"Tour de PhilCast II"

Friday, Sep, 6 2013

We're doing it again PhilCast Family...a group bike ride for listeners to meet and greet and have some fun on two wheels. A family event that will feature two groups of riders, we'll share stories, snacks and refreshments afterward at host and PhilCast sponsor, "Gear 'N Up" bike shop in Neenah, WI

CLICK HERE to get to the Gear 'N Up web site.

The Date: Saturday, September 21st
The Time: We roll out at 3:00 p.m. from the shop
The Ride: Justin at Gear 'N Up will be leading one group that will be taking a route of about 30 miles at a moderate pace. I'll be leading a group that will go about 20 miles at an easy pace. We encourage all levels of riders who are fans of the show to take part.

This is a social riding event. No one is left behind. Plus, we'll make sure we have riders with mad skills to make sure you have help if there is a mechanical issue along the way.

Also, as part of the gathering afterward, we'll put the names of all riders into a helmet and do a drawing for some PhilCast gear. And that will include a few custom-made Tour de PhilCast T-shirts made by non-other than SuperFan Judy herself.

So that we have an idea of how many of you may be attending that afternoon, could you please send me an email with an RSVP...even if it's only possible that you may be riding. Bring a guest. Bring some riding friends. Bring some club members.

We did this a couple of years ago and it turned out to be a really fun way for listeners to meet each other thanks to bikes and riding!

Should be lots of fun. Hope to see you there.

Bikes & Baseball

Friday, Sep, 6 2013

The Brewers play Friday afternoon on WHBY.

And with a little later start, it looks like there will only be about an hour of the PhilCast.

So no "Chadoin' This Weekend?" and even the ReciPIPPA the Week might be in jeopardy this week.

I'm going to give a bike ride a try today while the weather is nice. I plan to meet up with a PhilCast listener who is an avid cyclist and has been wanting to take a bike ride together for some time.

I'll post a report on my blog afterward of course. CLICK HERE for that riding blog.
Speaking of riding, we're thinking of putting together a PhilCast listener ride out of Gear 'N Up in Neenah later this month perhaps. Would you be interested in a little, easy-paced fun social ride together?

Drop me an email if you would:

Stop the madness!

Thursday, Sep, 5 2013

There it is.
The next big thing....and just in time for Christmas. Imagine that.

We're sheep in this country.

We want, no, gotta have, the latest, greatest coolest thing to show off to our friends. You're only as hip as your tech gadgets, right?

"Like, God, she's still using like, like a laptop thingy. GAWD. OMG!"

We're tech crazy, even when we don't really need it. And we're lazy.

So that's why I guess this newfangled "SmartWatch" will be a hit.

Who wants to fumble around looking for a cell phone when a text, email, notification, or heaven forbid even an actual PHONE CALL comes in? Now all you'll have to do is look at your watch.

Heck, you can even surf the net there. I would suggest you get your eyes checked first though. Good luck reading all that info on a screen that's less than two inches.

Stop the madness I say.

Remembering passwords

Wednesday, Sep, 4 2013

How many passwords do you have?
Oh yeah, user I-D's too.

Lets be honest, it's a pain to try and remember all those passwords and user I-D's.

Write 'em down in an effort to remember? Well that kinda ruins the whole idea of passwords now doesn't it?

But coming up on the PhilCast today, the future of this dilemma I believe. New technology that could soon change the way we have to remember this stuff to get in and out of all the places they make us now go on-line.

Beer Sandwich?

Tuesday, Sep, 3 2013

Yup.
How about a beer sandwich?

I'll explain in a couple of stories about odd new foods coming out.

A beer spread is one of them. The other is a deep-fried soup.

That, plus "HowzYer Weekend?" stories after the long Labor Day Weekend....on the Tuesday, back-to-school PhilCast.
