Drive-Home Blog

It's "What We Learned Friday" here at the Drive-Home, an aptly-named tradition wherein we review all the things we've learned on the show this week! 

You'd think that if you took two good things and combined them, you'd end up with an even better thing. It's a good theory, but it doesn't always work out that way. Case in point: KFC has apparently released a new sunscreen to keep you from getting fried, but there's a catch. It smells like fried chicken. Sunscreen is good. Fried chicken is good. But fried chicken sunscreen? Here's our thoughts on the subject.

So we covered a lot of ground this afternoon on the Drive Home! 

Starting off with a strange conglomeration of two of my favorite things - cats and coffee. Some folks in New York City found a creative way to connect cat lovers to homeless cats waiting to be adopted.

Celebrating Spring

Don't you love spring weather? The growing grass and flowers, the rain showers, and don't forget the lack of ice, sleet, and snow days!

One thing about spring that I don't love quite as much (though some do!) but that's definitely necessary is spring cleaning. 

Spring is also a great time to try some new things, like recipes! Kara picked up a couple new ones this past weekend she wanted to pass along.

It's Spring Break When...

Happy Spring Break!

You know, unless you're like most of us, who don't really get a break on Spring Break. Most people who work keep working, and some people (looking at you, moms!) do even more work during Spring Break. After all, those kids who aren't at school still have to go somewhere (home) and be supervised by someone (you).

Mac Powell Interview

Third Day, Brandon Heath, and Mandisa are going to be in concert tomorrow, Saturday, March 15th, at the BOK Center in Tulsa!

In advance of the show, Mac Powell, lead singer for Third Day, decided to drop by the Drive-Home and chat with Kara about the concert, how they have stayed inspired after 20 years as a band, and much more.

A couple of things from the show to share with you today! Some words that were especially encouraging to me today, and something just for fun (grown-ups lip-syncing Disney songs?)...

We hope you're enjoying the glorious temperatures on this Monday! Here's a quick recap of what we talked about on the show today...

An Inspiring Video

So, it's another snow day! And we've pretty much said all there is to say on that subject this winter, so we thought you might like to watch an inspiring video instead!

Misheard Lyrics

It's Friday! To be honest, on most Fridays Kara and I are more in the mood to watch silly YouTube videos and joke around than discuss anything serious.  But hey, we're sure many of you feel the same way by the end of a long work-week!

So today, we happened upon a funny idea from Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show: "Misheard Lyrics."  It's apparently blowing up on Twitter... basically just people sharing songs where the lyrics they thought they heard were much different from the actual song.  For example, one person said that as a child they were pretty sure the song at the beginning of "The Lion King" went, "PENNNNSLYVVANNNIIAAAA!"  (Hint: that's not what it says.)

Here's what we talked about on the show today! 

Mr. Rogers - America's Favorite Neighbor: Today marks 11 years since America's favorite neighbor, Mr. Rogers, passed away. Ansen and I both remember watching him on TV as kids. You may think of puppets, cardigans, and singing when you think of this simple man. But he also had some incredible wisdom. You can read all about his legacy in this great article...
