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!

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.

Now…back to the show!

It’s “Friday the 13th, consider yourself warned — It’s bad luck to:

  • Begin a new job or a trip
  • Cut off both ends of a loaf of bread
  • Flip your mattress
  • Put new shoes on the table
  • Leave your hat on the bed
  • Walk under a ladder
  • Pour water on a windowsill
  • Plant potatoes
  • Lean a broom on a bed
  • Open an umbrella indoors
  • Do housework
  • Wear new clothes
  • Cut your hair
  • Sneeze to your left side
  • Have a black cat cross your path

It’s good luck to:

  • Cut your finger nails on a Friday to avoid a toothache during the month.
  • Take candy to a friend during your first visit of the New Year.
  • Pick the first violets of spring.
  • When you set the table, place the salt down first.
  • If you drop a spoon, expect friends to drop by soon.
  • If your left hand itches, money will come to you.
  • When you move to a new house, take a broom and a loaf of bread with you.
  • Put a red bow on a newborn baby.
  • Don’t sweep dust out the front door or you’ll sweep away good luck.
  • Make a wish when you see the first robin of spring. If it doesn’t fly away before you finish wishing it’ll come true.

This is 2009’s third Friday the 13th.

The next instance of three in one year will happen in 2015.

Next year, 2010, we’ll have just one Friday the 13th — in August.

In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve signs of the zodiac, twelve hours of the clock, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve Apostles of Jesus, twelve gods of Olympus, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table will result in the death of one of the diners.

The Mystery Word of the day is “Delicious”.  Be the 3rd caller when you hear the word to win a trip to the prize den!

Have a great weekend and Good Luck!

Weird Cold Remedies

WEIRD COLD REMEDIES!

CURING A SINUS HEADACHE WITH ELECTRIC EELS — The ancient Greeks believed that an aching head could be cured with a shock from an electric eel.

CURE A FEVER WITH THE OL’ ONION FOOT — In Canada and the US, some believe that placing onions on a child’s feet will draw a fever out of the body.

CURING COLD SORES WITH EAR WAX — Some North Americans believe that cold sores can be cured by applying your own ear wax to them.

CURE A COUGH BY GREASING UP YOUR FEET — Another bizarre North American folk cure for a cough involves greasing up your feet in Vick’s Vapo Rub then throwing on a pair of thick socks. Of course, Vicks does not endorse this method.

CURE MALARIA AND ARACHNOPHOBIA AT THE SAME TIME — In the UK, tablets of compressed spider’s webs were used to cure Malaria. In some cases, patients were told to eat the actual spider while it was alive!
