Cuban Car Care

Cuba…with two presidential candidates of Cuban heritage and the president rethinking our relationship with Cuba, this island country has been in the news more often lately.  Since the embargo, many of our ideas about Cuba have been shaped by the Elian Gonzales saga and for better or worse, re-runs of I Love Lucy and Desi Arnaz.  Cuba is also known for their national fleet of classic US cars.  Cubans are masters of car upkeep, probably in large part due to the embargo of 1961.  Regardless of how you feel about the current debate about going forward with Cuba, you have to admire the Cuban dedication to preserving classic cars.

Nothing Like A Jeep

Nothing may be more patriotic than driving a Jeep.  The original Jeep went into production in 1941 specifically for the military, arguably making them the oldest SUVs.   The Jeep became the primary light 4-wheel-drive vehicle of the United States Army and the Allies during WWII.  But what about the funny name?  A dictionary of military slang, published in 1942, in the library at The Pentagon gives this definition: Jeep: A four-wheel drive vehicle of one-half- to one-and-one-half-ton capacity for reconnaissance or other army duty.

Sociology Of Short Skirts

If women in the U.S. wore shorter skirts, the economy would improve. That’s not a misogynist’s dream, it’s sociology research.  Sociologists have found that the worse the economy, the longer the women’s skirts are, and the better the economy, the shorter the skirt.  Ladies, rock those short skirts and watch the economy improve.  We’ve got great shoes to pair with short skirts.  We don’t think of Nikes for anything but athletic shoes, but they have an impressive stock of sandals and flip flops.  The Nike Lunarsandiator Sky Hi is a sandal fit for a lady gladiator.

They may look relatively small, but our feet contain a whopping 250,000 sweat glands. Through your morning run, standing all day at work, chasing your progeny around the park and staying vertical long enough to make dinner and scrub the dishes, your feet can produce over half of pint of sweat.

To prevent odorous footwear and keep your planter surfaces fresh, try these remedies. Give your feet some air:  Feet go into sweat production overdrive when they are shoved into snug, closed-in shoes.
