  • So you think you can get out of a speeding ticket????

    Most of us have been there. Getting pulled over by a police car for speeding. I've gotten two speeding tickets since moving here. haha. Anyway, when you get pulled over, many times you are asked why you were speeding. A story has surfaced about a woman getting pulled over and telling a convincing story and so the police officer gave her a warning and she went about her day. Low and behold, the police officer followed up and found out that she was not telling the truth. Can you guess what happened?

  • An airport re-naming is a great honor...

    Growing up in Houston, we had two airports. Intercontinental airport on the north side and Hobby Airport on the south side. Hobby Airport is named after a former Texas governor. The north side airport was renamed after our 41st President, the George Bush Intercontinental Airport. In 1997, the Houston city council voted to rename the airport.

  • HOUSTON...We won't have a problem

    The anticipation is killing me. I cannot wait until football season. The season kicks off in the next month. I am a diehard Houston Texans fan and look forward to hitting the local sports bar every Sunday to watch my team play. There is a small group of Texans fans in the Wichita area and I enjoy seeing them at the sports bar watching the game along with me. I truly believe this is our year. The Texans are prime to go the distance and win it all. And when they do, I'll be the loudest guy in the sports bar.

  • 3.2.1.....Blastoff

    I've mentioned before that I grew up in Clear Lake, TX, a suburb of Houston where the NASA Johnson Space Center is located. That's where all of the astronauts train and prepare for space travel. The shuttle missions were all very important to the area. A new story has been published about the next generation of spacecraft that will be used to take astronauts to space, Mars and beyond. I am very excited to see our future space activity.

  • The Pro Bowl is a changing...

    I can't wait til football season. I watch both college and pro. Are you a fan of the 'all - star' weekends when the best of the best are chosen and then play a game. The NFL has come out with a new format for their version of the all star game called the Pro Bowl.

  • No more JAIL? I'm against it.....

    What was one of the board games that you played when you were a kid? Or maybe, you still play the board game. For me, I loved playing Monopoly. Well, now the makers of the board game are making a change and I'm not so sure I like it. To woo more kids to play, they are getting rid of GOING TO JAIL. I always thought that was an integral part of the game.

  • ROCKY is back...sort of.

    Ok, I am totally geeking out now. Found out yesterday that there is a new ROCKY movie in the works. I am a big fan of the Rocky story and really enjoyed and appreciated the last movie in the franchise ROCKY BALBOA and figured that would be the end of it. We all did. The movie is about Rocky having one final fight, an exhibition fight against the heavyweight champion. Adrian was not in the movie as she had died. This new movie has the storyline of another famous character from the franchise. Apollo Creed. Ok, we all know that Apollo Creed died in the third movie when he was killed in the ring by Ivan Drago. This new movie is going to be centered around Apollo's kid. Rocky will ultimately be his manager/trainer. I have to admit, I am intrigued.

  • 2015: The year the two will meet on the big screen

    This years comic-con has come and gone. The BIG take away for me from this years convention is it will finally happen in 2015. It was announced that BATMAN and SUPERMAN will be in a movie together. The inner kid in me is so excited. I am a fan of both characters. I was a fan of the Superfriends cartoon when I was a young kid. Not much is really known yet, but here is the latest:

  • VIDEO: Football season can't come soon enough...

    I am SO ready for football season. I love hitting the sports bar on Sundays and watching my favorite team play. As you may already know, my favorite team is the Houston Texans. I also just looked at their schedule and saw that they are playing the Kansas City Chiefs in October at Arrowhead Stadium in KC. What does that mean? That means, I will be road tripping on that Sunday over to KC to see the game. I CAN'T WAIT.

  • PIC: new WSU baseball coach and the first pitch

    Yesterday, I was at the Wichita Wingnuts game as The Fox is there for Workforce Wednesdays. I got to throw out a first pitch again. This time around, I threw it harder and faster. The pitch was low and away this time. The speed was about 65 mph. haha.

  • Airplane fears.......

    After hearing about and seeing the landing accident of the Asiana Airlines plane in San Francisco, it brings back a memory of mine when something could have happened on a plane that I was a passenger on.

  • Buy Mick Jagger's hair? huh!

    Are you a fan of the Rolling Stones? I am. But I am not sure I would buy Mick Jagger's hair. But YOU can. It's all for charity, so I guess its not totally creepy.

  • The Loch Ness Monster explained???

    A new theory has been given on the mystery behind The Loch Ness Monster. For over 200 years, there has been this unexplained experience in the Loch Ness. Check out the article for another theory..

  • First contact?????

    I've mentioned this before, that I am a science fiction geek. I am a big believer of life on other planets, that we are not alone in the universe. I really hope in my lifetime, that the theory is proven correctly. I came across this article that further drives me wanting to know the truth.

  • VIDEO: Don't mess with gorillas

    I love living near a zoo. I've been to the Sedgwick County Zoo several times since moving here to Wichita several years ago. The giraffes and the gorillas are my favorite areas to go and watch the animals.

  • VIDEO: Throwing out the first pitch

    I found out I was going to throw out the first pitch at the Wichita Wingnuts game. Ok, cool. Um, I haven't thrown a baseball in 'many' years. All of those things started going through my mind. Will I hit the ground? Will I even make it to the plate? Will I throw too wide? Anyway, I did it and I did OK..

  • PIC: The loss of the iconic Tony Soprano....

    Actor James Gandolfini died yesterday while in Italy at a film festival of a heart attack. Most everyone knows James more for the character he played. He portrayed mafia boss Tony Soprano in the hit HBO series, The Sopranos. There has only been a few times where a character in movies/tv was bigger than the actor. This is one of them. There are many new shows today that would not be as big as they are without the character of Tony Soprano.

  • We're getting closer..............

    The new pro football season is just around the corner. Are you like me and jonesing for the ritual of either inviting friends over to the house or heading to your favorite sports bar to watch football all day? Being a huge Houston Texans fan, I am READY! I recently read an article giving you the pre season ins and outs of each team to prepare you for the season.

  • VIDEO: I believe in UFO's.... do you????

    I am such a sci-fi nerd and a huge Star Trek and Star Wars fan. I believe in aliens. I also believe they've visited before, continue to visit and may actually be living among us. Have you heard about the latest video from The Netherlands? Check it out. You will believe as well.
