Cathy Kates

Hello, from a Northland girl born in Cloquet, raised in Wrenshall, and currently living in Duluth! I consider myself lucky to have been able to share my mornings and life with you since 1996. It's like audio Facebook. You're the reason getting up at 3am is totally worth it! I love hot buttered movie theater popcorn, the smell of a lake (especially if I’m fishing), and warm fuzzy blankets. I’m a lover, not a fighter, and yes it’s true, I get my hair cut on a weekly basis. Kudos to my family, Homie, Kylee, and my Schnauzer, Bauer for always being by my side. I appreciate that you wake up with the B105 Breakfast Club, read and share my blogs and most of all, your friendship through the years! Peace, love and hugs!

Does Duluth Have A Geese Overpopulation Situation?

Recently while we were on air I was mentioning the abundance of rabbits we had at our house (insert multiplying like rabbits here). Other than the fancy driving I have to do to avoid hitting them since they never seem to know which direction they want to go, I’m kinda glad they are around because that means we don’t have fox, owls or fishers in the neighborhood. That’s when a Facebook friend took to a rant about the geese and I had to agree with him.

Use The Correct Coconut Oil In Your Coffee, I Was Drinking Shortening [VIDEO]

My friend Gary had told me that he was putting coconut oil in his coffee as a way to lose weight.  It sounded yummy and who isn't looking to lose a few pounds so I thought I'd give it a shot.  I guess I should have asked some additional questions before I jumped right in, apparently there is a difference between coconut oil and the way it's processed.
