Michele Mitchell

Michele here!  That's my family there including my husband, Greg, and my daughter, Kate.

We live in Springfield where I've been since 1993.  Originally I'm from St. Louis, and that's where most of my family still lives.  Luckily it's not too far away, so we can get together fairly often.

You can hear me Monday - Friday 6-10am on 104.5 WMFB in Springfield.  John & I have the distinction of being Springfield's longest running morning show. 

This isn't my only blog.  I also have a Makeup Blog where I (and sometimes you) review cosmetics.  Make sure you check it out and leave your comments.

Some of my favorites
- I like this site for news
www.people.com - Great place for celebrity news
www.sephora.com - Makeup galore!
www.imdb.com - Can't think of the name of that actor?  This site will have it.
www.qvc.com - Yes, I like to shop QVC.  They have some really cool stuff, I swear.
www.youtube.com - This is where I catch up on things I missed on TV.

iPhone Apps
I love my iPhone.  It's the greatest phone I've ever owned by far (and I've owned a lot of them).  In fact, I admit I probably love my iPhone too much.  I'm always finding new apps, and here are some of the latest I love...
Angry Birds- I'm not much into video games, but this thing is addictive.
Vougue Knitting - I'm a knitter, and this app is great.  You can keep track of unlimited projects and inventory all your needles so you never buy what you don't need.
IMDB - When you just can't think of the actress that starred in that one film, this will keep you from going crazy.
360 - This app allows you to easily take 360 degree panoramic photos and upload them.

The Hot Topic Right Now

If you haven't been living underground you know about the recent suicide of a gay college student named Tyler Clementi.  A roommate allegedly streamed a sexual encounter Clementi had with another man, and three days later Clementi jumped off a bridge.  I think we can all agree this a horrible situation.

This situation has many Hollywood types speaking out about gay bullying, and that's fine, but I don't think it should be so specific.  There's a problem with bullying in this country, and it's not just gay people who are getting bullied.  Some kids who are bullied grow up to be just fine, but some commit suicide and some show up at school one day and kill their classmates. 

So how do we solve the problem?  I'm not sure they really can solve the problem in the schools.  If a student who's being bullied tells a teacher or a principal,  doesn't that just make them a bigger target?  It has to start at home, right?  Though I'm not sure exactly how.  Any suggestions?
