My big old bowl

Tuesday, Jul, 2 2013

As listeners know we have been packing up 21+ years of stuff over the past four weeks since selling our home in preparation for the move to the Fox Valley this month.

That's a lot of 'stuff' to go through.

Some things obviously make the trip to a cardboard box to come along.
But with other things it's not so obvious.

Sure, you have no reason other than sentiment to take something along that you haven't used let alone seen for the past eight years, and yet you can't just ditch it.

Case in point, this old bowl.

She ain't pretty, that's for sure.

She's very old. That's for sure.

We don't need to use it for anything. That's for sure.

Shouldn't it be 'for sure' that we ditch it? Why pack up and move something you don't need or use?

Memories. That's why.

I remember my childhood when I see this bowl. I can see my late grandfather and me watching the Green Bay Packers play while eating popcorn out of this bowl.

He didn't make just any popcorn mind you.
This was Sunday game day. This was special.
This was popcorn he made with bacon bits and bacon grease drizzled over the top.
He would always fill this bowl up a couple of times on game day.

There is no logical reason to tote this along to our new home.
But guess what?
I packed the bowl last night.
It's coming along.

Do you bank on a bank?

Monday, Jul, 1 2013

Welcome Monday, and a shortened week of PhilCasting to come as we count down to the 4th of July.

In addition to our usual stories from the weekend during "HowzYer Weekend" I'll have a story about companies using pay cards instead of actually paying people.

Problem is, people are being charged more than ever for access to their own money. Doesn't seem right.

And more and more people don't even have any sort of bank accounts at all these days.

Seems odd to me, but I'm old school.
I'll have the numbers and chat up the story this afternoon.

Right now, I have to head off to the bank to take care of some business!

Danergous time for your phone

Friday, Jun, 28 2013

Boy the goofy little facts you learn each and every day.

And kids, I am nothing if not a deliverer of such said facts day in and day out on the PhilCast radio show!

Like today...

I'll be doing a story about the most dangerous time of year for your cell phone. That's right....there IS one.

And Lord knows with the way we seem to have these things glued to our ears or thumbs, this should play out as an 'important' story to hear today on the show.

ReciPIPPA the Week and Chadoin' This Weekend in the 4:00 hour of the PC today also.

Watch as a gorilla in a zoo takes all kinds of taunting from some kids...then decides to let 'em have it.

Fantastic.
