A message from Leanne:
As you may or may not be aware, my mother and her sister along with at least two of their aunts all suffered and died as a result of Alzheimer's disease or dementia. This is the cruelest of all diseases because THERE ARE NO SURVIVORS, only what I call "the long goodbye" as you helplessly watch your loved one slide slowly into oblivion.
Alzheimerâs disease is the single largest unaddressed public health threat facing the nation today. As many as 5.3.million Americans are living with the disease and nearly 11 million are acting as caregivers.
We have to unite now to help end Alzheimerâs. To do my part, Iâm participating in the 2011 Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimerâs, an event that raises awareness and funds to advance care, support and research.
The number of Americans with Alzheimerâs is about to skyrocket. Baby Boomers are approaching the age of 65, placing this generation at a greater risk for developing this devastating disease.
The end of Alzheimerâs starts here â with a gift from you. Please consider supporting my efforts with a donation or by joining my team. The Walk to End Alzheimer's happens Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 10am in Greensboro's Center City Park.

I remember a time before the internet.Â You could go out and kick up your heels with some of the guys and nobody would find out the silly things you had done when you got caught up in the moment.Â If Al Gore really didÂ invent the internet, then he is responsible for this video circulating.Â What you are about to see is one of those case I mentioned above.Â To my wife and children...I'm so very sorry!Â Please forgive me for the public ridicule you are about to receive.Â Â Â Â Â

WOULD YOU HAND OUT BACON-FLAVORED GUMBALLS FOR HALLOWEEN?
Â This Halloween, you can hand out "regular" candy just like everyone else. Or you can break the mold and pass out some "less traditional" Halloween treats.
Â And I don't mean apples and toothbrushes.Â That's lame. I'm talking about stuff like THIS.
Â Bacon-flavored gumballs . . .Garlic mints . . .Zit Poppers, which are oversized acne bumps filled with candy pus . . .Human Dog Food, which is candy kibble in a mini bowl . . .And OMG!!!Â Scorpion Pops, which are just like regular lollipops, only they have a dead scorpion in the center.
Â You can buy these disgusting treats, along with several others that sound just as nasty, click here .

That's one of the best lines of the morning!Â It's "WordsÂ to Live By"...NOT English Class.Â Â Â
In case you missed it, I got an email from a listener...I've cut and pasted the actual email below.Â Â Note: Leanne fixed the punctuation and capitalization issuesâ¦and Iâm the one who should be embarrassed!?!?
â (Capital I)Â i always enjoy your show and the Words to Live By segment. However, would youplease correct your(Capital E)english."That(should be acomma)my friends(another comma here)is word
s to live by" is incorrect grammar. "That" is a singular subject. "Is" is a singular verb. "Words" is plural. What you essentially are saying is "That is words", which isincorrect. you(You should be capitalized) should say(Comma) "Those(Comma)my friends(Comma)are words to live by" or(Open quote and close quotehere)Â That, my friends, is aword to live by. Please correct it. You are an example to many(Comma)many people and the(Capital E)english language is being butchered enough without you adding to it. also.(OK, Iâm confused. Should the comma go before or after the âalsoâ?) (Capital Y) you, being one inthe public spotlight, should at least know how to speak correct(Capital E) english. Also, if(Capital I)i were you, i'd be terribly embarrassed by it. PLEASE CORRECT YOURSELF."
I'm trying to keep bad Chuck from rearing his ugly head, but people like this just REALLYÂ make me mad!!!Â Â I'm all about about freedom of speech,Â I can take a joke with the best of them,Â I'm fine with someone commenting on things we do on the show, and you can complain about me all you want to...I probably did it and will most likely mess up again.Â That's why I always say "If I'm being tested, I'm only a D student".Â Â Â Just in case youâre new to the show and for the record!!!Â Iâm a PROUD card carrying REDNECKâ¦if youâve been tuning in every morning for a good grammar lessonâ¦well, you should stop!Â The only grammar I know makes an awesome Chocolate pie. Â Â You should also know that my father in-law tells me that Iâm not the kind of guy you want dating your daughter, and Iâve been know to get a little side ways on a Friday night.Â On the other hand, Iâd give you the shirt off my back and Iâm pretty cool to drink a cold beer with.Â As the Preacher saysâ¦âDonât miss thisâ¦Iâm fixinâ to wrap things up here folksâ.Â Donât be like the emailerâ¦one of these people who sit on the front row at church to point out the how the choir missed a few notes or how the Pastor wore the same suit last week becauseâ¦wait for itâ¦ youâre going to miss the message!!!Â Â

As some of you know, I use to be a Police Officer in another life.Â I have so much respect for the Law Enforcement community...maybe it's because I have had a small taste of what it takes to do that...the mental stress on you and your family.Â I asked Rebecca (my wife) one time "If radio didn't work out for me, what would you think about me getting back in to Law Enforcement?"Â She teared upÂ and said "Please don't do that...I couldn't take it".Â That's a pretty powerful statement...it not only takes a special person to be in that line of work, but it takes a special type of person to support you to.Â I thank God for those people!Â
With that being said...I'd like to introduce you to The Officer Down Memorial Fund.Â This is a group of local Officers who got together just after Trooper Blanton was gunned down.Â Their mission is simple...Â
Provide financial assistance to survivorâs families throughout the State of North Carolina.
Provide information for the survivors in coping with the emotional stress of a line-of-duty death.
Â Bring awareness to the survivors of North Carolina Stateâs death benefits.
Â Help current officers with information on how to organize their current financial materials and other affairs.Â If you'd like more info click here.

Well, I've really done it now! Leanne took a little trip to Charlotte yesterday to meet Michael Waltrip. she couldn't wait to get back to show me that she purchased a quarter panel off his car...no dents or scuffs of any kind. Well, here's where things get side ways so to speak. I said something about it being worth a lot of money because there's not a lot of Mikey's cars with out damage...totally slipped out...BAD CHUCK! Wouldn't you know it...Mikey heard it and tweeted to Leanne "I was listening...my Mom says that if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all ;-)". Please forgive me Mikey...I've watched you do "This week in NASCAR" so I know that you know how people can sometimes stick their foot in their mouth...well, I did and I'm very sorry!

I'd be willing to bet that most parents are excited about North Carolina's upcoming tax-free holiday.Â I know I am!Â Meanwhile, my 10-year-old, John, is dreading the thought of mom taking him clothes shopping, but he's not getting out of it this time.
There are lots of back-to-school bargains to be had, in fact, some stores are selling computers for as little as $300!Â Clothing, footwear, and school supplies of $100 or less per item; school instructional materials of $300 or less per item; sports and recreation equipment of $50 or less per item, computers of $3,500 or less per item; and computer supplies of $250 or less per item will be exempt.Â For the complete list of what's fair game this weekend and what's not, click here.

I've noticed a trend in AmericaÂ latley thatÂ I think is AWESOME.Â Getting back toÂ basics is how I'll describe it.Â I've notice that I'm thinkingÂ of the things from my childhood...finding comfort in a simpler time I guess.Â Â
Me and my sons Jordan and Grayson planted a garden together this year...I hadn't done that in 15 years and I love it!Â Got to hang out with my boys, loving the fresh veggies and the boys go out every day and look at the garden just to see the progress.Â Â I saw a stat the other day that said plants and seed sales in theÂ U.S. was up by 20% this year andÂ it was up about that much last year.Â Â
After seeing how much fun they had doing the garden, I started an experiment with my kids to get back to basics.Â Rebecca and I made a mental list of things that we just loved about our childhood (some that were cheap to do) and we've introduced them to these things.Â The latest example was this Saturday night we went to the Eden Drive In...pack a cooler and it was a home run.Â GraysonÂ asked if we could do it again next weekend.Â It cost us $12.00 to get in and then the cost of our food that we brought from home...about $20.00 all said and done.Â We saved money and it's something that my kids we NEVER foget.Â Â
What are you doing to get back to basis?

The crew aboard the International Space Station is working on a problem with the system for collecting solid and liquid waste, which is a trickier proposition without gravity than it is on the Earth.Â
From Chuck:Â This got me to thinking about the whole "Going in outerspace"...I have enough trouble hitting the hole...can't imagine trying it at zero gravity!!!Â And what if you wait too long to come in after a space walk and you can't get your space suite off in time???Â What if you ate one of those freeze dried Chilli Dogs and you get a touch of gas...that would be giving yourself a dutch oven...I'mÂ just sayin'!!!
