  • History......

    I constantly have a running freight train of spliced thoughts/ideas/questions rampaging through the confines of my subconsciious at all hours day and night....sometimes its kind of awesome,,,,and then sometimes its not so uhh...awesome.....anyways as i was doing my usual insmnia routine late last night I was pre occupied with the where and how our nation's capital cities became just that.....a capital city........I have always been a history nerd....I dont deny that.....I love history..which is why this was driving me to the brink of simply cheating (googling ha).....I mean how and why did Topeka for example become the capital city of KS?.....i mean did some dude back in the 1800s just put up a flag in Topeka and no one ever bothered to question?...I am just curious thats all....I mean how did Sacramento become the capital in CA when they obviously had other more central and larger cities......and how did Austin become the capital of TX when you would think Dallas or even San Antonio would be right?.......I Know.....I think too much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! anyways I hope you are having a great week and thank you as always for stopping by! Rick

Finally, after all the hub bub.....after all the fanfare......after all the tailgaiting.........The NFL playoffs are set to begin!!!!! My team has been out of the running for a couple months but I still look forward to watching this weekend's action.....Can a 7 and 9 team upset the 11 and 5 Saints???? Can the upstart KC Chiefs pull of the impossible and make a deep run??? Will Michael Vick cap off one of sports greatest come backs with a Superbowl run?????.....who is going to be that one team in the playoffs that no one....and I mean no one saw comming?.......Win or go home this weekend!!!!! I for one can not wait! thanks for checking in Rick

  • Ghosts

    ....Do you believe in things that go bump in the night? Do you believe in ghosts....spirits.....things from the other side so to speak?....Honestly I used to really never believe in any of that but as of lately I dont know....I mean who am I to say its not possible?....just the other night I was woken by my dog barking loudly and growling......it was 3:45 am and Ozzie never....and I mean never...barks and growls aggresively unless something is happening.....which is what startled me....I mean he was going to town.....barking and growling with both ears stiff and straight back....he saw or sensed something....being half awake i just kinda stared over in the direction he was barking at...i was half out of it due to it being so late but i know that i was awake because i specificially recall looking at my cel to see what time it was and it was 3:47am.....as i started to try and focus Ozzie just kept barking and growling and stiffining up like Boxers do when they sense a threat....anyone who has ever owned a Boxer knows precisely what i am talking about....try as i might though I saw absolutely nothing there....I kept staring for about a minute and then decided that Ozzie must have just picked up a strange odor or just heard something from outside.....who knows right.....this is where it gets weird.....i then proceeded to lay my head back down on my pillow....and thats when it happened.....I don't know how to explain this.....but i heard something that very eerily sounded like people talking....it sounded like a man and a woman having a conversation....I AM NOT KIDDING.....it was a low enough level that i could not make out what they were saying......and it sounded as though they were just calmly talking....it went on for all of ten seconds......and it scared the living hell outta me....because if Ozzie was hearing it.....then it had to exist in some way......i got up and through every light in my living room/kitchen area on and of course found no one there.....i went out on my porch in 25 degree weather in a t shirt and had a smoke.......then i went in and watched tv for an hour before i could go back to sleep.......IT WAS STRANGE!!!!!.....so who am i to say? I have no idea what that was and i probably will never know for sure.........thank u for stopping by RIck

  • Underdogs

    ....I love a good underdog....How can anyone not??? Which is why I would love to see Seattle win this weekend against New Orleans......I have absolutely nothing against the New Orleans Saints....I love the city of New Orleans and i have a ton of respect for the Saints organization....what they did last year was stuff that storybooks are made of.....but I still have to find myself pulling for Seattle this weekend.....I mean they finished 7 and 9....NO ONE is giving them a prayer of a chance....which is exactly why I say....GO SEATTLE!!!!! I love it when the unexpected happens....especially in the playoffs...I am not by any means saying they will pull it off this weekend....but hey....you never know! Thanks for stopping by,,,,,,,, RIck

  • Winter

    ..Our first real snow of the season.....not bad when you think about the fact that it's already mid january and spring is right around the corner!..I can recall winters in my childhood when we got snow on halloween.....I can also recall sledding all day down hills at my grandparents farm during the winter.....to an eleven yr old boy it was paradise!....I was hoping the Chiefs would have made a better game of it yesterday....when you turn the ball over that m any times you really can't expect to win....I love the fact that Seattle won!....when the unexpected happens it rocks!!!.......anyways thanks much for checking in..................Rick

  • today

    On Jan 12th 1926 the two man comedy series Sam n Henry debuted on WGN radio in Chicago....they would later change the name of the show to Amos n Andy......I can only imagine what radio was like back then....to be able to travel back in time and actually witness one of these types of shows as it happened would be nothing short of incredible.....I guess i am kind of a nerd when it comes to history...especially the history of this carnival we call radio (and i do mean that in the most positive of ways).....I mean what those guys did back then......they were true pioneers....they did what had never been done and they often created it as it occurred....right off the cuff......I can only imagine what that must have been like!!!....they had no delays.....no editing capabilities.....they were LIVE....in every sense of the word......God what that must have been like flying by the seat of their pants.......its like Sidney Freedman once said (Major Freedman of MASH fame)........"Ladies and gentlemen take my advice....pull down your pants and slide on the ice"....to me there is a true beauty and undeniable truth in what they did...i mean think about it.....no matter what anyone does or says today......those guys did something that was revolutionary and no one.....and i mean no one....will ever take that from them. Thank you for checking in! Rick

  • weekend!

    .....the weekend is right around the corner.....any big plans?.....I will definitely be out and about so by all means come say hi!

  • ramblings....

    ...wassup!!!! And then there were four.......so whose it gonna be? Will it be the mighty Packers from the frozen tundra......or maybe it will be the hard hitting Steelers from the infamous steel city......or perhaps it will be the fast talking east coasters aka the Jets....or will it be the monsters of the midway.......Da Bears???????......who knows for sure right.....I mean if I could predict these types of things flaulessly I would be a multimillionaire by now...living on an island and getting fed cocktails by playboy playmates.....anyways I do hope your weekend went well.....and thank you for checking in! Rick

  • Boxers

    ....You will not find a more loyal and trustworthy dog than a Boxer......period.......I have a three yr old male named Ozzie who is awesome!...I got my first Boxer about 7 yrs ago....I have never owned another breed since....Don't get me wrong....they definitely are not for everyone....just ask any Boxer owner.....but for those of us who they are for......like i said...you can not find a better dog,,,,Ozzie recently figured out how to open up my patio door with his front paws....i am not kidding....the thing about Boxers are that they are fiercely protective of those they consider their family....they are amazing with kids....I have never been around a breed that understands the concept of watching over small children like the Boxer does.....they are incredibly fun loving animals that simply refuse to ever totally grow up....and i wouldn't have them any other way! Thank you for checking in.....RIck

  • 127 hours

    ...Am thinking about checking out 127 hours....(the movie about the dude that got his arm caught under a boulder while hiking and had to cut it off to survive).....the reviews are outstanding...I can't imagine having to make that decision!!!!
