  • 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.

  • Where is the Paperwork?

    If there are any psychics in the Fox audience, I'd like them to visualize the paperwork I had stowed on my microwave while re-doing my office...I removed it in haste before a family get together the other day and now I cannot find it!!!!! I know, first my keys...now this.

  • I will be serving Breakfast Outside

    Phil and I were talking to the new guy, Johnny today. he was asking about how cold it gets here in the winter. We told him that he'd hear us saying "It's 9 degrees this morning" on the J and P show. Freaked him out a little and we get that. It reminded me that I need to spend more time outside before the cold weather arrives. Last year we had snow on the ground from mid December to mid February. Soooo, breakfast will be served outdoors at our house soon!

  • Space Junk Falling From The Sky As Fall Arrives

    The odds are 1 in 3200 that a person somewhere will be hit by one of the 26 pieces of old satellite space junk returning to earth this Friday. It's believed that the area, whatever area, in which the stuff lands will be about 500 miles wide. Only those 26 pieces are believed to be of sufficient mass to make it through, but one weighs 300 pounds! Meanwhile, FALL begins at 4:05am Ks. time Friday. Guess on which continent or into which ocean the junk will tumble and win a prize. Details tomorrow on the Jan and Phil show!

  • where will Perry go?

    Perry Ellis of Heights High School will announce his decision tomorrow as to where he will play basketball. He's ranked No.24 on Rivals.com and 37 on ESPNU's national list. He is Heights' all time rebound leader and second only to Aubrey Sherrod as far as points scored. I say he is going to KU and Phil predicts KY. We will find out Wednesday. No matter what he decides I wish we all could impart to him the wisdom we wish we would've had at his age. He's a great guy, but don't we all wish we had known then what we know now? Best wishes, Perry. You make us proud.

  • Hey, Get a Haircut!

    A benefit hair cut extravaganza is going on today at "Lomantini The Salon" at 1812 South Seneca. For a suggested minimum of $20 donation you can get your hair looking good! The money goes to LAPP, Lifeline Animal Placement and Protection, the only NO KILL shelter in our area! My dog, Happy came from LAPP and is adorable! Call 807-8473 for an appointment...they'll be open very late tonight!

  • Paul's Not Wed

    Remember the rumors of the late 60's? Paul was actually dead? I didn't buy it. However, I totally bought that this weekend would be the big wedding weekend for Paul and his fiancee, Nancy. Now it appears we (and Nancy and Paul) will be waiting a bit longer!

  • Money Can't Buy Him Love

    Paul MCCartney will soon marry his fiancee, Nancy Shevell. Both he and she have mega bucks, so I am hopeful this love connection will really last. Wish you all the best, Paul! Money can't buy you love, but I am hoping you've found it!

  • Douglas will be changing

    Remember "dragging Douglas"? Fond memories for most people. Well, times change and even Times Square now has portions that are pedestrian only and people are being encouraged to walk more. It's possible part of Douglas could become a pedestrian mall. Phil and I will discover this evening how the plans are looking and let you know what we might expect Douglas to look like in the future!

  • Two to tie, three to be the hottest on record

    A few more days of triple digits and we will break the record for the summer with the most 100+ days in Do-Dah in history. Remember the 70's and 80's when Wichita was often referred to by natives as "Do-Dah"? The station I worked for at the time here in Wichita even had a little jingle we ran that had the first few notes of "Camp Town Races" and everyone knew what it referenced. Well, back in the DO-Dah days (1980 specifically) we had the second most 100+ filled days during the summer and we have surpassed that...so as of this morning, it was 2 to tie 1936 (during the dustbowl no less) and three to claim the title.

  • Found the Keys!

    Ever lost your keys? Mine were lost for a full day and as a result I am vowing to do fewer things in a hurry. About 8:00 Thursday night I was hurriedly trying to take everything out of my car so I could deliver it to the location where it could be detailed the following morning. The keys wound up beneath a box of junk I hurriedly pulled from the car. the box sat in my kitchen until I got my car back and went through the "junk" and pulled out what was to go back in! Big thanks to everyone who tried to help locate my keys! Now if I can just remember not to roll down the window...got some tinting done too.

  • Is it snowing in here?

    I have never had sheetrock work done before, but I imagined it would be messy. I had no idea HOW messy. My sheetrockers were conscientious pros, but that stuff is crumbly. What isn't crumbly is powdery and has seeped into the spaces between the boards in our hardwood floor...Can't find a vac strong enough, it seems, to get rid of it all. Have a feeling I will still be finding residual stuff when I am 80.

  • Wichita Walkers 08-19-11

    Lena was found stolling along in South Wichita on her way to visit her boyfriend.

  • Not All Who Wander Are Lost

    Phil and I are intrigued by people we see walking in Wichita. Colorful characters and some who seem to fade into the background. Average looking people, gorgeous people, bizarre looking people, people dressed in the garb of other nations. These people all have their stories and all share our space. Come back to this website for some of their stories!

  • The Trouble with Tombs

    Sure, it seemed like a good idea. The now dead Russian man had probably voiced no objections to being buried beneath the floor of his church. Little did he know that a house would later be built on the same site and his 800 year-old skeleton would be observable from the patio. Cocktails anyone? There is no way I could have a party on that patio...it would just seem so disrespectful.

  • Dogs Are Such Wonderful Friends

    If only all the world could be as loving and easy-going as our dogs. "Happy" had surgery in Kansas City and that meant Halle went to stay at a lovely pet resort. When we all got back together "Halle" was determined not to be separated from me. She jumped behind me and tried to nap literally on me as I was lying on the couch... she kept adjusting and tolerating her uncomfortable postion...just to make sure she was right with me. "Happy" was content to lie at my feet and use them as a pillow. He is doing well after surgery.

  • "Happy" To Have Surgery

    We are taking our dog, "Happy" to an specialist for eye surgery. I will be off Monday and Tuesday. i am concerned about the anesthesia but have hopes for the best. He is technically Kent's dog and Kent is due a break this year, with so many losses. Please keep good thoughts for us.
