WHAT IS A HASH TAG? CAN YOU EAT IT?

WHAT IS A HASH TAG? CAN YOU EAT IT?

Can you believe we are half way through January?!!!!!! What a crazy begging to 2015 with a mixture of Ice Snow Wind and then Warm temperature, you know the old saying “If you don’t like the weather wait”

I am still trying to figure out this social media thing, our Facebook page continues to grow and grow and for that I thank you. I did find something about you this week, YOU LIKE HUMOR! I had posted a picture of a car wash that had on the marque “All employees trained by Mr Miyagi” I think we had the most likes and views of that picture that anything in a long time. So to give credit to where credit is due my niece Sunshine had posted that on her page and it made me laugh so I shared it with you. I guess Sunshine went viral?

Now I am trying to figure out TWITTER. I remember back in the day when some called you a TWIT it was time to fight! But now I guess to tweet is KOOL. I have no idea what a # hash tag is… I do know I like HASH and used to play TAG when I was a kid… but I am #CLUESLESS.

Here are some of the fun things we talked about this past week –how smart are you. How much Pizza we eat. You got to be smarter than a button if you are a crook. How much money do you carry” and the Price of going to the movies. You can listen here

So have a great weekend and we will try again on Monday

Saving Pennies Adds Up

Saving Pennies Adds Up

September 10 2014

On Thursday the KOOL.FM video of the day was all about ways to save money in our every day life. One of the tips was to use peanut butter instead of shaving cream ( which looked awful, but tasty) and it made me think of a tip my Uncle Danis gave me years ago about shaving that I still use today instead of shaving cream which can get expensive I use hand lotion! I shower 1st then apply the lotion and shave and get a good close shave that way! Just think of the money I have saved over the years, granted I had a full beard for about 25 years but still it works for me! I have know people who take any extra condiments that they get from a fast food restaurant and use them at home or when on a trip take the little soaps lotions and coffee packets when they check out. But I wouldn’t recommend taking the towels – a bathroom decorated like a Holiday Inn is not that cool.

Friday on the morning show we had you give us some money saving tips on air and on Facebook Facebook responses included :

Diane who advised to Pay your house payment every two weeks this will give you an extra payment for the year. Pay as much as you can on the principal in the beginning of the mortgage. Eat out less. Make more meals in a crock pot – great way to make economical meals and also great to come home to a meal ready to eat quickly. Take leftovers for lunch the next day. Plan meals for the week or month and stick to it. Less likely to over buy foods on a whim. Take the bus or car pool. Insulate your home, turn off appliances that keep drawing power such as a microwave or toaster or computer, TV or stereo.

Teresa posted this A good friend told me to make a menu for the week and stick to it. I finally decided to give it a try. It is great! I make a menu allowing for “eating leftover” days and only buy what I need to make those dishes. My grocery bill is a lot lower each week. Before I would walk through the grocery store aisles thinking, “I might need this” or “if I make this recipe I’ll need some of this” but then never make the recipe. Now I buy what I need to make the 3-4 dishes a week I selected. A lot easier and a lot less stressful because I know what I’m going to make rather than standing in front of the pantry trying to figure out what I can make with the ingredients I happen to have. Also, some of the store brands are just as good or a lot better tasting than the major brands – and a lot cheaper!

Megan I made it a rule to NEVER buy clothes full-price. Pretty much every store will have at least a 20% off at some point, but most will have 40-60% off, so I always wait for those sales. I also try to stack coupons with those sales to get a better deal! I buy a lot of stuff on Amazon as well, and it’s usually cheaper than going to the store. I also use Ebates, which is awesome to get money back on what I’m buying online!

Some great calls on Friday morning too! Listen to them here

During the week we found out about a new Ghost busters movie – our favorite fast food – we remembered the late Paul revere and the nominees for the class of 2015 in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame listen here

See ya in the morning

 I am writing this on Friday October 3rd at 8:20am as Earth Wind and Fire plays on KOOL 103.9 – I thought it might be interesting to tell you a little about my work here at KOOL 103.9.

Every Monday through Friday I wake up at 4:30am and get ready to come do a job I love! Even if I have to wake up at 4:30 am it still is a great way to start my day. I get to the studio at 5am ( I am lucky to live close by ) and I start running! Not really, have you seen me— I haven’t ran in years. Actually I start getting ready to help you start your day by visiting several web sites to find out some fun things for us to do every morning. Then in between songs I am working on adding music and sound to some of the things for on air. There have been several times I have added the final touches on an item just moments before it airs. Then it’s on to the next thing and then the next… so you can see I usually don’t have a lot of time to sit back and sing along with the GREATEST HIT’S OF ALL TIME. Let me tell you if you heard me sing you would probably say “DAVE, I WANT TO BUY A RECORD OF YOU SINGING” I wish, I love to sing along but my singing voice is on key (almost).

At 10am David Fanning takes over and I get a short break for lunch with my wife each day. Then it’s back to the studio’s to get ready for the next day. I have had people say to me “Boy, you sure have an easy job, playing music 5 hours a day then home” HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA not so 45 breath. There are a lot of behind the scenes things that need to get done everyday. Everyone of us here at the Cache Valley media group averages about 10 hours a day and that does not include when we do remote broadcast. I tell people that radio is not a 9 to 5 job but I wouldn’t have it any other way. It is a great way to make a living and I love the opportunity I have to help you start your day. I get to talk to several of you on the phone and look forward to the times we can share a laugh or two.

Here ARE some of the fun things we did this week, with strange news items, The Money Man coming back to the Jazz, the richest people in the USA, Stamping out crime, and Dave’s matter of perspective unemployment figures.

Thanks again for listening, if you didn’t I might have to get a real job!!!!!

Movie Quotes

Movie Quotes

I have a friend name Ken and when we get together most of our conversations will be spiced with movie quotes.  Thinking about that I thought it would be KOOL to look back at some of these.  So with a great help of several You Tube Video’s are a bunch of those quotes

I guess it’s time for a movie night and party at my house “TOGA – TOGA”
