Dateline: On The Mend

From Amanda - Crazy week in early January for the Oregon McCartys! They had to take Cooper to the ER, which ended up with a late night surgery to remove his appendix. Thanks to COPA and St. Charles ER, OR, docs and peds team for taking great care of him! He said surgery was worth it because it got rid of that severe pain. He's sore but on the mend. Thank you to everyone who reached out with support!

Dateline: 10 Million Subscribers

From Rick - This past month, YouTube sensations TheMcCartys topped 10,000,000 subscribers to their channel and earned the YouTube Diamond Crystal Award. Congrats to the McCartys, Kevin, Stephanie, Audri, and Braxton for this amazing achievement.

Dateline: Vegas Baby, Vegas!

The McCarty Metro had their annual Vegas Baby Vegas trip in January. Most of the crew was back in sin city for their annual trip. In all, 8 people made the trek, including McCartys Steve, Kelly, Larry, Rick, Dennis, Austin, Brad, and brother from another mother, Robert. There are a few photos on the site, but all other records of the trip have been locked in the vault under the legal precedent 'What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!'

The final picks will be made shortly, but in the meantime, youcan see how everyone is faring and how close our tournament actually is on our Pickem page at http://www.mccartymetro.com/pickem.html.

Dear Editor: I want to go out and shovel all the snow that is piled up on my deck and driveway, but I live in a condo, and a company from the association is supposed to shovel. Do you think I can shovel anyway or will I be ostracized by my neighbors and maybe kicked out of my condo? WWBSD? (What would Brad Savage do?) -Cabin Fever Guy, Hudsonville, Michigan.

ED NOTE: Don't ask Brad Savage. Rather, ask Lake Speed (WWLSD). Lake would tell you to attach a snow shovel to the grill of your car, and go to town. Brad Savage will then let you know what repair shop in your area will fix your punctured radiator.

Dear Editor: Can you settle a bet? How did your band settle on "Cockroaches" as part of Brad Savage and the Cockroaches? I thought it was supposed to be Eric Swan and the Rock n' Roll Coaches, but a friend, who will remain nameless, says the original band was called The Eddie Stein Experience. Who is right? -E.S., West Michigan

ED NOTE: Eric did not want his name to be what we called the band, and he actually suggested that I (Brad Savage) be the leader of the band. As far as how we got the name, we decided by chance. Eric and Brad agreed that we would choose a name at random from the dictionary. We opened up a dictionary, fanned the pages, plopped a finger on a page... And we didn't want to be called Brad Savage & The Cocks, so we moved it down to Cockroaches. As far as Eddie Stein, last I heard, he was still looking for a cause he lost back in the 60s.

I appreciate you stopping by and would like to hear your questions, comments, or editorials.

Pasta Fagioli in the Crockpot

Here is a great set and forget soup recipe. Being in the cold days of winter, there's nothing better than a great bowl of hot pasta fagioli soup to warm you up. It's even better than what they serve at Olive Garden. Enjoy!


 2 lbs. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 (28 oz) cans of diced tomatoes, not drained
1 (16 oz) can red kidney beans
1 (16 oz) can white kidney beans
3 (10 oz) cans beef stock
3 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. pepper
5 tsp. parsley
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce (optional)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
8 oz. Ditalini or your favorite hearty pasta


Brown beef in a skillet. Drain fat from the beef and add to crock pot with everything else except the pasta. Cook on low 7-8 hours (or on high 4-5 hours). Add pasta the last 30 minutes. Serve with a nice crisp green salad and enjoy some garlic bread. Delicious!
