Veep

God, I love Veep and I have a bit of a thing for Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She’s awesome – watch Veep for proof!

Is it me, or is American politics just cooler than UK politics?! I can’t imagine Maggie Thatcher, Neil Kinnock or Gordon Brown aping themselves like this.

Timelapse: Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

This is a quite spectacular time-lapse video of a hot air balloon festival. You are never too old to appreciate a balloon (or several hundred!)

It’s also worth checking out Roadtrippers.com’s YouTube channel as their other videos are pretty great too!

The President of the USA

Obama

That is all…

Enterprise Retires To New York

As the NASA space shuttle program comes to a close, a series of commemorative flybys by the remaining craft are producing some amazing sights as they glide over famous landmarks in the US. Here the Space Shuttle Enterprise flies over New York as it comes to land at JFK International Airport before being retired to the USS Intrepid Air and Space Museum. As one of the women being interviewed says in the news report, it is also poignant that the shuttle was able to fly over Manhattan with cheering crowds as New Yorker’s have taken back their skies. I’m sure Enterprise will be a very popular tourist attraction when it is installed on the Intrepid. It is a sad day though to be sure as it is an end of era for the US and it’s manned space exploration. Hopefully something new is being designed, a space craft that will continue the exciting work of its predecessor.

USA Tornados

My heart goes out to all those effected by the devastating storms that have struck across the US in these freak tornado incidents. Shocking footage and unbelievable damage. Donate to your charity of choice to help those effected. Over 200 killed and thousands effected.
