    Apparently consuming alcohol is the primary social activity of Charlotte’s young people

      It could be worse.

      Hey, where is the ‘Countess’ ? You know, your ‘Better -half’ .
      I kinda liked the ‘Softer side’ of SRG : )


      • Fred Stiening says:

        Me too!

        She was extremely busy the past two weeks or so. She is sitting next to me, now permanently ensconced in the SRGuide castle, although we still have some loose ends to finish up

      • Fred Stiening says:

        I figure the best hiding place is out in plain sight. Hoffa was probably put inside a Ronald McDonald statue on Woodward Avenue

        Today, we are cleaning out the moat under the drawbridge so the dragons will be comfortable. When your fire breathing dragons are not happy, nobody is happy.

    FCC report on robocalling

    The core of what the industry has proposed is an authentication method to ensure thst calls placed over VoIP are real phone numbers – not necessarily a “real” phone, but that the phone number is connected to a specific person or organization that can be held accountable fir illegal acts, or reliably blocked by caller ID

    To all you Trump fans, Happy May Day to you and your Russian comrades

  4. Parrott says:

    So is the FCC going to do something about Stephan Colbert for running his mouth saying that President Trump “mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.” ? I think he called him a ‘prick’ too.
    Can he get by with that ? I thought there were FCC rules regarding vulgarity? Its not pay tv channels.
    Now if the ‘retard Colbert’ had said it against the ‘obo’ , CBS would have fired him in a New york minute.
    And my apologies to the ‘Countess’ for the vulgar language.
    The Local CBS station won’t accept email comments. They only do Social media, zuckerbergs ‘dorkbook’. I am not on that tripe.
    So I guess I will just see who the ( beep) is advertising on colberts gutter-show and send them an email. Just like they did O’reilly.

    One of my Favorite survey questions:
    Where do you think Jimmy Hoffa is buried ?

    1) Under runway 270R at O’Hare airport.
    2) Giants Stadium
    3) Grants Tomb ( best one)


    • TheChairman says:

      Parrot: I can show you a probable location. Back in January 2013, a key figure broke his silence, but the story was suppressed. He stated Hoffa’s body never left the state, and was to be taken to Rogers City, MI… which happens to be near where we live in the summer (we’re hitting the road today from AZ).

      Well, exactly 1 week after his leak, there was a suspicious fire in a building in Rogers City. There was one tenant living in the building (apartments above the commercial spaces). She got a knock on her door and was told “there is going to be a fire.” Interestingly, nobody knows where she went.

      The firefighters took 5+ hours to control it (accelerants?), and the masonry building was gutted. Video of fire is on Youtube. It is now just an empty lot with tree saplings, as the building was razed. The city is also adjacent to the largest limestone (calcite) quarry in the world, which has various ‘uses’.

      • Parrott says:

        Hi Chairman: I looked at satellite image of the quarry at Rogers city. That thing is Huge!
        How long have they been digging there ? Wasn’t there Railroads to the quarry to service them as well ?
        That’s wild about Hoffa,
        Have a safe trip with your AS ! On the road is such a blast.
        The smell of diesel. In touch with americana at the Truck stop.
        They don’t call it ‘Love’s’ for nothing !
        Trash talk on the CB radio. Its cool to stop and take a break. Go back to the AS, have a quick pimento cheese & a Dr. pepper, and i can make the state.
        Safe travels Chairman,


        • TheChairman says:

          Thanks Parrot. We arrived rattled and frazzled. The I-76 & I-80 route via Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, and Wisconsin was harsh… lots of washboard road surface with seesawing on the hitch. Best route seems to be I-70, US-54, and I-40.

          Thank goodness for Love’s!!

  6. Parrott says:

    Any Buck Sexton links that are NOT iheart-sux-radio links ? before 9pm eastern standard time ?

    Marriage Tip Fred:
    ( no charge)

    Hogan’s Heroes 10 pm, ME TV. You can get it over the air somewhere in C-Town.
    You all will laugh and laugh, its good


  7. haiti222 says:

    Rodgers City is really cool. Here is some info on both their internal railroad and the Detroit and Mackinac that used to serve it until 1984.

  8. Parrott says:

    Glad you had a safe trip. Thats interesting Chairman, speaking of lake freighters, I watch for the Arthur M. Anderson. Its kinda famous ship. I use that marinewatch. It shows up at Rogers City from time to time.
    I like watching the ships. Supposedly you can win a trip on one .I have read,

  9. Parrott says:

    well I am finally studying for the amateur radio license. I hope to pass this in the summer sometime. Since they are taking AM radio away. I have stopped and started I don’t know how many times,
    see how this goes. You don’t use ‘handles’ on the Ham radio, bummer.

  12. So, All Access reports Brian Wilson has left WMAL where he’d been doing mornings. Not long ago Mary Walter came on board as co-host. Could be Cumulus cost cutting. Wonder if they’ll put Larry O’Connor with Walter and bring back Savage in afternoon drive.

    • Parrott says:

      Interesting. Mary is ‘OK’ . They said Mary is out sick the last two days.
      Chris Plante has been on fire the last couple weeks. My parents like him when he shows up with Lou Dobbs. I wonder if he will be getting his own TV show?

      Savage is out there sometimes. Larry had one hour 5-6 pm before they gave him the three hours. I’ve switched to Tom Sullivan in the afternoon, over on Fox from 4-6 .
      Cumulus has made a mess of many things.

    • Parrott says:

      Hey Jersey Devil: Have you seen anything else about WMAL & the new guy with Mary , so far this week ? Its that guy ‘Kevin’ again. He showed up since they got rid of Larry. I guess this guy will be regular.

  13. Parrott says:

    I really like that Poll about what’s in heaven, Fred.

    • Fred Stiening says:

      Do you think heaven has angles or is everything circular?

      • Parrott says:

        I could not resist on selecting ‘ Angles’ .
        Hilarious, so I chose it. : )
        Now I was serious about Trains. Lets say good ole 1950’s- 1960’s freight and mixed. Named passenger trains.
        Not metro/commuter bullsh(* .
        Powhatan Arrow, George Washington, Phoebe Snow, Super Chief,
        Crescent, even some canadian ones.
        Well not 1960’s passenger trains, they were starting to get wonky then.
        Steam or first gen diesel and some second gen diesel.
        maybe some of those electric interurban ones, from back in the thirties.
        That would be nice. and I can eat Doritos.

  14. Parrott says:

    Hey, I found Gary Nolan. I heard him 21 years ago on the USA radio network.
    He is now on KSSZ FM, looks like the transmitter is halfway between Fayette, MO and Columbia, MO.
    The map shows it throws a signal all the way up to Moberly MO. Interestingly Moberly is an important division point, where the original east -west main from KC, of the Wabash RR split, with the main headed east to Hannibal, MO to cross the Mississippi river, & continue to headquarters in Decatur IL and onto Detroit. The passenger main heads southeasterly towards St. Louis. Both tracks are still in use by Norfolk Southern and are being upgraded to positive train control.

  15. Has the New York Times disclosed that they received the Manchester photos from U.S. intelligence sources? Or are we just supposed to believe that no New York Times reporter could have a source in the British government?

  16. Parrott says:

    And then you have the Giant Rubber duck in Canada.. ” TORONTO – An Ontario government grant of about $120,000 that is going toward a giant rubber duck for Canada 150 celebrations ”
    That is funny The duck is like six stories tall , here is the story link on CFMJ.

    waste of money? Hell, it’s not welfare. at least you have a giant duck to show for the cash.

  17. Parrott says:

    Fred: Have you started smoking a pipe and subscribing to the Charlotte observer paper yet? Now that your are marriage bliss : )
    I am going to order some of those ‘greenish’ hue cigars like Colonel Klink has on Hogan’s Hero’s. I am liking those ‘Romeo Y’ Julieta ‘ cigars,
    best to you and the Countess

    • Fred Stiening says:

      No and no.

      As much the Countess loves the newspaper business, even she cannot stomach the Charlotte Observer.

      Despite her concerns, I kind of enjoy her second hand cigarette smoke. It helps me remember the days when I knew I was free.
