That's true. I had thought of Rosie before looking at the picture.

But, looking at the picture, I think this is someone else.

Wishful thinking Cap'n, but she may have been a lousy cook.
Sure was pretty though.

Animal testing is cruel. It makes them nervous and they get all the answers wrong.

Hey Foodman while checking out Veronica Lake, I was reading about her in Wikipedia, about halfway down the main page there is a line
"In Alfred Hitchcock's suspense film Shadow of a Doubt (1941), the young daughter named Ann says her prayers before going to sleep... "God bless Mama, Papa, Captain Midnight, Veronica Lake, and the President of the United States."
I wonder if that's how CaptainMidnight got his name?

V Lake

Boy was that a tragic ending..

She alwayshad a hair curl over 1 eye and the women all tried to copy it.. It was causing problems with the women working in the plants during the war.. The war effort asked her to do an ad where she was working in a war machinery plant andhad her cut the curl off.. She did and that was the beginning of the end for her career..

Back to riding after a 30 yr lay off.. Started with a 86 Magna 750 on to a 02 Shadow 1100,99 Magna 750,91 ST1100, finaly a 93 Wing.. and now an 06 1800 Loven Life...

Not that particular one...

Although Ihave my own Secret Squadron and we do fight the Forces of Evil, my moniker derives from the opposite end of that spectrum.
