Pictures of my 66 Mustang y otras cositas
Here are some pics of my Mustang
1966 brought even fewer changes than did its predecessor. Most of the changes for 1966 were in the form of cosmetic refinements. A new grille which featured chrome edged, horizontal inserts, replaced the honeycomb grille of '65. The chrome bars that extended horizontally and vertically from the running horse were deleted on the '66 grille. A new three fingered rear quarter panel ornament was used. The lower rocker panel moulding became standard equipment, as did backup lights, and a chrome hood lip moulding. The fuel filler cap no longer included the plastic Mustang emblem insert found on the earlier models. On the inside the Mustang was treated to standard five gauge instrumentation, and "woven" vinyl seat inserts. The choices of available interior colors and styles increased to thirty four varieties, giving the buyer even more ways to personalize "their" Mustang. Production increased to 607,568 units for 1966.
On April 17, 1964, the world's first American affordable sports car was introduced by Ford Motor Company. To the public the Mustang was not only affordable, but also practical sportiness. For Ford it was many things: a catalyst of a great marketing strategy; a great sales success; and a personal triumph for Lee Iacocca and Henry Ford II.1

what is the origin of the famous 'playboy' rabbit head?
designed by art paul, the magazine's first art director, the rabbit head
has appeared on the cover of every issue of the magazine since the second.
hugh hefner, the creator of the 'playboy' magazine, once explained,
'I selected a rabbit as the symbol for the magazine
because of the humorous sexual connotation, and because he offered an
image that was frisky and playful. I put him in a tuxedo to add the idea of
sophistication. there was another editorial consideration, too.
since both 'the new yorker' and 'esquire' use men as their symbols,
I felt the rabbit would be distinctive; and the notion of a rabbit dressed up
in formal evening attire struck me as charming, amusing and right.'
added art paul, 'if I had any idea how important that little rabbit was going to be,
I probably would have redrawn him a dozen times to make certain
I was doing him justice, and I suppose none of those versions would have
turned out as well as the original. as it was, I did one drawing and that was it.
I probably spent all of half an hour on it.'

Your bones are growing right along with you. And you need calcium now more than ever. Your "growth spurt" is just about to happen -- it typically starts around 11-13 years of age, and the "spurt" is usually done by the time you're 15-19 years old. Nearly 50 percent (that's HALF) of all bone is formed during these years! But even after your bones have stopped growing long, they are still growing strong "inside." That's why you need to pack your bones with calcium for at least another 10 years to help make them as dense and strong as possible.

1968 - Mexico City, Mexico
Only ten days before the 1968 Olympic Games were to open, the Mexican army surrounded a group of students who were protesting against the Mexican government at the Plaza of Three Cultures and opened fire into the crowd. It is estimated that 267 were killed and over 1,000 were wounded.
During the Olympic Games, political statements were also made. Tommie Smith and John Carlos (both from the U.S.) won the gold and bronze medals, respectively, in the 200-meter race. When they stood (barefoot) upon the victory platform, during the playing of the "Star Spangled Banner," they each raised one hand, covered by a black glove, in a Black Power salute (picture). Their gesture was meant to bring attention to the conditions of blacks in the United States. This act, since it went against the ideals of the Olympic Games, caused the two athletes to be expelled from the Games. The IOC stated, "The basic principle of the Olympic Games is that politics plays no part whatsoever in them. U.S. athletes violated this universally accepted principle . . . to advertise domestic political views."*

Although he is regarded as one of the most brilliant mathematical physicists of the century, Einstein thought of himself as much as a philosopher as a scientist. Certainly his theories relating matter, energy, space, time and gravity have guided much of the work in theoretical physics since 1905. His famous "thought experiments," based on intuition and imagination rather than laboratory work, propelled us beyond the mechanistic, unchanging "clockwork universe" of Newton and the other classical physicists into a relativistic universe. Here clocks run slower or faster depending on the speed of travel or location in the universe, and "true" distances are stretched or shrunk by gravity.

'It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees.'
— Emiliano Zapata
'The immense majority of Mexican pueblos and citizens are owners of no more than the land they walk on, suffering the horrors of poverty without being able to improve their social condition in any way or to dedicate themselves to industry or agriculture, because lands, timber, and water are monopolized in a few hands.'
His slogan was "Tierra y Libertad." Zapata sided with Madero.
Between 1910 and 1919, Zapata continued his fight for land and liberty, rebelling against anyone who interfered with his Plan of Ayala which called for the seizure of all foreign owned land, all land taken from villages, confiscation of one-third of all land held by "friendly" hacendados and full confiscation of land owned by persons opposed to the Plan of Ayala.
On April 10, 1919, Zapata was tricked into a meeting with one of Carranza's generals who wanted to "switch sides." The meeting was a trap, and Zapata was killed as he arrived at the meeting.
Born June 5, 1877, '78 or '79 in Grande, or San Juan del Río, Durango as Doroteo Arango (there conflicting sources as to where and when he was born). Became a fugitive when he killed an hacendado for attacking his sister. Joined the Madero revolution in 1910. Returned to civilian life and operated a butcher shop after Madero's revolt was successful.
When Orozco rebelled against Madero, Villa returned to the field of battle. In 1916, he raided Columbus, New Mexico. Villa continued to fight until 1920 when he surrendered his troops to Adolfo de la Huerta. Retired to Hacienda Canutillo until 1923. He was ambushed and killed on July 23, 1923 in Parral.
