6:15 Mother's day is coming up...here are some MORE HEALTH MYTHS YOUR MOM TOLD YOU, FACT-CHECKED: • "It's unhealthy to eat standing up." – Mostly false. Some studies have shown it may cause you to eat more than when sitting, but it causes no greater risk for indigestion or other issues. • "Reading in dim light will ruin your eyes." – False. Your eyesight can worsen over time due to a wide variety of factors, but reading in low lighting isn't one of them. • "If you go outside without a coat, you'll catch a cold." – Mostly false. Colds and pneumonia come from viruses, not a strong breeze. However, some research has suggested that getting chilled may make us more vulnerable if we already have a virus in our system. • "You lose 75% of your body heat through your head!" – False. The reality is that we only lose 7-to-10% of body heat through our heads. Bare hands also feel cold … not to mention bare feet. • "Wait an hour after eating to swim, or you'll cramp up." – False. In fact, the exact opposite is true. In order to swim, you need energy. So how else are you going to get it? – Condensed from Bustle.comhttp://www.bustle.com/articles/71073-can-you-catch-a-cold-from-going-outside-without-a-jacket-11-old-wives-tales-your
6:45 Hans and I talked about Martinsburg Comic-Con at Berkeley Co. Public Library's main branch in downtown Martinsburg Saturday 10am-3pm. http://martinsburg.lib.wv.us/
7:15 My Grandma Evelyn loved this perfume called Youth Dew from Estee Lauder. Let me be frank with you...it stunk! But, if I smell it now, it reminds me of her. Did you love the way Aunt Tilly smelled? Well, now a french woman can help you...
SMELL LIKE YOUR GRANDMA...or Aunt Tilly
Yes, you can now smell like a deceased loved one. A woman in France has started a business that will, indeed, bottle up the scent of someone who is no longer with us. It's actually not as gross as it sounds.
What they do is take an article of the person's clothes, for example, extract the odor, and make a perfume. The whole process takes around four days and costs about $600.
Katia Apalategui said she got the idea after seeing her mother hold onto her late husband's pillowcase so she could still smell him.
She hopes to launch the business in September. (Read about it here on: Women's Health)

8:45 Friday Toy Memory: When DC and I started talking I noticed he had a American Justice League T-shirt on with the Superfriends. That sparked my memory and it became my Friday Toy Memory just like that...I loved Saturday mornings watching the Superfriends and especiallyThe Wonder Twins. Remember "Wonder Twin Powers Activate!"?(Ice Unicycle, that's ridiculous...but we loved it!)
