When you get a weekend you get an opportunity to recharge and relax……. Yeah right.  The last two weekend felt completely different for me.

The weekend of April 7th and 8th was kind of strange yet good too.   I spent Saturday morning doing some errands and things around the house.  Went out to lunch with my wife and getting excited about WrestleMania weekend.  But something felt off.  I was just not feeling right.   I watched NXT Take over which was one of the best wrestling shows I have seen in a long time.  But still something felt off.  I just couldn’t put my finger on it.

Sunday morning was full of Sunday activities and I still felt off and started to understand why.  I wasn’t feeling sick but kind of saw the signs.  I am very fidgety when I am tired and not feeling well.  Kind of like “Restless Leg syndrome” except mine is the more like” Restless Body”   I didn’t think much of it.  So I just continued on with my weekend!

I had been really looking forward to WrestleMania for several months.  (I know I am such a geek) so at 3pm I sat inform of my computer with the WWE network on and started watching but still didn’t feel right.   After a disappointing mania I went to bed because 4:30 come early especially on a Monday morning.  But still something just didn’t feel right.  I had a little trouble sleeping but when the alarm went off at 4:30 it was time to get up shower and come to work.

Then here at work I knew something just didn’t feel right. Finally I figured it out I was sick.   Literally I could not keep my eyes opened that Monday morning and it was scary.   Finally, I hit the wall!   I could not work I was sick.  Bad sick.   Now I have worked when my voice was gone, I have worked through the pain of a broken bone in my foot.  On other words I don’t like missing work.   But on last Monday morning I had no choice.  I called my wife and asked her to come pick me up because I knew I should not drive in that condition.  I WENT HOME!

When I should have been here I was at home sleeping.   Monday April 9th after getting up at 4:30a, I was back in bed at 7am asleep.   I slept and I slept and I slept.  I got up for about 45 minutes around 11:30 for natures call and lunch.  Then back in bed until 4:30pm, dinner time and more nature.   At 7pm I was back in bed until 4:30 am on Tuesday!  I have never slept so long in my life not even in the hospital after surgery.  I got up Tuesday to come to work but had my wife drive me and I was feeling a lot better.  Still I went home around 10:30am and back to bed for a couple of hours.

Now fast forward to April 14th and 15th.  Saturday was spent doing a few things.  Sunday was a typical Sunday and in the afternoon sitting on a rocking chair outside enjoying a beautiful day.

The big difference was no Wrestling.  Well maybe a little.

Two weekends and 2 very different outcomes.  Excuse me while I go home for another nap!

Today on the morning show

Stupid news:  A date that went wrong and some parents protecting their child

Laff Lines Brian Regan on baseball

A cartoon Tooth Fairy man in a tutu.



Every Friday I get asked “What are you doing this weekend” and more times than not I say not much.

Yes I am kind of a homebody, not that I don’t ever go out and do something I just enjoy being home with my friends and if a couple of friends come over even better.   And if my wife cooks her famous ribs even better.

As I thought about this I realized that because of my childhood I became kind of comfortable being home.   We just didn’t have a lot of money for lots of weekend stuff.  I do remember a few trips to a carnival and maybe to a lake and even in my College years I was not a party animal.

One of the things I do enjoy doing on the weekends is jumping around a few yard sales or going with my wife and hitting up the thrift stores along the Wasatch front and of course a stop at a restaurant for lunch is always in order.   But even at that by three or four pm I want to be home.

I guess you could say I am a homebody maybe it is because I enjoy my wife’s company and she is my home.


It’s Friday the 13th . . . and if you’re superstitious as I am, you’ll want to read this list.  It’s how seven of the most common superstitions got started.

  1. Friday the 13th.  Nobody knows for sure how it got started but one theory is that it has biblical origins and is tied to the number of guests at the Last Supper and Jesus’ crucifixion on Good Friday.


  1. Breaking a mirror.  Ancient Romans believed that mirrors held a piece of your soul . . . and a separate myth said that our body “renews” itself every seven years.  So those two things together helped create the “seven years of bad luck” thing.


  1. A black cat crossing your path.  Black cats got a bad rap in the middle Ages when they were associated with witchcraft and demons.


  1. Walking under a ladder.  Back in medieval times, ladders were associated with the gallows where people were hanged.  So a person who walked under one might be facing their own death by hanging in the near future.  There was also the idea that the area underneath was HAUNTED.


  1. Opening umbrellas indoors.  Again, nobody knows for sure but one theory is that the ancient Egyptians used umbrellas to protect themselves from the sun, and using them indoors was considered an insult to the sun god.
  2. Spilling salt.  There are a couple reasons why spilled salt is supposedly bad luck.  One is that salt was once an expensive trading commodity, so spilling it was just plain wasteful.

7. Stepping on a crack.  This one is from European and early American folk tales, which said that the empty spaces in cracks on the ground were actually connections from earth to the spirit world . . . and messing with them would cause bad luck.


On the morning show we talked World records and Facebook

Today’s weather forecast is for a cold wet windy day and what goes with a day like today   A grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup……… ah that is comfort food.

I am not a big fan of cheese but a grilled cheese is mighty tasty and since today is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich day

Boar’s head recently completed a survey that show’s only 13% of Americans DON’T like grilled cheese sandwiches.  87% said they do.  And it’s our SECOND favorite cheesy food behind pizza, but ahead of macaroni and cheese and cheeseburgers.

Another new survey also revealed just how much we love cheese in general . . .

87% of people in that survey said they’d rather give up either coffee, chocolate, or booze before cutting cheese out of their diet.

90% would eat cheese multiple times every day if it wasn’t bad for them.

And 66% said that if the area they live in suddenly BANNED cheese, they’d move.

Which I find kind of CHEESY!  Bad joke I know.

There is even word out today that eating a combo of grilled cheese and tomato soup is not good for you because it is hard to digest and might cause you to have gas.   So I say what is a little gas between friends and you would say EWW.

A few years ago the FOOD NETWORK had a competition show all about opening a food court restaurant.  One of the ideas was for a Grilled Cheese Restaurant, which I thought was a great idea and the judges didn’t agree with me.  I thought they could even feature a Grilled Cheese Sandwich of the day which would pair different Cheeses and soups.  I think the combo’s would be endless and a lot of fun.  Why don’t I put my money where my mouth is?  Well I have plenty of mouth but not a lot of money.

Now on to MAYOCHUP, Heinz Ketchup has combined Mayo and Ketchup and have it on the shelfs in the Middle East and now are thinking about bringing it to America.   What brilliance they want to bring “FRY SAUCE” to us here where we already have “FRY SAUCE”

My 1st try and fry sauce was at the Arctic Circle in Rexburg.  It instantly became my fry dip of choice.   I would tell my friends in TN about it and got the YUK response.

When I lived outside of St Louis I would have lunch a couple of times a week at a small mom and pop place.  One day they saw me take Mayo and mix it with Ketchup and you would have thought I had set off a nuke.   I kept trying to get them to try it and even told them it would be a hit with the crowd they wanted more of high school students.   But did they listen to me NOOOOOOOOOOO!  They were out of business within a year.  Fry sauce doesn’t get the respect it deserves.

Another food related idea I had was a Buffet that would have at least one night a month with Breakfast at dinner.   I love having breakfast foods for dinner and think that idea could be a winner if done properly.   Take a night where you are not getting big crowds and make it something special.   Breakfast for dinner, I think that is a winner for dinner.  Guy Fieri watch out!


Today on stupid news:  There’s no place like home and IT”S FRY SAUCE

What is the name of your dog?

I will answer that question but be patient.  Why?  It national Pet Day.  The daily mail did a survey and the results are in and the top 10 pets look like this

  1. Dogs.  45% of us have dogs. 2.  Cats, 30%.     3.  Fish, 9%.
  2. Birds, 5%.   5.  Hamsters, gerbils, and mice 2%.    6.  Horses, 2%.
  3. Snakes, 2%.   8.  Guinea pigs, 1%.    9.  Iguanas, geckos, and other

Lizards, 1%.    10.  Tarantulas, 1%. .

I know people that want an exotic pet, Pot belly pigs, Chickens and the ones that I will never understand.  Pet Lions, Raccoons and even Alligators. These are wild animals that can hurt or even kill you, oh that and the fact that they are illegal to have as pets.

Growing up the 1st pet I can remember was a cat named “Benny” Benny was thought to be a boy cat until that day when Benny had Kittens.   My sister even wrote a letter to the editor of the Memphis paper which they printed about Benny.

But what is the dog’s name? Patience it is coming

After leaving for college I have not had a pet, I had a hard enough time feeding myself much less pet.  But friends had pets that were fun.

There was Misty a cocker spaniel who was well trained and so much fun to play with.  Snuggles a miniature poodle who was constantly licking that dog’s lounge never stopped.

But what is the name of that dog you ask.  Now your patience is rewarded.

My sisters came home with a dog one day.  A cute little terrier mix.  As we got older my sisters all left home so the dog was mine.   After school one day a friend came to my house and my dog was barking and snarling.  My friend Wayne said that is one mean dog what is its name?  Well, my response stuck in my throat like a cat with a fur ball until my brain made my mouth say “PRECIOUS” As Wayne had a huge belly laugh, I had to explain why I a 14 year Macho teen had a dog named “Precious”.

Remember it was my sisters who brought the dog home not me.  They named her not me.  I think they named the dog Precious as a cruel joke on me in the future knowing that a 14 year old with a Precious would be the butt of many jokes on his behalf.  It happened but I didn’t care, why Precious was my dog. A friend who would sit on my lap as I watched many a football games.  A friend that was hard to leave behind when I went away to college.   And when I got the call that my friend had passed away I cried tears for a dog who was family.

That’s the thing about pets they do become a part of your family.  I don’t have a pet today, allergies and HOA rules prohibit it.  But if you have a pet please be responsible and realize that not everyone loves your dog, cat or any other animal as much as you do.   And if you take your dog out for a walk CLEAN UP THE POOP!

Stupid news BAD BOYS

Laff Lines: Food allergies


Before I begin todays blog post a terrible thing happened to my friend and coworker. Bill Logan here is post that some of you might have already seen to explain what happened

The Cache Valley Media Group family was shocked and saddened to learn that Trinity Logan (18), beloved daughter of Q92.9 Morning Show host, Bill Logan, took her own life on Thursday, April 5th.

Trinity was a beautiful, intelligent, and loving soul and we are devastated for Bill and his family. Bill moved to Cache Valley 12-years ago and has been an integral part of so many people’s lives and mornings. The Q-Crew has started this GoFundMe so that Bill can take his beautiful daughter, Trinity, home to Hawaii to be laid to rest and so that his children who live in other states can attend the interment of their beloved sister. The cost is considerable and so we are taking it upon ourselves to try and lessen his load.

Bill’s Co- host Loralee Choate

This is difficult news for me to pass on. Bill’s beloved daughter, Trinity, took her own life last Thursday. Trinity was Bill’s entire world and I am heartbroken for my dear friend and co-host. Bill and his wife are on their own here in Cache Valley. They are holding a memorial service for Trinity this week and have to fly their children in for the service. To add to that, Trinity is being taken home to Hawaii to be laid to rest. The cost of this is considerable, and the Q-Crew would like to ensure that her siblings can be there and to help ease this burden as much as possible. We love Bill and know that you do as well. Please do not feel guilty if it is not possible to contribute. We would appreciate it if you could share this on your social media pages, if possible.

For those who would like to attend Trinity’s memorial service, it is this Friday, April 13th from 6-8 at New Life Fellowship Chapel (2045 N 800 E, North Logan.)

I will be covering for Bill until such time he feels able to come back to work. THANK you for your support. We have the best listeners and community in the world.

I can’t even express the sadness I feel today myself.   Bill and I have worked together for 15 years and shared lots of laughs and serious discussion.  We are the same age and have had similar life experience.   My thoughts my prayers are with Bill and his family.

I love you Bill

Today is National Siblings day, a day for all of us to remember our Brothers and Sisters.  In my Family I have 4 sisters, Bettye (who passed away last year), Edwinna, Sandra and Judy, my brother Sammy (Sandra’s Twin) died shortly after birth.

Life has separated us many miles but we all have had great times together.

Bettye the oldest took on a lot of responsibilities after my father died when I was 4, she married and started her own family and we spent much of my childhood separated by miles but not separated in love.

Edwina taught me humor.  She is so creative and funny I would say she taught me how to laugh.

Sandra taught me how to love in the face of adversity she is the best cook in the family.

Judy helped me have fun, the closest in age we relied on each other and most of the time she even kept me out of trouble…. Most of the time!

Here is some trivia about siblings

89% of Americans have a sibling . . . and one out of five say they’re TOTALLY different than their siblings.   10% are best friends with their brother or sister   36% of people say it’s best to be the oldest sibling . . . 31% say the youngest . . . 18% say the middle . . . and 15% say it’s ideal to be an only child.  That last one includes about one out of eight people with siblings, who wish they DIDN’T have ’em.

Here are some famous siblings in Music

The Bee gee’s, The Beach boys, The brothers Johnson, Gladys’s Knight and the Pips, the Jets, the Isley Brothers, the  Pointer Sisters, Utah’s own the Osmond’s, and the most famous musical family The Jacksons

Famous Actors and actresses include.  Maggie and Jake Gylenhall. Liam and Chris Hemsworth, Eric and Julia Roberts, Alec , Billy, Stephen and Daniel Baldwin , Beau and Jeff Bridges and sister Cindy, John Joan and Ann Cusak, Rossana, Patricia and David Arquette, Fred and Ben Savage, twins Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen. Mellissa and Sara Gilbert, Chad and Rob Lowe, Haylie and Hillary Duff, the Quaid brothers randy and Dennis, Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estavez, Jane and Peter Fonda.    I am sure there are plenty more out there.

One more thing about our siblings.  Sometimes we have a hard time getting along with our siblings and I have a theory about that.  There is friction between siblings because we as there brothers and sisters see every flaw every little personality quirk our siblings have and that is magnified by the family dymanic.  I know it is hard to believe but I bet if you asked my sisters if I was perfect they would have plenty to tell about me.  I know and here we thought I was the REFLECTION OF PERFECTION.

Happy Siblings day

Today on stupid news. Cats, Couches and Roofs

Laff lines DONUTS;








I have written about my love of baseball but today I add some thoughts on Pro Wrestling to.  Completer opposites but each holds a place in my life.

You know I am a St Louis Cardinal fan, but today is more on what I love about the sport.  A good baseball game tells a story.  The battle between the pitcher and the hitter.  Hitting a baseball is so hard that to be considered a great ball player you need to hit 3 out of 10 times, that’s right 30% is very successful.

The baseball story unfolds with new stories every half inning.  To prove my point I got to a Cardinal and Brewers game this week.  My cards had a 4 to 0 lead at one point.  The story most of the game was the Brewers not hitting.  Well the Brew Crew battled back and the story changed.  Why? With two out in the bottom of the night down by one the Brewers hit two home runs back to back to get the4 walk off victory.  The story changed from no hitting to BANG! A walk off.

So you can take that analogy and put in to the story of why I love Pro Wrestling.  It is the story being told in a ring and the arena.  Good Guy Bad guy.  Will his best friend turn on him and they become enemies.  Is the ref blind (also in Baseball)?  In the ring dur8ing a match one wrestler dominates then the other wrester makes a comeback he could win or will the bad guy cheat to win Who will win who will lose and why It’s a great story and this weekend the story is WRESTLE MANIA.

Here are my predictions for Sunday’s Mania

Laff Lines _ Bad rumor tweets from the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon



No offense but I don’t trust you.

It is just one of those things that I don’t distrust you but I don’t fully trust everybody.  Right now at KOOL 1039 my car is locked, I lock up my home and even carry my wallet in a front pocket, it is harder to be a victim of a pickpocket than if I had my wallet in the back pocket.   Something that I learned when I was a teenager …… the hard way!

As the Joker would say “WHY SO SERIOUS” , Benji and I were talking and he should me a social media site that he subscribes to called Snapchat and a service that other Snapchat users can see where you are at any time 24 -7. NOOOOOOO WAY.   Some people are a lot more trusting than me,

Oliva Solon wrote about it in the Guardian.  She wrote the feature lets users track other people’s location in real time, rising concerns among safety and privacy advocates.     YA THINK?

Snap product designer Jack Brody told Refinery 29. “There’s something really powerful about seeing the diversity but also the similarity of snaps around the world”.   Whatever the heck that means.  He add Snapchaters can choose exactly who they want to share their location with, if at all (That would be me) and can change that setting at any time.

Now that is something that SnapChat did right.  Larry Magis, the CEO of Connectsafely.org said parents would sit down with their kids and get them to really consider which friends they are sharing with.    I would add to that to warn them, don’t add anyone you just met.

To be fair Twitter lets people add their location to tweets, while Facebook check in and the share location Messenger function allow people to track their contacts.  Man this is scary stuff

I do use Facebook, I am a novice on Twitter but I do have a rule. If I am out of town I never let my “Friends” know about it until I am home.  Why?  I don’t want a friend to think about an opportunity that they would not normally do.   When I am home then I will share to let friends and family see that I am living and had a great time.

I enjoy social media for the most part but as with everything in this world it has an evil side!  That is a side I don’t like at all.  I would just say be cautious and enjoy life, but for me I have my eye on you.  I might Love you I might like you.  But that doesn’t mean I fully trust you.

I have been thinking about this for a few days, what is it?  How to say GOODBYE.   No I am not leaving KOOL.  But I just noticed that a phrase is starting to take the word Goodbye away from our everyday use.

For the past few weeks whenever I am in a store it seems like the clerk always says to me “HAVE A GOOD ONE”  I use it too but it makes me think. “Have a good….what”?  I guess it is a universal way to say GOODBYE.

There are several way to say GOODBYE.  You could sing it.

Or you could say things like farewell, take care, bye, see you later, or as they say in TN see ya’ll later. Catch you later, or as they said during the CB craze Catch you on the Flip Flop.  You can do the 6o’s PEACE.

You could even use another langue.

As I have told you in the past I sometimes have trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep and last night was one of those nights.  I woke up three times before 2am and only once was for the reason most men of my age wake up in the middle of the night.


Here are four tips to help you make it through the day that are all backed by science . . . and as you know “She blinded me with Science”

  1. Open your curtains as soon as you wake up.  Natural light tells your body to stop producing melatonin, which is the hormone that makes you sleepy.  And at the same time, it ups your serotonin levels, which improves your mood and helps you focus.


  1. A cold shower really does work.  The shock of it makes you breathe faster, which increases your oxygen intake and speeds up your circulation.  A study last year linked cold showers with higher energy levels. But beware shrinkage you know.
  2. Include at least two food groups at breakfast.  Something like cereal or an energy bar might give you a BOOST of energy.  But you’ll run out of gas and crash within a few hours.  So something with protein and fiber is better.


  1. Don’t drink coffee or your beverage of choice right away.  Your cortisol levels rise in the morning, which helps you wake up.  But caffeine can inhibit that process and make you groggier.  So when you don’t get enough sleep, it’s better to wait an hour or two before your first cup. But I ask if I believe all those TV commercial’s isn’t “THE BEST PART OF WAKING UP IS FOLGERS IN YOUR CUP” If you can’t trust a commercial who can you trust?  A politician?    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

I’m Dave Denton and you’re not

I HAVE BEEN KNOW TO BE A “Wild and Crazy Guy” and I blame the early years of Saturday night live “Yeah that’s the ticket)

I went to Ricks College in 1975 when Saturday night Live debuted on NBC and the battle of the quotable lines started. On Sunday mornings at Church of all places you could tell those of us who had watched the show.  We would call each other Wild and Crazy guys or do the little wiggle made famous by Steve Martin and Dan Akroyd.   You with my friends it was “Always Something”

As I matured and grew I was always ready for someone to “Pump you up”.  I could sing like a knighting gale to my version of “Uking for lub in all the Wong places” is a classic.

SNL even affected my love of sports as I always knew “Baseball was berry berry good to me” And who could watch the NFL and not love “Da Bears” but I just couldn’t bring myself to love Da Cubs”

While in college I always was read to go “Sitting in a Hot tub” because after a hot tub party the ladies would always tell me “You look Marvelous”

Then as I age I find “It’s always something” I would get “ A fever for more cowbell” or a little hunger late at night and break out the old “BASS O MATIC “or go out for a late meal of “Cheeburger Cheebuger and a Coke, no coke Pepsi”

Over the years I watched less and less I guess it is because “I’m good enough , I smart enough and doggone it , people like me” and as cable started to give us more options I started watching more let’s say mature programing “SWING”.  Well I guess I better wrap this up so “Party on Wayne Party on Garth”.  So I will be back on Tuesday morning after I go to my home “In a Van down by the River eating Government Cheese”

Just remember my love for SNL.  So until we meet again “BAH BYE” and “I am Dave Denton and you’re not”

Today a 7 year old boy reminded me not to be a POOP HEAD and us preview the Masters.
