Kathryn’s Blog: Cleanin’ With Coke

I was noodling through Facebook the other day where I watched a video of a few things that Coca-Cola will clean. Years and years ago, once I learned Coke would take the paint off a car, I stopped drinking all soda. Truly, I thought perhaps this video was a spoof.

Kathryn’s Blog: Inside SWAP

One of Verona’s hidden treasures is not so hidden. It’s just that it’s got tight hours. It’s not a big secret, just not shared a lot until now. SWAP does not stand for Smart Women at Play, but it could! Salvage With a Purpose is the real name, and on

Kathryn’s Blog: Joe Gets Lost

I’ve been minding my good friends’ pets while they are at a wedding. It keeps me popping back and forth from my place to theirs. I always let Joe the turtle have run of the apartment. When I call him, he may take his time, but he comes out, and

Kathryn’s Blog: Welcome to Our Office

This is the view I get to see every time I come to work at Magic 98. It’s our reception area. I’ve seen it countless times, sat in the chairs to do interviews, or waited for a listener to come and pick up a prize. The Memorial High School choir

Kathryn’s Blog: Breakfast

I really love to share something if I have found it to be more then wonderful. With an eye on putting better food into my body these days,  it is with great pleasure, and a little pomp and circumstance, that I recommend this latest breakfast! Toast, peanut butter and sliced

Kathryn’s Blog: After the Storm

Several blog posts back, I wrote about a beautiful 100-year-old willow tree along the Yahara River Trail, where I walk all the time. It’s the very one where I first met the owl I photographed in yet another blog post. The picture you see here is that tree now. Several

Kathryn’s Blog: Out of Our Window

I have been thinking about how many listeners I’ve known over the many years I have been working here at Magic 98. You are all so truly friendly, kind, and generous, and you always understand my sense of humor. I am very, very blessed to have such a fun, interesting,

Kathryn’s Blog: On the Yahara River Trail

I am so very lucky that the Yahara River Trail is just walking distance from my home. It’s wild enough to have deer, hawks, fox, snakes and and now the cranes have returned. It is along the creek that meets up with the Yahara River, so it’s mapped for you,

Kathryn’s Blog: Owl Talk

When I first met the owl you see here, he was very high up in the 100-year-old willow tree on the Yahara Trail, where I often walk. I was absolutely marveling over and over about meeting him, because it was more than just hearing him hoot. I felt the actual

Kathryn’s Blog: Muskrat Love

This little fellow was sooo interested in eating his soggy weeds that he did not even notice me standing there taking his picture.  He lives right there on the Yahara River. I often see his tracks in the snow. His tail leaves a line in addition to his footprints. I
