On today’s edition of Tech Thursday we take a look at a site that is musical and addicting. If there is one site you should be wasting your time on, this is one of them. Have fun and don’t be alarmed at the tabs on my web browser in the video. I was doing some research for a new project in class. Cheers!

Crazy things happened to us throughout our lives. People come and go but it’s the conversations that last a lifetime. This past Tuesday I had a conversation with my team, and a couple officers. The conversation was hilarious and it involved a time when I had gone to the Old Country Buffett with my wife and our friends. We had been there for a while and of course, I had to use the restroom. So I got up and went for it. I usually try to wait until I get home because public restrooms suck but I couldn’t wait.
I walked by snotty kids who were running around. They were obviously annoying others while they ate their dinner. I laughed and made my way to the restroom. I chose a stall and sat down. Now, I know this is getting personal and possibly gross but it’s funny. I’m sure everyone has had a moment of stage fright when someone else enters the bathroom and I’m no different. I sat awkwardly waiting for the person to leave, but instead I heard a familiar voice.
“Hey bro, you need a poop buddy?”
I busted up laughing. My friend did the same and sat in the next stall. The story was short. The story was funny and I shared it with my co-workers. We laughed and had a moment that I will remember for the rest of my life. I will remember this because one of my co-workers who took part in the laughter recently passed away. It’s a shock and out of no where. But I will remember him through this story and his laughter.
On a personal note…I will miss you bro. It’s crazy to think that you’re gone. We were just laughing and joking this past Tuesday. We even talked about you taking over my shift and I expected to see you this morning for coffee and more stories filled with laughter. It’s just surreal bro. I’m trying to stay strong and fight back my tears as I type this but it’s hard. Since I started working here we’ve been cool. We hung out with our group many times and it was always fun. Monday Night Football (MNF) isn’t going to be the same without you. I don’t know that I will be able to have a Stella without thinking about the Stella glasses that we would use during MNF. It’s going to be hard brother but we will manage as we always do. Thanks for always laughing and joking, thanks for being you my friend. For the rest of my life I will live by a quote you posted within the last couple weeks,
Life is short, Live it. Love is rare, Grab it. Anger is bad, Dump it. Fear is awful, Face it. Memories are sweet, Cherish it.
That’s exactly what I’m going to do sir.Post Views: 433

Good evening! Last week was rather busy with my root canal, 22 hour drive to Florida and graduation. I’m very happy to say that my family and I made it through everything with no problems, but last weeks episode had to be postponed. I’m still on vacation in Florida and just yesterday I had the privilege of attending the 4th Annual Mini-C conference in Boca Raton. I was initially invited by Tom of The Cool Kids of 9-1-1. He and I had been talking about promoting each others work and he mentioned this conference. It was promoted on Jabber Log and afterward he said it was too bad that Whitney and I couldn’t be there during the conference. Well, it just so happened that I was going to be in Florida so I attended and recorded four great episodes.
This episode features Al, a 12 year volunteer with Boca Raton 9-1-1. He recently turned 95 years old and had much to say about 9-1-1. It was a great conversation!
Episode topics –
- How Al became a volunteer
- The need for more 9-1-1 public education
- The need for more 9-1-1 training for dispatchers
And much more!
As always you can email the show at email@example.com and make sure to listen, share and visit The Cool Kids of 9-1-1 for more on the Mini-C!Post Views: 269

For the past 45 minutes my family and I have been watching intro’s to the Saturday morning cartoons I watched when I was growing up. I think my wife was the first one to talk about the Gummi Bears and we went from there. We sang what we could remember from the theme song and then I went to YouTube to find the intro. After watching it and seeing the look on my 7 year olds face I had to play more. I felt like a little kid again watching these intro’s and it took me back. I remember waking up early as all hell with my little brother, before my sisters were born of course, and getting a box of cereal and a gallon of milk and turning on the tube to watch some cartoons. I remember we would destroy the box of Honey Combs, Pacman, Captain Crunch or Smurf cereal and almost the entire gallon of milk. If we didn’t want cereal we would snag a box of honey grahams or Oreo’s and we were set for the morning. Did my parents care? Hell no! They got to sleep in and now that I’m a parent I understand that sleep is a lot better. This is especially true now because the Saturday morning cartoons blow!
I have been up a few times and watched cartoons with my boy and it’s not the same. They have revamped Sonic the Hedgehog and the bad guy who looks exactly like Dr. Robotnik is actually named Dr. Eggman. At first I was baffled and told Logan this was not Dr. Eggman, it was Robotnik and a few weeks later he schooled me on it.
“Hey dad, you remember Dr. Eggman?”
“Umm…you mean Robotnik?”
“Uh…yeah well it’s not Robotnik. You want to know why?”
“Sure buddy, tell me what you know.”
“Well, last week on the show they said that Robotnik is Eggman’s grandfather. So…”
Yep! That’s right, I got schooled by my kid. It’s all good though, at least he knows about Robotnik…umm let’s move on shall we. They also have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but they’re many many years into the future and it’s just odd. Dragon Ball Z is still cool but everything else blows! Bring back The Gummi Bears, Shirt Tales, Ducktales, Darkwing Duck, Talespin, The Wuzzles, Snorks, Muppet Babies, Heathcliff, and all the other badass cartoons that I had growing up. Bring back the early Nickelodeon which was actually Pinwheel. After morning cartoons on Saturday it was on to Pinwheel where one could watch Mr. Wizard and You Can’t Do That On Television. Then when I got a little older and Pinwheel turned into Nickelodeon we had Snick on Saturday nights where one could watch “Are You Afraid of The Dark?”
I could go on and on and on but there are way too many to mention here. If I did I would have to dip into the Disney Channel with Kids Incorporated and Good Morning Ms. Bliss, which turned into an NBC hit and renamed “Saved By The Bell”. Anyway, I just wanted to write about this since we spent so much time looking at video’s on all these cartoons. We had the golden age of Saturday morning cartoons and now our kids have crap. I believe there is a channel called Boomerang that has all the old shows but it’s not the same. If anyone can remember any other cartoons let me know! Cheers!Post Views: 5,644
