Hey it’s Brent Carey. My day starts with a great workout, wild Muni bus ride to work, then it’s time to open the mic on KOIT 3-7pm. I love living in the city, hope to run into you soon at a Bay Area event!

Not only do these three get along, the bird doesn't mind sharing some food.

At first I thought he just wanted to get over the barrier. But now I'm convinced this dog has some sweet dance moves. He's definitely got the back and forth thing mastered!

Ready for a trip back 46 years to the beginning of BART? This promotional video goes back to the construction of the system in 1968 and features some great old footage. Interesting to see the construction and the original vision "to provide safe, fast, economical and comfortable mass transit, thereby eliminating traffic congestion and preserving the beauty and character of the area."

The gratitude challenge has been going around on Facebook recently. It's great seeing what people are grateful for in their lives. Gratitude has a profound ability to transform your life and the way you see the world.

I found this video from a past TEDx in San Francisco featuring the talented Louie Schwartzberg. Louie's video is called "Happiness Revealed," and it's beautiful. I hope you enjoy it.

"You think this is just another day in your life. It's not just another day, it's the one day that is given to you TODAY. It's given to you, it's a gift. It's the only gift that you have right now, and the only appropriate response is gratefulness."

This might be the most relaxed dog I have ever seen. He's getting the full spa treatment and loving every minute of it.

Fridays are a GREAT day to get out of the office - and next Friday you can do it for a great cause! Heart Walk 2014 is set for Friday September 19th at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.

Not only does it give you a chance to help the American Heart Association, you're helping yourself too. Walking is good for you and one of the easiest forms of physical activity. It's the exercise most of us stick with and don't quit. In fact, studies show that an hour of exercise, including walking, adds two hours to your life expectancy – no matter when you start.



Funds raised from the Heart Walk support the American Heart Association's research efforts aimed at better treating and preventing heart disease. The money raised at the event also benefits local community education outreach and patient care improvement initiatives.

Heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases claim more than 831,000 lives every year. The AHA's mission is building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke, and its goal by 2020 is to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20 percent while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases and stroke by 20 percent.

So if you want to walk a 5K at lunch on 9/19 – go on down to Justin Herman Plaza and walk in the fight against heart disease and stroke.

There are other Heart Walks around the bay area too! Here are the other dates and links for more information...

Redwood City - Marine View Park at Oracle
Wednesday, September 17 at 11:30am to 1:00pm

Bretagne is a 15-year-old golden retriever who is believed to be the last surviving search dog who worked at Ground Zero in New York City following the September 11, 2001 attacks.

She retired from search work when she was 9, but recently returned to the site of the former Ground Zero complex. Her story was featured on NBC's Today show.

This dog is on a mission. He wants the cookie his owner left behind and won't stop until he gets it. I love how he keeps looking back to make sure he won't get in trouble!

Teachers in a Los Angeles area school are rallying around a co-worker in need of some help. Carol Clark teaches sixth-grade and is battling cancer. She was forced to use all of her sick and vacation days for treatment.

Faced with more tests and treatment and no time off available, Carol was a bind. Using a little known program in the L.A. School District, fellow teachers and other county workers donated THEIR sick days to help Carol. The overwhelming support has left Carol and her husband speechless and a bit emotional.

See the entire story here from KABC-7

The streets of San Francisco Chinatown will be transformed into a lively colorful bazaar this weekend with the 24th Autumn Moon Festival.

I had a chance to interview Entertainment Coordinator Cynthia Yee for "Today's World" and she shared the exciting lineup of events as well as the history behind the festival. Moon Festival celebrations have been held throughout Asia for well over 1,000 years.



This holiday is a time to reflect upon the bounty of the summer harvest, the fullness of the moon, and the myth of the immortal moon Goddess, Chang O, who lives in the moon. The Moon Festival is often compared to a "Chinese Thanksgiving" because of its spirit of gratitude and its inclusion of abundant food.

The festivities open with a grand parade on Saturday at 11 a.m. on California and Grant led by Mayor Ed Lee, civic officials, beauty queens, cultural performers and lion dancers.

There is a full slate of entertainment on the main stage at Grant & Washington. You can see the lineup here. Something new this year is the Dog Fashion Show happening Sunday at 2:45pm.

The Autumn Moon Festival also promises amazing food which will be everywhere this weekend.

We have lost another comedy legend with the passing of Joan Rivers. She was a true pioneer. I remember seeing her on the Tonight Show when I was a kid and this video below from NBC is from that era. Another video follows from 1983. They capture her life, attitude, and career in her own words.

Do you find yourself repeating things over and over to your kids but they just don't listen? This frustrated dad had enough. Since the kids refused to change the toilet paper roll, he created an instructional video. Genius!

21-year-old Aaron Seldomridge is autistic and usually needs to order from picture menus. One day he met Anisa Dujnic who was working at the local Starbucks. Now with her help, he is able to order on his own with no problem.

This is ridiculously cute. Cookie is from the Cincinnati Zoo and is the mascot of the Zoo Bird House. You have to watch all the way to the end. I had no idea penguins were ticklish!
