    I used to live on St. Croix in the Virgin Islands as a teenager and swam at this beach. It picks me up to see this picture every day. Gee to be a carefree kid again..... No worries worse than did I get enough iodine in my baby oil, did I put enough Sun In in my hair for those wanted blond streaks, will my boobies ever GROW?! Those were the days!

    For National Car Collector Appreciation Day Friday.

    Collector Car Appreciation Day Set for July 9, by U.S. Senate Decree

    Collector Car Appreciation Day Set for July 9, by U.S. Senate Decree

    DIAMOND BAR, California — In the midst of other pressing matters such as the congressional investigation into unintended acceleration of Toyota vehicles, the U.S. Senate managed to pass a resolution naming July 9 as the first Collector Car Appreciation Day.

    SEMA lobbyists were behind the effort, hoping for a grassroots groundswell to propel the day forward. SEMA said it is updating its Web site to list Collector Car Appreciation Day events in cities and towns around the U.S. It's clear they hope July 9 will take on the weight and importance of such holidays as Mother's Day and Thanksgiving.

    July 9 is pretty wide open for a new holiday. It currently marks Argentina's Independence Day, as well as Rock 'n' Roll Day, according to the Web site 123 Greetings. It is also the birthday of O.J. Simpson and Courtney Love.

    As designated by U.S. Senate Resolution 513, lawmakers set aside the special day to recognize "that the collection and restoration of historic and classic cars is an important part of preserving the technological achievements and cultural heritage of the United States."

    SEMA said in a statement that "Americans are encouraged to celebrate the inaugural event by finding and attending a Collector Car Appreciation Day event or organizing their own events."

    "art" my wife and I made with my old bottle cap collection. We've been doing some cleaning and this was a use it or lose it item -- thank goodness for ikea and cheap frames, lol. Never had I envisioned this as an 8 year old picking up caps from any and everywhere...

    Our wine cork collection also came out pretty well. It's crazy, but they actually look pretty good hanging on a wall...
    I knew everything at 18, and know nothing at 38.
    I'm happier knowing nothing.

    Awww Unk! What a sweetheart!
    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "Happy." They told me I didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life. - John Lennon
