Dave5I got my start in broadcasting when I was in high school at the age of 17.One day our electronics teacher told us that the local cable company was looking for a couple of camera operators.I had visions of getting my foot in the door as a cameraman and then convincing them I should try to do a close circuit radio show.Which they let me do.On Saturday nights we played music and took requests.At the same time I became a reporter for a radio station in Stratford .Covering town council meetings and sports events.Eventully I became an on air host on a partime basis at that same station.From there I went to their sister station at the time in Parry Sound.Since it was a small station, I was an on air host, copy writer and Sports Director.After two years there I went back to Stratford moving from evenings to eventually Program Director.

In 1984 I moved to Tillsonburg and in 1986 I became the Program Manager of Easy101/Country 107 3. Besides broadcasting, I sit on the board of directors with Community Living Ontario, Community Living Tillsonburg, and Norwich Merchants Jr. C Hockey Club.

A Brooklyn man broke the Guinness world’s record for watching TV, 94 hours straight. Oddly enough this prestigious award did not get him any new calls on dating apps.

If you think you are having a bad day what about this guy.  A San Francisco thief pedaled his bike up to a woman on the sidewalk, snatched the iPhone out of her hands, and rode away. Unknown to him, the woman was in the middle of demonstrating the iPhone’s new GPS tracking device, which worked—the thief was captured minutes later.
On this day in 1896, the Tootsie Roll was introduced by Leo Hirshfield.

A statistical look at who we are and the things we do …
• 90% of us say we have experienced ‘brain freeze’.
• 72% of men exaggerate how good they were at sports in school when talking to women.
• 33% of adults say they need a stuffed animal in order to fall asleep.
• 25% of men say they get tired after about 25 minutes of shopping.
• 20% of women say they have prayed before stepping on a scale.
• 15% of us admit that we have been known to fall asleep in the washroom at work.
✓ Power Nap – After dozing for a quick 15 minutes, this nap gives you the ‘power’ to go right back to sleep for the rest of the day.
✓ Cat Nap – The fastest way to rest and recharge before realizing that after resting and recharging, the world has become an even more boring and terrifying place.
✓ Existential Dread Nap – If you can’t stand the shocking meaninglessness of your existence, this 1-to-14 hour nap is your best bet.
✓ “Just Closing My Eyes For a Few Minutes” – We all lie to ourselves. Surely this little white lie won’t be the one that tips the scales and turns you into a nap addict. Or will it?
✓ Boredom Nap – For when you’ve got a few hours or even weeks between worthwhile things to do, see, or live for.
✓ Avoiding Upsetting Memories Nap – Did your ex just follow you on Twitter after not speaking to you for 3 years? Why not doze off instead of confronting your personal failures?
✓ Beauty Rest – Ideal for keeping your skin looking young even as your bones and positive memories turn to dust.
✓ The Waking Nap – For when you can no longer tell the difference between the torture of being awake and the numbness of being asleep.
✓ Dirt Nap – Ah, finally … total peace.
