Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. We took an extra day to recover from the tryptophan hangover!
We celebrated on Saturday…Sue and I, my sister and her boyfriend. Even though there were just 4 of us, we had enough food for 10! What’s Thanksgiving without a fridge full of left overs?
While the turkey was cooking we took a short road trip to Brace’s Orchards for Apple pie and the best apples anywhere. Right around the corner from Brace’s is the place where we adopted our 2 new family members, Frankie & Sammi. We had to show my sister from NYC Blue Chip farm, a 35 acre no-kill animal refuge.
Saturday was such a beautiful day, all the animals were out getting fresh air. There were horses in the ring, dogs, some running loose, others in open pens. It’s definitely worth the trip if you are driving around the Back Mountain some weekend.
That's my sister Suzie doing her best to convince this horse that there's PLENTY of room in her Manhattan apartment.
Even though there’s just been 4 of us the last few years, smells in the kitchen instantly bring me back to the many Thanksgivings I spent in New Jersey with my Mom & Dad. Great memories.
Ever anticipate receiving a gift? It’s a GREAT feeling. You have all sorts of thoughts floating around in your head. With me: maybe this could finally be the cordless nose hair trimmer I’ve been dreaming about.
Today I was expecting a gift when I got home from work. But it wasn’t the trimmer. It was a little unwrapped something from the 2 newest members of our family…Franky & Sammi our recently adopted Terriers.
And guess what? Today was a Poop-free Wednesday!
Thanks guys!!! It’s just your 3rd day in our house. We’re getting adjusted to one another. And hopefully this is the start of a great relationship.
And forget the gifts. Just be there to greet me at the door when I get home from work.
That's what the 2 newest members of our family were screaming today as we let them loose in our backyard. Meet "Clyde" and "Dotti". We adopted these 2 Rat Terriers from Blue Chip Farms in Dallas.
Clyde is the 2 yr old Black/Brown Male, that is most definately the Alpha. Dotti is a 6 yr old female. She lost her eye in a car accident, but it doesn't slow her down a bit.
They had a great afternoon running in our backyard. And like typical Terriers, they tired themselves out! We're still getting used to one another and waiting for their personalities to emerge. Clyde is alot more outgoing and seems to think he's in charge. Dotti is a bit shy.
Our older dog Maxi seemed intrigued by these 2. She was barking at them, but I think only because they were ignoring her. All 3 seem to get along just great.
We found these guys at Blue Chip Farms, a no-kill shelter in the Back Mountain. Margie the owner is a saint. She has opened her 35 acre farm to dogs, over 100 cats, horses, rabbits, and who knows what else. If you are an animal lover, you should consider volunteering at Blue Chip. They could really use the help.

This morning we did Part 3 of "To Catch A Cheater".Â Lissa has a friend that suspects her boyfriend is cheating.Â She was going to confront the other woman Saturday, but her plans were snowed out.Â Now she is leaning toward forgetting the whole thing and giving her guy another chance.
Have you ever given a cheater a second chance?Â Good or bad, what happened after that?
Here's what out text club members had to say--
I cheated, got caught and she made me deal with it instead of leaving and Iâve never cheated since. Â I actually felt someone really cared and made me deal with it.
I cheated during a very bad time in my marriage of course assuming the grass was greener somewhere else. Thankfully my husband forgave me it took some time but we have moved past it. It has been 4 years and I can say this I WILL NEVER CHEAT AGAIN. It's just not worth ruining your family for. That being said if there are no kids. She should move on.
Don't cheat. If youâre bored then be a man and end it.
People that cheat do it because they are looking for other people to fill their voids. The more they take the more they take away from who you are. They make you feel worthless. Love yourself and get rid of him!
I think nowadays more and more men cheat. But if he is not emotionally attached to that person and didn't go looking for it then I do not see why you should not give a second chance.
Cheaters are like spouse abusers. They say they will change and for a while they do but then they go back to their old ways. It's a sickness. They need help. Get out while you can. You will be better off.
Had a bad marriage went outside looking to get away . Confessed then taken back . Now it is great and we are closer now than ever.Â I will never let it get like that again . We both agree that we have lost the trust but I feel I can earn it back. Words mean nothing itâs all in the actions.
Tell your friend dump the piece of crap boyfriend. Remember, "a leopard doesn't change the color of it's spots". He WILL cheat again.
When you forgive you pretty much say âWalk over me Iâm not worth muchâ itâs the same as if you were being abused once he cheats and you forgive he will just keep on doing it because he doesnât learn.
My husband cheated on an extended business trip, and I took him back because of our newborn. To my knowledge he's never done it again, but I definitely keep my guard up, which has made me less tolerant and bitchy.
Donât take him back. If he cheated he doesnât care enough about her feelings or her. Heâs not worth it.
I cheated, my husband gave me a second chance, and we are now happier than we ever have been. The experience made me appreciate what a great man my husband is!
I took him back and he ended up getting engaged to the other one and is now married, expecting a child and STILL calls me. Scumbag.
I gave my ex gf a 3rd chance and she still cheated! What a waste of 5 years of my life. You canât trust anyone like that
I was the cheater. I had a one nighter shortly after we started dating, he gave me a 2nd chance and 4 years later we are happily married with 2 kids. :)
This is the weekend for our annual Ghost Hunt.Â Weâve hosted a bunch of these over the years but this one has the potential to be the best ever!
Our destination is a 100+ year old house in Waymart.Â The owner has called us a few times over the last few weeks describing the strange goings on--windows have been busted FROM THE INSIDE, pictures have fallen and the entire family has heard voices.
The investigation begins with the following words from our friend Kevin of the Central PA Paranormal Research Association:Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â âWeâre going hot!â
That means all cameras, digital recorders and camcorders should be turned on.
Weâll have a full account of our latest paranormal investigation Monday morning.
If you would like to volunteer at the SPCA, please call 825.4111 or email:Â firstname.lastname@example.org.Â Volunteers must be at least 18, however, children ages 13 and older may work with the animals if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times.
A few of the SPCA's volunteers
And don't forget about the SPCA Open HOWL-SE this Saturday, October 29 Noon to 3pm.
We urge you to get involved anyway you can.Â You won't be disappointed, and the animals could really use your help.
Last week we spent some time on the air talking about Lissa's friend that suspects her boyfriend is cheating on her.Â The friend has decided to confront the other woman.
Personally, I think this is a dumb idea.Â What is to be gained by calling the other woman out?Â Does it make any difference if the guy cheated once, or if this has been going on for a year?
Lots of you disagreed.
Here's just some of the texts we got on this hot topic:Â Confronting the other woman...good or bad idea?
Absolutely not -â just walk away its not worth the energy or emotion. Once a cheater always a cheater.
I confronted the girl. It ended in hospital visits.
I met the other woman for coffee because I had a feeling she didn't know...she didn't..he was playing both of us...divorced now and she kicked him to the curb.
She should talk to her because maybe she doesnt know and she will dump his cheating ass too.
I would confront the other women! What if she really has no idea, if I was the other woman and had no idea I would want to be confronted!
If she does do it, donât tell the other woman she is his girlfriend until she gets her info.
Let it go. Move on.
As someone who has been on the receiving end of the cheater, I also wanted details. All I did was torture myself emotionally. I found myself wondering why he wanted her instead of me. Years later he told me it had nothing to do with me, it was his insecure nature. I think she knows all she needs to know.
In the state of PA it is illegal to record someone without their consent i would not advise your friend to record this man.
If they are married then approach the husband, if just dating LEAVE him ALONE. Drop him like it's hot.
If your friend can remain calm, then it's a great idea but if she even has the slightest thought that she will lose it, then don't do it. I agree to more info before she approaches her.
I did confront the other woman and it didn't make me feel any better. In fact it made me feel a thousand times worse.
I'd ask the girl! You will most likely to get the true story from her, cause he's not going admit anything...and I'd want to know details.
My husband cheated on me and I found out who it was. I contacted her and I was nice to her as much as it killed me, because u can catch more flies with honey. well she sang like a bird and it turns out he was lying to us both. He is with her now and I have the satisfaction of lmao because he is miserable!
I have confronted the other girl. she didnt know he had a gf. we both confronted him. he walked away with no gf!
I feel where your friend is coming from BUT if itâs over just let it be. It is what it is! Finding out details will only make it harder to get over the situation.
I did confront the other woman because she used to be one of my best friends and she lied to my face about it.
If that was me Iâd absolutely ask the other girl details so when I broke up with him I could throw it all in his face. Use it as ammunition.
Absolutely confront her!Â Not to fight but to be your own personal satisfaction. May show him that she, his girlfriend , is not a pushover.
Do NOT let her confront the girl. My last relationship ended because he cheated. I too wanted answers and it was worse knowing than if I would have just let it go. Karma had a way of giving him what he deserves.
Let it go. He cheated for a reason so why start trouble? Would u want him back? Of course not.
This Saturday night is our annual Ghost Hunt.Â Earlier today I received a message from Crystal, the owner of the house where our investigation will be taking place.Â She relayed the conversation she had today with Kevin from the Central PA Paranormal Research Association and his psychic partner Jo.Â Here's the message--
Today I talked to Kevin and his psychic. To say that we were all excited (and very creeped out) would be an understatement!!!
I was giving Kevin some info on the house and out of nowhere the psychic that was with him started telling me things that there is no possible way they could have known. Even I had to think about some of it for a minute.
She (psychic) said that thereâs a room that no one can get toâ¦the attic. She saw it, not me. She also talked to both my Grandmother and I believe both of my great Grandmothers. She saw the dog that my great Grandmother had and said that it is still with her, which explains what my dog is playing with. She also told me what my dog looks like. She saw my daughter and told me things that thereâs no way for her to have known about!
My Grandmother gave her messages to pass to me.Â At the time this started I got a bad chill. I asked if she was sitting next to me and the psychic said yes. My great Grandmother was Catholic and made some sort of bread in a basket that was only given at holidays or in time of need, she presented to the psychic with the basket.
All of us, my husband, Kevin, myself and the psychic were all saying holy s*&$! This went on for a good half hour before they 'left'. They also saw a male clock maker which would have been my great-great Grandfather. She saw the Indian burial grounds and even the horses on the property that are now buried (remember how long this property has been here, thatâs what they used to do). They knew about the scratching on the walls (you canât paint here) and said that it would continue to happen and may get worse.
Today both me and my husbandâs phone, after this call, will not hold a charge, even though mine is plugged in it keeps shutting off and saying "good bye".
They said there was a murder here, so I am investigating that. According to Kevin and the psychic this does not happen much if at all. So to say that the 29th will be interesting is quite the understatement!!!
They didnât even have to be here for them to see them!!! They also know that there are multiple people here. I have decided to wear a diaper that night as I am sure that I am going to crap myself!
One last thing. I was on the phone with Kevin who was relaying messages between me and the psychic. At one point the psychic was talking to my Grandmother, I told Kevin "I'm going to cry" and the psychic repeated the same sentence from the other side. How to explain this is beyond me..... but for we are now looking for a new house and we in the meantime are probably staying at a hotel!!!!
We were talking about Lindsay Lohan showing up late for her first day of morgue duty.Â This comes just a day after she got a nice tongue lashing from an LA judge that revoked her probation.
"I'm sorry for the confusion that I may of caused to those at the Coroner's office. Won't happen again, now I know where to go!" Lohan apologetically tweeted Thursday.
When is Lindsay going to learn?Â And how many second chances is this girl going to get?Â You committed the crime, now do the time.
That was the gist of what we said on the air.
And then one of our listeners responded with this text--
I am sorry but I am growing tired of people bashing Lindsay Lohan. She is someoneâs daughter and even if she is a star she needs our help and support. What if it was Rocky's son?Â Would you make fun of him or try to help?
Ok, we may have made fun of her makeup a bit, but she made herself an easy target.Â If thatâs bashing, so be it.
But letâs be real people.Â Itâs time for some tough love.Â When was the last time someone said âNo!â to Lindsay?Â Iâm thinking the word doesnât exist in her world.
If it WAS my son, sure Iâd be there to support himâ¦IN THE BEGINNING.Â But if things ever got to this point, Iâd tell the judge to haul him off to County lockup.Â I would love him just the same but would still want him to learn from his mistake and then get on with his life.
We found out today that we have a bunch of FREAKS that listen to the show!Â Actually, we all have our little fears.Â Here's the full list of UNSCARY THINGS that we're afraid of...
Rockâtwins, clowns, dolls with eyes that move Sueâballoons, mousetraps, jello Lissaâmice, big dogs, wrinkles
What UNSCARYÂ THING are YOU afraid of???

--Elevators... gonna get. Stuck in it or cable will break.
--I'm afraid of throwing up so much that I hate leaving my house.

If youâre a regular listener to the show, then you know about my love for the state of Ohio.Â I graduated from Ohio U in Athens, my son lives in Kent and Iâve been a fan of the Cleveland Browns and Indians all my life.Â But itâs time Ohio gets out of the dark ages and does something about their exotic animal laws.
By now youâve seen the images or heard the 911 calls:Â Exotic animals let loose in Ohio by their owner.Â 49 of these were shot and killed.
âItâs like Noahâs Ark wrecking right here in Zanesville, Ohio,â said Jack Hanna, former director of the Columbus Zoo.
Iâve been asking myself a few questions today.
Why are we allowed to have exotic animals as pets?
The owner of these beasts claimed to have been an animal lover.Â Why did he think it was ok to take them out of their natural habitat and put them in cages for his own selfish reasons?
Anyone know where I can get a Bengal Tiger?
All kidding aside, how was this so-called animal lover able to assemble such a menagerie of wild animals?Â Who did he call?Â How were these animals brought into the country?
It was a tragic ending to a very sad story.Â But it couldâve ended much worse.
These animals should have never even been put in this situation.Â They are WILD animals, and should remain in the wild.Â No so-called animal lover should be given the opportunity to turn his backyard into a makeshift zoo for his own enjoyment.
I've been meeting with Tom at Engle Eyewear in Wilkes-Barre the past few days.Â He and his wife Renee have an amazing selection of one-of-a-kind designer glasses.Â And that's the problem.Â They have so many cool looking shades, it's hard to decide.
Here's my final 4 picks.Â Which ones do you think I should go with?
I think I've already made my decision, but I'd appreciate any input.
Let me know of your pick in the comment section below.
Are you into the movie "Paranormal Activity"?Â Do you watch all the supernatural stuff on TV like "Ghost Hunters" & "Paranormal State"?Â Or maybe you think all this paranormal talk is a bunch of crap.
Either way, you need to join us this year on our annual GHOST HUNT with the Central PA Paranormal Research Association.
We've had a few strange occurrences over the years doing these investigations.Â One year one of our listeners was slimed.Â Another time a strange dog showed up and started barking at a basement window.Â We took photos of the dog and there were orbs all around its head.Â We watched a shirt on a hanger in the basement as it moved towards another of our listeners.
This year we have a few potential really good locations for the GHOST HUNT.
If you want to be with our team of paranormal investigators, send us an email with your name, phone number and reason you want to go.
We made it through another week!Â And this one got off to a colorful start.Â Sue and I celebrated Monday with food poisoning.Â Good times.Â I wouldnât even wish this on those wacko occupying Wall Street.
Imagine getting hit in the gut with a Louisville slugger.Â Then Mike Tyson does his speed bag routine on your head.Â And just to mix it up a bit, letâs throw in the cold sweats.
The both of us wonât be eating shrimp again anytime soon.
We had a lot of fun on the show Wednesday with the Corn Maze morons.Â Imagine getting so lost in a corn maze, you have to call 911.Â As one of our listeners pointed out, âitâs corn not concrete!âÂ They must be proud of themselves knowing the K-9 unit had to be called out to help them find their way out of a vegetable patch.Â I wonder who helped them find their car in the parking lot?Â
We helped tap the first keg at the Lion Breweryâs Octoberfest at Genettiâs in Wilkes-Barre.Â Tasty brew made right here in NEPA.Â If you want to save $5 on a ticket for the final night tonight, text BEER to 34-2-35.
Speaking of beer, Iâll be hosting the final Peroni Fest at Mendocinoâs Pizza in the Billâs Shopping Plaza, Daleville, tomorrow from 5-7pm.Â These are always a lot of fun.Â Weâll have special prices on Italyâs favorite beer, tons of Peroni giveaways, the Peroni girls AND get thisâ¦at 9 we give away a wheel barrel full of Peroni!!!Â Cheers.
Monday night TV is the gassiest night of the week! Last week Nancy Grace let one rip on DWTS, then this week Kris Humphries broke wind in Kim Kâs face during the Kardashian wedding special. Whoâs next?
We had to ask. Ever fart in an inappropriate place?
My dad farted in the candy isle and someone came down the isle and said "I can smell the chocolate!" we lost it!!!!!!!!
My fiance likes to fart next to me in a store and then walk away so ppl think it was me
When I first started taking dance classes I would sometimes let one slip out. I would fake an injury because I was so embarrassed
When I worked in the daycare during naptime was always musical with a lot of the toddlers. We used to call it shootin bunnies!!! They giggled.
When my husband was young his family went to a cave for a weekend trip. They could see their breath since it was cool, so his dad goes, can you see this? He lifts his leg and let's one rip thinking his wife and daughters were behind him. They turn around and find out it was an older couple with their jaws dropped. My MIL was across the cave and heard the fart and basically dropped to the ground laughing uncontrollably for awhile
My dad let one go in kmart and loudly blamed my mom. An older woman went over to her and said "Donât worry honey... I have gas too.â
At the chiropractors office while being adjusted.
Itâs happened to me in my local mcdonalds on the plastic benches which as we know makes it worse more reverb.... I just said holy cow did u hear that
During the peace be with you at church and the kids started cracking up
I was with my dad in Aeropostale and he farted really loud then blamed it on me in front of a bunch of people and they all ran away
Both of my little girls have started farting in public places and pointing at me going "ewww, dad!!" Karma
I farted in the checkout line at Kmart and walked away. The checkout lady looks at the next lady in line and waved her hand back and forth across her nose and points at me. Little
did she know that the next lady in line was my wife. Lmao! So funny. Good thing my wifey loves me.
I do it while I'm driving the bus. When I look up in the mirror you see the faces on the people behind me get all twisted
My boyfriend will "crop dust" anywhere and everywhere!! U don't know it until u walk into the cloud. Especially horrible in stores!! I just walk away and stay a few aisles away cuz I'm not taking the blame!!
Wow!Â Another amazing turnout for our annual Bras Across the Bridge fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.Â Breast Cancer survivors, their friends & family and volunteers from the Cancer Society joined us as we strung together hundreds of bras then marched across the Market Street Bridge in Wilkes-Barre.
It was one of the most beautiful Fall days I can remember.
The bridge was lined with bras of all shapes, sizes & colors.Â And there was pink everywhere...shirts, pants, hair, bandanas & glasses.
Once again, thanks for making Bras a huge success.
We will see you again, October 2012!
Our long line of supporters marching to the Market Street Bridge
I was always (and still am) a PC guy. I remember my ex trying to get me to convert to a Mac. Mac people struck me as Volvo driving, granola eating, and PBS watching elitists that viewed us PC users as knuckle draggers from another era.
I never owned a Mac, but jumped on the Apple bandwagon when I purchased my first Ipod. That was just the beginning.
I learned of Steve Jobs passing last night while checking Twitter on Steveâs greatest creationâ¦the IPhone.
Who knows what he would have accomplished in the next decade. Gone too soon.
Thank you for the gifts you left us, Steve Jobs.
(I still have my first Apple product)
Steve Jobâs greatest quotes--
âCreativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didnât really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. Thatâs because they were able to connect experiences theyâve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that theyâve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.â
(Wired February 1996)
âFor something this complicated, itâs really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people donât know what they want until you show it to them.â
(Business Week May 1998)
âWe made the buttons on the screen look so good youâll want to lick them.â
(Fortune January 2000)
ON THE ITUNES MUSIC STORE
âIt will go down in history as a turning point for the music industry. This is landmark stuff. I canât overestimate it!â
(Fortune May 2003)
âBeing the richest man in the cemetery doesnât matter to me â¦ Going to bed at night saying weâve done something wonderfulâ¦ thatâs what matters to me.â
(Wall Street Journal May 1993)
ON HIS COMPETITORS
âThe only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I donât mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they donât think of original ideas, and they donât bring much culture into their products.â
(Triumph of the Nerds 1996)
STANFORD COMMENCEMENT SPEECH 2005
âWhen I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: âIf you live each day as if it was your last, someday youâll most certainly be right.â It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: âIf today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?â And whenever the answer has been âNoâ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
âRemembering that Iâll be dead soon is the most important tool Iâve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything â all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure â these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.â
A website is reporting that MADONNA is the half-time entertainment at this yearâs Super Bowl. Â Â I will eat a bouquet of hydrangeas if this rumor turns out to be true!Â Madonna?Â Really?Â The Material Mom?Â Will she pull up in a mini-van?Â
Madonna would be a great suggestion...if this was 1995.
Do you have any idea who the first Pop/Rock act to play live at the big game?Â New Kids on the Block in 1991!Â Some of the better shows since then have been Michael Jackson, Aerosmith/Britney Spears, U2 and Bruce Springsteen.
And don't laugh at New Kids.Â Some of the half-time shows before that starred Andy Williams, Carol Channing, George Burns and Miss Texas 1973 playing the fiddle!
We asked for input this morning.Â
Who would be a better choice than Madonna?
Elton John & Billy Joel
A Nip-slip tribute band featuring Janet Jackson
Journey & Styx
The cast of âGleeâ
I’ve got to admit…days like today I consider myself pretty lucky where I work. We had the crew from Marley’s Brewery & Grill in Bloomsburg on this week’s Friday Morning Happy Hour. How can I complain when apps & beer show up in our studio?
You must check this place out.
Mike served up some killer Crab Dip, Crab Cakes & Chicken with Alfredo Sauce. Wow! I’m still feeling crab-tacular.
And the brews were out of this world. Brew Master Mark says they always have 10 on tap. I especially liked the Octoberfest and the Dog House Double IPA.
Here's the results of the PARADE MAGAZINE/OMG survey.Â Who's the Most Annoying Celebrity?
We asked, is there a celebrity MORE ANNOYING than Kim Kardashian?

And after about 1 Â½ months we FINALLY had another nip slip. Lifeâs little pleasures, right? First there was Nicki Minaj, then Kelly Rowland, and then we waited. Then late last week, model Naomi Campbell was getting into her car following a fashion show in London when she suddenly slipped a nip.
Unfortunately none of our listeners picked Naomi in our Nip Slip Pool, so we held a random drawing from all the entries.
Congrats to Rocky & Sue Show listener Kelly who wins a $100 gift certificate at Mirage Lingerie in Blakely.
Here's the proof--
DANCING WITH "STARS" I mentioned last night on Facebook that Nancy Grace should leave "the twins" at home.Â How funny is this?Â Some of you thought I was talking about her kids in the audience.Â
This morning Sue read a story about the new & improved Easy Bake Oven. They no longer have light bulbs. Did you ever bake a hockey puck sized cake as a kid? And do you still have a burn mark to prove it?
That got us talking about some of the other "dangerous" toys we had growing up. I remember begging my parents for a Crosman Pump BB Gun. What could possibly go wrong with having one of these as a kid? All of my friends had one. Of course weeks after getting one as a birthday gift we were shooting at our house and each other.
And remember Lawn Darts or "Jarts" as they were called? They were giant pointy darts with metal tips that you would try to throw in the center of plastic rings. And just like horseshoes, the other team would stand behind the ring.Â Again, what could possibly go wrong here?Â They were later taken off the market.
Ever get hurt by one of your toys growing up?Â Did you own any of these?
Stretch Armstrong.Â Looks harmless, but kids would each grab an end to see how far they could stretch it.Â Â And if one of them decided to let go...whack!Â
Fun experiments with Atomic Energy.Â Cool!Â And the right side of the package says "No Harmful or Explosive Chemicals".Â I think this is how the Una-Bomber got his start.
BB Guns.Â Luckily I never shot anyone's eye out.
And remember Clackers?Â They were glass balls on strings that you would swing back & forth to make a loud clacking sound.Â Sometimes the balls would shatter, or even worse, the string would break sending the lethal little ball into the air.
Hereâs an update on the work at Bernieâs daughterâs house in West Pittstonâ
Friday we were helped by volunteers from Northampton Community College in Tannersville.Â What a great group of kids!Â The team of 15 removed the drywall and got the remaining mud out of the basement.Â We alsoÂ helped the elderly next door neighbors.
The highlight of the day was replacing the American flag that hung from the front porch.Â Bernieâs motto is âThereâs no crying in the flood zoneâ, but we cut her some slack when she shed a few tears watching the raising of the new flag.Â The Stars & Stripes waving in the breeze gave us all reason for optimism among all the dust and mud.
âTeam Northamptonâ plans on returning Wednesday to begin power washing.
As I tell Bernie, donât look at the big picture.Â Take it day-by-day.Â There's a lot left to do, but we are slowly making progress.
Keep checking our Blog for further updates.
Removing the debris--finally!
Our volunteers replaced the flag out front with a new one

Monday afternoon Sue & I visited a friend whose business was destroyed by the flood in West Pittston.Â While walking through this neighborhood, we noticed a woman standing in front of a flooded out house.Â She looked helpless.
After talking to her for a few minutes, we learned that she was taking care of this home for her daughter who is serving in the Army in Afghanistan.Â Bernie obviously needed help.
There was a large pile containing the former contents of the home out front.Â AppliancesÂ were swimmingÂ in a stew of mud & water in the basement.
We decided on the spot to organize a crew of volunteers.
This is just the beginning of our efforts.

Thanks so much for making our 18 hour FLOOD RELIEF DRIVE a huge success.Â It was a truly amazing show of love and kindness for those affected by last week's flooding.
The stories from this weekend are endless.Â Flood victims themselves donated cash & much needed cleaning products, some with tears in their eyes as they contributed.Â Listeners drove up and didn't think twice about dropping a $100 bill into one of our collection buckets.Â 2 young girls from Mountain Top hosted a lemonade stand and raised $150.Â Kids emptied Piggy banks.Â Some of you made multiple trips inside Walmart to fill shopping carts with mops, brooms, bleach, gloves and other items needed for the Red Cross disaster kits.
Here's the stats from the Flood Relief Drive in Wilkes-Barre Township & Taylor:
*$17,500 in cash & check donations
*4 trucks filled
*The Red Cross estimates you donated over $200,000 in cleaning supplies for flood victims
Sue and I have been living in NEPA for over 20 years now and we have never witnessed anything like this.
But we have a long way to go from here.Â There are many other ways you can help the victims of this devastating flood.Â Please do your part whether it's by a donation of cash, clothing, much needed cleaning items or your time.
If you were like us, you came home to a dry place to sleep this weekend.Â Consider yourself fortunate.Â We do.Â Someday you might be in need of help from others.
Special thanks again to:
*Walmart in Wilkes-Barre Township & Taylor
*Jack Williams Tire & Truck

It has been an insane couple of days in NEPA and it is FAR from over.Â By now you've seen or heard about the devastation.Â The Entercom family of stationsÂ are teaming together to help.Â Please join us this weekend to help us collect items for our neighbors in need.
Sue and I will be live from the Walmart in Wilkes-Barre Township, Saturday Noon to 6pm but you can stop by the location nearest you.
Thanks for all the calls and texts this morning keeping us up to date on the flooding.Â And we hope you are safe at this point.
What started out as some minor flooding really changed rapidly this morning as the Susquehanna River started rising at record levels.
We went live to the EMA Headquarters in Wilkes-Barre at 6:30 as the announcement was made for the mandatory evacuation of Wilkes-Barre and other riverfront communities also affected by Agnes.
If you werenât around for Agnes in â72, youâre certainly getting a feel for it so far today.Â Hopefully the images of the 70âs wonât be repeated.
It was a slow go getting home today as some 65,000 scrambled to get out of the city by the 4pm deadline.Â Most of you kept your cool.Â We only came across a few inconsiderate idiots.Â One of them held up an entire line at the gas station while she ran in to do her mini-mart grocery shopping.Â Sweet.
I just heard from a friend originally from Wilkes-Barre.Â His Dad is in a nursing home that was evacuated.Â Guess where my friendâs Dad is now?Â On a cot in the lobby of the East Mountain Inn!
If you have any photos, please send them along.
And Iâd love to hear how youâre dealing.
Feel free toÂ comment below.

Motorists can check road conditions on more than 2,900 miles of state roads by calling 511 or visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, average traffic speeds on urban interstates and access to more than 500 traffic cameras. Regional Twitter alerts are also available on the 511PA website.
We spent a lot of time on the show Thursday talking about bullying in schools and ways you, as a parent, can help.Â Most parents agreed--you need to confront the bully, talk to someone at the school, and possibly meet with the parents of the bully.
Jeff Reese, head instructor at Scranton MMA & Self Defense had another suggestion.
He offered a free 1 month membership in his school's Anti-Bullying program.
If you would like to sign up your child (aged 4-12) for a free month membership, shoot us an email.
That never actually happened, and Iâm glad it never did. Nude in front of the kids was a big topic on todayâs show. I read this week that Heidi Klum lets her kids see her naked all the time and has no problem with it.
âMy kids see their parents naked all the time,â says Heidi. âWe are not shamed.â
OK, so maybe if my Mom was a supermodel I would change my tune...but seriously. If you accidentally see a parent naked, thatâs one thing. Your eyesight will eventually be restored. But I think itâs a bit much to have a parent walking around the house nude or barely dressed all the time.
Hereâs a few of the comments we got from listeners this morning--
I don't want to be naked in front of me!!!
Never on purpose. There was one time, after my surgery, where my then, 3 year old 'caught' me changing...never again
They would have nightmares.
It would ruin them forever!
I dont really see a problem with it, up to a certain age. I don't want my kids to be embarrassed of their bodies. I don't have a modest bone in my body though so that has a lot to do with it.
Hell to the no. I have a son and I especially don't want that happening!
I have a 11, 6 and 5 year old, 2 boys and a girl and I would never!!!!! It would scare them to death if they saw me naked.
My daughter is 3 and she does walk in if I'm getting dried off from the shower or will see me change. I can't use the bathroom without her in it it seems. When she gets older it will probably seem more awkward, but right now I don't have a problem with it.. of course she's a girl too..maybe if she was a boy it would be different
It's ok, I've been told I have a great bod, but I'm extremely self conscious that's why I only do it on Saturdays when I'm home alone
Can't stand 2 c myself naked. Definitely not in front of kids.
I don't have a problem being naked in front of my kids but my husband WILL not.It's how each of us were raised.
I practice semi-nude saturdays. I like lounging, the privacy of my apt, in just my underwear
I have 2 girls and they often see me naked. My husband is never naked in front of our kids. I also don't necessarily think its a gender thing. Its maybe more an aesthetic thing. A naked woman is just nicer looking than a naked man... sorry guys
No reasonable person flaunts their nakedness in front of their child but it is our Natural state
Common in my house but eyes up.
Americans are prudes that's why they get so upset about it. Europeans consider it perfectly natural not a shameful thing.
My girls walk in on me all the time. If my teenage son is in my room talking football nonstop all i have to do is pretend to get undressed and hes gone
Nakedness is no the problem it is behavior while naked that could be questionable.
I have two daughters and we get ready for school/work together in the same bathroom. Nudity is not an issue. The girls donât care but the boys run away
My mom does after a shower cuz I have 2 other sisters so we are all girls!
I dont have a problem w being undressed in front of my children however i have 2 girls if i had boys it would be a different story...but we all have the same thing...my kids are 12 and 17
Are you kidding? Iâm like a magnet....the minute my clothes come off my daughter appears...not my choice but what can you do?
You should not be nude in front of kids, that is immoral.
If you were listening in the 8:00 hour this morning you heard us reflecting on our days in gym class. I can remember how much I dreaded it. I always loved playing sports, but not competing individually with my fellow classmates.
This must be a Jersey thing, but in my High School we had color-coded gym shorts. The better you did in various physical tests (running, jumping, etc) the cooler color shorts you were given to wear for the entire school year.
If you were rockin’ Purple or Gold gym shorts, you were looked upon as Jim Thorpe-Lance Armstrong-Derek Jeter rolled into one. Just below that was Red & Green. And what did the future ham & eggers, computer geeks & couch potatoes wear? Shorts in a beatiful shade of prison Grey!
There we were, shunned from the rest of our gym glass in our colorless Grey shorts. You’d never see this in today’s PC world. But we wore them and we liked it. (Not really, I just had a Dana Carvey moment there.)
Did anything like this take place in your High School?
I’d love to hear all about it.
Talk of Gym Class got me thinking about this classic scene from the show “Freaks & Geeks”.
Have you been watching the Little League World Series?Â The kids from Clinton County are now just 1 win away from a trip to the US Title Game.
I canât even imagine what it would be like to be 12 years old and representing not only your state but your country in the LLWS.Â I used to freak knowing that my Dad was in the stands watching as I stood in the batterâs box.Â What must these kids be thinking with over 30,000 fans cheering when they take the field?
Watching the games got me thinking about my days in Little League.Â See that little 12 yr old wearing the #3 uniform at the end of the bench?Â That was me!
I loved playing baseball, but the baseball gods never granted me the skills to hit a baseball.Â I used to dread the days that our team faced 2 pitchers:Â Ricky Alexander & Michael Chico.Â A lefty and a righty.Â They were the Randy Johnson & Roger Clemens of my league.
A few years ago I went back to my old Little League field in North Jersey.Â What seemed like a Major League sized stadium when I was a kid now seemed so small.Â The trip brought back a lot of great memories.
I hope the kids from Clinton County have a chance to enjoy their time in the spotlight.
I just read online that one of the reasons nagging doesnât work in a relationship is that itâs often perceived as criticism, so your spouse may tune out making what you are saying ineffective.
That being said, did you hear the story Sue did in the news this morning? A dude in Sugarloaf Township robbed a bank then returned the money moments later thanks to his nagging girlfriend. She was waiting in his car unaware of what he was doing inside. When he came back with the cash she screamed at him to return it.
Good call. I get it.
You donât want to be riding shotgun while your boyfriend is speeding off holding a wad of cash fresh out of a bank tellerâs drawer. Remember the ending of âBonnie & Clyde?â
But thatâs an exaggeration.
I get nagged all the time for leaving a few crumbs of cereal in the box and a couple of drops of milk in the carton. And Iâm sure Iâm not alone.
But Iâve committed no crime. And no one got hurt.
Sue, if you ever see me doing something illegal, nag all you want.
But when it comes to cereal and milk, you might as well be speaking French.
Try this experiment this weekend: When youâre talking to one of your friends on the phone or in person, suddenly pause. Wait 4 seconds and see what happens. Itâs called 4 seconds of awkward. See how they react. Psychologists say it will make both of you stronger.
The Situation coined a new phrase on âJersey Shoreâ last nightâtwinning.
"When you got twins, it's cool. So, you're winning. But you're twinning, because you got two twin chicks."
Twins creep me out. Thatâs why I refuse to chew Doublemint gum. Add clowns & expressionless kids to the mix and youâve got the makings of a great horror movie. Rent the movie âThe Otherâ on Netflixâ¦youâll see what I mean.
Gotta love the crew at Bar Louie inside Mohegan Sun Casino. Our bud âSweet Peppasâ Shaun & bartender Nicole hung out on the FMHH this week and whipped up some amazing drinks. Somehow one of the martinis got launched into the air like a scud missile. Good times.
Sue and I will be hitting up the Pittston Tomato Fest this weekend. Donât miss the Tomato Fights tomorrow @ 1:30 in the Cooperâs parking lot.
And Lissa will be backstage Sunday for American IdolLive! @ the Arena. Weâll have audio Monday morning.
Great texts on this morning's topic. Gotta love kids and what will come out of their mouths when you're out in public.
>>My friend’s son invited his pre-school teacher over and told her "I hope you like beer and wine cause that’s all we have to drink oh yea milk too"
>>My ex girlfriend had a six year old. We're out at dinner and his food was too hot. He yells out: "Mommy blow me" for her to blow on his food to cool it off.
>>At JCPenney there was an overweight woman ringing up our purchase. My 3 y/o son says “Look Mom, she ate too much!” I wanted to run out of there! Lol
>>We bought my son Woody from Toy Story. We were out to eat one night and he brought Woody w/us. He looks up at the waitress and says “I have a big Woody.”
>>My son's embarrassing moment was when he was about 3 ½. We were in the check-out lane at the grocery store he was chatting with the older women behind us and he blurted out ( very loudly) that he had skidmarks in his underwear at school today and he just couldn't help himself!! I was mortified
>>My daughter used to sing “Asses to asses we all fall down.”
>>My son loves to announce loudly when u r in public bathroom “Are you poopin?”
>>My husband took our son to see Santa Claus and Santa asks him what he wanted and he goes a douche rag for his head. He meant dew rag. He screamed it pointing at a guy wearing one
>>When my son was small he was asked by our hair dresser if his mom was ever going to have another baby and he responded: "Nope my Mom is fixed!"
Itâs not easy saying goodbye to an old friend. Our dog Milo was just that and more.
We first met Milo almost 16 years ago. The overnight guy on our AM station WILK would always bring his cute new puppy to work with him. Weâd see this little Jack Russell racing up and down the hallways when we got into work at 5am. He was a ball of energy.
One day, Miloâs owner asked if we knew of anyone looking for a dog. For some reason he had to get rid of him. Sue & I thought about it for a day, and then realized we needed to adopt him.
Milo was like a spinning top from day one. Heâd race around our Wilkes-Barre apartment, jump 4 feet in the air if you held a toy or bone over his head, then suddenly wind down and chill in his bed. Such is the life of a Jack Russell.
Once we were waiting for our friends Tom & Gwyn to come over for dinner. An old creaky elevator ran to our apartment on the top. Somehow little Milo found a way to get on the elevator. He greeted our guests when the door opened on the first floor! He was that kind of dog--more human than canine.
Some of you longtime KRZ listener may remember Milo by his other name: âMilo the Greek.â Weâd bring him into the studio during football season and heâd challenge listeners in picking football winners. The Greek rarely lost!
Recently Milo developed a heart condition. Our vet said he could live anywhere from a few months to a year or 2. Milo went the distance. He was with us at home when his time ran out. Thankfully, we didnât have to make that ultimate decision that many pet owners face.
Itâs amazing how something so small can become such a big and important part of your life. Milo was with us when we climbed Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, hiked Rickettâs Glen and when we travelled to Maine every Summer & Christmas.
Weâll miss you old friend.
Here's some of our favorite memories of Mr. Milo--
Waiting for his appointment at the Animal Hospital
Milo always loved baking in the sun no matter how hot it was.
Milo & Maxi in our Woodlands hotel room when we moved back
from Orlando in '99.
Milo the Greek getting ready to make his Super Bowl pick.
Whenever Milo visited KRZ he was granted All Access!
Milo and his brother Louie owned by our friends Jamie & Erika
I don't know what cracks me up more about this video, Grandma Moses threatening to call the internet police, or the fact that she's shooting a video while her Grandson is throwing a temper tantrum. Either way, it kills me. And why was this video shot from this angle? Whatever you do Granny..."Keep those legs closed!!!"
Ever have a few drinks and then do a little bit of shopping?Â It's usually not a good idea.Â Last year we took listeners on a cruise to Bermuda.Â The first Sunday out at sea a bunch of us were watching football in the sports bar on the ship.Â Sue got bored, so she decided to look around the ship (albiet with a couple of drinks in her.)Â
We all couldn't believe what we saw when she came back 2 hours later--Sue carrying bags & bags full of cruise wear...over $300 worth of stuff!Â And these were all clothes she wouldn't even think of looking at sober.Â It was all returned the next day.
Ever been guilty of SWI...Shopping While Intoxicated?
*My husband bought shares in this condo building in Mexico at his bachelor party-- not only did he but all the guys with him did too!
*One night my parentâs family friends and I were hanging out and my dad had a few drinks in him and we convinced him to buy a puppy online.Â She is now 2 and her name is Porsha. He says it's his best mistake.
*Gotta love shop erotic on TV late at night especially after another dismal dating night at the bar. My friend amber had said earlier in the night that she's done with men and I get home thinking the same. Cue shop erotic and my bill ended up just over $300 for marital aids--I wish I had space to hide them
*I get drunk and buy crazy music on iTunes. Like music that I'm embarrassed to even ownâ¦like Bart Simpsonâs âDo the Bartmanâ.
*Dean Martin DVD's hahaha!! I used my debit card because they were only around $20.00. Then 2 months later they sent me 2 more & took it out of my account, $46.00!! I hurried up & cancelled after that.
*Ya think you look like a 10 in it till you get home and try it on the next day and you jaw drops to the floor
*A time share in Mexico!Â They give you shot after shot of Tequila and donât let you leave til you sign on the dotted line.
Well, it happened again today.Â There was ANOTHER nip slip on national TV.
Were you watching Good Morning America?Â Did you see Nicki Minaj's performance?Â And did you see a little somethingÂ extra?
Heads will roll...someone at the network will be drawn & quartered...and all because Nicki showed a little nippy.
And the funny part of this whole thing...this is the 2nd nip slip I missed!Â I remember Janet Jackson's Super Bowl performance like it was yesterday, but apparently, when it was money shot time, I must've gone for another beer.Â And this morning we had GMA on in the studio and again I looked away before the big moment.
I did see Nicki eat a turkey leg...but it just wasn't the same!

There's a new doll that could be on the shelf in a toy store near you, it's called The Breast Milk Baby.
It claims it teaches young girls how to breast feed. If this morning's calls or texts are any indication, the doll won't be a big seller in the U.S.
In a press release promoting the doll's introduction to the U.S. market, a spokesman writes that the company has "been asked by millions of U.S. women to offer the doll here."
Apparently none of these "millions of women" listen to the Rocky & Sue Show!
Here's a few random comments--
That is sick!!!!! I would never let my child have a doll like this!!!!!
I do not think that this doll is appropriate and if I had a daughter this young I would not buy it. I understand that if you breast feed your daughter may copy you but you don't have to buy a dodd especially to do it.
Let's kids be kids. We will soon be having a show 12 and pregnant. Why would a company even think of making a doll like that!
This doll is to advanced for little girls. Female issues like this should be taught by a parent or doctor not by a doll.. this is on the verge of making young kids want to become parents. So the teen pregnancy rates will probably sky rocket. I will not buy this doll for my daughter and any future daughters I may have.
Wow that is just as bad as pregnant barbie. Unreal!
The only place this doll would be useful is a Lamaze class.
Just read this story on CNN.COM and had to pass it along. I have friends that have dropped their Iphones in the kitchen and they stopped working. This is pretty amazing stuff. And in case you're wondering, this dude's phone was protected with an Incipio case.
(CNN) -- Jarrod McKinney's iPhone 4 -- a notoriously fragile device -- cracked when his 2-year-old knocked it off a bathroom shelf.
"I was like, 'Man! That's all it takes to crack the glass?' " he said.
So it's easy to see why McKinney, a 37-year-old in Minnesota, would be "just absolutely shocked" when that same phone survived a fall from his pocket -- while he was skydiving from 13,500 feet.
He found the gadget, its glass surfaces shattered, on top of a building about a half-mile away from where he landed with his parachute.
Joe Johnson, a skydiving instructor, said he and a few friends watched from the ground below the two-story building as McKinney raised the phone above his head in triumph after he located it using a GPS tracking app.
Just to be funny, Johnson decided to call the busted phone.
He didn't expect the call to go through. But it did.
McKinney felt the phone vibrate and started laughing.
"They were all like, 'It works! It works!'" he said of his friends watching his rooftop search from the bottom of the building
One of our listeners, Crystal in Wyoming, suggested we talk about CRAZY EX's on today's show. Wow!Â Â Hope there's room at the psych ward because the KRZ Text Club was blowing up over this.
Here's a few--
--I actually hated my dad's gf and she made my little brother cry for no reason and i scrubbed the hotel toilet w her toothbrush...don't mess w my family especially my little bro. she ended up getting cold sores.
--My ex slept with my mom after we broke up
--My ex poured skunk pee all over my new hummer on the interior and exterior, keyed "skank" into the back of it, and poured sugar in my gas tank. I couldnt get the smell out for months and had to replace my engine.
--I race dirt cars and my ex went and bought a racecar so she could wreck me on the racetrack haha she didnt succeed
--My ex tattooed my name on his arm after 9 days and spelled it wrong
--Slashed all 4 tires & poured paint thinner all over car. All the paint was on the ground in puddles. He was a major jerk.
--My brotherâs ex she found out he was getting married and she got a job at the restaurant the wedding was at and she put his meal in his lap and punched the bride
he tried on victoria secret on in the dressing room and sent me pics
--He was high on cocaine & said i put people on the roof 2 watch him & he ran around outside of the house naked 2 chase them. Happy ending - he now resides in lackawanna prison : )
So I tuned in to last nightâs All-star game, like any baseball fan expecting to see the stars of the game. But who were these guys on the field? The scorecards read like a âWhoâs whoâ of nobodys.
Each year, fans take time out to vote at their favorite ballpark or online. WE vote these players âinâ because we want to see them play. We the fan pay $12 for a beer and $6 for a hot dog at the game. We pay their salaries and have a right to see them play in what is billed the Summer classic. Classic? Itâs been far from classic the last few years.
I consider myself a pretty big baseball fan, yet I still had to Google âStarlin Castroâ when he suddenly took his place as the National League's shortstop. Sorry Cub fan.
It’s another busy weekend coming up.I’ll be hosting a Big Brother event at one of my favorite places to hang with our littles…Rich’s Golf Center in Wyoming.It’s always a blast cruising in the bumper boats on a hot day.And don’t even think of going near the air hockey table!We’ll be monopolizing it.
Later in the day Sue and I will be guest auctioneers for the 65th Annual Back Mountain Library Auction in Dallas.We’ll rock the mics at 6pm. Bid high...bid often. And here's a tip: get there early before the crowds do for the really good bargains. They always have an amazing selection of Antiques, Collectibles and new stuff at incredible prices.And the book sale and flea market tent is a can’t miss.
Where were you yesterday when the Casey Anthony verdict was read?Â I was trying to enjoy the final day of our 4-day weekend, but once CNN flashed the words VERDICT IS IN across my TV, I knew how I'd be spending the rest of it.
Sad to say, Iâve invested hours in this case.Â Richelle Carey, Mike Galanos, Jane Vilez-Mitchell, Vinnie Politan and the rest of the CNN talking heads have been my closest friends the last few weeks.
My reaction to the verdict was I'm sure like most of you-- stunned, speechless, upsetâ¦but the more I thought about what Iâve seen over the last few weeks, the more I wondered if the prosecution REALLY did prove their case?
All along I was hoping for a Perry Mason like outcome to this trial.Â But itâs only on TV where the defendant cracks and screams out âI did it!â
And thatâs the tragic part of this case.Â The members of the jury probably felt the same way you and I did after listening to hours of testimony, but in good conscience couldnât say Casey was guilty from the evidence presented.Â And I bet if you were one of the 12 jurors, you would've reached the same conclusion.
Hereâs what a few celebs had to say on Twitter after the verdict was announced--
Roseanne Barr (@TheRealRoseanne): âmiscarriage of justiceâ¦our system is broken and it sucksâdeath penalty should be removedâthatâs why she got offââ¦âvictory for all child murderers!â
Carson Daly (@carsonjdaly): âThat jury better get into hiding.â
Rainn WilsonÂ (@rainnwilson): âDear Florida, THANK YOU for freeing Casey! Sheâs now available for partying and babysitting!â
Sharon OsbourneÂ (@MrsSOsbourne): âCasey Anthony not guilty??â¦..itâs a disgrace. Sheâll probably get her own reality show now.âÂ
Kim KardashianÂ (@KimKardashian): âWHAT!!??!! CASEY ANTHONY NOT GUILTY!!!! Iâm speechless!!!â
The last one is my favorite.Â Kim apparently has a short memory and forgot that her Dad was one of the attorneys that helped OJ go free.
Seriously, when we're back on the air Wednesday morning (that's right, we're taking Tuesday off to recover), the first thing we're going to do is a finger check. And the answer better be a number greater than 9.Â Bonus points will be awarded for extra digits.
Have fun this weekend.Â And make our country proud when you're out celebrating.Â All of us will be looking for your Red, White & Blue self Sunday at the huge fireworks display (our marketing team call it "The Scrantastic Spectacular") in downtown Scranton starting at 4.
And watch for any FLAMING BALLS that just might be shot in your direction!
I was at the gym yesterday, mind wandering, when I started to realize that it was 2 years ago today that I was getting filleted like a flounder. June 30, 2009. I’ll never forget the day. That’s when I underwent heart surgery.
2 years later I’m running, biking & weight training like nothing happened. Wow, I think I may have just quoted a Tampon commercial from the 80’s! But it’s true.
Medical science still amazes me. And to think, they basically turned off my heart, hooked me up to an artificial one, all while my surgeon (thanks as always Dr. Casale) used his skills to repair my valve. Truely amazing!
Stay healthy, my friend.

After weeks of hunting around the internet and talking to friends that know cars, I finally made a decision.Â
Meet my new baby--a 2011 VW GTI.Â Here, have a cigar.
I absolutely love this car!Â I know everyone says thatâ¦must have something to do with the new car smell.Â The smell puts you in some sort of different stateâ¦a kind of euphoria.Â Then again, maybe itâs the fact that the bank will have their hand in my pocket for the next 3 years.Â
This car has everything I was looking for:Â gas mileage (35 on highway), speed, sunroof, and good looks.Â Plus, it comes with Bluetooth and plug-in for my Ipod.
And it's fun to drive!Â I see what they mean by FahrvergnÃ¼gen.
Thanks to Rob at Wyoming Valley Motors in Larksville for bringing it all together.
Finally, a little nugget from TV's best show has been released! "Breaking Bad" returns to AMC July 17 for it's 4th season. If you've never seen the show, go to www.amctv.com and get caught up. You won't be disappointed.
Here's the official trailer from the new season. I'm counting the days...
What comes to mind when you hear the number 7?Â Mickey Mantle?Â The 7 Deadly Sins?Â Seagramâs 7?
In a horse race, if you finish 7th youâre sent out to pasture. Â In the case of the KRZ team of paddlers in the Dragon Boat races, 7th was better than 8th.Â At least we didnât finish last!Â As our team members chanted when we returned to dry land, âWe sucked today, but we didnât suck the most!â
Dragon Boat racing was a big part of this weekendâs RiverFest on the Susquehanna.Â Even Mayor Leighton participated.Â His crew had such a strong finish they managed to flip their boat over.Â That was something watching the Mayor of Wilkes-Barre and his 19 team members drifting down the riverÂ toward the Market Street Bridge completely out of the boat.
I hope you had a chance to enjoy the river like I did this weekend.Â Sue and I and a friend dropped our kayaks in Harding on Saturday for the 14 mile trip to Wilkes-Barre. Â Â Itâs a beautiful trip that you must experience.
Our friend Donna asked, âWhen you drop your kayak in the water is it called putting out or putting in?â
We didnât have the heart to correct her!

Lunch break in West Pittston.Â That's Cooper's Cabana on the other
side of the river.
This morning we shared advice that each of our Dad's gave us while growing up.Â If you missed any of these pearls of wisdom, keep reading.
My Dad was honest.Â Once in Little League the umpire didnât show.Â They asked for a parent in the stands to volunteer.Â My Dad raised his hand.Â Moments later he was calling his own son out on strikes!Â Talk about integrity and honesty.Â Â One of my Dadâs favorite sayings was âDid you call the man?âÂ He would constantly get me job leads in High School, but insisted I follow up on them on my own.Â Â I can still hear his voice whenever I start to procrastinate.Â One final bit of advice my Dad gave me:Â Never, ever, under any circumstances text a photo of your wiener.Â I guess you could say my Dad was ahead of his time.
My Dad has always been a smart, strong man.Â He doesnât waste a second of his lifeâat 80+ years he can run circles around younger men.Â Heâs always accomplished something every day and still takes classes and goes to school to learn new things.Â He says be excited about your lifeâitâs not a dress rehearsal.Â There is no do-over.
My Dad was a teacher and I was always very proud when other kids would come up to me and say they loved him because he never played favorites. THATâS the most important thing he taught me: all people really ARE equal. Everyone deserves your respect and undivided attention when you interact with them. Always treat EVERY person the same, no matter the age, race, income, appearance, etc. My dad is a very fair and honest person. I take that from him.
If you missed this weekâs DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, here they are:
Sent to Principalâs office after making an obscene album cover in art class
Won the Miss Blueberry Queen Pageant in 7th Grade
Made out with Mark Slaughter of Slaughter when she was 15
Which one of us was lying?
This week it was Sue.Â Her parents convinced her to enter the pageant but some other girl won.Â Sue was actually happier that she didnât have to wear the blueberry crown.Â Meanwhile, Lissa never heard from Mark Slaughter again.Â And I gave up my career as a pornographer.
We just got the word on an upcoming tryout for the next season of SURVIVOR.Â If you think you have what it takes to Outwit, Outplay & Outlast, get your adventerous self to Mt. Airy THIS THURSDAY.Â We'd love to have one of our listeners represent NEPA on SURVIVOR!

Need to be inspired? Want a kick in the a-- to get yourself going to the gym again? Check out motivational speaker CRAIG DIETZ.
Craig was born without arms or legs but you would never know it. Craig skiis, bowls, fishes, hunts, and swims competively. Sue mentioned it in the news today--Sunday Craig swam the 4.4 miles in the Great Chesapeake Bay swim.
It's an amazing story. Think about Craig the next time you're considering blowing off the gym. I know I will.
I felt like a foreigner in a foreign land on Saturday. There was me, a Cleveland Indian fan, in a sea of pinstripes. I was one of a few Tribe fans among the 47,000+ packed into the Yankee Stadium on a misty day.
A fan in the parking garage suggested if anyone gives me crap just start chanting âRed Sox suck!â That sounded like a good plan.
There I was, walking through the Hall of Legends in the new stadium. I high-fived any Cleveland fan I could findâwhich wasnât many.
Either Yankee fans were on their best behavior that day, or things have changed since the last time I visited the legendary ballpark.Â Â All the fans were cool.
Even after one of our pitchers got tossed for plunking Alex Rodriguez in the hip, nothing happened. Beers werenât thrown in my direction and I remained in my seat, not suddenly projected like a missle from the upper deck!
We even hit up one of the Yankee bars outside the stadium after the game. Bronx Bomber fans were too busy pounding down $4 PBRâs (way better than the $11 stadium price) than to be concerned with someone wearing an Indians jersey.
I even had a chance to talk to some of the out-of-town Cleveland fans. They all agreedâthe day was hassle free.
Granted, NY vs. Cleveland isnât any great rivalry like Yankees/Red Sox or Phillies/Braves but overall it was a fun experience.
Maybe the Yankees 4-0 shutout of my beloved team had something to do with it.
Not a fun day to be an Indians fan
AÂ few of my people--"Go Tribe!"
So that's how the Yankees afford paying all those free agents!
Lissa went all Dr. Drew on us today and called for an intervention. She wanted to point out to thousands of KRZ listeners thatÂ Sue & IÂ both talk to ourselves while weâre in our office at work.
Does this make us crazy? (insert âPsychoâ strings here) Or isÂ Lissa the crazy one for thinking weâre wacked?
Before you order us âHis ân Herâ straight jackets and book our rubber rooms, check out some of the responses we got on the show--
Sometimes I talk out loud when I am trying to concentrate on what I am doing. It helps me think better.
All the time. Maybe Lissa is the one that is whacked.
Every time I do something complex I usually talk myself through it. Kinda worksâitâs like a how-to guide.
Hell yeah! Do it all the time- if I am mad at myself for something I have been known to point at myself while saying things like - dumb u or how stupid could you be! I think itâs perfectly normal ! Haha ! P.S. I work in the mental health field.
Glad this came up today now I know that Iâm "NOT" crazy. I talk to myself all day long.
I always talk to myself. I think that when I talk to myself the following is true:
1. I'm always talking to someone who is intelligent and
2. I'm always talking to someone who's going to listen
We all go a little mad sometimes, but itâs not from talking to yourself. Most therapists say itâs quite normal and a healthy way to work out your problems.
Sue even takes it a step further. She answers herself. Sometimes she plays the part of other people. Itâs like a Broadway productionâhair, makeup, costume changesâ¦the works! (kidding Sue!)
Iâd love to hear your thoughts on this. Or maybe I am right now in my own head.
We had one of our listeners suggest that we post our DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS in our blog after we give 'em up on Wednesday.Â Great idea!
Just last week the woman behind the counter at the beer store asked me:Â âIs Sue REALLY adopted?âÂ Ok, for the record, sheâs not.Â Her Dirty Little Secret that week was a total lie.Â And I never ate a rat's foot on a dare.Â There was some truth to that one, though.Â A kidÂ I went to High School with did...on a $20 dare!Â And to be honest with you, the cafeteria food wasn't much better.
This weekâs DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS--
Rock--Woke up naked in the back seat of my car at a Grateful Dead concert while in college.
Sue--StoleÂ my parent's car and was gone for 2 days.
Lissa--Is wearing my best friend's underwear right now.
This week I WAS LYING!Â I woke up in all sorts of strange places while in college, but never naked in my car!Â
--Raw Eggs...including the shell.
--Hot Dogs with Cottage Cheese
--Peanut Butter & Olive Oil on Salad
--The Peel of a Banana
--Pudding, Ketchup & Italian Dressing as a dip for veggies
--Hot Sauce on Watermelon
--Ranch Dressing & Hot Sauce on Hot Dogs
--Dipping French Fries, Chicken Nuggets & Cheeseburgers in Vanilla Shake
--Peanut Butter & Mayonaisse Sandwiches
--Mayo on Pizza
--Ketchup in Mashed Potatoes
I just opened up email and look what I found!Â It's pics from last Friday's LADY GAGA concert @ Good Morning America in NYC.Â Shana & Courtney from Mt. Pocono were our contest winners and sent some amazing photos.Â
We have a friend that is getting married this weekend. Monday she called us to ask for help--she got a case of Poison Ivy! Yeah, that's pretty crappy news days before your wedding.
So we had to ask--What disaster did you survive the week of your wedding? You guys came through big-time with your calls & texts yesterday.
Here's the best ones--
--The day of my wedding my car was towed while i was getting my hair done. had 2 get a ride to the tow place to get my car. i was so late i had to put my makeup on in the car and didnt have any jewlery on or my garter!
--My niece is gettin married on the 18th and we just lost her dj cuz he double booked!!
--I'm getting married this saturday the 4th, and i woke up yesterday with a huge ugly cold sore on my lip ..boo thankfully a good photog is scheduled
--I had a sore throat and went to the doc who said- you have bells palsy! I said i'm getting married 5 days! Bells palsy makes your lips droop and you drool a lot
--My 2 married aunts were caught hooking up with the 2 best men at the reversal dinner. I flipped out.
--We were to get married on the first day of our cruise 10 days before our wedding the cruise ship hit coral and canceled our wedding
--My maid of honor who was my bff for 12yrs wrote me a lettr stating she couldnt be in my wedding wich was 2 day before the wedding
--This one brought bacck memories. Night of my husbands bachelor party he got a blackeye. Needless to say i paid more to get his makeup done on the day of the wedding than i did mine. Still didnt cover that well lmao. Our photographer almost had a heart attack
--My EX husband went to OC Maryland to celebrate his bachelor party. He got in a fight, spent the night in jail and came home w a black eye.
--My husband almost cut the top of his wedding finger off about 3 weeks before wedding- his finger wad so swollen had to have his ring sized 3 sizes bigger
--The day before my wedding i got a spray tan. my skin was bright orange and streaky.
--We borrowed a friend’s Cadillac as our wedding car....it lost its brakes on the way to the church...had to call another friend to come pick us up on the side of the road.
--The dog chewed my heels for the wedding the week of! After panicking i found myself some white duct tape to hold the straps together. Everything turned out fine and no one even knew!
--My husband bought a new truck and it had five hundred miles on it when i crashed it into some one rear. It was the week of our wedding. And he still married me.
--My gas grill blew up in my face.. I had no eyelashes..
--My son pulled the fire alarm at my wedding! Thankfully it was near the end of the ceremony and the priest was nice about it!
--They were landscaping area in front of the church, which they weren't suppose to do until AFTER, so in my wedding video are these gardeners shlepping dirt
--I went into labor the morning of my twin sister’s wedding. I was the matron of honor. I didn't make it to the wedding. And to top it off my labor did not progress so I didn't have the baby that day. I did have him while my twin was on her honeymoon. So I missed her wedding and she missed the birth of her nephew.
--The night before my wedding we were on our way to the rehearsal and I realized neither of us picked up the marriage license!!! We had to call CongressmanKanjorski's office to get in touch with someone at the annex to open it up and get us a license.
Where were you when the storm hit yesterday? We've experienced some pretty intense Thunderstorms when we were in Florida and even tornado-like conditions while we were living in Colorado, but these were nothing compared to yesterday!
That was some heavy duty s*&% falling out of the sky.Â While I was running around shooting video I got hit in the shoulder by one of those things.Â Wow!Â It was like my neighbor threw a rock at me.Â No worries though, I stunned me, but I didn't drop my beer.Â WNEP said some of the hail stones were as large as baseballs.
Quick...get a rocks glass.Â That's some good ice falling out of the sky.
Former American Idol judge KARA DIOGUARDI was on Lopez Tonight talking about the time she stayed at Paula Abdul's house. She got a case of the late night munchies and wolfed down 6 brownies...6 POT BROWNIES!!!
Kara tells the story at about the 4:30 point of the video. Weeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Was that REALLY a Salsa band playing in downtown Wilkes-Barre?Â Sue & I hit the Fine Arts Fiesta on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre, Saturday. What a great event. But I never thought I'd live to see a Salsa band playing in the WB! Art, awesome food, and now Salsa music?
The sun was finally rockin' NEPA.Â How could the world end today?Â And the food was amazing.Â We finally had the chance to try Pazzo, a family run Italian restaurant which is minutes from the radio station on Rt 315 in Pittston.Â Great food and dynamite people.Â
This artist used found objects to create funky bird feeders.
One of my favorite pieces at the show.Â Sue was creeped out by it!
And yeah, we brought home a little something for the yard...a cool butterfly sculpture.
It's quite a site to see Public Square alive with people, music & food.Â And it was great to fun into some friends we haven't seen in a while.Â Don't miss out next year!
Justin Timberlake hosts the season finale of SNL tomorrow night. AND the musical guest is Lady Gaga. Gaga fans have been camped out since Tuesday morning in front of 30 Rock trying to get in to the show.
If you've seen Justin before on SNL, you know this has the makings of a good one. And from what I've heard, Gaga is in a few of the sketches.
Just a thought...does anyone watch SNL live anymore? Sunday mornings for me consist of coffee, the newspaper and SNL. Don't forget to set your DVR.
Would you wear a diaper and race down the KRZ hallway like a baby?Â These guys would!Â Congrats to our 3 BABY GAGA contestants--Courtney from Mt. Pocono, Nick from Pittston & Jim from Duryea.Â The BABY GAGA race made for an exciting 10 seconds of radio.
And Courtney won V-I-P passes & hotel for his friend Shayna to check out LADY GAGA next Friday morning on Good Morning America.Â Look for these 2 little monsters up front at the show!
Meet our competitors:Â Courtney, Nick & Jim
It's Post Time!
And they're off...
It's Courtney, Nick, then Jim
Courtney jumps way out in front
And your winner is Courtney!
Courtney's friend Shayna just found out she won.
Shayna still can't believe she's our V-I-P for Lady Gaga in NYC
Yesterday morning we were talking about the full-blown Hollywood production known as the birth of Mariah Carey's twins.Â Nick Cannon revealed that he had 2 video cameras, lights and a mixer pumping out a live version of Mariah's "Fantasy".Â Check Ebay.Â You might still be able to find some programs for sale from the "Birth of the Century".Â :)
What kind of show went on in your delivery room?Â Here's a few of your comments--
>>I had a janitor come in my room to patch hole in the wall. When I asked him what he was doing. I told him to get the ---- out of my room.
>>I gave birth the day The Bachelor premiered for the 1st time & as the doctor was trying 2 open me up, her & everyone else in the room was all into the TV. Needless 2 say I didn't give birth until 10:15pm ... go figure, no one wanted 2 miss the show
>>I delivered on Election Day so on the way to the hospital my husband stopped to vote.
>>After 3 hours of pushing, my son just didn't want to "leave" me, so the doc used the vacuum on his head to aid his evacuation. The suction cup came off mid push/pull and the doc nearly fell on his a$$
>>I was helping my wife count and breathe and I started to get a little woozy and counting all wrong. Then Donna noticed that I didn't look to good and in the middle of her excruciating pain turned to me and asked me if I was all right. I thought that was real cool although I felt like a wuss.
>>Lisa's water broke at the gynecologist, the Dr told us don't drive like a maniac to the Hospital because labor should be 8 hrs for our first kid, so I stopped at McDonalds on the way, I went thru the drive-thru and you had to see the look on the girl handing me my hash browns and looking at Lisa holding her stomach breathing in pain, I was yelling at her to give me my food my wife is having a baby!
>>When I was delivering my 1st son, the Dr came in and asked if some med students could come in and observe. Being on the verge of delivery and in unexplainable pain I sat up and said, "I don't give a sh*t!" Suddenly ***6*** medical students came in to watch!!!! 1 of them actually assisted in the delivery. I'm just happy my crotch didn't appear on YouTube!
Hope you had a great weekend despite the less than favorable weather. Friday I kicked things off with a Weyerbacher Â (great microbrewery from Easton, PA)beer tasting @ Krugels Deli & Beer in WB Twsp. They were Friday's Premium Perk--hope you took advantage of that amazing deal.
Krugel's is like a candy store for big kids!Â This is just a small selection of their 1100 different kinds of beer.
That's me with my bud Bosco who works at our sister station WILK.
Saturday IÂ vegged onÂ the couch for most of the day.Â That's where the birds come in.Â Â I watched a really bad movie onÂ SyFy--"Roadkill".Â This movie was SO BADÂ I couldn't stop watching it.Â The premise?Â A bunch of 20 somethings are touring Ireland in a rented RV.Â Â Gypsies place a curse on them in which a giant bird tries to kill them one-by-one.Â NoÂ surprise this movie had great dialogue!
Chick:Â Will you calm down.
Dude:Â How can I calm down, our best friend was just killed by a giant bird!
Sunday I hit the pavement for theÂ 6th Annual RUN FOR THE RED in Stroudsburg.Â Â The rain finally stopped when it was time to start the race.
Shout out to my running mates, Lisa the Marathon Mom and the rest of the NF Endurance Team.Â Â Good times, great people.Â
So it finally hit me that I need to make the move to a more fuel efficient vehicle.Â I love my Nissan Xterra, but I spend so much time filling up at Sheetz I know everyone that works there on a first-name basis.
And here's the car I'm thinking about--it's the new Honda Civic SI.Â It gets about 30 mpg on the highway and I think it has a real sporty look.Â But it's a Civic!Â Is this a CHICK CAR?
Am I being fooled byÂ this cool lookingÂ interior?
First Wolf Blitzer on CNN, then the First Lady AND NOW...some guy in my neighborhood doing THE DOUGIE!
Here's the way it went down.Â I went for a run yesterday on our day off and saw 2 guys working in their yards.Â Â Â One of the guys stopped, put down his rake, and started swaying his hips in front of the other guy.Â What was I witnessing?Â Was this a signal that it was Miller time?Â Was the guy demonstrating Romeo's hip action on DWTS?Â Or, as I thought, was he showing his neighbor how to do THE DOUGIE?Â
I wish I couldâve heard the conversation.Â If he wasn't showing him how to do THE DOUGIE, what could he have been talking about?
âHey Bill, check out this new move I tried out with Madge in the bedroom last night.Â Itâs a sure Home Run!â
See, this is why I like running in the neighborhood.Â It's stuff like this I'd miss if I was driving!
I wish my Mom was still here so I could call or visit on Sunday.Â During the last few years of her life, my sister and I would always plant flowers in my Mom's yard on Mother's Day.Â I think I will do that this Sunday as a way of remembering my Mom.Â Sorry Mom, I don't have a green thumb, but I'll be out there anyway!
All Mom's have their little sayings.Â My Mom had her own.
Here's a few that come to mind this morning--
You'll have toÂ face the consequences.Â ( I can't remember how many times I heard this on a Sunday night whenÂ I hadn't finished my Â homework, project or paper for school.)
Here come the weary travelers.Â (Whenever Sue and I visited, that's how I remember my Mom greeting us.)
While you're up...Â (She would say this while we were all SITTING DOWN! :)Â "While you're up, can you get me a few ice cubes for my wine.")
Listen to your Father.
That's a sharp jacket.Â (What is it about Mom's and the word "sharp"?Â The jacket was was plaid Mom, andÂ really notÂ that SHARP!)
Go ask your Father.
Hey Schmendrick.Â (It's a Yiddish term.Â Google it!)
The terrorists are already outraged--we killed their spineless leader. The photo will further offer closure to those that lost someone on 9/11. Release it on OUR terms--it will get out anyway. Think of all the horrific images from Sept 11. The OBL photo is a drop in the bucket compared to that.
Here’s what some of you had to say—
John C…It's not a good idea to release the picture. The photo itself will be used for martyrdom. Why bother to give them the satisfaction. Plus the photo, if publicized, will be copied and reposted everywhere. If it's as gruesome as they are saying it is then it's not a good idea and I don't want to see it personally.
Mike G…Well, I am more offended by Obama's STATED reasoning than that we're not going to see the image. He says because it will "effect public opinion in the middle east". REALLY! Lets get down to the truth and get past all the PC stuff
Nikki A…I think there are some people out there that will say, without a photo, we don't have actual proof that he is dead. Personally I wouldn't care how gruesome the photo was I would like to see it
Faith N…I may be in the minority here, but I truly believe Bin Laden was injured back in 2001 during the raids on Tora Bora and died in December of that year... this monster is dead, sure - but he HAS been for YEARS!
Kaitlin E…Even if they released one, people STILL would have conspiracy theories...
Thomas W…We want proof!
Jamie…I think the pictures will only outrage the terrorists and since we have our service people over there still, we need to think of them and NOT release them!
Rebecca E…I think to avoid a public backlash by people saying their children were exposed to gruesome images that scared them for life, and also avoid all these virus sites, the picture should be released, but only on a government website. This way, those who want to see it can, and those who don’t want to see it, won’t have to.
Boobs, blood & brawling! The JERRY SPRINGER SHOWÂ was everything we expected and so much more.Â After about an hour wait, we were led into the theatre where Jerry tapes his show on Monday & Tuesday.Â The floor manager gave us all some pre-show instructions...stuff like when toÂ chant "Jerry, Jerry", when to boo, and even when to yell "slut"!Â Â Â Jerry came out to warm up the crowd before the show.Â He wa a genuinely warm & funny guy and doesn't take what he doesÂ too seriously.
Then the real fun began.Â We taped 3 segments, all of them featuring guys that cheated on their wives.Â Â Was itÂ real?Â Probably not.Â Â But it was fun to watch.Â Â At one point, one of the big beefy security guards was bleeding from chin, a guest had a bloody nose, a hair weave was flung across the stage, water was thrown and boobs came out.Â Classic Jerry.
They told us the episode would air anytime between the next 5 days & 5 months.Â Hopefully our crowd was worthy.Â We'll keep you posted.
Both Springer & Maury Povich tape their shows at this theatre in Stamford, CT.Â Jerry told the audience, even though he & Maury work in the same building, they only bump into one another a few times a year.
Here's the famous Springer set.Â Thanks to our friends at FOX56 we were moved up to the 2nd row!
Jerry & the entire KRZ crew after the taping.
Here we are in some alternative universe as Springer guests!
The man, the myth, the legend.
Until next time, take care of yourselves and each other.
Thanks for making Saturdayâs KICKIN IT FOR MUSIC a success.Â The final figures arenât in yet, but your donation along with the Cross Valley Federal Credit Union's will go a long way in Â helping 3 area schoolâs musicÂ & arts program.Â Keep the arts alive!
Our team stunk up the kickball diamond.Â We lost to The Ready Set 4-1.Â I managed to score our teamâs only run as ourÂ MVP KellyK knocked me in from 3rd base.Â Kel was a threat to be reckoned with both at bat and on the field.
After the game & concert I met a friend at the Arena Bar & Grill for a few post-game brews.Â Sam the manager, knowing I like IPAâs, insisted I try a new one from Dogfish Head called Hellhound.Â Itâs a tribute to blues legend Robert Johnson.Â That sounded intriguing, so I ordered one.Â Â Tasty stuff.Â And it should be.Â When the check cameÂ IÂ found outÂ it'sÂ $25/bottle!Â Better ask next time.
I hit up the Pens game right after that.Â One of the ticket takers saw me and screamed:Â âRocky, whereâs your white shirt?âÂ Oops.Â Actually, I had planned on buying one at the game.Â Great job Pens and goalie Brad Thiessen. Â They blanked Charlotte to tie up the series 1-1.Â This is the year the Cup comes to NEPA.
Big week coming up!Â Weâre taking listeners to the Springer Show today.Â We should have plenty of stories in the am.Â And tomorrow is âSharpie Moustache Tuesdayâ.Â Sue pays off her "Dancing with the Stars" bet by spending the day wearing a Sharpie moustache.Â Pics & video to follow!
I remember as a kid how excited I was on game day.Â Iâd polish my spikes then put on my Little League uniform.Â Mine said BPOE Elks on the front.Â I didn't know what that meant, only that someone was nice enough to sponsor our team.
I knew I'd never be a big league ballplayer, but it didn't matter on game day.Â All I had to do was put on that uniform and I felt just like a Major Leaguer.
I was reminded of my Little League days this morning when we were talking about the reported arson at the Little League complex in Stroud Township. Â The project was just 2 months away from completionâ¦a project paid for by donations that took 6 years to collect.Â And now, nothing is left.
WNEP talked to Little Leaguer Cody Yarnell.
"When you attack little league baseball, that's an attack on our community and that's just wrong," he said.
The 12 year old is dead on.Â And I certainly hope the jack-hole(s) responsible think about that.Â Think about the 650 kids with big league dreams like mineâdreams you stomped on with your stupidity.
Instead of jail time, make it their punishment to raise money to have the complex rebuilt. Iâd like to see them cut grass, clean parks, wash cars and do whatever it takes to have the complex replaced.
Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call Monroe County Crimestoppers at 1-866-370-1518.
Tomorrow morning @ 8 we debut a brand new feature/contest called DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS. Got your attention? Good.
We will each reveal a little something about ourselves that you probably haven’t heard before. Even if you’re a long-time listener of the show you might be surprised by what you hear. And to make it even more interesting, one of the 3 of us will be lying.
Nudity? Sure. Alcohol inspired embarrassing moments? Definitely. Incidents that made our parents proud? Not quite.
Weâre going on SPRINGER BREAK to the Jerry Springer Show and we canât wait!Â But what are we going to wear to the taping?
When you think of the audience of a Springer Show what comes to mind?Â Wife beater t-shirt?Â Unlaced work boots with cut-off jean shorts?
Well, guess what?Â Thereâs an actual dress code for the show!Â Hereâs what was emailed to us this week:
Youâre going to be on TV Dress your best!Â Please absolutely NO T-shirts, no white clothing, no ripped jeans, sequins, hats, jogging suits, velour pants, and NO LOGOS of any kind.Â We do encourage colors.Â Bright colors look best on camera.Â We have the right to deny anyone seating who does not follow the guidelines.
Really?Â Dress your best?Â For the Springer Show?!!!Â No velour jogging suits?Â I thought that was required dress for a Springer audience member.
Hmmâ¦if you run into me in the Menâs section of K-mart this weekend, now you know why!
Imagine having your favorite band perform in your garage! Wouldn't that be like the coolest thing ever? Think about it. You call your friends and neighbors, ice down some beers, and suddenly THE FOO FIGHTERS are rocking out...in YOUR GARAGE! Even cranky Fred Wilson from down the street is there. You promised him plenty of Genny Light if he promised not to call the cops.
THE FOO FIGHTERS recently hit the road on an 8-city tour. But they weren't playing arenas or stadiums. They were playing the garages of 8 contest winners.
Here's the FOOS playing their new song "Rope" (which is killer btw) in a garage in Yonkers, New York. Coolest. Thing. Ever.
This is a first. Lissa revealed on the air yesterday morning that she named Sue & I her emergency contacts. Ok, Lissa moved here from Michigan. Her closest family is in New York. And she considers us family--that’s cool.
But I see a few problems. If there is a TRUE emergency, Lissa will call Sue. I understand and have no problem with that. It’s a girl thing. But you know what will happen? The same thing that happens when I call Sue during the day—she’s already on the phone. If I don’t get a busy signal, I’ll get a pleasant voice informing me that her mailbox is full. And if Lissa really needs help, she’ll know better than to leave a message. So you know what that means? That’s right…she calls me! I’m next in line, Number 2, the Vice President.
So Lissa…save yourself the trouble. Need bail money after a wild Friday night? How about a second opinion on that spleen surgery? Or more realistically, did you lose your keys for the umpteenth time? Who you gonna call?
Coming back from a pretty amazing weekend. I was among the 3000 runners in the Jersey Shore Relay. Our NF Endurance team had over 60 runners in the race. And it was quite a sight seeing all the neon jerseys! Our Pocono crew ran the Marathon Relay...Seaside Heights to Asbury Park.
We didn't see Snooki or Bruce but we did find a few of their old haunts!
Bruce played here!
Snooki did something fowl here!
Like the beer stand at a concert...the port-a-potty line pre-race.
Temps were in the 40's and the wind along the beach was gusting as high as 40mph.Â Ideal running conditions! :)
Here I am doing what I can to stay warm before my leg of the marathon
Here we go!
The mind is willing...let's hope the legs are.
Where is everyone?Â Oh yeah...they ran passed me!
My 4 1/2 mile leg is in the books.
The entire NF team post race @ the Asbury Park Convention Center
Was it worth it? Absolutely not. Am I glad we went? Absolutely!
Charlie came out to a standing ovation. The crowd was well lubed, some wearing "Sheenius" t-shirts they just plopped down $30 for. A couple of guys were sporting Cleveland Indians "Vaughn" jerseys, paying homage to Sheen's role in "Major League".
Within 20 minutes, and too many boring hotel stories, the crowd turned. They started booing. They wanted manic, out-of-control, tiger blood Charlie...instead they got sober, here's my life story Charlie. He said he was there to tell "the truth." Most of the 6000 at Radio City Music Hall didn't want to hear it.
Here's Charlie riffing on the time he stayed at a seedy NYC hotel--
"I had a dream that I invented Scotch tape. And I performed CPR on a supermodel in a heroin coma."
"She was in the coma, not me," he added.
It got laughs.
Charlie told a story about the time he and Nicholas Cage were raising Hell on a cross-country flight. Nick was on the mic saying he was the pilot and Charlie was in the head wondering what to do with the bag of Coke he had in his pocket--
"My balls were sweating like a gerbil at a Richard Gere convention!"
The crowd got louder. Charlie then went to the bench and pulled out the video we've all seen on YouTube--Charlie's reworking the 20/20 interview. The Goddesses made a brief cameo. Sue turned to me and said she felt sorry for him. He couldn't control the ugly crowd. Where was the Warlock? Where was the Adonis DNA?
Charlie ended the show with his Bucket list as the crowd started filtering out--
"I want to adopt Nick Nolte as my son."
"I want to drive around New York in a taxi cab, dressed as Travis Bickle."
"I want to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge wearing a parachute. I'm not opening it, just wearing it. I'll live."
"I want to play Radio City on a Friday night. Oh wait...I just did!"
Not a good start to Charlie Sheen's TORPEDO WHATEVER HE CALLS IT tour over the weekend. Cheers turned to boos, people walked out, and one "fan" was overheard on the way out saying: “Dude, that was seriously the worst thing I’ve ever witnessed.” What were you expecting?
From the clips I watched this so-called "tour" looks like it was thrown together during one of Charlie's booze-induced playdates with his Porn pals.
Extra security was added for last night's show in Chicago. Some are even saying the tour will be shutdown this week. And who's "winning"?
Here's a clip from Charlie in Detroit Saturday night--
I was watching the news this week when I heard a siren. WNEP had one of their reporters out live on the street and the siren sounded like it was from a passing police car. I ignored it. When they went to commercial I still heard it.
Maybe there’s a fire nearby in my neighborhood. But the more I listened, the more I realized it wasn’t a fire engine. It was a continuous siren that seemed to be coming from the same place.
Must be someone’s car alarm I thought. 20 minutes passed and I still heard it in the distance.
By this time I had started making dinner. The siren blared.
I stepped into the driveway to investigate further. It definitely wasn’t the security alarm on MY truck—that beeps. But it was coming from the same direction as my vehicle.
The muffled sound made me think that it was my neighbor’s home security system from across the street. How annoying. Maybe he’s not home. Should I call someone?
I took a few steps toward his house and then it hit me. The siren wasn’t coming from my neighbor’s. The sound was coming from inside my vehicle.
Then I remembered. My bullhorn! I had left it in the back of my truck from an event I did last weekend. It must have fallen over and activated the built-in siren.
Here it is in all its glory...the lamest BIGFOOT video ever. Thomas Byers shot this video in the woods in North Carolina.
The Bigfood Research Field Association (who knew there was such a thing) said the video is a fake. Way to put yourselves out on a limb, guys.
According to Thomas: ”One thing I know is the smell of it was horrid. It smelled like a cross between road kill and a skunk. And it did not like the fact that I was there on the road with it. In the video you can hear it snarl or growl at me as it crosses the road.”
I'm no expert, but I swear I saw that same Gorilla suit for sale at Party City!
Last Summer I learned I had a relative that I never knew existed--my Great Aunt Celia.
She immigrated from Russia in 1911 when she was 17. 7 months later she lost her life in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in NYC. She was one of 146 victims
Last Friday was the 100th Anniversary of that fire. We were there with the other family members to show our respect.
From the beginning, it seemed like Celiaâs spirit was there with us. Within minutes Sue found my Great Auntâs name written on cloth similar to what was used in the factory.
I stared up at the 9th floor of the building, clearly marked with purple ribbons. The women of the 9th floor were faced with a similar decisionÂ as those in the World Trade Center on 9/11âbe burned alive or jump. My Great Aunt chose the latter.
The NYC Fire Department raised a ladder to the 6th floor to symbolize how high the ladders reached at the time of the fire in 1911âway short of the workers waiting to be rescued.
March 25 is not only the anniversary of the fire, but my sisterâs birthday, and the same day that my Mom passed away 3 years ago.
After having lunch w/ the family members of the victims my sister suggested we go somewhere else for dessert--the famous Veniero Italian bakery. Michael Hirsch, the HBO researcher who contacted our family about my Great Aunt, overheard our conversation.
"It's funny that you would choose that bakery. One of the victims of the fire lived in an apartment above the bakery in 1911!"
REASONS FOR WOMEN TO GET EXCITED ABOUT MARCH MADNESS
It all starts tomorrow…March Madness. That’s the NCAA basketball tournament. Hoops will be ALL OVER your TV for the next 2 ½ weeks. It’s the most exciting time of year for a sports/basketball fan.
But if you’re a woman not into b-ball, why should YOU get excited?
Here are a few reasons I came up with--
1--Guys think it’s hot if you can talk brackets. Get in a March Madness pool at work. Just pick your favorite cities, states or schools. You’ll probably do better than most guys!
2--Hot muscular college guys in shorts. OK, the shorts are down to their knees, but they’re still shorts.
3--Fun with numbers. It’s easy to sound like you know what you’re talking about if you use the following expressions: Sweet 16, Elite 8, Final 4
4--Dick Vitale. “Dicky V” is a basketball announcer & icon famous for such catch phrases as “It’s awesome, baby!”, “Diaper dandy” (sensational Freshman), “Dipsy-doo dunk-a-roo” (fancy slam dunk) and “Human Space Ship” (big player).
5--Think of it as American Idol meets Dancing with the Stars. Teams are voted off. And you don’t have to waste your time voting.
6--Do you like going to the Woodlands or the Hardware Bar & ripping up the dance floor? Well, the tournament is also called THE BIG DANCE.
7--It’s your chance to be SMARTER THAN THE PRESIDENT. This is the 3rd straight year President Obama has filled out a tournament bracket for ESPN. He says all 4 #1 seeds (Duke, Kansas, Ohio State & Pittsburgh) will make the Final Four. Prove him wrong!
Did I really hear a JUDAS PRIEST song on Idol last night? Yeah, I think I did. And James Durbin really rocked out on âYouâve Got Another Thing Cominââ.
Hearing that song again reminded me of playing it on the radio. I havenât thought about those days in a while.
It was my first radio jobâ¦morningsâ¦on a little 3000 watt station in Parkersburg, WV.
The station was in an old movie theatre right on the main street of downtown. The building was supposedly haunted but I never saw or heard anything.
It was the 80âs, so we played everything on vinyl. Thatâs right, records. We cued them up ourselves and we liked it!
Like Beck sang, âWe had 2 turntables and a microphone!â It was my first gig so it was cool.
Thinking back, it was like radio in the Mesozoic Era! We worked out of a little closet. Our turntables were mounted on cinder blocks to keep the arm from jumping across the record whenever we closed the studio door. And we would plug our headphones into a receiver from a home stereo unit. Pretty high tech.
Little did I know then when I was cueing up that record by JUDAS PRIEST, I really did have another thing coming.
Biff! Bam! Zowie! Those are the actual sounds of me boxing yesterday.
Yesterday I got to box with my personal trainer. And you know what the best part was? She didn’t hit back! Lissa actually shot Mt. Dew out of her nose when I told her this.
I think the last time I had the chance to fight was in 4th grade. Ronnie Fischer didn’t like the way I walked the halls in school. He was the tough kid at George G White Middle School in North Jersey and thought I was trying to “out cool” him. Ronnie wanted me to meet him behind the basketball courts so he could teach me a lesson. I guess he thought I wasn’t worth it, because this “fight” never happened.
Ronnie was a bad little dude, even for 4th grade. The famous Ronnie Fischer story went something like this: One night before closing he hid in one of the dressing rooms at a local department store. The store closed and Ronnie spent the night there. For some reason that made him a legend and you just didn’t want to mess with him!
OK, back to my boxing. If you do cardio, you know what a drag it can be. And it doesn't matter which piece of equipment you use...cross-trainer, treadmill, bike...it can be monotonous. But boxing? Wow. What a great workout AND you have a blast doing it. Especially when your partner doesn’t hit back!
We couldn't keep up with all the calls & texts from you and your Dumb Things that Annoy You. Great job contributing. And we hoped it made you feel better!
Me--People that wear flip-flops to work! It's a combination of the annoying sound they make, and the ugly/dirty feet.
Sue--People that flip their wipers up in the air when they park their cars on snowy days.
Lissa--Concert goers that wear a band t-shirt to a show by a totally different band. "Dude that's Aerosmith on stage, not The Bee Gees!"
Here's some of yours:
--When u shovel ur a-- off and the snow plows just come by and plow u right back in.
--Jerks who have the bass turned up so loud in their car that I can't hear my own music with my car windows closed. (the are overcompensating for a small penis I'm sure).
-- People that think they know more then I do about my own child.
--When people talk on their cell phones in the public restroom. Drives me nuts.
--When people say "It is what it is".
--People cracking their chewing gum every 2 seconds!!
--People who wear clothes that are 10 sizes too smaill. I don't need to people's jiggly parts and overly white legs.
--When your kids sit there and say "Mom Mom Mom!" and when u finally say "What?" they say "Nevermind."
Sues looking over my shoulder ...she seems to be all fired up about something, so I'll let her take over.
Sue here...So we all have things that bug usâ¦I have a problem with monkey see monkey do. One of the early morning people at the radio station started putting his wipers straight up in the airâ¦.supposedly so they donât freeze.Â Then today when I come in there's 6 cars with wipers in the airâ¦â¦PA LEEZ! Warm your car upâ¦..it looks silly.Â Agree?
FYI...I talked to my mechanic about this wiper thing.Â Wait til you hear what he had to say!Â We'll talk about it Tuesday morning.
My Dad & Vince Lombardi are linked for life. They never met & I bet the only thing they had in common was a love for football.
If youâre not up on NFL history, Vince Lombardi was the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers. He won the first 2 Super Bowls as their coach.Â The trophy awarded to the winning team is named after him.Â It has been since 1970.
I read this week that 78% of all Americans will be watching Sunday's game.Â I'll be one of them.
Once again this year I'll be watching the game with mixed emotions. It was Super Bowl Sunday 5 years ago that I lost my Dad. It seems like yesterday yet it seems like 100 years ago. If you've ever lost someone close, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
My Dad got me into football when I was young. I still remember watching the 1964 NFL Championship as a 7 year old. It was the last timeÂ our team, the Cleveland Browns, won an NFL Championship.
As a kid growing up in North Jersey, the local high school (which I would later attend), would play their cross town rival on Thanksgiving day. Even in the snow my Dad would take me. This is where my love of football first took shape. Iâve been a fan ever sinceâ¦thanks to my Dad.
Iâll be thinking of you a lot this weekend, Dad. And hereâs hoping someday soon youâll be smiling down on me as OUR team finally plays in the big game.
I somehow always find myself at the grocery store the day before a storm hits. And I kind of like it. I love people watching, and this is one of the best times to do it.
It’s great fun watching people getting all freaked out over the approaching weather. And the way shoppers were talking yesterday, I’d really hate to be a local weatherman.
“Last time they said we were gonna get a blizzard we got 2 inches.”
“Yeah, those guys on TV never seem to get it right.”
“I remember when I was a kid we’d have school anyway. And we didn’t have school buses like the kids do today.”
I managed to keep my cool as I waited for the woman in front of me in the self-serve checkout line. She tried 3 times to get her debit card to work. I checked my Twitter account on my phone and took a few deep breaths.
When I finally made it out to the parking lot I just about stepped in the middle of 2 women ready to come to blows. From what I could gather, a woman in her 60’s was backing out of a parking spot and almost tore the bumper off another woman’s car. Screaming from inside her vehicle wasn't enough. She proceeded to get out and confront the other woman face to face.
I was loading my truck with groceries at this point. But still the freak show continued. As the 2 cars were waiting in line to pull out of the parking lot, woman #2 got out of her car again. Still not satisfied with her initial tongue lashing, she ripped into the 60-ish driver again, this time quoting full sections out of the PA Driver’s handbook.
Parking lot rage at its finest! And available free at your neighborhood supermarket before the next storm hits.
I just finished readingÂ Lissaâs Blog about hecklers at comedy shows.Â And now I understand why our night turned out the way it did.Â She jinxed us! :)
We all went to see comedian Lewis Black @ the Scranton Cultural Center.Â Lewis opened the show by hintingÂ that some people in the audience might not get his âactâ.Â This triggered a response from the jack-hole sitting directly in front of us.Â
âWhat act?â the nimrod screamed.
Welcome to Scranton, Lewis.
I love when one idiot with a loud mouth tries to become the star of the show.Â And the sad thing, Lewis had to call this guy out whenever he spoke up.
We came to see one of our favorite comedians, not listen to some obnoxious knuckle dragger.Â And what made the night even more bizarreâ¦the dung-beetle was there with his Mom!Â I bet sheâs proud.
I told the mouth that roared to keep it down.Â That kept him quiet or a few minutes.Â But the urge to be Mayor of Annoying-ville was too strong. Â He yelled some nonsense again.Â Lissaâs date then said something to the doofus.Â Again, that worked, for a few minutes.
SoÂ Professor Dillweed,Â thanks for spoiling a great night of comedy.Â I'm sure Lewis Black will have fond memories of NEPA because of you.Â Nice work.Â Next time why don't you stay home & watch Cops.Â Maybe you'll see yourself on TV!
The jury is still out on this season of AMERICAN IDOL as far as I’m concerned. Though I’m loving Steven Tyler’s off-the-wall comments, it seems like they’re going a bit overboard with the sob stories.
Last night they featured the story of Chris Medina. 2 months before their wedding, his fiance was involved in a serious car accident that left her with severe brain damage. It was a horrific tragedy. And Chris did the honorable thing and stuck by her side.
He performed The Script's "Breakeven" for her. But how would his performance have been judged if their wasn't a backstory? I'm not trying to be harsh here. I just wish we'd get the chance to judge the contestants more for what they do on stage then off.
Here's the story & performance from last night's show--
So did AMERICAN IDOL go too far last night?
Here’s some of your thoughts from our Facebook page--
--It bothered me that Fox used the poor guy's/girl's story to keep viewers interested by teasing it the entire 2 hours during the lead-ins to the break. I don't mind them doing the story itself, i understand this is TV, but it's also exploitation and I think Fox could care less about her condition, they're just doing it for ratings. That's a little sickening.
--Didn't think they went too far at all, not to mention when the three of them went over to her, and Steven Tyler whispered in her ear, shows that they are human as well. He has a great voice and cudos to him for sticking by her, not sure if many people out there would do that! That is true love!!"
--Hey Danny Gokey had a story just as sad and he made it to the top 3 with his beautiful voice, not because he lost his wife!!!!!
--Sad sob stories don't influence me. I watch and enjoy the auditions but wait until the auditions are over to decide who I would like to win.
--The only thing that is bothering me, as a season on whole, is that I read that we were not going to hear any back stories this year....I know for a fact that we don’t start voting this year, until the Top 12, no more voting for Top 36 contestants, half of which we have never even heard (or saw) before, and the ones we did see, having an advantage because they already have fanbases established from their stories/face time on A.I....at least, that is what I read about the changes this year.....but, Chris Medina still has my vote..regardless of when I'm allowed to start voting!!
--Personally speaking, I am looking to be entertained with each episode I watch. When that night's episode is through, I want to feel like my hour wasn't wasted. A good back story does weigh heavy for a shows contestant, some might argue an unfair advantage, but I truly believe that that ALONE win not make a season winner.
--No Way!!!! He is by far my early on favorite...for his voice first, story second! What an incredible person for sticking by her side!!!
--Very sad story, the dude has a great voice but I thought it was a singing competition, not a pity party. I hope the guy goes far, but by his singing abilities...not pity. Danny "Jokey's" sad story was what people talked about first...not his voice (not that he was all that good).
--Absolutely not. The back stories are the main reason that I watch the show. A good cry every now and then is very cleansing for the soul. :0)
--No way! I hope that guy makes it to the top 24 at least. I have to tell you I cried... Most would have walked away from the situation.. True love for sure!!"
What do you get when you combine an old couch with a pair of skis? SKOUCHING of course! It’s been a brutal Winter. I can’t think of a better way to enjoy it. And you don’t even have to get off the couch…just drag it to the nearest snowy hill.
Our SKOUCHING event is growing closer to becoming a reality. Star Medical dropped off 2 leather couches yesterday. And they also tossed in 2 sets of skis.
Here's the list of CHEESY PICKUP LINES from yesterday's show.

Do you have any Irish in you?Â Would you like some?
You might not be the best looking girl here, but beauty is only a light switch away.
Do you have a band aid? Cuz I scraped my knee when I fell for you.
I know i'm not the best looking guy here but I'm the only one talking to you!
Heavy penguin..... I just wanted to say something that would break the ice.
Do u know karate? Cuz ur body is kickin!
Was ur dad an astrounat? because he took all the stars and put them in your eyes.
Are your parents chicken farmers? Cuz you sure know how to raise a c*&%!
You want to come back to my place for pizza and sex?Â After she says "no" you reply "What's the matter? Don't like pizza?"
I asked a girl to buy her a drink.Â She saidÂ I have a boy friend. I saidÂ I have a gold fish. Her reply "what?" Â I said: Â "Oh I'm sorryÂ I thought we were talking about stuff that doesnât matter."
Do u have a map cuz i got lost in ur eyes
Are you a parking ticket, because you have âfineâ written all over you.
Did the sun just come out or did you just smile?
Is that a mirror in your pocket? Because i can see myself in your pants.
Here's the deleted scene from Monday's JERSEY SHORE with the chick from Allentown. Molly Burnett (the girl in green) tried picking up Snooki at the t-shirt shop and beachside bar. Then she followed after her when Snooki went on her drunken romp on the beach. Gripping television!!!
I went into last nightâs premiere of AMERICAN IDOL with low expectationsâ¦and guess what? Idol, you didnât let me down.
Is this the year we feel sorry for all the contestants and give them a pass? It seems like talent is on the back burner. Sue brought out a good point. She was most entertained by the singing goat in the Capitol One commercial! Baaaaaaahhhhhhh.
I do like the addition of Steven Tylerâ¦especially when he asked one of the contestants if they ate paint chips as a child! Nice one Stevie.
Jennifer Lopez looked AMAZING. And I think we were dead on yesterday morning when we predicted sheâd be the Season 10 version of Paula Abdul. But Jenâ¦hereâs a word to add to your vocabulary: No! Try using it. And pleaseâ¦did you REALLY remember that first chick? âMe and Mark were sitting at home going âwhy didnât that girl go through?ââ Whatever.
If you're wondering if I'll still watch Idol this season, the answer is yes. I wouldn't want to miss Steven Tyler hitting on 16 yr olds. Pretty creepy Uncle Stevie.
Wow! Have you heard whatâs happening in Camden, NJ? Itâs the 2nd most violent city in America and now they are making it even easier for the scum of society to act up. The city just laid off Â½ of its police force!
If youâve even seen a concert on the waterfront you know youâre one wrong turn away from some real nice neighborhoods. Did I really just see a bunch of teens using the engine compartment of an abandoned Buick to grill burgers? Well, if you plan on seeing Dave this Summer, better pack a flak jacket.
I was born & raised in New Jersey. New Jersey I've been defending you most of my adult life. Iâve heard all the jokes. (Exit 168 if you need to know) But come on Garden Stateâ¦get your act together.
Jersey Shore. The Real Housewives. Joe Piscopo. Now this?
As Wanda Sykes once saidâ¦
âDo you know how dirty New Jersey is? You drive thru New Jersey youâre gonna get a lump on your breast. Better get a Mammogram at the toll!â
I still canât believe all the uproar over Ricky Gervaisâ job as host of the Golden Globes Sunday night. Thereâs talk that he wonât be invited back. Hang on Foreign Pressâ¦you asked him to host in the first place. And not just once but twice!
Once critic from the LA Times wrote:
âGervais was busy defining the role of the perfect host by defying it. Poking fun at big stars is in the job description. But televised teasing requires a lightness of touch or else it quickly becomes bullying."
Câmon people. You arenât curing Cancer. Youâre actors. You play dress up for a living and get paid boat loads of cash. Why donât you use some of that bankroll to buy a sense of humor. Last time I checked Pauly Shore wasnât using his!
Wow...we have a connection to Leslie Nielsen! A friend of ours originally from Swoyersville, co-wrote Leslie's last movie. RIP Leslie. It's a campy comedy "Stonerville". And it also features a cameo by everyone's favorite Hollywood schlub, Pauly Shore!
I haven't seen the flick yet, but did watch the trailer. It looks like it's got comedy potential. The straight-to-DVD release will be available this Friday. And as Pauly says in the film: "It's just too much for mere mortals to handle!"
Here's a web review:
Though at first off-putting in its slickness and cheap humor, Stonerville quickly builds a weird head of steam by shifting uncontrollably between outrageous viral videos and other reality-bending scenarios. Plenty of nudity, sex jokes and gratuitous pot smoking mean Stonerville would be great for your next movie party. Outrageous, sexy and at times hilarious, it can't help but be Recommended.
If youâre a football fan like yours truly, youâve got to be totally psyched about this weekend. Even if youâre not a big fan, WATCH! Itâs the Divisional Playoffsâ¦3 out of the 4 games are great ones. If a team wins this weekend, they're 1 step away from the Super Bowl in Dallas!
Hereâs my picks:
Steelers over Ravens Being a Browns fan, I HATE to pick Pittsburgh, but theyâre the better team. Man I hate those Terrible Towels. Theyâre playing at home. Look for the Steelers to win by a late Field Goal.
Patriots over Jets New England is a far better team. And they have the better coach. They also got a gift when the Jetsâ Antonio Cromartie ripped Tom Brady in the media this week. How about shutting your mouth and playing some football? The last time these 2 teams met it wasnât pretty. Pats by 17. Â
Packers over Falcons This is probably the toughest pick of the weekend. I had to go with one upset. And I love Clay Matthews, Jr. It could go either way. Green Bay looked great against the Eagles, but almost blew the game in the last minute. And, Atlanta is playing at home. Flip a coin. Pack by 1. Â
Bears over Seahawks Everything went right last weekend for Seattle in their huge upset over the defending champs, New Orleans. Thereâs no way they can do that 2 weeks in a row, right? Chicago by 10.
Have fun watching the games. And if you REALLY want to win some money, disregard any of the above drivel!
Whenever we meet you guys there's ALWAYS 2 questions you ask:
1--Are you guys REALLY married?
2--What do you guys do after the show ends at 9am?
Yes, we are married. And if you're a regular listener to the show, you can probably tell! :) But what about after the show? Here's the first in a series of behind the scenes videos of us hanging out in the office @ 9am unwinding, goofing off and occasionally working!
As I begin to write this I'm interupted by snow...snow on the TV.Â Crap...just lost my satellite signalÂ Gotta go brush the snow off the dish right in the middle of the Green Hornet marathon on Syfy! Pretty cool watching Bruce Lee in action again as Kato. Search for it online if you have any plans on seeing the Green Hornet movie starring Seth Rogen this weekend.
Thanks to everyone that did their part clearing out the milk section of my neighborhood Weiss market. Nice work! It still amazes me when thereâs any threat of snow (in this case 4â), people prepare for an Apocalypse! You know the mantra: âMilk, bread, eggsâ¦milk, bread, eggs.â Maybe you know it in its short form: âFrench Toast!â If the end of the world is coming, we gotta make sure we cook up the biggest stack of French Toast ever.
Glad to see a lot of the schools are planning for snowy day and are throwing in the towel early. Sue & I could never understand why some stubborn administrations wait until the last minute to make up their minds. Why not give the parents more time to prepare?
Fun in the snowâ¦here we go again. Drive safe people!
Never mind searching...here's a classic Green Hornet clip featuring Bruce Lee as Kato!
Sue & Lissa are really bothered by this video from the TLC show "Toddlers & Tiaras". During the Jan 5th episode 2 yr old Mia Grande paraded around the stage wearing a cone bra ala Madonna. Is it too much? And what's worse? The stage Mom turning her child into a future sexpot or the adults screaming in excitement as the toddler strips down to reveal her skimpy gold outfit?
Some say videos like this are a magnet for pedophiles and other sleaze balls. But before you criticize the TLC show or this video, think about the photos of your kids that you just uploaded to Facebook. Is that any better?
I ran into an old friend Friday night @ the Arena Bar in WB. He used to be our neighbor when we lived in South WB and now lives in Northern California in wine country. Pretty weirdâ¦I had no idea he was going to be in town. Apparently he sent out some sort of Facebook invite to tell all his friends to tell us he was going to be @ the Arena Friday night. Who does that?
I know Iâm guilty of not calling people on the phone, but if I was on the other side of the country Iâd make an effort to contact friends on a more personal levelâ¦at least send via text!
It was great seeing you Slappy, but give us all a heads up next time!
If youâre a beer lover like myself, youâve got to check out the big cow on 309 in WB Township. Actually itâs Krugels Georgetown Deli & Beer, but if you have trouble finding it, just look for the big cow.
This place is like a candy store for big kids. Theyâve got hundreds of microbrews, ipaâs, stoutsâ¦plus beer on tap from some of our local breweries. Youâve got to try an Atomic Punk from the Berwick Brewery. Krugels carries over 1100 different beers! And if thereâs ever a brew youâre looking for, just ask Joe the owner.
I love this time of year as the football playoffs kick into high gear. And Iâm glad Iâm not a betting man because I picked the Saints & Colts on Saturday! Wowâ¦both Super Bowl teams already out of it. At this point, I like Atlanta & New England for the big game in Dallas. Sorry to see the Eagles lose, but our dogs WERE smiling when Vick threw that last minute pick!
So we’re trying to put together a “Dumb Stuff” show for Tuesday morning. Sue can balance things (including a toaster) on the flat spot on her head, Lissa can stick her ENTIRE fist in her mouth (girl’s got skills) and I have a no hurling streak.
If things go right, we’ll be joined in the studio by a dude that can pull a small chain thru his nose and out his mouth, a woman that can write in cursive forward & backwards and a master ear wiggler all while being serenaded by a young girl that plays a tuba. Impressive huh? Maybe not, but it made us laugh.
If you have a dumb talent that you’re proud of, shoot us an email.
We’d love to have you join the show!
And yeah, the video could be bigger than the homeless DJ!
How’s your new year going so far? Have you made any changes in your life?
What a week it’s been for Ted Williams of Columbus, OH. By now you’ve probably the heard story of the homeless DJ with a gift…an amazing voice. A friend uploaded a video of Ted to YouTube. Tuesday morning about 300 people had viewed the clip. As of last night the video had exploded to over 6 million views.
And the story doesn’t end there. After appearing on Columbus radio station WNCI yesterday morning, he’s been receiving offers from all around the country. MTV wanted to fly him out to LA to be a guest announcer. ESPN called followed by Inside Edition and the network news shows. The Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA came through with a full-time job and even offered to finance a home for him.
Ted admits to making mistakes in his life. He battled drug & alcohol problems but claims to be clean the past 2 years.
We all make mistakes but that doesn’t mean we don’t deserve a second chance.
Here’s to Ted, “the Susan Boyle of DJ’s” and anyone else who may have stumbled in life. Pick yourself up. Don’t give up. Opportunity could be as close as a YouTube video away!
“Believe and you’re halfway there.”
It's the end of the year, and everyone has their end of the year lists. I must say, 2010 was a memorable year. And you guys made it a lot of fun. Sue learned an important lesson this Summer...kickball is a full-contact sport! But she battled back from her freaky achilles injury and is back chasing sales people down our hallways.Â
We added a 3rd member to the show, Lissa, a renegade rock chick from Michigan that showed up at our front door this Summer. She seemed cool, and looked like she needed a hot meal, so we moved a 3rd chair into the KRZ studio. I now keep an industrial size bottle of Tylenol within arms reach at all times!Â
Intern Snuggy moved on and got a job with the Penguins while he finishes up his college degree. His spot was soon filled by Intern Kyle, another LCCC product. Kyle upped the geek factor on our show times 10. He hipped us all to XBox Kinnect and kept showing Sue & I hidden features on our IPhones. And Kyle also provided us with one of our favorite moments of the year!Â
Here's a quick look back @ some of my faves from 2010. And let's strive to make 2011 even more eventful. Thanks for being a part of the show!Â

Sue and I took my son to see TRON:Â Â LEGACY in 3D at the new Great Escape IMAX theatre in Dickson City.Â I can't tell if it looks like we should be driving in the left lane with our blinker on in Florida or auditioning for a new version of C.H.I.P.S.
The movie rocked, but let's face it, no one looks cool in 3D glasses.
Anyone for the slopes?
Now onto the movie...
You definately want to spend the extra $$$ and see the 3D-IMAX version of this flick.Â Just like Kevin & Sam Flynn, you too will be transported into the game.Â The 3D effects make you part of the action, and you're seats will rumble as the futuristic motorcyles race in front of you.Â In Philly or NYC it's at least $17 to see a film on an IMAX screen, so we're getting a break here in NEPA since it's "only" $12.Â
And thanks to CGI, we get to seeÂ Jeff Bridges play a younger version of himself.Â Â Pretty cool...teeth whitening without the bleaching!Â Â Â Be sure and look for a cameo by Daft Punk as the DJ's in the club scene.
Here's the closing credits.Â Â Â This pic would look really cool if you were just wearing a pair of uncool 3D glasses!
I tried transporting myself into the game, but my efforts came up a bit short!
Wow!Â What a response to our 3rd Annual BRAS ACROSS THE BRIDGE!!!Â Saturday turned out to be a beautiful Fall day, and you guys made it even more beautiful.
Our goal was to line the Market Street Bridge in Wilkes-Barre with a huge chain of bras.Â Each bra was a $5 donation to the American Cancer Society, and many represented Breast Cancer survivors.
Your donation this year helped to raise $3500 for Breast Cancer research.Â And even more than that, it was great to see the support for such a worthy cause.
And yes...we did it!Â This year's chain of bras stretched all the way across the bridge and spilled over into Kirby Park.
The most asked question of the day?Â What happens to my bra?Â If you donated a bra, good news.Â It will be a part of next year's chain.
We had such a huge response this year, what's next?Â Should we do the Market Street Bridge & back?Â Maybe we'll line the Pierce Street Bridge as well.Â Or, if we get enough bras, we can continue the chain down Market Street onto Public Square.Â The possibilities are endless.
