Thanks!

Wednesday, May, 29 2013

Just a quick update on our "Operation Broadcast Hope", last week's effort to raise money for tornado and fire victims.  During the 13 hours that Woodward Radio stations asked for donations at the many Community First locations in Northeast Wisconsin, we raised almost $5200 for the American Red Cross!  Thank you to all that donated!  It all goes to help make meals, replace some of what's destroyed, re-fill medications etc.

Thank you!

Tornadoes in Oklahoma

Tuesday, May, 21 2013

The vicious twister that hit Moore has left destruction and death unlike most that we witness. Some areas of town are almost unrecognizable.

My one close-up experience with a tornado was back in the 80's in Minneapolis.  A big twister was racing across the metro, and after chewing up our neighborhood, we caught a break as it lifted just a bit before touching back down and destroying parts of town. We could hear the monster roar that many equate with a freight train going over your head.  After it passed, we saw hundreds of trees down, numerous homes, businesses and apartments damaged, a city bus thrown into a building...but, we were alive.

Our prayers go out to those affected by this tragedy.

Vacation notes

Wednesday, May, 15 2013

A few thoughts from these past few days while on my vacation. And no, I won't show slides.

The beach and 80 degrees is a wonderful thing, especially when it's in the 40's back here. I did bring back some warm weather, though....

Paid 3.19 a gallon for gas where we were...saw 3.74 per gallon upon return.  Yuck!

There's a ton of construction going on in Milwaukee, too.  They enjoy orange barrels almost as much as we do.

Shucking oysters is not as easy as it appears!  Especially when the ones I was shucking were as big as your fist!  Good eating, though...with tabasco and a squeeze of lemon!

You can tan too much!  Saw a lady who would have given "Tan Mom" a run for her money.  Her skin was so dark and....leathery!

Winter Kill

Tuesday, Apr, 30 2013

While raking my yard these past few days, I noticed a considerable amount of winter kill. It was a tough winter, and there were a few times when part of my yard was exposed to the bitter cold and the elements.  I did see a nice bounce-back already after just one or two showers this week, so with some sun, rain and fertilizer, we should be in better shape.

Couldn't help but notice on Monday the weather chart that showed the start of this spring is one of the coldest on record, after one of the warmest last year.  Talk about being on polar ends of the scale!

Happy May Day coming up!

Draft coverage tonight!

Thursday, Apr, 25 2013

Catch draft coverage on WHBY tonight as the NFL's meat market begins!  It would be an extremely dangerous drinking game if you had ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and how many times he says " this guy has a tremendous upside"  or " he's got a big-time motor" or "can he bring his college game into the pros"?!   The one thing that is universal is that you just don't know how good these guys are going to be until you bring them in and let them start bangin' around!  Packers pick late in round one unless they trade up--we'll talk about it tomorrow on the show!
