Fun Fact Friday - 05/09/14

I'm going to try to start  "Fun Fact Friday" where every Friday I'll come up with a fun fact about myself, just for fun.  I was just sitting here in the weather center thinking to myself, "I'd love a cup of coffee right now".  Fun fact:  I LOVE coffee.  I drink a lot of it.  (probably more than I should)  When I use to work on the morning shift, people would always ask me how I looked so awake at an ungodly hour.  My answer was always... COFFEE! 

I picked up drinking coffee like most others.  It was in college when I'd be up late studying for a big test the next day.  My mother always told me if I was going to drink coffee, drink it black.  It's easier to order and it has no calories.  So I did.  Now I like drinking black coffee for the taste and smell of it.  Don't you just love a hot cup of coffee?  And is it just me, or is the coffee at the end of dinner the best tasting coffee you can get.  Why is that?  Yum.  :)

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. (AP) -- The Royals could have used Mickey Cobb's ring last night. Cobb was Kansas City's long-time athletic trainer. He says some crooks have ripped-off his 1985 World Series Championship ring. Cobb tells WDAF-TV the ring is a good luck charm. He had hoped to wear it as the Royals opened the American League Division Series against Houston. The Royals lost to the Astros in Game 1, 5-2.


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- That's a wrap -- for filming at L.A. public schools. The Los Angeles Unified School District has temporarily banned movie and TV filming on campuses. The move follows a report that a porno was shot at Hamilton High School, including a scene featuring public nudity in the school's front parking lot. KNBC-TV also reports some productions caused parking problems for teachers and led to classes being relocated or cancelled sports practices. The district has earned an estimated $10 million from filming over the past five years.


TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- Hey buddy, can you spare some pandas? That was the gist of a message sent by Washington state lawmakers to Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng). The Chinese leader visited the U.S. last month, including a stop in Washington state. State lawmakers gave the Chinese president a letter asking that his nation consider lending pandas to the Pacific Northwest. One state senator tells the News Tribune in Tacoma that it could take a year or more for pandas to arrive if the Chinese want to proceed. Only four zoos in the U.S. have pandas, including the National Zoo in the nation's capital.


ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- In this case, Elvis isn't the king of rock-and-roll. He's a king cobra snake and now Elvis is back. A woman in the Orlando, Florida, area heard hissing coming from under a clothes dryer in her garage. The sound was from a king cobra snake that had been missing for more than a month. Three animal control officers used special tongs to capture the 10-foot-long serpent. The snake was returned to owner Mike Kennedy, who lives about a-half mile from where it was found. Kennedy has also pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge for failing to immediately report the snake missing.
