Good Friday

Friday, Apr, 18 2014

I don't know what Jesus actually looks like, but I imagine him to look just like Robert Powell did in the classic movie, "Jesus of Nazareth".

His eyes, so piercing.
His voice, so comforting.

Yeah, this is how I hope Jesus looks and sounds when I meet him some day.

This movie moves me every year at Easter time. Watching it has been a tradition for me for decades. I kid that I want to become a priest after each time I see it.

And I quote from some of the lines to myself quietly throughout the season.

Someone put a clip together on YouTube....the music....especially the theme song of the movie that repeats throughout is so damn haunting.

Great stuff.

Happy Easter.

Bracket Madness Model

Wednesday, Apr, 16 2014

Um, who won again?
Who won bragging rights as the champ of this year's PhilCast Bracket Challenge?

As the song says, go ask Alice....because there she is...Alice modeling her champion's sweatshirt.

Congrats again Alice. Way to go. Enjoy that one-of-a-kind sweatshirt custom made in SuperFan Judy's sweatshop!

Today on the show we wrap up "Weigh-In Wednesday" with the final reports from listeners in this 14-week run together.

Then we give away the grand prize of a one-year membership to Lake Park Swim & Fitness. Thanks to them for sponsorship and a great prize donation this year. And thanks to Jane at LPSF for her weekly tips on keeping in shape and dropping pounds together.

CLICK HERE to check out LPSF on line.

Right after today's Brewers' game on WHBY we'll open the PhilCast with the final WW reports and two drawings, one for the membership and the other for two winners not from the area who will instead get more of SuperFan Judy's work.....a couple of PhilCast t-shirts will be on the line.

Tax "REFUND"? I don't think so...

Tuesday, Apr, 15 2014

Tax day is here and today on the PhilCast one of the things I'll talk about is how to avoid what, at first blush, may seem like a good thing; a nice big tax refund each spring.

It is actually NOT a good thing.

Remember, it was YOUR money to begin with, and there are better ways for you to put that money to work than lending the government a free cash loan.

Here is the overhaul link that I will talk about in my story today. If you would like to take a look at this IRS chart on refunds etc. CLICK HERE to see where you should be.

Remembering "Junior"

Sunday, Apr, 13 2014

A face from my past came back into my life suddenly on Sunday afternoon when I received an email from a distant relative. "Junior" had died last week.

If I look closely at his face I can see my grandma, who raised me in West Allis. If you read the obit of Fred Stoll (click here) you will see that he had a sister named Dorothy Trokan. That was my grandma.

Jr. lived 'up north' from me when I was a kid, but I remember several visits in West Allis when he and my grandma were always joking around. They both had a quick wit and a sense of humor, always at the ready with a bad pun or two.

So in a way I think that is where I must have inherited the sense of humor I have been able to use to make a living.

Maybe it all started here with "Junior" in my blood lines. I wonder if he and my grandma are up there somewhere now cracking jokes together again?
