Streaming Film: Eyes Of Tammy Faye
The ‘Eyes of Tammy Faye’ is an intimate look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker. In the 1970s and 80s, Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker, rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park and were revered for their message of love, acceptance and prosperity. Tammy Faye was legendary for her indelible eyelashes, her idiosyncratic singing, and her eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life. However, it wasn’t long before financial improprieties, scheming rivals and scandal toppled their carefully constructed empire. The film is compelling and is available to stream and in select theaters from today .
Read: The Vanderbilts: Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty
CNN Anchor Anderson Cooper writes a memoir to his son Wyatt sharing the story of his family the Vanderbilts, once the wealthiest family in America. The book shares deeply personal letters & photographs coupled with news stories about their complicated past. The CNN anchor has always distanced himself from his rich family roots taking his Father’s name Cooper as he embarked on a media career some thirty years ago. The book is a delicious read and is available online and at your local bookstore.
Hike: Mount Konocti State Park
This gem of a park is nestled upon the massive mountain known as Konocti that overlooks the towns of Kelseyville and Lakeport in Lake County. Drive up to the parking lot and then get ready to hike the 2.9 miles to the top. The trails are easy to follow and offer a handful of different routes to the top. What greets you at the top are some of the most amazing vistas of Clearlake below. There are picnic tables too along the way so pack a lunch and lots of water. Novice hikers (like me) will Fisk this one a breeze to traverse. May I suggest the morning as the perfect time to hike.
