Sweetest Song

June 25, 2010

We have all endured songs sung people who had no business singing. Off key, forgotten lyrics, and horrible presentation. We have all been blessed by people who not only can sing a song but know how to minister it as well. Your heart is touched, you may shed a tear, or be filled with praise. […]

Except the Lord Build the House

June 23, 2010

Well, my wife and I and another couple went house hunting last night. We walked through five homes, all of which were located in a very nice subdivision. None of the houses were older than 7 or 8 years old. The first home we went into had that moldy, musty smell. There was water damage […]

Home Improvements or Home Replacement

June 22, 2010

Haggai 2:9 “The glory of this latter home shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of hosts; and in this place will I give you peace saith the Lord of hosts.” Remember when we were kids and a game got messed up we just did a RE-DO? Adult life can be a […]

Drive Thru Dilema

June 21, 2010

When I was a kid in the early to mid 1970’s a trip to McDonald’s was a treat. The closet one to our house was almost an hour away in the City of Schenectady. There were two. The one we went to was inside the Mohawk Mall. I can still remember the aroma of heat […]

Happy Father’s Day

June 20, 2010

As a kid growing up I remember that my dad was a cross between Archie Bunker and Pa Ingolls from Little House on the Prairie. Most of the time I was convinced that the writers from All in the Family came to our house, listened to my dad, and then wrote the lines for Caroll […]

Weekend Update

Sunday is Father’s Day. Make sure and let your Dad know you’re thinking about him. I did an entire broadcast dedicated to my dad this week. On Monday I will expose something bigger than the Gulf Oil Crisis on the DRIVE @ 5 … well maybe not as big BUT it needs to dealt with […]

What MEN Need

June 17, 2010

Okay, ladies here it is. You’ve written and theorized about it in your magazines, you’ve cried about it on Oprah, and you have fictionalized it on soap operas and in romance novels. What do men want? What do men need? STOP asking your female friends … especially the divorced ones. Men are actually pretty simple: […]

Erosion of the American Male

June 16, 2010

Sylvester Stallone gave an interview just after his latest installmentĀ of the Rambo series was released. He said, “where are the men?” Sly was lamenting over the fact that in Hollywood there was/is a dearth of males with manhood. The Rocky-Rambo action film icon stated that today’s action hero doesn’t get his hands dirty anymore because […]

Seventeen Years Ago…

June 11, 2010

I married Shari Jean Gottung. It was twenty years ago this July I first laid eyes on her. I was preaching a 4th of July campmeeting when in walked this cute, petite blonde. I asked the host pastor if he knew who she was. He told me she lived in the area and was a […]

Off the Cuff

June 10, 2010

On Wednesday nights I work with children’s ministry at our church. By the time I get off the air from the Drive @ 5, do my wrap up at the studio, race home and get my own kids, and then go back to Titusville … I usually arrive just as the Kidz Zone is starting. […]
