A new green energy group developed a efficient way to capture and siphon the hot air from Washington DC and put it to work is creating excitement in a micro-industry in aeronautics.

No wonder 'the mummy' is always peeved, they did all that planning and stashing of stuff for a wonderful afterlife then some silly sod brings him back home with nothing. That would certainly annoy me.

You bet! A couple of strategically-placed 4K GoPros (incl helmet-mounted) and a camera drone for the distance shots.

Ex Pres. Obama pedals his wares westward to Palm Springs after the peaceful transition on the 20th! Boeing has delivered the first "Executive One" liner after Trump's request for budgetary reductions for Air Force One.

After the first storm, Michele put down at the nearest airport, and is already in Palm Springs.
