Top Tweets

I love the text messaging social network called TWITTER and you can follow me on it, I use the name CW CHAT for my Live Chat on the CW News at Ten.

I often see really funny quotes, that all the creative tweeple (people who twitter) come up with! This one wins this week!

"Ice found on Mars. Still no scotch on which to pour it."
That's from Steviesaf

Street View Google Maps - Amazing!

Wow... have you heard? Have you already checked it out?

Google maps now offers street view for the Greenville area!

You can click on a little person at the location you are heading to, and see exactly what the location looks like! It's crazy.

Our anchor/reporter Chris Cato and I were chatting about this on set tonight, and he was kind of annoyed that at his house his wife's car is in the picture (though the tag is blurred out). Chris said, "I'm just glad they didn't take the picture when her boyfriend was there!" LOL!

Now Chris is just joking.. but imagine.. you are a cheater and they happen to take the shots when you're at the girlfriends place! YIKES!

There are people I follow on Twitter, like THINKHAMMER who want to know if any local folks have been captured in the shots. Have you seen yourself on Google Maps StreetView? Let me know.

I'm posting a video tour to show you what its like,so check it out and tell me what you think!!

BEHIND THE SCENES: Filling in, it isn't as easy as it looks

Chris Cato makes it look easy when he fills in for Tom Crabtree, but let me show you that its not!

Chris is an excellent reporter, and when he fills in anchoring, he still has to do that job too!

So tonight I caught him doing what I always see him doing when he's wearing both hats... using commercial breaks to write his intoduction and closing comments for his story.

So check it out, and hats off to Chris for wearing so many dog gone hats!
