I was asked to “offer-up” some personal information for this page, so you, the reader, can learn more about me (note-taking is recommended as there may be a quiz at the end). I was born a poor black man, no wait, that’s Navin R. Johnson from “The Jerk” (favorite movie). Actually, I was born an Air-Force brat at the Air-Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO. In typical military fashion, we moved almost every year until my father retired from the service. I spent almost all of my “growing” years in Wisconsin. Stops along the way include Waukesha, Sheboygan Falls, Eau Claire, and La Crosse, although most of the time was in Green Bay. Yes, I’m a Packer fan. At one time, I lived about six blocks from Lambeau Field, and I went to Vincent T. Lombardi Jr. High. I now have dogs named Vince, and Lombardi, only because my wife refused to let me grace my baby daughter with the middle name of Lombardi... High school was followed by a year at UW-River Falls where I did everything but go to class (it’s no wonder I was asked not to return for my Sophomore year. The letter read something like, "We suggest you pursue something different at this point in time..."). From there, it was off to Brown Institute in Minneapolis to “study” radio (like there’s a lot to study!) For me, the radio road has gone through Carroll, Algona, and Emmetsburg (all in Iowa) before my stay here in Sioux City, where I’ve been since 1998.

-The Roller Dames kick ass. Check out the gals here!
-The nickname is Chopper. So, of course, I fit in with bikers, and some of the nicest ones I've ever met belong to the Independent Riders for Children and Charities. They ride all the time, plus do great things for their communities. Their motto is 'Helping out where we can, doing what's right, making an impact'. They live up to it too! There's an event coming up soon, so check them out...
On Saturday (May4th) gardeners around the country celebrated the 10th annual World Naked Gardening Day. The man who started the event -- 54-year-old Mark Storey -- explained the concept, saying, "The gardening-naked connection is pretty natural. There's not much body acceptance around, so the idea is to get people to try it. Maybe they will realize that the human body is OK, and also beautify the Earth a little bit." Storey said the event isn't about a large gathering of naked gardeners, but more about people celebrating it wherever they live --- in their own way. He added, "It could be a little old lady in downtown
A new study finds that those who do nice things for their significant other feel
more committed, but those who receive the nice actions do not feel more committed. Researchers found this by studying 164 couples, married and unmarried, who had been in relationships between six months and 44-years. Each of the 328 individuals filled out daily online surveys over the course of the week about sacrifices they made for their partner in 12 categories such as: child care, household tasks, and amount of time spent with friends. They were also asked to report on the number of hassles they experienced that day, and how committed they felt to their partners. The study found that individuals who made sacrifices for their significant others generally felt more committed to their partners when they did nice things for them, except on days when they had experiences a lot of hassels.
