I can smell the beef. Beef-A-Rama 48 is just around the corner. Join us in Minocqua on Saturday all day. We will have the WRJO Slot Machine there for it's last appearance of the year. We will also have our famous free popcorn for all.

Also you can join the WRJO Beef Eating Contest. Just call me, 715-479-4451. We still have some spots open. This year we will be eating beef sandwiches.

It is always a great day, and lot's of fun. Come on down.

I got something cool sent to me.

Watch  what a group of engineers did, using fun to get people to use a long  staircase with a moving escalator right next to it.
 
At first no one took the stairs; almost 97% of the people took the escalator.
 
Notice how engineers changed how people reacted to climbing a long stair case as first choice; 66% more people took the stairs .  
 

"Click Here" to see the video, and enjoy.   

Have a great day.

Well fall is officially here. Before you know it, ice fishing will be going on.

Alright, sorry to rush things.

This week we enjoy a favorite recipe of Gary and Leslie Jelinski of Conover. This is simple but good according to the Jelinski's.

Today we dine on Just Simple Fish...

The Parts:
4 walleye fillets
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pinch salt (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups crushed saltine crackers
vegetable oil for frying 
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Makin' It': 
Check the fillets to ensure all bones and skin have been removed. Cut the fillets into manageable pieces, if necessary.

Place the beaten eggs a bowl and set aside. Combine the flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in another bowl. Pour the cracker crumbs into a third bowl.

Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat to 375 degrees.

Dip the fillets into the flour mixture, then the eggs, and then the cracker crumbs and set fillets aside on a plate. 

Cook fillets in oil till brown and flaky. 

Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with remaining fillets. Serve with fresh lemon wedges.

There you go. It does sound great. Your fish is on the way.


Now don't forget, if you have a recipe that everyone should try get it to me. All recipes can be sent by e-mails, letter, or dropped off her at the studios in Eagle River. If I use you recipe on this blog you will receive a FREE fish fry to a local restaurant.

Good Tuesday.

Well they say you learn something new everyday.

What I learned today is that we have oil glands in our eyelids and they can get infected.












And when they do you wake up in the morning looking like this...















I also found out that if not treated, you can develope a stye in your eye and the infection can get Very bad.

I guess what I am saying is that if you wake up in the morning looking like this,
do NOT blow it off get to the eye doctor right away.

Happy Thursday.

Don't forget that we have another big Northland Pines Footbal game on the air tomorrow night for you as the Eagles are at home to take on Hancock.

I received this e-mail / story of The Bagpiper from my mom. I wanted to share it with you...


The Bagpiper

As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral
director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no
family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in
the Kentucky back country.

As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a
typical male, I didn't stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour
late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was
nowhere in sight.

There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.
I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late.

I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was
already in place.

I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play. The workers put
down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart
and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I've
never played before for this homeless man. And as I played 'Amazing
Grace,' the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept
together.

When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car.
Though my head hung low, my heart was full. As I opened the door to my
car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never seen nothin' like that
before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

Apparently I'm still lost!

Non that right there is some funny stuff.

God Bless and have a great day.

Happy Wednesday.

So I wanted to share this letter with you. This is an actual letter sent to a man named Ryan DeVries regarding a pond on his property. It was sent by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Quality, State of Pennsylvania. This guy's response is hilarious, but read the State's letter before you get to the response letter, you won’t stop once you start. WOW, Love this man.

 












This is an actual letter: State of Pennsylvania 's letter to Mr. DeVries: 

SUBJECT: DEQ ... File No.97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec 20; Lycoming County 

Dear Mr. DeVries: 

It has come to the attention of the Department of Environmental Quality that there has been recent unauthorized activity on the above referenced parcel of property. You have been certified as the legal landowner and/or contractor who did the following unauthorized activity: 

Construction and maintenance of two wood debris dams across the outlet stream of Spring Pond. 

A permit must be issued prior to the start of this type of activity. A review of the Department's files shows that no permits have been issued Therefore, the Department has determined that this activity is in violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Pennsylvania Compiled Laws, annotated. 

The Department has been informed that one or both of the dams partially failed during a recent rain event, causing debris and flooding at downstream locations.. We find that dams of this nature are inherently hazardous and cannot be permitted. The Department therefore orders you to cease and desist all activities at this location, and to restore the stream to a free-flow condition by removing all wood and brush forming the dams from the stream channel. All restoration work shall be completed no later than January 31, 2010. 

Please notify this office when the restoration has been completed so that a follow-up site inspection may be scheduled by our staff. Failure to comply with this request or any further unauthorized activity on the site may result in this case being referred for elevated enforcement action.. 

We anticipate and would appreciate your full cooperation in this matter. Please feel free to contact me at this office if you have any questions. 

Sincerely,
David L. Price
District Representative and Water Management Division. 
 
 
Here is the actual response sent back by Mr. DeVries: 

Re: DEQ File 
No.. 97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Lycoming County 

Dear Mr. Price, 

Your certified letter dated 11/17/09 has been handed to me. I am the legal landowner but not the Contractor at 2088 Dagget Lane , Trout Run, Pennsylvania . 

A couple of beavers are in the process of constructing and maintaining two wood 'debris' dams across the outlet stream of my Spring Pond. While I did not pay for, authorize, nor supervise their dam project, I think they would be highly offended that you call their skillful use of nature’s building materials 'debris.' 

I would like to challenge your department to attempt to emulate their dam project any time and/or any place you choose. I believe I can safely state there is no way you could ever match their dam skills, their dam resourcefulness, their dam ingenuity, their dam persistence, their dam determination and/or their dam work ethic. 

These are the beavers/contractors you are seeking. As to your request, I do not think the beavers are aware that they must first fill out a dam permit prior to the start of this type of dam activity. 



















My first dam question to you is: 
(1) Are you trying to discriminate against my Spring Pond Beavers, or
(2) Do you require all beavers throughout this State to conform to said dam request? 

If you are not discriminating against these particular beavers, through the Freedom of Information Act, I request completed copies of all those other applicable beaver dam permits that have been issued. (Perhaps we will see if there really is a dam violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Pennsylvania Compiled Laws, annotated.) 

I have several dam concerns. My first dam concern is, aren't the beavers entitled to legal representation? The Spring Pond Beavers are financially destitute and are unable to pay for said representation -- so the State will have to provide them with a dam lawyer. 

The Department's dam concern that either one or both of the dams failed during a recent rain event, causing flooding, is proof that this is a natural occurrence, which the Department is required to protect. In other words, we should leave the Spring Pond Beavers alone rather than harassing them and calling them dam names. 

If you want the damed stream 'restored' to a dam free-flow condition please contact the beavers -- but if you are going to arrest them, they obviously did not pay any attention to your dam letter, they being unable to read English. 

In my humble opinion, the Spring Pond Beavers have a right to build their unauthorized dams as long as the sky is blue, the grass is green and water flows downstream. They have more dam rights than I do to live and enjoy Spring Pond. If the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection lives up to its name, it should protect the natural resources (Beavers) and the environment (Beavers' Dams). 

So, as far as the beavers and I are concerned, this dam case can be referred for more elevated enforcement action right now. Why wait until 1/31/2010? The Spring Pond Beavers may be under the dam ice by then and there will be no way for you or your dam staff to contact/harass them. 

In conclusion, I would like to bring to your attention to a real environmental quality, health, problem in the area It is the bears! Bears are actually defecating in our woods. I definitely believe you should be persecuting the defecating bears and leave the beavers alone. If you are going to investigate the beaver dam, watch your dam step! The bears are not careful where they dump! 

Being unable to comply with your dam request, and being unable to contact you on your dam answering machine, I am sending this response to your dam office. 

THANK YOU, 

RYAN DEVRIES & THE DAM BEAVERS

Now that is dam funny.

Have a great Wednesday.

Seeing that today is Labor Day and we should be taking the day off from laboring. I should not have to talk about stress in our lives. But, because at some point we will all be back to work enjoying what "The Man" brings to our daily lives, I pass along this stress tip I received, and I now share it with you to help with the day to day.

A young lady confidently walked around the room with a raised glass of water, while explaining stress management to an audience; and everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'half empty or half full?'..... she fooled them all... "How heavy is this glass of water?", she inquired with a smile.


Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance. In each case it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

She continued, "and that's the way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on."

"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden - holding stress longer and better each time practiced.

So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the evening and into the night.... pick them up tomorrow.

Whatever burdens you're carrying now, put them down for a moment. Relax, pick them up later after you've rested. Life is short. Enjoy it and the now 'supposed' stress that you've conquered!"


1 * Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue!
 
2 * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

3 * Always read stuff that makes you feel good..

4 * Drive carefully... It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker..

5 * If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague

6 * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it..

7 * It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

8 * Never buy a car you can't push.

9 * Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

10 * Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance..

11 * Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late..

12 * The second mouse gets the cheese.

13 * When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

14 * Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

15 * You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

16 * Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.

17 * We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

18 * A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour..

19* When all else fails -- remember all the different varieties of chocolate there are!

Have a relaxing Labor Day.

Later
