FUN WITH LICENSE PLATES….Jim Capozzola of the Rittenhouse Review, proving that he has too much time on his hands, points me toward this nifty little website that says:

Pretend you’re in prison and make a license!

You can make license plates from all 50 states plus Washington DC and the various Canadian provinces, and you can make a current plate or pick a classic model. For California, you have a choice of 1915, 1939, 1945, 1956, 1963, 1969, 1984, 1987, 1993, and 1998.

As Jim says, insomnia can do weird things to people. Indeed it can, and insomnia is one malady for which the internet seems tailor made.
