Berlin Wall, Earth Cams, and TV Theme Songs

I have shared the Denver Post's Photo Blog on multiple occasions. The quality of pictures they share as well as their highly relevant topics make their site one of my all time favorites. In 2009 they published a collection of 73 pictures about the Berlin Wall to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Wall's collapse. As with everything published by the Denver Post's photo blog, the pictures are spectacular. I encourage everyone to take sometime to look through this important part of world history at the Denver Post's Photo Blog.

Earth Cam is a cool site that features live web cams from all over the world. See live shots of Times Square, Florida beaches, the Statue of Liberty, Caribbean Islands, or the Eiffel Tower. You can choose a country from their map and take a look at their wide variety of web cams as well. Earth Cams is an enjoyable way to see the world. Foreign language and history teachers should bookmark this site today.

Listening to music can often lead to feelings of nostalgia. A song can send your mind to an event in your past and flood you with the emotions from the memory. Hearing and old television theme song can do the same thing. TV has been a force in our lives for a long time and hearing the opening song to our favorite show can bring us back to earlier and simpler times. Television Tunes is site that contains a library of theme songs from television shows old and new. Head on over and browse through their extensive collection and I am sure you'll find a few theme songs that will bring a smile to your face.
