Manley in the Morning

I was born & raised in Marysville, Washington (the other Marysville).  I am the son of teacher parents so education was pretty important in my family.  I graduated with a B.S. degree in Organizational & Mass Communications from Eastern Washington University (after a lengthy battle over a typing compentency test, which I eventually won).  When I got to college I asked someone who had the best parties and they told me to try the Radio & Television Department.  So I got a job on the campus station and it turns out the guy was right, I got hooked on radio and the rest is the proverbial history.

 

I'd like to know what you are up too.  Send me an e-mail about your favorite things to do, fun websites you've found, funny stories or gossip you may have heard and things that you and your friends and co-workers are talking about (I can always use the material).  Thanks for listening and thanks for stopping by my page.  By the way if you have any thoughts about stuff you'd like to see here, send me an e-mail. - Manley

Mike's Blog De Jour

 


It's National Bacon Day!  I marked the occasion by recognizing the accomplishments of Matt "Megatoad" Stonie who recently set the Bacon-eating World Record.  Matt knocked down 182 slices of bacon in just 5 minutes!  That's more than 6 pounds of cooked bacon which has over 28,000 milligrams of sodium!  After the event Matt said that he "didn't feel bad."  I guess that is compared to the "normal" human being who would probably be in a coma.

  • Sunday, March 29th, is the final episode of the 5th season of "The Walking Dead" and it'll be super-sized -- 90-minutes long.
  •  
  • Later this year, KFC is going to experiment with an edible coffee cup. You finish your coffee and then you can eat the cup, which will taste like a cookie.  (Unfortunately this will only be available in the U.K. where KFC is considered fine dining)
  •  
  • Kim Kardashian celebrated reaching a new Instagram milestone of 27 million.  (I’m sad that we live in a world where anyone follows Kim Kardashian anywhere)
  •  
  • A judge has tossed out half of the hours Lindsay Lohan said she had given to community service, so she's heading back out there for another 125 hours. (another 125 hours of kids tagging along to meet & greets & shopping)
  •  
  • Netflix is working on a new original movie with Pee Wee Herman. There you go.  (Netflix is like the Dancing with the Stars of video services, seems they’ve run out of stars already)
  •  
  • Did you know Scarlett Johansson has a band, the Singles? Their first song came out last week, as did their first cease-and-desist... filed by another band with the same name.  (After her encounter with John Travolta at the Oscars they should be called “The Recoilers”)
  •  
  • Two anti-aging scientists have wagered $1 million that will go to the person who outlives the other.  (Either of their deaths will be no doubt be investigated)

BUT WILL IT LAST?

Okay, you're engaged to the person of your dreams. Do you have what it takes to live happily ever after? Thanks to a 22-question quiz from Dr. John Gottman of Washington University in St. Louis, you can find out. The tests couples on how much they know -- and don't know -- about one another. Answer these 22 questions and then see below to find out what your answers mean.

  1. I can name my partner's best friends.
  2. I know what stresses my partner is currently facing.
  3. I know the names of some people who have been irritating my partner lately.
  4. I can tell you some of my partner's life dreams.
  5. I know my partner's basic philosophy of life.
  6. I can list the relatives my partner likes the least.
  7. I feel that my partner knows me pretty well.
  8. When we're apart, I think fondly of my partner.
  9. I often touch or kiss my partner affectionately.
  10. My partner really respects me.
  11. There is passion in our relationship.
  12. Romance is still part of our relationship.
  13. My partner appreciates the things I do.
  14. My partner likes my personality.
  15. Our sex life is mostly satisfying.
  16. At the end of the day my partner is glad to see me.
  17. My partner is one of my best friends.
  18. We just love talking to each other.
  19. There is lots of give and take (both people have influence) in our discussions.
  20. My partner listens respectfully even when we disagree.
  21. My partner is usually a great help as a problem solver.
  22. We generally mesh well on basic values and goals in life.

What your answers mean:

15 or more positive answers: You have a lot of strength in your relationship.

8 to 14 positive answers: This is a pivotal time in your relationship as there are strengths you can build upon, but do focus on the weaknesses that need your attention.

7 or fewer: Your relationship may be in serious trouble and could be headed for the rocks. If you're concerned about this, it means you probably still value the relationship enough to get help
