Doug Shares The Tradition and History of Confetti Eggs [VIDEO]

Last weekend was Easter, and I brought up one of my family traditions, where we make confetti eggs. These eggs are the shell filled with confetti that you crack over people's heads for good luck, and of course, just for fun.  I brought this up on the air on 92.3 BOB-FM and Denny Perkins thought this was some crazy thing that we just came up with, just like he thought about St. Nicholas Day.  I can assure you, this is far from just a Sokolowski made up tradition.

SR-71: A Plane I’d Love To See Fly

I have always considered myself a good Air Force Brat as my dad served in the Air Force for over 20 years. While I only was at three bases, Castle Air Force Base in California; Ramstein Air Force Base, Germany; and Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, I got to see a lot of great planes.  I love the B-2 Stealth Bomber, A-10 Thunderbolt; T-38 that are stationed at Whiteman. I have enjoyed going to air shows to see everything from the old biplanes to the Mustangs to the F-4 Phantom to the F-16s.  However, I was a watching a movie Turbulent Skies and got to thinking that I never have seen an SR-71 fly in person.
