Arnie "Woo-Woo" Ginsburg

“Happy Woo Year,” we heard over the airwaves each New Years’ Eve, as the radio signal bounced our way from Boston’s WMEX. Arnie “Woo Woo” Ginsburg was on the air and all was well with the world. At least, if you were under 20. Any age older than that, all bets were off.

is an interview.

Anyway, happy whatever year from the staff and management of Things At King’s. We’ve been a busy little bunch around here, writing a series of articles for national distribution and I couldn’t do that plus keep up with the blog. Blogging doesn’t pay the bills so, while I have integrity, I’m no fool, either.

I went to the world’s least exciting New Year’s Eve party: sparkling grape juice and chocolate chip cookies. Hey, this kid’s not going to pile into a telephone pole or another car on his way home. I’d rather grape juice than something harder and lose my judgement with a thousand pounds of steel under me.

And as far as “Click It Or Ticket” goes, I think it would be more effective as “Click It Or Go Through The Windshield.” Seen enough of that on the evening news. “Ejected from the vehicle” means there was no seatbelt and they cratered.

Ewwww. Grape juice with chocolate chip cookies? Everyone knows you wash them down with milk---preferably chocolate milk.

Happy New Year to the blogger, and all his readers.
