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!
"And you're ALIVE when it eats you"!
Oh wait, that line is from "Jurassic Park." But this is almost as scary.
Asian giant hornets are attacking China and it's no laughing matter. These uber-aggressive little thugs have now killed 42 and injured at least 1,640 others. The species, known as Vespa mandarinia, averages 2 inches in length and boasts a 2 and a half inch stinger. And, what's worse, it attacks honey bees. They go, WE go. In fact, just one of these things can kill as many as 40 honey bees. In humans, the venom is a potent neurotoxin that can cause violent allergic reactions and extreme bruising. Get bitten by one of these buggars and it looks someone attacked you with a power drill!
And it keeps getting worse. Should you run from these things, it makes them even ornerier. Let's just pray that they don't hop a "slow boat from China." (Sorry, that was too easy.)
Even though they've eradicated a bunch of hives, many remain. 206 people from the hardest hit cities, Ankang, Hanzhong and Shangluo, are still in hospitals. Of those, 37 are still in critical condition.
