Five Things You Need to Know About The Black Box

For unfortunate reasons and circumstances, an airline’s black box – the vital piece of technology that can often answer unanswered questions – has been in the news quite a bit this year. The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the shooting down of Malaysia Flight 17, the crash of a TransAsia plane in Taiwan … barely a news story went by that didn’t make reference to the discovery, or need to discover, the black box.

So we thought we’d take a few moments to answer Five Things You Should Know About a Black Box.

Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley

On Thursday the 7th of August we took a road trip to Robinsonville, MS to stay at Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino. On our trip we decided we would go to Graceland and head up to Nashville to visit family and go to the Johnny Cash Museum. Since we were going to Graceland, we figured we might as well check out Graceland Too and Elvis’ birthplace. It was random that it ended up also being Elvis Presley Week.

Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino I would not recommend. The walls were paper thin, we didn’t get our room cleaned one of the days, we were left with towels with holes in them and the food at the buffet wasn’t that good either. We would probably stay at the Horseshoe the next time. We tried their buffet and it was much better. The staff at Sam’s Town was very nice and friendly.

We went out to the River Bend Links Golf Course the first morning we were there. It was a nice course.

Elvis Presley Week

Elvis Presley passed away August 16, 1977. Elvis was born in Tupelo, MS where he grew up poor. He started his career by making a $4 gift at Sam Phillips studio, Sun Studios for his Mother. Sam Phillips was intrigued by Elvis’ voice and asked him to return to the studio to practice with local musicians. This was the launch of the “King of Rock and Roll”.
