  • Should Kansans Be Able to Buy Wine at Grocery Stores?

    An organization called "Uncork Kansas" will testify before will testify before the Kansas House Committee on Commerce, Labor and Economic Development and express their desire to see wine, as well as non-alcoholic items like mixers sold in grocery stores. The bill in committee in support of these efforts is HB 2206. How do you feel about it? Supporters include thousands of consumers, Kansas Chamber of Commerce, The Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce, The Kansas Food Dealers Association, as well as various Grocery associations and others. How do you feel about the idea? Shoot me an email at jharrison@jrn.com

  • Would you Sail On The Titanic?

    A billionaire in Australia is recreating the original Titanic. It should be ready to board in 2016. How would you feel about sailing on it I have seen the photos of what it is to look like (as much like the real thing as possible) and it is clearly not modern. The swimming pool is particularly small and odd by today's standards. I can't decide it the whole thing is really creepy or cool. I love history, but something about sailing on the Titanic II is wierd. It's not that I think that it would sink, its more a feeling of claustraphobia that comes over me when I think of being at sea on the thing. I wonder if they will sail the North Atlantic in April on their maiden voyage. If it were free would you sail on the Titanic II? let me know at jharrison@1045thefox.com.

  • Here's The Great Salute to Boobs From the Oscars

    I loved the song, "We Saw Your Boobs" from last night's Oscars because I love it when clever wording comes together in song and I found the topic very funny. The expressions of the featured ladies were taken from other appearances, I think it would've been better to get shots with their actual reaction. Did you like the song too? Shoot me an email at jharrison@1045thefox.com. Thanks!

  • Is it Wrong to Listen to Christmas Songs in February?

    So, I happen to love several songs that are usually only played at Christmas, even though they are really "winter" songs. Case in point, "Marshmallow World"...I only like it if Dean Martin is singing. Also on the album of his that I have are, Sleigh Ride, Let it Snow, & Walking in A Winter Wonderland"...I like to drive in the snow to those and enjoy how pretty it is..sort of a Christmas "Do-Over"...especially when we did not get a white Christmas. I can be so nerdy. What nerrdy thing do you do? Email me at jharrison@1045thefox.com

  • You Gave Your 16 Year-old What?

    A mom in Gansevoort, New York must've realized he was too young for Chucky Cheese and apparently could not afford to give him a car, so she gave her 16 year-old a party at a local bowling alley..perfectly normal until she sent him two stripper too! Of course, there were tweets, posts and pictures...including one of a guest seated in a chair with a bra and thong clad stripper upside down on top of him. Some of the guests were as young as 13. Now the mom is charged with 5 counts of endangering the welfare of a child...What do you make of all this? Shoot me an email, jharrison@1045thefox.com~ Jan

  • No Pressure, It's just a World Record Attempt!

    Phil and I are honored to be participating in an event to feed the hungry both here and in Haiti. It happens to be an attempt to break the world's record for number of meals packaged in an hour. While all the volunteers are arriving tomorrow, we have to entertain them along with Mark and Kara from KWCH 12. Only problem...were we to go over time in our entertainment portion and training be incomplete...we could screw-up the whole thing! No pressure!

  • Stranded on A Ship? Yuk

    Okay,, there may be worse things than being stranded on a ship, but still I really feel for passengers on the Carnival Triumph which has been adrfit since a fire on Sunday. No hot food, no hot water, no air conditioning. People are dragging mattressess to cooler areas than their cabins...so many are sleeping on the decks. A tug boat is coming to the rescue...hopes to arrive on Thursday and they will be towed to Mobile, AL. This is a change in plans as they were suppose to be towed to Progreso, Mexico tomorrow. At least some of the toilets on the ship are working now...they had been using bags that they had to turn in to the stewards. I have been on the Triumph. It's a nice ship. Sorry it's not so nice right now. Phil says he'd be fine with all of it since they are refunding...seriously, Phil? Let me know what you think at jharrison@1045thefox.com

  • I know Charlie Sheen's Heart is in the Right Place, But

    So Charile Sheen is asking rogue former LAPD officer and Chris Dorner to get with him to come up with a plan to end his time on the run. I get charlie is trying to help, I just hope law enforcement invited him to help, which seems unlikely. If I were LE looking for civilian help in capturing a suspected killer and former cop with a rambling manifesto, Charlie would seem an unlikely helper. What do you think?

  • The Best Big Game Commercials Are Unpredictable

    I have a favorite commercial from last night. It's one that scored will with most viewers, but it is my favorite...the kid who's dad let's him borrow the Audi. I liked the lack of sickeningly sweet predicability. Did you have a favorite that is not necessarily anyone else's favorite? email me at jharrison@1045thefox.com.

  • Let's call it Wichichili?

    I am sure that the winner of the chili competition today will be someone who uses a Manning-Clampitt Chili brick. I know they've won multiple times and I have only won once...without the brick. Manning-Clampitt is a local company and I have noticed on line that many people rave about the Manning-Clampitt chili brick...one woman from Oklahoma was bragging to people in Wisconsin that she is lucky enough to be able to come to Wichita and get it. If you've never had it, and want to sample it...get a bowl of chili at NuWay...delightful for over 80 years...I am pretty sure they use Manning-Clampitt. Maybe next year I'll just order up a doz bowls of Nuway chili and toss it in the crockpot...If you can't beat 'em, join 'em and let's do call it "Wichichili".

  • Would you Like a Bike Path between SE Wichita and Derby?

    Sedgwick County is supporting an application to the state for federal funding for a bike path between Derby and SE Wichita. Sounds safer than riding down K-15. It will probably be aviation themed,are you in? If you have a comments about the proposed bike path...please Email me at jharrison@1045thefox.

  • Happy Birthday, Kansas!

    Today our state turns 152! Proud our state came into the union as a free state, and survived Quantill's raiders in 1863. Kansas history is actually pretty interesting. When I see a Confederate flag on a vehicle here, I wonder if they know their Kansas history... Including the attack in Lawrence by Quantrill's raiders that killed 150 men and boys and burned one-fourth of the town.

  • Do You Have the Best Chili Recipe?

    The Chili Cook-off here at work is February 1st and Phil and I are looking for a recipe that can make us winners. To be honest, I haven't won this contest in a long time and I am eager to win. We will have a local celebrity judge in to make the call. If you have what you think is the best recipe, please email us jharrison@1045thefox.com. If we use your recipe and win...we'll supply you with all the ingredients to make your own batch!

  • Why Are Nibs So Hard to Find?

    I have been looking for cherry NIBS for my husband for part of his Valentine's Day gift. You can find Twizzler's cherry, even bit sized Twizzler's in cherry, everywhere but NIBS are available only at a few truck stops....I don't mind travelling to a truck stop if someone knows of a specfic one that carries Cherry NIBS. Please let me know at jharrison@1045thefox.com

  • Katherine Webb Is Now a "Star"?

    AJ McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb was unknown until she was seen on National TV cheering on her boyfriend . Now ABC wants to feature her in a "Celebrity Diving" reality show along with stars like Ndamukong Suh, Keisha Knight-Pulliam. Show premieres March 19th. Will you watch?

  • So Now I Am Going With The 49ers

    It's been difficult attaching myself to team in the big game, as I was a fan of Denver and KC was in no way a possibility for post-season play, and then of Atlanta for the sake of Tony G....now I am going for SF, frankly because I think they will win and it is time a West coast team won. Any comments? jharrison@1045thefox.com

  • I So Want Tony Gonzalez to Win

    See it's not about the Atlanta Falcons for me...its about Tony Gonzalez. Usually the Big game is no big deal for me, because the teams I have any allegiance to are never in the Championship game. However, I think a great deal of Tony Gonzalez...so I am cheering for Atlanta...if you have your windows open you just might hear me!

  • Was T'eo Embarrassed to Admit He was Duped?

    Manti T'eo says he thought he was having a significant relationship with a woman on line for years, but never met her. Then he says he believed she died on the same day as his grandmother. Seems like he was very trusting and able to "smell a rat". Maybe he was indeed a victim in this and did figure it out, but by then he felt he was in too deep to pull the plug on the story. I feel for him if that is the case. It appears he was forced to come clean when a journalist noted he could find no obituary for the girlfriend. It will be interesting to see what comes out when the person who apparently created the twitter account for the non-existent girlfriend makes a statement today. I suspect I will have harsh feelings for that person. What a manipulator! Phil and I will have more on this!

  • Do You Ever Wonder, What If?

    There was a time when I was fearless, never doubting that my choices were the right ones. Now, as I reflect on some past decisions I wonder about the "road not taken". Does anyone else do this? Let me know at jharrison@1045thefox.com
