It’s Monday, You Should Stay Home

Good Morning Mother Lode!

Are you having one of those days where you feel fine? You know, physically and mentally, everything is in good shape, but for whatever reason, you don’t feel like going to work?

You’re in luck, because it is Stay at Home Because You’re Well Day, which is surprisingly self-explanatory. It’s a day that will be particularly appreciated by people who played hookie in their younger days (that is, they felt fine, but skipped school anyway). Ah, the memories.

Now, I am not advocating skipping work. No, this is a day about being honest. Call your place of work and say “I need the day off, because I’m feeling really well.” Your employers will be so appreciative of your blatant honesty that they will fully support your glorified mental health day.If you do decide to go to work  today, well let’s get busy!   Join us this morning at 5:30 as we get your day going with traffic and weather with more fun and music!

Have a great Monday!

Let’s Say Thanks


Let’s Say Thanks to our service men and women this holiday.  Let them know what they’re doing makes a huge difference in all of our lives and that we appreciate them greatly.


If you go to this web site you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will
print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in
You can’t pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!
It is FREE and it only takes a second.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these?
Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to
we are behind them.


I’m adding this story because I have friends and family that own and drive Toyota’s and I want all of you safe this holiday season.  Big Recall Info below

TOYOTA TO RECONFIGURE GAS PEDALS _ Gas pedals will be reconfigured or replaced on 3.8 million Toyota and Lexus models recalled in late September because of runaway acceleration. The company initially blamed the problem on faulty floor mats. Dealers will begin the work in January “to address the risk of floor mat entrapment.”

… The recall affects the 2007-2010 Toyota Camry, the 2004-2009 Toyota Prius, the 2005-2010 Toyota Avalon, the 2005-2010 Tacoma, the 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra, the 2007-2010 Lexus ES 350 and the 2006-2010 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350.

… The initial, voluntary recall was prompted by the deaths of an off- duty California Highway Patrol officer, his wife, their daughter and his brother-in-law. Their 2009 Lexus ES 350 sped out of control, crashed through an embankment and burned.
