 I am not usually a big fan of country music, unless you count Taylor Swift’s popular songs that my daughter Helena sings incessantly.

But, I had the pleasure of meeting Matt Kennon a rising star in the country music world when he came for an interview on Better .  I have to say I liked him and his country song. The 32-year-old dark-haired, jean wearing man with too many tattoos to count has a great song that is climbing the charts.  It’s called “The Call” and people say it’s saving lives.  The song talks about the call that saved a young man from committing suicide, and a young woman from having an abortion that she didn’t want.  At it’s heart it talks about how reaching out with a simple call can change the course of a person’s life.  In the days of constant communication through Facebook and texting it reminds us the human voice is still irreplaceable when it comes to showing you really care.

The song’s passion is fueled by Matt’s biography.  The Georgia native was given up for adoption to two loving parents.  But his quest to learn about his biological family connected him to a painful past.  His birth father had tried to sell him on the black market, his mother was dysfunctional and couldn’t work.  When she met him she told him she wished she had an abortion way back when because she couldn’t deal with meeting him later in life. He now calls them his “illegitimate” parents.

Even if you don’t think you like country check this

 out.  Matt tells me country is the new Rock N’ Roll!

If you missed the show you can see the video on and see my interview with Matt on

By the way ladies, he tells me he’s single!


Shake Your Chakras
February 8, 2010

In this week’s Kara’s Cure we explore the energy centers in our body that have been talked about since ancient times.  It is said we all have seven chakras.  Each vibrates the a color you find in a rainbow.  The word Chakra means wheel in Sanskrit.  Holistic nurse Doreen Fishman in West Hartford helps us continue to look inside ourn bodies for answers to our questions about health and well being.

I became intrigued when she once noticed my 2nd chakra was “imbalanced” at a time when my stress levels were high.  To her it looked enlarged and murky.  I cannot see chakras, but many healers who are able to tune into our auras can.  She did some energy work on me and gave me some homework like deep breaths and some positive affirmations to get me back in balance.

I wanted to learn more!  So this week we take you through the Chakras and explain what they relate to, and practical fun things you can do to make some adjustments.  For instance the second chakra, is also called the sacral chakra, and radiates orange.  It relates to money and relationships.  When you are having issues in those areas I’ve learned you should shake that chakra…by dancing or bowling…or anything else that get’s it moving in a circular motion.  The ideas is our lives are written in the cells of our bodies, by improving our bodies we improve our lives, and maybe more importantly, by improving our lives we heal our bodies.

I hope you enjoy the story on Better at 10am Monday Feb. 8th.  If you miss it go to and watch it there.
