Michael Jackson and Stuff ...

The death of Michael Jackson most definitely evoked memories, emotions and reactions from all that heard the news.  Lisa heard some people on "another" radio station making jokes about Jackson and like many, found it sad and inappropriate.  Doing some googling, came across a blog that articulated a lot of what Lisa shared on K-LOVE this morning.

In my home we are also dealing with a loss, albeit a temporary one.  My wife and kids are gone for the weekend, which is hard on me and really hard on our dog Zack.  He keeps staring at the door waiting for them to come home.  He's so bummed that he won't "go", no matter how much coaxing I do.  Lisa said it's because my wife is "the big dawg" in our house - at least one it comes to our dog.  Got some great advice - one woman shared that my wife should talk to Zack on the phone (I now wish we included our dog in our cell phone family plan).  Another caller suggested I get some Dog Whisperer-type of advice.

Lisa got a chance to participate in a pie eating contest.  Sadly, she didn't win.  But when you get to see a picture of Lisa wearing a plastic trash bag with pie on her face, really everyone's a winner!

Car Seat Safety

Lisa spent her Monday night cleaning car seats after her youngest son got "sick" while in the car.  She discovered that cleaning car seats is not easy.  Lisa also revealed that 68% of car seats are installed incorrectly.  That's right 82% of car seats are not installed correctly, according to Lisa.  So if you are one of the 75% of parents (another Lisa stat) that doesn't have their car seat installed the right way, you can check with your local police or fire departments for instruction and guidance.

Our policeman friend Paul in Chicago gave us a great site to check out - www.NHTSA.gov
