Park it in the Ole Garage

Back in 1945 department stores such as JC Penny’s and Macy’s made available for consumer consumption a small aircraft.  It was the spin-proof Ercoupe and the ads claimed that if one could drive a car, one could fly one of these planes.  “Every family can own one.” 

I saw one on display at the Carolina Aviation Museum while passing through Charlotte, North Carolina (top photo).  Wanted to trade my rental car in for it!

“Photographer Baron Wolman and a writer were sitting in the reception area of the Beatles’ Apple Corps offices on Savile Row, waiting to interview and photograph George Harrison. He appeared a few minutes early, plopped down on the couch and started reading a copy of Bob Dylan’s book, Don’t Look Back.” - rockpaperphoto.com

“THE MORE THAT YOU READ, THE MORE THINGS YOU’LL KNOW. THE MORE THAT YOU LEARN, THE MORE PLACES YOU’LL GO.” -Dr. Seuss

Reading is my stress reliever, my passion and inspiration. I’m easily captivated by those mystery genres and I think that’s what it really goes. Even how problematic, sad and confused you are, but still books can ease those emotions. It’s like a vitamin that when you intake, all the things will come into order. Yes, not all people loves reading, but if you’ll practice it often, you’ll learn to love and appreciate the nature of it. Give it a try and explore the world with just a blink of an eye.

Reading books enable readers to:
•enhanced the minds
•reduces stress
•enjoy
•increase vocabulary
•improves memory
•improves writing skills
*Be a good reader and start reading books guys, because the true knowledge comes from the books not from the….. 😘

_please comment a book that you’d already read 😃😃😃

The Beatles. I love the Beatles. The very first song in my memory is ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret?’ (EDDIE SINGS THE CHORUS) For years, I thought John was singing that song, but then I realized it was George. I remember standing by a radio and just listening to that song. Growing up, I liked all the stuff that everyone else was listening to, like Motown, but the biggest group of all was The Beatles.

September Halloween Challenge: 30 Days of Halloween Movie Trivia

6/30 >>> In an earlier draft of “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, Oogie Boogie was originally going to be Dr. Finklestein in disguise. Tim Burton was so upset about this that he literally kicked a hole into a wall in anger. 

Bonus Fact! Some of the Christmas toys that Jack delivers to the children of Christmas Town reference other Tim Burton films. For example, the shrunken head and snake are from “Beetlejuice”, and the duck and cat are from “Batman Returns”.

17 September 1970: George and Ravi held a press conference to publicize the Festival of Indian Arts, the first such even to take place in Britain.

“George Harrison [with his back to the camera] and his friend, sitar-playing Ravi Shankar, were together again helping to promote a festival of Indian Arts, music and dance to be held at London’s Royal Festival Hall. Harrison, who has kept out of the public eye for the best part of a year, explained that he was trying to remain anonymous, but was anxious to help publicize the festival.
Shankar and Harrison have been friends for some years since George became interested in Indian music and spiritualism. After watching short recitals by classical Indian singer Girija Devi, and some beautifully delicate dancing by Uma Sharma, George explained his interest in the music. He said: ‘It is music you live. You could call it soul music. I’ve heard most of the musicians before in Bombay and I would like to think that others went going to be aware of them.’
Asked if he still played the sitar, he said: ‘No. It would take me about ten years to study it, and I have other things which have to be done. The more I’ve learned about it the more I’ve realized how little I know.’” - Press caption from 1970; photos presumably by Ian Showell/Keystone/Getty Images.
