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!


The Fair is So Close!

July 24, 2014

I am so excited!! This is my favorite time of the year! We get to hang out at the fair and give away prizes and broadcast live! It is the hardest we ever work here at KNCO- but it is the most fun! See you out there!


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……

I Said I Would Post it…………

July 17, 2014

Here is the cover for “Against All Odds” from The Postal Service. I think it sucks. Eric loves it…… tell us what you think!


Tacky Parody

Here’s a great parody of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” compliments of Weird Al:    


Great Parodies

July 14, 2014

I have seen many great parodies of some of the most popular songs on the radio and this one is no exception: A dad’s response to “Rude” by Magic.


Why am I Still Waiting for This Movie??

July 11, 2014

A couple of years ago, I saw a movie trailer for “Oz Great and Powerful” and I was DYING to see it! It looked amazing and the color was unbelievable (in the trailer) and found out that it was coming out 8 MONTHS LATER!!!!! Why must they torture me so? Same with “50 Shades of… read more


Living in a Small Town

July 10, 2014

I just read a story this morning about a dispatcher in Marysville who took a 911 call and realized the caller was her husband and the reason he was calling was that her son had just choked on a metal washer….. scary stuff. He ended up clearing his airway and the boy was fine. Which… read more


The Best of Friends

July 8, 2014

It seems that most of us have someone to take care of us- if we’re lucky- and I am lucky to have two of the best friends ever. It’s been a tumultuous couple of years and if it were not for them, I have no idea how I could have stayed afloat. They love me… read more


How Did It All Go So Fast?

June 3, 2014

People tell you when you have kids, “Don’t blink. They’ll be all grown up before you know it.” While in the throes of the terrible twos as they were throwing themselves on the floor at the store and screaming at the top of their lungs, or telling me that a science project is due while… read more


Europe, Here I Come!

February 7, 2014

I had a conversation with my best friend just after Christmas about our bucket lists. Places we’d like to go, things we’d like to do- and hers was a trip to Europe with me. AND she is paying for a trip for us to go. At first I was hesitant because that is a HUGE… read more


New Year’s Resolutions

December 26, 2013

I am not one for making New Year’s resolutions. It seems like an expectation that is a little difficult to live up to. If it was too hard to make happen all year long, what’s so magical about the begging of the year that is going to make it any easier? I guess it’s all… read more


Eddie T. Elf

December 24, 2013

When my kids were little, we used to take a drive and look at all the Christmas lights lighting up nearby neighborhoods. We would ooh and ahhhh over them all and pick our favorite house. My co-worker Phil was working on a list of all the best places to go and asked if we’ve gone… read more


Merry Christmas Everyone!

December 24, 2013

Christmas is a crazy time of year. All the shopping and wrapping and baking and and and……. It’s easy to lose sight of what it’s all about. I know I’m guilty. That moment of clarity comes about the middle of the day Christmas eve when everything is “almost” done- or done to the best of… read more
