Thank You!

April 7, 2014

Its JJ Roth from The Show and I just wanted to thank everyone who helped make the 3rd Annual Danny's Walk 4 Wishes such a tremendous success.  Everyone from The Rude Awakening Show who auctioned off a $1000 photo shoot for $550, to everyone who donated online or just took time to learn about the walk and Danny's message I say THANK YOU so much.  Our goal was to raise $7,500 which is the average cost of a wish for a child through the Make A Wish Foundation and because of ya’ll we are very close and I will go ahead and say we will reach that goal at months end with all the donations still pouring in.  So to all of you that helped us with Danny's Walk thank you so much from Danny his family and our collective hearts.  We couldn’t have done without each and every one of you and we cant wait until the 4th annual walk next year.  Thanks again everyone :) #BlessedBeyondWords

A Day In The Life

March 6, 2014
This isn't really news, more like an admission of history, an acknowledgment of a guilty pleasure: In the Spring of 1983, I grabbed some of my paper route money and rode my 10 speed bike down the old train tracks to a place called Penguin Feather and purchased a copy of Def Leppard - Pyromania... When I got home I rocked that place to the ground, I burned it up, I went for broke, I watched the night go up in smoke, I admit it.

So Long Sochi!

Russia was great!  However, I am glad to be back in the States, on good old 'Merican soil.  Too bad Russians can't get anything right, or maybe that is a good thing, if you take the Cold War into consideration.  No matter where I travel & I get around a bit, I am happy to get back to the U.S.A.  The truth is: I get home sick!  I miss my friends, animals, vehicles and the stuff I am accustomed to eating and drinking.  First thing I had when I got home was a bowl of cereal and some kick-ass pasteurized American MILK!  Tonight PIZZA, no one makes pizza like Americans, that includes Italians... sorry.  Glad to be back on Delmarva!
