TIME for spring!

TIME for spring!

Well…my body clock is a little messed up from the time change over the weekend.  I wonder how many actually FORGET to set them?   We jumped ahead and now there’s no “turning back” and it’s just about spring!  Big thing now is do we really need daylight saving?  Is it really an advantage?  Talks are…Read more »

POTHOLES!

POTHOLES!

DON’T blame the County Workers, etc.  To me, that’s a crazy as blaming the clerk at the gas station for the gas prices!!!  There are many factors involved in fixing these teeth chattering holes in the road.  This time of year the weather is a huge factor.  I won’t go in to the science of…Read more »

Vinyl making a comeback!

Vinyl making a comeback!

I think maybe I should just say….”It’s Back!”  I was at a big box store the other day and almost snapped my neck when I turned my cart down the isle with DVDs and spotted a shelf of ALBUMS!!!!  Yes…RECORDS!!!!  Classic Rock selections.  It’s back…and there was even a gentleman thumbing thru them.  Now…only problem? …Read more »

Ozzy…worth the wait

Ozzy…worth the wait

Well, it’s been 10 years since an Ozzy Osbourne release.  For some reason I don’t get too excited over a new release but the new Ozzy album “Ordinary Man” had me putting it on a thumb drive and listening (at a loud level) all the way home tonight on my 30 mile commute.  If you’ve…Read more »

When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

When will we hit “Double Nickels”?

I recently put up a poll on our Facebook page regarding when you think will be the first day this year we hit 55 degrees.  Some interesting guesses.  It SEEMS like maybe August 12th?  That may be when the snow is completely gone. Now it’s my turn.  I think we may sneak close in March…Read more »

It’s TAX Time

It’s TAX Time

OK…how do you plan your tax season?  I know a LOT of folks that wait till last minute.  Especially if they pay in.  I actually try to do mine right away.  If I have to pay in at least I know right away and I can prepare and pay it then toward the deadline.  I’d…Read more »

Half Time

Half Time

Half Time…just another excuse for people to debate something?  Nope…didn’t have any impact on my Sunday at home.  Nope…didn’t dwell on it.  Nope…didn’t even bet one dime on what the first song would be.  I DID watch it and it was sprinkled with lots of lights, dancing and glitter.  Hearing that people were offended because…Read more »

Ground Hog Update

Ground Hog Update

Yes…the “National” version of the little rodent says early spring!  The Wisconsin version says 6 more weeks!  All BULLcrap!  I’ll just trust whatever mother nature has up her sleeve and leave it at that.  A 49 percent success rate with the little rats do not impress me.  Now back to another winter day in Wisconsin. …Read more »

Ground Hog Day…DUMB!

Ground Hog Day…DUMB!

Ok…I get it..it’s a tradition.  But that’s about it.  Facts show that the famous “Phil” has only been correct 39 percent of the time over the years.  An AWFUL record for people that keep records.  Leading up to my contention that Ground Hog Day is just a dumb tradition that has no bearing on the…Read more »
