I Got a New Job!

August 27, 2014

Don’t worry, or jump for joy. I’m still going to be here. It’s just the rest of my days that are going to change. I’ll still be doing the morning show as usual, but for the rest of the day, instead of sales, I’ll be doing promotions for both KNCO and Star 94FM. I am… read more

Community Involvement

August 26, 2014

This is the most caring community I’ve ever know. We hear about a child who is sick, someone inevitably puts together a fundraiser. We need to build a homeless shelter, the community pulls together to make it happen. We have literally thousands of non-profit groups between Grass Valley and Nevada City doing good for others…. read more

Students Invent NailPolish to Detect Date Rape Drug

August 25, 2014

I read an article today about some very smart boys at North Carolina State University who are working on a nail polish that will detect the date rape drug in drinks by discreetly dipping their finger in their drinks to test them. These boys are brilliant and were raised right! Check out the story with… read more

I Was Called Out

August 21, 2014

I was scrolling through my facebook page last night and came across this young guy who was called out to do the ice bucket challenge. It turned out that he is all too familiar with the disease as his grandmother had died from it, his mother is currently struggling with it, and he, himself has… read more

Trying Out Healthier Living

August 20, 2014

So in the last 4 years, I have had my gallbladder removed, gone through a divorce, started smoking again (after quitting for 10 years) quit again and gained probably 40 lbs. in the process.  I feel like a slug, I have no energy at all- and really would like to get healthy again. I’m not… read more

Haven’t I Seen This Dress at the Car Wash?

August 18, 2014

I saw Heide Klum’s dress for the Creative Arts Emmys. I have to give her credit, it’s like nothing I’ve seen before…   http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/17/heidi-klum-creative-arts-emmy-awards_n_5685655.html

How Are My Kids So Old?!

August 13, 2014

My kids both started school today. My daughter is a senior and my son in a freshman and I want them to stay right here forever. Mariya is figuring out her life at this point- what she wants to be, what her plans are when she grows up AT THE END OF THIS YEAR!! She… read more

Thank God for Second Chances!

August 12, 2014

I’m dating a nice guy. He is very sweet. He pursued me in high school and somehow (and I really can’t see why now) he was friend-zoned. He became my best friend. Talking me off the ledges, driving me back and forth from the airport when I was living out of the state…. We went on… read more

Robin Williams

August 11, 2014

I saw an article about the death of an actor from another era that I’d never heard of the other day, and I thought, “How weird will it be when legends from our era begin to die off?”   I never expected it to begin so soon…. I remember Robin Williams in my youngest days… read more

Visions of New Games for Kids’ Day

August 8, 2014

I hosted the Kids’ Games at the Nevada County Fair yesterday for the millionth time and had an epiphany as I watched the small kids struggle with game clearly meant for older kids-and the faces of the bored parents who’ve been good sports and brought their kids year after year for the SAME OLD games…….. read more

Jeff Goldblum T-Rex Wedding Photo

August 7, 2014

There are several things that can make or break your wedding. You have to have a good D.J.- you don’t realize how prevalent a role they play- and a creative photographer. Jeff Goldblum recently attended a wedding where the wedding party was running from a T-Rex (which is very appropriate since he played in “Jurassic… read more

Did I Mention That I am SO EXCITED for the Fair?

July 31, 2014

The Fair is  getting closer. It’s the last weekend before the fair and I can almost smell the corndogs. See all the lights and hear the kids screaming from the rides. I might even be looking forward to the dirt lines on my feet (okay, probably not). Today I’ll be shopping for the prizes for… read more

Are They Really Calling THIS Art?

July 30, 2014

I was perusing Facebook last night before going to bed  and saw the most ridiculous thing ever- and they were calling it “art.” It was a hipster guy on a leash, followed by a Chinese artist on a Segue. I think the term “art” has become entirely too loose. When I think of art, I… read more

River Time!

July 29, 2014

This is my preferred spot on summer evenings. It’s a great end to most days when it gets over 90. I have no air conditioning. And while I’m happy not to pay the electric bill, some days it would be really nice to have. However, I wouldn’t have as many days to enjoy at the… read more

Where Did the Summer Go?

July 28, 2014

I am very excited about the fair. It’s something I look forward to every year… but it also marks the end of the summer and the beginning of the school year. I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone! It seems like just a couple of weeks since we worked on the graduation party…… read more

Hilarious Jimmy Fallon vs. Channing Tatum

July 25, 2014

Greg and I talked about Jimmy Fallon arm wrestling and the trash talk- you absolutely must watch- if not for the comedy- it’s Channing Tatum flexing his muscles…. Enjoy!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEUzLSBQG2w

Tim McGraw Fan Slap

July 23, 2014

I heard that this was “no big deal”,  of course that came from Tim McGraw’s people. But as he’s strutting down the catwalk amongst fans, one woman reaches out and  grabs his pant leg- and he clobbers her on the side of the head. Watch the video here…… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaDdhZ599lA
