Welcome to the weekend! It’s been raining a lot recently - not just the wet stuff - but giant hunks of a “climate satellite”.  The man you see on this page, a relative of one of our e-mail club members (who for obvious reasons didn’t want to be identified) shows how he prepared for the event. In this weeks edition of our Podcast, we talk about that, plus, (GASP), women finally being being allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia… in four years! Also… how much would you pay for a roll of toilet paper rejected by the Beatles? And why al-Qaeda has “unfriended” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on facebook! 

Also… I give you details of “The Sheild On The Field” celebrity softball game I’ll be part of, a week from today, on Saturday, October 8th, from noon to 3pm at Clark Park by the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit.  It’s the official kick-off of the 25th Annual Salvation Army Bed & Bread Radiothon - the one I proudly founded and hosted for 23 years!  There’ll be hot dogs, face painting, and even a bounce house - and it’s all free!  Scroll down past the guy wearing a pot on his head for a look at the flyer.

Hope you enjoy the Podcast and GO TIGERS!
