Americanized Banner by John Cox

John Cox has created the Americanized banner. Could you figure out the different American elements in the image?

Do you have tips on merchandise services and sites that provides gear and promotional products? I will set up a shop on CafePress and Spreadshirt.

My long-range goal is to create a foundation that will be organized to support the American sense-of-life in different ways.

From This Day in History:

On April 25, 1917, jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald is born in Newport News, Virginia. She was called "The First Lady of Song," an honor whose meaning is captured in a compliment paid to her by the great composer Ira Gershwin: "I never knew how good our songs were until I heard Ella Fitzgerald sing them." Quite apart from the quality of her voice, there was a warmth and intelligence behind it that gave even melancholy songs a plausible tilt toward optimism. Billie Holliday or Frank Sinatra might fully inhabit the dark side of a torch song, but Fitzgerald, in the words of the critic Frank Rich, "could turn any song into an oxygen rush of bouncing melody that reached the listener's ears as pure, untroubled joy—the eternally young sound of a young country." 


I purchased Frank Sinatra - A Man and His Music (1965) [Amazon affiliate link] several years ago and I think it is a great example of an American TV show.
