Michigan State Spartan graduate, Austin McCarty, has been
accepted to the University of Michigan for his Masters in
Business Administration. Austin will be starting in May.
He will attend accelerated courses every other weekend for
2 years to accomplish his goal. While going there, Austin
will be staying off-campus with his Aunt Marianne. We were
wondering if there would be any conflict of interest in an
MSU grad changing colors and going to their arch-rival,
but then we remembered our color wheel...
When you mix maize and blue
together... You get GREEN!
ROYAL OAK, MICHIGAN
annual UHY Cares / Dan McCarty Texas Holdem event was held
on Thursday, February 8 at the Royal Oak Emagine. The
winner of the championship bracelet ended up being Matt Jaeger,
after a long, long battle of trading chips. Steve McCarty

event raised nearly $25,000 for the UHY Cares charities.
He also was super pleased with the venue and event. Paul Glantz from Emagine was there to make sure it went smoothly. This year was our biggest crowd yet and, incredibly,
Steve got a lot of messages from people that said they wanted to come but did not see the invite.

Congratulations to Mike Wiacek, who came from behind, scoring 140 of a possible 200 points in the Super Bowl to become the 2018 Champion. This also marks the first 2-Time Champion as Mike was co-champion in

Gina traveled up to Michigan. The only issue was the foot
of snow we received during their visit. Quite a bit of
difference from the milder Tennessee winters. Anyway, they
attended the Dan McCarty Texas Holdem event in Royal Oak
they got to play cards, bowled in the losers lounge, had
some cocktails, and met a lot of people. While in town,
they also got to visit mom. One plan that got canceled due
to the snow was a trip to Frankenmuth, however, they did
have a nice dinner with Kelly & Margaret at Sajo's
restaurant. Steve and Kristen also hosted a party in their
new crib (very nice digs) and got to relax with family and
friends before having to go back. Needless to say their
trip was very enjoyable, and Gina seemed impressed with
Larry's driving ability through the snow covered streets.
Unfortunately with all the snow, it took hours for them to
get back to Tennessee with delay after delay. You can see
the video when they finally got home below in the Metro
Quick Videos section.

McCarty joined Moe & Bev VanWaleghem for a lovely
Valentine's dinner at the fancy Castle Of White Restaurant.
For one night only, White Castle offers table side service
with table cloths, menus, hostesses, waitresses and
waiters. The 4 enjoyed a great meal of White Castle sliders,
fish sliders, buffalo
chips, onion rings, and soft drinks, finished off with a
cheesecake on a stick. My compliments to the
the massive amount of pot holes created from the
winter thaw here in Michigan, I think I have found
my next tire (below), which I believe will withstand the
worst of the worst Michigan has to offer... Also,

February updates (right).

A Valencia, California policeman had a perfect
spot to watch for speeders, but wasn't
getting many. Then he discovered the
problem--a 12-year-old boy was standing up
the road with a hand painted sign, which
read 'RADAR TRAP AHEAD.' The officer also
found the boy had an accomplice who was
down the road with a sign reading 'TIPS'
and a bucket full of money. (And we used
to just sell lemonade!)
A motorist was mailed a picture of his car
speeding through an automated radar post
in Bend, Oregon. A $40 speeding
ticket was included. Being cute, he sent
the police department a picture of $40.
The police responded with another mailed
photo of handcuffs.
A young woman was pulled over for
speeding. An Michigan State Trooper walked
to her car window, flipping open his
ticket book. She said, "I bet you are
going to sell me a ticket to the State
Trooper's Ball." He replied,
"Michigan State Troopers don't have
balls." There was a moment of
silence. He then closed his book, tipped
his hat, got back in his patrol car and

I have it on good authority (a DNA test) that the McCarty brothers are only 11 or 12 percent Irish. What gives? I thought the "Mc" in any name was good for at least 84 percent. - Mike not-so-McCarty-ish, Grand Rapids
NOTE: OK... So we found out that we are not as Irish
as we first thought. I hear Shaquille O'Neal, Barack
O'Bama, and rapper McHammer are all going through the same
ancestry issues finding out they are not as green as they
thought. But cheer up Mike.... Because EVERYBODY is Irish

8-count pkg Large Flour Tortillas
1 packet Taco Seasoning Mix
8 oz Cream Cheese – softened
8 oz Sour Cream
6 Green Onions (chopped)
4 oz Chopped Green Chiles (drained)
8 oz Cheddar Cheese (shredded-about 2 cups)
Blend cream cheese and sour cream together in a bowl with electric mixer.
Add taco seasoning, onions, chiles, and cheddar cheese.
Beat just until blended.
Taste and add salt & pepper as needed. Spread mixture thinly and evenly over tortillas to within about ¼ inch of the edges.
Roll up each filled tortilla jelly-roll fashion and wrap individually in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and no more than 24 hours.
Just before serving, slice each tortilla roll-up in 1/2 – 3/4 inch pinwheel rounds. You should get about 6 pinwheels per tortilla. They will become dry if sliced too far in advance.
These taste delicious just as is, but you can have your favorite salsa or dips ready on the side. Good choices are ranch dressing, guacamole, and sour cream.
