The Johnny O Show

 

Cory Brada, who once upon a time worked for a radio station and has experience in interviewing boring people like me ;-), decided to give me a feature on his podcast Brada's Branded Thoughts.
It was a lot of fun talking about myself, unsurprisingly. ;-) And I think Cory did a good job making me interesting, so if you're interested in learning more about my career, hobbies and personal life, this interview will cover it all.

This was week 75 of Brada's Branded Thoughts, check out his others here: https://www.facebook.com/Bradas-Branded-Thoughts-695128550497324/

I wanted Britty to upload this drawing on my channel. She drew this as a graduation gift for a friend of her's; some of his favorite anime characters. :-) (Also the interesting song choice was based upon what reminded her of this friend) It took her about 18 hours, which she is sad to admit. She drew this using Adobe Photoshop CC, along with her Wacom Intuos4 tablet. Subscribe to Brittain's
Here is Linda, who I have hired to landscape both our front and back yards, and she's our guide as we tour the outside of our home. She's done quite a bit of work and the place looks beautiful so far. She discusses what she's accomplished up to this point, and tells me about the flowers and foliage she's planted. :-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://...

That's one heck of a deal. Several of the items in the box you can
This video features my journey from start to the present of learning Morse Code. Wanting to get more out of my hobby using amateur radio, I became determined to master CW. I took many different avenues in learning it, but few were successful. So, I came up with a way that was helpful to me, using chunking and mnemonic devices. This video gives an overview of how to use the charts I've created,
I go in depth about the pros and (mainly) cons of the MFJ-1820T 20 meter antenna. I will do some further testing, but from what I have done already, it's not very impressive. At all.

Big day spent in Des Moines, Iowa; started off the day by visiting Des Moines downtown farmers' market - got to try lots of different samples of awesome foods, and saw lots of live entertainment. Then we ate at Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, and overall it was an enjoyable experience. After we hit Costco, we headed back to Newton and went bowling in Newton, using my brand new personal bowling ball.
This features the fun bits and pieces of the overall tedious & gradual progression of our home's remodeling project. From April 13th of 2017, to August 15th of 2018. From fencing our back yard, to turning the enclosed porch into a legitimate four-season room, to landscaping and gardening, it's been quite the journey thus far. And we're still not done! ;-) Thanks to everyone who has helped us on
This year's trip to the Iowa State Fair featured the family and Cory. We ate lots and lots of food, enjoyed fair attractions, including the petting zoo and Ye Old Mill. :-) Then, to end the day, we attended the Florida Georgia Line concert. It was a good one this year.

Another video featuring Mike's Kamado Joe Grill. This time, he made carne asada tacos - the steak prepared "caveman style," where it's cooked directly on the fiery coals. It was delicious.

During our 1st week of Transform with Chris and Heidi - which a few days were killer - we also went on a weekend get away for some friends' anniversary, in Clear Lake, Iowa. It was my first time in the town, and it reminded me of some quaint, West coast town, and I loved it. Great food, beautiful lake, charming city, and good friends. Subscribe: http://...

You can find this video around on the internet, but some are the Radio Shack version, they were pulled from VHS, or just overall not the best of quality. This was uploaded using the best copy I could find, because you cannot buy this anywhere anymore (or I was not able to find it for sale, anyway). I crushed the blacks a little to get it closer to what it use to be (not washed out). And as all
I had intended on riding the Ames to Newton leg of Ragbrai this year, but everyone I planned on riding with flaked out. So instead I helped out with backup communications in State Center, IA. The amount of people was insane and it really slowed down the traffic. ;-) Subscribe: http://... Check out our site: http://... Facebook: http://... #thejohnnyoshow #johnorjias #hamradio #Ragbrai
A few friends of ours invited us out to karaoke night at the Van Wijk Winery in Sully, Iowa. The winery has live music play the first Saturday of every month, karaoke night the third Saturday of every month. They've been open since 2012, making 30 different wines and serving plenty of beers, too. It was a really fun time and if you live in Iowa or happen to be in Sully, we highly recommend it. :-)
