From today’s show: REASONS CONSUMERS DON’T DROP THEIR HOME PHONE _ Don’t hang up your home phone just yet. When Consumer Reports asked readers why they subscribed to home phone service instead of relying solely on their cell phones, the reasons included habit, price, reliability, and quality. Here are the top reasons (in order) cited for keeping their landline.
• I have always had a home phone line.
• I’m not sure I can rely on cell phone service if I have an emergency.
• My home phone service has better sound quality than my cell phone.
• I don’t want to give up my phone number.
• I use my home phone line for business purposes/home office.
• Cell phone service is unreliable at home.

SIX THINGS MEN SHOULDN’T DO ON THEIR HONEYMOON _ Getting married? Listen up, men — don’t do these things on your honeymoon.
• NEGLECT YOUR PARTNER’S PREFERENCES – The honeymoon is a shared experience, so it’s crucial to consider your partner’s interests when planning activities.
• BRING WORK ALONG – Even if she knows she married a workaholic, your honeymoon is not the time to check emails, hop on Slack, or join a zoom. This time is meant to be about you and your partner, not about your work.
• SKIMP ON ROMANCE – Remember, this is your honeymoon, not just a regular vacation. Make sure to plan a number of romantic gestures and surprises.
• TRY TO DO TOO MUCH – It’s natural to want to make the most of your time, but over-planning or trying to pack too many activities into each day can lead to exhaustion and stress. Allow for relaxation and spontaneous adventures.
• FORGET TO UNPLUG – Constantly checking your phone or iPad can detract from the intimacy and escape that a honeymoon should provide. Take this time to truly disconnect from the outside world and focus on your partner.
• PRIORITIZE SPORTS OVER YOUR PARTNER – Yeah, there’s a big game or two while you’re on your honeymoon — but she should mean way more than a sports team. Unless she’s into the game, turn off sports.

QUICK JOKE _ Before performing a baptism, the Priest approached the young father and said solemnly, “Baptism is a serious step. Are you prepared for it?” “I think so,” the man replied. “My wife has made appetizers and we have a caterer coming to provide plenty of cookies and cakes for all of our guests.” “I don’t mean that,” the Priest responded. “I mean, are you prepared spiritually?” “Oh, sure,” came the reply. “I’ve got a keg of beer and a case of whiskey.”
