things that i have done....golf caddy for years as a kid, waterfowl hunting guide for millie's guide service as a teenager, newspaper photographer for the hearald and news in k. falls, captain dennis on the tiger raft safaris at marine world africa u.s.a rewood city calif, everyday skier and ski instructor,ski coach, waiter, bartender, dishwasher, truck driver, bus driver for mt bach and trailways, grave liner maker, construction worker, entertainer with club med for many years, tour guide in haiti, scuba dive instructor, chief of scuba for club med, cruise ship diver, causeway inspector under the bridge that goes over lake pontchartrain in new orleans,restaurant owner, janitor for the jefferson county schools, oh i even did the deadlest catch in the bearing sea for crab,and radio personality for over 20 tears....what did i miss....

mexico various places,tahiti, moorea, bora bora, turks and caicos, puerto rico, hawaii, and drove the jeepster around the outsidde highway of the usa,....

 

 

the time with club med was by far the greatest part of my life, i did the live the dream, working for the twins is next because of the people i work for and with, ski and scuba teaching are equal to the great feeling i get from working at the twins it's all equal and wonderful, the people i taught how to ski or scuba have a part of me that they will have forever and they will never forget....

 

 

i remember my first privat lesson his name tim runco and he was in cahrge of the electric light parades in disny land and he even offered me a job, i saw him ten years laters and i recognized him and remember his name thats when he offered me the job, all the kids that i coached and now are all adults with i hope good lives...

going over to nyssa this saturday for hunting long drive for a few hours of shooting, it will be a lot of fun though....

have you been listening to all the political ads, they are so messed up, the things and the lies that they are trying to get across to the voters, it's very sad that our nation is so screwed up, again we are the laughing stock of the world. something i found when i was working in all the foreign places that most of the people in the world really hate americans but they sure want to live here....

oct. 5, 2010----the news today, mainly talked about the bullying problem and how to stop it. my opinion is, you will never stop the bullying because we are humans and since we are animals we will always pick on the weak ones it's only natural, so yes i agree we need to stop all violence against each other. my suggestion is to change television and the movies to a more loving and positive emotions. remember gilligans island well the skipper was a bully to gilligan and the reality show on the history channel , pawn stars they bully chumly, the world needs to change and of course it never will and really it will only get worse in the long run, to bad for humanity....

 

the mid term elections are almost here and my suggestion is to vote all incumbents out, fire the bums....

oct. 4, 2010----good weekend, i worked on the swingset for emma, there are five 2 inch dia. metal pipes that you know make up the frame of the swingset and i sanded three of them down to bare metal and the first which is 8 feet long took 5 hours and my hands and neck really took the brunt of that sanding, so on sunday i did two of the 7 foot ones which only took 4 and a half hours, a little work for a smile on a little girls face is worth it....

 

sat is hunting, my dog ZO is ready and in shape, he is the best hunting and companion dog a person could ever have, going up to morrow for opening day--hope it good....

sept. 30, 2010------all over the news this morning is the bullying in our schools, more innocent kids are commiting suicide because of the bullying, how will this ever stop. when i was growing up, i was bullied so much, that i bullied kids who were lesser than me, it is rotten to bully and now another teenager commited suicide because he was filmed by his classmates in a homosexual act and it was put on you tube, theres got to be laws to protect the innocent from you tube or any other social media, you know what i mean----everything is so out of control. we need to go back to basics----no more TV,COMPUTERS,YOU TUBE,CELL PHONES,ETC......the basics is family and family values, the parents need to teach the children, but but but, the parents are not doing their jobs. kids who bully and their parents should be held liable for their actions.......................

 

speaking of people who should be held liable for their actions are the rotten ones who gave us the mess we are in becauuse of the crappy loans and all the other schemes that led us to the economy we are in now.....

 

and the election is coming up, the politicians are saying if you elect me  i will create jobs and turn the economy around--WHATEVER--it's all BS just to get elected......

sept. 29, 2010-----obama did a backyard summit again today, i want him to come to my backyard and talk with me, yea rite he's coming to my house ,i'm not in the class to get him here, and speaking of class where does middle class start and finish......the bast----- are alway talking about middle class, well the middle class is not the backbone of the USA, the people who work in hotels, at fast food places and convience stores you get my drift, we are the workers of america, if it wasn't for us.........

 

when i was a kid i worked in the potato fields of tulelake california with my mom and sister, now you couldn't get a kid or even and adult to work in the fields, too much time playing video games or just waiting for your parents to give you money, or rather get unemployment.

this country used to be the greatest now we are the laughing stock of the world.

 

 

well this weekend looks like it's going to be really nice so get out and do something----....

loveland ski area in col. is almost ready to open, they make snow there and they start as soon as it gets cold,they will open maybe this weekend, it's a great place to ski.

sept 27, 2010-----well good afternoon all, last week we had a major computer problem here at the station our tech man has to rebuild this whole computer because we have been virused, so i did not get to put up anything for last friday.

 

had a good weekend. cleaned house, chopped firewood and stacked it, ran with my dog which we do almost everyday, got an old swingset from a property where i run the owners said it was ok so i grabbed it and i'm going to fix it up with new paint and stuff and then it will go to a little girl named EMMA which is the granddaughter of a very special friend of mine, so i hope EMMA likes it....less than two weeks till pheasent season starts, and my dog is ready.

 

 

wow on the weather hope it stays like this till next summer, but i know we need snow for water, i still like the warmth..................untill tomorrow have a good day.

 

fallan grant thinking of you---------------

sept 23, 2010-----first day of autumn and it's not a bad day in c.o.. looking forward for this coming hunting season my dog is in good shape, we run four miles everyday all summer long so he is ready for the hunt. i hope it's a good year for hunting, lots of birds, i really only go for pheasants and i love it. did a lot of hunting when i was a kid , in fact  i worked for millie's guide service in the 1968 to 1971 years and that was in tulelake, calif. it was great. we hunting on top of a mountain range between lower klamath and tulelake,  shooting at ducks and geese as they fly over the top.....wowwwwwwwww

sept 22, 2010----flipping the channels last nite like i always do and i turned it to dancing with the stars just in time to see hasselhoffffffff get the boot, he was not very good but i'm sure he had a good time, my prediction is that dude the situation will go next and i'm totally digging jennifer grey she has matured very nicely.

 

now i have a question for you----how is it that the people who are running for office always say that they will create jobs, how are they going to do that, so for me i will not vote for that person because he or she cannot create jobs.................

sept. 21,2010----------last saturday i went to a get together/ reunion of mt. b. employees from the past, 1970's,80's. it really was great to see some of these people after such a long time. but it also really bummed me out that a couple of these folks were drinking just like they had when we worked together, you would think that some things would change but i guess not.... here's is a brief list of who was there, hawk,scott,ken,mike, charlie,teddy,bob,terry,denise,becky,christie,faith,steve,jerry,stephane,maureen,wow who else was there, it was so good to see all these people ,way back when we all had such a good time and lots of laughter.  oh i really miss skiing, i only hope that i will get to ski everyday again-------------------------------

sept 20, 2010------hey twinsters: the most wonderful person i have ever met has suggested that i change this page on a regular basis  you know she is right, so here goes------i'm braking away from the normal programming everyday at about 5:25, i'm going to the wall and pulling music that we just never hear, songs that you want to hear but we don't play and i don't know why, it's all so good. if you have any suggestions e-mail me at dshaw@thetwins.com and tell me what you think i should be doing in the afternoons, do you want funny stuff or straight radio,current events,politics,or what???????? and lets see what we can do...............
