CathyIt continues to be a new and interesting broadcasting ride for Cathy, that has come full circle here at Easy 101/Country 107-3.

Born and raised in Ingersoll in a big family among 5 brothers, Cathy landed her first full-time radio job here as fledgling news reporter.

It wasn't long before Cathy's career forayed into television, where she worked for more than 15 years as a successful anchor, host, reporter and producer. Her stops include tv stations in Wingham, Pembroke, Edmonton , Ottawa and Hamilton . Most recently, Cathy could be seen co-hosting CHCH Hamilton's Morning Live.

Finally saying a fond goodbye to broadcast news and moving back to our area to be closer to family and home, Cathy accepted an opportunity to add a new dimension to her broadcasting career as an on air personality with us. Cathy can be heard on both Country 107.3 and Easy 101. She is really enjoying this new role. She says her listeners are like friends – "Its great to just talk and share with them."

In her spare time, Cathy loves spending time with her husband and her dog, traveling, watching movies, trying new cookie recipes, painting, skiing and catching live music.


What's red and white, and yellow all over?

One of our favourite people here at the station, our Administrative Assistant Tara Driver.. is a vital contributor to today's blog. Tara has been keeping me posted on a garden project she started last fall. She bought some of the Canada 150 tulip bulbs that went on sale last fall, and planted them in her flower bed. As you have probably heard, not all of the white and red tulip bulbs people have purchased are coming up our national colours. For whatever reason, some gardeners have been getting oranges, pinks and yellows instead. Perhaps that's a botanical metaphor for our multicultural character showing through? Anyway, Tara did end up with some lovely white, red.. and yellow.. tulips. So pretty. Thanks Tara!

Many Moms will say, the best Mother's Day experiences involve spending time with family. Don't misunderstand, she still wants you to fuss over her and treat her for the day, but ideally it happens while she gets to spend time with her loved ones. Here's an activity that Mom and your whole family will enjoy. It's called Mother's Day Match Game. If you've ever watched The Newlywed Game, it's a similar formula. The same set of questions are asked of the kids, that are asked of Mom.. all having to do with her, and her interests. You might even do up cards with the answers, just like on the game shows.

Here's hoping you and Mom get lots matches. And don't forget to treat Mom like the Queen that she is!

MOTHER'S DAY MATCH GAME
(from The Randy Lane Company's Content Ideas Newsletter.)

Setup: Ask mom 4-6 basic questions about herself and her likes and dislikes, then challenge one of her children to predict what mom's answer's were:

Her favorite song
Her favorite food
Her favorite movie
Her favorite actor
What's her favorite TV show?
What was the last movie she saw?
What was her biggest present for Christmas?
Who did she spend her last overnight away from home with?

 

So dumb he could throw hisself on the ground and miss!

Recently my husband and I did some traveling through the southern U.S. We had great time looking at the sights, enjoying the food, and listening to that slow-as-molasses southern drawl. On one of our stops at the Dinner Bell in Sweetwater, Tennessee.. the back of our breakfast menu provided us with some local lingo. I love this stuff. (and after we got our feedbag on, we felt fatter'n ticks!)

Cathy WegnerThis was a random sighting on one of my drives recently. A pretty parrot, as proud as anything to be perched up on it's owner's shoulder. And he was enjoying all the looks. He even glanced back and posed for me as took his picture.

Good thing dogs don't expect to be walked this way.

Maybe its a coping mechanism with the lack of sunshine, or some sort of weird spring cabin fever thing.. ???

I find myself on Youtube a lot lately, looking up some of the best "bits" from televised comedies of years past. This week I was reminded that it's the one year anniversary of the death of Ronnie Corbett. He was one of England's most beloved comedic entertainers of the 70's and 80's, best known as one half of "The Two Ronnies". That, led me on one of those searches I mentioned. I hope you enjoy this from about 7 years ago. At the time it was remarkably current material. It will be cathartic for anyone who finds cellphone technology challenging.
