Smoking 170,000 Cigarettes

I love this picture.
An iron-lunged South London woman has celebrated her 100th birthday by lighting up her 170,000th cigarette from a candle on her birthday cake. The 100-year-old started smoking only days after the First World War broke out in June 1914 when she was just seven-years-old - and has gone through five a day ever since.
She has no intention of quitting, "I have smoked ever since infant school and I have never thought about quitting. There were not all the health warnings like there are today when I started. It was the done thing."
This old broad looks fun. I bet her voice sounds like Keith Richards.

Woman claims curdled cream gave her the McRuns

One day Angela Cannon of Minneapolis stopped at the Uptown McDonald's drive-thru to grab a cup of coffee with cream and sugar. She took a sip of the steamy beverage, then a gulp. It was only afterwards that she realized something was wrong--the cream was lumpy and rancid. Then, just minutes later, she says she was in the restroom, violently retching into the nearest toilet.
Angela says her reaction was so extreme that she wound up spending five days in the hospital with severe bowel problems, and even required surgery. So now, together with her husband who claims he's been deprived of her "society, companionship, and consortium," she's suing Micky D’s. She's looking at $100,000 in damages.

Meanwhile, the suits at the Golden Arches have no comment…

Something has happened to me in the last several months. I can no longer eat McDonalds without feeling queazy. The food doesn't need to be rancid to make me sick. It all pretty much makes me gag. I've eaten at Mickey D's all my life. My size became quite large. Now, after swearing off fast food - I've lost quite a bit of weight. My insides can no longer tolerate the grease, and from my new pant size - I'm happy about it.

Thanks for the mail.

Almost two weeks on the air in Wichita and all is well. The e-mails welcoming us to KFDI are overwhelming. Even after all these years, I am still amazed at the kindness of people. Each day my box is filled with greetings from KFDI regulars welcoming us into the Wichita "fold." Equally unbelievable are the mails from Central Illinois listeners who've found us on-line. The internet has certainly changed listening habits. I know that now more than ever. I am humbled at the interest in what we're doing. Brian & Kellie are simply a couple of career radio junkies, doing what we love.

My regular posts will continue soon, as I'm still unpacking boxes and learning the ropes here.
