Bald Beagle, an exciting new educational entertainment channel for kids, has released Episode 1: “George Washington Loved to Dance.” Bald Beagle is the creation of The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) creative team, made up of dynamic writers, performers, and creators whose credits include entertainment giants like Disney and Nickelodeon.
“George Washington Loved to Dance” Episode Summary: Join us on a field trip to the Bald Beagle Institute of Historical Stuff for a special lesson about our founding father, George Washington. Everyone knows that Washington was America’s first President, but there are many other interesting facts about him that most people don’t know. For instance, despite how serious he appears in paintings and even on the dollar bill, did you know that George Washington loved to dance?
Featuring puppets, cutting-edge animation, music and more to connect with young audiences, Bald Beagle offers short-form videos designed to make kids smile, sing, and laugh while also teaching them about our country’s important and often inspiring history. Bald Beagle will also present lessons of faith and the moral principles that our nation was founded on — principles so many of us still share today.
Bald Beagle is a place for kids to find engaging, educational entertainment that illustrates the great – and sometimes complicated – history and principles of these United States we are blessed to call home. From the Founding Fathers, to how government actually works, to what they, even as kids, can do to protect and preserve our constitutional republic. Moms, dads, and grandparents can rest assured that their kids are being taught fundamental truths – not being exposed to some extreme, subversive agenda – through high-quality content that can compete with the best children’s entertainment that television, streaming services, or the internet have to offer.

Amy and I were just talking this morning about how we would love to be baptized in the Jordan River, and then I came upon this awesome story.
NFL quarterback gets baptized in Jordan River during ‘life-changing’ first trip to Israel
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, who set records as a rookie and will be going into his third season this fall, was submerged in the Jordan River, the same place the Bible records Jesus was baptized, during his first trip to the Holy Land co-sponsored by America’s Voices in Israel.
“It is simply overwhelming,” Watson explained. “To be baptized in the waters of the Jordan River, sail on the Sea of the Galilee, and visit one of the first towns where Jesus preached his Gospel – I am truly in awe of this wonderful land and the wonderful people who live here.”

Friend of the podcast Angelica Hale is having a big week. Here are two posts about our friend.
Angelica Hale took the AGT stage one last time during the airing of Monday night’s final of NBC’s America’s Got Talent the Champions. Delivering an incredible inspiring performance. Angelica performed the song “Impossible”.
America’s Got Talent favorite Angelica Hale has released a new music video in support of Sepsis survivors week. The music video “No Time To Waste” was released following Angelica’s appearance on NBC’s AGT the champions in the final of the competition featuring popular acts from the Got Talent franchise around the world. Angelica Hale’s health struggles have been well-documented throughout her time on America’s Got Talent. She has been an inspiration to so many of overcoming life’s difficulties and being able to achieve her dreams.
“As a Sepsis survivor, I am grateful to be able to use my talent to raise awareness of Sepsis which will hopefully save many lives. I wrote this song, “No Time To Waste” in partnership with Sepsis Alliance with that message in mind. I hope you all enjoy and to learn more, please go to sepsis.org today.” Angelica said about the original song.
In our interview with Joe Bonsall of The Oak Ridge Boys, he talked about the coat that President Bush was wearing in the picture below. Joe made sure that his PR Rep sent us this picture to use. Hear that story and much more in the interview at the link below.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. To me, this pictures speaks volumes of “The Greatest Generation”. While they had been political allies and rivals, it was their service to our country that brings a smile to my face.
This week, with the passing of President George Bush, we have heard quite a bit of information about him flying numerous combat missions and about the time he was shot down by the Japanese, during WW II.
Bob Dole served on the other side of the globe during WW II. He suffered permanent injuries when he was hit by German machine gun fire near Castel d’Aiano in the Apennine mountains southwest of Bologna, Italy.
When I look at the picture above, there are several things that come into my mind.
First is that there is an American patriot and hero laying in State in a coffin covered by a flag that both Bush and Dole sacrificed greatly for.
Next, I see another American patriot and hero being helped to stand out of his wheelchair.
Also, you see a left-handed salute (salutes are to be given with the right hand). You see, Dole can not salute with his right hand due to the injuries mentioned earlier.
Bob Dole paid the ultimate respect between two veterans, first by standing when it is nearly impossible for him to do at this point in his life, and then rendering a salute the only way possible – with his left hand.
This is a very proud moment in American history and a memory that I have that will last a lifetime.
