Paul Robeson was a man with an extraordinary voice. This site has some information on him and a download of the only version of Old Man River anybody ever listens to. www.african americans.com/PaulRobeson OldManRiver.htm


song FROM DISTANT PAST


This is fascinating, if you like


history and want to listen to something that was recorded almost 100 years ago - Bert Williams singing Nobody. We would do well to remember just how difficult it must have been for a black man in the United States to have been able to make a recording way back in 1906. www.indiana.edu/{tilde}jah/teaching/2004_03/sources/ex1_nobodyrecord.shtml


FAR OUT PHOTOS


This site had an amazing picture of the Space Shuttle a few days ago and although that one is now not to be seen, they do put up a different astronomy pic every day - interesting. http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html


STUPIDITY SURPRISE


This one is great, although some of the winners will certainly surprise you. Just when you thought the category of 'dumbest country' was all wrapped up, along comes a burst of speed from a dark horse - and we have a surprise winner. www.stupidityawards.com
