Cuccìa is prepared differently from family to family and in different regions. Some make cuccìa as soup, others as a pudding; and, in Kansas City, Missouri among Sicilian-Americans, cuccìa is prepared as a hot-cereal, but most traditional preparations add sugar, butter and milk. Ceci beans (chickpeas), known to Americans as garbanzo beans are also associated with the eating of cuccìa; but, more rarely, as are almonds and ricotta. Within the Italian context the term "cuccìa" itself is uniquely Sicilian and unrelated to similarly spelled Italian words hinting at foreign origins. Cuccìa may owe its origins to Sicily's Byzantine period (535-965 AD) since a variant of cuccìa, koliva, is also prepared in the Balkans; but, the most likely candidate for its origin may be its most similar counterpart, kutia, (pronounced kùtcha) an identical dish served throughout the Ukraine, Russia, and Poland. As in Sicily, this is eaten only during the Christmas season and, like the Sicilian dish, its basic preparation (boiled weat and honey instead of sugar) remains strikingly similar. Another theory gives Arabic origins to the word cuccìa since the Arabic word of kiskiya references, both, grain and the earthenware that held the grain, and Sicily was dominated by Arabic peoples that gave rise to many foods iconic to Sicilian cuisine.

The train was placed in regular service between Kansas City (Kansas City, Missouri), Missouri, Omaha (Omaha, Nebraska) and Lincoln (Lincoln, Nebraska), Nebraska, on November 11, 1934, replacing a pair of steam locomotives and six heavyweight passenger cars (Passenger car (rail)), weighing up to eight times as much as the ''Zephyr''. By June 1935, it proved popular enough to add a fourth car, providing additional coach seating. The fourth car was originally a 40-seat coach number 525, but the following June it was switched to Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul) service, then back to the ''Pioneer Zephyr'' in December. Car 525 remained on the train until June 1938. Just over five years after it was introduced, the ''Pioneer Zephyr'' crossed the one million mile mark in regular service on December 29, 1939, near Council Bluffs (Council Bluffs, Iowa), Iowa. In 1948 and 1949, the ''Pioneer Zephyr'' was temporarily removed from service to participate in the Chicago Railroad Fair's "Wheels A-Rolling" pageant. The fair's purpose was to celebrate 100 years of railroad history west of Chicago, and ''Pioneer Zephyr'' ' s role in the pageant was to highlight the latest strides in railroad technology. It resumed regular passenger operations when the fair ended on October 2, 1949. Chicago Railroad Fair Official Guide Book (1949).

It is the central city of the Kansas City metropolitan area, a region spanning the Kansas–Missouri border. Founded in the 1830s as a port on the Missouri River and originally called Kansas, this became confusing upon the establishment of Kansas Territory in 1854, creating the name Kansas City to distinguish the two.

It is one of two county seats of Jackson County. The 18th and Vine Neighborhood (18th and Vine-Downtown East, Kansas City) gave birth to the musical styles of Kansas City jazz and Kansas City blues. It is also known for Kansas City-style barbecue. The area is infamous for the Border War that occurred during the American Civil War, including the Battle of Westport and Bleeding Kansas. Large suburbs include Independence (Independence, Missouri) and Lee's Summit (Lee's Summit, Missouri) in Missouri and Overland Park (Overland Park, Kansas), Olathe (Olathe, Kansas) and Kansas City (Kansas City, Kansas) in Kansas.
