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

Get a New Hobby for Your Kids, Enlist Them in the Twin Ports Junior Derby

5, 4, 3, 2, 1!  I had the honors of blowing the first whistle at the Twin Ports Junior Roller Derby vs the North East Roller Derby Youth.  I knew very little about the sport as I walked through the doors of the World of Wheels on Sunday night.  In about half an hour I found myself cheering them on and counting the laps of the jammer!

This just plain ole' made me smile, then laugh out loud. The Steve Harvey Show aired Irene and Alice "chatting".  They have been friends for 94 years and are still giggling like a couple of school girls (and cussin' like sailors)!  This will definitely make you giggle!

See Olympic Luger Kate Hansen’s Pre-Race Warm-Up Dance [Jammin' Video]

I have always admired lugers, that has got to be exhilarating, racing down an icy tube with no restraints or protection except a helmet.  Their body muscles have GOT to be amazing!  They have to fight the centrifugal force with every fiber of their being at speeds of over 70mph.  How do they prepare for such a dangerous ride?  Kate Hansen has a very unique way and with good reason.

KIND Bar Healthy Grains Product Review

I first fell in love with the Kind Nut & Spices Bar, there's lots of different flavors, but my favorite is the Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt.  There's only 5 grams of sugar, 7 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and it tastes great!  But, I could only buy them individually.  I wanted to buy a box full.  Then, I saw these, KIND Healthy Grains and they are scrumptious!  I give this two thumbs up and would give it a third if I could!

Is Billy Ray Cyrus Following Miley’s Rebel Ways With His Revamped Achy Breaky Heart Song? [Warning: Adult Video]

I can't tell you how many times I've sang and danced to this song since I first heard it in the 90's. Now I like many different genres of music, so this latest version from Buck 22 featuring Billy Ray doesn't really bother me. It's just a different style of the song. IT's Billy Ray that has me shaking my head. He's changed and WHOA, not sure if it's for the better or if he's following in Miley's "I'll do whatever I want" mode.
