It happens every year. What am I going to dress up as for Halloween? This year, it seems to be more difficult to come up with an idea. Check out this video of a costume that would be perfect for your younger kid or grandkid. It involves a lot of lights and its VERY cool.
Gene Simmons of KISS has spoken about the recent announcement that KISS has been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Gene has said that Ace and Peter will NOT be a part of it if KISS is chosen!
When I fly, I usually pic the window seat, because I still enjoy looking out the window to see the earth from the sky. Looking out and down and seeing cities, and just taking in the view. What if you were flying and saw this? Check out this story about a portrait.
The Terminator is at it again. He wants to be President of the United States. Only one problem. He is NOT a natural born citizen. The office is only allowed for Americans that were born in the US. Arnold was born in Austria. Can he get the Constitution changed???
There is nothing more I hate than a wake up call when I'M NOT EXPECTING ONE... This morning, my phone rings at 6:45. On the other end, its Jan and Phil trash talking me that the KC Chiefs who are undefeated and 6-0 will beat the Houston Texans this weekend. I am a die hard Texans fan. I had high hopes for the team this year as did the entire city and fan base. So far, its been disastrous. My only defense really is ANY GIVEN SUNDAY. Anything can happen and I am certainly hoping that is the case this weekend. The game is in KC at Arrowhead. I am still thinking of going to the game to see it in person. Apparently, if the Texans lose, I have to wear KC Chiefs attire and walk on Kellogg somewhere for people to see. That is NOT something I want to do.
With the furlough going on with the government shutdown, there are a lot of articles about people who live simple and don't spend a lot of money for day to day things. I find it very interesting, because in a way, I am frugle. I tend to always be cash poor. If I don't have cash in my wallet, I don't spend money. I am not the kind of person to just use my debit card everywhere and anywhere. Could I do what the people in the story are doing? Probably not. I would need more than just a room or a makeshift place to live.
I love how Hollywood can inspire real life. We see it now in cell phones, tablets and skype and many others that were inspired from Star Trek back in the 70's. Now comes word that the US Army is trying to create a real life IRON MAN. I wonder what our life will be like in 10, 20, and even 50 years from now.
I have never watched an episode of the tv show. I never will. I don't understand to this day how they are popular and people actually watch this show. And now news of the seperation between Bruce and Kris is in the news and will be the topic of the upcoming season. WHY is this even television. haha
One of my favorite scenes in ANY movie is the workout scene in the Rocky movies. The scene in Rocky II where he runs all throughout Philadelphia, someone wanted to figure out just how far did Rocky run. Now we know.
The US Treasury is releasing a new $100 bill to be circulated. The non stop effort to thwart counterfeit money, every few years or so, new methods are created and implemented in the making of US currency.
When I think of an amusement park or a county or state fair, I always think about the Ferris Wheel. Its that iconic structure that you can see from far distances and that you can use as a guide to getting you there. The views from some of the ferris wheels are spectacular and breathtaking depending on where it is. Here is a link to a story with some great pics.
Breaking Bad has concluded. Were you one of the millions who watched it? A lot of my friends and family were and loved talking to each other about it. The final episode aired over the weekend with many of the storylines finally at its end.
We all know the dangers of using your cellphone while driving. There are campaigns to inform the masses that texting while driving is not only dangerous but it is against the law. The state of New York has 'texting' zones. Areas on highways where you can safely pull over off the road and park to text. I actually think this is a good idea. You see rest stops every so often, now there could be text stops.
Only one day into the new season of TV where all the new shows debut and I am HOOKED. I have always been a fan of actor James Spader. His portrayel of Alan Shore in Boston Legal was one of my favorites. Now James is starring in a new TV show called The Blacklist. It debuted last night and all I can say is WOW! He is amazing and the show is really good.
