JUDY MOODY and the Not Bummer Summer family screening giveaway ends 6/1 Pittsburgh–CLOSED

***Last UPDATE*** After several redraws (winner declines) the final winner and taker is Trisha.  Congrats Trish, have fun!***

You kids may have read some of JUDY MOODY best-selling book series by Megan McDonald. Now you can catch her on the big screen in the new movie:


When her best-laid plans for a summer full of fun go comically awry, an imaginative young girl creates her own vacation adventures in Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer. Based on the beloved, bestselling book series by Megan McDonald, Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer is an irresistible and delightfully funny treat for adventure-loving kids and adults.
This summer, Judy Moody is planning the most super-duper, double-rare summer vacation ever with best friends Rocky and Amy. Except that it turns out Rocky is going to circus camp to learn to tame lions, and Amy is headed off to Borneo with her mom to save a lost tribe while Judy stays home with her pesky little brother Stink and second-best friend Frank Pearl.
Just when she thinks things are as rotten as they can be, her parents announce that they will be going to California and Judy will have to stay behind with her Aunt Opal, who she’s never even met! It looks like Judy’s best summer ever has just become her way worst summer ever.
But feisty, fearless and ever-funny Judy Moody never gives up! With help from some unexpected sources, she’s headed for a summer full of surprises in this charming and spirited family film. Get ready, get set, get MOODY!

Rated PG JUDY MOODY and the NOT Bummer Summer is a fun summer movie for the whole family.   Staring Jordana Baily, Heather Graham, Parris Mosteller, and Jaleel White

Preparing for a Zombie Apocalypse or…real natural disasters

The CDC has an article published on their blog. I have to admit it’s very eye catching and interest peaking. The title of the article? Social Media: Preparedness 101 Zombie Apocalypse. I know it sounds crazy but it’s actually a good article. It’s types for a natural disaster: what you should pack, what you should do, etc. But it keeps your attention. 

Here is a link to the post:

If you're ready for a zombie apocalypse, then you're ready for any emergency.
