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

  • Bristol Palin now claims that her latest pregnancy was actually planned. Uh-huh.
  • Avril Lavigne continues her battle against Lyme Disease.
  • A new report claims that Phil Mickelson is linked to a $3 million sports-betting scheme tied to an "illegal gambling operation" based outside the United States.
  • A poll says that 72% of Americans fear an economic crash, the highest ever.
  • An Australian engineer has designed a robot that can build a house in two days.  
  • Jet Blue began charging for luggage this week. That leaves Southwest as the only major carrier that doesn't.
  • A fan rushed the stage during a Zach Brown concert and was tackled by Houston Texans' player J.J. Watt. Seemed pretty staged.


In Case You Missed It...



(from www.diylife.com)


Drink Lots of Beer -- Rumor.
The rationale behind this gem isn't to have a good time, but that the alcohol and yeast are not appealing to a mosquito. Actually, the opposite is true. A mosquito actually prefers the blood of a beer-drinker over anyone else. You can try to trick them by leaving out open cans of beer around your yard, but it's more likely that Uncle Kenny will just drink the buggy brews instead.


Fire Up a Bubble Machine -- Real.
Though I suspect that this tip was actually submitted by a 5-year-old who desperately wants to improve their bubble output tenfold, mosquitoes have been found to be repelled by soap solutions. So it's less about bubbles and more about the suds.


Mix Up Some 'Dew Real-ish
Someone suggested mixing Mountain Dew and dish soap, then leaving the solution out in cups around the yard. Again, the mosquitoes were probably repelled by the soap rather than the soda. So save it for the refreshment stand and swap in water instead.


Wear Only White -- Rumor.
The thinking is that bold and dark colors absorb heat, which raises your body temperature, turning you into a buffet for bugs. But if it's hot out, you're going to have a higher body temperate no matter what you wear.


Rub Chives On Your Pulse Points -- Real, but gross.
Mosquitoes hate the scent of chives, but so does everyone else around you.


Eat Plenty of Garlic -- Real, but also gross.
Points to the reader who painted a terrible picture in my head by writing, "Eat garlic until it oozes out your pores." Lovely. But if you happen to be eating a garlic-leaden meal, great news, mosquitoes hate you.


Vacuum Them Up -- Real.
Of course, if you have the reflexes and the eyesight to be able to vacuum a mosquito mid-air, then I suggest you try out for the next "Karate Kid" movie.


Rub Yourself With Fabric Softener Sheets -- Real.
It goes back to tips #2 and #3, mosquitoes just don't like the taste or scent of soap. But use caution, since this idea just sounds irritating to the skin.


Spritz with Mouthwash -- Rumor.
A popular email forward from a few years back states that if you spritz yourself with a 10 to 1 mix of water to Listerine, you'll repel mosquitoes. While the menthol and eucalyptus doesn't appeal to the critters, the dilution won't be enough to make much of a difference. (And directly applying Listerine to skin will just dry you out.
