Kentucky Interstate Sign Warns Drivers of Zombies

With the exception of AMC's great series "The Walking Dead," most zombie entertainment is difficult to take seriously. Even the "classic" horror film "The Night of the Living Dead" is now hard to watch without laughing. By the

Fire Safety Week Reminds Me of Bizarre and Dangerous Rescue

My dad was the ultimate rubber-necker. You know how most people, due to simple human nature, will slow down or stop if they see a wreck or a fire? Dad would actually get out of the car to get a closer look--in some cases, a MUCH closer look. That was usually because he knew most of the police or fire department. Nonetheless, that was no excuse--in my opinion--for a stunt he pulled on U.S. 431 just south of Owensboro when I was a little kid.

Ladies, Check Out The New Meat-Scented Perfume!

I've always found the whole notion of PERFUME a little silly.  I've known some gals who will literally power-wash themselves with it in an effort to land a man!  But, think about this for a second!   Do men really seek out women who smell like lilacs, jasmine and honeysuckle?  I'm pretty sure most guys don't even have a clue what hyacinth is so why in the flip would you want to smell like it?  I mean, for real!  Are you trying to attract a burly, studly man or a hummingbird?  But, alas!!  There's a brand new fragrance on the market guaranteed to get your man's attention and have his mouth watering at first sight and sniff of you!   It's called QUE!

I’m Only Two Degrees Separated From Howie Mandel!

You've heard about the Six Degrees of Separation, right?  It's a theory that everyone on Earth is separated by just six degrees or less.  Basically it works like this.  As an example . . . we'll see how may degrees separate me from. . . let's say . . . Gwyneth Paltrow.  I, of course, know Jaclyn Graves.  Jaclyn knows Blake Shelton.  Blake Shelton is good buddies with Cee Lo Green!  And Cee Lo Green performed with Gwyneth Paltrow on The Grammys!   OMG!!  I'm just FOUR degrees separated from Gwyneth Paltrow!  (And just FIVE from Coldplay!)  Now, thanks to an old college friend of mine, I'm just TWO degrees separated from HOWIE MANDEL!

Waitress Discovers Ancestors’ Photo Hanging on Restaurant Wall

"If coincidences are just coincidences, why do they feel so contrived?" - Fox Mulder, "The X-Files"

I completely agree with the fictional federal agent. If something seems to be a coincidence, why does it feel like everything fell into place to make sure it happened precisely as it did? Coincidence? I think not. And when I learned the story of Sandra, a server at the Owensboro Cracker Barrel, I felt the exact same way.

Embalm Your Pennies, Oh the Places You Will Go

A few years ago, I checked on how much it would cost a family of four to spend a week at the Orlando Disney Megaplex. After putting my eyes back in my head and lifting my jaw off the floor (I beat the 5-second rule), I asked my mother how it was possible for the four of us--her, my dad, my sister, and me--to go to Disney World and spend a week when I was a kid. She told me that it was a combination of income tax returns and Dad's old embalming machine. Yes, you read that right.

Do You Know the Mullet Bandit?

In the movies bank heists always include cool masks. Like for instance, the Joker in "The Dark Knight", clown masked his comrades in crime. I've seen the presidential rubber masks and even those semi- transparent human face masks...those really creep me out. The thing is you usually don't use outdated hair dos to hide your true identity, that is of course, until the mullet bandit arrived.

I have a question. How many of you are on Facebook? Here's another one. How many of you breathe? Yep, if you're reading this now, you likely have a Facebook page. Heck, you probably got here via WBKR's Facebook page. Well, Mark Zuckerberg, the genius who invented this new part of our lives, has come up with another concept--although I'm not sure how or even if this will catch on.

Chad and Blake Shelton Have Something in Common

Moon here with my Chad story.  As the tornado sirens blared away last night I called Chad to see if he wanted to get together afterwards to survey the damage, if any. I told him I was safely in the basement and where was he? Outside!! Looking at the clouds and rain and thunder and lightning and possible tornado! So this morning I discover what he has  in common with Bla

Well we know with had a lot of rain but who knew it was this much?

Well we know with had a lot of rain but who knew it was this much! Some think the end of the world is scheduled to occur tomorrow, and officials in Kentucky have decided to embrace one of the Bible's great tales.

The Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority has given the go-ahead to issue $40 million in tax rebates in order to build a biblical theme park based on Noah's Ark, called The Ark Encounter.
