DEC 22

Greetings FELLOW BLOG peeps!

Have you guys ever heard that Classic Rock TUNE 'Stranded Caught in A Cross Fire."
I have totally figure out what that dude was singing about, AIRPORTS! Yesterday left for Denver to fly out for vacation and most places in the Great Northwest and back EAST are closed down due to horrible weather. I met three people from Denver that have been in the airport living since Friday night! Its nuts all over the country MOTHER NATURE could give a flying flip about the holidays it seems. So with a trusty do-it-all phone i type within the confines of the Denver International Airport! You now things could be worse, i found out form my new friends who i just met in the airport; Rick, Sammy and Laura that yesterday here in Denver a plane caught fire on the run-way. WOW! Everyone who was in the plane managed ot get out with no injurys just now major panic attacks for flying I suppose?

We are what three days from CHRISTMAS! With all this free time on my HANDS i have been a major GOOGLER! Watch out INFORMATION boy to your rescue read on please:

Emergency rations of Christmas turkey have been airlifted to UK troops in Afghanistan after the Taliban blew up a truck carrying supplies. The supply of frozen poultry was destroyed when insurgents hit a convoy carrying ammunition and supplies overland from Pakistan to the main British base in Helmand province. The attack put the tradition of Christmas lunch at risk for more than 5,000 UK troops stationed there -- until the Royal Air Force saved the day by flying in replacement supplies. On December 25, soldiers at Camp Bastion, the main British base, will sit down to 700 pounds of replacement turkey, 300 pounds of roast pork, 1,000 pounds of gammon (thigh of a hog) and 150 pounds of beef. SERIOUSLY can we like schedule our time to be at war, right after we eat some turkey?

C'mon how can I pass up letting you know about this, next piece. In fact i am one of those idiots thinking about doing the same thing, ha jut for fun of course with Jim West's credit card right?

TEXTING TO THE ALIENS _ Some in Britain are paying to have their text messages beamed into space. Hundreds of people are paying $15 to have their text beamed into the cosmos on radio waves using a giant satellite transmission dish. Users hope that because in space, radio waves travel forever, or until they hit a solid body like a star or a planet, the notes could be received by little green men. One user of the service said: "I am certain their are aliens out there, and by using this, who knows I might get lucky and my text could be the first thing from earth they see." If i can weasle Jim West's credit card away i will buy you all some texting time to Aliens, DEAL? Shussssh just don't tell JIM! :)


Movie audiences greeted Jim Carrey and Will Smith with a lukewarm "yes" as snowstorms undermined weekend debuts from both stars. Carrey's comedy "Yes Man" opened at No. 1 with $18.2 million in ticket sales, while Smith's drama "Seven Pounds" came in second with $16 million. Debuting at No. 3 with $10.5 million was the animated family flick "The Tale of Despereaux."

A Judge Dredd movie is in development. Not many details have been announced. The first, in 1995, starred Sylvester Stallone, Diane Lane, Rob Schneider, Armand Assante as the villain, and Max von Sydow as the Chief Justice.

A new Jack Ryan movie is in the works. The character, created by novelist Tom Clancy, has not appeared onscreen since 2002's The Sum of All Fears. The new Ryan film is planned as an origin story, not derived from Clancy's novels and ultimately featuring a new, younger star.

Well look at it this way if you had no time or money to see a flick last weekend check out whats new THIS THURSDAY! ( yes as in THIS WEEK!)

• Adam Sandler, Keri Russell, Guy Pearce, Russell Brand
• A family comedy about a hotel handyman whose life changes when the lavish bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew start to magically come true.

• Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett
• The story of Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences.

• Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson, Kathleen Turner, Eric Dane, Alan Arkin
• A family learns important life lessons from their adorable, but naughty and neurotic dog.

• Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes
• Rookie cop Denny Colt returns from the beyond as The Spirit, a hero whose mission is to fight against the bad forces in Central City.

• Tom Cruise, Kenneth Branagh, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson
• Based on actual events, a plot to assassinate Hitler is unfurled during the height of WWII.

• Meryl Streep, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams
• Set in 1964, Doubt centers on a nun who confronts a priest after suspecting him abusing a black student. He denies the charges, and much of the play's quick-fire dialog tackles themes of religion, morality and authority.

AND yes since we are all in love with MOVIES check out some just insane MOVIE STAR STATS:


Two of Hollywood's heavy hitters are back in theaters -- Jim Carrey and Will Smith -- and Tom Cruise is back on the big screen on Christmas day. Here's a look at who's had the most $100 million+ film hits in their career, including animated films but excluding cameos:

1. Tom Hanks – 15
2. Tom Cruise - 14
3. Eddie Murphy - 13
4. Harrison Ford and Will Smith – 12
6. Jim Carrey and Robin Williams – 11
8. Mel Gibson – 10
9. Matt Damon - 9
10. Jack Nicholson and Bruce Willis – 8

... Will Smith has done something unprecedented, a feat never done by the Toms -- Hanks and Cruise. Hancock was his eighth consecutive $100 million+ grossing blockbuster. Hanks and Cruise both had career-best streaks of 7 films topping $100 million.

NOW something from the WINGNUT BRAIN:


1. You believe in Santa Claus.

2. You don’t believe in Santa Claus.

3. You are Santa Claus.

4. You look like Santa Claus.

THIS is interesting do you fall into this catagorie?

(Redbook) So how are we going to "Deck The Halls" on Christmas:
• $9.3 billions, the estimated national sales of holiday decorations last year
• $20 is the amount the typical American household spent on seasonal decorations in 2006
• 269 feet is the height of the largest Christmas tree according to the Guinness Book of World Records'
• 25% of people purchased a live tree last year, according to a poll by the National Christmas Tree Association
• 25,000 lights on Clark Griswold's house in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation


The credit card firm Morgan Stanley recentrly conducted a poll to find out the most hated Christmas gifts, and coming in at #1 was cheap perfume: The top 10 most hated holiday gifts:
1. Cheap perfume
2. Handkerchiefs
3. Socks

DEC 18


2008 is nearly over are you ready for 2009?? I will give ya something to think about our great year of '08!!!

Here are the top 10 quotes of the year, according to the editor of the "Yale Book of Quotations":

1. "I can see Russia from my house!" --Comedian Tina Fey, while impersonating Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on the TV comedy show "Saturday Night Live," broadcast September 13.
2. "All of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years." --Palin, responding to a request by CBS anchor Katie Couric to name the newspapers or magazines she reads, broadcast October 1.
3. "We have sort of become a nation of whiners." --former Sen. Phil Gramm, an economic adviser to Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain, quoted in The Washington Times, July 10.
4. "It's not based on any particular data point, we just wanted to choose a really large number." --a Treasury Department spokeswoman explaining how the $700 billion number was chosen for the initial bailout, quoted on September 23.
5. "The fundamentals of America's economy are strong." --McCain, in an interview with Bloomberg TV, April 17.
6. "Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency." --the Treasury Department's proposed Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, September 2008.
7. "Maybe 100." --McCain, discussing in a town hall meeting in Derry, New Hampshire, how many years U.S. troops could remain in Iraq, January 3.

10. "There are no atheists in foxholes and there are no libertarians in financial crises." --Krugman, in an interview with Bill Maher on HBO's "Real Time," broadcast September 19.

OK I am being honest I watched Oprah, don't hate on me it was all that was on and to be honest with ya i found this topic interesting so i googled it check it out: ADD 30 YEARS to YOU LIFE?! C'mon this is not possible is it? HA you would be surprised!!! Is where I found this tid bit of info called: How long will you live? 70% of your longevity is determined by your lifestyle. So, in a way, you are in control of your destiny. Taken together, all of the following lifestyle changes will help you live as much as 30 years longer. Here are tips from Dr. Sanjay Gupta's book "Chasing Life," Dr. Thomas Perls' and
• 5 years: Don't smoke -- It's not cool to smoke. You smell, your teeth turn yellow, your skin looks like leather and your voice gets low and raspy. It also gives you lung cancer. Ick.
• 5 years: Eat power foods -- It's all about the antioxidants. Every day you should eat a handful of dark chocolate and almonds, as well as fruits, vegetables, garlic and even a glass of wine.
• 4 years: Skip the fast food -- Drive past the McDonald's and Wendy's without stopping and you'll live a lot longer since you're not ingesting all that fat and cholesterol.
• 3 years: Get moving -- Run for 30 minutes, five days a week and you can live up to four years longer. If you walk, you'll add three years.
• 3 years: Get married -- Numerous studies have shown that married people are happier and healthier. Why? They take care of each other. Face it, most men see a doctor because their wives made the appointment and told them to go.
• 3 years: Eat salmon twice a week -- Eating fatty fish that contains omega 3 fatty acids, such as wild salmon, herring, mackerel and sardines, not only appears to lower your risk of Alzheimer's disease, but also helps control triglyceride levels and inflammation.
• 3 years: Lose the fat -- You'll not only look and feel better, but you'll be healthier if you lose weight. Being overweight increases your risk of death by 20 to 40 percent. Now that's motivation!
• 3 years: Have sex -- Having sex two to three times a week helps you live longer by cutting in half your risk for heart disease and stroke. How? Sexual intercourse burns about 200 calories, which is the same as running for 30 minutes.
• 1 year: Floss daily -- The greatest benefit of regular flossing is healthy gums. Research has shown that gum inflammation is linked to heart disease. Keep your gums healthy and your heart may follow.


Lets talk about the COUNTRY MUSIC HOTTIE!

The People's Choice Awards says Carrie Underwood will perform at its 35th annual ceremony next month. The awards show, airing Jan. 7 on CBS, will be hosted by Queen Latifah at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, organizers said Wednesday. The People's Choice trophies go to fan favorites in TV, movies and music. Underwood went from "American Idol" winner to a country music star whose hits include "Just a Dream" and "Jesus, Take the Wheel." (Daily Record)

If you're like most people, you're watching the wallet a bit more closely these days. If you have a techie on your list, it makes sense to get the most bang for your buck.

Wireless Notebook Mouse. Stick in the accompanying USB plug and these mini-mice will work on almost any surface -- bed linen, couches, wooden tables. They are much easier to use than the mice built into laptops. Cost—about $20

Mini-notebook computers. A new class of laptop, minis are relatively inexpensive and easy to tote around. They are half the weight of a traditional laptop and have smaller screens. Mini-laptops are great for writing and surfing the Web, but lack the power and memory to handle intensive audio or video tasks. One complaint: some minis have cramped keyboards. Give them a test drive first. Cost—in the $400 range

LCD monitors. If you haven't replaced that big old box-like monitor hogging up precious real estate on your desk, buy an LCD. Luxurious 19-inch screens from top brands such as Dell and HP can be purchased for under $200 at Best Buy. Some 17-inch screens sell for less than $150.

Pocket camcorder. Shoot high-definition video with small cameras such as the Kodak Zi6 or the Flip Video Mino Series Camcorder, both $160. They are easy to carry around and simple to use. Video looks great on an HDTV and pocket camcorders provide an easy way to direct your own clips for sites like You Tube or My Space.

Satellite-navigation system. It's small and fast, with voice turn-by-turn directions and other nifty features. Less costly models also work well, but a feature that's worth paying for is voice directions. Cost—around $200

Universal remote. A device like the acclaimed Logitech Harmony One eliminates remote-control clutter. It connects to a computer for easy setup and can control virtually any electronics product ever made. With a push of just one button, Harmony One simultaneously turns on a TV, DVD player and receiver, adjusts the volume and starts a movie. Cost—about $200

Clock Radio. Replace that awful-sounding alarm clock with a new generation of dual-purpose devices that deliver great sound and wake you up. Most clock radios have two alarms for him and her. The Polk I-Sonic has an iPod dock and HD radio capability. It even "tags" music on the radio that you like and uplinks information to your iPod if you want to buy the song. Cost--$400

Powered speakers. The AudioEngine A5s deliver punchy bass and excellent overall sound. Hook them up to a computer or connect them to your iPod. Cost--$325

Earphones and headphones. You can pay hundreds of dollars for top-line plugs, but plenty of models deliver great sound at a great price. For in-ear versions, the Etymotic ER6i and Shure SE110 are good options at $80 each. For old-fashioned, over-the-ear headphones, the USA-made Grado SR80s ($95) cannot be beat.

Wireless music system. The Squeezebox Duet by Logitech makes it easy to listen to your music anywhere inside or even outside the house. Forget expensive wiring. Just connect a Wi-fi receiver to a stereo or powered speakers and gain immediate access to any music or CDs stored on your computer. Use the Duet to listen to popular Internet-radio services; listen to NPR podcasts; or even read RSS news feeds. Cost—between $300 and $400

Blu-ray player. Movie lovers with an HDTV can now watch high-definition movies in their full glory—and for a lot less money, since Blu-rays are coming down in price. Of course not every expert is sold on Blu-ray as a good investment in a bad economy. Most people just won't notice a significant difference between Blu-ray and DVD. Especially if they have a small TV, sit too far back or have poor eyesight. Cost—between $200 and $300

New-generation rechargeable batteries. They hold their power for much longer than older ones, which lost much of their power in a few months. Newer batteries keep a charge for up to a year. Cost--$15 or less

E-mail E-mail and mroe awesome listener E-mail!
I get a lot of jokes from it seems like billions of people, ok who am i kidding i have nearly 7 listeners right? This is from GLEN a friend of the show, he always has something to say and share! Check out his humor a bit:

A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him, "Father, I have a problem. I have two female parrots, but they only know how to say one thing." "What do they say?" the priest inquired. They say, "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?" "That's obscene!" the priest exclaimed; then he thought for a moment. "You know," he said, "I may have a solution to your problem? I have two male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the Bible. Bring your two parrots over to my house, and we'll put them in the cage with Frank and Jacob. My parrots can teach your parrots to pray and worship, and your parrots are sure to stop saying that phrase in no time." "Thank you," the woman responded, "This may very well be the solution." The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest's house. As he ushered her in, she saw that his two male parrots were inside their cage, holding rosary beads and praying. Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in with them. After a few minutes, the female parrots cried out in unison: "Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?" There was stunned silence. Shocked, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and exclaimed, "Put the beads away, Frank, our prayers have been answered."

I would love to post your JOKE please e-mail me right now!

C'mon i could not pass up this tid-bit of cool country information:

Bidding ends today (Wednesday) on items up for bid to benefit Project Paper Doll, an initiative that includes specially designed wooden dolls by KENNY CHESNEY, GEORGE STRAIT, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, KEITH URBAN and others to benefit Nashville’s Monroe Carell Jr. Research Hospital at Vanderbilt University. So far, the project has raised $15,000 from the auction with REBA MCENTIRE’s doll bringing in $3,500.

I have a buddy in Seattle who is a funny man, self proclaimed of course but this is my pal Tim's look on todays or yesterdays headlines, ok Tim no pressure make us LAUGH!

That guy who threw his shoes at President Bush in Iraq is in police custody. That's the difference between our two countries: there, when you disapprove of the politician, you throw your shoes at them. Here, you just give them a boot.

President Bush is back in the White House, after being attacked by that reporter over in Iraq. Gee, that just happened a few days and he's already back here. I think I've discovered the secret to getting our troops back home from Iraq: just have them attacked by people with shoes.

Blind groups are really upset at the portrayal of blind New York Governor David Patterson on "Saturday Night Live" last weekend. One group gathered and was protesting in front of Hong's One-Hour Photo, for whatever reason...

Arena Football is cancelling their 2009 season. So, the recession isn't ALL bad.

President Bush invited Miley Cyrus to the White House so that she could help light candles when "Hannikah Montanica" begins. He's getting out just barely in time...

In Florida, a pair of men are charged with armed burglary after allegedly entering a home and demanding... an eggbeater. What some people won't do to avoid cholesterol...

Tuesday 12-16

Tuesday is DVD and CD DAY!
More helpful information for you to shop with!


• Mamma Mia!
• The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
• Traitor (Don Cheadle)
• The Women (Meg Ryan)

New on Blu-ray
• Bottle Rocket
• Chungking Express
• Old School

• Petticoat Junction - Official Season 1
• Ice Road Truckers - Season 2

With the weather getting as ugly as your 5th cousin some great tips from GMAC I found check them out:


Unless you're planning on spending the next few months in Florida, odds are you'll have to deal with icy or snow-covered roads at some point. A recent survey (from GMAC) reveals just how little people know about winter driving.

Nearly half of those surveyed didn't know that the gas tank should be at least half full in order to continue providing heat in case of an emergency

38 percent didn't know driving while using cruise control, even in clear conditions, could be dangerous

24 percent did not know to turn the wheel in the direction of a skid

... Many of the biggest misconceptions come from those with four-wheel drive vehicles:

37 percent feel they are less likely to have an accident

21 percent would drive during and right after a snowstorm

3 percent would drive faster than they would with only two-wheel drive.

You know thinking about the Holiday Season, ponder this:

Think about it -- Christmas is a big warm, organized, fuzzy nuturing social deal and I have a tough time believing a guy could pull it off.
For starters, most men don't even think about selecting gifts until 3pm on Christmas Eve And once at the mall, they always seem surprised to find only Ronco products, socket wrench sets, and mood rings left on the shelves. On this count alone, I'm convinced Santa is a woman. Surely if he were a man, the universe would wake up Christmas morning to find a rotating Chia Pet under the tree, still in the bag.
Another problem for Santa would be getting there. First of all there would be no reindeer, because they would be dead, gutted, and strapped on to the rear bumper of the sleigh amid wide eyed, desparate claims that buck season had been extended. Blitzen's rack would already be on the way to the taxidermist.
Even if male Santa had reindeer, he'd still have transportation problems because he would inevitably get lost in the clouds and refuse to ask for directions.
Other reasons Santa can't possibly be a man:
• Men can't pack a bag
• Men would rather be dead than be caught wearing red velvet
• Men would feel their masculinity would be threatened, having to be seen with all those elves
• Men don't amswer their mail
• Men would refuse to allow their physique to be described even in jest as anything remotely resembling a "bowl full of jelly"
• Men aren't interested in stockings unless somebody's wearing them
• Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a committment
Is there any doubt Santa has to be a woman?

I found a new WEBSITE last night called WOW interesting Dr. Phill type stuff i was scanning thru, this might be helpful to some folks out there, mail me and let me know if this stuff makes sence or if it is just stuff we already know about:



Jumping to conclusions. Presuming that you know what your partner feels without first getting all the facts is a BAD idea. It's only going to push them away. So, if you think the reason your wife doesn't want to visit your in-laws is because she hates them – when in fact, she's intimidated by them – that's a big difference.

Tuning out instead of tuning in to what your mate's saying. When your mind begins to wander, stop and remember that what your partner is saying is important to them. Even if you don't agree – it means enough to them to warrant a discussion. So really hear them out.

Being repeatedly late. Frequently keeping your partner waiting isn't just inconsiderate - it's arrogant. Your time isn't any more important than theirs.

Playing the victim. "You always choose your mom's advice over mine!" This behavior not only accuses your spouse of hurting you, but it implies that they're doing it intentionally. Usually, that isn't the case.

Badmouthing your spouse behind their back. This tells others how little you respect your partner.

Thinking that doing something once is enough. If you stop making the mistakes we just discussed only for a little while – but then slip back into your old habits - you're teasing your partner with changing. You're also kidding yourself that you're committed to improving your marriage, when really you're not.

The new MOVIE the DAY The Earth Stood Still is out TONIGHT! Here is some interesting things I have found out about the BIG star in the MOVIE check it out for fun!


Keanu Reeves is back in theaters this weekend, in a remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Here are some things you may not have known about Keanu:

Born in Beirut in 1964, Keanu experienced a turbulent childhood, living in Australia, New York and Toronto with his English mother Patricia.

Keanu's first name is a Hawaiian word meaning "cool breeze over the mountains". His first agent wasn't too fond of the name, however, insisting that he be credited as K.C. Reeves.

Keanu was given the intimidating nickname 'The Wall' in high school due to his skills on the ice hockey rink.

An above-average musician, Keanu played bass for grunge band Dogstar in the '90s and more recently in a group called Becky.

Keanu almost missed out on starring in mega-blockbuster The Matrix. The role was initially offered to Will Smith and Nicolas Cage, who both turned the part down.

In order to get Al Pacino cast in The Devil's Advocate Keanu deferred his salary, allowing producers to come up with the cash for the Scarface star.

He's humble. Once, after landing on a Sexiest Film Stars list, Keanu told an interviewer, "I am not handsome or sexy."

Whew, now i feel better, right? Stuff we just had to know about the man...YAWN LOL

Can Thursday Be fun, heck yea!

Greetings fellow radio followers and web bloggers!!! Hey wait a sec is 'bloggers' spelled with one G or two? HA, never mind! Radio-time was fun today i yapped on about neato-cheato Christmas Facts check them out....they are just fun to bounce through with your eyes!


"Hot cockles" was a popular game at Christmas in medieval times. It was a game in which the other players took turns striking the blindfolded player, who had to guess the name of the person delivering each blow. "Hot cockles" was still a Christmas pastime until the Victorian era.

"White Christmas" (1954), starring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, was the first movie to be made in Vista Vision, a deep-focus process.

A traditional Christmas dinner in early England was the head of a pig prepared with mustard.

According to the National Christmas Tree Association, Americans buy 37.1 million real Christmas trees each year; 25 percent of them are from the nation's 5,000 choose-and-cut farms.

After "A Christmas Carol," Charles Dickens wrote several other Christmas stories, one each year, but none was as successful as the original.

Alabama was the first state to recognize Christmas as an official holiday. This tradition began in 1836.

Although many believe the Friday after Thanksgiving is the busiest shopping day of the year, it is not. It is the fifth to tenth busiest day. The Friday and Saturday before Christmas are the two busiest shopping days of the year.

An artificial spider and web are often included in the decorations on Ukrainian Christmas trees. A spider web found on Christmas morning is believed to bring good luck.

An average household in America will mail out 28 Christmas cards each year and see 28 eight cards return in their place.

Also stumped so many PEOPLE with the Wingnut Christmas Triva Challenge.
Please feel free as you read the questions and answers to holler out 'DOH!' as Homer Simpson would do, again these were a lot of fun and hard things to find on the net!


In Frosty the Snowman, who brought Frosty back to life? (Santa Claus)

Who lost $8,000 in It's a Wonderful Life? (Uncle Billy)

In How the Grinch Stole Christmas, what biological shortcoming made the Grinch so mean? (His heart was two sizes too small)

Who tells you she's in town by tap, tap, tappin' at your windowpane? (Suzy Snowflake)

What is the biggest selling Christmas single of all time? (White Christmas)

What was Scrooge's first name? (Ebenezer)

Where was I when I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus? (On the stairs)

What was the name of Rudolph's dogsled driving friend? (Yukon Cornelius)

Who said "God Bless Us, Every One!"? (Tiny Tim)

In The Night Before Christmas I sprang from my bed to see what? (What was the matter)

Name the three reindeer whose names begin with a "D"? (Dasher, Dancer, Donner)

In the song "Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer" what did Grandma go to get? (Her medication)

What was the first gift my true love sent on the sixth day of Christmas? (Six geese-a-laying)

In what city did Miracle on 34th Street take place? (New York)

(DO you have a favorite one? I loved the 'Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer one LOL)

I got a great little joke from Alan a friend of mine who e-mailed me at here it goes its clean but fun!! Alan you rock btw!

A young pretty female school teacher had been telling her class about the value of being observant and said, "Now children, look at this grandfather clock; what does the clock have that I have too?" One little girl stood up and said, "It has a face." Another girl raised her hand and said, "It has hands." "Wonderful," said the teacher. "Now what does the clock have that I don't?" After a long silence, a little boy rose and said, "I'm pretty sure you don't have a pendulum!"

AGAIN and AGAIN we say it but sometimes WE go a little too far! "We Love SPORTS!"
Take Heed!


A guide to watching football in public, from

[1] Thou Shalt Not Wear the Jersey of a Player Who Now Plays for a Division Rival.

A grown man wearing a sports jersey in public is questionable enough, but to have a guy who is now playing for a hated rival immortalized across your back is absolutely impermissible. This goes for all of you Dolphins fans with Wes Welker jerseys, Redskins fans with Antonio Pierce jerseys, and Bears fans with Bernard Berrian jerseys.

[2] Thou Shalt Not Cheer Alone.

Who doesn't love a good chant? It's one of the best reasons to go to a live sporting event -- a well-timed "De-FENSE" or "Let's Go Steelers" can even help turn the tide in a game. But when you're in a sports bar and no one else is joining in? Have some pride. There's nothing fun -- for you, or anyone else in the bar -- about being the only person slamming your fists against a table, chanting "J-E-T-S, JETS, JETS, JETS!"

[3] Thou Shalt Not Discuss Fantasy (or Gambling).

Nobody on Earth other than you, your bookie and the guy you're playing against in your fantasy league cares what bets and players you've got going on Sunday.

[4] Thou Shalt Not Quote ESPN.

As the Worldwide Leader slowly takes over the world, its various house organs spend hours brainwashing sports fans on Sunday with endless pregame shows, web columns, and gales of forced laughter. This means a ban on lame nicknames (i.e. Chris Berman's David "Green" Akers), quotes from Boogie Nights (Bill Simmons does this quite nicely already), and cogent analysis like "Eli Manning has been given the rice of passage." You wouldn't want Emmitt Smith to starve.

[5] Thou Shalt Not Protest the Refs Too Much.

There's nothing worse than a friend moaning about the calls all afternoon -- it's not like your complaints are going to overturn a call from three time zones away. How's this for a new rule? You are only allowed to yell about the refs three times during the game, with an unlimited amount of complaints in the final two minutes.

[6] Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk.

For those of you who lack any social skills this means: Don't curse in front of children. Don't send your food back to the kitchen three times. Don't leave the bar before your table gets the bill. Don't shave your team's logo into in your head. Don't bring your grad school books and study. Don't bring a home-made sign. Don't paint your face. And most importantly, don't bring a loaded gun and shoot yourself in the leg.

YES it makes perfect sense, do not look at me like that! LOL

This man topic lead to even more fun...ladies do you agree? Please read on just to make sure....


The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.

Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.

A dog's parents never visit.

Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.

You never have to wait for a dog; they're ready to go 24 hours a day.

Dogs find you amusing when you're drunk.

Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.

A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, “If I died, would you get another dog?”

A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.

If a dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad. They just think it's interesting.

Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck.

If a dog leaves, it won't take half of your stuff.

Do not forget some must watch TV this weekend!!!!!!

ALAN JACKSON becomes the third artist to be recognized in the Country Music Television series CMT Giants when he appears tomorrow night (Saturday, 8p ET). The show was taped at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium back in October and will include performances by GEORGE STRAIT, BRAD PAISLEY, TAYLOR SWIFT, LEE ANN WOMACK, DIERKS BENTLEY and MIRANDA LAMBERT among others. Alan follows REBA MCENTIRE and HANK WILLIAMS JR. as CMT Giants. VERY GOOD TV!

Also Jimmy Carter had a story on Miss Dixie Chick...check this out:
DIXIE CHICKS lead singer Natalie Maines is being sued for defamation by the stepfather of a murdered child. Terry Hobbs claims Natalie alleged he was involved in the killings of three young boys, including his stepson, in west Memphis, Arkansas, in 1993, although three other men were arrested and imprisoned. Last year, Natalie took part in a rally in Little Rock (Arkansas) and wrote extensively on the trio’s website about the case. All the band members are named in the lawsuit, but Hobbs focuses mainly on Natalie. The same evidence Natalie presented in her writings is also noted in papers by lawyers seeking to overturn the conviction of the men sometimes known as the West Memphis Three.

OUCH sometimes keeping out of the fire, is the best thing to do? TRUST me we call could do a little less of that, do you agree?

More Sleep Can we HAVE SOME?

Greetings Thursday going down right now as i speak, the snow has hit the SPRINGS!

I went to bed last night, already thinking about and calculating how many hours i would get for tomorrow. Have you done this before? I talked this morning about getting more SHUT-EYE. Here are some MOST excellent ways of making this happen i had to share. I researched a billion articles and found us, or most of us, early risers some answers!

For most of us, we don't get enough sleep as is. So, if you had the chance to put something in your mouth to make you even MORE sleep deprived, would you do it? Of course not, but the fact is – you probably do it every day, without even knowing it. Here are a few things to steer clear of if you want a good night's sleep.

• Put down the burger and fries! Researchers in Brazil found that the more fat you eat throughout the day, the more likely you are to wake up throughout the night, tossing and turning. Also, eating fatty foods leads to a greater chance of abnormal breathing while you snooze and it cuts the amount of REM sleep you get. This sleep helps restore your body after a long day. So the more you get, the more energetic you'll feel the following day.

• Hidden caffeine. It's no surprise that an evening cup of coffee might keep you up, but don't forget about less obvious caffeine sources. Chocolate, cola, tea and decaffeinated coffee, which still contains trace amounts of caffeine, can also disrupt your sleep. If you really want a good night's rest, cut all caffeine from your diet after noon each day. Also, you need to watch out for certain medications. Some prescription and over-the-counter drugs contain caffeine, such as pain relievers, weight loss pills, diuretics and cold medicines.

• A heavy dinner. Lying down with a full belly can make you uncomfortable - since the digestive system slows down when you sleep. If you don't want to toss and turn, make sure to finish a heavy meal at least four hours before bedtime and keep protein to a minimum! Protein-rich foods are harder to digest and they contain the amino acid tyrosine, which can help kick your brain into overdrive when you're trying to wind down.

Now the trick is, following some of these ideas and making them stick to our normal routine, right?

YESTERDAY watching the local news, most things on now-a-days is very negative! Have you noticed? They always tell us how bad it is but never how to fix things, i just can't stand some of these news TV people blabbing on about how we are all doomed. Here is an IDEA, "Shut up!" LOL i mean seriously didn't you learn anthing from your mother? If you do not have something nice to say, then keep it zipped. I have some ideas, so do not let the next line in the following paragraph scare you please, read on.....

So we heard this week that we're officially in a recession -- and have been for a year. No surprise. But as most things turn downward, we're paying attention to some trends that are moving upward. Here are a few things that are up in a down economy:

Cheap food -- Spam is expected to reap some serious profits this year. According to the New York Times, it’s boom times at the Hormel Foods Corporation that manufactures the canned recession-proof meat. Factory workers are racking up overtime working seven days a week to keep up with demand. Other comfort foods that offer comfort to a marketer’s budget are also up so many Americans may be looking to incorporate macaroni and cheese, Jell-O, and Kool-Aid into their Christmas dinners.

Old habits -- New Year’s resolutions are still a month away but it looks like more Americans will be promising to kick the smoking habit come January 1. A recent survey by the American Legacy Foundation found that some former smokers report they are starting to smoke again because of stress over the financial situation. And many current smokers are smoking more on a daily basis.

Second-hand merchandise -- It might be cold outside but yard sales are heating up. While it’s slightly awkward to pick over old books and mismatched dinnerware in your coat and mittens, in some places the yard sale season is stretching well beyond the summer months as shoppers look for deals and sellers hope for extra cash. And though most other commercial retailers are facing a slump in sales, profits are up at Goodwill centers which offer more value than discount stores to desperate customers.

Career alternatives -- A financial crisis might be just the excuse some people need to invest in their educations. Business schools are expecting record levels of interest for next fall’s entering class. Those MBA applicants may have been advised that no matter what happens with the job market in the next two years, more education will lead to more employment opportunities. And military officials think the recent rise in military recruitment comes from the same pool of workers looking for alternatives.

Shared living spaces -- You may have shared a house with a dozen other co-eds in your college days but now many Americans from Louisiana to California faced with the challenge of keeping their homes are now renting out spare rooms or bunking up with tenants.


Donating to a food bank this holiday season? Here are four of the best things to consider giving:

• Proteins. Canned meats such as tuna, chicken or fish are high in protein and low in saturated fat and peanut butter is rich in protein and high in the monounsaturated "good fat." Unfortunately, these foods are too expensive for food banks to buy in large quantities.

• Soups and stews. They're filling, contain liquid for hydration, and they're often filled with protein and vegetables.

• Cereal, including oatmeal. Most cereals today include a variety of vitamins and minerals.

• Canned fruits. Only a small amount of vitamin C is lost in the canning process, making these a healthy choice.

There see it can be done NEWS TV PEOPLE! You can mention some bad news, but have some options or ideas ready to fix the bad stuff. If you guys have any other ideas please feel free to share...

X-mas LIGHT now or never


DO you have your lights up? All around the Springs lights are going up in a big way. I am debating on when i should shoot mine up yet?

We crowned the Goin' Grisswald light winner the other day. The posting is on

And i cam across this on the web about a man and his lights!!

100,000 XMAS LIGHTS _ Scott Loftus has one of the biggest private animated light displays in Illinois, and it’s all in his own yard. With about 100,000 lights, the animated display at in Sherman, Illinois, is set up so the lights blink in time with a 43-minute, nine-song loop that is synchronized through a computer program. Loftus’ love for Christmas decorations began about 17 years ago, when he would decorate his mother’s apartment balcony with 500 to 600 lights. When Loftus and his mother later moved into a house, his self-proclaimed “craze” for illuminated devices truly took hold. Loftus and a neighbor would hold competitions each year to see who could put up the most lights, with Loftus eventually using about 2,000 of them in a display.

... Loftus’s 100,000-light spectacular is on display from Thanksgiving until a few days after Christmas, though he says he thinks and plans all year long and begins work around November 1 each year.

That's just a man with too much holiday cheer?

Also I have a ton of stuff on my Comcast DVR including yes American Idol, found something strange about SIMON on there as well check this out, and yes i need to clean some of those old shows off MY DVR!

Simon Cowell is reportedly considering increasing security after a sophisticated bug was found on the undercarriage of his car. The music mogul was said to be "completely freaked out" after the device was discovered. Cowell asked his security team to search the Bentley Continental after noticing that a leather-clad biker frequently turned up wherever he was. A source says Simon "has his suspicions as to who is responsible." Earlier this year, auditions for Britain's Got Talent had to be halted when a similar device was found in the green room of the Palace Theatre in Manchester, England.

Another SIMON tid-bit: Simon Cowell has offered a sneak-peek assessment of the next season of American Idol, saying, "One hundred percent a guy will win this year." As for new judge Kara DioGuardi, Cowell commented, "She's mouthy ... I'm beginning to warm to her. ... I think she knows what she's talking about."

Interesting right? More stuff to come
