This Saturday prior to the OSU vs Penn State join me at St. Johns Arena for The OSU FanZone, and my debut working with ESPN GameDay! Dez, Chris, Corso, Chris…AND ME!

IT IS HOLIDAY BOOK SEASON. If you or anyone you know is having an event, I have some availability and many openings with my guys! I pay 15% of any booked times to anyone who refers us, and will also pass this savings onto anyone who states they saw this mailer. NOW IS ALSO A GREAT TIME TO BOOK YOUR 2011 WEDDINGS! Book now to guarantee your date!

It has been a LONG week, yet productive. I have booked 6 gigs for 2011, 2 holiday parties, volunteered over 20 hours at Ronald McDonald House, A great week of workouts, AND BOOKED MY VACATION FOR LATER THIS MONTH-Thank God!

So gotta ask, what would you do for $20.00. Would you do something stupid? Something crazy-eat a goldfish? What would be the biggest or littlest thing you would do?

 

Now same question, but with 1cent. What would you do for a penny? You know that (at one time shiny picture of Honest Abe?) those things that we see on the ground and don’t bother to pick up, or throw out when we find them in our pockets. Would you do something stupid/ Something crazy? Probably not!?!?!

 

But what if we looked at a 20.00 and a penny like people. Hmmm…

 

There are a lot more pennies in this world that need shined than crisp 20.00 bills. So again I ask (to you and me), what would you do for a penny. Would you find the same value in each?



THANK YOU:

To Scott Polgard, Roger Bock, Joe Maggard (343 Front Street), and ALL THE DEVIL DOGS I call friends who allowed me the honor and privilege to play the 235 Marine Corp B-Day on Weds. It was great to see so many friends and to have a small role in your honored day! See you all on Dec 11th for Army vs Navy!

Semper Fi!

This event was the day before what SHOULD BE THE MOST CELEBRATED DAY IN THIS COUNTRY. Thursday was Veteran’s Day. This year I enjoyed how many I noticed doing “something.” However it still SICKENS me how many don’t get it. For many kids it is just a day off, HE**! for many state workers it was just a day off also!!! I can not serve, and this bothers me everyday, especially on PROUD DAYS LIKE Veterans Day! To all who have served, serving, given the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE (and their families)…THANK YOU!

 

THOUGHT(S) FOR WEEK:

“Yes I’d Rather Hurt Than Feel Nothin at All…”-Lady A (this da*n song has been waking me up for the last month!)

 

Criticism isn’t always negative!! Some times when we hear we need to make a change, it’s for the better and in that case someone just wants us to succeed!

 

SONG FOR THE WEEK:

What are your thoughts on Heaven? Mine is in the belly of Black Winged Bird. I HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE , and I deserve a ‘lil more! Song hitting home right now-I AM A KING, doing for others, and the best is here, but…

Skipping Work by Faking Disease
The trick is to pick something contagious. Necrotizing fasciitis also has a lot going for it. Tips from the experts

Nobody wants to be the kind of employee who abuses sick-day privileges. Or, rather, nobody wants to look like one. In a recent poll conducted by job website CareerBuilder, 29 percent of workers took a sick day this year when they were feeling just fine. This, of course, calls for a skill set that won’t show up on your yearend evaluation: coming up with a believable fake illness. It takes talent, cunning, and a willingness to lie through your teeth to the people who pay you. It also requires a sound game plan. So next time you do it, take your cues from the experts and choose the option that best suits you.

OPTION 1: BE FRIGHTENINGLY CONTAGIOUS
Dennis DiClaudio, author of The Hypochondriac’s Pocket Guide to Horrible Diseases You Probably Already Have, explains that there are three things that matter: contagion, contagion, and contagion. “Make certain your supervisor puts their best interests above those of the company,” DiClaudio says. “Make them believe their health is at risk.” However, keep it practical: Avoid excuses like “I have a nasty case of gonorrhea.” Also, keep it airborne. Tuberculosis is good, but it could lead to awkward conversations about why you’re not dead. Try whooping cough instead—no one will want to talk to you.

OPTION 2: PICK A NAME-BRAND DISEASE
Don’t take on an illness that requires an Oscar-worthy performance. For beginners, DiClaudio recommends the pleasantly titled disorder necrotizing fasciitis, more commonly known as flesh-eating bacteria. “It has a couple of things going for it,” DiClaudio says. “One, it originally presents itself as little more than a sore throat, a fever, and a mild case of nausea,” all of which are easy to fake—even for the cast of House. And two, it was mentioned on House, “which gives it an air of legitimacy.” Since the disease requires surgery, be sure to use it for a long vacation this winter.

OPTION 3: DON’T ACTUALLY GET HOSPITALIZED
Dr. Samuel E. Gandy, a professor of neurology and psychiatry at New York’s Mount Sinai School of Medicine, suggests subjective ailments rather than symptoms that could lead to an actual elevation. “Back pain, neck pain, and headache are among the easiest to fake.” It’s a good lie for those looking to catch up on sleep. “Bed rest is the best prescription for back pain,” he says. “If you want to trick a doc into sending you to bed for a week, that’s where you should start.”

 

POLITICS:

Kids, this is what a sore loser looks like…

 

Kasich wants passenger-train spending stopped; Strickland refuses

Governor-elect says $400 million should go for roads or freight rail in Ohio

The Columbus Dispatch

 

 

Gov.-elect John Kasich today formally asked outgoing Gov. Ted Strickland to halt any further spending for a proposed high-speed passenger rail system, saying no more funding should go toward a project that Kasich doesn’t want.

 

Kasich sent a letter to Strickland asking him to cancel all contracts for the project and also wrote to President Barack Obama asking him to instead reallocate the $400 million that Ohio received for the rail project for freight rail or roads in the state.

 

“In the event that you cannot accede to my request, I ask that you take no actions to spend the funds allocated to Ohio so that these funds can go toward reducing the federal government’s $1.4 trillion deficit,” Kasich wrote to Obama.

 

In his letter to Strickland, Kasich noted that Ohio is facing an $8 billion budget deficit next year and “every step should be taken to eliminate waste and prevent unnecessary spending.”

 

“I realize that we disagree on this issue, but I am confident that you and your administration will respect my request and take the steps that are in the best interest of Ohio taxpayers,” Kasich said in his letter.

 

But Strickland won’t oblige Kasich, saying a $25 million study already is under way and will produce valuable information that could prove useful even if the current proposal doesn’t go forward.

 

“There is nothing to fear from obtaining the good information that this study will provide to policy makers in the near term as well as the long term,” Strickland spokeswoman Kelly Schlissberg said. “So even if the governor-elect chooses not to support rail when he takes office, future governors or legislators with a vision for a modern Ohio will have better information as a result of this work.”

 

Schlissberg also reiterated that Strickland will not return the money, and if Kasich wants to do it, he’ll have to wait until he takes office Jan. 10.

 

“If the governor-elect wants to return Ohio’s federal grant money and send 16,000 jobs to another state, that will be his decision to make when he becomes governor,” she said.

 

Even before defeating Strickland in last week’s election, Kasich repeatedly said that he doesn’t think the proposal to expand passenger rail service among Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Dayton is viable and would seek to kill it.

 

Kasich wants the Ohio Department of Transportation to terminate contracts with two consultants valued at up to $25 million. That money would come out of $400 million in federal stimulus funds that Ohio was awarded this year for the project.

 

The state has contracted with PB Americas Inc. and CH2M Hill Inc. to study the environmental effects of the train service and to work with freight railroads on sharing tracks. But most of the work on those contracts remains unfinished.

 

The initial phase of the contracts is estimated at $15 million. State officials have not said how much work on those contracts has been completed, but under the contracts, the state can end work at any time and pay only for work completed.

 

Kasich has noted that the outgoing governor in Wisconsin has asked contractors to halt work on a planned high-speed rail line between Milwaukee and Madison because the incoming governor in that state also opposes the project.

 

But Strickland has said repeatedly that if Ohio turns down the $400 million, it will go to other states. New York’s governor-elect, Andrew Cuomo, has asked federal officials to award rail-designated stimulus money to his state if Ohio and Wisconsin reject it.

 

Kasich previously has suggested that Ohio’s money could be reprogrammed to be used for roads, bridges or other infrastructure, but Strickland has said that wouldn’t happen and Ohio would simply lose the funding.

 

 

MILITARY:

Happy Veterans Day to all serving, served, and given the ultimate sacrifice, as well as their families. WE need to not only make sure we are ALWAYS thanking OUR Heroes, but also, making sure the NEXT GENERATIONS “get it.”

BUISNESS/PRODUCT OF WEEK:

YOU DA MAN:

SPORTS:

My Newark Catholic Green Wave was defeated late on Friday taking away the chances of another state title, but these brave kids fought hard all season to continue an amazing legacy at my alma mater.

 

BUCKEYES:

Nine games into his junior season, Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor said this week he has no plans to forego his senior season and head for the NFL.

“It would be hard being away from a lot of the guys I’ve been around, and I want to get my degree as well, so I could finish that up,” Pryor said. “I want to have a legacy here, you know? Maybe someday get my jersey hung up. That’s one of my goals as well here.”

Players tend to change their mind about going pro once they see their draft projections, but given Pryor’s self acknowledged need to continue developing, I doubt that he will be projected high enough to change his mind on this one.

I have assumed for a long time that Pryor would return, but it’s nice to hear that he is thinking along the same lines. You can never be absolutely sure on these things, but all signs point to Terrelle Pryor returning for his fourth year, and that, obviously, is a good thing for the Buckeyes.
