Wave parades honor residents and staff
Keeping in touch with friends and relatives can be challenging with the current restrictions during the pandemic. This is especially true for those folks being cared for in assisted living and retirement communities. American Senior Communities is organizing Wave Parades for all their residents across Indiana. You'll enjoy a joyous Wave Parade that just took place in Danville. Waves and smiles are essential to good health, too!
Red Snapper recipe from Caplinger's
Just before “social distancing” went into effect, Patty paid a visit to Andrew Caplinger and got up close and personal with him in his kitchen! By that, we mean, she got to savor some succulent pan-fried parmesan crusted red snapper, prepared just for her by the gracious owner of Caplinger's Fresh Catch. Sooo good, and Andrew's two dogs may have gotten a taste, too. Patty's not snitching on the pooches! Caplinger's locations are open for delivery or stop by for carry-out. Visit CaplingersFreshCatch.com Great the recipe at GreatDayTV.com
Keeping cars moving is essential business
It's safe to say, we're all under a lot of stress with the coronavirus situation still altering our lives in many ways. “Stay at home” may be feasible for some, but for others on the front lines, they still have to go to work. That's one reason car dealerships are considered an “essential business.” Jeff Inskeep, of Inskeep Ford, explains how his team is working to service and repair vehicles to keep responders on the road. Patty talks to Jeff about his commitment and concerns.
Flashback: Patty and Michael Jordan 1996
He's a legend. A basketball icon. And an actor! Yup, with “The Last Dance” documentary getting rave reviews on ESPN, Patty thought it was time to remember when Michael Jordan starred in the movie “Space Jam.” Patty shares her 1996 interview with us, and yes, even she was star struck!

Low carb crab cakes!
Andrew Caplinger shares his Low Carb Crab Cake recipe, and, of course, Patty has to taste-test this succulent creation. If you're a seafood lover, this concoction is a must!

Caplinger’s now has carry-out and delivery: CaplingersFreshCatch.com. Want to make the crab cakes at home? Recipe: 1 pound jumbo or colossal lump blue crab meat 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese 3/4 cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon lemon juice Mix all ingredients with the exception of the blue crab.
