According to the experts, you can't fake a smile. You may think you can, but it's a pretty hard thing to do if you know what to look for. Diane and I were talking about it this morning.
Everyone has two smiles, according to the article from the Wall Street Journal - a real smile and a fake smile.
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!"
As difficult as it will be to keep my kids contained at the dinner table on Halloween night, I want to make sure they eat something healthy before they tear into mounds of chocolates, caramels, bubble gum, lollipops, taffy, licorice, candy corn, toffee and, well, you get the idea. To accomplish such a task, I will have to get creative so I'm planning an enticing yet easy, frightful feast!
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.
It seems the first time I saw anybody do something really different with pumpkin carving for Halloween was on the old Roseanne show. The show featured incredible pumpkins carved to look like Frankenstein, Dracula, and a haunted house. They were very clever and looked terrific. I also remember reading about another pumpkin artist who used a laser to minutely carve amazing detail in his pumpkins.
Hope the storm didn't bring down any trees in your yard and you didn't lose power. While all the experts say it was a powerful storm (what did DJB call it, a "land bomb" ) it didn't affect me much - I SLEPT THRU IT.
This morning as the squall line slammed through the Tri-state, I was again impressed at the resources we have at WIKY to bring you the very latest observations and reports. Diane and I anchored the WIKY Morning Show with live reports from the WIKY Newsroom and the 14 First Alert Weather Center at WFIE-TV. (All three meteorologists were on duty this morning and each filed a live report on the progress of the storm).
If this weren't so sad, and so amazingly stupid, I'd laugh.
Have had a busy, busy few days. I hosted an event called "The Pink tie Gala", a fund raiser for the Komen for the cure foundation...met so many lovely listeners, and had a great time celebrating life! The event was coordinated by a brave soul named Susan Groves, and she did an excellent job organizing a beautiful event!
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!
