#HappyMothersDay #Amgen ... Today in the News Weekend Edition Part 2

#HappyMothersDay #Amgen ... Today in the News Weekend Edition Part 2 5/11/2014

Opening Statement:
Though today is Amgen day it is a very special day for Mothers everywhere. Mothers are very unique in their own way. NEWSFLASH!!! THEY KNOW EVERYTHING!!! I am pretty sure when it first starts for them being a mom (9 months prior) they are given special powers. They become doctors, nurses, teachers, chefs and of course Psychic, but that is why we love them. We may try them over the years but in the end we love them as much as they love us.

My mom raised 4 kids. My 2 older sisters, 1 older brother and me. All of them are married giving her 6 Grandsons 1 one Granddaughter. I on other hand just give her a headache. Growing up with a learning disability she had to spend extra time teaching me as well as taking me to eye appointments because of an eye condition. She was a parent, teacher, a doctor when I ran high temps of 106+ as a kid even to a point of me flat lining in the hospital only to bring brought back. I broke my collarbone jumping from the top of my crib and landing on a dresser instead of the floor and that was all before the age of 7,

But enough about me. Happy Mother's Day too all moms. May it be filled with love and happiness.

Now lets see what is taking place Today in the News.....

Quick Thought:
Mother's Day




All this and more in Today in the News....

In this hour leading off the show Amy was at the desk alone so Cody could cover Amgen and that is where we met Jon Santos from Davis Wheel Works. Jon is better known as Mr. Plant Lady because he is the husband of the Plant Lady Marlene Simon. Nina was also covering Amgen from the State Capital where she talked to Dr. Alan Lim the creator of Skratch who provides Nutrients for the Amgen Riders. We first met the Doctor on Friday during Good Day. Cody also talked to Miss California 2012 who is with Pistachio Growers of California travelling with the racers. Melissa was also covering Amgen in Roseville checking out bikes, fashion and more from Roseville Cyclery. It is Sunday so that must mean Eleanor was in the building talking juicy gossip including Kim and Kanye wedding. Today's #GDSJustCurious Topic of the day Describe your mom in 3 words. Today's Show us your is Mom and mom on a bike for extra points.

Cody continued covering all things Amgen as well as Nina in this hour. Amy learned why Henna Art is becoming so popular for Prom from Henna Designs. Melissa was in Lincoln checking out what moms are having for breakfast at Kim's Country Kitchen. Cambi was in Davis talking to the landscapers of Pedal Powered Landscaping as one of their own surprises his mom with a yard makeover. Today is Sunday so Dishin With Tina is back and this week Tina is Dishin at Vince's Restaurant in West Sacramento and this was Jason Maloney's choice.

In this hour Amgen coverage continued from Melissa, Cody, Nina. A Mother/Daughter team to cut their hair for Locks of Love from Kahootz Salon and Spa Cambi was in Dixon at the May Fair checking out the 4-H Club Dogs. Henna Art also continued. Nina checked out Cafe Roma to see how they are planning Mother's Day and Amgen

Amgen coverage continues with Cody and Nina. Cambi checked out Mother's Day Brunch at Hook n Ladder. Mother/Daughter finish up Locks of Love. Lori had Hot Headlines including Christina performing on Stage.

Final Thoughts:
With apologies to mothers everywhere today and tomorrow at this point there is no other story bigger than Amgen Tour of California and today on Good Day they covered it so well I can't wait to see how everyone covers it tomorrow because I don't think they can do it as well as Cody, Melissa, and Nina did today on Fox40 and My58 plus with the energy and enthusiasm the 3 of them brought today and the commitment Cody did right down to the bike shorts I almost guarantee the other stations won't go that far.

Anyway Today Cody out in the field covering Amgen made it fun to watch and then you add Nina into the mix and Melissa covering the Roseville/Lincoln area was perfect.

Cambi was the only reporter in the field NOT covering Amgen, She got to cover Dixon May Fair, Bike Landscapers, Hook n Ladder and she ran like a mother. No really she covered the Davis Run Like a Mother

Amy covered the in studio guests today with Henna Art for Proms and the Mother/Daughter duo cutting their hair for Locks of Love. What a cool way to spend your Mother's Day with your daughter giving back to people who need it. Plus if you want to give to Locks of Love you can make an appointment with Kahootz and they can do it for you.

Eleanor was in today and gave all her juicy Gossip. I love Eleanor as a person and I love that she is a part of the show on Sunday. She is one thing I always look forward to on Sunday.

Tina was also Dishin With Tina today and with EP / Truck Tractor Jason Maloney at Vince's in West Sacramento. It was nice to see Tina bring the Co-workers back into the fold so hopefully we can finally see Cody get his turn. But this week Vince's should be in studio so tune into Good Day Wednesday at 9am.

As you know today is Mother's Day so Good Day showed viewers moms as well as checked out Kim's Country Kitchen and Hook n Ladder for Mother's Day Brunch specials. I hope everyone who is a mother is having or had a nice day.

Looking ahead to this week first for Today in the News and then Good Day:
Monday - Fox40, My58, Good Day
Tuesday - Fox40, My58, Good Day
Wednesday- Good Day Only
Thursday - Fox40, Good Day
Friday - Fox40, Good Day
Sat/Sun - Good Day
