Time to 'Weigh-In Wednesday"

Wednesday, Jan, 30 2013

Well, there she is...
The first new scale I've purchased in over 30 years!

Yup, I'm digital now for "Weigh-In-Wednesday's on the PhilCast.

Today will mark the first time I'm using it for my report on the show.

Please email me your report if you are playing along at home and we'll discuss at the start of the show today.

Related to the 'healthier eating' topic I also have a story about snacks for the Super Bowl game on Sunday evening.

And we'll also talk Dutch food today....I'll be needing someone who is Dutch to call me on the phone and play along as we talk about foods of the Dutch.

People in the news today include one of my favorite couples....

Say it ain't so.

Dario and Ashley are calling it quits. I've met them both at the race track when Dario drives an Indy car at the Milwaukee Mile.

Barbra, George and Roseanne are also part of my people in the news segment today on the PhilCast.

Neither rain nor sleet nor...

Tuesday, Jan, 29 2013

Some things seem to take a lot of time to change, even though it seems obvious that a change is inevitable.

Such is the case I think with 'snail mail', you know, that old-fashioned way of getting junk mail that was around long before email spam?

Today on the PhilCast one of my stories will be about changes in mail delivery.

New Zealand is currently considering cutting back from six days to only three days of mail delivery.

I myself can't figure out why we here in America haven't already at least cut Saturday delivery. I mean who needs to see bills on a weekend?

But only three days? Would that fly with you? We'll discuss this afternoon.

It's an umbrella that looks like a gun

Monday, Jan, 28 2013

Who came up with this brilliant idea?

Behold the "Gunbrella"

It's an umbrella that looks like an assault rifle when not raining.

The company making them in Canada is calling it quits after taking heat from authorities there. Seems officers were ready to shoot a guy with one of these at a bus stop.

Can't say I blame them. Duh.

That story plus I've got a couple of good nuggets from my weekend, including a brazen act at the mall that involved me calling for security immediately.

Anybody go see the "Around The Corner" premier in Neenah Sunday? If so I'd like to hear from you on the show today about how it went.


"Howz Yer Weekend?" leads things off today on the PhilCast.

Discovering Neenah

Friday, Jan, 25 2013

This Sunday afternoon in Neenah you'll get a chance to see a TV show before it goes on TV.

It's the premier of John McGivern's Neenah episode of his PBS show "Around The Corner".

John joins me in the studio this afternoon at 4:30 to talk about the episode and some of the things he himself discovered in Neenah.

The episode will air on PBS next month. It includes his visit to Waupaca as well.

John travels the state with camera crew in tow, discovering all sorts of hidden and not-so-hidden treasures of the communities that make Wisconsin special. We'll talk about that and tell you how you too can attend this Sunday's premier in Neenah.

Oh, and if you are into trivia be listening after the 4:00 news today because the 'Grand Master' of the Lawrence University Great Midwest Trivia Contest stops by to talk about the annual global competition that begins tonight and runs for 50 straight hours.
