Wow, there are tons of vintage aprons sewing patterns here! Pretty cool. I am not a "sewing" person, but it was fun to see aprons like the ones that were worn in those 1950's tv shows like in "I Love Lucy".

Humpty Dumpty has always fascinated me. It's really hard to find any old memorabilia on the web, so I was glad to see this page. This is my second post about him, that's how much I like him ;-) Here is a Humpty collection from "barbiedoll_94531" (webshots). Most of the stuff here are mini statues. I've never really seen much of Humpty Dumpty before. Well, I had a Humpty Dumpty stuffed toy when I was little. It was so cool.

The sites below are great starting points. if you learn. There are also excellent links from the university's site.

This is another bus site, but it is different from the one that I pubished a few days ago. There are school busses and transit busses prior to 1965 in display. So these are are older ones. This site is actually about preserving and restoring those busses. It's cool to see how school busses used to look like, after restoring them. These busses are fascinating. Personally, I have never seen busses this old, except in old movies. I've only seen old cars. Check out the galleries. There are pictures of both restored and non restored busses. Some of the busses are strange looking.

I went to the Las Vegas Neon Boneyard Museum's website, but it's mostly text, not many pictures. So, I've been looking for photos elsewhere. I wish I'd known about it when I went to Vegas several years ago. If you are going to LV, you might want to check it out. They do have tours.
Stan Cline is a painter from Las Angeles who focuses on nostalgia. The demise of many of the old landmarks in LA inspired Cline to paint them, in order for us to remember these landmarks during their heydays. He paints them on canvas and has a unique style. They seem so delicate. His painting cover 13 areas and a misc section. They include but are not limited to, baseball stadiums, gas stations, amusement park and drives-in.

Many of you probably have seen pictures of impersonators or saw them live. Elvis seems to be quite the popular choice for the impersonators. This is the official Celebrities Impersonators Convention that just had their 8th annual convention. There is an option for you to search for celebrity impersonator. Just type it in (to get there, click on "international celebrities image" on the bottom).
