SHUT YOUR MOUTH

Mimi Duphily was hanging baskets of pink geraniums on antique street lamps downtown for the Middleborough Beautification and Activities Group when she noticed something else that needed cleaning up -- citizens' mouths.

"The cursing has gotten very, very bad. I find it appalling and I won't tolerate it," said Duphily, a civic leader in the otherwise quiet New England community, which calls itself the Cranberry Capital of the World. "No person should be allowed to talk in that manner."

"Dallas"

THE SHOW IS COMING BACK

There must be something with certain TV shows that get people really excited.

EMAIL IS IT OKAY

Hey Ashley & Brad,

Need your advice or your listeners advice on a relationship issue.

A year and a half ago my best friend passed away from a sudden illness. He left behind a wife and two little girls.

I spent a lot of time with my best friend and his family for many years. We went camping, on trips and much more.

After my buddy passed away I stayed in touch with his wife and something is happening.

I’m single and have been for about 4 years and I’m having feelings for my best friends wife.

Protect Yourself!

Really Good Password

Okay we all saw what happened last week with LinkedIn and EHarmony.

And start using different passwords for each account.

 

Phew!  What a pain in the passss...word that is!  And you know the rules:

No to "God Bless the USA"

NO TO SONG

The principal of PS 90 in Coney Island, New York said the students will not be allowed to perform Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" during their kindergarten graduation ceremony for fear of offending other cultures.

Principal Greta Hawkins heard the children rehearsing one day and told teachers to drop the song, explaining, "We don't want to offend other cultures." The principal's decision has caused some disagreement among parents and other teachers.

Zero Tolerance Over Zeros

BIG FAT ZERO

Pop quiz time, parents. Did your kid actually earn the grade he got on his last test? Are you sure?

Maybe this will help you decide: a high school teacher has been suspended from his job for actually giving kids a 0 if they didn't turn in their homework or skipped a quiz.
