IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO IS SPENDING the week in Las Vegas, don't laugh too hard at them. A friend of mine is in Sin City for business this week and reports the temperature there on Tuesday afternoon was 27 degrees! I guess they're freezing their buns in Los Angeles too. If LA is freezing, I have to wonder if the Valley in California is even colder. We get olives, citris, nuts and other foods from that region of Cali. Can't be good for the farmers...or the price of those items.
I THINK ID RATHER BE THE CEO! A recent report indicated that the average McDonalds worker would have to work almost 4 months straight to earn what the Mickey D's big boss made last year in one hour. The previous CEO earned $9,247 per hour. Not bad work if you can get it!
IF YOU ARE A SINGLE PERSON LOOKING for love, get a dog. A recent Fox poll reports 66% of people in the USA made about five friendships thanks to their pets. How does this happen? Your walking Fido and run into other people doing the same. You stop, discuss one anothers dog and bingo...instant friendship. As a dog owner myself, trust me IT WORKS!
A NAME THAT HAS POPPED UP A FEW times on the show recently is the same name that is topping poll lists for frontrunner status in the next Republican presidential primary, most notably South Carolina. It's not Ted Cruz or Chris Christie or Rand Paul. Who is it? I'll tell you tomorrow morning on 640 WHLO.
I KNOW, IT'S COLD AS H@^$ RIGHT NOW, but it could be worse! A NASA satellite reports the temp in East Antarctica yesterday hit 135.8 degrees below zero, the coldest ever recorded on earth. Now the official record low (taken by a thermometer) is 128.6 degrees below zero. Oh well, thats fine. By the way I have no idea if this is C or F...but does it really matter?
YOU MAY RECALL, A FEW YEARS ago we had the so called "Craigslist Killers" here in Akron that led to a number of deaths and long prison terms for the perps. Now I see an Iraq war vet has been killed by a couple of brothers in Indiana who had advertised an I pad for sale on (drumroll) Craigslist! Friends report James Vester was an outstanding soldier and father. Friends have started a YouCaring.com fundraiser for the family. Interested in helping? I have the address...www.youcaring.com.
TALK TO YOU IN THE MORNING ON 640 WHLO. Jim
We know what cold is and how to deal with it. Out in LA...not so much!
