January 26th was India's 63rd Republic Day. The passengers of Finnair Flight AY201 from Helsinki to New Delhi on Jan. 17 got a very cool and pleasant surprise when the crew started dancing to a Bollywood tune. Congrats! Finnair and crew for coming up with a different idea to show your passengers you follow the FACT principle : Fun, Attention getting, Collaborative and using Technology to spread it.

One of my favorite institutions in the US is the Smithsonian. I have been a subscriber/member for over 14 years and love going to the museums on the National Mall in Washington DC.
I recently discovered the Smithsonian HD Channel on TV Channel 565 on DirecTV. I love this channel and would highly recommend it.
The programs I specially love:
- Mighty Ships: Loved the episode where they show Stena Britannica the super ferry ship between Hoek in Holland and Harwich in England. The episode on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise was thrilling to watch.
- Aerial America : saw a great episode on New Mexico with mention of UFOs.
- America Wild and Whacky
