FRED MCNAUGHTON – So many listeners want to see the new studio at the Junction Center. We aren’t quite ready for a visit yet. Lisa did have time to take a quick picture of her new view. This is what Lisa sees from her new perch in the new studio. I hope it doesn’t scare you! =]
FRED MCNAUGHTON – Our friend and Lancaster native, Keith Baum is serving with SEND INTERNATIONAL and is currently traveling in Taiwan. We had the opportunity to interview Keith live on the air, along with SEND Regional Director, Scott Powell about how SEND’s staff in Japan has been affected by the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear emergency.
SEND International has 43 adult missionaries and 32 children serving in Japan.
Current conditions that are affecting the missionaries and their families are…
• Major aftershocks from the earthquake
• Scarcity of food and supplies
• Lack of train service
• Blackouts and Brownouts
• Gasoline is limited.
• Okutama Bible Chalet is closed because of food shortages and lack of train service.
• CAJ (Christian Academy of Japan) is closed this week because of the lack of train service, but virtual classrooms have started for the students.
Other current factors in Japan:
• Three embassies are advising nationals to leave.
• Three airlines are suspending flights to Tokyo.
• One mission organization has evacuated wives and children.
You can help SEND be an integral part of meeting the needs, physically and spiritually, of those who have been affected by the events in Japan, by visiting their website and making a donation.

WJTL’s Lisa Landis shares a Christmas memory.
EDDIE DANIELS – Yesterday I posted a blog about a mystery food lurking in the WJTL refrigerator. Without any evidence, I went ahead and accused Lisa Landis as being the culprit who left the baggie of UFO (Unidentified Food Object) and it turns out I was correct. Eat your heart out, Gwenda Gumshoe!
In a comment left on the blog, Lisa confessed to leaving them in the fridge and identified them as sugar plums.
Seriously? Sugar plums?
I’ve never seen a real-life sugar plum. Actually, I’ve never seen a photo of one. Or a drawing, even. The only time I’ve ever heard of them is in the Christmas poem where the kids have “visions of sugar plums” dancing in their heads. But in all the books I used to see this poem in, the accompanying drawing reveals the kids are actually dreaming of candy canes.
So now I’m left with even more questions that I’m too lazy to Google on my own. Are sugar plums a natural food, or are they sweetened and man-made, like candied apples? Do you just eat them with your fingers? Do they have pits? Are they actually plums, or do they just happen to have plums in their name?
I’ll be honest, seeing as how this was my first encounter with sugar plums, it may have ruined me on them even before I’ve had the opportunity to taste them. Sorry sugar plums. I’m prejudiced against you now.

EDDIE DANIELS – It’s probably wrong of me to assume it was Lisa Landis who left this mystery food in the WJTL refrigerator. But since she’s on vacation this week and not here to defend herself, I’m going to do it anyhow.
Lisa is my prime suspect mostly because she has a history of bringing in random food items such as the one(s) pictured below. The only other person who uses the fridge on a regular basis is John, but he’s very good at making his usual sandwich, banana, and yogurt disappear during the lunch hour.
But my biggest concern isn’t who left these weird deep-red mystery items in an unsealed plastic bag. My concern is what are they? I haven’t bothered to smell them because I’m not that brave. They appear to be small plums. Or large cherries. Or beets. Or something else I haven’t thought of.
I’m also not sure why they are all three in different stages of decay. One seems perfectly round, one looks a little bruised, and the third looks downright smooshed.
Have a look. What do you think they are?
