I was nominated for Tucson's Most Influential Man

"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it people like me." - Stuart Smalley

I was nominated for Tucson's Most Influential Man in Arizona Foothills Magazine.  (Thanks to Twitter Queen Jessica Northey for the nomination - http://twitter.com/jessicanorthey )

There are some big names on that list including Tucson car czar Jim Click, Sir Paul McCartney (who used to have a house in Tucson), restaurant pimp Sam Fox, and hair guru Emery Nicoletti.  A few names in media are there too.

24 years on the radio and endless efforts Tweeting on Twitter from the bathroom have landed me this amazing recognition.  Its an honor to be nominated.

Winning is done by public voting.  I'd better start kissing hands and shaking babies to get some votes.

You can vote by clicking here.  You can vote once a day so I'm begging.  Voting closes in April.  If I win I'll let you touch my hair as often as you want.

I never win these public voting things.  But a girl can dream.

The day the laptop died

Its amazing how much I rely on my laptop computer.

I schedule music for Mega with it, station website, social networking, photos, video, and lots of other work.

I bought a new purple Blackberry on Saturday.  I had just completed a data upload to it from my laptop when the laptop just shut off.  It has been dead ever since.

After whining about this major catastrophe on Facebook and Twitter I did get some help from my Facebook friend Jeff who suggested I call HP after he was concerned the motherboard died.

Calling HP support turned into a 90 minute ordeal but they were as helpful as they could be.  They guided me through taking some panels off the bottom, reseating some chip thingys, plugging and unplugging things, nothing worked.  Still dead.

My brother Mike saw one of my Tweets and offered to help.  He's the man!

I sent it off to Texas today where he lives so he can work on it.  I hope he's fast!  I'm dying over here!

Ken Carr meets the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile

The Wienermobile visited Tucson today at Park Place Mall.

The Kenparazzi photos!

I gave the Wienermobile a hug!

My co-worker Rob Cook and I are impressed with how big it is.
