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.

I was looking up maple syrup recipes recently and this one caught my eye. I admit I stopped and lingered on this one a very long while. An absolute genius has came up with what appears to be a perfect mix of salt and sweet and heat. Maple Bacon Party Mix.

It's courtesy notwithoutsalt.com.

Maple Bacon Party Mix

cathy party mix6 cups cereal (any combination of: different varieties of Chex, or Cheerios, Crispix and/or Shreddies - not sweetened or frosted)
1 cup peanuts, roasted and salted
6 strips of bacon, cooked extra crisp and chopped (why stop at 6?)
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
4 Tablespoons maple syrup (the darker, the more smoky maple flavour)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (depending on how spicy you like it)
1 to 1 & 1/2 teaspoons of sea salt (you may want to use less if you have table salt)

Combine the cereals, peanuts, and cayenne in a large, microwave safe bowl.

In a small bowl combine the butter and maple syrup.

Add the butter mixture to the cereal and stir very well.

Microwave on high for three minutes, stirring every minute to prevent the sugars from scorching.

Add the bacon and salt. Stir.

Let cool. Serve.

Royal Look-alikes that are astounding

After finishing season 1 finale of the Masterpiece Theatre series "Victoria" this past weekend, I started looking around online for more information about the monarchy in the 1800's. I came upon these pictures of modern day royals who bear an undeniable resemblance to some of their ancestors. Aren't they something?

If only we all had photos like these of OUR great-great-great-great ancestors to compare to.

Amazing. Lucy the puppy was born with markings on her ear that happen to be her exact likeness. Staff at the New York shelter where she was a stray hadn't noticed it. But someone who saw her picture on their website, did. Within a couple of hours of the shelter pointing it out online, Lucy was adopted. Did I already say.. amazing?!

Tom Hanks/Author/Typewriter Guy

Tom Hanks will soon be an author. Later this year he's putting out his first book, a collection of short stories called “UNCOMMON TYPE: Some Stories.” It's 17 tales, each in some way involving a different typewriter. If you didn't know this about Tom Hanks, he loves typewriters. In the way that some people have an affection for antique cars, old radios, or ancient coins, he has a thing for typewriters. There are more than 100 of them in his collection. You may be familiar with the app he launched a few years ago called "Hanx Writer." It's designed to give an experience of an old-fashioned typewriter, on an IPad. The banging of keys, the hard returns and even that bell when you get to the end of a line. And like any passionate collector he enjoys talking about them, as you'll see in the attached episode of The Late Show with David Letterman. Any time he's on a talk show, it quickly becomes apparent why he is a great "get". He's a wonderful storyteller, and he comes prepared with plenty of anectodes. If you have a few minutes (or 20, because it spans 3 segments), watch his appearance on David Letterman from 2014. Here he and Dave discuss "Hanx Writer", as well as a mutual love and apprectiation for "the typewriter".

But he's a crowd pleaser, just the same.

Watch what happens when an excitable black lab gets a hold of his owner's garden hose, and then decides he wants to play chase.
