If you were a wee ones watching The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show in the 60's then get out there NOW and reserve a copy of The Beatles RockBand. The game is available on September 9 and should be a winner! Songs from all different styles are on the game. In addition, songs from Abby Road will be released for RockBand in October. It appears as if there will be a dribble of Beatlemania this fall. Perhaps it will continue to a flood. It will if any of those Ed Sullivan fans are gamers! I have already placed a deposit for mine!

Before you go to your nearest game store to place a deposit, check the deals. Blockbuster had NO deal. GameStop will give 3 free songs for advance deposit there. WAlMart is offering a $10 gift card with deposit. Blockbuster is offering a Beatles baseball style hat. So look for the bargain before placing your deposit.
Songs included on the game:
  • I Saw Her Standing There
  • Boys
  • Do You Want To Know A Secret
  • Twist And Shout
  • I Wanna Be Your Man
  • I Want to Hold Your Hand

Each start of a new school reminds us to reflect upon our experiences as a youngster. This kindergarten class is the class of 2022! There are many things these students will not get to experience because they are no longer in existance. From Wired magazine, here is a partial list of 100 things. The rest can be found at their website article: 100 Things You Kids May Never Know, by Nathan Barry, July 22, 2009 Issue.

  • "Inserting a VHS tape into a VCR to watch a movie or to record something.
  • Super-8 movies and cine film of all kinds.
  • Playing music on an audio tape using a personal stereo. See what happens when you give a Walkman to today’s teenager.
  • The number of TV channels being a single digit. I remember it being a massive event when Britain got its fourth channel.
  • Tweaking the volume setting on your tape deck to get a computer game to load, and waiting ages for it to actually do it.
  • Daisy chaining your SCSI devices and making sure they’ve all got a different ID.
  • Counting in kilobytes.
  • Wondering if you can afford to buy a RAM upgrade.
  • Blowing the dust out of a NES cartridge in the hopes that it’ll load this time.
  • Turning a PlayStation on its end to try and get a game to load.
  • Joysticks.
  • Taking turns picking a radio station, or selecting a tape, for everyone to listen to during a long drive.
  • Remembering someone’s phone number.
  • Not knowing who was calling you on the phone". or even a party line!
If anything, the entire list will give you a chuckle.

Arctic Hare (Lepus arcticus)Image via Wikipedia

There are so many great sites for science, but once again I came across something good for elementary science called The Arctic Hare. You must create a food chain from the animals listed on the page. Simple you say, well give it a try. There are links for educator resources, arctic hare cam, 3D images, and lesson ideas along with video clips. This is definitely worth the stop.

I enjoyed my recent weekend visit to Washington DC. During this short 4 day stay I visited the Holocaust Museum, Newseum, Indian Museum, Botanical Garden,and National Geographic exhibits. In addition, I attended a friends wedding held at the DAR Museum. It was a wonderful weekend.

I had read about AudioBoo.com and how easy it was to create a podcast from an iPhone, so I decided to give it a try. Here is the link to all of the casts I made from the Indian Museum: http://audioboo.fm/boos/51025-chesapeake-native-americans . Below is how the audio podcasts appear as you embed them into a blog:

Listen!
