Who is Frank? A man walks out to the street and catches a taxi just going by. He gets into the taxi, and the Cabbie says, "Perfect timing. You're just like Frank." The passenger replies, “Who the hell is Frank?” "Frank Fielding”, replied the cabbie. “He's a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happened like that to Frank Fielding every single time."

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says, 'I'll try again tomorrow.' Mary Anne Radmacher, author of Lean Forward Into Life

The passenger replied, "There are always a few clouds over everybody." "Not Frank Fielding. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the GrandSlam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy." "Sounds like Frank was something really special!” exclaimed the passenger. Oh said the cabbie, "There's more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody’s birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Frank could do everything right." "Wow, some guy then." The cabbie continued on. "He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Frank, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Frank Fielding." The passenger then asked, "An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?" The cabbie replied, "Well, I never actually met Frank. He died and I married his damn wife!" FACEBOOK.COM//WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

ALL MIXED UP by Lisa Romack

Whether you’re hosting a summer party or just need to cool off with on a hot day, a good cocktail recipe is always good to have on hand. But specifically for summer, it’s nice to go beyond the typical Martini or gin and tonic and try something with a bit of seasonal flavor. So hit your local supermarket, do a bee-line for the produce section and grab some peaches, blueberries, grapefruit, and fresh mint to Mix It Up this month!

Peach Lemonade Cooler Ingredients: 1 medium sized ripe peach, peeled, halved and pitted ½ cup lemonade 1 ounce vodka of choice 1 oz Champagne Directions: Puree the peach and lemonade in a blender until smooth.

A $19-a-Month Phone with Unlimited Data, Voice and Texts

A private wireless firm is doing what the big guys can't do (or won't.) Republic Wireless, a private firm in Raleigh, N.C., now has a nocontract service that offers unlimited data, voice and texts on its Android-based smartphone…all for just $19 a month! By far the lowest price offered today, the phone is a bit salty at $249, partly to help offset the low $19 monthly price. That still makes it cheaper than a $200 phone with a $30 to $70 a month contract that includes restrictions on use. Republic also has a $99 phone with a no-contract monthly cost of $29, unlimited. Both plans are available online at republicwireless.com. Unlike other phones, these connect calls and texts over Wi-Fi or to the Internet over Sprint and not the cellular networks. This can cause some loss of clarity. The phones are specially configured to work this way. So, if you’re current phone plan is breaking your bank, it just might be worth taking a look.

TSA Cancels Its Plan To Allow Small Knives On Planes The Transportation Security Administration has rescinded its plan to allow passengers to carry small pocketknives onto airliners. They reversed their earlier decision because of a chorus of complaints from the public, fliers and lawmakers who argued that the move would endanger the flying public. In March, the TSA announced it would allow some pocketknives, hockey sticks, golf clubs and other sports equipment aboard commercial flights. Allowing these items on board was supposed to be a move to free up TSA screeners to focus more on detecting explosives. Since then, virtually every group associated with commercial flying came out against the decision, including flyers, flight attendants, pilots and even TSA screeners. So folks, bring your crosswords to keep busy because there will be no knitting or whittling allowed.

Top Retirement Mistake: Thinking You'll Spend Much Less When that magic retirement day arrives, will you suddenly spend less, while reaping the benefits of your social security, pensions or investments? The answer, yes. You'll spend a little less, but the hard truth is: The less you have, the less you spend. Most retirees have less. According to the Census Bureau, out of 100 people who started working at age 25 and retired by 65, about 63 percent are dependent on Social Security, friends, relatives and charity. Just 4 percent have saved enough to pay for their retirement. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditure Survey shows that spending drops 14 percent immediately after retirement because retirees spend less on work related items and food. Even though 53 percent of retirees experience some drop in spending at retirement, 47 percent spend the same, or more. Retirees whose investments give them an equal income often finding they are spending more because they want to travel, shop, play golf, and pursue their hobbies. All of that costs money that was not regularly factored into their budget while working. Add the cost of those activities to inflation, and after the average retirement length of 18 years, savings will be stretched thin. A paid-off house can ease the strain of retirement economics, but the number of homeowners paying off their houses is dwindling. For most retirees, housing and related expenses are the top spending category. According to the Federal Reserve Board, about 25 percent of families headed by someone 75 or older still had a mortgage in 2010. In 1989, just 5.8 percent of the same families had a mortgage. Finally, don't assume you can continue to work into your 70’s and save money for retirement. You might not be healthy enough and, in fact, about 25 percent of retirees are forced out of the workforce for health reasons. Bottom line: start saving folks. It is never too early!

They’re Not Hanging Wright An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough day trying to get a stay of execution. His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed.

You are an unfinished work in progress. One of the good things about life's challenges: You get to find out that you're capable of being far more than you ever thought possible. Karen Salmansohn, author of 38 books on happiness and achievement

As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about, “What time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been? Dinner is cold and I'm not reheating it.” On and on and on the nagging went. Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot soak in the bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself up the stairs. While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told that her husband's client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of execution after all. Wright would not be hanged tonight. Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go upstairs and give him the good news. As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband, bent over naked, drying his legs and feet. “They're not hanging Wright tonight,” she said. He whirled around and screamed, “For the love of God woman, don’t you ever stop!” FACEBOOK.COM//WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

ASK the EXPERT... Driving Under Making a Healthy Choice The Speed Limit is Dangerous A State Police Officer sees a car puttering along at 22 MPH. He thinks to himself, This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!” So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over. Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies -- two in the front seat and three in the back -- wide eyed and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, says to him, Officer, I don’t understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem?” Ma’am,” the officer replies, you weren’t speeding, but you should know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers.” Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly... Twenty-two miles an hour!” the old woman says a bit proudly. The State Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that 22” was the route number, not the speed limit. A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error. But before I let you go, Ma’am, I have to ask... Is everyone in this car OK? These women seem awfully shaken and they haven’t muttered a single peep this whole time,” the officer asks. Oh, they’ll be all right in a minute officer. We just got off Route 119.”

Deciding to take a day off from his important job, a young broker went back to visit some of his old professors. Entering the school, he saw a dog attacking a small child. He quickly jumped on the dog and strangled it. The next day, the local paper reported the story with the headline "Valiant Student Saves Boy From Fearsome Dog." The broker called the editor of the paper and strongly suggested that a correction be issued, pointing out that he was no longer a student, but a successful Wall Street broker. The paper issued a correction, with a headline that read, "Pompous Stock Broker Kills School Mascot."

Minister Takes An Airplane Flight A minister was seated next to a cowboy on a flight to Texas. After the plane was airborne, drink orders were taken. The cowboy asked for a whiskey and soda, which was brought and placed before him. The flight attendant then asked the minister if he would like a drink. He replied in disgust, "I'd rather lose my soul to lust than let liquor touch my lips." The cowboy then handed his drink back to the attendant and said, "Me too. I didn't know we had a choice."

Attention Golfers

The State Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen and golfers to be on the alert for bears this year. They advise people to attach noise-producing devices, such as little bells, on their clothing to alert bears but not startle them. They also advise carrying pepper spray in case of an encounter. You should be able to recognize the presence of bears in an area by their droppings. Black bear droppings are smaller and contain berry residue and possibly squirrel fur. Grizzly bear droppings have little bells in them and smell like pepper spray. FACEBOOK.COM//WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

73rd Sturgis Motorcycle Rally Motorcycle enthusiasts, collectors and riders worldwide have marked August 5-11, 2013, on their calendars since last August. They'll gather with half million others in the town of Sturgis, South Dakota, for one of the biggest and most famous of all motorcycle rallies in the world. Sturgis has a population of only 7,000, but manages to host this metropolitan-sized party with practiced ease. It makes room for over 800 venders selling everything from fried chicken and burgers to tattoos, anything leather, fancy jewelry and brew. Oh, and they demo every type of bike on the market and sell all manner of things to gussy them up. When people think of bikers, a vision of the Hells Angels often comes to mind. The burly, whiskered riders strike a heart-stopping moment as they roar through town by the dozen. Although outlaw clubs make their presence known, there are also many teachers, doctors, lawyers and all sorts of other workers who just like to enthuse over the candy store atmosphere. For adults who love the history of cycles and ďŹ nd custom-designed bikes exotic and awesome, the bars big enough for bikers to ride cycles through, massive crowds and rowdiness make dealing with the din worth the trip. For newcomers, Sturgis is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Bikers have the chance to participate in an organized ride through the spectacular Black Hills with the mayor and other dignitaries, the beer belly and tattoo contests, the races, the hard-rock concerts every night featuring some of the greatest names in country and rock, and camping with new and old friends on the Buffalo Chips 580 acreage.

Rally attendees also have the opportunity to visit the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Wall, which is set up on the Buffalo Chips Field of Flags with its BattleďŹ eld Cross. It honors those who have fallen in the line of duty. The Patriot Guard Riders and active duty military personnel assist in putting up the wall. So if you love to ride, or just love a great party, mark your calendar for next August and get ready to rumble! WWW.WHATSUPXTRA.COM

Country Thunder Wisconsin country music fans who were eager to party with the biggest stars this summer at Country Thunder this past July had to think ahead this year in order to get a coveted spot inside the gates. The annual fourday country music festival in Twin Lakes was sold out six months in advance of its July 18-21 run. One of a large number of country festivals across Wisconsin each summer, Country Thunder has grown in recent years to draw fans from across the nation to camp out in Southeastern Wisconsin and see a lineup of some of the genre's biggest stars. . This year's festival headliners included Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley and Jake Owen. Those big names are just each night's closer, but there was no lack of who's who of established acts and rising newcomers, including Joe Nichols, Brett Eldredge, Little Big Town, Justin Moore, Chris Young, Lee Brice, Eden's Edge, Dustin Lynch, Phil Vassar and more. The event grounds also held a Bluegrass Stage, Great American Country Stage and nightly electronic and dance music alongside an assortment of vendors and rides.

Brett Eldredge,

Country Thunder 2014 scheduled in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin for July 2427 is sure to sell out in record time even without a ďŹ nal line up in place. You can reserve your tickets and campsites for next year now by visiting their website at www.wisconsin.countrythunder.com.

Kevin Riley MONDAYS 5pm -10pm

2 4 1 BURGERS WEDNESDAYS 5pm - 10pm

Riverside Golf Course hosted the 46th annual Ray Fischer State Amateur Championship the weekend of June 28-30. Sponsored by the Wisconsin Public Links Association, this three-day tournament is one of the most prestigious amateur events in the Midwest. The event was contested over 72 holes. After two rounds, the field was cut to the top 70 players and ties, and remaining participants played 36 holes during the final round on Sunday, June 30th. Ten people from Janesville participated out of roughly 175 players and only 4 of those 175 people made the cut line to play on Sunday and to place. Kevin Riley, owner of Riley’s Sports Bar and Riley’s on the Green in downtown Janesville was one of them. When asked, Kevin humbly responded, “That was my goal.” Kevin has played in this tournament three times over the past four years and was unsuccessful in making the cut on his first two attempts. “I wanted to make the cut for my Grandma Helen”, Kevin said. “My Grandpa, now deceased and my Grandma are the ones who got me interested in golf.” Kevin’s scores for the tournament were 76-73-77 finishing at 10 over Par. A big congratulations to Kevin who finished 67th against some of the top elite players in Wisconsin. Do you know someone in the community that has a story or significant accomplishment?

The Diagnosis One day, a man was complaining to his friend about how much his elbow ached and that he was thinking of seeing a doctor. His friend said, “Don’t do that. There’s a computer at the local shopping center that can diagnose anything quicker and cheaper than a doctor. Simply put in a sample of your urine and the computer will diagnose your problem and tell you what you can do about it. And it only costs $10.00!”

My biggest motivation? Just to keep challenging myself. I see life almost like one long university education that I never had - every day I'm learning something new. Sir Richard Branson, founder and chairman of Virgin Group, more than 400 companies

The man figured he had nothing to lose, so he filled a jar with a urine sample and went to the drug store. Finding the computer, he poured in the sample and deposited the $10.00. The computer started making some noise and various lights started flashing and, after a brief pause, popped out a small slip of paper which read: You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water, avoid heavy labor. It will be better in two weeks. That evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was and how it would change medical science forever, he began to wonder if this computer could be fooled. So, he decided to give it a try. He mixed together some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, and urine samples from his wife and daughter. To top it off, he masturbated into the concoction. Then, he went back to the store and located the computer, poured in the sample and deposited the $10.00. The machine again made the usual noises, flashed its lights and printed out the following analysis: Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with antifungal shampoo. Your daughter is using cocaine. Put her in a rehabilitation clinic. Your wife is pregnant with twin girls. They aren’t yours. Get a lawyer. And if you don’t stop jerking off, your elbow will never get better!

Hot Trends in Alcohol Sales for 2013 The Straw Stripper Onsite Barrel Aged Cocktails Emphasis on locally made spirits is all the rage for 2013. For centuries spirits were stored in barrels, out of necessity, for storage and transportation. Today, the resurgence of barrel aging liquor, began in London. Aging mixed drinks in wooden barrels imparts unique flavors, depending on the wood used.

Culinary Cocktails A hot, hot trend for 2013 are cocktails made with complicated recipes, mixing traditional spirits with freshly squeezed juice, nectars, whole fruits and vegetables and herbs. For example, a bartender (aka Mixologist) may dress up a traditional mojito by adding fresh lemongrass, to create a whole new taste. Traditional Cocktails Tried and true, the Martini, Manhattan, Old Fashion – have a simplicity and elegance that will no doubt keep them on the bar menu long after above mentioned muddled lemon grass mojito hits 2013 Yesterday’s News.

TurboTap

The Straw Stripper is a safe, efficient and sanitary method of providing a drinking straw and maximizing customer service.

The unit quickly strips the bottom portion of paper away from a drinking straw, leaving the paper-tipped end ready to be placed into a beverage. It’s simple, yet it speaks volumes when showing consumers that you truly care. Customizable, easy and efficient, the Straw Stripper will revolutionize your beverage service!

Wasting beer is a crime, but have no fear, Turbo Tap is here! TurboTap dramatically reduces draft beer waste and improves yields up to 30% due to less spillage and a perfect collar of foam. Not bad when you consider that a 5% yield increase produces six extra 16 oz servings to sell per keg. TurboTap pours a perfect pint of draft beer in as little as 2.0 seconds and a pitcher in as little as 8.5 seconds. This is nearly four times the speed of a fully optimized conventional draft beer dispensing system. With TurboTap, you serve more customers and generate more revenue. The TurboTap is quickly and easily retrofitted to existing draft beer dispensing systems. The TurboTap produces a perfect collar of foam in a glass or pitcher regardless of the expertise of your staff. So what are you waiting for?

AUGUST HOROSCOPE ARIES: In conversations with your boss, good vibes seem to be there all the time. While it seems as though good luck is the cause, it's your good work that's appreciated.

LIBRA: Keep an eye out for spontaneous bursts of creativity. Make a note of the bright idea you have when relaxing outdoors or in the quiet time while sitting by a lake.

TAURUS: When teaching a coworker to take on one of your duties, be careful not to be too intent. Give instructions, but inject a little lightheartedness once in a while.

SCORPIO: When you think about your future, make your health a prime consideration. If you take good care of your body now, it could last you a lifetime.

GEMINI: Practice being more diplomatic when discussing a situation. Avoid blaming a person when something goes wrong. Focus on fixing the problem instead.

SAGITTARIUS: When it comes to financial matters, you may not be an expert. But if you stay anchored on your plans for the future, you'll discover you're an expert after all.

CANCER: An upcoming surprise could be good or not-sogood. It depends on what you read into it. Take the high road and you can find some advantages in it for you. LEO: At a gathering over the Labor Day Weekend, the role of peacemaker may fall to you, or at least it seems that way. Friendships could be at stake, so do what you can. VIRGO: Don't let the hot Dog Days of summer get you down. Go to cool places to revitalize yourself. Then remember that you love your work and get back to it.

FACEBOOK.COM//WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

CAPRICORN: It's summertime, and love is in the air. Whether you have a partner or are looking for one, keeping love in mind, or the prospect of it, will take you far. AQUARIUS: Don't leave your creativity at the workplace. Take it home and do some decorating. It could mean painting, hanging a picture or finding new pillows for the sofa. PISCES: As it should be, your friends are important to you. Don't be too busy to get together with them. Think of a friend you haven't contacted in a while and call.

POOL NEWS Impress Your Friends With This Months Trick Shot

Make 5 balls with one shot

Cheating at Pool is normally frowned

upon, and more so in a regular game, and especially with the use of props. This shot I think is the best with the use of the rack.

Heads or Tails? Flip the the dime into the glass

A lot of tricks are created through screwing around and setting up plays, this one I believe was invented that way, probably in some ones basement, or in the smoky atmosphere of a billiard hall one lazy afternoon. As with most trick shots the set up is important, probably more so with this one. If you follow the diagram you should be good to go. Strike the cue ball with slight bottom English and with medium pace.

Then watch all the balls disappear down the pockets. Trial and error helps this trick along , a tip would be to make sure the rack is angled correctly to make the top side rail and top corner pocket shots. As usual practice before you launch this on an audience

Bartender One Liners 1. Two antennas meet on a roof, fall in love and get married. The ceremony wasn’t much, but the reception was excellent. 2. Two hydrogen atoms walk into a bar. One says, “I’ve lost my electron.” The other says, “Are you sure?” The first replies, “Yes, I’m positive... 3. A jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, “I’ll serve you, but don’t start anything.” 4. A sandwich walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Sorry we don’t serve food in here.” 5. A dyslexic man walks into a bra. 6. A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm and says: “A beer please, and one for the road.” 7. Two cannibals are eating a clown. One says to the other: “Does this taste funny to you?” 8. A man complains, “Doc, I can’t stop singing ‘The Green, Green Grass of Home.’” “That’s the Tom Jones Syndrome,” explains the doc. “Is it common?” asks the man. “It’s not unusual,” says the doc.

9. Two cows are standing in a field. Daisy says to Dolly, “I was artificially inseminated this morning.” “I don’t believe you,” said Dolly. “It’s true, no bull!” exclaimed Daisy. 10.. An invisible man marries an invisible woman. The kids were nothing to look at, either. 11. Deja Moo: The feeling that you’ve heard this bull before. 12. A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet and says, “My dog’s cross-eyed, is there any thing you can do?” “Let’s have a look at him.” says the vet. So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes. Finally, he says “I’m going to have to put him down.” “Just because he’s cross-eyed?” asks the man. “No, because he’s really heavy,” says the vet. 13. I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn’t find any. 14. I went to the butcher’s and wanted to bet him 50 bucks that he couldn’t reach the meat on the top shelf. He said, “No, the steaks are too high “ 15. I went to a seafood disco last week and pulled a mussel. WWW.WHATSUPXTRA.COM
