[Take Pinnacle Page Full] A four-month-old north Florida farm goat is drawing attention from the fans of the late Dale Earnhardt. The brown goat named Lil' Dale, was born with a distinctive white number-three on her right side, the number made famous by Earnhardt.
His owner says the goat was born with the number -- and that the marking was not painted on, shaved on, or otherwise manufactured.

The Oscar nominated actor is taking a trip around the world in a Boeing 707- that HE will pilot.
Travolta is an ambassador pilot on behalf of Australia's Qantas Airlines. Also aboard are Travolta's wife and children, plus crew members.
He's no stranger to the skies. He has spent as many hours flying as he has acting. The 48-year-old began taking flight lessons at sixteen, and earned his license in 1981.
As Travolta prepared to take off-- he seemed eager to start his trip.
