It’s the weekend and it’s time for a Beatles video or two. The first is called If The Beatles Were Irish and is awesome. The second video is a clip of one of their first times on TV.
Thanks to Mrs. Alvaro’s mom for finding the first video for us.
One of the places I’d like to visit one day is Mr. Rushmore. It looks so cool.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial, near Keystone, South Dakota, is a monumental granite sculpture by Gutzon Borglum (1867–1941), located within the United States Presidential Memorial that represents the first 150 years of the history of the United States of America with 60-foot (18 m) sculptures of the heads of former United States presidents (left to right): George Washington (1732–1799), Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826), Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919), and Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865). The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres (5.17 km2) and is 5,725 feet (1,745 m) above sea level.
Everyone has seen this famous picture of all the four presidents.
Who wouldn’t want to go visit.
My Aunt Rita just sent me this rare photo of the famous piece of scultpure from the Canadian side.
