When the Beatles invaded North America in ’64 The Jury who were in our early 20’s were already one of the older Winnipeg bands. Simply by changing singers we managed to go from the Elvis era with Donny Burns to the British era with Bruce Walker. After making that move we were soon cutting our own records instead of just listening to them. By being one of the older groups we kinda lucked out because we just missed the drug era which wasn’t so true of some of the younger groups. Our drug of choice at the time was booze which may have caused us to misbehave a little ( a lot) but we’re all still alive. I only mention this now because I belong to a Facebook group called Manitoba Music Museum. This is a very cool site for me because it displays pictures and stories of all the old groups I used to play with back in the day. Unfortunately as I read it now I’m now starting to notice a lot of the younger than us groups are already missing a couple of members. The Jury miraculously are all still alive and probably still drinkin’ (the stories and incidents about how we managed to survive all that come shortly after the passing of my children.) I of course being much wiser now have switched from the hard stuff like CC, to a nice “Red” that gives good nose.
With the economy sucking and unemployment as high as it is not many people are stupid enough to ask for a raise. Most of them are just happy enough having a job but in spite of this Obama gives all federal employees a raise. Are you kidding me, these are the same people who actually enjoy telling you no when you need their help. They also have the worst attitudes along with the best benefits you have ever seen. I think they would all starve to death if they had to live off of tips. It’s kinda the same way the Government in Canada figures out how to take care of the French folks with similar attitudes.
There is no such thing as a quiet drunk.
Falling in love is the best and worse thing that will ever happen to you.
There are a couple of different types of people in the world … People who make promises and those who keep them.
The thing of it is I think I actually prefer being the “other guy” When I’m ” the guy” I waste too much time and jealous emotion wondering if there is another guy. I don’t share! When I’m the “other guy” I know who “the guy” is and I don’t mind at all sharing his girl. I know I know, make an appointment with a shrink!
Love doesn’t have to be perfect it just needs to be true.
It’s what you don’t do on your Radio Station that makes it sound good.
The only thing you can count on when things get really bad is they probably could get a lot worse
Is a Zebra black with white stripes or white with black stripes? They of course are black.
I never realized before that most of the Cubans who live in America dislike the Cubans who live in Cuba.
Tim Moore reminded me that former coach of the Buffalo Bills Marv Levy once said, the reason Hitler lost the war was because he couldn’t win on the road. I love football analogies!
Thomas Jefferson said … Peace Is That Glorious Moment When Everybody Is Standing Around Reloading!
I think all Lawyers should be investigated, but seeing as most politicians are Lawyers … Ain’t gonna happen!
I’ve been a Grandfather for 8 years now and I think both my Daughters are wondering when I’m going to start acting like it.
Many years ago my Lawyer said to me … George can’t you just fool around, do you have any idea what this is going to cost you.
So nobody goes into the Baseball Hall Of Fame this year. I guess it is true you have to be a great player and also a good human being. Seems nobody qualified!
I think real Radio should do the same as Satellite Radio and count how many receivers we have out there as part of our sell. Hell there has got to be 3 or 4 per household which kills Sirius and puts their game into perspective.
In a recent Blog I mentioned that Women fantasize about Men they don’t know. Several Women e mailed me that I was wrong because they claim to fantasize about me all the time. I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with that information but I’m sure thinking about it!
I know very few Men who are looking for Wives but I sure know a lotta Women who seem to be looking for Husbands.
I think one of the scariest things that could ever be said to you with a loud voice which always congers up a few things the speaker may be talking about is … I NEED TO TALK TO YOU!
When in doubt about whether a legendary story is true or not, always go with “The Legend”
