I'm from Hong Kong and I just wanna say how much I love your show. Locals don't get sarcasm much nor do they have that much of a sense of humor, so it's great to hear u guys every moment I can.

Oh and, I would SO rather have a surprise gift from my man! I don't wanna seem like I'm demanding that he give me a certain thing or else....

Also, what he gives me also showshow much he knows me and what kind of man he is; a "keeper" or a "see yah round" type of guy! LOL! JK!

Anyway, I really love your show!

Hey Guys...I was listening this morning to Mark Suppelsa talking about his famous you tube video but that was the first time I heard about it. I tried to remember the name but by the time I got to work, I forgot. Can you please tell me the name of the video again please. Thank you and I love your show!!!!!

Thank you Eric and Kathy for what you're doing for the CMN Hospital in Chicago. I work with Dance Marathon at Loras College in Dubuque, IA and we work with the University of Iowa Children's Hospital. It's great to hear local celebrities are supporting such a great cause. Again, thank you for helping all of the Miracle families in the Chicago area. God bless. And remember who it's for, it For The Kids!

Eric & KathyFriday, 04/13/2012 09:15am
Kathy, I totally agree about the beginning of 50 Shades of Gray. I thought it wasn't even written well- but wait!!!! I don't know who told you chapter 6 was good???? Read chapters 8 and 9!!!! OMG

Jane Lynch gets my vote for most famous. Billy Gardell is second!
Dang I wish I knew someone famous...does it count that I was caught on the news years ago for buying fireworks in Indiana? The reporter was a lady from one of our local channels. I bought freakin sparkles and she acted like I bought grenades. As i was heading to my car, she said Ma'am your from Illinois. how easy was it to buy fireworks outta state and I sadi "Piece of Cake."

Reguarding "The worst thing about your girlfriends getting married". It seems to always be about the women. What about the guys? Well , here's what... Being a guy , I hate it. When I was in my 20's all my girlfriends were getting married , but it wasn't to me. So I said "No more girlfriends and got married. Had 2 children , then she left me. Now here's the funny part... All my girlfriends now , are getting divorced. :-O

I went to school with Melissa and am a former co-worker of hers as well so tell her Chris and Carol said HEY! I was listening this morning and was cracking up because I remember those days at R-Way in Portage! That song was the best "All-Skate" song! Great Job Melissa! I was dancing on the train while listening to her sing! So much fun, back in the day!

Nick FalcoWednesday, 11/09/2011 09:16am
Go Melissa!! Slap on those roller skates & SHOW us what you got!!! Great job!

Karen SchultzTuesday, 11/08/2011 07:17am
To get back to your guy and gal roles.
The first 5 years we both worked and took turns at cooking and cleaning.
We agreed that we would have traditional marriage roles the first 30 years and when the last child went off to college we would reverse rolls. I got married at 18 and went back to college when our children were in school and studied while they were at school or sleeping. I started up small companies to pay for college as I went....cleaning, arts and crafts, etc. My husband semi retired, has a morning job and golfs when he can. He still does the carpentry, makes things, remodels and sometimes I help. I work at a job I enjoy and travel. He is not a big traveler so I get my fix through work. He cooks. It is good.

JenMonday, 11/07/2011 08:32am
Hi just letting you know that my son and I listen everyday while on the way to school. My 11 yr old love listening to you we crack up alot!!

One knows that our life seems to be not cheap, but we require cash for various things and not every one gets big sums money. Therefore to receive some mortgage loans and collateral loan would be a right solution.

Heard AJ + Ramiro mention my old building in Mount Prospect as a possible ghost site. Some of my staff HAVE heard footsteps from 2nd floor when building is empty! It was an spooky-looking hospital back in 1929. Who knows how many ghosts might still be here from that! Vista Linda VISION CENTER at 111 W. Prospect Ave across from Mt.

Hi Eric & Kathy
Saw one of your guest news guys - Mark Suppelsa cheering on the Green Bay Packers at the game today. He tried wearing a Blackhawk shirt to cover himslef but was high-fiving with the rest of his friends all wearing packer jerseys. I guess they did not have any news jobs avaioable in Green Bay??

alexg120Friday, 09/09/2011 07:04am
Very nice site!

LoriTuesday, 08/23/2011 11:35am
Wow - Whip & Melissa dancing. I thought I had no rhythm. I could dance the night away compared to that!

sofiaTuesday, 08/16/2011 09:12pm
Just wanted to say love love your show! Just wanted to add a tip for the Oreo balls, only half a package of cream cheese should be used so there will be no need to put in freezer. Putting them in freezer causes moisture therefore the chocolate does not adhere nor soak into the balls. Also they should not be larger than a 25cent gumball. I make them all the time and my friends luv them. The only time I regrigerate them is if I use dark chocolate becuase it is softer and needs to be cooled to harden.
Off topic I just wanted to add that every year I divide half the money I am going to spend on christmas gifts for my nieces and nephews and make a donation to St. Judes. I let the kids know, they are in total agreement and are happy to share with those in need. I think this year I will make that donation to childrens memorial hospital since it is closer to home. Oh and all the change I am collecting will also be donated. Thank you so much for backing such a worthy cause.

HuhTuesday, 08/09/2011 10:02am
Seems to be typos and random capitalization in the Oreo balls recipe...and yes Oreo is a brand name so it gets capitalized in this case.

LauraSaturday, 08/06/2011 10:54am
Awesome videos, loved it! Not reallyyyy sure that was dancing though, hmmmmm lol....

LorenaTuesday, 07/26/2011 08:50am

You go Whip! You did good putting your foot down!

SusieWednesday, 07/20/2011 07:56am
Heard your convo about how hot girls go geek. I chased my husband of 1 year. He was into a civil war reenacting, the foam fighting club and now we're going to comic con this weekend and I'm dressing up like a battlestar galactica soldier...and yes I am a hot girl. I tried out for america's top model and got to the second round. He was just too sweet to pass up

Marianne LawlerTuesday, 07/12/2011 07:27am
I can't call in because I'm at work. My son was 11 pounds 4 ounces. The doctors had no idea he would be that big. Being my second, the labor went much faster. I had NO drugs! Of course, he's my youngest! He is now 21 and 6 foot 4 inches!

Michele Thursday, 06/30/2011 08:36am
Ok.just have 2 comment. I knew my husband was the Guy when I got food poisoning and was barfing. I called him sobbing and he came over and held my hair while I barfed my guts out.

KristinMonday, 06/20/2011 10:55pm
Hey Eric and Kathy!

So I was listening to your show this morning and heard you talking about how girls should tell their man they're 'hot' more often. Well after learning this, I couldn't wait to try it out on my boyfriend. He's a golfer and spent a majority of today on the course. Later on when I picked him up, I noticed he was still in his golf clothes and hadn't showered yet. I didn't want it to come off as a joke, so I waited a little. After getting some ice-cream I found the perfect opportunity to say it... I looked into his eyes and said, "Wow! Why do you look so hot tonight?" as I licked some ice-cream off my spoon. His reaction was priceless! He was taken aback and said, "Wait, am I sweating or something?" I explained that I meant he looked very attractive. A smile came across his face and he looked away for a second... (probably wondering why the heck I thought he looked "hot" when he hadn't even taken a shower)... and with a completely different and more confident tone of voice said, "Thanks!" Haha I could tell it made his night and I bet he's still thinking about it! Haha thanks for the tip !

DanThursday, 06/09/2011 10:37am
This one reminds me of the list that Kathy made up of "100 traits that he should be".....I think that list went back to 2006 or there abouts. I looked for the list in the archives but it no longer exists. Does Kathy recall making the list and if she still has it, could she send a copy of it to my e-mail address, sportyd60546@gmail.com. Thanks!

BernadetteTuesday, 05/31/2011 09:29am
We had a long distrance relationship situation. He lived in Long Island, NY, I in Chicago. We were introduced via the phone. I mentally figured I would breakup with him by the end of the week. But, two days into our long distance relationship ... he proposed. I hesitated but found we had a great deal of similarities. I accepted. We'll be soon be celebrating our 17th anniversary. Yes, he left everything in NY and we married 10 days after he proposed.

SamanthaFriday, 05/27/2011 08:31am
Kathy- I've been listening to you guys for years. I completely agree that you are high-maintenance. One word: DENIAL.

DeniseThursday, 05/19/2011 11:28am
Thanks so much for the Parasite Talk. I am currently sitting in a tub of hot water, dish soap and bleach. I am considering going to the car wash later this afternoon. But not to wash my car.


Frank ButterfieldWednesday, 05/18/2011 07:00am
Nope! Dr. Oz was misinformed...she's still single! Chalk it up to Dr. Oz's late night with Oprah!

eric??Wednesday, 05/18/2011 06:49am
Eric and Kathy did I miss something? When did Melissa get married? DR OZ said she was Married? Is this true?

MarkTuesday, 05/17/2011 08:51am
So are we to believe that every time a group of females go out they are somehow, temporarily lesbians, by wanting to look good for their friends? Come on, they want the attention from other guys and if guys where to do the same then we would be sleeping on the couch for a week or more.

As a woman of (ahem) a certain age, I love you guys. When you were talking about a prostate exam and Kathy said, "Your neighbor did it for you, didn't he?" Eric shouted "NO!". I was roaring in the car and still do. (People were looking at me strangely.) I haven't laughed that hard since the early days of Steve Dahl.
Keep up the good work.

ColleenFriday, 04/08/2011 08:59am
So I was listening this morning and heard the drunk dial call you played. That was sups funny, especially because it sounded just like my friend Amy when she is hamboned (she often calls people while intoxicated). I was wondering if you could post the link so I could send it to some people who didn't hear it this morning. Thanks!

annonymousThursday, 04/07/2011 08:33am
So recently...I had a friend who went through a car wash, the kind where you stay inside your car. When she got to the part where the long thin pieces of fabric flop back and forth, her car got stuck. Long story short, she decided not to get out of her car and get wet, but honk the horn. Nothing happened. After 10 minutes, she decided to call her husband and have him find the number to the carwash to let them know she was stuck. He called them and she was freed! .......So has anyone ever been stuck in an awkward and embarrassing situation?

DLThursday, 04/07/2011 07:57am
About dating someone who wasn't attractive-
I wasn;t attractive to this guy, but I dated him a few times. He was super nice and sincere. He was cute, but definitely not my type. After 5 dates, I decided to go for it and keep dating. A year later, we got married. I am SO happy to have him in my life. He is the perfect guy! He's even cuter than ever! So, looks can be decieving! When you have someone who is so nice and considerate, go for it! If you keep waiting for the "dream guy" you'll be single forever and you'll be asking why can't I get anyone! Don't kid yourself! Keep dating that guy!

nscrpamTuesday, 04/05/2011 09:03am
What a great video

KatieWednesday, 03/30/2011 10:51am
Let's not forget the one who is often a combo of several of these - the talker, the jerk, sometimes the flirt or the stinker- unfortunately rarely the sleeper unless it's a very long flight, at which point they start the supersonic snoring and drooling- The Drunk. The person who starts slamming down beers or cocktails the second beverage service starts, the one who talks loudly about everyone around him, and blocks your exit as he stumbles off the plane. I sat next to this guy a few days ago on our way to New Orleans. Good times.

KarlaFriday, 03/18/2011 06:10pm
