The new Girl Scout cookies

Tuesday, Jan, 6 2015

Here they are, the three new varieties from the Girl Scouts this year.
I'll be discussing as part of the Tuesday PhilCast.







This is the Oatmeal Rah-Rah Raisin cookie, with Greek yogurt chunks in it.

Started out OK until I saw the word yogurt in the title.




This is the one with toffee bits inside.

I'll take toffee bits over yogurt chunks any day by the way.

It's called Toffee-tastic and it is also a gluten-free cookie, because it seems that's all the rage these days, whether you need to be gluten-less or not.





And this one is called Trios.

Peanut butter, chocolate chips and whole-grain oats....also gluten-free on this one.


Call me old school, but I'll stick with thin mints and a big glass of cold 2% milk.

Goldfish surgery

Monday, Jan, 5 2015

Yes, that's a goldfish being operated on.

It's one of the things I'll be talking about on the Monday PhilCast.

Poor thing couldn't poop...and some sap who owned it paid a bunch of money to make sure it lived.

Is a goldfish even really a pet?

We'll discuss.

Polar "Plunge"?

Friday, Jan, 2 2015

So here we go with the first PhilCast show of 2015....

And my first rant of the new year pertains to this tradition of something called a "Polar Plunge".

Here's my issue with this;
Who do you see plunging?

It's not called the "Polar Wade In And Splash Around Like A Sissy".

Call it a plunge and I better see wet heads! Where's the plunging? My kingdom for a plunger...sort of.

Kennedy Center Honors/Popcorn

Tuesday, Dec, 30 2014


Enjoy the look back at 2014 on the Tuesday PhilCast, which will be my final show of the year.

I'll be covering a lot of year-end stuff.

Then tonight, it's a Cianciola Family tradition, watching the Kennedy Center Honors while downing a giant bowl of REAL popcorn in front of the TV.

My favorite of the inductees this year is Al Green.

With Colbert hosting, this should be another banner year for the most-classy awards show on television each year.

Wait, if that's true, why is Colbert hosting?
