Gas prices have shot up! I think they are up almost 70 cents since the unrest in the Middle East has begun. But I saw something on the pump at Thornton's the other day that actually saved me money today. They have a "Thornton's Gas Alert" text message system that I signed up for, and I got a text message this morning (Weds.) that said prices were going up today. I filled up at 3.39 and by lunchtime, prices were 3.49!!!!
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!
I have been talking about Winter Jam a lot on the show recently. I am very excited about it and I hope you are too! However, in order to bring a huge tour like Winter Jam to Evansville, a lot of help is needed. We are in need of 65 volunteers to help the day of the show. Some jobs may include selling merchandise, tickets, money collecting and other tasks. If your interested you will need to be at Robert's Stadium at 4:30 pm on Thursday, March 24th and work until 10 or 11 pm that night.
I knew about Roberts Stadium long before I ever set foot inside. As a youngster, I used to read about the EC Aces (it was Evansville College then) and see the newspaper photos of the games, and what looked to be dozens upon dozens of rows upon rows of seating. Later, when my parents were tolerant, or already asleep, I would stay up late when the games were televised on delay, watch in palyers wearing those jerseys with the sleeves (beyond cool).
My heart is breaking for the people in New Zealand, and also around the world with fighting and so many being killed...please pray for survivors to be found and rescued quickly from the New Zealand earthquake. I'm praying especially for any children that are trapped and terrified, that God will send angels to comfort them and that they would be rescued...
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!
For years, among the biggest secrets in the world has famously been the formula for Coca-Cola. It's up there with the secret recipe for KFC, where the government is keeping the aliens, and what happened to Jimmy Hoffa (who is not buried in the endzone at Giants stadium, Mythbusters proved that).
