    Good for you MJ ! I watch you every morning, and I had no idea that you were also so creative… I hope you sell tons of them, and if it helps even just a few, it will be a great thing you have done.
    Best wishes,

    MJ, I look forward to your delightful forecast every morning.What a breath of fresh air on television you and the Q13 crew are.

    MJ, while you do the weather and are talking about the ground hog’s shadow, please don’t miss Unidilla Bill in NE. He doesn’t get much air time, not even in his own town. Remember me? Susan – a NE native, now living in Olympia and love it. I think I told you about poor old Bill. The fact that he is stuffed and lives on a shelf of the local pub, he still gets the mayor and the bar owner out in the weather to see if he can see his shadow. The mayor and any others (I don’t think there are any others) still to go through the process. And in the summer, the whole town has a festival in Bill’s honor. So—please don’t forget Bill.

    I’m a horrible grouch in the mornings and you guys make me lol with your wit, so thanks. One small request… I’m an arthritis sufferer and as a medical assistant many of the patients I deal with also suffer along with me whenever the pressure drops. Wouldn’t it be super uber awesome if along with the weather we also knew when the air pressure was going to be high or low? Just a suggestion, helps us plan our days. S:]

    M.J. You did a beautiful job with the garden on today’s broadcast! I give you 1st place. That dude has years of experience and only showed off “by the book” skills. …Whatever. You’ve got the natural talent. …To each their own, but in my opinion, you get the blue ribbon. …(I’ve been landscaping/gardening for 24 yrs.)
