Newspapers fading fast?

Tuesday, Aug, 11 2015

One of my topics of discussion on the Tuesday PhilCast will be a new survey about how we get our news these days.

Now, the leading source for news is on-line.
43% of people said they get most of their news from web sites.

That bumped TV down to second place, at 40%

Also significant is the fact that newspapers dropped to the lowest ranking they've seen yet.

The number isn't important. The placement IS.

Newspapers now rank below social media when it comes to where we go to find out the news, according to this Media Life magazine survey.

Oh, magazines?

A big hit...71% have seen declines in total circulation.

Let 'em eat cake

Monday, Aug, 10 2015

Who IS this man and why is he on Grayson's birthday cake?

For that matter, who is Grayson you may be asking?

Hint:

Grayson is a little boy who was celebrating a birthday.

That's NOT his dad on the cake.

It's one of the stories I'll have on the Monday PhilCast.

GOP Debate Review

Friday, Aug, 7 2015


So I watched most of the debate last night and will open the Friday PhilCast with a few observations from a non-political talk show host.

That means I will award what I felt was the best joke, (not the biggest joke) of the night among other things.

4:30-ish it's
"HowzYer Weekend"

Also, the return of "Rascal of the Week" today.

Pictures from Italy

Thursday, Aug, 6 2015


Brewers on HBY this afternoon, meaning the PhilCast will start a little late, about 4:30.

Meantime, I've made good use of the extra time by posting a sampling of some pictures from our trip to Northern Italy with Fox World Travel.

If you look at them while you are hungry, I apologize.

If you look at them when you are not hungry, you will be soon.

Pasta.

Drink More Beer!

Wednesday, Aug, 5 2015

So it turns out that the fountain of youth has a head on it...

Today on the PhilCast, the story of 110-year-old Agnes Fenton of Jersey.

Her secret to a long life?

She says her doctor told her 70 years ago to drink three Miller High Life's a day.

She does.
Plus a shot of scotch.

Cheers.
