Final update at       PDT

We begin with the top four headline stories...

RICHEST GOING AWAY IN HISTORY..HARRY POTTER SELLS 8.3 MILLION IN 24 HOURS
J.K Rowlings seventh and final volume of the fantasy series, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" set a new record for selling 8.3 million copies in its first 24 hours in the U.S. alone.....it averaged 300,000 copies in sales per hour... in its first day of release.  The official price was $34.99, although it generally sold for half that price.  "The excitement, anticipation, and just plain hysteria that came over the entire country this weekend was a bit like the Beatles' first visit to the U.S.," Scholastic president Lisa Holton said in a statement Sunday. Scholastic pulled off a distribution masterpiece, as the book was not only available in book stores but just about everywhere you looked..from 7-11's to gas stations.  Border's said they sold 1.2 million copies in the first 24 hours...also an all time record for that book chain.

26 POLISH PILGRIMS DIE IN BUS CRASH IN FRENCH ALPS
A bus carrying Polish pilgrims from a holy site in the Alps missed a
curve and plunged 65 feet onto the banks of the La Romanche River near
Notre-Dame-de-Mesage, France yesterday.  The bus burst into flames
killing 26 people and injured an estimated 15 people. A similar
accident in 1970 prompted a law that requires a permit to travel the
7% grade five mile stretch of the road, but the bus that crashed
yesterday reportedly had no such permit.

IRAQ-U.S. WILL HOLD SECOND ROUND OF TALKS ON TUESDAY
Iran has accepted an invitation to sit down in Baghdad to talk about Iraq
and how to bring peace there.  The first, very low level discussion between
the two was at least amiable, which prompted the level of diplomats to
go up to the ambassadorial level.  At least part of the meeting will be
to warn Iran against continuing its support for militants.  Iran, which,
like Iraq has a majority Shiite Muslim population has denied any military
involvement in Iraq.  But, the U.S. still holds five Iranians who they
say were bringing in military equipment, supplies and fighters to aid
the insurgents.  Meanwhile, Iran continues its nuclear program and the
U.S. is still running a huge naval exercise just outside Iran.

TALIBAN HOLDS 23 SOUTH KOREANS HOSTAGE IN AFGHANISTAN.. DEADLINE EXTENDED
Eight South Korean officials arrived in Kabul yesterday to work on new
negotiations with the Taliban to free 23 hostages.  The Taliban extended
their demanded deadline until Monday morning to turn over 23 Taliban
prisoners in exchange for the South Koreans.  U.S. and other international
forces had surrounded the Qarabagh district in Ghanzi where the South
Korean civilians were being held. The militants kidnapped the Koreans
while they were riding on a bus from Kabul to the southern city of Kandahar, where they live and work, some at medical facilities.

SPORTS..After leading the British Open for three straight days, and entering the fnal day with a three stroke lead, Spaniard Sergio Garcia fell into a string of bogies and opened the door for Irishman Padraig Harrington.  Garcia still had opportunity after opportunity to put Harrigton away but just could not make a putt.  On the 17th hole, Harrigton fell apart, putting two shots into the water and giving Garcia the lead back after grabbing it from him by one stroke.  All Garcia had to do on 18 was to putt a four footer and his major was in the bag.  Instead, he missed the putt, sending the Open into a four hole playoff.  Harrigton took an early 2 shot lead but stumbled on the fourth hole giving Garcia another chance to send the match into sudden death.  Instead, Garcia missed a makeable putt and Harrigton became the first Irishman in 60 years to win The Open.

Here's a sound clip after the match..Harrington first..then Garcia

AND EVEN MORE

DEAF WOMAN SLEEPS THROUGH POLICE RAID
Responding to a report of a gunman inside a home, police circled the Hayle,
Cornwall house for five hours.  Then, giving warning for the last time, stormed
the house. A police dog rushed upstairs and, finding a woman in bed, proceeded
to sink its teeth into her arms. But as armed officers surrounded a terrified
Sonia Pellow, they realised two things. First, she wasn't a gunman. Second, she
was deaf and had been sleeping throughout the entire stand-off.  Even though the
call was a hoax, Pellow, 36, was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully possessing
a firearm but was released without charge. A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall
Police said the matter would be investigated if she made a complaint.

NASAL SPRAY TO GET OVER SHYNESS
University of Zurich researchers say they have created a spray that can relieve
people of shyness and help them socialise with others. They say the spray can
boost self-confidence just by squirting it up the nose. The researchers say that
the spray harnesses the powers of a feel-good hormone called oxytocin, a
neurotransmitter in the brain that is involved in social recognition and
bonding. The hormone is produced naturally by the body when a person is in love,
and it also induces labor in pregnant women and affects the part of the brain
that controls fear. University researcher Dr. Markus Heinrich presented the
findnigs at the World Congress of Neuroscience in Melbourne. The researchers are
now planning to conduct large-scale trials of the spray. If the trials prove
successful, the spray may be launched in the market in the next five years.

MAN CATCHES HEAD OF FRIEND IN FISHING NET
A commercial fisherman caught a disturbing item in one of his nets.  Barry
Hunter, 58, discovered a skull in his catch and it wasn't just any skull, but
according to DNA tests, the skull of his friend and fellow fisherman, Brian
Allison, who had disappeared three years ago when his boat sunk in the North
Sea. "It was a very eerie feeling to be standing there on your boat with a skull
in your hand. "And then you find it's one of your mates who went missing all
that time ago. "When I first saw it, the thought did cross my mind for a split
second that it could be Brian or Rob. It's unbelievable."

FEEL GOOD DOG STORY
Zoey, the Chihuahua, certainly is a hero in the West family.  One year old,
Booker West was splashing in a birdbath at his grandparents house in northern
Colorado when a rattlesnake slithered up to the baby and flew forward to bite
the child. Five-pound Zoey jumped in the way and took the bites. "She got in
between Booker and the snake, and that's when I heard her yipe," said Monty
Long, the boy's grandfather. The dog required treatment and for a time it
appeared she might not survive, but she did. "These little bitty dogs, just
don't really get credit, they deserve" he said.

Highway Patrol for a new reality TV show. And it took him three attempts to pass

jobs.

Did you ever wonder how bikers who are racing in the Tour de France go to the
bathroom during long stretches of the race?  They just keep pedaling, whip it
out and let it loose while they are racing. TV cameras are supposed to turn away
in respect of their privacy. Unfortunately, one Tour de France rider's nature
break was broadcast on live television around the world, including the Versus
network in the U.S.  So that's how we knew.

Page Six says Erin Moran, who played Joanie Cunningham on "Happy Days," would be
more famous today if it weren't for her mother. The actress told retrocrush.com
she was up for the lead in "The Exorcist," but said her mom wasn't going to let
her play the part whether she got the role or not because they were very strict
Catholics.  The part went to Linda Blair.

TV LAST NIGHT

(We watched TV for you last night)

BIG BROTHER 8
Day 20
Dick is Head of Household.  One of his first statements were: "There's
gonna be blood splattered."
The guys feel that it's better to have someone who will stab you in the back in
front of your face rather than from behind.
Zach believes his alliance with Kail is done.  Kail talks to Mike and asks him
why he didn't tell her he was changing his vote.  He said he just decided to go
along with what the osue was voting.  She asks him the state of their alliance. 
Dick's room is red and black and full of photos of him as a young guy with a
very young Danielle.   Kail goes to Dick to explain why she flipped her vote on
him.  She explains about her alliance.  He tells her she made the right choice.
Dick had initially thought he would put up Jen and Kail, but he's gonna watch
and wait and see who starts to destroy themselves first.
Eric challenges Jen to a wrestling match.   It was a pretty intense match and
the match ended with Jen winning.  Eric didn't know she was so competitive.
Zach is shocked when Nik says he has a list of top 5 famous guys that he thinks
are visually appealing.  Zach and Dick give him such shit He tells Danielle that
he used to have to a top 5 list until he met her.  Danielle is uncomfortable
because although she likes Nick, she has a boyfriend at home that she is crazy
in love with.
Danielle and Dick meet at night at the hammock to discuss stuff.  She tells him
that she has feelings for Nick and says she doesn't want to hurt anyone.  She
says that her boyfriend, Chris, is the only one who has always been there for
her.  He reminds her that when they get out of the house, she may find her
feelings for Nick may not be real.  He then tells her she can depend on him,
that he will always be there for her. 
Dick is moved to tears and is upset that he doesn't have the perfect thing to
say when he talks to Dustin about it.
Amber gets weepy when she sees that Jameka is having a hard time downing her
"slop."  Dick says something about starving children in Africa and Jameka then
mentions that starving kids could be in Asia or any other poor country. She
tells Dick that she feels the pressure of being the only black person in the
house.  She's never lived with white people before.  She feels she has to put
forward a positive image of her entire race.
FOOD CHALLENGE
Two HUGE bowls of pasta.  There are two slides into the pasta bowls.  In the
pasta bowl are giant meatballs (basketballs) with words of foods written on
them.  Two at a time, house guests slide into the pasta bowl and then the two
must match the meatballs with the same food item.  They only have five minutes
to gather as many food items as possible.  At the end, the whole thing turns
into a giant pasta fight.
AMERICA'S PLAYER
Who should Eric get nominated for eviction?  He's told Jen.
Now, his orders are to become a secret vandal.  America is asked who he
should steal from.
Kail asks Dustin if it is true that Barney (the dinosaur) is gay.  He tells her
that Barney is a fictional character and probably doesn't have a sexual
preference.  Kail says that the way she feels about gay people hasn't changed,
but she likes Dustin.  He has a good heart.
Dick tells Zach that Kail outed him and the alliance out.  Zach reminds him that
he voted for him.  Dick says that he just jumped ship when Zach found out that
the house was voting 6-1 to get Joe out.
Nick talks to Dick about the nomination in the HOH room.  He tells Dick that he
told Danielle about the alliance.  Nick also tells Dick that he has true
feelings for Danielle. Dick tells him that he's really messing up Danielle's
life right now and that if he's playing her, he's playing him.  Nick assures him
he's not playing anyone. Dick feels it would be easier if Nick was out of the
house.
NOMINATION CEREMONY
Nominated for eviction are:  Kail and Jen
Jen because she put him up for eviction next week. Kail because she lied and
deceived him.  Sge shakes her head no, but Dick says "you can shake your head
no, but you did lie to everyone in the house."  Jen says she's been nominated
for eviction, but she doesn't feel any different.

THE NEXT FOOD NETWORK STAR - finale
Marc Summers (Unwrapped) hosted the live in-studio audience finale. There was a
recap from the beginning of the series, taking a look at ALL the contestants.
Jag and Rory were the two finalists in the running for the title of The Next
Food Network Star, however, when Jag admitted he lied about his qualifications,
he withdrew from the competition, which let Amy (the San Diego woman who trained
in France) was brought back into the contest.
Rory lives in Vega, Texas and lives with her cowboy boyfriend, Clay on his
ranch.  She's also opening her own restaurant, the Boot Hill Bar and Grill in
town.  The cable television company in the town of Vega didn't even carry the
Food Network channel, so when she got on the show, the town banned together and
demanded that Food Network be added.
Amy loves the beach in San Diego and wants to make sure her kids grow up to love
the beach as well.  Her two kids are named Indiana (boy) and Scarlett.  She
lives on the same property as her parents and brothers and sisters.

who is obviously feeling ashamed and that he missed out.  He gets prolonged
hugs from several of the contestants.

along the route. A time worm on the screen eats away at the length of the route,
so the children can see it decreasing. A cartoon character on screen plays games

PHONER

Summer Camp Stories

It's that time of year when parents everywhere heave a sigh of relief as
they send their little ones off to summer camp. Actual excerpts from kids
letters from camp:

Dera Mom &  Dad, I'm not a bit homesick. Some of the kids are. The ones who have  dogs.

Dear Mother, I am scribbling this note standing up because last night my
bunk burned down. Nothing much happens here.

Dear Mom, There is  a hundred and fifty boys in this camp. I wish it was a
hundred  and forty-nine.

Use these to seed the phoner and ask listeners for summer camp stories from their youth.

------

What is your pet afraid of?  My puppy's afraid of dandelions, Led
Zeppelin music, the vacuum and my electric toothbrush.  My friends big old
Golden Retriever turns into a meak mouse and runs into the hose whenever anybody touches a water hose...We opened the phones and this turned out to be hilarious!  Great calls.

-------

PHONE POLL: We found women that carry fake engagement rings to slip on in case they are being hit on by some loser guy.  They take them off if they are approached by somebody they would like to meet.

We asked if women were still doing this and was kosher.  We also talked to many women who said many guys aren't deterred by a wedding ring. Better yet...ask the ladies how they dismissed guys.  A surprising amount of women still use those fake phone number rejection lines..

------

Bug Mom and Work:

Easy bit that we haven't done in awhile.
We were clearing out some old ideas and thought this was very funny.
It's simple. It's Summer and it's HOT.
Too hot to really go out and play outside right now.
Most summer camp is already over.
These kids are just waiting for school to begin bored out of their
minds and their parents are beside themselves.
Soooo.
Look for someone around 12, 13 or 14 to give you a call.
They are home for a few hours and know their mom's number.
Just have them call and insist that they are bored. Over and Over and
over again.
Don't have them say anything else at all.
They win when mom looses it and goes off on them.
Good times.

-------

What Won't You Ever Do Again?

I'll never leave the light switch on while installing a ceiling fan again.
This was a fun one for us.
We could have gone all morning.
My favorite was from a woman.. who spoke very well.. incredible vocabulary
and said.
I'll never light my own fart with an open match again.

She told us her and her husband do it nearly every night.
Why.. that's every guy's beautiful dream but she said there was a backdraft deal and the large flame nearly shot right back up her buttocks.
She's lucky to be with us.

ON THE STREET

Summer Camp

              We sent our goat boy on an area Kids summer camp tour. Not
just to drop off t-shirts and other freebees, he had to spend the night
in each camps accommodations (cabin/tent/etc). Very funny bit.    We
also had him organize a camp talent show with a big prize and a huge
response. Killer stuff for the recorder.

Still time to do this...

Stuff the Bus
We teamed up with a local shelter here to Stuff a School Bus full of school
supplies for the underprivledged kids.  We collected, crayons, folders, book
bags, markers, paper, everything. It was nice to talk to some listeners who
as a kid were to poor to have school supplies, much less new supplies, who
were now adults and bringing bags of stuff for the kids.

LISTS

How's Little League going for you?

Here the coach's tips on how  to survive the little league season and turn  your  team into a winner. 

-Do  not draft any kid who has a father, mother,  grandparents,or
lives with any adults who might come to watch him play.

-The neater the kid, the cleaner the shoes, the newer the  glove,
the worse the kid plays.

-Never  offer to drive a kid home. The ones who need rides  never
live near you and they never know how to get to your house.

-Tell the fattest kid on the team that he is the catcher. This is
how we keep the sterotype alive. You have an obligation to do so.

How to beat your opponent:

-Forget  what  you see on TV. You only have three  kids  who  can
really  play. Bat them 1-2-3 in th lineup. They get up more,  the
team  scores  more, you win more. You're a  genius.  Cleanup?  An
interesting  concept. People with concepts rake the  field  after
the game.

-The way to beat 10 year olds is to make them throw the ball  and
catch it. Most of them don't do either very well. If a kid gets a
hit, tell him to keep running. The fielder has to throw the  ball
to  the next base where someone has to catch it and make the  bag
while  keeping  the  ball in the glove. Guess the  odds  of  THAT
happening.

-Pretend  you feel sorry for the opposing pitcher when  he  walks
six  batters  in  a row. Try not to laugh when you  tell  him  to
'relax, take your time, and just get it over.'
Want  to  see  a  kid walk TEN batters in  a  row?  Tell  him  to
'relax,take his time, and just get it over.'

-Just like you only have three hitters, you only have three  kids
who  can catch the ball-usually your shortstop (your  kid,  since
you're  the coach), your pitcher (thereby costing you  a  fielder),
and  your first baseman(maybe). Remember who is in  the  outfield
and  why  you  put them out there in the first  place.  In  other
words,  anything  your shortstop, pitcher or first  baseman  can
reach is theirs.

-Finally,  select a good looking mother to keep the score  during
the long lonely season. Oh, you would rather share the bench with
someone who has a knowledge of the game?

With kids out on their own and school starting soon here's a list of tips parents can teach their kids regarding attempted kidnappings

-give children permission to disobey an adult who may
want to hurt them. The moment they're snatched, they
should struggle to free themselves and run away.

 - if a stranger says he has lost his dog, or needs
help, he may be telling the truth. But, children should
first ask a parent for permission before they agree to
help an adult whom they don't know.

-to call for help on a phone, dial 911, say "help" then
put the phone down on a table and move away. The
disaptcher will automatically know the caller's
address, seeing a victim on the phone will anger a
kidnapper.

-when fleeing a meanacing stranger in a car, run in the
opposite direction to which the car is moving. Chances
are, the driver will not make a u-turn. -when approaching adults for help, use the Celcro Technique. Grab an arm or leg and do not let go until
the adult responds to your plea.

-If trapped in a moving car, it's okay to open the door
and get out when the car is not moving. Don't do what
the bad guys says, which is to sit there. If the door
is locked, jump in the back seat and try the other
doors.

-if trapped in the trunk, disconnect the tail lights by
pulling out the wires. you've increased dramatically
the chances that police will stop the car.

-Don't carry toys, or wear clothes with your name on
it. Kids are more likely to resond to an adult who
knows his or her name.

The Wisdom of Older Women

When I had been married 40 years, I took a look at my wife one
day and said, "Honey, 40 years ago, we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car,slept on a sofa bed and watched a 10 inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 25 year old babe.
"Now, we have a nice house, nice car, big bed and plasma screen TV, but I'm sleeping with a 65 year old woman. It seems to me that you are not holding up your side of things."
My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and
find a hot 25 year old babe, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed and watching a 10 inch black & white TV.
Aren't older women great? They really know how to solve your
mid-life crisis...
