Wonderland in Hamburg, Germany
Remember the two brothers, in Germany, who had a wonderful model railway that was something to see? This is an update of their German Wonderland. A short review, it was started by two brothers as a place to show their hobby began to grow by leaps & bounds. Soon they were joined by other 'Model Railroad Clubs' and other craftsmen. Some were electricians, model makers, carpenters, computer programmers. Their wives would stop by to see what they were doing and usually bring them a lunch.
One thing led to another. Three of the ladies had worked at a bakery, several visitors would ask if they had a snack bar. The idea was planted; some of the carpenters came and built a nice restaurant area for the bakery and a kitchen, too. If the fresh coffee smell didn't get you, then the bakery definitely would. Over 400,000 man hours were spent making this dream come true.
This was about 5 years ago. One of the breweries came and furnished all the tables and chairs, serving counter etc. Their latest finished area is the airport. Planes look like they are flying and landing. GERMAN WONDERLAND IN HAMBURG link below - AMAZING!

> *In God we trust.*
> Frank Sinatra considered Kate Smith the best singer of her time, and said
> that when he and a million other guys first heard her sing "God Bless
> America" on the radio, they all pretended to have dust in their eyes as
> they wiped away a tear or two.
> Here are the facts.... The link at the bottom will take you to a
> video showing the very first public singing of "GOD BLESS AMERICA". But
> before you watch it, you should also know the story behind the first public
> showing of the song.
> The time was 1940. America was still in a terrible economic
> depression. Hitler was taking over Europe and Americans were afraid we'd
> have to go to war. It was a time of hardship and worry for most Americans.
> This was the era just before TV, when radio shows were HUGE, and American
> families sat around their radios in the evenings, listening to their
> favorite entertainers, and no entertainer of that era was bigger than Kate
> Kate was also large; plus size, as we now say, and the popular phrase
> still used today is in deference to her, "It ain't over till the fat lady
> Kate Smith might not have made it big in the age of TV, but with
> her voice
> coming over the radio, she was the biggest star of her time. Kate was also
> patriotic. It hurt her to see Americans so depressed and afraid of what the
> next day would bring. She had hope for America, and faith in her fellow
> Americans. She wanted to do something to cheer them up, so she went to the
> famous American song-writer, Irving Berlin (who also wrote "White
> Christmas") and asked him to write a song that would make Americans feel
> good again about their country. When she described what she was looking
> for, he said he had just the song for her. He went to his files and found a
> song that he had written, but never published, 22 years before - way back
> in 1917. He gave it to her and she worked on it with her studio orchestra.
> She and Irving Berlin were not sure how the song would be received by the
> public, but both agreed they would not take any profits from God Bless
> America. Any profits would go to the Boy Scouts of America. Over the years,
> the Boy Scouts have received millions of dollars in royalties from this
> This video starts out with Kate Smith coming into the radio studio with
> the orchestra and an audience. She introduces the new song for the very
> first time, and starts singing. After the first couple verses, with her
> voice in the background still singing, scenes are shown from the 1940
> movie, "You're In The Army Now." At the 4:20 mark of the video you see a
> young actor in the movie, sitting in an office, reading a paper; it's
> Ronald Reagan.
> To this day, God Bless America stirs our patriotic feelings and pride
> in our country. Back in 1940, when Kate Smith went looking for a song to
> raise the spirits of her fellow Americans, I doubt whether she realized
> just how successful the results would be for her fellow Americans during
> those years of hardship and worry..... And for many generations of
> Americans to follow.
> Now that you know the story of the song, I hope you'll enjoy it. Many
> people don't know there's a lead in to the song since it usually starts
> with "God Bless America ....." So here's the entire song as originally
> sung..... ENJOY!
