What are three things that are, or soon will be extinct.
First phone booths, then the phone book, and now land lines. Wisconsin and Indiana are the two latest states that no longer require phone companies to provide everyone land line service and a handful of other states are considering it.
Supporters say it’s for the better because it’ll allow more investments in better technology rather and increase competition. Some worry that rural areas that don’t get the best cell phone coverage will be socked with higher costs.
That news made me think. First about how people will always need a mattress to sleep on, so at least I'll always have a job.
Second, about phone booths. When is the last time you saw a phone booth. When's the last time you actually used a phone booth? What if Superman were to show up today? Where would he change?
I guess he would have to duck into a Starbucks or a cell phone retail store. Those are everywhere!
Have you heard the song "Rumble and Sway" yet on Triple M?
The singer sounds like a raspy blues dude who's definitely been around the block a few times....but surprisingly, Jamie N. Commons is only 23 years old!
He was born in England, but...
Last week, I decided I would try one new, healthy food a week, and asked my facebook friends to make some suggestions.
The first thing I tried was mango. I'm sure I've had other mango flavored things, and mango as part of something else, but...
There's only one thing that might be worse than the Neil Diamond/Barbra Streisand duet "You Don't Bring Me Flowers." And that's Jonathan Suttin doing his best crooning...doing both parts. Most unpleasant.

Last weeks challenge we thought went excellent! Of course we are a little biased.
The drinking song couldn't have been any better, or any less fun. We had a blast through out the whole process, and our performance rocked.
This week is an easy...
So the story goes Michael Jackson completed this song while watching cartoons with Paul McCartney. We'll just let that sink in for a moment.
Not sure what cartoons they were watching, but it must have worked because this song made it to number 2...
The Dalai Lama is back in town, sharing his message of peace and kindness with likeminded individuals, and the Wisconsin legislature. He also held a private meeting with Gov. Walker, who said he mostly listened to what His Holiness had to say (wise...
This duet by Ol' Blue Eyes and his daughter went all the way to number 1 back in 1967. It seems a little creepy that Frank and Nancy Sinatra are singing a love song. However, a lot of Triple M listeners were in the mood for it.
