Most of you know that I have a passion for radio and getting information like snow closings and time changes to everyone. This is second only to my passion for my beloved Mini Cooper.

Never fear: I always bring a ready for anything positive attitude and when that doesn’t influence friends and co-workers, I have an electric griddle in my office to make breakfast for everyone. Occasionally, those pancakes might mysteriously turn into cocktails.
