Awakenings: Kilroy Was Here!

Awakenings: Kilroy Was Here! | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

A funny little scribbled face became a graffiti icon! It has shown up everywhere worldwide, on buildings, on trains, in school books, with autographs, in diaries, on restroom walls, on sidewalks, in subway tunnels, on rocks, on dumpsters, on invitations, in letters, on tee-shirts, on campaign buttons, you name it and probably Kilroy has been there. It is even engraved on the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC. Of course, that is not as unusual as it sounds which will be discovered later on.

Sharla Shults's insight:
 "The outrageousness of the graffiti was not so much what it said, but where it turned up." ~Charles Paniti, author
Embrace the Past, Empower the Present, Enrich the Future of Kilroy!

Awakenings: The 1935 Stout Scarab

Awakenings: The 1935 Stout Scarab | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

Scarab? I thought that was a beetle...remember, like in The Mummy. Of course, when I was younger, a friend gave me a scarab bracelet but that was way after the year 1935 and this article is not about beetle bugs or special jewelry. It is about an automobile claimed by some to be the precursor to the mini-van: The 1935 Stout Scarab!

Sharla Shults's insight:

Amazing how the automobile actually looks like a scarab.

Why We Go to the Met Every Sunday (and Have for 60 Years)

Why We Go to the Met Every Sunday (and Have for 60 Years) | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

To constantly inspire breakthrough conceptual thinking, my wife and I go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, religiously, every Sunday. Lou Dorfsman, design chief for CBS Radio and later the CBS Television Network for over 40 years, once said, “In reality, creativity is the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.”

Sharla Shults's insight:

Going on a vacation? Plan on visiting a museum...walk in the footsteps of history!
