Long time local radio personality, and classic car enthusiast, Bob Steel takes the wheel for an hour of those classic tunes from the 50’s and 60’s that were as ubiquitous as shark fins and chrome on Saginaw Street in downtown Flint, back in the day.
The fundamentalist and anti-gay group has announced it will picket the funeral of former first lady Betty Ford, who died last week, because she got divorced before marrying the man who would later become President Gerald Ford. This, the group says, made her an adulterer who "loved to sit with tawdry reporters and blather about sex."
Father's Day is coming up. Which means it's time to put down that sixer of Bartles & Jaymes and learn how to make Dad a drink he'll really like -- a cocktail that harkens back to the days when men were men, fathers knew best and getting ripped at lunch actually meant something.
Whether you've already splurged on mom or are panicking at the last minute to find an easy way to show your appreciation for all she does, have no fear. The Internet is here to save the day with online Mother's Day cards. Some showcase your sense of humor, some get all mushy gushy and heartfelt, but all are delivered instantly with no postage cost.
If you really think about it, Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to make up for all those times you gave mom a hard time during your youth. After all, a bouquet of daffodils now definitely excuses that time you snuck out of the house at 2 am. And a box of gourmet truffles? The perfect antidote to the antique china you broke while running around like a wild banshee.
But while flowers and chocolate are dandy, they don't last long. Treat Mom to one of these five Mother's Day gifts she'll both use and love for years to come:
Though technically a religious holiday, Easter has become more synonymous with milk chocolate candies in the shapes of eggs and bunnies, fruity snacks in springy hues and all sorts of decadent desserts. Stock up on the goods in stores, but also think about making a few of your own delectable treats this year.
We imagine that at this point in the spring season, you've stocked up on loads of chocolate (or are anticipating a victorious post-Easter candy sale), faux grass and enough hardboiled eggs to live off of for the next six months. You've probably even posed with the Easter bunny, or at least passed one or two in the mall. But do you know why Easter is affiliated with such unique traditions?
Like many holidays, kids get the better end of the deal come Easter time. After all, it's the parents who stock giant baskets with mounds of chocolatey goodness, a wad of Easter cash, new spring clothes and adorable stuffed bunny rabbits. And it's the parents who plan expansive Easter egg hunts and myriad Easter activities and crafts. One other positive of being a kid on Easter? Watching cartoons, of course!
Take a break from dying eggs this year and re-watch some of these classic Easter cartoon clips.
