Cinco De Mayo!  It's a is a yearly celebration held on May 5 to celebrate Mexico's victory over the Second French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, led by General Ignacio Zaragoza.  It's also a bigger holiday in the USA than it is Mexico and it's become a celebration of all that Latino culture has added to our life.  Here in Muskegon, it's really had an influence in many ways, one of which is the food.  Our offerings of Latino food options draw lines between families and those who like their cooking like almost nowhere else.  Not a bad battle to have going on in town, trying to figure out where the best tacos, burritos and tamales are.  However, the Latino community is also very robust with the importance of their heritage and culture and loves sharing more than just food.  They love sharing their hearty sense of family and fun too. 

We hope you enjoyed the break last week.  Becky has been really pushing the followers of Fit and Healthy with Becky for a while helping make the most of higher end workout's.  Maybe a little too much.  The requests have been heard.  This week, it's super low impact seated and at a pace that anyone can manage.  Fit and Healthy With Becky is brought to you by Trinity Health. 

Grief is not an exclusively human experience.  Bonds and attachment are deep between humans and animals and within the animal life experience between one another.  There's also one unavoidable truth to this all....there's no escaping the final curtain for people or pets and learning the idea of grief and how to best manage it is really what we can do.  This week on Dog Blessed, Jodi welcomes Jodi Clock to share some thoughts and insight on the adaptation that pets need to go through should they lose an owner or maybe a pet friend.

Monday!  Yes, it happened again.  HOWEVER!  YOU!!!  Yes!!  YOU! Begin your week with Fit and Healthy With Becky and that is the sign of a champion.  Someone who looks at life and all of it's challenges and laughs saying "Is that all ya got?"  Ok, that might be a little bit much of a drill sergeant attitude, but...Spring is literally right around the corner and it's time to shake a leg!  Let's get to it!  Fit and Healthy With Becky is brought to you by Trinity Health. 

Jodi Jarvis-Therrian is here this morning with a very interesting way to not only help your dog or cat get some essential nutrition from an unsuspecting source.  Jodi is the expert when it comes to all things pet here at the Muskegon Channel, and to hear from her weekly about what you may have never thought of as a nutritional solution as well as a way to repurpose leftovers and strengthen up some bones....listen up!  

After a pretty strenuous four weeks, Becky is giving the advanced members of the Fit and Healthy Audience a bit of a breather, and the newer members of the group a chance to get moving with a LOT less of an impact.  This is also an awesome way to help people who might have limited ability or have reached a certain age who have a wiling mind, but a little more hesitation in the body.  Welcome to episode 311 of Fit and Healthy With Becky brought to you by Trinity Health. 

Kooi Housewares has been part of our publishing's for a long time.  We're really thankful for their support and really amazed to see just how much they do both as a retail shop located on Sun Dolphin Drive just off Sherman and online too.  They have actually been online longer than having a retail footprint, 10 years of online sales has given them the position of being a market leader when it comes to knowledge and expertise in not only what's cool and for functional kitchenware, but selling it on a much larger platform.

It's been a pretty intense few weeks.  Becky has amped it up and this week is the big finish with an upper body workout utilizing the TRX equipment to strengthen and tone your upper body!  Don't have TRX?  Throwing a rope over the top of a rafter will do!!  Let's get to it!!  Fit and Healthy with Becky is brought to you by Trinity Health.

We've come to a milestone!  From a wide viewpoint, to bring a media company to life is a long road.  To bring in people who've never really done traditional media to the experience is a difficult part of it as well and asking them to believe and understand that things might start off a little slow, but stay the course....trust the guy who's been crazy enough to give this a try and it will blossom.  This is episode 100 for Jodi and Olaf of Dog Blessed and a quick look over the growth of this program from her first guest appearance on November 23rd of 2021 until now, there have been close to 201,000 page views by pet lovers everywhere.  That's drive and determination on Jodi's part and we're really amazed by her!  Jodi, thank you and congratulations!
