Check your reciepts because there's some sneaky things going on... and a rant about school lunch funding and what we could consider doing about it.
I've recently learned of what may become a standard practice with the "big box" retail stores that could be slipping in things you didn't ask for, want or need, That's the heads up for the first part of the show. In the second part, I rant a bit about what's going on with school lunch program funding, the current federal administrations actions as well as the response from 22 Attorney's General. If you aren't aware, you need to be and then tell your friends, family, neighbors and everyone you see because they most likely didn't know either.  As always I appreciate every purchase of in house merchandise creations, tips and  affiliate sales… so clicks and a drop in the hat are always appreciated Merch: Tips:

So it’s January 12, 2019. Why not? Stranger things have happened.
Stranger things have happened I want you to think about this. Let’s say you woke up and it was  January 12th, 2019. The events of the past two+ years, haven’t occurred.  What would be different for you? That’s the question I’m posing to myself and challenging you with on this episode of the podcast. Quick housekeeping notes: the name change and the theme song. Also,  shop or drop a tip. It’s appreciated. If you’d like to hire me for  consulting or production services reach me at jaksocial@outlook dot com Moral of the story: When things seem impossible and at their worst NOW  go back in your mind to a time you feel things were “better, good, great  “ etc, and ask yourself “What was different then?” “What did I do or  not do since?” “What’s the regrets?” “How can I right the ship NOW?”

Let's talk blogging, prepping and a surprising level of growth thanks to "Working with Intent"
So the world is trying to implode so what should we do? I say prep and blog about it, all the cool kids are doing it! My sarcasm out of the way, I do invite you to listen in as we chat about a recent power outage we had here and how it reminded me that preparedness isn't paranoia when emergencies aren't a matter of "if" but instead "when". I also share my thoughts on the massive influx of new readers I've had come into the Toy Box thanks to my post on "Working with Intent" and the associated podcast. It'll be fun, informative and inspiring. Please be sure to follow along this journey at  Also, it is much appreciated if you will shop the links I have on the site.

Things are getting heavy and scary HOWEVER you, me and we are doing amazing things!
In this first episode of 2022, the focus falls on the amazing opportunities that are available to all of us thanks to genuine unity and cooperation. If that sounds anti climactic and too hippy-ish, boy oh boy are you missing the point. It’s far from bad. Break Free from the Matrix that Society has created. That’s the motivation behind The JAK Entertainment Network and in this episode I share with you how we’re continuing setting our focus with laser precision and encouraging you to take some notes along the way. Or you could always hold out until the book is published.  See the complete show notes at  Also, check out this feature from Anchor that I just learned about: Voice Messages! Yeah, yeah, not earth shattering but I love the idea of being able to get questions and soundbites from you folks!

Want to stop the Idiocracy? Here's some thoughts, observations and suggestions.
The "they" of legacy and alternative media alike have found themselves falling prey to the new religion of stupidity that is falling out the pie holes of today's "leaders" and unless WE point it out to each other, the future is looking to be a really stoopid movie. for the store and more.

1st amendment under attack but we're focusing on the solutions.
12/13/2021 - Ep.002 introduces our "Red Alert Report", an encouraging run of synchronicity that we hope you'll also find at just the right time, updates from Jim's Toy Box, an idea so absurd that we had to do it as a Paranormal Quest, a recommendation on a spooky and kooky way to lighten your day that adds a tap to your toe and also we begin a week long journey that hopefully will encourage you to learn more about 3D printing.
