#12 is #1

Monday, Jun, 9 2014

Only in Wisconsin...

While on a great 45-mile bike in wonderful weather Sunday I had to take a quick stop to snap this picture.

Pretty much says it all.

The ride was my longest of the season, helped along in part by the fact that I got lost....again.

It's all part of the regular feature on the PhilCast each Monday I call "Howz Yer Weekend?".

Also today....
What's the owner of California Chrome cryin' about?

And Miss USA was held last night...Miss Wisconsin did well.

Friday, Jun, 6 2014

A record four women will be on the Friday PhilCast with me....

In order of appearances:




First up at 3:30-ish it's my daily chat with Erin Davvison of Local 5.

You never what we'll be talking about before Erin gives you a preview of the news on Local 5....but we always have fun.







Next up after Erin will be "The Buzzer" in the studio with me....

Maureen Wallenfang of the Post-Crecsent visits to chat about her readers' picks for best places to eat outside in our area.

Feel free to call in with your suggestions.



At 4:30-ish Mary Hirvela of the Fox Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau joins me in the studio to talk weekend events as part of the award-winning segment I call, "Chadoin' This Weekend?"


Feel free to post-up info about your events at our PhilCast Facebook fan page I'll read those as part of the segment.

My weekend will include such exciting things as sanding my garage as I prep for stain eventually.

Oh joy.

And after Mary, Pippa visits....

She has a ReciPIPPA the Week with a rather exotic-sounding name today.
So there you have it...
The ladies of the PhilCast on Friday.

Blonde jokes

Thursday, Jun, 5 2014

By request....

A listener named Diane (don't know if she is blonde or not) sent in an email to the show saying she really enjoyed my reading of some dumb blonde jokes the other day. She wanted to know if I could post them on my blog.

Ask, and (sometimes) your receive.

--Why do blondes take the pill?
A: So they know what day of the week it is.

--A redhead tells her blonde step-sister, "I slept with a Brazilian...."
The blonde replies, "Oh my God! You slut! How many is a brazilian?"

--Why do blondes wear their hair up?
A: To catch everything that goes over their heads.

--What does a blonde and a beer bottle have in common?
A: They're both empty from the neck up.

--What does a blonde do when her laptop computer freezes?
A: She sticks it in the microwave!

--What do you call 10 blondes standing ear to ear?
A: A wind tunnel.

--How did the blonde try to kill the bird?
A: She threw it off a cliff.

--Why did the blonde stare at frozen orange juice can for two hours?
A: Because it said 'concentrate'.

--Did you hear about the blonde who gave her cat a bath?
She still hasn't gotten all the hair off her tongue.

--How do you confuse a blonde?
A: Ask her to alphabetize a bag of M&Ms.

--What do you call a blonde holding a balloon?
A: Siamese twins

--Why do Blondes have TGIF written on their shoes?
A: Toes Go In First.

--Why do Blondes always smile during lightning storms?
A: They think their picture is being taken.

--How can you tell a blonde has used your computer?
A: There is white out on the screen.

--What do you call a blonde with half a brain?
A: Gifted!

--What did the blonde do when she heard that 90% of accidents occur around the home?
A: She moved.

--How do you drown a blonde?
A: Tape a mirror to the bottom of a pool.

--Why don't blondes call 911 in an emergency?
A: They can't remember the number.

--How did the blonde break her leg raking leaves?
A: She fell out of the tree.

A blonde and a brunette were jumping off a building. Who jumped first? The brunette. The blonde had to ask for directions.

Mr. Doty Island wanted what?

Wednesday, Jun, 4 2014


So this is the guy who has an island named after him in Neenah.

Meet James Doty.

I bring him up on the show today because as it turns out he wanted our beloved state of Wisconsin to be spelled very differently than it is now.

And I bring THAT up because of a new segment on the PhilCast that will open the Wednesday show.

It's something called, "The Name Game", when I give you a list of my wife's latest pet peeve; Goofy spellings of names or just goofy names outright.

See the how it all goes together with Doty here now?
He had some bizarre French spelling of Wisconsin that he was obsessed with.

We'll discuss.

Craigslist vs. Rummage Sale

Tuesday, Jun, 3 2014

It's rummage sale time of year.
Do you like rummaging?
Will you hold a sale this season?

Bigger question; Is Craigslist cutting into the popularity of rummage sales?

I have a story today about the most popular 'stuff' we all have in our garages and basements that ends up in the rummage sales we see.

We'll discuss on the Tuesday PhilCast.
