Finally!  Something is actually in bloom.  My family lives in the North east part of the country.  They had 18 inches of snow March 29-30.  They are NOT happy!!!!  I am looking at spring out the window and a week in the 70's!  Yippeeeeeeee!

After all these years of living in Middle Tennessee...you would think we would be used to crazy weather.  Not really! I can tell you that these 40-50 degree temperature swings always throw me.  You go to bed and it's 60 and you wake up and it's 25.  I'm kinda done with the cold for this year.  One good snow would be cool but it's no big deal.  Swing on up to 60 and stay there.  We're good with it!

The first couple of months in any new year feels like a chance to start fresh.  I get crazy with ideas!  I want to clean stuff out, reorganize, get back on track with projects, set new goals.  I may not accomplish everything that I set out to do...but it is the actual process of taking your life apart and putting it back together, looking at each piece and deciding what to do with it that brings the benefit.  Making any improvement at all is progress, right?  Please remind me of this in February!!!!

Richard Branson as a flight attendant!   You have to admit that this is a hysterical outfit...but he'll probably want to stick with the usual wardrobe.    :)http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/05/12/richard-branson-shaves-legs-spills-orange-juice-while-honoring-bet-to-be-flight/

Why does stuff break at the worst possible times??  It's the air conditioner that quits when it's 100 degrees...the heater that breaks when it's 10...(I've had both of those happen) ...or in my case this year...the lawnmower that quits when the grass is in nuclear growth mode.  I apologize in advance to the neighbors...it's going to be a jungle really fast.  I'm not even going to ask what's next...that never turns out the way you want it too!  :)

I grew up in the northeast.  We spent our whole winter skiing and skating.  If you weren't out doing something ....you would go stark raving mad being cooped up in the house all winter long.  What happened?  I wimped out!  The other day I was complaining about the cold temperatures when my Mom reminded me it had been below zero up there.  Oh yeah...30 degrees isn't so bad.  However, you will still hear me complaning until spring gets here.  I am ready the minute Christmas is over.  Fast forward to tulips please!

I love it when we get calls and emails from listeners telling us how much they love Mix 92.9.  That makes my day!  As the Program Director, often times people ask me, "How do you guys pick the music?" Well...we don't!  Actually....you do!  Every year we survey hundreds of people in Middle Tennessee about thousands of songs and the ones you rate the best are the ones that get played!   Because your opinion is so important to us, you'll be able to do that online this year too.  We'll keep asking and you keep telling us.  That's what makes

I have a new appreciation for everything!  After what seemed like a regular cold...the last 4 weeks went from bronchitis and laryngitis into walking pneumonia.  It has not been fun.  I can tell you I have never experienced anything like this before and the cough was side splitting.  Thanks to all the poeple I love so much for their understanding.  I know there is a lot of stuff going around this year.  Be careful, do all the things you know you are supposed to do...wash hands, get rest, eat well.  My doctor's office was wonderful and they

Yes, it's almost over but what fun we have had!  I love the Olympics for way more reasons than athletics.  It has brought our family together to cheer...even when we already knew the outcome because we'd seen it online.  It brought us together to share in the stories...stories of parents who sacrificed, kids who gave up everything, countries that we never even thought of for years  We looked to the athletes of all different shapes and sizes to show us the best of the best.  I will miss the dinner time conversations, the online replays...and most of all that we

One of my neighbors was out mowing their yard the other day and the smell of freshly cut grass came wafting through the neighborhood.  It was glorious!!  There isn't much to mow yet in my yard, but I actually thought about getting out the mower just so I could smell that spring like scent again.  Don't get me wrong, this was my favorite winter in a long time.  If they were all like this, I'd be good with that.  I grew up in the snow country of western New York state where we had 120" of snow every year.  I love Nashville.  That little dusting we had was pe

The holidays may be over but thank you for all the amazing comments about our Christmas music this year.  We had calls, emails, posts on our Facebook page and so many wonderful people took time to tell us how much they appreciated it.  I guess what makes it so special is how it warms our lives and gives us a connection to the past.  Thank you too for your hearty welcome as we returned to regular programming.  We're still the same Mix you know and love!  :)

"You'll turn around and it will be summer....then you'll turn around again and it will be Christmas..."  Words my mother used to say to me and I'd nod and think...it's not that bad is it?  Yep it is!  This might have been the fastest summer ever and my daughter just went back to school...  :(  I miss summer already...no homework...light that lasts until 8:30....the only thinkg I won't miss is the heat!

This whole Cicada thing has not bothered me a bit...until this week!  What the heck?  They are swarming in mass numbers.  I drive I-65 every day and it's like a debris field.  My windshield is trashed with dead bugs on the way home.  Yesterday, one found its way into my car and as I was speeding down the interstate at 70+ mph....I looked down at my arm and there were two red eyes staring back at me.  I'm trying not to freak out on the interstate.    Good feeling gone....

I may be sneezing, but it's worth the trade.  Easter Eggs, the smell of fresh cut grass, blooming flowers and the wind down to another school year.  I love Spring!

Love it when you can buy something and get something for free!  It's Clinique Bonus time at Dillards and the gift is awesome.  We'll have some to give away but if you can't wait, it's a $60.00 value with the purchase of $21.50 or more.  Worth it!

Valorie Kadowaki got the trivia right! (Yes, she spells her name with an "o" in Val instead of an "e" :)    She knew you had a 24% less likely chance of getting divorced if you waited until you were 25 or older to get married. Nice job Val.  Enjoy the 8 Adventure Science Center passes with your family!

The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas literally flew...then New Years came and went........and here we are in January!!  When I was taking the decorations off the Christmas tree, I looked at each ornament and thought...we are never promised anything.  Not another year..not another day. We have to slow down and capture that loving, giving spirit we feel at Christmas and pull it forward with us into 2011.   I'll try to remember that as this year flies by!  It's already off and running....!

We're on the run for the next 4 weeks.  Parties, fundraisers, cookie bakes, presents to buy and ship, holiday decorations to do, school performances, gifts for teachers etc,  busy work schedules...this will be me! 

If I start running too fast, please tap me on the shoulder and remind me that this is the season of love, joy, peace and hope....and those things matter more than anything else! :)

Every time the weather turns cool...we start in on the chili.  I fired up the breadmaker last night and made a big loaf of warm wheat bread and a huge pot of turkey chili.  I tend to add a few more different kinds of beans ...but this recipe is a good starter.  Great comfort food is one of the good things about fall!

We went trick- or- treating with some friends who live in Westhaven.  These people know how to do Halloween!!!!  Lots of cool decorations and tons of candy.  The kids have a blast and everyone ends up with bags full of treats.   I'm not sure how much candy the residents buy...but it's a lot.  We'll be eating snickers bars til next year so if you need a chocolate fix...you know who to call! :)
