058 - Who is Happy Guy? | Devin Sturdy

April 1, 2020

I know I am need of a happy story right now.

Devin Sturdy joins me to explain the story behind the Who is Happy Guy quest from 2007/2008.

A photo of someone who looked so very happy was found in a bin. Nate, Devin's brother took this photo and put it on their fridge and named him Happy Guy. This photo then became a reminder of happiness. Years later they decided to try and find Happy Guy. Listen to find out what happened. 

Take a photo of yourself with a big cheesy grin and # it with #withyoueverystephappyguy or #withyoueverystephappygal Let's make others feel the way Nate and Devin felt every time they looked at that photo. 

To see the original photo of Happy Guy go to our Instagram page.

055 - Hunter Valley Wine Region

055 - Hunter Valley Wine Region

February 26, 2020

This episode I visit the Hunter Valley Wine region. If you are a wine lover like I am, then this episode is for you. 

The Hunter Valley wine region is about 120km (75mi) North of Sydney, NSW, Australia. It is the oldest wine region in Australia with around 150 Cellar doors to visit. Knowing this I had no idea where to start or which ones to visit. We had one day in the area and we wanted to visit as many as possible without the stress of driving.

I found the iHop Hunter Valley hop on and hop off bus tour. WOW, what a fabulous way to visit the Hunter. I go into detail about how the booking process works, what the tour entails and which cellar doors we visited. I rate every Cellar door and talk about some of the amazing information I received from some very knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful part of Australia. 

To book with iHop head over to https://ihophuntervalley.com.au/ihop-by-day/

053 - I’M BACK!

053 - I’M BACK!

February 12, 2020

I'm BACK! And next week I have a ripper of an episode for you all.

I'm so sorry that I disappeared without letting you know I was going on a break. This episode is to explain what happened and why I was away for so long. I wish I could say that I went on an amazing trip and was having a ball. Unfortunately that was not the case. I get emotional as this was a hard episode to record, but I thought it was only fair that I explain why my break was so long. I open up about my personal struggle, which then finally ended in surgery. I talk about the health care system in Australia and how it works and all the disasters happening around the world at the moment. 

I have added links below that I mention in the episode for those that may want to find out more information or donate.
