Aq-ward Man

Written by
Shark Week is Back...  I get the point Momoa is AquaMan.  He is hosting.  The commercial seems weird.  More like he is Aq-ward Man.  Don't get me wrong, I love Shark Week, just think the promo could have been more shark, less shark symphony.

No You Didn't!

I can't believe these are out already!   Frosted Flakes just said forget the rest of summer and are heading straight to the 1st Pumpkin Spice release of the year.  This is just a bit too early for my taste.  I realize beating everyone to the punch is good business.  I don't think Pumpkin Spice Season should start till the temps go below 50 at least...  40 even.... I realize there are people that wish Pumpkin…

Feelin' Saucy

So apparently there is a Siracha shortage, that is pushing up the price of the hot sauce.  Some people need some help if they are paying hundreds of dollars for a bottle.   I have not honestly inspected the price of it.  But incase you didn't know you could just make it and save your money.   Siracha it is delicious, I use it on everything.  I feel like Bubba from Forest Gump... Fries, Burgers, Noodles, Rice,…

It was a Different World.  The one-time American Idol Contestant dropped this gem.   Tammy from Navarre, hearing the above WQMX Throwback asked if she could have a Throwback today.  This one is more than being in a…
