Another week, another tragedy. Actually, it’s more than just weekly.
I was watching the ‘CBS Evening News’ when the French tragedy in Nice was developing. I have to hand it to Scott Pelly for stating several times that “the information is not as reliable as we’d like.” Too often, it seems the news, especially CNN, likes to roll with whatever they get and throw it out there.
I’ve gotten to the point that I don’t like wearing sandals when I got out in public. I tend to make sure I wear good shoes that give me the ability to quickly move around if something crazy should happen.
This may be a first for product placement, but DC Comics threw in a Snickers in the middle of a Batman and Superman fight against Doomsday.
It wasn’t until earlier this week that I knew what to call that thing when people stick out their tongue and blow to make a sound of flatulence causing saliva to spray. I was informed it’s called a “raspberry”. It never occurred to me it had a name. I also thought a “raspberry” was when you press your lips on a kids belly and blow, tickling them and making the sound of flatulence.
The more I look at this picture of the Bushs and Obamas, the more I smile and laugh.
Well, I was totally wrong about Trump picking Newt for his VP. Overall, I think he made a real solid choice in Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. I’m not saying I endorse the ticket, but with Pence’s experience in Congress, as a governor, a calm demeanor, and a Tea Party like candidate before it blew up, it’s good politics. It was also good politics, and simply the right thing to do, for Trump to cancel the announcement with the tragedy in Nice.
I’m curious to know if Pence is required to wear the red “Make America Great Again” hat or if that was a potential sticking point.
A new Pew Research Center survey conducted June 7-July 5 finds that about six-in-ten Americans (59%) feel exhausted by the amount of election coverage, while 39% say they like getting a lot of coverage about the election.
Officers found the teen sleeping in a tent over the weekend outside a local college. Instead of giving him a ticket for trespassing, the officers listened to his story – and that’s where this amazing story begins.
On the local news, I saw that one of the slain officers will be buried in Detroit. The news stated Southwest Airlines was going to add an extra flight from Dallas Love Field to Detroit, and any police officer that wanted to attend could fly for free. They also allowed cops in other cities to fly to Dallas for free to attend any local funeral. Gosh, I love that company.
Among the largest U.S. airlines, only Delta Air Lines and Alaska Airlines still offer so-called bereavement fares. Those tickets, however, come with a big caveat.”They are a very small discount off the walk-up fare” — a costly unrestricted ticket, said George Hobica, founder of the airfarewatchdog.com site. “Even if you can find one, they are not any cheaper.”
A spokesman said Virgin America offers 40 percent off, but the policy is not listed on the website of the smaller carrier, which flies to only 21 U.S. airports.
American Airlines and United Airlines ended bereavement fares in 2014. Southwest Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Spirit Airlines and Allegiant Air don’t offer them.
I miss those old cartoony looking maps you’d see of cities and amusement parks, here’s one of Dallas from 1985.
The map shows two Cityplace towers so I’m guessing it’s a map of what was projected to be.
Before Hurricane Harbor, there was Wet ‘n Wild, before that there was White Water.
The map was from the Old San Francisco Steakhouse, which I hear was quite a thing back in the day, something about a trapeze performer while you ate.
