The artist James R. Ford glued 4,000 toy cars to a standard Ford Capri and turned it into “The General Lee” vehicle from The Dukes of Hazzard. The end result looks like the Ford has been hand-weaved.

Notes about the making of this project by James R. Ford:

Transforming a second-hand Ford Capri into the General Lee, from the Dukes of Hazzard, by covering it in little toy cars. Over four thousand toy cars were needed and so, in addition to searching out and purchasing appropriate toy cars himself, an appeal was started for people all over the world to send the artist their disused toy cars. The donator could write a little message on the toy car, or mark it in some other way, so they actually became part of the art whilst contributing to the sculpture.

A facelift is a great way to help you to look years younger, but many people still have plenty of questions about how it works and what it can do. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about facelifts.

Can a facelift really make me look 20 years younger? This type of cosmetic surgery will certainly make you look younger. During the procedure, a cosmetic surgeon will smooth out the skin and pull up the muscles, giving you a much more youthful appearance. Most people, however, do not look 20 years younger after having the surgery. A more realistic expectation is for patients to look 5 to 10 years younger following the procedure.

Won’t my face look “frozen”? Many are scared to have this procedure because they have heard about how it can make you look frozen. This is something that can happen if you have a cosmetic surgeon who is inexperienced. In order to avoid this, make sure that you select a surgeon who is practiced in facelift and facial cosmetic surgery. A good cosmetic surgeon will not leave your face looking frozen.

How expensive is a facelift? The price ranges from one office to another. This surgery is one of the most sought-after procedures, aside from breast augmentation, and can range anywhere from $6,000 to over $20,000.

Will it be one procedure or many? Most facelifts require only one procedure. The cosmetic surgery takes a few hours and during that time, the surgeon tightens your face and smoothes out any wrinkles that you may have, allowing you to have much younger looking features.

Does a facelift last for forever? You will continue to age. However, if you’ve had a facelift, your face has a bit of a jumpstart, which means that you’ll still look younger than you are even if you never have another procedure again.

How long will recovery from a facelift be? This depends on how fast of a healer you are, but the average person heals very quickly. In just a few weeks you’ll find that you’re back to doing your normal activities and that all of the bruises will be healed. If there are any problems, or if you’re concerned, it is always a good idea to speak with your cosmetic surgeon to have your questions answered, both before and after surgery.

No-frills airline Ryanair is again at the centre of controversy – this time it’s the lack of clothing its flight attendants are wearing in a calendar shoot that is making headlines.

The Irish airliner’s annual calendar features its own flight attendants wearing little more than a black bikini.

Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary has hit back at criticism of the airline’s raunchy cabin crew calendar by sending it to ‘anti-fun’ MEP Mary Honeyball, who last year accused the airline of forcing cabin crew to take part. The 2010 calendar aims to raise more than £100,000 for the UK charity KIDS, which provides support to disabled children.

Ryanair’s cabin crew volunteer to take part in the calendar and this year alone attracted more than 800 of the airline’s 4,000 staff applied to feature in the calendar…all for charity of course.

Proceeds of the 2010 calendar will bring the total raised by Ryanair’s stripped-down cabin crew to almost £300,000 since the first calendar was published in 2008. The 2010 edition was shot at Ryanair’s Alicante base in September. The 11,000 calendars will be sold on flights for £10. Ryanair spokesman Stephen McNamara said, “Ryanair’s cabin crew stunners once again strip off for charity. This year’s calendar is the hottest yet and we hope to raise £100,000 to help KIDS assist even more disabled children and their families in the UK.” Kevin Williams, CEO of KIDS, added, “We are delighted that Ryanair has this year chosen to support the much valued, practical support that KIDS provides for disabled children and their families across the UK. Our thanks go to all the Cabin Crew who took part – it’s great when a bit of fun can serve such a serious purpose.” Ryanair seems to always be in trouble. Just recently it was forced to pull a promotion featuring Queen Sofia of Spain after receiving a threat of legal action.

The airline had launched a promotion across Spanish media after it emerged that Queen Sofia had flown on Ryanair.

Days after Queen Sofia’s £13 flight to London to visit her sick brother, Ryanair launched the brash ad campaign, in which Queen Sofia appeared over the slogan “Fly like a monarch”.

The half-page advert included a quote from a popular freesheet, “Queen Sofia flies low cost”, while copy accompanying the image read, “It is a privilege for us that Queen Sofia flies with the airline with the highest growth in Spain.”

Ryanair also pledged €5,000 (£4,400) to a charity of the Queen’s choice as a gesture of gratitude.
