50 Reasons Not to Have Kids by Joe Sidoni

I did a really fun and funny interview with my dear friend Joe Sidoni that I hope you will take the time to listen too. Especially if you need a laugh or want to be silly. The interview is on constant streaming 24/7 on or just click on to Big Media USA at my website

As you can see from his picture, Joe is a hoot plus he is quite aware of all the difficulties raising kids since he has been a single Dad for a long time. As you can guess, he loves doing stand up and no one ever tells him to sit down.

Here is what Joe had to say about my book:

"Thou Shalt Not Whine is a wonderful book! Even though january Jones is nicer than Dr. Laura and prettier than Dr. Phil, she still made me see another side in me. I had to admit that I too can be a Whiner! I had to laugh about her husband and all the pillows though, because I too can't understand all the pillows - especially the ones we're not allowed to use! I blame it all on HGTV! But here I go whining again!
Only now I catch myself...and smile. I think I'm gonna go out and buy another pillow for our bed!"    

Now you can see why, I adore this guy!

CBS Sports World Series of Golf with and January Jones

January......... Thou Shalt Not Whine!!!!

There has been and interesting event in my life and I thought you might enjoy hearing about it. This will be an on going human inter story for the next ten months. I have been selected to play in the CBS sports World Series of golf next May 11-13th in Las Vegas sponsored by 

Buckeye, my husband entered us both and guess who got picked? I will be competing as one of 125 (mostly men with a few token women playing). 

Can I play golf?  Yes!  Am   I good?  No!

Believe me, I'm going to try to have fun with it and promote my book on national television. However, becoming a reality TV golf/gambler player has never, ever been on my personal bucket list. 

So now in my spare time, I will be getting ready and training for the biggest event in my husband's fantasy golf career. Buckeye gets to ride along as my caddie/financial advisor through out the entire event.

The Take Home Chef Curtis Stone Blurb for Thou Shalt Not Whine

Everyday we TiVo The Take Home Chef starring the Australian Lad Curtis Stone on The Learning Channel. 

The show is a hoot and Curtis is an amazing host with so much charm, humor and really, really good looks. The show's concept is one of the more amusing reality entertainments on the air. 

Curtis literally picks up people in supermarkets, shops with them and then takes them home to cook a surprise meal for their partner.  

I hosted Curtis on my radio show Thou Shalt Not Whine on and the if you get a chance go to the archive and listen to a fabulous interview even if I do say so myself.

Then after the show Curtis sent us his cookbook with a special message for my non-cooking husband. Also, he wrote a lovely blurb for my book which I will share with you right now. Obviously, we both share a major choco-holic addiction.

"As to January's chocolate cure for whining, I am a self-confessed chocolate lover. Anything with chocolate makes me drool."
                Curtis Stone, author of Cooking With Curtis 

Remember stop whining right now and it that doesn't work then you'd better start eating chocolate, lots and lots of it.  January Jones

Curves International Diane Heavin Blurb for Thou Shalt Not Whine.....The 11th Commandment

I just got the final copy for the cover of Thou Shalt Not Whine and I was so very pleased to see that my publisher used Diane Heavin of Curves International's lovely quote about my book.

"January Jones is the undisputed expert on whining. Her laugh-out-loud book left out only one tiny detail - whining burns calories! Truly, the cure for whining isn't just her fabulous book, but January Jones herself."

Diane Heavin, Founder of Curves International 

Phil Gramm & John McCain Whining about Whining Thou Shalt Not Whine to the Rescue

I can't believe it but now the latest political controversy is all about whining about whining.

Apparently Senator Phil Gramm who is/was one of John McCain's closest advisors was recently whining about all the whining that is going on in the country.  

As I've always said (and the reason I wrote my book) this is going to be a great year for whining. Between the elections, the economy, the environment and everything else, it is Whine Time and there's enough to go around for everyone. 

Unfortunately, my book won't be in book stores until the middle of August but that didn't keep my new little, adorable friend on the cruise ship from reading it and having a good laugh with me. She deals with whiners all day long and has the perfect solution for them. It comes in a tall glass, with a little paper umbrella with lots of pineapple and cherries and just s touch of dark rum. There's absolutely No whining after drinking one of those.

No Whining While Dining on the Carnival Paradise

While I was on the cruise, the dining room was my favorite place to visit and everyone there was so friendly and the food was fabulous.

Needless to say, there was no Whining While Dining which is something we did at least three times a day and then some. 

Now it's time to cut back and go back to Curves and get more exercise.

Mexican Cruise with Thou Shalt Not Whine & Freddie

I just got back from a cruise to Mexico and had so much fun promoting my book, Thou Shalt Not Whine ....The Eleventh Commandment on the ship, The Carnival Paradise.

It was just a short trip but wonderful to get away and enjoy ship board life.  It was so much fun and I even got a big hug from Freddie the Carnival mascot. He loved my book and doesn't allow any whining on board.
