Morning Moonwatch

For me, it wasn’t so much the snow last night but the moon this morning! As I posted earlier on Facebook: I know the moon is a great big hulkin’ ball of cheese and craters but this morning, in the beauty of that frigid, delicate turquoise/white sunrise, I see a gentle winter face glancing down. Had I known, as that deep purple sky and its fast-moving clouds at dawn were about to reveal a Waning Gibbous Moon, I would’ve run out into the snow with a camera. The winter skies over Louisville have been wild for the last 24 hours–hanging…

Driving Home in the Snow

It’s amazing…even with just a little snow on the road people are driving like a blizzard is coming. We sell Louisville Homes luckily we didn’t have any appointments today. I’m not so worried about the snow.. it’s more about the drivers. Bob Sokoler is a former Anchor/Reporter turned Louisville Realtor 7 years ago in Louisville Kentucky.

Go Spud Crazy with J.T. Dockery

J.T. Dockery, known to Seidenfaden’s patrons as the drumming half of the Louisville-based glitterbilly duo The Smacks! and the fried half of acoustic street-busking duo Cheeseburger & Fries, is about to unveil Spud Crazy, a deluxe new graphic novel collaboration between himself and renowned author Nick Tosches.

List of Cancellations: Everything

We are apparently getting the promised snowstorm. As I write this at 2:30, it’s coming down hard outside the window here. JCPS let out high schools at Noon, elementary schools at 1:25, and Luke has already called to see about going sledding. U of L called off classes tonight, and I expect that whatever your event is tonight – fugeddabout it. Which is too bad for the Voice-Tribune people, who have a big party scheduled at the Kentucky Center, and it’s media darling Angie Fenton‘s 36th birthday and all.  She’s probably relieved. It’s canceled. And how’s this for irony. Bellarmine…

Jewish Anticipates More Clinical Trials, More Disease Management and More From Healthcare Reform

Wednesday, Jan. 19th, the  US House of Representatives voted 245-189 to repeal the health care reform legislation that was signed into law last year.  But, we all know, that it was symbolic, because health care changes are on the docket for all Americans and Louisville’s healthcare landscape is preparing. Take Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s HealthCare (JHSMH)—News reports have indicated that its merger, anticipated to be finalized this year, will create the state’s largest health system with 11 acute-care hospitals. The new system would have more than 3,000 physicians. Marty Bonick, the President/CEO of the Jewish Hospital Medical Campus and…

The Louisville version of an EXTREME Makeover

Are you one of the many people living in Louisville wondering if you should remodel parts of the home and stay in it several more years or simply put it on the market and sell it.

As a Louisville Realtor I can tell you the most popular renovations (and the ones that will help sell your home faster) are in the kitchen and master bathroom. Those are the 2…

Living in the High End of The Precipitation Forecast

We all know those people. The ones who call and say, “Did you hear we’re getting 8 inches of snow tomorrow?”  In actuality the forecast is 1-3 inches but there could be “bands” of heavier precip 100 miles north and so that person assumes it’s going to snow butt deep to a buffalo in their back yard.  Such is the situation in the metro today as one station I watch is calling for 3-6 inches of snow while another is calling for 1-3.  At the end of the day neither forecast is crippling.  Neither amount would, say, prohibit you from…

About that “Army of Citizen Journalists” Comment

The topic was the future of journalism, so I took a 12-year-old along to see how the world of news fits into his worldview. After listening to a panel of locals, Luke is not in the least interested. I’d be surprised if the meeting inspired any of the dozen or so students in attendance to set their sights on this new and changing profession. In fact, there was a serious discussion about whether journalism is a profession or an activity. The panel, held at St. X and organized by the local SPJ, was lightly attended, maybe because U of L…

16 Bad Movies

Maybe you’ve seen Facebook notes where your friends have to seemingly instantaneously come up with five, ten, sixteen, or even twenty movies that they know, love, or remember. Let’s turn this on its head, shall we? How about sixteen movies that you dislike, or hate, or there’s no redeeming the time and/or money spent watching them. Here’s my list: “Untraceable” – Diane Lane and Collin Hanks couldn’t save this torture porn masquerading as a drama. “Running Scared” – A movie so bad that Entertainment Weekly said “Paul Walker deserves better. The only reason to watch this is to see everything…
