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 final year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. (he keeps me on my toes!) 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 18 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

My Friend’s Newfangled Light Bulb Blinks Leaving Us Baffled [VIDEO]

I was visiting a friend the other day and as we walked up the stairs I commented on the odd shape of her light bulb.  She said that she had just put it in and as she turned it on, it flashed on and off in a very deliberate way.  We wondered why and she tried it again and again.  Each time, it flashed twice.  Have you seen this?
