Nothing is better on a hot summer day than ice cream! I actually prefer malts and shakes, but honestly I don't think I've ever turned down any variety of ice cream in my life! We used to make homemade ice cream when I was a kid and it was a fun, but long process. You had to hand crank your maker and add ice and rock salt etc As usual, I couldn't sleep one night and came across videos of street vendors in Thailand and their process of making ice cream. In this video you can see exactly how they do it. Enjoy!!
My family and I will be going on vacation in a few weeks and we will be flying to our destination. Now when I was younger, we never flew anywhere. My Dad and Clark W. Griswold had the same idea of taking these long road trips that took 2 weeks and you got to see a lot of America. That was fun... then. Not anymore for me. Flying is now my preferred method of getting anywhere. If I had a plane I would fly it to work everyday. But here's the kicker, I'm actually deathly afraid of heights and I'm claustrophobic so you would think that flying would be my least favorite thing in the world. Well for some reason It doesn't bother me. My children on the other hand have never flown and are naturally nervous. So to help ease their fears I've shown them every video and article I can to get them ready for their first flight. The best video I've seen so far is the one below. It explains in great detail exactly what will happen when you fly. So if you are on the fence about taking a flight somewhere, give it a view and maybe it can help you out.
Yesterday was Father's Day and if you're a dad like me, you probably spent the afternoon eating way too much and watching the U.S. Open on television. While much of the focus was on how horrible the golf course was set up by the USGA, the final few holes of the tournament were amazing. Masters champion Jordan Spieth birdied the 72nd hole and held a one shot lead over Dustin Johnson. Johnson proceeded to get his 2nd shot on the par 5 within 12 feet of the hole. All he had to do was sink the putt and win his first major. He proceeded to miss the putt. No big deal. If he could make his 2nd putt, he would force an 18 hole playoff with Spieth on Monday morning. HE MISSED THAT PUTT as well! It was difficult to watch as Johnson's girlfriend Paula Gretzky, her dad Hockey great Wayne Gretzky and Dustin's new born baby were all on the final hole and you could just see their hearts break on national TV. This is not the first time Dustin Johnson has lost his way on the final hole of a major. Back at the PGA Championship in 2010 he was given a 2 stroke penalty on the 72nd hole for grounding his club in a bunker. Dustin Johnson has had his share of troubles off the course as well. He was "suspended" in July of last year for the rest of the 2014 PGA season. He has the reputation of being a party dude and has battled drugs and alcohol his whole career. According to most sources he has finally grown up and has put those demons behind him. I had a good time watching the U.S. Open, and I really hope that Dustin Johnson wins a bunch of major championships in his career. Hopefully he can use this as a learning experience and can move forward in his personal life and be the best Husband and Father he can be. Because at the end of the day, being clean and sober and having a wonderful family will exceed any joy that winning a golf tournament can ever give him.
My name is Justin Pettit and I was born and raised in Sequoyah County. I moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2000 and lived there until 2014. While in Northwest Arkansas I started working in Real Estate and was very successful earning multiple awards, but I got burned out and wanted to do what I always wanted and that was RADIO! So I went to broadcasting school and after graduating I began working in Sports radio. While in that market I covered all of the University of Arkansas football, basketball and baseball teams as well as the Northwest Arkansas Naturals minor league baseball team. But I am glad to be back home and working for The Mix! My wife Jennifer and I have 3 Kids, 2 dogs and make our home in the Central area.
