April 7, 2012 I visited the Richard M Nixon Presidential Library and took videos of the exhibits, the grounds, his boyhood home, and the Pat Nixon Exhibit.

This is the first, but all three can be found on YouTube on my channel (Tiggr1).

Enjoy, sorry about the music, YouTube put that in and I'm not sure how to get it out, lol

Because I'd never been there before, I went geocaching in Adrian, OR (97901). They have no cell coverage there, population 187 as of 2010, so I had to print out the maps for the two I was looking for.

The Alternate route for the Oregon Trail goes through Adrian, which was named after Adrian, Illinois, the birthplace of the man who donated the land for the town.

If you are receiving this, you probably know about iTunes for Podcasts. But, have you ever looked into iTunes U?? You can get some great programs there, University level lectures, and all for free. I've listened to a 25 lecture series on both the American Revolution and the Civil War.

This video is the joining of two different videos from LaTrobe University in Australia. All credits are at the end of each video. I found them to be both amusing and informative.

Please leave a comment on here or at if you liked it!!

I gave my grandson Charlie my Flipvideo last summer as we drove through downtown Boise, to Hyde Park, then over to the Soccer Shop. I tried to edit out all the film of the car door, lol...

I recently visited the Royal Marines Museum in Portsmouth, England, and it was so filled with great audio, I recorded as much as I could.

The volumn is a bit low, as the speakers in various rooms were not easy to be near, but you'll get the idea.

This is a very "hands on" museum, and they really cater to kids with their special school holiday programs.
