Did anyone happen to record the car numbers of the former UP car placed at their Sunset Strip location in 1975, and the other former UP car placed at their Studio City location in 1981.
The Sunset Strip car would be a UP 500 class because it is a former UP streamlined heavyweight.
There are two cars at the Studio City location. One of them is former UP 620x, a Lounge car, likely UP 6205, Mojave River.
During an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere Delle Sera on the occasion of her 80th birthday, she was asked if she was lonely. She said yes, a bit. “But I have no regrets,” she added. “I have loved, cried, been mad with happiness. I have won and I have lost.”

Xmas is a common abbreviation of the word Christmas. It is sometimes pronounced //, but Xmas and variants such as Xtemass, originated as handwriting abbreviations for the typical pronunciation //. The “-mas” part is from the Latin-derived Old English word for Mass, while the “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word Χριστός which comes into English as “Christ“.
There is a common belief that the word Xmas stems from a secular attempt to remove the religious tradition from Christmas by taking the “Christ” out of “Christmas”, but its use dates back to the 16th century.
“we knocked the bastard off”
by hillary top of world
The mountaineers were accompanied by James Morris, the correspondent of The Times newspaper of London, and by 362 porters, so that the expedition in the end amounted to over four hundred men, including twenty Sherpa guides from Tibet and Nepal, with a total weight of ten thousand pounds of baggage. Morris later changed sex and became Jan Morris
I continued on, cutting steadily and surmounting bump after bump and cornice after cornice looking eagerly for the summit. It seemed impossible to pick it and time was running out. Finally I cut around the back of an extra large lump and then on a tight rope from Tenzing I climbed up a gentle snow ridge to its top. Immediately it was obvious that we had reached our objective. It was 11.30 a.m. and we were on top of Everest!
The 1953 British Mount Everest expedition was the ninth British mountaineering expedition to attempt the first ascent of Mount Everest, and the first confirmed to succeed. Led by Colonel John Hunt, it was organized and financed by the Joint Himalayan Committee. News of the expedition’s success on 29 May 1953 reached London in time to be released on the morning of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, 2 June.

Field of Dreams (1989)

“That’s My Wish”
Dr. Archibald “Moonlight” Graham’s (Burt Lancaster in his last theatrical film role) poignant wish to fulfill his dream: a chance to bat in the major leagues:
Graham: It was like coming this close to your dreams and then watch them brush past you like a stranger in a crowd. At the time, you don’t think much of it. You know, we just don’t recognize the most significant moments of our lives while they’re happening. Back then I thought, ‘Well, there’ll be other days.’ I didn’t realize that that was the only day. And now, Ray Kinsella, I want to ask you a question. What’s so interesting about a half an inning that would make you come all the way from Iowa to talk to me about it 50 years after it happened?
Ray: I really didn’t know till just now, but I think it’s to ask you if you could do anything you wanted, if you could have a-a wish.
Graham: And that you’re the kind of a man who could grant me that wish?
Ray: I don’t know. I’m just asking.
Graham: Well, you know, I-I never got to bat in the major leagues. I’d have liked to have had that chance just once, to stare down a big-league pitcher. To stare him down, then just as he goes into his windup, wink. Make him think you know something he doesn’t. That’s what I wish for. The chance to squint at a sky so blue that it hurts your eyes just to look at it. To feel the tingle in your arm as you connect with the ball. To run the bases, stretch a double into a triple, and flop face-first into third, wrap your arms around the bag. That’s my wish, Ray Kinsella. That’s my wish. And is there enough magic out there in the moonlight to make this dream come true?
Ray: What would you say if I said yes?
Graham: I think I’d actually believe you.
Ray: Well, sir, there’s a place where things like that happen, and if you want to go, I can take you.
Graham: This is my most special place in all the world, Ray. Once a place touches you like this, the wind never blows so cold again. You feel for it, like it was your child. I can’t leave Chisholm.
