Belief In Angels Proof Against Lightning, Bullets, Bats And Banes

DOVER-FOXCROFT — She’s been shot at, mugged and has had a bat tangled in her hair.

If that doesn’t make your skin crawl, Jeanne Rogers, 58, also has been struck by lightning twice, has fallen into a manhole and off a cruise ship, was nearly strangled, and she unwittingly helped Fred Rogers, the late star of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, get naked.

"People think I’m a little paranoid when I walk a mile to avoid a manhole or won’t walk under a ladder," Rogers said during an interview this week. "There’s so many things I won’t do because I know what can happen."

While Rogers dispels the target-on-her-back theory, she does believe she has an angel perched on her shoulder.

"I do worry. Things do happen to me even though I’m careful," she said this week, standing among an eclectic collection of new and used clothing, colorful jewelry, handbags and whimsical items in her small consignment and gift shop on River Street.

'Blind' Man Took Over From Drunk Driver

A virtually blind New Zealand man has been banned from driving after taking the wheel from a drink driver.

Te Aute Matuakore Collier, 29, from Hamilton, was guided by a drunk passenger but crashed into a wall, reports

Collier, who has just five per cent sight, admitted a charge of reckless driving when he appeared in the Hamilton District Court.

He had been in the back of the car when he told the driver to pull over so he could drive because both the driver and front-seat passenger were drunk.

The front-seat passenger helped steer the car and both passengers told Collier to turn into a supermarket carpark.

Collier told police he just wanted to park the vehicle and get it off the road - but he missed the entrance and hit a wall.

He was disqualified from driving for two years and ordered to pay court costs.

Car Colors & What They Mean

Some actual research in the UK matched car colors with personality traits.

But a more practical aspect is that the colors are listed here in order of accident frequency--black most often (twice the average) and cream the safest.

By the way, ever notice what color the presidential SUVs are?

Black cars denote an aggressive personality or someone who's an outsider or rebel.

Silver cars indicate someone who's cool, calm and slightly aloof.

Green cars can often be chosen by people with hysterical tendencies.

Yellow cars signify someone who is idealistic and novelty loving.

Blue cars are chosen by the more introspective, reflective and cautious driver.

Gray cars represent those who are calm, sober and dedicated to their work.

Red cars denote those who are full of zest, energy and drive and who think, move and talk quickly.

Pink cars are chosen by gentle, loving and affectionate drivers.

White cars represent status-seeking extrovert drivers.

Cream cars are the least likely to be involved in accidents and denote self-contained and controlled owners.
