If you loved going to the drive-in movies in the #KansasCity area, you will be as pleased as I was to learn they are under new ownership and will be re-opened this year.
---------------------
B&B Theatres is pleased to announce the acquisition of The Twin Drive-In in Independence, MO and the I-70 Drive-In in Kansas City, MO. These drive-ins were going to be forced to close at the end of this season because Hollywood will stop making 35MM film at the end of this year. Beginning in March, B&B Theatres will expand upon its Kansas City presence by assuming ownership of The I-70 Drive In and The Twin Drive In, both longstanding entertainment staples of the Kansas City Metro area. B&B Theatres promises to not only save these classic drive ins from closing but also to help them to thrive as digital projectors are installed, concession options are modified and improved, and the signature B&B customer service model delivers an entertainment experience that is second to none! B&B Theatres and their talented crew will work to ensure an unforgettable cinematic experience for all that attend.

I know people who were crazy enough to do this!
Twenty-four applicants who applied for the world's toughest job could not believe their ears. 24/7 work, no rest -- and it's paid absolutely nothing.

24: Live Another Day  is an upcoming 24 limited event television series. Set four years after the events of season 8, the series will loosely adhere to the real time concept; while it will still cover the events of a single day with each episode corresponding to an hour, there will be jumps forward in time between certain episodes. The series will begin with a two-hour premiere on May 5, 2014.
But what if Jack just got fed up, killed everybody and went home? :-)

Ive always believed in the concept of
transcendence. Im looking forward to see how they convey it. It reminds me of the new captain america film, conscious awareness transferred to a computer.

Shiny!
 
:)
Last week, NASA astronaut Steve Swanson sent the first Instagram from space. It was a selfie, naturally, taken before the ISS cupola. But what caught our eye wasn't Swanson's handsome mug or the view of Earth. It was Swanson's shirt, which features a familiar spacecraft and the words: "Shipping & Logistics: Everything's Shiny."

I think someone should try to take the sky from him just to see what would happen.

Story
Tagline
Author, humorist, lover of life
Introduction
I grew up in Independence, Missouri, and was strongly influenced by Harry Truman's straight talk and honest action. I have been a registered radiological technologist, pre-need counselor, webmaster, humor columnist, and blogger.

I am also a moderator for the Google Plus Community "Writers Discussion Group"  which proudly hit 10,000 members March 8, 2013 and topped 15,000 on October 22, 2013.

I am the author of three books,  a collection of essays, "Queen Klutz: The Misadventures of a Very Clumsy Woman," a paranormal mystery novel, "River of Possibilities," and a humorous self-help manual, "7 Ways You Screw Up Your Life (and how to unscrew it)"

I am published in the Examiner newspaper, 2006 Writer's Blog Anthology and as a featured columnist at USA Deep South and Southern Humorists. I live in rural Jackson County, Missouri.

I am a humorist, lover of life, author and caregiver for my disabled husband (stroke) and until her recent passing, my mother-in-law (Parkinson's). I love social media because I don't get to meet people in real-life due to my caregiving responsibilities.

I blog about laughter, bad luck, no luck, being a klutz, cars that hate me, life and love. I turned several of my blog posts and newspaper columns into my first book.  Then I lived the dream of writing a novel which is available at Amazon and Smashwords.  I am an early adopter of new technologies and wrote a third book - a humorous self-help manual with many friends from the early days of Twitter including Foreword by Chris Brogan. Contributors = Jeremiah Owyang, Becky McCray, Susan Reynolds, Terry Starbucker, Liz Strauss. I worked for Seth Godin when Squidoo was being launched, building pages to increase the site's viability.
