HAPPY BIRTHDAY…Veronica Lake!

Wishing Some Favorite People, Past & Present

Happy Birthday!

November 14th, 2013

 

—– Veronica Lake (1922-1973) —–

This gorgeous Hollywood actress was known for her sassy attitude and her lovely golden locks. While she was a very petite 4′ 11″, she had huge star power. We of course love her beauty, mystery, acting career, glamour & style.

Happy Birthday beautiful & thanks for the memories.

Un-Blast from the Past – Sealed Bomb Shelters Found

As children, many of us dreamed of finding long lost treasure, hidden paths & secret rooms. A look into something from the past, frozen in time, giving us a special glimpse into another time. Over the years, it seems that is exactly what has happened for a lucky few, who discovered retro bomb shelters in their own back yard. Some are in less than glorious shape, while others look as if they were put together just yesterday.
