My Thoughts For The Week Of January 2nd

Winnipeg, Manitoba – Hello 2017! I really hope it’s a great year for you!! I plan on making it my best yet!!!

It can only get better for Mariah Carey after her sad performance on ABC TV just minutes before the ball dropped in Times Square. Here’s my favorite tweet from the Twitter storm that followed…

And Of course I had to weigh in myself…

MyToba has signed another star to its lineup. My old radio pal Brian Barkley will be writing opinion pieces on a weekly basis. Great to have you on the team bud! Click here to read his first contribution from a couple days ago.

This is funny! There’s a new radio station in Tampa, Florida called 98.7 Donald FM. It only plays songs to do with money. And I assume no Mexican music. Winnipeg also has a new radio station, Peggy @ 99.1. No announcers yet but lotsa music, everything from 80’s pop to 90’s hip hop to today’s top music. Good luck Peggy!

Happy birthday to Winnipeg’s first baby of the new year! No given names yet but she was born at 12:57 AM at Health Sciences Centre. She weighed in at five pounds, three ounces and 19 inches. Congrats Wakeman family!

Congrats as well to Kristopher Eisbrenner! The Altona man won $1 million on a Set For Life scratch ticket. He bought the winning ticket at the local Co-Op Gas Bar. Eisbrenner is the 12th Manitoban to win at least $1 million in 2016.

Have a great week!
