El Museo del Prado y el Flamenco

The Museo Nacional del Prado and the Association of Flamenco Venues in Madrid created this video in celebration of World Tourism Day. Stars of flamenco and Spanish dance perform in front of master works. It’s a beautiful combination of dance and art!

A Lovely Song for your Saturday Morning

I’ll Be There (Jackson 5) by The Melisizwe Brothers
Sweet and ever so charming! This was filmed four years ago, and their musical abilities have only gotten better with age! Check out all their videos on their YouTube Channel here.

Extraordinary Finds!

This will inspire you to go through your attics and basements – maybe you have a treasure?

The Antiques Roadshow is a favorite of PBS viewers, and what’s not to like? Watch people’s lives change over items they’ve had in their houses for years, with no idea of their value – both culturally and monetary.

Are you a car fan? Enjoy the ingenuity and sculptural designs of these amazing Alfa Romeos, designed by Franco Scaglione.

Everything Feels Surreal

“It’s obvious that other worlds exist, that’s certain; but, as I’ve already said in many other occasions, these other worlds are inside ours, they reside on earth and are precisely at the centre of the dome of the Dalí Museum, which contains the new, unsuspected and hallucinatory world of Surrealism.” – Salvador Dali

The Dalí Theatre-Museum in Catalonia, Spain, was built to showcase the surreal and wonderful work of the artist Salvador Dali. Since traveling is still dicey, enjoy this 3-D tour of the space. Click here for the tour, and click here for more information on the museum.

A Snoring Hummingbird

From the BBC comes Super Cute Animals. The title perfectly suits these short videos. The snoring hummingbird is absolutely adorable.

Did you know Sea Otters need diligent grooming? When Mom can’t do it, the sea otter rehabilitation team at Monterey aquarium step in.
