BEST DUTCH TOWN IN USA!!!:/// Holland, Michigan
This week we decided to go Dutch… literally! We explored the picturesque town of Holland, Michigan.
We are always looking for unique experiences to expose the boys to and Holland did not disappoint! The town town is full of Dutch heritage! It was also voted one of America’s prettiest cities by Forbe’s- so we had to see what all the buzz was about! We started our exploration at the gorgeous Windmill Island Gardens, and we went at the perfect time because the tulips were amazing!
In the midst of our expedition, Jonah met some new friends. I absolutely love his big personality- it just gets bigger by the day- he made his way into other people’s family photos, I mean he really knows how to captivate an audience!
A visit to Windmill Island, wouldn’t be complete without visiting a windmill. The park is home to the only authentic, working Dutch windmill in the United states! So we had to check it out!
We also decided to check out Nelis’ Dutch Village. This place was super cool! It is a family friendly attraction started by a Dutch immigrant and now it is run by a third generation in their family! This place got the boys dancing, the whole time!
We learned a ton about wooden shoes too! Did you know in order to be able to wear the shoes you need to wear anywhere from 5-10 layers off socks? Totally crazy!
The village caters to children- which is so awesome because a lot of the places we explore are more geared towards adults and there may be a few cute things for kids to do, but this place was completely interactive and you can tell the staff really takes the time to include the kids in everything! They had so much fun and made so many new friends!
Thank you so much for going Dutch with us!

Exploring Michigan City, Indiana | Historic Downtown and Lighthouse
Michigan City, Indiana has a lot of great sights to offer such as its beautiful, historic downtown and lighthouse located at the end of the pier at Washington Park. I explore the downtown area with its many historic sights including the Barker Mansion. Later, I head to Washington Park, one of the most popular attractions in Michigan City to seek out that picturesque view of the lighthouse overlooking Lake Michigan and Chicago off in the distance! Michigan City is worth making a stop when driving to or from Chicago.

Oldest mosque in Michigan celebrates 70 years
Producer/Director: Jamal Morisi
Voiceover/Co-director: Raad Alawan
Assistant Director: Nasser Shariff
Research: Dr. Izat Ali
The mosque of the American Moslem Society was established in 1937. It is the oldest mosque in the State of Michigan, and also considered one of the oldest mosques in North America. Since the mosque plays a vital role in the lives of Muslims, many Muslims immigrants established residence near and around the mosque area. As the communitys population continued to grow, so did the mosque. The mosque has evolved from a small house to a building that occupies 48,000 square feet.
AMS Mosque between 1937 and 1952
Due to the communitys growth in the vicinity of the mosque during the period from 1937 to 1952, once again the need to expand the mosque arose in order to accommodate the mosques increasing number of attendees especially during Friday and holiday prayers. In 1952, the AMS along with community members decided to launch the second expansion which doubled the size of the mosque. In that expansion, the green dome of the mosque was placed on its roof. In addition, the two small minarets were added. The size of the mosque increased from few thousand to twelve thousands square feet.
AMS Mosque between 1952 and 1986
Due to the central and important role the mosque plays in the Muslims daily lives, the mosque became a community center for people to perform their religious duties and also to socialize. The number of mosque attendees increased rapidly during the sixties, seventies and early eighties. During this period, there was a court ruling to allow the calling for prayers to be transmitted through outside speakers. It was the first mosque in the United States to be allowed to transmit call prayers through loudspeakers. After the previous expansions, in 1986, the community again decided to expand the mosque. The size of the building doubled from 12,000 to 24,000 square feet. In 1982, the weekend school was added to the mosque to start providing classes for the growing number of first generation Muslims in the community.
AMS Mosque between 1986 and 2000
Mosque attendants expectedly continued to grow in spite of opening many local mosques in Dearborn and Detroit. The number of students in the weekend school almost doubled. By the beginning of the 90s, the building could no longer accommodate the numbers of attendants to the extent that people had to pray in the basement, offices, and even outdoor. Holiday events used to be conducted in the parking lot due to the number of attendants exceeding building capacity. There was a desire to expand the weekend school, add a library, and an activities room to hold the community events. In 2000, another expansion took place. This expansion took the building from being 24000 to 48000 square feet. The weekend school was also expanded and many facilities were added to the building. The cost for the expansion was $1,800,000. The whole facility, including the parking lot, occupies more than 100,000 square feet.
Totality- Trip to Tennessee to see Solar Eclipse from Cades Cove- Great Smoky Mtns.
This is the Trip I took to Cades Cove Tennessee with friends Nick and Phil on August 22, 2017. The first video in the series is a silent time lapse of our trip from PA to TN.
10X Time Lapse Drive from Wexford, PA to Tennessee to See Solar Eclipse 8-21-2017 HD
Sep 2, 2017 9:00 PM
This video covers the drive from our hotel to Cades Cove Park. There is lots of time lapse thrown in since we spent a lot of time in traffic. I show variouus historic structures at Cades Cove, and go for a hike. Then I set up in a large field with hundreds of other science hippie types to view a total solar eclipse. This eclipse has been called the American Eclipse since the path of totality stretched from coast to coast. I time lapse the actual eclipse at speeds of about 7.5- 10X so that you can see the sliver of the sun getting smaller. While I had my Nikkln S9700 Camera set up on the ground (with no tripod, or filters)- you will see how I set it up poor man style to zoom in, and then move the camera to track the Sun's Progression through the phases of the eclipse. I used my other camera, Go Pro 5 to walk around, and shoot the scene around me. I will show you how dark it got, people, and even some nice little sun sliver shadows that were projected on the ground through trees. Note- the total solar eclipse was not nearly as dark as I expected it to be. It got as dark as a morning (30 minutes before sunrise). Venus made a rare appearance high in the sky (but no stars or other celestial bodies were visible). I saw totality (a moment that made me want to howl, and sends shivers down the back). The sun was black (black hole sun), with radiant white beams comming out in all directions. The end of the eclipse was marked by a diamond ring effect where a point of extremely bright light spills out the edge of the solar body. Unfortunately the solar eclipse glasses, which I had just ordered express delivery from an astronomical supply company were being given away or sold for $1 by park rangers. I paid $73 for a lot of 10 pairs after shipping, and was beside myself, when my mom told me that people wanted to purchase the solar eclipse glasses for $25 a piece. After the diamond ring phase, we hung around the park for about an hour (until the waning phase was nearly complete), before getting in the rental van, and heading out. It took 2 hours to get out of the park, and we were tricked by people advertising world famous ice cream. When we arrived at the counter to purchase the world famous Ice cream it was cheep ice milk, being sold at a high price. I am not sure if the ice milk and the jelly bellies I put on top of it, or the meal I had when we finally got out of the park made me sick. I ordered Shrimp, Chicken, and Steak Fajitas at a (non- Mexican Restarant), and ate despite not being hungry. After dinner I felt bloated, and knew that I would have to use the rest room in an hour. What I did not expect was the chills, sweats, violent projectile vomiting, and explosive diarrhea that I got before leaving the state of Tennessee. Everything came out, and just as fast as the unexpected episode of food poisoning came on around 10PM, it was over a little after midnight (after spending half an hour in a rest stop bathroom). Pepto bismol and tylenol also helped. I had aches and pains like the flu. I don't show any of the ugliness, just a partial time lapse in the dark on our way home, which ends before leaving Tennessee. I let Nick drive the rest of the way, since a puking driver with food poisoning is not safe.
Driving in Detroit, mostly Downtown Area.
Last 3 min of the video: some nice close-ups of the GM Building, Entrance into the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel (Canada-bound) AND a US Border Patrol Parking Lot, IMHO a total waste of money to keep so many vehicles in this very area instead of using them exactly where they are REALLY needed, The MEXICAN Border, in 20+ years I've never heard of any lunatic trying to get into Detroit, USA illegally, swimming of course.
Hopefully this video is gonna put a little smile on the brave and hardworking ppl of Detroit in these very hard times for them:
Bad, VERY bad politics of a particular political spectrum, the major cause for how Detroit looks like and experiencing nowadays.
Music by Detroit's own son, the one and only KID ROCK.

So enjoy the video, visit Detroit when in the area, listen to Kid Rock if you wish, and, last but not least: BE FREE.
