THIS IS YOUR LIFE:The underroar of the flip-flops was back this past weekend I Columbia at the Walm-Mart…indicating that MU students arae returning just like the swallows to Capastrano!

GREAT WESBITE FOR MOMS : Tips and tools to help parents help their kids succeed in school. A panel of “real” moms and has lots of videos, articles, blogs, etc. that can be a big help during the school year! How to keep kids organized, setting a new bedtime, helping with the first day jitters and a lot more.

Which do you prefer a manual toothbrush or an electrict toothbrush? One could be better than the other!

It's possible to brush your teeth effectively with a manual toothbrush. But an electric toothbrush can be a great alternative to a manual toothbrush, especially if you have arthritis or other conditions that make it difficult to brush well. The bristle movement of an electric toothbrush might even help you remove more plaque from your teeth and improve your gum health. If you choose to invest in an electric toothbrush, look for one that's comfortable to hold and easy to use. A rotating-oscillating head is best. Other specific features, such as adjustable power levels, timers and rechargeable batteries, are up to you. What's most important is regular brushing, whether you choose a manual toothbrush or an electric toothbrush, and daily flossing.

Today is National Watermelon Day.

Single Working Women's Week begins today.

The annual Chocolate Festival is this week in St. Stephen, New Brunswick. For six days they eat, drink, and breath chocolate. After six days of chocolate, I would turn into a (5-foot-10, 180-pound) zit!

The annual Dog Obedience Championships are this month in Los Angeles. They wouldn't take my dog, Buddy . On his aptitude test my dog showed talent for only two things: barking at the wind -- and scooting across the carpet.

Christopher Columbus set sail on this date in 1492 to prove the world was round. And today, the world is still round. It's all that junk food. Actual, in those days, everybody thought the world was flat. Now, thanks to OPEC, it finally is.

This is National Smile Week, a time to look on the bright side of things. So go ahead, smile right now…before you hear the rest of this morning show and may not feel smiling later.

National Chigger Week begins today. A chigger is a tiny red bug that likes to bury up in your leg and have you for lunch. And dinner and breakfast.

Chiggers are so sneaky you don't even know they're eating you until after two or three meals. You'd think by now somebody would have invented a chigger alarm.


The X Games were going on in L.A. BMX racers, skateboarders, and motocross dudes all competing. I love watching people test the limits of their bodies and these dudes would have to be seriously athletic to do everything they do. The only event I don’t like is when the skateboarders grind down the stair rail. It makes a very annoying sound. It’s like Jessica Simpson. Very annoying.

Graduate Sues Her College Because She Can’t Find A Job
Trina Thompson gave it the old college try, but couldn't find work. Now she thinks her sheepskin wasn't worth her time, and is suing her alma mater for her money back.
The Monroe College grad wants the $70,000 she spent on tuition because she hasn't found gainful employment since earning her bachelor's degree in April, according to a suit filed in Bronx Supreme Court on July 24.

The 27-year-old alleges the business-oriented Bronx school hasn't lived up to its end of the bargain, and has not done enough to find her a job.

The information-technology student blames Monroe's Office of Career Advancement for not providing her with the leads and career advice it promised.

"They have not tried hard enough to help me," the frustrated Bronx resident wrote about the school in her lawsuit.

Iraq’s First Christian Radio Station is Taking Off!
Dramatic news out of Iran this weekend. More than 3,000 Reformers arrested. Some 600 wounded. Conflicting reports about deaths. Some say at least 19 have been killed by the security forces. CNN has unconfirmed reports put the number of deaths at 150.

But this isn’t the only story of revolution in the region. What the media isn’t telling you is that the Revivalists are moving powerfully to share the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the Muslim world.

Last month, for example, the Kurdish government of Iraq in May gave permission for a Christian radio station that The Joshua Fund helped finance to officially begin broadcast operations. The establishment of such a station owned and operated by Iraqi followers of Jesus Christ is really an historic development in the history of Christianity in the land once called Babylonia, and we are deeply grateful for your prayerful and financial support in making this happen.

The station is operating on 97.1 FM in Erbil and has a translator station operating on 104.7 FM in the city of Kirkuk, a city of about 850,000. Each transmitter operates at 250 watts. That station — which can be heard throughout the Kurdish region and thus by more than two million people — is broadcasting Christian music, original and previously-produced educational programs, original and previously-produced cultural programs, Bible reading programs and radio dramas based on the Bible. All of this is in the Kurdish and Arabic languages.

“Growing up under the tyranny of Saddam Hussein, we never thought we would see the day when we who love Jesus could run a radio station in Iraq,” the station manager told a TJF staffer. “We are excited to see how the Lord will use us to bless the Iraqi people, and particularly the Kurdish people. Please be praying for us that the Lord’s favor would be with us and we would make a real impact in people’s lives here.”

Magnetic Signs For Teens Who Have Just GottenTheir Driver’s License
There is no easy cure for teenage traffic deaths and injuries, but Susan Kessler believes she has at least come up with a way to help limit the carnage: When a new driver gets behind the wheel, just slap a temporary warning sign on the car.

Kessler has developed signs for teens with learner permits and first-year licenses. They are attached magnetically to the car's sheet metal and display the words "Caution Newly Licensed."

It's not hard to imagine the signs being a nightmare to teens obsessed with what their peers think. But, Kessler, a Kennesaw, Georgia, mother of six, says the real horror is out on the highway: thousands of young people are killed and injured in traffics every year.

More than 15,000 of people have ordered the signs since Kessler and a group of other moms introduced them four years ago.

Parents can mount one on the trunk when a teenager takes off in the family car and remove it when he or she returns home. Once other drivers see it, they presumably exercise extra caution and create a "protective bubble" around the new driver, or so the thinking runs. AOL Autos: Rules for safe driving

4500 Year Old Skeleton Found on Beach in Rome – I didn’t even know Joan Rivers was traveling recently..did you?
A well-preserved 4,500-year-old skeleton of a man was found on a beach south of Rome, Italian police told Reuters.

The man is believed to be a warrior killed by an arrow in the chest, Reuters reported.

Six small vases were also found buried near the man.

"We thought it was that of a Roman solider, but then the experts identified it as dating back to the third millennium B.C.," said Raffaele Mancino, an official who oversees Italy's cultural heritage.

The skeleton was discovered during a routine air patrol of areas of archaeological interest.

Twenty Blind People Test Drive Car
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Several blind people were able to get behind the wheel of a new high-tech vehicle designed by Virginia Tech engineering students.

Twenty blind people took turns maneuvering the retrofitted dune buggy Friday in a parking lot at the University of Maryland. The test drive capped a National Federation for the Blind summer camp for 200 blind youth from across the country.

Virginia Tech was the only university to take on a 2004 challenge from the federation to build a vehicle that could let blind people drive.

The buggy they designed uses a laser sensor to figure out the road ahead. A special vibrating vest worn by drivers communicates speed and warns when to stop. And a headset relays voice commands signaling which way to turn.
