Show Notes for Thursday, January 26, 2023


Dear John,

I Forgot How To Kiss. I had a really rough break up and I have not dated anyone for more than a year. I have wanted to and even tried a few times, but I just can't get anything going. Anyway, there is a new girl at work and I like her. I finally got the courage to ask her out and we are going out this weekend. But I'm a nervous wreck. I am scared that I forgot how to kiss. And I don't want to blow it on her. Is this a real thing or is it like riding a bike? Once you do it, does it come back naturally? I'm scared to death that I'm going to embarrass myself and end up with some kind of at-work nickname like "elephant lips" or something. Help me out, here. Do I need to practice?

Thank you,

As a young child, Bruno Mars performed as an Elvis impersonator. Mars got his start at just 4 years old.

Mars even appeared in both a 1989 documentary called Viva Elvis that showcased impersonators from around the world and in the 1992 movie Honeymoon in Vegas starring Nicolas Cage and Sarah Jessica Parker.


Dennis Quaid is the latest star to join the “Yellowstone” universe. He has joined the cast of Taylor Sheridan’s upcoming Paramount+ series “Bass Reeves”, which itself is a spinoff of the Yellowstone prequel “1883”.

The series is currently shooting in Texas, and no release date has been announced.

Jennifer Lopez experienced “a little PTSD” before marrying Ben Affleck. On “Jimmy Kimmel”, she explained that because the couple’s previous engagement “fell apart,” she kept asking herself whether their second attempt at tying the knot was “really happening”. And that explains why they decided to tie the knot in Vegas last July. J-Lo told the host: “We were so happy and, of course, it was happening, but the wedding was so stressful…One day, Ben just said…let’s just go to Vegas and get married tonight.” One month after the pair tied the knot in Sin City, they went on to wed again in front of family and friends in Georgia.

The end is almost here for the smash-hit Netflix series, “Cobra Kai.” Netflix released a new announcement video, revealing that the upcoming 6th season will be its last. Show creators are calling the next season “the biggest season of ‘Cobra Kai’ yet.” The announcement says it will be a “celebration of all that’s come, as well as all that’s still left to be told.” Netflix hasn’t revealed a debut date for the new season, but Season 5 premiered on the streamer last September.

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by


You Lose Most of Your Heat from Your Head: Where your body loses heat is closely related to surface area, and the head has only about 9% of the body’s surface area. On the other hand, if the rest of you is all covered up and your head isn’t, then you DO lose most of your heat from your head.

To Warm Up, Sip Coffee or Brandy: Caffeine and alcohol actually hinder the body’s ability to produce heat. They can also cause your core temperature to drop. Instead, drink warm water, or something with sugar.

If You Go Out in the Cold, You’ll Catch a Cold: You catch cold from a virus, not from cold temperatures.

Rub Your Fingers or Toes to Warm Them: Wiggle them instead. If exposed skin becomes cold, cover it with a warm hand until it feels better. Rubbing can cause tissue damage.

Try to Resist Shivering: Shivering means that your body is trying to warm up, and that’s good. In fact, shivering can triple your body’s heat production.

If I’m Feeling Cold, You Must Be Feeling It Too: Age, gender, fitness level and acclimatization all determine when you “feel” cold. And it’s been proven that women generally feel cold before men do, possibly because they have less heat-generating ability.

Gen Z is trying to delete your inbox. Or so it would seem. According to the CEO of Wipro, an IT firm that employs about 260,000 people around the world, 10% of his workers don’t check their email even once a month. Thierry Delaporte says he’s forced to use Instagram and LinkedIn to communicate with his Gen Z staffers because it “works better” in a world where efficiency is key. In a world of staffing shortages, and of workers quitting in droves (quiet quitting or not…) experts advise employers to create “a workplace that is more attractive” to the younger generation, including the use of alternative communication platforms. And why is it that younger workers avoid email? For one thing, the amount of spam and ads they are subjected to is enough to turn anyone off…and for another thing, a Gen Z’er is likely to be more “influenced by tools they’ve grown up with…and it may not always fit with the most commonly used tools in business”, according to another CEO.

A man who may have saved the lives of 24 people by breaking into a school in Cheektowaga NY during the “worst storm in a generation” has been given Super Bowl tickets by his hometown team. 27-year-old Jay Withey received the reward from the Buffalo Bills in collaboration with Blue Cross Blue Shield. Legendary former Bill Thurman Thomas personally delivered the surprise on Friday, telling Withey: “We love you…what you did on Christmas Eve was very heroic, and you’re our hero.” Withey broke a window of Edge Academy on in order to get 2 dozen people, including several seniors, plus 2 dogs, out of hurricane-force winds, snow, and deathly cold temperatures. He borrowed the academy’s snowblower to get some people unstuck from the roads and into the school. Once inside, he found granola bars, water, and blankets in the nurses’ office, and gathered apples, juice, and cereal from the kitchen. The group sat out the storm, and before leaving cleaned up every trace of their presence. One of the group later returned to replace the food and inquire about the cost of the window.
