TUESDAY morning a little after 8, Rob will take caller 102 who will read back the ONE DIRECTION PLAYLIST IN ORDER, and WIN A BILLS JERSEY AUTOGRAPHED BY ONE DIRECTION and TICKETS TO SEE 'EM AT THE RALPH ON THURSDAY! Just 5 hours of listening is all it takes to win! The first One Direction song in the playlist could go as early as 6am Monday Morning! Good Luck!

It was kind of a weird week off. Didn't go anywhere, unless you count the Fallsview Casino, where I had a few good hours of blackjack and ended up winning about $60 American (which is just about enough to get a new Shop-Vac for the basement…god I'm becoming my dad!). My wife is into the final 9 weeks of schooling at the New York Institute of Massage and unable to travel, so I knew this would be a putter around the house and catch up on sleep sort of week. Here are some things I thought along the way:
So this is why so many people are happy and joyous at 6pm, while I just normally want to go to bed!
So this is what it feels like to do yard work on a hot day and not need a nap when you're done.
I didn't look at any morning show tweets or blog posts while I was off. I trust my Producers to do good things when I'm gone. Sort of...
Watching the Mets blow a lead isn't any better while on vacation than it is while working.
I cleared so many goofy old things off the DVR, but it is still 57% full. Is it STUCK on that number?
It's good to unplug from all social media for a week. It forces you to slow down and get perspective.
I need a new laptop. 15" screen is too small.
I know they need to make $$$ with ads, but all those moving videos/pop up ads/who-knows-what-else make The Buffalo News and NY Daily News websites virtually unreadable on my laptop. If I get one more "Stop Script or Continue" message…
The NY Post website gets it right. Not all the time, but much more than the previously mentioned digital papers
Other than to see if rain would affect something I was doing outdoors, I barely paid attention to ANY weather reports. A nice change from giving weather about 4x an hour every day 6—9AM Monday through Friday on the radio. I can only imagine how TV Meteorologists feel when on vaca. They must think "I don't know if it'll rain, and I don't care."
For the past 3 years I've been saying how I've been a fan of Donald Trump forever, and have taken a lot of hits for it from co-workers and listeners. I don't agree with everything he says (John McCain IS a hero), but what I've said all along is coming to fruition. "If you take his thoughts, and have them come from someone OTHER than Trump, and they were delivered in a slightly less confrontational way, you would consider that person a strong Presidential candidate." I've said that soooo many times. Glad to see that people are now getting it. I only fear that Donald WILL go too far and say something goofy that even his big fans will hate, or the TV media (and print too….THE NY DAILY NEWS has been brutal on him) will have a field day with that it can falsely sway public opinion. And yes, the media DOES have that power.
Celebrity or Non-Celebrity Apprentice should NOT go on without Donald. Won't be the same. Also, anybody who watched The Apprentice for pure entertainment is missing out. From the very first season, till present, The Apprentice has been a fabulous teaching tool in how to act, and react, when under pressure. Image and style is half the battle when trying to get your point across.
With the fair in town, it's safe to say summer is winding down...However there's still plenty left do with so many new things popping up in Buffalo! Get out there and try the Water Bikes at Canalside, Paddle Board Yoga, and of course lots of new restaurants and bars to enjoy! Check out this list of compiled by Trib Live to start making your plans!
