Good Morning!This morning I told Mark the story about how the twins wanted to "make it rain inside" last night.  I came home from having dinner with a friend to a major mess.  They had taken the pullout spray from the kitchen sink and tried to make it rain.  There was water everywhere!  Tom and I had to laugh about it or else we would have cried!  You know, it's days like yesterday that make me even more grateful and thankful for the good ones.  And in those moments of frustration and discouragement, I have to remember that God is in...

Good Morning!Mark and I had a hilarious morning!  Mark mentioned this morning that his daughter found a toad and wants to keep it as a pet.  Not knowing if you can even keep a toad as a pet and, if you can, how to take care of one we asked our listeners for advice and funny pet stories.  Then the phone lit up!  Our listeners have pet armadillos, rats, toads, alligators and goats, as well as funny stories about their horses, cats and dogs.  My favorite story was from the gentleman who told us about his daughter giving her pet horse a tour...

Hello!  Today is the 6th Anniversary of the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York City.  We spent time this morning reflecting on our memories of 9/11 and talking with listeners about their memories.  I visited Ground Zero in 2005 and will never forget the quiet and sadness that surrounded the area.  In a city of noise and busyness, Ground Zero is a somber and surreal place and if you're able to visit it, I'd suggest you do so. Dr. Joey joined us for Part 2 of his 3 Part Series "Save the Cake, Save the Marriage - 3 Sweet...

Good Morning!I'm late in posting and I apologize.  I've had a crazy morning.  My son, Ben,  didn't feel well this morning, the drive into the station was difficult due to the rain, and I've felt behind all morning as a result.  It's 9:45 am and it feels like it should be 9:45 pm - just one of those days, I guess.  We took calls this morning from listeners who shared with us how they treat themselves.  I like to read a magazine or a book, get a pedicure or manicure and go on a hunt for a great bargain.  Our callers told...

Good Morning!We wrapped up our conversation about self-gifting - or as a friend of mine kindly refers to it - sanity gifting.  Regardless of what side of the fence you are on, we realized that, to some degree, we all have coping methods for everyday chores and tasks.  (You should see Mark's car!  I fondly refer to it as E-Z Mart Central! HA!)  Thanks, again, for all of the wonderful calls of encouragement and to those of you who called in to disagree with us!  :) We talked with Rush of Fools this morning.  In case you missed the 2 segments, you...
