David Uhl 70th Daytona Piece

In keeping up with tradition here is the release of David Uhl’s latest masterpiece, “Ready to Rally”.  This piece is the 7th in the Daytona Commemorative Series and features a beautiful lady biker, readying her ride for the next leg in front of Daytona Harley-Davidson on Beach Street.
In David’s words, “This being the anniversary year for the rally, I wanted to paint a subject that was very rally specific.  Looking over the last six years of my Daytona Commemorative pieces, I realized that there was not a “Bike Week ” depiction in the whole group. So I thought it appropriate this year to create  a work  that represented a sight  that would most certainly grab your attention while you were cruisin’ the streets.  This is my favorite model Elizabeth and she will be with us at Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach on the 11th and 12th to meet and greet all those who care to stop by and say hello”.
As with his previous Daytona pieces, David will make these prints available through the end of this year’s rally (March 13th).  Edition numbers will be assigned as orders are taken and shipping is included in the prices below within the lower 48 United States.
Hand-signed, numbered canvas giclee prints:
“Regular” – image size 20″ x 30″, $895 framed
“Large” – image size 28″ x 42″, $2,850 framed
David will be in his gallery at Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach (outside the front door of the dealership) from March 4-13.

10 year old domestic shorthair
Data is a very sweet and handsome cat who is looking for a loving owner and a new forever home to call his own. In his former home, the person that he trusted neglected him, but Data has put his past behind him and is looking eagerly to the future.

Data is very shy; in fact, the shelter environment is a little overwhelming for him. He has shown himself to be an attentive and mellow cat. He’s very talkative and hopes to find a home with a very patient and loving owner who will help him come out of his shell. We think that he would do well in a home with another cat as a furry companion.

If you think that you could provide the loving home that Data has been waiting for, please visit Animal Friends and ask to speak to an Adoptions Counselor. He can’t wait to meet you!

Can you show her how nice people are by giving her a forever home? Stop by Animal Friends today to meet her.

Toyota recalls 2.17 million more vehicles over sudden-acceleration problems

Another recall, if you have one of these models, call your dealer.
Toyota’s latest recall affects six models and is intended to deal with potential defects that could entrap the gas pedal. It comes in the wake of an investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The action, which incorporates three separate recalls and comes in addition to earlier recalls for similar issues, affects six models and addresses various potential defects that could entrap the gas pedal, leading to dangerous loss of control.
Since the autumn of 2009, the Japanese automaker has issued over 14 million recall notices to address a series of safety and quality issues. The majority have been for sudden-acceleration-related flaws, and Toyota has been subject to numerous federal investigations to explore the problem.
According to the NHTSA, the new recalls came about as a result of an investigation it launched last spring into the scope and breadth of Toyota’s original pedal-entrapment recall. In a statement Thursday, David Strickland, the NHTSA’s administrator, said the safety regulator had reviewed over 400,000 pages of Toyota documents.
Toyota said that nearly 1.4 million of the newly affected models were being added to its September 2009 recall for pedal entrapment. Those models are the 4Runner, Rav4 and Lexus LX.
But it also identified separate problems, related to the shape and functionality of interior panels and carpeting that could interfere with the accelerator pedal, in the Highlander, Lexus RX and Lexus GS. Those are new recalls.
