A Sign for the Times We Live In

A Sign for the Times We Live In

A topic on my program today dealt with the city of Grand Forks, North Dakota and their desire to have $30 fines for anyone caught texting while driving.  Were it up to me, the fine would be no less than $500.  It’s time to stop treating this with kid gloves.  A new law and fine […]

Eye on Monday: Sneak-a-Peek Cell Phone Technique (video)

I was speaking with a friend the other day about people and their cell phones. Namely, how folks can be in mid-sentence with you, stop abruptly, check their cell for a new text message and then continue talking as if nothing happened. Or, worse, they’ll actually interrupt you to read a text, then send a reply […]

Eye on Monday: Greek Easter Can Be Dangerous (video)

As any of you who come to Blog Harbor on a regular basis know, I’m Greek.  Greek, as in Greek Orthodox.  And while I always celebrate Easter on it’s traditional day, Orthodox Easter follows the Julian Calendar which means, more often than not, Greek Easter is after Passover.  So, two Easter dinners.  Greek People: It’s […]

The Drive-Thru Window and #3418

Christopher Gabriel, It all started out like a great idea.  You drive up and order.  You drive a little further and pay.  Then you wait patiently before you receive what you’ve ordered.  And within minutes, you’re on your way.  Coffee, food, prescriptions, even alcohol – you did it all without ever getting out of the car.  It’s […]

A Trophy for Everyone: The Seeds of Entitlement

When I was growing up, I played sports.  Basketball was what I eventually settled on by high school but prior to that I also played baseball and ran track.  When there was a tournament during the year or the playoffs at the end of the season, there were winners and there were losers.  The winners got […]
