Ex-Lax for the Appleton city council

Thursday, May, 16 2013

Somebody give them some Ex-Lax and lets get this thing flowing and done already.
AGAIN, the proposed bike lane project for Mason Street has been shoved aside and sent back to committee without a vote.

How much more can be debated about this?

Someone comes up with an alternative and someone else gripes about it.

Just take a vote and move on. You're never going to please everyone. Someone is going to be disappointed when a decision is made. But that's part of being a politician. You can't make 'em all happy, but at least do your job. We've heard all the arguments.

One way or the other....but come on already. Vote.

Stupid study of the day

Wednesday, May, 15 2013

Ya gotta wonder some times about why in the world people are paid to do studies about the obvious.

Where does this money to waste time doing this come from?

And why in the world do we need a study to tell us this brilliant headline I saw today and will talk more about on the PhilCast?


"Death most likely in smaller, lighter vehicle in a two-vehicle crash"

Wow.
Really?
That's cutting-edge stuff.

Chocolate bullets note

Tuesday, May, 14 2013

There it is....

A second-grade student in Milwaukee wrote a note to the vice president suggesting people use chocolate bullets so no one would get hurt when they are shot.

Joe Biden sent back a hand-written note to young Myles for the effort.

Kinda cool.

Chocolate bullets. Amazing how a kid's mind works. If only it were that simple.

I give you the "Waffle Taco"

Monday, May, 13 2013

There it is; The Waffle Taco

You can't get it around here, but word is that Taco Bell is trying this new menu item out in California at this time.

It's basically a breakfast taco wrapped in a waffle that is served with syrup.

Yes? No? Maybe?

Happy Anniversary

Friday, May, 10 2013

Well I won't lie, it seems odd to be here in Wisconsin on a cold, dank day working rather than walking the beach looking for seashells on Sanibel Island on this date.

20 years ago today Sandy and I were married on the island, and for almost all of the years to follow we have vacationed there on this very week to mark the occasion. Due to scheduling conflicts we'll be returning there in September rather than May.

Back then there was no digital camera or fancy cell phone to take pictures with, so earlier today I snapped a photo of a framed wedding picture to share digitally on line.

I'm not sure how the heck 20 years have passed so quickly. All I know is that it has been a damned good 20 years.

Am I boring you yet?

OK, onward to something about the PhilCast, since I AM, after all, WORKING today...

I'm bringing back "Chadoin' This Weekend" as of today, but with a twist this year.

On Fridays after the 4:30 news when we do the segment, the newest member of the PhilCast 'regulars' will join us, starting today.

Not only will we talk about our plans for the weekend, but Mary Hirvela of the Fox Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau will be on with us each week to chat up some of the events taking place around the Fox Cities.

Maybe you'll get an idea of something to do. Maybe you'll want to plug an event taking place. Maybe you just have some exciting plans to share with us. It's basically an exchange of ideas and information about what's up for the upcoming weekend.

So, "Chadoin' This Weekend?"

Feel free to call in during the segment, or email me details ahead of time.

281-1150 or toll-free 1-886-887-1150
