Zoo babies!!!!

Written by
The Cleveland Metroparks zoo is celebrating a birth! A Swamp Monkey was born in February - the first Swamp Monkey born at the zoo since 2009 :). If that wasn't enough cuteness, go across the Turnpike and the Toledo Zoo had twin Polar Bears born in December! They are the first born in Toledo since 2012. Once we have warmer weather sticking around, I may have to go visit and see the babies in person.…

Car show or RV show?

Written by
With the Car Show going on this week at the I-X Center, that got me thinking. I'm not a car guy. I could go to the car show and be entertained for a bit, but I would likely get through it pretty fast. The RV Show on the other hand...I can spend hours tour those things! Now I missed it this year (happened in January). However, I went several years ago with my dad and…

Happy Birthday season

Written by
We're getting into the time of year that has A LOT of birthdays (including mine). Saturday night, I along with Rachel Evans and weekender Tristan Sanchez attended a surprise birthday party for our co-worker and weekender Nick Hershey. It was held at The Rollhouse bowling alley in Solon. There were a ton of family and friends there! He was extremely surprised to see all of us there to celebrate his birthday. Then, we got to…

Is it Spring yet?

Written by
We almost hit 70 degrees on Thursday! That was awesome, it was gorgeous! I opened up my back porch and the front door and had just the screen open for Buttercup. I'm ready for the weather to be like that every single day, rather than this roller coaster we're on. Now, Spring does UNOFFICIALLY start this coming Wednesday (March 1st). I personally choose to go by this rather than the Equinox - I find it…

Time to plan vacation

Written by
So it's that time of year to plan my vacations for the year. I'm having a little difficulty deciding where to go. I'm not big on the beach or a cruise. Maybe use my mom's condo in Orlando this Fall? Haven't been there since 2014. It might be nice to stop in and say hi to the mouse and friends a day or two and take part in other activities around Central Florida. Plus, there…

You KNOW I'll be there

Written by
One of my favorite movie franchises is the Scream movies. I've seen all of them, love Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, & David Arquette in the movies as well. They're great movies for a good jump here and there (which I do ALL.THE.TIME. HAHAHA). Sadly Neve Campbell won't be back for this one, and I doubt David Arquette will, (spoiler alert here from #5) since he has been killed off. However, Courteney Cox is back which…

It's tax season!

Written by
It's everyone's favorite time of year! Some of us will owe more money, and some of us will get some back. What I find stressful is getting every document to my mom so she can hand them off to the person who does our taxes. Now my dad was a CPA and my mom worked as an accountant but the knowledge of numbers is NOT a strength I picked up...hence why I work in radio...LOL.…

We bowled two games - the first game I bowled a 172, and in the second game Cherise bowled a 174!!! I won't speak for Cherise,…

Happy Paczki Day

Written by
Thursday was Paczki Day! YUM!!! Of course, I had to do my part in celebrating. A box of Paczki were in the lounge at the station when I got to work Thursday night with only two left! They were both Custard filled, so I took one to do my part marking the day. It was SO GOOD!  I just love an excuse to take part in an occasion that has such wonderful food. I'm surprised…

My wheels finally got a bath!

Written by
Once I saw the weather forecast for Wednesday this week, I knew I wanted to get my car washed. I'm not exactly sure of when the last one was and I knew it could use one. I was out and about Wednesday afternoon and thought I'd at least drive by to see how bad the line was. I figured if it was horrendous, I'd get it washed on my way into work later in the…
