Show Notes for Thursday, February 4, 2021


Dear John,

My husband is driving me crazy! About a year ago, we both started working from home. He's in one room and I'm in another, but we see each other all the time. His job is not as demanding as my job, so he comes in and hangs out in my office when I'm trying to get things done. The other day he walked in during a Zoom meeting and distracted me when I was supposed to be in a meeting. I asked him to give me some space when I'm working. I even locked the door, but then he asked if I had something to hide. I don't! I just need to get work done before I get to goof around. Anyone have advice for me? I need to find a way to draw the line without looking like I'm being mean. I love my husband, I just don't want to get in arguments over this dumb stuff anymore. How do I fix this?

A man from Cocoa is facing charges after he admitted to stealing a company's tow truck as revenge for the time they towed his car. According to a report, Florida Highway Patrol troopers received a tip that a tow truck had been stolen out of Orange County. After midnight, one trooper spotted the stolen “Car Store Towing” vehicle driving north on I-75. According to the report, the trooper pulled the truck over and spoke with 30-year-old Aimee Onggo. Onggo admitted to stealing the truck. A search of Onggo and the truck resulted in the recovery of methamphetamine, Xanax and hydrocodone. Onggo was arrested and charged with grand theft auto and three counts of possession of a controlled substance. He remains in the Alachua County Jail with a $50,000 bail. (

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

Microsoft is hoping to use artificial intelligence to create chat bots that mimic real, deceased people. Microsoft has filed a patent for software “creating a conversational chat bot of a specific person” based on “images, voice data, social media posts, electronic messages, written letters,” and any other so-called “social data.” It wouldn’t be limited to deceased loved ones — you could also create a chat bot for a favorite fictional character, a living friend or celebrity, or even yourself. Since Microsoft has yet to create a prototype (that we know of), plenty of details are still up in the air; and the capabilities of each chat bot will likely depend on how much “social data” exists.

An Arkansas woman won a $1 million jackpot from a scratch-off lottery ticket that she only bought due to a store clerk’s error. Carrie Middlebrook (of Bono) said she went to Jordan’s Kwik Stop to buy an item her husband had forgotten to pick up on his way home. While in the store, Middlebrook decided to buy some lottery tickets and asked for a $2 scratch-off ticket, two $10 tickets and a 5-Buck Bundle ticket. She also ended up with a $20 $1 Million Spectacular ticket accidentally when the clerk misheard her request. The player scratched the $20 ticket off in her car and was stunned to reveal a $1 million top prize. Middlebrook said she drove home and called her husband to come outside and meet her at the car. He recalled: “When I opened Carrie’s car door, she was crying and shaking. I thought she had hit a deer.”

A Texas zoo is offering jilted lovers the chance to get some Valentine’s Day revenge by naming a cockroach or a rat after their exes before it is fed to a larger animal. The San Antonio Zoo said scorned lovers can pay $5 to have a cockroach named after their ex before it is served to a larger zoo animal as a meal. The zoo said someone looking to make a stronger statement can pay $25 to name a frozen rat for their former lover before it is fed to a snake. Last week we told you about The Bronx Zoo bringing back its Name a Roach promotion, where you can name a Madagascar hissing cockroach after a loved one (or hated one) in exchange for a $15 donation. You even get a snazzy digital certificate. For $75 you can get The Works: A roach plush, a roach candle, a printed certificate with the roach’s name, and a very crawly February 14th Valentine’s Virtual Encounter with a Madagascar hissing cockroach and a surprise animal guest.

A Florida paramedic praised just weeks ago as the best in his field has been arrested for his role in stealing three doses of the coronavirus vaccine. Joshua Colon, a 31-year-old paramedic and training officer for Polk County Fire Rescue, was arrested Monday on charges including forgery, official misconduct, uttering a forged instrument, and criminal use of a personal ID. Colon, who resigned last Friday, allegedly helped a captain steal three doses of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine and then forged screening and consent forms. He later told detectives he was instructed to do so by his supervisor — who “joked” with him that day to get vaccines for his mother, an arrest affidavit shows. An investigation is ongoing into the alleged role of Colon’s supervisor in the theft. Less than two weeks prior to his arrest, Colon was honored as 2020’s “Paramedic of the Year” by a group of local nonprofit civic clubs for outstanding service to the community, including his actions during a serious multi-vehicle wreck on a state highway.(
