The reason I got into radio was to make a difference. I'm personally involved with many local organizations, as well as the hundreds we work with through the station. Here are just a few of the groups I spend more time helping:
University of Iowa Children's Hospital, CMN, and Dance Marathon
The ARC of East Central Iowa
Knights of Columbus
Marion Youth Baseball
I enjoy coaching baseball, playing tennis, kickboxing, listening to music, playing board games with my kids, riding rollercoasters and taking long walks on the beach.
My favorite teams that I follow:
· Minnesota Vikings Football
· Nebraska Cornhuskers Football
· Univ of North Dakota Fighting Sioux Hockey
· Linn Mar Lions
· Iowa Hawkeyes
· Minnesota Twins & Cincinnati Reds Baseball
It's that time of year again. Many companies and offices have their annual office parties, which can sometimes lead to some employees to consume a few more beverages than they should. When this happens, it can lead to people saying what is really on their mind, inappropriate advances towards co-workers, and accidents from people driving home intoxicated. Just a reminder to use a designated driver if you choose to be the life of the party or the biggest jerk. Please don't get behind the wheeel after you have been drinking. Check out this video of a group of friends who wanted to teach their buddy a lesson.
Check out the exploding Turkey..would have been funnier if he had done it at the in-laws.
Anchorman 2 is coming soon to the Theatres and Will Ferril is everywhere on TV pitching products and of course the movie. And to do something a bit different, he's actually appearing around the country on local TV station newcasts doing the local news in character. Check out Ron Burgandy in Bismark North Dakota.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. Football, Food, & Family Fun. I thought I would share my recipes with you. I will be up at 4am on Thursday morning preparing a feast for my family.

It's been a few weeks since the first snowfall here in Iowa. It has since melted. But we finally got enough snow last night to require some shoveling and time for a decent snowball fight. Unfortuately, not enough to justify getting the snowblower out yet..rats. I actually enjoy running the Thrower and will do several neighbors houses too, just to stay outside for a while. I have not seen any snowmen yet, until I saw one online today. Check out the scary snowman in this video.
