebonnets and longhorns. Others, like Red Shahan, prefer to ride the Texas dirt roads and blend in some rock, Americana and blues with their country while touching on the grittier side of life in Texas.

Does the country life appeal to you? You’re not alone.

Except that you might quickly become so.
