Where the Hell is Matt? Again

Yes!!!  Another Where the Hell is Matt? video surfaces on YouTube.  You've got to check it out.  I wrote about his dancing around the world in 2008, and this time around, it's just as good.  Dancing can melt the boundaries that separate people.  No matter your age, religion, gender, race, location, physical ability, education level, socio-economic status, or nationality--we all share a common humanity that these videos bring to the forefront.  Dance can be a way of communicating, or sharing experiences, of expressing emotions, and creating art.  Truly, we all do live on one world, and we are all more alike than different.

Vanity Plates

Wow, Blogger has new Dashboard format for composing and posting blogs...When did that happen?  Could be weeks (or months for all I know).  Pretty good sign I've been neglecting you dear blog for too long.  Oops.

Anyway, just wanted to share with you a photo from the other day.  When I saw this car's license plate in front of me while sitting in traffic I didn't notice a thing, but then I read the plate again out loud (ok, out loud in my head--I don't make it a point to talk to myself alone in the car), and it gave me pause.  H8 Rt 7.  Get it?  Get it.  Hahaha.  Made me smile and reach for my camera.  Best license plate I've ever seen on the road.  And if you've ever been on Virginia's Route 7 during rush hour, you'd totally understand. Whose brilliant idea was it to put so many red lights every 200 yards?

Sometimes, we all just have let the inner H8er out.  Anyone else ever see a memorable vanity license plate out and about?  What was the best?
