Watch out drivers!

Wednesday, Aug, 14 2013

As a public service, today on the PhilCast one of the things I will be talking about is a warning for all you drivers.

Watch out for cars like this one.

Why?

You'll see....or better put....you'll HEAR on the PhilCast Wednesday afternoon.

Should smokers pay the price?

Tuesday, Aug, 13 2013

It's a simple question with a complicated answer that could have larger ramifications;
Should smokers have to pay more for health insurance coverage?

And if they do, then should people who are overweight also have to pay more?

And if they do, should people who chew tobacco have to pay more?

And if they do, should people who have dangerous jobs pay more?

And if they do, should people who like to sky dive pay more?

And if they do, should people who drive have to pay more?

You get the idea.
We'll discuss on the Tuesday PhilCast.

Dead Serious Car Show

Sunday, Aug, 11 2013

Coming up on the Monday PhilCast, the rather amazing and heart-warming story of this man...

Meet Todd Nelson.

You'll hear my feature story about the car you see there that was part of Saturday's show at Rico's Family Restaurant in Freedom.

Todd and his young son made it their project, a father-son bonding rite of passage.

Only Todd's son never saw the finished project.

You'll hear why and what this dad's message is to others as he goes from show to show with his "Everything Camaro".

Meantime, CLICK HERE for a photo gallery of my visit to the show on Saturday to see some sweet rides.

Rare weekend blog

Saturday, Aug, 10 2013

It dawns on me that I failed to post a fresh blog on Friday. My bad. I have a personal rule to  keep things fresh here by writing at least one new blog per day during the work week. Although I must be honest, my email box wasn't jammed with hordes of people who were disappointed at the lack of a Friday post!

Still, I feel I am making up for it by taking a break from my busy Saturday to post something about nothing.

What happened to the sun I was expecting Saturday? Instead of a long bike ride as planned I got myself into some projects around the new house, where I am alone with the dog for the weekend.

Somehow while unpacking another dozen boxes of stuff (most of which is old radio stuff for my home office) I managed to hurt my back. Once again there was no heavy lifting involved at all. How many times  has his happened to you? You reach down and suddenly out of nowhere you  collapse on the floor in pain! That's how it happened and all I was doing was leaning down to place an old radio on a shelf.

I few pills later and I'm still getting around....slowly. I've had worse.

So after a half day of working on and cleaning up the house, it's break time before heading out.
I'll be posting pictures from Rico's Family Restaurant classic car show in Freedom today . Then after that stop it's a quick spin through the Mile of Music in downtown Appleton. And after that, if I can still walk, I'm stopping in at a neighborhood party I was invited to so I can meet some of my new neighbors.

It's odd living apart from my wife this summer, but there is no shortage of things to keep me busy until she finally is able to leave her job in Waukesha and join me here in the Fox Valley.

Maybe I'll have some interviews from my adventures to play for you during the "HowzYer Weekend?" segment on the Monday PhilCast.

Baseball Thursday

Thursday, Aug, 8 2013

An afternoon game out west means there really won't be much of a PhilCast today if any at all.

We'll be back at it Friday.
