The Most American Month

What's the most patriotic month?  Most would say July because of Independence Day.  Others might say May - Memorial Day remembers the ultimate sacrifice of service men and women in defense of our freedom.

I submit November as the most American of months.  Especially this November.  An election day on the 2nd, Veteran's Day on the 11th, and Thanksgiving on the 25th.  Three opportunities this month to celebrate America. 

Love Court

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."

I Hate Autumn

I hate Autumn and by that I mean, I love Autumn.  It's the most pleasant weather of the year.  But the days after Halloween, plunging headlong toward the big Fall and Winter holidays, grow shorter and shorter and become a constant deadline on squeezing in a few more warm season activities before we're locked inside for the Winter with the kids.

Trick or Treat Mayhem

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.

Happy Halloween

As I've said on the air this week, this is not one of my favorite holidays.  But I'm trying to get in the spirit.  Check out the video link on my page to see some pretty good Halloween pranks.

Things Your Trick or Treaters Never Tell You

A website recently compiled a few rules of thumb for trick or treaters and what's funny is that they still apply, no matter how many years it's been since you last went door to door on Halloween.

1. Old people are either very generous or give you one peanut. There is no in-between.

Can You Fake a Smile?

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.

Full Size Vs. Fun Size

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!"

A Frightful Feast

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!
