Weekend?

Sunday, Jul, 15 2012

Old cars.
Yeah, that was fun in Iola, Wisconsin over the weekend.

My favorite old car?

Not this one, but it was close.

I'll cover that on the Monday showgrum for sure.

Lets just say it was HOT out there on Friday.




Old boats.
Yeah, plenty to look at in King, Wisconsin at Clearwater Harbor.

Too rich for my blood but it's at least fun to look at on a hot afternoon.

Iced-cold beer and iced cream were purchased, but no boats for me here.



And speaking of sweet treats, no trip to Iola each summer is complete without a stop at the Crystal Cafe for not only the fantastic pie but an iced-cold milk from the tapper to wash it down.

I went with the banana cream while Mrs. Biggest went with some sort of fruit combo crumble ala mode.

I can tell you this much....she usually never finishes all her food, which gives me a shot at sampling some leftovers.

Not in this case.

"Howz Yer Weekend?" We'll talk weekends in the first hour of the Monday show.

Call in live 281-1150 or 1-866-887-1150 the Red Ox PhilPhone numbers....or if you can not call just post up on our PC Facebook page HERE.

On the road

Wednesday, Jul, 11 2012

Thursday and Friday of this week will feature an extra hour of the Clark Howard show before a shortened 'best-of' PhilCast hits the air. I'm on the road to visit the Iola Old Car Show once again, an annual ritual of summer for me.

I'll be filing a report or two from there for the Friday show. And I'll have brief Tour de France updates for you on both days as well.

Meantime, Associate Producer Peel will be running things as Reggie is also on the road in San Diego at the Comic Con extravaganza. He too may be filing a report of two for Peel to play on the show.

So even though we're not there, we kinda are...so listen and check out what we come up with from on the road.

Have a great weekend and we'll chat live next on Monday for full reports during our "Howz Yer Weekend?" segment.

Would YOU eat it?

Wednesday, Jul, 11 2012

The Wisconsin State Fair is less than a month away and now the list of new (and rather goofy in some cases) foods being offered this year is out. I'll go over the list today and ask the question, "Would YOU eat this stuff?"

Some of it....check that....MOST of it just seems to be an attempt at being ridiculous. But there are a few items that actually sound like I might be able to try them just for the heck of it.

Also on the Wednesday show we'll go to Iola, Wisconsin for a preview interview about this year's Iola Old Car Show which is getting underway now.

And in Brazil there are some prisoners doing something rather unique in an attempt to get out a little earlier for their efforts.

Army Strong

Tuesday, Jul, 10 2012

So the U.S. Army is pulling out of its long-time sponsorship in NASCAR. That's the story today, but it turned me on to something else related to this story.

Not only will you not see this car on the race track, but I learned that a couple of lawmakers have actually been fighting for a bill to ban the military from advertising in the sports world.

My question is why?

If the military already has money budgeted for marketing/recruiting then what difference does it make if it wants to advertise to the NASCAR crowd?

What am I missing here?

I've also got news about Russ Feingold and an Olympic update planned for today.

Oh, and I need someone who saw last night's episode of American Pickers to join me on the phone today because I have a question for you.

HowzYerWeekend?

Monday, Jul, 9 2012

We'll chat our weekends on the show today in the first hour as usual. Mine came close to a 10, but wasn't perfect for one main reason. There was a clear superstar to my weekend as well.
Hint: that superstar is in this picture...
And I took the plunge over  the    weekend too. I'll explain it all coming up today.

Bucca is opening today....again....after a fire at the new Italian eatery in Grand Chute. We'll chat about that as well.

And Jerry Seinfeld is going to debut a new project soon. I'm interested for a specific aspect of it.

The bulls are running again.

Talk this afternoon.....
