For five years my way of giving back to my community has been to coach High School tennis. I have often said it is the most rewarding three months of my year. My teams have always done well, but this year we have done exceptionally well.
Last week and for the first time since 1999, both the boys and girls Dr Phillips High School teams won the Metro Conference Titles - going through the season unbeaten against Metro competition.
Yesterday we went out for the second day of a two-day tournament and both of my teams (12 comments)

simon conway: Why is Crist hiding from Florida voters? - 10/07/09 10:11 PM
Florida Governor Charlie Crist has refused to face the voters. Specifically the Republican voters who get to choose between him and former Speaker Marco Rubio at the Senate Primary next year. Let me explain. Last time I was filling in for Bud Hedinger on 540 WFLA, Speaker Rubio was a guest on the show. At the end of that interview I challenged the Speaker to come back to 540 WITH the Governor for a special program - some might call it debate - and take questions posed by the listeners. The Speaker agreed immediately. I then contacted my boss on the (5 comments)
As regular readers of my blog will know, I have been doing more on the radio recently and that 540 WFLA decided to give me a daily blog. It's been running for a short while now, and today it got a name! When I was asked about naming it, my first reaction was "anything except 'Simon Sez'!" Anyway, I came up with the title that I am extremely proud of. You click the banner above and please do sign up for the RSS Feed at the bottom of that page when you get there.

simon conway: New blog on radio station website - 09/24/09 09:18 AM
As those of you who know me will already be aware, I have been doing more and more radio recently. The main thing has been sitting in for the regular breakfast show host on 540 WFLA when he is on vacation or off sick or something. Well now the radio station has decided to raise my profile. In pursuit of this goal, it has given me a blog on their website. You can check it out at http://www.540wfla.com/pages/simon_conway.html and don't forget to click on the RSS Feed at the bottom of the page! If you wish to comment on any of the (7 comments)
Pictured over on the right here is Master Sergeant of Marines William "Spanky" Gibson, saluting the Stars and Stripes on Board (he's a Marine folks) Camp Fallujah in Iraq. The picture was taken on October 20 of this year. Before I get to the rest of this, it is important you know who my friend Spanky is. You can read all about him by clicking here, but suffice to say he is the first serving member of any branch of the United States military to return to a combat zone having had an above the knee amputation.

simon conway: A tribute to my in-laws - 10/12/08 11:27 AM
Monday will mark the third anniversary of my father-in-law's death. He and I shared a very special bond - unusual considering how short a time we actually knew each other. His passing was brought into sharp focus again for me this week as on Thursday my mother-in-law had a heart attack. I thought about the timing of it a lot and wondered if he was calling her - they were married for more than 50 years. Bob Jones - a very common name for an extraordinarily exceptional man. If, as a man named Henry Ward Bleecher once said, "Every charitable act (51 comments)
Tomorrow marks seven years since those vicious and cowardly attacks against our nation by those who seek to destroy us - and if they can't destroy us, then to kill as many of us as possible. I for one will never let this anniversary pass without comment. Once we forget then we will lower our guard and more tragedy will be present in our great land just as sure as night follows day. We are a great people - probably the greatest people and civilization ever to walk the planet - and part of that greatness is our ability to (35 comments)
Actually my very first vote was in 1978 - the first time I was able to, but on August 26th, I will be voting for the first time here in the United States as a citizen of this great land. It was really very exciting to receive my sample ballot in the mail yesterday and to go through my choices for the vote on the 26th. I guess this was the first time I really felt that I was a true citizen of America. And I know the numbers for people who actually go to the polls - even for (8 comments)
simon conway: The incredible story of Christian the Lion - 07/30/08 09:47 AM
Once in a while you will come across something that will stop you dead in your tracks. This morning I was working from home when my wife called out to me to come to the TV. There on the Today Show was this incredible story of Christian the Lion. If you've already seen this, you won't mind seeing it again. If you've never seen it, goosebumps and possibly tears are on the way! I don't think I've ever seen anything even close to this - and I love the message at the end as well. Enjoy my friends ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ (Copyright (22 comments)
simon conway: Truly - you HAVE to read this!!! - 07/17/08 10:29 PM
I've just returned from seeing the "Glenn Beck - Unelectable 08" tour right here in Orlando. Glenn (yes the picture is of me and Glenn last Christmas) was actually live in Dallas, Texas tonight, but the show was beamed to 350 movie theatres across the country live and in living high def color! Now I mention this because although I had a truly wonderful time - a very funny first half and a very politically incorrect second half - I also learned something that made me laugh so hard I thought I might actually have an attack of some description because breathing (15 comments)

simon conway: Father of mine. - 06/13/08 01:51 PM
You know I kind of feel alone in this world when these days come around. More than a quarter of a century since my mom was alive and six years since my dad passed. I guess like a lot of kids, I didn't really appreciate my dad when I was a kid. He worked very hard and I basically didn't see him until I was already in bed on weeknights and Saturdays. Sunday - his only day off - he was tired and my memory tells me that I didn't get to spend much time with him. But I know (20 comments)

The mail arrived today as usual - but this time, the letter I have been waiting for over the last couple of weeks has finally arrived. I have the date for my oath taking ceremony - Thursday May 22 - after which I will officially be a United States Citizen. I am truly proud. This will mark the end of a seven year journey for me and of course the spending of thousands of Dollars in fees to the Government.
