Can I Make You A Drink?
Would you trust Kidd O'Shea and I to make you a drink?

Well...we were put to the test this week to help raise money for the Sojourner Family Peace Center.

He and I were guest bartenders at Rustico on Water Street and let's just say there was a reason why I started to pour only wine and Kidd made the "real drinks" - which were pretty strong I might add.

If you'd like to donate to this wondeful organiztion who helps families dealing with domestic violence, please click here.

Please help...
Every year, myself and Alley Faith from 103.7 Kiss FM co-chair teams for Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

And last night we were at the VIP kickoff event for Susan G. Komen. What a night! It was so uplifting to hear stories from women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer and how Komen has helped them. They even had a Pink candy station (photo).

Will you please find it in your heart to join The Mix team and help us fight breast cancer and find a cure as we walk on Milwaukee's lakefront on September 23rd?

Just click here.

He wants attention
Does your dog do this? Right when I sit down and get comfortable on the couch to watch my favorite show ("Bachelor Pad") my dog Gus will park his little butt right in front of me and stare.

He's so darn cute I can't ignore him, but it's like he knows my favorite show is on TV and that triggers something in his little head to come and stare at me until I play with him.

So here's a photo of who was staring at me last night :)

Which curtain?
Aaaaah, help, please! I want to change the bathroom and I can't decided which shower curtain I want to use. Both are shades of grey (get it...)

Which one do you like? Thanks!

Zip Line FUN!
Have you seen this at the Milwaukee County Zoo yet? It's the zip line and ropes course that you see right when you walk in. Well yesterday at Zoo a la carte, I tried it and it was FUN! (My husband, Aaron shot the video)

My Grandma
My Grandma passed away last year in July and one of the things my Mom gave my sisters and I were some of her old handkerchiefs.

She would always have one folded up in her purse and they were all so colorful. One of the handkerchiefs looked so cool and unique. My sister had the idea of getting it matted and framed.

Finally, after a year of having this on my "to do" list, I made it into the framing store and here is the final product!

I love it and it really adds a personal touch to my home. Miss you Grandma!

Navy Week!
Navy Week just wrapped up in Milwaukee and my husband Aaron and I were able to go on a tour of the USS Dewert.

This ship was incredible. It was so fast and extremely large. The weapons on the ship were insane. The majority of the missions that this ship goes on are to prevent drug trafficking and to stop pirates.

These men and women of our military make so many sacrifices to keep us safe to help make this world a better place. I am in awe of their courage and their ability to put their life on the line for me and my family!

Allergies BLOW!
Are your allergies bothering you? Mine were killing me. I finally went to the doctor and I had to have a breathing treatment.

I'm finally feeling better, but wow...this dry summer has been killing me!

Oak Creek
Like many of you, I was shocked and saddened when I heard about the horrific shooting in Oak Creek at the Sikh Temple. But not just as a member of the southside community, but also because I'm a wife of an Oak Creek Firefighter/Paramedic.

My husband Aaron was off that day, but one of his closest friends, Jim (also an Oak Creek Firefighter), was not off and the Temple is near Station 3 where Jim works.

Aaron received a text at 11:11am to report into the station for backup. When he left the house, I was sick to my stomach. Because at that time all of the rumors were spreading on Twitter, Facebook and the Internet that there could be hostages and even the possibility of multiple shooters.

I sat on my couch talking on my phone to family and friends who were asking about Aaron while I was glued to my TV. It was so surreal to see so many familiar places, streets and even seeing OCFD on CNN. How could this have happened in my community? Who would do this? Will the first responders be safe? What is this world coming to?

These are all questions I was aksing myself as my heart was breaking for the people directly involved in this horrible situation.

The Oak Creek police department who responded to that shooting on Sunday are heroes. Even though they probably don't want to be called that because in their eyes they were only doing their jobs, it takes a unique type of person to put their own life in danger to help save the life of someone else.

I'm proud of the men and women who were the first responders on that scene and I'm proud to be a wife of an Oak Creek firefighter.

To help the victims of the Sikh Temple shooting visit WeAreSikhs.com or call Tri City National Bank in Oak Creek at 414-761-1610.

Who is this guy?
Look what I found yesterday in my front lawn before I cut the grass - it's a naked man, well a naked doll.

I was cracking up when I saw this. He even has a drawn on "butt chin."

So what do I do with him?? Ask every neighbor kid if he belongs to them or just sit on back patio and offer him a drink?

I think I'll offer him the drink, he's kind of cute.

Now This is Scary
Like skydiving isn't scary enough. Christopher Jones was at 12,000 feet, just out of his plane, when he was paralyzed by a seizure. His instructor realized he was in trouble and flew over to him, managing to pull the emergency chute. Jones woke up at 3,000 feet and was able to control his landing. So far, the video of his plunge and rescue has had over 5 million hits. Amazing. I don't think you'd ever catch me jumping out of a plane, but if you did, and this happened, you'd probably never catch me in an elevator again.

Feel Like Living Like the Walking Dead?
If you're a fan of The Walking Dead and you've got $680,000, then Grantville, Georgia could be just the spot for you. Not the whole town - just the downtown. And the downtown is famous for its use as a set in The Walking Dead. The town's economy used to depend on textiles. That industry went away years ago. These days, the industry is tourism, as in Walking Dead tourists. The nine buildings up for sale are commercial properties, so if you've got a flair for developing - and don't mind a bunch of zombies walking around from time to time - get on eBay and make your bid!

Beware the Stoner Rabbits!
An agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration appeared before Utah's Senate last week to speak against a proposed bill that would legalize marijuana. Specifically, he's afraid that allowing marijuana to be grown in the state would hurt the environment. Why? Because rabbits and other wildlife could cultivate a taste for marijuana. In fact, he said he witnessed such behavior, in a rabbit who'd developed a taste for the herb and lost his natural instinct to run. Good to know the government's out there protecting us from stoner rabbits... Listen to Agent Fairbanks' testimony here. Some of it is flat-out hilarious.

Stolen and "Maliciously Altered"
By now, you've probably seen the picture of Cindy Crawford that was all over the internet a week or so ago. It showed Cindy in a bra and panties, wearing a hat and some sort of stole. The story that went with the photo was that it showed Cindy in all her unretouched glory - a celebration of a woman embracing her real body. Turns out the photo was actually stolen and "maliciously altered," according to Cindy's attorneys. They are threatening to sue everyone who posted the picture if they don't take it down and apologize. For the record, Cindy's husband posted this picture to Instagram to show what she really looks like.     She got flowers and I got her. Happy Valentines Day @cindycrawford A photo posted by Rande Gerber (@randegerber) on Feb 14, 2015 at 6:00pm PST And if you don't believe the picture, listen to what Christie Brinkley had to say about Cindy in an interview with Access Hollywood last week...

They Cut Meryl Streep?
Meryl Streep plays The Witch in Into the Woods, a movie that started its life as a Broadway musical written by the legendary Stephen Sondheim. Sondheim wrote a new song for the film - "She'll Be Back" - to be sung by Meryl's character. And she sang it, and it was in the movie, and then it wasn't. Director Rob Marshall says that it was for the good of the movie - that the movie was stronger without it. But not to worry. These days, nothing really gets thrown away, and the word is that the song will be included in the bonus features when the film gets its DVD release. Here's a little taste.

Dude! What's That White Stuff on the Ground?
Folks in Huntington Beach and other coastal communities in southern California had a little weather surprise yesterday. Pea-sized hail fell on the area, and for a while, coated the beaches and grassy areas with white stuff. A rare occasion, to be sure. It didn't stick around long - as you'll see from the video, it melted pretty quickly - which is certain to upset folks in the Northeast, who've been dealing with record amounts of unmeltedness this season. And as you'll see from the video, at least one enterprising Californian figured out a way to surf on it. Hail's up, dude!

Don't Believe It? Just Watch!
"Uptown Funk" is one of the hottest tunes in the country. It's one of those songs that gets your blood pumping and toes tapping. Until now. Thanks to Alex Bove and the Dancing Grandpas, "Uptown Funk" got slowed down - well, a little bit. It's called "Oldtown Cover," and everyone in the video is at least 65 years old... So some of the moves are way slower than the Bruno Mars version. Naturally.

Making the Most of Nothing
Steve Harvey has proved himself a master of making the most of some of the ridiculous moments on Family Feud. But this one from last month takes the cake. Simple question: "Other than fruit, name something you might choose by squeezing it first." But neither contestant would buzz in. Because neither one could think of an answer. And that left Steve to fill the gap while the show sort of reset itself. Watch!   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk')); Post by Family Feud 2.

Live Long and Prosper
Leonard Nimoy, best known for playing the iconic Mister Spock in a variety of Star Trek movies and TV shows, passed away on Friday at the age of 83. Four days earlier, he posted his final tweet, which sounds like he knew he was leaving... A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP — Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) February 23, 2015 Since he passed, a lot of media outlets have been posting tidbits about him and Spock. One of the more interesting is this interview from several years ago where he explained the origins of Spock's famous hand gesture that went along with the Vulcan salute, "Live Long and Prosper."

Kelly Quits the Cops
Kelly Osbourne went through with her threat to leave Fashion Police. Last week, she was pretty upset over a comment her co-host Giuliana Rancic made about Zendaya's dreadlocks that created quite a stir. She made her departure official on Friday, and instantly, her mother - Sharon Osbourne of The Talk - applauded her. .@KellyOsbourne, I am so proud of you. You can never be bought. You always wear your heart on your sleeve. #ProudToBeYourMum — Sharon Osbourne (@MrsSOsbourne) February 28, 2015 Meanwhile, Billy Bush from Access Hollywood took a few shots at Kelly before her departure, and that angered the other half of Kelly's DNA pool - her dad, rocker Ozzy Osbourne - who had a choice tweet for Billy... @BillyBush stop acting like a bitch. Act like a man. Lay off Kelly or we'll be going to hospital to get my foot out of your ass. God Bless. — Ozzy Osbourne (@OzzyOsbourne) February 27, 2015

When in Chicago...
On Sunday, thousands of people jumped into Chicago's Lake Michigan. It was time for the annual Polar Plunge, which raised close to $1 million for Special Olympics On hand were a few celebrities. Vince Vaughn, an area native, jumped in wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey. Lady Gaga showed up and took the plunge with her fiance, Taylor Kinney, one of the actors from Chicago Fire. Ironically, Gaga was covered pretty much head to toe, wearing more to take a dip in the lake than she wears to perform...     ❤️ feels so good to do things for a good cause like the Special Olympics. It's great donate money, but also great to donate a gesture of love for those who deserve to be showered with it. A photo posted by @ladygaga on Mar 1, 2015 at 9:24am PST Check out the video from The Chicago Sun-Times that includes some stills of Vince, Gaga and Taylor...

50 Shades of SNL
Dakota Johnson, star of 50 Shades of Grey, hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Her opening monologue wasn't bad. She poked fun at 50 Shades - actually took a couple of good shots at it. And interestingly, she introduced her parents - Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson - who were in the front row. Only Don spoke. Probably just as well...

Growing Scented Geraniums Indoors and Out
Add a bit of aromatherapy to your indoors with scented geraniums. Give the leaves a gentle pet and enjoy the lemon, rose, apple, peppermint or pine fragrance. Place the plants in areas where you brush by the leaves or can easily give them a pat to release and enjoy the fragrance. Though grown for the fragrant leaves, these plants will produce attractive, but less showy flowers than the popular bedding geranium. Both are truly Pelargoniums, but most gardeners know them by their common name of geranium. Grow these as houseplants in a sunny window or a sunny location outdoors during frost-free weather. Scented geraniums are hardy in zones 10 and 11 and must be moved indoors for the winter in most areas. Use a quality potting mix for indoor plantings or grow them outdoors in well-drained soil for best results. Remove the faded flowers and pinch back the stems as needed. A bit more information: Start new plants from cuttings taken from healthy plants. Take a 4-inch piece of the stem with leaves, remove any flowers, and root. Or use trimmings made when pruning back your plant. For more details, listen to my audio tip on Starting New Plants from Cuttings.
