Biking the bridge

Wednesday, May, 6 2015

I found this photo posted by the Post-Crescent newspaper quite powerful and relatable for me.

I think I will stop and do the same thing the next time I ride over the Trestle Trail Bridge, which will be very soon because it is a regular route of my many cycling routes.

As I tweeted to one of the paper's reporters, Jen, I don't know how I ever ride over that bridge again and not think of what happened there.

That's part of the damage that people like the shooter do to the community in the big picture when they do what he did.

But if you stop doing whatever it is that you were doing out of fear, then they win, which I won't be a part of.

So I'll ride...and probably with great respect and sorrow (like this rider) stop and remember the first time I go back across the water there since the senseless act of violence on Sunday evening.

Thanksgiving a real turkey?

Tuesday, May, 5 2015

As it turns out I now have a reason to pay attention to the bird flu story.

Up until now....not so much.

But now....
Now that my favorite holiday of the year could be compromised, I'm actually interested in the story.

Seems this bird flu could have an impact on the number of delicious turkeys available for the feast come November.

I'll have the complete story as part of the Tuesday PhilCast.

Shirtless in Seattle

Monday, May, 4 2015


I'm still not sure how a shirtless guy with a hammer ends up upside down, caught in a basketball net.

Yes, here it is.

Gotta ask the question also:
How many cops does it take to rescue a shirtless guy with a hammer hanging upside down from a basketball net?

It doesn't really seem like any of them are in a hurry to help.

A farewell to Pip

Friday, May, 1 2015

We close out the PhilCast week Friday with a show shortened by an afternoon Brewers' game in Chicago.

We should be on after the game ends around 4:30-ish when Mary Rhode of the Fox Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau stops by to talk weekend events.

Then we'll have what will be the final "ReciPIPPA the Week" with Pippa in Appleton.

It's been a good solid run for Pip and her Friday feature, but she has decided it is time to move on and keep her Friday afternoons free.

Pip has been offering up a little something once a week on the show since it started, and when the PhilCast came to WHBY that tradition just carried on.

We're glad it did.

It has been fun, and of course, she'll remain a PC Family member and may be checking in from time to time.

Thanks for all the great recipe ideas along the way Pip.

The new selfie stick?

Thursday, Apr, 30 2015

There it is....

For the selfie-loving self who wants to make it look like there was someone there with you who cared enough to take your picture....even though it was only you.

One of the goofy things I'll be covering on the Thursday PhilCast.

Bigger question on this photo seems like it should be about the statue growing out of her head.
