I've always been "Halloween challenged." I'm not super creative with costumes and parties, never enjoyed dressing up as a kid (yes I know, it sounds like I had a strange childhood...you're right!), but I love scary movies! Buzzfeed.com has put together30+ Facts About Halloween Movies That Will Blow Your Mind! For example, could you imagine Tom Cruise as Edward Scissorhands?
Emily Urbik, wife of Bills' Lineman Kraig, takes us to a Bills Halloween party! She dishes on which players had great costumes and which - including her husband - faked it. She also shows what it's like to be sitting in the stands when your husband gets hurt, and how in a very short time she absolutely loves living in Buffalo.
Taylor Swift's 2013 RED TOUR will hit 45 cities with both arena and stadium shows. But Buffalo isn't one of them...Click here for tour dates.Rob Lucas says...don't give up hope on a Buffalo show! There's a lot of open space on this schedule. Taylor is in Toronto June 15th, but has two weeks off before that, and a full week free afterward. It's very possible she could add a Buffalo date in that empty time. Keep your fingers crossed...stranger things have happened!
Hot off his SNL appearance, Bruno Mars checks into Star 102.5 with happening stories about the recording of "Unorthodox Jukebox," the brotherhood of his band (did you know his drummer is his brother?) and his ultra-cool selection of hats.
I have never missed an opportunity to give my opinion and vote in our elections. This year I am so dissapointed in both candidates that I'm not sure I will get off my couch and go vote. Pathetic I know, but really....
Garden is closed, ponds are closed. There are a hand ful of things to put away, but the garden looks sad. I keep looking at all the pictures i took....not working. Now I will just have to wait for the seed catalogs to arrive so I can start salivating at what I will grow next year. BTW I am still eating home grown tomatos-Holla!
If you love dogs, you MUST get yourself a copy of the In The Company Of Dogs holiday catalog. Yes, we've just given you the online link, but this is one of those catalogs that is better to have in your hand. Kind of like a SkyMall catalog, but 100% dedicated to dogs and their owners. Tons of things inside that I truly haven't seen anywhere else. I'm giving In The Company Of Dogs the Rob Lucas Seal Of Approval!
Amanda Barnett, wife of Bills LB Nick Barnett joined us this morning and told us what it's been like to live in two of the most rabid NFL cities, Green Bay and Buffalo. Buffalo fans, you'll love what she has to say about our city! We also hit on the problems the defense is facing, Nick's never ending tweeting and game study, and balancing an NFL life with 3 kids, and 3 dogs. She is also chairperson of Slowfoodbuffaloniagara.org, which is helping establish school gardens in the area. A very cool endeavor!
The Buffalo Common Council will hear a proposal today on a new retractable roof stadium. Pretty exciting. Check outThe Buffalo News article. You would think sports fan and harbor development fan Rob Lucas would be totally in favor of this. But not so fast! Listen...
It's not an official endoresmet for ECC, but I enjoy seeing Dr. John Marzo's (Buffalo Bills Medical Director) commercial about the facility. Dr. Marzo some years ago set my son's broken arm twice, once after "riding" down the stairs of our home in a cardboard box, and second (not long after the first) when my son tried to jump over a fire hydrant on his bicycle!
