Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning for the last 10 years. I grew up on ‘The Range’ and I’ve made the Twin Ports my home for over the last decade. It’s a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love to hunt, fish, and hang out in our great outdoors. I also love my job! It’s great to be able to connect with everybody in the Northland every morning and have a few laughs together. I’ve lived in many different parts of the Midwest, but nothing is as great as right here!

This Toy Car Actually Teaches Kids About How To Maintain A Real Car [VIDEO]

I think one of the most important lessons I learned early on was how to take care of vehicles.  We rely on them so much in our daily lives, and proper maintenance is something we need to pass on to our kids.   This toy car actually gets the kids interested in how cars work and lets them tinker on it.

Is Facebook Going A Little Too Far With ‘People You May Know’ Suggestions?

I'll be completely honest.  I got a little freaked out the other day when Facebook suggested that I may know someone.  Let me explain.  This person was someone who I had just sent a single e-mail to, and had never saved their contact information, phone number, or anything.   We have no mutual friends, and live 120 miles apart. How would Facebook know that I have been communicating with this person?

I saw this today and just had to share it.  These guys are perfomers on a cruise ship and have seen a lot of weather.  But, they had never seen anything quite like this.   Last year a cruise ship got caught in a bad storm.  They filmed the rough sea from deck 3, and waves were still engulfing their cabin.  It's crazy!
