Fashion rejuvenates women.

7 Nov

“Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejeuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous.”

~Coco Chanel

When Outrageous Was Possible

6 Nov

There was a time when an art form known as coachbuilding existed.
Back then, the coachbuilder did not have to answer to a CFO.
Back then, the coach builder did not have to compromise his vision due to government regulations.
Back then, the outrageous was possible.
The Lamborghini Countach could only have been born then.

Drive tastefully.

Guy Fawkes Day

5 Nov

The Fifth of November

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England’s overthrow.
But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
A stick and a stake
For King James’s sake!
If you won’t give me one,
I’ll take two,
The better for me,
And the worse for you.
A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down,
And a jolly good fire to burn him.
Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

Today is November 1st…which means it is mustache growing season! Though men across the world will not be growing mustaches for the sake of growing mustaches.
