Your Weekend of Songs–Rick Nelson
After a short break when Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican were in New York and Washington, we are pleased to feature the songs of teenage idol of the 1960’s, Rick Nelson for your entertainment this weekend. He needs no introduction to men and women of Din’s generation. The millennials, however, can visit wikipedia. org for his resume which is indeed impressive.
BTW, our visit to the United States was always exciting with plenty to see. We also made new friends and renewed our contact with old ones.
We were fortunate to be in Washington on the Fourth of July and had the time to spend some time at Mount Vernon, the home of George and Martha Washington and Hanover, Va and revisit monuments around the capital and the campus of The George Washington University, just a few blocks from The White House. The Fourth of July Fireworks in Washington DC was a spectacle. Smokey Robinson and other entertainers were there to entertain all of us. It was an unforgettable occasion, thanks to our host and friend, Ambassador John R. Malott.
Please have a good weekend.–Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican
