Another First For Me, Tripping While On A Training Run

I don't get to run in the mornings very often because I'm on the B105 Morning Show, so while on vacation I decided to take advantage of it.  We parked at Bayfront Festival park on a warm sunny day.  I felt good, was relaxed and enjoying the beauty of Lake Superior when out of the blue, I miss stepped and down I went, first time I've ever fallen while running ever!

Did You Know You’re Supposed To Report If You Find Dead Birds In Douglas County?

I had no idea this was even a thing, but there is a "dead bird reporting" hotline in Wisconsin.  It's to help monitor West Nile Virus, so the state will actually test the bird to see if it has the disease.  DO NOT TOUCH THE DEAD BIRD WITH YOUR BARE HANDS.

How Cool Are The Weight Stations On The Paved Trail In Two Harbors?

While we were camping in Two Harbors at Burlington Bay, we had to run to Super One. We decided to go for a drive on the road that passes by Super One.  We saw a paved running trail and made note that we would have to try that route the next morning, then we saw something that was so cool we just had to stop and take a pic.

Could The Popular Acid Reducer Omeprazole Be Killing Me?

Well this just plain sucks.  I've been taking over the counter Omeprazole for about two years now to treat regularly occurring heartburn.  It was a miracle when I found it, because it's the only antacid that really did the trick for me.  Now this week, a study has come out saying that it increases my risk for an early death.  Usually I brush these "studies" off, but this was kind of alarming.

Has Your Child Ever Experienced Night Terror?

My daughter is 23 and as far as I know, she never experienced night terror.  Like most children, she had her share of bad dreams now and then, but nothing that caused us concern.  A Facebook friend, Anna brought night terror to my attention because she is asking if others have experienced this and what can be done about it.  It isn't talked about much, can we help her?

Does Duluth Have A Geese Overpopulation Situation?

Recently while we were on air I was mentioning the abundance of rabbits we had at our house (insert multiplying like rabbits here). Other than the fancy driving I have to do to avoid hitting them since they never seem to know which direction they want to go, I’m kinda glad they are around because that means we don’t have fox, owls or fishers in the neighborhood. That’s when a Facebook friend took to a rant about the geese and I had to agree with him.

Use The Correct Coconut Oil In Your Coffee, I Was Drinking Shortening [VIDEO]

My friend Gary had told me that he was putting coconut oil in his coffee as a way to lose weight.  It sounded yummy and who isn't looking to lose a few pounds so I thought I'd give it a shot.  I guess I should have asked some additional questions before I jumped right in, apparently there is a difference between coconut oil and the way it's processed.
