Don’t forget the name of the person celebrating the birthday and their daytime telephone number. THANXXX! Don. News of the Weird: It’s time now for Officer Don’s Police Blotter, a service of “Holmes Security Systems…If you’re paying more than $18.95 for monitoring you’re paying too much.” Wait A Minute Mr. Robber -- Don't I Know You? In Erie, Pennsylvania, a man who was robbed of his jacket, cell phone, keys and $300 was left with the strange feeling that one of his two muggers looked awfully familiar. That would be because they went to school together about 15 years ago. Police arrested 30-year-old Anthony Williams after the victim pulled out some old yearbooks and figured out they both attended Central Career and Technical School in the mid-1990s. There's an old postal carrier's motto that says something about neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor hail will prevent the mail from being delivered. Notice it doesn't say anything about being three times the legal limit. In Boynton Beach, Florida, 29- year-old mail carrier Kevin Crocilla was found slumped over the wheel of his mail truck. Someone called police thinking there was a medical problem or perhaps he was dead. No medical problem and no -- not dead. Just very, very drunk. When police asked him to step outside of his truck, he stumbled and had trouble completing a sobriety test because he couldn't keep his eyes open or his head straight. He blew a .264 on the Breathalyzer test -- over three times the legal limit allowed while driving -- and police charged him with driving under the influence. (Sun Sentinel) It's an order of road rage -- with ranch dressing on the side. Tiffany M. Wallace is pleading guilty to ramming her pickup into a car, then throwing ranch dressing at it. The 18-year-old entered her plea in an Iowa courtroom this week as part of a deal with prosecutors. Wallace is to be sentenced Dec. 11 on a charge of aggravated battery. The Idaho Statesman reports the driver of the other car told police he was cut off twice by Wallace. He says she also threw coins and plastic containers of ranch dressing at his car. The victim adds that Wallace rammed her truck into his car at least three times in a parking lot.. In Pembrey, England, Tony and Aimee West went all out for their wedding cake. They paid $500 bucks for what was supposed to be a three tier sponge cake decorated with white and dark chocolate icing and flowers. But just four hours before the evening reception was due to start Aimee discovered the cake company had forgotten to bake the cake. Aimee said, "They admitted their mistake and said, 'Don't worry, we'll get you a cake'. They turned up that evening and the cake was put on a table for all to see." All seemed to be well until the couple cut into the cake and took their first bites together. Turns out the "cake" was no cake at all. Just a bunch of Styrofoam covered with icing. Both bride and groom began choking -- an experience Aimee said was terribly embarrassing! So they took Creative Cakes to small claims court and were awarded $600 compensation. Karen Williams, who runs Creative Cakes said, "I explained I would be delivering an artificial cake - they are quite common at weddings these days.

Our motto is “Expect Great Things To Happen.” Today’s question is “who do you ask?” If you need medical advice, you find a doctor, nurse or pharmacist, right? What about financial advice? A banker, a financial planner might be an idea. What if you win that lottery? What about goal-setting? Who do you ask? Simple. Find a successful person and ask them. You may be surprised to find how eager they are to help. Do whatever it takes to move you closer to reaching your dreams and goals.

This week marks National Truck Driver Appreciation Week A soldier opened fire at a U.S. Army base in Fort Hood, Texas, yesterday, unleashing a stream of gunfire that left 12 people dead and 31 wounded. Authorities killed the gunman, and apprehended two other soldiers suspected in what appears to be the worst mass shooting at a U.S. military base. The shooting began about 1:30pm Lt. Gen. Bob Cone said at a news conference. He said all the casualties took place at the base's Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers who are about to be deployed or who are returning undergo medical screening. "It's a terrible tragedy. It's stunning," Cone said. Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker talked life and football with wounded soldiers on Fort Bragg. The former NFL running back out of the University of Georgia teased one Longhorns fan, telling him to be proud because "Texas got a good (marching) band." But Walker - who has struggled with multiple personalities - had a serious message for the troops as well. "A lot of times things don't go right," Walker said. "And there's no shame in admitting you have a problem." In NASCAR News: Life hasn't always been easy for 4-year-old Bryce Tory, a Simi Valley youngster born with a congenital heart defect. Bryce is all smiles. He learned his ultimate wish, he will get to meet his favorite professional race car driver Sunday, Dale Earnhardt Jr. The wish was granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Tri- Counties.. Yesterday, the family was given a police and firefighter escort as they left their home for the airport. Once in Texas, they will catch a helicopter ride to the racetrack to meet NASCAR driver Earnhardt Jr. AJ Allmendinger makes his Ford Racing debut this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. The Richard Petty Motorsports driver will race the remaining three races of the 2009 season in a Ford Fusion. Race fans will recognize the familiar "Petty Blue" and red paint scheme on #44 for the rest of the season. The pressure is on in the #48 pit. To win this year's points championship, Jimmie Johnson needs to finish 10th or better in the three remaining races. The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup is down to three races to go and this weekend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth for 500 miles on Sunday. Flag-to-flag coverage of the Dickies 500 begins at on the BIG 957 WKML. A woman in South Korea who tried to pass the written exam for a driver’s license finally succeeded on her 950th attempt. The woman began taking the test in April 2005. She would take the test nearly every day, and each time she was told she flunked. Cha Sa-soon, 68, spent more than $4,200 in application fees, but until now had failed to score the minimum 60 out of a possible 100 points needed to get her license. She finally passed on Wednesday, scoring 60. The two pilots of a Northwest Airlines flight who overshot the Minneapolis airport by 150 miles and then had their licenses revoked are appealing the revocations with the National Transportation Safety Board. An NTSB spokesman said that “there is no argument or defense” included in the appeals. A hearing before an administrative judge usually occurs within 120 days of an appeal filing. Last week, government regulators revoked the licenses of Tim Cheney and Richard Cole. The pair said they lost their bearings during an October 21st flight while discussing company policy and using their laptops. They were 35,000 feet over Wisconsin when a flight attendant alerted them that they needed to hit the brakes and turn the plane around. The incident nearly got them blown out of the sky because officials on the ground were unable to raise them on their radio. Fighter jets at two locations were ready to scramble and intercept the plane. It looks like Microsoft may have redeemed itself after bombing with Windows Vista. The company’s new-generation Windows 7 operating system hit the ground running, with U.S. sales in its opening days blasting past those of its predecessor, according to NPD Group. Sales of Windows 7 in the days following its October 22nd release were 234% higher than those posted by Vista when it was released. It appears Microsoft learned a lesson after Vista bombed – and often crashed. The newest version has been getting rave reviews from analysts, thanks in large part to Microsoft’s working closely with computer makers, users and software developers while creating Windows 7. Among the new features is a redesigned taskbar for launching programs and switching windows, enhanced ability to share files with other PCs, improved photo and video editing software and the ability to stream digital music or video to other devices. Windows 7 also features Microsoft’s latest Web browser, Internet Explorer 8. New York City will host a ticker-tape parade and ceremony in honor of the World Series champion New York Yankees. The parade, scheduled for today, will begin on Broadway at Battery Place at 11 a.m. The Yankees beat the Phillies 4-2 in the series. Fans had waited nine years since the team’s previous World Series title, a Subway Series against crosstown rivals, the Mets, in 2000. Going to a movie this weekend?

The one-of-a-kind pick-up was created in celebration of the duo's farewell tour next year. It features a pull-out grill and cooler with a cooking area, keg tap, ice chest and infrared barbecue, as well as a 42-inch flat screen T-V and a sound system. It also includes a customized Brooks and Dunn license plate, silver "western" engraved door handle surrounds and black leather seats. Additional information and photos of the prototype are available at WorldCarFans.com. Covington, Bucky --- Happy Birthday to Bucky Covington, who turns 32 on Sunday. He doesn't have any memories of his and brother Rocky's original birth day, but his dad sure does. Bucky tells us, "My dad told me, the nurse comes up and goes, 'Well sir, what would you like to have? A boy or girl?' He goes, 'Well, honestly, I've got a little girl. A little boy would be great!' She goes, 'Well, congratulations! You have two of them.” Johnson, Jamie --- Jamey Johnson was the surprise musical guest at Matthew McConaughey's 40th birthday party this week. Apparently, McConaughey is a big fan of the Alabama country boy. Matthew blogged on his MySpace page, "My family, closest friends and I celebrated last night with a surprise performance by one of my favorite artists, Jamey Johnson... There were some epic stories told, lot of laughs and definitely some roasting.” --- Jamey is back to his regular tour dates now with a show tonight in Tacoma, Washington. Keith, Toby --- Look for Toby Keith's daughter Krystal to start a recording career in the near future. Toby tells us that while he doesn't get called on very much to write for other artists, he'll start collaborating with Krystal -- who graduated from Oklahoma University this past May -- on songs for her debut album "real soon. Pickler, Kellie --- Look for petite Kellie Pickler to be wielding a hammer in Sunday night's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Kellie says it's much more emotional to be a part of the show than it is to watch it on T-V, but it got even more personal when she met the family. She tells us, "After you talk to them and you really get to see who they are and what they're about, you just become so much more attached to them and you just really want to make this home the best it can be.” Extreme Makeover: Home Edition airs Sunday night at 8:00 p-m [ET] on A-B-C. Osmond, Marie --- Marie Osmond is embroiled in a court battle with a former manager who is demanding $88,000 in commission after she fired him. Osmond’s legal team claims P. Karl Engemann, who managed the star for 35 years, was let go on October 23rd for allegedly acting “in an inappropriate, improper manner and breaching his fiduciary duty to Marie.” Engemann, whose daughter Shawn is married to TV host Larry King, filed a lawsuit alleging he helped set up Marie’s lucrative Las Vegas shows with her brother Donny. Engemann filed a demand for arbitration on October 27th. Owen, Jake --- Don't forget to visit ABC.com as Jake Owen hosts the countdown to country music's biggest night -- the C-M-A Awards. The video segments began Wednesday and are posted nightly.

Rogers, Kenny --- Kenny Rogers will once again embark on his annual Christmas tour, starting November 27th in Bossier City, Louisiana and wrapping up on December 23rd in Westbury, New York. Joining Kenny for the holiday festivities will be Rebecca Lynn Howard. Underwood, Carrie --- Being a vegetarian and keeping a food journal aren't the only things Carrie Underwood does to keep fit. She tells Parade, "If I can get on a bike or the treadmill for 30 minutes, I think better, I speak better -- I'm a happier person. Regular exercise helps me sleep, too." Carrie's personal fitness goal -- "If I'm 80 and I have abs, I'll be happy.” Watch for Carrie to be showing off her great body in as many as nine dazzling dresses during Wednesday's C-M-A Awards, airing at 8:00 p-m [ET] on A-B-C. Yearwood, Trisha --- Trisha Yearwood's next cookbook, Home Cooking With Trisha Yearwood, will hit stores April 6th. Co-written with her mother Gwen and sister Beth Yearwood Bernard, the book includes 125 new recipes they solicited from aunts, uncles and cousins. Trisha tells us, "We said we weren't going to put anything in the book that we didn't make. So we've spent the last few months testing 125 recipes and eating a lot. It's been really good.” New dishes in the book include Garth's Breakfast Bowl, Cowboy Lasagna and Grandma Yearwood's Coconut Cake. Check out a picture of the book's cover can be seen on Trisha's MySpace page.
