Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet

Happy Halloween! I'm taking both of my boys out trick or treating tonight. The kids have an exclusive contract with me, signed in blood (just kidding,) saying, I get a 10% cut of all the booty which must include at least one peanut butter cup per kid, 6 pieces of candy corn(no broken ones), and anything with the word chocolate in the ingredients. Lastly, any wierd sour candy is strictly forbitten.

I'm sure I'll have stories tomorrow... stay tuned!

Why does the time change again?

I know... it was created for the kids who had to pick the cotton in the summer time a long time ago. All kids do now is surf myspace and play xbox. Do we really need time changes anymore?

My kids wake up at the crack of dawn... and in Florida during daylight savings time, that's about 6:30am... now that we're back to standard time, it's 5:30am!! Ouch!

Get rid of time changes or at least move the eastern time zone over some.

Less sleep = Grumpy daddy :)

Got Bored... Went to Walmart

Last night, there was no way I was going to watch America's Next Top Model with my wife. So, I grabbed my 4-year-old son Trale and we went to Walmart!

First up, Halloween stuff. We tried on all the masks, he set off one of those automated skulls that talks... he jumped about three feet in the air and three feet back. I was rolling laughing... he got a giggle out of it too afterwards.

Next, all the toys! Trale is really into Power Rangers... I'm digging the hot wheels race tracks (like I did as a kid!) We probably played with the toys for 30 minutes! It was a blast.

Now I'm pooped from surfing Walmart... Good Night Now!

In the Spam Box Today

This is hilarious... My Mom sent this one to me this morning,

Dear Tech Support:
This summer I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 103, Football 5.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5, and Racing 3.6. I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please help!

Troubled User.. (KEEP READING)

Dear Troubled User:
This is a very common problem that men complain about.

Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING!!! It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0. It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed.

You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony-Child Support. I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation.

The best course of action is to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway.

Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance. Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0, Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2.

However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5. Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0 !

WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

Best of luck,
Tech Support

I'm a Manly Man!... sometimes...

Interesting topic this morning on Handsome and Hussey about Manly Men. It was about what men and women perceive what was manly. The listeners discussed some famous "manly men" like John Wayne, Lance Armstrong, George Strait...

Of course, my self-doubting self asks, "am I manly?" Let's add up the manly points: Like watching Gilmore Girls with my wife last night. I griped, when first dating Holli, about watching that show many years ago. Now, I kinda enjoy the fast ramblings of Lorelei Gilmore. Does that make me un-manly? [-1 point] I also watch Dirty Jobs, Mythbusters, National Geograpic Channel... is that manly, or just nerdy? [+1 point] I like Hunting and Fishing, and Hiking, does that help my chances for being manly? [+3 points] I like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain too....[-3 Points]

Total Manly points: 0

I admit it! Sometimes I have trouble being a manly man...a result of marriage, kids, maybe getting older... oh well, I give up!

I think I'll just settle for being semi-manly me. Enjoy!

Weekend de Mullet

I need one of those shirts that say "I Survived Mullet Festival!" What a weekend!

This was my third Mullet Festival in Niceville... and it was, I think, one of the biggest! There were so many people there! Every night was packed!

Friday, Mike and I headed up there to put up our banners. Did you notice? They were everywhere! The top of my head got sun burned and a Niceville Police Officer was looking at me funny when we put a banner right in front of his post. Mike will have to tell you that story. Blake Shelton rocked the show! I don't think anybody noticed when I was on stage, that Blake's mic stand stood taller than me!
I can't believe the number of people inside the festival on Saturday night. Lonestar was that evening's entertainment. Ran into these two girls that were huge country music and Country 105.5 fans, so much that they got jackets made just for the Mullet Festival. I brought them backstage to meet the band and they just flipped with joy! It's always great to see there are still some crazy wild country fans out there!

Well, I made it to Sunday's show, with just a little steam left. People were still suprised that Travis Tritt was there since he was added to the lineup late. He was on stage for two and a half hours! What a great show, one of the best I've ever seen. He played all of his music, some Cash, some Waylon... pretty awesome way to wrap up the show.

I ate lots of food, rode some rides, met lots of listeners... oh, and I didn't run anybody over this year with the van... that's good.

First Sara Drama... Now Urban Drama...

BREAKING NEWS: Keith Urban Back in Rehab

Keith Urban, who has been open about his past struggles with cocaine and alcohol, checked himself into an unidentified rehab facility last night (Thursday). New wife Nicole Kidman, who had been in Rome promoting a film, Fur, was by his side. In a statement released today (Friday), Keith says, "I deeply regret the hurt this has caused Nicole and the ones that love and support me. One can never let one's guard down on recovery and I'm afraid that I have. With the strength and unwavering support I am blessed to have from my wife, family and friends, I am determined and resolved to a positive outcome."

Keith once said of addiction, "I don't know that you ever beat it." This isn't his first trek into rehab -- he did a stint after his trio, The Ranch, disbanded in 1998. A bio on a fan site, [UrbanIntensity.com], quotes Keith as saying, "I started finding solace in unhealthy things as a way to just kind of deal with it, you know...What started out as a recreation became a little more evil...It got to the point where I was just physically a wreck and it was time to do something." After a stint in rehab, he emerged, he later said, with a renewed love for making music.

Although Keith's new C-D, Love, Pain and the Whole Crazy Thing, is still set to arrive in stores November 7th, his appearances to promote it have been postponed.

This is soooo cool...if you're a big nerd like me

I stumbled upon something yesterday while surfing around Woot! They had a GPS device on there for sale. Typically, I wouldn't care much about GPS, but I saw a site called geocaching.com in the forum discussion.

Turns out, geocaching is a fairly popular activity. I call it "glorified treasure hunting." You need a GPS to play. Other enthusiasts hide "caches" everywhere around the world. They give you the coordinates and you go find it! It will have a log book in there to document your presence and you take an item out of the box and replace it with an item of yours.

I think treasure hunting is so much fun... and surprisingly there are tons of caches here in the Emerald Coast area. There is one at the cemetary in Ft. Walton Beach, the Mary Esther nature trail, and tons more, the searching never ends!

So as soon as my wife will let me buy one, I'll see you on the trail...

Onions and Paparazzi

Last night, I picked up the family and went to the Circus and had a great time! As we were heading home, my wife, Holli, asks the proverbial question asked every night... "Whatcha wanna eat for dinner?" I didn't want any fast food... french fries were not calling my name. Holli said we had some hot dogs at home... sounded ok to me. She wanted an onion for the hot dogs. We stopped by the store, got home and shredded up the onions on our wonderful fast feast. They were so hot, you could mistake them for jalapenos! I woke up this morning, still smelling like onions. Ever have that person at work come to talk to you and they still smell like the Italian food they had last night? A shower and Listerine couldn't take care of the onions on me. Thank goodness you can't smell through the radio.

In my previous post about the Keith Anderson Show, I made comment about the older ladies hitting on me... I think I was set up here, the paparazzi showed up and snapped this picture of one of the "alleged" ladies...

Sara Evans Shocker!!

Shocker!: Sara Evans is getting a divorce! The mini version is that her husband is accused of cheating, trying to cheat, and being a drunkard. Sara also has a restraining order against him.

Sara is leaving Dancing With The Stars to spend time with her family and children. She was about to get booted anyway I think, but it's still a bummer for her and fans.

Here's the story, in detail, from my news pages
Sara Evans has filed for divorce from her husband, Craig Schelske, and has withdrawn from the A-B-C show Dancing With the Stars. A statement issued last night (Thursday) by her label said, "Recent events that shed light on the status of her marriage prompted Evans to make the filing, which was registered today (Thursday) with a court in Tennessee, where Evans resides. Evans felt it was in her children's best interest that she also withdraw from competition on Dancing With the Stars to give her family her full attention at this difficult time." Evans and Schelske, a one-time Congressional candidate, have been married for 13 years and have three children. The news is sure to come as a shock to both fans of Sara and the show -- Craig Schelske was spotted in the show's audience Tuesday. Producers have indicated they will not be adding an additional contestant to take her place.

When Sara Evans filed for divorce Thursday, she also took out a temporary restraining order against her husband of 13 years, Craig Schelske. Sara accuses Craig of adultery, inappropriate marital conduct (which includes taking pornographic photographs and placing personal ads soliciting sex partners), verbal and emotional abuse and excessive alcohol consumption. In her divorce action, Sara is seeking permanent custody of their three children, the couple's home in Franklin, Tennessee, child support and the division of property. Sara met Schelske, a musician from Oregon, after she moved to Nashville in 1991. They moved to Oregon in 1992 and married in 1993. They returned to Nashville in 1995, after which Sara signed to R-C-A Records. In 2002, Schelske, a Republican, ran an unsuccessful campaign for Congress.

Watch Out For The Penguins!

My 4-year-old Trale and I had a guys night yesterday and we went to the movies to see "Open Season." Great movie, I enjoyed it! Another movie where animals talk :)

Something very disturbing during the previews though... Two previews back-to-back, featuring two new animated movies with Penguins!! Penguins with different talents.

In one movie, "Happy Feet," the Penguin can sing and tries to become the Penguin Idol, I guess. In the other movie, "Surf's Up," the Penguin knows how to surf!

Kind of reminds me when "Madagascar" came out, then "The Wild" followed, and it was almost the same movie and it bombed!

I think the movies studios may be going overboard with the animated flicks. Pixar has done the best job of doing animations... they at least mix it up some and animate different things... Toys, Fish, People, Cars.

Trale and I had a great time at "Open Season." Everytime I'd reach to get some of his popcorn, he'd get on to me for stealing his popcorn. Haha! Trale's the coolest.

Some things I'm thankful for today...

**The shower head in the new house works good.

**My wife has decided that her health is important and started using the tredmill this morning. Way to go Bean!

**I'm going to see "Open Season" with my 4 year old Trale at the movies tonight.

**my co-workers always jump in to help me when I need it most :)

**I ate some of my favorite leftovers today for lunch.

I'm brain dead today...

Don't know what it is, but things just aren't clicking upstairs today. I try to use my brain, but it just ain't cooperating. I would like to talk on the radio without babbling on like a boob, but no luck today. No smart a$$ comments now...

Things are starting to settle down some... got to stay in our new place last night for the first time... one thing I notice at night there are the bombings coming from the base test missions. They are pretty loud... louder than when I lived in Navarre. It's kinda comforting in a way though. Just hope they don't miss one night. :)

Got the tv hooked up last night too... glorius glow of the TV... ;;;drooling.

Keith Anderson Concert Commentary

In my humble opinion, nothing gets the funk outta ya like rocking out at a country show. Keith Anderson certainly rocked the house at The Block last night!

Some pretty cool moments, when Ricky Lee Phelps from Kentucky Headhunters jumped on stage and smoked "Dumas Walker."

It's really cool for radio people, just as it is for the artist, to hear the crowd singing the songs. The crowd joined in to sing Keith's hit song "Everytime I Hear Your Name" It's gratifing for me because they mostly learned that song from our station.... It's like, "we helped do that!"

I hit a new record last night too... Six old ladies hit on me!

See ya at the next show...

Unpacked... yay!!

I'm a baaaadddd blogger.... Has it really been since September since my last post?

Anyway, on with the show...

I'm done moving!! 'bout time! Actually, it wasn't so bad. We were able to move directly into the new place this time... instead of storage, then a house, which is double the work. Doubling work for a lazy guy like me is no good.

Lost a few pounds in the move...it was mainly sweat. I can now bench press a kitchen table too.

Ouch!?, I just dropped a box of Baywatch rerun tapes on my foot...
