SPRING CLEANING: YOUR BODY AND SPIRIT
After winter hibernation, nature starts to move again in spring; spring is a time of renewal and freshness. Your body is programmed by evolution to sense the awakening of spring. In short, you are set [by default] to feel renewed and at the same time to bring renewal to your body... You spring clean your house - so why not do the same for your body?
But here, Spring Cleaning your body isn't about cleaning with water and soap - on the outside, it's more! Oftentimes people hear about cleansing your body, they immediately think of food-wise; this is true, but not the only way it takes to cleanse your body. Your body requires movement, perhaps in the form of exercise; some form of light energy such as sunlight, and water. We depend on our body to do so much for us, and it depends on us to take care of it.
If you have been feeling weighed down or less shiny than you would like, now is the time for a little spring tune-up.
Now that the outside is recognized, and hopefully taken care of - it's time to focus on the inside of the body. READ MORE!

A SPECIAL CONTRIBUTION 2 ROYAL-TALK!!!...
BLACK HISTORY = WORLD History:
Can you just imagine it now, the future BHMs, stories from memories being told by our children from today. The horrific way Dreams of yesteryear BHM icons withered before their eyes, in events such as the ones a Nation is watching as well - at this very moment - in time..?
The Black History of the city of Flint, Michigan goes as far back as 1966, despite [auto industry] discrimination, the Flint City Council selected Floyd McCree as mayor, making him one of the first African American mayors of a large city - according to facts.
Those same facts also include Flint's Black History lasting well into the years to come, since the city diversified as a whole, and by the 1990s African Americans formed a plurality of the population, and a majority by the 2000 census.
With facts such as this, it causes a strange "Hmmm"; a city that has held strong Black History in a positive light, fall to a city of officials who have no common welfare for their constituients? Who dropped the ball, and when? This is a sad account for the children - their futures have been destroyed by this crisis, and all other events of tragedy our Nation has endured. But the keyword here is: ENDURED. A nation endured, but will the children of Flint, MI have that opportunity? Those that do - WE PRAY.
The outpour of assistance is a great thing, in so many ways. Thanks is definitely in the air, and hearts of so many Flint residents and families. But, don't be deterred, nor air-headed by the corruption of city officials and/or the hype of doing so for reward [recognition]. This is a serious matter. A life/death matter.
Many that travelled to Flint, returned with a humbled outlook. People, things are bad - everywhere. But, to witness how someone else is being victimized - unknowingly, it touches you to a point of humility.
On behalf of a family member, loved one, previous resident of Flint, MI a huge THANKS to all who have helped - in ANY manner! A special THANKS to UAW Local 1700 for their time, consideration, and kindness!

When one begins to purposefully
perform acts of kindness, the spirit
changes and soon doing good deeds
becomes a focal point for our life;
doing good begins to be the same
as feeling good. The periods of emptiness
when we search for the "meaning of it all"
begin to fill with acts of kindness.
No kind action ever stops with itself.
One kind action leads to another.
Good example is followed.
A single act of kindness throws out
roots in all directions, and the roots
spring up and make new trees.
The greatest work that kindness
does to others is that it makes
them kind themselves.
Much love and many sent to your heart spirit and soul my friend

Reccession and CHILDREN....R U Talking to Them About It?
Ranya E. Snowden as RONYAE, Special to Royal-Talk!
With the crashing of Wall Street, Banks and Mortgage Foreclosures, and of course the entire Financial Crisis America is in, we all are in a rut. And whether or not you are actually being touched by all of this, it is trickling down to our children; But, are you discussing this with them? Are you telling them that Mommy and/or Daddy is just "BROKE"?
See, this year will be a bit different for our young imaginaries; there will be a shortage of living spaces, education opportunities, spruce shopping...the list goes on. And all of this is and will truly affect our youth and their future endeavors. How will Little Johnny become that entreprenuer, when his parents aren't able to send him to college?...Think About It! Your cildren may just understand this crisis more than you give them credit for!
New Program Announced from Big Brothers Big Sisters
Men are needed to be "Sports Buddies" mentors
We are excited to share with you an awesome concept in mentoring. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Detroit is introducing "Sports Buddies" to the Detroit Metropolitan area.
Thanks to the generosity of the Hudson Webber Foundation and the Community Foundation for as well as the partnership of the and Think / Detroit PAL we are excited to announce a new addition to BBBSMD's mentoring programs.
Men, you are needed to be a "Sports Buddies Mentor".
We have a special need for right now. Sports Buddies is an activity-based mentoring program that offers an opportunity to the mentors and mentees to get to know each under while doing what most men/boys enjoy: sports. There will be two required activities each month. One activity will be interactive and a chance for all of the BIGs and the littles to come together and play a game of softball, flag football or learn a new sport. Think / Detroit PAL will provide the coaches, sports equipment and the playing locations for this portion of the Sports Buddies program. The second activity will be an opportunity to attend a game, take a locker room tour and do something fun with your little that is sports related.
As a BIG your responsibilities are to attend the game day and then select one other activity for you and your little to participate in. Transportation for the littles to each activity is provided by their parent or care-giver. We also ask each BIG to make contact with their little the weeks that no activity is scheduled by phone or email. Each BIG is asked to make a twelve month commitment to their little and our program. Sports Buddies will have an eight month season followed by a post-season of four months in either our community or school-based program.
If you are interested in being a part of our draft by participating or have questions please contact Lynette Simmons at firstname.lastname@example.org or ASAP. We have forty roster (mentor) positions available to impact and make a BIG difference in the life of a young man.
It only takes 1% of your time to make a 100% of a difference. Don't sit on the bench, get in the game!

Hey ladies, I got some advice for you... appreciate a good man when you see one.
There aren't many of us out there, so when you got one don't turn face, and run.
Embrace that GOOD man, and don't let him get away... he's a true gift from above.
He takes care of your needs, holds down his place and gives unconditional love.
When times are tough and life is getting you down, and weighing on you like boulders.
Grab that GOOD man and hold on... he can handle it... just look at the size of his shoulders.
His strength comes from the size and depths of his heart and love he has for you.
And don't worry about over-burdening him... for a GOOD man this is nothing new.
It's nothing for him to sacrifice everything he has to make your life seem less stressed.
He's here for you to put a smile on your face and make it seem like he is the one blessed.
He's Blessed to have you and he will show it to you each and everyday
Because a GOOD man will always be by your side... and won't let you go astray.
His focus will be on point and it will seem like all your needs he's had intuned.
You won't even have to ask... if he had to... he would reach for the stars and give you the moon.
Because when a GOOD man loves a woman... there is nothing he won't do or won't give.
He would sacrifice his own life if that's what it took for you to live.
So ladies, once again... just please appreciate a good man when you see one.
If you finished reading this poem, I guess you listened to my advice and didnt turn face and run.
