Keith Anderson Bio 
Timetraxx host Keith Anderson hails from the Rock and Roll capital of Cleveland, Ohio. That may explain his penchant for the popular music of the mid 20th century. His first childhood memories are of the tabletop radio in the kitchen.

“I was born in 1955 so you might think it was Chuck Berry or Elvis that are my first impressions, but it was actually Lawrence Welk, who had a Number 1 Top 40 hit in 1960 with 'Calcutta',” Keith recalls.

Throughout his school years, he would seldom be seen without a portable transistor radio, twirling the knob to hear all the powerhouse radio stations in area – WIXY, WJW, WHK, and WKYC and the radio disk jockeys who would inspire him to pursue a career in broadcasting.

“I had no idea that the military had a broadcasting activity until I was stationed overseas,” he said.

BUNNY DUMPING

It's Easter time again and sadly that means trouble for a number of the nation's animal shelters. Every year around this time a large number of adorable little bunnies get dumped at animal shelters because families acquire the critters without realizing what difficult house guests they can be. Kris Best, a spokeswoman for the Humane Society said, "It's a big problem. Rabbits are now the third most common animal to be given up after dogs and cats."

Bless This Mess Is a Tribute to the Beauty of Nature and Chickens and Cows. Dax Shepard and Lake Bell are trading city life for country life on Bless This Mess, and it's a big change not just for the characters, but for the actors themselves. "I'm doing a lot of weird things I've never done in real life, like bathe chickens, and care for them," Shepard told E! News when we visited the set of the new ABC comedy. "Lotta chickens in this show!" The series finds Rio (Bell) and Mike (Shepard) as a young couple in their first year of marriage who move from the big city to an old farmhouse in the middle of Nebraska. Bell created the series alongside Liz Meriwether, and Bell also directed the pilot. She says the natural environment of the show made it a more pleasant set to work on. "We are shooting very much entrenched in beauty every day, and I think it does something for our spirit here on Bless This Mess," she says. "It's good for the sou…

The 19-month siege ended thanks to the FBI. Ellen: "Nobody actually knows what really happened. Assumption being Patty Hearst might've become somehow involved with these people. I've not yet seen the film. We shot in Canada. Anyhow, between shooting and editing, things in moviemaking often change. "In this film, another hiding with her is an Asian woman who later works as my assistant. My character's a person watching heiress Patty, whom I do not know. A special scene is when I realize who she is. "Listen, I already did three films this year -- 'Lucy in the Sky' with Jon Hamm and Natalie Portman and 'Welcome to Pine Grove!', a retirement home love story with James Caan and Ann-Margret.
