It was a few years ago that I needed to drop my car off to get a new back window put in.  I may have been mowing near a gravel road and a rock might have been kicked up and bashed out the back of my wife's van.

She was super impressed.

So, being the kind, super friendly fella he is, Greg Dwyer offered to follow me to Kyger Glass up on North Brady and give me a ride back to the radio station.

Cut to the following day, when Dwyer was recounting the event (which I didn't even realize was an event) on the air he was talking about how when I turned the corner I didn't stay in my lane...I jumped several lanes in order to turn into the Kryger parking lot.

He said I was a bad driver.

In my defense, a bad driver wouldn't have realized they what they were doing.  I knew there were no cars in my way and proceeded to jump lanes mid turn on purpose. I did the illegal, dangerous thing fully well knowing it was illegal and dangerous.

So, yeah...he might be right. That sounds like I may be a bad driver.

But incase you don't know you are a bad driver like me...a survey has determined what makes a bad driver bad, and found the top signs you might be a terrible driver.  How many of these do you admit to?

1.  Excessive speeding.
2.  Cutting people off.
3.  Tailgating.
4.  Constant road rage.
5.  Using your horn too much.
6.  Not using turn signals.
7.  Driving with one hand on the wheel.
8.  Talking too much while you drive.  Either to passengers or on the phone.
9.  Leaving your high beams on when you don't need them.
10.  Singing along to the radio.

In other news, researchers say our traffic woes would go away if we just got rid of left turns at most intersections.

Museums Within Driving Distance of the Quad Cities

"There isn't a museum I won't go to. The stupider, the better."
Michaels' statement this morning sent us into a good hour of discussion about museums within driving distance of the Quad Cities. Our listening family has clued us in on little hole-in-the-wall museums we never even knew existed, and they're just a hop, skip and a jump away from us. 
Here's our highlights.

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.
