How many people are as frustrated as we are with trying to stay up to date with FB changes? We love using FB for marketing and the cost is ideal, but it feels like every week there is a new algorithm to consider when posting.
It’s time for the PGA Master’s!
Tom loves sports, almost all sports, Devon not so much.
Three years ago when Tom and I first started our radio show the Master’s was approaching and Tom started talking about some of the players and telling me about the game and what a big deal it is in sports and I shocked the s**t out of Tom when I started to give statistics about Tiger and when he first won and other players that were also competing. Tom was shocked because he made an assumption that because I don’t like to watch football, basketball, hockey, etc. that I wouldn’t know anything about golf. It was a fair assumption on his part but ever since then Tom likes to wager on PGA picks for the 4 big tournaments each year. Now it’s time for the 2015 Master’s picks…..
Have you ever had a song stuck in your head and it seems to run on a short loop? I think everyone has had this happen, sometimes you know how it got there, maybe it was the song on the radio when your alarm got off or it’s part of a conversation with a friend and then you’re both trying to remember exactly what the words are. The second is what happened to Tom and I recently. I cannot remember exactly what the conversation was but Tom thought he was thinking of Winnie the Pooh, though he wasn’t, but then he couldn’t remember the exact words to Winnie the Pooh so he looked them up. Now thanks to Tom I have Winnie the Pooh suck in my head!!! Continue reading
This week I had the privilege of listening and watching two young ladies perform with a violin and viola. I saw them during a sound check and was mesmerized than and knew I didn’t want to miss seeing them perform, the performance was even better than I thought it would be. I was mesmerized.

This little Logitech mouse looks so innocent but when I try to use it now it’s a frustrating device! I have no problems admitting I am not very good with technology but how tough is it supposed to be; you insert the USB into the computer, turn the mouse on and viola…..no go. For some reason I cannot get the curser to work with the mouse. For you smart people out there, yes, I put a new battery in it, then I disconnected the USB and turned the mouse off and tried to re-install but to no avail. I tried using the mouse on various surfaces too!! Continue reading
Tom and I used to meet Monday to Friday at about 5:15 am. When we first started our radio program years ago traffic was light, it was April and it felt like we were the only ones awake at that hour. We got to see the sunrise during the summer months and loved being a part of the new day. Winter was hard since it was cold and very dark, the sun came up after we were already on-air and our studio didn’t have any windows. Continue reading
January is the big month of setting new resolutions. Some people, like me, don’t make resolutions because you fail each and every year. Others have a more positive outlook and make resolutions even if they are not achievable. I see a lot of people on Facebook comment about the gym being overcrowded and then in March it’s back to the regular “gym rats”. It’s now February and I’m curious who makes New Year’s Resolutions and more importantly how many of you are still working on your resolution???
Handcuffed teen hailed a hero after he saved cops life http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2909358/Arrested-teen-helps-save-cop-s-life-officer-collapses-heart-attack-trying-book-jail.html @MailOnline
While this story talks about a defibrillator (AED) being used to save the police officer, there is no doubt that someone was also administering CPR while the AED was being retrieved.
Stories like this one have special meaning for our family because our youngest was saved by people who knew what to do when his heart stopped: they knew and applied CPR, and called 911. Our son is alive today because people took a little time out of their busy lives to learn CPR.
During our time at Childrens Hospital we were shocked to learn that sudden cardiac arrest is the leading killer in the US. We have since gotten involved with a number of heart organizations, including the American Heart Association (AHA), if you need information on setting up CPR training in your community or where to find information on CPR training, feel free to contact the AHA or leave us a note.
Devon and I just had a friendly discussion about whether you should or should not drink when going out with a pregnant friend. Obviously I don’t hang out with a lot of pregnant women, but Devon does, occasionally there will be one of the guys who isn’t drinking, so the question becomes do you drink if your friend isn’t drinking?
Maybe the difference in opinion is gender but we definitely disagree. Devon believes that solidarity with a pregnant friend precludes her from imbibing; I on the other hand do not think it matters.
As you head out this evening for happy hour or dinner with a friend who is not drinking, will you show solidarity? Or will you enjoy your favorite cocktail knowing they will understand?
A couple of days ago I posted about being ready for summer vacation. I talked about how my kids and I spend our summer at the pool, I try to enroll them in activities to keep busy and that no matter how hard I try summer will become boring with nothing to do. Continue reading
