Should Your Birthday Be a Paid Personal Day Off?

Birthdays, everyone has one and for the most part, it is the one day of the year that belongs to you and you alone. It is and should be a celebration of your own life. It is funny that the older you get, the less important your birthday seems to get...in fact, for some people, a birthday is nothing more than a reminder that you are getting older.

It is Good Friday and Leslie and I got into a spirited discussion with listeners this morning about a story out of Washington State with regard to using the word 'Easter' with eggs, candy and egg hunts.

The Easter Bunny Has Been Spotted in the Tri-State

On the show this morning, we had a lengthy discussion about Easter. It involved everything from Easter candy to a debate on whether to take the word 'Easter' out of egg hunts. Which, by the way, got VERY heated. I will address THAT over the weekend. :-) Any way, I mentioned that I had actually seen the Easter Bunny hopping around in downtown Evansville hiding his eggs. A listener has ALSO seen the furry little guy, but he wasn't hopping around. He even took a picture.

St.Patty’s Day Cinnamon Rolls Are the Bomb

On a Saturday morning, there is nothing that my kids like to wake up more to than the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. I have to admit, I usually just bake the can of 'Grands.' Never have I attempted to make them from scratch. But with ingredients like Bailey's, Jameson and Guinness, I'm about to try! ;-)

National Weatherman’s Day Has to Include Some Wayne Hart [VIDEOS]

On the show this morning, I told you it's 'National Weatherman's Day.' The first thing that came to my mind was my buddy Wayne Hart over at Eyewitness News. I remembered a video I had seen of some promos he made in Louisville while working at WLKY.

You know, we give weathermen a lot of grief, so on this special day, I decided to give Wayne a little more grief - I posted a video of a blooper too!!!
