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!
Yup! It's that time of the year when all us guys love to go all Chevy Chase, load up the roof and the lawn with light-up Christmas stuff, plug in that plug and hopefully not blow out the whole zip code.
But wait. Here's a guy with a whole new brilliant idea.
Darrel Piper of Scotland loves that the holiday season falls in the winter, because HIS Christmas lights get to serve TWO purposes. First, they get him in a festive holiday mood. And second, THEY HEAT HIS HOUSE!
Darrel hangs more than 4,000 lights INSIDE HIS HOUSE, instead of outside like the rest of us. That's because he says it looks great IN THERE to him AND it keeps him all toasty warm.
Of course, this begs the obvious question, "Does that put his electric bill through the roof?" That's exactly what his critics, also known as "smart people," are asking.
Piper has no answer but does say he keeps the yuletide lights up from September first through January and smugly declares 5 straight months of toastiness.
Mmmm. Warm glow! DaveT (picture from publicdomainpictures.net)
Time for a Dave and Teri Ann food update...
Some guy has just invented a pizza panic button, because we all know, when you need it, you need it NOW! It's called the PiePal and it actually lets you order your pie by just pushing a button. You dial the number of pizzas you want on the device, then press a giant LED-lit button. Presto. Within 30 minutes, you're pizza is delivered, piping hot, to your door.
And how about a shake with that? The Powder Room, a new bar in LA, is now selling a $500 milkshake. It includes several premium spirits, edible gold and Belgian chocolate, with a side of a pricey Swarovsky crystal ring.
But wait. Tired of waiting for your Cronut? We've got an answer for that, too. It's...
Yes, the Cronut has gone digital! Until now, the only way you could start your day with an original Cronut form the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City's trendy SoHo neighborhood, was to line up around the block. Well, now you can order these yummy goodies in advance by hitting up cronutpreorder.com, but you've still gotta wait. Orders begin next Monday (11/25), but those are for the week of December 9th. THEY'RE JUST THAT BACKED UP! And I believe you still have to pick them up? What?
Sorry, gotta go now. Hungry! DaveT (photo by publicdomainpictures.net)
Outrage is brewing over a racy Kmart commercial featuring boxer-clad men shaking their shorts to the tune of “Jingle Bells.”
The ad, to promote Joe Boxer’s holiday line of men’s underwear, starts out innocently enough — a row of bow tied men ringing bells in front of a white banquet table.
But then the table is yanked out of the way, revealing the group of men stripped down to their skivvies, jiggling their junk to the song’s bell chimes.

That's the word from Butterball, America's go-to people for Thanksgiving dinner.
We're talking big, fresh turkeys.
Butterball says that their orders for large FRESH turkeys, 16 lbs and bigger, have been cut by 50%. This is a big deal because 88% of turkeys eaten in the US on Thanksgiving are 16 pounds and up. Butterball reps say that the shortage is caused by a failure of their birds to gain appropriate weight this season. This is a little scary, especially since the company is claiming they aren't sure why their birds are staying so slim, and are investigating.
I'm thinking that the word got around in the henhouse about what happens with that axe. Ow! If I'm a bird, I'm thinkin' that I'm staying scrawny and maybe I won't get picked. Just thinkin.'
PS. If you like your turkey frozen like a brick...no problem, plenty of stock...all sizes.
PPS. If you went with the frozen turkey, consider thawing those biggest birds starting in the next few days. (IN THE FRIDGE!) Happy Thanksgiving! DaveT (photo from publicdomainpictures.net)
