But what of the pop history of this important date? In Australia Queen were at number 1 with Bohemian Rhapsody, In the US it was The Four Seasons with December '63 (Oh what a night) and in the UK it was The Brotherhood of Man with Save your kisses for me.

I think my chance of winning the basketball prediction game aren't too good as the seahawks got knocked out on the first day instead of winning as I predicted. They lost to George Washington Colonials, 88-85 in extra time.
"If UNCW fans in Greensboro were jumping out of their skin, they were rivaled by the crowd watching the game at the University of North Carolina Wilmington’s student union dining room Thursday night.
Tied at 79-79, that led to overtime. It was a gut-wrenching game as each team volleyed point for point at the end. The noise level reached deafening proportions. Women began uttering inhuman, high-pitched squeals. Men pounded the air with their fists.
As if possessed, fans chanted: “Let’s go Seahawks! Let’s go Seahawks!”
The 200-some spectators at UNCW weren’t watching the game in person, but they may as well have been. “If it’s exciting here, you can just imagine what it’s like to be there,” said Eisman, who wore a teal Seahawks T-shirt.
A lull ensued as eighth-seeded George Washington hit one of its last shots. In an emotional climax, UNCW lost 85-88."

I had a good time checking out the volcanoes and running strange experiments. We even had a day off to go explore, sadly the cloud forest we tried to see was closed for the day and the crater pool we went to swim in was a bit intimidating. Was still very nice, I liked Granada too, looked like you think Latin America will look like. The volcano bit was pretty impressive, seeing oodles of gas burbling out of the ground and hearing lava swish about. Some photos will be available soon once I've had some time to see what there is.
