Fruit Hangover

On the WIKY Morning Show we had a discussion on home remedies.  It started with the old belief that an onion will absorb all the evils in the air including cold and flu viruses.  That's been around since the 1500s.  Yes, that long even though there's no evidence that it works.  Actually, it doesn't even make sense to me.  An onion?  Really?  However, one that appears to have some benefit is the consumption of gin soaked golden raisins for arthritis relief.  Our pal Charlie has done it for a while and he says he feels a difference.  Lot of listene

Christmas with Attitude

I believe the "Happy Holidays rather than Merry Christmas" politically correct thing is a completely manufactured problem.  For years I was blissfully unaware that saying Merry Christmas was offending anyone.  Why?  Because I've never encountered anyone who was offended by it.  And what's wrong the phrase "Happy Holidays?"  It's always been a nice way to give blanket greetings at the end of the year for all the goodwill the big three - Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day - have come to represent.

21 Thanksgiving Thoughts

Whatever plans you have, I hope Thanksgiving is a special time for you. Eat too much. Sleep a lot. Hold your tongue around the relatives.

Give thanks. Think. Pray. Question everything, for therein lies the path to understanding. But know that you will never completely understand, and therein lies the path to faith. Reflect on the days you were cold, and those times that your soul felt barren.

Perhaps more than just this little girl feel this way.

Yet Another Mystery Solved!

We received a number of calls Monday morning from folk north and west of Evansville who wanted to know what the loud booms were Saturday evening - a rolling thunder type of sound coming from the north.  Well, it was a private fireworks show.  A family near Haubstadt out by the St James area with plenty of acreage and a lake put on a fireworks show every year for the Fourth of July for friends and neighbors.  Since it was too dry on July 4 to set ‘em off, they decided to do it Saturday night.  About 200 folks were there and if you heard the distant “thunder” it was their

Now this sounds like a good time!
