Thanks for reading my blog. Both of you. I hope you find some points of humor or entertainment in them, and if you don't, well...email me some! I am always looking for more. By the way, my boss just told me that I'm not sharing enough information about myself. He wants a bio. So, in the interest of any of your curiosity and for a little more job security, here I go:
Hobbies: Radio. Although I am seeking another to supplement.
What I Do In My Free Time: WHAT?
Favorite Foods: Pretty much anything that doesn't make the kitchen stink after it's cooked.
Favorite Singers/Bands: Coldplay, Jars of Clay, Hillsong, Train, Colbie Caillat, Sting, Eagles, Chicago.
Favorite Women: My two girls.
Favorite Men: My two boys.
Favorite TV shows: American Idol, Fringe, Burn Notice, Swamp People, Fox News, The NEW Two and a Half Men.
Favorite Movies: Romance, Sci-fi and comedy. The trifecta. (Yep, I like CHICK FLICKS...don't judge me.) Favs include Star Trek, You've Got Mail, While You Were Sleeping, Dumb and Dumber, Caddyshack, Rat Race, Blazing Saddles, Animal House, Airplane!
Political View: He said WHAT?
Religious View: If Jesus can save me, He can save anybody.
Favorite interview: It's a three way tie. Billy Preston, Kenny Loggins and James Taylor. Three of the nicest guys you could ever meet. The late Billy was the best in making me feel comfortable when I was a little nervous.
Favorite concerts: Billy Joel and Elton John. Maroon 5 and Train. Chicago's still got it, but I think the late Dan Fogelberg wins out in the "older school" category.
Favorite Quote: Phillipians 4:19: "But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Favorite job: This one! Love playing your favorite songs.
Someone once told me that working out is FUN!
Here's elyptical candid photo from my 14-year-old daughter.
So, what's a sweaty DJ to do?? Go to Jared and ask him...He just told me "eat fresh." What a company guy.
Hey, shouldn't we be judging a gumbo cook off or something??
OK, fellow O negative blood/universal donor types...they need us! (Actually they need ALL types).
Even though I'm not a fan of needles, I'm rolling up my sleeve tomorrow to help out United Blood Services. They need more blood during the holidays, so it's time to act! Hey, if I can do it, you can too. You can even make an appointment at your convenience. Here are their hours, location, phone number, and the online link to make an appointment:
Monday 8:30am to 4:00pm
Tuesday and Wednesday 10:30am to 6:00pm
Thursday 8:30am to 1:30pm (except Thanksgiving)
Friday 9:30am to 1:30pm
Saturday 8:00am to 12:00pm
Sunday 7:00am to 12:00pm
I'll be there tomorrow around 10:45 or so. You can call 225-769-7233 or visit www.UnitedBloodServices.org to make a convenient appointment to donate. Walk-ins are always welcome. The address is 8234 One Calais Avenue, Baton Rouge.
Didn't know if you knew (I didn't), only six percent of the population has O-negative blood, yet at hospital trauma centers, sometimes as much as 15 percent of the blood transfused is O-negative. LeaAnn Teague, Satellite Center Director United Blood Services says, “O negative blood can be given to anyone in an extreme emergency situation when there is no time to crossmatch the donor’s blood with the patient’s. When you do the math, our community needs people who are O-negative to give blood at least twice as often as everyone else!”
Another special need for O-negative blood is in the treatment of babies. Neonatal care facilities require fresh units of O-negative blood each day to treat their tiny patients. Good reasons all.
