Sarah Atwell's Story

Sarah Atwell doesn’t look like the other girls in her class at Avon View High School in Windsor. Tumors have dramatically changed the way she looks and for that she’s been bullied relentlessly. But Sarah is a brave young woman and she decided to tell the people who have bullied her how they’ve made her feel. She did it in the form of video that is quickly going viral. Wednesday morning at 7:30, Sarah will join Brad, Peter and Moya. Watch her video then join us tomorrow to hear her story...

Interesting?? way of protecting yourself from the sun.

If you're not a sun worshipper, you may appreciate this..

In China, some are going to extraordinary lengths to avoid getting a bit of sun with a new item of beachwear – dubbed the Facekini – causing something of a stir in the coastal tourist city of Qingdao, Shandong Province.

The masks, which look like Mexican wrestling masks, completely cover the swimmers' heads, revealing only their eyes, noses, and mouths.

Diller was Dynamite!

Ellen DeGeneres, Whoopi Goldberg and other female comedians owe a debt to Phyllis Diller. She was a nearly 40-year-old housewife when she got into standup in 1956.

Women comics weren't widely accepted then. However, Diller told reporters in 1998 that she thought being a woman actually helped her. She said she was never made to feel like she was ``a girl'' among men. Her relatives were appalled that she was working in nightclubs. She said they thought she'd gone to hell.

Golf clap deserved!!

Tom Daley a diver for Great Britain! Now he's a cutie patootie!

This is the Trailer for the Follow-Up to "Knocked Up".

"This Is 40" . . . the follow-up to "Knocked Up" . . . hits theaters in December.
I'm not sure we can call this a sequel "Knocked Up". Instead it's a movie about two of the supporting characters, Pete and Debbie . . . played by PAUL RUDD and LESLIE MANN.

--It's about how they handle marriage and parenthood as they enter their 40s. It also stars Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy, John Lithgow and Albert Brooks.

Natal Day Fireworks from King's Wharf!

Turns out what people have been saying about King's Wharf having the best Halifax harbour views are absolutely true. We got together at King's Wharf Saturday night with C100 listeners and their guests to watch the Natal Day fireworks. It was an amazing night; great conversations, tasty food and delicious wines all in the perfect setting, the model suite at King's Wharf. The fireworks just might have been the best ever and we felt like royalty enjoying a warm August night on the deck. Thanks to King's Wharf, Harvest Wines and Spirits and Jane’s on the Common for throwing the perfect, long weekend party.

Olympic Hottie!

Sam Mikulak is an American artistic gymnast. He is a member of the U.S. men's gymnastics.  He's only 19 so I'm sure we'll be seeing lots of him.
