There are plenty of theories on why the males are dominating country music these days. And then there's Reba McEntire, who's been around long enough to know it's just a temporary thing.

She says, quote, "Everything happens in a cycle. There was a time when contemporary music was popular [in country], and then here comes traditional music.

"And then the girls kind of took over and right now it's the boys taking over . . . and I think it's time for the girls to come back in."

We agree!

A four-year-old boy in Utah named Ethan Van Leuven has cancer, and doesn't have much time left. So last week, his entire community celebrated Halloween early, so he could trick-or-treat. They also had a parade for his fifth birthday, and celerated Christmas early, with over 150 people singing carols in his front yard.

Watching TV and the news lately you forget that there are great people in this world. This great story is proof of that.

You probably don't even flinch anymore when you see someone holding out their phone to take a selfie . . . it's become completely normal and acceptable. And that's because pretty much EVERYONE'S doing it all the time.

A new study found 86% of Americans take at least one selfie a week . . . and one out of three of us take at least three selfies a week.

Here are a few more numbers from the study . . .

People are most likely to include friends in their selfies, ahead of their significant others and kids.

83% of people with pets have taken a selfie with them.

One out of four people take selfies in the car.

70% of people take selfies at home . . . 55% take them on vacation . . . and 38% take them when they're going out at night.

1) The Redskins take on the Cowboys in Texas tonight for Monday Night Football. Not that it probably matters, but Hank McCoy will be starting for the 'Skins.

2) The Antares rocket will be launching from Wallop's Island, VA this evening. So remember at 6:45PM to put your beer down and look southeast and you should be able to see it!

3) TLC has cancelled "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" since Mama June is reportedly dating a convicted sex offender. Odd, since convicted sex offenders probably make up most of the Boo Boo audience.

4) Of course Halloween is this Friday! So be sure you restock on all the giveaway candy you're already eaten.

5) Dale Jr. won the Cup race this past weekend and was gifted with a grandfather clock. If only they gave one away for every race he might get him a championship!

The Antares rocket will be launching from Wallop's Island in VA this evening around 6:45PM. If you look southeast around that time and hold the bottom of your fist to the horizon, the top of your fist is where you should be looking to see it. Of course, we figured they were taking more beer to the International Space Station, but who knows.

There are a few interesting things coming out this weekend with the horror movie Ouija (the trailer scared Lori to death) and Bill Murray comedy St. Vincent, but our bet is on John Wick starring Keanu Reaves. We know it's Keanu, but we think he'sat his best when he's just doing lots of action (and not alot of talking). If you go see it, let us know what you think!

1) Cigarette manufacturer Reynolds American Inc. has banned smoking by employees in their offices and elevators, but smokeless tobacco will still be ok. So instead of ash trays everyone will have a spitoon on their desk.

2) In college football the Hokies are taking on Miami at home tonight while Catfish's ECU Pirates will take on Connecticut. Billy D's a VCU so he doesn't have a dog in that fight. But as Catfish always says, VCU is still undefeated in football!

3) Another fence jumper made it most of the way up to the White House. We're thinking this whole fence jumping thing could become the next big Olympic sport. But only if it's at the White House.

4) There's a solar eclipse tonight around 6:20pm. The bad news is you're not supposed to look at it because you'll go blind, so make sure you watch it like everything else... on the internet.

5) TODAY someone will be winning $1,000 because it's Thousand Dollar Thursday for the K95 Phrase That Pays! Although Lori had a little trouble getting that out this morning...

Everyone has tip for losing weight, but I bet you've never heard some of these before...

Divorce your wife. There's 275 pounds gone right there.

Don't limit your fruit intake to whatever's inside your pastry.

Every time you feel like eating, picture Renee Zellweger's new face. It'll pass.

Only weight yourself on the moon.

Notice how you just topped your pancake with butter, your butter with jelly, your jelly with syrup, and your syrup with whipped cream? Maybe stop doing that.

1) RVA has been voted as #10 for cities in the US with the biggest sweet tooth. That supports the 2012 results that found we were in the top 20 for obesity.

2) Sharknado 3 is coming... and will be set in Washington D.C. Feel free to skip it like you did the other two movies.

3) The domesticated pig "Tucker" will not be allowed to stay in his Brandermill home. If you want to give him a hug, I'd do it sooner rather than later.

4) Game 2 of the World Series is tonight on FOX where the Giants will be going for win number 2 over the Royals. Plus Little Big Town will be singing the National Anthem!

5) Tomorrow is $1,000 Thursday for the K95 Phrase That Pays... be sure you're signed up to win easy cash!

2) Apple Pay launched yesterday so that you can pay for things with your cellphone and have your information linked and ruin your life forever. Good luck!

4) We stumbled on the 4 secrets to help you never get sick: fresh air, relaxation, wash your hands and sleep alot. Lazy people must have the best health in the world!

It's Monday so we could only muster 4 things today...

1) Brad Pitt led the box office with his new WWII film, which proves that you can put this guy in anything and it'l sell a ticket. Just ask Lori!

2) According to a survey, 30% of us will liek about how GREAT our weekend was. Billy D's favorite lie is telling bartenders he's Catfish to get free drinks.

3) In a touching story a raven found injured in Henrico received what we guess is the first ever feather transplant (well, at least the first we've ever heard of). You can read about it in today's Times-Dispatch.

4) Colt McCoy got the Redskins their second win of the season! So if we change QB's every game maybe we'll have a chance!

1) So we found one of those quizzes that figures out your... *ahem*... exotic dancer name. Catfish is Rusty McDonald, Lori is Pokey Thompson and Billy D is Runt Southworth! Take your first pet's name and your mother's maiden name to find yours!

2) There are a few new movies in theaters this weekend but the only one we think will be worth a hoot is Fury, so there's our recommendation.

3) Apple has a brand new iPad Air 2 coming out and wants you to set up your finances on Apple Pay. Because sure, we all really trust how Apple handles info in the Cloud, don't we?

4) There are quite a few events you can dive into this weekend including the Souper Bowl, VA Hops & Barley Festival and the Kicking Chicken Wing Fest, so no excuse to have nothing to do!

5) Ebola. Just 'cause you can't have a daily wrap-up without it.

1) HBO is starting its own streaming service similar to Netflix! That wish you always had of a-la-carte cable channels looks like it'll come to fruition. Thanks internet!

2) Today is $1,000 day for the K95 Phrase That Pays... make sure you're signed up!

3) To make up for Virginia budget shortfalls Governor McAuliffe announed some state employees will lose their jobs and the markup on liquor in the Commonwealth will go up. Is it time for another Boston Tea Party?

4) Good news for the Redskins (hopefully!)... RGIII starting practicing with the team again. Maybe we'll turn this 1-5 record into at least a 2-14 before the year's through.

5) Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting the Oscars this year, which will mark the infinity-th year in a row that we haven't watched the Oscars.

1) No ebola in the Richmond! Yet. But don't panic.

2) Colonial Downs' fate may be decided today as they figure out whether horse racing will continue. If not they could be closed as November 1st, so be ready to place all your horse bets at bars instead!

3) Richmond's the new food center of the U.S.! Well, that's what we're saying since an RVA establishment, Rappahannock Restaurant, was named the #1 Best New Restaurant by Esquire Magazine!

4) Nascar is handing out the fines after last weekend's pushing and shoving. Well, at least Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart are getting fined, because they threw punches. The folks that just pushed and shoved didn't get fined, so evindently it's okay to fight like a girl in Nascar.

5) If you're not signed up for the K95 Phrase That Pays you better get signed up now... tomorrow we're giving away $1,000!

2) Ebola might be here in Richmond, so remember... WASH YOUR HANDS. And cover your mouth when you sneeze. And cough.

Oh, and here's our top things Christopher Columbus would say if he were alive today:


2) The first case of Ebola transmitted in the US was reported in Dallas. So you know, WASH YOUR HANDS.

3) With Brad Keselowski and other Nascar drivers going at it with fisticuffs this past weekend, evidently racing is entering a new era of cage matches and bodyslams... maybe the WWE is making it's way onto the track?
