Labor Pain Simulator Part II

Yesterday we talked about a couple of guys in The Netherlands who had tried to empathize with their expectant wives by being hooked up to a machine that simulated labor pains.
Listen to what Enon had to say about it.

Brad had a slightly different take. Listen.

All this talk of babies got us wondering if you want to know the gender of your baby before the delivery, or if you'd rather be be surprised.
Enon started it off. Listen.
Listen to a couple of differing points of view.

Tuna Melts Shannon's Heart

Shannon found a new Instagram account to follow, #TunaMeltsMyHeart. She posted a link to his account on the Prevenings Face Book page.
John visited our Face Book page to see Tuna. Listen to what he had to say.

More on Blueberries
Shannon shared her recipe for Blueberry Mint Lemonade yesterday. Today we learned that blueberries can help reduce stress since they have lots of antioxidants and vitamin C. They're also good for the heart cause they contain compounds that help widen arteies leading to better blood flow. We also found that strawberries are good for your hear AND can help whiten teeth!

We weren't real sure how much stock to put into this claim, after all when's the last time you read the ingredients on a tube of toothpaste and saw "strawberries" listed? But Christina called in to confirm it. Listen.

The Case of the Cleaning Fairy

Police in Ohio have captured (again) a woman they've taken to calling the Cleaning Fairy. She was arrested today while shoveling snow. Problem is, it wasn't her snow. She had broken into a house, cleaned it and then gone outside to shovel the driveway. This isn't the first time she's broken into a home and cleaned it. Literally cleaned it. She  never takes anything, just cleans and leaves. Our listeners wouldn't mind having her break into their homes. Listen.

Today's Bible Verses

We wrap up every show with prayer time and a few verses from the Bible. Today we shared Proverbs 2:6 - 8. For more information on the prayer ministry of The JOY FM, check out the prayer hotline section of our website.
