Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer as America’s most famous sex therapist. Few know her incredible journey to get there. Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who fled the Nazis in the Kindertransport, joined the Haganah in Jerusalem as a sniper, struggled as a single mother newly-arrived in America – and eventually became “Dr. Ruth,” America’s Sex Therapist. A triumphant and heartwarming story of a woman who found her own unique place in the world.

The benefactor requires just one thing - that she write to him monthly, even though he will not respond. Her letters to him paint a moving portrait of the development of her mind and spirit, and she emerges as a fiercely independent, intelligent woman, who is destined to find love...

L.M. and Jim run a filling station down Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country. Across the way is a diner operated by Rhetta and Prudie. You wouldn’t guess it, but these diamonds-in-the-rough can deliver a toe-tapping evening of country western songs on guitar, piano, bass, and even a kitchen utensil or two, including lively foot-stompers like “Farmer Tan” and “The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine!” It’s a good, ol’ fashioned, “just for fun” time!
