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

Jimmy The Groundhog Bites Mayor During Groundhog Day Declaration [Video]

Locally, we relied on Spike, the porcupine at the Lake Superior Zoo to tell us if we will have six more weeks of winter.  He ate his breakfast on Monday, made his predictions and scampered off.  One groundhog in Wisconsin wasn't so cordial and was naughty with their Mayor.  At least he didn't draw blood.

I check facebook several times over a weekend.  This weekend I saw a friend request from an Amy.  I recognized her last name and thought "could it be"?  Sure enough, it was a former student from when I taught Red Cross swimming lessons at the Wrenshall School pool in the late 70's.  I accepted her request for friendship and she sent me two photos that absolutely FLOORED me!
