Expired

This lady had a great sense of humor.  She always used to say that when she died she wanted a parking meter on her grave that says 'Expired.'  So her nephew got her one on eBay!  Her grave is right by the road so everyone can see it.  Many people have stopped to get a chuckle.

Notice that she died on her birthday.
 Lord,
Give us a sense of humor. 
Give us the grace to see a joke, 
To get some humor out of life, 
And pass it on to other folk. 
The irony of life is that, by the time
you're old enough to know your way
around, you're not going anywhere.

Paul McCartney at Citi Field







http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2009/07/paul-mccartney/



The event: "Cute" Beatle Paul McCartney, still earning the title at age 67, performs Friday's opening concert at the new Citi Field, the first in a three-night run (continues July 18 and July 21).

• Location: New York City

• Attendance: 42,000-plus

• The venue: Citi Field, new home of the New York Mets, sits next to the now-demolished Shea Stadium, where McCartney, then 23, and his Beatle mates launched the stadium rock-concert era with an historic half-hour show on Aug. 15, 1965. At the time, the 55,000 attendance was the largest ever at a rock concert and the $304,000 gross was the top take in box-office history.

• Mania level: Tickets for the three shows, priced $49.50-$275, sold out within five minutes. Fans debated purchases of $30 programs, $35 T-shirts and $90 zip-up track-suit tops with McCartney logos.
