Mix listener David Grandstaff called us with an interesting idea. He says he knows the cure for Cedar Fever! It’s a little bit of a time intensive process, but he swears it works.
Check it out, here’s what you do: When the cedar trees start growing berries in January and February, pick the berries…. Pick as many as you can for the months they are visible on the trees and freeze them. When September rolls around, swallow 2-3 of the berries everyday for a few months. Don’t chew them, just swallow them like pills. (He says they’re not toxic, so no worries!)
Apparently if you follow these directions, you’ll have absolutely NO symptoms of cedar fever when the season rolls around the following spring!
Very cool---thanks David for the inside scoop.

How AMAZING it would be if we coul d get everyone we know to send one!!! This is a great site. Please send a card. It is FREE and it only takes a second.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our guys and gals over there need to know we are behind them...
This year, with a cooling economy and escalating layoffs, many people are worried about the fallout from the credit crunch. Concern about the future is running high.
Many people around the world believe that everything we do on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day has significance for the future. The American custom of spending the night with a loved one and kissing them at midnight ensures that the relationship will flourish during the coming year.
In some South American countries, the color of the bra and panty worn at midnight on New Year's Eve is believed to influence your luck in the coming year. Gold or yellow is worn for prosperity -- work, money and success.
Other choices are white for peace and happiness, blue for health, pink for love and red for passion. Yellow is the most popular color in Brazil, Venezuela and Peru. Lima, Peru comes alive with the color for New Year's Eve. Everyone and everything is absolutely saturated in it. Wearing yellow underwear is a particularly strong tradition.
Although traditionally Mexico favors red and pink is tops in Argentina, it's predicted that this year gold or yellow will be the clear favorite in many countries. The colors chosen must be light and the underwear always brand new.
This Honeydew Camellia lace bra and panty set should be a winner for the ladies. Wear the yellow panties inside out to improve your luck. The Cin2 no show boxers are a perfect choice for the guys.
The tradition can be traced back to Spain in the middle ages when it was forbidden to wear bright colors, but since the people believed in the tradition they wore the colors underneath their clothes.

So, yesterday I went to Beleza Med Spa for Dot Therapy. My appointment was at 11:30a. They put numbing cream on my face for 30 minutes and then they did the procedure using a special smartxide laser. Now, at first, I was really scared. This is like laser resurfacing. It goes really deep into the epidermis and then eventually the top layer of your skin comes off revealing new, baby skin. He started the procedure and I honestly thought to myself, "This is it?" Seriously, if you have ever had a photo facial treatment, it's absolutely no worse than that. I couldn't believe it. It was over in like 15 minutes and then they put cold towels on my face and gave me a post-op kit and I went home. Before I went in, I had called to see if someone was going to need to drive me there and pick me up. Ha! ha! There is no pain killers or anything like that. I was able to drive myself home just fine. All I felt yesterday for just a few hours was a little heat. I am very red today and turning brown. My face looks kind of crazy but I CANNOT WAIT to see the end results. This was great! You know laser resurfacing in the past mean that you would be out for like a week. This is great! I needed to mow my yard today and you must stay out of the sun, so I slathered on sunscreen, and put on a cowboy hat for protection. I started mowing and their was dust and dirt flying up on my face so I ended up wearing a bandanna over my face and a cowboy hat. (ha ha) I looked like a bandit! I will be posting pictures soon of the before and during and then, of course, after photos. This is so exciting. Dr. Broder at Beleza Med Spa was so great and his nurse, Heather, is fabulous too. If you want to find out details about Dot Therapy, then go to http://www.belezamedicalspa.com/. It's the very latest in laser technology and Dr. Broder is offering a special on Dot Therapy right now! Oh, I can't wait to have a younger, fresher looking face and be rid of all the years of sun damage. Gotta go to bed but wanted to say that it's been a great experience so far! Talk to you on the air.

1. UNBAKED, MADE-FROM-SCRATCH COOKIE KITS: Get the dry ingredients of your favorite cookie recipes together, along with a mason jar, a note card and some “country” style ribbons. Layer the dry ingredients in the mason jar, screw on the lid, print the recipe on a note card in an old-fashiony looking font, and tie it to the jar with ribbon.
2. A SECRECT HOLLOW BOOK: Find an old classic book at your nearby Goodwill or used bookstore. Using an X-Acto knife, hollow out the center of the book. It can be used as a place to store treasures.
3. CREATE A RECIPE BOOKLET: Use a collection of your favorite holiday recipes, and then include a small assortment of samples. Pass your culinary traditions on to your friends.
4. GIVE THE GIFT OF TIME OR SKILL: What skill do you have? Can you help somebody set up a blog? Teach someone how to change the oil in their car. Can you give bike tune-ups? Mini lessons on sushi or wine? Give the gift of baby-sitting for new parents. If you’re a computer whiz, give the gift of free computer repairs. Make up a gift certificate.
5. FELT-BACKED TILE TRIVETS: You can find lots of beautiful tile at home-improvement stores. And a lot of times, if the tile is at the end of a lot, you can get the tile at a deep discount. Using a hot glue gun, add a layer of felt to the back of a 6 x 6 (or larger) tile, and you have a useful trivet for bringing a hot dish to the table. If you drink a lot of wine, you might consider creating cork trivets.
7. Mixed CD: Compile a mixed cd and mail them out to all your friends. It can serve as a holiday card, a moment of reconnection or your friends can get introduced to new music they might not have heard yet themselves.
8. MEMORY JAR: (Fantastic idea for a grandparent or older relative). This gift is time consuming but costs next to nothing. Contact friends and relatives and ask them to tell you some great memories of the person you are making the memory jar for and ask them to send you any old photos they have of that person. Then take 365 business card sized pieces of cardstock. Write one memory or put one printed picture on each of the cards. Fold each one in half and secure them with a bit of tape then place them all in a big jar. Decorate the jar. Every morning for the next year, that person can take out a piece of paper, open it, and see what other people cherish about them.

This was such a cool thing! To see all these FAMOUS artists coming together to sing this song was really amazing. Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Cindy Lauper, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, Steve Perry and so many more! Wow! Just taking a walk down memory lane!
Great Advice from author and life coach Cheryl Richardson. This comes from her book, "Take Time For Your Life"
1. Write down the name of a person in your life.
2. Am I able to be myself with this person? Do I feel accepted by him/her?
3. Is this person critical or judgmental of me?
4. Does the relationship provide an even give-and-take exchange of energy?
5. Do I feel upbeat and energized when I'm around this person, or depleted and drained?
6. Does this person share my values? My level of integrity?
7. Is this person committed to our relationship?
8. Can this person celebrate my success?
9. Do I feel good about myself when I'm with this person?
Wondering how to confront people who drain you mentally, physically and spiritually?
Tip 1: Make a List and Budget It Twice
"Estimate the costs of not only gifts, but of the entire holiday season, including cards, stamps, gifts for teachers, tips for postal workers and doormen, and various other expenses," says finance and debt expert Todd Cook. "Cut down and revise your list to make it fit into your budget. When you add everything up, make sure it doesn't exceed your overall spending limit and try to include a cushion for unexpected items or price fluctuations."
Tip 2: Do Your Research
Expand your sources beyond newspaper flyers, as there is a lot of information available on the Internet days—maybe even weeks—ahead of time. "Web sites like BlackFridayAds.com clue shoppers into what will be on sale at major retailers like Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Toys R Us on Friday morning," says Kim Danger, a family savings expert and author of 1000 Best Baby Bargains. "A quick check online on manufacturer and retailer Web sites, or coupon Web sites like Coupons.com before you go out can yield substantial additional savings on all types of products."
Tip 3: Shop Co-Op
You can cover more territory faster by shopping in a group, says Eva Yusa, shopping expert for the Chicago-based comparison shopping site, ShopLocal.com. Split up, sending co-shopping pals to different stores with everyone's wish lists in hand. "That way, when one person finds that special item, he or she can buy it for someone," says Eva. "You can learn from other shoppers, too," Eva says. Message forums likes on ShopLocal.com feature comments from consumers on where to find bargains, what's hot, shopping secrets and more.
Tip 4: Delegate
"Decide who—in your family or group of friends—will shop for each recipient," says Brad Stroh, national consumer spending and debt expert. "On days like Black Friday, this can help ensure you get to priority sales and stores, and make sure no one doubles up."
Tip 5: Be Size Wise
Shopping for a glamorous new outfit to get decked out during the busy holiday party season? Before you make a purchase, carefully measure your bust, waist and hips. Odds are, on a busy shopping day like Black Friday, trying something on is near impossible with long lines at the fitting room. "Keep in mind there is no standard of sizing in the apparel industry," advises Phyllis Brasch Librach, president and founder of a specialty retailer selling plus sizes. “The tag in two garments can read the same size, but on a critical measurement, like the waist, you may be surprised to find up to four inches difference between two manufacturers."
Shopping and finance expert Fatima Mehdikarimi reminds shoppers to take advantage of stores with price-matching policies. "Many stores will match and sometimes beat a competitor's lower price," she says. "Don't run from store to store for the best price. Save time and ask a store manager to price match."
Tip 7: Make Friends
They say it's good to know people in high places. That couldn't be more true when it comes to holiday shopping. "Befriend the sales staff at your favorite stores," advises Dara Fleischer, founder and editor of FashionJunkie.com, an online style source for serial shoppers. "They'll often suggest gift ideas you would have never thought of and will call you first when there's a special promotion." They'll even put items aside to hold it for you so no one else snags it, Dara adds.
Tip 8: The Online vs. In Line Debate
"Many retailers will run the same sale on their featured products online or in the retail location, while others even offer 'online only' incentives," says Cyla Weiner, owner of an intimate apparel and swimsuit boutique. Shopping online will reduce your time standing in line and searching for parking spaces, so if that's an option, make that your first stop.

1.) Slow down in bed.
This year, the American Cancer Society will be holding health fairs, school events among others in the hopes of educating the public on the effects of smoking. Check the web site for information on what is going on in your area.
GASO began officially in 1977 but six years prior, Arthur P. Mullaney laid the groundwork when he challenged the citizens of Randolph Massachusetts to put their ciggies away for one day and instead donate the money saved to a high school scholarship fund. He then coined the term “Smokeout.”
Minnesota’s Monticello Times editor Lynn R. Smith then organized Minnesota’s first D-Day or Don’t Smoke Day in 1977. The idea then spread.
So why should you or someone you love quit? Here are some (scary) facts about smoking: Cigarette smoking is responsible for almost 438,000 deaths (that’s 1 of every 5 deaths) in the United States. It harms nearly every organ in the body. In fact, more people die from tobacco use than from HIV, drug and alcohol use, suicides, murders and motor vehicle injuries—combined.
