Detroit MI: Zombie Amusement Park Proposed


Detroit has many attractions, including the Henry Ford Museum, Motown Museum, Zoo, Detroit Institute of the Arts and several upscale casino-hotels. But, with the downturn of the economy, the city has not been high on the list of vacation destinations.

Now, someone in Detroit has come up with an idea to build something that could resemble a haunted Disney amusement park. Tentatively called Z World, it would be inhabited by spooky features and creatures from currently-popular films and TV programs featuring zombies. 

The most interesting and oddest part of the proposal is that the theme park’s setting will be based on stark reality. It would be built on what is now the most blighted, rundown area of the financially- and socially-troubled city. The zombie theme will fit right in with what has become a poverty-haunted war zone. The promoters believe Z World will bring jobs, repairs, new construction, visitor money and many other benefits into an area that badly needs as much help as it can get.

Fly Clean With Wipes & Never Use Aircraft Seat Pocket PDF Print E-mail


Medical experts advise you to steer clear of that little holder bag on the back of the seat in front of you. Too often, bare feet, dirty diapers, outdated food and soiled underwear are stashed in them.

It’s also a good idea to take disposable medicated tissues aboard, and before you sit down, wipe off the headrest, seatbelt buckle and tray table. Also, when you gotta go into airport and aircraft toilets, wipe off the inside handle of the doors and other surfaces. With the spread of coronavirus, it’s always wise to fly as hygienically as possible, or not fly until the problem settles down.

 
Gripe: Why Do Coach Airline Seats Keep Getting Smaller? PDF Print E-mail


Q: For business, I fly often and necessarily as cheap as possible. At six feet three inches tall, I’m getting more uncomfortable each time I travel by air. It’s because of greedy airline jam us into ever smaller spaces. How can I avoid it? PLJ, Memphis TN

A: Of course, it’s inconvenient painful and potentially dangerous for big passengers. If there must be a quick evacuation, there’s the danger of being unable to get out of your seat in a hurry. The best advice to find more reasonable fares to fly in larger spaces is to keep checking for special prices, such as midweek and red eye flights. Also, choose to cut back on other travel expenses and pay for the pricier seats when you fly.

 
Philly PA: Eat Where Hamilton, Franklin & Adams Dined PDF Print E-mail


More than six million people annually visit Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park in the downtown area. When eating there in two-centuries old City Tavern, they can "be in the room where it happened” as sung in the musical, "Hamilton."

Just a short walk from Independence Hall, where America’s Founding Fathers created a new nation, is the popular restaurant. Opened in 1773, it was where members of the First Continental Congress gathered to dine and drink. Few things have changed, except dinner in 1776 was $1. Today it’s $50. www.10best.com/interests/food-travel/dine-like-its-1776-historic-city-tavern-philadelphia
