Road RageRoad Rage Is Not Healthy!

This story will prove that we all need to calm down behind the wheel.

48-year-old Joseph H. Carl of Gainesville, Florida was driving home from a bar in his pickup truck on Tuesday night, when he rear-ended a car stopped at a red light.  That sent him into uncontrollable road rage.

He got out of his truck, ran up to the other driver’s car, and started banging on the windows.  Obviously the guy was freaked out, so he sped off.

But it turns out Joseph hadn’t put his truck in “park.”  It was standing still because it was still smashed into the car . . . but when the other guy took off, Joseph’s truck started rolling . . . and he got RUN OVER by his own truck.

He wound up with a broken hand, a broken foot, and a DUI.

A Man Drops 140 Pounds . . . By Working at McDonald’s?

Want to permanently lose your desire to eat fast food?  Here’s the best way we can think of:  Work at a FAST FOOD place, and see what it looks like before it’s served.

27-year-old Colin Moore of Durham, England managed to lose 140 pounds in a year . . . by working at McDonald’s.

By being at McDonald’s, constantly smelling their burgers and being around the food as it was prepared IMMEDIATELY turned him off of fast food.

It inspired him to switch his diet to things like fruit, lean meat, rice cakes, chicken, and vegetables.  He lost 18 pounds in his first month as a McDonald’s employee . . . and now, just a little over a year later, he’s down 140 pounds and weighs 203.

He’s still working at McDonald’s . . . although now that his story is getting some press, I can’t imagine their PR department is going to want him working there much longer.

Here are some before and after photos of Colin.

Wet Nose Wednesday – Chino

Every Wednesday at 8:40, Guardian Angel Pet Rescue joins the Mike and Mandy show to showcase a special animal that needs a good home.

This week’s featured pet is Chino.

IMG_3488

Chino is a 1-2 year old male Shih Tzu that weighs 23 pounds. Chino has had a rough life so far and is looking for person with a big heart that would like to show him that there are good people out there. His previous family stuck in him the yard and did nothing but give him food and water. His fur became so matted that it took a week of careful, slow snipping to get it loose. The mats were so tight that they drew Chino’s fur up, painfully… On top of this when he was attacked by a dog (no doubt a big one) injuring his eye and the owner failed take him to the vet. This was Chino’s condition when he was rescued. Since then Chino had his eye operated on, it had to be removed as it had gotten infected but is now healing well. Because Chino was left out during thunder storms he is afraid of loud noises. In the last few weeks Chino has blossomed, becoming a sweet, loving little guy that likes to play with small dogs (he’s afraid of big dogs). His fur has not yet grown in enough for him to be groomed properly but he will look very cute once a little more time has passed. Since he has been blind in 1 eye since it was injured he is used to this and it does not hamper his activities at all. Chino can’t wait to find his new forever home and be shown the love, care and attention he has never received prior to being rescued!

If you would like to adopt this week’s dog…please click here to fill out an electronic adoption form.
