A busy day in Berlin
Today we had 3 busy segments. Fencebuilder Jan and I went around
Berlin getting my Christmas presents that I need for my German kids and
Friends. Then I had a wonderful dinner with Ilona and Peter Kraft
(parents of a student that was hosted by a friend) and then late into the
evening talking to Henry, my #1 foreign student son. It's been so much
fun surprising my kids! More on that later.

Canadian Thanksgiving! Welcome Canadians.
So did our friend Chris really discover anything? Probably not.
But the big thing he learned was that it was a LOOOOOOONG way around the
world! And from an economic point of view, he brought back the
news that there was something here that could be "exploited!"
Pecena Kachna Recipe 1 5-pound duck
1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds (a bit more if you like)
salt to taste
2 cups water
Clean and wash duck. Sprinkle with salt and caraway seeds inside and out.
Pour 1 cup water into roasting pan, put in duck breast down, cover and roast
in a 350 degree oven for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Turn duck and roast, uncovered,

It was six years ago today. I was preparing for my morning radio shows
as I had done for years before. The first airplane hit and being in
technology, my first thoughts were that it was the biggest computer glitch
that has ever happened! Then at the moment of the second impact
there was no doubt. The world as I was living in it would be forever
changed. This was not a technology error, someone was attaching us in
an entirely new way. Here's a timeline of those events.

Pavarotti will long be remembered as the benchmark of quality. To put
a little smile on his passing, we have for you one of his "contracts" that
gave instructions to the hotels and backstage areas of just how he wanted
thing setup. AHHH if only we could live like that! Goodbye

They're called the naked scientists...but before you think you're going to
see a lot of sun neglected skin, pull in your rambling thoughts and listen
up. They're called Naked because they have this radio show and they'll
take questions on ANY topic. ANY science topic that is. No prep,
no planning, just audience questions about anything scientific...and then
they give easily understandable answers...does it get any better than that?
Where where you in Sixty Two? ? ?

We've had some fun with google analytics and found out that the highest
visitation of this website recently was when we featured the webcam in
Yellowstone Park, looking at Old Faithful! I like this one even
better. For a couple of reasons. #1, I've walked down this
street, even as recently as December 06, #2 I'm one of a very few news
people who have had a private tour of the building on the right which is
being torn down. (It was the People's Palace when they were communist)
#3 if you watch at the right time you can see one of my foreign kids (Henry)
walking to or from work. #4 It's a LIVE feed, prepare to watch an ever
changing picture, NOT one that just refreshed every minute or so!

the twittering that birds make each morning that can wake some of us up as

We've talked about this in past years, but it's a web page that has
developed STAYING POWER, which I think is neat! It's called WOOT!
Each day at midnight they offer ONE PRODUCT (and ONE product only!) for
sale. They sell it till it's gone. But if it's gone there's NO
re-ordering. ONE SHOT, buy it, or forget it. Today I bought a

Today's Cool Site is about NAS. Don't know what that is? Well if
you have more than 1 computer and if what you have on the computers is
valuable to you...then it's time to learn. NAS means, Network-attached
Security. A box that sits in the corner and acts as a backup for your
data. BUT here's the catch. If you get one with just 1
hard drive in it...and then that hard drive fails (which they all will some
day!) then you've lost your data again. Look for one that has a RAID
feature. Two or more hard drives that both contain ALL the info.
If one dies, the machine tells you, you put in a new drive and it
automatically rebuilds the backed-up data on the new drive. Here's
And even more info

So today was the day. We are all supposed to NOT purchase gasoline
today says the email that makes big claims as to a successful boycott a few
years ago. HOGWASH, it's an Urban Legend! If you want to affect
(or is it effect?) gas prices, purchase a vehicle that gets better mileage
OR drive less. If we all do that, supply and demand economics takes
over rather quickly, but stopping gas purchases for a day is a joke!

REITMEIER ELEVATED TO "SIDEKICK"
Ryan Bakken and I went to the same high school together, we graduated in the
same year. He went into print and I ended up in Radio. Now the
competition is on! In his feature article for the Grand Forks Herald
this week he talks about how he is going to try to outdo us in getting folks
to the Sacred Heart Fish Dinner. (Jim Bollman did 818 his week,
I did 800 on the nose last week!) The plastic gloves are off, the fish
tongs are drawn. But he was nice enough to mention me in his
column...and I quote, "And, two days ago, Bollman radio sidekick
John Reitmeier hit 800 on the button." SIDEKICK? WOW Where
did that come from? So I did a search for "sidekicks" in history and
the trip down memory lane was worth it. Check out these famous
SIDEKICKS from yesteryear!

change our country forever. The Beatles arrived on American
soil! I remember the night after...it was a valentines dance...I was
in Junior High School. Records were being played and there was an
album of the Beatles there. It got passed around a bit but not
one song was played. Then on Feb 9 the did their appearance on Ed
Sullivan's Sunday night variety show and the EXPLOSION began!

run effectively it needs 2 Gigs of RAM, a DUAL CORE processor, the highest
quality of video card available, a 7200 RPM Drive, and a DVD reader to
install it. If you're going for it, go for a new computer at the same
time! Here's some of the official announcement.
