Opinion: Thoughts While Shaving

Winter time’s a-coming, more like winter time is here…..high temps for the past couple of days in the low to mid 40s…

The list of teams still in the running for Super Bowl LIII is down to four after past weekend play…  Next weekend action has the New England Patriots traveling to Kansas City for the AFC championship game with the Chiefs, and in the NFC, the LA Rams will be on the road at New Orleans for a game with the Saints.

Early betting favors the Chiefs and the Rams….The Super Bowl will be played in Atlanta…..Sunday, February 3, 2019.

Question for long time local residents.  Remember DooWop Dan?  He was a Deejay/Program Director at WBLA/WGQR, Elizabethtown, years ago, a real broadcasting ‘pro’.  He played oldies and beach.  Dan Greenfield left the area, moved to Georgia and after 15 years in the broadcasting business, enrolled at Mercer University in Macon, Ga., earned a law degree and is now an attorney in Bremen, Georgia.  He still does a weekend oldies and beach show on WGMI, 1440 AM.  Facebook covers the world…..

Still working on website update for BladenOnline…..looking good.  Still an issue with Page views calculations….Visits are strong, Views are down, doesn’t add up….not sure if all info is being recorded.  Those responsible for tabulating are running a week behind…BladenOnline is your best bet for local news, sports, obits and more, in the Bladen County area…..Local folks covering local events for local readers…

Yogi Berra quotes…(former New York Yankee catcher)

I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four….

Never answer an anonymous letter.

Why buy luggage, you only use it when you travel.
