Andy Winford

I am originally from Los Angeles, but grew up in Edmonton, Alberta. In between I spent two years of my childhood in Montana. One in Great Falls and the other in Havre. My mom married a Canadian when I was 9 and we moved to Canada. Because the winters in Edmonton are too damn cold, I moved back to California once I was 21. My radio career has taken me to Casa Grande, Ariz., and to Palm Springs, Fresno and San Luis Obispo, Calif., and back to Edmonton, which is a great city that, thanks to global warming, isn’t quite as cold as it used to be but colder than I can handle. So I took a position here in Billings, where the winters were much milder. Now, in the Palm Springs of Washington, I play poker, basketball and flag football in my free time. My claim to fame is that my wife Monica is sisters with the former Miss El Salvador 1996, who came in sixth in that year's Miss Universe competition. Of course I think my wife is prettier than her sister! I also have a 12 year-old daughter named Noel who is in junior high and was the fifth-grade champion high jumper.

Safeco Field Is The Coolest Baseball Stadium In America

First off, full disclosure... I'm a Dodgers fan. There is a special place in my heart for Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles and up until 15 years ago or so I would have ranked it #2 behind Wrigley Field in Chicago as the 2nd best baseball park in the country

Watching How A Man Eats May Be Your Opening To Meet The Man Of Your Dreams

If you see a man in line at Albertson's with the products you saw on the belt above then you know he lives alone. Who goes shopping for their family and just buys Orange Juice, Nutter Butter mini cookies and Ore Ida hash brown potatoes? Me, that's who! My family has lived in California the entire time I've lived here and it's starting to affect my diet!

If you see a man eating like this, check for a ring first (he might just be working away from home like me) and if he's single that's your opening to say something trite like "you haven't had a decent meal in awhile have you"? As comedian Greg Hahn says, you could tell a man you're gassy and he'll ask you to pull up a chair

How To Tell If Your Coffee House Is Serving The Most Flavorful Coffee

My brother-in-law recently opened up a new espresso company in Seattle, the mecca of the roasted beans, and (sure I'm biased) makes an excellent cup of coffee. After all his name is Carlos... he's practically related to Juan Valdez! Okay, not really but he knows what he's doing
