Sweat and Odor? Solved by Degree Black + White

As I’ve gotten older, my reason for buying things is because they solve problems and improve life.  I’ve developed a greater appreciation for things like vaccines, freon, electricity, and plumbing – innovations that made the world better …forever. Not to mention Bogs, rain boots,…

Google Home Might Be Greatest Thing Ever

Don’t tell my wife, but I’ve fallen in love with another woman. Well, another woman’s voice. OK. Not another “woman” in the literal sense, but the female voice that greets me when I say, “Hey, Google,” many, many times each day. How did I…

The iHeartRADIO App is the BEST (use the All Access version FREE this weekend)

No. This isn’t me “drinking the Kool-Aid.” This is me, Don, the music and App lover. This is me saying, “iHeartRADIO All Access is the best music App, followed by Spotify, followed by Pandora.” Don’t believe me? Dude. Try the All Access version FREE this…

I’m Good at (and I like) What I Do!

If you have a business and thought about using audio (radio) to build your company, you should call me. For the third time in the past 6 months, a new client has called to say, “Don, we need to trim back on our radio…

The Best Podcast I’ve Heard in a While

I believe in Divine Inspiration. I believe that sometimes, when I pray (and I believe in prayer because, well, at the risk for making my readers uncomfortable, I believe in Jesus and God and I believe there is some good in praying to them),…

A Reflection on the Life of My Uncle Jerry

  Uncle Jerry was like a second father to me. I didn’t necessarily need a second father, because I have a great Dad, but it’s a blessing when a guy (me) has many guiding hands and influences. I was blessed. My Uncle Jerry had…

Oh, Great, I Like Another Band That Typically Appeals to Teen Girls

Why!?!?! Why did I happen in A.K.’s office on Friday and why did the conversation get hijacked and turn towards my juvenile taste in music? Why, when I talked about Weezer and their upcoming tour, did it somehow take a detour and I found myself saying, “Weezer…

Do You Want to be Happy for the Next Three Minutes?

It’s funny how a couple of nights ago I sat through a lecture about the meaning of Advent and how it relates to the four levels of happiness. No where during this hour-and-a-half-long presentation did the speaker address where on the heirarchy something like…

A Holiday Memory – The Correct Way To Hang Certain Ornaments

Anyone care for a Mary Lou story? Something’s been nagging at me, lately. I have all these memories of stuff, and I like to write, and a few people (family members) have said on more than one occasion, “you should put all those stories…

My New Favorite Song

I don’t know anything about Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, but imagine my surprise when I heard the song (video below) on a local alternative radio station. I wouldn’t think this song belongs on an Alt Rock station, but I’m O.K. with any…

Never Give Up!

Most times I would write a full blog entry describing what I took from this video, but I’m at a loss for words. Trust me, however, the football game and MSU’s improbably victory is only a metaphor and completely minimized in the face of…

Perfectly My Dad

Hopefully my Dad doesn’t see this (because he might think I’m making fun of him), but if he does, hopefully he knows that this is such a perfect encapsulation (is “encapsulation” a word?) of his spirit and part of why we all love him,…
