Amish Object To Bright Safety Triangles On Their Buggies, Looking To Draft A New Bill

March 28, 2012

FRANKFORT, KY. — A bill to provide an alternative for Amish buggy drivers who object to using bright safety triangles on their vehicles was approved Tuesday by the House and is headed to Gov. Steve Beshear.

Senate Bill 75 was approved by a vote of 75-21.

Rep. Johnny Bell, D-Glasgow, who had sponsored similar legislation in the House, said the Senate version had only “minute differences,” including permitting the use of one-inch-wide white or silver tape instead of the two-inch white tape authorized by the House bill, and he recommended its passage.

Amish object to safety stickers on buggies, concerned it may affect wind resistance.

First Lady Booed, Nascar Fans Refused To Have Their Palates Adjusted

November 21, 2011

First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden were   grand marshals at today’s NASCAR season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, appearing as part of their charitable campaign to support military veterans and their families.

But their benign, bipartisan cause wasn’t enough to prevent public fallout from the nation’s polarized political climate as they were introduced before the crowd.

ESPN video from the event documented loud boos from some in the stands as the announcer named Obama and Biden, seconds before they delivered the “most famous words in motorsports,” telling drivers to start their engines.

99-Year Old Nascar Fan Drives On Track, Rolls Back The Clock

April 27, 2011

 A die-hard Nascar fan got to live out her fantasy at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Tuesday.

Rachel Gilbert, who is approaching her 100th birthday, got to take a few laps around the track.

Gilbert, a Nascar fan since she and her husband went to The Daytona 500 50 years ago, sounded a little bit overwhelmed. She was aiming to hit 100 miles per hour.

“I wish I could have (reached 100 mph), you know, but I went up to 53 or 54,” said Gilbert. 

She added I was going so fast sometimes I felt like I was going backwards.

Ask the Eye..Get Back Jack

Dear Eye View,
A few months before my husband and I got married, I found out by accident that he wears a toupee. As we lay in bed one night, I noticed what looked like hairspray or gel buildup on his hairline. He was fast asleep, so I went to scratch it off, and what I thought was gel turned out to be the tape of his toupee! Here he had been wearing a toupee all this time, and I never had the faintest idea. I’m sure he’s painfully embarrassed about it, as he’s very particular about his appearance, but I’m his wife and hate knowing he’s keeping this from me. Do I somehow gently confront him about this? I’m nervous to do so, because I think he would be extremely embarrassed. In the end, I want him to know that I love him no matter what he looks like, and he shouldn’t feel like he has to wear a hairpiece.

Dear Bald Is Beautiful

This is a very touchy subject so proceed with caution..I agree hair is way over rated, especially for your guy who is  very particular about one’s appearance…Tell him to lose the hairpiece so he can be himself. Then tell him how much you love freshly cut hair on a man. Hope this helps..
