  • Props to All Our Great Men

    Props to all the great men who listen to the Fox. We had a story about a grocery store in NYC that was trying to attract male customers by creating an aisle stocked with what they think men most want to buy. Our Fox men called to say that men and women both shop for groceries now and they don't need a man aisle...they shop for just about everything a woman does. One guy said he is about as manly as it gets, but he and Sweetie shop for groceries together. if you have an opinion on this either way...please email me at jharrison@1045thefox.

  • I Get Why People Decorate Early

    So, I love to decorate for every holiday and my husband more or less just puts up with it. Not his thing. I like to start early because if we are going to haul ten boxes and two trees down from the attic, I want them up for awhile and for me Christmas is over by New Year's Eve. So I am guessing that those who are critical of people who put up their lights on the Friday after Thanksgiving don't put up as much. How many boxes of stuff do you put up? Email me at jharrison@1045thefox.com

  • Product Placement at it best...or worst??

    AMC's hit zombie drama "The Walking Dead" is not known for its comedic elements but every now and again, funny things happen, intentional or otherwise. The jury is still out on whether AMC purposely aired a KFC endorsement and commercial immediately after a rather gruesome scene on Sunday's episode. In case you missed it, a swarm of ravenous zombies ripped open a man and feasted on him allowing Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang to escape unnoticed. Here's how it looked:

  • Paralyzed Dogs Walk Again With Nose Cell Transplant

    Meet Jasper, an amazing canine success story. Jasper is an English dachshund that was suffering with a spinal injury and unable to use his back legs. His owners volunteered him for a trial at Cambridge University to see whether cells from a dog's nose can improve the nerve connections in its spine. Doctors found that the olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) support nerve fiber growth connecting the nose to the brain and also regenerate nerve fibers in damaged spinal cords. After six months of walking on a treadmill, Jasper's owners say he now "whizzes around the house." Researchers hope that this might lead to advancement toward a cure for human spinal-cord injuries

  • Was Diane Sawyer Drunk During ABC’s Election Coverage?

  • Am I the Only One Who Loves Election Day?

    It's almost like Christmas eve for me as I anticipate the election results. The whole political process excites me. That appreciation was instilled in me at an early age. It started when I was in grade school. I campaigned for candidates by placing their business cards, explaining their stand various issues, in the screen doors of all our neighbors. SO long before the internet. Later I graduated to the illustrious position of posting the chalk numerals on the chalk board in the Election Commissioner's Office in front of the glare of TV cameras. Speaking of the media glare...here are celebrities and who they are backing today...http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2012/05/politics/celebrity.endorsements/index.html

  • You Probably Can't Wear The Costume Voted "World's Best"

    Josh Sundquist is well-known as a motivational speaker who recovered from his loss of a leg to cancer at age 9 to ski in the Paralympics. Today he's roundly winning the global contest for the best Halloween costume. It's inspired by the infamous leg lamp from holiday classic "A Christmas Story," which featured an ornery dad obsessed with his fringed table lamp in the shape of a leg. "I had to shave my leg, but I think it was worth it," Sundquist wrote on his Facebook page. This isn't Sundquist's first Halloween rodeo: He won similar applause after going as "Amputee Gingerbread Man" in 2010.

  • No Traffic Lights...Dream or Nightmare?

    My friend Roseann lives in Jersey. Her mom lives in a neighboring town in a care facility. Rose cannot get though on the phone to her due to Superstorm Sandy. She will drive to see her today. Alas, all the traffic lights in Hudson county are out. So, I had to ask myself. if we treated every intersection as a 4-way stop, would that save time or cost us time? Major intersections with multiple lanes would be a real pain. Do you think everyone remembers that when two cars arrive simultaneously at an intersection with no traffic light...the one on the right has the right-a-way? Shott me an email with your thoughts...jharrison@1045thefox.com
