This Morning Wendy Lestina of the Ferndale Museum came by the KHUM studios to talk about the upcoming sweet fundraiser for the museum. It's called "Sweet Memories" and is Saturday, May 7th from 11am till 3pm at Ferndale City Hall. 42 families will be displaying their history and showing off their featured desserts. You can bid on all 42 deserts in this silent auction, which has already begun online for some "offsite bidding." Admission for the event is $5 and tickets are available in Ferndale at Rings Pharmacy, The Ferndale Museum, J&W Liquors and online at ferndalemuseum.com. Pictured above is item #35, Cinnamon Rolls by John Lestina. I can attest, OMG they are good!

I can't be the only one this happens to. You are using Chrome, writing an email or whatever, and you misspell a word. Chrome shows you that handy little red line under the offending word. You could just retype it but it's so easy to just right click the word and have chrome fix it for you. Here in lies the issue: "Add to Dictionary" is right below the correct spelling of the word. If your cursor is just a fraction off target, you will inadvertently add that misspelled word to your dictionary. HELP!!! I have looked, there is no undo for this action. You have just added that messed word to your personal dictionary. This of course will not be an issue unless you spell the word wrong the same way again. in that case your computer will say, "we're cool dude." I am paraphrasing, but you get the idea.
Anyway, this morning I decided to try and do something about it after doing it AGAIN! I did a Google search and low and behold I found the answer. Cue the Hallelujah Choir. It's not a simple point and click solution, and you have to be somewhat computer literate to pull it off, but it does work.
The Dictionary is actually just a text file with a collection of all the words, or in my case, misspelled words you have added over the years. All you have to do, once you have navigated your way to it, is open it in a text editor, and simply delete the words you don't want. When I opened my file it had a very long list of words I had added. By the time I had eliminated all the misspelled words I had collected, there were only 5 custom words I had deliberately added. Wow, how embarrassing. If you'd like to give it a try. I am including a LINK to this handy website. Good luck!

This morning Emily and I had Justus Ortega and Daniel Aslan in the KHUM studio us to talk about a study they are doing at HSU about Biking & Exercise in the 65+ Population. The study deals with mussel efficiency. An earlier study showed that while muscle efficiency declines in the older population, it remains comparable to the younger population when running is the exercise. A new study is now looking at biking and strenuous exercise with devices such as elliptical machines. Anyone 65 and older, in good health who would like to participate in the study should contact Daniel Aslan at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This morning, longtime friend of KHUM, John Berning stopped by the KHUM studio. John is in town visiting family and to play a set tomorrow night (Saturday) from 7 till 9pm at Old Town Coffee and Chocolates. We reminisce about the old days of KHUM's Gasoline Protests and the songs he wrote and performed. In fact, he even performed a couple of them live on this morning.
