My Two Cents: Do you see what I see?

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – In a media career that spanned over 40 years, I’ve been blessed to have met a lot of incredible people.  Rock stars, celebrities, politicians and more. 

But what I’ve enjoyed the most is meeting people who’ve been dealt a bad hand, but have persevered and made the most of their life.  They refuse to let their circumstances dictate who they are.     

This is just that kind of story.

Dodging the Roadkill: Merry Christmas and Thank You

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I started this journey two years ago, I began a journal of my experiences and started blogging about it here.  Never in my wildest dreams did I expect this kind of response.

Thank You!

Buying a motorcycle when I did, was one of the most life changing experiences I’ve ever had.  I have met some INCREDIBLE people and traveled to some destinations that I would have never seen had it not been for this motorcycle. 

When I returned from my first long distance trip after buying my first bike, the first call I got was from a close friend I met while doing stand-up comedy.  He SHOWERED me with praise for what I had just done and told me how proud of me he was.

My Two Cents: Take A Break From The Hate

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – With the advent of Social Media, all of us have been given multiple opportunities to share our opinions, feelings, politics and faith.  I think it’s a wonderful thing.  There are so many people, places and things I would have NEVER seen if it had not been for that.

Regardless of whether you use Social Media or not, the Mainstream Media keeps us filled with news and opinion. 

Most of it negative.

American Heart Association reports Danish study finds One in Four People leave Work a year after a Heart Attack

 

Journal of the American Heart Association Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – One in four people leave their job within a year of returning to work after having a heart attack, according to a newly published study from Denmark in Journal of the American Heart Association, the Open Access Journal of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

While previous studies have looked at return to work following heart attack, this study analyzed long-term employment. Despite a high number of heart attack patients returning to their jobs shortly after the event, the new findings reveal a surprisingly high degree of unemployment within a year after a heart attack patient returns to work.

Heart attack survivors with diabetes, heart failure, depression and lower educational and income levels were the most likely to not be working a year after their heart attack. (American Heart Association)

Dodging the Roadkill: The Bond

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – When I began this journey, I had been suffering from serious depression.  This motorcycle pulled me out of it.  I wrote about it here

As I was researching motorcycles, styles, brands, etc., what I was most intrigued by was the culture.  The “biker” culture.  The brotherhood.  The bond.  

“Never leave a brother behind!”

After a career spent in a very superficial, selfish and self serving environment (broadcasting), it was exciting to forge new friendships. Friendships that were genuine.  Friendships that weren’t based on what I could do for someone.

My Two Cents: How a Motorcycle pulled me out of Depression

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I spent my career in the spotlight.  Forty years in broadcasting.  The last eighteen years as the owner of a radio station, and the host of a morning talk show.  I was right in the middle of everything.

Over the course of my career, I “hob-knobbed” with the rich and famous.  Rock stars, politicians, entertainers and more.  There was nobody I couldn’t hang out with. There wasn’t a politician or public official I couldn’t interview.
