We Didn't Start The Fire

I really like the Billy Joel song, We Didn't Start the Fire....but never caught all the mentions.

This online video illustrates the song, all the mentions of people and events with still shots, and the year they are from...and if you want to pause and learn about the person or instance you can click on the image and get connected to an entry at wikipedia. OR you can just enjoy the song.

I do think this is one of the fun ways to use the internet -- finding people whose hobby has overwhelmed them. This guy spent over 40 hours developing this and it has had over 11 million viewings!

Check it out yourself (and as for me -- I've gone to live links...just click):

You're up early today! Thanks for the link to "Fire." I enjoyed it while it made me shiver.

Speaking of shivering I awoke to snow on the deck. Joyce and I are looking forward to spending next week in Md. and Va.

Best wishes,

Tyler's Dad

P.S. Charley has returned to his home. We had fun
