It's fun to pick on the boys in the office, fun to play music, and fun to talk to you all day at work. Thanks for listening! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska. My whole family still lives there and I love going back to visit them, but I also love Texas. Barbecue, fajitas, and great live music....it's the place to be. I've lived in Texas for 16 years now. Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college. (The University of Nebraska...Go Huskers!) I've been on a hundred stations at one point or another. I just love radio. Other things I love....let's see. Blue ink. Black bores me a bit. I love cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and anything that the two happen to touch. I fall asleep in almost every movie I attempt to watch I have made it through Eat, Pray, Love and Mr. Wright. I like chick flicks. I have an awesome family and love spending time with them. You'll probably hear me talk about my daughters on the air. They're toddler girls who exhaust me, crack me up, and amaze me because I don't think I was ever that smart. I have two miniature schnauzers too. Thanks for stopping by. Now tell me about you.

If the Cowboys and Texans Make the Super Bowl, We’ll Be Paying BIG Bucks for Tickets!

It costs HOW much for a Super Bowl ticket?

The NFL is trying to close the gap between the face value of tickets, and the secondary market.  In other words, if the NFL increase ticket prices, scalpers will make less money and fans won't feel quite so taken advantage of when buying tickets from a ticket resale website.  Or will ticket brokers raise their prices too?

Are You Near Sighted? Far Sighted? Screen Sighted?

It's a brand new problem thanks to smart phones.

Since we spend so much time looking at small screens on smart phones and tablets, one researcher says it's ruining our eyesight!  Sort of.  At the very least, more people are having problems seeing things off in the distance.

You can see your apps on your smart phone, but can you still read road signs ahead? Is our screen-centric world ruining our eyesight?

Pop Culture Has Messed Up the Dictionary

So how do you use the word "literally?"

In the literal sense? That would be the correct way. But it's become so common to use the word incorrectly, it's hard to think of an example of what the correct way would be!

How about this. "I literally ran into your sister this morning," meaning I bumped into her and maybe knocked her down, or possibly crashed my car into her car. Literal meanings are actual and not figurative. You mean it exactly as you say it.

But not anymore!
