JD's Blog, a place where sight and sound have no meaning, where time and space are illusions, and where a DJ air personality posts his slightly off-kilter take on this, that, and the other thing.
I was born in Philadelphia and lived many years in the Baltimore area. I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to get paid to do it. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I'm a writer, musician and cartoonist in my free time. And I'm a huge fan of the Philly teams: the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers as well as the Maryland Terrapins.
The Art of the Arnold Palmer

I'm not from the south, and I've never been able to get behind sweet tea. I'm not knocking it, it's just not my cup of tea (pun totally intended). As I've mentioned in this space numerous times, I like Arnold Palmer. For those unfamiliar, that's a 50/50 mixture of iced tea and lemonade. The name comes from the golfer Arnold Palmer, who was known to drink it frequently and who popularized it nationally.
Now, if you're not fortunate enough to have a cafeteria in your workplace with side-by-side iced tea and lemonade coolers, try this recipe for a quick & dirty Arnold Palmer in a single serving.
Brew one cup of black tea. Add one tablespoon of sugar and two tablespoons of lemon juice. And you're good to go. It's easy. Or else do what I do: get the flavor packets. The ones that each make two quarts. Use one iced tea and one lemonade in a gallon pitcher. The problem is I drink so much of it that a gallon only lasts me two days. However you do it, enjoy. If you've never tried an Arnold Palmer, I can't recommend it enough. It's good stuff.
