Good Morning Kix Country!

Happy Friday! It is not often that we have such a fun day in the studio. You could say it only happens once in a blue moon. Hehe. Here is some more information about the phenomenon and the origin of the expression. Blue Moon info

Have a great day everybody!

Austin Jackson and Seth Smith hit two-run homers off winning pitcher Phil Hughes, who improved to 10-6 despite yielding five runs and 10 hits in five innings.

Hey everybody!

It is time for me to update once again, my fitness journey. It is an epic struggle of good versus evil.

That is really a pretty good description of how it feels. In literature, there are epic battles and struggles that cover generations. If we think of a food temptation as a battle and years or decades as generations, it is not that hard to see the comparison. There is no winning this war. The enemy cannot be vanquished entirely. The best I can hope for is to win more battles than I lose and survive throughout the generations as I have named the years. The only true defeat is giving up. I know that sounds like a motivational poster that would normally make me groan, but it is the truth.

Here are a few memes to help make my point and hopefully make you laugh!

Good Morning Kix Country!

Melia Jeanne here. It was a good show this morning. I hope you enjoyed it. The best part of this morning was my discovery of an article about Made-Rites. Now we all know by now that I am not from Iowa. In Kansas, there are no Made-Rites to be found. In fact I had not even heard the word until I was about 24 years old and made a friend who is from West Branch, Iowa. She started talking about them and I had no idea what she was saying. I had one that she made and it was good, but since I have been in Iowa I have not visited a Made-Rite location for a meal. That is going to have to change. The article, which you can link to above, is about the different varieties and locations of Maid-Rites in Iowa. It actually focuses on Taylor's Made-Rite right here in Marshalltown. We had a good talk about them and now I have to have one. I guess I know where I am going for lunch! Enjoy the article.

Have a great day!
