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) Practice "respiratory etiquette." It's the new catchphrase used by hospitals and other professional healthcare facilities, and it's pretty much an updated version of the old common sense rules: Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with warm soap and water, especially before eating, etc., plus interesting new info about disinfecting surfaces (cold and flu germs can live for HOURS outside the body) and be sure not to share ANYTHING, even towels, with someone who's sick.
2) Gargle with warm salt water. People who gargle with water
a few times a day are one-third less likely to catch colds; salt and warm water once you're already sick helps clear the virus out of your throat.
3) Drink hot tea with honey and lemon. Again, old common sense wisdom backed up by modern science -- hot drinks "stimulate digestion, ease cold and flu symptoms, and give your immune system an extra kick," honey (particularly darker varieties) has such strong antimicrobial properties it's been shown to reduce risk of flu infection, and lemon adds Vitamin C and antioxidants.
4) Use a nasal spray or neti pot. These work the same way gargling does.
5) Try brewer's yeast. Apparently sprinkling a teaspoon of brewer's yeast on your food every day can really boost the heck out of your immune system
