Highway or Freeway?

Tuesday, May, 15 2012

Will someone please tell me what all the fuss is about regarding the future of Highway 41?


All this week public meetings are being held to talk about the advantages of making the biggest route into our neck of the woods a freeway rather than a highway. 


Now aside from the cost of putting up those green and white signs telling travelers they're on a freeway (at a cost to taxpayers) what's the big diff? Why bother? Isn't HIGHWAY 41 already for the most part to the standards of what a freeway is anyway? 


Tomorrow there will be a meeting here in the Fox Valley about this and at some point this week we'll get someone on the PhilCast to talk about making the change. Whoever it is, maybe he or she can change my mind on this because right now I'm not feeling it.

Back in the saddle

Monday, May, 14 2012

Well it's back to the old routine today now that my week of being a beach bum has come to an end. 


Coming up on the Monday show I'll have a little vacation recap for you, including the funny story about the baby rabbits making progress in my front yard.



Tonight will be a special night for Johnny Carson fans, and I am certainly in that camp. Plus I'll have a story I think you'll be shaking your heads at and saying, "What's wrong with that cop?" when you hear it. Howz Yer Weekend too...share any stories from your Mother's Day weekend with us in the first hour by calling in live or posting them on the PhilCast Facebook fan page.

"Hippie Tom"

Friday, May, 4 2012

"Hippie Tom" from the TV show American Pickers joins me on the PhilCast Friday right after the 3:30 news.
Click Here to see his Facebook page.


I'm a HUGE fan of the show and when Frankie and Mike stop to rummage through a place in Wisconsin it's all the better. Such was the case last season when they dubbed this junk collector from Waterford, WI Hippie Tom.

Then in a later episode they bumped into Hippie Tom at Sturgis. Well, ever since the TV spot Hippie Tom has become somewhat of a celeb.

He has an amazing collection of collections....stuff....junk....treasures....call it what you will.

We'll chat about what it was like being a part of the popular show on the History Channel, and how his life has changed since being dubbed Hippie Tom.

My yard the zoo

Thursday, May, 3 2012

So upon arriving home Wednesday night our dog Gabby discovered a rather large hole in the front lawn. Seems she got a bit fired up by the smell of something in there. Sure enough, some baby something-or-others the size of a mouse were squirming around in there. They are obviously newborns about the size of a small mouse, so they can't be baby mice...too big already. I have a guess as to what they are though. I'll talk about it on the Thursday PhilCast show. And in addition to the mama mourning dove still sitting on the nest outside my back door there is a new winged player with another nest just a few feet away now. The animals theme continues on the show today because Neenah city fathers met to talk about new pet restrictions there and Appleton city fathers are putting together plans on what to do about raising chickens in the city.

The pictures from Wednesday's visit to Van Zeeland's Nursery are now posted at the PhilCast Photo Page
