Fanny Brice Of The The Ziegfeld Follies

Fanny Brice Of The The Ziegfeld Follies

VAV!/February 29, 2012

"I breathed and ate and drank and lived theater -- in my neighborhood were all the nationalities of all of Europe. That is where I learned my accents; the Polish woman with her intonation rising up like chant. I saw Loscha of the Coney Island popcorn counter and Marta of the cheeses at Brodsky's Delicatessen and the Sadies and the Rachels and the Birdies at the Second Avenue dance halls. They all welded together and came out staggeringly true to type in one big authentic outline." ~Fanny Brice, 1936

Stuckey's - RELAX, REFRESH, REFUEL.

VAV!/November 25, 2014 Stuckey's, what's not to love? Since the 1930's, generations of Americans have known and loved Stuckey's as a venerable roadside tradition!  Stuckey's humble beginnings was launched as a Pecan stand in Eastman, Georgia,  in 1937 by W.S. Stuckey, Sr.  That little stand and others like it soon became THE mecca for folks traveling down America's super sonic highway in the never ending quest of adventure.  You could bet the rear wheel of your 1946 Ford Super Deluxe Woody Wagon that Stuckey's would have everything from a car fill up and restroom to souveniers, hot snacks, soft drinks, and pecan candy bars!   Easily recognized by the pitched roof and teal blue shingles, Stuckeys was an empire!

One of Brad's interests is professional model-building, a past time which has kept him busy for more than 25 years.   His focus is on yesterdays' roadside Americana.  All of Brad's models, are hand crafted from his own design, right down to the most minute details incorporating cardstock, plastic styrene, and real glass. No attention is spared on the details, either. He takes care to add features that make his final product as realistic as the real thing.

VAV!/November 24, 2014 'We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions. While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change. We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen. Join with us in our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera. We respectfully ask that you please keep your protests peaceful. Answering violence with violence is not the appropriate reaction. Let's not just make noise, let's make a difference'  -Michael Brown's family statement in response to Grand Jury Decision in the shooting death of their son Michael Brown Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager, was shot and killed on Aug. 9, 2014 by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo., a suburb of St. Louis.
