Show Notes for Thursday November 29, 2018


Dear John,

My wife is Christmas-crazy. Every year she out-does herself a little more. She has the tree up before Thanksgiving and leaves it up until February. I get out of the way and let her do hat makes her happy, but lately the stuff has outgrown the one room. Now we have a second tree and more Christmas stuff popping up around the house. So far it's all still inside, so I'm happy that people only know about this if we invite them in. I don't want to be a Grinch, but how do I get her to let up? I'm pretty sure she would leave this stuff up all year if I wouldn't beg her to take it down in February. Our friends think she's crazy. I don't let people in the house in late January. Is there something I should do? Or should I learn to live with it? I'm OK with it right now, but my concern is the amount of spread and growth that's happened over the last 4 years, since our kids left for college. What do you recommend?

Police say that a Lawrenceville, Georgia man was cited last month after he was caught allegedly driving more than 100 mph — in a 45-mph zone. Channel 2 Action News reported that a Duluth officer was patrolling on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard when he clocked a 2007 BMW going 118 mph and swerving around traffic. Police body camera footage shows that when he pulled the car over, the driver, identified as Kenny Hemraj, told the officer that he “just fixed a part on the car and we just wanted to make sure it was good.” Duluth police spokesman Officer Ted Sadowski said, “From officers who've worked here awhile, they've said that's probably one of the fastest they've seen.” Hemraj was arrested and cited for speeding and reckless driving. He was released on bond. (

Smoke began billowing from his belongings and when guards approached with fire extinguishers, he tried to kick them away. He was then confronted by security and he appeared to give up his hands to be arrested. The flames were extinguished by Civil Aviation Authority fire fighters before they spread. (
