  • I really do need to learn how to cook!

    I am addicted to several shows on The Food Network. I love Chopped, Iron Chef America, Restaurant Impossible and a few other shows. I am not sure if I enjoy the TV competition aspect or do I like see what the professional chefs create. Nevertheless, I can't cook. I don't know how to cook. I basically have 6 to 10 dishes that I make at home and they are the most basic of things like spaghetti or something like that.

  • I love the IMAX....

    I've lived in Wichita for almost two years now, and I love being in a city with an IMAX theater. When a huge blockbuster action packed movie comes out, it's a no-brainer that I will see it at the IMAX on the west side of town. That was the case this past weekend with Iron Man 3. The movie opened up huge in the US this weekend, taking in $175 million, with almost 10% of that from IMAX viewing. I've seen about 10 movies now at the IMAX on the west side, and look forward to when a big movie is released. Next up is Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel.

  • I am addicted to Royalty...

    I've mentioned this before, as I am intrigued by royalty. I have never wished I was royal or anything like that, I just have always been curious to know about the royals of the world. Every so often I read up on royal families from the different countries. The world has a new King as the previous Queen has abdicated her throne. This week, the Queen of the Netherlands, Queen Beatrix, abdicated her throne after 33 years, to allow her eldest son become the first King of the country in over 123 years. The new king is also Europe's youngest King.

  • Colin a TEXAN???

    This is why I love the draft. There are many players that go undrafted and end up being a future star. Being drafted isn't everything. So, when the draft was over, Kansas State quarterback Colin Klein went undrafted. He was a finalist in the Heisman trophy, but still, no team used a pick to select him. If you don't know, or haven't heard, I am a huge Houston Texans fan. Watching ESPN and hearing about Colin signing with the Texans as an undrafted free agent was great to hear. He hasn't made the official roster yet, but I do see him being productive in training camp and being a solid back up quarterback to Matt Schaub. Congrats Colin!!! Go TEXANS!

  • It's DRAFT time...

    The 2013 NFL draft is tomorrow. I am not so much a football geek to follow the draft, but it does indicate that the season is getting closer. I look forward to football season every year. I enjoy Saturday's at the sports bar to watch college football and then on Sunday, hitting a sports bar to watch my favorite team the Houston Texans. So with the draft being tomorrow, it's just another thing I have to look forward to, other than WARM weather in Kansas.. haha

  • It's blockbuster movie time.....

    I look forward to this time of the year. It's when all of the big box office movies start being released. This past week, was the new Tom Cruise movie 'Oblivion'. It was #1 at the box office over the weekend. I am planning on seeing it in the next week. May, June and July also feature some huge movies. Coming up May 3rd, it's 'Iron Man 3'. Then, May 15th, is 'Star Trek Into Darkness'. 'Hangover III' is May 24th followed by June 14th with 'Man of Steel'. On July 3rd is 'The Lone Ranger'. Then on July 12th is 'Grown Ups 2'.

  • I LOVE MY FAMILY...even the eccentric ones!!!

    I've mentioned I have a very unique extended family. The latest issue of LA Weekly features a story of The Morgans. I love these guys. I've been to their home several times, I've met their animals and I absolutely love being on that hill. It's hard to explain who they are. This is a great read and does a better job than I could.

  • The WORLD'S best......

    If anyone is asked to describe me when it comes to food, they will tell you I love to eat. I eat just about anything and everything. When there is food here at the station, I will usually be found near it smelling it and finding a way to eat it, even if its not for me. haha. I love everything from pizza, hamburgers, seafood, steaks to Italian, Mexican, and Chinese to sushi.

  • And 'her' name will be.........

    I don't know why, but I've always been fascinated by the British Royal Family. I am a fan of Prince William and Katherine. Now that she is pregnant, the speculation on what the newborn's name will be. There is even strong rumors that the the royal couple are expecting a girl. So what will 'her' name be then.

  • The Eagles are BACK, we hope........

    Joe Walsh was interviewed recently and he let slip some news. Some very cool news. The Eagles are planning a tour. It's not confirmed or official yet, but this article alludes to it. Would you make a road trip to see this concert?

  • A Lennon turns 50!

    It's hard to believe John Lennon's been gone for over 30 years. It's one of those events from our past that it still seems like yesterday when it happened the moment we heard that he was killed. Now, how about this to make you feel even older and say to yourself 'wow, how time has flown by'. His eldest son Julian is now 50 years old. WOW!

  • I give it a THUMBS UP...

    Sad news hearing about Roger Ebert passing away. I remember when I was younger, I watched the Siskel & Ebert show where they critiqued movies. It was a fun show watching the two of them either argue or agree about a movie. I don't know if it really influenced me from seeing the specific movie, but I remember that was really the first way for me to see a trailor of the movie. Siskel died many years ago, and then Ebert did a show with another guy named Roeper. Movie critics will never be as entertaining, more knowledgable and more fun than Roger Ebert. RIP Roger.

  • The worst pain I've ever felt...

    I am sure many of you were watching the game when it happened, or you've certainly heard about it by now. The basketball player from Louisville breaking his leg in two different places had to have been one of the most painful things a human being can experience. The fact that his leg broke in two places and worse yet, the bone break protuded the skin and was exposed and his leg dangling. I've broken my finger and I've broken my nose, and yet while they both hurt to varying degrees, I can't even fathom how much pain the young man felt. What's the worst pain you've ever experienced? johnny@1045thefox.com

  • Don't you just love bracket fever....

    Living in Wichita has been great as a college basketball fan. With Wichita State and Kansas now both in the top 16 in the tourney, the excitement, the energy, the enthusiasm is rampant throughout. That's why I love the month of March when it comes to college basketball. As for my personal bracket, I have not done so well. I didn't have Wichita State beating Gonzaga and have also not done well with other games. I do have Kansas playing in the final game vs. Louisville, so I am anxious to see if that plays out.

  • The death penalty for Punxsutawney Phil????

    It's late March.. Spring has 'officially started. So then WHY is snow in the forecast. This year has been pretty brutal with the cold temperatures and the snow that has hit hard in many places in the country and here in the midwest and Wichita, KS. I am from Texas, and just last month was down visiting family and I played golf and enjoyed 70-80 degree weather.

  • Celebrities doing stupid things....let's put that on TV!

    Last night on ABC, was the debut of the tv show SPLASH! A group of celebrities learn to dive into a pool of a diving board or platform. Olympic champion Greg Louganis is the coach and there is a training of them learning how to overcome their fears and learn to do trick dives in front of a live audience and then be judged. Contestants were Rudy from the Cosby Show to Kareem Abdul Jabbar to Louis Anderson.

  • St. Patty's Day weekend....

    Are you a fan of St. Patty's Day? Do you get into all the festivities? The parade, the beeds, the color green, the four leaf clover, the bagpipes and music, the food, and the 'green' beer. I love this holiday for the experience of just soaking up the environment and people watching. I have no family lineage of Irish but would love someday to visit the country of Ireland. There is a great event in the Delano district on Sunday that you and the family may want to go check out.

  • The R.E.M. song finally makes sense.....

    'It's The End of the World'...Is it just me, or lately, we've been hearing and actually seeing Astreroids near the earth. One actually hit us hard in Russia recently. I saw the movie 'Armeggedon' starring Bruce Willis. The movie, while science fiction, could actually happen. Is America, or better yet, is EARTH prepared for a large asteroid on a collision course with our planet? Can we unite together as a planet and protect ourself?

  • Spring Forward..........

    This weekend, its Daylight Savings time. Saturday night, be sure to move your clocks forward one hour. I'll be honest, I don't care about losing an hour of sleep. I don't sleep much anywy. What I am most excited about is that winter is over!!! Bring on Spring! Bring on the warmer weather. Bring on the short sleeve and shorts weather. Bring on the dog park weather for me and my dog SJ to stay at the park longer.

  • RIP Paul Bearer...

    I've been fortunate enough to meet some pretty cool people over the years. I've also been privileged to work with some cool people throughout my career. Many years ago, I did some ring announcing and interviews with an independent wrestling organization. On one of the cards, was a manager by the name of Paul Bearer. He gained fame from the WWE as the manager of The Undertaker. He was a great character and a really good guy in person. He was down to earth and very funny. I enjoyed meeting and working with him.
