Stampede Ready!

I met my bride at the Stampede, did you know that? Two Budweisers's and she was mine forever. No Joke! She hates that story though. It's our 5th wedding anniversary this year... maybe I'll get her a 6-pack. Oh the romance!!

The City says 6th Avenue WILL be open in time for the Parade which goes next Friday, by the way on JULY 4th. I can save you some trouble as Stampede Parade Info isn't easy to find on the Stampede Website this year. CLICK HERE to get there.

Energy 101.5 will have some seats for you AND some breakfast on Stampede Parade Day. I'll save those secret details for now, cuz I don't think I'm allowed to share them just yet. Know this though, you can watch the parade with Freeway and Meg in the best seats on the route!

Firefighters Vs Cowboys

I was shocked this weekend to learn new things about some of my coworkers. Saturday afternoon we were hanging out at Marlborough Ford in Calgary's NE, and a normal conversation SOMEHOW turned into talking about Firefighters. Let me introduce Maria and Monica, who both work in the Energy 101.5 Sales Department.

Maria from Energy 101.5
Monica from Energy 101.5
Wow... that REALLY got the attention of Maria and Monica! The reason for my surprise is that I ALWAYS thought (for the ladies) that COWBOYS were the shiz. You know, the hottest thing to walk the planet. I was shocked to hear comments like "Firefighters can carry people out of burning buildings, that's HOT!" and "They carry such big hoses!". Pardon?

Yesterday, while planning todays Morning Show, I asked M&M if I could call them so they could share their "Firefighter" opinions on the show. Turns out, not only did they offer to get up early to share, they provided pictures. This morning, I arrived in the studio to Firefighter Calendar Pictures and this caption "STOP! DROP! And show my your Hose!". Wow.. are all ladies CRAZY for firefighters? With Stampede coming up, I SO thought cowboys owned the "ladies fantasy" market.

I could only copy 1 image from the Firefighter Calendar Website, so here it is.
Please visit the website for the Calendar, as the proceeds go to the Calgary Burn Unit. Click here to go there
I've also changed my POLL (sorry, it's not a Firefighter Firehall type POLE) to reflect this little quesion to, please participate.

Some Secrets about my co workers

OK, so we had the Energy 101.5 Staff Spring Shindig out at my place in Carstairs over the weekend. As I watched my friends and collegues through the evening, I noticed a few little quirks that many of you probably don't know about!

So, let's Share!

Freeway Frank - is SHOCKINGLY good at roasting marshmallows on an open fire. You know how we all try to not catch them on fire? This guy can roast like 6 at a time to gooey brown goodness! Who knew?

Ian MacKinnon - Not a burger guy at all, in fact is "more of a weiner man" if I may quote him directly. The truth is he likes his weiners 2 at a time! Double doggin' it!

Erin Wilde - Endless croaking of frogs drive her CRAZY! And, she's crazy about taking pictures! Quite the hobby-photographer, that girl - and good at it!

Shalini from promotions - strangely compact, as she can fit into my kids playhouse! Not quite sure how.

Khazma from promotions - ENDLESS energy and tolerance for children! Hello? How do you not go crazy!?

Rob the boss - he has a pink camera. Shocking.

That's really it... I need to go eat some of the leftover filet mignon from the party that I have in my work-lunch today :)

EMAIL ME if you'd like some tickets set aside for you!


Here's the info: Echidnas, Goannas and More!
Sustainable research and living on Kangaroo Island, South Australia
For 20 years Dr. Peggy Rismillers has been studying the unique environments on Kangaroo Island South Australia from the self-suffi cient Pelican Lagoon Research & Wildlife Centre (Earthwatch destination). Join us to discover more about Echidnas, the other egg-laying mammal, and a threatened species, Rosenberg’s goanna. Both these species are great at keeping biological secrets and can provide living models in nature that we can all learn from. This program is made possible with the generous support of Shell.

Self Confidence at it's best!

This is an email forward I received from my buddy Shalini here @ Energy. You might have had this emailed to you and seen it already, but JUST in case you haven't... take a peek. Goes like this:

This is a public toilet in Houston :
Now that you've seen the outside vie, take a look at the inside view..
It's made entirely of one-way glass! No one can see you from the outside,
but when you are inside it's like sitting in a clear glass box!

Now would you...
COULD YOU... Use it?!
