My "guest Van" this morning was Brian Gongol. Brian does a couple of shows on WHO Radio....The Wise Guys on Saturday afternoon and The Brian Gongol Show on Sunday nights. We talked about the new "Surface" tablet coming out this fall from Microsoft with its own keyboard attached on the cover. It's supposed to work on the new Windows 8. Brian also told us about the new weather alert system coming out where you'll be notified about tornado warnings, tsunami warnings, flash flood warnings, etc. on your cell phone. You'll need a newer cell phone to receive them. You don't sign up for the service, you'll just automatically receive them. We also talked about getting an antivirus program for your "smart phone".
Our special guest this morning was Nancy Macklin with Tone's Spices. She wanted to remind everyone that the deadline for the Tone's Cinnamon Roll contest at the Iowa State Fair is coming up on July 1st. Just go to www.iowastatefair.org to get signed up to participate. The grand prize is $3,000.00! There are three categories...regular frosted cinnamon rolls, caramel sticky rolls and the non-traditional cinnamon rolls. If you caan make a "mean" cinnamon roll, you won't want to miss out on this one!
Join me tomorrow along with my "guest Van", Simon Conway! We get to meet the "fun" Simon! We'll find out about his upcoming trip to the USS Iowa and more! Also, we'll have more tickets to the Goodguys Heartland Nationals to give away. Tune in to win.
