  • Look at this purrty car!

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    An elderly couple in Wasilla, Alaska turned their pickup truck into a giant red Radio Flyer.

    (They got the idea after visiting a car show where they saw another Radio Flyer car.)

    The couple worked on the car for 11 months. They used the base of a 1976 Mazda B1600 pickup truck.

    The 68-year-old husband had the construction skills needed to do the work. His hobby is building home aircraft, so this wasn't too different.

    Lots of components from the Mazda are still in the flyer, including the instrument panel, steering column, levels, frame and engine. The man added smaller wheels, hubcaps painted white and used old laundry detergent caps for the hubs.

    He also made the 8-foot tall handle from PVC piping wrapped in fiberglass. It rises from the front bumper high over the windshield.

    There's no storage space on the wagon, so the man made an especially big glove compartment.

  • This is why Johnny Depp is my favorite actor EVER!

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

     


    Johnny Depp, aka Captain Jack Sparrow, surprised students at a school in London.

    A student wrote to Captain Sparrow asking him to come visit as he is filming the 4th installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The letter said, 'Captain Jack Sparrow, At Meridian Primary School, we are a bunch of budding young pirates and we were having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers, and we'd love if you could come and help."

    Sure enough: Depp arrived, in full costume.

    He asked the young girl who wrote the letter to make herself known. He gave her a big hug and said no mutiny today because the police are outside.

    The school only knew of Depp's visit 10 minutes before he arrived.

  • Top 10 way employees waste time at work

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

     


    Website 24/7 Wall St. looked at a number of workplace studies on how people spend time online, and found that most say employees with PCs spend 20-plus hours a week on the Web while at work—and about a quarter of that is for personal use.

    Here are the top 10 "time wasters":

    1. Social Networks: 1 hr, 14 min/week; apparently, 77% of employees who have access to Facebook from work check it at least once a day.

    2. Online Games: 34 min/week

    3. Email: 27 min/week

    4. Portals like AOL, Yahoo!: 14 min/week

    5. Instant Messaging: 13 min/week

    6. Fantasy Football – 0.12 hr/week (during season).  According to some reports, fantasy football caused $9 billion in lost productivity in 2009 alone.

    7. Pornography – 0.13 hr/week; 29% of workers have looked at pornography while at work.   70% of all pornography traffic occurs between 9am and 5pm.  What is the average amount of time each of these workers spends on adult websites per session? 12 minutes and 38 seconds.

    8. Videos/Movies – 0.21 hr/week; more than 161 million people watched an average of 157 videos in August.  The average online viewer watched 9.7 hours during that time.  The average duration of videos was 3.7 minutes.

    9. Search – 0.19 hr/week; According to a study by RescueTime, when Google replaced its home page logo with Pac-Man – the playable version of the classic game – earlier this year, it cost the economy a total of 4,819,352 hours of productivity, which researchers estimated was worth over $120 billion in potential productivity.

    10. Online Shopping – 0.15 hr/week; In 2009, IT information association ISACA estimated that the average employee would spend 14.4 hours shopping from the office around the holidays.

     

  • Reba's new cd drops Nov. 9th and features Beyonce' cover of "If I Were A Boy"

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    ~~ Reba McEntire's upcoming album is entitled 'All the Women I Am,' and it features a cover of Beyoncé's 'If I Were a Boy.' Reba's countrified version of the hit song will appear on her new CD, due in stores November 9.

     

    This isn't the first time a Beyoncé-penned tune has become a country crossover. Sugarland covered her infectious hit, 'Irreplaceable,' on their 'Live on the Inside' album, and Beyoncé even performed the song with the duo on the 2007 American Music Awards. I hope Reba releases this to us in radio so we can play it...LOVE IT ~Charli

    She shot the bear during a hunting trip in Oba, Ontario.

    It was the first animal she killed with her new bow.

    Leonardo DiCaprio said in a statement:

    "Gloria Stuart was a force both on and off screen. An amazingly sweet person, a fantastic actress, and someone who always fought for what she believed in."

    "She was one of the last great actresses from the Golden era of Hollywood. I was honored to have worked along side her. She will be missed."
