Baby it's cold outside...

Monday, Jan, 21 2013

I'm no fan of this cold weather.

There should be a name for it that goes beyond cold when it's dangerous.

I can think of a few names to call it, but they are not fit for print here.

Furnaces, cars, pets, and of course those among us without a roof over their heads...all will be talked about to start the PhilCast Monday with a series of interviews with experts in each one of those areas.

It's a triple-header of days today too...Blue Monday, Inauguration Day, MLK Day. That, plus I have a story about some great customer service to share during "Howz Yer Weekend?" today...it involves a rather unique drink I found over the weekend...



I know it may sound odd at first blush, but this sparkling cucumber drink was really refreshing and quite good.

Eating out less these days?

Friday, Jan, 18 2013

The "Buzzer" Marureen Wallenfang drops by the PhilCast this afternoon at 3:30-ish to talk about one of her recent columns in the Post-Crescent regarding people eating out at restaurants less these days.

Are you? If so, why? She's got the buzz on local restaurant 'stuff' as well.

4:20-ish=The Watters Plumbing "Drip of the Week"
4:45-ish=The "ReciPIPPA the Week"

And I start Friday's show with my take on what I saw from Lance Armstrong last night with Oprah. You might be surprised because I've got some high praise ready to let loose on a couple of fronts.

Where to see the Lance Armstrong interview

Thursday, Jan, 17 2013

Tonight at 8:00 Oprah airs the first of her two-part, two-night interview with Lance Armstrong.

If you, like me, do not get her OWN television network any longer (thank you for that by the way Time/Warner Cable) you can watch it streamed live at her web site also.

Click Here to get to that.


This huge TV event and THAT's the background for the shot? In front of a hotel window with glasses with straws in them. Nice.

Every Wednesday I'll have some healthy-eating and/or weight loss stories to start the PhilCast as well.

I'm over him like a bad divorce

Tuesday, Jan, 15 2013

Full coverage of the Lance Armstrong confession to kick off the Tuesday PhilCast, including my take on how I see this sad story unfolding.

Being a pretty serious cyclist since my total hip replacement surgery in the fall of 2000, I looked to Lance's story for inspiration and motivation as did millions of people.

I once remember having a very candid conversation with Lance's mom over a lunch where I introduced her at an event promoting a book she had written. From my memories of that day, I guess you could say lance had his own mom duped too.

This may not be a big deal for you, but it IS to me...and I'll talk about why when we chat this afternoon on the show.
