  • Could He Win the Heisman?

    The Bleacher Report has a running feature on who will win the varies as the weeks roll by, but this week, they have Collin Klein listed as the 4th of the 5 current possibilities for the Heisman...I confess I think a lot would have to go wrong in West Virginia before Collin would win, but I hope I am wrong. In any event, it's a great position for Collin to be in. Go Cats!

  • Roger Are You Listening?

    The issues with the REAL referees needs to be resolved! How much does the NFL make? How much do they pay players? Treat the real refs fairly and end the problems with current officiating. Turns out the job of a referee is not everyone can do. For the record, I also feel badly for the refs filling in. They are in way over their heads and I know it isn't fun to be constantly ridiculed.

  • I did it because I was Sleepy!

    I am one of the many, many people who do not get enough sleep, and now that the Jan and Phil show starts at 5:00, I am trying to figure out a way to get to sleep even earlier. Reading in bed helps, but surely there are other ways. My doctor says I am a late "spiker" as we all have times of days when we get energy "spikes" (my terminology not his) and my last one is around 7pm...later than most people's...if you have a way of getting to sleep when you are not sleepy...please let me know.

  • Strange Sounds Continue at Our House

    I promise this is not about Halloween being a month away! As I mentioned previously, strange sounds have been occurring in our house. Sounds of people running on the stairs...sounds of a large, soft object being dropped and dragged, sounds of a non-existent box falling over in the basement and now sounds of a metal crowbar being wielded outside our house...anyone know a medium who conducts seances?

  • Starbucks Diet? Hmmmm or mmmmm?

    So a lady says she lost 80 pounds in two years by eating nothing but Starbucks food. She had their coffee and oatmeal for breakfast, a fruit based boxed lunch, and a pannini for dinner. She chose Starbucks because at the time it was the closest restaurant to her home and work that published their calories. Maybe a person could trade off...Starbucks/Subway...I have to wonder if in those two years she ever cheated with white mocha shots or banana walnut bread!

  • Anybody want to Debate the "Pure Water Wichita" Folks?

    The "do flouride"/ "don't flouride" the water camps are wanting to debate. However, it appears the anti-flouride folks (Pure Water Wichita) want to debate someone other than the pro-flouride folks (Wichitans for Healthy Teeth). Apparently Pure Water Wichita did not like the terms for the debate preferred by Wichitans for Healthy Teeth. If you feel strongly about going ahead with flouridation...let purewaterwichita@gmail know you want to debate them on TV.

  • If You Can't Beat "Em, Join "Em

    So, I am NOT a fan of the Honey Boo Boo show (whatever its called) and I cannot figure out how TLC can still call themselves "the learning channel" with programming like Honey Boo Boo. That said, I did stumble across the Honey boo Boo "name changer" and from now on I will occasionally be known as, Jinxy Honey. I guess its what the people want, however don't expect my grammar to change...I can't go there.

  • Patriot Day

    Today is Patriot Day, and we choose each Patriot Day to remember 9/11 by giving cars to veterans in need through Cars4Heroes. Today it was our privilege to give three veterans reliable transportation so they can continue to make progress towards their own dreams. They certainly deserve that.

  • Hope This is Not a Re-run

    Authorities in New Orleans are saying the levees will hold. I am very concerned, especially for poor people who will have a more difficult time evacuating. I am also concerned for pets. I so hope a category one hurricane means much less threat of death and severe destruction.

  • The re-design of the Backyard Continues

    Well, my husband has a bad back and needs a hot tub, so we bought one. Now it's in our garage, empty, not even plugged in. You see the hot tub sale was going to end and we had to have it delivered despite the fact we were not quite ready. Now the fun begins, because we need a new fence, a concrete pad, wiring and an upgrade to the electrical system, to make it 200 amp service. Cha Ching. Maybe I should have just paid for a massage a week for the next ten years. Anyone know what an electrcial upgrade to 200 amp service costs? Email me at if you have any idea. Thanks!

  • I was on Nightmare Next Door...

    Recently, I sat down to watch Nightmare Next Door...I'd recorded several episodes and saw that it had happened in Kansas so I chose to watch that episode. This was the first time in months, maybe years, that I had recorded that show. Once I selected the Kansas episode I saw that is it was set in Wichita and immediately began looking for landmarks. Saw a lot of our town and the great people here in that show, very sad crime though. Ultimately, Detectives Otis and Gouge go to lunch at a "diner". I studied the diner scene to see which diner it was amd saw the familiar Riverside Cafe logo. Then I discovered something else...and here it is:

  • Is That MJ?

    A guy in Chicago is trying to sell his car windshield with bird poop on it. Seems the bird poop creates a portrait of Michael least the "pooped on windshield's owner" thinks so! I am not seeing it!

  • Please Be Aware that Pets Can be Anywhere

    My husband is the "Lost Puppy Whisperer". but, sadly, Kent came upon a puppy laying in the street yesterday. A tiny Chihuahua whose owner had left him in the care of a friend and somehow he slipped away and into the path of a car driven by someone who failed to notice they had hit him or failed to care. The puppy was still alive and although Kent offered to drive the puppy sitter and the pup to the emergency vet, the puppysitter and a friend took off for the vet alone. Now Kent is wondering if the puppy survived. Please watch for animals as well as pedestrians and motorcyclists.

  • Stephanie and Kobe? Inappropriate? Surely not!

    So I went on record as saying Michael Phelps should have spent more time with Stephanie RIce. The beautiful Australian swimmer was once a girlfriend of his. So this morning I find out that one of Stephanie's fellow countrywomen is accusing Stephanie of having an inappropriate relationship with Kobbe Bryant. She offers no proof, the photos of the Stephanie and Kobbe don't look inappropriate to me and I am not beleving least not yet.

  • Who Can Michael Phelps Trust?

    Michael Phelps revealed in an interview with Bob Costas that he is going to work on his golf game now that he's through with competitive swimming. I started wondering if he would settle down with one woman and who. Here are the women that Michael has romanced in the past and his reported current flame. Not that you can judge a book by its cover...but if you're rich and famous and your new girlfriend has spent the last year flying around on private jets with a bunch of her girlfriends and other rich athletes, maybe she has a type. In any event, here is a gallery of women Michael has considered or in some cases was considered by.

  • I like guns...but everyone with one in a holster? Hmmm...

    Not everyone is cut out to be armed. I am wondering what type of permit will be required for open carry? Is it a good idea? Is it no more dangerous, in practical terms, than concealed carry? What are your thoughts? Email me at

  • Some Days Have A Surprise Inside

    Do you know what I mean when I say sometimes something fun and totally unexpected happens on what's supposed to be a regular kind of day? Last Friday was that kind of day. I love "murder TV" and last week I decided to start recording "Nightmare Next Door". It consists of stories of murder in small town America. I scanned the list of 5 recordings and found one that talked about a murder in Kansas, so i naturally wanted to check it out. The "small town" featured was Wichita. The narrator stretched the truth a bit to make Wichita seem smaller (they did the same thing with Tulsa)but still, the Wichitans interviewed all made me proud. Everyone was smart, articulate and kind. I was loving the show...then things got even better. They went to a local cafe. As I was trying to figure out which "diner" it was (their words) i saw a familiar was a cafe I have gone to since childhood! One where Phil and I years ago autographed two menus...wouldn't you know it ...Detective Kelly Otis was holding a menu and as I studied the menu in search of the "diner's" logo..I found not only the logo...I clearly saw my signature! I am somebody now! I'm on the Investigation Discovery network!~Jan

  • A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way

    If I liked vegetables more, I would stop eating meat. I am not telling anyone else they should do that, but for me animals are a joy and I hate to see them killed for me. I was delighted to learn the story of Don MacKenzie who went to a Seafood Restaurant in Niantic, Connecticut and liked what he saw in the lobster tank. He liked it so much, he bought it. Not to eat it, to free it! Don says the lobster had to be 80 years old and had seen much and he was not going to let it end this way for the lobster he named "Larry". Don bought Larry and took him on a boat ride to Long Island Sound. He let Larry go in an area where it would be tough for a fisherman to catch him again. Props to Don, for the kindness in his heart and the courage to buy the lobster and risk ridicule by ordering it "live, to go".

  • Flossing Your Teeth While Driving?

    There is a driver somewhere in Wichita who may be able to avoid tooth decay, let's hope she can avoid the other drivers. Thanks to listener, Don, who phoned the other day to say there was a woman driving in this town at highway speed while using her knees to navigate and her hands to floss her teeth. Really? I mean sure flossing can help avoid heart attacks...except of the those suffered by the people who see you driving like that. Deliberately driving badly is a very selfish act.

  • I worry about People and Animals in this Extreme Heat

    Roofers and other folks outdoors...I worry about you in the heat. I know you know what to do and you probably do hydrate all the time and wear hats and sunscreen, etc. But it still has to be tough doing an already hard job out in this heat. Pets are a concern too.
