How do you let your wife know how much you love her? How about standing on a stage in the middle of a busy park and shouting (into a microphone), "I'm sorry that I've gained weight over the last seven years, but that's because the meals you cook are so delicious."

That's what this guy is saying at Japan's "Beloved Wife Day." We gave you the opportunity to express your love for your wife, sort of a head start on Valentine's Day. We also took your calls of comfort and good-natured teasing for our buddy Matt, producer for The Morning Cruise on The Joy FM.

We learned more about the awesome fruit that is the blueberry plus a little known fact about the strawberry. And the conversation on that labor pain simulator continued and led to a discussion on learning or being surprised by a baby's gender. And Shannon found a special dog to follow on Instagram. Plus the legend of the cleaning fairy.

Shannon finally figured out what to do with all of those blueberries she bought on impulse the other day and she shared her recipe. We also got an "insider" tip about the ongoing Subway sandwich controversy. And we discussed the many sides of Prince Harry and a new labor pain simulator for expectant dads.

Sorbet, lemonade, Beyonce, bidet. What do these things have in common? They played prominently on today's episode of Prevenings.

Well, we made it through another Monday. Seems like the first day of the week is often the most stressful, so we came up with a unique stress relief technique.

Secret Keeper Girl is coming to town on February 26. All the details are right HERE on our website. We began a conversation with Danna Gresh, the founder of Pure Freedom and Secret Keeper Girl (or SKG for you hipsters). We also heard back from one of yesterday's callers with the results of her first face-to-face date with someone she "met" on line. All that, our weekly apologies and more in today's highlights.

You shared some advice and stories about romance, both real and virtual. Plus, when do you call it quits and the new JOY FM Wall of Inspiration. All of that and more were among our highlights on Prevenings.

Run away 5-year olds, self-diagnosis via Dr. Google and romance advice from your smartphone assistant were among the topics we touched on today.

It's flu season and we shared Mandisa's home remedy as well as some of yours. We also talked about inconvenient conveniences and workplace fridge thieves.

Funny how often we come back to talking about food, and snack foods in particular. Today we mentioned that a Georgia based bakery, Flower Foods, will be buying the Hostess bread brands, including Wonder Bread, but so far no word on any company buying the snack cake brands, like Twinkies--and that generated some calls. And a well-meaning phone call may have caused a little panic.

Even though we're only 33 days from pitchers and catcher reporting for Major League Baseball's 2013 Spring Training, Jerry hasn't let go of the Christmas spirit, and Shannon called him out on it. Plus we discussed Louie Giglio's decision to withdraw from participating in President Obama's inauguration.

Words that are hard for you to pronounce, where to find the rudest people and a special internationally cultural visit with Matt Fields, producer for The Morning Cruise, were among the highlights today.

What's that in your purse? We talked about the essentials you carry in your purse, or, if you're a guy, your "man-purse". Plus, Jerry had a little trouble with techno-speak, and it was only Tuesday.

Monday, Jan 07, 2013

This tweet from Mike of MIKESCHAIR inspired a little conversation today. And we learned a cool thing you can do with Girl Scout Cookies.

Friday, Jan 04, 2013

We wrapped up the first (short) week of the new year with notes on music for your final journey, weird food combinations and more.

Tolkien

Today would have been the 121st birthday of JRR Tolkien and that got us talking about Shannon's vow to stop running to Google so often. We also shared words that should be retired this year and a new way to remember the best of 2013.
