Jen Austin

Hi! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska and my whole family still lives there. The town really does have one stoplight, along with three churches, a bar, and a courthouse. I love going back to visit family, but I always look forward to getting back to Texas barbecue, fajitas, and taller buildings! I’ve lived in Texas for 18 years now, in Austin, Dallas, and here. I’ve worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college at the University of Nebraska, and I just love getting to talk to cool people like you every day!

Women Expect Men to Be Good With a Lawn Mower — And What Else?

Growing up in a small town in Nebraska I was close to my family, and there were certain things I always expected my dad to know how to do.  He was always there fixing things with his handy drill, landscaping the yard with his trusty riding lawn mower, and grilling ribs on Sundays.  He was just the go-to guy for that kind of thing.

Today is Michael Richards’ Birthday — Celebrate With These Seinfeld Classics

Kramer cracks me up with his views on marriage.  Is it really a "man-made" prison and married couples are doing time?  Oh, and do you remember the classic episode where Kramer bought those skinny jeans and his whole world turned upside down?  Tight pants are the worst!

Would You Pick A Certain Day To Get Married Because The Date Is Cool?

Do you geek out about numbers at all? I remember 7-7-07 and 8-8-08 being big days for weddings, and maybe some c-sections too. Happy sixth birthday to those kids in a few weeks.

What If We Had A 3-Day Work Week?

This story may not have quite the impact if it was coming from a video-game-playing dude in his twenties who spent most of his time on the couch eating chips.

But it's coming from a guy with big ambitions who heads a multi-billion dollar company, and is the second-richest person in the world behind Bill Gates.

Carlos Slim is saying we should only be working three days out of the week.  Great!  Now what's the catch?

Stress Can Make You Gain 11 Pounds Per Year

Something tells me us gals worry more about stress-eating than you fellas do.  If we get fat, we have something to blame it on!

Since stress-eating usually involves comfort foods like pizza, cheeseburgers, and chocolate cake, that packs on about a pound a month and eleven pounds per year those experts say.

I was a fat kid and part of my stress now involves worrying about being fat again, so this bit of news makes me feel like the problem is compounded.  Stress makes me want to starve and eat at the same time!

It's not just the foods themselves that cause the weight gain.  There could be something else going on with stress that makes us add the LB's.

Lone Ranger Outfit Brings In Big Bucks at Texas Auction

Personally, I can't imagine spending six figures on some pieces of clothing when the same chunk of change could buy five cars or SUVs.  But good for one Texas family who auctioned off some TV memorabilia over the weekend.  They made big bucks!

The family of a late businessman and collector decided to put the original Lone Ranger outfit on the auction block, and it brought in $195,000 at the auction in Waco Saturday.
