  • The Pledge Allegiance Is NOT a Prayer

    We got an email from a guy who found himself in an awkward situation at dinner at his girlfriend's house. Her dad asked him to say the Blessing before the meal. Well, this guy didn't know a proper prayer. He said as a kid he sometimes said, "Good Bread, Good Meat, Thank God, Let's Eat." But that wouldn't work in this case. So, he started naming each food and thanking God for it. He realized he was going WAY too long and wasn't doing a good job. He called it "the most uncomfortable event" of his life. I know that feeling and was in that position a time or two. Saying the Blessing is a lot of pressure if you aren't used to doing it. It makes me think of the scene in Christmas Vacation when Aunt Bethany was asked to say the Blessing and said The Pledge Of Allegiance instead. That is NOT acceptable in most situations. So, here is a simple dinner prayer that you can memorize and use in every situation.

  • I love radio AND radio's.

    I've been into radio all my life. I remember a night at Danny Lillards house in the 60's when he turned on a radio. I remember Jay and the Americans singing Cara Mia & John Fred & the Playboys singing Judy in Disguise. I'm not sure why I remember that, but I do, my brain is wired that way. I remember the DJ conducting a contest and giving a phone number. This was a local station, so we called and won!!! It was something like a coupon for a pizza, but that was the exact moment I was hooked. I didn't call a station for a contest for several more years, but that's when I began listening to radio often - and buying radios.

  • $150 Face Spray for Christmas.

    Christmas shopping I found myself at a cosmetics counter. My eyes were drawn to a display with small cans of aerosol spray that were priced at $150. The cans appeared to be abour 4 or 5 ounces. The spray was some sort of "age defying" concoction that promised results in no more than 3 days. The sign said this stuff "rivals Botox" in it's ability to make you appear younger. They had a "tester". I deduced that at $150 a can, even a "test spray" of this stuff would be worth five bucks. I thought about trying it for a moment - maybe come back three days in a row - to see if I saw marked improvement. Just as I was reaching for the can, a saleswoman approached. "May I help you?" All I was able to blurt out was, "$150 a can???" She said "Yes" and went on to extol the virtues of this magic liquid in the can. I thought (but did not say out loud) she'd have to sell me the stuff naked - for me to spend $150. I thought fast. Last week I was asked how old I was when purchasing a pack of cigarettes. They key the age in for verification. I asked the cigarette lady how old I looked. She thought for a moment and said, "32?" I said "That's it! You got it exactly. (She was quite low.) I decide now to ask the lady with the $150 super spray the same question. I figure she's going to say once again a low number. Confidently I ask, "How old do I look?" She says, "Uhhhh......52?" It was at that moment I realized I was dealing with a very very very good salesperson. I'm sure when training to sell $150 cans of age defying spray, the salespeople are instructed to add 20 years when asked to guess a customers age. Yeah, that's it. That's gotta be it.
