My guest on tonight’s “A Book and a Chat” is Author/Writer/Poet “Tinisha Nicole Johnson”.

Tinisha has come a long way since at the age of eleven she started writing poetry, keeping several journals of these poems, some of which were published in books poetry collection books.

While poetry is still Tinisha’s first love she has produced novels and short stories across many different realms of writing from her first novel “Searchable Whereabouts” A mystery novel about a woman is trying to unravel the mysterious death of her beloved uncle. To her latest production “Lessons Learned: Loving Yourself as a Black Woman

During the show Tinisha shared with us how “Lessons Learned” came about, the inspiration behind the writing and the hope she has that this book will help others.

A self help book, “Lessons Learned” addresses ten life lessons into a woman’s most intimate and professional life, while emphasizing the importance of self-love. The book touches on issues of happiness, self-love, a woman’s worth, family and more. Although the book caters mostly towards women of color, it is a book that any woman can benefit from. With powerful tips, messages, and suggestions it is, as Tinisha hopes a book that can help many.

As they say, the show must go on, so pulling myself out of my sick bed (why is it always the bed that is sick?) I managed to chat and croak with the very interesting
J.R. Hauptman about him and his new book “The Target: Love, Death and Airline Deregulation”

J.R. Hauptman, is a retired pilot. His book is set in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain West, and tells the tale of the tumultuous first years of airline deregulation and the effects it had on that industry and the people who worked there. There are many people today who believe it was, in large part, the rush to overall dLove, Death and Airline Deregulation back then that led directly to the economic chaos that threatens to overwhelm our entire economy today.

Why not stop for thirty minute and share this enjoyable and interesting chat

Tickety-Boo

Yesterday I was hunting around for a copy of a song I heard a while ago thinking to replace the opening music for my “Book and a Chat” radio shows which currently is set to “Tea for Two”. The reason being, the show is aimed to be a friendly chat between two friends over a cup a tea/coffee. The guests I have had so far and the show has been running since February with over forty shows so far and a waiting list for guests going into November.

Anyway I was looking for a song called “Tickety-Boo” by one of my favorite singers Ralph McTell, who sang the song along with Billy Connolly with the launch in October 18th 1999, Tickety-Boo is tea. The sales of this tea in eighteen months after the launch, Tickety-Boo had already raised over £50,000 to help children in India, China, Romania and Tibet.

The song not only starts with a whistling kettle coming to the boil but has such wonderful lines as…


“A little cup and saucery is magic in the morning.”

And…
“Tickety-Boo, isn’t that nice? The only cup of tea that makes you feel good twice. “

Needless to say I could not find my copy (old cassette) nor find a place on line to purchase or down load the music.

Today I did find the old cassette, and also why I had not played the music as the cassette due I would guess to little fingers was broken.

So while I hunt the internet for another copy I though I’d check up on the meaning of
“tickety-boo”

This is the best I have found…

There are a number of theories regarding the origin of the expression “tickety-boo” (also sometimes spelt “ticketty-boo”, tiggity-boo”) meaning “all in order, satisfactory, as it should be.” or ” Everything is going fine”.”Things are proceeding smoothly or quickly”.
It appeared in the early 1920s, well before World War II, and was in general use by the 1940s. It is still used in UK by people of “a certain age” and therefore has become rather old fashioned.
There is the theory that it is a relic of the British colonial presence in India and it may have originated in the British military. One of the most accepted and common theories about “tickety-boo” connects it to the Hindi expression “tikai babu” or “tickee babu” meaning “Everything’s alright, sir”.

So this week when people ask how you are feeling,just tell them.

“I’m tickety-boo”

A BOOK AND A CHAT WITH ????

The bookings are coming in thick and fast, the guests that appear on a show have all really enjoyed themselves. In fact many have chatted on with me after the show for almost an hour. I have received loads if emails and comments from people who enjoy the easy style of the friendly chat over a cup of tea.

Let’s face it that is what it is all about. I’m no literary genius, no library or book buff. I’m a person who likes to have a chat, who loves to have a laugh and who’s aim is to make the show interesting got all people who listen during or after the show.

Any way I thought I’d share with you, what or rather who is coming om the show over the next few weeks.

While perhaps some of the names might not mean anything now, look out for details nearer the time, and enjoy each and every radio show.
