Manley in the Morning

I was born & raised in Marysville, Washington (the other Marysville).  I am the son of teacher parents so education was pretty important in my family.  I graduated with a B.S. degree in Organizational & Mass Communications from Eastern Washington University (after a lengthy battle over a typing compentency test, which I eventually won).  When I got to college I asked someone who had the best parties and they told me to try the Radio & Television Department.  So I got a job on the campus station and it turns out the guy was right, I got hooked on radio and the rest is the proverbial history.

 

I'd like to know what you are up too.  Send me an e-mail about your favorite things to do, fun websites you've found, funny stories or gossip you may have heard and things that you and your friends and co-workers are talking about (I can always use the material).  Thanks for listening and thanks for stopping by my page.  By the way if you have any thoughts about stuff you'd like to see here, send me an e-mail. - Manley

 

 


Manley's History lesson...

 

Monday March 27, 2017:

 

March 27th is the 86th day of the year. There are 279 days remaining until the end of the year

 

  • There are 5 days remaining until April Fool's Day

This Day in History:

 

--On this date in 1512, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon saw Florida for the very first time. From the ship, it appeared that someone on shore was sending them signals using flashes of light. It turns out, it was just a resident who had left their blinker on.

 

--In 1860, M.L. Byrn of New York received a patent for his invention: the corkscrew. And why isn't this a national holiday?  Open abottle & celebrate.

 

-- On this date in 1866, the urinal was invented.  To celebrate someone gave him a rather fragrant cake.

-- On this date in 1884, the first long distance phone call was made between Boston and New York. It was a brief conversation: one person said, "Hello New York?  This is Boston, Yankees suck!" and then they hung up.

Radar Online claims Blake Shelton is upset with Gwen Stefani for flirting with a contestant on The Voice last week. A source tells the site: “Blake is constantly talking about how he thinks that Gwen is too hot for him and when she flirted with the hot younger contestant, he got upset about it and was giving her the cold shoulder afterwards. You could just tell that there is a lot of tension between the two of them right now. They are not having the same type of interactions that they used to have, on-camera or off-camera.”

 

Contact Music claims Pierce Brosnan got sick after eating rat in Nigeria. The site quotes him as saying: ''[The worst thing I've put in my mouth] is rat. I was in Nigeria making a movie called 'Mister Johnson' and we went into town one night and there were these delicacies on a stick. I thought it was beef, but it was rat skin. I was sick for a week.''

 

Hollywoodlife.com claims Bachelor stars Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi may get their own reality show. A source tells the site: “They’re a hit with audiences and they both have strong personalities… a recipe for a hit reality show.
