Can You Still Find Silly Putty In Yakima?

When I was a kid, one of my favorite things was to get the comics section of the newspaper and use my Silly Putty on it. Just in case you have no idea what Silly Putty is, it's almost like gum except, you don't eat it, you play with it. Mashing it on a colorful newspaper or magazine will imprint whatever you stick it on. This kept me busy for hours.

Slang Words Yakima Kids Use — What Words Do Your Kids Use?

I remember slang words that we used "back in the day" and they were way cooler than the slang words that are used today. I was standing in line at Costco the other day and two teenagers were talking to each other. They actually weren't looking at each other, they were looking down at their phones the entire time.

What Is The Most Expensive Parking In the Yakima Valley?

I have to admit it. When it comes to parking, I would rather walk a little bit than pay a big price. Unless it is for a safety reason, and then I might pay a little. But $300,000? Not a chance in heck. But there is a spot in Brooklyn, N.Y., that was sold most recently for $300,000 -- for just ONE spot!

Spring Awakens Hungry Predators

During the morning show today, I was talking about one of my favorite things to do on my lunch break.

Instead of sitting at a place spending money I don't have, I love to hit the Yakima Greenway or do a few miles on the trails at Cowiche Canyon.

You Have Been Wrong About This Hangover Cure The Whole Time

A recent study has shown that chasing a hangover with more alcohol is the worst thing you could do. I have been wrong my whole life. When I have had hangovers, I  always drank a bloody Mary to chase it away. I thought it worked. Hours later, though, when I was not drinking anymore, I DID still feel kind of bad.
