American History, Louisiana, Texas

It’s become a tradition here on the blog to recognise the week of July 4th, you know, that time of year when Americans celebrate their Americanness with fireworks (invented by the Chinese) and ‘Made in the U.S.A.’ t-shirts (most likely made in China). In past years I’ve you told you...

Famous Endings Museum, Ohio

Who says there is nothing to do when someone dies? That’s not true, especially if you have a wake at the Toland-Herzig Funeral Homes & Crematory in Dover, Ohio. Unlike most funeral homes where visitors are sometimes “bored to death”, there is actually something to do here. “Buried deep” in...

Belhaven Memorial Museum, North Carolina

Belhaven Memorial Museum, North Carolina

As someone fascinated with people who obsessively collect, the Belhaven Memorial Museum sounds like it’s right up my hoarder alley. Located in a historic town hall, this giant antique store…ahem, I mean museum…displays over 40,000 objects that once belonged to one woman, Miss Eva Blount Way. (what a pleasant-looking lady,...

Moomaw America’s One and Only Hippie Memorial

Forget about San Francisco or Woodstock or wherever it is hippies live nowadays. Arcola is the home of Moomaw America’s One and Only Hippie Memorial. Although I live in the state of Illinois, going south of Chicago is too far south for me so I don’t think I’ll ever get...

Hawaiian Elvis in Oahu

Hawaiian Elvis in Oahu

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELVIS PRESLEY! Although he’s been dead for nearly forty years, Elvis fans celebrate his birthday like he’s still around. (And who knows? Maybe he still is.)
