What's That Smell

If I'm going to smell like Busch Beer, I prefer the old fashion way...  Spilling it all over myself.

I know the soap probably has one drop of beer in it, but an odor that smells like the 'Nectar of the Gods' seems interesting.

For more soap details Click Here. (there are many brands)

This is what I think of when I see the soap... 

"There's No Soap That I'd Rather Be... Head for the mountains, the mountains of Busch.  Head for the Mountains of Busch...  Soap!"

Meet My Dogs

I have two puppers.  My Boy "Blue" is above.  He is a real lazy boy because he is an old man...

He enjoys short walks, pettin's and has never met a meal he doesn't like to eat.

This is Moola. 

Moolah

She is a little sweetheart that likes to be the center of attention, but scares easily.  

She likes chase, fetch and keeping watch.  She usually is hunkered down beside her brother Blue until she sees a squirrel or anything that moves.

They are both rescues and our house would be real empty without them underfoot...

Isn't that right Mr. Poopy Pants?

I don't know if his comedic timing would be as good as Leslie Nielsen's...

Could you see Liam Neeson as the next Frank Drebin?  He says he is done with action.

I mean how many times can a family member be Taken?  Click Here for more details.

I think they will re-cast the original Nordberg, don't you think?

A Day At The Park

Remember when we could congregate?  It was warm?  If there wasn't a concert I could attend, to the ballpark I went.

We are so lucky to live, where we do, with so many Major League and Minor League Ballparks nearby.  

Sure we are all critics! But the Big League Ball Players of tomorrow are playing right in our backyards.  

When everything gets back to some kind of normal, I think we should cherish these ballparks more.  

Here is a list of Top Minor League Ballparks Click Here for the Rankings.

We are lucky enough to have a number of great ones on the list.

Mainly look at #45 and #97 but Ohio is represented well on the list...   PLAY BALL!!!

I can't wait to sit in the sun, grab an expensive beer, enjoy the smell of fresh cut grass and the crack of the bat!  Who is with me?

Lebron is Back?

Lebron is coming back to... Akron?  Well at least not right now.  Unless it is to visit family or the IPromise School.

I am sorry for the confusion.  You can catch him on the big screen or HBO Max in July!

Yeah, he and his cartoon friends are going Looney for Space Jam 2.

Lebron's Taking His Talents Elsewhere

Lebron is off Coke...  Coca-Cola, that is...

After 17+ years of pitching one soft drink...  The former Cav and now Laker has decided to take his talents elsewhere.

To PepsiCo.  He is in line to push Mt. Dew in the near future.  Pepsi has been the NBA's Official Sponsor since 2015.  

It only makes sense that the best player, on the Planet or at least one of them, would be pushing the same brands.

My Food Is Watching Me

I don't know how your resolution is going.  Mine is backwards... My food is watching me, instead of me watching my food.

By the numbers most people's resolution lasts 36 days. 

In my head, that means, around The Big Game or Valentine's Day everything falls apart.

So next year, I may not make my resolution until then...  Then I won't look so bad to my food. 

Let's not talk about the drinks either....

Picture This

My son doodles during homeschooling.  If he is getting the work done, who am I to curb his creativity?

After a few days, I always make sure he didn't forget to turn something in to his teacher. 

I looked and found this gem the other day. 

Note: He has never seen the movie!

I approached him with picture in hand.  I said, "Buddy is...." he stopped me dead.

He replied "Isn't it funny it's RAINBOW instead of Rambo..."  and just belly laughed.

If you were wondering, where I get it from.

2021

As you are probably well aware we have missed a lot of great events.

Yeah, we're all pretty sad about that here at WQMX.

Dr. Fauci said the other day that "concert venues and theaters could open Fall 2021."

We are all looking for little victories, that light at the end of the tunnel...

To stand up like Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carey) in Dumb and Dumber... "So you're telling me there's a chance."

St. Patricks Day doesn't look like that light or chance.   Akron's St. Patrick's Parade was canceled.  There was talk of a half way parade in September.  Which may be better weather.  

This week we did get some good news.  Akron is moving forward with their in-person race and Marathon Schedules.  

Click Here to find out more on Akron's Marathon.

Here's to hoping every pebble shifts and moves so we can get more light at the end of the tunnel...  Stay safe.
