Seven-Year-Old Rhema Marvanne sings USA’s National Anthem

For a lot of my international readers, perhaps you’ve never been formally introduced to the national anthem of the USA except through Olympic ceremonies and such. Here’s a good opportunity to hear it clearly — via the lungs of a very talented 7-year-old girl, Rhema Marvanne Voraritskul.

To my fellow Americans: I understand a lot of my international readers may not “read” these text posts because of the language barrier, but visit the site because it’s largely pictures that cross that barrier. Hopefully they’ll watch the video though!

Did the Google Maps Vehicle Hit A Deer?

I came across this image (one, combined of 3 images) of a few Google Maps screen shots of what appears to be deer getting hit by the vehicle that takes pictures of the street-level view you may optionally choose when looking up an address.

The image is at least a year old, going by the date on this other blog post about it (which contains one additional image). I naturally tried visiting the location myself on Google Maps by typing in the address shown, 840 Five Points Rd, Rush NY but it appears that particular section of road has been removed from the street-view function. If you look in the distance from this view you can see the interruption of the 3-plank fence, but you can’t travel any further down the road in that direction.

This blog post has a video embedded about another gent’s similar exploration in to the image.

Is it any wonder, the road is called “Five Points” road? =P
