What's The Word, Thunderbird?

Written by
On our recent trip to Zion National Park, we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere on the other side of the park at the Junction, in a place called Mt. Carmel, Utah.  Windy and I found this little eatery we will not soon forget. We found The Thunderbird.  Right up front, the food was GREAT and the service was amazing.  And this place has a wonderful story to tell. It's been there since 1931.…

Last weekend was one I will not forget for long while.  My birthday was Sunday and the Beautiful Windy and I flew to Las Vegas for the beginning of a fun, and multifacted weekend.   There are places that everyone should see.  This place was one of them. She had a business function to attend, but first we drove over to Zion National Park first for a couple days.  We were both stunned at what we…

They DO Exist!

Written by
The other day I needed gasoline, and was I running pretty low. I was at the intersection of I-71 and Bagley Road and saw the first and easiest station was just up ahead. And It was a Gulf Station!  Gulf?  I can't remember the last time I saw one.  This place I think used to be a Sunoco, but now it's a Gulf! Being honest, I hadn't thought of them in decades, and I thought…

Just Go There!

Written by
It had been way too long since I have been to Niagara Falls.   Many years in fact.  And after Windy and I went there last weekend, I wondered why.  It's one of the most amazing places on earth,  (no exaggeration) and should be seen. And it's just a couple hours away.  If you have not been in a while, load up and go. You'll be at the Falls in about 3.5 hours.  And you'll wonder…

Local Biz Magic 2!

Written by
As a long time homeowner, you may have at times had the same problem I have had.  It is difficult at times, to find people to work on your house.  You would not think it's a problem, but it can be.  People to do the BIG stuff. Roof, major repairs and so on.  It's your home and it's expensive. You want to give the biz, and the money to someone qualified and to someone you…

Local Biz Magic!

Written by
I have owned my house for 18 years now. It's the longest I have lived at the same address in my life.  This summer I decided that I was going to hire a bit of help to do some big jobs that needed done.  I have been doing these jobs all along, but over time, things catch up to you and it makes it harder to catch up.  So I learned of a great LOCAL…

Go Ahead - Donate!

Written by
In am the voice of Habitat For Humanity of Summit County, and I'm proud of that.  I took my own advice late last week, and contacted Habitat and made a donation that made my life easier and didn't cost me a thing.  I had some stuff in my basement of the Old House that needed to be gotten rid of.  Nothing wrong with it, it just outlived its usefullness with me.  Some large cabinets and…

Doggy Smile!

Written by
This week we had a fun question on our show, that about 65% of us think that our dogs can smile! I believe that is true.  If your dog doesn''t have a mouth smile, they certainly get that happy smile face going, especially when the treats are out.  Also, give your dogs a reason to smile and they will! Juneau in the Cool Myrtle - AND  - Juneau in the Warm Sun -  Both Make…

A House With A Flag!

Written by
When I bought The Old House 18 years ago, I bought it from an elderly gentleman, (a veteran) who never lived in the house. His name was Larry, and he used it for an investment property.  But before I bought it, the place was vacant for a couple months while he did some clean up and updates, you know the usual stuff.  When I first saw the house a week after 911, I noticed that…

Rascal Flatt, Always a Good Show!

Written by
This past Friday was the last show at Blossom for the 2019 season. It was Rascal Flatts with Jordan Davis and Jimmie Allen. Of course, I had a great time. There is something about Rascal Flatts. Yes, they play all their hits, but here is something else to it. I figured it out. The guys kept mentioning that they were so grateful that they have been able to do what they love as band for…
