Laying like a bright green quilt across the rolling hills of central Malaysia, the tea plantations of the Cameron Highlands offer a visual treat from both above and below. They satisfy more than just the eye: Myriad tea rooms are dotted throughout the area and feature the local brews, and walking trails wind through the green fields. This sweeping, carved landscape is the largest hill station region in Malaysia. Named for the British geologist William Cameron, who mapped the area in 1885, the highlands have long been a rich agricultural resource in Southeast Asia

Lynda Carter attending the Emmy Awards in 1977
Before she was Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter was crowned Miss World America 1972. Carter grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. In high school, she played in a band called, The Relatives. Actor Gary Burghoff, from the TV show MASH, was the drummer. No, really. The group gigged at the Sahara Hotel and Casino lounge in Las Vegas for three months; and since Carter was underage at the time, she had to enter the club through the kitchen. Carter got her role of a lifetime on the TV show, Wonder Woman in 1976. She paid her dues before then with appearances on Starsky and Hutch and a Bill Cosby variety show called, Cos
Dalai Lama as a toddler (age 2 or 3)
His Holiness the Dalai Lama, or better yet, the 14th Dalai Lama, was born on 6 July 1935 to a farming and horse trading family in the small village of Taktser. In his autobiography, His Holiness writes: “During my early childhood, my family was one of twenty or so making a precarious living from the land there.” That's why he became self-described as a simple Buddhist monk. By the age of 6, His Holiness began his monastic education. His curriculum included logic, fine arts, Sanskrit grammar, and medicine; with the greatest emphasis on Buddhist philosophy. During the 1959 Tibetan uprising, he fled to India, where he currently lives as a refugee. In 1989, The 14th Dalai Lama received the Nobel Peace Prize.
John F. Kennedy playing peek-a-boo with his baby Caroline, 1957.
Here's Caroline Kennedy. She went from growing up in the White House to serving as the United States Ambassador to Japan until 2017. When Caroline was three-years old, her dad, John F. Kennedy, was sworn in as President of the United States - thus the family moved into the White House. She was five days away from her sixth birthday when her father was assassinated in Dallas on November 22, 1963. The following year, Caroline moved with her mother and little brother to a penthouse on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. She went on to receive a J.D. degree from Columbia Law School.
Mackinac Bridge, which connects Michigan's Upper and Lower Peninsula, under construction in 1957
Talk about one hell of a long bridge. Yes, we're talking 26,372 feet long. The Mackinac Bridge spans the Straits of Mackinac to connect Michigan's Upper and Lower Peninsulas. The bridge, also referred to as "Big Mac" and "Mighty Mac" - was open in 1957 and designed by engineer David B. Steinman. At the time, the bridge was known as the "world's longest suspension bridge between anchorages", which brought comparisons to San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. Japan surpassed the Mackinac Bridge when, in 1998, they completed the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge - which is 6,532 ft. Still the Mackinac Bridge is a mighty darn long bridge.

WWW.BRAKEFORIT.COM This Company Sponsored a Feature of 30 Photos from Cars that are : RESTOMOD . Here are just 6 Photos ; the remaining 25 Photos will be in the September 14 and 21st. Issues.
If you’re into vintage-looking cars, but you still want all of the power and flourishes of modern design, look no further than “restomodding.” The term “restomod” is just the combination of restoration and modification. People take old cars and deck them out with all of the latest and greatest gadgets in the automotive industry.
This is the best way to combine classic style and modern performance. They may have had the aesthetics down pat in the past, but modern-age cars can’t be beat when it comes to mechanics.
The Cars Below :
23) EAGLE SPEEDSTER 1984 JAGUAR E-TYPE
24) RING BROTHERS 1965 FORD MUSTANG "ESPIOAGE"
25) KINGSLEY RANGE ROVER
26) DAVID BROWN MINI
27) FUSION MOTOR CO. "ELEANOR" 1967 FORD SHELBY GT500

This used to be Tropical Motors...
A new Free Little Library... Down on Fort Street.
Just hiding out until it's time to come out....
The Village Kid strikes again. He/she is the one who does the cute geckos... I know it says 2016 but I've never seen this...
Dorthy Mays was a PB Playmate in July 1979. And no, she wasn't related to Willie Mays. But here she is in a photo - handling a bat. She was photographed for the PB centerfold by Richard Fegley. The cover of the July issue toted the, Girls of James Bond, to coincide with the release of the film, Moonraker. Mays was born in Nuremberg, Germany - and also worked as a hairdresser in Maryland at the time of her PB shoot. Fegley, on the other hand, began taking photos while in the U.S. Air Force. He joined PB in 1971 as a freelance photographer.
Brigitte Bardot shows her iconic style at the 1953 Cannes Film Festival. Rising to fame in the 1950s, BrigitteBardot has the status as the ultimate French style icon. Bardot was discovered by a magazine editor when she was just a teenager. She went on to became a muse for such famous fashion designers as Dior, Balmain and Pierre Cardin. Style-wise, Bardot is known for inventing the wide headband, the off-the-shoulder top, and the choucroute hairstyle. Here she is looking heavenly as she stands seaside at the 1953 Cannes International Film Festival. The off the shoulder neckline she's sporting became known as the Bardot neckline. The French actress rocked the look - which she accompanied with a flared mid-length skirt and waist-cinching belt. Ooh la la!
Instructions on "How to Kiss a Girl" from 1911.
Apparently in 1911, men didn't know how to kiss women - so instructions such as these were very helpful. Yes, long before the days of the #MeToo movement, men were being taught such nuggets of wisdom as "Do not tell her your intentions," and "Do not ask permission to kiss her." This all seems odd, but the intent really was to sell gum - sold by the Common Sense Gum company. These tips for girl- kissing came along with a stick of gum. The main takeaway from the kissing tips was to take the girl by surprise. Yikes! Creepy!
John Candy, 18-years-old, at Niagara Falls
John Candy was one of those guys who, even as a teenager, looked like an adult. By far, Candy is one of Canada's greatest comedy actors of all-time. He was born in 1950, in the town of Newmarket, Ontario, in the year 1950. He was the son of parents who were of Ukrainian and Polish heritage. Candy had an early passion for acting and began performing at the legendary Second City Theater in Toronto in the early 1970s. Before making it big, Candy appeared in a bunch of Canadian television shows - making his TV debut in an episode of something called, Police Surgeon. In 1976, Candy appeared in the American sketch comedy movie, Tunnel Vision - which also featured Chevy Chase.
Young Jamie Lee Curtis gives a scream queen look
Talk about getting into the family business. Jamie Lee Curtis was born on November 22, 1958 in Los Angeles, California. She got a foot up in the industry - being she is the daughter of two legendary actors. Her mom is Janet Leigh - who starred in Psycho, while her dad is Tony Curtis of Some Like It Hot fame. She got her first huge acting in 1978, when she starred in the low-budget horror film, Halloween. The movie went on to make tons of box office cash and cemented Curtis' career as a movie scream queen. In 1983, Curtis took a comedy turn by costarring in Trading Places with Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd.
John Cleese playing on the set of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"film. (1975)
Ha! What a great shot. Monty Python and the Holy Grail is almost everyone's pick for top ten comedy films of all-time. Though it turned out to be a hilarious film, nearly all the members of the Monty Python comedy troupe have said that they had a miserable time while filming the project. It was shot in cold, rainy Scotland. Funny enough, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album was partly responsible for the 1975 movie getting made. The band was such fans of Monty Python that they used royalties from the album to fund the movie. In fact, Pink Floyd was such fans of their TV show, Monty Python's Flying Circus, they would halt recording sessions just to watch. Thank you Pink Floyd for helping a great comedy cause.

South Florida Symphony Orchestra, founded by Maestra Sebrina María Alfonso 23 years ago, provides exciting and enriching cultural experiences through Masterworks concerts with internationally renowned guest solists in Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Key West. Guided by the belief that music is pivotal to community engagement, SFSO also brings vibrancy and strengthens public commitment to the arts through its transformative outreach and educational programming, including Symphony in the Schools for culturally underserved students.
After impressive career successes, Maestra Alfonso returned “home” to Key West, Florida, in 1997 to make a dream come true: bringing orchestral music, with all its associated educational and cultural benefits, to the southernmost island in the continental United States. In late 1998, with huge community support, the Key West Symphony made its debut. Subsequently renamed, the South Florida Symphony Orchestra (SFSO) is the only professional orchestra that performs full seasons in Key West, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
Award-winning Maestra Alfonso has established herself as a dynamic musical force. She is one of the few female conductors in the world. Her creativity has established SFSO as a leader in innovative collaborations, which are evolving the classical music art form and attracting new audiences.
