    Gerald Ford issued the most infamous pardon in U.S. history on September 8, 1974. That was one day shy of just one month after Nixon left office. The decision essentially guaranteed Ford would serve only the 28 months left in Nixon's second term in office because Ford's approval rating dropped like a rock.

    Betterer than the peck of trouble caused by a white Ford Bronco, probably given by Hertz to a very violent man.:eek:

    Skierized Ford Broncos are readily available at Denver Int'l Airport's Hertz.

    Don't think there's any current Denver Bronco superstar doing a commercial for Hertz.

    On trips from the Bay Area to L.A., I would often drive by Pea Soup Andersen's on the I-5.

    Arthur Andersen LLP used to be the Big 6, then the Big 5 up until the Enron fiasco. Subsequently, AABC [Arthur Andersen Business Consulting] firms were bought out by other consulting companies in 2002 by: Deloitte, Hitachi Consulting, IBM [formerly PwC Consulting] and BearingPoint [formerly KPMG].

    In the early 80s when I was in NY, I remember seeing signs in the subway "Flatbush".

    The Brooklyn Dodgers were known as The Boys Of Flatbush and played at Ebbets Field in the Flatbush section of the borough.

    I would be inclined to think that @Mike Bulgakov wouldn't mind Brooke Shields' iconic bushy eyebrows that made her famous so much so Andre had to see [sans expensive medical expenses] for himself, at least for a while.;)

    The boroughs of Kings (Brooklyn) and Queens are bushy areas as evidenced by the neighborhoods Flatbush and Bushwick respectively. @Mike Bulgakov might be advised when traveling there to bring protective eyewear or heavily subsidize the Brazilian wax retail industry so more of the B&T (Bridge and Tunnel) ladies will be kinder to his peepers.

    Is there a four seasons to waxing? Like, Alaskan for the Winter, must stay warm so a little off the sides would suffice. Aloha, it's time for a Spring clean, so leave it barely there. In the hot and humid summertime--go Brazilian--strip the whole thing off! And O Canada! Understood. It's perfect in the Fall.

    There are many bush varieties in many parts of Australia.

    Tina Turner was born and raised in a small town in Tennessee that she sang about in "Nutbush City Limits."

    J M Turner was born and lived in London, England. Well known for his landscapes and turbulent seascapes.

    The Beeb touring "car" probably won't be added to The Bieb's collection of exotic vehicles, although it is close in size to the pop singer's Smart car used for local shopping errands. The remainder of the corral includes rides usually more associated with celebrities like Ferraris, Lambos, Porsches and Audis. Interestingly enough, the only Merc is a customized Sprinter van for his bigger shopping errands.

    There is a Portland Brewery Bike Tour which I'd imagine is quite popular, especially the part of the tour which includes sampling the different beers.
