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."
A couple of stories made the rounds over the weekend that aren't related but have something in common -
Don't forget that this is the weekend we finally get our hour back from last Spring. Set your clocks back one hour Saturday night before you hit the sack.
As my wife Lora and I walked into the Walmart in Newburgh last night, we were greeted by a large, decorated Christmas tree inside the door. Really can't complain that it's too early, it's November after all, but it does force you to start thinking about what to buy as gifts this year.
We talked about it on the WIKY Morning Show. The Consumer Electronics Association’s holiday forecast is officially out:
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:
I hung around the newsroom last night helping with election coverage, and I know that many of you are SHOCKED! Yes, I am a political junkie and enjoyed every minute. After I got home, I started watching TV since the races in California and the West Coast were just getting decided, fell asleep in the recliner and woke up in a daze. So if I'm a little slow or lethargic Wednesday afternoon, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
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.
On the WIKY Morning Show today, we shared an item we found on-line about the facts and fiction about shampooing your hair -
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."
