It's Time to Fire Up the Delorean...
Let's go back to the year of 1848...when Paul Morphy was just a young whippersnapper.
Everybody had gold fever...and the big rush to California had just begun.
Karl (not Groucho) Marx and Frederich Engels had just published The Communist Manifesto...uh oh!
Construction had just began on the Washington Monument...
(BTW...Did you know that there was an owl in the street layout of Washington D.C.?? Wierd, huh!)
And Johann Straus composed this great piece...performed here at the Amsterdam Arena - with pageantry on grand scale!!
Unfortunately, Johann could not attend.
Hope you stick around for the balloons...bye!
