24 Hours in Boston – A City in a Class of its Own

Marina Chetner

We celebrate the past to awaken the future. ~ John F. Kennedy, 1960

Boston is a walking city – it’s easy to lose yourself in its narrow cobblestone streets, so embedded in their past.

On a daytime stroll, you’ll pause to admire beautiful brownstones, original storefronts dating back to the 1800’s, and monuments of centuries ago. At night, the streetscapes take on the feel of an old-world Europe – the darkness embraced by the elm trees that line them; made all the more romantic by the gas lamps that illuminate them. There’s no doubt that this city is steeped in a rich history and as proud as Boston is of its roots, it doesn’t wallow in the nostalgia. After all, a creative revival is taking place in its south.

Located in proximity to Boston’s downtown and fringed by Fort Point Channel and Inner Harbour, the neighbourhoods of Seaport District…

Begonia Flower Carpet of Brussels

Every two years in Brussels since 1971 on the Grand-Place a Flower Carpet is put together and displayed. This year the Brussels Flower Carpet will be on view August 14-19, 2012.

The Flower Carpet is made from the beautiful summer-flowering perennials, the begonia. Belgium cultivates nearly 60 million begonia tubers annually as one of the worlds’ largest producer.  The production of the Flower Carpet begins a year in advance. Each time the theme is different. To construct the Flower Carpet it takes about 120 volunteers and anywhere from 500,000 to 1,000,000 begonias.

Today would have been Johnny Cash’s 80th Birthday. Cash was a versatile, talented musician. Today in Dyess, AR they are having a tribute in Cash’s honor by opening his boyhood home to the public. Arkansas State University funded the restoration project and will be hosting a viewing today, while his family will be having a Johnny Cash Tribute Fest. Also, in Nashville, TN the Johnny Cash 18,000 sq ft. museum is underway to open this summer.

“You can ask the people around me. I don’t give up. I don’t give up… and it’s not out of frustration and desperation that I say I don’t give up. I don’t give up because I don’t give up. I don’t believe in it” ~Johnny Cash

In this eightieth year since his birth, Nashville, Tennessee, where he spent much of his music career, will see a new legacy from Johnny Cash, as well.

Rosanne Cash, herself a professional musician and songwriter, says “ This entire year we celebrate not just [my father’s] roots and history, but the…
