Being a TV Weatherman just turned sucky!

Do you watch local news or national news?

I hardly ever watch CNN or FOX NEWS, I just find it to be droll, it's so "corporate" whereas the local channels are little more "casual Friday" Especially Channel 9 - WGN in the Morning. The News team is crack ups, there's the really cute Larry Potash, the hilarious Robin Baumgarten who comes across as one of those people that you could hang out with on a Saturday afternoon drinking Margarita's and chasing boys, there's the hottie frat boy Sportscaster Pat Tomasulo (all I can say is that the picture on his bio page doesn't do him justice at all.) I don't even like Sports but I'll watch it when he reads it. There's the "He's Gotta be Gay" Entertainment Report Dean Richards, he's got a great voice and you know he would just camp it up! I saw him at Costco once, it wasn't until after I cruised him that I realized who he was....oops... Finally there's the Weather Man....the uber hottie Paul Konrad....oh daddy!

It's fun to watch them because they have fun doing the show, they do a very professional job but you can tell they're having fun while they do it. Roseanne Tellez used to be on channel 9 and she was hilarious, but then she got a job with Channel 2 and suddenly she can't laugh any's sad to see.

Back to the Weatherman, the whole crew likes to have fun doing the show and lots of times they'll play around with Paul while he's doing the weather on the Greenscreen wall. You know things like projecting a big bug or things like that, just funny things.

Well this evening I was watching the 6:00 News and Tom Skilling was doing the weather....only he was in front of a big plasma screen, he wasn't in front of the greenscreen.

I just hope to goodness that Paul Konrad stands up and tells them he's not gonna use the plasma for the morning show.......they'll ruin what fun it was to actually grow up and be a Weatherman on TV. I mean why else would you grow up to do the Weather, although it is a great job - you can be really wrong and people still like you. I wish I could be right 50% of the time at work and my boss would be cool with it.....hey........that's what I wanna be when I grow up...A Weatherman!

So much for my theory that all gay men know who else is gay. You're right about Dean. We met him one evening and TMS was like a smitten teen, he was so star struck. (That's becasue we are big fans of the morning show, not because TMS is considering an alternative lifestyle.)

We should start a new club scene dance trend called "The Weatherman" with a lot of great sweeping hand motions...

Dean Richards is gay. He's always Emceeing at different gay-related events around town, and is a very vocal supporter in the gay community.

Now if we could just make sure that Larry Potash and Paul Konrad were on our team, too... we'd have quite a party goin' on. I've always thought they were hotties. I remember seeing Larry Potash at The Bagel a few years back and trust me, he's every bit as hot in person as he is on TV.

They've always had hotties on that morning show. Back when I used to watch morning TV (before I had my current job), I watched the show regularly. ABC News' weekend anchor Bill Weir was WGN's morning sports anchor back then... oh my lord, with Paul, Larry and Bill it was just hotties all around. Sigh.

Larry Potash is smokin' hot.

And he looks like he's packin' a big one, which I'd like to see up close!

Everything about horse betting

Horse racing's traditions give it unique flavor and character, but to be successful, it must be willing to evolve to catch up to the present and to meet the future. We most certainly hope that it does.

The style of racing, the distances and the type of events varies very much by the country in which the race takes place, and many countries offer different types of horse races.

What makes this event so difficult to win? Several factors have to be considered. First there's the age of the horses. Triple Crown races are limited to 3 year olds, juveniles, all of whom officially have their birthday on January 1st of each year. By the first Saturday in May (the running of the Kentucky Derby), though most of the contestants will have actually reached their third birthday, they won't realize their full growth and potential until their fourth or fifth years.

Now that Ah Day has passed on the Preakness, eight other horses will be looking to spoil Barbaro's bid for the second leg of the Triple Crown. Two are returning from their Derby bids and six more that skipped the Run for the Roses.

Traditional banking has always been a brick and mortar building where you go to deposit or withdraw money.

This banking Internet option has been very popular not only for customers who want to have some control over their account without having to go to the bank but for banks as well whose man hours have been freed up from performing simple tasks like balance inquiries, account transfers, and the like because the customer does it himself with banking Internet.

This is the truest form of banking Internet simply because these banks only exist online.

When you utilize banking Internet options you are able to access your account, move money, pay bills, and any number of things from any computer with Internet access worldwide.

Historically banks were institutions that held your money under lock and key.

Traditional banks have monitored the popularity and growth of the internet, and realising customers wanted greater control of their affairs, have created their own internet banking web sites.

To help the growth and assist customers to make the change, many traditional banks offer minimal fee or completely free transfers to help customers migrate to their online banking service.

Paying bills, transferring funds and just plain monitoring your account are all possible with minimal stress whether you are ravelling, holidaying or working anywhere in the world.
