I posted a threewheeled DS parked in front of the "Le Chanteclair" in New York a a few weeks ago. Some of you claimed that the picture was photoshopped, because the suspension arm wasn’t visible. But believe me, it was real. Citroën USA modified a few cars as a part of a publicity stunt in the early 60s. They removed the whole suspension arm and placed the tail pipe of the exhaust in the middle. Here’s a picture of a Citroën dealer from Florida, who’s demonstrating the self leveling of the hydropneumatic suspension and the unusual weight distribution of the car.

Universally known for her cosmic presence while on stage, and the conscientious work she has continuously put forth as an actress, dancer, author and singer — Eartha Kitt is a force to be reckoned with. However, her accomplishments in the artistry world hold equal ties with her activism. Not only did Eartha encourage female empowerment and sex-positivity, she was also very adamant in deploring racial discrimination and protesting against the Vietnam War.
After speaking out against Lady Bird and President Lyndon B. Johnson during a televised luncheon at the White House, Kitt was rendered unemployable for the defamatory and false information about her being published by the CIA. Eartha Kitt stated that she never regretted taking a stand for what she believed in, but acknowledged that “if you tell the truth -in a country that says you’re entitled to tell the truth- you get your face slapped and put out of work.” Years later, Kitt made a triumphant return to America once the CIA’s ploys had been revealed, and starred in the hit Broadway musical ‘Timbuktu’. In the wake of witnessing Eartha Kitt’s monumental entrance to the stage, critic Lon Tuck wrote, "she is standing, literally, on the palms of a giant in loincloth, his forearms horizontal at elbow level. The bearer stops at center stage, which is crowded with exotic figures in similar economy of dress, and lowers Kitt to the floor. She pauses with an expression appropriate to Princess Sahleem-la-Lume, the power behind the throne of Timbuktu in the year 1361.
When all eyes are finally on her, she declares in that unmistakable huskiness: 'I am here.’”
Marsha P. Johnson was a major activist in the LGBTQ community. By throwing one of the first bricks at Stonewall, Marsha became a symbol for the LGBTQ movement and was a prominent activist. Today is the fourth day of pride month and the 28th day of this month will mark 51 years since the Stonewall riots and I feel as if many people are not aware of Marsha and the impact she had on the fight for gay rights. A transgender black woman was the face of one of the biggest movements America has seen, and I feel like many of us need to remember that.

Please read until the end before you judge! What is humanity? I’m using this post to ask cause i saw and read so much hate the last 48 hours, here and on tv - so many unnecessary, hateful, conflict searching comments on other profiles (and made the same experience on one of my posts as well) and even a colorful picture that seems like „happy world“ - but it isn’t. Isn’t it enough that there are inhuman things happens out there? Haven’t we learned that hate in any form is needless, no matter if real world or virtual one? Isn’t it now (like so often in the past) the time to share hope, love, unity and simply our best? What does the human needs to act human? Is it that much that it seams so hard to give?

Debbie Reynolds and her daughter Carrie Fisher (1959)
Debbie Reynolds passed away on 28th December 2016 after suffering a stroke, just one day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, died of sudden cardiac arrest. "She said she missed her daughter and wanted to see her again.I don't think she meant it quite like that, but in 30 minutes she went to go see her again.She literally spent her life caring after Carrie, I don't think she hardly knows what to do without having Carrie to look after. I think she wanted to be with her. I'm not joking when I say she left to be with her, and I'm happy about that. That's the only thing I'm happy about." said her son Todd Fisher. Debbie Reynolds said in 2015: "My three husbands all left me for another woman, and obviously I wasn't very sexual lady. My husbands all repeatedly said the same thing - that I was not very passionate woman.. it seemed like I was more interested in raising my childre not pursuing my husbands."
