6:15- What was your first record?What was your very first record? Mine was Michael Jackson's “Don't Stop Till You Get Enough” which was released in March 1979. I remember getting a really cool van record player. Remember this song?

My recording equipment went haywire and I couldn't put the calls on the air but I did talk to 3 fun callers:

Stacy called in and said that she bought Rick Springfield's “Jessie's Girl”

Linda said her first 45 was “Chickaboom” from Daddy Dewdrop in 1972

Grace said that she got Gary Lewis and the Playboys with “Wild Thing”. Funny part is that she said she got that and her sister got Stevie Wonder album. I imagine between the two of them, their parent's probably had enough of those songs.

 

6:45 TEXTING CHANGES MEANING OF PERIOD 

Is digital communication putting a hard stop on basic grammar? Some experts feel the informality of texting has given the period new meaning, making messages that end with this simple punctuation mark harsher and more aggressive.  It’s due in part to the fact that fewer people use periods these days; a survey of college students found they use punctuation marks at the end of sentences when texting less than half the time.  Instead, many young people use line-breaks to signify the end of a sentence, which linguistics experts say mimics spoken language.  What we want to know is, when are they going to come up with a new punctuation mark to signify sarcasm?

7:15-How fast do you think you read? I took the quiz and it said I read 478 words per minute. I'm not sure I buy that but...I'll take it.

 

It also said it would take me 20 hours and 29 minutes to read Tolstoy's "War and Peace". Um, prolly not gonna happen!

 

Here is the quiz so you can take it for yourself.
