OMAHA, Neb. — A Nebraska teenager has lots to smile about after he snapped the latest viral celeb photo.

On Sunday night, Murray, 16, took a photo of his friend Tom White on an Omaha, Neb., sidewalk — standing in front of Warren Buffett and Paul McCartney as the two men sat casually on a bench in the background. White tweeted the image, and by Monday it had gone viral.

“Chillin with my homies” said White’s tweet, which linked to a copy of the image on Instagram.

Murray, White and another boy took a series of photos with the two men on Sunday, according to Murray’s father, John.

The image was later re-tweeted by Paul McCartney’s Twitter handle on Monday afternoon.

Earlier in the evening, the billionaire CEO of Berkshire Hathaway and the Cute Beatle had dinner at Avoli Osteria, an Italian…

Space tourists could blast off from UK in 2018

Space tourism in our lifetime

FOX 4 Kansas City WDAF-TV | News, Weather, Sports

(CNN) — Britain will launch the world’s first spaceport outside the U.S., with first space tourists blasting off from the UK as early as 2018.

The details were revealed Tuesday at the Farnborough Air Show in Hampshire, England. The UK government outlined eight possible locations of the port — one in Wales, one in England and six in Scotland, despite the independence referendum which Scotland holds in September.

“Space is big business for the UK. It already contributes $19 billion to the economy each year, supporting nearly 35,000 jobs,” UK Business Secretary Vince Cable said.

Until now, the UK had limited its involvements in space programs, launching rockets from Australia rather than constructing its own facility.

spacetourism2The UK government has expressed the ambitious target of capturing 10 percent of the global space sector, quadrupling the value of the nation’s industry to $68 billion a year.

“We have worked out the…

Internet Builder Consulting Gives Back

Good to see successful Kansas City businesses giving back and helping the community!

Internet Builders Consulting Websites, SEO & Social

The last few years have been tough for many Americans and tougher for many of the builders and real estate professionals we have the pleasure of working with.  When I founded my company in 1995 I named it Builder Consulting because we were building computers, networks and websites while providing computer and Internet consulting.  I knew many people in the real estate industry so naturally that was a strong part of the business with many of the builders taking my word that this whole ‘Internet Thing’ was going to be BIG.
