No, this is not our designated Elvis time, that will come later this month, however the Title is so appropriate for this Celebrity blog post today..... If you are curious about this marvelous Actor, check out his book at:
We are talking about the dynamic actor in the Man of Jordan Rhodes. You may remember him in such shows as "Adam - 12", "Marcus Welby, M.D.", the movie "S.A.M", .. and many other countless roles.
I had the distinct honor and pleasure to sit down and break some bread with this fine man and his lovely wife, Lynne.
His book is just amazing. The story is remarkable in of itself yet it shows the true meaning of perseverance and determination. Jordan has taken on many roles and wore many hats along the way while staying true to the love of his craft.
These are images in his early days of the duo the "Castaways" and also a stint in radio. (courtesy of Jordan and the book, A Blue Collar Actor)
I found his book, A Blue Collar Actor, to be so engaging and interesting - Going from Tobacco Road to Buckingham Palace.
The relationships he has forged along the way are amazing . All the years in this crazy business and he has been able to build great business relations and stay in the field as a working actor. Business relations were had with the likes of Sean Penn, Robert Wagner, Jill St. John, and many more ....and some have given lasting friendship a new name....
The road wasn't always easy and Jordan has had his share of trials and tribulations yet he pursued. He overcame the obstacles that kept showing up in his life. These are just unsolved situations and we solve them as we go along. That doesn't mean that obstacles don't bear the scars of hurt and disappointment yet we find ways to pursue....
I always say there is so much power in the next great connection. There are times when you don't even know the little spider web that is being built .
.....Sykes was the first person to introduce me to Dennis Hopper. Dennis was appearing in a Broadway show that Sykes and I attended. After the performance, Sykes took me backstage so she could say hi to Dennis, and she introduced me. The play was entitled "Mandingo" and it had a short run. Years later I'd meet Dennis again, and I worked with him in "The Indian Runner" directed and written by Sean Penn. I would also meet up with Sykes years later in Arkansas, where she had returned in seclusion. I was working with Gregory Peck, Stacy Keach, and a stew of other name actors in "The Blue and the Gray", a blockbuster mini-series for television. ......
Catch the full story in the book. It is so interesting , not only for an actor or aspiring actor, yet for the chance to take a glimpse into life experiences and how they relate to you and your endeavors.
4 A STAR
Shout out to International Internet Hall of fame Radio show host- Geri Petito who introduced us. Catch her on www.hamiltonradio.net and other stations. You can find her on Face Book. Also a thank you to Jordan for appearing on Ava's Casual chat ant Teens with dreams at Hamilton Radio....

Hello Monday eve !
Hope you are all getting a great start to your Thanksgiving week. It is quite difficult these days to maintain a sense of "Normalcy" is you may.... I know I find myself more depressed than not lately and I am constantly finding ways to stay positive. ( that's usually no problem for me, yet these days it's been challenging)..
That all said, we all desperately need to learn to live in Possibility ! want to make sure that you are not "giving up" on anything no matter what your situation is. No matter what is going on in the World , we need to keep moving forward. In this crazy time in the World and with Thanksgiving coming up- let's be grateful for any little thing we have. Let's be grateful for any little thing we can get , and let's be grateful to be able to help one another during these times.... I love a quote I heard a long time ago....
"No one ever went blind by looking on the bright side"
P = Perseverance
Put all these together and connect the dots to your Possibility ! Happy Thanksgiving everyone !

According to google.... pickles can help with digestion. They are full of good bacteria known as probiotics. Cucumbers are high in an antioxidant called beta-carotene, which your body turns into vitamin A.The high vinegar content in pickles is said to boost fat burning abilities and improve and promote overall weight loss.....So let us celebrate National Pickle Day today !!!
( if you are not a pickle fan, hang on and we'll do something sweet soon ! LOL)
....Again thanks for being loyal viewers of this blog....
WE ARE BACK NOW FOR SURE !

I have got serious ways to make money on line while we wait out the crazy unprecedented trip the World is taking right now.... We will be growing 4 A STAR with a brand new website and new things to offer everyone... in the meantime, let's get caught up in here.... so we go back to our Kindness event. We covered this event last year and now we bring you some new content for the event that took place in November. Hopefully, we will be doing this again in November coming and all of this will be behind us....
So Red Bank NJ is the way we kick off National Kindness week. It starts with the streets being blocked off for the cool "Dance with Kindness" event. People can register on line and learn the dance to participate in.... then everyone rehearses on a back lot... and then the dance explosion begins....;
Heading up the Red Bank event is my good friend and business associate TereseRolke....
find her on Face Book and tell her Ava sent you to find out more about Kindness week.... Here are some highlights from the event....

Wow ! Are we all going through it or what? Between whirlwind "stuff" and all the new "stuff" going on now.... it's a wonder I can even get in here..... We have A LOT of catching up to do and with people staying at home for the most part, maybe we can provide some interesting reading...
For right now, I want to just speak to the matter at hand. Whether you are working from home, working out in the public, serving the public or not working at all ( and going crazy).... just take it one moment at a time, one breath at a time...
I have no idea what our "New Normal" will look like or even when it will look like.... yet stress is a factor that can make everything worse....
The best we can do right now is do what we feel is right in our heart and stay clean....
WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY ( and at least 20 seconds.... singing Happy Birthday twice or going through the alphabet will give you the proper time to wash your hands)
STAY AWAY FROM NSAIDS/ ADVIL ANYTHING LIKE THAT...Tylenol or like Tylenol is fine
STAY HOME IF YOU CAN... Or if you go out, follow guidelines and social distance....
All of these things are said to keep us safer and avoid spreading .
I am no expert yet I am watching and learning.... find actual facts...don't buy in to some of the stuff that is just not true ! Use trusted sources for your information....
That all said....we are in this together and this will pass at some point so Hang in there....
In the meantime, I will be back tomorrow with much needed catch up !
Stay safe and be well..... make sure you breathe.... do some light exercise....go for a walk around your house or development.... do a hobby...get in here and read - LOL
