People-Presley-Graceland

photo taken 01 August 1985 shows Graceland, the Elvis Presley mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. Lisa-Marie Presley, the daughter of the rock legend, celebrated her 30th birthday 01 February and "finally inherited some 205 million US dollars from her father's estate," according to a British newspaper report 31 January. Lisa-Marie, who was due to inherit the estate, which includes the property, when she was 25, left the control to her mother Priscilla for the past five years due to the latter's successful handling of the Elvis Presley Enterprises and the famous mansion.

Girl Guides faced a giant-sized problem when they volunteered to wash a double-decker bus

Girl Guides faced a giant-sized problem when they volunteered to wash a double-decker bus to raise money for disabled children. Members of the 27th St Albans company in Stratford Street, Stoke, Coventry, were taking part in a sponsored car wash fortnight organised by the Children's Society. There are prizes for the most unusual vehicle washed and the Coventry Motor Museum agreed to let them tackle a 1963 Daimler bus. Armed with sponges, clothes and chamois leathers, the girls had to use mobile scaffolding and hoses to reach the top of the bus, but they did a sterling job and it was soon looking spick and span. They will be in action again tomorrow at the Ring Road Garage in Tower Street, Coventry, where they will be washing customers cars.
