It is a sad day at Apple, Inc and offices across the world.

We were deeply saddened to read the news about Steve Job’s death on Google. The Apple CEO and co-founder, Steve Jobs, died of pancreatic cancer today at just 56 years old and just a few days before the release of the new iPhone 4S. Steve Jobs’s death was announced by Apple, his wife and Tim Cook:
“Team, I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today. Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple. We are planning a celebration of Steve’s extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email rememberingsteve@apple.com. No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much. Tim”
Steve Jobs is up there with all of the “greats” visionaries, Bill Gates (Microsoft), Larry Page (Google), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), the world will morn his loss for years to come. President Obama had it right when he stated that “The world has lost a visionary” and “there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.” There are decades of technological inventions with Jobs stamp of approval, we hope that Apple, Inc. will continue on just as strong in his name.

The King’s Limousine Up For Auction? Elvis Presley’s Cadillac Limo is estimated at $100,000 – 150,000 USD and comes w/ original documentation, signed manual & tools.

Here’s some really cool limo news … Bonhams is auctioning Elvis Presley’s 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood limousine on November 12, 2011. This is the very Cadillac that “the King” used to drive his band around in throughout Southern USA when he was starting out. Rumor is the band traveled by “strapping their instruments to the roof of the car!” Elvis Presley’s Cadillac Fleetwood limousine is owned by a Texan collector which has the January 1955 documentation to show that Elvis needed his father to co-signed for the car (we all have to start somewhere). Bet they didn’t know it would increase in value so much!

Lot No: 332 Formerly the property of Elvis Presley 1955
Cadillac Fleetwood 75 Limousine Chassis no. 557547481

Want To Know How To Create Your Own Royal Wedding? Ideas & Tips For Planning The Perfect Pittsburgh Wedding

Now that the Royal Wedding excitement has come to an end, it is time to concentrate on bigger and better things like … YOUR WEDDING BELLS! Aren’t you glad that you planned your special occasion for a different date? There is nothing worse than planning a wedding for a day where there will be other distractions. Kate and Prince William’s wedding day (April 29, 2011) would have been one of those “distracting” days for sure. So, how do you avoid those types of mistakes and plan the perfect wedding in Pittsburgh, PA? The following are some helpful wedding ideas, DOs and DON’TS and planning tips:

HOW TO GET MARRIED IN PITTSBURGH

Both your fiancee and you will need to go to The Marriage License Bureau and complete an Application for Marriage License between the hours of 8:30 A.M. – 4:30 P.M (Monday – Friday). This is located on the 1st floor of the City County Building at 414 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, PA. It costs $75 for the marriage license Allegheny County suggests that you “obtain a Marriage License 2 to 3 weeks before the scheduled date of their marriage ceremony”, but it typically takes 3 days from application to receive your marrige license and it is good for 60 days.

WEDDING DOs & DO NOTs

If you have a child / children, DO make your child / children the 1st you tell about your plan to get married. Address any concerns and plan to involve your child / children as much as possible. This will help your child / children accept and transition comfortably as it is not always easy for children to accept that another person shares your love.
DO tell your parents first, and then announce your engagement to family and friends at one time. You can send wedding announcements, launch a wedding website, post an announcement in the Celebrations section of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette or host a dinner party. This serves a vital purpose in setting your wedding date, therefore you want to announce and start discussing with everyone to insure that they are available or can make adjustment to attend on the day you want to get married.
DO start planning A.S.A.P. ~ set the wedding date, plan your budget and get ready to organize every single detail of your special day ~ Disorganized weddings are embarrassing, therefore you will want to rely on family and friends for help or hire a professional wedding planner. The goal is to create an occasion that is positively memorable for all.
DO NOT move forward blindly. You need to follow your budget starting with obtaining the marriage license all the way to honeymoon plans and when thank you cards should go out to your guests. There is a lot in between the two, therefore DO use a Wedding Planner w/ Worksheets to help keep your budget in perspective. It might change a few times as you are doing the initial research and cost analysis. Once you have set a budget for each detail, DO stick with the amounts that you are allocating to each detail.
DO NOT plan your wedding around major Holidays (including St Patrick’s Day, New Years Eve / Day and dates for different religious practices). Additionally, DO NOT plan to your wedding on Super Bowl Day, Final Four, The World Cup, The Olympics, The World Series or other major sports events. Friday the 13th, April Fools Day, Homecoming Dance / Prom Season and around local Pittsburgh events are dates that you should forget about hosting your wedding, too. Even more importantly, NEVER plan your wedding date for the same day as other friends, work associates and family members. Make venue or other adjustments if necessary, but DO NOT schedule conflicting wedding days for any of these reasons.
DO plan to wear comfortable shoes (have them custom made if need be) during rehearsal and on your wedding day. This is supposed to be one of the best days in your life, therefore it makes no sense to torture yourself by wearing uncomfortable shoes (no matter how cute or beautiful they are on your feet). Planning your wedding can become an overwhelming and time consuming project. Make sure to take good care of yourself by eating healthy and getting plenty of rest (during the planning process and up to your wedding day).
Please! Please! Please! DO NOT torture your brides maids by making them wear ugly dresses. Although it is hard to please the masses, there is nothing wrong with asking their opinion and taking a vote on the final dress options.

DO NOT wait until the last minute to select and reserve your wedding transportation. Our Pittsburgh Limousine company is always available to answer your question, give you a tour of our FLEET, online limo quotes and help you by phone @ 412-606-9549.

4th Of July Celebration, Memories & Pittsburgh Summer Fun

When we think of Independence Day in Pittsburgh, the infamous Point State Park (“The Point”) comes to mind. Residents of Pittsburgh can watch the City of Pittsburgh fireworks directly at Point State Park or from Mount Washington (South Side), North Shore (North Side) and the West End Overlook. It has always been the central location for all of our Pittsburgh summer and 4th of July celebration memories.

History of Point State Park

“Point State Park, located at the confluence of three rivers, is at the tip of Pittsburgh’s “Golden Triangle.” It commemorates and preserves the strategic and historic heritage of the area during the French and Indian War (1754 – 1763). Once a busy industrial area, the area had deteriorated into a commercial slum by the 1940s. The development of a state park was authorized in 1945 and the first parcel of the 36-acre property was purchased in 1946. The park was completed and dedicated in 1974. It is now one of the nation’s outstanding historical parks and tourist attractions and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark.” (http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/point.aspx)

History of The Star Spangled Salute

“A Star Spangled Salute has aired on WPXI Channel 11 since July 4, 1990. The fireworks have been provided by Zambelli Fireworks. Before July 4, 1994 the fireworks show was on July 3 instead of the 4th. Some of the hosts of A Star Spangled Salute have been Chris Long, David Johnson, Bob Bruce, and Darieth Chisolm. The fireworks show usually start at around 9:37 p.m. if not a little earlier than that. The music for the Pittsburgh fireworks have be produced by KDKA (AM). Up until 2003 the music was produced by WDVE. Then in 2004 the Three Rivers Regatta combined with the event and WSHH produced the music from 2004 to 2007. Before WSHH took over the music it was a rockish type of music, in line with its format. Then the music has a patriotic tone to it. For the 2008 show WDVE has now taken over the music for the fireworks for 2008 only. Wish 99.7 has stopped providing the music for the show. For 2009 and the foreseeable future the new radio station providing the music for the Fireworks is KDKA (AM).” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Star_Spangled_Salute)

Don’t miss the City of Pittsburgh Fireworks on July 4th Point State Park @ 9:35 p.m.

If you are unable to attend, checking out the festivities by webcam is a lot of fun!
