Okay, okay. We’ll give you 2011. And we’ll even throw in 2010 if you really need it. 2012? Got it, and it’s yours for the asking. Before you get the wrong idea, however, we’d probably clarify. We can’t give you back the days, weeks & months of years past, but we can give you a…

Cool it!

We thought we’d finally discovered The Big Heavy: we received an ad for a 2 ton air conditioning unit. It’s common knowledge that most window units are hardly featherweight, but still! We wondered how large, exactly, was this behemoth of a cooling system? Visions of stories-tall machinery danced in our heads. And then we researched…

Radio Activity

We’re radio active! No fear, though: there’s no need to get out that spiffy lead apron used for X-rays in the dentist’s office. Our radio activity is of a rather benign sort. Harmless. Safe. And rather fun, if we do say so ourselves. Catch us on the air every Saturday morning on NEPA’s ESPN radio…

Like Magic!

Oh ho ho, it’s Magic, you know. Never believe it’s not so! *ahem* We hope you’ll forgive us that little blast from the past (and that you’ll also forgive us for getting that Pilot song stuck in your head as well as ours), but we’ve seldom come across a pet with such an apt name! Magic…

The students had the opportunity to compete for honors in one of the more than 60 different business and business-related events.  In addition, they were…

Out of a Clear Blue Sky

Pop culture for this day in 1979 said it all: Moonraker was the #1 film in the country and “Rock the Boat” held the top spot on the Billboard chart. The boat was certainly about to be rocked, and – yes – it came from the sky. On July 11, 1979 Skylab crashed to the…

Bear With Us

It’s July 10th and that means that it’s also a day to observe the cultural customs of Ursus Theodorus. (In other words, it’s Teddy Bear Picnic Day.) You probably remember that upbeat little ditty: not only was it merrily cranked out by countless music boxes and toddler toys, it was also featured as background music…

Where It’s @

Shift. Then the number 2. It’s a keyboard combination that we all type with some frequency. And it’s also one that most of us used very little until the last two decades; before email, we just didn’t pay all that much attention to @. So we wondered (don’t we always?) why that little A in the…
