Great visit from Mom-Mom!
My Mother-In-Law’s been in town for the last 10 days, visiting from Phoenix.   There are 2 reasons that Mom-Mom came to visit:  to see her Grandchildren  and …to see her grandchildren!  Seriously!  That’s perfectly fine, we KNOW she loves us too!  Wait, make that 3 reasons…our house is spotless now too…THANKS MOM!

I think we’ve shown Mom a great time during her visit.  Sarah and the kids took her to the Milwaukee County Zoo, then a pool day at Cool Waters and the last thing we did was Festa Italiana!  THAT was her favorite!

Festa Italiana was AMAZING!  We went on Friday night and HOLY RICEBALLS!  And lasagna sticks!  And zucchini sticks!  And eggplant sticks!  And calamari!  And CHOCOLATE CANNOLIS!  SOOOO many great foods to eat, music to hear, things and people to see…was a great experience!  Can’t wait for next year!

As always, THANK YOU for reading and for listening to 99.1 The Mix!  Hope you have a GREAT week!

4th Of July Weekend 2014...AWESOME!
4th Of July Weekend 2014 was one for the ages!  LOVED having my daughter and our adopted son Cameron (not really, but kinda) here for the fun!  Here’s how it went down:

Friday:  First Summerfest experience for the family and I and it didn’t disappoint!  Food, FUN, laughs, music and just a great time enjoying a MILWAUKEE SUMMER DAY…it FINALLY showed up!

Saturday:  Used bumpers and STILL got beat by a 3-year old, two 14-year olds, a 15-year old and my wife Sarah.  I’m NOT GOOD at bowling!

Sunday:  Spent the day in Lake Geneva and ya’ know…NO BIG DEAL… just drove a speedboat for the FIRST TIME EVER!   WHAT A RUSH!  Can’t wait to do it again!  Kids jumped off the boat and swam around for a bit and we just relaxed for a couple of hours…was PEACEFUL & AMAZING!
 
I hope you and yours had a GREAT holiday weekend as well! 

As always, thanks so much for reading and THANK YOU for listening to 99.1 The Mix!
 
Have a great week!

WHAT A WEEKEND!
If I had to pick JUST ONE WORD to describe this past weekend,   it’d be:  AMAZACRAZYAWESOME!   (I totally just made that word up)
Spent the weekend with the family at Key Lime Cove and WE HAD A BLAST!   Alyssa, Anthony, Ben and Cameron had the time of their lives on the water slides!  Sarah and I LITERALLY DID NOTHING on the lazy river, which I think is the idea when you’re on that LOL. 

Embarassing moment alert:  I fell asleep on my tube and some random kid cruisin’ down the river decided he’d flip me over (that’s HARD to do)...that was a fun way to wake up! 

It really was a GREAT family getaway…FUN & RELAXING!   Highly recommend!

As always, thank you for reading and thank you for listening to The Mix!

This Land is Your Land, This Land is Lego
Jeff Fieren's a photographer from Nova Scotia who's been known to dabble in dioramas using only Lego building blocks and other lego items. Seems like maybe he's got some spare time on his hands - maybe a lot of it. Check out his website. He's built dioramas of each of the 50 United States. Some are dead on: dancing girls in Nevada; folks attending a big football game in Alabama; and the Wright Brothers in North Carolina. But others will have you scratching your head: a merry-go-round and funnel cake stand for New Jersey; two guys on swings for Ohio; and a roadway sign saying "Welcome to Delaware" immediately followed by one saying "Thanks for visiting." Come on, guys. We all know that's a Rhode Island joke.

Ed Sheeran, Wedding Singer
Did you catch this one? A radio station in Sydney, Australia had already arranged an $80,000 dream wedding for a local couple after the unemployed groom wrote to talk about their need to postpone their wedding due to personal and financial hardship. Everything taken care of, down to the last detail. So when a somewhat familiar wedding singer showed up, no one should have been surprised, right? Surprised they were when Ed Sheeran walked in, strapped on his guitar and played "Thinking Out Loud," the song the couple had chosen for their first dance. Nicely done. And it's good to know Ed's got something to fall back on in case this recording thing falls through...     Just surprised this lovely couples first dance.

Kourtney K, Trail Blazer
The Kardashians are frequently known for taking what others do and trying to top it. This newest one has me scratching my head though. You've heard of breastfeeding selfies, right? Giselle Bunchchen started the trend, posting pictures of herself feeding her children. And Alyssa Milano has kept the trend alive. They're called "brelfies." Now, Kourtney is posting pictures of her using breast pumps to express her breast milk to feed her child later. So what do we call these types of pictures? Pumpies?   After the show it's the after party. A photo posted by Kourtney Kardashian (@kourtneykardash) on Mar 21, 2015 at 6:39pm PDT

That's Some Expensive Texting
The general manager of the NFL's Cleveland Browns has been suspended for four games without pay and fined $250,000. Why? For texting to on-field personnel during games. That's a serious wrist slap right there. A lot tougher than the NFL's former "Give Me That Phone You'll Get It Back At The End of The Game" policy...

Available at No Stores Anywhere
James Corden's been in the late slot after Letterman for about a week now. And he's making a bit of a splash. This week, he had soccer star David Beckham as a guest on The Late Late Show, and they took the opportunity to debut a new clothing line. A new underclothing line, to be precise. You'd think more people would be taking shots at The Biebs and his Calvin Klein ads...

Stephen King on Indiana
Despite being a guy who chooses to write books that are over 1000 pages long, Stephen King can be short, sweet and to the point at times. Take for instance his reaction to Indiana's controversial new Religious Freedom Restoration Act. He's not a fan, and he puts it in a very simple light. No novel, no novella, not even a short story needed here. Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration act is gay discrimination, pure and simple. You can frost a dog turd, but it's still a dog turd. — Stephen King (@StephenKing) March 31, 2015

Bieber's Roast Airs
It seems like the roast that would never end, but the Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber finally aired last night. The folks at ABC News provide a two-minute summary on this morning's "The Skinny." Check it out for a clean breakdown of the show. If you believe the clips, it looks like the Biebs had some of the best lines of the night.

Meet the New Daily Show Host
Comedy Central announced yesterday the replacement for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show. Just as everyone expected, the new host is... Trevor Noah? Um, sorry, who? Trevor's relatively new to The Daily Show. Heck, he's relatively new to the US, having arrived at both spots back in December - four months ago - from his native South Africa. In fact, back then, he made his debut appearance on The Daily Show as a correspondent. Now, suddenly, he's the new host. As others scramble to find out more about him, why not just sit back and watch that debut..

Oh No He Didn't...
Justin Bieber took the stage as a back-up singer with Ariana Grande in Miami over the weekend. His job: help her with "Love Me Harder." And he couldn't do it. He flubbed the lines, then gave up and started dancing on stage and greeting fans to cover for his failed memory. He apologized repeatedly to Ariana on stage.. And he did so on Instagram afterwards as well. Accepted or not, I'll bet it's the last time he's invited to be Ariana's back-up...     Had fun with u Ariana, even tho I forgot all the words haha A photo posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on Mar 28, 2015 at 8:46pm PDT

The Beginning of The New World
Jay Z enlisted some top-level friends to help him announce his new streaming music service, Tidal. Beyonce was there, of course, and Kanye. But so was Madonna, and Nicki Minaj, and Jason Aldean, and Chris Martin, and more. Dozens of artists, in the room and on-line, to hear about and lend support to Jay Z's game changing idea. His plan is to get consumers to pay for music they're used to streaming for free. You laugh, but it worked for Netflix. The man could really be on to something big here...
