Best Movies NEVER!!!

On many occasions I've said that there are way better movie critics at this station than I! I have watched the movie about a killer tire on Netflix called Rubber.  Basically, I see weird movies I have to at least check out the trailer. Like the...

This is out of the…

Teacher's Day!

Written by
To all the Teacher's, you deserve the world building our youth... minds, body and spirit.  I loved school!  Basically, because I lived in the middle of nowhere and it was the only way that I got to see friends. My teachers were a trip looking back.  The Late Eileen Rensel was a stickler.  I had her in 7th and 10th Grade.  She taught English and before you could enter her room.  You had to look her…

Then as if those weren't big enough... These same boots get demoted to Yard Boots where…
