I FORGOT TO DO IT ——OR DID I ?

 

WHY DO TODAY WHAT YOU CAN PUT OFF UNTIL TOMORROW!

 I admit I am a bit of a procrastinator.  I even thought about doing this as a blog subject last week but put it off until today.

So why do we procrastinate I found this in Phycology today.  I have edited some of the information, because hey it was written by a Psychiatrist and they use big words.

By Hara Estroff Marano, published July 1, 2005 –

Twenty percent of people identify themselves as chronic procrastinators. For them procrastination is a lifestyle, it cuts across all domains of their life. They don’t pay bills on time. They miss opportunities for buying tickets to concerts. They don’t cash gift certificates or checks. They leave their Christmas shopping until Christmas Eve

Procrastinators tell lies to themselves. Such as, “I’ll feel more like doing this tomorrow.” Or “I work best under pressure.”  Another big lie procrastinators indulge is that time pressure makes them more creative. Unfortunately they do not turn out to be more creative; they only feel that way. They squander their resources avoiding.

Procrastinators actively look for distractions, particularly ones that don’t take a lot of commitment on their part. Checking e-mail is almost perfect for this purpose.

People procrastinate for different reasons.

Arousal types, or thrill-seekers, who wait to the last minute for the euphoric rush.

  • Avoiders, who may be avoiding fear of failure or even fear of success, but in either case are very concerned with what others think of them; they would rather have others think they lack effort than ability.
  • Decisional procrastinators, who cannot make a decision. Not making a decision absolves procrastinators of responsibility for the outcome of events.

The article ends with this basic bit of advice

 Procrastinators can change their behavior.

That gives me hope I will change my behavior!!!!!!! Starting tomorrow.

Here are some things we put off

Odd jobs around the house.  Going to the doctor.  Bills

That need to be paid.  .  Making a budget, or reviewing

Your finances.

I LOVE BASEBALL

Growing up I tried to play baseball but I lacked something.

 TALENT! 

I was big and slow, I could throw the ball far but not accurate. So I went to bench or deep right field.  I was not good.

Today is the opening day for Major Lesage Baseball and no this blog will not be about my love of the St Louis Cardinals (but that is my team).  Today’s blog is all about why I think baseball is such a great sport.

First hitting a major league baseball pitch is so difficult that if you get a hit 3 out of 10 tries you are a star player.

Second fundamentals.  I know fundamentals are important in all sports, but in baseball you have so many players that have to have good fundamentals to be able to put yourself in a winning position.   On defense, not only do you have to field or catch the ball with good fundamentals then you have to be able to throw to the correct base or hit the cutoff man or do you hold the ball and run it into the infield.   Those are all fundamentals and if you watch baseball even major league players struggle with fundamentals at times.

Third the stratagem of the game. The players at bat and the players on the field need to understand the strategy of the game.  That is why the manager and the coaches play such an important role.  There are so many little things to think about and to be on the same page with your teammates that can affect the outcome of each pitch.

Forth the nap.  Yes I said the nap.  I have found over the years watching baseball and enjoying the play by play announcers follow the game and tell stories about the game to be very relaxing and before I know it is nap time.

Fifth following your favorite team and players.  Baseball fans are very loyal to their teams.  Mine is the St Louis Cardinals.  The cards are one of the most popular teams in baseball and when I am out wearing a Card jersey (like I am now) I often get people who just want to talk baseball.

It is difficult when one of your co-workers is a fan of another team.   Here at KOOL, AJ Knight our afternoon DJ is wearing a CUB jersey and you know Cards and Cubs are arch rivals (and it has nothing to do with the St Louis Arch, HA HA HA HA)

 

But it is ok because its baseball, and it’s back!  So let’s go get a dog some peanuts and soda and watch a couple of game this year.

GO CARDS.

This I found this about food at the ballparks.   From CBS Sports

It’s opening day for Major League Baseball.  And almost every team is trying to boost ticket sales this year by offering ridiculous food options.  Here’s a round-up of the weirdest new foods you can get at ballparks this season

  1. The Fowl Pole. Rangers games.  It’s a single TWO-POUND chicken tender that comes with ranch and honey mustard.  The Rangers also have Bacon-Wrapped Hot Wings this year . . . and a chicken-and-waffle dish served in a waffle cone.
  2. The Dinger dog at Braves games.  It’s basically a footling pig-in-a-blanket that’s stuffed with cheese.  They also have a “Chicken and Waffle Boat” that comes in a long, hollowed-out waffle bun.
  3. The Coney Island Egg Roll  at Tigers games.  It’s basically a chili cheese dog without the bun, stuffed inside an egg roll, with mustard and onions on top.

4  Twisted Topped Pretzels at Cardinals games.  You get three pretzel twists, topped with pepperoni and cheese . . . buffalo chicken . . . or bacon and cheese.  St. Louis also has a giant, 16-inch-long slice of pizza this year called “The Mega Slice.”

  1. A Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwhich” at Twins games.  It comes with jelly-glazed bacon on toasted sourdough.
  2. AVACADO BITES  , at Yankees Stadium.  Its deep-fried slices of avocado, served with a spicy dipping sauce.
  3. The Pittsburg Cone  at Pirates games.  Kielbasa, pierogis, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing stuffed inside a waffle cone.

8  The Frito pie corn dog  at Astros games.  A foot-long hot dog, covered in crushed-up Fritos, with queso and Texas chili.  The Mets are also selling a “Chili Cheese Crunch Dog” that comes with Fritos on top.

  1. The Donut Burger  at Phillies games.  It’s a bacon cheeseburger with cherry pepper jam.  And the bun is two glazed donuts.
  2. 18 inch hot dogs at  Diamondbacks games . . . because a foot long isn’t enough anymore?  They’re selling three different kinds:  One topped with Reuben mac-and-cheese . . . a bratwurst version topped with fried mac-and-cheese . . . and a breakfast version topped with hash browns, bacon, fried eggs, cheese, and gravy.

The best HEALTHY new option we’ve seen is  THE 32 INGREDIENT SALAD  at Blue Jays games, which is vegan and gluten free.

Oh I could really make a P.I G. pig of myself some of that sounds great but let me remind The Blue Jays

Stupid news had Bikes, socks and the Rock

I USED TO THINK MY BETA MAX WAS KOOL!

 

I was living in central Louisiana when the home TV recording devices were starting to be priced low enough that I could afford one.  I wanted one, I needed one, and I thought if I didn’t get one my life would be over.  So what home TV recording device should I get Beta or VCR?

My answer came from a friend who owned a small store that sold TV’s home audio equipment rented movies and sold home recording devices.  So I went to my friend and he was showing me all the features of the Beta max and the VCR.  I was convince Beta Max was the way to go.  Better Picture quality and smaller tape size.  Yep Beta Max was KOOL.

I guess I was wrong because in just a few short years Beata Max was not to found any more.  So I dig into my wallet to purchase a VCR.   I kept my Beta max for a few years until it wore out.

The one problem that I found with both formats was HOW IN THE BLANKETY BLANK BLANK WERE YOU SUPPOSED TO UNDERSTAND TO SET UP A RECORD TIME.   The manufactures must have sat in board room having a grand time thinking about how to make the instructions harder to understand.  I am a visual person so reading directions is not a something I am good at.

Now you have a DVR or you use a streaming service or on demand to watch programs that you are not home to watch.

What made me think about this well yesterday I purchases my very first 4k movie.  “AQUAMAN”.

Yes we have come a long in technology but I kind of miss my Beta Max.  Why?   I had recorded WrestleMania # 3 on a Beta Max tape!  I guess I will just stream it on the WWE network.

I AM NOT A GOLFER BUT I TRIED

 

There is a reason I don’t golf anymore …… I am terrible at golf.  I played even took lessons but I sucked at golf.

I could always hit the ball a long way, but in golf if you hit a shot say two hundred yards but it goes way left…. That is not good.  The person who hit 150 straight is probably in better shape for a good score.

When I first started golfing with my cousin we carried warlike talkies on the course because I was so far off course you couldn’t shout.

However one day my tee shot went far out and too the right almost ( probably ) out of bounds and my cousin hit a little left so we were far apart on a long par 5.    We were talking to each other on our warlike talkies about what we should do and who should hit first.  I took the honors and pulled out a fairway wood and blasted one of the best shots of my life.  The ball flew straight and true toward the green.  My shot got even better when the ball hit the paved cart path and flew even closer to the green, barley missing a huge sand trap and coming to rest on the fringe of the green.  I am on the green in two shots on a par 5.  I was so happy thinking I am going to get an Eagle on a par 5!  I got out my putter and let’s just say no Eagle, no Birdie, and Par ……. I don’t think so.

Like I said.   I suck at golf.

I came close to a hole in one twice.  Once on a par three course on a whole about 75 yards long.   My shot just missed the cup not because of my great shot!  No my shot was strong but was barley off the ground struck a very large water hose in the fairway the ball hit it bounce straight in the air and landed near the cup.    I came close.

I also had a legit chance at an ace on a legit par 3 with a slight dog leg left.   There was also a slight slope down on the green.  I hit a very nice shot that landed just at the right spot.  The ball hit the slope and slowly rolled towards the cup and I saw some men at the next tee shouting and clapping.   They waited to see my reaction because my shot had stopped about one inch from the hole.

So why did I give up golf.  It was because of an old elbow injury.   Every time I would golf my left elbow would swell and would hurt for weeks.  Then I would go out and golf again.

I finally said I love the game but the pain is not worth it.   Golf is one of the most underrated sports in the world.   Tyrin to hit a small ball with a stick and aim it 250 to 300 yards towards a tiny hole and the only reason you know where you target is, is another stick with a flag on it.   That is if the foursome before you remembered to put it back.

So golfers you should be happy I don’t tee it up anymore, because the way I hit I would be screaming FOUR a lot.  Or I would just use a warlike talkie.

Today on the morning show slang words I am too old to use and Ron Howard says acting on the Andy Griffith show was difficult when there was ice cream involved.

MONDAY MONDAY WHY OH WHY DO WE HATE MONDAY’S

The three most common words today will be ‘MY BRACKET BUSTED” or ‘I HATE MONDAY’S”

We know why are brackets are busted, “WE SUCK AT PICKING GAMES”

Why do we hate Monday’s?

Well for one because we are supposed to!!!!

The hate of Monday’s has been pounded into our heads most of our lives and now with social media we post memes about Monday’s and almost all are negative about the 1st day of the week

An article in the Huffington post has scientific reason for our disdain of Monday’s.

 Sleep Patterns

Our minds are absolute slaves to our body clocks. As we remember every year when the clocks “spring forward,” even an hour’s change can completely mess you up. But in a way, we do this to ourselves every single week. Since most people don’t get enough sleep during the week, they often try to make up for it on weekends. But sleeping in even an hour or two for just two days can confuse your body clock.  According to scientists that extra sleep just makes you more tired at the start of the week, because it can throw your body clock off by up to 45 minutes. This makes it even harder to get up on a Monday morning, even though you would think you would be well rested since you “caught up” on sleep over the weekend.

  1. Socializing

One strange reason we might feel down Monday mornings is thanks to something that dates back to our cavemen days. Humans are social animals, and to feel happy we need to feel comfortable of our place in a “tribe,” so to speak… Gossiping with your co-workers is an important part of gearing up for the work week, and if you don’t do this, you might feel out of sorts.

  1. Sudden Change

Scientists have found that when you ask people to record their emotions at regular intervals, it turns out that Mondays are no more stressful or depressing than Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Fridays only come out ahead because people are anticipating the weekend. Other than that, all work days are equally terrible. But if you ask people to remember which day was worst, they will always say Monday.

  1. You Feel Worse About Yourself

Your average weekend might involve eating, drinking, or smoking more than normal. And all of these things take a toll on you physically, which may be why one study found that American women of all ages and locations feel least attractive on Mondays.

People also see Mondays as the best day to change something about themselves. You are more likely to start a diet a diet on the first day of the week, as well as quit smoking. While these are positive changes, they aren’t fun to actually do, and they come from a place of feeling bad about yourself and your health, which contributes to that blah Monday feeling.

  1. You Are Less Healthy

But you don’t just feel less healthy on a Monday, you actually are less healthy. Scientists have found that even people who generally maintain their weight weigh the most on Monday’s   Mondays are also the most common day for people to suffer heart attacks and strokes   Even if you don’t end up in the hospital, your blood pressure is higher on Monday, as is your chance of getting sick in general.

  1. You Don’t Like Your Job

According to a massive Gallup poll, 70 percent of people hate or, at best, are “completely disengaged” from their job. This contributes to what psychiatrists and career coaches call the MONDAY BLUES.

So there are reasons we hate Monday’s.  So if you will excuse me I have a diet to break.    Dang I feel bad about myself.   HAPPY MONDAY

SATURDAY MEMORIES

 

The excitement of Saturday’s changes during your life.

Take my life as an example.

MY BLOG MY LIFE.

As a kid I was a lot like Spanky of “The Little Rascal’s”

I was always trying to find a way to be “sick” on school days but OH MY SATURDAY’S

If I wasn’t outside playing I was watching TV with The Adventures of Superman.  Anything with Batman, The super friends. Bugs Bunny, Captain Caveman and a very strange favorite ‘Lancelot Link Secret Chimp”

As I grew older Saturdays changed.  I was still playing but now it was Church League Basketball.  I was once lead my team in scoring with 24pts, even 2 points for the other team!   Long story short a tip off went to me a guy was guarding me very close and I forgot which basket we had and trying to draw a foul I threw the ball towards the wrong hoop and swish.

Fast forward and Saturday’s meant a part time job at Transport Salvage… A junk yard!  Just like Sanford and Son but the owner would sometimes pick me up or take me home in his 63 vette or his Jaguar.

Off to college and Saturday’s became playtime again with bowling, foosball, and the occasional nap before a date or going to a dance.

Then it happened out of nowhere.  I became an adult with real adult responsibilities.  Saturday’s became more complicated.

Working in radio meant being on the air, doing remote broadcast and prep for the next week. If you had a few hours off you tried to take care of adult responsibilities, grocery shopping cleaning house and trying to find time for a nap.

So here I am later in life Saturdays still means adult things but now I am a married man and that means chores, cleaning and when that is over I watch my DVR recording of Live PD.  And if I am lucky THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN!

Here is a great song about Saturday’s.

After the 1st day of the bracket challenge I am leading Ajay Salveson with my 16-4 record while he is at 13 and 7.   I took the high ground on Friday morning.

SRING HAS SPRUNG — DON’T BE FOOLED

When you live in a valley like Cache Valley the weather is in a word unpredictable spring in Northern Utah ya gotta love it and I do.

Growing up in Tennessee I did not see a lot of winter. Oh the was snow and sometimes heavy but most years it was just cold and wet.  When it did snow it would melt away quickly.

The biggest difference I have seen in weather between Tennessee and here in Utah is spring time.   In Tennessee spring was of course beautiful the main drawback was living in Tornado Alley.

When I moved to Cache Valley almost 25 years ago I had to get used to new weather patterns.  Most of that had to do with spring, the old adage of “If you don’t like the weather… WAIT”

Cold crisp moorings becoming sunny mild to warm afternoons. Then it is time for a cold front with winds and who knows what sleet, hail, rain, snow.  I have seen all four in the space of about 5 minutes.

I learned quickly that travel in the spring can be a gamble.   Leave the valley floor and going into Sardine Canyon you need to be ready for anything.   That does not include the cops in Mantua!!!!

Then as the weather warms and the summer season gets closer you get a false sense of security. A few years ago we took a vacation and left on Mother’s Day and drove south on I-15 when KABLAMO.  Between Fillmore and Cedar City a storm hit that had so many trucks sliding off the road and the plows were either not out or unable to keep up.   I felt bad because my wife was driving and there was no place to safely pull off the road way.

You would think June would be a safe time to travel.  NOT SO SNOWFLAKE BREATH!  June 12th 2002 I wake up look out the window and it looked like January 12th.  I had a Doctor‘s appointment in Salt Lake city.  It snow the whole way down and I was told that Sardine Canyon was closed shortly after we made it through.   CRAZY

Then there is yard work and when you should or should not plant.  Some old timers told me to look for the Sevens on the Mountains between Hyrum and Providence.  Then I was told to wait to plant most of your flower plants until Memorial Day.

SPRING HAS SPRUNG BUT DON’T BE FOOLED

Today on the morning show Ajay Salveson from THE FAN called in from the site of the NCAA tournament to get us ready for The Aggie game VS Washington on Friday.  You can hear it hear

Ajay will be calling in Friday morning at 7:45 am to get us ready for the game which can be seen on TNT at 4:50

GENERIC DAVE

 

Saving money is a good thing!

Understatement of the year! 

Whenever you can save a few bucks on something you really need is amazing.  That happened to me this week.  There is a prescription that I need that is very expensive, even after insurance I have paid upwards of 180 dollars per month.  So when I went to the Pharmacy that same prescription was under 60 dollars.  KA-CHING!

Why the price difference, the USDA has approved this item to go generic.  That means other manufactures can now sell this and that means competition and that means KA-CHING for me.

But should we always buy generic?  I am not so sure about that one.  Sometimes they are good sometimes…… not so much.

I found this article on Generic items from Moneytalks.com that I thought had some great information.

12 items you should buy generic (and 4 you should not) by Alison Martin.

  1. Pantry items

If professional chefs and bakers aren’t overpaying for pantry staples like salt, sugar and baking powder, why should you? Sugar is sugar, regardless of which name appears on the label.

Will the everyday home cook notice a difference between name-brand garlic salt that costs 50 cents an ounce and the generic for 25 cents an ounce? The pros say “no.”

  1. Cleaning products

I’ve used generics and brand-name cleaning products interchangeably over the years, depending on what’s on sale and/or has the best coupon.

The end result is usually the same, if not better, when I’m using the store brands. The only difference is in the aromas.

So skip the name-brand window cleaner, bleach and detergent, and take advantage of the more cost-efficient options.

  1. Produce

Fruits and vegetables are an essential part of our diet, but that doesn’t mean we have to empty our wallets to fill our plates. If it’s fresh and ripe, it’s more than likely right for your tummy, even if there’s not a big-name company on the label.

If the produce comes in a can or is frozen, test for yourself to find out whether the generic is just as good in taste and quality as the big-name brands.

  1. Water

Why buy bottled water when you most likely have a nearly free source of water at home? (If you don’t like the taste of your tap water, get a filter for the faucet or a pitcher in the fridge.)

But for those times when you need to buy bottled water, go with the store brand every time. It’s drinking water, whether it costs $1.35 a gallon or only 83 cents for the store brand.

  1. Dairy products

Butter, milk and some cheeses have a similar taste across the board. As Money Talks News’ Stacy Johnson says, “There are not too many ways to squeeze milk from a cow. How can a name brand be better?”

  1. Over-the-counter medications

The pharmacists and other medical professionals mentioned earlier aren’t wrong. Compare the labels. Federal regulations mandate that generic versions contain identical quantities of active ingredients as their name-brand counterparts, along with the same standards for quality and safety.

A pharmacist brought this to my attention years ago, and I’ve saved a ton of money ever since. If you still have reservations, ask your doctor.

  1. Prescription drugs

Generic prescription drugs also must meet strict federal guidelines. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says, “They are copies of brand-name drugs and are the same as those brand-name drugs in dosage form, safety, strength, route of administration, quality, performance characteristics and intended use.”

And what a difference in the price! You can save up to 95 percent by buying the generic version, according to Consumer Reports.

  1. Beauty and other personal-care products

Store brands can work just as well, and may even have the same ingredients as the brand to which you are loyal. Experiment, and check for reviews and recommendations online.

  1. Gasoline

Business Insider contacted AAA about generic gas, and learned that the off-brands can be just as good as brand names.

“While it may seem generic gas is too good to be true and not the best option for your vehicle, unbranded fuel should not damage an engine,” AAA said.

“Even ‘unbranded’ fuel is required to meet legal requirements for RVP, ethanol percentage, octane, detergent content and more. In many cases, the local unbranded gasoline is actually supplied by a major oil company, but simply not sold under their name.”

  1. Cereal

Same look, same taste, so what’s the issue? I’m a big fan of the Walmart version of Froot Loops. It seems to resist sogginess longer and tastes delicious.

11. Soda

Does that generic version of Sprite really taste that different? If you’ve never ditched your Coke for a generic cola, I suggest giving it a try.

Some store-brand sodas are quite good, while others are not. Experimentation is required here.

  1. Salad and fruit mixes

The ingredients are the same, so why aim for the Dole when you can buy the store brand instead?

There are no guarantees with produce; a rotten apple is a rotten apple, no matter where it came from. Always check for freshness before you buy.

Save $1 or more per box. What more could a mom ask for?

When generics may not cut it

With several types of products, you may actually have to buy the brand name to get the best quality. These include:

  1. Infant care products

I’ve never been a fan of skimping on baby gear for the best bargain. It’s not worth the rash, soiled clothing or other adverse effects that may result.

What about formula? According to the Mayo Clinic, “Although manufacturers might vary in their formula recipes, the FDA requires that all formulas contain the minimum recommended amount — and no more than the maximum amount — of nutrients that infants need.”

  1. Household paint

Can you say cheap and thin? A watered-down paint will require more coats. Read online reviews before you make a commitment.

  1. Paper goods

Ever tried cleaning up a large mess with paper towels from the dollar store? If so, you know the claims about the durability of some of these brand-name products are true.

Also, cheap, generic paper plates don’t hold up well when they’re piled high with picnic food.

  1. Batteries

Generic batteries that are not alkaline likely won’t have as much power or last as long.

What’s your experience with generic products? Do they perform as well as or even outperform the big-boy brands?

It’s Dave again, I guess the biggest thing I took from the article is try it and if you don’t like it go back to the name brand.  But remember this, NEVER BUY GENERIC BACON!

NATIONAL LET’S LAUGH DAY

I love to laugh!   I think it is my favorite thing to do…..  Well maybe the second favorite thing.  This is a family blog so I won’t say what is number one, but laughing is second… well maybe third.  BACON I LOVE BACON.

Bad joke aside I do love to laugh.  Humor has been such a big part of my life from laughing at .The Little Rascals.  One of the greatest lines ever came when Farina said.  “I’m twice as tired as you are.  Because I’m twice as big as you”

Then there are the Three Stooges. Ladies I know – most women don’t get the nuyk nuyk humor of a good eye poke , hair pull or the Curly shuffle!

And I can’t tell you how many times I have walked into a Hospital and said “Dr Howard, Dr Fine, Dr Howard”

Laughter gives me one of my favorite memories with my Mother.  I was in my teens and at the time it was just mom and me at home, it was Easter time, my mom would usually go out and buy me some new Sunday Clothes.  With money being tight Mom ask me to forgo the new clothes this year but to make up for it she would buy me any album I wanted and take me to lunch.  Easter weekend arrived and off to Sears we went, not for clothes but an album.   I chose George Carlin’s “AM FM” album. 

Now I had no idea about some of the foul language that Carlin was using in his act.  This was before the “Seven words you can’t say on TV” days.  Mom and I drove home and stopped for food at a Fish and Chips place near our home.  At home we sat down in the living room with our food and to listen to my new album.    Here is the audio of the 1st clip on the album.  I have bleeped out a certain word.

Now imagine my very conservative Mother hearing that in her home.   Let’s just say the word in question sounded very close to CHIP well it had a H and I in it.    Mom flipped out.   I was laughing so hard at her reaction and her saying we were taking that horrible album back and then even saying that I her innocent son, her only boy would have planned on buying that album.  I did not plan it that way, Honest, you believe me ,don’t you.

I went into begging mode and finally Mom relented and said if I only listened to the AM side only ( The clean side) that I could keep the album.  I promised!  I ONLY LISTENED TO THE CLEAN SIDE OF THAT ALBUM!

You believe me don’t you?   Well I must confess I did listen to both sides but I did not plan to buy it that day.

MY MOM WAS GREAT!

Laughter continues to be part of my life every day.  Sitcoms, funny movies and just the strange things in life that make me laugh.   Life is hard sometimes.  I can get serious but I try to find something to laugh about or to just smile. 

As the saying goes ‘LAUGHTER IS THE BEST MEDICENE”  ‘THAT AND SOME BACON”

So today National let’s Laugh Day let’s get our giggle on!

Here are some trivia facts about humor

  1. 96% of people say they enjoy making others laugh. (That would be me)
  2. 95% of us think laughing helps relieve stress.  ( My blood pressure is good)
  3. 79% of us like our laugh.  But if we could choose a different one, 45% would want an “infectious” laugh . . . 33% would want a “sweet” laugh . . . 14% said a “goofy” laugh . . . 5% would want a “belly” laugh . . . and 3% would want an “annoying” laugh.  (???)

 

  1. 77% of people think they’re funny.  And 39% like to be self-deprecating and make fun of themselves to make people laugh.
  2. 60% of Americans in relationships think they’re the “funny one.”  That includes 68% of men, and 54% of women. (My wife has a great since of humor she had to she married I didn’t her!  I might be the “funnier one” but my wife has a great since of humor)
  3. Only 33% of men and 29% of women said they laugh at least 10 times a day.  (I am way above that)
  4. And the people who make us laugh the most are our friends, followed by our significant other . . . our kids . . . our siblings . . . and our parents.  What about a certain KOOL radio guy????

 

Today on stupid news:  That’s not a knife.  He’s drunk and Give me your pants

I THOUGHT I HAD LOST MY MIND BUT I FOUND IT!

 

I LOST MY PHONE

Just about two years ago I flew into a rage and thought I had lost my mind when I could not find my phone … anywhere.   The crazy thing was I had used it about 30 minutes before I couldn’t find it.

I looked everywhere I could think, in the garbage cans, underneath the couch and chairs.  I checked the bedrooms the kitchen and even the bathroom I looked under the seat cushions….It was gone!  But I did find enough change to buy a Happy Meal!

I LOST MY PHONE AND IT MADE ME LOSE MY MIND!

Until this past Saturday!  I was cleaning out my car when there it was my lost phone.  It was under a floor matt that was under my driver’s seat!   You are probably say “Hey Dave, clean your car”!  I had several times (at least 2 or 3) and the ironic thing is that my car was detailed after body repairs caused by a fender bender!

I thought I was losing my mind.  But all I lost was a phone!  I sure like my new one.

On the morning show we were joined by Ajay form THE FAN to talk about the Cache Valley Media Bracket Challenge.

Also today: Where do you use your phone?
