More birthday celebrations today

Written by
We are continuing with the birthday wishes today...only on a local scale this time.  First, I want to tell you about an amazing woman. She goes to the same gym I do, and I see her there everyday. My Mom and I stopped to talk to her one day and she told us that her son drives her to the gym everyday and she walks 2 miles while she's there. I found out that today…

For Season 25, "The Voice" is adding yet another Country singer to the ranks! Keith Urban will join the show this Spring as a Mega Mentor. He already has some experience with the show in a way.

Toby Keith - Class of 2024

Written by
It should come as no surprise to anyone that Toby Keith will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville as part of their Class of 2024. As every trade magazine article, and really ANY article you read is saying - it's always been a matter of when, not if he'd get in. I think you can speak for almost anyone in music (especially Country) when you say - "It's About Time".

It's tourney time!

Written by
The NCAA Basketball Tournament selection day is this weekend. Right now, all of the conferences are having their tournaments and the MAC is no different. What's great is that the conference is headquarted in Cleveland, so that has helped ensure that the tournament is held in our own backyard. Having gone to a MAC school myself (like many of you I'm sure), we know the excitment around this time of year. If you have never…

This little dude is expensive!

Written by
I had a meeting early this afternoon here at work. After that was over I had some shopping to do for the fur monster pictured above. It was time to get more "bathroom necessities" for him. I get 3 35 pound tubs at a time - about $20 each. Then, he needed new boxes too, and I got myself a new scooper. By the time I was out the door, I put $90 on my…
