1 ~ INSTRUCTIONS: Please answer the following five questions to inform the community about yourself and enhance your experience at the Ashland Source Center. Answers are NOT REQUIRED to join, and you can always fill them out later on your MYPORTAL page.
2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
The Oregon Cabaret Theatre hired me to play a role in the show Pump Boys and Dinettes in 1999. I had moved from my home in West Texas to Seattle three years earlier, but after one summer here, I was in love with Ashland and its people, so I stayed.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
Helping people learn to sing and to express confidently in front of others is a great joy. I also help public speakers improve their presentations skills. Performing arts has been my profession for many years; actor, singer, musician.
As well, I perform internationally as Harmonica Bob. I'm currently creating a new series of School shows about "building self esteem" and "appreciating human diversity." I'll be donating those shows to Southern Oregon shcools as community service.
And, oh yeah, this is cool. I'm doing the lead role in Shenandoah at the Camelot Theatre, March 11 through April 12, 2009. Great script and score. Wonderful directors and cast mates. I'm blessed to be doing this role.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
I'm producing vocal and harmonica instruction and performance content in video, audio and text format for my websites and blogs.
I would love to network with talented folks who have website and video skills.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
Wow, favorite books, that's easy... The trilogy by Philip Pullman, His Dark Matterials; which includes The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass. I love those.
As for movies, I watch hundreds of them. One of my favorites is the kid movie, The Little Vampire. Also, Stand By Me. I like movies where the kids are the heroes and the sheroes.
Favorite music... Anything by Mozart, Louis Armstrong or Jeff Pevar!
And if you'd like to listen, I put some of my Harmonica Bob tracks on the playlist here.
I would like to invite you to an evening with Mony Vital, PhD., who will
discuss his advanced healing technology, which uses frequency and information to help you raise your life force. Please see events.
Hope to see you there!

I am grateful that you feel moved by my art and appreciate the concept of the artservinghumanity website. Right now the challenge is that we need funding in order for it to get up and running, as it takes a lot of time and energy and that's what we currently are using to make living. Many blessings to you. Love, Gaelyn
Paros – the lovely island in Greece’s Cycladic region – is famous for its blue-and-white painted architecture, captivating coasts, and turquoise seas. Soon, it will be known for its environmental standards as well. It has been selected to represent a future free of plastic pollution and waste.
The President's comments come after Thunberg hammered President Trump for leaving the Paris Climate Accord. The speech by the far-left climate activist was made at the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.
There are bipartisan bills in Congress that we could pass right now to ensure the United States remains a global leader in emissions reduction, economic productivity, and clean energy production, all at once.”
That’s what Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) said in September, calling on Democrats to work with Republicans on commonsense, bipartisan solutions to protect the environment and our economy.
The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said the United States is joining the initiative.
“We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world,” Trump said.
America “will continue to show strong leadership in restoring, growing, and better managing our trees and our forests,” he added, drawing applause.
The One Trillion Trees Initiative was announced during the forum. It encourages countries to plant trees as part of the effort to combat climate change. The goal is to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050.
Ecologist Dr. Thomas Crowther told the forum last year that humans should plant 1.2 trillion trees to cancel out the past decade of CO2 emissions.
Human activities are behind the extinction crisis. Commercial agriculture, timber extraction, and infrastructure development are causing habitat loss and our reliance on fossil fuels is a major contributor to climate change.
Public corporations are responding to consumer demand and pressure from Wall Street. Professors Christopher Wright and Daniel Nyberg published Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations last fall, arguing that businesses are locked in a cycle of exploiting the world's resources in ever more creative ways.
