I live in a 100 year old home in Erieville. My favorite hobby is work on that old house and it keeps me busy. This year, I put on a new porch floor and fixed the siding outside and put in a new floor upstairs. It was too much for me to tackle, but usually I try and do my own work with some help from friends and family. I am a single Mom with three beautiful children. They are all country music fans. I have been in radio for many years and in fact, my mother was a radio personality. I guess that is where I get it from. I get a real kick out of doing charity work and attend many of the events here in CNY. I would have to say that the CMA win was the high point in my career. It just doesn't get any better than that and it is thanks to you who listen to us and support us each and every morning. It wouldn't have happened without you. In my mind, it was a win for Central New York. I love working with Tom Owens. We have quickly become best friends.

My youngest went to the junior prom Saturday night. He was invited to the Fayetteville-Manlius prom. We all went over to one of the kids houses to take pictures before they left. The kids had chipped in to get a limo for the evening. I was not alone when I say how emotional it was for me. He looked so handsome in his tux. It was in the moment I realized that my boy has become a man. Tucker now drives and even saved and bought an old pick-up truck. He works part-time and is very diligent in his goals in life. He knows he wants to be a mechanic after college. I feel him sliding away into adulthood. I am glad to see he is flying...but it breaks my heart to think of him no longer as my baby. I guess I am the one who has to let go. - Becky
When it comes to cheating, we all have different interpretations of what that means. For example, apparently as you get older, the less you see kissing someone other than your partner cheating. A HuffPost/YouGov poll found that 74% of those 18-29 consider it cheating if their partner kissed someone else on the lips. Only 53% of those ages 30-44, 38% of 45-64 year-olds, and 30% of those 65 and older felt that way. Just Asking … Do you consider kissing cheating? Has that changed as you’ve gotten older? Does it matter what kind of kiss it is? - Becky
We saw this and just couldn't help but say "AWW!"
This woman's animal hospital is fostering six kittens. This is "the runt" in his favorite safe spot. ADORABLE!
I had the privledge of meeting Will McKinney, Seargeant, in the Army with the 10th Mountain Division, 2-87 Infantry this past week-end. He threw out he first pitch at the wounded warriors week-end at the baseball stadium. I escorted him to pitchers mound and got to hang out with him for awhile. I am writing about him because he inspired me. I have met a lot of stars over the years...Reba, Tim, Garth, Zac Brown...so many. This young man was the one that has inspired me the most though. Will had his leg blown off in Afghanistan. He said it took awhile to get his spirit back...but boy did he get it back. He was literally running out to the Pitchers Mound with such a lively spirit, that I could hardly keep up with him. He is turning his life into a wonderful story. He is a student at OCC and studying hard. He is a handsome young man with such a bubbly personality...he just took me by suprise. I will never forget how he changed me. Thanks Will. - Becky
On Thursday, authorities were searching for two passengers believed to have gone overboard on a cruise ship off Australia's east coast.
The pair wasn't discovered missing until the Carnival Spirit docked in Sydney, wrapping up a ten night cruise. The 30 year old man and 26 year old woman were traveling with family and friends.
The ship's surveilance cameras captured the couple on deck and it's believed they went overboard from the boats mid-deck level on Wednesday night, but it's not clear if they fell or jumped.
In a statement, Carnival said there was no evidence of foul play, but they dclined to disclose the details about what actually happened to the couple out of respect for the families.
I'm thinking that I wouldn't want to take a cruise with Carnival. -Becky
