• Doctor tells you your weight would be perfect for a man 17 feet tall.

• You are responsible for a slight but measurable shift in the earth's axis.

• You decide to take a little nap and wake up in mid-July.

• World's fattest man sends you a telegram, warning you to "back off!"

• Every escalator you step on immediately grinds to a halt.

• You realize that's not sweat coming out of your pores -- that's gravy!

Do you ever watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade on TV check this out:


Kathleen Caronna might want to think about buying a lucky horseshoe or something. First, in 1997, she was the victim of the infamous Cat in the Hat incident. When the Cat balloon got swept astray of the parade route by high winds, it ran into a lamp post and knocked it down -- right in to Caronna, who was in a coma for a month afterward. She sued the city, Macy’s, and the lamp post manufacturer for $395 million and settled for an undisclosed amount. Then, in 2006, a plane carrying Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle and his flight instructor crashed into the Belaire Apartments building. Caronna’s apartment was one of the ones hit, although she wasn’t home at the time.

In 1986, there were two incidents: a 61-year-old bagpiper had a fatal heart attack while marching in the parade, and a spectator fell out the fourth story window he was watching from and landed on someone below.

In 1942, the parade was canceled and the balloons were reduced to rubber for the war efforts. The Red Cross War Fund of Greater New York received a check for $12 for the 650 pounds of rubber.

In 1957, a downpour caused the hat on the Popeye balloon to fill up with rain. The added weight made the balloon veer off course, and eventually the cap could hold no more water and dumped gallons and gallons on surprised spectators.

In 1993, the Sonic the Hedgehog balloon hit a lamppost and basically exploded. Part of the lamppost fixture fell and broke the shoulder of an off-duty policeman standing below.

In 2006, two sisters were attacked by M&Ms. The ropes of the 515-pound balloon promoting the tasty chocolate morsels got caught up on a lamppost. Neither of the girls were hurt too badly -- just some minor scrapes and bruises. In exchange for their ordeal, they received V.I.P. seats in the grandstand and a lifetime supply of M&Ms.

1995 was not the best year the parade ever had. A woman who was seven months pregnant was injured when a float knocked a traffic light into her. Luckily, there were only minor injuries. Another lady fell through a subway grate. And a group of anti-fur protesters stripped down to nothing but Santa hats and tried to join the parade. They were arrested for public lewdness and indecent exposure.

Thanks to the wonder full Don, who often calls me on my SHOW here was ne of his funny Jokes he often passes along with me, YES this one is CLEAN as well LOL THANKS DON!

A blond and a brunette are chatting over coffee. The blonde says, "You know, here lately, I've been experiencing a strange and painful side effect from coffee. I'm fine when I drink it black, but if I put cream or sugar or both in it, I get this horrible stabbing pain in one eye." With that, she took a drink of her coffee. "OW! Darn. See, there it goes again!" And the brunette replied, "Take the spoon out of the cup."

Monday, AGAIN!!?!?!?!?! Well sometimes I wish we could re-name Monday so it doesn’t sound so obscene right? Back at it this morning is always the key! Getting up felt better even though it was an our earlier if you were under a rock hiding from everything in the world and you are reading this, YES it was daylight savings time. I felt good an extra hour seems like the little extra sprinkle on your ice-cream cone or maybe that smidge of sugar you know you really should not have on your breakfast cereal but you go ahead and do it anyway. Maybe that extra comfie feeling you get right before you go to bed and know you are getting more sleep than normal! Awe yes DAYLIGHT SAVINGS time is always good times for an early riser let me tell ya something! If you are very curious about the whole daylight savings time YES YES Google is here for us to answer all of our little funny questions CHECK IT OUT:

Starting in 2007, daylight time begins in the United States on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. On the second Sunday in March, clocks are set ahead one hour at 2:00 a.m. local standard time, which becomes 3:00 a.m. local daylight time. On the first Sunday in November, clocks are set back one hour at 2:00 a.m. local daylight time, which becomes 1:00 a.m. local standard time. These dates were established by Congress in the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Pub. L. no. 109-58, 119 Stat 594 (2005).

Not all places in the U.S. observe daylight time. In particular, Hawaii and most of Arizona do not use it. Indiana adopted its use beginning in 2006.

In 2006, daylight time begins on April 2 and ends on October 29.
In 2007, daylight time begins on March 11 and ends on November 4. [New law goes into effect.]
In 2008, daylight time begins on March 9 and ends on November 2.
In 2009, daylight time begins on March 8 and ends on November 1.
Many other countries observe some form of "summer time", but they do not necessarily change their clocks on the same dates as the U.S.

Daylight time and time zones in the U.S. are defined in the U.S. Code, Title 15, Chapter 6, Subchapter IX - Standard Time.

History of Daylight Time in the U.S.
Although standard time in time zones was instituted in the U.S. and Canada by the railroads in 1883, it was not established in U.S. law until the Act of March 19, 1918, sometimes called the Standard Time Act. The act also established daylight saving time, a contentious idea then. Daylight saving time was repealed in 1919, but standard time in time zones remained in law. Daylight time became a local matter. It was re-established nationally early in World War II, and was continuously observed from 9 February 1942 to 30 September 1945. After the war its use varied among states and localities. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 provided standardization in the dates of beginning and end of daylight time in the U.S. but allowed for local exemptions from its observance. The act provided that daylight time begin on the last Sunday in April and end on the last Sunday in October, with the changeover to occur at 2 a.m. local time.

During the "energy crisis" years, Congress enacted earlier starting dates for daylight time. In 1974, daylight time began on 6 January and in 1975 it began on 23 February. After those two years the starting date reverted back to the last Sunday in April. In 1986, a law was passed that shifted the starting date of daylight time to the first Sunday in April, beginning in 1987. The ending date of daylight time was not subject to such changes, and remained the last Sunday in October. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 changed both the starting and ending dates. Beginning in 2007, daylight time starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

Wow don’t you feel a tad bit smarter?!?!?!? HA, stop laughing I kind of did to tell you the truth!

FREE MUSIC MONDAY is always fun and very exciting! FREE TK cd’s all DAY long! I am currently checking out his new record and I have to say” “It Rocks!” You need to do a digital download of the record or go buy it at your LOCAL target or wallies for sure! The whole record is simply TOBY and I think its great this is what I think is his first record from his own record label, where he was able to do it his way all day and night. You can almost hear a different tone in his voice. For the longest time TK has always been one of the coolest country music superstars out there in the bizz, BUT it seemed he never tried anything different or tried to hit a high note that he might think would be out of reach! THIS RECORD is challenging for him and you can tell his hit the ‘turbos’ so to speak and let it all completely GO! I guess that old adage that simply states when you work for yourself you are not every really working. He nails that saying to the max! I still think, “She never cried in front of me” is on of his best yet! Also the bran-new cat country track ‘God Love Her’ simply puts a classic story into a modern day tell tail with a TK ring! His voice trashing thru the words seem to stand out a little more and the guitar licks, to be seem to be cutting edge! AGAIN go buy the TOBY record is worth it! The only COMPLAINT I had about this record was, the tracks are not numbered on the back of the cd so I got confused as to what track I was listening too. He went the HIP route and decided not to number his tracks and hey that’s cool with me, I just need to concentrate a little harder when I look at the album cover and rear of cd next time I listen! HAHAHAHA!
