Labor Day Weekend

Friday, Aug, 31 2012

Labor Day Weekend.

So, "Chadoin' This Weekend?"
Got plans? Got an event to plug? Call us live in the 4:00 hour of the PhilCast or go to the show's Facebook fan page and post something about your plans. CLICK HERE to get there directly.

As for me...

Well, I've got some serious corn roasting to do on Saturday when we host a belated birthday party for me and my two brothers-in-law named Jim. We all have birthdays at about the same time, and ironically they happen at about the same time each year.

I grill.

We eat.

We toss.

I set up a bucket in a fire pit area and when each person is finished with their corn we do a corn toss to see who can hurl their empty husk into the bucket.

It's sort of NBA meets down on the farm.

I can toss a good corn, but it's been a long time since I've won the family title at the annual toss. I'd write more about it all, but I've gotta go out to the backyard and practice my tossing now.

Happy Labor Day Weekend.

The PhilCast returns with this season's debut of Pack Yak on Tuesday.

Packer Time, lets YAK

Thursday, Aug, 30 2012



A lot has happened since the end of the last Packers' season, including the fact that "Pack Yak" co-host Rich Ratay went all A.J. Hawk on us in the off season!

The Yak is back!
Year three of the PhilCast Pack Yak kicks off on Tuesday of next week as we preview the team and the season on the opening edition of the show.

Then each week (usually on Monday's following the games) we'll yak about the Pack for the first hour of the show, including YOUR calls, emails and Facebook posts about the game. This is a two-way interactive street, so get involved and yak along with us as we go through the ups and downs of our beloved Packers' season on the road to the Super Bowl. SUPER BOWL.

New this year I'm adding a segment of Pack Yak called "Pack-a-PEEL". Associate PhilCast producer Peel will be covering the team for us and sharing some stories and audio from the locker room the day after game day.


And once again this year we are proud to announce that Insta Print Plus of Appleton is the sponsor of Pack Yak for the second year in a row. Welcome back!

GO PACK GO

For the birds

Wednesday, Aug, 29 2012

Many of us have bird feeders in our yards.
I know we enjoy watching our fine feathered friends stop over for a bite to eat.
You'd think having a bird feeder in your own yard would never be an issue big enough to end up in the legal system. You'd be wrong about that.

Today on the PhilCast one of the stories I have to discuss with you is about a woman who is being taken to court because she likes to feed the birds.

Neighbors say too many birds are making too much mess in their yards.

They say the seed droppings are attracting rats too.

They want her to stop.

Sounds a little crazy to me, but who is going to win in this case. I'll have the details.

Also Wednesday....

Appleton's cycling history...there's a book coming out and an actual tour you can take next week.
The head of that tour joins me on the show at 4:30-ish today to chat more about it all.

Dr. Phil ripped off

Tuesday, Aug, 28 2012

Well, there it is....in better times.

Dr. Phil's sweet '57 Chevy was ripped off.

I'll discuss on the show Tuesday afternoon.

Nice car.

He's got a great house in Beverly Hills too. I remember it was one of my favorites as I was being taken around Hollywood on a personal tour being given by my sister in law who lives out there.

I never did see this car.
There was a black Range Rover in the driveway that day.

Who's more informed?

Monday, Aug, 27 2012

I still get THESE things daily....and I LIKE them!

Newspapers may be a dying breed but I for one hope they stick around.

"Mrs. Biggest Name" made a comment to me this morning that I thought would make for an interesting conversation with you on the PhilCast today.

I was complaining about how the Journal/Sentinel has once again made the paper smaller (but not my bill) while touting availability of on-line information they provide.

As we talked about the fact that both of us still like to read an actual paper she said the following:
"Don't tell me people who only get their news from the internet are as informed as people who read a newspaper."

Agree? Disagree?

I hope to take some calls on this and have a discussion about it on the show in the 4:00 today. Of course we'll kick it off with "Howz Yer Weekend?" when you can call in and talk about your weekend...OR...if you can't call go ahead and post up at the PhilCast Facebook fan page.
