I haven’t seen all the movies in the world…But I don’t think I would vote the Mini Cooper as on of the coolest…maybe one of the cutest!

PLEASE just give me the cars/motorcycles in Jay Leno’s garages!

Face it Baby Boomers…there are a lot of cooler cars in movies…but these are designed to sell you, THE BABY BOOMERS…cars that are out there for you to pick off the lots.

Just another way to sell the MAIN STREAM, the Americam public automobiles! Buyer beware.

BUY FUEL EFFICIENT CARS OR YOU WILL BE PAYING FOR IT AT THE PUMPS!

Green Peace Out…

From DRIGGS, Idaho, Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on “Gilligan’s Island,” is serving six months’ unsupervised probation after allegedly being caught with marijuana in her car.

2327053275_2009bfa088_m.jpg

She was sentenced Feb. 29 to five days in jail, fined $410.50 and placed on probation after pleading guilty to one count of reckless driving.
Under a plea agreement, three misdemeanor counts, driving under the influence, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance, were dropped.

On Oct. 18, Teton County sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Gutierrez arrested Wells as she was driving home from a surprise birthday party that was held for her. According to the sheriff’s office report, Gutierrez pulled Wells over after noticing her swerve and repeatedly speed up and slow down. When Gutierrez asked about a marijuana smell, Wells said she’d just given a ride to three hitchhikers and had dropped them off when they began smoking something. Gutierrez found half-smoked joints and two small cases used to store marijuana.

The 69 year old Wells, founder of the Idaho Film and Television Institute and organizer of the region’s annual family movie festival called the Spud Fest, then failed a sobriety test.

Wells’ lawyer, Ron Swafford, said that a friend of Wells’ testified that he’d left a small amount of marijuana in the vehicle after using it that day, and that Wells was unaware of it. Swafford also said several witnesses were prepared to testify that Wells had very little to drink at the party and was not intoxicated when she left. He said she was swerving on the road because she was trying to find the heater controls in her new car.

Poor Mary Ann…busted…first Guiligan now Mary Ann busted for pot.

Hey, baby Boomers, I believe her! How about you???

I still think she looks great…and it does explain some of those looks that she did on “Guiligans Island.”

NOW, my question is how did they come up with 410 dollars and 10 cents for a fine…FAR OUT…NOW, that is too strange!

LOS ANGELES, California, Kiefer Sutherland has been released from jail after serving 48 days on a drunken driving charge, according to a police official.

Kiefer Sutherland served time for a drunken driving charge.

Two police spokesmen did not return phone calls seeking confirmation of a story on People magazine’s Web site saying the 41 year old actor walked out of jail at 12:05 a.m. Monday, hours earlier than had been expected.

But a police official who spoke on condition of anonymity and wasn’t authorized to speak publicly confirmed that Sutherland had been released.

People quoted police Officer John Balian as saying, “(Kiefer) looked like he was glad to be out,” and that Sutherland was wearing a shirt and jeans when he left the facility.

Sutherland, the star of Fox television’s drama, “24,” has spent his sentence cleaning sheets, pillowcases and blankets on laundry duty, Balian told The Associated Press on Friday.

“He was very humble, never complained,” Balian said. “He didn’t give us any problems at all.”

Sutherland pleaded no contest in October to driving with a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit of 0.08 percent. He was sentenced to 30 days, as well as 18 days for violating probation stemming from a 2004 drunken driving arrest.

After entering his plea last fall, Sutherland issued a statement saying he was “very disappointed in myself for the poor judgment I exhibited recently, and I’m deeply sorry for the disappointment and distress this has caused my family, friends and co~workers.”

He was granted a request to serve his time in suburban Glendale’s city jail rather than in the overcrowded downtown Los Angeles County jail. The trade off was that he could not shave any time off his sentence for good behavior or early release because of overcrowding.

The actor must also serve five years probation and complete an 18 month alcohol education program and attend weekly therapy sessions for six months.
