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!
But it's not what you think.
Kids in Japan who are glued to their smartphones, tablets and PCs could be sent to internet "fasting" camps to help disconnect them from their online world.
The sinister sounding "Ministry of Education" estimates that some 518,000 Japanese kids between the ages of 12 and 18 are addicted to the internet. (They've got nothing on us. We're at 100%.) And they fear that the number of middle school and high school students in need of digital detox is rising.
To combat this scourge, the ministry is creating immersion programs, or "fasting" camps, designed to separate kids from their computers, handheld gaming devices and cell phones.
The camps would be held outdoors. (For you kids, "outdoors" is OUTDOORS! That's why they call it outdoors. There are trees, birds, sky and OTHER KIDS out there.) These "fasting" camps would encourage games, team sports and other activities. And psychiatrists and clinical psychotherapists would be on standby just in case and of the kids freaked out by all that reality.
For those of you who have lifted through the 70's or 80's, "fasting camp" used to be known as "camp."
And you know what's going on outside? PLAYING!
