Got Ice?

Friday, Aug, 22 2014

I did...in a long, cold pour!

Yep, did the Ice Bucket Challenge just moments ago at Sturdevant & Associates in Neenah. Joined the Good Neighbor, Kathy Keene, along with numerous others, who took the icy bath!

It's all part of the ALS Association's effort that has exploded in the past few weeks.  I challenged anyone who has thought about it, but has yet to do it, to go ahead---do it!

Video will be posted soon!

Ice Bucket Challenge?

Wednesday, Aug, 20 2014

OK--it's time to get wet!

I am going to talk today about the Ice Bucket Challenge--you've seen it  all over the place, with amazing awareness for ALS, the disease that took Lou Gehrig's life.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to tell me how you want me to take the challenge. Right here in the Woodward parking lot, at a particular location, what type of bucket, who should I challenge----I'm loking for input!!  One caveat: I want to complete the challenge this week, by Friday afternoon at the latest!

Listen to WHBY this morning and I will ask for input--and you can respond right here at my blog!

Thanks!

EAA/weather

Wednesday, Jul, 30 2014

Quick mention on yesterday's rain: Isn't it amazing how we take it for granted when it's gone....I had to re-plant some grass around my driveway, and we had little or no rain for weeks! Good to see I don't have to drag that hose back out for a couple of days!

Hey, join us all week for EAA Air Venture reports, and specifically Thursday morning at 8:40, when we talk with a pilot who assists with Wisconsin Honor Flights. Probably has a great story or two...

Bear!

Tuesday, Jul, 22 2014

Maybe you've heard me relate the bear story on WHBY. If not, here it is:

On vacation a week or so ago, we were on a popular trail in Montana. We had just crossed a creek and I was walking just 10-12 yards ahead of my wife, Shelly, when she yells out "Dave, stop!"  I'm thinking it must be a deer or something else that won't tear my arm off...but no, she blurts out "bear", turns and takes off!  Yep, nothing but dust!  Her hat goes flying and she's not going back for it! 

So, there I am...and to retreat back down the trail, I have to go past where she saw this black bear.  I start fast-walking, which may not be the best way to get away from a bear, but it worked for me!  I fetched Shell's hat and continued trekking back down the trail.  I did not personally spot the bear, but she says there was NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!!   Claims it was about 20 yards to the left of the trail... So, we finish heading back, making sure to mention our spotting to all that were heading up the trail at the time.

Guess what we bought at the local hardware store the next day?  Yep, bear spray.  The nastiest, most foul stuff you could shoot at a bear short of a howitzer.  It's now my constant companion on hikes, even though I have heard that some people are attacked despite hitting the bear with this nasty spray.  If they're angry or hungry enough, nothing will stop them. 

Oh, didn't mention that that was 20 minutes into our very first hike of the vacation.  Imagine how our heads were on swivels for the rest of the week!!
