When will they learn?

Monday, Apr, 11 2016

When are these people who work at Starbucks going to finally realize all they should write down on these cups is a name?

Customers have cameras in their phones and there's this thing called the internet where they post everything about their lives--including the idiots who write stuff like this on their coffee cups.

"Diabetes I come"

The man who purchased the drink wasn't too happy.
He has two sisters with diabetes.

He wrote that fact back on the cup along with the notation,
"Not funny."

That's one of the stories I may or may not have on Monday.

If not Monday, then Tuesday discussion for sure.

The Brewers and Cards are slated for a late-afternoon game Monday, IF it is not raining in St. Louis, which is in the forecast.

We'll see.

"The Creepy Guy"

Friday, Apr, 8 2016

I did a little experiment this morning for a story I will have to open the Friday PhilCast show.

I did a Google image search for the two words I typed into the search box: Creepy Guy

THIS GUY came up as the first photo.

Yup, creepy.

I'd agree.

But what is it that makes you think someone is creepy?

What are the most creepy professions?

And worst question of all....
Might YOU be the creepy guy at work and not even know it?

Why do I ask?

Because according to the survey in this story, most "Creepy Guys" at work don't have a clue that they are the creepy guy at work!

We'll discuss to open the show today.

Appleton Bike Shop joins PC Family!

Wednesday, Apr, 6 2016

I've been DYING to share the news that I've known about for several weeks now, as I began to get my road bikes in shape for another great riding season.

Please welcome to the PhilCast Family of advertisers my new friends at Appleton Bike Shop.

I'm very excited to be associated with Gwen and Joe at Appleton Bike Shop, now my exclusive stop for all things cycling.

What a fantastic shop.
And what great people!

Gwen and Joe are 4th generation at this stuff. This isn't just their business, this is family and passion for them.

I like that.

Heck, I've already entrusted my baby to Joe who has been wrenching on it in the shop. My Specialized Roubaix now rocks some brand new hardware...and does it ever ride nice.

Now she shifts smoother than a baby's bottom.

You'll be hearing me do some ads for the shop on the PhilCast, which will feature various bike and cycling specials that Appleton Bike Shop will be promoting for PhilCast Family members.

They're located in downtown Appleton at College and State, just around the corner from the Appleton Beer Factory.

Parking available right out front.

And they've got a good web site that is easy to use and also provides info on the community rides and cycling events that Gwen and Joe are very active with. Again, I like that. CLICK HERE to get to their site. Check it out. And even if you don't live in the Valley but listen via podcast or live stream somewhere else, go buy something at their site!

Like I always say, support those who support the show. That's how all this works.

Ticket Talk

Tuesday, Apr, 5 2016

We've all been there.

You're driving on the freeway, and yes you're a little over the speed limit, when you see the law enforcement vehicle parked in the median.


Then begins the nervous dance of rear-view mirror watching, hoping he stays put as you ease up on the speed.

If you get pulled over, that does not mean you'll automatically get a ticket however.

Some officers themselves have talked about what you can (and should not) do once you are pulled over to increase your chances of just a warning rather than a ticket.

We'll discuss and I'll have what they said for you on the Tuesday PhilCast show.
