John Riggs

I've been in radio since 2001 and moved around a few times before landing where I am now. I'm married with three children. I'm an autism acceptance advocate. I love to cook, just don't like doing the dishes afterward. I have a knack for all things nostalgic from the '80s and '90s, love breakfast cereal a little too much and am a huge fan of video games, especially retro games from Atari to Nintendo and beyond.

A Peek Inside Famous Dave’s in Yakima

Famous Dave's opens in Yakima on Labor Day, September 2nd.

It gives them the real-time experience they need. I was invited to check out Famous Dave's a couple of days before they opened. Here's what I saw.

Search Through Misspelled Ebay Postings To Find Great Deals

I'm a huge fan of eBay. I can find items from my childhood, get parts for something I'm fixing or import items we don't have available in America all in one place. Although eBay has changed the landscape on how we bid in auctions and, in some cases, changed the value of rare items like baseball cards and antiques, there are hundreds of thousands of eBay listings that nobody buys all because someone posted an item and misspelled the words you would be searching for.

Fortunately, there's a website that searches for all of the misspellings for you!
