As a teenager, I spent many hours in my room with headphones on listening to very loud music. Now, I get paid to do it. Still not sure how I managed that!
I grew up on a farm in Florida riding horses, motorcycles and surfing. I don't surf much anymore, but I still ride horses and motorcycles. I love nothing more than long, all day motorcycles rides. I'm sort of an adrenaline junkie and pretty much your all American girl, as happy in a pair of cowboy boots, or motorcycle boots, as I am in heels. Oh, and I'm a Gator fan. But I'll cheer for Georgia, as long as they're not playing the Gators.
I love to cook and I grow my own herbs. Not pot -- real herbs for cooking!
I love all types of music, but I think my favs are classic rock and country. They just seem to speak to me.

July 31 was National Mutt Day (yea, I know it yook me awhile to get this posted) and one Rebel listener celebrates that every day with his miniature doberman Molly Pop.
Listener Labraun called me when I was talking about National Mutt Appreciation day on the air that day and told me about his pup. To say the least, the conversation was interesting. Molly Pop only weighs 12 pounds but she's already made a big impression in the Rome area.
For starters, she has her own Facebook page and she rides on the back of a Harley Davidson, wherever her owner, Labraun, goes.
Labraun has had Molly Pop for 9 years . She's been riding on the back of his bike since he got her, starting her out on a 4-wheeler, getting her used to the movement and the sound.
Labraun has a tour pack on his Harley. Molly Pop has all the creature comforts in that tour pack, which is where she rides. Labraun caught a hole in the top of it. Milly Pop is strapped in the back, She has a heater in the winter and a fan in the summer. She also has food and water in the tour pack.
What more could a dog ask for??? Oh yea, a Facebook page. Labraun says she has more friends than he does.
He says she's the love of his life. In fact, he rescued her from the animal shelter. Labraun said, he got her the day before they would have euthenized her.
She's so cute and funny. Just a natural born comedian. Thought my listeners would like this. Her name is Mila.
Unfortunately, t this isn't a real product. I'm sorry. And darn it, I wish it was real. But we'll l just have to keep yelling “Bless Your Heart” at other drivers. Or use the old car horn if you’re feeling rude.
As we all know, with spring and summer come baby birds. But the strangest thing, a mother bird decided to build a nest in the juniper bush just adjacent to the jock entrance to our building. This is a pretty active door and it just seems like she would have picked an area with a little less activity. And we can't stop looking at the babies. The mama bird doesn't seem to mind though. It's so funny how fast these little guys are growing. We think they are North Carolina Wren.
This first picture was taken when we first discovered them this past Friday -- bald little babes with their eyes shut.
By Monday (june 25) their eyes were still closed but they were covered in this soft looking down.
By the time we got to work on Tuesday, they were starting to get their feathers.
Here's the Mama Bird on her next. She doesn't seem to really mind us being around.
Here's a picture of her that shows the babies! We check on them everyday. And I think I'm the worst!
We saw a snake outside about two weeks ago. It was huge. So we are on the lookout for the snake. The nest is kind of low to the ground, at least lower than you would expect it. We expect the little guys and girls to be flying away soon. We will miss them. It's like the most exciting thing to happen around here in awhile.
If you have any baby bird pictures where you work or life feel free to post them on our Facebook page so we all can see them!
