What Do We Get?!?!

THE GIFT

Need your help folks.

My wife’s sister Lisa and Lynne were discussing what to give their cousin for his wedding gift. 

She (Lisa) said she asked people she worked with and her friends in FL and they all said something off of the registry that was put together for the shower. 

Lynne’s says her practice has always been to give money...typically she would give money to cover the cost of my plate.  Normally around $50 per person. 

For No Reason

SHOT WHILE WALKING

This is a strange story.

A West Virginia man is hitchhiking across the country seeking answers.

So far he’s made it to Montana was injured in a seemingly random drive-by shooting.

Ray Dolin, 39, was shot in the arm as he approached a pickup Saturday evening, thinking the driver was offering him a ride.

The freelance photographer looks like he’s gonna be okay.

New Stats About Texting From A Scary Source

PLEASE STOP DOING IT

CNN did a report on how long you can look away from the wheel and read a text.

On average anyone who drives and reads texts while driving does it for about 5 seconds.

A lot of us think it’s not harmful to do a “quick” look for a few seconds. But when you’re driving how far is 5 seconds?

25mph – 150feet

35mph – over 250 feet

Imagine going faster like 45 or 55mph, you could cover the length of Neyland Stadium! (football field)

The Summer Job

TEENS AND JOBS

If you’ve been hard on your teen already about not getting a Summer job it may not be their fault.

A new report says Summer jobs for teens are disappearing.

Check this out. Fewer than three in 10 American teenagers now hold jobs such as running cash registers, mowing lawns or busing restaurant tables from June to August.

The decline has been particularly sharp since 2000, with employment for 16-to-19-year olds falling to the lowest level since World War II.

Oh Come On... They Banned THIS?!?!

SIDEWALK CHALK

Subdivisions... We love them because there are plenty of people and kids around and fun going on and we feel safer; but then there are the RULES and The homeowners association... 

A Real Jogging Buddy

JOGGOBOT

We saw this and it is the NEXT step to staying in shape and having a fitness coach that will help push you. The hard part about working out is NOT being motivated is we all want to be fit BUT it's getting up off the couch after a hard, long day at work and then finding someone to do it with you. 

Reddit Helps Fund Trip of a LIfetime

AROUND THE WORLD

Jake Villanueva is a 23-year-old Surrey, B.C. man who has cancer. On Father's Day of last year Jame was diagnosed with kidney cancer and given 6 months to live. Jake was asked how it felt to have that diagnosis and he said, "When you're told you have a terminal disease, you can never work again, you basically have to come home and live with your parents: Can you imagine at 22 what that must feel like?"

Listener Email: "He Can't Handle Me When I'm Upset!"

Ashley and Brad,

Most of the time I feel like I'm with an amazing guy. My boyfriend is strong and smart and funny and we get along really well.

The only major problem in our relationship is that he has no idea how to handle me when I get upset.

If I'm stressed out and start crying, he totally shuts down and doesn't even attempt to comfort me.

I've gotten upset with him about this a few times and his answer is always the same -- he says he's not naturally good at that and that's what my girlfriends are for.

I don't know what to do about this.

Spray On Tan Warning

SPRAY ON TAN

Okay, when I say THE TANNED MOM, I think we all know WHO I am talking about!  And just maybe HER look has convinced you that tanning beds are not good for us.  So onto the next alternative: THE SPRAY ON TAN! 

After all, no burning the skin, no PRE-mature aging, no UVR rays, no melanoma or other skins conditions. BUT (and you may not like this) even the SPRAY ON TAN has its side effects! 

AHHHHH

Bacon! (on a Sundae?)

Well...well... all the way from New York City comes something WE here in Tennessee came up with... and I'm not so sure I'm proud of it!

The world's second biggest hamburger chain is launching several pork, beef and chicken sandwiches as limited time offers starting tomorrow.
