Show Notes for Thursday, January 14, 2021


Dear John,

My neighbor has been my insurance agent since shortly after we moved in next door to her. We have always gotten along and I consider her a friend. Over the last few years our rates have gone up a little, but we are still happy with them. Recently my cousin started working at a competing insurance agency and is now selling insurance. She has been asking me to move my business to her. I love my cousin, but she hops from place to place quite often. I really don't want to move my stuff to her, only to have her quit and move on in a few months. I also don't want to cause any issues in the family. We all support one another quite a bit. I think I may be the last person in the family to meet with her. I had some pretty good excuses before, but they are starting to get pretty flimsy! Should I just tell her I want to wait until I know she will be there a bit before I make any changes? Who knows, she may be able to save me money, but I also have a great neighbor who has been wonderful to work with.

Signed – Good Neighbor or Good Cousin

A 28-year-old Florida man was arrested after “snoring loudly” and apparently sleeping behind the wheel in a McDonald’s drive-thru lane. The case of the dozing dude began about 3:47 a.m. when an Indian River County sheriff’s deputy went to a McDonald’s for a suspicious vehicle. A deputy spied a man in a Ford pickup parked in the outside drive-thru lane “snoring loudly.” The man seemed to be sleeping in the drive-thru lane. He eventually awakened and the deputy asked him for his license. “I don’t have one,” he is quoted as saying. His truck smelled of booze and his speech was slurred. The man, a Fort Pierce resident, participated in field sobriety exercises and was arrested on charges of DUI and knowingly driving with a suspended license. (

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

A woman on Twitter has a good idea for couples who can never agree on what to watch: “What if there was an app that both you and your partner have where you both swipe right or left on movies that are on your streaming services and when you find a match it lets you know.”

The layout of your bathroom could be causing your luck to go right down the drain. That’s according to Rohit Arya, an expert in “vaastu,” which is the Indian equivalent of Chinese “feng shui.” Arya says it’s considered extremely bad luck to have your toilet in the same room as your shower or bathtub because it supposedly pollutes the same area where you clean yourself. Vaastu practitioners say you can’t really become prosperous unless you move your toilet out of your house — or at least put it in a separate room. Since nearly all bathrooms usually combine toilets with tubs, Arya says you can reduce your bad luck by simply keeping the lid of the toilet shut whenever you’re not using it. Arya is the author of the book Vaastu: The Indian Art of Placement.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A Minnesota man got so enraged that people at his gym weren’t wearing masks, he pointed a handgun at a manager’s chest. 64-year-old Michael M. Florhaug was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon in the incident at an LA Fitness in Maplewood. Prosecutors allege assistant manager Mike Olson tackled and disarmed him after he complained to a desk employee about masks not being used by members. “I just kind of knew what had to be done,” Olson told the newspaper of disarming Florhaug. “It didn’t take much thinking. It was more of a reaction.” Florhaug told responding cops who arrested him that he wanted to get photos of people not wearing masks inside and claimed to have only “flashed the gun.” He remained jailed on $50,000 bail.(
