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 The thing is you usually don't use outdated hair dos to hide your true identity, that is of course, until the mullet bandit arrived.

Heck, you probably got here via WBKR's Facebook page.

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

A Thought for Your Pennies

Every Friday this calendar year I have been and will continue to be at Pogue Chrysler in Greenville or Pogue Chevrolet in Central City for a live road show. A few weeks ago, I noticed something hanging over the door of one of the sales offices at Pogue Chevy. It was a bag of water with three pennies in it. At first, I thought, "Practical joke--I'm gonna walk under it and somehow it's going to rupture and soak my head." Nope. As it turns out, the water bag is for something much smaller than me.

Music City Aka Cicada City

If you know someone in middle Tennessee, and I know several, then you've more than likely heard about the recent invasion of cicadas.  In case you need a refresher, here's a little background info. The good thing is, they don't bite or sting, well, they can sting if they mistake a human limb for a tree.  Mostly, they are known for being noisy and yes, they will attack trees.

Moon here. Any type of surgery can leave you dealing with some serious side effects, but 56-year-old Karen Butler has experienced something especially peculiar. Since her oral surgery a year and a half ago, the Oregon woman has spoken with a bizarre English-meets-Irish-meets-Russian accent.
