Joseph’s Weekends Are Full Of Class!

IMG_20181118_183221416
On November 18, 2018, Joseph was watching news anchor Paul Martino and weatherman Ray Petelin on KDKA’s Sunday evening newscast.

On November 18, 2018, I was watching KDKA’s Sunday evening newscast for about 20 minutes or so … and I saw two personalities who were classy in several ways.  They are Paul Martino, a reporter and an anchor for KDKA, and Ray Petelin, who is one of their meteorologists.  Before that, he was the weekend evening meteorologist at WTAE for seven years.  Until September of this year, they both aired on two different stations at the same time.  Now I can watch them both on the same station at the same time on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

Seeing those two personalities on KDKA prompted me to write this blog post, which is about seeing TV personalities on weekends.  WPXI’s weekend newscasts are full of classy people.  Kevin Benson, who has been WPXI weekend weatherman for over 30 years, is easily one of the classiest weathermen on TV.  He appears on just about every newscast on weekends.  The station has classy weekend anchors, like Marlisa Goldsmith, who is their weekend evening anchor, and Jennifer Tomazic, who is their weekend morning anchor.  They have classy weekend reporters too, like Erin Clarke and Lori Houy.

Some of WTAE’s classiest people are on their weekend newscasts.  One of them is weekend morning weatherperson Cam Tran … and another one is Brittany Hoke, who is both a reporter and an anchor for the station.

As I said before, Paul Martino and Ray Petelin are two of KDKA’s classiest personalities … and they give KDKA’s weekend evening newscasts some class.  The station’s Saturday morning newscasts have a classy person as its anchor … and her name is Brenda Waters.  I like it whenever she needs her newscasts by saying, “Have a positive day!”

Finally, the cable news channels are full of classy people on weekends.  Some of them include Lynn Smith, who anchors “Weekend Express” on HLN, and Ana Cabrera, who anchors the weekend evening editions of “CNN Newsroom” on CNN.

I love weekends because they are almost always full of classy people to watch on television.

Good-bye, Sally Wiggin

Sally Wiggin has retired from WTAE, which is the ABC affiliate in Pittsburgh … and I’d like to tell you about the times that I met this classy personality in person.  She was at WTAE for 38 years.

In the mid 2000s, I bumped into Sally at Kennywood Park, which is located in West Mifflin.  I got her autograph at least once while I was there.  I still have her autograph today.

Now, in the late 2000s, I met Sally at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, which is located in Downtown Pittsburgh … and I had my picture taken with her while I was there.

I will miss watching Sally on WTAE.  She was (and still is) a very classy personality.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For December 2018

The year 2018 is almost over, if you can believe that.  In just a few weeks, we will start the year 2019.  I will give my features another break in December, but I will bring them back in the new year.  Today, I’d like to tell you about the top blog posts for December 2018.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “We’ve owned our red truck for five years!”  We first purchased our red Chevrolet truck in December of 2013.  It replaced our blue Chevrolet truck, which was at our house from October of 1990 until September of 2013.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “I have owned my Motorola smartphone for one year!”  I will talk about my phone, which I have owned for almost one year now.  It says “Hello Moto!” sometimes.  It usually does that whenever someone is trying to call me on it.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “2018 is my blog’s best year yet!”  My blog has now been seen more than 1,300 times this year … and the number will rise before the year is over.  It will probably cross the 1400-views mark at some point in December.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph Has Had A Cardigan Sweater For One Year!”  I will tell you about my grey cardigan sweater, which I purchased at Sears almost one year ago.  It is very classy.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Weekends Are Full Of Class!”  I will talk about some classy TV personalities, who generally appear on Pittsburgh’s TV stations on weekends.  Some of them are anchors … and some of them are reporters.  Some of these people may surprise you a little bit.

At around Christmas time, I will write a two-part blog post for you guys.  It will be entitled “Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For 2018.”  I will tell you about the year’s top blog posts in the two-part blog post.

I will write my 1,025th blog post down in December.  It could be about anything.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Good-bye, Sally Wiggin.”  She is retiring from WTAE this week … and I will talk about meeting her at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, which is located in Downtown Pittsburgh.  I did it in the late 2000s.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Christmas Presents For 2018.”  I will talk about my Christmas presents in the blog post in December … and I will turn a few of my presents into blog posts in January.

Another one of my posts will be entitled “Joseph’s Nike Air Jacket.”  I will talk about the classy item in a blog post in December.

I hope you will check out my posts on my blog in December.  Thank you for checking out my blog in 2018 … and I hope you will continue to check out my blog in 2019.

Enjoy your day!

In honor of my blog’s fifth year, I’d like to show you five blog posts that I wrote down on or around November 29th in previous years …

Joseph’s New LG Television Set

Yesterday afternoon, my “computer room” got a little makeover of sorts.  At around 2:15 yesterday afternoon, I got a new TV set from LG … and, just minutes later, I started putting it to use.  Boy, do I like this set a lot!  It talks whenever you use the TV’s features … and I’m also able to use the “sleep timer” feature, which is on the TV.  You can use it for up to 240 minutes, or 4 hours.  Every minute, it tells you how many more minutes the TV will remain on for.  I love this TV … and I plan to use it a lot in the future.

On August 8, 2018, I received a new TV set from LG … and I put it to use almost immediately. I really like it … and I will be using it many times in the future. It talks whenever you use its features … and, whenever you use its sleep timer feature, it will tell you how many minutes the TV will remain on for each and every minute.

Being inspired by various TV personalities

For as long as I can remember, I have been able to watch various television personalities on all three of Pittsburgh’s TV stations, which are KDKA, WTAE and WPXI.  I can honestly say that at least one person from each of those stations has inspired me to be the person that I am today.

First, Julie Grant, who is an anchor and a reporter for KDKA, has partially inspired me to be a fairly polite person on a daily basis.  I try to remember my pleases and thank yous both at home and in public … and I’m fairly polite at least 50 percent of the time.  Second, Jackie Cain, who is an anchor and a reporter for WTAE, has inspired me to become the classy person that I am today.  She is also a classy TV personality.  Third, Kevin Benson, who is a meteorologist for WPXI, has partially inspired me to be a terrific speaker.  I have been a fan of his work for several years … and I even met him at a Washington County gas station in the Spring of 2007.

Of course, whenever you watch a personality that you like so much, you’re sure to be inspired by him or her to be the terrific person that you might want to be.  It was certainly the case for me.

Enjoy your day!

I see a lot of “fives” here!

Now, at around 7:00 tomorrow evening, I will be giving my computer a break for a few days.  So, before I start giving my computer a break then, I’d like to show you something that I saw while I was watching TV last month.  Ironically, I was giving my computer a break for a whole day whenever I did this.

Now, last month, I was watching WPXI’s Sunday Morning newscast … and, while I was doing that, I saw something that you don’t really see on a daily basis.  I saw a lot of “5s” on the bottom-right hand corner of the TV screen.  Let me put it to you this way.  It was 5:55 in the morning … and it was 55 degrees outside at that time.  That was why I was able to see some “fives” on the TV screen.

Back in May of 2018, I was able to see a lot of “5s” on the TV screen while I was watching WPXI’s Sunday Morning newscast. It was 5:55 in the morning … and it was 55 degrees at that time. That was why I saw a lot of “5s” on the screen.

Now, I will be giving my computer a break from 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 7th, until 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, June 17th, which is also Father’s Day.  I will be writing two interesting blog posts for you guys next week.

Joseph Watches PCNC During The Day

In recent years, I have been able to watch PCNC on my TVs at home on a daily basis.  At my house, it’s on channel 35.  PCNC stands for Pittsburgh Cable News Channel.  I usually just watch it on weekdays, but, sometimes, I’ll watch it on weekends.  I generally watch that channel in my “computer room” while I use my computer.  I’ll also watch it for short amounts of time in my dining room … and, on a few occasions, I’ll watch it for a few minutes in my living room as well.

Now, two years ago, I also made a brief appearance on PCNC while they were talking about The Home and Garden Show.  I appeared on the station for a few seconds or so.

IMG_20160313_121755

If you guys need something to watch at various points during the day, you should watch PCNC.  It’s a fantastic channel … and it might make your day go by just a little bit faster.  That’s certainly true in my case.

My 888th Blog Post Is About The Number 8

Happy Memorial Day, my friends!  Today, I’m writing my 888th blog post down … and, today, it will be about the number 8.  I will tell you some rather interesting things about the number 8 … and I will try to use the number 8 in the things that I’m talking about here.

The current year is 2018.

One of my favorite routes in the Pittsburgh area is Route 978, which is located in my part of Allegheny County.

For the past few weeks, I was able to watch channel 208 for about 90 minutes on certain evenings.  I needed a way to unwind after going through some tough days.

I started my blog on the eighth month of a year, which would be August.  I started it in August of 2014.  August, of course, is the eighth month of the year.

Depending on my mood, I usually do my best to wind down during the 8:00 hour on certain evenings.  I will watch a program during that hour, if I’m up to it.

Whenever I gave my computer some “vacation time,” I will usually do it for eight days at a time.

My part of National Hill has eight other houses, which are all very unique in many ways.  We actually have nine houses in my part of the neighborhood, but I do like to give praise to the eight other houses, which are located in my part of National Hill.

In the past, I would sometimes work eight hours a week at my local T.J. Maxx store, but, in recent years, I would just work four hours a week at the store.  I really like it.

So, there you have it.  I was able to give you eight interesting facts about the number 8 that I think are interesting to me.  It was the subject of my 888th blog post.

Enjoy your day!

Joseph’s Flashback: Joseph gets star struck at T.J. Maxx!

When I have not been able to see any celebrities from Hollywood during my lifetime, I have been able to see some local celebrities over the years.  I won’t tell you specifically who they are.  Let’s just say that I have seen them at various places in the Pittsburgh area, including Kennywood Park and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.  The celebrities are from various TV and radio stations throughout Pittsburgh.

Now, last Spring, at around this time or so, I actually bumped into a local celebrity while I was working at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx.  I had just finished taking my break at work, when, all of a sudden, I just happened to bump into Christine D’Antonio, who is a reporter for KDKA-TV, which is the CBS affiliate in Pittsburgh.  I told her that I watch her on KDKA regularly.  She is a terrific reporter.

Will I ever get star struck again?  Maybe.  Who knows?
