Fashion, Flavor, Fun and PRIZES!!
I'm in heaven! I LOVE the new Yoplait Frozen Yogurt treats! Tonight for dessert, I just enjoyed their Greek Bars in Honey Caramel and I LOVE the tart and tangy taste with a sweet swirl. Plus their greek varities contain four to six grams of protein!

And that's not all, they also have their Yoplait Frozen Yogurt Original Bars too that come in cool summer flavors like Strawberry Banana and Harvest Peach and they're mixed with refreshing pieces of real fruit!

You can try some of these sweet treats with me this Thursday night at Zaffiro's Pizzeria and Bar in New Berlin at 7:30 when fashion meets flavor. That evening we'll be viewing an episode of Lifetime's Project Runway which will feature Yoplait Frozen Yogurt. You'll get an awesome swag bag and enter for a chance to win our grand prize - a $500 Visa prepaid gift card!

I Love My Team
I love my Green Bay Packers! As a shareholder, I do feel like it's "my" team :) and one of my favorite times of the year is when training camp starts!

When I lived in Green Bay, I would go to practice as many days as I could, rain or shine. This past weekend, I was up in Green Bay for their Packers 5K  on Saturday and then I was able to catch their practice on Sunday morning. Aaron Rodgers was looking good and so was our rookie running back, Jonathan Franklin from UCLA!

Below is a picture of me in front of the practice field. It should be another good season for the green and gold!

Flavor Meets Fashion
I don't know about you, but the best way to cool off on these warm summer days is with a tasty treat!

I've always enjoyed Yoplait yogurt (my Mom would pack one in my lunch for school every day), but I was thrilled to discover at the grocery store that now they have Yoplait Frozen Yogurt treats too!

It's bringing the true refrigerated yogurt experience into the frozen aisle with a unique taste and texture! And it's low in fat and a good source of calcium.

Plus, I'm a huge fan of Greek yogurt for all the protein it provides. Now Yoplait even has Yoplait Frozen Yogurt Greek varities which contain twice the amount of protein contained in regular frozen yogurt with four to six grams of protein per serving!

The treats are offered in four varieties: Original Pints, Original Bars, Greek Pints and Greek Bars.
 
Check out some of these flavors: strawberry, honey caramel, mountain blackberry, raspberry, cherry orchard and harvest peach - just to name a few!

And coming up on August 1st, flavor meets fashion when Yoplait Frozen Yogurt will be featured on an episode of  Lifetime's Project Runway. Join me for a viewing party at Zaffiro's Pizzeria and Bar in New Berlin at 7:30pm and get an awesome swag bag, enjoy Yoplait Frozen Yogurt treats and enter for a chance to win our grand prize - a $500 Visa prepaid gift card!

I hope to see you there, but before then make sure to pick up some Yoplait Frozen Yogurt at your nearest grocery store!

Smile On!
What a fun time I had last weekend at Summerfest! It's always great to see so many bands in one location, but I LOVE spending time with old friends at the Big Gig too!

This is my friend Kim and I before the Barenaked Ladies show (she's a HUGE fan)!

It's Getting Hot In Here!
Who did you see at Summerfest?

I was able to see Nelly on a side stage and thanks to Jojo I was lucky enough to get backstage and meet him!

This picture is a little dark, but it was cool to say "hi" and to tell himwhat a GREAT show he put on in Milwaukee at the Big Gig. Smile on!

Making Beer!
Have you ever been on a brewery tour? I have, but nothing beats actually making the beer yourself! I can't take complete credit for this, our buddy Jason has been making beer for years. This past 4th of July he let me help out.

I was able to add the hops and then once the beer starting boiling I was given the big spoon and started stirring (pictured). This was his American Lager - a lot of steps to follow, but very fun!

So far, SO GREAT!
3 & 1/2 months and counting since my family and I packed up our stuff in NJ and made the trek to Milwaukee! Anytime you leave what you've "known" for years and years, you always worry that: It won't work It's not a great fit It'll take a LONG time to FIT IN Well, I'm here to say that all of those answers couldn't be farther from the truth! From DAY 1, my radio family here at The Mix has welcomed my family and I with OPEN ARMS (My favorite JOURNEY song btw) and it's like we've known each other forever! At the same time, my new family of radio listeners (ALL OF YOU reading this right now) have also made me so incredibly comfortable and happy and as stated above, it's like I've known you well, longer than the 3.5 months I've been here! You've helped my family and I find a place to live, great restaurants (my family and I love to eat), great places to visit to entertain my kids, a travel baseball team for my oldest son Anthony and of course, great karaoke so I can get my sing on! I will continue to ask for your advice on different things along the way and I know WITHOUT A DOUBT, you'll be there to answer whatever questions my family and I have! For that, I'm very grateful! Just wanted to take a few minutes to say THANK YOU for welcoming Me, my wife Sarah, and children Anthony and Benjamin with such warmth and kindness! We look forward to being a part of the community for a long time to come! Thank you for listening to 99.1 The Mix! I'm havin' a BLAST! Hope YOU are too! Sincerely, Mark Summers

Brown Needles and Leaves on Evergreens
A walk through your garden this spring may reveal browning on both needled and broadleaf evergreen trees and shrubs. Winter winds and sun, exposure to deicing salt and record low temperatures are likely the cause. Evergreens continue to lose moisture through their leaves and needles throughout the winter. The winter sun and wind increase moisture loss. Those gardening in areas with frozen soil are likely to see the most damage. But even those in warmer regions may see winter scorch on newly planted or exposed evergreen plants. We can't turn the needles and leaves green, but we can provide proper care to speed recovery. If the branches are pliable and buds plump you should see new growth this spring. Broadleaf evergreens will replace the brown leaves with fresh new growth. Brown needles will eventually drop and the new growth this spring may mask the damage. Wait for warmer weather to see what if any new growth appears. A bit more information: Once plants have started to show signs of new growth, you have a decision to make. Is the plant healthy and attractive enough to nurture and keep? Or, would you be better off starting with a new plant and one better suited to the growing conditions. A difficult decision, but one that can save you time, money and frustration in the long run.

A Multi-Season Beauty – The Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus)
Add seasonal interest and bird appeal to your landscape with the white fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus). This slow growing small-scale tree can grow up to 20 feet tall and wide. The slightly fragrant white flowers cover the plant in spring. The male plants produce slightly larger and showier flowers, but the female plants produce an abundance of blue fruit in late summer. Though the fruit is somewhat hidden by the leaves, the birds seem to have no problem finding and devouring it. But don't worry however as they won't leave behind a mess. The fall color can vary from a good yellow to a yellowish green. And the smooth gray bark become ridged and furrowed with age. Fringetree is hardy in zones 4 to 9, grows well in full sun to part shade and though it prefers moist fertile soil, it is adaptable to a much wider range of conditions. It can be found in nature growing along stream banks and the woodland edge. A bit more information: Use fringetree as a small tree or large shrub, as a specimen plant, near buildings, or in mixed borders as an understory. And be patient in spring as it is late to leaf out.

Daisy – the April Birth Flower
Celebrate April birthdays with a bouquet of daisies. This April birth flower symbolizes childhood innocence or according to the Farmer's Almanac they were given between friends to keep a secret. Many flowers share the common name daisy. It comes from the English name "days eye" referring to the fact many daisy flowers open during the day and close as the sun sets. Bellis perennis, known as English daisy, is most often designated as the April birth flower. It is hardy in zones 4 to 8, grows about 6 inches tall and flowers from spring through mid summer. You will find this plant listed as an attractive perennial or nasty weed. In the south the plants often burn out after flowering during the heat of summer. In cooler climates they are often dug after flowering to maximize enjoyment and minimize spread. The young leaves can be eaten in salads or cooked. A bit more information: Sweet peas are also considered the April birth flower. This is especially true in April. This flower represents modesty and simplicity.

Garden Longer with Less Aches and Pains – It’s National Garden Week
Avoid sore and strained muscles that often arise after a long day in the garden. A few simple changes in your gardening habits can keep you gardening longer and with fewer aches, pains and strains. Use long-handled tools to extend your reach and minimize bending and stooping. And if you need to get a bit closer to the ground, try placing only one knee on the ground or using a stool and keep your back straight. Keep your tools handy by wearing a carpenter's apron with lots of pockets or using a tool caddy. An old wagon, wheeled golf bag or trash can make moving long-handled tools a breeze. Use foam or wrap your tool handles with tape to enlarge the grip and reduce hand fatigue. Or better yet, invest in ergonomically designed tools with larger cushioned grips. They are designed to position your body in a less stressful position, allowing you to work longer. A bit more information: Further extend your energy by taking frequent breaks. Use sunscreen, wear a hat and drink lots of water. For more ideas, check out my 10 Pain-free Gardening tips. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Celebrate National Dandelion Day – It’s not just a weed
Stop, don't pull those pesky yellow flowered dandelions popping up in the lawn and garden. These beautiful flowers have not only been used as bouquets for mom and crowns for children, but have a long medicinal and edible history. On April 5th, Dandelion Day, celebrate the benefits and beauty of this perennial plant many consider a weed. You'll find this adaptable plant growing in a wide variety of locations. The name dandelion comes from the French "dent de lion" meaning lion's tooth. This refers to the leaves with their jagged tooth-like edges. Dandelions are high in Vitamins A, B, C and D and were used by Native Americans for kidney disease, swelling and skin problems. Harvest the young leaves in spring and add them to a salad or sauté with onions. Brighten up a salad with just the yellow portion of the flowers or ferment them into wine. A bit more information: Dandelions are also known as 'wet-the-bed'. This refers to the old belief that just touching a dandelion can cause bed-wetting. This may be tied to the fact that dandelions have been used as a diuretic. For more gardening tips, how-to videos, podcasts and more, visit www.melindamyers.com

Celebrate National Celery Month - Grow Your Own Celery Indoors or Out
Celery, an unassuming vegetable has long been used as a flavorful ingredient in soups, stews and casseroles. You'll also find it fresh on a relish tray or as a crunchy low calorie snack. Its value is being recognized and celebrated during April, National Celery Month. This long season vegetable is difficult to grow in many areas. The plants are slow to germinate and the young transplants will bolt if subject to cool periods. Grow celery in full sun with moist organic soil. Provide ample moisture and mulch to keep the soil moist throughout the season. Wrap or cover the stalks two weeks before harvest to blanch the stems for a milder flavor. Or have a bit of fun and grow some celery from kitchen discards. Next time you chop up a bunch of celery for soup or stew, save the base and grow a new plant. A bit more information: It's easy to grow your own celery from kitchen discards. Save the base of the celery in a shallow dish of water or bury the bottom half in a well-drained potting mix to root. Set in a bright location. Keep water in the saucer or the soil mix moist until new growth appears. Pot up and move to a sunny location.
