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 Twinkie Strategy

If we’ve learned nothing else from the Great Twinkie Incident of 2012 & 2013, this much is clear: you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone. It’s funny how easy it is to take something for granted when it always seems to be available. It’s even more interesting how welcome the return of that…

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…

Forgettable? Regrettable (And Avoidable)

This man does not look happy. Thoughtful. Serious. Pensive, maybe, but not really happy. Then again, you’d look less than charmed if you were largely forgotten. The fellow pictured above is Millard Fillmore, and on this day in 1850, he became the 13th President of the United States. He tends to be one of the…

Cool it!

That’s likely a rather unnecessary order, as you’ve probably been soaking up the air conditioning for at least the past week. We certainly have been! And although cool air on command in a wonderful thing, you might not realize how very revolutionary the invention of air conditioning actually was. Before Willis Carrier invented the first air…

4th of July

Are you ready for some noise? We are! We’re also looking forward to some BBQ and time with friends and family. Our office will be closed Thursday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day. And that got us wondering about early Independence Day celebrations. When was the first? And how do all those fireworks (and…
