History of Ah-murr-a--ca.

We got this free DVD from this History Channel and it's called America: The Story of Us or something like that. Mom and I are really, really enjoying it. It's very--informative. There are three C.D's, with four episodes each which are a little more than a half-hour long. We're on the third C.D now. We just finished the second one last night.

One thing that has bugged me through this whole thing is how every AMERICAN who is talking say America like, 'Ah-murr-a-ca.'  Annoying, yes? Why can't they say, 'A-mer-a-ca'? So, that's one pet peeve right thar.

On of the things I love about it is that it's not a bunch of old guys talking about the history of America. They have almost everything they're talking about acted out. Sure they replay a lot (I mean A LOT) of clips but it still makes it feel like they have footage of what the people went through and their life style. 

Now for some photography.

  1. Well, I say 'war-ter' for 'water', so I can't comment about 'ah-murr-a-ca' LOL
    It was fun to watch though!
    And you are a very perceptive photographer.
