Did you miss the secret sound this morning. Bob and I have $300 for you to win this week. This morning's guess was hitting a tennis racket. We will give someone else in KSSN COuntry a chance to win Tuesday morning at 7:40.
Bob and I love to thank and salute our local service men and women. Every Monday morning, we highlight an AR soldier at 7:10. This morning's Soldier Salute is from Amber Gibson about Skylar Climber from Bryant. Skylar is a Marine and just got back from basic training. Amber says, "He's my best friend and I'm very proud of him!" KSSN Country is proud of you, too! To send us info about the soldier in your life, just go to www.KSSN.com and send it our way!
For the fourth straight year, Hawaii has been named the best state for residents' overall well-being, according to a Gallup survey. You're probably thinking, "How could it not?! Beautiful beaches, awesome weather – it's like living every day on vacation!" But there's more to the survey than the weather ...
The survey evaluates overall well-being based on everything from physical and emotional health to job satisfaction. Hawaii scored 71.1 out of 100 on the well-being scale. According to the report, “Residents living in Hawaii were most likely to experience daily enjoyment and least likely to have daily worry or stress, which contributed to their high emotional health.” Packing up and moving to Paradise sounds like a pretty good idea!
Other happy states included:
West Virginia scored the lowest, with 61.3.
Today is National Peanut Butter Lovers Day -- a time to celebrate one of America's most popular foods. It's not to be confused with National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, which is April 2nd, or National Peanut Day, which is September 13th. Did you know that peanut butter is found in about 75 percent of homes? Whether it's kids taking PB-and-Js to school, or college students eating it out of the jar with a spoon, it's about as American as apple pie and hamburgers.
