Love Your Neighbor really works!
“I listened to your morning show today for the first time. Money has been very tight the past couple of years but I still try to do something special with the kids. Yesterday we went to the McDonalds drive thru and when I came to the window we were told that our lunch had been paid for by the dirver in front of us. I was floored. I had never heard of such a thing and my kids were in disbelief also. All she left was a mass schedule with your radio station on it. All night they kept talking about the lady at McDonalds and trying to figure out who she was and why she had done such a nice thing for us. On our way to school/work this morning, I heard you all suggesting that people do just this. As someone who was on the receiving end of this jesture, it was amazing and something that we will never forget. I told my kids when they got out of the car they were now responsible to pay it forward to someone today and so will I. Thanks for the great idea and reminding us how a nice deed by a perfect stranger can make you feel.”
Thanks so much for participating in WGTS 91.9′s “Love Your Neighbor”!
Angry Birds Coming Soon to your Toy Box
It’s moving from your iPhone to your Toy Box! The makers of Angry Birds debuted their now product line at the New York Toy Fair this week. They have giant plush birds and pigs, squeezable toys that made the familiar sounds from the game, backpack clips, rubber balls, and even flip-flops.
Getting the most attention is Mattel’s Angry Birds: Knock On Wood is a clever translation of the app’s gameplay to real life. The set comes with three birds–red, yellow, and black–plus four pigs, some fake wooden blocks, a star, a tree, and a launcher. Players choose cards that outline the particular setup they must knock down plus which birds they’re allowed to use. Each card has a point value, and whoever reached 1000 points first wins. Pretty simple. Angry Birds: Knock On Wood will be out this Spring and will cost $14.99. The plushies and other toys from Commonwealth will make their way to toy stores big and small, gift shops, and even big box stores in the coming weeks. Sounds like a lot of “pick up” for moms though. Wonder how many of those birds will get lost under the couch…Full Story here.
Get More Sleep
Another reason you may want to try and get more sleep…A new study shows that people who get less than six hours of sleep a day are 50-percent more likely to develop premature cancer polyps in the colon, which could definitely put them at risk for developing cancer in the future.
A truly wise person uses few words; a person with understanding is even-tempered.
By His words we can see where we’re going; they throw a beam of light on our dark path.
The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.
Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.
A good name will shine forever.
Fractures well cured make us more strong.
