Discovering Neenah

Friday, Jan, 25 2013

This Sunday afternoon in Neenah you'll get a chance to see a TV show before it goes on TV.

It's the premier of John McGivern's Neenah episode of his PBS show "Around The Corner".

John joins me in the studio this afternoon at 4:30 to talk about the episode and some of the things he himself discovered in Neenah.

The episode will air on PBS next month. It includes his visit to Waupaca as well.

John travels the state with camera crew in tow, discovering all sorts of hidden and not-so-hidden treasures of the communities that make Wisconsin special. We'll talk about that and tell you how you too can attend this Sunday's premier in Neenah.

Oh, and if you are into trivia be listening after the 4:00 news today because the 'Grand Master' of the Lawrence University Great Midwest Trivia Contest stops by to talk about the annual global competition that begins tonight and runs for 50 straight hours.

National Pie Day!

Wednesday, Jan, 23 2013

That's right....it's National Pie Day today!

Oh the irony of National Pie Day falling on a "Weigh-In Wednesday" on the PhilCast.

But it's no contest-pie wins with me. I've gotta celebrate pie day with some pie from somewhere in Appleton today. I'll try to have a pie delivered to the studio at 3:00.

Pie first, then we talk healthy eating on Weigh-In Wednesday. What could be more healthy than pie? I mean it's got fruit in it and everything.

Little Chute woman should get the maximum

Tuesday, Jan, 22 2013

STOP IT!

I have little to no sympathy for people who are foolish enough to text while driving.

A young woman from Little Chute's life will never be the same.

A cyclist is dead.

I hope that was a real important message she was reading when she hit and killed him this past summer.

Now she's facing what could be a maximum of 10 years in prison.
Like I said, I hope that text message was worth it.

As a cyclist who rides a road bike for a few thousand miles a season out there on the streets I know it can be a dangerous sport. But my life shouldn't be in the hands of someone who isn't paying attention to driving a few thousand pounds of steel down the road because he or she is more focused on some silly messaging going on at the time.

Stop it.

Stop it now.


More about this on the Tuesday PhilCast show.

Baby it's cold outside...

Monday, Jan, 21 2013

I'm no fan of this cold weather.

There should be a name for it that goes beyond cold when it's dangerous.

I can think of a few names to call it, but they are not fit for print here.

Furnaces, cars, pets, and of course those among us without a roof over their heads...all will be talked about to start the PhilCast Monday with a series of interviews with experts in each one of those areas.

It's a triple-header of days today too...Blue Monday, Inauguration Day, MLK Day. That, plus I have a story about some great customer service to share during "Howz Yer Weekend?" today...it involves a rather unique drink I found over the weekend...



I know it may sound odd at first blush, but this sparkling cucumber drink was really refreshing and quite good.
