Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her second year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 16 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

This Video Will Make You Put That Cell Phone Down!

It's ironic that a viral video about anti-social media is being shared on social media, but that's where I found it.  My daughter had posted it on her facebook page and after watching it and reading her post "makes you think twice", I sent her a message saying "You. Me. The Lakewalk with no cell phones, are you IN?"  To my delight, she 'liked' it!  Honestly, this video showed her what I have been trying to tell her for years.

Scotty McCreery And Friends Held-Up In Apartment Invasion

I've heard of home invasions before but you would think an apartment invasion would be hard to pull off.  There's so many people to hear it going down that you'd think the chances of getting caught are much higher.  For some reason, it's always more shocking to hear it happened to someone famous, but that's exactly what happened in Raleigh, N.C. to Scotty McCreery!
