The other day on the show, we were talking about foods that take you back to childhood and I ended up posting a blog about it on Facebook. A very dear friend of mine remembered bringing "mass quantities of Corn Toasties" when they would come and visit us in Ohio.
Occasionally on the WIKY Morning Show, a subject will come up where the reaction takes me totally by surprise. This morning, I mentioned that my wife needed a replacement part for one that had broken. She had the option of buying the part on-line or buying it from a local merchant.
