Dog Show!

Sunday, Feb, 9 2014

Move over Winter Olympics because it's time for the dog show.
Yup, it's Westminster time again, when Madison Square Garden goes to the dogs.

Monday and Tuesday night will find me right in front of the TV watching this annual event.

I'll be talking about a Wisconsin connection too.

That's Petey with handler Kevin Gasper of Oconomowoc. Petey is one of two dogs owned by Juneau Wisconsin's Linda Blaser.

Her breed is the Field Spaniel.

What great looking dogs. If I had a field to let them run in I'd have one.

She's my latest TV obsession

Friday, Feb, 7 2014

I've got a story coming up on the Friday PhilCast about what's called house flipping, where people buy houses on the cheap, make improvements and then sell for a quick profit.

Cable TV is LOADED with these shows. And my latest obsession is this little fireball, Nicole Curtis.

She focuses on old, character homes that are about to be torn down.

She not only rehabs them, but pays special attention to maintaining the original charm of the places, saving as much 'old' material for reuse as possible.

A) I like that

B) I learn about old houses by watching. (I own one and need to learn!)
((Nicole, can you come to the Fox Valley to help with our house?))

C) Her personality and energy are great.

D) Her boobs seem to take on a life of their own, since she insists on wearing low-cut tank tops most of the time she's sawing, painting, pulling down walls....whatever.

Sandy and I both laugh at some of the TV shots of her that no-doubt play up the fact that she's putting on a show in more ways than one!

Her show is called Rehab Addict. (Thursday nights)
She's on both HGTV and DIY Network.

The new cups are here

Tuesday, Feb, 4 2014

Thanks to local company Sunset Hill Stoneware in Neenah, who made up these custom PhilCast cups for me.

Manly tea cups is what I wanted for drinking a little hot tea during the show on these cold winter days, and manly cups I got!

In PhilCast color and complete with the show logo on them, I'd say they are the perfect size....and dishwasher and microwave safe to boot!

Click Here to see their website.
Thanks guys!
