Another Oscar telecast is history, and while I didn't hate it as much as DJB did, I still long for the days when Billy Crystal was the host.  James Franco and Anne Hathaway did an "okay" job, but I really didn't have to see James Franco dressed up as Marilyn Monroe. Yikes!

We talked about "chore duty" on the show this morning and found out some illuminating information! If you think splitting the chores with your spouse 50-50 is going to make the resentment and inequality in your relationship magically disappear....that may not be the case.

According to a new book called "Spousonomics," couples who divide chores right down the middle can have as many issues as other couples.

A lot of people complain about the number of sequels that hog all the screens at movie theatres these days.  And if you're one of them, then I hate to tell you....it's going to be a bad year for you.  That's because there are 27 sequels flooding the marketplace.  And that's an all-time record. (The previous record was 23 in 2003.)  It also represents about one-fifth of all wide releases for the coming year!

Sunday night after the Grammy Awards, KCBS reporter Serene Branson was giving on on-air recap and her words were complete gibberish that were unintelligible.  Many people were concerned that she may have suffered a stroke on the air.  However, she was examined by paramedics at the scene and her vital signs were normal.  Some people were critical of her going home and not getting a second opinion.

We were discussing Valentine's Day on the show this morning and the how our spouses do little things that show us they love us.  In my case, I call it "DVR Love."

Here's the scoop: in case you somehow missed this.....I am a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan, while my hubby Jeff is a Chicago Bears fan.  First, we had a house-divided over the NFC Championship Game, which the Packers won. They then went on to win Super Bowl 45 last Sunday in Dallas.

I hope you'll join us on Saturday night at The Centre, when DJB, myself and Mark Elliott from the WIKY Afternoon Show will once again be a part of The Really Big Show to benefit The Evansville ARC. This year, we'll be celebrating radio from 1953, when the Evansville ARC was founded.....all the way through present day.  Plus, we'll have the "WARC Word" of the day and DJB and I will actually give away a great prize during the show!

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and if you're looking for something really cool to get your sweet baboo.....this is perfect!  On the show, we chatted with Fletcher Newburn from yournovel.com.

How would you like to star in your very own romance novel??  They have over 25 different plot scenarios for you to choose from, and the book can be as "mild" or "wild" as you want it to be!  They're even available as an E-book if that's what your honey wants.

If you're a long -time listener of the WIKY Morning Show, you'll know that I am a life-long Green Bay Packers fan. My husband, on the other hand, is a Chicago Bears fan.  With both teams playing for the NFC Championship this Sunday, Jeff and I are officially living in a divided house!  To make matters worse, Sunday is our wedding anniversary! This is going to be a very interesting week in my house.

This morning's Culture Quiz had to do with 34% of Americans refuse to decorate their homes for the Christmas season.

Obviously, these people don't fall into that percentage! Check out the video and be thankful you're not their neighbor!!

The night before Thanksgiving is the second biggest bar night of the year. It’s also the biggest pizza delivery night of the year. It’s all gearing up for the big get together tomorrow with friends and family.
 
I’d like to take a moment and give thanks to you for listening to and being a part of the WIKY Morning Show. We work hard at bringing you an easy to listen to and fun morning show every day of the year. Thanks so much for allowing us into your h

On the show this morning we brought up an interesting topic......is there anything other than dishes that you wash in your dishwasher?  My dad has washed his baseball hats in the dishwasher for years and swears by it!  He says they turn out just great, so who am I to argue with his logic?  It turns out that a lot of people are in agreement with my dad and keep their chapeaus clean the dishwasher way!

Tonight, one of my favorite shows on television is back...."Human Target" on FOX.  Is it a great show? Certainly not, but it's got cool characters, lots of action, is highly entertaining and has some major eye candy in the lead actor, Mark Valley!  Besides, I'm just sick to death of all the cop and "procedural" shows that are currently gumming up the primetime schedule!

In case you missed the news, Prince William and Kate Middleton are finally engaged!! After 8 years of will-they or won't-they, the supense is over and a Spring or Summer of 2011 wedding is expected.  I guess I'll have to stay up all night to watch this one, just like I did when Charles and Diana tied the knot!  Here's the complete story from People Magazine.

With Thanksgiving just over a week away, we decided to chat about some odd foods you've had at Thanksgiving.  We heard from lots of listeners about things like Saltine Cracker Stuffing, Circus Peanut Jello Salad (EWWW!) and Cheese and Pineapple Casserole.  We thought that sounded a bit odd, but plenty of people have tried it and love it.  So, I went online and found that even Paula Deen makes it, so it must be good.  Here's the recipe for you........and Happy Thanksgiving!

In our house, Jeff does most of the cooking, which is fine with me.  He's very creative in the kitchen, and like most creative types, he has his "routine" when he goes to the grocery store.  As a matter of fact, whenever we go to the store together, I get accused of stealing his "supermarket mojo."

Earlier this week, we had a Love Court entry about a first-date deal-breaker and it's generated another topic of conversation.  First Date Nightmares!

We had plenty of people call and email with horror stories about first dates gone  bad, but this has to be my favorite of them all.  Here's the email I got:

 Sometimes on the morning show, we'll share a story that is simply amazing.  This morning we had one of those stories.  Straight from the news wire, here it is:

 "A 15 month-old baby girl survived a fall from a seventh-floor apartment in Paris almost unscathed after bouncing off a cafe awning and into the arms of a passer-by.

The infant had been playing unsupervised with her four-year-old sister when she somehow fell out the window.

Occasionally on the morning show, we have a fun little feature we like to call "Love Court."  Someone writes in with a dilemma, and we all have "jury duty" to try and help them resolve whatever their issue is. It's always a lot of fun and the responses are insightful and some are downright hilarious!

This morning we talked about a first date "deal-breaker" for this young woman.  Her issue was her date pulled out a coupon to pay for dinner....on their very first date and for her it was a total "no-no."

Since we live on a dead-end street with only 7 houses on it, we don't get that many trick-or-treaters for Halloween.  So this year, I decided to go and hang out at my mom and dad's house and help give out candy.

Every year at Halloween comes the old debate over full-size candy bars vs. fun-size candy bars. Which is better?

In my humble opinion, there is nothing better than opening up your Trick-Or-Treat bag and seeing a great big FULL SIZE Snickers or Baby Ruth candy bar waiting!  As DJB said, "Fun Size is annoying size!"

My husband Jeff posted this video on his Facebook page and I just think this is a wonderful story!

Zach Beckman is a senior at Jasper High School who has Down's Syndrome.  He's been a loyal and valueable member of the football team for four years and his dream was to score a touchdown during a game.

Well, thanks to the generosity of the Mt. Vernon football team and their coach, Paul Maier, he was able to do just that. I had to grab the Kleenex about halfway through this video.

This morning we talked about Stewie, the Maine Coon Cat who measures over 4 feet in length!  He is now the biggest cat in the world according to the Guiness Book of World Records.

I guess I can never again call any of my cats "tubby" anymore!  Here'e the article with all of the details about Stewie, the gentle giant!

Every Friday morning on the WIKY Morning Show, we have a wonderful non-profit organization in the studio to hang out with us and tell us about the work they do and their upcoming event.  They get valueable air-time on WIKY, but there's a great big catch.....first they have to feed us a delicious breakfast!  Do we feel guilty about this?  Absolutely not!
