"Calling Elvis..."

"Calling Elvis..."
Originally uploaded by Tapio Hurme.

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great winter break and that you are excited to get back to school!

Seeing as how our last day of school in 2007 was marked by our fantastic 50's party, I thought it was a pretty interesting coincidence that today, your second day of school in 2008, is Elvis Presley's birthday. He would have been 72 years old today - that's almost as old as me! ;-)

Did you know that more than one billion (that's billion with a 'B'!) of his records have been sold. Not only that, but Elvis also acted in 31 movies and played more than one thousand concerts. His former residence, which is named 'Graceland', still gets more than 600,000 visitors every year! No wonder Elvis is still called the "King of Rock n' Roll"!

Hi Mr.C It says over 1 billion of Elvis's records have been sold. Elvis's wife gets all of his money. Even if she does nothing and has no job money comes in. Somtimes I wonder what she does with all that money.

Hey Mr.C.! Elvis's wife's name is Priccila. Did you know that their daughter was married to Michel Jackson?
