  • I’m going to assume that the creators of this show must be from New York. It is my opinion that drinking alcohol when a major storm is approaching is a wrong message to broadcast. You need to be alert and able to move in the event something happens. Wonder what these two men would do if their apartment had no electricity, no air condition, and all you can do is listen to the wind howl and objects hitting the windows. I realize not everyone was in the direct path of the hurricane but I found your continued joking about having cocktails and cleaning your house not very funny.

  • Boy, talk about being prepared for ANYTHING !!
    So as a Californian, I was wondering what cocktail you suggest for an earthquake. And now that you have recently experienced one, you can really relate. Probably something shaken not stirred. But I bet you could come up with something more clever than I can. I sent this to several friends who are still in the throes of Irene. I felt bad I didn't see it in time to send it when they were in their emergency preparedness mode !!! :~))) Thanks for putting fun into everything

  • Trying to locate Chris Hosselt of Living Today to find out the name of the "Millionaire" book they were talking about from 1:30 - 2:00 pm on 12/22/11. Please help. Thank you!
