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



Just another update on my Take Shape For Life program... Here's an updated photo after reaching my goal of losing 100 pounds!  I did it!  I feel great and I am now looking to forward to keeping it off with the help of TSFL & my health coach Christiane (who says I will never be rid of her) which is a good thing because I know I need somebody to keep me in line. :)



If you want to find out more about how I did it just e-mail me or call my Certified Health Coach Christiane at 514-1912.

Mike's Blog De Jour




So I'm finally going on vacation this next week.  I was supposed to be on vacation the latter half of this week and be at the Oregon Brewers Festival.  It's a giant beer party on the river in Portland and it's basically free to get in but if you want to drink beer, you have to pay $7 for a special sampling glass.   What's so sad about the whole thing is that istead of going and having a great time in one of my favorite cities, hanging out with friends and sampling from around 80 different brews... I had to get my car fixed!  These two things do not exactly fall in the same range on the ol' Fun-O-Meter. :(  Oh, by the way, you may be wandering "if it's only $7 bucks why would getting your car fixed interfere with that, it seems pretty cheap.  Yes it's only $7 for the glass but if you want a hotel room within walking distance (since getting a cab is impossible) it's about $300 bucks a night!

  • It looks like the newest Transformers film, "Age of Extinction," will become the first film of 2014 to make over a billion dollars worldwide.
  • We hear that "24" will have at least one more round on TV.
  • Samsung executives are taking a 25% cut in their bonuses because of falling profits.
  • NASA's Kennedy Space is renaming one of its facilities in honor of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. They held a special ceremony yesterday.
  • T.S.A. security fees went up yesterday, which means your next airline ticket will cost more and not because of the airline.
  • In San Francisco, a bus makes its way around the city as a portable shower for the homeless.
  • Is California Governor Jerry Brown really considering a run for president in 2016?
  • Justin Bieber’s neighbors who have been complaining about his rowdy parties, have been given permission by police to make a citizens arrest if his parties get too out of control.  I just hope he resists and they get to tazer & pepper spray him as well.





Taken together, all of the following lifestyle changes will help you live as much as 30 years longer. Here are tips from Dr. Sanjay Gupta's book "Chasing Life".


5 years: Don't smoke
It's not cool to smoke. You smell, your teeth turn yellow, your skin looks like leather and your voice gets low and raspy. It also gives you lung cancer. Ick.


5 years: Eat power foods
It's all about the antioxidants. Every day you should eat a handful of dark chocolate and almonds, as well as fruits, vegetables, garlic and even a glass of wine.


4 years: Skip the fast food
Drive past the McDonald's and Wendy's without stopping and you'll live a lot longer since you're not ingesting all that fat and cholesterol.


3 years: Get moving
Run for 30 minutes, five days a week and you can live up to four years longer. If you walk, you'll add three years.


3 years: Get married
Numerous studies have shown that married people are happier and healthier. Why? They take care of each other. Face it, most men see a doctor because their wives made the appointment and told them to go.


3 years: Eat salmon twice a week
Eating fatty fish that contains omega 3 fatty acids, such as wild salmon, herring, mackerel and sardines, not only appears to lower your risk of Alzheimer's disease, but also helps control triglyceride levels and inflammation.


3 years: Lose the fat
You'll not only look and feel better, but you'll be healthier if you lose weight. Being overweight increases your risk of death by 20 to 40 percent. Now that's motivation!


3 years: Have sex
Having sex two to three times a week helps you live longer by cutting in half your risk for heart disease and stroke. How? Sex burns about 200 calories, which is the same as running for 30 minutes.


1 year: Floss daily
The greatest benefit of regular flossing is healthy gums. Research has shown that gum inflammation is linked to heart disease. Keep your gums healthy and your heart may follow.
