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.

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??
With the Baton Rouge St. Patrick's Day Parade rolling on Saturday, I just realized that I'm WAY behind in my preparation. So, in order to put my to become a bit more Irish in a more timely fashion, I had to enlist some help. Enter one of my friends, Joe Comeaux from New Orleans. He's giving me some quick assistance to reach my goal, although I'm pretty sure that "Comeaux" is not an Irish name. But, no matter. He did have some good luck in finding some answers online. So I'm sharing...
HOW TO SEEM MORE IRISH (From AskMen.com)
Adopt an Irish brogue: The surest way of passing yourself off as a genuine Son of Erin is to adopt an Irish brogue, or accent. Brogue originally referred to a type of coarse leather shoe, and since to most observers, the Irish sound as though they're struggling to talk with cheap footwear lodged in their mouths, it makes sense that the word would come to mean an Irish accent.
Wear a little green or orange. . . but never together: Although most Irishmen aren't particularly fashion conscious, they do have very strong feelings when it comes to the colors green and orange. That's because orange has come to represent the Protestant Church while green has come to represent the Catholic Church. In the interest of not offending either party, it's best not to mix the two colors in a single outfit.
Learn to tell a tall tale: The Irish are born with an innate ability to regale audiences with a tall tale. Although this God-given gift o' gab runs the gamut from amusing anecdotes to far-flung fairy tales, the stories themselves are always told with humor, conviction and just a wee bit of exaggeration.
Use Some Colorful Language: Many words that are deemed deeply offensive in America are thrown about freely in Ireland to spice up conversations, enliven stories or to simply greet one's mother. So, chances are, if you start cussing like a sailor on shore leave and you'll be guaranteed to fit right in. Just don't do this in front of the HR manager. Unless they're Irish.
Make fun of the Scottish: It has been said that proximity breeds contempt, which is probably why the Irish delight in making jokes at the expensive of their Scottish neighbors.
Learn a blessing or two: Whether Catholic or Protestant, the Irish are a deeply religious people who spew blessings at the same rate that some folks exhale.
Get a severe sunburn: Perhaps it's the nature of living on one of the planet's largest bogs, but Irishmen rarely seem to get a decent tan. In fact, many of Erin's sons have been known to get a third-degree burn simply from sitting next to a fluorescent light bulb. You too can appear to be Irish by adding some of your girlfriend's rouge to your cheeks neck and forehead. While you're at it, borrow her eyebrow pencil to generously apply freckles all over your crimson red mug. REALLY?
