STBCheckovWe open with the Enterprise about halfway through its 5 year mission with a disillusioned Captain Kirk. The ship heads to a space station that looks very luxurious. While there, a lone ship comes in requesting aid. The pilot mentions that her crew had to abandon their ship and land on a planet within the nearby nebula. The Enterprise heads out to help and gets ambushed. The crew of the Enterprise end up imprisoned on the planet by Krall. Kirk, Checkov, Spock, Bones, Scotty work with local resident Jaylah to free the prisoners and escape the planet. While they are planning their rescue, we learn that Krall is looking for a bio-weapon that was on-board the Enterprise and he wants to use it against the Federation.

TL;DR Enjoyed it. Felt like an episode in a good way. See this on the big screen!!

Pets of the Week July 25, 2016

Veronica3-year-old, 30 lb. Boston Terrier mix, Veronica, is a combination of terrier enthusiasm and Bulldog gentle sweetness and good sense. She has a sly sense of humor and loves to clown around. She is smart, enjoys plenty of attention and loves to be with people, especially if that means sitting on a lap or sharing a bed or sofa. She’s definitely a cuddler and a snuggler. Veronica can entertain herself, especially if she has a favorite toy or two, but she’d much rather be doing something with her family.

Gladys-PetuniaSlender, sleek, and silly are these satin black twin sisters. Gladys and Petunia were born in foster care and, now at 3-months-old, are more than ready to be adopted. These girls are fun with a capital “F” and, like human siblings, will flip-flop from playing to arguing for no evident reason. Adopting these two entertaining girls would bring lots of life and love to a home and figuring out which is which could be a fun family game.

Adoption fees waived for the pets of the week through Saturday!

Ghostbusters 2016

Official Site: GhostBusters.com/ghostbusters-2016/

Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth, Neil Casey

Synopsis:
ghostbusters_2016_watermarked_batch02_05Ghostbusters 2016 starts with Erin Gilbert, Abby Yates, Jillian Holtzmann, and Patty Tolan getting together as Ghostbusters. There is a sudden increase in spectral activity and intensity. As the Ghsotbusters visit each site, they find remnants of some kind of device that appears to be drawing the ghosts more fully into the material world.

Turns out there is a person placing lures out at hotspots along ley lines in the city. All to the purpose of thinning the barrier between the material and spiritual planes. It is up to the Ghostbusters to stop them.

TL;DR Glad the story is not a clone of the original, but the juvenile humor made it fall flat for me.

Pets of the Week July 11, 2016

Dill
Dill appears to be a young, mixed Carolina Dog. He is medium-sized, has the tell-tale tall ears, well-developed chest, and tucked up belly that are signature features of the breed. Another indication is that he’s a bit bashful. After learning that you’re a trustworthy soul, he will craftily sneak kisses and retreat to watch for your reaction. He finds security and comfort in order and calm. Allowing him to be in his comfort zone will help him to naturally and easily learn to step outside of it. Like a true puppy dog, he loves toys and to run around the yard. This young and active guy needs plenty of room to romp and play. Matched with the right person, Dill will be an amazing and loyal companion dog.

Munchie
Petite and delicate Munchie is as beautiful of a cat as there can be. Her apple green eyes are mesmerizing and her multi-colored coat of yellow, tan, and orange, with contrasting black tabby stripes, make her a visual stand-out in any crowd. Couple her looks with her laid back and loving personality and this cat is the whole package! She likes other cats and dogs and people of all ages. Munchie is a turn-key pet, if there ever was one.
