WHIRLWIND…that’s the word I’d use to describe the past ten days of my life. Things have not slowed down for a minute since arriving in Albany, NY last week for my new job doing mornings at B95.5. I’ve looking for apartments every single day, shopping for furniture for an apartment I don’t yet have, learning my way around town, meeting new people, making new friends, taking 40 listeners to a NY Yankees game…oh yeah, and working on a new morning show! But ya know what? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m hoping once things settle down that I’ll have a chance to blog every day…but for right now it looks like once, maybe twice, a week will be it for the short term. The show will officially launch next Monday…so I’m taking a breather this weekend and heading back to Maine to watch Nick play in an All-Star Little League tournament. Although it’s only been ten days, there are moments when it feels like ten weeks…especially when it comes to spending time with Jack and Nick. I also missed Charmen’s birthday yesterday…of course she most likely doesn’t want to celebrate that event anyway! But it did get me to thinking about the different milestones in our lives.
A SURVEY BY PFIZER…found the average age for different milestones in people’s lives. Supposedly you have your first kiss at age 15…you’re financially independent from your parents at 22…and have the best summer of your life at 24. Age 32 is when you start reminding yourself of your parents…38 is when you start feeling your age…and you should stop having kids when you turn 41.
BEING HONEST…what’s the one thing about your spouse or significant other than drives you nuts?
If you’re like most guys…you hate your woman’s argument techniques. Ladies you hate your man’s lack of cleanliness. Here are the top five lists for both…
What Men Hate About Women
1. Saying “I’m fine” when they’re clearly not.
2. Talking too much.
3. Constantly asking what men are thinking.
4. Winning fights by crying.
5. Never saying sorry, even when they’re wrong.
What Women Hate About Men.
1. Not listening properly.
2. Not putting the toilet seat down.
3. Leaving nail clippings and beard shavings wherever they fall.
4. Having friends they don’t like.
5. Hogging the TV remote.
IT’S SUMMER JOB SEASON…if you think you have a crappy job, don’t worry…someday you might be a rich, famous rock star. Because even those guys had to work “regular jobs” before they got their big breaks.
THANKS for the growing number of people signing up as members of the website…and on my Facebook page. I promise to start doing more with my Twitter page soon…but in the meantime go there and follow me. I love hearing from all of you and do my best to respond to all of the comments, posts, private messages and e-mails in a timely manner. So keep ‘em coming!
You guys have been so great to me over the years…and I can’t wait to launch The B95.5 Breakfast Club with Bill & Laura for you. Check my Facebook page on Monday for a link to the show’s new page, pictures, and more.
WHEW! Finally a minute to catch my breath. This has been a crazy whirlwind kind of week. As you probably know by now, I moved to Albany, NY on Sunday for my new job hosting mornings on B95.5. While I still can’t say too much, I can reveal the show will be called The Breakfast Club with Bill & Laura. And it looks like the launch date is Monday, June 25th. Beyond that…it’s still a work in progress. As soon as I can officially announce anything else you’ll be the first to know.
Lot’s of stuff has been going on.. besides work and looking for an apartment…so I thought I’d take a few minutes to post.
BAD NEWS IF YOU HAVE A BIRTHDAY COMING UP…it just might kill you! According to a new study of more than two million people by the University of Zurich in Switzerland, you’re more likely to die on your birthday…or within a few days of it…than any other day of the year.
And the chance goes up the older you get. By age 60, you’re 14% more likely to die on your birthday or a few days around it than any other day.
They believe that the stress that comes from your birthday is the big reason. A birthday makes you think about how old you are, that stresses you out, and it can actually increase your risk of a heart attack or stroke.
The study found that guys are also more likely to die on their birthdays from accidental deaths…and suicides. The researchers think that could be tied to men being more likely to drink heavily on their birthdays than women.
Well hey…it’s your birthday, and f you’re about to kick the bucket what’s to keep you from having one too many?
I’M SEXY AND I KNOW IT…well not me…but according to a new poll by Billboard Magazine, Britney Spears is Music’s Sexiest Woman…by a landslide. Here’s the Top 10…
1.Britney Spears: 45%
2.Lady Gaga: 12%
5.Katy Perry: 5%
6.Demi Lovato: 3.89%
8.Jennifer Lopez: 3%
9. Nicki Minaj: 1.89%
10.Taylor Swift: 1.84%
The voting was a lot closer for Music’s Sexiest Men…
1. Adam Lambert: 26%
2. Adam Levine: 12%
3.Justin Bieber: 10%
4.Enrique Iglesias: 9.75%
5.Bill Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel: 8%
6.Bruno Mars: 5.9%
7.Jon Bon Jovi: 5.8%
8.Chris Brown: 5%
9. Usher: 3%
SHE MAY NOT BE AS SEXY…but the 55,000 people who attended MADONNA’S gig in Istanbul, Turkey last week got a very special treat: A clear view of one of her 53-year-old NIPPLES.
Hey look…she’s older now, but in my opinion, Madonna is still very hot. I know the haters will criticize her for any number of things…but had I been at that concert, I would have been screaming for more! Just sayin’.
PEOPLE ARE SECRETLY JUDGING YOU…by the shoes you wear. Here’s the scary part…they’re judging you ACCURATELY. A new study out of the University of Kansas found that people could guess someone’s age, gender, income, political beliefs, and major personality traits with 90%accuracy just by looking at their shoes.
People tended to correctly associate expensive shoes with wealthier people… flashy and colorful shoes with extroverts and younger people…and shoes that looked old but taken care of with responsible people.
Some less obvious connections: people with practical shoes tended to be more agreeable…people wearing boots were more aggressive…and people in shoes that looked uncomfortable were generally calmer.
WELL, IT’S BEEN A LONG DAY…so I think I’m going to kick my shoes off and take it easy for the rest of the night. Keep checking my Facebook page and/or Twitter feed for more updates about the new show and what’s going on as I adjust to life in Albany, NY.
I also promise to keep posting SFTFH at least three times a week with topical, fun stuff. Thanks for the love and support.
FINALLY, SOMEONE TOLD KIDS THE TRUTH…and of course now he’ll have to live with the consequences! A few days ago, an English teacher spoke at his high school’s graduation in Boston. His message to the graduates was… YOU’RE NOT SPECIAL and even if your parents have told you that every day…no one’s going to hand you anything in the world. So if you want anything from this point on, you have to earn it.
Here are a few of his best quotes. Amen to all of them…
“Yes you’ve been pampered, cosseted, doted upon, helmeted, bubble-wrapped. You’ve been feted and fawned over and called sweetie pie. We’ve been to your games, your plays, your recitals, your science fairs.”
“Smiles ignite when you walk into a room and hundreds gasp with delight at your every tweet. And now you’ve conquered high school…here we all have gathered for you. But do not get the idea you’re anything special. Because you’re not.”
“Across the country no fewer than 3.2 million seniors are graduating about now from 37,000 high schools. That’s 37,000 valedictorians, 37,000 class presidents, 340,000 swaggering jocks, 2,185,967 pairs of Uggs.”
“But why limit ourselves to high school? Even if you’re one in a million, on a planet of 6.8 billion, that means there are nearly 7,000 people just like you.”
“You see, if everyone is special, then no one is. If everyone gets a trophy, trophies become meaningless. We Americans have of late come to love accolades more than genuine achievement. We have come to see them as the point.”
“No longer is it how you play the game, or even whether you win or lose, or learn or grow, or enjoy yourself doing it. Now it’s ‘So what does this get me?’
“As you commence, I urge you to do whatever you do for no reason other than you love it and believe in its importance. The fulfilling life, the distinctive life, the relevant life, is an achievement, not something that will fall into your lap because you’re a nice person or mommy ordered it from the caterer.”
“Exercise free will and creative, independent thought not for the satisfactions they will bring you, but for the good they will do others…and those who will follow them. Then you too will discover the great and curious truth of the human experience is that selflessness is the best thing you can do for yourself. The sweetest joys of life, then, come only with the recognition that you’re not special. Because everyone is.”
That teacher may be my new hero. However, I’m fairly certain that some namby-pampy helicopter mom or dad will take issue with him and try to drag him through the mud before this story is complete.
In my case, after reading about his speech it reminded me of the Baz Luhrmann song, Everyone’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen).
I’M NOT WHAT YOU WOULD CALL A NASCAR FAN…or even a racing fan. But I am a fan of funny and/or cool names…and these are some of the best ever. The fact that they just happen to belong to race car drivers makes it even better.
The website Jalopnik.com asked its readers for the 10 Most Ridiculous Race Car Driver Names…and this is what they came up with. Oh yeah, just in case you were wondering…these are all 100% real names of real drivers.
AT ONE POINT IN TIME…everyone loved Mr. Rogers. That’s why this is the coolest video of the day…bar NONE.
TWO MOVIES OPEN TODAY. If you have young kids, get ready to shell out the bucks on movie tickets, the related toys, and the Happy Meals forMadagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted.
Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, and Melman the Giraffe are still fighting to get home to their beloved Big Apple and of course, King Julien, Maurice and the Penguins are all along for the comedic adventure.
To be perfectly honest…I love this brand! My family actually own the first two on DVD. C’mon…you’re telling me those penguins don’t crack you up? And that King Julien? Hilarious.
Premethius. A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
JOB STATUS UPDATE: Great news! We’ve finally worked out all of the details on my new job at B95.5/Albany, NY. We’ll take all of next week to build, plan, and prepare…and if all goes as planned, the new morning show will launch on on Monday, June 18th at 5:30.
I couldn’t be more excited about this next chapter in my career and life. Thanks to all of you for your continued support. I hope you will all listen either in Albany or online.
Look for more updates and more info about the new show on my Facebook page. If you’re on Twitter you can find me there too. Have a great weekend.
YOUR JOB MIGHT BE MAKING YOU FAT. A CareerBuilder survey found that two out of five people say they’ve gained weight at their current job. And one in four have gained more than 10 pounds. Here are the jobs most likely to cause you to pack on the pounds:
1. Travel Agent: It’s a sedentary job, which contributes to weight gain. My question is…who uses a travel agent? Doesn’t everyone just use Travelocity?
2. Attorney or Judge: High stress level jobs also lead to weight gain.
3. Social Worker
6. Administrative Assistant
7. Physician: Aren’t these the people telling us to lose weight?
8. Protective Services, like police officers or firefighters: One word… donuts!
9. Marketing and Public Relations
10. Information Technology Professional
More than half of of the people surveyed said they’ve gained weight because they sit at their desk most of the day, and 56% said they eat their lunch there as well. But it may also have something to do with what they’re eating…
When asked how often they eat out at work for lunch instead of bringing their meal from home, 53% said they do so at least once a week, 23% at least three times a week and 11% at least five times a week. And 10% just eat lunch out of the vending machine at least once a week.
So how do you keep from having to buy new pants every six months?
Take more steps throughout the day: Take the stairs instead of the elevator or stop by a coworker’s desk instead of sending an email.
Snack healthy: Snacking can seem innocent when done in small bits and pieces, but the extra calories will start to add up quickly. Keep plenty of veggies and fruits in the office fridge so you have a healthier choice on hand.
Pack your lunch: This way you control your portions and also save money.
Drink water: Ditch the caffeinated drinks and juices. Water helps make you feel fuller faster, and cuts down on the calories.
WHILE SOME JOBS MAKE YOU FAT…others make you think about having lots of life insurance. The Bureau of Labor just put out this list of the 10 Most Dangerous Jobs In The U.S. and how much they earn for putting their lives on the line.
1. Fisherman: 116 deaths per 100,000. Average salary: $25,590.

3. Pilots: 70.6 deaths per 100,000. Average salary: $76,050 for
commercial pilots, $118,070 for airline pilots.
4. Farmers and ranchers: 41.4 deaths per 100,000. Average salary: $60,750.
5. Roofers: 32.4 deaths per 100,000. Average salary: $34,220.

HERE’S A JOB where you get free food…if you’re sneaky enough!
WHAT MAKES YOU THE HAPPIEST? According to a new survey, these were the five things that make people of all ages the happiest…
1. Kissing or hugging someone you love
2. Watching your children, grandchildren, or a close relative succeed
3. Being told you’re someone who can be trusted or relied on
4. Spending time with your family or friends at a meal or social gathering
5. Experiencing a special moment with a child
Of the 38 activities in the survey…here are the five that do the WORST job at making us happy…
1. Playing board games, cards, or video games
2. Connecting with friends or family on Facebook
3. Watching or participating in a sport
4. Completing a puzzle
5. Winning an award or a competition
Overall…68% of people say they’re happy. 49% say they’re somewhat happy, and 19% say they’re very happy.
IT’S NOT MORBID TO THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN FUNERAL. I mean, I don’t sit around dwelling on it or anything…but everyone occasionally thinks about it. After all, don’t you kinda want to know how it would go down?
A new poll asked people what they’d be MOST curious about if they could watch their own funerals. Here’s the breakdown . . .
51% of us say we’re most curious about what people will say about us in their eulogies. 19% are worried about how many people will actually show up…and are most curious to know how many people will be there. 11% want to see if any surprise visitors will show up. And 7% are most curious about how they’ll look in the casket.
Personally, I want my funeral to be a celebration of my life. After all…the first three letters of funeral spell FUN! I plan on being cremated so I’m not too worried about how I’ll look…and I’ll save money on a nice suit and casket…so there should be lots of money left over to throw one great party! I just want to make sure they play cool music…and none of that organ music that makes people cry.
And if you’re reading this…consider yourself invited…and I EXPECT you to show up…or else you may get an unexpected visit from me as I journey back from the other side!
THIS IS JUST WRONG. A guy turned his dead cat into a helicopter. I guess the good news is that when he lands it…it’ll always land on its feet.
HATE IS A STRONG WORD. I can’t really think of anyone that I really hate…oh there are a few that I loath and despise…but hate? Not so much. However, that doesn’t stop the rest of the country from sipping on a tall cool glass of Hater-Ade!
According to a poll of more than 9,000 New York Postreaders, these are the Top 10 Hated People in The United States…
ONE THING AMERICANS DON’T HATE…is fastfood. And in particular Taco Bell. Back in March, Taco Bell released its Doritos Locos Tacos nationwide. If you somehow missed it, those are Taco Bell tacos with a hard shell made out of Doritos.
They say that it’s their most successful product ever…and it just might be the MOST SUCCESSFUL FAST FOOD ITEM OF ALL TIME.
In the first 10 weeks, Taco Bell has sold more than 100 million Doritos Locos Tacos. In comparison, it took McDonald’s 18 years to sell its first 100 million hamburgers…although there were a lot less restaurant locations and customers back then.
Now that the Doritos Locos Tacos are so successful, Taco Bell is planning to expand and try other Doritos-flavored shells. The current ones are nacho cheese …Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos will most likely be next in line.
I LOVE TUESDAY…because that’s the day all of the movies I didn’t go see at the theater actually get released on DVD. This week I’m doubly happy because a movie I did go see is out on DVD…so I can watch it again.
One of the best movies I’ve seen this year has to be Safe House. Oscar winner Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds star. Denzel plays the most dangerous renegade from the CIA, who comes back onto the grid after a decade on the run. When the South African safe house he’s remanded to is attacked by mercenaries, a rookie operative (Reynolds) escapes with him. Now, the unlikely allies must stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead.
I think Denzel is at his best as a bad guy. And while this isn’t Training Day…Denzel is still a little on the edge in Safe House. Bottom line is…if you like Denzel and/or action movies…this is a must see! I can’t wait to see this again.
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. This is the follow-up to the 2008 hit Journey to the Center of the Earth. This one begins when young Sean Anderson receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. It’s a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret.
Unable to stop him from going, Sean’s new stepfather joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter, they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.
John Carter. Based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter, who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet.
Act Of Valor. This movie got a lot of hype when it was released a few months ago in theaters. An unprecedented blend of real-life heroism and original filmmaking…it stars a group of active-duty U.S. Navy SEALs in a fictionalized account of real life Navy SEAL operations.
When a mission to recover a kidnapped CIA operative unexpectedly results in the discovery of an imminent, terrifying global threat, an elite team of highly trained Navy SEALs must immediately embark on a heart-stopping secret operation, the outcome of which will determine the fate of us all.
Combining stunning combat sequences, up-to-the-minute battlefield technology, and heart-pumping emotion…it’s the ultimate action adventure film-showcasing the skills, training and tenacity of real-life action heroes…real Navy SEALs.
I LOVE HEARING FROM YOU…so hit me up on my Facebook and/or Twitter page. And look for more updates on my new job there too.
LOOKING FOR MORE REASONS YOU GOT DUMPED? Last week, a survey came out with the top reasons people get dumped. If you remember, stuff like fighting too much, not being ready for a relationship, and being too high maintenance all made the list.
Well, the website that did the survey just released more data digging even deeper into breakups. Here are five of the interesting facts they found…
1. People are most likely to break up after one month because one person drinks too much. At six months, the top breakup reason is the old “I’m not ready for a relationship” excuse. And after six months, the top breakup reason is too much fighting.
2. Of those who broke up over sexual reasons…the other person’s low sex drive was the reason 19.3% of the time. A high sex drive was the reason 10.3% of the time.
3. People are more likely to get dumped for being too tall than too short. Of the people who ended things for a physical reason, 19.4% said the person was too tall, 8.3% said the person was too short.
4. The physical feature that drives the most breakups…being overweight. 22% of people who’ve ended things said it was the other person’s weight.
5. Gambling is the most destructive of the four biggest bad habits. 27.3% blamed gambling, 15.2% blamed drugs, 15.2% blamed drinking, and 6.1% blamed smoking.
SURVEY SAYS…another Hollywood legend passed away over the weekend. I grew up watchingFamily Feud…starring the very hip, very cool, very suave Richard Dawson. Sadly, he died Saturday at age 79 from complications related to esophageal cancer at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
As host of the greatest game showever, Family Feud, Dawson is said to have kissed in the neighborhood of 20,000 women! He won a daytime Emmy Award in 1978 as best game show host. The show was so popular it was released as both daytime and syndicated evening versions.
There have been several hosts since Richard Dawson left the show…but none have had the success…or the swag…as the original. In my opinion Richard Dawson ranks among the Top # Game Show Hosts of all-time.
Long before life as a game show host…he had gained fame as the fast-talking Cpl. Peter Newkirk on Hogan’s Heroes, the CBS comedy starring Bob Crane set in World War II. The show ran from 1965 until 1971.
I remember coming home after school and watching re-runs of it every afternoon. As crazy as it sounds…they made being in a WWII POW camp seem fun.
R.I.P. Richard Dawson.
I MAY NEVER GO OUT IN THE SUN AGAIN! Here’s the photo making its way around the internet of a 69-year-old former delivery truck driver. Two dermatologists at Northwestern University just published a report on the man as part of their study on just how damaging the sun can be to the skin. Their verdict is…it might even be more damaging than we believe.
The right side of his face looks like any person in their late 60s. But the left side spent several hours a day in the sun while he drove his truck…and looks like the face of someone who’s at least 100 years old. Bring on the SPF 65,000!
THANK YOU for all of the congratulations, well-wishes, and positive vibes all of you have sent me. I was shocked at how many responses I received to Facebook post last week…and how many of you sent private messages, texts, and e-mails.
There have been a couple of minor last minute details that have popped up that need to get ironed out…so until they do, my start date has been pushed back a short while. Please keep checking my Facebook page or Twitter page for updates. That’s where you’ll here the news first.
Again…thanks for your love and support. I can’t wait to get back on the air and talk with you each morning.
DON’T FEEL LIKE EXERCISING TODAY…
or ever? Then use this new excuse: exercise might be BAD FOR YOU.
A new study by Louisiana State University contradicts every other study or piece of common sense. They found that for about 10% of people, exercise was actually unhealthy.
Those people saw negative effects on either blood pressure, insulin levels, or bad cholesterol after working out. About 7% of people actually got worse on two of those. All of those can increase the risk of heart disease and strokes.
They aren’t exactly sure how that’s possible…and they’re worried it could actually become an excuse for people to avoid exercising. So before you decide you’re one of the 10% who shouldn’t exercise, you might want to wait for another study that backs this one up. Because, ya know, every other study ever…doesn’t.
TAKE IT FROM ME…everyone loves a compliment, especially a guy. So the editors at Match.com talked to relationship experts to get some advice on how you should…and maybe more importantly…how you shouldn’t compliment us. Here are the top four tips they came up with:
1. Don’t Say You Like Our Shirt…Tell Us We Look Good in It. There’s a slight difference, but it’s an important one: If just you say it’s a nice shirt, you’re complimenting our fashion sense…and honestly, the overwhelming majority of us don’t care much about that. We just usually buy what’s on sale at Target…and a lot of times you actually bought it for us. But if you tell us we LOOK GOOD in it, you’re complimenting our looks, not the shirt.
2.Compliment Our Friends. First, figure out what WE like about them. Then try to echo it. For example, if we think the dude is hilarious…and you do too…then let us know. If we know YOU think our friends are cool, we’ll feel cool too. And as crazy or immature as it sounds…just don’t go overboard with it because then we might get jealous.
3. If We’re Chivalrous and Open The Door for You, Make a Big Deal About It. Sadly, chivalry isn’t engrained in men the way it used to be. And most guys have to actively think about doing things like opening doors and pushing in chairs. So if you thank a guy for it and mention how most guys never do stuff like that, it gives us a mini ego boost.
4. Don’t Talk About How Great Our Job Is…Tell Us We’re Really Good at It. Guys like to hear how good they are at things, especially their job…even if they hate their job. But if you just started dating and tell us our job is great, we’ll probably assume you mean it must pay well. Then we start wondering if you’re just after our money…even if we don’t make much.
Does it sound like a lot of ego stroking? Maybe. But think about it…everyone likes being complimented. And if it leads to a great relationship, what’s the problem? Is it really that big of a deal? The key is don’t go overboard because most of us will see through it eventually and think you’re just playing us. So be sincere…and enjoy the rewards.
A FEW NEW MOVIES OPEN TODAY…but nothing as big as the past two or three weeks.
Snow White And The Huntsman.Kristen Stewart plays the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen (Oscar winner Charlize Theron) who is out to destroy her. But what the wicked ruler never imagined is that the one girl threatening her reign has been training in the art of war with a huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) who was dispatched to kill her. Sam Claflin stars as the the prince long enchanted by Snow White’s beauty and power.
Battlefield America. If you have kids…this is probably what they’ll want to go see. This is a young Hip-Hop dance battle movie for a new generation of dancers. It takes a steady look at the underbelly of the youth battle dance culture in Long Beach, CA.
I’m a sucker for movies based on real life. So this is my personal pick for best movie of the weekend.
FINALLY…that’s a good word to describe the end of today’s blog AND my long 12 month job search! If you missed the announcement yesterday on my Facebook page…I’ve finally found the job I’ve been searching for.
I’m going to be the new Morning Host at B95.5 in Albany, NY. I’ll be teaming up with market veteran, Laura Daniels for what promises to be a very real, very fun morning show. Musically…if you like John Mayer, Maroon 5, Adele, and classics from Goo Goo Dolls, Smash Mouth and Train…then you’ll love B95.5.
I’ll be taking next week to meet with our entire team to create a very fun, fast paced, real-life, topical morning show that I’m sure you’ll really want to listen to each morning. And YES…we stream. Just click on the hyperlink I provided in the last paragraph and you’ll be taken right to the website.
Of course I’ll do my very best to keep you updated on how things are going as we lead up to the launch of the very first show. Check back here and on my Facebook page or Twitter page to find out how things are going.
I can’t say THANK YOUbig enough or loud enough to all of you that have stood by me over the last year. Your love and words of encouragement have meant more to me than I can ever express. Every morning radio guy should be so lucky to have the quality of…not just listeners, but friends…as I do.
From the bottom of my heart…THANK YOU for caring and keeping me top of mind. I promise to create a great show that you’ll be happy to listen to AND tell your friends to listen to.
Have a great weekend. Hard to believe…but the next update will be from Albany!
GETTING DUMPED SUCKS. Sometimes you don’t even know why you got kicked to the curb. Well now there’s a website called WotWentWrong…it’s for people who want advice on unsuccessful relationships, and they came up with the top ten reasons men and women get dumped.
When women get dumped, the top ten reasons are:
1. The guy isn’t ready for a relationship.
2. She has bad hygiene.
3. The guy doesn’t feel like he’s a priority.
4. They fight too much.
5. He thinks her sex drive is too low.
6. She’s always late.
7. He met someone else.
8. She’s a bad kisser.
9. The guy doesn’t see a future with her.
10. She’s too hairy.
OMG! Over the years, I’ve broken up with women for every single one of those reasons. I even dumped a girl in high school because she didn’t think Down By The River by Neil Young was a better song than Beat It by Michael Jackson! Granted I was only 17, going through my early Classic Rock phase and failed to see the genius of Michael…but certainly you must be able to see my reasoning. Sorry about that Cindy…you were a good girlfriend!
Here are the top reasons guys get dumped are:
1. She found someone else.
2. She thinks their eating habits are too different.
3. He’s too high-maintenance.
4. He’s too short.
5. He doesn’t make enough to support the lifestyle she wants.
6. He doesn’t make her feel attractive.
7. He’s always late.
8. She’s not attracted to him.

HE’S AN AMERICAN ICON…and in my opinion, a national treasure…CLINT EASTWOOD turns 82 today. Celebrate with 170 Clint Eastwood Quotes…but BE WARNED, the profanity is uncensored.
I’M NOT MUCH OF A SOCCER FAN. Oh sure I’ll go watch my boys play…but beyond that, I couldn’t care less. Well that all could change…if they would just let this guy go pro!
WANT TO SAVE MONEY? A survey by a coupon website found that one of the best ways to stretch your money is to BREAK THE LAW!
53% of us have done something illegal to save money. Here are the most-common illegal activities:
1. Switching labels: Of the people who admit to being shady to save money, 53% have replaced the label on an expensive item with a cheaper one.
2. Parking illegally: 41% of drivers have taken a chance on a parking ticket. OK…I’ll admit to this one!
3. Lying to friends: 32% of people have stuck friends with a bill by pretending not to have cash. Which isn’t illegal…but still pretty low.
4. Tricking the self-checkout scanners: Either by not ringing everything up, or lying about which item you’re weighing. I absolutely love the self-checkout aisle…but have never ever considered cheating it. However, 29% of people have.
5. Stealing: 8% of those surveyed had straight-up stolen something.
I can’t imagine doing something like this…no matter how tough things get. And over the last year, things have gotten pretty tough here at Casa Fox. I don’t even take the soap and shampoo at hotels…so I would never consider just straight up ripping someone off. All I can think is…you must really be desperate if you’re willing to steal. Kinda sad when you think about it.
ON THE SUBJECT OF THIEVES…police in South Dakota are looking for a guy who dresses up just like Robin Williamsin the movie Mrs. Doubtfire… then pickpockets people. They believe they know who he is, but no arrests have been made.
PAGING DR. SNOOKI! When you take your sweet young son in for surgery to fix his broken arm you don’t expect him to wake up and have turned into a pre-pubescent Jersey Shore bro…but that’s what happened. And it’s FUNNY!
