What a Wonderful World, *plus* My 900th Post

Sunday, June 9, 2013

To honor Sir David Attenborough who just concluded narrating his final series on the BBC, a UK ad agency mashed up footage from his BBC shows with his spoken-word recording of Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."

I love this video!  This is my 900th post, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I!

Have a blessed Sunday!

Beautiful Sunday

Until next time...
