TODAY IS…

Take A Hike Day — Doctors say walking is the most important part of a healthy life! If you could manage to take 10,000 steps a day — and you’re most likely taking 5,000 steps already — you will lower your blood pressure and significantly improve your overall health. And get this — if you take a brisk 30-minute walk several times a week and your memory will improve even as you get older. Regular cardiovascular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight actually reduce the amount of brain tissue that is lost as we age. And losing less tissue may mean keeping more memories.

Have a Great Day Mother Lode!

More talk about Taylor Swift’s Entertainer of the Year win last week.  This time from country great Randy Travis.

RANDY TRAVIS has expressed mixed feelings about TAYLOR SWIFT’s Entertainer of the Year win, telling People magazine, “As a writer, she is a phenomenal talent. When you look at the body of work that she has written at the age when she came into this business, it’s remarkable. It really is. But do I think that Entertainer of the Year might have been a little early? In my opinion, yes, for whatever that’s worth.”

… Age isn’t a factor to the Country Music Association and Taylor more than accomplished the minimum requirements that are to be considered when choosing Entertainer of the Year. According to the CMA: “This award is for the act displaying the greatest competence in all aspects of the entertainment field. Voter should give consideration not only to recorded performance, but also to the in-person performance, staging, public acceptance, attitude, leadership, and overall contribution to the Country Music image.

… Is she really too young? Tatum O’Neal won an Oscar at the age of ten. Anna Paquin won an Oscar at age 11. LEANN RIMES won the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Female Vocalist trophy age 14. She also won Grammies at age 14. And speaking of 19-year-old artists, these women won Grammys at that age: Christina Aguilera; Joss Stone and Rihanna.

Okay, now your turn…Do you think Taylor was too young to win this award?  Log in and leave your comment!

The Mystery Word of The Day is “Cocoa” Be the 3rd caller at 532-9350 when you hear the word in the 7am hour be a winner!  Have a great Monday and thanks for listening to the Cabin!

SPACE SHUTTLE LIFTOFF TODAY _ NASA has cleared space shuttle Atlantis for liftoff today (Monday, 2:28pm EST) on a trip to stock up the International Space Station with several years’ worth of spare parts. Atlantis will deliver nearly 30,000 pounds of pumps, storage tanks, gyroscopes and other spare parts, along with six astronauts who will unload everything. The goal is to take up as many large parts as possible, to keep the space station running for five to 10 years after the shuttle program ends next fall. Some of the pieces are too big to fit in any other spacecraft.

… Only six shuttle missions remain, including this one.
