My Virtual Lions Gate BREAK - July 13, 2020 

The Andy Griffith Show (1960–1968) was a go-to program for many. The show took place in the fictional town of Mayberry, North Carolina, where Andy, a widower, was the sheriff and town sage. Here is a reunion from 1993.








Lunch topic of conversation: Who was the first man in space? Do you remember where you were? Who was the first man to walk on the moon? Did you watch the launch of the First Space Shuttle Columbia on April 12, 1981? The links below answer all of these questions.    


Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin (9 March 1934 -- 27 March 1968) was a Soviet pilot and cosmonaut. He was the first human to journey into outer space, when his Vostok spacecraft completed an orbit of the Earth on April 12, 1961


Neil Armstrong became the first man to step foot on the moon on July 21, 1969. Not only did this transform human history but also changed Neil's life forever. 


“Where were you when the First Shuttle Columbia launched on April 12, 1981?







Hidden Figures is a great movie to watch (unfortunately not on NetFlix) about some of the brains behind the work of NASA. Hidden Figures is the true story of three African-American women who worked for NASA in the 1950s and '60s. They served as "human computers" doing complex mathematics and engineering tasks to help launch the manned spaceflight program - particularly, sending astronaut John Glenn into orbit. Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson are all brilliant women who've landed jobs as computers at NASA's Langley Research Center (in the segregated West Area Computers division). 

Time for some exercise - Sherry Zak Morris - First song is Stop in the Name of Love.  If you let this play on there should be other great music and yoga dance moves.













A little culture? Have you been to Amsterdam? Do you love art? Have you always wanted to be alone in the Van Gogh Museum? Step into Vincent’s world and enjoy the private video tour.


Here is a lovely collaboration of musical icons. Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Lady Gaga, Lang Lang, John Legend perform The Prayer. If you stay on (and just to skip ad) then you will see We Are The World.


I hope you have a great day. Please send me your comments, suggestions for future 'days' or let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Please send me your feedback. It will help me build a better program for YOU.
