Happy New Year! And a new use for Hwy 61

2009 has already struck in some parts of the world. In Minnesota they are still counting and re-counting votes. Al Franken is leading by 50 votes. We like our media celebrities in Minnesota--remember Jesse Ventura? California has a thing for celebrities too, apparently.

Update: The famous Highway 61--now a runway. An airplane made an emergency landing on the Highway 61 expressway. “The engine ate itself for breakfast. That doesn’t happen often.” said the vice president of business admin for Cirrus. The engine apparently threw a rod shortly after takeoff, causing the aircraft to lose power and need to make an emergency landing.

And if that wasn't odd enough, after the plane landed on the highway--the passing traffic started honking at them! Ha ha, wish I had been there to see (and hear) that!

Oh well. 2009 is going to be a super-duper, fantastic, fabulous, wonderful and GREAT year! Happy New Year to you!

I already dread 2009. 2010 looks hopeful. I'm hoping Aliens will land on the Earth.

Good grief...I bet seeing a plane land on the highway got a few people's nerves on edge. Imagine if you'd just had a big night on the booze and saw a plane taxi-ing towards you? ha ha.


Have a wonderful New Year PBS.

Have a Happy New Year, PBS.

I read a while back that highways were built so that every so many miles, there are so many miles of straigtaway just so planes can land. I found that an interesting piece of trivia.

Reminds me of the great Johnny Winters song. I hope no one was hurt.

happy New Year! It woulda been exciting to watch a plane land on the highway. And lots safer than watching it land on a house!

Did they get a parking ticket?

We don't have any celebrities to vote for.
They all move to the States.
All we have left are....politicians
AKA comedians

Happy New Year

Another reason for me to hate air travel.
