The iconic “Mudflap Girl”, long seen on America’s highways, finally has an identity. Ed Allen of Washington, D.C. says that it’s his mother. Allen’s father, a trucker, kept a photo of his wife wearing a swimsuit in his rig.
"Dad kept the photo in the cab of his truck, which always bore mom's name on the hood," said Allen.
When a new corporate owner forbade Stewart from decorating a company-owned vehicle, Stewart put his wife’s silhouette on his trailer’s mudflaps so his boss couldn’t see her when the truck was backed up to a loading dock.
In 1967, Ed Allen said that a local truck-accessories manufacturer named Bill Zinda saw the design. He liked it and, with Allen's permission, started selling it. No one ever trademarked the image, and Mudflap Girl got around a lot during the freewheeling ’70s.
Aah, the Royal Wedding. A grand occassion where joy was had by all. Well, almost all.
Grace van Cutsem, age 3, was the daughter of Lady Rose Astor and Hugh van Cutsem, a close friend of William and Harry. She was the cute flower girl that stole the show by tellin’ it like it was in this photo that went viral ’round the Web.

For those of us who owned the original 1989 Nintendo Game Boy nothing is more exciting and nostalgic then playing some of those green and yellow video game classics of our youth. GameBoyOnline.com claims to have over 800 games that you can play in the browser without downloading an emulator. I know what I’m doing at work today...rescuing that Princess once and for all!

I’m having trouble finding any information about this video. It appears to show a performer balancing sticks, one on top of another, without dropping a single one. At the very end, he must balance the entire assembly on one remaining, upright stick. Amazing to see!
