Once called to the desk, I begged the examiner to let me use my picture from 5 years ago,where I looked least like a deranged psycho but he wasn't having it. He told me when he turned 70 he wanted to use his photo from when he was 36, but his request was also declined. (lol) So in 2-3 weeks I can expect to be tortured again when I receive my brand new license in the mail. Ugh!
Those of us under 66 should all just move to Arizona. Drivers' licenses don't have to be renewed there for 12 years!
Whisk together 2 cups of champagne, 1 cup of fresh orange juice and 1/4 cup ginger or orange liqueur(like Triple Sec) in a pitcher. Pour the mixture into 2-3 standard ice cube trays, freezing until totally firm, preferably overnight. Transfer the frozen cubes to a blender, processing until smooth and frothy. Pour into 4 flutes or tall glasses, topping off with more champagne. Garnish with orange wedges. Yum!
Caroline Earle White and several other women helped to establish the first animal shelter in Philadelphia on April 14, 1869, and it was called The Women's Humane Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Now known as the Women's Animal Center (WAC), they are still saving the lives of abused and homeless pets by providing forever homes and affordable health care.

YIKES! Have you ever suspected that some of your fast food was missing when it arrived to your home?
According to US Foods who recently surveyed food service employees and about 1500 people who enjoy fast food delivery, 28% of the drivers got hungry and took or tasted the food before it arrived to their customer's home. Ironically, 21% of customers suspected this was actually going on, but couldn't prove it. Despite this tomfoolery, customers have on average 2 food apps on their phones and still order from restaurants about 3 times per month.
By the way, do you know that loud hunger rumble you hear from your tummy has a really strange name called borborygmi? It sounds weird, but it's gas moving around in the intestines.
Are you a fan of shoes? If you've got millions laying around the house, you can purchase 2 of the world's most expensive to grace your closet.
Tom Ford's all diamond men's shoe custom designed by Jason Arasheben took almost a year to finish and is worth $2 million. With 14,000 round diamonds totalling 340 carats, I would be afraid to even wear them outside.
