The trouble with taking a week off is that the number of news stories that are online are too many to go through, still 94 in my inbox to review for next weeks show. Some very important stories on the show which will surprise the heck out of you! Plus we’re giving away a coffee pack from the Backroads Coffee Shop in Hayward Wisconsin where they roast their own coffee beans. I ran on a pot of this a day last week on my vacation. Enjoy the show everyone!
