Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

Are you being used? Here are signs he may be using you -- viaMadamenoire.com.
HE ISN'T TRUE TO HIS WORDS
This man knows how to speak to your heart, and you love the things that he says to you, but as we all know, actions speak louder than words. No matter how his words make you feel, if he isn't proving them to you and living up to them, his words hardly mean a thing at all.
HE'S PRONE TO CANCELLING PLANS
When you two get to spend time together, things go pretty well, so you're always excited to hang out. But, when you make plans to spend time with him, he's often the one that has to cancel the plans, and most of the time his excuses aren't very good ones. Continuously cancelled plans are a good sign that a guy is using you.
YOU PAY FOR EVERYTHING
Nowadays going dutch isn't unheard of, and in some relationships, it's pretty common to split things 50/50. When it comes to this man, you pay for everything, even small things such as a coffee date at the local cafe. This man is broke all of the time, with no real reason behind the lack of money. A guy who is using you is likely to avoid spending money on you.
HE'S ONLY AROUND WHEN HE NEEDS YOU
When it's convenient for you, this man shows up or makes time to contact you. If he needs a ride to work, needs a lunch, or needs a few dollars to pay his cell phone bill, he's contacting you as quickly as possible. However, when he isn't in need of anything you can provide, rarely do you hear from him and rarely is he around. When a guy is using you, he'll usually only show up when it's convenient.
HE'S STILL SOMEWHAT OF A MYSTERY
You two have been together for a few weeks if not longer, and while you've told him everything there is to know about you, when it comes to his past and his life, some of it is a big question mark. If this man isn't one to share personal information about himself to you, then something is definitely up. Either he's hiding things from you or he flat out just doesn't want you to know the real him.
HE ONLY COMES TO SEE YOU AT NIGHT
It's not uncommon or unheard of for a man to want to spend some time with you after a night out with the boys. However, if it's become a pattern that he only spends time with you at night, after he's liquored up, there is definitely something more going on. A man who is only interested in spending time with you at night, and after drinking, definitely isn't in it for you.
HE RARELY DOES ANYTHING SPECIAL FOR YOU
In a relationship, it's all about give and take. On your man's birthday, you shower him with gifts, and you're the type of woman to buy him a present here and there, just because. On the other hand, this guy rarely gives you anything that shows he cares about you. If you're with a guy who can't treat you to something nice every once-in-a-while, this is a huge sign that he's soaking up all he can.
HE RARELY INVITES YOU OUT
His family has a monthly birthday celebration, and you're never invited. A big group of his coworkers and their significant others go out for a night on the town, and for some reason or another, your man goes alone. When a guy doesn't invite you out to spend time with other people, it's a huge sign that you're being used. Simply, he sees no reason to introduce you to friends, family, or coworkers because you're just not that important to him.
AFFECTION DOESN'T COME EASY
For some guys, showing a lot of affection and emotions can be awkward, but as time passes, this becomes less and less of an issue, as he adapts. However, this man rarely shows you affection. Getting a hug or a passionate kiss from him is a rare occurrence and when it does happen, it leaves you wanting something more from it. The only affection you get is when you two are doing the deed, and even then, something is missing.
YOU RARELY GO TO PUBLIC PLACES
You two spend most of your dates at home, and when you do go out in public, it's never in your home town. When a man makes excuses as to why he doesn't want to spend time out and about with you, it's definitely time to start asking yourself, and him, why. A guy who is using you is likely to avoid being spotted with you in public.
HE DOESN'T CONSIDER YOUR FEELINGS
No matter how much you tell this guy that certain things make you tick or make you sad, he doesn't seem to take it in and consider your thoughts and feelings. Instead, he does what he wants to do without ever stopping to think about how his actions may make you feel. One of the biggest signs that a guy is using you is the fact that he couldn't care less about your feelings.
TALKING ABOUT THE FUTURE GOES NOWHERE
A guy who is using you is likely to be one who hates talking about the future. When a man is in it for the sex or for the money, he isn't going to be one to want to make future plans, let alone talk about the future. When you mention where the relationship is going and what you two can do in the future as a couple, he either has something else to do, changes the subject, or ignores you altogether.
COMMUNICATION IS LIKE PULLING TEETH
This is true for all forms of communication. When you text him in the morning, you're lucky to hear from him later that day, or if you call, he may return your call a couple of hours later. Communication is needed in a relationship, but this man refuses to participate. On the flip side, he will contact you the minute he needs something. All red flags that he is nothing but a user.
HE BLAMES YOU FOR THINGS
When something goes wrong, this man is somehow able to push the blame onto you. No matter what the problem is, some way or another, this guy is able to pinpoint you as the one who caused it to happen. When a guy does nothing but blame you for the bad things in his life, he's truly only putting you through emotional blackmail. Leave this guy and let him suffer through his own issues.
Is your love life making you fat? Here are Madamenoire.com list of 14 ways love could be making you fat.
"IT'S JUST ONE DATE" SYNDROME
When you're on a date, and the guy really wants to share dessert, or insists you two split a cheesy appetizer, it's easy to tell yourself, "It's just one date. Show him that you're game for anything." But if you're dating actively, you have lots of "just one date" nights, and before you know it you're having dessert more often than you're not, and your tiny black dress is too tiny. Whatever your diet rules are, stick to them, even on dates.
"I DON'T WANT TO BE ONE OF 'THOSE GIRLS'"
You don't want to be the uptight, finicky eater that men make fun of. You want to show that you're not worried about your weight and won't obnoxiously count calories wherever you go. Fine, but watch the pounds pack on. Look; if you're weight conscious, that's okay! If a man loses interest in you over that, he was not worth dating.
You always order a salad, and now that you're in a relationship or dating a lot, you still do. But now there is another person across the table with a stack of ribs. That's when the "it's just one bite" mentality kicks in. And you tell yourself it's okay to eat some of his food, so long as you ordered something different. But a few bites of the fatty foods men tend to like can add up to a couple hundred calories quick! Stick to what you ordered.
RUSHING HOME TO YOUR GUY
This especially happens at the very beginning of relationships - just when you've made it "official" and you no longer have to play it cool, only asking to see him once or twice a week. You both admit you want to be around each other all the time! And you are. Including the hour you would spend at the gym because instead, when you get off work, you rush to your new boyfriend.
STAYING IN BED WITH YOUR GUY
If you're a morning workout person, apply the above issue to the mornings when you wake up in bed with your adorable new boyfriend, and instead of get up an hour early to hit the gym, you stay in bed for some cuddling or morning sex. And yes, sex is a workout, but it doesn't burn nearly as many calories as the elliptical does. Sorry.
ALL DATES REVOLVE AROUND FOOD
They really do when you think about it! It's always meeting at a new cupcake place, or trying a new bar with a great mixologist, or grabbing dinner or getting ice cream. Try to get more creative about dates. Take a class together, go on a hike or see a show (and skip the popcorn).
"WE MAY AS WELL FINISH THE BOTTLE" SYNDROME
When you're single, or simply dining alone, and want a glass of wine, you have one or two, but you feel no obligation to drink half the bottle because you know you can make the whole bottle last for a few nights. When you're drinking with a guy though, there's always just one or two glass-worth's left in the bottle, and you say, "We may as well drink it now, since there's so little left." But that's still an extra glass or two every night.
TAKEOUT VS. COOKING FOR TWO
Takeout is the "cheaper" alternative to eating at restaurants all the time when you're in a relationship, but don't feel confident enough in your cooking to cook for two people most nights of the week. But takeout is rarely as healthy as the food you could make yourself at home, and you usually face a dilemma similar to that with the shared bottle of wine - you figure you should just finish all the food, or else you'll throw it away.
THE BOOB TO STOMACH RATIO ISSUE
Sometimes gaining weight can be a vicious cycle. Often, in the beginning of a relationship, we put on a little weight for any of the aforementioned reasons. And when you put on just a little, your boobs grow. Of course your boyfriend loves your new curves, says something, and this just confirms that you should stick to your new eating habits. But don't forget, the stomach is always close behind the boobs when it comes to weight gain.
YOU'RE STAYING IN MORE
When you know you have to go socialize, move around for hours and look good, you watch how much you eat for dinner. You don't want to deal with digestive discomfort or bloating when you're at a bar, plus you need to squeeze into a tight dress. But when you're in a relationship, you start skipping a lot of social events. And that's when you tell yourself, "I can eat a few more bites - I have no one to impress tonight."
MEN CAN EAT MORE, AND DO!
Most men need more calories than women do on a daily basis. It's not fair, but it's a fact. But usually when we dine with others, we decide how much we're allowed to eat based on how much they are eating. So of course, next to a man eating a triple serving of fettuccine Alfredo, you feel pretty good about your little double serving of it. But take that bowl of cheesy carbs out of that situation, and it's still a heaping bowl of cheesy carbs.
At least when you're having lunch or dinner dates, you can stick to a regular schedule of consumption. But people also love their coffee dates and drink dates. So then you're having breakfast, lunch, dinner and a couple of cocktails and/or a sugary frappuccino.
SPORTS BARS AND GAME DAY FOOD
This only applies to the women dating sports fans. To those of you dating the rare man oblivious to what's happening on TV on Sundays, consider your waistline lucky; sports seasons are fattening! There is a lot of joining friends at bars on Sundays for pitchers of beer and plates of chicken wings. Or your guy might invite all his sports-watching buddies to your place to watch a game, and put out a spread of nachos and pizza. This can happen every week for months if you're with a true sports fan.
HIS SWEET GIFTS ARE TOO SWEET
Your guy is always thinking of you and bringing you little surprises: how sweet. Those surprises are always a box of chocolate, or a pint of your favorite ice cream, or a cupcake from your favorite bakery: how sweet...in a very dangerous way. Tell him how incredibly thoughtful this is of him, but that he needs to mix in some zero-calorie gifts.
According to unconfirmed reports, Pebbles is set to sueLeft Eye's estate over money that the late TLC star owed her back in 1992. Pebbles allegedly told a VH1 correspondent last week, "Just cuz she not here doesn't mean she ain't gotta pay what she owe. Everybody pays what they owe. Ask TLC." Pebbles added, "TLC just did that BIG movie...hell, they can pay!"
When asked if the negative portrayal had something to do with the suit, Pebbles said, "It's just business."
8 SIMPLE WAYS TO COMFORT OR PLEASE YOUR WOMAN/DURING THOSE “NOT SO GOOD TIMES”
She's giving you the silent treatment:
Say, "I love you and smile innocently."
Her day was rough too:
Screaming where's dinner? Not a good look "You know what would be? That one dish you may be good at cooking, now’s the time.
Find out at whom she's yelling. If it's someone else, let her yell. If it's you, say, "Let's have a drink and talk about it."
Her chin is quivering caused by some hurt, disappointment or let down:
Immediately hug her, and hold her until she decompresses and is ready to talk.
You’re in the car, but she's still getting ready:
Remember that she just wants to look her best, hit her with a wow and say you’re amazing to behold.
She's running a temperature:
Two Tylenol, fluids, place a cool towel on her head, and sit (don’t lie) by her side. Sitting upright demonstrates you taking command over her illness and reassures you’re diligently watching over her.
She won't have sex with you:
Don’t leave the bed, instead give her a back rub and kiss her neck softly until she falls asleep.
She won't return your phone calls:
Leave/send her a hand written love letter and one rose.
Why isn't she answering your calls? New research out of Australia finds that women play hard to get to make men want them as well to test a man's commitment. Researchers explain that a man's willingness to keep pursuing her tells her that the man actually wants a relationship with her. One research notes, "Women have to weed out the men who are just interested in them for sex." Researchers say that if a man is just looking for a one night stand, it's unlikely he'll do the work required when a lady plays hard-to-get. (Men's Health)
