Academy Award®-Winning Kate Winslet Voices the Role of Black Beauty
Movie Adaptation of Classic Story Stars Mackenzie Foy, Iain Glen and Claire Forlani
BURBANK, Calif. (July 29, 2020) -Disney+ announced today that a contemporary adaptation of Anna Sewell’s classic 19th century novel, “Black Beauty” will premiere on the streaming service later this year. Black Beauty is a wild mustang born free in the American west. When she is captured and taken away from family, her story intertwines with that of 17-year old Jo Green, similarly grieving over the loss of her parents. The two slowly develop a bond that is built on love, respect and mutual healing.
“Black Beauty” features Oscar® winner Kate Winslet (“The Reader”) as the voice of “Black Beauty” and stars Mackenzie Foy (“Interstellar”) as Jo Green; Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones”) as John Manly; and Claire Forlani (“Meet Joe Black”) as Mrs. Winthorp.
“Black Beauty” is directed by Ashley Avis (“Adolescence'') who also wrote the screenplay…

Travel Friendly Premium Vodka for Camping Trips and Tailgating

This post is intended for persons 21 years of age and older.
Are you ready to hit the road for a hard earned road trip with your family or friends?  I was recently sent a sample of NEFT vodka and wanted to share information about it with you.
NEFT is an award winning vodka which is a two-time Double Gold medal winner in 2018 and 2019.  NEFT has also won Best Vodka from over 165 entrants in 2018, at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Unlike traditional vodka, NEFT ultra-premium vodka, comes uniquely packaged to make it perfect for travel.  In addition to a sleek glass bottle, the crafters created 750ml and 100ml barrels.  These barrels are more recyclable than glass, and virtually unbreakable. 
I found this vodka to have a nice scent, to be smooth with a pleasant dryness.  This has a nice natural taste that would be perfect for Bloody Mary, Moscow Mule and other popular drinks.

Common Disasters Across the US and How to Prepare for them

Disasters can occur wherever you are, but there are certain regions where specific accidents are far more likely. Some accidents are almost guaranteed not to happen (like getting a Winter Storm in Southern Texas). You need to have a good awareness of different disasters in your area, as well as what you need to do to avoid or prepare for them. 
The Disasters
• During an earthquake, you should drop, cover, and hold onto other people in your household.  • During a wildfire, you need to be ready to evacuate as soon as possible and keep your eyes on the news and your ears on local radio.  • For hurricanes, you should have an emergency kit and evacuation plan ready to go.  • In the case of volcanic eruption, make sure you have dust masks and goggles for everybody in your house.  • Tsunamis are hard to deal with, but you need to make sure you can evacuate from any location that you frequent to a safe place at least 2 miles inland.  • Landslides typically just require awareness of local evacuation …
