Hey guys,

As you know from my last post I’m in California (Los Angeles to be exact) working with my Dad.  Hollywood has been fun: we’ve done some quick sightseeing and hit the hotel pool to cool down, but alas, I still have work to do.  I have to go GEOCACHING and place that Travel Bug I found in Maryland a few months ago.

Well, here is my Geocaching video roll: Hope you enjoy!

Happy Flag Day! Do you know what it is?

Flag Day: what is it?

From Wikipedia:

It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.[1] The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted “the American continental army” after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, though on June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first (and only) U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday, beginning in the town of Rennerdale.[1] Title 36 of the United States Code, Subtitle I, Part A, CHAPTER 1, § 110[4] is the official statute on Flag Day; however, it is at the President’s discretion to officially proclaim the observance.

One of the longest-running Flag Day parades is held annually in Quincy, Massachusetts, which began in 1952, celebrating its 59th year in 2010.[5] The 59th Annual Appleton Wisconsin 2009 Flag Day Parade featured the U.S. Navy. The largest Flag Day parade is held annually in Troy, New York, which bases its parade on the Quincy parade and typically draws 50,000 spectators.[1][6]

Perhaps the oldest continuing Flag Day parade is at Fairfield, Washington.[7] Beginning in 1909 or 1910, Fairfield has held a parade every year since, with the possible exception of 1918, and celebrated the “Centennial” parade in 2010, along with some other commemorative events.

Wow, I never knew!

The pledge :
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Happy Flag Day USA,

Signing off,

Sam

Kentucky show airs this weekend

Wow, I just saw the Kentucky episode that we shot at the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum, it’s great. We had such a good time working with Buddy Davis on this episode and you can tell. Make sure you tune in this weekend on the NRB network, DIRECTV channel 378 at 11am EST on Saturday. I think this is our best show yet.  We are trying something new with this episode, you’ll have to tell us what you think.    I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

The Creation Museum is a great family vacation destination, check out our Kentucky episode for a peek inside.
