In 1949 I returned to the National Executive Committee of the ANC. #anc#1949#committee
This isn’t perfect BUT it will definitely work, since this stainless paint kit was $25 on Amazon vs buying a new stove to match my new stainless fridge. This white stove came with our house and looks practically new. I didn’t want to get rid of it just because it doesn’t match my other appliances. This project took several hours but I’m happy with the results. Swipe to see the product I used. #ellis1949bungalowreno#liquidstainlesssteel
#OTD The keel for the aircraft carrier USS United States is laid down at Newport News Drydock and Shipbuilding. However, construction is canceled five days later, resulting in the Revolt of the Admirals.

70 years ago this photo was taken in the Capital of Ireland - Dublin. That was the day our little yet great country became a Republic thus ending our membership of the British Commonwealth in what was always a long and blood-filled relationship. Yes I live in the U.K. now and yes, I love where I live. However I will always be a proud Irish man, and I am always proud of my home - particularly of the power our country gives to the people, thanks in part to that title of Republic. Happy 70th to the Republic! 💚Sláinte na hÉireann! 🇮🇪 #republicofireland#ireland#70years#oconnellstreet#history#irish#irishpride#proud#home#love#freedomfighters#1949
This man turns 70 today! 🎉🍾 What a special day it is. If you don’t know Bill Perkins, you’re missing out on something special.

I am so grateful God has blessed you with 70 amazing years, and this is only just the start 😉 We love you so very much! ❤️
"Jeder kennt wohl einen wilden Knaben,
der eigenwillig alles anders macht,
als es die Sitte vorschreibt.
Hoetger ist auch heute noch ein solcher Junge, dem man nicht böse sein kann.
Vielleicht ist es der Jahrgang. Hoetger ist 74er und die Burgunder- und Bordeauxweine aus 74 sind heute noch so frisch und jung wie je."

SURFS UP DUDE!!! We have been doing the old car thing for a long time and we just rarely ever get to play with one of these. I know the work "icon" gets over used in this line of work, but let's face it, the late 49 Ford Woody Wagon is just that. This one is not only an icon but the quality and detail are fabulous. The black paint is nearly flawless and the exterior wood looks like an 18th Century New England craftsman had did it all, just the other day. Look closely at the interior wood graining, it looks as real at the exterior wood maybe even nicer. The custom interior is very tasteful and expertly crafted also. The chrome and glass are superb and there is plenty of chrome on these babies. Not only does this one look stunning in it's velvet smooth Ebony Black paint but it drives better than any original 49 Ford could. The drive train has been updated with a newer GM V8 dressed up like it would have been in 1956 with custom valve covers and an air breather that screams 50's Baby! The trans is a smooth shifting Turbo 350 that feeds the highway friendly 9 inch 3.00 rear end effortlessly. The body panels, floors and frame rails are all as solid as you could want. So, if heading for the beach, the club, or the grocery store arrive in style and be the coolest cat in the parking lot. Oh yea, we do have a surf board to go with it.
