I’m starting to feel the Weekend Woes… where has this weekend gone?
This weekend I celebrated ‘World Turtle Day’ by donating to the BC SPCA for #BeKindToAnimals month! The BC SPCA city challenge kicked off at the beginning of May. This years goal is to raise $50,000, all month long you can bring in bottles to the Nechako Bottle Depot and tell them its for the BC SPCA account.
I also celebrated by not washing my hair and wearing a ball cap to work… I’m in radio for a reason!
Lots of changes to TLC this week. The Learning Channel pulled the reality series “19 Kids and Counting” from its schedule, because of sexual misconduct allegations against one of the stars, Josh Duggar. I posted a couple articles about this story on our 101.3 The River Facebook page and got a great conversation started, thank you!
Our very own Jessica Rankin was playing Fast & the Furious at Northland Dodge this weekend for Customer Appreciation! Stan the Ram was making it rain prizes, hot dogs and discounts.
As if China needed another excuse for more people to be in the country. China is setting up to be the home of the worlds tallest, longest and in my opinion the SCARIEST pedestrian bridge in the world. The bottom of the bridge is completely GLASS! The bridge is 300 metres above the ground, 380 metres in length and 6 metres wide… oh did I mention you’ll be able to bungee jump off this bridge?
VERY VERY exciting news from Ireland this weekend! Ireland just became the first country to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote. I had the privileged of speaking with one of my best friends Courtney Murphy who lives in Ireland, and was celebrating with some friends!

The worlds favourite couple to hate Kim & Kanye celebrated their one year anniversary with a million instagram photographs.
And the worlds favourite couple to love Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield were spotted grocery shopping together… could they be together again?
Evacuation orders were downgraded this weekend to an evacuation alert, meaning residents can now return home. So far there has been no other changes to alerts and orders from the regional districts of Fraser-Fort George and Bulkley-Nechako. As of 8:13pm last night, the wildfire was 25,000 Hectares/250 Square Kilometers in size and 80% contained.
The ‘Fuller House’ spin-off wont be as ‘Full’ as we thought. Sources say that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsenwho took turns to play Michelle on the original Full house wont be participating in the Netflix series.

Rest in Peace.
