The day was April 22nd,2005. My family and I were shopping at Best Buy. I went over to the car stereos and saw a new product,that would forever restore my sanity. that device was the new XM SkyFi II. It played in the portable boombox. Wow,I was impressed and I wanted it. My birthday was less than a month away,so,I asked my wife for an early present. Being a loving wife and knowing my needs,it was a gift she wanted me to have.

Let me back up and explain that “restore sanity” comment. I drive a delivery truck for Fed-Ex.(at the time of purchase,I was with DHL)I am putting anywhere of 6-9 hrs. a day in my truck. Its my  mobile workplace,if you will. I listen to R&R and talk shows on AM,Im also a Reds fan. The area I was in was very rural,alot of hills,trees and backroads. the radio would at times fade in and get static.

The Reds games were almost impossible to pick up even though they are on a 50,000 watt station. Fm stations were playing the same groups over and over and only using 2 maybe 3 songs off their whole playlists.How many times can a person hear Running Down A Dream by Tom Petty and not get headaches? Or,every night at 10pm you have to hear Mandatory Metallica for an hour,even though they play Metallica on the hour every hour! Enough was enough!

Enter XM. Now I had the MLB pkg. Access to multiple channels of Rock.Plus channels of talk shows for my listening pleasure.

Where else but satellite radio can you hear Small Paradise by Johnny Cougar,followed by J. Giles band  singing live House Party? FM would not dare be that creative. Thats why 20 million subscribers have done what Ive done. Pay for pure pleasure,and not be a slave to programmed corporate playlists with NO originality.

Thank You XM for my sanity!

A Brief History of Bugs Bunny.

This was always my favorite cartoon character. My friends and I would lift some of his smart-ass comments in school.

It was Bugs Bunny,so we didn’t get to much flack. i love Bugs because he’s a patriot like so many characters back in the 40’s were. I even have a coffee mug I bought for my Dad,displaying 40 yrs of Bugs.

Its on my computer desk,holding my pens and markers. I had alot of quality time watching him with my Dad. After we would both get home from work,we would grab our supper plates and go in the living room and watch Looney Tunes,and get a nice chuckle out of it.  Miss Ya Dad, so does Bugs.

Bikers Rally to Ride With Boy After School Banned American Flag | The Blaze.

What a great story. What is wrong with some people. You don’t want to offend other people? We are in America,for crying outloud! When did it become a distraction to fly OUR colors in public? Especially in school! If any one was/is offend by this,by all means…..LEAVE!

The PC crap in this country has reached its limit. PC took out the fun at school parties,dances and graduation services. PC went after retail for saying Merry Christmas in its marketing.

WHY? Just stop the insanity. You leftists are really brain dead. To pick on these topics and hundreds more,is just plain STUPID!

Its so refreshing to read about this success story and brother,I feel there are a lot of changes coming,and the PC crowd won’t like it.

I say too bad!

One Of The All-time Greatest Shows

Growing up who didnt watch M*A*S*H? My God that show was great. Now Im talking about the original cast,Henry,Frank,Trapper. After these 3 left, Well the show lost something. I still watched  but wasnt the same. I posted a video of one of the best characters on T.V. To be honest, I still get choked up watching the last episode with Col. Henry Blake.Enjoy!
