Time for Miss Wisconsin

Friday, Jun, 21 2013

Saturday night we'll crown a new Miss Wisconsin, who will compete for Miss America this fall.

So, being somewhat of a pageant junkie, today on the PhilCast I'll have two contestants on live from Oshkosh to talk about the proceedings thus far this week.

Joining me will be two of the women who won a local pageant I was a judge for back in March.

That's Miss Fond du Lac on the left, Marissa Wier and on the right is Michelle Victoria Neumann, Miss Wisconsin Central.

Listen in right after the 3:30 news.

And right after the 4:30 news find out what's going on in the Valley when we do "Chadoin' This Weekend?" on the show.

Roses are more than red my love

Thursday, Jun, 20 2013

Hosting a talk radio show like the PhilCast, based on a local guy talking about local and everyday 'stuff', gives me the opportunity to forge some wonderful partnerships with local businesses. In just over a year on the air we've made all kinds of friends with local advertisers.

We don't just 'air commercials' on the show, we chat with the people who run those businesses and learn all kinds of stuff about them and their products and services. And you know what I always tell listeners....you need to support those who support us....that's how this all works.

Yesterday on the show while talking to Joe at Van Zeeland's Nursery he was telling me about some beautiful roses in bloom there. These are some of the pictures he sent me.

Like I said during our chat, roses nowadays are so much more hearty than they used to be.

And the colors....

Wow.

More pictures....














This one has got to be one of my favorites.

I can hardly wait to get moved in and settled in next month.

Once the inside of the new house is unpacked it'll be time to start on some plants and landscaping outside.

And I know my friends Joe and Steve at Van Zeeland's will be getting a call. Because like I said, we need to support those who support the show.

One more thing today....
During the "Famous Dave's The Last" segment yesterday, caller Mike talked about the fairy garden he was doing with his kid. Fairy garden? Well, of course after I stopped giggling like a little girl over the name, he explained what it was to me. Mike also sent me a picture of it....

Fired for the wrong reason

Wednesday, Jun, 19 2013

Melanie shaved her head in support of her sister who is fighting cancer and lost her hair to treatments.

Melanie is now without a job because of it.

She works at a hair salon as a stylist and her employer told her a stylist with a bald head frightens customers away.

They told her to wear a wig.

Melanie said what's the point of showing support for my sister if I'm wearing a wig?
They fired her.

We'll discuss as part of the Wednesday PhilCast.

Skimpy top on a young girl; not your place TSA

Tuesday, Jun, 18 2013

Another TSA investigation has been opened,
This time it involves an agent at LAX who told a 15-year-old girl to 'cover herself up.'

Here is a photo her dad took before writing about the incident on his blog.

I was expecting much worse before I saw this picture after only reading about the story.

Then I saw this photo and said to myself, "That's it? This is what all the fuss is about?"

What am I missing here?

Seems by today's standards that's a pretty tame outfit for a 15 year old.

And my point here is that, as a parent, whether or not you think this is appropriate attire for your kid is up to YOU, not the TSA. Agent was out of line IMHO.

Miss Wisconsin this week

Monday, Jun, 17 2013

In addition to "HowzYer Weekend?" on the Monday PhilCast, I have some beauty pageant news today.

First of all, we had a great clunker of an answer to a question from Miss Utah during last night's Miss USA contest. I'll play that audio and of course that gives me an opportunity to once again enjoy a blast from the past, Miss South Carolina and her answer all about 'education and such."

Then there's Miss Iowa making news for another pageant first at Miss America when it rolls around this fall. She'll be the first contestant to compete without two full arms.

And Miss Wisconsin is underway in Oshkosh this week.
The finals are Saturday.
Here they are!

Remember I was one of the judges back in early spring when they crowned Miss Fond du Lac.

We'll try to have her or one of the other contestants on the PhilCast later this week.
