Friday, March 5th, 2021:  Raven’s Report Card; Hate Watch; Hide The Toys

Friday, March 5th, 2021: Raven’s Report Card; Hate Watch; Hide The Toys

Anna has a confession to make.  She’s been doing something.  Something that she has openly mocked in the past.  Something that she has passed judgement on many people for doing.  And she loves it.

Do you have Zoom fatigue?  Everyone has it to a degree, but true Zoom Fatigue isn’t just being frustrated at having one or two Zoom meetings a day.  Anna has seen the effects of real Zoom Fatigue first hand in her husband, and it’s not pretty!  (2:30)

Everyone is entitled to try to make a buck, but if you try to sell THIS to a busy mom in a parking lot, that’s all I need to know about you!  (6:18)

Every Friday, Raven’s wife Alicia calls in and gives Raven a grade based on how good a husband he was this week!  Last week, Raven was in the doghouse for eating her leftover chicken salad.  Can he redeem himself?  (9:13)

How does your boss show their appreciation?  Today is National Employee Appreciation Day, and it turns out, the things most people want from their boss isn’t money.  They just want them to say these 5 words!  (12:54)

Do you have a show that you hate watch?  It hasn’t been good for years, all the characters you like have died, but you’re just committed at this point?  Anna and Raven take your calls on the most hate-watchable shows of all time!  (15:38)

What’s that toy that you have to hide from your kids?  Anna’s two-year old has a new toy that makes a huge mess, and you won’t believe what it is!  Who gives something like that to a two year old anyway?  (25:27)

Mike is that guy that is constantly starting arguments on Facebook. He has even started fights with other parents in their child’s school’s Facebook group. His son came home upset because the kids at school were talking about how their parents were talking about him, and the crazy stuff he writes on Facebook. (They heard it from their parents). His wife, Jill, says enough is enough. He has to delete his account, not just stop using it, delete it. He says he can voice his thoughts even if they’re not popular. Whose side are you on?  (35:19)

Raven is on a roll!  Can Lisa stop his winning streak and win the $1800 jackpot?  (42:53)

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Family Pizza Places Feeds People In Need For Free

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Family Pizza Places Feeds People In Need For Free

While I am on the record as a Connecticut pizza lover (New Haven pizza capitol of the country) I will always acknowledge any feel good pizza story. After all, pizza is the one food that brings us all together. Pizza is love.

Like most small businesses and restaurants during the pandemic Calabria Restaurant and Pizzeria in Livingston New Jersey has been struggling to stay in business. But that hasn’t stopped them from helping out people in need. They have donated thousands of meals over the last year during Covid. Anyone who needs food can get it, no questions asked. The owners have told people to just send them a message on social media if the are having trouble feeding their family and a meal will be provided for free.  So far, they’ve given out around 170,000 meals in the last 12 months!

 

ANOTHER 20 FAMILY MEALS BEING DONATED TODAY TO LOCAL TOWNS !!
630 More To hit OUR NEW GOAL 5,000 FAMILY MEALS …

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

We’ve all used Elmer’s glue before in school or for various art projects. If you’re like me you’ve often wondered “hey wait, why does this glue not stick to the bottle but the minute it comes out it sticks to everything?!”

The reason for it is when white glue is inside a bottle, there’s not enough air inside the bottle to cause the water to evaporate to make the glue sticky.  The bottle actually protects the glue from the air and keeps the glue runny. Then when the glue leaves the bottle it reacts with water vapor in the air to make it stick to things.

Science!
