We blew into August in Central New York on the summer wind, and got a head start on the dog days of summer, with our eye on summer TV, the latest and most creative uses of Alexa, some help from some great callers, another great series of benchmark segments...and...Cows. Running. Amok.

Click the video for a brief montage and/or follow along to the description below of The Best of Beth & Dave on the Lite 98.7 morning show for the week of August 6, 2018.

Fast cows. The evidence occurred in our favorite state of the union (Florida), as a criminal stole a car, crashed it, took off on foot, and was chased by a herd of cows. A local expert filled us in on some missing details.

Boneless Mice. A note from a listener about a stupid dispute in her house led to a rich discussion about The Dumbest Things You've Ever Believed.

Liberty Bell. It's not just a famous artifact in Philadelphia, as we found out in another rousing edition of our daily 8:15 feature, Yo Momma Must Be So Proud.

New uses for Alexa. Apparently the digital butler's now being deployed as a home security device. We had some other ideas.

The Bachelorette. Who actually watches this TV show? Is anyone actually BUYING it? We have our theories.
