This week on the WIKY Morning Show we discussed a new study that found the ancients had it wrong. Thanks to a typo, you’ve been assigned the wrong Astrological sign. Well, not so fast.  Thanks to WIKY loyal listener Ralph Merkley who ran across this from CNN.com –

Huge news in the world of astrology that Diane and I were talking about on the WIKY Morning Show.
 
Astronomers took the zodiac and adapted it based on the way the Earth's axis was shifted during the Babylonian period, when the original astrological charts were created. The scientists found that all of the dates when the sun is in each zodiac constellation's "house" have changed!
 
So, if you want to

We’ve all watched prison movies where cigarettes are the currency of choice among inmates. Well, now that so many people have quit smoking, including inmates, cigarettes have lost their value as currency.

On the Friday before Thanksgiving you may remember me mentioning that it was the last day of 2010.  Diane scoffed, listeners scolded, and even my family said I was nuts.  But I still think I was right.  Here we are, well over a month later, and schedules and routines still aren't back on track.  And won't be until the Monday after MLK day in a couple of weeks.

We've been trying to get to our annual list of favorite Christmas movies for the last couple of days but due to the weather, we haven't had the time.  But it looks like we'll be able to get to it in the morning between winter storms.

It wasn't that 3.3 inches of snow, the official total yesterday, was such a big deal, it was more that it was the first snow of the season.  That always throws us into a spin, usually along I-164 somewhere.  But since most schools cancelled classes the night before, it actually went pretty smoothly for most of Monday morning.

A few weeks ago on the WIKY Morning Show, we talked about some of the hottest gifts this Christmas and ebooks really look like they're set for a big year but lots of question linger about what's best for them.  Amy Mangold of the Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library visited the show yesterday with news of an exciting event.  Tonight, December 8, 6:30 at the Central Library, EVPL will conduct a "Meet the E-readers" party.  There will be a number of available devices to try out and compare.  Plus, it's free!

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!!

We had a very interesting discussion on the WIKY Morning Show about the misconceptions of common Christmas legends.
 
First, the candy cane – you may have heard the story or read the email making the rounds for years about how an Indiana candy maker designed the candy cane to represent the story of Jesus.  Some think of the candy cane as a shepherd’s crook but the story goes that the candy maker made it a “J” for Jesus.

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.

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!

One of the hottest gift items for grown-ups again this Christmas will be an e-reader. If you’re not familiar with these devices, it’s basically an electronic book. You can download complete books from a variety of sources including the library. There are thousands of titles for free and thousands of others for pocket change. It sounds like a great idea and I might even use one if it were a gift. But, I’m just an old book kind of guy and not sure I could get used to reading on one of these contraptions. I like the feel o

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!

This morning we found ourselves scratching our heads over the fact that Thanksgiving is just over a week away.  Not sure how that happened, considering we just put away our flip-flops, but there it is.

Here are a few Thanksgiving food myths that we discussed this morning on WIKY -

Plenty of contestants on the WIKY Morning Show's Culture Quiz mention that they're bowling when we ask them on the phone what they're doing.  This has led to a number of questions from confused, and some downright angry listeners, about how it is that so many people are getting through from this mysterious bowling alley.
