I'll miss Miss America

Thursday, May, 9 2013

You know I loves me my beauty pageants. Watching the Miss America pageant has been a tradition in our house for years.

Miss America is all about tradition, including that song right after she is crowned....

..."There she is....Miss America..."

Nope. Not this year. Come September there will be no Miss America song sung. In its place, well, they don't know yet. All they know is that lawyers have gotten involved. You see there's a licensing issue and federal lawsuit involving the original writer's widow.

So legal issues will take away a tradition dating back to Bert Parks. It's a shame. Maybe they'll replace the song with a new and fresh hip-hop version. I can't wait to hear it. NOT.

The spider thing

Wednesday, May, 8 2013

It's a spider.
The governor of New Jersey squished it in front of some school kids touring his office.
Big deal.

PETA is trying to make it a big deal anyway....sort of....complaining now that the gov should have captured and released the spider to set an example for the kids.

I repeat: It's a spider.
That is all.

HowzYer Weekend?

Monday, May, 6 2013

As usual we ease into the PhilCast broadcast week with some weekend chat today during "HowzYer Weekend?"

Mine featured getting new glasses, cutting the grass for the first time this spring and an awesome 50-mile bike ride that took me past this giant cow at the former Golden Gurnsey plant.

Talk to you this afternoon.

Derby time

Friday, May, 3 2013

Derby time and if I'm right about this, a horse name 'Orb' is the favorite.

Me?

I'm not into horse racing.
I'm not into gambling.
I don't drink mint juleps.

But I DO have the info about the horses and one heck of an expensive mint julep to share with you on the Friday PhilCast.

Oh, and I guess it's not really the Kentucky Derby any more either.

I think it's the
'Grade I Kentucky Derby, Presented by Yum! Brands' that will be run Saturday.

I wonder how the Indy 500 has managed to remain just the Indy 500 at this point?!
