    SENATE VOTES AGAINST HAVING A VOTE TO EXPRESS NO CONFIDENCE IN GONZALES
    By a vote of 53-38 the U.S. Senate voted against bringing a measure to the floor that would allow a vote of "no confidence" in Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.  The vote to vote would require 60 votes to pass and while several Republicans voted with the Democrats in favor of the vote, several Democratic Senators also failed to vote for the Harry Reid backed measure. Democratic Presidential candidates and leaders like Obama, Dodd and Biden did not even vote.  In fact, even if the vote were taken and the "no confidence" was extended to Gonzales it would mean very little. The Attorney General serves only at the pleasure of the President who continues to back Gonzales.  Congress could remove him by impeachment but so far they have found nothing to charge him with.

    *The American people have issued a vote of no confidence in Congress and in the Senate. I don't know if you saw it, but Harry Reid's approval rating was 19 percent. (Press Secretary, Tony Snow)


    10 YEAR SENTENCE FOR TEEN SEX THROWN OUT IN GEORIA..BUT A.G. WILL APPEAL
    A battle over justice in Georgia has involved the likes of Jimmy Carter,
    Mark Cuban and others.  Genarolow Wilson, 17 at the time he had consenual oral sex with a 15 year old girl was sentenced to 10 years in prison and has how now spent 2 years there, convicted of aggravated child molestation. Judge Thomas H. Wilson, no relation, threw out the conviction, calling the case a "grave miscarriage of justice." The case involved a part of five boys and two girls at a party that was videotaped. All were black.  Wilson called for the boy's release but state Attorney General Thurbert Baker, who is also black, said he would appeal, which would keep him in prison. Hundreds, including Carter, Cuban and other notables have protested but the A.G. wants to take it to the state Supreme Court.

    *Looks like another case of a lawyer trying to further his career

    APPEALS COURT SAYS U.S. CANNOT DETAIN RESIDENT WITHOUT CHARGES
    The 4th U.S. Circuit Count of Appeals, by a 2-1 vote, ruled yesterday that
    the Bush administration cannot legally detain a U.S. resident it believes
    is a terrorist without charging him, simply by labeling him as an "enemy
    combatant."  The case involves Qatar citizen, but legal U.S. resident, Ali
    al-Marri who the U.S. believes is an al-Qaeda sleeper agent.  He has been
    in military detention since 2001.  The court sanctioning the indefinite
    detention of civilians would have "disastrous consequences for the
    Constitution and the country."  al-Marri was arrested in Peoria, Illinois
    and charged him with stealing credit card numbers.  They, then found links
    to al-Qaeda on his computer and moved him to military detention.

    *Every case like this has been overturned once it hits the Supreme Court

    ATLANTIS MISSION EXTENDED TWO DAYS TO FIX HOLE IN THERMAL BLANKET
    The lack of adhesion for the thermal blanket on the outside of the shuttle
    continues to plague NASA on almost every mission.  The space agency announced the planned 11 day mission will now be 13 days to give astronauts time to repair a 4 x 6 inch hole over a pod for engines, that peeled back on launch. The repairs will be made during a planned third spacewalk but could require a fourth to finish.  Engineers believe that will take care of any safety concerns when Atlantis returns to earth.

    AND EVEN MORE

    GUESS WHERE THE CLEANEST WATER COMES FROM AT ONE SCHOOL
    Your dog's not so stupid after all for drinking out of the toilet bowl.  Turns
    out that's where some of the cleanest water is...at least according to research conducted by Middle School student Kyleray Katherman. For a class assignment, he tested the bacteria content at four water fountains and one toilet to challenge a ban on students from bringing bottled water to class. (some were filling their water bottles with alcohol.)  Katherman, 13, used Q-tips and petri dishes, swabbing the spigots of four fountains and sampling one toilet, dunking the cotton in the bowl's center and then dragging it around the rim for a complete sample then watched for bacterial growth.  The petri dishes with fountain water were swarming with bacteria. The sample from the toilet was clean. "I wanted to see the looks on their faces," Katherman said. Either allow water bottles back,
    or install office style water coolers. Administrators quickly replaced the
    spigots and casing at three of the water fountains and custodians gave them all a thorough cleaning. More teachers are providing water in classrooms now, but the ban on water bottles remains.

    BROTHERS KILLED IN SEPERATE ACCIDENTS ON SAME DAY
    Two brothers from Winterport, Maine, were killed in separate highway crashes less than seven hours apart. Adrian Basford, 52, lost his life around 5:30pm Saturday when he lost control of his motorcycle going fast around a curve and struck an embankment.  His brother, Wallace Basford, 48, was killed just before midnight in a single-vehicle crash when his van failed to negotiate a left turn as he was coming off a bridge and slammed into a ledge wall.  The younger Basford had gotten word of his brother's death and had visited his brother's accident scene.  Trooper Stephen Hills, who investigated the motorcycle accident, said that the brothers' father had died recently.

    CALIFORNIA: MAKE POT LEGAL
    So much illegal marijuana is being grown and seized in Mendocino County,
    California, that supervisors there are calling for its legalization. Four of the
    county's five supervisors have now sent a letter to Washington D.C. urging the federal government to legalize and regulate marijuana as it does alcohol. They argue that legalizing the drug would give officials more control over where it's grown, its distribution and its use.

    HOLLYSTAR LATE NIGHT UPDATE

    Pat O'Brien has signed a new, two-year deal to continue co-hosting "The Insider."  O'Brien will remain in L.A.

    "Access Hollywood" host, Nancy O'Dell and her husband, Keith Zubchevich, welcomed a baby girl, Ashby Grace, on Monday. O'Dell, 41, and Zubchevich, 38, wed in 2005 after meeting on a security line at Burbank's Bob Hope airport in 2004.

    The 8th season of "Big Brother" begins July 5th.  The show will air  on CBS on Thursday and Sunday nights at 8pm, as well as Tuesday night at 9pm.

    Barbara Walters was able to talk to Paris Hilton from jail on Sunday.  In their
    conversation, Paris said she had not been wailing, sobbing or screaming as had
    been described in some news reports.  She does admit to not sleeping or eating
    and falling into depression. Walters says Paris told her that Paris is not the
    same person any more... "I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old,
    and that act is no longer cute." Paris says she wants to do some charity work
    when she gets out of jail. According to her spiritual adviser, Paris's spirit or
    soul did not like the way she was being seen and that is why she was sent to
    jail. "God," she said, "has released me."

    TV LAST NIGHT

    (We watched TV for you last night)


    The only current show was Hell's Kitchen, with the exception of that
    animated show, Creature Comfort.

    HELL'S KITCHEN

    The girls are in shock after Chef Ramsey called them bitches. They blame each other for losing the task.  Aaron tries to lose weight so he won't slow the team down.  He eats only an apple all day.

    The chefs are woken up at 5:56 am.  Chef Ramsey tells the contestants they are going to catch their own fish.  They were excited to go on a boat and drop a hook in the water, but no.  He opens the back of a truck and starts throwing fish at them to catch.

    Aaron starts to cry because he's starting to feel a little dizzy.  Ramsey tells
    him to go sit down for a while.

    The challenge is to clean as many dover soles as they can in thirty minutes.  They have to pull off the skin without damaging the fish, and then push out all the fish eggs.

    The blue team (boys) has 8 fish that pass inspection.
    The red team (girls) has 9 fish

    For winning the challenge, Ramsey takes the women out for lunch on a boat to go fishing.  They talk about teamwork and strategy.

    The guys have to prep all the dover sole left in the restaurant. Aaron joins the team four hours later,  He tells his team that he just wants to quit.  The guys try to keep him from leaving by organizing a team hug.

    Aaron tells the girls that he is intimidated because everyone is so much smarter than him. 

    On the menu:  Pan fried dover sole.  

    Chef tells Aaron he has to serve the fish to the tables.  Ramsey tells him the assignment should help him gain confidence and take some of the pressure off.  Chef asks him if he's ok....but Aaron goes down in a dead faint.  He pops out of it and goes to work. 

    Neither team is doing well.  He unloads on Bonnie, calling her a dumb blonde when she puts the wrong number of scallops on the plate. 

    Aaron has to debone the fish.  It takes him 15 minutes and now the fish is cold and Aaroon is dripping in sweat.  Even so, all the customers complain about getting bones iin their fish.

    Eddie's risotto is so bad, he's taken off the section. 

    The red team serves 23 entrees while the blue team has served only 9.

    Josh sends out raw beef in the Beef Wellington. 

    Melissa goes to help Joanna.  Chef gets mad and Joanna says that Melissa is  just trying to show she can do it all.

    Chef really nails the boys and kicks them out of the kitchen.   The girls not
    only complete their dinner service, they also get the boys' dinner service out.

    Nominated to leave are Josh and Eddie.

    PHONER

    Today is "Crowded Nest Awareness Day"..the kid graduates from high school...gets up from in front of the TV, leaves his messy room, heads for 4 years of college, while you figure out how to pay for it..College is over!  They've graduated!  Now they're out on their own!  Wait..didn't quite work out..they're back in their messy room, sleeping late..and back in front of the TV..nothing has changed except your bank account has a few less zeros at the end of it...

    *Crowded Nest Syndrome.  When adult children just won't leave.  Great calls, but what surprised me most were the vocal minority who were pissed off by the topic.  Man, those loser leeches are touchy.  My favorite was the 38 year old guy who secretly lives IN THE RETIREMENT HOME WITH HIS MOM.  Yikes.

    How do you get them to leave? Do you charge them room and board?  Who has their kid living the longest with them?
    -----
    One last visit to the Prom subject...

    How did the chaperones get out of hand?...We've been doing alot of prom stuff...Who had the chaperones get out of hand at their prom and had to be asked to leave.  Some examples, one girl whose mother was chaperone and she showed up wasted and without panties.  How did they know she didn't have panties on?  She was dancing with some of the kids at the prom and bending over to rub her butt against them. Classy.  Another girl had a chaperone suffer a beat down at the hands of two of the high school guys because he grabbed at their dates.  He too was drinking throughout the prom.  You'll notice a pattern of drinking in most of these cases.  Great stories though.

    ---

    The kids are home for the summer...What's the best part about having them home?  What's the worst part?

    How many parents have said to their kids.."You're not going to waste this summer last you did last year, just sitting in front of the TV or playing video games..you're going to do something with it..get a job..read some books....take a class and learn something"  Do they ever do it?  They do? How did you motivate them?

    -----

    What secret has dad been keeping from from his wife? Or what secret have
    the kids or mom been keeping from good ol' dad?

    -----

    Father's Day

    Do a kids say the dardest thing segment about there dads.Get the kids on
    the phone let them go at it.

    Put dad on the spot ... ask the kids personal questions about dad
    Ask them ...has dad ever said pull my finger? What happens
    Does he pass gas? When? (Morning, after dinner...)

    Whats in Daddys wallet?

    Get them to tell you his credit card number.....you get the idea.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ON THE STREET

    Summer's are the worst time...

    FOOD drive

    We are having a canned food drive for the local food pantry. I read an
    article that food pantries suffer during the summer because people usually
    donate food during the holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and during the summer the shelves are bare. I contacted our local food pantry and we joined forces with a food drive. Tons of kids are home, and they don't have food to eat, the schools have free lunch during the summer but parents are working and can't get their kid there. So they need cereal, peanut butter, and canned meat.  We are having the drive all day long at the station, and its turning into a huge success!  Its a good local community thing to do.

    LISTS

    DADS AND THEIR KIDS

    Don't be surprised if you see more dads on the playground with the kids during the workday. According to a new CareerBuilder.com survey,

    37% of working dads say they'd leave their jobs if their spouse or partner
        made enough money to support the family.
    38% would take a pay-cut to spend more time with their kids.

    (Source: The CareerBuilder.com survey, "Working Dads 2007")

    24% of working dads feel work is negatively impacting their relationship with    their children.
    48% have missed a significant event in their child's life due to work at least   once in the last year
    18% have missed four or more.

    27% of working dads say they spend more than 50 hours a week on work
     8% spend more than 60 hours. In terms of the time they spend with their children
    25% of working dads spend less than one hour with their kids each day.
    42% spend less than two hours each day.

    36% of working dads say their company does not offer flexible work arrangements   such as flexible schedules, telecommuting, job sharing and more.

    Richard Castellini, Vice President of Consumer Marketing at CareerBuilder.com and father of three, offers the following tips to help dads gain a healthy work/life balance:

    1. Keep in touch -- While you're at work, make a quick call in between meetings  and projects and let your children know they're top of mind.

    2. Plan a kid-friendly potluck -- If co-workers in your department have kids,  ask your boss if you can have a kid-friendly potluck for lunch on a Friday.  Not   only does this allow the kids to spend extra time with you, but it also gives  the employees in your department time to get to know each other better.

    3. Give Your Undivided Attention -- When you're at home spending time with your  family, turn off your cell phone, step away from the e-mails and give your  undivided attention.  If you bring work home, do it after the kids have gone to  bed.

    4. Keep one calendar -- Schedule baseball games and play recitals on the same  calendar you use for meetings and travel to make sure you never double-book   yourself.  Save your vacation days for those special events in your children's  lives, so you're there and in the front row.

    5. Make time -- At least once a week, schedule a family activity that involves  interaction such as a game, bike ride, trip to the playground, etc.  Also, make  sure to schedule a date night for you and your significant other.

    MIND BENDER

    Suzanne Marie Butts is facing three years of jail after stealing this
    from the courthouse.

    Answer:

    3 rolls of toilet paper

    Police Chief, Lon Walker said workers had noticed the rolls disappearing from the Marshall County Courthouse much faster than usual. Butts, 38, was caught last week after an employee saw her taking three rolls of two-ply tissue from a storage closet. Butts insisted it was the first time she'd pilfered toilet paper, But Butts could face more time if convicted under the state's habitual offender law because she has prior theft convictions.

    JOKE TO GO

     

    June 7th, or 7/7/07 is predicted to be the most popular wedding day in history because of the significance of the numbers. Paul McCartney says he still regrets being married on 6/6/06 (Jim Barach)



    A little boy came home from school crying. His mother asked him,
    "What's wrong, Johnny? Why are you crying?"

    Johnny said, "The kids were teasing me. They said I have a
    big head. They called me 'head case' and 'bushel head'
    and all sorts of other horrible names."

    "Nonsense, Johnny. Your head is no larger than the other kids.
    Come here and sit on my lap," said his mother. She told him
    how she loved him and how special he was and finally he
    stopped crying. She had cheered him up so he was his usual
    happy self.

    "Now, Johnny," she said, "I would like you to go to the store
    for me. Would you get the Sunday edition of 'The New York
    Times', a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, and a large soda pop?"

    "How am I going to get them home, Mommy?" asked Johnny.
    "My wagon is broken. Remember?"
    "That's okay," she said, "just put them in your cap."

SENATE VOTES AGAINST HAVING A VOTE TO EXPRESS NO CONFIDENCE IN GONZALES
By a vote of 53-38 the U.S. Senate voted against bringing a measure to the floor that would allow a vote of "no confidence" in Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.  The vote to vote would require 60 votes to pass and while several Republicans voted with the Democrats in favor of the vote, several Democratic Senators also failed to vote for the Harry Reid backed measure. Democratic Presidential candidates and leaders like Obama, Dodd and Biden did not even vote.  In fact, even if the vote were taken and the "no confidence" was extended to Gonzales it would mean very little. The Attorney General serves only at the pleasure of the President who continues to back Gonzales.  Congress could remove him by impeachment but so far they have found nothing to charge him with.

*The American people have issued a vote of no confidence in Congress and in the Senate. I don't know if you saw it, but Harry Reid's approval rating was 19 percent. (Press Secretary, Tony Snow)


10 YEAR SENTENCE FOR TEEN SEX THROWN OUT IN GEORIA..BUT A.G. WILL APPEAL
A battle over justice in Georgia has involved the likes of Jimmy Carter,
Mark Cuban and others.  Genarolow Wilson, 17 at the time he had consenual oral sex with a 15 year old girl was sentenced to 10 years in prison and has how now spent 2 years there, convicted of aggravated child molestation. Judge Thomas H. Wilson, no relation, threw out the conviction, calling the case a "grave miscarriage of justice." The case involved a part of five boys and two girls at a party that was videotaped. All were black.  Wilson called for the boy's release but state Attorney General Thurbert Baker, who is also black, said he would appeal, which would keep him in prison. Hundreds, including Carter, Cuban and other notables have protested but the A.G. wants to take it to the state Supreme Court.

*Looks like another case of a lawyer trying to further his career

APPEALS COURT SAYS U.S. CANNOT DETAIN RESIDENT WITHOUT CHARGES
The 4th U.S. Circuit Count of Appeals, by a 2-1 vote, ruled yesterday that
the Bush administration cannot legally detain a U.S. resident it believes
is a terrorist without charging him, simply by labeling him as an "enemy
combatant."  The case involves Qatar citizen, but legal U.S. resident, Ali
al-Marri who the U.S. believes is an al-Qaeda sleeper agent.  He has been
in military detention since 2001.  The court sanctioning the indefinite
detention of civilians would have "disastrous consequences for the
Constitution and the country."  al-Marri was arrested in Peoria, Illinois
and charged him with stealing credit card numbers.  They, then found links
to al-Qaeda on his computer and moved him to military detention.

*Every case like this has been overturned once it hits the Supreme Court

ATLANTIS MISSION EXTENDED TWO DAYS TO FIX HOLE IN THERMAL BLANKET
The lack of adhesion for the thermal blanket on the outside of the shuttle
continues to plague NASA on almost every mission.  The space agency announced the planned 11 day mission will now be 13 days to give astronauts time to repair a 4 x 6 inch hole over a pod for engines, that peeled back on launch. The repairs will be made during a planned third spacewalk but could require a fourth to finish.  Engineers believe that will take care of any safety concerns when Atlantis returns to earth.

GUESS WHERE THE CLEANEST WATER COMES FROM AT ONE SCHOOL
Your dog's not so stupid after all for drinking out of the toilet bowl.  Turns
out that's where some of the cleanest water is...at least according to research conducted by Middle School student Kyleray Katherman. For a class assignment, he tested the bacteria content at four water fountains and one toilet to challenge a ban on students from bringing bottled water to class. (some were filling their water bottles with alcohol.)  Katherman, 13, used Q-tips and petri dishes, swabbing the spigots of four fountains and sampling one toilet, dunking the cotton in the bowl's center and then dragging it around the rim for a complete sample then watched for bacterial growth.  The petri dishes with fountain water were swarming with bacteria. The sample from the toilet was clean. "I wanted to see the looks on their faces," Katherman said. Either allow water bottles back,
or install office style water coolers. Administrators quickly replaced the
spigots and casing at three of the water fountains and custodians gave them all a thorough cleaning. More teachers are providing water in classrooms now, but the ban on water bottles remains.

BROTHERS KILLED IN SEPERATE ACCIDENTS ON SAME DAY
Two brothers from Winterport, Maine, were killed in separate highway crashes less than seven hours apart. Adrian Basford, 52, lost his life around 5:30pm Saturday when he lost control of his motorcycle going fast around a curve and struck an embankment.  His brother, Wallace Basford, 48, was killed just before midnight in a single-vehicle crash when his van failed to negotiate a left turn as he was coming off a bridge and slammed into a ledge wall.  The younger Basford had gotten word of his brother's death and had visited his brother's accident scene.  Trooper Stephen Hills, who investigated the motorcycle accident, said that the brothers' father had died recently.

CALIFORNIA: MAKE POT LEGAL
So much illegal marijuana is being grown and seized in Mendocino County,
California, that supervisors there are calling for its legalization. Four of the
county's five supervisors have now sent a letter to Washington D.C. urging the federal government to legalize and regulate marijuana as it does alcohol. They argue that legalizing the drug would give officials more control over where it's grown, its distribution and its use.

HOLLYSTAR LATE NIGHT UPDATE

Pat O'Brien has signed a new, two-year deal to continue co-hosting "The Insider."  O'Brien will remain in L.A.

"Access Hollywood" host, Nancy O'Dell and her husband, Keith Zubchevich, welcomed a baby girl, Ashby Grace, on Monday. O'Dell, 41, and Zubchevich, 38, wed in 2005 after meeting on a security line at Burbank's Bob Hope airport in 2004.

The 8th season of "Big Brother" begins July 5th.  The show will air  on CBS on Thursday and Sunday nights at 8pm, as well as Tuesday night at 9pm.

Barbara Walters was able to talk to Paris Hilton from jail on Sunday.  In their
conversation, Paris said she had not been wailing, sobbing or screaming as had
been described in some news reports.  She does admit to not sleeping or eating
and falling into depression. Walters says Paris told her that Paris is not the
same person any more... "I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old,
and that act is no longer cute." Paris says she wants to do some charity work
when she gets out of jail. According to her spiritual adviser, Paris's spirit or
soul did not like the way she was being seen and that is why she was sent to
jail. "God," she said, "has released me."

TV LAST NIGHT

(We watched TV for you last night)


The only current show was Hell's Kitchen, with the exception of that
animated show, Creature Comfort.

HELL'S KITCHEN

The girls are in shock after Chef Ramsey called them bitches. They blame each other for losing the task.  Aaron tries to lose weight so he won't slow the team down.  He eats only an apple all day.

The chefs are woken up at 5:56 am.  Chef Ramsey tells the contestants they are going to catch their own fish.  They were excited to go on a boat and drop a hook in the water, but no.  He opens the back of a truck and starts throwing fish at them to catch.

Aaron starts to cry because he's starting to feel a little dizzy.  Ramsey tells
him to go sit down for a while.

The challenge is to clean as many dover soles as they can in thirty minutes.  They have to pull off the skin without damaging the fish, and then push out all the fish eggs.

The blue team (boys) has 8 fish that pass inspection.
The red team (girls) has 9 fish

For winning the challenge, Ramsey takes the women out for lunch on a boat to go fishing.  They talk about teamwork and strategy.

The guys have to prep all the dover sole left in the restaurant. Aaron joins the team four hours later,  He tells his team that he just wants to quit.  The guys try to keep him from leaving by organizing a team hug.

Aaron tells the girls that he is intimidated because everyone is so much smarter than him. 

On the menu:  Pan fried dover sole.  

Chef tells Aaron he has to serve the fish to the tables.  Ramsey tells him the assignment should help him gain confidence and take some of the pressure off.  Chef asks him if he's ok....but Aaron goes down in a dead faint.  He pops out of it and goes to work. 

Neither team is doing well.  He unloads on Bonnie, calling her a dumb blonde when she puts the wrong number of scallops on the plate. 

Aaron has to debone the fish.  It takes him 15 minutes and now the fish is cold and Aaroon is dripping in sweat.  Even so, all the customers complain about getting bones iin their fish.

Eddie's risotto is so bad, he's taken off the section. 

The red team serves 23 entrees while the blue team has served only 9.

Josh sends out raw beef in the Beef Wellington. 

Melissa goes to help Joanna.  Chef gets mad and Joanna says that Melissa is  just trying to show she can do it all.

Chef really nails the boys and kicks them out of the kitchen.   The girls not
only complete their dinner service, they also get the boys' dinner service out.

Nominated to leave are Josh and Eddie.

Today is "Crowded Nest Awareness Day"..the kid graduates from high school...gets up from in front of the TV, leaves his messy room, heads for 4 years of college, while you figure out how to pay for it..College is over!  They've graduated!  Now they're out on their own!  Wait..didn't quite work out..they're back in their messy room, sleeping late..and back in front of the TV..nothing has changed except your bank account has a few less zeros at the end of it...

*Crowded Nest Syndrome.  When adult children just won't leave.  Great calls, but what surprised me most were the vocal minority who were pissed off by the topic.  Man, those loser leeches are touchy.  My favorite was the 38 year old guy who secretly lives IN THE RETIREMENT HOME WITH HIS MOM.  Yikes.

How do you get them to leave? Do you charge them room and board?  Who has their kid living the longest with them?
-----
One last visit to the Prom subject...

How did the chaperones get out of hand?...We've been doing alot of prom stuff...Who had the chaperones get out of hand at their prom and had to be asked to leave.  Some examples, one girl whose mother was chaperone and she showed up wasted and without panties.  How did they know she didn't have panties on?  She was dancing with some of the kids at the prom and bending over to rub her butt against them. Classy.  Another girl had a chaperone suffer a beat down at the hands of two of the high school guys because he grabbed at their dates.  He too was drinking throughout the prom.  You'll notice a pattern of drinking in most of these cases.  Great stories though.

---

The kids are home for the summer...What's the best part about having them home?  What's the worst part?

How many parents have said to their kids.."You're not going to waste this summer last you did last year, just sitting in front of the TV or playing video games..you're going to do something with it..get a job..read some books....take a class and learn something"  Do they ever do it?  They do? How did you motivate them?

-----

What secret has dad been keeping from from his wife? Or what secret have
the kids or mom been keeping from good ol' dad?

-----

Father's Day

Do a kids say the dardest thing segment about there dads.Get the kids on
the phone let them go at it.

Put dad on the spot ... ask the kids personal questions about dad
Ask them ...has dad ever said pull my finger? What happens
Does he pass gas? When? (Morning, after dinner...)

Whats in Daddys wallet?

Get them to tell you his credit card number.....you get the idea.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
ON THE STREET

Summer's are the worst time...

FOOD drive

We are having a canned food drive for the local food pantry. I read an
article that food pantries suffer during the summer because people usually
donate food during the holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, and during the summer the shelves are bare. I contacted our local food pantry and we joined forces with a food drive. Tons of kids are home, and they don't have food to eat, the schools have free lunch during the summer but parents are working and can't get their kid there. So they need cereal, peanut butter, and canned meat.  We are having the drive all day long at the station, and its turning into a huge success!  Its a good local community thing to do.

LISTS

DADS AND THEIR KIDS

Don't be surprised if you see more dads on the playground with the kids during the workday. According to a new CareerBuilder.com survey,

37% of working dads say they'd leave their jobs if their spouse or partner
    made enough money to support the family.
38% would take a pay-cut to spend more time with their kids.

(Source: The CareerBuilder.com survey, "Working Dads 2007")

24% of working dads feel work is negatively impacting their relationship with    their children.
48% have missed a significant event in their child's life due to work at least   once in the last year
18% have missed four or more.

27% of working dads say they spend more than 50 hours a week on work
 8% spend more than 60 hours. In terms of the time they spend with their children
25% of working dads spend less than one hour with their kids each day.
42% spend less than two hours each day.

36% of working dads say their company does not offer flexible work arrangements   such as flexible schedules, telecommuting, job sharing and more.

Richard Castellini, Vice President of Consumer Marketing at CareerBuilder.com and father of three, offers the following tips to help dads gain a healthy work/life balance:

1. Keep in touch -- While you're at work, make a quick call in between meetings  and projects and let your children know they're top of mind.

2. Plan a kid-friendly potluck -- If co-workers in your department have kids,  ask your boss if you can have a kid-friendly potluck for lunch on a Friday.  Not   only does this allow the kids to spend extra time with you, but it also gives  the employees in your department time to get to know each other better.

3. Give Your Undivided Attention -- When you're at home spending time with your  family, turn off your cell phone, step away from the e-mails and give your  undivided attention.  If you bring work home, do it after the kids have gone to  bed.

4. Keep one calendar -- Schedule baseball games and play recitals on the same  calendar you use for meetings and travel to make sure you never double-book   yourself.  Save your vacation days for those special events in your children's  lives, so you're there and in the front row.

5. Make time -- At least once a week, schedule a family activity that involves  interaction such as a game, bike ride, trip to the playground, etc.  Also, make  sure to schedule a date night for you and your significant other.

from the courthouse.

Answer:

3 rolls of toilet paper

Police Chief, Lon Walker said workers had noticed the rolls disappearing from the Marshall County Courthouse much faster than usual.

Butts insisted it was the first time she'd pilfered toilet paper, But Butts could face more time if convicted under the state's habitual offender law because she has prior theft convictions.

The camp will also feature Leslie West and Corky Laing (Mountain), Mark Farner (formerly of Grand Funk Railroad), Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Go's), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Alan White (YES), Simon Kirke (Bad Company), Eddie Ojeda (Twisted Sister), Scott Ian (Anthrax), Spike Edney (Queen), Skunk Baxter (Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers) and Kip Winger (Winger).

Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp was dubbed the "most amazing rock 'n' roll lifestyle experience" by The London Times and "brilliant" by ABC Good Morning America. The camp has been featured on television shows such as Ellen, where Ellen Degeneres jammed with Bonnie Raitt and David Crosby, and on the episode of The Simpsons where Homer goes to Fantasy Camp and jams with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.

Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp was created by rock and roll producer David Fishof, a twenty-five year veteran of the music business.

JOKE TO GO

 

June 7th, or 7/7/07 is predicted to be the most popular wedding day in history because of the significance of the numbers. Paul McCartney says he still regrets being married on 6/6/06 (Jim Barach)



A little boy came home from school crying. His mother asked him,
"What's wrong, Johnny? Why are you crying?"

Johnny said, "The kids were teasing me. They said I have a
big head. They called me 'head case' and 'bushel head'
and all sorts of other horrible names."

"Nonsense, Johnny. Your head is no larger than the other kids.
Come here and sit on my lap," said his mother. She told him
how she loved him and how special he was and finally he
stopped crying. She had cheered him up so he was his usual
happy self.

"Now, Johnny," she said, "I would like you to go to the store
for me. Would you get the Sunday edition of 'The New York
Times', a gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, and a large soda pop?"

"How am I going to get them home, Mommy?" asked Johnny.
"My wagon is broken. Remember?"
"That's okay," she said, "just put them in your cap."
