National Cherry Blossom Festival

The National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., is held when the cherry trees planted around the Potomac River Tidal Basin bloom. The 3,000 trees were a gift to the city of Washington from the city of Tokyo, Japan, in 1912, and today they are the focal point of a two-week festival celebrating the friendship between the two countries. The festivities include formal receptions for the 52 festival princesses (representing the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the territory of Guam) and a Cherry Blossom parade through downtown Washington.

This Day in History
Robert Koch Announces Discovery of Tuberculosis Bacterium (1882)

Tuberculosis, a contagious, wasting disease that commonly attacks the lungs but may affect other organs and systems as well, is caused by several strains of mycobacteria, particularly Mycobacterium tuberculosis in humans. First identified in 1882 by German bacteriologist Robert Koch, M. tuberculosis is unusual because of its lipid-rich cell wall and because it divides every 15 to 20 hours, when other bacteria divide in minutes. Why are these bacteria sometimes called red snappers? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Article of the Day:
Snake Charming

Most common in South Asia and North Africa, snake charming is the practice of “charming” snakes through music and rhythmic body movements. Street performers set up in front of audiences and use different methods to draw out their snakes—often venomous varieties such as cobras—which sometimes appear to move along with the music. A typical performance may also include handling the snakes or performing other seemingly dangerous acts. Why is snake charming becoming increasingly rare in India?

  1. 2 of 5
    Holly came from Miami F.L.A.
    Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
    Plucked her eyebrows on the way
    Shaved her legs and then he was a she
    She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,
    Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side.

    Candy came from out on the island,
    In the backroom she was everybody’s darling,
    But she never lost her head
    Even when she was giving head
    She sayes, hey baby, take a walk on the wild side
    Said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
    And the colored girls go,

    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

    Little Joe never once gave it away
    Everybody had to pay and pay
    A hustle here and a hustle there
    New York City is the place where they said:
    Hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
    I said hey Joe, take a walk on the wild side

    Sugar Plum Fairy came and hit the streets
    Lookin’ for soul food and a place to eat
    Went to the Apollo
    You should have seen him go, go, go
    They said, hey Sugar, take a walk on the wild side
    I said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side, alright, huh

    Jackie is just speeding away
    Thought she was James Dean for a day
    Then I guess she had to crash
    Valium would have helped that bash
    She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side
    I said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side
    And the colored girls say

    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
    Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

As it was before shall it ever ever be
Hear it on the crying wind
Heart it weeping on the sea
Through the winder valley wild and through the darkest night
Here comes the evil news of the coming fight
So love bring your birds bring your feathers of peace
All through the storm let the tides release
Love bring your birds bring your feathers of peace
All through the storm let the tides release

Come on down lost angel find us now
From the clouds above right down to the ground
Come on down lost angel find us now
From the clouds above right down to the ground
Lost Angels come on down
Stardust yeah we are and the river is pushed to bend
Too much too much of man
And stardust we will someday be again
Oh love bring your birds bring your feathers of peace
All through the storm let the tide release
Love bring your birds bring your feathers of peace
All through the storm let the tide release
Come on down lost angel find us now
From the clouds above right down to the ground
Come on down lost angel find us now
From the clouds above right down to the ground
Lost Angels come on down
