"Side" DOES matter!

Thursday, Mar, 5 2015

Take a look.
What do you see?

A comfy bed or a battleground?

Turns out side matters.

I just read through a sleep study that is packed with info about the importance of which side of the bed we sleep on.

I never knew there was so much involved in picking left or right when it comes to getting a good night's sleep with your partner.

We'll discuss in the first hour of the PhilCast on Thursday.

Walk in the park

Wednesday, Mar, 4 2015

One of the stories I'll be talking about on the Wednesday PhilCast is the case of some parents in trouble in Maryland because they allowed their kids to walk home alone from a park.

The kids are 10 and 6 years old.

The park is a mile from their house.

Someone called the cops when they saw the kids walking alone.

You know the rest of the story...there was an investigation and now a 'file' on the parents.

Did they do something wrong?

Should they be in trouble for allowing their kids to walk 12 blocks away from their house where they were playing in a park?

Nanny State?

Not to sound like an old man, BUT, back in my day we walked like this all the time.
And I know times have changed from the 70's, but have they changed THAT much?

I certainly hope not.

Do you see it?

Tuesday, Mar, 3 2015

Do you see it?

Here is the portrait of Bill Clinton that the painter says includes his personal dig, a shadow of the Monica Lewinsky dress.

Supposedly, that's it on the fireplace.

First of all, I would have never seen it.
Second of all, even after learning about this story and looking for it, I don't see it.

Do you?

Maybe the more-important question; Do you see a black and blue dress or a gold and white dress?

We'll discuss as one of the stories on the Tuesday PhilCast.

The Prince of Darkness

Monday, Mar, 2 2015

When I talk to Erin Davisson today we'll have to chat about a TV we both watch, Fashion Police, and the shakeup that happened on the set end of last week.

Kelly Osborne, Ozzy's kid, quit the show in a riff with one of her co-hosts.

Ozzy entered the fray via his Twitter account over the weekend.

Now, the news to me here was that Ozzy was even on Twitter.

I love his Twitter self-description:

Ozzy Osborne

The Dress

Friday, Feb, 27 2015

Today it's what color is the dress?

Yesterday it was Llama Drama.

What will tomorrow bring on the Wild West that is the internet?

As I tweeted today, clearly the dress is "Green & Gold"
