SoCalChevy 2013-11-16 12:44
A few months ago, I shared some of my favorite American folk songs. Now, to show that I also listen to more recent music, I will post some of my favorite music videos of American songs from the 1990s and later. I will also include notes on the stories I have heard about what the songs mean. Also, are any of these bands/musicians known in China? Under the Bridge, by Red Hot Chili Peppers. Most of the band members used to use heroin. Once, the leader singer (Anthony Kiedis) had to buy them un ...

I realize that most of my blogs focus on pictures. So, I thought I would post some more of my poetry to show that I do have an interest in writing.

USS Iowa visit
The USS Iowa is a WWII battleship that is now a museum not far from my hometown.I was excited when I found out it was to be kept there, since I like visiting old ships. I made sure to be there when it was pulled in to the dock. This past summer, I finally got a chance to tour the museum. Here are some of the pictures: The square bathtub was for President Franklin Roosevelt, who travelled on the Iowa and could not use the ship's showers because of his disability. ...

Natural Beauty of New England
A few weeks ago, I visited New England, a part of America that consists of the states of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

The first picture is in the Green Mountains of Vermont: These next pictures are in Franconia Notch State Park, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire:
