Remember "Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous" with Robin Leach? Caviar dreams and champagne wishes? Celebrity mega-mansions that were examples of pure excess. Well, there's a "mega-cabin" on Lake Superior that gives them a run for their money; literally.
Olde Peninsula Brewpub & Restaurant turned 21 today and we celebrated as we always do with the annual Rocker Morning Show Breakfast Broadcast. This, of course, a pivotal birthday for O.P. because now they're old enough to drink and we certainly did a lot of that.
With Spring arriving next week, it's not too early to start planning your in-state vaca; your stay-cation; whatever you want to call it. Michigan is a destination for the rest of the country and the world for that matter. Why not explore the possibilities ourselves.
Remember a few years ago when there was talk of building an arena in those empty parking lots West of downtown Kalamazoo? Turned out it wasn't feasible due in part to the fact that a larger, centralized arena wasn't necessary to accommodate all the fans that couldn't get into events that were always sold out. Then there was the "If you build it, they will come" theory that was supposed to revitalize the entire downtown. Sure, it's worked in other cities but I don't think it would work here.
The Rocker and Paragon Auto Sales In Portage present the first "You Pick The Trip" of 2017!!! Get out of town and pick where you want to go. You can choose to fly to any U.S. city where a Major League Baseball game is played between May 3rd and May 23rd. Catch a game at an iconic stadium or how about the Tigers in L.A., Phoenix or the Bay Area.
Somebody from another part of the country brought to my attention the other day that we Michiganders make a sound when we have to get past someone or accidentally bump into someone other than saying 'excuse me.' Or when something bad or awkward happens. See if you've found yourself saying the word "ope". That's right "ope".
Ok...So...I figured by now everybody has had a chance to get used to the new roundabouts that we use on a regular basis. For me, the 2 on Sprinkle Rd and I94 are my most traveled. Then there's the one at Miham and 12th in Portage. Maybe it's just me but I think people should've figured them out by now. But in case you or someone you know hasn't, here are some basis common sense rules to follow...
It never ceases to amaze me how sensitive so many have become. Political correctness has given way to outright outrage at every little thing. A vast majority of otherwise normal human beings have taken to whining and complaining for the sake of whining and complaining.
As I've mentioned often, some of my best friends are in law enforcement and one of them was part of the K9 unit. I came to learn not only how hard it is to be successful with a dog as a partner but also how unconditionally courageous the dogs are. As one officer put it: "There's no hesitation on the dogs part when confronting danger. It's so unbelievable to see". In addition, these canines can do things that humans can't and that goes a long way to improving enforcement.
