You have probably seen photographs of cars driving right through the giant sequoia trees at Yosemite Park before. The worldwide web is full of them and that’s not so strange. We think we’d stop to make a photograph of our own four-wheeler going right through a tree like this if we came across one. Especially when you are driving a shiny red Porsche 356 together with your lovely girlfriend! This shot was taken in 1960 at the famous Wawona Tunnel Tree by an unknown man, probably the car’s owner and fiancée to today’s Friday Lady.
But the reason why we came up with this particular photograph, is a lot grimmer. And when you know about Yosemite National Park, or travelled it yourself, you may well know its campfire stories, too. Bigfoot, yes, but some of them even scarier. And it was on this day in 1999 that a very gruesome story became reality after three girls were found murdered there. The disappearance of two of them had drawn national attention. When another 26 year-old Yosemite Park worker was found brutally killed and decapitated near her cabin in the park, the investigations lead to Cary Stayner, who confessed to have murdered all three of them and was sentenced to death. You just be careful out there.

If you like your cars to be British, you are likely to enjoy a breakfast with bacon, beans and black pudding every now and then. Chances are high you will also like tweed jackets and fair isle sweaters, prefer Churchill over Roosevelt, drink tea at just about any occasion and say sorry when you haven’t done anything wrong. If that’s so, friends, you are the person to visit ‘British Cars & Lifestyle’, held this weekend for the 26th time in a row in Rosmalen, The Netherlands. As the organizers say: “Not just the biggest, but also the cosiest event for the fan of British cars, Great Britain itself plus its country lifestyle.” (all info here).
So what to expect? Cars. Oh yes. Plenty of them. But forget about these for a tiny little while. The show’s organizers say they will form the biggest shop selling British products for the weekend, with stands selling antiques, clothing, jewellery, pottery, fabric, boots, marmalade, fudge and much more. The photograph above was actually taken on the spot. A classic car show! To quote them once more: “Where ladies enjoy themselves between the life style products, the men browse the parts.” This year, the idea is stretched further with an Irish pub in situ, including a band playing British pop songs and even a town crier who will sing (!) along...
