Community Involvement

August 26, 2014

This is the most caring community I’ve ever know. We hear about a child who is sick, someone inevitably puts together a fundraiser. We need to build a homeless shelter, the community pulls together to make it happen. We have literally thousands of non-profit groups between Grass Valley and Nevada City doing good for others…. read more

Back To The FM Tomorrow

August 26, 2014

For those who may have noticed (all three of you), I’ve been absent from the Morning Buzz for the past couple of days. This was due to the fact that I have been filling in for Tom Fitzsimmons, on our sister station, while he’s been away on vacation. Thanks to Eric Gould for getting down… read more

August 25, 2014

I read an article today about some very smart boys at North Carolina State University who are working on a nail polish that will detect the date rape drug in drinks by discreetly dipping their finger in their drinks to test them. These boys are brilliant and were raised right! Check out the story with… read more

I Can Shower Again!

August 25, 2014

My weekend was interesting. It began Friday night with my daughter and I completing the Ice Bucket Challenge for A.L.S. Thanks again to Deana for that; it was actually quite refreshing. I just might start dumping a bucket of cold water over my head every Friday night, until Winter of course. Saturday, the drains in… read more

Ice Bucket Double Whammy!

August 22, 2014

I got tagged! The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Ice Bucket Challenge was issued to me last night by my morning show co-host (and former friend) Deana Martinez. Yesterday my 12-year-old daughter London was challenged by a classmate. So, at some point today before the 24 hour time period expires, the two of us will handle our… read more

I Was Called Out

August 21, 2014

I was scrolling through my facebook page last night and came across this young guy who was called out to do the ice bucket challenge.

Trying Out Healthier Living

August 20, 2014

So in the last 4 years, I have had my gallbladder removed, gone through a divorce, started smoking again (after quitting for 10 years) quit again and gained probably 40 lbs. in the process.  I feel like a slug, I have no energy at all- and really would like to get healthy again. I’m not… read more

One Of My Best Days

August 18, 2014

As I knelt over my bbq preparing burgers in China Cove (at Donner Lake) on Sunday, I watched my wife and daughter as they floated on rafts, splashing and laughing and enjoying the summer sun. I thought to myself how grateful I am that I have two such beautiful, pleasant people in my life to… read more

Adventure Time!

August 14, 2014

If you’ve been tuned into the morning show regularly, you’ve probably heard me talking to Deana about how I have virtually spent no time outdoors locally this summer. Well that changes tomorrow.

Yea…That Was The School Bell.

August 13, 2014

Far fewer snooze buttons were fondled this morning as many of our area schools welcomed staff and students back for another year of  self-discovery and drama…and perhaps some academics. Lockers are creaking for the first time in weeks today, as schedules are being finalized and instructors are being labeled. It’s a big year for some…. read more

Thank God for Second Chances!

August 12, 2014

I’m dating a nice guy. He is very sweet. He pursued me in high school and somehow (and I really can’t see why now) he was friend-zoned. He became my best friend. Talking me off the ledges, driving me back and forth from the airport when I was living out of the state…. We went on… read more

Depression has claimed another high profile human being this week. Beloved actor Robin Williams used a belt to take his own life Monday afternoon at his home in Tiburon, California.

Robin Williams

August 11, 2014

I saw an article about the death of an actor from another era that I’d never heard of the other day, and I thought, “How weird will it be when legends from our era begin to die off?”   I never expected it to begin so soon…. I remember Robin Williams in my youngest days… read more

What A Fair!

August 11, 2014

Today’s morning  show was our first back following the 2014 Nevada County Fair…and I was pretty spent. Three days, and more than 13 hours at this year’s fair, proved to be more than enough for me. Saturday afternoon I took my family to the fair. My wife spent more than six hours assisting us in… read more

Visions of New Games for Kids’ Day

August 8, 2014

I hosted the Kids’ Games at the Nevada County Fair yesterday for the millionth time and had an epiphany as I watched the small kids struggle with game clearly meant for older kids-and the faces of the bored parents who’ve been good sports and brought their kids year after year for the SAME OLD games…….. read more
