Watch “Walk Away Renee – The Left Banke” on YouTube


And when I see the sign that points one way The lot we used to pass by every day Just walk away Renee You won’t see me follow you back home The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same You’re not to blame From deep inside the tears that I’m forced to cry From deep inside the pain that I chose to hide Just walk away Renee You won’t see me follow you back home Now as the rain beats down upon my weary eyes For me it cries Just walk away Renee You won’t see me follow you back home Now as the rain beats down upon my weary eyes For me it cries Your name and mine inside a heart upon a wall Still finds a way to haunt me, though they’re so small Just walk away Renee You won’t see me follow you back home The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same You’re not to blame Read more: Left Banke – Walk Away Renee Lyrics | MetroLyrics

Icelandic Festival

Today’s Birthday:
Neil Alden Armstrong (1930)

Armstrong became a pilot at 16, studied aeronautical engineering, and won three medals as a US Navy pilot in the Korean War. He became test pilot in 1955 and joined the space program in 1962.

This Day in History:
First Electric Traffic Light Is Installed (1914)

Prior to 1914, there had been several attempts to create automobile traffic signals similar to those used by railroads, but it was only after a four-way electric signal was installed in Cleveland, Ohio, that the modern traffic light system began to take root. The signal had only two colors, green and red, but the three-color version still in use today was not far off. What US city claims to be home to the oldest working traffic light in the country?
