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

In 1830, the steam train service was available for the first time. Passengers could reach their destination while cooking vegetables and getting wrinkles out of their clothes.


On this date in 1919, the first airline passenger service began. You could buy a ticket, hop on board a plane and enjoy non-stop service for up to 735 feet.


On this date in 1944, meat rationing ended in the United States. That's when the phrase, "Beef -- it's what's for dinner" returned. During the rationing, the phrase was changed to "Beef – That is NOT what’s on your plate!

It's Lumpy Rug Day and while I don't have any lumpy rugs in my house, I do have some lumps in the carpet and I'm a little bit afraid of what might be under there.

Hollywood Hoopla


and other stuff I thought you'd like to know...



For May 3, 2016:


  • They say Jennifer Lopez is going to marry Caspar Smart this summer.


  • One of the tabloids claims that Jessica Simpson's husband, Eric Johnson, was supposedly "caught with the nanny."


  • John Krasinski is going to play Jack Ryan in a new series being produced by Amazon.


  • Princess Charlotte of Cambridge turned one on Monday. For those of you keeping score, she's 4th in line to the throne.


  • Amy Schumer says she's done taking pictures with fans, after a rude South Carolina man demanded one.  (She has since backed off and said she would take pictures with nice people at the right time.)


Other stuff:


  • The bodies of two American climbers who were killed in an avalanche in the Himalayas have been found 16 years after the accident.


  • A Nashville TV sports reporter says he was fired for doing a sports report that included as many Prince lyrics as he could possibly cram into it. Some viewers thought it was in poor taste.


  • Ringing Brothers' 11 performing elephants gave their last show on Sunday. After pressure from animal rights groups, they're dropping elephants from their circus. The 11 will retire to a home in Florida. After 145 years of shows, the elephants have left the building for the last time.


  • A new study shows that the bond between man and dog is so strong, the dogs' hearts actually beat in sync with their owners.


  • Wasteland Weekend, a post-apocalyptic festival is going to be held in the California desert this September.


  • A study says a small amount of chocolate can fight diabetes and heart disease.


  • A woman is suing Starbucks for $5 million because they put too much ice in her iced coffee drinks.  (If I had a “Worst Person” award, she would win…or maybe her lawyer!)
