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

SPRING Ahead With Your Clocks Before You Go To Bed On Saturday Night, It’s Daylight Saving Time

Guess what?  You'll read this, people will remind you and you'll STILL be early for everything you do this Sunday until you realize it's Daylight Saving Time!  I do the same thing when it's a holiday and I tell everyone there is no mail delivery.  First thing I do when I get home from work is walk to the mailbox, do the happy dance because we got no mail, (which means no bills), then realize my error and the fact that the bills are just being held for a day, I'll see them tomorrow!
