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!

Roadside Americana - Nostalgic Scale Models

Pictured above:  White Haven Motor Lodge in Overland Park, Kansas VAV!/November 25, 2014 Brad Moore is an architectural graduate who lives in Overland Park, Kansas. 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.

Chaotic Situation In Ferguson, MO Following The Grand Jury Decision

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.
