Status Symbols

Tuesday, Apr, 22 2014

One of the stories I'll be talking about on the Tuesday show is one that compares what we consider today's status symbols, and what they were back in the 80's.

It's a pretty eye-opening list.
Why?

Things we thought were soooo cool in the 80's...things only 'fancy people' had back then are mostly things we all take for granted here in 2014.

Hint:

And in fact, what's really interesting to me is the fact that of the two lists, only ONE ITEM shows up on both as being a status symbol in the 80's and still now as well.

We'll discuss.

Oh, it's Earth Day....
Hug a tree or something I guess.

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.
