What is better than a limited #momo#jackiestewart steering wheel in immaculate condition with horn button included? Of course - two limited #momo#jackiestewart steering wheels in immaculate condition with horn buttons included 😁😁😁 The black one came in today straight from Japan, produced in March 1980 and it's brand new, spent all of its life hanging on a hook (which left a bit of a dent on top of the inner part of the rim). Such a beauty 😍 #whenracingwasracing#vintage#classicauto#pirulsentimental
JM Barrie's - "The Little White Bird". 🐦
Thank you Mr Barrie but truly this is a romanticized concept of birds, it may be that birds don't have a choice as to flying or not, birds are programmed so they do as they're told by their programming. Same goes to Angels or Demons, they do as their told. Humans are different, we are the programmers, we choose how to program our selves and we have the spirit of God in us from creation to tell the beasts what to do...So then how do we fly? Or better yet, how do we not 😉❓

I got old school!!! Wonder how I get some of my guests for the podcast? I wrote a letter to my Formula 1 idol, Jackie Stewart. Bloody legend!! His racing career has ONLY been challenged by Lewis Hamilton.
His wife suffers with dementia and they battle it together by starting up Race Against Dementia. Dementia affects so many people, I hope Jackie responds to my letter so we can all be educated further on dementia. .

Era o primeiro ano de Stewart na F1 que ainda fez três segundos lugares e um terceiro na temporada. Convém lembrar que seus adversários eram pilotos do calibre de Graham Hill (companheiro de equipe), Jochen Rindt, Jo Siffert, Jim Clark, Denny Hulme, John Surtees e Bruce McLaren.
