Though… if you want to learn a little bit about the history of Gasparilla, keep reading!

History of Gasparilla

Gasparilla boats in Tampa bay The history and name of this Tampa tradition traces back to the legendary antics of Jose Gaspar. Gaspar reportedly patrolled the waters of West Florida during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. A society columnist with the Tampa Tribune is credited with creating a May festival in 1904 that first incorporated a pirate-inspired theme. The original members of Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla stormed Tampa on horseback before becoming seaworthy in 1911. The success of those early invasions prompted planners to move the celebration to its winter time slot and encouraged the creation of additional events.


Peace Symbol Car Magnets!

peacejpgHurray!  We have a new president!  Awesome!!!!  And… maybe there is some hope for Peace.  Wouldn’t that be great!?!?!  I, for one, am hoping that Peace is in the air!

I’m also hoping that other people think so too and want to put Peace Symbol magnets on their cars.  Look no further than Fun Car Tattoos for some really cute peace symbol car magnets.  A set of  3 peace symbol car magnets sells for just $8!  What a bargain.

Do you know the history of the Peace Symbol?  If not, read on!

The now universal symbol for peace is actually a symbolic representation of the semaphore flag alphabet. It is a combination of two different letters “N” and “D.” The original group to use the symbol as their logo was the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). The BBC adds that the circle around the symbol is a representation of the world. The peace sign made its way into the psychedelic United States of the sixties and the rest is history. Unfortunately, the world is still armed.

Forgot what your car looks like? Get a Fun Car Tattoo car magnet!

How many times have you forgotten what your car looks like?

I found this on the internet so heaven only knows if this is true but it’s a very good reason to put a Fun Car Tattoo on your car!

“An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, ‘I HAVE A GUN, AND I KNOW HOW TO USE IT! GET OUT OF THE CAR!’

The four men didn’t wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad.

The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver’s seat.

She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then she realized why, … it was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12 packs of beer in the front seat.

A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake.

The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn’t stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a carjacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.”

Too bad she didn’t have a Fun Car Tattoo on her car. Fun Car Tattoos are easy on, easy off, UV resistant magnets that don’t leave a sticky residue like bumper stickers do.

This whole situation could have been avoided if she had just had an hibiscus, peace sign or cat paw magnet on her car!
