Good Morning!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a good start.  Here's what you missed on today's show.

 

The Morning Brain Buster:

Q.   According to a new survey, 1 out of 3 married women were disappointed in this. What?

A.   How the were proposed to!

 

Bonehead Of The Day:

A man in Augusta, Maine was angry because the city wouldn't let a Dunkin' Donuts open, so??  He put toilets in his yard. 

A developer wanted to buy his house for top dollar and tear it down to make room for a Dunkin' Donuts. But the deal was shot down by the city's Planning Board.

The man was upset so he put five toilets in his yard, with yellow and pink flowers growing inside them.

He's also put up a sign saying he wants 60 to 70 more toilets to fully show how he feels.

20,000 Bees in Woman's Attic

Wildlife Trappers in Florida were called to a 98-year-old woman's house to get rid of several rodents. They ended up finding 20,000-30,000 bees living in her home.

The colony of bees had been there for about a year, but the woman said she had no idea they were around.

The Wildlife crew used a vacuum to get rid of the bees and will take them to a different location. They also set up traps to catch the rats and squirrels living in her attic. They will have to make more trips back since rats reproduce every few weeks.

The woman said the bees never bothered her and she never saw them.... even when she was outside.

(Cool Idea) Jilted Bride Turns Her Wedding Into A Party For People With Disabilities

A woman in North Dakota had a rough time after her ex-fiancé called off their planned wedding.

She's doing something positive.... using the wedding arrangements to throw a party for people with disabilities.

The woman and her family had already spent thousands of dollars and signed contracts for a ballroom, flowers, photographers, limousines and music from a local band when her fiancé called her up and canceled their wedding, which was scheduled for this week.

She found out she would still have to pay for all of the wedding services, even after canceling the ceremony. So she and her family decided to transform the planned wedding into a Halloween party for the clients of Creative Care for Reaching Independence, a nonprofit with the goal "to enhance and enrich the lives and learning of people with disabilities."

Sober Student Suspended For Driving Her Drunk Friend Home From A Party

 A 17-year-old high school senior from Massachusetts drove to a party to pick up her friend who was too drunk to drive, and was punished for it.

She lost her title as volleyball team captain, and was also suspended for five games.

Authorities busted the underage drinking party and warned the 15 students there that they would be called to court for drinking.

The sober girl was called to court, but an officer vouched for her being sober.

That didn't change the school's decision to punish her for her friend's behavior, so her mother has filed a lawsuit over the incident.

The parents of her teammates are also forming a petition to support her.

Dogvacay.com.. Connects Vacationing Animal Owners With Safe & Affordable Sitters

There is a website that helps pet owners find safe and affordable sitters who live locally.

DogVacay.com was launched last year and helps pet owners find sitters so they don't have to put their dogs in kennels. 

Boarding fees which include free pet insurance, 24-hour customer support and daily photo updates start at $25 a night, with the website taking a 10 to 15% cut.

And to make sure dogs gets enough one-on-one attention, the site limits the number of dogs a sitter can host to just three at a time.
