The call came to Memphis Fire Station No. 29 at 2:33 p. m. on Tuesday, August 16, 1977. The dispatcher indicated that someone at 3754 Elvis Presley Boulevard was having difficulty breathing. “Go to the front gate and go to the front of the mansion,” the voice directed. Ambulance Unit No. 6 swung out of the station onto Elvis Presley Boulevard and headed south, siren wailing, advertising a speed that the ponderous machine had not yet achieved. The “mansion,” as the dispatcher called it, was Elvis Presley’s home, Graceland, three miles south of the fire station. They had been there often, to take care of fans fainting at the front gate and pedestrians injured by passing automobiles. Two years before, one of the medics, Charles Crosby, had come to assist Elvis’s father, Vernon Presley, after he suffered a heart attack. On this run Crosby was driving the ambulance. Members of the Memphis Fire Department, they had received eighty-eight hours of special training to become emergency medical technicians and had years of experience. On each call, they alternated between driving and riding in the back with the ill or injured. In a city not yet fully air-conditioned, many working Memphians breathed the hot, damp air, mopped their brows, and thought fondly about getting home to an icy drink on their shady screened-in porches.
LONDON, Oct 10 (Reuters) - A lack of buyers willing and able to take on ageing oil rigs in Britain's North Sea has stalled deal flow this year, creating a headache for North American firms who are under pressure from shareholders to sell. Marathon, Conoco and Talisman have all put North Sea assets on the block, but the bigger packages are slow to change hands due to wrangling over decommissioning costs, financing problems for smaller buyers, and the fact that some rigs have very... Just four deals were announced in the third quarter, although large packages continued to come to market including Conoco's 24 percent stake in the Clair oilfield. "Everyone is cutting costs, cutting capital expenditure, trying to sell down assets at the same time and there is a paucity of buyers," said Stephen Murray, a partner at law firm Herbert Smith Freehills. "It's a buyers' market for exploration and development projects," agreed Jon Clark, a partner at Ernst & Young. The smaller, non-operated stakes are still able to find buyers, with Premier selling stakes in three fields to Hungary's MOL in the summer, but the bigger, more complex assets are a problem to get away. It is also a reflection of the fact that the North Sea is seen as less attractive when compared with other opportunities around the globe in Mexico, South East Asia and Africa.
But the modern day gadgets we drool over are definitely fleeting things, designed to be regularly replaced by the next shiny smart-device that tempts our fancy.

Along with the Colonel Littleton logo/branding embossed into the leather, you can have the bag personalized with your initials engraved onto the decorative brass plate.
