"When someone does something well, applaud! You will make two people happy." - Samuel Goldwyn

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
A Pastor and his wife needed to fly to several cities, so to make the itinerary easy, they chose to fly with the same airline. This turned several 50 minute flights into 4 hour flights because of the layovers due to infrequent connecting flights.
In the midst of one of these layovers, the wife went up to the counter to get their boarding passes. After reaching the counter, she turned to her husband and said, "Honey, they need to see our ID's."
"Why," he responded "they checked them when we entered the terminal." When she called back to him that it was the regulations, he barked, "Well, that's Dumb!" Right then he heard the Lord say to him, "Now, that was dumb."
After this, the Pastor argued with God about apologizing for about 15 minutes. Finally he went up to the counter and asked for forgiveness before boarding the airplane. We get yelled at a lot, but no one's ever come up and asked for forgiveness before." Said the surprised woman behind the counter.
After boarding the plane and taking their seats toward the rear of the plane, a stewardess came up to the Pastor and his wife and informed them that they were in the wrong seats. She brought them up and seated them in First Class. The woman behind the counter had moved their seats because of the heartfelt apology.
God wants to take us First Class, but how many times have we settled for coach because of our own actions and responses to God's trials?

Tucker '48, "Car of Tomorrow"
In 1946 Preston Tucker took on the Automobile Industry with a new and radically safe set of design and engineering standards. Among the innovations on the Tucker '48, named for the actual production model year, were a wider wheelbase, safety windshields, and a center headlight that turned in the direction being steered. Working with Harry Miller at the Indianapolis 500 during the 1930s allowed for a great deal of practical experience and led to Preston Tucker taking over the space once used as a Ford Tri-Motor engine plant during WWII for production of a new line of automobiles (the facility is now the Ford City Mall in Chicago ( http://www.shopfordcity.com/ )). The Auto Industry didn't take kindly to
the "Car of Tomorrow" and as a result, only 51 Tucker '48s were manufactured. On a side note, a restored Tucker '48, the 45th of the 51 produced was sold this year by the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company ( http://barrett-jackson.com/ ) for $315,000. Tucker Automobile Pages, http://www.tuckerclub.org/
The Tucker Automobile Club of America, Inc. is a group of Tucker enthusiasts, and the Tucker Automobile Pages offer an introduction to one of the most amazing stories in the history of the automobile. Information about the club and pointers to related sites provide additional resources for anyone interested in this amazing car and the man who built it.
