Ted Deeds from the Law Enforcement Alliance of America and I talk about personal appearance as it relates to the law enforcement and security profession.  AMC’s The Walking Dead recap of Season 6, episode 13 - Same Boat.  and the cover of a Willie Nelson song. 

As much as we like to think it doesn’t matter, I have found that the way to present yourself makes the difference between a successful day, getting a promotion or the better job. That is not fair you say. Truth is, your appearance matters. The clothes you wear make a difference. The colors you wear make a statement.  We're going to talk about it here.

Thoughts about church fights and an update on the latest recap of AMC’s The Walking Dead. A cover of the Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash.

This episode came to mind after a conversation with my sister and a pastor friend that are both going through something in there churches, respectively. Here are some of the things I have learned.

There will always be some level of conflict whenever human beings gather, so expect it in the church too. I didn’t and it hurt me. The pastor should be the head of the church. If the deacons are fighting the pastor they are out of order. Anything with more than one head is a monster.

I’d like to hear if you have a story or a comment about this subject. 301-828-1414.

Thought for today: Dying churches spend their energy fighting each other and fighting change.

Growing churches spend their energy fighting for new opportunities to reach un-churched people and speaking up for the change that will impact their lives.

For some people there is therapy.  For me there is podcasting.

On this episode of the Kenn Blanchard Show Podcast I share a personal struggle that just hit me this week.  It was the reason behind the post on the Kenn blog entitled We all must fight -  Before I take you there however I have a special guest, Everett Robinson, my personal trainer who will be sharing some fitness tips with you.  We are going to start with the mental first.  And then because I love you, I am going to try to entice you with my first audiobook.  Its a crime thriller with a twist.  Would love to know what you think of the snippet I shared.  You can find the rest of it and about it on  


Thanks for listening.

Decided to change the show and include all the elements of previous podcasts and radio shows I tried and couldn’t maintain.   The new Kenn Blanchard Show will feature Motorcycle Radio, Blanchard Outdoors, WarriorCast features and content that I wanted to have only there in addition to positive thoughts, inspiration and motivation for you. This transitional show features the Martial Arts Woman.

Change happens. This is one of those short sentences that can fly right over your head when you hear it. For me on the other hand, it is something I live. I have observed and remember the changes that have occurred since my birth. I think it’s a blessing. Socrates said that one cannot contemplate life while they are starving.

The words we speak have power, they are more powerful than many people realize. The words we say can put a smile on someone's face or bring tears to another one's eyes. We can encourage one another with the words we speak or we can crush the hopes and dreams of the ones we love by not watching what we say.  Today, I make a difference.

Not sure about the length oft he podcast so I need your input.  Let me know what you think is best.

Believe you can and you're halfway there.--Theodore Roosevelt

For me, the change was internal.  I want to change this blog and podcast to be more positive.  I want it to be something you look forward to.  So I am making some course corrections.   You'll notice a change to the music and theme of the show .  This is the transition show. Hang on and lets ride!

Don't watch the clock do what it does and keep moving.
Life is short time flies there is no replay and no rewind.
Time management is the act or process of planning and exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectivenessefficiency or productivity.
Lyrics from Jim Croce, "Time in a Bottle"
If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you
But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with
If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you
But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with.

I have never talked about death before publically but feel like someone needs this subject brought up.

I want to inspire you.  I want you one day to look at me and say because of you I didn’t give up.


This week on the Kenn Blanchard Show, I hope to start a movement.  We are going to be a support system of encouragement and positive motivation to others listening to this show.  We get it and I appreciate and love you for it.

Our featured guest is my cousin, former NFL player Thomas Smith.  He gives us some encouragement to keep on keeping on.

In the motorcycle realm, I discovered there is a national black biker meetup this week in SC.

In the Outdoors area, I share that fishing is great right now in the Maryland, Virginia Area (DMV).   

And why mosquitoes like you so much.
