Watching TV Can Kill You

tvsetThis is  alarming. A study done by researchers in Australia says that watching TV can be harmful to your health. More specifically, it says every hour spent watching TV was associated with an 11 percent higher risk of death from all causes. By all rights, I should already be dead! When I was growing up, I hardly remember the TV ever being turned off. When I got up in the morning, there was the Today Show or Ray Rayner and cartoons. After I went to bed, it was Johnny Carson. Perhaps somewhere between midnight and 6am we gave the thing a rest, but I doubt it. I guess it's not a real surprise that having a sendentary lifestyle can be harmful to your health, but the study doesn't give any weight to the quality of life enhancing benefits of television watching. I've learned so much from the old boob tube..I'm not sure I would want to go on living if I didn't know stuff like this: --When the Mosquitoes visit Gilligan's Island, the group the ladies form is called the Honeybees, and Mrs. Howell is the lead singer. --There really was a Dialing for Dollars program..like the one mentioned in "Mercedes Benz"  by Janis Joplin. --Dr. Johnny Fever got fired from a radio job for saying "booger" on the air. --The statues on Easter Island were put there by ancient astronauts. --Don't say "Sock it to me" unless you want some one to sock it to you. --Irish Spring is manly yes, but it's okay for me to like it too. --The ancient Chinese secret is Calgon. And that's just stuff I learned before I graduated from high school! I'm not worried about dying right now. I figure my never-ending quest for knowledge will keep me going for a while.

"Thank God I'm a Country Boy" John Denver: World's Worst iPod
There was just about universal love for this foot-stomper from John Denver. John Denver had hit after hit in the mid 1970s, and this was one of them, goign all the way to #1 in 1975. Go ahead, crank it up, sing it loud and proud. And maybe swing...

World's Worst iPod: Jump 'N The Saddle Band "The Curly Shuffle"
A silly novelty tune with a jump swing beat took the country by storm--at least parts of it--in early 1984.  A Chicago band called Jump 'N The Saddle scored a #15 with the Curly Shuffle...and it seems a lot of people have some pretty awesome...

World's Worst iPod:The Human League "(Keep Feeling) Fascination
It was almost a clean-sweep this morning for the synthesizer heavy "(Keep Feeling) Fascination") by the Human League.  Everybody was in the mood for a little 80s fun! It made it up to #8 on the charts in 1983, a couple of years after...

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!! Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the...

World's Worst iPod: Wayne Newton "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast"
With Father's Day coming up, we thought we'd choose one of the greatest dad songs of all time.  But since that song wasn't on the iPod, we decided to go with "Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast" by Wayne Newton. This song made...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo
Today was another busy day at Bonnaroo. We started the day off by seeing Shakey Graves. I missed his show in Madison earlier this year so he was a must see on my list. Loved him! Right as he ended, a press conference with Ed Helms, Abigail...

Day 3: Saturday
Saturday was a very busy day! So many Triple M bands to see! So many concerts were back to back, so we did a lot of walking back and forth from the stages to the media compound. If you're ever in need of getting more steps in during the day,...
