TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: 10-year-old boy does this every morning to make his neighbors smile

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: 10-year-old boy does this every morning to make his neighbors smile

We could use more kids doing things like this.

A 10-year-old in Massachusetts boy named Michael Richardson has been making his neighbors smile every morning. Michael gets up early every day to stand outside his house and hold up inspirational signs for people as they drive by.

The signs say things like “Be Happy” and “Today Is a Great Day”. Sometimes that’s all it takes to help someone who might be having a bad day.

Great work Michael. More of this please!

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why do we carve pumpkins?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why do we carve pumpkins?

This is probably the most popular weekend for carving pumpkins. You might be cutting up a few Jack-o-Lanterns the next few days. But where did it all start? Why do we carve pumpkins?

Much like Halloween costumes, pumpkin carving started out as a way for people to scare off evil spirits around Halloween. Back in the day, the people would carve the faces into turnips, beets, or potatoes instead of pumpkins. Then it evolved into pumpkin carving.

Happy Jack-O-Lantern season!

Friday October 22, 2021:  Found At The Beach; Mommy’s Margarita; Raven’s Report Card

Friday October 22, 2021: Found At The Beach; Mommy’s Margarita; Raven’s Report Card

How many houses will you let your kids go to on Halloween?  Anna usually lets her kids go to 10-12 houses, which is WAY lower than the national average!  (:30)

Every Friday, Raven’s wife Alicia calls in to give Raven a grade on how good of a husband he was that week!  This week, Raven had to close the pool for the season, which meant that it was time to bust out the ol’ Scuba Suit!  (3:13)

How do you raise your kids to not be a-holes?  Melinda Wenner Moyer wrote a book with almost that exact title, and she spoke to Anna and Raven about how to keep your kids from becoming jerks!  (6:41)

It’s easy to get stuck on your phone and lose track of time, but if you’re out in public and holding up the line, that’s all I need to know about you!  (10:38)

When was the last time you had an MRI?  Anna hurt her knee and had to have one yesterday but she wasn’t prepared for how much of a struggle it was going to be!  (14:25)

What was the coolest thing you ever found at the beach?  Raven once found a two foot star fish, but it’s nothing compared to the 900-year-old historical discovery a diver found only 14 feet off the coast!  (18:21)

Are you up to date on today’s trends?  Anna and Raven go over the biggest trending news stories of the week, including the tragic end to a national news story.  (24:58)

Have your kids been driving you crazy this week? Doesn’t matter if it’s human kids or fur babies, Anna Zap thinks you deserve a margarita!  (28:44)

Brandon and Michelle have plans for Saturday night, but their usual sitters are not available.  Brandon thinks it’s fine to leave their 10- and 11-year-old sons home alone for a few hours at night.  Michelle says they are still too young to be left home alone until midnight.  What do you think?  (32:29)

Arlene thinks she’s got what it takes to beat Raven in pop culture trivia!  Can she succeed and win the $700 jackpot?  (38:42)

Raven’s Report Card: The Scuba Saga Continues!

Raven’s Report Card: The Scuba Saga Continues!

Raven’s wife, Alicia, gives Raven a weekly grade based off how he behaved as a husband. On top of dealing with annoying crab grass, Raven had to suit up in scuba diving gear to close his pool. Will Raven’s scuba sacrifice be enough to earn him a good grade this week?
