One Hit Wonders of Yesteryear Part Five
Another little series this one about one hit wonders. It is surprising to note that all of these songs are memorable but just had their one shining moment for the artists and no other great hits followed. This is the fifth post in this series. I will add the links below as I go along.
Beautiful Tumbling Water
Austria The Krimml Waterfalls are located in Hohe Tauern National Park. The park is one of the largest nature reserves in Europe straddling Tyrol, Carinthia, and Salzburgerlands. It includes the highest peak in Austra, the Grossglockner. You can access the waterfall by taking the Wasserfallweg or Waterfall Trail that begins at the ticket office. The trail takes you through mixed forest with many viewpoints of the falls along the way. The Krimmler Ache plunges down for 1246 feet over three waterfall stages all surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery. After you’ve viewed that falls you might like to hike through the valley to the Krimmler Tauernhaus, a 600-year-old tavern.
A Bird by Any Other Name
Alligator snapping turtles are a large species of turtles. They’re the largest freshwater species of turtles in North America. They can be found primarily in the southeastern US waters from the Florida Panhandle west to East Texas, north to southeastern Kansas, Missouri, southeastern Iowa, western Illinois, southern Indiana, western Kentucky, and western Tennessee. Their habitats include rivers, lakes, and canals. Alligator snapping turtles are carnivores and consist of fish, fish carcasses, mollusks, carrion, and amphibians. They’re also known to eat snakes, crayfish, worms, water birds, aquatic plants, other turtles, and at times even alligators.
St. Petersburg the Sunshine City
St. Petersburg is the second-largest city in the Tampa Bay Area. The city is located on the Pinellas Peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. It’s connected to mainland Florida to the north. Because the city has on the average 361 days of sunshine annually it has been given the nickname “The Sunshine City”.
Hometown New York City Brooklyn
For people living in small to mid-size hometowns it is easy to write about their towns. However, for someone like me who was born and raised in New York City it is rather difficult. Therefore I will look upon the borough of Brooklyn as my small town away from the teeming streets of Manhattan and the other boroughs. If you know about Brooklyn and find a neighborhood missing it is just that I wrote about all the ones I knew and where I have been. I was born in a very quiet corner of Brooklyn called Bay Ridge so I began my tour there. This article is about the neighborhoods Brooklyn Chinatown, Bushwick, Crown Heights, and Ditmas Park As I continue I will paste the links for the neighborhoods I have written about below.
Musical Alphabet Letter Z
Usually, we choose songs we like by the melody, the lyrics, and by the musical genre. I’m starting a series with songs from all kinds of genres going according to the alphabet. Here are songs with titles that begin with the letter Z. Links will be posted below as we proceed through the ABCs. At the end, you’ll find the links to the songs with titles that begin with the letters A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W X, and Y. This is the last article in this series.
One Hit Wonders of Yesteryear Part Four
Another little series this one about one-hit wonders. It is surprising to note that all of these songs are memorable but just had their one shining moment for the artists and no other great hits followed. This is the fourth post in this series. I will add the links below as I go along.
The Great White Way Part Two
This nickname is used for a section of Broadway in Manhattan, New York City that is between 41st and 53rd Streets. These streets are clustered in an area around Times Square and are often referred to as the Theater District. Broadway itself has 41 theaters around Times Square and you can see many lit-up billboards, posters, and marquees that promote the latest musicals and plays. Part Two includes some of the most popular musicals that once played on Broadway. The link for Part One is below.
Ghostly Happenings in Tennessee
The Carnton Mansion is considered the most haunted house in Tennessee. Now it is a museum located in the town of Franklin, TN which is about 15 miles south of Nashville. The mansion sits on land that was once the site of a bloody Civil War battle, where many soldiers were killed in a shower of bullets.
Tampa on the Gulf Coast
The city of Tampa stretches along the north shore of Tampa Bay and the east shore of Old Tampa Bay. Visiting the city take a walk along the Tampa Rivewalk stretching along the waterfront with awesome views of the Hillsborough River. The walk starts at Sparkman Wharf and ends at the Armature Works either way you can choose your starting and ending point.
