That's Life sung by Frank Sinatra
(lyrics007.com)
"That's life, that's what all the people say.
You're riding high in April,
Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune,
When I'm back on top, back on top in June...
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate,
A poet, a pawn and a king."

Buffalo Bill
"In 1886, Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show played to over one million people
in New York city. It was one of the most elaborate shows on earth: there
were cowboys and Indians, sharp shooters including the famed Annie Oakley, hundreds of horses, buffalo, elk and donkeys, and more than two hundred
cast members, all moving about in a sweeping western landscape of mountains
and plains. Soon after the show's stunning success in New York, it would go
on to dazzle crowds in London, Paris, Rome and Barcelona, cementing the
legend of the Wild West in the minds of people around the globe. Behind the extravaganza was one man - a meager plainsman turned international
celebrity and frontier hero, whose meteoric rise to fame was made possible
only by his genius, and his hucksterism. His name was William Cody,
better known to the world as Buffalo Bill."

Kit Carson
"To some, he was one of America's greatest heroes: a brave and loyal guide
who laid out a path for the westward-moving nation, an Indian tracker who
could follow any trail, and a fearless warrior featured in dozens of best-selling novels. But to others, Christopher "Kit" Carson was a villain who waged a merciless crusade against Native Americans. In the end, his contradictions
would define his legacy - and tell the true story of how the West was won."

Call to scrap 'anti-teen' device

estimated to be 3,500 of the devices, known as the mosquito, in use across
the country. Their sound causes discomfort to young ears - but their frequency is
above the normal hearing range of people over 25. The Children's Commissioner
for England says they should be scrapped as they infringe the rights of young people."

THE HIGHWAY CODE - a song
"A marching body on the road should keep on the left-hand side
It should have look-outs at suitable distances at the front and rear
And at night they should carry lights...
When you have stepped off the kerb onto a Zebra Crossing
Which must have black and white stripes...
But allow approaching vehicles ample time to give way...
Do not get on or off a bus or tram while it is moving..."

England. As the travel agent, you have to compile information for the
family as to what there is to do in England, where to stay, and how
to travel. You have to plan activities for each member of the family,
so get ready to research!"
