  • William Shatner and the Art of Deep Frying a Thanksgiving Turkey

    Thanksgiving is coming up and for many that means deep frying a turkey. For many, just not me. I love deep fried turkey, tender, moist...delicious however I'm not a big fan of injury by fire, one must be careful when deep frying a turkey and I would surely f*** it up.

  • Critters

    Critters took up residence in our ceiling here at the Fox months ago and seem now to have left on their own. Maybe they came to my house, sensing my animal loving nature. Now my husband if there is an easy way to get them out of the soffit...they chewed their way in and they are digging the accomodations. Any great ideas on coaxing them out?

  • Thanks Veterans!

    Tomorrow will be a big day for many of us. Hundreds of us have bought personalized bricks for the World War II Memorial in Veteran's park. Tomorrow at 11AM we will get to see them during the dedication of the memorial. Look forward to seeing many Fox listeners there. Meanwhile, if your loved one has a brick there let us know and if you see SSGT James B. Harrison's name there, please know I loved him and he loved Wichita and the USA. He was a fabulous person and a credit to the Army Air Corps in which he served.

  • Lunch with My Husband's Ex

    Went to lunch with my husband's ex-wife today. Just wanted to check-in with her as time goes by since we suffered the second loss of a daughter. She is a very nice person and I will always be so grateful to her for sharing her phenomenal daughters with me and for calling me a "class act". She is a gem. They girls are no longer with us, but what a joy they were. I was so fortunate to be their step-mom and to have a nice relationship with their mom and their step-dad.

  • The Psychic's Report

    So the Psychic provided me with a mystery, but I did not get a rock. There are 10 immediate family members I would like to have gotten some kind, any kind of iron-clad verification from... .a pet name, a family story, anything but I can't say that I did. I was told that I am an old soul with 1956 angels guardians around me as well as my parents and Grandmothers. In additon, the psychic reported there is also a man who was born in 1962 and died in an accident in 1985 who was a smoker who is around me. All I know is that he was a smoker. Doesn't sound like anyone I know of, perhaps it is a listener. Let me know if the description is familiar!

  • So, If I'm on My Way To See a Psychic and the Plane Crashes...

    I am off to see the psychic. She is supposed to be really good...but when it comes to psychics, and a group of people...I am the one that gets left out...Lucy says, "I got a Snickers", Linus says, "I got some gum."...I'm charlie Brown and I have to say, "I got a rock". At a seance back when the morning show went to a haunted venue every Halloween... a psychic said my dad was coming through with one word.."Pumpkin" . Well, I did have a favorite horse named "Punkins" and my dad and I bonded over horses, but seriously would that be all my dad would say to me? let's just say I am hoping not to "get a rock" this time.

  • Off To See The Psychic

    I do not go to psychics, but after years of hearing about the bizarre but wonderful information presented by a psychic in Minneappolis, I am off to investigate. This psychic was able to tell my friend some very interesting things gleaned from people who had passed over. My guess is she will make no contacts with anyone who has gone before (and that's darn near everyone in my family )and her information will be so generic as to be worthless. I imagine I will be like the kid who says "I got a rock". Everyone in our group of women who are going will have dead relatives directing them to buried treasure and I will be like Charlie Brown on Halloween. I will report back as to my experience.

  • The Garage Clean-out is A Success

    Well, as some predicted (thank you Johnny maze) the secret garage clean-up was a huge hit with my husband. He said he was happy about it when he saw it, but today he phoned me at work to tell me so again, saying he was in shock initally and wanted me to know how much he appreciated my hard work and that he was thrilled with the result...even noticed the garage got swept out too!

  • Hope My Husband Does Not Divorce Me For This

    We have lived in our house six years and in that entire time I have not been able to get my car in the garage. That means that while my husband's truck is safely ensconced in the garage I stand scraping the ice off my windshield at 5:00 in the morning. We talk about cleaning out the other half of the garage, but never do it. It's the spot where "stuff" landed when we moved in. Kent says most of it is mine and I am going to run with that theory as my defense when I clean out the garage in his absence Saturday morning. I know he is leaving the house early and won't return until late. He is working out of town that day. I am bringing in a crew and we will get it done. None of his stuff will be discarded, unless it has become really gnarley in the past six years... I will let you Monday how it turns out!

  • It's Tom Pettys Birthday

    10/20/11 Tom Petty is 61 today!

  • A Phone that talks weird!

    Remember when you thought getting a Trim Line or Princess phone was pretty cool? We could never have imagined what was to come. Now I have a smart phone that makes jokes! Seriously?! Yes, it does. I asked it, "What's the Meaning for Life?" and it replied in a deadpan voice, "A Movie". She's here all fact she's here at least 24 months...she cost too much to ask her to leave. And besides, my fingers get so tired having to scroll for numbers and she will just connect me whenever I ask and she loveds to type my texts. I am getting too spoiled.

  • Has Anyone Ever Had a Ghost in their Own Home?

    I do not believe our own house is haunted. However, a dear friend and neighbor of mine has experienced several weird phenonmena at her house. This includes strange drips that appear on the glass surfaces in her very immaculate house. They are not red, thank goodness! Still very strange. Have you ever seen anything like that?

  • Ghost Hunting

    It's been fun spending time with the Wichita Paranormal Research Society, learning about their ghostly findings in Wichita. One Wichita office building, that must remain nameless, is the most haunted building they've investigated, with numerous ghosts encountered. When I say encountered, it's not that the spirits managed just to "move the EVP meter". Portions of their bodies and sometimes their entire bodies were actually visible to investigators. I went on one of these hunts in Oklahoma (not with the Wichita group) and I spent hours in an abandoned, decaying hospital. .. even sat around in the old morgue there, only thing that happened was one inexplicable sound. Can't say what I would have done had I seen a transparent, floating, person in there! I am fine with not being a good vehicle for ghosts. I did hear, and in one case actually feel some on my many excursions to haunted locations with my former morning show host...but appartions. Have you SEEN a ghost? Call us some morning before Halloween at 436-1045~Jan

  • Famous PI to Investigate the Disappearance of Lisa Irwin

    Wild Bill Stanton, a former NYPD officer, Bodyguard and security consulant, has been hired to look into this case. An anonymous benefactor is picking up the tab. He's quite interesting and hopefully can find this missing child.

  • Sammy Hagar is 64 today!

    Happy 64th birthday Sammy Hagar!

  • I am Mayhem

    Maybe and I do mean maybe, it is just coincidence, but I was quite close to three different vehicle accidents that occurred within 24 hours of each other. I feel like I have become "Mayhem" First, on a Monday night I saw a guy fall off his bike and my husband and I stopped to render aid. The next day I witnessed a near collision between two vehicles I was following, followed not 15 minutes later by an actual collision between 2 vehicles, one of which I had just walked past in a parking lot. "If you see me coming, better step aside" Mayhem is a rather cool word, but I'd rather it wasn't synonymous with "Jan".

  • William Shatner sings "Iron Man"

    William Shatner sings "Iron Man"

    On Tuesday, Emmy-winning actor William Shatner -- best known as Star Trek's Captain Kirk -- will release a new concept album called Seeking Major Tom. The idea behind the album is an imagining of what happened to Major Tom -- the astronaut character who first appeared in David Bowie's hit song "A Space Oddity." The two-CD set includes Shatner's mostly spoken-word interpretations of classic-rock tunes like The Police's "Walking on the Moon," Elton John's "Rocket Man," Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly" and Black Sabbath's "Iron Man," to name a few. It also features an impressive cast of guest musicians, including Peter Frampton, Steve Miller and members of Yes, The Kinks and Deep Purple, among others. "Twenty of the greatest musicians alive today," notes Shatner. "All either were asked to come and join me, or jumped at the chance to come and join me. God knows why. But the result is...I think, monumental!"

  • Why Interview Hank, Jr. in the First Place?

    So Hank Williams, Jr. made inappropriate comments on Fox news. Why in the world would Fox news think he needed to comment on the golf game in the first place? And then why pull the open to Football for one night in response? I believe in free speech even though I don't agree with Hank. What a cluster!!!

  • Sometimes A Spouse Can Be So Sweet

    My husband was away on business today and called to see if there was anything I needed from Oak Park Mall. I need brown shoes, but I didn't figure he'd be able to try them on for me. He agreed, but said he wanted to call and ask because he saw "Nordstrom's Rack" and thought of me. How very sweet.
