In case you missed the news, Prince William and Kate Middleton are finally engaged!! After 8 years of will-they or won't-they, the supense is over and a Spring or Summer of 2011 wedding is expected. I guess I'll have to stay up all night to watch this one, just like I did when Charles and Diana tied the knot! Here's the complete story from People Magazine.
With Thanksgiving just over a week away, we decided to chat about some odd foods you've had at Thanksgiving. We heard from lots of listeners about things like Saltine Cracker Stuffing, Circus Peanut Jello Salad (EWWW!) and Cheese and Pineapple Casserole. We thought that sounded a bit odd, but plenty of people have tried it and love it. So, I went online and found that even Paula Deen makes it, so it must be good. Here's the recipe for you........and Happy Thanksgiving!
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."
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:
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.
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."
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.
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!"
My husband Jeff posted this video on his Facebook page and I just think this is a wonderful story!
Zach Beckman is a senior at Jasper High School who has Down's Syndrome. He's been a loyal and valueable member of the football team for four years and his dream was to score a touchdown during a game.
Well, thanks to the generosity of the Mt. Vernon football team and their coach, Paul Maier, he was able to do just that. I had to grab the Kleenex about halfway through this video.
