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!

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!

Here is The Key To Quitting Smoking, Whether You Quit Cold Turkey Or Have Help

Today is National Kick Butts Day, where they urge you to using tobacco for one day.  The goal is that if you can make it one day without cigarettes, you know you can do it.  I smoked my last cigarette 16 months ago, and it wasn't any tricks or patches, or gum that got me to quit.  I've tried that before.  This time I had the key.
