Boy isn't technology great?  We can get the answers to any question on a moments notice by just typing a question into the Poptart sized computer in our pocket.

And boy isn't social media great?  We can connect with family & friends and folks from high school even though if you saw them in real life you'd bury your face under your hat and/or mask and not make eye contact as you walk by.

Have you seen the "26.2" OF SNOW NEXT WEEKEND" post? You may have seen it and you may have shared it and we all need to shame you if you did.

Meteorologist Andrew Stutzky from WQAD says "Not so fast! Beware what you share this time of year. Here's why."

This goes for any "fake news" on the internet.  If you click "share" or "forward" you deserve to have your account suspended and a scarlet D stamped on your profile pick for "Dumbass".

There's enough real life garbage to sift through on social media.  We don't need your made up garbage to check into like a part time Columbo.

Recently I did a search on my email for something my dad had sent me and realized how much spam he forwarded to me.  Do yourself a favor and search for "fwd" and go back as far back as you can.

Here are a sample of real subject lines in my email box from 2010-2012

Fw: Fwd: How's This For Nostalgia?

Fw: Fw: Blonde jokes

Fw: Fw: If You Delete This Take Me Off Your Mail List

Fw: Fw: 21 year old that get's it!

If someone sent you this today...you'd be pissed and assume it was a virus.  Can we please do the same for the crap people forward on social media?

DIY Mc

Everyone is rejoicing that the McRib is back! You can hear the chanting from down the block. Everyone is washing their hands a little bit more due to the bbq sauce residue and it's wonderful.

All is right with the world.

But it isn't always like this. The McRib will leave soon and we'll have to settle for a McChicken or a Double Quarter Pounder like a peasant. Life isn't fair. We know this.

However, my cousin Steve has figured out a way to beat the system.

He's gotten his hands dirty and experimented so we don't have to. He has perfected the DIY McRib!

Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore

Nostalgia Alert!.

We've compiled a quick list (by no means comprehensive) of venues in the Quad Cities that are no longer music venues but to us will ALWAYS hold a special place were we saw some great shows and made some incredible memories.

To many of us the live music scene wasn't just a concert here & there. It was an every weekend affair. And it didn't matter if it was a touring band or your buddy's band. We were going to be there with a beer in hand and scream along with guitars that were way too loud in a room that was improperly treated acoustically and make some bad decisions.
