Gas prices are still out of control, and it looks like that's not changing anytime soon. So this summer, more and more people are ditching their SUVs and flight plans and riding the rail. Here are the top 5 reasons to take the train . . .

#1.) IT'S CHEAPER. If you're planning to book a flight . . . especially a short flight . . . you may want to reconsider. A train ticket to the same destination can save you hundreds of dollars. AND you can check up to three bags for free.

#2.) MORE FLEXIBILITY. Are you sick of the stress that comes with trying to make your flight? Well, trains provide much more flexibility . . . And many times, if you miss your train, another one is on its way.

#3.) TRAINS ARE MORE COMFORTABLE. The legroom on airplanes seems to be getting smaller and smaller, but trains offer much more room. You can even reserve a private bedroom for long trips. And there are no seatbelt signs.

#4.) IT'S BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. Trains are more energy-efficient than planes OR cars . . . And carbon emissions from trains are far less damaging to the environment.

#5.) IT'S AN EXPERIENCE IN ITSELF. Most people consider both flying and driving to be a chore . . . but the train can be a lot of fun. Instead of flying from point A to point B, you can enjoy the scenery while you relax. (MSNBC)

Hey it's Nazzy,

Ok, show of hands, who has had summer plans ruined this year because of the rain!! (My hand is up).
I can't even begin to tell you how many outdoor events I was set to DJ this summer have been canceled or postponed due to weather.. Just not fun!!
On a personal note, I have been trying for about 3 weeks now to stain & weather seal my front porch & new fence.. But, mother nature just doesn't want to lend a hand! LOL!
Oh well, you know what they say about the weather in New England - If you don't like it, wait a minute it will change! I have been waiting for a few months now & still nuttin'!! -- LOL!! -- Nazzy



"The Dark Knight" just passed $400 million. So it's time to figure out what your guy's favorite superhero says about his personality. Here are FOUR of the most popular characters, and what they say about your man . . .
#1.) SUPERMAN is the classic NICE GUY. He's loyal and wants to save the day, and guys who idolize him often have the same traits . . . which means he's more willing than most guys to put up with your annoying habits. But that doesn't mean he only wants to save YOUR day. So don't get jealous when he ignores you and turns his attention to friends or family members.

#2.) SPIDER-MAN is the UNDERDOG. He's sensitive, responsible, and a little nerdy . . . so your guy might have a hard time being relaxed and spontaneous.

#3.) THE HULK obviously has ANGER ISSUES. He changes from reserved Bruce Banner into a big green monster when he loses control. So your guy tends to let his feelings get the better of him. --But remember, even when he loses his cool, his heart is still in the right place.

#4.) BATMAN is a RENEGADE. Your guy probably wishes he drove a cooler car and dated supermodels. And he's VERY secretive. Your man might have that same DANGEROUS appeal . . . but getting him to open up COULD be a real challenge.

Finally...The New Roundabout!

Hey, It's AJ!
Well this is interesting! You know that really confusing intersection in Concord, where Centre Street meets Liberty Street meets Auburn Street? If you've ever been through this area, you know what I'm talking about. Do you yield, do you stop...where do you stop...who has the right of way? Well, they're finally fixing it. They're building a roundabout, something they should have done a long time ago!

Ashley @ Night's Catnip Crazy Cat

Hey It's Ashley!

So when I came home from my 2nd night at JYY, I had a surprise waiting for me. Everything seemed normal, but I saw one of my kitchen cabinets was open. I thought I had just forgot to close it before I left for work. Well, much to my surprise, I didn't.

When I continued walking down the hall, I saw this:

This is my cat Lucas rolling in a pile of catnip. The catnip is kept on the top shelf in a cabinet in my kitchen. He somehow managed to open the cabinet, climb up to the top shelf, drag to cup down the hall, open the lid, and enjoy said catnip.

How? I have no idea... but I'm installing hidden cameras so I can capture this next time and submit it to America's Funniest Home Videos (if it's still on...)

I'll make sure to post it when it happens.



Guys . . . I have some bad news. A recent survey in Japan found that nearly NINE in TEN women in their 20s and 30s . . . think that older guys smell bad. And, unfortunately, it seems like they might be on to something. Why? --Because as we get older, our bodies produce more of a certain fatty acid called TWO-NONENAL . . . which increases body odor. --So what should you do if you're worried you have "Old Man Smell" . . . and you want to cut down on the amount of Two-Nonenal your body produces?

#1.) Try to reduce your stress (--easier said than done . . . I know).
#2.) Stop overeating.

#3.) Cut back on drinking. (Australian)

(Didn't this survey talk to men who take showers & wear calogne?? - Nazzy)

- Don't worry, we did find a brand of chewing gum called "Gum-O-Flage" that claims it can reduce body odor. You can buy a pack of that stuff for $5 here . - No promises & use at your own risk!!

Have you ever heard of "Used-Date Parties"? Basically, the idea behind these parties is that each woman brings an ex-boyfriend . . . to swap with other women in attendance.
Apparently, used-date parties, which are also known as "Bring Your Old Boyfriend" parties, aren't that new of a concept . . . but we hadn't heard of it, so we thought it might be new to you, too.

--It sounds like a pretty bizarre way to get a date, right? But here's the upside:

#1.) Everyone at a used-date party is available and looking for a date.

#2.) Every guy has been vouched for by at least one other woman at the party (--of course, they are exes . . . so I suppose the endorsement only means so much.

#3.) Your ex knows you pretty well . . . so they could be a valuable resource in helping choose who your next partner will be. (Chicago Tribune)

(--Apparently, this is the premise of a new reality TV show on Bravo called "Date My Ex: Jo & Slade" . . . where Slade is trying to hook up his ex, Jo, with another guy.) (--If this show sounds interesting to you, you can learn more about at: )
-- I think this might be a good idea.. I am going to look into this!! It might be fun! Stay tuned -- Nazzy


Do you remember how different things were back before you had a cell phone? Well we came across a survey which asked people to name the one technological gadget that changed their life the MOST. Here are the top ten life-changing gadgets:

#10.) Video game consoles

#9.) Microwave

#8.) Upright Vacuum Cleaner

#7.) Washing Machine

#6.) DVD Player

#5.) Satellite Navigation Systems (--like the GPS system in your car)

#4.) Digital Camera

#3.) MP3 Player

#2.) Laptop Computer

#1.) Cell Phone (--Nearly ONE in FOUR people named the cell phone as the most life-changing gadget . . . including 42% of people between the ages of 16 and 24.)

(Daily Telegraph / Which?)
- What gadget can't you live whithout?? Sound off!! -- Nazzy
