  • VIDEO: Animals Are Capable of More Compassion Than We Realize

    That Had to Be One Tired, Shocked and Grateful Bird! A bird was drowning in a pond within a bear enclosure in a Budapest zoo...see what happened next.

  • Movies so bad they're good!

    It's not supposed to be Academey Award material. It's supposed to be so bad that it's good! A guilty pleasure. There is no shame in watching the Sharknado movies although I admit I haven't. I've got them DVR'd and am waiting for just the perfect time to sit and watch. A time when alcohol will be involved!

  • VIDEO: Steven Tyler and Joe Perry with the Southern California Children's Chorus

    In April, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry teamed up with the Southern California Children's Chorus to perform an updated version of their band's classic song "Dream On" for a TV special paying tribute to the victims of last year's Boston Marathon bombings. Now, a recording of the performance, which has been titled "Dream On (Boston Strong 2014)," has been released as a digital single via iTunes.

  • Kansas Man with Guts, No Brains?

    Who wouldn't think they could rob the Bellagio and get away with it? Not saying he's guilty, but if a guy from Overland Park really did think he could pull that off and get away with it, his cajones are are bigger than his brain. Vegas police say Scott Carmitchel of Overland Park robbed the Bellagio of $43, 500 and then paid for prostitutes with cash still in Bellagio wrappers. Unlike most people who are arrested, he tried to avoid a mug shot. Some officers assisted him with that.

  • Have you seen this video? MMA guy takes down would be robbers!

    A trio of would-be gas station robbers in Houston, Texas, got the surprise of their lives after an attempt to jump an employee holding a bag of cash ended at the feet and fists of his co-worker -- who happened to be a mixed martial arts champ in his native Sri Lanka.

  • Wichita Drive-Ins' from the past!

    I'm trying to remember all the drive in movie places that used to be in town. Here's the ones I can remember: The Westport was on West St. just South of Star Lumber. It was pretty easy to sneak in to that one on foot. The Meadowlark Twin was on E. Harry just East of where the Wichita Mall building sits. It had two screens. It's hard to imagine a Drive In being in the middle of town! The 81 was, of course on 81 Highway (N. Broadway) the Terrace Drive In was on the North side of town and most of my memories revolve around the K-42 Drive In. The summer of '79 we spent a lot of time there. We would go out early, before dark, and throw the frisbee around. We'd set up our lawn chairs and have a little base camp. Loved it! The thing I remember most from my childhood days at the Drive In was the intermission films. "The Goodies Machine", "Candy Mountain", "Mouth Watering Chilly Dilly's", "3 Minutes til Showtime."

    Kyle Smith of the NY Post says WU Shock is the creepiest mascot! Really? Here's an article from a year ago filled with truly creepy Mascots. Kyle Smith did not do his homework. Checkout some truly creepy mascots.

  • Cleanthony, We Are So Proud!

    Cleanthony Early fits the Knicks like a glove. He is a New Yorker and clearly feeling at home. It has taken him no time to start posterizing. Summer league must be thrilling for him. So happy for Cle and for Toure Murray. Hope they have a stellar season.

  • Boeing, Boeing Gone

    Hard to really believe we have said goodbye to Boeing...but impossible to deny while you are getting a bargain at the big Boeing Auction on Tuesday July 22nd at 10am. Use entrance #6 and you can get bidding on everything from Giant industrial fans to Cafeteria benches and tables. For some people, these will be souvenirs of a great age gone by...for others just another hydraulic tool.

  • Giving IS better than Receiving

    Seeing a wrong righted really just blows you away! Phil and I had the privilege of working with Rusty Eck Ford, Cars4Christmas and Darrell Rankin from All Parts Auto Salvage and Dion Leffler from the Wichita Eagle to get a "new" car for a man (a cancer survivor and dialysis patient) who had his taken from him. The night before we were going to give Mr. McGhee his car..police found his stolen car, stripped. Mr. McGhee accepted the "new" Lincoln, beautifully reconditioned by Rusty Eck Ford and then donated his beloved, recovered Lincoln Town Car to Cars4Heroes to be reconditioned for a veteran. Smiles all around...a few tears too.

  • Listen to a clip from the new Robert Plant Album!!

  • Soccer Fans Have Some Serious Costumes!

    Has anyone else noticed that the quality of the costumes worn by soccer fans rises above the level of costumes at other sporting events? These peeps not only have costumes that are almost Hollywood set-worthy, they also look like they just got their hair and make-up done! Is it that the income level of soccer fans who travel to the World Cup is just a lot higher? In any event they look good! Keep on cheering, USA fans.

  • Take That Pup to Work Today!

    I think having (well behaved) dogs at work with us would make all workers happy and more productive. Today is the day to try it out, It's Take Your Dog to Work Day... If not today, maybe ask the boss for next year! We have a couple of pups at home who are always up for an adventure, I am sure Happy (our smaller white Jack Russell mix from the LAPP shelter) would want the mic! Check out today's festivities..

  • Timing Was Perfect For The Prize Eliminator Winner

    All the Prize Eliminator contestants who eliminated a prize probably had something else on the list that they wanted to win. For Larry Carriker, that something else was $1,000 in groceries. Larry eliminated the Vegas trip from the final four remaining prizes, because he had just moved here from Nevada and in hopes the $1,000 in groceries would be the last remaining prize. Why? He did not say so at the time he eliminated Vegas, but is was partly because he was purchasing a new refrigerator/freezer he needed to stock. As fate would have it, the $1,000 in groceries was the last prize standing. Oddly enough, Larry's name was drawn as the winner! Larry is a happy and lucky man!

  • D-Day Was 70 years ago Today

    I can't imagine the feelings going through the minds our troops and their leaders 70 years ago today...the waiting, the hope that this effort would turn the tide, the strong possibility they would die. The invasion marked the beginning of the end for Hitler's army, as General Eisenhower called for "nothing except full victory". Germany surrendered less than a year later. Thank you to Bob Rogers my old friend from church, to Sam Seminoff, and Firrest Adams all Kansans who were there.
