It's fun to pick on the boys in the office, fun to play music, and fun to talk to you all day at work. Thanks for listening! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska. My whole family still lives there and I love going back to visit them, but I also love Texas. Barbecue, fajitas, and great live music....it's the place to be. I've lived in Texas for 16 years now. Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college. (The University of Nebraska...Go Huskers!) I've been on a hundred stations at one point or another. I just love radio. Other things I love....let's see. Blue ink. Black bores me a bit. I love cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and anything that the two happen to touch. I fall asleep in almost every movie I attempt to watch I have made it through Eat, Pray, Love and Mr. Wright. I like chick flicks. I have an awesome family and love spending time with them. You'll probably hear me talk about my daughters on the air. They're toddler girls who exhaust me, crack me up, and amaze me because I don't think I was ever that smart. I have two miniature schnauzers too. Thanks for stopping by. Now tell me about you.

How Much do you Spend on Halloween?

Does it feel like you spend $300 on Halloween?  Maybe you think it's only a few bags of candy and a costume, but when you do the math it adds up fast.

Did you know the average parent spends $32 on a child's costume, and the average pet owner spends $59 on a costume for the dog?  Priorities!  Can Fido even Trick-or Treat?  Chocolate is not good for dogs.

How long does it take you to decide what you're going to be?

Birth Order Can Determine Your Success

How can you increase your chances of having a child that grows up to be successful?  The answer according to a study is just have one.  An only-child is likely to grow up and earn six figures.

Careerbuilder.com had some other interesting findings in a new survey.  Single children may earn more, but those from families of more than one child are generally more satisfied with their jobs.

Halle Berry’s Broken Foot Slows Movie Production

Halle Berry has been in Spain filming a new movie called Cloud Atlas, and there's nothing like a broken foot and a cast to bring that to a standstill!
TMZ pictured Halle leaving the hospital in a wheelchair with a cast all the way up to her knee.  Berry reportedly broke the foot walking - just heard a pop and felt the pain.  Another source said she slipped and fell at the home she was renting.  We wonder if she was wearing these shoes at the time.
