Today is Upsy Daisy Day, a time to get up gloriously, gratefully, and gleefully, today and every day. In other words, wake up today and say “Good morning Lord” and not “Good Lord, it’s morning.”

Today is National Best Friends Day. So happy best friends day to Angie, Vickie, Tracy and Diane!

And for you food lovers:

Today is National Jelly Doughnut Day.
Today is National Taco Day.

On this day in 1869 Ives McGaffey of Chicago patented the vacuum cleaner, which became America's most popular dirt collector until the first supermarket tabloids were published.

The St. Louis Cardinals had a rough weekend with three losses to the Colorado Rockies this past weekend. The will try again tonight.

The IRS says that John Kerry’s 2004 presidential campaign owes over $800,000 in back taxes. I guess that explains the long face.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush is celebrating a birthday today. She was born on this day in 1925. I feel sorry for first ladies. I know they get to live at the White House, but they miss out on life's greatest pleasures, like browsing at Wal-Mart and saving 20% on Tres Semme Shampoo.

It’s being reported that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il is in the process of deciding who’s going to be his successor, and the most likely person is his youngest son Kim Jong Un. Kim Jong Un says he’s excited, but he realizes he’s got some awfully big women’s sunglasses to fill.

It's NBA Finals President Obama is said to be monitoring the situation . . . He said he hopes both sides will act with restraint and, of course, work towards peace.

A 23-year-old rancher whose family has fallen behind in their taxes and recently had a mobile home repossessed claimed a $232.1 million Powerball jackpot on Friday, one of the largest undivided jackpots in U.S. lottery history. Neal Wanless, who lives on his family's 320-acre ranch near Mission, S.D., bought the winning ticket in the nearby town of Winner late last month during a trip to buy livestock feed. He will take home $88.5 million in a lump sum payment after taxes are deducted.

I want you to know that if I ever win the Powerball that I will continue to come into the radio station to do my radio show. Because I am committed to being here for you. I call this my "vow of commitment." My friends calls it "stupid."

Father's Day:

Suck it up, Pop: just like Mothers' Day, Fathers' Day will be bringing fewer bucks to retailers than last year. The National Retail Federation reports people who are buying gifts will spend an average of $90.89 this year, down from $94.54 last June.

"Gift givers will be looking into items that dad can enjoy with the whole family," the NRF predicts in Marketing Daily. "Retailers will offer specials on new grill sets, sporting and gardening equipment and even electronics as the holiday rolls around."

Clinic in Virginia Offering Free Botox Injections to the Unemployed

Botox, which paralyzes facial muscles to make lines fade, is the No. 1 minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the U.S., according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. More than 5 million treatments were done last year.

Shannon Ginnan, a doctor at the clinic, said his patients are primarily women, but include people of various ages, races and socio-economic backgrounds. He said it's important for anyone seeking a Botox treatment to have realistic expectations.

Deep skin wrinkles, for instance, will not disappear completely. Some people also experience slight bruising after receiving injections. The cost of a single treatment can vary from $300 to $500, according to Reveal. Results typically last four to six months.

Job recruiter Laura Baker said doing well on a job interview, regardless of age, is all about exuding confidence.

"It's important when you're feeling down to treat yourself, to get a pick-me-up," said Baker, who works with the headhunting company Friends & Company.

"Whether it's Botox or something else, it's that fresh approach you need."

Music is A Vitamin for the Brain!

"All neurological conditions affect the throat because it has so many muscles," says Sarah Benton, another choir member with multiple sclerosis. "So singing, which makes you lift up your body and expand your lungs, is perfect for neurological diseases."

Music therapy has provided obvious social, mental and physical benefits for its members, there is a growing body of clinical evidence suggesting that music can play a key role in aiding recovery or helping sufferers cope with a broad range of brain-based conditions.

The power of music to enhance moods and emotions has long been harnessed by psychologists, but, as Dr. Lauren Stewart, director of a recently established course in Music, Mind and Brain at Goldsmiths University of London told CNN, "recent advances in neuroscience and brain imaging technology are now radically transforming conventional music therapy into a more rigorous and research-based clinical
