Flash: Public Wi-Fi even more insecure than previously thought - There have been a few postings here(and elsewhere) about public WiFi. And I'm not just criticizing about government contracted WiFi services. Nor am I criticizing the local Panera's, Burger King, Mickey D's, Starbuck's etc. I AM warning those of you who use these services that you must take personal responsibility to secure your wireless data communications. - More>>

Forget Wi-Fi Toledo...Just wait for google Wi-Fi - An article I found about Google's plan to pay billions for vacated 700mhz airwaves. Only, googs wants the FCC to follow their 4 criteria for openness. It also seems that Verizon and ATT are looking to pick up some of the vacated airwaves as well. - More>>

Generation Chickenhawk: the Unauthorized College Republican Convention Tour - On July 13, 2007, I visited Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery, where the bodies of American soldiers killed in Iraq were freshly interred. Afterwards, I headed across the street to the Sheraton National Hotel, owned by right-wing Korean cult leader Sun Myung-Moon, to meet some of the war's most fervent supporters at the College Republican National Convention. - More>>

I am looking for a little guidance with my preteen - My 11 year old daughter is a great kid, but lately whenever I discipline her about the simplest thing, she goes into a crying meltdown. When I say discipline, I mean talk to her about her actions, she is never spanked and at the most sent to her room for 15 min., but usually just verbally reprimanded. Is this normal behavior? As I said, she really is a great kid, but is this something I should seek professional help for?

Impeach Lepkowski - Always smiling and telling people to "start packing." Then trying to sell their home out from underneath of them. No one tells him to start packing and then sells their home. That's simply impolite. The welcome mat is not legally binding. When did Dan get powers of eminent domain? - More>>

Government has some money to give back - From a Jul 11, 2007 Wade Kapszukiewicz blog posting: "If you are planning on attending the Lagrange Street-Polish Festival this weekend, be sure to seek out the booth staffed by members of the Treasurer's office. Among other useful information, my staff will have a hard-copy print-out of the roughly 125,000 Lucas County residents who are owed money by the state of Ohio. Most of the people on the list don't even know it, including the family who learned this week that it is owed $277,000 in unclaimed funds! So feel free to look for us this summer, or just visit this link on our website to see if you are one of the lucky Lucas County residents entitled to get some money BACK from the government!"

Help Identifying an Instrumental Song for the Mid 1970s - This is kind of a stupid request, but I am desperate. Any of you ever listen to Bob Kelley on WCWA in the mid 1970s? Even though the theme was mostly pop music he would sometimes play a very nice, peaceful instrumental peace that had just a touch of choral in it. Kind of a dreamy piece of music. Do any of you recall what the name of this piece was and who the artist was? I have been looking for it for decades with no luck. - More>>

Is Webb just trying to get elected? - For those of you who are not aware Lindsay Webb is running for the Toledo City Council, District 6 seat this November. Up front, I really do not know much about her and we have never personally met although I'm sure she is a pleasant person.

Her website says that she is Point Place Homeowner & 3rd Generation Resident and has a Law Degree from the University of Toledo. In addition, she is an Employment Law Specialist & Advocate for Dislocated Workers and a member of the United Auto Workers (UAW), AFL-CIO.

I Did Something Cool Today... - I have family in town from CA and was trying to line up things to fill each day while they're here. My sister-in-law had been on the internet and had come across the website for the "Motown Museum" in Detroit. I have to admit that the idea didn't overwhelm me at first but I try to stay open to new things so...
Let me tell you, I'm so glad I went. I grew up listening to CKLW in the 60's and Motown was king in those days. To see the actual studios and realize that so many hits came from such a run down, dumpy little place, and most of the stars came from within a 5-mile radius of the studios was most impressive. Equally as impressive was Berry Gordy's story. He built that entire empire from nothing...starting with an $800 loan from his family. He ended up selling it all 30 years later for over $160 million.
The tour guide was outstanding, telling us the known, little-known, and, to me, previously unknown historical bits and pieces.
I would recommend this to any of you who grew up with this music. The tour takes no more than an hour and is modestly priced. Check out their website at MOTOWNMUSEUM.ORG.

Strippers at local political fund-raiser - "A golf outing for the Lucas County Democratic Party landed in the rough after outraged elected officials saw strippers liberally volunteering at the party's annual fund-raiser. Domenic Montalto, the executive director, initially pleaded ignorance. But after learning of Mr. Kemp's comments about the strip clubs' participation, Mr. Montalto changed his answer to "No comment." " - More>>
