From AC & Kelly this morning….Five Websites You Can Trust for Accurate Coronavirus Information
Here are some websites you can trust for accurate coronavirus information.
There’s a lot of information EVERYWHERE about coronavirus, and some of it isn’t always correct. Here are five websites you can trust with accurate answers to all of your questions.
1. The CDC’s guide to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) – Lots of information on what you should know, symptoms, prevention and treatment, and developing news.
2. The WHO’s guide to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak – How to protect yourself, travel advice, global research, and breaking news. Also check out their MYTH BUSTERS page.
3. The FDA’s guide to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) – Lots of information about fraudulent cures, preventative measures, and testing.
4. WHO Coronavirus disease (COVID-2019) situation reports – Updates on confirmed cases of the virus around the world.
5. Dr. Oz’s Coronavirus Survival Protocol – Quick tips from Dr. Oz on how to keep yourself safe through lifestyle, hygiene, preparation, medicine, and food choices.

What you should know…..Are there any habits I can practice at home to stay healthy?
Experts suggest everyone in the house start a new habit today: Wash your hands as soon as you walk through the door.”
So many people don’t know how to wash their hands properly,” says Edith Bracho-Sanchez, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons
You’ve heard it over and over, but one of the best ways to protect yourself against infection from COVID-19 — or cold or flu, for that matter – is good old-fashioned hand hygiene. Washing your hands frequently, as well as avoiding touching your face, eyes and nose, is a tried-and-true way to cut down on respiratory infections, Perl says.
Studies have shown that “good hand-washing and frequent hand-washing will decrease the risk of transmission of these viruses anywhere from 30 to 50 percent,” she says. “You can use the alcohol-based hand gels, or you can use soap and water. It doesn’t need to be any kind of antibacterial soap.” And you should scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds — about as long as it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice.
Also, if you’re not already doing it, start practicing good respiratory etiquette: Cough into your elbow instead of spewing virus-laden particles into the air (and wash your hands right after), and make sure to throw out your used tissues, since they might have virus particles on them.
“Those are very, very effective kinds of measures just in terms of decreasing exposure of others,” says Perl.

A Teacher Gave Birth on a Sidewalk at School? Her Principal and Dean delivered the baby?
What happened next?!!!
Lindsay Agbalokwu was due with her second baby on September 17th, so when the Colorado mom woke up on Tuesday with cramps, she wrote them off as Braxton Hicks (small contractions that don’t necessarily indicate early labor).
So Agbalokwu drove to work at DSST: Conservatory Green in Denver, where she teaches reading to middle school students, and hoped for the best. The 33-year-old had a busy day ahead teaching and handing out core value awards. But after the ceremony, when Agbalokwu went to her 6th-grade homeroom class, her cramps strengthened.
“The pain felt different,” the teacher tells Yahoo Lifestyle. Agbalokwu asked co-teacher Marissa Kast to cover her classroom and to alert principal Natalie Lewis and dean of students Chris Earls, while she used the bathroom.
“In the classroom, the pain went from zero to 100,” Agbalokwu tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
Lewis and Earls walked Agbalokwu outside the building while she debated calling her mother for help. “I said, ‘We should call 911 — I think the baby is coming,” says the teacher.
Fortunately, Kast had a sleeping bag in her car, so she laid it down on the sidewalk while Lewis called for an ambulance.
“I lay down and we put the dispatcher on speaker phone, who started giving delivery instructions to Natalie and Chris,” Agbalokwu tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
After a few “terribly painful minutes” during which Lewis coached Agbalokwu with encouragement, a fire truck pulled up to the school and emergency workers took over.
Baby Zara was born immediately and the mother and daughter were driven to the hospital. Agbalokwu is now home with Zara, her husband, and their 17-month-old son.
“I was in so much pain, I didn’t care that these people are my bosses — they are both parents,” Agbalokwu tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “They were my support people.”

How Do You Know If You’re a Strong Person? Here Are the Top Ten Signs
“Strength” can mean different things. So what does it really mean to be a “strong” person? A new survey asked 2,000 people. And #1 on the list is something NOT everyone sees as a strength. But it was the top answer in the poll.
Here are the top ten signs you’re a strong person, according to the survey . . .
1. Being able to admit when you’re wrong.
2. Having a positive attitude.
3. Being honest, even when it’s tough.
4. Speaking up when you think someone’s being unfair.
5. Standing up for other people who are being mistreated.
6. Apologizing when you’re wrong. So not just admitting it, but saying you’re sorry too.
7. Being supportive.
8. Being able to ask for help when you need it.
9. Putting your problems aside to help others.
10. Being patient. A few more that just missed the top ten are being committed to your family . . . being a hard worker . . . not giving in to peer pressure . . . and the ability to forgive people.
The Newest Hair Trend Is . . .
Apparently, the hottest new hairstyle is something called the STEP-MULLET.
The step-mullet is long in the back, just like a standard mullet. But instead of being extra short on the top, you have medium length hair on top . . . then you part in the middle like a bob for women or a ’90s skater cut for guys.
And thanks to the differences in length, it kinda looks like your hair is in the shape of “steps.”
(Here are some examples.)
Divorce Lawyers Reveal the Craziest Reasons People Have Split Up
Someone asked a bunch of divorce lawyers to list the craziest reasons they’ve seen couples split up. And some of them are pretty insane. Here are the highlights . . .
1. A guy divorced his wife because she was a loud chewer.
2. A woman had vertigo. Her husband thought she was possessed, and kept trying to do exorcisms on her.
3. A guy wouldn’t go on his honeymoon because he was worried about his plants dying. So the woman took her sisters instead, then left him when she got back.
4. A woman got KIDNAPPED in Mexico, and her husband wouldn’t pay the ransom. So her family paid it, then she divorced him.
5. A guy hated his wife for hoarding scrapbooking supplies. And she hated him for filling their yard with broken-down cars. So in their divorce settlement, SHE demanded to get the old cars . . . HE wanted the scrapbooking stuff . . . then they threw it all away.
6. A woman left her husband because he was, quote, “too sad” after his dad died.
7. A couple couldn’t agree on what to name their cat. The wife wanted to call it Snowball, and the husband liked the name Lily.
8. A woman divorced her husband because he refused to yell at her. Whenever she’d start screaming at him, he’d just sit there and take it.
This puts your day in perspective….Amazing kindness will warm your heart!
An autistic student graduated high school in New York last month. Now a video of him getting his diploma is going viral, because the crowd gave him a SILENT ovation.
His name is Jack Higgins…..he has a severe form of autism that makes him really sensitive to noise.
He wanted to walk across the stage at his graduation, but was worried about the crowd. So he did a bunch of practice runs with his teacher, where he’d plug his ears with his fingers. But then his principal ran an idea by his parents.
Before Jack walked in the gym, the principal asked the other students to be totally silent for him, and only do a soft golf clap when he walked on stage. And an entire gym full of teenagers actually stayed quiet for FOUR WHOLE MINUTES.
In the video, Jack walks in with his three brothers . . . goes on stage . . . gets his diploma . . . and fist-bumps the principal. Then on their own, his classmates give him a standing ovation without making a sound.
Jack’s principal says it’s the most remarkable thing he’s seen in his 31-year career.

Trying to get your body “Beach-Ready”….well from AC & Kelly this morning….
The Three Most Effective Exercises That Don’t Require Equipment
Two big excuses for not working out are: “I don’t have time,” and “gyms cost too much.” But those aren’t great excuses, because you don’t need those things to get in shape.
According to an expert with the American Council on Exercise, here are the three most effective exercises that don’t require any equipment . . .
1. Burpees. You start in a standing position . . . drop down and do a push-up . . . then pop back up . . . jump with your hands above your head . . . and repeat. It works your chest, arms, shoulders, core, hips, legs AND butt.
2. Mountain climbers. You start in a plank position, like you’re about to do a push-up. Then you bring one knee to your chest, alternate legs, and basically act like you’re running in place. Again, it hits a bunch of muscles at once. And it’s good cardio.
3. Turkish get-ups. This one’s harder and you’d need to practice. But basically, you start on your back, with one hand pointed at the ceiling. Then without letting it drop, you roll onto your side . . . plant one foot on the ground . . . and rise to your feet.
Once you get good, you can do it with a weight in one hand. But you don’t need one when you’re just starting out. It’s a good workout for your shoulders and core, and for stabilizing muscles in your back and hips.

We’ve had so many requests to share this from this mornings show with AC & Kelly…so here you go… 😉
“I love my job. I love the pay!
~I love it more and more each day.
~I love my boss, he is the best!
~I love his boss and all the rest.
~I love my office and its location. I hate to have to go on vacation.
~I love my furniture, drab and grey, and piles of paper that grow each day!
~I think my job is swell, there’s nothing else I love so well.
~I love to work among my peers, I love their leers, and jeers, and sneers.
~I love my computer and its software; I hug it often though it won’t care.
~I love each program and every file, I’d love them more if they worked a while.
~I’m happy to be here. I am. I am.
~I’m the happiest slave of the Firm, I am.
~I love this work. I love these chores.
~I love the meetings with deadly bores.
~I love my job – I’ll say it again – I even love those friendly men.
~Those friendly men who’ve come today, in clean white coats to take me away!!!!!”
Wow! Today’s Thought for the Day……..
So every morning at 5:50am AC & Kelly share a thought for the day….usually inspired by events/holidays/people……
It’s Black History Month…..today was nothing short of amazing…..in case you missed it….
From Nelson Mandela….
No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
From AC & Kelly this morning….Five Ways to Stop Being Late All the Time
Is this you or someone you know?
If you’re always late to stuff, here are five strategies that can help . . .
1. When you estimate how long it’ll take to get somewhere, always round up to the nearest 10. Like instead of saying, “It’ll take 14 minutes to get there,” assume 20 minutes. Then you have a little wiggle room.
2. Learn to be okay with waiting. People who are never late to stuff tend to spend a lot of time waiting in their car. Once you’re parked, you can read, listen to the radio, or waste time on your phone. And you’ve got nothing else to do, so it’s guilt-free.
3. Buy a wall clock. And put it somewhere you can see it while you’re getting ready. Or start wearing a watch. The point is it’s too easy to lose track of time if your only clock is the one on your phone.
4. Time yourself. Like if you’re always late for work, maybe you’re just not giving yourself enough time in the morning. Try using the stopwatch on your phone tomorrow to see how long it really takes to get ready. Then adjust your routine if you need to.
5. Stop making excuses, like you’re just “really busy.” If you’re ALWAYS late, it’s not because you’re too busy. It’s because being on time isn’t truly a priority for you. And once you make it a priority, you’ll be on time more often than not.

The Christmas that went viral.
Today Is the Loneliest Day of the Year??? According to the experts….but WHY????
Bad news and good news for you. The bad news: Between the cold, the dark, and the holiday stress, you probably feel pretty ALONE and MISERABLE today. The good news: Um . . . other people are just as miserable?
According to a new study, TODAY (11/27/18) is the loneliest day of the year.
And the three main reasons are: It’s dark outside . . . the weather is awful . . . and people are struggling to budget for Christmas.
But that means that tomorrow will be BETTER!
And at 8:10am tomorrow (11/28/18) on AC & Kelly…the TOP 5 ways to be HAPPY!
Five Things That Annoy People at Work
Are you annoying people at work without even realizing it? See if you have any of these bad work habits . .
1. Eating smelly food at your desk. Some of the worst offenders are hard-boiled eggs, broccoli, tuna, and seafood in general.
2. Asking too many questions. Asking questions is fine. Just try not to ask too many work-related questions, or you’ll look like you can’t figure stuff out on your own. And asking a lot of PERSONAL questions is risky for other reasons.
3. Being a slob. A messy desk is one thing. People might judge you, but probably won’t hate you for it. Just don’t be a slob in common areas, like the kitchen. It makes you seem irresponsible, arrogant, and immature.
4. Interrupting people all the time. You can definitely interject. But in general, make sure you just respect people enough to let them finish a thought. Otherwise, it looks like you don’t have good judgement, or you’re impatient.
5. Talking to people in the bathroom while they’re in one of the stalls. At the sink is fine. And the urinal, still fine. But if they’re in a stall, leave them alone. It just feels awkward and intrusive.

Please keep in mind these safety precautions:
Make sure kids’ costumes are loose-fitting and flame-resistant.

Does Your Relationship Pass This Ten-Question Love Test?
A bunch of divorce lawyers came up with a list of ten questions they say every couple should talk about before they get married.
If you don’t answer yes to all ten, don’t worry. It doesn’t mean you’re totally wrong for each other. But it might help you find things to work on.
Here are the ten questions . . .
1. Are you a good fit for each other? Which is a broad question. But just think about it.
2. Is your relationship grounded in friendship?
3. Do you try to see the best in each other?
4. Do you both have realistic expectations of each other?
5. Do you generally want the same things in life? So, things like kids, or a nice house.
6. Can you raise issues with each other, and talk them out?
7. Do you keep things exciting?
8. Are you both committed to working through tough times?
9. Would you pull together in hard times? Which is kind of the same as the last one.
10. Do you each have your own support group, so you don’t just rely on each other?

From AC & Kelly this morning…How to fall asleep in TWO MINUTES?????
Does it sound too good to be true?
Kelly has tried it for the past week….What happened?
She followed the U.S. Military’s Method for Falling Asleep in Two Minutes
The U.S. military came up with a method years ago that supposedly helps you fall asleep in two minutes.
A book in 1981 revealed a secret method the U.S. military supposedly came up with that can put you to sleep in TWO minutes. Here are the five steps you need to follow.
The first four are all about relaxing your body. Then #5 gets oddly specific about what to picture in your mind . . .
1. Relax your face, including your tongue, jaw, and the muscles around your eyes.
2. Drop your shoulders as low as they can go. Then relax your arms one at a time.
3. Breathe out, and relax your chest.
4. Relax your legs, starting with your thighs and then your calves.
5. Picture yourself in a calm location, like lying in a canoe under a clear blue sky. . . or lying in a black velvet hammock in a dark room. And if you’re still not asleep, repeat the phrase “don’t think, don’t think” over and over again in your head.
It might not work at first. But the military found that when people kept at it for six weeks, it had a 96% success rate.
83% of Men Pee in the Shower . . . Do You?…or……Do you know someone who does?
A new survey asked men about what they REALLY do when they’re in the shower, and it uncovered some unexpected truths. Check it out . . .
1. 83% of men pee in the shower.
2. 40% brush their teeth.
3. And 20% sometimes only wash their, quote, “important parts” and not their entire body.
The survey also found about one in three guys say sometimes they go to work without taking a shower. Eeewwww….
17 Royal Rules Meghan Markle Has to Follow Now That She’s a Duchess
While many may see tiaras, gowns and castles when they look at Meghan, the realities of living as a royal and essentially a life of service to the British monarchy involves a very ordered and highly scrutinized existence, filled with a seemingly endless amount of arbitrary etiquette that should not be crossed.
From entering a room in a specific order to making sure not to cross her legs or keeping her skirt a certain length, Meghan will need to adhere to a slew of royal rules to avoid major no-nos or faux pas in order to stay in society and the Queen’s good graces.
1. No Selfies: During her first official event with Prince Harry, Meghan revealed that she would no longer be able to take selfies with fans after a couple asked her to pose.”We’re not allowed to do selfies,” she told the duo, reports the Daily Mirror. The rule was created to encourage people to make eye contact and make conversation with royals, instead of turning their backs to them (a huge no-no) to take a selfie.
Jennifer Gehmair, Royal Family etiquette expert, told Smooth Radio, “Turning your back to the Duke and Duchess and taking a selfie is discouraged if at all possible. I know it’s fun to do, but they much would rather see your face.”
2. No Autographs: She may have some Suits superfans in her past, but these days the new royal isn’t allowed to sign autographs under any circumstances. From here on out it’s only royal documents and in some rare cases—visitor’s books, according toRoyalUK.com.
3. No Social Media: Meghan’s not allowed to have her own social media page, which is why her own lifestyle blog and Instagram, The Tig, went dark last year.
4. No Dark Nails: According to sources at OK! magazine, Royal Family members are prohibited from wearing dark and colored nail polish. Meghan wore the Queen’s favorite color, Essie’s Ballet Slippers, to the Royal Wedding, and we have a feeling that color is here to stay.
5. No Traveling Without Mourning Clothes: Ever since the King George died while the then-Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip were in Africa and had to travel back to England in regular clothes, it is imperative that all royals always travel with a set of funeral clothes in order to be respectful.
6. Curtsy Time: The queen expects female family members, including Kate Middleton andCamilla Parker Bowles, to curtsy when they enter a room in her presence, even when it’s an informal occasion, which means Meghan better get used to the curtsy. If she is at an official event, Meghan must also curtsy to anyone who outranks her title.
7. No Miniskirts: The queen disapproves of hemlines higher than an inch or two above the knee. Regular female visitors such as Kate, Camilla, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie are already aware of the fashion stipulation. If Meghan hasn’t already ditched her little black dresses or her minis, time to throw them out!
8. None of that Crossed-Legged Business: It’s frowned upon for Royal Family members to cross their legs, according to an expert for Hello! You’ll never see Kate Middleton crossing her legs anywhere other than at her angles. Kate often does a side-by-side move known as “the Duchess Slant,” which Princess Diana utilized. Meghan better be working on her Duchess of Sussex slant!
9. No Wedges: The Queen apparently DESPISES wedge shoes, says Vanity Fair. So get rid of ’em, girl!
10. Mealtime Is at 8:30: If dining the queen, Meghan should be prepared to always eat at 8:30 and dinner will be over by 10. The Queen is known for strictly adhering to her royal schedule.
11. No Open Seating: At a Royal Family gathering, Meghan will always be sat next to Prince Harry.
12. No Room Raiding: There is a strict code of conduct for how to enter a room when your are with the royals. Here’s the royal order: Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camila, Prince William, Kate Middleton, and then most likely, Prince Harry and Markle, according toReader’s Digest.

Someone poured through ten years of sales data to find out which type of Halloween candy each state buys the most of. So it’s really what each state HANDS OUT the most. And the overall favorite is CANDY CORN????…….
CANDY CORN!!! It’s the #1 candy in six states…and it’s cheap. Sour Patch Kids are next, then M&M’s, Milky Ways, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, and Tootsie Pops.
Candy Corn took the top spot in six different states . . . Alabama, Indiana, Michigan, New Mexico, Rhode Island, and South Carolina.
Next is Sour Patch Kids. It’s #1 in five states . . . Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Nebraska, and New York.
Five different candies took the top spot in four states . . . M&M’s, Milky Ways, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Snickers, and Tootsie Pops. Skittles and Starburst are the top choice in three states each.
Here are a few stand-alones that are only first in ONE state: Almond Joys are #1 in Connecticut . . . Hershey’s Kisses are #1 in Nevada . . . Lemonheads are #1 in Louisiana . . . 3 Musketeers are #1 in Mississippi . . . Life Savers are #1 in Delaware . . .
Georgia buys more Swedish Fish than any other Halloween candy . . . Alaska is the only state where Twix is #1 . . . and Montana wins for LAMEST Halloween candy. The one they buy the most of is GUM, specifically Double Bubble.
Two surprise SNUBS were Butterfingers and Kit Kats. They came in 2nd or 3rd in a few states. But they’re not #1 anywhere.

From AC & Kelly this morning……
What would You like to change about your significant other? AC & Kelly have the Top Ten Things Couples Would Change About Each Other
Here’s a dangerous topic for dinner tonight. Married couples were asked what they’d CHANGE about each other if they could.
The average woman would change four things about her husband. And the average guy would change SIX things about his wife. Here are the top ten for both, starting with things women would change about their husband . . .
1. They’d make him less grumpy. 35% of wives agreed with that one.
2. They’d make him listen more when they talk, 30%.
3. They’d get rid of some of his bad habits, 25%. They didn’t say which ones.
4. They’d make him more appreciative, 25%.
5. They’d make him help more around the house, 21%.
6. They’d make him eat healthier, 14%.
7. They’d get him to spend less money, 13%.
8. They’d make him cut down on the drinking, 13%.
9. They’d make him always put the toilet seat down, 12%.
10. They’d make him more emotionally intelligent, 12%.
Now here are the top ten things men would change about their wives . . .
1. They’d make her more affectionate, 23%.
2. They’d make her happier in general, 22%.
3. They’d get her to be more adventurous in bed, 20%.
4. They’d have her clean the house more, 18%. (???)
5. They’d make her more appreciative, 17%. So that one was in the top five for both.
6. They’d make her live a healthier lifestyle, 16%. Which kind of sounds like a nice way of saying LOSE WEIGHT. But getting her to stop being OBSESSED with her weight also made the top 20. So who knows?
7. They’d want her to have more energy, so she’s not tired all the time, 16%.
8. They’d dress her in sexier clothes, 16%.
9. They’d make her spend less money, 14%.
10. It’s a three-way tie between “Have more fun” . . . “Be less of a control freak” . . . and “Stop watching bad TV shows.” 13% of guys agreed with all three of those
The good news is it looks like most of us are willing to stick it out even if the person DOESN’T change. Only 13% of the people in the survey said they think they might have ended up with the wrong person.
So this morning…AC decided to see if he is an “average mammal”….
From AC & Kelly’s “What’s Trending”……
Almost all mammals, including humans, pee for the same amount of time . . . an average of 21 seconds. Different species all have different sized bladders, but compensate for it with their “flow.”

A Photo Shows the One Thing Still in Stock in Houston Grocery Stores: Vegan Meat Substitutes
You gotta love people who stick to their beliefs in a life-or-death situation.
There’s a photo that’s going viral from a grocery store in Houston that shows empty shelves with one exception: They’re still fully stocked with all of their VEGAN MEAT SUBSTITUTES.
It seems that when people were facing possible starvation or eating vegan meat, they all went with starve. What would you leave on the shelves?

Here’s the Food That Every State Hates More Than Anyone Else
A new study found the food that every state HATES more than anyone else. Some of the best ones are Montana hating pumpkin spice anything . . . . Virginia hating pizza that’s had the grease dabbed off with a napkin . . . and New Jersey hating gas station wine.
There’s a dating app called Hater that matches people up by the stuff they say they HATE. And they just analyzed their data to figure out what FOOD people in every state disproportionately hate more than the rest of the country.
The results feel pretty random, but still good. Here are some of the highlights . . .
1. Montana . . . pumpkin spice anything.
2. Vermont . . . spray cheese.
3. Virginia . . . pizza that’s had the grease dabbed off with a napkin.
4. Maryland . . . the corner piece of a brownie.
5. California . . . Chick-fil-A.
6. Texas . . . well done steak.
7. Hawaii . . . Coke. (Really?)
8. Wyoming . . . gluten free everything.
9. Illinois . . . biting string cheese…
10. New Jersey . . . gas station wine.
New York…Ranch on Pizza

Here’s How to Take Pictures of Monday’s Eclipse with Your Phone
You’ve probably heard about the eclipse happening on Monday. And if you’re hoping to take some pictures of it, here’s a quick guide on how to do it with your phone . . .
1. Use a solar filter. To take pictures during the eclipse, you need to cover your phone’s lens with either a solar filter or your eclipse glasses. Regular sunglasses will NOT work. And only take the filter off if you’re lucky enough to be in the path of totality, when the sun is completely covered.
2. Use a tripod to keep your phone stable. To minimize any small movements made by your hands.
3. Take pictures of stuff around you. If you don’t have a solar filter, eclipse glasses, or a tripod, take pictures of the stuff going on around you during the eclipse . . . like pets, and other people looking up at the sky.
4. Practice this weekend. Practice by taking photos just after sunset to get an idea of what the light levels will be like during the eclipse.
5. Keep your expectations in check. Let’s be real . . . cameras on phones were meant for selfies and other quick shots. So don’t expect AMAZING eclipse photos from your smartphone.
Recap: Use a solar filter or your eclipse glasses . . . use a tripod to keep your phone stable . . . practice taking pictures just after sunset, when the light will be similar . . . and don’t expect the photos to turn out amazing.
Have you ever lost your ring???
A Woman Lost Her Engagement Ring, and Found It 13 Years Later in a Carrot (Check out the picture at the bottom of this story!)
An 84-year-old woman in Canada lost her engagement ring while she was pulling weeds in her garden back in 2004. And her daughter-in-law just found it embedded in a CARROT.
There’s an 84-year-old woman near Edmonton named Mary Grams who lost her engagement ring while she was pulling weeds in her garden in 2004.
She searched for a few weeks, but couldn’t find it. So she bought a replacement ring without telling her husband. She says she was too embarrassed to tell him about it.
But now all’s right with the world again. Because Mary’s daughter-in-law was picking vegetables from the same garden recently . . . and FOUND the ring embedded in a CARROT.
It looks like the carrot started growing through the ring, and got too big for it. So the middle is a lot skinnier, and the ring is wrapped around it.
The only person Mary told about it back then was her son. So he remembered the story, and knew it was hers as soon as his wife showed it to him.
Mary’s husband passed away about five years ago, so she’s pretty excited to have the ring back. Apparently he never found out she lost it. But she says if he was still around, he’d think the whole thing was hilarious.
By the way, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Just last year, a guy in Germany found his wedding band three years after he lost it gardening. And that ring was ALSO lodged in a carrot.
(Here’s a photo of Mary’s ring still wrapped around the carrot.)
What’s your “Go-To” Snacky-Snack?
Do you have one food…that you just can’t have “one”….you don’t stop until you reach the bottom?
What’s the Hardest Snack to Stop Eating Once You’ve Started?
More than 2,700 people recently took a survey to find out the hardest foods to stop eating once you’ve started. And salty stuff like potato chips took the top spot. Here are the top five . . .
(and did anyone other than us notice that Ice Cream isn’t on the list? Have other parts of the country never heard of Handel’s?????
1. Chips, pretzels, and other salty snacks. 35% of people said they have a hard time stopping once they’ve started.
2. Candy, not including chocolate, 18%. So stuff like Skittles and Starburst.
3. Chocolate, 12%. That includes candy bars, like Snickers and Butterfingers.
4. Crackers and other bread-based snacks, 11%. So things like Cheez-Its.
5. Cheese, 10%. String cheese might be one of the main culprits there. (Here’s a scene from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” after Charlie eats too much cheese before a date.)

We LOVE our ice cream….here in the Valley…we have some of the BEST ICE CREAM! But…what is your favorite flavor? And do you know the difference between Vanilla and French Vanilla?
A new poll had people rank the best ice cream flavors, and we fully expected a BORING pick at #1 . . . either chocolate or vanilla. But apparently we’re NOT quite that boring . . .
More than 5,000 people voted online, and COOKIES AND CREAM took first place. Here are the top ten . . .
1. Cookies and cream.
4. Mint chocolate chip.
5. Strawberry. Neapolitan with vanilla, chocolate, AND strawberry came in 12th.
6. Regular chocolate chip.
7. French vanilla. If they’d lumped it in with regular vanilla, it probably would have come in first. They’re different though. Real “French vanilla” ice cream has eggs in it.
8. Rocky road.
10. Peanut butter cup.
How would you like empower the young women in your life?

Best Field Trip You took as a kid?
AC & Kelly are looking for fun places to take the morning show on the road….a Field Trip! They LOVE doing their show on location because it’s like being on a field trip.
School field trips are fun and educational for students…so why not a Morning Show?…..What was your favorite?
Here is a top 10 list of school field trip ideas…
1. Visit a Farm
Touring a local farm is a great way to learn about food production, different farm animals, and the hard work that goes into the food we eat. Students will have a great time while learning all the ins and outs of farm life. Local farms often give tours or welcome students because they realize the importance of educating our youth about farming and local produce.
2. See the State Capitol
State capitols are rich in history and landmarks. They are ideal field trip locations because there is plenty to do within the confines of the state capitols. You can visit politicians, see museums, or take in historic landmarks. The possibilities in the state capitols are endless – not to mention students will love the excitement of the city.
3. Explore a Museum
Museums offer a plethora of knowledge and entertainment for students of all ages. The great thing about museums is the variety of knowledge and subject matter that each museum offers. You will be sure to find something in the museum to relate to class subject matter. You can even spend more time in those areas to drive home key concepts.
4. See the Cosmos in a Planetarium
Planetariums are one of the coolest places to take a field trip too. I still vividly remember the time our elementary class went to the planetarium. The stars projected onto the huge dome paint a clear picture of the night sky free of light pollution. Students and chaperones alike will enjoy their time under the projected stars.
5. Learn About Animals at the Local Zoo
Zoos are another awesome place to take a field trip to. The animals on display are from all over the world and they bring their own stories with them. The animals – big and small, will captivate students and get them excited to learn more on their own. Field trips are supposed to educate and inspire and the zoo can do exactly that.
6. View a Play in a Theatre
There is nothing quite like the art of theatre. Taking a group of students to see a play will be a life changing experience. Plus, the magic of theatre will certainly peak the interest of any student. Many flagship works of drama are still put on to this day, so students will be able to see Shakespeare, for example, come to life.
7. Tour a Local Factory
Local factories give a glimpse into the manufacturing process, but they also show students the value in hard work and manual labor. Not all students will want to go on to college, so it’s good for them to see other trades and opportunities available to them. Factories that regularly set up tours normally have interactive aspects to them as well, so students will enjoy getting their hands dirty while learning about production.
8. Discover Green Energy With Wind Turbines and Solar Panels
Solar Farms and Wind energy plants are becoming increasingly more popular and accessible to the public for tours. Renewable energy is extremely important and students would enjoy seeing the huge wind turbines or learning just how much goes into the set up and use of solar panels. This is a unique field trip that students will remember for years to come.
9. Climb in a Ropes Courses or Breeze through a Zip Line Course
Rope courses offer team building and bonding experiences unlike any other type of field trips. Students learn to work better together and problem solve their way through tough situations. Zip lines are also great because there’s nothing like experiencing physics from a real life perspective. Zip lines use gravity and exact angles to create the sensation of flying through the air. Pair this with a physics lesson and students will be engaged and excited to learn even more.
10. Outdoor Team Building Exercises
Going on a field trip to participate in team building is fun and beneficial to the classroom environment. Team building exercises will create a better classroom morale and will even grow a sense of togetherness among the students. These types of trips also put students’ problem solving skills to work. They must work together to achieve a common goal. That’s a great skill to develop and practice often!

Are These the 10 Most Re-Watchable Movies of All Time?
AC has his favorites…Kelly has hers….but they didn’t even make the top list!
We are all shocked at the movies that didn’t make the list!!!! What would you put on the list?…..
You probably have a handful of movies that you’ve watched over and over and over again . . . and will STILL pop in every now and then, or stop and watch if you catch them on TV.
Ranker.com has a list of ‘The Most Re-Watchable Movies of All Time,’ and “Forrest Gump” is #1.
Here’s the Top 10:
1. “Forrest Gump”
2. “Back to the Future”
3. “Star Wars: A New Hope”
4. “Jurassic Park”
5. “The Princess Bride”
6. “Raiders of the Lost Ark”
7. “Die Hard”
8. “Groundhog Day”
9. “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back”
10. “The Shawshank Redemption”
What do moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day?
What do YOU really want for Mother’s Day?
A new survey found 70% of us plan to buy a Mother’s Day gift this year. We’ll toss down $58 on average. But 1 in 5 people think it’s hard to find a GOOD gift. So this might help take the guesswork out of it . . .
A bunch of moms voted on what the BEST Mother’s Day gifts are. The good news is you don’t have to get too creative. You could probably guess most of these. Here are the top five….
1. Flowers. Which seems boring and cliché. But 48% of moms said that if they only get one gift this year, that’s what they want.
2. Dinner at a nice restaurant. 43% said it’s a great gift. And obviously they want you to go WITH them. Don’t just drop her off in the Red Lobster parking lot.
3. A gift card. 41% of moms said it’s a good Mother’s Day gift. But don’t just hand it to her. Put it in a card. And obviously pick a gift card for a place she LIKES.
4. Jewelry. 28% of moms said they’d like to get jewelry for Mother’s Day. And it’s a good gift for multiple people to chip in on.
5. Beauty products. 27% of moms said it’s a great gift. Just make sure it’s something she’ll use. If you’re not sure, then think about something like a Birchbox subscription, where she gets different stuff every month.
Somebody Made the “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” Album Into a “Star Wars” Musical . . . and It’s Brilliant! Someone rewrote the Beatles’ entire “Sgt.Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album to tell the story of the first “Star Wars” movie, then set it to clips from the movie and put it on YouTube . . . and it’s brilliant. Even the title is perfect: “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans”.
A YouTube channel called Palette-Swap Ninja took the entire “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” album by the BEATLES and changed all the lyrics to tell the entire story of the first “Star Wars” movie. And it’s BRILLIANT.
It goes song-for-song, in sequence, and covers the move from beginning to end. It starts off with “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans” . . . which is also the name of the entire project.
From there, it includes songs like “With Illicit Help from Your Friends” (“With a Little Help from My Friends”) . . . “Imperial Holes” (“Fixing a Hole”) . . . and “Being from the Spaceport of Mos Eisley” (“Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite”).
Things even get a little trippy with “The Force Within You”, which is a take-off of “Within Without You”.
The whole thing is set to clips from the movie, and even if you’re not a fan of the Beatles OR “Star Wars”, it’s hard not to admire how well this is done. (Start with Tracks 1 and 2 here, then make sure you keep going to the next track. There are 13 songs and 11 videos in all.)

From Quickies with Kell this morning on HOT-101’s AC & Kelly in the Morning….
The right side of the bed is the wrong side of the bed. Yeah, I’m into talking in riddles now. So what?
According to a new survey, people who get off the bed on the right side are more likely to feel miserable, tired, and grumpy in the morning than people who get out of bed on the left side.
People who get out on the left side feel like they’re awake an average of six minutes earlier . . . and their mood picks up an average of 15 minutes earlier. They’re also 7% less likely to have someone at work comment on how tired they look.
The survey didn’t offer up any reason WHY people who wake up on the left side of the bed are happier, so it’s entirely possible this is a coincidence.
But we’ll offer up a theory. People who sleep on the right side of their bodies are more likely to have heartburn and acid reflux, because it opens up the path between your stomach and esophagus which can throw off your stomach acid levels.
So if you sleep on the right side of the bed, you might be more likely to sleep on your right SIDE . . . so that you’re not facing into the middle. And that could cause minor stomach issues that make you sleep worse.

How Long Do You Go Without Washing Things Like Jeans, Bras, and Sheets?
A new survey asked people how long they go between washing some things that, frankly, lots of us don’t wash very often. Here are the results . . .
1. Jeans. 10% of people wash their jeans every single time they wear them and 44% do it at least once a week . . . but 28% go at least a month, and 18% will hold out for months and only wash them once they get a stain.
2. Towels. 9% of people wash them after every use, which seems like ridiculous overkill. 43% of people wash them once a week . . . and 15% wash them whenever they get around to it.
3. Sheets. 44% wash them every one or two weeks . . . another 35% wash them once a month . . . but 21% use them indefinitely and only throw them in the laundry when they’re repulsive.
4. Bras. Only 5% wash them after every use . . . 56% go one or two weeks . . . and 33% wait until they SMELL WEIRD. Women are much more aggressive with their sports bras. 41% wash them after every use, and no one just lets them go indefinitely.
5. Underwear. 97% of people wash their underwear after they wear it once. 3% of people sometimes re-wear the same pair even if it’s dirty.
AC is completely amused by this…Kelly just thinks it’s disgusting!…
Funny or not? Your thoughts…
From AC & Kelly this morning….How Many of These Weird Habits Do You Have?
Do you ever wonder if other people share the same weird habits as you? Well we found an online survey about it. Here are eight questions we liked . . .
1. When you leave a store without buying anything, do you get worried they’ll think you’re shoplifting? 75% of people said yes.
2. When you write the word “Wednesday,” do you sound it out in your head as “Wed-ness-day”? 85% of us do it.
3. Do you pace around and fidget with stuff while you’re on the phone? 78% said yes.
4. Do you cringe when you hear a recording of your own voice? 82% said yes.
5. Do you ever worry other people are judging you for how fast your windshield wipers are going in light rain? 52% say yes.
6. When you’re reading a book, do you ever space out . . . read a whole page . . . and then not remember any of it? 97% say yes.
7. Do you ever close Facebook or Twitter because you’re bored with it . . . then open it back up one second later without thinking? 93% say yes.
8. Do you ever respond to your pet by saying, “I know” after they bark or meow? 83% of us do it.
From Quickies with Kell this morning….
What Does the Color of Your Car Say About Your Personality?
Can people tell what kind of person you are, just by the color of your car? Probably not. But a recent survey found out what other people THINK it says about you.
Here are six car colors, and what people think they say about your personality . . .
1. A black car makes you seem charming, intelligent, and ambitious. But also selfish.
2. White or silver makes you seem trustworthy.
3. Red makes you seem happy and adventurous, but also angry.
4. Blue makes you seem loyal, kind, and considerate.
5. Tan or brown makes people think you’re grumpy, mean, and boring.
6. A gold car makes you seem greedy and wealthy. Obviously it has to be an expensive car though. Even if it’s gold, people won’t think you’re rich if you’re driving a 1998 Ford Focus.
The survey also found men think women in red cars are the sexiest, and women think blue cars are the most attractive for men. The least attractive car color is brown.
The Newest Photo Making People Crazy: Are These Strawberries Red?
It’s been two years since that blue-black-white-gold DRESS blew up online. There have been TONS of confusing “What color is this?” photos that have gone viral since then, and here’s the latest.
A new photo is going around that shows a bowl of strawberries and it asks a simple question: Are they red?
The correct answer is no. All reds have allegedly been stripped out of the picture, so it’s all different grays. But we THINK they’re red and we see red, because they’re strawberries. We’re confused.
FYI-Kelly thinks they are chocolate covered! 😉
(Here’s the photo.)
- Chocolate covered, right?

Romantic Ideas for everyday that won’t break the bank!
As the months and years pass by in the relationship you may start to take each other for granted or start to believe that excessive shows of affection in love is just corny.
Create little ways to remind your lover that you’re still in love with them.
Love is more about bringing a smile on each other’s faces for no reason at all….And love is more about letting your partner know you’re still in love with little affectionate gestures.
Write little love notes and slip it into your lover’s pocket even if it’s just a little “I love you”. These notes don’t have to be elaborate. Even a little lipstick mark on a piece of paper will bring the same smile!
Whisper a message in your partner’s voicemail and say something naughty in the middle of the day.
Record a love message on your partner’s phone. Set an alarm for a time when you’re not around them with a message saying “check your recorder app/voice recorder”.
