All of us have a love language: some way we prefer love to be communicated to us. For some it’s touch, for others it’s receiving gifts. Your ideal partner in life is a person who speaks your language of love.

If you’re having trouble finding that perfect lifetime love-talk , Ann Parnes can help you.

Mardi gras Indian Big Chief Delco

Big Chief Delco from Creole Osceola Mardi Gras Indian Tribe is in his 54th year of marriage and he can tell you straight out, his love language is not touch. He doesn’t want people touching him. He has, however, touched a lot of people. In his 50-plus years as a Chief he has traveled the world spreading the gospel of the Indian way, he’s adopted schools, influenced countless kids, and been such a leading light advocate of the Indian tradition that the Positive Vibrations Foundation is recognizing him with the coveted Heartbeat award.

Martin "Bats" Bradford is ready!

Martin “Bats” Bradford

2020 is the year Martin “Bats” Bradford breaks into the big time. Bats is an accomplished actor but most of his accomplishments have been acting in movies and TV and theater that has originated in New Orleans. If you don’t know his name, you know his face but for you to be able to say “Oh wow, it’s Bats Bradford!” rather than “Where do I know that guy from?” Bats is going to have to leave us and do time in Hollywood. Meantime, he’s one of the nicest guys you’ll meet so make the most of it before fame goes to his head.
