Enough with the flu shot video

Thursday, Jan, 10 2013

It's officially here and it's a bad one this year; Flu season has arrived.

We'll talk about how bad it is in the Fox Valley on the PhilCast today when he have a local expert on the subject on the show.

Meantime, one of my many pet peeves with TV news is the always-present video of people (and in some cases little kids screaming) getting a flu shot.

I know what a flu shot looks like.

I neither need nor want to repeatedly see people getting stuck with a big needle on the TV every time a station does a story about the flu season.

There, I got that off my chest.

And no, I never get a flu shot. And no, I'm not worried about a jinx on the subject now.
I bet you get a chuckle tonight when TV news does this story, complete with video of the dreaded needle being sunk into someone's flesh.

It's "Weigh-In Wednesday"

Wednesday, Jan, 9 2013

It has been one full week of detox for me, bringing us to the very first "Weigh-In Wednesday" report on the PhilCast.

If you are taking part, let me know how your first week went. Lose any? No change? Gain some?!

Send me an email and we'll keep track together for the next couple of months.

Then come April I say we celebrate with a big PhilCast pizza party somewhere!

Crazy stuff on TV last night

Tuesday, Jan, 8 2013

Should be a fun PhilCast today.

Brent checking out hotties in the stands at the national championship game on TV last night...
Piers Morgan takes a mouthful from a gun-toting loud mouth radio dude...
Roker talking about how he pooped his pants at the White House...

Like I said...

Should be a fun show on Tuesday.

I made the ReciPIPPA the Week

Monday, Jan, 7 2013

After Pack Yak from 3-4 today with Rich Ratay, "Howz Yer Weekend" leads off the 4-5 hour of the PhilCast.

Part of my weekend was making the 'ReciPIPPA the Week' from Pippa on Friday.

Here are the slo-cooker stuffed chicken rolls ready to come out of the pot.

There's a little prep work to get everything ready, but the payoff was a great smell throughout the house while we were taking down the Christmas tree on Sunday.



Here is my plate. Ham and Swiss melted inside that seasoned chicken breast was all very tasty.

Now I admit, I had three of these bad boys. But to my credit, since we are after all now in "Weigh-In-Wednesday" time of year, the only side dish I had was a fresh salad.

Remember you can always try the ReciPIPPA the week yourself by going to her page at thephilcast.com

Another hit Pip!

I give you, the "Tailly"

Friday, Jan, 4 2013

There it is in all its glory....

The "Tailly"

Today on the PhilCast we'll talk about this goofy thing that actually gives humans a tail that wags based on how you're feeling.

Yup...
It's wired right to you.

You're happy....you like someone....it picks up on that and starts to wag. That guy you meet at a bar is more annoying than interesting? He'll get a clue right away because your tail wouldn't be wagging with joy.

You can't make this stuff up.
