Jumpin' Zach Flash

Be sure to join me, Jumpin’ Zach Flash, for Central New York’s Greatest Hits every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Here are some things you may not know about me. My favorite musician is John Lennon (this explains my round glasses—it's NOT because I am a Harry Potter fan). My favorite John Lennon song has to be “Give Peace a Chance.” My favorite Beatles songs are “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Come Together.” My hobby is photography, and you can see a lot of my work right here on this website—search “Zach’s Weekly Snaps” to check out my photos.

Here’s Another Unique Marriage Proposal [VIDEO]

If you've been on YouTube for any amount of time, you have probably seen a wonderful one-of-a-kind marriage proposal. Some proposal videos out there have singers and even special movie productions. If you are using YouTube videos as a way to view trends in marriage proposals, it seems gone are the days of getting down on one knee in a restaurant and asking your sweetheart to marry you. Here is another one of those unique proposals. And I must say, the guy in this video has some really impressive wakeboarding abilities.

Here’s How to Harvest Sunflower Seeds [VIDEO]

Every year, I plant a little garden at my house. This year, I decided to add sunflowers. They are very beautiful to look at (you can see them in the picture--they are from my garden). However, the sunflowers I grew this year were not big enough to be able to harvest the seeds--there's always next year. But, if you do have giant sunflowers at your house, and you have always wondered how to harvest the seeds from the sunflowers, I found a pretty good video to show you how.

Do Dogs Really Know Right from Wrong? [VIDEO]

Can a dog really know what is right and what is wrong? For those of us with dogs, when our four-legged friend does something wrong, there is always that sad-puppy-dog look, right? And because our dogs give us that look, is that enough proof to show they know they did something wrong? For us dog owners, we usually think so. However, as you'll see in the video below, according to at least one researcher, it could just be dogs know how to react to their owners.

Being Vegan at the New York State Fair [PHOTOS]

It's fair time. Yes, the Great New York State Fair is in full swing. And for many people, the highlight of the annual fair is the food.

Well, I found a few places.

Favorite Tip Learned from the Internet–Zach’s Pick [VIDEO]

Every morning, I make a smoothie. It used to always take forever to make. I had to get out the blender, add my ingredients, blend and pour into a separate glass. It not only took a lot of time, but it also was a pain to clean up. One day, I found something very interesting on the Internet. And ever since I found it, making smoothies has never been easier. (Yes, I know this sounds like an infomercial, but this trick really works.) All you need are your blender blades and a mason jar. Essentially, you are turning a mason jar into a blender.

Have You Ever Heard of the Ukelin? [VIDEO]

So, have you? Do you know what ukelins are? The only reason I know about ukelins is because I was watching Antiques Roadshow, and a person brought one in to have it appraised. So, what exactly is it? The ukelin is a combination of a ukulele and a violin. Check out how it sounds.
