Rosie the Riveter Home Front National Historical Park

I visited the Rosie the Riveter Home Front National Historical Park in Richmond. It focuses on how the American civilians lived, sacrificed, worked and life in general on the home front during World War II:

It was amazing to see and sometimes we forget how much sacrifice was done on the home front during World War II. It was a total effort by everybody in this country.

USC's Heritage Hall

Heritage Hall is basically the Athletic Hall of Fame for the University of Southern California. It houses many of the trophies and memorabilia of the USC sports teams. I thought it would be cool to share because college football is beginning this weekend:


Rose Bowl trophy
2013 NCAA Women's Golf Championship Trophy
1984 NCAA Women's Basketball Trophy
Cheryl Miller's 1984 Honda-Broderick Cup
John Naber's 1977 Sullivan Award
The Crosstown Cup which is given to the winner of the rivalry in sports between USC and UCLA
The big sport on campus is football and USC has a rich in history in it:

Statue of legendary football coach John McKay
Some of the USC Heisman Trophies
O.J. Simpson's Heisman Trophy
Matt Leinart's Heisman-The last USC winner in 2004
Statue of the Wild Bunch which honors the 1969 USC defensive line
Heritage Hall is quite impressive. It is something that I have always wanted to see and happy that I got to.

I went to Hayward Zucchini Festival and really enjoyed myself. It has been held in my town for 34 years and is one of most attended festivals around:

You can see that it was like any other festival I attend but this one is to honor the great Zucchini:

So cheers to the zucchini and I can't wait for next year,
