How? Who created the original Margarita?, Bike your clothes clean, Stop your par

5:45 I was just singing "Something About You" by Level 42. I was singing it like it was 1980-something. How come I can remember the lyrics but can't remember what I walked into a room for? Ugh.

6:15 Today is Cinco de mayo...W00t!

Which means you or your friends may just have a margarita. Did you know, this popular drink was created because a restaurant guest was picky and the drink was created on the fly in 1938? Don't believe me? You'll see there are many in the article who claim to have created it. Read this...

One story is that Carlos "Danny" Herrera, owner of Tijuana restaurant Rancho La Gloria, claims he invented the drink in 1938. What inspired him? A picky dancer, it seems. Restaurant goer Marjorie King declared she was allergic to all spirits except tequila, but didn't like to drink the spirit straight. So Herrera worked around the prototypical tequila shot (which is taken with salt and lime) and threw together the margarita. While all bartenders can relate to the situation of an annoying customer, it was Herrera who claims to have whipped up the instant classic – or so says his obituary. By the way, he lived until 90, once again proving that alcohol is probably really good for you.

6:45 Hans and I discussed multi-tasking:
Talked about that this weekend but I had to share it with Hans

PEDAL YOUR WAY TO CLEAN CLOTHES

Don't have time to exercise because you have to do laundry? Well, now you can do both.

The Bike Washing Machine is a stationary bike that also doubles as a washing machine. Your pedaling provides the energy necessary to run the machine – which is where the front "wheel" would be.

The invention is still in the concept stage. (Read the story: Techly.com)

May the 4th be with you, Kard-ashian block, Avoid the office 15, IKEA Couples th

Uh...May the 4th be with you!...and oh yeah, tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo.

5:15 Paint the Town Purple. Danielle will be downtown at noon for reading of the proclamation. Go on down and say hi to her.

5:45 KARD BLOCK: New Site Plans to Block All Kardashian Content Can't wait to see this in action!!!! Believe it or not, there are actually people in the world who don't want to know about the Kardashian family's every move. If you're one of them, there may soon be hope!

Some Web developers with no patience for the Kardashian clan -- and a lot of free time on their hands -- are working on a new product that promises to change the way you view the Internet. Kard Block vows to sanitize the Web of any and all content related to reality TV's first family.

The developers, who claim they're trying to make the 'Net a better place, are also working on a way to filter out Justin Bieber mentions. They feel these "improvements" will allow people to focus on the issues that really matter.

Talk About It:

  • Imagine if this could work anytime the Kardashians were mentioned on TV or in conversation by your chatty co-workers.

  • Absence makes the heart grow fonder. You might find yourself needing your Kim K. fix.

  • If you know how to code and share their passion for hating the Kardashians, they're looking for help.

What celebrity or artist do you wish you could block from the Internet?

6:15 The Office 15: 7 Ways To Avoid Gaining Weight At Your Desk Job

1. Snack on healthy treats throughout the day.

3. Plan cheat days wisely.

4. Recognize when you're snacking mindlessly. AKA GRAZING

5. Don't confuse thirst for hunger. (biggie for me)

This is just a portion of the list, get some of the explanations and the rest of the list from Elite Daily here: http://elitedaily.com/life/culture/office-15-7-ways-avoiding-gaining-weight-desk-job/1009743/

6:45 Hans and I talked about "May the Fourth Be With You" day. #‎maythefourthbewithyou‬. smile emoticon

It's a big thing...and not just for geeks. See more here: http://www.usatoday.com/…/…/03/star-wars-day-may-4/26835319/

7:15 When you go to IKEA it's an all day affair. I like to people watch and the last time I was in IKEA I watched pregnant couples shopping. It was like they were nesting and they needed to buy furniture right then. Also, I watched couples argue over furniture choices.


Unrelated but related. One time I had this boyfriend and we went through the purchase, loading, and assembling an IKEA bookcase. It was quite the adventure because, the whole thing was too big to get in my car, he had the flu, we got exasperated trying to assemble it together etc. Now
a Therapist in California has decided to use IKEA's furniture assembly as a couples therapy aid. Brilliant!

Here's how:

8:15 This is the beginning of our busy season. We have so many things going on from broadcasts, to festivals to a biggie on June 6 with Berkeley County's Relay for Life.

Paint the town purple, Debunking Mom's health myths, Comic Con and Free Comic Bo

5:45 Promote Danielle at Paint the Town Purple 11:30-1pm- Monday May 4th. All events benefit American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. Details here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Relay-For-Life-of-Berkeley-County-WV/140931315977778

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?

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/

Free Comic Book Day: https://www.facebook.com/BeyondComicsWV

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)

8:15 DC Cathro from Beyond Comics in Shepherdstown stopped by to mention Free Comic Book day. On Saturday May 2 from 10am-9pm. Customers can stop by and get a free comic book and they can also make a donation of a non-perishable food item to receive a second free comic book. Check out more info here: https://www.facebook.com/BeyondComicsWV

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!)
















That was a Saturday Morning.
