Below is some information about bullying and what you can do about it…

WHAT IS BULLYING?

Bullying is when one kid or a group of kids hurts someone repeatedly with the words they say or the things they do. Some examples of bullying include:

  • Teasing or calling names
  • Leaving someone out of activities
  • Physically hurting someone like hitting, pushing, or kicking
  • Spreading rumors
  • Sending mean notes or emails
  • Making threats
  • Sometimes kids are bullied on the way to and from school or during school. Others might be bullied on the computer through email or websites.

WHY DO KIDS BULLY?

Kids bully other kids for many reasons. Sometimes kids don’t really like themselves, so they pick on others to feel better. It doesn’t matter how or where someone is bullied, bullying is just wrong. When someone is bullied, it can hurt for a very long time. Making kids feel bad about themselves or afraid is no laughing matter.

WHAT DO I DO IF I’M BEING BULLIED?

  • First, know that you are not alone. Many kids experience bullying.
  • Next, tell the bully (or bullies) that you want them to stop.
  • Then, if the bullying continues, ask an adult for help. You’ll need to tell an adult you trust like a parent or a teacher. Ask them to help you put together a plan of action to stop the bullying.
  • Practice what you might say or do if you are bullied again, using your plan of action.
  • Know that it can change! It may take a while for the bullying to stop, but stay strong and know that you are worth it.

DON’T BE A BYSTANDER!

WHAT CAN I DO IF I SEE SOMEONE BEING BULLIED?

  • First, imagine how you might feel if you were the one being bullied.
  • Refuse to join in.  Remember, bullying is wrong and it hurts.
  • Tell an adult you trust, like a parent or a teacher.
  • Be kind to the person who has been bullied by showing them you care

IS THE SADNESS DOLL TOO SAD?

A dad in the UK recently bought his daughter the “Sadness” doll from the movie “Inside Out.”  He claims he was shocked when he overheard the doll making “suicidal” comments when his 11-year-old daughter played with it.

The doll makes comments like:  “I’m in an emotional slump – my legs don’t work.  Give me an hour” and “Goodbye friendship, hello loneliness.”

The man wants the dolls from Disney recalled, and his money back.

SID TOOK BATTING PRACTICE

Yesterday, Sid took his daughter to the Tin Cap’s “Fan Day” at Parkview Field.  One of the things you could do was take batting practice on the field.  We’re going to be honest…it wasn’t pretty, and the video only proves that.  It’s worth a good laugh, especially when his daughter is the only one cheering for him.  She’s probably the only one that still believes he used to be a pro athlete.  :)


TINY DOG SNEEZES…AND IT’S CUTE!

This video caught the internet by storm this weekend.  The cute little dog has a sneeze that even dog haters will find cute.  Right?

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP

 

Start a match.com profile for the both of you.

Seriously, input everything you would normally, except leave out the kids and marriage part. Then, compare the people the site matches you up with.  (Side note: this only cost me $41.99 because I got a deal.  It may cost you a little more.)

****IMPORTANT NOTE: (Thanks to Angie Nash)  When you fill out your profile, DON’T put your local area code for searches.  Why?  Because it IS possible you can pop into these people, and they may want to spark up a conversation.  We didn’t do that, so there’s always that chance out there.  Ooops.

After inputting all the pertinent info, my “matches” popped up.  Honestly, I was seriously worried what type of women would be interested in me…especially the one that chose to live with me forever!  As the anxiety passed, my page listed several women.  As I was frantically checking for my wife, I FINALLY found her.  As a matter-of-fact, she was listed as my third match…NOT BAD. However, there were only 7 women matched to me.  Depressing!  However, there was good news here, in fact, match.com rated us 88 percent correct for each other.

My wife’s match history was a bit different….twenty three (23) guys matched her better than me. It was a huge blow to my ego, especially when I realized my profile didn’t show up until page 3! ON THE BOTTOM!

Em liked one guy that was a 91 percent match that was a 6 foot something Mathew McConaughey look-alike who was a man I WOULD date. Of course he was a widower, which made my wife feel bad for him….not good for me.

This all sounds bad and heart breaking, but it did serve a purpose. We found out that a stupid website thought we had an 88 percent match, so that was good. AND, A LOT of the guys that were matched ahead of me had pictures that were obviously pictures of guys with their ex-s cropped out.  That turned off Emily totally.  Other matches weren’t her type…or at least she lessened the blow by telling me that.

We found out what each other wanted in another person and that we were still really inline with what we wanted…and it got us to talk about the things that we weren’t matched on.

So….we’re an 88 percent match WITH 3 kids, a dog, and have been together for 12 years strong!  And, if something ever happens to Emily, it’s nice to know that there are six others out there for me.

KRISTEN BELL REACHES OUT TO SICK GIRL

There’s a new honorary Princess of Arendelle thanks to Kristen Bell.

Kristen heard about a 6-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) – an inoperable brain tumor last month.  Bell got into full character for the young fan, congratulating her on being such a “good girl” and “so brave” — and that Anna’s sister (Queen Elsa) would love to make her an honorary princess.

Avery’s parents have been chronicling their daughter’s journey on Twitter with the hashtag #AveryStrong.  Huggman’s father, Brandon, posted the full video of his daughter’s reaction to YouTube.

 


Sid’s MAN SEGMENT

“MEN’S BIGGEST COMPLAINTS ABOUT WOMEN”

I’ve got a bunch of guy friends, and yes it’s true, every now and then we talk about the things that bother us in our relationships.  It’s not a daily discussion, but when one of us has a serious problem, we definitely discuss it.  After spending a lot of my life in relationships, I figure that I have a good grasp on what bothers men about the women we’re dating.  These are by no means in any particular order of importance.  Please enjoy this week’s Man Segment, “Men’s Biggest Complaints About Women.”  ~SID

YOU LIKE TO PLAY COY
If you like your new man, let him know.  If you don’t, let us go.  Men HATE playing games, especially when you pretend that you don’t care and secretly hope we chase you down.  Leave that game for teenagers.  We’re adults, let’s act that way.

YOU FIXATE ON WHAT WE’RE THINKING, WHEN YOU SHOULD BE WATCHING WHAT WE’RE DOING
You ask, “What are you thinking?” and we say, “Nothing.”  You figure that this HAS to be a lie, so you decide to cause an argument because “we’re not willing to communicate with you.” This is ludicrous!
Men are action oriented.  You don’t need to ask what we’re thinking, just watch what we’re doing.  If we’re not engaging you and could care less that you’re in the room…that’s a problem.  If we’re just staring off into space every now and then, RELAX.  We’re just being men, and sometimes we like to clear our head so we can take a break and recharge the batteries.

YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND AND/OR LIKE OUR NEED FOR ALONE TIME
This is usually wrapped around a hobby we have.  If your man is really into golf, shooting, or just playing darts, stop worrying.  If you pull us away from the things we need in order to recharge the batteries and get some sort of grounding in our life we’re going to resent you.  That will lead to bad things happening in the relationship.  Here’s a good lesson…if your man is doing something alone, it’s probably so he can decompress from his stressful situation and NOT because he’s planning to leave you.

YOU HAVE A COMPLICATED SET OF DOUBLE STANDARDS
We can write a book on this one, but I’ll make it really simple for you.  If we go out on a date and you offer to split the check, and if we let you, you hold it against us.  Another example…when you ask us “What do you want to do tonight?” you get mad that we haven’t taken charge of the situation.  It’s a very confusing set of double standards and antiquated rules that make it very difficult for us to know what we’re supposed to do.

YOU WANT US TO CHANGE, AND THEN LOSE RESPECT FOR US WHEN WE DO
It’s an interesting problem…when a man and a woman get together it is likely that he will have some hobbies, tendencies or habits that she doesn’t like.  Then, for whatever reason, somewhere down the road in the relationship you’ll tell us, “I wish you didn’t (insert hobby here).”  Talk about an irritating situation to have to deal with.

YOU SEE US AS PROJECTS YOU CAN “FIX”
This is a serious problem that women need to stop doing.  You meet us, like us, but want to change us.  This is a huge problem.  Imagine if we did this to you.  If we thought you were cute but a little over-weight.  We started dating you and then BOOM, we drop a huge diet on you.  I’m not sure there’s one girl out there that would be okay with a guy doing that to you.
Please, if you thinking of changing your man, think about how it would feel if he did it to you.  Not awesome….huh?

HOLLYWOOD HAS RUINED MEN FOR YOU
Here’s a news flash.  MEN ARE NOT LIKE the guys in Hollywood.  I know you’d like us to walk through a hail of gunfire and explosions an quite our job while fighting off 7 terrorists just so we can declare our love for you in front of a live broadcast on national news; BUT it’s a movie.  This stuff doesn’t happen.  Think of it this way…women know we watch adult films.  Just like you don’t want us thinking that’s the way it’s supposed to happen in the bedroom, it’s not the way we act in real life either.  They’re movies…NOT reality.  Please set the bar a little (lot) lower for us.

YOU’RE ALWAYS LOOKING DOWN THE ROAD
Women tend to think about the next major step in life.  Men tend to think about what their next meal is going to be.  It’s okay to ask the guy your with where the relationship is going, but asking every day/week or month is really upsetting.  If you’re really interested in knowing where the relationship is going, have a conversation ONCE with your man and have him give you a time frame.  For example:  “If everything goes the way we plan, when do you think we’ll get engaged?”  Make sure he gives you an answer, and more importantly, STICKS TO HIS ANSWER.  Don’t ask him about it, just keep quiet and do your best to make it happen.  The only time it would be acceptable to bring it up is if the date has come and gone and he’s made  no mention of it.  BUT, don’t mention it the day after his “deadline” has passed.  He may be planning to ask you to marry him and you could ruin it.  I would wait a month after the date passed so you’ve got a good buffer zone in there.

YOU USE YOUR EMOTIONS AS A WEAPON
You probably don’t mean to, but when you start sobbing like a lost little child when things go crazy, it really breaks our hearts….AND you usually win.  It’s a nasty trick that we definitely notice, but there’s nothing we can do about it or we sound insensitive.

 


BOBBI KRISTINA PASSES AWAY

 

All weekend we were hearing rumors that Whitney Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, passed away after spending several months in a coma.  Late yesterday all the big websites jumped in and confirmed the story.

Here’s a look at what’s being said about Bobbi Kristina’s death:
ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT:  CLICK HERE
CNN:  CLICK HERE
TMZ:  CLICK HERE

The family released a statement, saying, “Bobbi Kristina was surrounded by family,” and “She is finally at peace in the arms of God.”

Bobbi Kristina was found submerged in her bathtub on January 31, and police believe she was underwater for anywhere between 2 and 5 minutes.  Paramedics were able to resuscitate her, but she was in a medically induced coma and placed on life support.  The family decided to end Bobbi’s suffering this weekend.

Bobbi Kristina’s mom, Whitney Houston, died from a drug overdose back in 2012 while sitting in a bathtub in the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.


 JAMES’ NEIGHBOR CALLS IN TO CLEAR THINGS UP

 

Earlier this week James told us that things haven’t gone so well between him and his neighbors.  He said that he ran into the guy’s girlfriend and tried to say hi.  He claims that she game him a “cold smile.”

It turns out that the girl James was speaking about was listening to the show and wanted to confront James about their meeting on-air.  She called Sid and set up the whole segment.  If you missed it, this is how it went:


THIS KID LOVES HOT DOGS


This kid absolutely fell in love with his hot dog at a baseball game earlier this week.  It’s pretty cute!

WHICH PICTURE DO YOU LIKE BETTER?

Best FM Pic JAMES

 

Mo sho pic SID DONE

The Best FM Morning Show finally got their picture taken for the website and it was also professionally photoshopped.  James (on the far right) has been dabbling in photo editing software and wanted the show to give him a chance to edit the photo on his own.  What you see above (on the top) is James’ attempt at editing.  What do YOU think?  Do you think the show should use the picture James edited, or the one that was done for us professionally (on the bottom)?

VOTING HAS ENDED

 

AND THE WINNER IS:

The professional photo we had edited grabbed 68% of your votes.  We have to thank you for helping us decide which picture is best to represent us on our webpage…even though that decision wasn’t that difficult.  However, it’s pretty shocking to know that 32% of you were okay with James’ picture.

Thanks to your votes James can now add “photoshop editor” to the list of obsessions he’s had that didn’t really pan out.  It’s got some company along with “realtor, community activist, mashup dj and hosting his own TV show.  The old John Wayne saying rings true…”If you fall off the horse, you just gotta get back on the saddle.”


 

Movie Madlibs

Here’s a look at today’s “Movie Madlib.”  Grab some friends and have them give you the words you need to fill in the movie plot.  Make sure you don’t tell them the name of the movie you’re doing…it’s fun to see their face when you read back what you’ve created.

We hope you have fun seeing how crazy you can make “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”
