Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard.  >^..^<

Because I am assuming you don't want to see what it looked like BEFORE it had to
be fixed. The city employees wouldn't let me near the holes in the road anyway.
Safety precautions & liabilities. I get it, but they didn't realize how curious I was.

They also assured me I really didn't want to get too close, either. I feel sorry for
the house(s) on my block who discovered it the hard way. (Luckily, I didn't smell it.)

Sadly, our street had just been freshly paved about a year & a half ago. BUT, if we're talking about old, broken sewer pipes, than I am thankful for the City of SF crews!

This is my first stream-of-consciousness blog. It is definitely an experiment. I am typing everything that comes into my head as it is coming in, so that I can finally come up with an idea to write about today.

I can tell you one thing, I certainly dislike the typos I am typing, because they slow me down as I have to go back and correct each word. It KILLS me to leave in a typo... or even worse.... a grammatical error. Nooooo improper grammar! Not on my watch.

If I left in any bad grammar, my English-major mother would break out in a rash, without even knowing why she was having this horrible attack. The words that would be improperly thrown together would emanate their own sort of energy that would envelop her. Yikes, I can't have that!

Ok, end of my stream of consciousness that resluted... omg that's too funny, so I have to leave it in.... RESULTED in finishing my KOIT blog on time to post for the day.

And there wasn't even one word about animals or wine or food! See, I do have other issues that travel through my mind. Of course now I can't stop thinking about cats.
Cats drinking wine at the buffet.

End of experiment. That won't happen again.... anytime soon.

First and foremost, I'm a DARK chocolate lover. But I DO appreciate milk chocolate when it is from a quality chocolate manufacturer.

And I will say that milk chocolate does pair very well with Chardonnay.
So I've found a good use for milk chocolate in my life! Vive le chocolat!

(above) My ecstasy upon finding the exquisite Le Grand Courtage Sparkling Wine from France! (Seriously delicious!)

Last Thurs at Santana Row in San Jose was a lovely evening for "Ladies Out Loud".
The wine glasses glinted beautifully in the sun.....


Although Teri King & I were sad when our glasses mysteriously became empty!


Voila, happy again at LB Steak with this beautiful tasting lounge by Le Grand Courtage

(above) Marlon Wayans takes a selfie with me, which accounts for the blurriness!

Always a pleasure to have Marlon cracking us up! He dropped into the KOIT Studio, so I made him choose between Andrew's Oakland A's or my SF Giants.

Another great day at O.co for the A's as Andrew & I met lots of great KOIT listeners.


Andrew's mom, Mary, was our best customer!

Scooping for charity at the Oakland A's Root Beer Float Day in July
of 2012, with the A's General Manager Bob Melvin in my booth!

He was bombarded with fans, so I couldn't get any work out of him
and had to do all the scooping myself.

He admitted to me he was glad to get out of "scooping duty".
I was lucky to get a photo in! smiley

The dogs in commercials do it. And since Sasha's a German Shepherd, she's hella smart. She is catching on pretty quickly.

If I leave her in the car and go into a store, when I come out, she's already sitting in the driver's seat. I think she'll be up to speed soon enough to drive
me to KOIT PETS events around the Bay Area.

The hardest part of the whole process is getting the appointment for her driver's license test at DMV, sometime within this century!

Meet Baron Von Tanhauser, my friend's new German Shepherd puppy.
He's 2 months old and beyond adorable. I almost just took him home with me!
(Of course I dildn't. She'd never invite me over again. And I'd be in jail now!)

It was in my car! I just spent 2 hours vacuuming out my dog-friendly SUV,
and came up with enough German Shepherd fur to keep Siberia warm.
(

I had to clean out my vehicle so that my new morning show partner, Andrew Hart, could ride with me to a Relay For Life event at Newark Memorial H.S. tomorrow (Sat, July 18), from 11am-1pm.

Who knew all this time I had a mobile beach? Now it's in my vacuum cleaner!

Andrew & I had our photo shoot today at the infamous Pat Johnson Studios in San Francisco. Pat has photographed all the world's rock stars, and his studio is a rock & roll history museum.

(above) What we see while we're posing. And Deb Pannier, makeup artist & stylist.

Final pictures should be ready soon!

(above) My little Brooklyn, putting on his "begging eyes".
Some friuts are a healthy addition to your dog's diet, such as bananas, blueberries, kiwis, strawberries & pineapple, but feed them sparingly, as a treat separate from the main meal. Too much will cause diarrhea.

These fruits can be toxic to dogs:

Avocados - contain persin, which can be lethal. The pit can cause a GI blockage.

Grapes/Raisins - extremely toxic, can cause rapid kidney failure within days.

Cherries - contain cyanide in large doses.

Apple cores/Peach pits - contain cyanide. Can cause breathing difficulties or even seizures.

Figs - can cause allergic reaction, or at least diarrhea.

Citrus - can cause digestive issues due to all the sugar & acid.


Even with the good fruits, everything in moderation!

My new morning show partner, Andrew Hart, finally made the trek from Chicago
to the San Francisco Bay Area, and we are now in full swing on KOIT!

First order of business, the all-important "let's find a Happy Hour & prep for the show". It was so successful, I got to meet his mom, Mary (below). I LOVE HER!

Looking forward to many more good times ahead. Tune us in Mon-Fri 5:30-10am.

While Doyle Drive in San Francisco is closed for tunnel finalization (10pm Thursday, July 9 through 5am Monday, July 13, 2015), here is a video sneak peek of the view
from the top of the tunnels, which you'll be able to see for yourself starting Monday morning, when Doyle Drive re-opens.

(above) At a recent KOIT event, when listener Steven Sanchez stopped by.

I love it when listeners send, post or tweet me info about their lives. Usually it's
adorable dog, cat or child pics. Sometimes it's a good wine recommendation.
In this case, it's your friendly neighborhood plumber staying awake!

Steven tweeted me video this morning of how he keeps going on his marathon days.
Sometimes he works 25 hours straight, heading from one emergency to the next!
What a positive attitude. I admire, and am grateful for, all of our listeners with the hard work ethic and bright spirit that keeps the SF Bay Area the BEST place in the world to live!

I was so excited to get out of work at a decent hour today. No meetings, no errands to run, nothing extra but the normal things I need to do later in the day, which always include prepping for tomorrow, KOIT Facebook postings & writing this daily blog.

I calculated all the things I could do with my extra couple of hours on this sunny day: laundry, dusting, vacuum out the car, sort through stacks of papers, answer backlogged emails, take Sasha to the beach (yes! I like that one)....

But you know what happened. I've been sick, I'm still recuperating, so I'm still gathering all the energy I can from all sources. I just keep forgetting I need sleep.

That's something I NEVER get enough of, since I get up at 2:30am every weekday morning, and I can't get to bed before 9:30 or 10pm.

So this afternoon when I got home, I vacuumed up pet hair, slathered up & photographed my Hello Kitty Chia Pet (to be featured in a future blog), made some lunch, and was down for the count in no time.

I had fallen asleep on the couch with cats (and a tiny dog) curled up on top of me.
There were moments when I tried to wake myself up, but then I realized, cats truly
do know best. How could I argue with the experts?

What a thoughtful gift! A friend gave me these for no reason,
other than she just thought they'd make me smile.

As the commercial from 1979 said, "Have a Coke and a smile."
And now it's playing in my head. Earworm! (Smart marketing, Coke.)

Fireworks & firecrackers are terrifying to animals. The noise is painful, lights are blinding & energy is anxiety-producing. After July 4th is when the MOST dogs & cats turn up missing, and shelters become overrun, with many never re-claimed.

KEEP PETS INSIDE
before neighborhood fireworks/firecrackers start up.
In the backyard, they can jump over fences they can't normally reach. Even inside, they've been known to break windows by jumping out in fear.

Some products that help keep my dogs & cats calm during periods of chaos:


1 - Spirit Essence Stress Stopper or Bach Rescue Remedy - a few drops in water bowls, in food, on ear tips and even mixed with water and spritzed on bedding & fur.

* Bonus: Human Grade Quality - these take the edge off people's anxiety, too!


2 - Thundershirts - Sasha & Brooklyn model theirs during
#stormageddon last year.



3 - Sound machine or radio (like 96.5 KOIT) played softly, to mask outside sounds.

4 - Lavender essential oil mixed with water and spritzed in the air and on bedding.


Good for New Year's Eve & Chinese New Year + Thunderstorms too!

Welcome to the newly remodeled Lucky Supermarket at 6834 Mission St in Daly City. I was "lucky" to be there for the Grand Opening today of this brand new concept store called "California Lucky", focused on fresh, healthy & LOCAL.

Of course, I quickly found the Sake Tasting of Sho Chiku Bai from Takara Sake out of Berkeley, CA. Yay, we have a sake brewery right here in the Bay Area!


Can you believe this is a supermarket? Check out the Kitchenware Dept.


The colorful tableware! And... just ONE more taste of sake.
