Library

The topic of the library comes up quite a few times a week in my life.  In grade school once a week the class would go to the library and learn about everything the library had to offer, we had to learn the Dewey Decimal System, a teacher had to approve a book we picked to check out for the week and sometimes we had to work on research topics.  I hated the days we went to the library, what a boring place and the books I checked out were too boring to read, however in college things changed.  I discovered the library does have the fun fiction books I like to read and because I think books are expensive and I read them quickly the library became my addiction.

TV Shows

televisionI used to have more time to watch television but the last 3 years my viewing time has become very limited.  I try to watch a few shows that I have been watching for years but am now finding I have to get the DVDs of the last season to catch up on what I have missed.  I am currently working my way through season 3 and 4 of “Rizzoli & Isles” as I’m trying to watch the current season on Tuesday evenings.  I also enjoy “Major Crimes” and I’m waiting for “Franklin and Bash” to start its new season.  I just realized that “Cedar Cove” started this past weekend and I missed it, now I need to figure out how to see the episode I missed.  Thankfully “Deadliest Catch” is easy to watch On Demand when it is convenient.

When to Complain?

tire

Yesterday I took my car to get new tires. I only went to the location I did because it was the best price we could find at the time. When I arrived the guy at the counter told me it would take over an hour because the computers were down and they were trying to do everything by hand. He asked me what year my car was and asked me for the keys and I told him I would be at the table waiting for my car. About an hour later he came out and handed me my keys and an envelope and told me my car was finished. I walked out the door and got into my car, Continue reading

Movie Review – “America”

flagYesterday afternoon I made time to see Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie “America: Imagine the World Without Her“.  I invited my daughter to go with me and I have to say that thankfully our internet was not working correctly and she decided to go to the movie with me.  I made my kids go to Dinesh D’Souza’s first movie “2016: Obama’s America” and I’m glad I did because hearing about Obama from someone else besides me showed them that it’s not just me being biased against a Democrat.

Listener Feedback

Microphone

We love when listeners send feedback, ask questions and even when the heckle us – it’s all part of the fun of being on the radio. Today we received an interesting email:

Comment: I listen to your show every morning.  This morning you had a lady on from the Weld County Humane Society.  She said they were swamped with kittens and dogs and cats.  Tell me,  Weld County is debt free, why don’t they give some funding to the Humane Society to decrease the price of adopting these animals.  I don’t know anyone who will or can pay over a hundred dollars per animal.  This is insane.  I know it includes spay and neutering and shots, but not many seniors could afford this and many would love to adopt………What say you?

First off, we want to say thank you for listening, you have options in the morning and we appreciate you tuning us in.

This question presents an interesting dilemma: the Weld Humane Society is a 501 c3, they are a non-profit organization; the Weld County government is the only county or parish in the United States that has zero debt, why can’t the government provide a little assistance to defer the cost of pet ownership?
