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



Manley's History lesson...

*V-J Day: 2


On this date in 1901, Teddy Roosevelt made his speech in which he suggested, "Speak softly but carry a big stick!"


Today, he would probably include the condition, "but not a selfie stick."


On this date in 1945, that Japan surrendered to the United States. The only condition was that they would quit fighting if we let them dominate the auto industry... and the rest is history.


In 1981, the United States officially recognized Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia... three of the lesser known Kardashian relatives.

Mike's Blog Du Jour



Good to be back after spending a week or so with my folks up in Washington.  My Dad had some health issues so I went up to be with him and take care of him while he recovered.  Looks like he's going to be okay it just takes a little longer at 86 than it does when your 18.  As the week went on and he got to feeling better I was looking forward to being able to slip away and play some golf or at least get out and enjoy the beautiful weather.  Wednesday was a good day so we headed out for the beach and had a nice picnic on the bay.  Thursday was another nice day and I headed to check out some of my favorite spots and ended up at the casino.  Friday came and so did the rain.  That pretty much put a damper on golf plans.  Then on Saturday there was the storm!  We were still determined to visit some family where they were camping on the sound and just as we were leaving...the power went out!  Not to be deterred we went anyway only to find that pretty much most of western Washington was out of power.  We hung out and played some games and had a really nice time.  When it came time to go to dinner, the places that had power were jammed with people and we couldn't find any place to eat so we all split up and went back home to have leftovers by candlelight which turned out to a better meal than we could've had any where else.  It's so often true that there really is no place like home...even when the power's out.

In Case You Missed It...


National Potato Month


Here, from health experts, are tips on how to be the best couch potato you can be:


Invest in premium channels
Shelling out a few extra bucks a month for TV channels such as HBO and Showtime is well worth the investment. Experts say the more entertainment choices you have, the better.


Avoid "challenging" shows
Sunday morning news programs are less effective in beating stress because you're bombarded with bad news and exposed to politicians whose lies make your blood boil. Tuning into wrestling, NASCAR races or reruns of "Charlie's Angels" will do a far better job of shutting down your brain.


Use the "50/50" rule
Make sure you devote sufficient time to tube watching every day. "Waste half of your free time, just enjoy lazing around."


Watch what you like
A man who forces himself to watch a silly sitcom instead of the fishing channel because that's what his wife prefers could end up with as many stress-induced health woes as one who visits the gym daily.


The best solution is an extra TV
So both of you can watch what you want, one expert noted. "That's better than fighting over the remote, which is also stressful."


Learn how to use your DVR
Sure, reading all those instructions may briefly boost your blood pressure. But being able to record one show or more while you watch another will double your entertainment options, which is better for you in the long run.


Keep snacks on hand
The fewer times you have to climb out of your easy chair, the more relaxed you'll become.


Let the call go to voicemail
For the same reason never interrupt your TV watching to get the phone -- let your voicemail pick it up.
