COVER STORY: Trivia questions and answers reveal our heritage in both predictable and unexpected ways. Using excerpts from our Timeless Trivia series, we present a range of trivia subjects that provide insights into our culture.

 

SCENIC AMERICA: Lake Annie, known as a sinkhole lake, is part of a biological station near the headwaters of the Everglades. The lake and surrounding grounds provide scenic, if atypical, Florida scenery.

 
 
 

ON A MUSICAL NOTE: Irving Berlin, who lived to be 101, was one of the most prolific composers in the nation. He sang one of his own songs in this segment plus the Sentimental Entertainers perform several more Berlin tunes.

 

FAMOUS FACES: John J. Audubon, who came to America as a young man, devoted his life to the painting and publishing of The Birds of America. The colorful paintings—and the Audubon name--are still widely recognized today.

 
 
 

TIME CAPSULE: The Corvair was popular when introduced in 1960, even becoming Car of The Year. But the compact become the poster car for consumer advocate Ralph Nader, which ultimately doomed the model.

 
OUR AMAZING WORLD: Inspired by John Audubon's work, we decided to look at some modern images of birds in America. We present both video and still images for this new, periodic Sentimental Reflections feature.
