  • CHICKEN FRIED

    Posted by Kim Brixton

    The Zac Brown Band responded to PETA'S letter asking them to consider what chickens go through from the time they are born until they reach the fryer.  Zac's people posted a message on TWITTER ---'Dear PETA: Pants are living creatures too.  Bacon had a mother but so did a pickle.  It takes life to support life.  Welcome to the planet.'  I don't get the sarcasm....BUT ZAC also wrote another TWEET indicating "Chicken is the new Tofu"....

    Don't get that one either....but each is entitled to their opinion(s)

  • Beer is Good

    Posted by Kim Brixton

    Researchers now say that beer can be good for your health because it contains dietary silicon, which is great for your bones.  IPA's and pale ales have the most silicon. 

    Arcadia Brewery in downtown Battle Creek has an excellent IPA.

    I think I know where I'm going for lunch today....

  • BEST TV COMMERCIAL

    Posted by Kim Brixton

    Sure there was a game yesterday that determined the Football Champions Of The World....but for the non-football fans, the TV commercials were a point of interest.

    While nothing REALLY GRABBED me, my favorite TV commercial during The Superbowl was one from a few years ago....

    Dolly Parton has announced the winners of the Dolly Cake Contest on her website.  The winning cake is pretty awesome!  

     

    Miranda Lambert has a pretty famous new fan.  He's Oscar winner Jamie Foxx.  The two met at a Grammy After Party when Foxx grabbed a microphone and rapped a few lines of 'White Liar'.  Jamie later told Miranda that he hoped he could write with her someday.  Where was Blake?

    WHOA!!

    TOMORROW IS GROUNDHOG DAY.

    PETA, PEOPLE FOR THE ETHICAL TREATMENT OF ANIMALS WANT TO REPLACE PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL WITH A ROBOT.

    A PETA SPOKESPERSON SAID THAT THE RODENTS BECOME STRESSED WHEN THEY ARE EXPOSED TO LARGE SCREAMING CROWDS, FLASHING LIGHTS AND HUMAN HANDLING. 

    I'LL BET IF YOU ASKED A GROUNDHOG, THEY WOULD SAY THEY LOVE THE ATTENTION.  THEY'RE JUST A LITTLE SHY, AND SLIGHTLY NERVOUS BECAUSE NOBODY PAYS ATTENTION TO THEM THE OTHER 364 DAYS OUT OF THE YEAR.

  • There's no FIGHTING in hockey?

    Posted by Kim Brixton

    We’re over the hump. We’re more than half way through winter. But the forecast calls for more cold and snow. What’s one to do during brutal winters in West Michigan? You could battle the elements and go play in the snow, or watch others, play…on ice.

    Kalamazoo boasts high caliber professional hockey that gives fans plenty of action before and after the ref’s blow their whistles. The K-Wings, in a new league this season,  have delivered the promise of fast paced, physical hockey. The ECHL is the leading professional development league for the NHL and AHL. Many of its players make the leap to the big leagues.

    The three games this past weekend had all the elements of great hockey. A total of 24 goals were netted. And if you snooze, you’ll lose out on all the fights. Roughing, tripping, hooking, slashing, boarding, fighting, holding, cross checking, unsportsmanlike conduct were just some of the penalties called.

    All that rough-housing, rather skilled hockey play, paid off for the K-Wings. Albeit, banged and bruised, they are now sitting pretty atop the ECHL’s North Division. The Cincinnati Cyclones blow into town this Saturday on golden ice. It’s one of several times this season the Wings Stadium staff are busy putting a color to the icy playing surface. The Halloween contest featured orange ice, Valentines will have pink ice, and on St. Patty’s Day, the beer will be flowing in the stands, while the players race back and forth on green ice.

    See for yourself; swift, precise athleticism on ice skates. Better yet, live vicariously when the gloves are off, and the fists fly. Really, what would hockey be without all the brawls?

    Putting things into perspective: Do spectators attend a NASCAR event for the thrill of watching cars at top speeds go round and round a few hundred times only to cross the finish line unscathed? Let’s face it, the controlled road rage sporting event is most exciting when the metal boxes on wheels crash and burn.

    The same rules apply when spectators flock to ice arenas across the country for hockey.


    Check out the action for yourself. I'll drop the puck for the Golden Ice Game against The Cyclones this Saturday....face-Off @ 7:30p.m.

  • MIRACLE IN HAITI

    Posted by Kim Brixton

    A 69 year-old woman was rescued after spending a week buried under a collapsed cathedral in earthquake ravaged Haiti.

    Anna Zizi, was singing as Mexican firefighters pulled her from the rubble.  Mrs. Zizi said she was praying the whole time.  Anna, I'm absolutely amazed by your EXTREME courage, strength and INCREDIBLE faith.  You are proof that miracles do happen.
