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.
-I bleed Green & Gold, so I enjoy this link a lot. You might too...
-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...
1) Steam things up: Steam helps loosen mucus. Get into a nice hot shower and allow the steam to really get inside your system and soak it in. When you get out,
top it off by putting a warm compress (a washcloth will be fine) over your eyes.
2) Tea time: Tea has very strong antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Like steam from the shower, the warm liquids soothe the throat and loosen
excess mucus production.
3) Up your vitamin C: One study reported that taking .2 grams or more
daily of vitamin C shortened the number of days a cold lasts by 8 percent.
4) Swear off dairy: Milk and other dairy products make phlegm in the
throat thicker and possibly more irritating.
5) Spice up your life: Spicy foods increase blood flow in the body and,
just like a vapor rub, can clear up your sinuses.
6) Skip the sweets: Sugar can decrease the activity of the immune system
for up to five hours or so. Say goodbye to chocolate and hello to natural
sweeteners like Stevia.
7) Squeeze in some exercise: I know I know, hitting the gym is the last
thing you want to do. Youwant to lay in your bed for eight hours straight and
watch a Friends marathon. But exercise betters your immune function and removes toxins from the body.
8) Use moisturizing tissues: You already feel like junk, there's no
reason to look like it too. Buy the tissues with moisturizing lotion so that
you don't take out your anger on your nostrils.
9) Put an extra pillows under your head: Laying upright will drain the
nasal passages correctly.
10) Get some sleep! Sleep is the best medicine there is. Take some time
for yourself, kick back, and shut out the world for a bit. Believe me, they'll
be happy when you're back and not spreading your sickness.
