Email options

On my other blog, Collective Wisdom I asked the question today, "Why do Spammers Spam?". Click here to read it.

The fact is that there is both more information out there and there is more junk too. Some folks are so fed up with the all the spam they get, they've considered giving up email. I was tired of my battle with spam and switched to G-mail last year instead of Yahoo mail. The difference has been substantial. Try it for yourself by clicking here. You can even keep your current email address and have it forwarded to a G-mail account, and have the extra layer of spam filtering.

Here's a video of how G-mail works (sort of):

A Hidden Page on the WWW

The group of radio stations I work for has a "master" home page where you can go and click on one of the three radio station logos and go to that stations website. Once you are at the website, you can also listen on your computer. (Turn up the speakers).

Click here and save it in your favorites or bookmarks, and you'll never be without a radio station to listen to!

Step back in Time

Quick, Take a Picture on 3/7/08

From our friends at Business Weekly:

The Allen County Public Library needs help documenting March 7.
Library staff will collect pictures taken in Allen County between midnight and 11:59 p.m. Friday for the "A Day in Allen County" project. They can be of anything residents feel is important - birthdays, weather, traffic jams or other things.

Officials want to see what residents think "makes Allen County a great place to be and what you want others to see," according to the library's call for entries.

Digital photos are preferred, but prints also are allowed. No negatives or slides will be accepted. Participants are asked to use the highest quality setting on digital cameras or submit 3- or 4-inch prints.

oops, forgot to add something yesterday

A Very Busy Wednesday Followed by a Busy Today and Busy Tomorrow and then VACATION!

Hey, I just wanna say, stop making excuses that there's nothing to do.

Last night I was was invited to a reception for Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream who was in town to give a talk at IPFW.

The talk was free and open to the public and filled with humor and truth. More on Jerry coming soon. (Like a You Tube I'm working on of an exclusive radio interview we did last week).

March has the final Pop Series concert of the Philharmonic featuring Patti Austin's tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, and there's plenty of activities to do besides moaning about our 43 inches of snow.

Of course, if you are really tired of the snow, just ignore it and start your warm weather activities now, like this lady did yesterday:

I knew him when he was just a kid...

It's great to see our kids and friends of our kids and kids of our friends do well. Here's an example:

Some things never end

Winter in Fort Wayne for one.
It was 50 when I left my home this morning and now it is rainy and the temp is dropping. 43 right now. Tomorrow's high is supposed to only be 34. And the street department is basically out of salt too!

Something else that seemed to never end was the television show M*A*S*H. It lasted twice as long as the war that it was about. Most of the actors are in their 70's now. Click here for a full update.


In 2 weeks I get to celebrate 7 years of marriage to Kathy, an Irish Lass that wanted to get married on St. Pattys day so she'd have good memories to go along with the memories of her parents, once they were both gone.

So, the picture was taken back in 2001, and the following joke, well I'm sure has been around for ages:

An Irishman walks into a bar in Dublin, orders three pints of Guinness and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more.

The bartender approaches and tells him, "You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it; it would taste better if you bought one at a time."

The Irishman replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in America, the other in Australia, and I'm here in Dublin. When we all left home, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days when we drank together. So I drinks one for each o' me brothers and one for me self."

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there. The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar, and always drinks the same way: He orders three pints and drinks them in turn.

One day, he comes in and orders two pints. All the other regulars take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says, "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your great loss."

The Irishman looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns in his eye and he laughs. "Oh, no, everybody's just fine," He explains, "It's just that me wife had us join that Baptist Church and I had to quit drinking. Hasn't affected me brothers a bit though."

Step back in time with your Funky self

If you have any idea what this picture is about, okay, it's an album cover from the 1970's then click here and you can hear the hit song from this site I stumbled across.

Frozen Grand Central Station

This is the type of thing I would expect my son Josh to do. But he's in Maine, I think?!?

How to win Any argument

Are you Fat?

I had a goal last year to lose a pound per week. Didn't do it. Good intentions. Stopped the weight gain, and lost a few pounds, but I should be 40 pounds less than when I started instead of 5. So let's start from scratch and with a plan that works.

First, take a look at your B.M.I. (CLICK HERE)

Then you can see what you should weigh. And don't use "Big Boned" as an excuse.

Then you can go to one of the posts that I wrote that lots of people have visited for tips.

I'm doing it this time, and you can too!

Don't hire these guys

In real life, I'm looking for sponsors for a lawn and garden radio show on WGL. I'm looking for professionals, not these guys: - Watch more free videos
