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!

NFL schedule coming soon

Wednesday, Apr, 17 2013

Thursday night, the NFL finally releases the schedule for the 2013 season. We'll talk about it Friday morning on the show.  We know the home games will feature the NFC North teams, plus Washington, Philly, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Atlanta.  Away, its the North teams, plus the NY Giants, Dallas, Cincy, Baltimore and San Fran.
Care to guess on the Packers opener?  I'm going to say it will be RG3 trying to rehab his knee in time for a late Sunday afternoon game for the Redskins at Lambeau against the Pack!  We'll find out Thursday night!

Gun control measures

Tuesday, Apr, 9 2013

It looks like most of the gun control momentum that arose following the tragedy at Sandy Hook in Newtown has diminished greatly.  Though no one measure can prevent a repeat of that horrible day, making any strides towards keeping weapons out of the hands of dangerous people is at least a step in the right direction. The universal background check measure may pass, but outlawing assault-type weapons and limiting the size of clips looks certain to fail. Too bad. 

I have no issue with law-abiding citizens owning a weapon.  But, I fail to see the need for anyone outside of our military to possess an assault-style rifle that can shoot 20, 30 or more bullets from one magazine.

It's fairly clear that many legislators on the Hill have realized just how many campaign dollars they will lose if they support any further gun control.  Even as the majority of their constituents want this legislation to become law.  Too bad.
