Games People Play

Games People Play was a song recorded by Joe South, a good song, but were not gonna talk about songs, but talk about games.

Exactly the severity of the winter storm has yet to be established, it may cause you to be tied down to one location. 

If you get stuck at work, a crossword puzzle or word-search book may help you pass the hours. These can be fun and provide you solitude.

Stuck at home with friends, & neighbors? Well, a game of Scrabble or Monopoly could be the cure. In Scrabble trying to get rid of the letter tile of "Q","Z", or "X" can be frustrating. To get all three can be demoralizing. Should you get all three and use them maybe on a double word score, it can be fun. Ever play Scrabble for money? Penny a point gives the game a twist. A dollar a point give it an edge. Monopoly speaks for itself. The biggest argument is usually at the beginning of the game over who is going to use which token. It can take hours to get to a conclusion. A time limit is ideal way to declare a winner. Say after two hours, the game is over and players can count up their wealth, and a winner is decided.

Either way, you may have a little down time with the rain, ice, snow and wind.

By the way, for the latest weather developments keep your radio on KZ-100, or on-line at

Raising Children

Now this is a topic, I don't think there is a right way, or a wrong way. If you have just one child to raise or multiples, you would raise them somewhat differently. If the ages are spread a part, you again may raise them differently. Certainly if one child has special needs, you would raise them differently.
Then again, instilling basic fundamental steps is key.

Take the newly crowned Masters champion, Patrick Reed. He had his struggles growing up, like any child. Now let's fast-forward to his career as a professional golfer. Somewhere along the way he met his wife, who Mom & Dad dis not approve of. Reed playing the grandest golf tournament of all in his home state of Georgia had his wife by his side. His parents, no where to be seen. You see he has barred them from any tournament he plays.

This must be his way of "getting back" to the two who created him, brought him into this world. They raised him. Something went terribly wrong along the way.

Truth is, someda…

Are you a fubber?

Picked up on a new word today, FUBBER. Are you a fubber? What is fubber? Can I buy it at Wal-Mart, or Casey's? Is it available on Amazon? The answer to all those questions is hopefully, NO>

A fubber is a person. I'm sure you know one, are married to one, or work with one, or both. To be a FUBBER you are active scanning your cellphone, while in a conversation. As a person talks to you, you scroll through your messages or Facebook.

This denies the attention the person you're with deserves. It's rude, careless, and obnoxious.

Conclusion, don't be a FUBBER.  If someone is being a fubber to you, call them out on it. If what you're saying is important, grab the phone and keep it, until the conversation has concluded.

There's your tip of the day.
