Mr. Doty Island wanted what?

Wednesday, Jun, 4 2014


So this is the guy who has an island named after him in Neenah.

Meet James Doty.

I bring him up on the show today because as it turns out he wanted our beloved state of Wisconsin to be spelled very differently than it is now.

And I bring THAT up because of a new segment on the PhilCast that will open the Wednesday show.

It's something called, "The Name Game", when I give you a list of my wife's latest pet peeve; Goofy spellings of names or just goofy names outright.

See the how it all goes together with Doty here now?
He had some bizarre French spelling of Wisconsin that he was obsessed with.

We'll discuss.

Craigslist vs. Rummage Sale

Tuesday, Jun, 3 2014

It's rummage sale time of year.
Do you like rummaging?
Will you hold a sale this season?

Bigger question; Is Craigslist cutting into the popularity of rummage sales?

I have a story today about the most popular 'stuff' we all have in our garages and basements that ends up in the rummage sales we see.

We'll discuss on the Tuesday PhilCast.

Casey and Alice

Monday, Jun, 2 2014

What a mess.
The fight revolving around Casey Kasem has gotten so ugly now that hamburger meat has been flung.
I am not sure Casey realizes it at this point in his failing health however.

I'll discuss on the Monday show.

Ride that suitcase

Friday, May, 30 2014

Those darned Chinese….what’ll they think of next?

Check this out...

Every time I see the picture it makes me laugh….

A farmer in China has invented a motorized suitcase…basically you can carry your clothes and take yourself to the airport at the same time.

The contraption is the brainchild of He Liang, a farmer from Hunan Province.

It can carry up to two passengers, cover distances of up to 37 miles and maintain a speed of up to 12mph.
Sure, but what's the TSA gonna say about this?!

Struck by lightning

Thursday, May, 29 2014

Storm chasers are an interesting bunch.

It is inherently dangerous, and some would say stupid, yet who among us isn't fascinated by the power of Mother Nature when she gets upset?

I'll have the story of a storm chaser who was out in South Dakota filming a rainbow when he was blasted by lightning....all recorded!

Click here to watch....and turn up the sound.
BAM.

He's fine.
We'll chat storm chasers Thursday.

Meantime, think twice about fooling with Mom Nature this storm season.
