PACNORWEST Briefing #1

I wanted to drop an update an let ya’ll know how things are progressing up here in the land of trees and incredibly poor drivers.

Cami started her job today at the Bremerton Naval Hospital. Needless to say, I am thrilled about it, although when we showed up this morning to get her pass and ID, the office was closed because the Sailors who were supposed to be there were “late.” This is a new concept to me, as I was always under the impression that the one thing we Sailors could not be was “late.” Nevertheless, she finally made it in and I went off to my job working on the management side of Real Estate.  Read the rest of this entry

Adieu, Rachel

Everyday, I try to close the show with a lesson which I learned too many times the hardest way possible. Believe me when I tell you this, tomorrow is not a guarantee. While the world mourns the loss of yet another “one-of-a-kind-misunderstood-and-underappreciated musical genius,” this show, and Cami and I, lost a friend this past week. Rachel was a loyal listener to the show for a very long time, and over that time she became a friend to Cami and I.

Look, everybody has their own demons and issues. We all face them in our own ways, and one of the joys in life is when somebody – a friend – finds their way past those issues and reaches a place in life of happiness and fulfillment. Our friend Rachel certainly found hers at a little country store in Maine, after leaving the Central Valley to start over.

Life is too short and too precious to dwell on the negatives. Rachel found a new life and a new joy in a new place that ended far too soon and for the simple reason that so many of us ignore ourselves. If you don’t feel good, and it keeps going on, go to the damn doctor.

Today as family and friends mourn her loss, I just wanted to remind you again, that you need to take the time – right now – to tell the people who matter in your life that you love them and that you would miss them if they weren’t there. Please don’t pass up those opportunities, You are not promised a tomorrow. And you simply do not want to have the regret of never having another chance to tell people that they matter to you.

Emu Wedding… It Was in Escalon..

Original Airdate: May 17, 2012



It way on this day in 2012 that a 14 year old boy bit into a Wendy’s hamburger and provided much entertainment to Dave, John and Mazzy. More importantly, Donna Summer passed away, which was sad, but at the same time allowed Dave to at long last forgiver her for the long national nightmare she inflicted on the entire nation in 1978.

It turned out that Mazzy was quite the Richard Harris fan, and his clothes as well. Also at least two of the Gibb Brothers remain dead. But  in any case, the boys, know how the whole Wedding DJ thing works, including what songs get the wrong people dancing…
