I've been on the air in the Treasure Valley since 2009, and I love hanging out with ya! We're always chatting about fitness and exercise, relationships, and workplace experiences, pop culture news, kids, and other things that present huge challenges. Like online dating! Maybe Tinder will land me a fella here pretty soon. If you're a single mom trying to date hot guys, and also find time to eat, sleep, work, and exercise, I am right there with ya. We should form a support group. I was born and raised in the rural town of Elwood, Nebraska with one stop light, a court house, three churches, and a bar. I'm a Cornhusker, and graduated with a Broadcasting degree from the University of Nebraska, and then worked all over the country in radio, including Lincoln, NE, Austin, TX, Baton Rouge, LA, Tyler, TX, Olean and Elmira, NY, and several places in between. Oh, and I've done radio news in Hawaii. When I'm not working, I'm usually running. I try to run between 6 and 9 miles a day because I love that runners high! I try to eat clean too. I love shopping, going out for salmon and wine, seeing live music and comedy, and listening to all kinds of music. I've got three daughters, and that means in the late afternoon I'm an Uber mom, taking them to gymnastics, karate, softball, or whatever is in season. Life is full, and fun! You are an important part of it. So thanks for listening, and be sure to drop me an email anytime you feel like it. Make it a great day!

Some Idaho Moms Are Making Jewelry Out of Breast Milk

Having babies does strange things to us.  The hormones make us laugh harder, cry more, and we gain the heightened ability to sniff out the cause of a foul odor a mile away.

And sometimes we want to stay connected to the new-mom experience so badly that we will do anything to immortalize it.  And that includes turning breast milk rock hard so it becomes hard as a gem, and can hang on a necklace.  Check this out.

Trouble Staying on Track? Zap Yourself Like a Taser.

It looks like one of those fitness trackers, but this bracelet can send taser-like shocks to your wrist if you overeat, spend too much time on social media, or hit snooze too many times.  In other words, self-torture can be programmed like clockwork.  Would you?

At least you'd be up bright and early and you could catch Mike Kasper every morning. Maybe it is a pretty awesome idea.

Idaho is Getting Dropped From Its Football Conference

It could end up being a good thing, but for the Idaho football team right, it probably feels a little like getting eliminated from American Idol.  "You know, you're good, but we had to pick someone to get the ax and you've gotta go."  Here's what's happening to the Idaho football team.

Ticket Scalping is Getting Out of Control. What’s the Law in Idaho?

If you've ever tried to buy tickets online to a really hot event, you know how quickly it sells out.

After 15 or 20 minutes (maybe less) you'll see a message that says, "your event has sold out," or "only single tickets remain."

Ticket resellers snatch up the tickets quickly, and post them online a few minutes later for double, triple, and sometimes ten times the original price. Is this fair?  What is Idaho doing about it?

Yay for us!  We don't get too cutesy with baby names, and I just know our kids will grow up to be the coolest, smartest, most well-adjusted kids on the planet.
