In this episode:

Did You Know- Tyler and Blake have a whole host of interesting facts for you. Seriously, an Extreme Gulp is THAT big?!

Riddlers- Lindsey and Maddie bring us some more great jokes and a riddle...MOOOO!

Top 5- Katie W. and David C. not only argue, they bring you the top things to do in the summer.

Our Perspective- Erica and Sarah Grace are back...in black! Well, sort of. You won't believe what they say is going on with chocolate.

Daredevil's Corner- I've always wanted to sing in Romanian, haven't you? Well listen to Carrie and Jenna sing one of our class favorites in its native tongue. You'll find yourself singing right along in no time.

Any Way You Want It- Vickie (oops, I mean V-Dog) and Kara have two special guests on this segment. You'll get a taste for brownies and puppy chow after listening. Here's Tori's brownie recipe. Give it a try.
4 square (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate
2/3 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
¾ cup chocolate chips (optional)

Heat oven to 350°. Grease rectangular baking pan,13x9X2 inches. Heat chocolate and shortening in 3-quart saucepan over low heat until melted; remove from heat. Stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Mix in remaining ingredients. Spread in pan. Bake until brownies begin to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 30 minutes. (Do not overbake.) Cool completely; cut into bars, about 2 X 1 ½ inches. Frost or sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes about 3 dozen; 140 calories each.

Well, that's it. Have an awesome summer, and tune in next fall to see what becomes of the Greypevine. We'll keep you posted on how things will change next year. Thanks for listening!

In this episode:

Any Way You Want It- Dan and Bryan bring you another YUMMY cookie segment with David C. as their guest. His recipe is so EASY, and we can tell you from experience, they sure are tasty cookies. Look how easy this is...mix 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 egg. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Sprinkle on some sugar, and don't forget to make that nifty criss-cross pattern with a fork. Also, Jamie reports in on his awesome collection of baseballs.

Daredevil's Corner- Have you ever rocked out on the air guitar? How about on the air keyboard...computer keyboard that is. Tori and Charlie give it a try while singing a very interesting song about the home row. We dare you to get the song out of your head once you listen.

Did You Know- Geckos. That's all we really need to say about this Did You Know. Just listen to what Vicky and Katie R. have to go through trying to give you some interesting facts.

Our Perspective- Have you ever tried selling something on eBay? Erica and Sarah Grace bring us a story about someone who takes eBay to a whole other level. Read the story by clicking here.

Email and Blog- McCall and David N. have one of our most prolific emailers in to chat about our show. They also give a desperate plea for more of your emails!

Top 5- Bill and Vanessa are put to the test when Tyler stops by to see if they can come up with a top 5 (well, top 10 really) list of things to do with a common household item. Check out their uncommon answers.

Riddlers- Ryan and Jamie keep us rolling with some pretty outstanding jokes. They also pose a riddle made up from one of our classmates. See if you can come up with the answer and email us your response.

Mix 1 cup of shortening, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 eggs, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the first bowl. Once mixed, add 1 regular bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Bake for 10 minutes at 375.

*Check out this shortcut that we don't mention in the show- Hold down the alt button and hit tab. If you have more than one program running, this will allow you to quickly change from one program to the next. If you have many programs open, just keep hitting the tab button while you hold the alt key to cycle through which program you want to select. Once you release the keys, the program you selected will pop up. Pretty handy.
