The #44 car did not make it for qualifying in Atlanta on Friday because it had been stolen. The car was in a trailer not normally used to transport the car and had no identifying marks on the outside. Someone made off with it at about 5:30 am from the hotel parking lot. It was caught on surveillance video. The car was found on a backroad about 20 miles from the hotel and the truck used to tow the trailer was found not far from the hotel. The trailer and it's contents are still missing. stolen race car

I always loved the Duck Tales cartoons and now it's coming back. In 2017 new shows will be aired. All of the regular characters will be included in the new series. Now if Capitol Critters would come back, I'd be ecstatic. Duck Tales

Even if you're just moving across town, moving is not something that most people are eager to tackle. Packing, loading, transporting, unloading, and unpacking can be a daunting task. Now think about moving a whole town. That's what is going to have to happen for an island town of about 400 residents in Alaska named Kilvalina. With the ice caps melting, the town is in imminent danger of being flooded. So now comes the planning stage for moving knowing that a disaster could happen at anytime. moving a town

Now that the family has gotten a taste of fame and lost it, they are looking to get it back. They've been trying to sell their show to other networks. TLC is not having it though. They have threatened to take the family to court if they make money from another network before the contract with them runs out. So until June, Honey Boo Boo's family best be careful what they do. They've been paid for the entire un-aired season and need to stop being greedy. Here comes...

I am still amazed at the talent the Black River Bar and Grill is bringing to LaCrosse. I've gone a couple times since the beginning of the year and the comedians are amazing.
She was phenomenal! She was loud and hit it hard right from the start. Both had me laughing so much that tears were rolling.
Brad Ellis is from Kansas and we were fortunate to have him here in our little corner of the world. He's been a guest on some great comedy shows. He appeared at Black River Bar and Grill along with Maggie Faris.
Then last week I had the privilege of seeing
Mike Moses and Brad Tassell. Mike made it clear that he didn't need the mic to make himself heard which meant he could pick on anyone in the audience. Great show from him. Then Brad Tassell took the stage and insisted that he wasn't quite ready to start his portion of the show but he had us all laughing from beginning to end.
Not only does the Black River Bar and Grill bring in the best comics but it's an intimate atmosphere and the comedians are willing to chat a bit after the show. If you get a chance to attend one of their comedy nights, don't pass on it. ~terrie b~ ,,=^.^=,,

A poor swan apparently fell asleep and managed to get it's beak frozen shut. Luckily rescuers were able to get the swan indoors to thaw. If they had not, the swan would surely have died from lack of food.

The Black River Bar and Grill has comedy every Friday night through May. I've hosted a couple of times and been a member of the audience. Friday night was awesome. I met two new comics on Friday. They were great! Nola J. and Eric Dasilva filled the room with laughter from the minute they got on stage. Check out their websites and go to the Black River Bar and Grill for comedy on Friday nights starting at 8:30. Nola J. Eric Dasilva
