I remember seeing a newspaper headline during a London heat wave years ago:
"70 degrees again today, no relief in sight!"

Any more on that pic, Bruce?

I tried a Google image search but without luck.

I assume that's an asphalt or bitumen type material used on the treads.

Buying Model-T roadster in 1926, the war tax, spare, and custom paint added about 18% to the $400 price.

I like that. We should have war taxes every time there is a war. Let everyone really feel it.

On the other hand, if you're paying the tax in peacetime, you might more easily decide to spend it on doin' war when an enemy comes around. You're paying for it anyway

We spent $27 Billion, basically took over finance of the good guys when GB ran out of money in 1916. They tried to recoup that during the roaring '20s.
