It's a twister with teeth!

Good news SHARKNADO fans.  They'll be more sharks in the air next summer!  SHARKNADO 3 has already been given the green light.  Keep your eyes to the skies.  Maybe sharks will hit PA!

As we recover from Thursday night's shark attack on NYC, here's my favorite lines from SHARKNADO 2.


Tara Reid:  The shark kept chasing me, like he knew who I was.
Ian Ziering:  He didn't know who you were.  If he did, he would've run the other way.

Ian:  Anyone plays me in a movie, it's gonna be me!

Matt Lauer:  I don't want to alarm anyone, but there is a concern that New York could be facing a Shark storm.

Al Roker:  Think of it this way, this is a twister...with teeth.

Ian:  Even the Sharknados are tougher in New York.

Mark McGrath:  You know what it just did, don't you?  It jumped the shark!

Robert Klein:  This is the big apple.  When something bites us, we bite back.

Ian:  They're sharks.  They're scary.  And no one wants to be eaten.

We Rocked Knoebels



What a GREAT day of fun we had at Knoebels yesterday!  Early Thursday we filled a bus (THANK YOU JZ Tours) wiith littles that are on the waiting list with Big Brother/Big Sister of the Bridge.  The idea:  give kids on the waiting list a taste of what the mentoring program is all about.



Right after lunch, we let everyone loose at America's largest free admission amusement park.  It's Friday morning, and I'm still recovering!!!



That's my new buddy Dylan as we started our trip up The Flume.



I didn't get the memo about bringing a towel.



We helped celebrate the Twister rollercoaster's 15th birthday...by screaming & yelling.


I would've been lost without these 2...Liz and Pilar from BBBS!


Alan Stout from BBBS presented my boss OD and I with a few tokens of his appreciation. 

There are SO MANY kids just like the littles we had on this trip waiting for a match with BBBS.  That is why there is such a desperate need for volunteers to join the mentoring program.  Becoming a Big Brother has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.  And I promise it will have the same impact on you!

I can't urge you enough to get involved with this program.  A few short hours a month can have an amazing effect on a young kid's life here in NEPA.

If you'd like more info on how to become a Big Brother or Big Sister CLICK THIS LINK or call 800.955.4376.

Have a GREAT weekend!

July 23, 2014 ~ Gio and Frankie bring joy


It's been a VERY happy couple days for me! Two of the biggest reasons are 1) my best friend Desiree giving birth to a beeeeeautiful healthy baby boy last Wednesday - his name is Giovanni, he's an angel with a smile that never goes away! And 2) a TERRIFIC turnout for Frankie's Voice 5K on Sunday! This run/walk was in memory of 24 yr old Frank Bonacci from Dunmore who was killed last year at this time. All proceeds went to anti-violence and children's advocacy groups. We had the organizers and some of Frankie's family on the air with us on Friday - wonderful people!

And look for this race footage on Dateline at some point, the crew was there all morning filming us. I'm sure they're doing a whole episode on Frankie. Thanks everyone who made this such an inspirational day!

Jenis and I meeting Desiree's baby Gio!




Played a gig at Andy Gavin's the night before the race, BIG THANKS to my girls Missy & Jen Esken for coming out!


Frankie's Voice 5K Run/Walk!! Orange was his favorite color....


My boyfriend convinced me to walk instead of run. That's how you know it's true love.

Great job Scranton!!!



Wow!  It was a sea of orange at Nay Aug Park in Scranton Sunday morning for the 1st Annual Frankie's Voice 5K Walk/Run.


Frankie of course is Frankie Bonacci, who was brutally murdered 1 year ago.  What a show of support and solidarity.


Lissa & I were so proud to be a part of this event.  Way to go Scranton!!!  And GREAT JOB by Frankie's family & friends and all the volunteers that made this special day possible.


We're still waiting for the final total as far as participants, but I can remember getting passed by a runner with the number 838!

Again, AWESOME JOB!!!  I love to see the community come together and turn a negative into a positive event like today.

You Can't Take a Bad Photo in Maine



Sue and I just got back from an amazing week in her home state, Maine.  What a great road trip!
And yes, YOU CAN'T TAKE A BAD PHOTO IN MAINE!!!



Look closely.  Those are seals or sea dogs as they call them in Maine.  Our captain pointed them out as we took a day trip to Monhegan Island.



This incredible view is on Monhegan Island, an island accessible only by boat.  And as you can imagine, this point has been a favorite of painters for years.



The majestic Island Inn on Monhegan.  This classic Maine hotel has been on this spot since 1907.



The view from the porch at the Island Inn.



It wouldn't be Maine without lobster.  This is one of many little fishing villages you can find along the coast.



By far, the best lobster roll we ever had, came out of this little food truck in Cape Elizabeth.



One of 7 lighthouses spotted on our river boat cruise along the Kennebec.



A little roadside Americana in Midcoast Maine.



And our kids, Frankie & Sammi had just as much fun as we did!



If you are ever planning a trip to Maine, feel free to give me a shout at rocky@985krz.com

Crowd Pleaser!

Hi! Hope you had a great 4th of July weekend! I tweeted a photo of my famous Jell-O shots and had so many people ask how I made them, so that's what you'll find in this blog. I've been making these red, white, and blue Jell-O shots for a few years and EVERYONE loves them. If you prepare a few days in advance they are REALLY easy to make.
 

All of the little cups and lids are found at Party City ... it's the Jell-O that's the problem. Finding WHITE Jell-O is a chore, but if you're willing spend a little extra, I found Pina Colada Jell-O on Amazon and that's what I used! (It takes awesome too!) The trick to these jello shots is to let each layer color set in the fridge for an entire day before adding the next layer on top! For first timers - make jello like you normally would, but replace the COLD cup of water, with a cup of vodka or rum! I used a different flavor vodka for each color Jell-O!

In all, it takes 3 days to make these ... but trust me, it's totally worth it. They are a total CROWD PLEASER on the 4th of July! Save for next year! :) XO
