Is It Just Me?


I like to use the self-checkout at the grocery story whenever I shop. That way, complete strangers aren't handling my food (it's a germ thing) or judging what I put in my belly. And I like bagging my own stuff. It's an organization thing. I'm really not OCD, but I do have some of the traits!

But am I the only one that can't figure out how those dumb plastic grocery bag dispensers work? It happened again yesterday. I needed ONE MORE BAG to finish. ONE MORE BAG. I could sense the person next in line getting frustrated with my grocery bag incompetence. Their eyes were like lazer beams piercing holes in the back of my head.

I was clawing and ripping, pawing and scratching until finally I was able to set a bag free from its metal prison.

There's got to be a better way!
 


 

Help the Bucksbee Family



This heart-wrenching message popped up in my Facebook inbox last week:

Hey Rocky.
You guys probably heard about it. My family lost our home on Monday. We lived there less than a year and we were remodeling it. We lost everything. It was me, my mom, dad, little brother, little sister with down syndrome, and my 2 month old son.
I was wondering, people are throwing us a benefit on april 6th from 1-7pm at lyrics in Carbondale. Would you be able to announce it?
Thanks so much.
--Diandra Bucksbee


The fire at Diandra's house in Carbondale happened March 24. Please spread the word about this weekend's benefit to help the Bucksbee family get back on their feet.

What: Bucksbee Family Benefit
Where: Lyrics 18407, 76 South Main St, Carbondale
When: Sunday April 6 1-6pm

Attention Bikers!



Finally! I finally kicked off the Spring season and went for a bike ride today...a very muddy bike ride. But if you mountain biking like I do, you know how much FUN mud can be.

One of my fave places to bike is the Back Mountain Trail in Dallas. It's well maintained. And if you time it right, you'll have the trail pretty much to yourself.

I'm always looking for new places to bike. If you're aware of any fun and challenging trails, please shoot me an email.

Get muddy!

Just wanted to express extreme gratitude to EVERYONE who came to see us open for Rick Springfield at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg on Friday! A bunch of you called in to the radio show Monday morning to say very kind words and we appreciate THAT TOO!!! Jackson and I had a blast opening for Rick and the Sherman Theater staff was wonderful to us as always.

Such thankfulness we have for all of you who support local/original music!!

3.31 Bridal Shower Gift Idea!

Hi friends! Hope you had a nice weekend! John and I spent the weekend in my hometown in RI so that I could attend a bridal shower on Sunday. One of my best friends from high school is getting married in May and had her shower yesterday. I ordered the wine rack from their registry, but wanted to take the gift to the next level. (This could be part of the reason why everyone says I'm over the top, I like to call it creative)

I can't take credit for this idea at all, I found it on Pinterest ... but love it and put my own little spin on it. Along with the wine rack, I gave her a wine basket of firsts! A bottle of wine for a few big FIRSTS she and her soon to be husband will have.

First Fight - a bottle of Clean Slate.
First Anniversary - a bottle of Monogamy
First Baby - Sweet Bliss
First Christmas Eve - Spiced Apple wine
First Dinner Party - Champagne!

Each bottle had it's own cute poem label to go with it! If you want to do this idea for a shower, you can print out the cute little labels on this website in a variety of colors. Totally free. Just scroll down to the bottom for the link. http://www.occasionsonline.com/bridal-shower-gift-wine-basket-poem-tutorial-free-download/

It was a big hit and a bunch of you asked for more info. when I posted it to Twitter! So here ya go! If you have any questions, email me! Amanda@985krz.com. All of the wine was found at my local PA Wine & Spirits! :)

Welcome to Jurassic Park!



Greetings from beautiful Costa Rica!  What an amazing place.  It's a must if you are planning a tropical vacation.



Sue and I just got back from 6 days in the Papagayo region of Costa Rica.  Here's the view from the lobby of our hotel.  Not too shabby.


Our iguana friend in a tree just outside our room.


Ocean view from our room at the Occidental.


Sorry Dunkin, but Costa Rican coffee rocks!  We brought back pounds.


These guys were also outside our room looking for food.  They are a member of the raccoon family called Cioti (pronounced Quah-tee).


And yes, they are super friendly and super cute.


The Costa Rican countryside.  It was the dry season while we were there.


Hunting for crocs.


We found one!


If you think the roads in PA are bad, wait til you drive in Costa Rica.



Crossing one of the hanging bridges in a rain forest.  Check out our guide behind me...on his cellphone.  Think about that the next time you drop a call.  He's on his phone, IN A RAIN FOREST!


Natural beauty.  The Bird of Paradise flower.


Sunset at Monkey Rock.


This is a Jesus Lizard.  Why the name?  He's got skills.  When attacked he flees by running on water.


More wildlife.  Monkeys are EVERYWHERE.


A 3-toed Sloth taking a lunch break.



Our Iguana friend again looking for a handout.


Beach time.


My favorite part of the trip...Arenal Volcano National Park.  All it needed was a few Raptors.


So prehistoric.  There are hundreds of volcanos in Costa Rica but this is one of the 6 that is active.  It last erupted in 2002, killing 80 people.  Real Estate is cheap! :)


Take only pictures.  Leave only footprints.  Costa Ricans, Ticos as they are called, take great pride in their country.  Tourism is the #1 industry, and they aim to keep it that way.  That's why the rain forests and wildlife is protected by very strict laws.

It was an awesome, WAY TOO SHORT trip.  We're already planning our another visit!

Say hello to over 100,000 of my closest friends!  The 53rd Annual Scranton St. Pat's Parade is in the books.

Here's a few of my pics from yesterday's craziness.



Chris Wallace at the Backyard Ale House for a bit of pre-gaming with Fishboy and I.


Remember this guy?  Former intern Snuggy


Fish is actually crossing his legs here.


This was the only part of the parade I got to see...the Bagpipers warming up.


Chris Wallace "Remember When"



"Keep Me Crazy"





What up, Boscov's?


She gets my vote for Best Dressed.


Big thanks to KRZ float sponsors The McCann School of Business & Technology.


Always insane rounding the corner near Kildare's and the Radisson.

Globies Rock Scranton



Big thanks to Principal Leonard at McNichols Plaza Elementary School in Scranton for being GREAT hosts yesterday.

Lissa & I brought Harlem Globetrotter Bull Bullard to the school to teach the kids the ABC's of bully prevention--        ACT, BRAVERY, COMPASSION.


Bull had the 3rd, 4th & 5th graders total attention while he was holding court.



It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for these kids to have personal contact with one of the World Famous Harlem Globetrotters.



Thanks again to teacher Sharon Volpe for entering the contest and especially Bull for doing such an awesome job with the kids.  It was a day they won't soon forget!
