Via Margaret Rome-- HomeRome Realty (Author:Real Estate the Rome Way): When is a three car garage a four car garage? Let's begin to count.
First, there is the cute little metallic light brown 1974 Excalibur convertible. It has only 4,000 miles on it, but I bet they were all fun miles.
Next is the 1964 red convertible Lincoln Continental with the "suicide doors." (Front-opening doors are called "suicide doors" because, if the door becomes unlatched while the car is moving, the air pressure will pull the door open (12 comments)

Via Terry Chenier (Homelife Glenayre): This orangutang was in a rescue mission in South Carolina and doing poorly. He was depressed and slipping fast. One day, this Blue Tick Hound wandered in and they became the best of buddies.
Suryia the orangutang and Roscoe, the Blue Tick Hound.
They spend hours every day swimming together.
These two are inseparable.
These two see the funny side of most things...
...and there's always time to chill. Too bad we couldn't take a lesson from these two. (4 comments)
