Congrats…We’re getting old(er)

Congrats…We’re getting old(er)

So with so many of our Classic Rock stars passing away do you find yourself starting to think a little more about it than usual?  I remember years ago not even thinking about it.  Somehow it has a slight impact as of late.  With the passing of Eddie Money I actually deleted the Series DVR recordings of his new episodes of Real Money.  It just bummed me out too much to where I just don’t want to watch it.  Yes..when I was young I would shake my head when older folks would talk like this and then think to myself “I’m never going to be like that when I get older”.  Guess what?!  Then all those bands I grew up with ….FAREWELL, final tours?  That’s almost as bad as artists passing away!!!  Elton John, Ozzy, Skynyrd, Bob Seger, Deep Purple, Kiss and others that are saying “goodbye”.  It’s SO weird.  Anyway…now more than ever I guess we all need to NOT sweat the small stuff and enjoy as much as we can.  I’m finding out more and more that great memories are a wonderful thing!  I’m going to go take a shot of Metamucil now!

STOP TEXTING!

Ok…I recently took my annual trek to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for business.  In my travels there is a lot of dashboard time for sure.  It’s a long ride.  During that ride I couldn’t help but notice the people that pass me by while looking DOWN at their phones!!  Going 75 miles an hour and just…read more »

Brats and Cheese Curds

Brats and Cheese Curds

With this week having National Cheese Curd day in it I was wondering a few things.  First…National?  Do they celebrate cheese curds in other states like we do in Wisconsin?  Also, it seems another Wisconsin tradition, the bratwurst is expanding.  You hear more and more mention of those delicious tube steaks cropping up all over…read more »
