Do You Like Your Job?

When I was a kid in high school one my first jobs was a busboy at Perry Boy's Smorgasbord in Salinas, California. You know, an all-you-can-eat joint, I lasted less than a week. I was lucky to get a gig working all night at KWYT-FM, which happened to be an automated "Beautiful Music" station.


I loved it and as they say the "rest is history." Are you happy where you work?






A job in Hollywood or the music industry might sound fun.  But would it really make you happy?  Don't think too hard, because apparently the answer is YES.


A new study surveyed people in a bunch of different industries to find out which jobs make us the happiest.  And three of the top five are GLAMOUR jobs that come with at least some level of fame.


The five jobs with the highest satisfaction rate are video game producer . . . film director . . . music producer . . . comedian . . . and neurosurgeon.


It seems like they should have put "successful" in front of a few of those though.  And since when have COMEDIANS been happy?


Unfortunately the five jobs that make us the most miserable are a lot more common:  Stock clerk . . . cashier . . . janitor . . . machine feeder at a factory . . . and telemarketer.


The study also looked at which states are most satisfied with their jobs overall.  The top five are Hawaii, Alaska, Wyoming, New Mexico, and West Virginia.


In last place is Massachusetts, followed by Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Oregon.

It's Going to be a Chilly Winter!

What's the weather going to be like this winter? Well if you're hoping for mild and warm, you may be disappointed in the weather outlook from Al Dutcher, State Climatologist with UNL. Farmers, businessmen and others interested in what we'll see this winter came to Dutcher's presentation at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. 
Al started out his presentation by reviewing how the weather has been so far this fall and winter, and compared it to last year. This year’s La Nina event is much stronger than last year and expected to last longer.
Many people have commented on the recent stretch of dry weather we've been seeing in our region of Nebraska as of late, but Dutcher explained we received almost all of our fall precipitation during the month of October. 
Al said the La Nina pattern will keep dry conditions south of Nebraska, which will continue to expand the  drought in those areas. 
Dutcher says when looking at the La Nina event that we are currently experie…

Flu Is Here

The flu has hit many families, schools, and businesses this winter with a nasty strain that has been deadly at times.  The nastiness that is the flu has even hit many of us here at the old radio ranch.  While there may not be a way to absolutely prevent you from getting flu, the CDC does offer some great tips on how to prevent it.  Good luck and stay healthy!
