We found this item absolutely fascinating! It seems as a woman, no matter how much you think it will never happen to you, one day you're going to wake up and realize you've turned into your mother! And a new survey has tried to pinpoint exactly when that's going to happen.
Well, the folks at Hallmark surveyed a bunch of people and it turns out that the average age a woman turns into her mother is 32! Seriously?!
If you’re a long-time listener of the WIKY Morning Show, you know that I’m a huge Doris Day fan. I am also a big Elizabeth Taylor fan, so the news of her passing left me a bit sad.
A couple of weeks ago, my mom and I went to see the movie "Blue Valentine," starring Michelle Williams and Ryan Gossling. Michelle Williams had been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar, so we wanted to check it out. Well, about halfway through the film, we looked at each other and decided to leave.
This morning on the show we discussed those DVDs or VHS tapes that you may be embarassed to admit you own. I had so many to choose from, but here are the two that made the cut (so to speak)!
Another Oscar telecast is history, and while I didn't hate it as much as DJB did, I still long for the days when Billy Crystal was the host. James Franco and Anne Hathaway did an "okay" job, but I really didn't have to see James Franco dressed up as Marilyn Monroe. Yikes!
We talked about "chore duty" on the show this morning and found out some illuminating information! If you think splitting the chores with your spouse 50-50 is going to make the resentment and inequality in your relationship magically disappear....that may not be the case.
According to a new book called "Spousonomics," couples who divide chores right down the middle can have as many issues as other couples.
A lot of people complain about the number of sequels that hog all the screens at movie theatres these days. And if you're one of them, then I hate to tell you....it's going to be a bad year for you. That's because there are 27 sequels flooding the marketplace. And that's an all-time record. (The previous record was 23 in 2003.) It also represents about one-fifth of all wide releases for the coming year!
Sunday night after the Grammy Awards, KCBS reporter Serene Branson was giving on on-air recap and her words were complete gibberish that were unintelligible. Many people were concerned that she may have suffered a stroke on the air. However, she was examined by paramedics at the scene and her vital signs were normal. Some people were critical of her going home and not getting a second opinion.
We were discussing Valentine's Day on the show this morning and the how our spouses do little things that show us they love us. In my case, I call it "DVR Love."
Here's the scoop: in case you somehow missed this.....I am a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan, while my hubby Jeff is a Chicago Bears fan. First, we had a house-divided over the NFC Championship Game, which the Packers won. They then went on to win Super Bowl 45 last Sunday in Dallas.
I hope you'll join us on Saturday night at The Centre, when DJB, myself and Mark Elliott from the WIKY Afternoon Show will once again be a part of The Really Big Show to benefit The Evansville ARC. This year, we'll be celebrating radio from 1953, when the Evansville ARC was founded.....all the way through present day. Plus, we'll have the "WARC Word" of the day and DJB and I will actually give away a great prize during the show!
