Hey there! Welcome back! It's Dr. D the "V", David Madow. Back for another fantastic episode. I welcome you to The David Madow Lifestyle Show. Thanks so much for being here. I really appreciate the feedback so many of you have given me! I took a week off. We did not do a show last week and skipped the week. It was the first time I skipped an episode in about 2 years actually. And the outpouring of love from you guys asking me what was going on because you hadn't seen the show this past week. I love you guys and thanks so much for being concerned! To answer many of your questions, everything is great! I just had come off of the end of Hippie Road Trip #4, I had a lot of stuff going on in my business. And you know something? I never want to put out a show unless I think it is a great one for you. The last thing I want to do is waste 20 minutes of your day listening to something that is not valuable or something that doesn't make sense. So I decided not to do a show last week. Will I ever skip any more weeks in the future? Yes, perhaps I will just depending on what I've got going on and my schedule. Trust me if I miss a week, I love you still. It has nothing to do with anything except for the fact that I just didn't have it in me to do a show that week. That's all. So, getting past that, I am super super excited. As I am recording this, I am getting ready for the first Vegan Indian Buffet & Open Mic (VIBOM) dinner. It's going to take place this evening in Owings Mills, MD. If you're listening to this now, it has already passed and I am sure it was a huge success. If you're not on my list and you want to know more about upcoming events such as more vegan buffets and open mics, please make sure you get on my list. The way to do that is to visit my website and enter your email address to join the VIP list or find my Facebook group. We are actually over capacity tonight and are expecting 44 people. I will be scheduling another one and the next time I do one I am going to see if I can get more capacity because this thing has taken off like crazy. It's not just locals. We've got Mark "ThePro" Jackson coming in from North Carolina. He's taking a train up to Baltimore from North Carolina to join us in this Vegan Indian Buffet & Open Mic. It's going to be awesome and I cannot wait to see you. If you're listening to this and you were there, I am so glad that I saw you at the Vegan Open Mic. I want to share a few little things I learned from Hippie Road Trip #4. If you remember, Hippie Road Trip #4 went from Memphis, TN (where I spoke on a Saturday) and I had some time to take and drive down to West Palm Beach Florida where I would be speaking about 6 days later. I went through Memphis into Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, then into Florida. It was an awesome trip and I learned a lot actually. One of the things I learned is that southerners are really good people. I want to back up and say, most people are really good people. But when I was driving through the south through Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama, and Georgia, and Florida, I had the opportunity to stop at a lot of truck stops. One of my favorites is Love's Truck Stop and I make it a point to stop at a Love's whenever I can and get some fresh brewed iced tea. Unsweetened of course. And you come in contact with a lot of people. Not necessarily conversations but let me tell you something. People are so nice and polite. If they're walking down an aisle or opening a door, they'll say thank you or excuse me. I really took a step back and just really tried to observe. You hear so many people these days saying that people these days aren't nice and they think only about themselves. But I'm not finding that, my friend! I am not finding that. I am finding some really good people wherever I go. Maybe 1 out of 10 or 1 out of 20 aren't so nice but I don't know. Maybe it's my energy. Maybe it's my vibration. But I'm running into a lot of good people.
