Dan's cousin Glenda's little jellyfish, Alex. Pretty cool idea, eh?
Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, our local Beggar's Night activities take place Friday. Get more details HERE.
A lot of calls to the studios, email messages and Facebook chatter about the WBEX Clock seen on The History Channel's "American Pickers" that aired last night. You can see "Guitars, Guns and Gears" again this Friday night at 8pm on The History Channel. We have some feelers out to folks who may have been involved with the radio station during the era of the clock and are trying to get more background. If you know, please share! Click on the photo to see a photo gallery from the show.
And now... the video!
The invitation was extended to Flavor Flav to discuss his restraunt in Las Vegas, but unfortunately fell through. Vanessa Doyle tried to picture Dan in "Ramey Flav" get up. Thanks to Andy Burgoon and Chuck DeLong for making it happen.
Now on to vacation! Mike's back Monday and will fill in for Dan, who's back in time for the Ross County Fair.
Dan & Mike did too! So if you misssed the ESPYs last night on ESPN. However, you can see the winners HERE.
So, when you live in the hills of the Pike Lake State Park Region... how do you get home when there's road construction? You go around it, of course.
Dan says "You'll notice dirt and gravel road... but no guard rails. One day this week I was stopped by a deer, sideways garbage truck (picking up a dumpster) and a horse "free ranging it" along the roadway... all in the same trip!!! People in town always ask why I live out there... easy to answer when you sit on the back porch and just "listen" to the surroundings at night. No hustle & bustle... and now that Fredneck's opened up the road, I'm just 3 miles from a freshly baked pizza or sub! LOL"
Check out part of Dan's scenic ride home Thursday.
Thanks to Mike Smith for filling in for me while away last week. It's good to be back! (gotta say that to keep the bosses happy, right?)
I spent some time with some of the boys putting on a little thing called the Ben Hartsock Football camp on Saturday... so I guess it was a "working vacation".
The kids had a blast doing drills, gaining instruction from local football icons like Cavs coach Ron Hinton, Circleville's Keith Downing, Paint Valley's Pete Hollon and others. But they seemed to enjoy the autograph session at the end of the day and the kicking demonstration put on by OSU's Drew Basil and their camp host, Big Ben.
Thanks to OU's Wayne Horsley who's been a driving force behind Ben's camp all these years... and for not having me run through the gauntlet like the young kids. For once, I was happy to not be 8 years old again!
There's been alot of attention surrounding Monday's traffic stop of Reds reliever Aroldis Chapman by Grove City Police.
The "Cuban Missle" was pulled over for speeding, but that's when officers discovered he was driving under a suspended license.
