With the Inauguration just hours away, Donald Trump is en route to Washington, D.C. 

- He'll hold meetings this morning, then spend the afternoon on the phone getting the White House Gas, Electricity and Cable transferred over to his name. 

*****

Meanwhile the Obamas are doing what most families do the day before they move...

Donald Trump has been urged to dance with Caitlyn Jenner, who is a Republican, at his Inaugural Ball on Friday night to prove that he is in touch with America's LGBT community.

In keeping with tradition, President Obama will leave a letter of advice for the incoming President in the desk in the Oval Office.

*****

Michael Moore has organized a protest on the sidewalk outside Trump Tower in NYC today.

- He was going to hold the protest in D.C., but he wanted to make sure there would be plenty of Hot Dog and Giant Soft Pretzel Carts nearby. 

*****

On a serious note... 

No matter how you feel about the incoming administration - or the outgoing one - I hope that we experience a safe and peaceful transition of power tomorrow, and in the weeks and months to come. Yes, we have differences. Yes, we look at things from a wide variety of vantage points. And yes, this has been a tumultuous and emotional time in our History.

But first and foremost, we are Americans. This is not the first time our citizenry has been divided, nor is it the first time our nation has faced seemingly insurmountable challenges both at home and around the world. But it's time to do what we have done since 1776 - Put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward. Together. Shoulder to Shoulder. America is, and always will be, a work in progress. By definition, that makes us "imperfect". But our best hope for making positive progress begins with us being respectful of each other's opinions. 

Perhaps it was times like these that inspired our insightful forefathers (and foremothers!) to name this great land "The UNITED States of America". 

Have a great day, I'll see you back here tomorrow, and God Bless America.

I don't even know how to begin to thank you for the incredible outpouring of responses to my Anniversary post about my wonderful wife Gail. We were both astounded by the number of "Likes", "Loves" and "Shares", and your comments... Truly amazing. Your good wishes, stories about listening to the show, personal remembrances, and those of you who said you gained hope and inspiration from Gail's battle with Cancer meant so much to us.  We not only read every one... but printed them out so we will have them to look back on. There was even one man who said that our having six daughters made him decide to get a vasectomy after he and his wife had only two! Priceless. Please know that you all made two kids from Buffalo smile. (And yes... mine is still crooked... I just hide it with the mustache!) 

And now on to our attempt at a Christmas Podcast...

You may have noticed that we've had some technical difficulties of late, so we brought in our IT guy to do his thing and make sure everything was back on track during the Podcast. The result? Well... it recorded, but it's a bit raspy. At least we're making progress! 

Jackie and I attempt to sing some Christmas Music (key word: "attempt") and I reveal which of the many novelty Holiday songs I played on the radio was my favorite (even thought some listeners thought it was "Non PC"). I also share my proudest achievement in high school (other than actually graduating!), and we talk about a few great movies and one terrible one. 

It's short and sweet... think of it as an "Audio Elf". 

Have a great day, and again, thank you so much! 

See you back here Christmas Day...

On this day...a few years back... (ahem) I had the honor of marrying Gail Nulton, my high school sweetheart and the girl of my dreams. I was 16 and she was 15 when we met. Four and a half years later, we "took the plunge" as they say, and said our "I Do's" on a cold day in our hometown of Kenmore, NY.  The photo above was snapped at her parent's house right after we returned from our brief honeymoon in NYC. Thus the slightly nervous smiles on both of our faces!! The two of us knowing that the two of them knew, that we knew, that they knew, well... you get the picture. Those were different days... 

Gail, the kindest, most giving woman I've ever known, cheered me on as we zig-zagged across the country from one radio station to another, finally landing in Detroit, as I pursued my dream of making it in Radio. And always with a smile on her face. (Even when we moved to Baltimore and I was fired after 5 weeks - just as she finished hanging the curtains!) 

Along the way, she gave me (at least I think they're mine) 6 beautiful girls. Over the years, lots of people have said, "Dick... 6 Girls! You're amazing!" and I always reply, "Hey... it took Gail 54 months... It's only took me 6 minutes!" 

Our beautiful girls went on to bless us with eight incredible grandchildren - 2 Girls - and, unbelievably, 6 Boys! And I think it says a lot about Gail that everyone in our family lives within 20 minutes of our house. 

Our life together has been an incredible adventure... meeting John F. Kennedy... our home movies with The Beatles taken when we brought them to Cincinnati in 1964... Gail singing a duet with Regis Philbin a few years ago at Andiamo's... and so much more.  

We have been lucky enough to take wonderful vacations... with our family... with friends... and sometimes, just the two of us. 

We have faced down health crises both with our kids and ourselves. In fact, next month marks 20 years since Gail was diagnosed with advanced Ovarian Cancer and given a 20% chance of making it 5 years. 

Two decades later, she is here, next to me as always, celebrating the Anniversary of our Wedding. 

This time of year, with Christmas just days away, you often come across "It's A Wonderful Life" on TV. 

And I can tell you... Thanks to the strong, beautiful, funny, generous, charitable, thoughtful and loving young girl sitting next to the guy with the crooked smile... mine, indeed, has been... and continues to be... A Wonderful Life. 

Happy Anniversary Gail. I Love You more than you can ever know!

Giraffes have been put on the world's "Endangered Species Watch List". 

- Apparently they're doing a lot of "necking" but are never getting to the "reproducing" part. 

*****

A study by Rover.com found that the growing trend is for dog owners to give their pooches human names. 

- If only celebrities would catch on to this trend with their kids. 

*****

A University of Michigan study revealed that parents spend an average of 9 hours and 22 minutes everyday using media and technology. 

- It would have been longer, but they had to take a break to yell at their kids to stop playing with their phones and go play outside.

Have a great day and I'll see you back here Friday!
