Happy Birthday, cha-ching

Thursday, Jan, 21 2016

You'll hear the Happy Birthday song played on the Thursday PhilCast, but it's not my birthday.

In fact, the reason for the song has nothing to do with any celebrity birthday either.

It's all about a story I have about the amount of money parents spend on birthday parties for their kids.

It's insane.

And the biggest reason parents do it according to this study?

To show off.

I don't even remember having any sort of big birthday party as a young Phil.

We'll discuss.

How'd you do in Week 2?

It's "Weigh-In Wednesday" on the PhilCast today and we open the show with our reports.

Please remember to email me how you did.


No change?
What happened and why?

Plan of attack for Week 3?

We'll discuss and have some foodie talk at the start of the show today.

Here is the dog that Joe at LU found near WHBY on Tuesday afternoon.

Good job getting the dog to come to now at Fox Valley Humane Assoc.

I hope we have a happy reunion soon.

Creepy or Cool?

Tuesday, Jan, 19 2016

I'll have a story on the Tuesday PhilCast about Amazon's plans to go forward with drones delivering packages of under five pounds to your door.

There are now some rather interesting details about how they plan to pull this off, and yes, it's for real and not a publicity stunt they say.

I see all kinds of problems with this, biggest of which will be people shooting these things out of the sky to see what prize they've won....a.k.a. your delivery that never gets to you!

Remember this guy?

Final Pack Yak of the season today on the PhilCast with Rich Ratay.

We'll be passing out some year-end grades for a portion of the team and also talking about what we feel is needed to make next season even better.

My thoughts on that?

Hint: ->

We'll have the final Larry Chia Pet of the season and the Pack Yak Packer of the Year award to hand out.

3:00 Monday.

What a season it was.
