Socks and Laundry

OK. The latest subject no doubt will interest many especially since at one time or another everyone has done a load of laundry.

Why is it that almost every time I do a load of laundry I lose a sock? Usually it turns up a few days later or the following week after I find it stuck inside something like a pair of pants or inside the washer or dryer despite the fact I meticulously went through each machine the prior week or when the last wash occurred to insure that nothing was left inside.

Today I found a gym sock that was lost for a week. Get this, it was in with my boxer shorts which are an array of plaid colors and not even remotely appearing as though they are gym socks.

I just finished another load today and lo and behold, yep, another sock has vanished. I went through every article of clothing that was in the washer and drier with this wash and I still can't find it. It's not in the washer and not in the drier either. But how much do you want to bet it will turn up by next week when washing day comes around?

Gremlins must be getting them...

Radio Station Update

My plans to develop the Part 15 AM radio station in the Cincinnati area appears to be in jeopardy. Several issues that are out of my control have arisen over the last few months and they are negatively impacting my plans to put the station on the air there.

I am currently working on an alternate plan and have started to look at new communities that should offer a viable backup plan in case my current plans are dead in the water. The biggest issue is that housing prices are rising fast and I am being priced out of the market for a second home which is critical for the location of a second transmitter. And another serious problem stemming from a nearby property that is creating a real noise issue is also a major factor.

Stay tuned to the site for new information as it becomes available. I will make a decision about whether or not to throw in the towel in the current location and go to another by this Fall.

Cooking shows on Television

I watch cooking shows on TV from time to time. Probably at least once a week. I like to cook and I can get some good ideas and recipes to use in the kitchen.

But can someone please explain to me why they never and I mean NEVER seem to create a bad dish that tastes awful? Seriously, it is hard to believe that every dish they make comes out fine and tastes great. Must be some kind of editing job during the shooting of the program. If something turns out bad they cut it out of the show and tape another segment that contains a better recipe or a remake of the original that now tastes the way it should.

Only on television...

NHL Stanley Cup Finals

If anyone can show me a sport that has a more exciting playoff and especially the finals other than Pro Hockey I'd sure like to know about it. It never ceases to amaze me at how NHL players seem to take up their level of play another notch or two when they get to the championship and play for Lord Stanley's Cup.

On a related note. I am befuddled as to why at least one of the big 3 TV Networks even failed to mention the winner of the Stanley Cup during its morning show. Instead the Soccer World Cup was pushed with live reports and a considerable amount of time was spent covering that. No mention and I mean no mention of the Stanley Cup Final except in a little message scrolling at the bottom of the screen with the rest of the less significant sports news.

Do you mean to tell me that Soccer now has more of a following in the USA than Hockey? I doubt it at least at the professional level.

The LPAM Network website notes

I am going to have to start from scratch and rebuild the LPAM Network website. Apparently some pages have become corrupt from something and I am unable to add new links on these pages to resources for Part 15 AM broadcasters.

I planned to purchase a new computer later this year and after that occurs, I will start work on the new version of the site. In the meantime please be patient and continue to use the site. I will be making some changes to the new site after I determine which content will stay or go and also how much time I will have in the future to maintain the site. The good news is the site will definitely survive in some form that will offer services to Part 15 AM broadcasters.
