Click here to see the video from the story I have on the Friday PhilCast.

It's another example of why I say, "Dogs are awesome."

Facebook Fools

Wednesday, May, 11 2016

I'm going to check in on the Facebook news feed story today on the Wednesday PhilCast, using something I heard today from a CBS reporter that I happened to agree with on the topic.

The allegation from former employees is that the popular social media site filters it's "trending topics" with a liberal bias.

My bottom line is this, and it has nothing to do with liberal/conservative agendas...

Facebook is where grandma goes to see pictures of the kids.
Facebook is where teenagers go flirt perhaps.
Facebook is where people post pictures of how awesome they think their lives are.
Facebook is NOT a place you go to for news.

Facebook can do what it wants. It's just a social media site, nothing more.

If you want news, at least try to start with some place that has professional journalists with degrees working for them to bring you the news.

Bud--Wise--Er

Tuesday, May, 10 2016

What ever happened to the talking frogs?
That was my favorite Bud beer commercial.

Now they want to change their name.
Here's the label they want to go with...


"America"

No, really.
This is a thing....and it goes beyond this as well.

Bud is just full of flag-thumping coming this summer.

It's one of the things I'll be talking about on the Tuesday show.

"The Garden"

Monday, May, 9 2016

I wanted to share a little local gem we visited over the weekend, some friendly customer service, and a learning experience about a food I never knew about before.

The place?
"The Garden", a part green house, part garden, part produce, part locally-sourced food delivery small business in Neenah.

The food?
Ramps.
Who knew?
I didn't.

This is what they look like fresh from the ground, sort of like a scallion I guess.

We bought a few geraniums and while checking out, the guy behind the counter asked if we'd like to try some ramps.

Some what?

Ramps.

He gave a bag full and explained how he likes to cook them, using every bit of the plant you see except for the roots.

Then he also threw in a near-perfect-looking yellow tomato the size of my fist.

Sunday night we made use of everything he gave us, including following his recipe for preparing the ramps in olive oil, which of course in our house came from "The Olive Cellar."

Bang on.

The season for ramps is short. Check them out as the finished product with the burgers we made.
