Gone to the Dogs – MDW258

This podcast has gone to the dogs! Just a little update and some reminiscing with Dog-related songs from the old Podsafe Music Network

I update a little about our New (to us) RV and our dogs Percy and Benny (Beagles). I also talk about the Cherry Festival Airshow with the USAF Thunderbirds and the 4th of July fireworks from the Campground in Benzonia Michigan.

I played:

Long Time no Podcast! – mdw257

I talk about what’s been going on since winter around here. New cars, New camper, some podcasting stuff and the fact that I’m now the District 7 Michigan Emergency Coordinator for Ham Radio.

I played a song from the Old School Podsafe Music Network by David Ipolito (That Guitar Man in Central Park) called “He’s Just Mean”.


Until next time….

Why Total a Perfectly Good Car? – MDW254

I had a little adventure with my Wife’s car a while back and put some small dents and scratches in it. We had full coverage insurance on the car so the insurance company decided to total it. Doesn’t make any sense to me so I bought it back from the insurance company.

I talk about my way of buying and owning cars which is a bit different then the normal I suppose. πŸ™‚

This episode is both Episode 61 of Geek of the North and Episode 254 of Mike Dell’s World Podcast.

Things I Don’t Understand – MDW250

– Why would it be important to have the engine size or the type of transmission or whatever on your vehicle’s outside? For that matter, other than pimping the auto manufacturer why would you even want their logo on your car?

– Left Lane driving on the freeway. My take on it.

– Why is it when people sports teams when they say “we won!”? Wouldn’t be that “They” won? The Team in question. YOU just watched them win. Republicans and Democrats are like sports teams to people. They root for the Dems or the GOP and no matter what they do or say, it’s ok with them. Instead of thinking about the issue at hand, they just blindly follow. Also, it seems if anyone says anything bad about the other side, it’s believed when it’s likely not true.

– Why does the USAF want to get rid of the A-10 ? If I were in charge of the military, I would change things up a LOT!

Good News, Bad News Update – MDW249

Some good news, some bad news (very bad news) in this episode.

Life is getting back to “normal” but it’s been a rough few weeks when it comes to dogs. We lost our 4 year old beagle Banjo to an injury that couldn’t be fixed. Then we got a new Puppy (Benny) who is a handful but very cool.

I will be presenting at the Podcast Awards on Sunday June 26th at 8pm. If you want to watch live, it will be at
