Kimberly Papermakers (3)

Saturday, Nov, 21 2015

Snow and all, this is a great picture that I had to lift from Twitter and post here.

That was one hell of a game Friday night.

I don't think I could have had a more Fox Valley experience than my Friday night watching the Papermakers making it three titles in a row.

There I was with the rest of the crowd at a local institution, Van Able's (my first time there) enjoying a traditional Friday night fish fry with a little Friday Night Lights on one of the several big-screens in the restaurant.

As we talked at our table with a couple of friends we were dining with I kept glancing up at a screen projecting the game in the dining room.

I could hardly believe the comeback I was watching while downing delicious fish and a Bloody Mary with string cheese crawling out of the top of the tall glass.

Now THAT's Wisconsin.

Arrowhead must have thought they had done enough. Tough loss for them. All players involved should be proud of a great season.

Black ISIS gold

Thursday, Nov, 19 2015

Follow the money.

ISIS oil, to the tune of $40 bucks a month funding them.

Who buys ISIS oil?

They've got oil...
They've got money.

They've got a magazine...
They've got a help line.


I'll discuss at the start of the Thursday PhilCast.

Father of the year IMHO

Wednesday, Nov, 18 2015

I'm not a dad.

If I was a dad, I'd like to think I would be as good a dad as this guy.

The audio is in French, but the message transcends language.

Today on the PhilCast I'll be playing the clip that has now gone viral...with good reason.

At a memorial in Paris this father calms and explains to his young son about the bad guys with guns.

I was mesmerized by this the first time I saw it.
I still am.
Guns vs. flowers.

Dad makes the flowers win.

Tinted turkeys

Tuesday, Nov, 17 2015

I call it the countdown to Thanksgiving, and the clock keeps on ticking....clucking...gobbling...whatever.

Today on the PhilCast, the story of the tradition behind these birds.

It started as a little way to entertain some local kids and now it has become a tradition that draws crowds in buses just to visit the farm where these beauties are kept.

Question is, how do these turkeys get their color?

That's part of the story I will have on the Tuesday PhilCast show.

I wonder if the color leaks into the meat for a rather unique platter of turkey on the how the dye from the Easter eggs sometimes turns the color of the egg inside?

The pink ones could make a good breast cancer awareness statement.....or just make good breast meat to eat on Thanksgiving.
