I grew up in the Midwest. I miss thunder and lightning storms most of all. Monday's storms rocked and took me back. But the video above...that's not a tornado. Okay maybe "technically" it was...but let me tell you. I've been in 3 tornadoes in my life. Would not like to do that again. I was once in a radio studio broadcasting severe weather information (the only one in the building), when one touched down in the parking lot and broke our transmitter antenna like a pixie stick. My son used to be scared of "tormadoes"...he just announced, now he's just scared of lightning. I can sleep like a baby during a lightning storm. Hope I get the chance again. :)

I'm proud to say...I'm a Rosedalian. I've lived in Rosedale all but one year of my time in Bakersfield. When I moved here...there was no Target Greatland...no Chuy's, no Red Lobster, Roadhouse, Chili's, Macaroni Grill, Home Depot or Best Buy. I've seen Rosedale explode and grow. But did you know there was a North of the River Chamber of Commerce? Yeah, me either! Yesterday, I had the chance to find out more...NOR Chamber was resurrected ten years ago as the area known as Green Acres grew into more than just a few horse properties. I played in the NOR Chamber golf outing at the Links at River Lakes. It was a way to raise money for college scholarships for students at Liberty, Centennial, Frontier and North Highs. I've lived in larger metropolitan areas that were made up of several "suburbs" or municipalities. They all had their own identity, but they were in fact their own towns. Bakersfield has neighborhoods and areas. Rosedale, Stockdale, Oildale, the Southwest, the northeast. I know Oildale has been working hard on economic development. NOR seems to have been doing that as well...I just didn't know about it until yesterday!
$1.6 Million! That brings the total in just the last 3 years to $5.78 MILLION DOLLARS in the fight against cancer! I'm am truly blessed to be associated with such an amazing event, dedicated committee members, awesome team captains and members and all the countless volunteers. This year's Relay For Life was probably one of the best...if not the hottest event (ouch). But every year, seeing the sea of purple survivor shirts means the money we raise is WORKING! My partner Brent and I had a great time on the stage all weekend. Thanks to the awesome bands who gave their time...Red River Blues Project, Vanity Avenue, The Aviators, Truxton Mile, Thee Majestics (who let me share that stage every year...you are the best my brothers!), Vowed to One and Members Only!
Another HUGE year!
The Greatest Steering Committee on the planet!
My "break" with THEE MAJESTICS!
Mila Kunis tops FHMs Sexiest Woman in the World list. The runner-up was Rihanna, followed by Helen Flanagan, Michelle Keegan, Kelly Brook and Kaley Cuoco. I know who Mila, Rihanna and certainly Kaley Cuoco are. Definitely worthy. Never heard of Helen Flanagan, Michelle Keegan or Kelly Brook. Thanks to Google Images...now you know.
Some stadiums are just places for people to watch sports – while others could be considered to be shrines, making the event more than just a game, turning it into an unforgettable experience. Here are some stadiums, according to Uncoached.com, every fan should visit:
First while agree that Augusta National is a shrine, and I’d KILL to walk the fairways…its not really a stadium now is it? How about Wrigley Field? (of COURSE I’d add that). I’d also say for pure enjoyment of a baseball game, you can’t beat
Here's an interesting dilemma: Would you be willing to get your company's logo TATTOOED on your body to get a MASSIVE RAISE? There's a real estate company in
Anthony Lolli is the owner of Rapid Realty. He says he got the idea from an employee who got the logo tattooed JUST out of loyalty. Anthony wanted to repay his loyalty, so he thought of the raise idea. So far, FORTY of his employees have taken the deal, and gotten Rapid Realty tattoos. Anthony is also covering the cost of the tattoo itself.
As a radio deejay…there are certain superstitions about things you do not do…because as soon as you do it…you’ll probably get fired. One is GETTING A TATTOO OF YOUR LOGO! Also on the list: Getting a vanity license plate with your call letters or show name on it, buying a house in the market, or turning down a gig in a bigger city. By the way…only one of those has proved true for me (thanks
After living in Bakersfield for over a decade, I really get tired of hearing people say "there's nothing to do here". Are you kidding me? This past weekend there was the Western Street Rod Nationals, the Festival of Beers, a Bud Light Comedy series event...and that's just a few. We're heading into May...the official start of "there's TOO MUCH going on around here" month!
I didn't even mention the opening of the new Kern Raceway, Blaze games at Sam Lynn Ballpark, Mother's Day celebrations etc. If you're sitting home on the couch during May...you're just not trying.
We've just completed our 3rd Valley Cycle Bike Night dice game for 2013. As the jackpot grows each week by $500...each roll becomes more important than ever. Mike and I have noticed several different styles of "rollers" and "shakers". Which one would you be?
As for SHAKERS...
Whichever style you use...come on out to Valley Cycle Bike Night and hang with us Wednesday nights! Roll 5 letters...spelling 'WIN IT' and you'll go into our Dice Rollers Hall of Fame!
