Most seat belt legislation in the United States is left to the states. However, the first seat belt law was a federal law which took effect on January 1, 1968 that required all vehicles (except buses) to be fitted with seat belts in all designated seating positions. This law has since been modified to require three-point seat belts in outboard seating positions, and finally three-point seat belts in all seating positions. Initially, seat belt use was not compulsory. New York was the first state to pass a law which required vehicle occupants to wear seat belts, a law that came into effect on December 1, 1984.
Interesting Tally..

Morning El. Went up to "the Garden" yesterday. The colors were beautiful and I never realized there was more than one variety of tulip. Bonsais are one of my favorite.
Always something new. I love the lakes and water gardens there too. They natural beauty is such that I think no photographer could truly capture it. I'm sure there must be areas in Wales and Ireland filled with just as much natural beauty.
Hi Quincy...a nice way to spend a day...and I love Tulips,
always promised myself a trip to Amsterdam in the Spring.
You never can quite capture the beauty on film somehow
can you, but nice as a reminder of the occasion.
You have inspired me to make a move and visit our favourite
gardens here which are Bodnant, the Laburnam Archway should
be in full bloom now, so Monday it is, weather permitting.

oh sorry...I hadn't read it properly....

I thought you was speaking generally.

I made the comment with a recent incident in mind.
Some years ago a fellow shot and killed, and wounded another
who were burglaring his farmhouse. He was given a lengthy
jail sentence but served three years only of it.
A few weeks ago he was again burgaled. He did nothing to
defend his property, saying he was too afraid of being imprisoned
again, he is elderly and could not go through with it again.

Which is why I made my comment.

The current photo of the archway in Bodnant looks looks lovely. Does The Lord still love there?

Just outside Chicago is Cantigny Gardens. Robert McCormick who owned the Chicago Tribune newspaper at one time fought in WWI. He named the property after the French city he fought in.

Unlike the house at Bodnant, McCormick's house is now one of at least two houses on the property and is open to the public. The gardens rival those at the Botanic but of course Cantigny is on a far smaller scale.

Can you imagine the outrage if English Nationalists had done that to Alex Salmond you wouldn't hear the end of it on the BBC.To be honest El I'm fed up with the lot of it,I use to love our United Kingdom but this just makes me feel I want independence away from Scotland and lets see how these cretins survive then with out the money they get more per head than an English person.
Funny really when you read and watch these brain dead trolls going on about What has an English politician got to do with Scotland considering the House of Commons was full of jocks at one point and especially when two were Prime minsters,talk about hypocrites,makes me want to vomit,also I might add we don't have an English voice unlike the Welsh,Scots,and Northern Ireland having their own parliaments,and all you hear is how hard done by they are...
This should be awake up call to Scots because it just shows there's no freedom of speech with these socialist bigots in the SNP and they're full of racists..

I honestly could not have put it better myself Krypt. There are
still Scots...and Welsh people in Westminster government, WHY?
There isn't an English representative in the Scottish parliament
or in the Welsh Assembly as far as I am aware. VERY one sided.
And credit to Nigel Farage....he speaks his mind and he speaks the truth, and that is rare in a politician.
It was absolutely disgusting that he should have been treated in
that manner....only one saving grace and that is most people all over Scotland were also disgusted at how he was treated, according to Twitter comments I read in this morning's paper.

I'll check it out, not sure which archway is depicted...meanwhile
I checked out Cantigny.....interesting to learn why it was named so..really lovely place..could happily spend some time there finishing the afternoon with Strawberry Chicken Salad at Le Jardin!
The menu sounded divine, I would be spoilt for choice.

It was called the laburnum arch and the pic was presumably taken last year may 29 -- the hanging greenery is beautiful.

Thanks for that, it really is a nice place, in a nice location.
The grounds are immense and there is only one 'Ladies'...seems a funny thing to pick upon, so you tend to go before and hope you'll make it round. LOL! Apparently the titled lady who owns the place, and resides en situ, doesn't care to have toilets anywhere within the grounds. Small price to pay I expect.
I love seeing that Laburnam Arch and hoping that this rain is going to clear up, it's famous for it's beautiful Rhodies too.
