NANCY:  Everyone knows Stonehenge in England.  But how many know about FOAMHENGE??? On April Fools Day in 2004, artist Mark Cline unveiled his replica of the famous prehistoric monument in Natural Bridge, VA, near Roanoke.  Per the all-knowing Wikipedia:  Quote: The 'stones' are composed completely of styrofoam and painted gray, weighing approximately 420 lbs. apiece. They are stabilized with embedded 2.5-inch-diameter (6.4 cm) piping, extending from a concrete footing to the top of each stone. The entire structure was assembled in about ten days, as opposed to Stonehenge's construction period of about 1000 years. END QUOTE  In 2017, the exhibit was moved to Centreville, Virginia, 25 miles west of Washington, DC (very far from Roanoke).   Again, as with Washington’s famous tooth, if you go, please please let us know as we would love to see this!

CHRIS:  Point Roberts, Washington, just 35 or so kilometers south of Vancouver, British Columbia, is part of the US, but to get there you need to drive through Canada. It is considered an exclave, as it is surrounded by water on three sides, and Canada on the fourth.  Its population of 1300 jumps to 4500 during summer, thanks to vacationing Canadians.  American and Canadian ways of life and business are intertwined, and there’s a lot of border crossing by both citizens depending on the services needed.  For example, in British Columbia, it is illegal to cook a burger medium-rare, so Canadians will go to Point Roberts to satisfy this urge.
