Since it's all about where you went to High School around here I thought it would be fun to keep a list of upcoming area Class Reunions. If you have one coming up please e-mail info at email@example.com.
The Animal Protective Association of Missouri came by the studio yesterday and brought two of the sweetest fur babies with them. These two both need a forever home. Say hello to Daisy and Chloe :)
See the bling bling my Dad gave me over the weekend. Yeah, not a fan of the term "Cougar" but it did make me laugh since I just turned a year older last month. My Dad just so happens to be 9 months younger than my beautiful "Cougar" Mom too and he never lets her forget that.
I did wear it out to with my girlfriends and they couldn't stop laughing and wanted to know where they could get one. Maybe my Dad can start up a new business when he retires...LOL
I found this on Alive Magazine's website and had to share with all my single peeps. If you've ever done speed dating now say hello to Weed Dating.

I recently met talented St. Louisan Bob Kuban. What a nice guy! I can't tell you how many times I've heard him play or been at the same events but I finally got to sit down with him and just chat. He shared his favorite music and what young artist he would like to work with on a remix of his hit "The Cheater".....
And let's see what we can do about helping him get that duet to happen by following him on Facebook....
Did you know the average work commute has only gone up about three minutes in the past 50 years? In 1960, the average commute took 22.4 minutes. And in 2010, it was 25.5 minutes.
But the average DISTANCE travelled has gone up. In the '60s, about 10% of people could walk to work. Now only about 3% can. Check out seven more ways the average American's life has changed in the past 50 years.
1. We Watch a Lot More TV. Which you probably assumed already, but here are the numbers . . .
In 1962, the average household watched a total of 5 hours and 6 minutes of TV each day. And by 2012, it was 8 hours and 31 minutes. So in 50 years, it went up about 67% percent.
2. We're More Likely to Live with Our Parents After We Turn 18. In 1960, 13% of young adults were still living at home. Today, it's up to 24%.
3. We Spend More Years of Our Life Single. Or in other words, people wait longer to get married, which you probably knew. In 1960, 72% of all adults were hitched. But by 2010, it had fallen to 51%.
4. We're Less Likely to Smoke Cigarettes, but More Likely to Smoke Pot. Today, 23% of men over the age of 18 smoke cigarettes, compared to a whopping 54% in the mid-60's. But in 1969, only 4% of adults said they'd tried marijuana, compared to 48% now.
5. Men Are Doing More Housework, and Women Are Doing Less. In 1965, women averaged 28 hours of housework per week, and men only averaged FOUR. Today, the average woman does 15, and the average guy does nine.
So, housework for men has more than doubled, and housework for women has almost been cut in half. But women STILL do more.
6. Men Work Ten Fewer Hours Per Week, and Women Work Ten More. In 1965, the average guy worked 45 hours a week, and women worked 15 hours. Today, it's dropped to 35 hours for men, and increased to 25 hours for women.
7. We're Much More Likely to Elect a Female President. In 1963, 55% of people said that if their party nominated a well-qualified woman for president, they'd vote for her. A poll from 2007 . . . when Hillary Clinton ran . . . showed that 88% would.
