Ok…I do have a little bit of a dragon hangover…I’m a Game Of Thrones fan…and if you are too you know that the end is underway…The first episode of the final season ran last night and no spoilers here, but it was a lot of setup to get ready for the final episodes. I found myself wishing I had a dragon who I could send to negotiate my tax bill for me today…

Today is the day you gotta have your income taxes filed. Did you know it’s also the anniversary of the Titanic sinking. Coincidence? Hmmmm… – Davy

April 10th, 2019

Generally I’m ok with the thousand or so flavors of things like oreo cookies,,,cereal…ice cream etc. but I think I’ve found where I draw the line.

Heinz is celebrating Easter with a  Cadbury Creme mayonnaise. Huh?  It’s just what it sounds like. A mix of mayo, mustard and crushed up Cadbury creme eggs.  Heinz is doing taste-tests in breweries throughout London and that’s a pretty good idea. I’m thinking this would only taste good after a few beers (…lots).

I don’t think I’m ever going to be ready to try a chocolate, mustard, mayo spread. Can’t do it… – Davy

April 8th, 2019

Somehow Mondays are a lot easier to face when the weather gets warmer…and here we are! Happy Spring!

I have to admit I don’t know how to not watch music awards shows. I Have to see what happens and I have to see who wins. If you saw last night’s ACM awards you already know this…but big Congrats to Keith Urban for a very much deserved win for Entertainer Of The Year! I loved seeing that. I also liked seeing Dan & Shay get some respect last night with three wins! Nice

I also thought some of the performances were great too. Hope you enjoyed the show… Davy

April 5th, 2019

Happy Friday!

Pretty soon the weather will turn much warmer and on the weekends I’ll be outside doing things so I’m thinking this could be movie weekend. It’s opening weekend for “Shazam”. A strange kind of superhero movie that looks really good! It may surprise everyone with a very big opening weekend. Also it’s the re-make of Pet Semetary. Hey… I read the original book by Stephen King… and I also saw the original movie. I think it’s among his scariest stuff. None for me thanks.

Have a great weekend! – Davy

April 3rd, 2019

It’s a very windy day… welcome to the winds of April (is that a thing?). Check out this new survey…It’s from a paper towel maker and it claims.. The average person spills something on themselves 100 times a year. And 25% of people have spilled a drink on their desk at work.

Wow…that’s like every three or four days. I would say I find that hard to believe except for the fact that I probably spill something on myself more like 365 times a year. In fact, people who know me well know that I wear lots of clothes that are very close to the color of coffee for a good reason… – Davy

April 2nd, 2019

I hope you survived April Fool’s day. The weather is getting warmer and I’m loving Spring time. It’s baseball time too and I’m watching plenty of that. Bryce Harper returns to DC tonight as a Phillie for the first time and that should be interesting. But I also love that the Orioles are off to a surprisingly good start. They’re expected to be pretty bad this season but they took 2 out of 3 from the Yankees. this weekend. The Oriole’s are probably going to win the World Series now. – Davy

March 20th, 2019It’s finally here! Spring! Yes today is the Spring Equinox and if you’re not a fan of Winter… then this is the day you’ve been waiting for. I’m loving the weather getting warmer. Now I just need to get some Spring cleaning underway.

Have you seen this on Twitter. The latest thing appears to be people are making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and then putting mustard on top! Not kidding! The truth is… that may taste good but I’ll never know… because I’m never trying it to find out! – Davy

March 14th, 2019

It ‘s almost the weekend and I’m already thinking a little celebrating is in order… Hey… It’s the last weekend of Winter!

Maybe I’ll order some of this for my celebrating… Grasshopper Beer. That’s right Grasshopper Beer.  It’s from the Benchtop Brewing Company, in Norfolk, Virginia. Get this… it’s called Chapilin Exchange. It contains grasshoppers , lime zest, and chipotle peppers. I hate to be the one to point it out… but everyone knows if you’re making Grasshopper Beer you should use LEMON zest… not LIME zest… wow… – Davy

March 13th, 2019

I’ve gotta admit this is one of my favorite times of the year. Lots to look forward to. I think it took me two days to adjust… but I love the extra hour of daylight. I’m trying to spend at least some of it outside!

Also it’s two weeks now until the start of baseball season. And no matter what the groundhog thinks… Spring really is just around the corner. One week from today… It’s Spring! – Davy

February 28th, 2019

It’s a good thing that February is the shortest month of the year. I’m more than happy to say goodbye to it. It’s just that much closer to Spring!

Check out this new survey… Someone asked 2,000 people to name the food they miss most when going on a diet. Chocolate was #1 on the list, then ice cream, pizza, potato chips, donuts, burgers, cake, bread and Chinese food. This worries me… mostly because I’m pretty sure that’s my menu for this weekend! – Davy

February 27th, 2019

Hey it’s Wednesday and if you have a normal work week you’re halfway to the weekend!

Check out this new survey… It says one in 5 U.S. workers say they are late to work at least once a week. Not only that, but one in 10 workers say they are late to their jobs at least twice a week! I was going to tell you more about this survey… but I’m running late today. – Davy

February 26th, 2019

While it’s the season for a break from football…. this is the time that discussions start about rule changes for the future. Some are good and some not so great.

Check this out… The NFL is considering adopting a new touchdown celebration rule. A team would be assessed a 15-yard penalty if any players leave the bench or sideline to celebrate in the end zone with their teammates. Lots of coaches don’t want players leaving the bench. The only team not concerned about this rule change would be the Washington Redskins…for obvious reasons. First you have to score a touchdown to leave the bench to celebrate. But maybe THIS will be the year? – Davy

February 11th, 2019

I hope you had a great weekend! Be careful today and tomorrow because we’re in the middle of another reminder that it’s still winter! (On the bright side… 27 days till daylight savings time… just another sign of spring right?)

The Grammy’s were last night and, as usual, it wasn’t great. I need to lower my expectations a bit I think. But I was glad to see Kacey Musgraves win big! Also I was very happy to see Dan & Shay win for Best Country performance by a duo or group for “Tequila!”

Don’t know about you but Snowy days and Mondays always… well… never mind. – Davy

February 7th, 2019

Happy weekend eve! You’re almost there!

I ran across this story and I had to share it with you because it’s…frightening…amusing…and most of all obvious! A new, just released, study shows a regular serving of fried chicken is associated with a higher risk of death. The study showed that those who ate fried chicken once or more per day had a 13% higher risk of death. I don’t think this comes as a surprise to anyone and I can’t imagine how much someone spent to do this study. But I think the most surprising finding in the study is that they found some people who eat fried chicken every single day and sometimes more than once!

On the bright side though… they also found that you can listen to Zac Brown sing “Chicken Fried” many times a day and still be healthy and happy! – Davy

February 6th, 2019

Today is National Frozen Yogurt Day! I think you know how to celebrate.

Ice cream is one of the great pleasures of life and maybe you heard me mention this on the air yesterday: there’s an ice cream shop in New York that’s offering an ice cream bouquet for Valentine’s Day. It’s 19 scoops of ice cream on a single cone. I’m not sure I could eat 19 scoops of ice cream… but I’m definitely willing to give it a try. Happy Wednesday! – Davy

February 5th, 2019

Welcome to Spring! At least for a couple of days.

Now that I’m emerging from my football food coma, it’s a good time to share this with you. More about food! It’s been bubbling under the news recently and check it out… A new survey asked people to name some of their strange snack food combos they like

And here are 10 that multiple people mentioned . . .

1. Cheese and potato chips.
2. Apples and cheese.
3. Meat and sour cream.
4. Ice cream and French fries.
5. Potato chips and ketchup.
6. Cream cheese and jelly.
7. Pizza and ketchup.
8. Popcorn and hot sauce.
9. Apple pie and cheddar cheese.
10. Peanut butter and pickles.

I’ve actually had 8 of these ten and I like them. No thanks on #7 and #10 but I’ll add one that I love. Peanut butter and spaghetti! Yep. Learned it from my dad and it’s a winner. Try it! – Davy

February 1st, 2019

Here we go it’s almost the big weekend and check this out…

According to the American Institute of Food Distribution, this Sunday is the second biggest food consumption day of the year behind Thanksgiving. It’s true in my house for sure. I’ve planned out the menu for Sunday and I think my guests are gonna love it!

Iceberg lettuce, no dressing
Tofu
Brussel Sprouts
Saltine crackers with chickpea topping
Scrambled egg whites
Liver Stew

What do you think? Wait… on second thought, I think I’ll have Pizza, Wings, and Beer! Go Rams! – Davy

January 30th, 2019

There’s a shocking new survey that’s out and it’s from the American Pie Council. It appears we like pie. In fact almost all of us do. The survey shows that 92% of Americans Enjoy eating pie! Me, definitely included.

The most popular pie…Apple. Then it’s pumpkin, pecan, sweet potato and chocolate. I’m more of a cherry pie fan myself but…here’s the shocking part. There IS an American Pie Council. Where do I find them and how do I join? I’m in…big time!!! – Davy

January 29th, 2019

The next three days will definitely be cold. But check this out… Yesterday in Grand Forks, North Dakota the wind chills were – 60! Green Bay was -47… parts of Minnesota were -54. Yeah, that’s cold! On the other hand, on the opposite side of the world in New Zealand there’s a heatwave happening… average daily temps are 96! Just goes to show you, no matter where we are in the world we can find something to complain about. Stay safe – Davy

January 28th, 2019

Happy Monday!

We’re heading for the big weekend and as we get ready for the game I’m seeing plenty of these kinds of stories… An unidentified fan of the Patriots paid $180, 685 for 8 tickets on the 50 yard line for the Super Bowl. I think if I’m going to pay that much money for a ticket, I better get to play in the game… and… I should get to decide who should win! (I’d pick the Rams by the way) – Davy

January 25th, 2019

Well this weekend is that all important sports weekend. The biggest of the year probably. That’s right, it’s the weekend of the Pro Bowl!!! That’s right… THE Pro Bowl!!! OK, so I’m kidding. I don’t think I know of anyone who much cares about the Pro Bowl (including the players playing in it) It’s the NFL’s All Star game and I’m not really sure why it’s played. Goal number one is…don’t get hurt! Seriously, a player getting hurt in a meaningless game would be a really bad thing. I just hope all the players take it for what it is…just a (fun?) game… In case you’re interested, it’s Sunday afternoon at 3 from Orlando Florida (Hey, I’m going to DisneyWorld) – Davy

January 24th, 2019

Well, it’s your first weekend of no football (except for the Pro Bowl, but that’s not real football) in a long while so I figure I’ll get some things done around the house because I sure won’t the weekend after that.

Last week, I mentioned to a friend that I really thought Tony Romo was doing a great job as an NFL analyst. I’m definitely not the only one with that thought. Right now he makes $4 million a year, but he will likely be making lots more than that next year. He has plenty of fans of his TV work and his ability to predict plays. I’m seriously not trying to start a football debate here but I have to say…I’ve seen some really good players become not good analysts on TV…but this is a case of an ok player becoming a really good TV analyst. When it comes to Tony Romo…I’m a fan, and I never thought I would say that! – Davy

January 23rd, 2019

We’ve been waiting ever since the Jetsons (at least) for this and now I think it might really happen. Yes, flying cars. Word is that within the next six or seven years there will be flying taxi’s. They will take off and land vertically (a technology the military has used for a long time). But the thing that makes me think it might really happen is that there are at least 19 different companies working on building flying cars. A few of the cars in progress were being shown at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas. You gotta believe at least one of them will make it happen, right?

But thinking ahead…would I be willing to pay for a taxi to fly me to work and back? Oh yes!!! No question about it!!! I hope they hurry up – Davy

January 22nd, 2019

Well the Oscar nominations came out this morning. The show will be televised on Sunday, February 24th. I’m not sure how much we care about the Oscars, but I will say this; I think it was a pretty good year for movies. In fact, this year I’ve seen more than half of the movies nominated for best picture and that’s unusual. It seems like most years I haven’t even heard of half of the best picture nominees.

I have my favorites and I certainly have a few specific people I’d like to see win, but it’s too soon to think about that. After all, I had a team or two that I wanted to see win their way to the Super Bowl too…and that didn’t go so well… More thoughts on the Oscars soon… – Davy

January 21st, 2019

Ok so my two cents on the weekend football is that it was two great games… and, oh yeah… I’m now a Rams fan… Sorry, just can’t root for New England.

Bigger than the weekend football though is we’ve made it to the last ten days of January and, yes, it is cold, but we made it through the weekend with a little less aggravation than we were expecting.

Three weeks to baseball spring training!!! – Davy
