I was born & raised in Marysville, Washington (the other Marysville). I am the son of teacher parents so education was pretty important in my family. I graduated with a B.S. degree in Organizational & Mass Communications from Eastern Washington University (after a lengthy battle over a typing compentency test, which I eventually won). When I got to college I asked someone who had the best parties and they told me to try the Radio & Television Department. So I got a job on the campus station and it turns out the guy was right, I got hooked on radio and the rest is the proverbial history.
I'd like to know what you are up too. Send me an e-mail about your favorite things to do, fun websites you've found, funny stories or gossip you may have heard and things that you and your friends and co-workers are talking about (I can always use the material). Thanks for listening and thanks for stopping by my page. By the way if you have any thoughts about stuff you'd like to see here, send me an e-mail. - Manley

Mike's Blog De Jour
It's GERD Awareness Week this week and even though it sounds kind of funny it's a serious thing. GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease is a chronic condition where stomach acid backs up into the esophagus and irritates the lining of the esophagus. You may have experienced occasional heartburn or acid reflux which can be often be controlled with proper diet or over the counter remedies. But, over time and if it occurs often enough, this condition can become quite serious and can potentially lead to other problems like increased risk of esophageal cancer. If you are having trouble with heartburn it's always a good idea to check with your doctor about your symptoms. I am not a doctor and I am not attempting to give any medical advice, I'm simply someone who used to suffer with chronic heartburn and have learned alot about the condition over the years. For me losing weight and eating healthier seemed to be what really helped me to be free from heartburn symptoms for more than a year.
