What is it with Boys?

September 19, 2014

My son recently completely transformed from a boy to a young man- and it seemed to have happened overnight. Or at least over the summer. I watched him play football last night and was amazed that he was the same kid from last year. He’s much taller, slimmer and seems to have more confidence. And… read more

Loving This Rain!

September 18, 2014

Fall is my favorite time of the year and this morning it feels like it’s coming and I am SO happy! Unfortunately it’s only going to stick around today, so I’ll enjoy it while I can. I would love to see it stick around for a little while longer and help out with the fire… read more

WHEW! It’s a Busy Summer!

September 17, 2014

We have SO MUCH going on in the next few weeks here at Star 94 FM! So much, in fact, I had to buy a new calendar to fit it all in! All the rest of this week we’ll be giving away tickets for the Drafthorse Classic- and of course, the show is this weekend…. read more

Where Were You?

September 12, 2014

I remember where I was on that September day….. I was living in Hawaii on Schofield Barracks- the Army base on Oahu. My husband was in the Army and it was 5 AM when the second plane hit the tower. The phone rang and I stumbled for the phone, with my brother on the other… read more

Maroon V’s New Album V

September 10, 2014

I got it! And I am sooooo excited! Greg, knowing I’m a huge fan- got it for me. I have to admit, I was not a huge fan of Overexposed- there were a couple of good songs on it, but I was not a fan of the rest of it. It was too poppy and… read more

Barefoot in the Park

September 9, 2014

I went Saturday night to the gala event for Legacy Productions’ “Barefoot in the Park”  at the Nevada Theater and I can’t rave enough about it. It was funny and quirky and wonderful! I have seen the last couple of Legacy shows and they really know how to put on a good show! Sue Legate… read more

Hollywood Funny Lady Dies at 81

September 4, 2014

I just found out that Joan Rivers didn’t quite make it through her ordeal like we thought this morning. She seemed to have so much life for being 81 years old. I wasn’t a huge fan, I didn’t watch her show, I remember some of her hysterical one liners and her shock value comedy. I… read more

Texting Parents

September 3, 2014

One of my favorite things to do when I’m bored is to check out the sites where I find texting fails by parents. What’s even better are the funny ones because the parents are clever. Sometimes I think I’m awful mother for saying some of the things that I say to my kids- all in… read more

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

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
