A big "Thank-you" to Ed Vos for filling in for the vacationing Van Harden today!  Van will be back tomorrow morning.  Ed wears many hats...he does stand-up comedy for corporate meetings and parties, he does acting for movies and commercials and he has a day job - Ed is the Director of the Dallas County Veterans Affairs Commission.  Ed will once again be holding an event for Veterans with all of the Veteran's benefits and health issues organizations on November 1st, 10AM-2PM at the Veteran's Reception Center in Van Meter.  The event is for all veterans and is free of charge.  To talk to Ed about Veteran's issues, call 515-993-5809.  Even if you're not from Dallas County, Ed can help you find the right person in your county.  To talk to Ed about booking him as a comedian, go to http://edvos.homestead.com/

Also joining me this morning were Kenan Judge and Tara Deering-Hansen of Hy-Vee.  Kenan is the Director of the Meat Department for all of Hy-Vee.  He was successful in buying the Grand Champion 4-H Market Steer, the Grand Champion FFA Market Hog and the Grand Champion 4-H Market Lamb from the Iowa State Fair, and Hy-Vee is giving all that meat back to the community!  Kenan said the steer should net about 550 lbs. of beef...the hog should net about 150 lbs. of pork...and the lamb should net about 67 lbs.   There will be one winner of each animal with Hy-Vee cutting and wrapping the meat for you and delivered to the Hy-Vee Store nearest you!  Enter by going to www.whoradio.com and then be listening for your name on September 3rd at 7:10AM.  You'll need to call within 10 minutes, 40 seconds to claim your prize!  

Ed and I found out this morning from a "fun facts" sheet that your shoes are the first thing people subconsciously notice about you...so wear nice shoes!  If you sit for more than 11 hours a day, there's a 50% chance you'll die within the next 3 years....move around!  There are at least 6 people in the world who look exactly like you and there's a 9% chance that you'll meet one of them in your lifetime.  Putting dry tea bags in gym bags or smelly shoes will absorb the unpleasant order.  You can survive without eating for weeks, but you will only live 11 days without sleeping! 

Have a wonderful day!
