Dave spent the last 14 years waking up Sacramento. Before that, Dave's done time in New York, Philly, Minneapolis, Denver, DC and...Is this boy on the lam or what? Now, he's shuffled down the Valley to start things up with all that great soft rock and the most fun you can have with your radio on. Turn it on first thing every day to join in. You never can tell what'll happen on this guy's show until it happens. In fact, Dave's not really sure what just happened 'til it already did. It IS very early. Just the cows and Dave up at this hour. Come on, belly up to our breakfast table. It's always a good time!
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and grew up with hippie parents that sold my brother and sister to the Gypsies and we lived in a VW Van - o.k. KIDDING! My husband Craig and I love to eat, camp, fish, eat, watch t.v., go to movies, eat, BBQ, hang out with friends, and did I say eat? We love to travel and we enjoy meeting new people and trying new things! It seems we are always trying to eat healthier and get active - I want to come to terms with fact I will never get back to my original weight - let's face it 7lbs and 6oz is not very realistic. Wake up with Dave and I and we'll have fun in the mornings and then spend your workday with me - I promise I will help make it go by faster with all of your favorite Soft Rock Music!
A new study ranks bedroom colors and how they affect your sleep and the winner is....
Seems that blue in the bedroom is the way to go for that deep deep sleep! Those with BLUE walls averaged 7 hours and 52 minutes sleep. And that's on account of the fact that blue has a CALMING effect. And not only that, the color blue triggers receptors in our eyes that aid our body's natural sleep rhythms.
Purple, conversely, is the pits. Purple bedroom sleepers only sawed their logs for 5 hours and 56 minutes. Purple is a STIMULATING color which makes it tougher for your brain to shut down. Very bad.
The ten bedroom colors, ranked from most to least sleep, are, in order, blue, yellow, green, silver, orange, red, gold, grey, brown and purple.

A whopping majority of men like girls with long hair, according to a new survey by Great Clips. 74% prefer long hair to shorter locks. And when asked to describe the top qualities of a woman with long hair, most men ranked No. 1. SEXY, No.2 FUN, No.3 YOUNG and #4. WIFE MATERIAL.
Interestingly, on the opposite side of the ledger, about the same majority (75%) of WOMEN liked guys with SHORT hair. But the most quirky response was this. Women were almost evenly split about guys with LONG hair. About half described a longhaired guy as unprofessional. The other half considered THEIR long hair boy to be adventurous of outdoorsy.
So guys! If ya grow it long, careful, it could go either way. (pic from latesthairstylesforlonghair.com)
Heading out to the Little League game this weekend? We discovered a poem that we shared on the air this morning (5/17) which expresses so much, so well.
The sun on your skin, the smell of the grass, the crack of the bat...all wonderful parts of a day at the ballpark, soaking up the excitement when your kid is playin' the game. But sometimes, some of us can go over the edge and misbehave and spoil what SHOULD be the All-American family experience. What SHOULD be a fun time can go all ugly if we forget what it's supposed to be all about.
Here's a poem which has been posted at Little League parks all over the country...
HE'S JUST A LITTLE BOY
He stands at the plate with his heart pounding fast.
The bases are loaded, the die has been cast.
Mom and Dad cannot help him, he stands all alone.
A hit at this moment would send his team home.
The ball meets the plate, he swings and he missed.
There's a groan from the crowd, with some boos and some hisses.
A thoughtless voice cries, "Strike out the bum."
Tears fill his eyes, the game's no longer fun.
So open up your heart and give him a break,
for it's moments like this, a man you can make.
Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget,
He is just a little boy, and not a man yet.
Mom, dad, have fun at the game... (Pic from wordpress.com)
Yes. It's been THAT kind of week. And you need to pamper yourself. And here are a few suggestions from a new survey to help you do just that. A few of the responses include:
Reading a book. (Don't you love setting aside a whole day of vacation, perhaps on a beach, to get into a juicy novel starting at about noon and going to sundown.)
Getting a massage. (Deep tissue for me...a little extra around the shoulders.)
A glass of nice wine. (Blow the bank on pricey bottle this weekend.)
Going out for dinner instead of cooking.
Nothing. (What a perfect Saturday. Nothing. Maybe a break for a snack...and then right back to nothing.)
Chocolate. ('Nuff said.)
A bubble bath.
Binge watching a favorite TV show. (Just talking on the radio today about not realizing that "Deadliest Catch" had started it's new season. So we DVR'd five episodes and let 'em roll back to back. Blue crab, bad language and bleeding...lots of bleeding. THIS is living!)
And, according to this survey, the #1 way to pamper yourself...
EATING A NICE DESSERT!
Come on. Pamper yourself. How about a nice piece of pie? (photo from alltheworldsfare.co.uk)
Uh-oh! Her comes another "Dirty Purse" story. Where have you had that thing? A new study says that 20% of purse handles have surfaces that are TEEMING with bacteria which are HARMFUL TO HUMAN HEALTH! Yucch!
The dirtiest thing in your purse? It's your hand lotion, which was found to carry more bacteria than the average TOILET SEAT! And lipstick and mascara came in a close dirty 2nd and 3rd.
(I'm thinking that mini-bottle of Purell has to be loaded with 10 tons of germs too, because that's the first thing you reach for after you've changed the baby, touched that shopping cart handle or squished a bug.)
Leather bags have the most bad stuff on 'em because that spongy texture provides the perfect environment for bacteria to multiply.
(Feel like you should zip into your hazmat suit before you finish this rant?)
So what do you do?
The experts say you should regularly sanitize your hands and that bag with antibacterial wipes.
Just WHERE have you had that thing? (photo from fendi-sale.com)
