Bear takes a nap in yard

Wednesday, Jul, 22 2015

I'll be doing a double-barrel Arm-BEAR-geddon 2015 Bear Alert on the PhilCast after the Brewers' game on Wednesday.

One hits close to home.

The other is THIS guy, who stole a 20-lb bag of dog food from a guy's house, ate it all, then took a nap in the dude's back yard!

Horrible jet seating plan

Tuesday, Jul, 21 2015

There it is.
Finally, a good depiction of this proposed hexagon seating arrangement that an airline seat manufacturer is proposing.

Thanks to our PhilCast research department (a.k.a. Lori
in Fond du Lac) for the link.

e story)

This is a horrible idea.

You DO sit there in the middle pretty much looking right at strangers.

And by using this configuration the airlines figure they can cram about 80 more passengers into the sardine can formerly known as an aircraft.

I hope this company doesn't get the patent for this.

Gnome place for the gnome

Monday, Jul, 20 2015

Here's what all the fuss is about, a gnome mooning people.

(I can't help but think of that travel commercial on TV and what they could do with THIS guy in a new spot)

Anyway, the police were called because a neighbor said his children were 'disturbed' by this being next door.

By the way, one of the kids is a teenager. Seems like they're the ones 'disturbed' to me.

The story on the Monday PhilCast.

Hot fun in the summertime

Friday, Jul, 17 2015

Hot & humid.

I LOVE it.

Summer is too short to complain about the heat.

This weekend is going to be hot and humid and jam-packed with area events taking place.

I wish the summer was longer and the weekends were more frequent se we could spread out some of these events. There's so much going on over two days that I would like to be able to attend more things.

We'll cover some of this stuff on the Friday show with "Chadoin' This Weekend?" at 4:30-ish.

Meantime, stay hydrated....and remember that beer does NOT count as staying hydrated!

Shopping at Kohl's

Thursday, Jul, 16 2015

I guess Scott Walker would be proud.

I shopped for shirts on sale at Kohl's last night.

The thing is, it would have been nice to buy something made in the USA, but alas, I looked at the tags on the merchandise pulled from the famous sale racks....

Taiwan and Indonesia.
